Skip to comments.Salon Publishes Call for Murder of Sarah Palin
Posted on 12/18/2010 7:45:58 AM PST by kristinn
Liberal online political magazine Salon.com published a letter to the editor yesterday that called for the murder of 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.
The letter was written in response to a mocking article at Salon titled, Good Morning America's painfully friendly interview with Sarah Palin by Alex Pareene.
Pareene snarkily sums up the GMA interview, "The interview was basically split into a couple of distinct sections: How awesome is your family, how bad is Barack Obama, how awful are people who criticize you, and how awesome is America?"
The first letter published in response to the article calls for Palin to be electrocuted by a cattle prod by convicted dog abuser Michael Vick, "Vick gets a pet to torture and we get rid of Palin. A win-win for everyone!"
That letter has apparently sat in the pole position under the article in the Letters to the Editor section since it was posted "Friday, December 17, 2010 12:33 PM ET."
The Letters section for the GMA article lists 65 letters published over four pages. Each letter has a "flag" button to call attention to Salon editors about objectionable comments. It seems no one at Salon finds it objectionable for the site to publish an explicit call for murder.
Salon's Editor in Chief, Joan Walsh, is a regular on MSNBC and CNN. Will Chris Matthews, Joe Scarborough or Wolf Blitzer attack Walsh for prominently publishing a call for the murder of Sarah Palin? Will Walsh do the right thing and publicly apologize to Palin and pull the letter?

" I Have An Idea"
" Let's let Michael Vick keep Sarah Palin as a pet instead of a dog. It will be safer for dogs and maybe we'll get the satisfaction of having Vick electrocute Palin! You know that after listening to that voice for longer than 30-seconds Vick would be lunging for the cattle prods.
"Vick gets a pet to torture and we get rid of Palin. A win-win for everyone!"

I have an idea: anyone that hurts Ms. Palin dies, sound good?
I would hope that the SS and FBI both pay him a visit.
Well done for taking the time to read these morons. Make sure you stop & take time out for yourself afterward - I’m sure it must be emotionally draining to read their bile.
She’s not a Presidential candidate and they’ll argue that a cattle prod never killed anyone and the whole event is being overblown.
Tweet that, kristinn. I’ll RT.
I think Liberals need prunes, chill pills, and a sense of humor. These folks are some sick puppies!
This is a terroristic threat of murder made against a public figure. Where is law enforcement? Where are the owners of Salon?
Aren't these the same folks that protest when some coked up minority goes into vaporlock after being tazed?
Seriously, why aren’t these sorry f@#@! in jail?!?
Salon is known for this stuff. There is a post on Salon’s web site by some unhinged liberal that actually says he wants to kill all Republicans. The post has been there for years and Salon seems to be okay with it.
Mental illness disguised as humor......
Not gonna happen. If Sarah was darker skinned or a mooslime then protection would be offered.
These people are sick. They’re emotional cripples.
Then again, they’re leftists.
I have an idea: Sarah can take care of herself against this sort of hypocritical and hateful bigot. In the even that someone tougher than Sarah comes after her (and there aren't many liberals in that category!), think about Todd finishing the Iron Dog in 4th place, the last 400 miles with a broken arm. I would not want to go up again a man that tough when he's in perfect health! I have another idea: Let's just put Sarah in the White House, where she belongs from 2013 to 2021. The liberals can then take Obama off to play with Vick, and the difference is that Obama would probably like it, and Vick could easily control the pansy from our White House.
What is Salon? And who cares?
Skip the pretenses and go directly to CWII, winners take all.
I'm with ya! But, let's use her real title "MRS.", not ms. Thanks.
