Salon Publishes Call for Torture,Murder of Sarah Palin
Big Journalism ^ | 12/21/10 | Kristinn Taylor and Andrea Shea King

Posted on 12/21/2010 2:14:34 PM PST by Nachum

Liberal online political magazine Salon.com published a letter to the editor Friday 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!”

Michael Vick, the starting quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles, is a convicted felon who spent time in prison for dog fighting and animal cruelty.

She has scared the sh*t out of liberals—that’s what she’s done.

I have yet to hear a SINGLE coherent justification for libtards’ vitriol against Sarah Palin. Fervent emotion without a shred of logic.

Tells me she’s 100% right.

This guy really needs to get a visit from some nice FBI agents. He is seriously disturbed and needs to be watched carefully.

If they think GMA asked Palin softball questions, they must have been following the MSM playbook for the questions they asked Zero for several years.

Just based on the description on this thread, it was sarcasm. We conservatives really need to have thicker skins and not take this stuff so literally. Best thing to do is ignore the nonsense and focus on the substantive issues.

I'll give you one. She is a prominent Republican who stands a better than even shot at getting the GOP nomination for president in 2012.

She is by no means the first, nor will she be the last Republican to draw mindless hatred from the fringe Left. Best thing is to keep it all in perspective and don't overreact.

She is prominent. She is not one of theirs. She might win. The left has NO ground of morality therefore anything that promotes their cause and tends to bring them power is Right and Good. They do not distinguish between ballot box and bullets other than as to effectiveness.

Appalling as this letter in Salon is, we know full well that the left has always been basically totalitarian in nature and always wants to silence dissent. That Sarah Palin has become a thorn in the side of the left is well documented and their constant whining about and ridicule of Palin is becoming legendary due to it's scope and intensity - against a wife and mother who doesn't even hold an elective office but speaks out on important issues with a conservative voice that is a huge irritant to the left.

That the Salon website would be so foolish as to publish a letter from some loon that describes the torture and murder of Sarah Palin (for what? Being a conservative?) is a bit unnerving. Even though we all know that when it comes to Sarah Palin, the blind hatred is always there (on the left), seeing some weirdo write it out and having it published is disturbing. Of course, the letter will be dismissed by the left as 'satire' and soon we'll hear "can't you conservatives take a joke?", the trusty liberal fall-back when some leftist loon goes a bit too far with a public statement, such as the 'kill Palin' letter published in Salon. I just hope that the average American sees this and realizes - even if they're not fans of Sarah Palin - that the left are nasty, totalitarian ideologues that sneer at the American concept of 'personal freedom' and basically hate America, especially the 'bourgeoisie'. In short: wake up, America!

To a leftist there is all the justification in the world. They do not distinguish among actions and methods beyond effectiveness for getting them power. They have no God---no- they believe humanity is God and they are God's brain therefore they can and should do whatever it takes to impose what they see as the good solution which is their total power.

Does it really surprise anyone that the left says crap like this?

Quite frankly, I believe that the next civil war in this country is going to start in 2012.

*What has she done to deserve torture and death?*

She tells the truth and loves America.

Two things that will earn hatred that burns as bright as a thousand suns from Leftists.

Facts and truth are like kryptonite to a leftie.

Please do not disregard these allusions to harm Sarah Palin as "jokes" or "satire" or "sarcasm" etc, because Liberals do not think with the same brain cells as Conservatives . . . there are even brain wave tests that prove this, so don't go flaming me. Look it up.

Remember the Wisconsin elected official who shot his television set because Bristol Palin won enough votes to stay on Dancing with the Stars?

The mentality of the Left: If someone upsets you, then destroy that person and you will no longer be upset.

It is not logical. It is a decision based on FEELINGS. Never forget, Liberals FEEL and Conservatives THINK. That's why it's so difficult to discuss anything of substance with a Liberal . . . they're too 'into their feelings' while you're trying to give them facts and logic.

All it takes is for one liberal kook to think that this article gives him/her some kind of subliminal 'permission' to harm Sarah Palin for the "L-K" to actually follow through.

She didn't kill the Down Syndrome kid ...

It's that simple and that stark.

Every picture of her and Trig burns the leftists' hearts, sears their consciences with white hot flame.

They know they would have killed the kid (many of them actually did kill their kids). She didn't, and they hate her with a demonic fierceness for it.

Didn’t blogger Hal Turner get 33 months in the Fed pen for basically writing the same thing about Federal judges?

Of course, nothing will be done in the Salon/Palin case. In Obama’s America some animals are more equal than others.

It isn’t just her they don’t like. They don’t like any of us. She just happens to be out front, and to have captured their imagination. Just remember the last 8 years of BushHitler, remember what they did to Judge Thomas, Judge Bork, and so on.

They don’t like her because she is like us, and she symbolizes us. They’ve got a big problem with God, Nature, and... us.

Stop making excuses for them!! There are no such things as "Feelings". What we call feelings are simply thoughts we refuse to acknowledge or name.

Scratch any one of these crazy unhinged liberals/Marxists and you'll find an inferiority complex. They hate Palin cause they envy her and they are afraid of what they perceive her existence says about their own lives.

I know plenty of people that I believe are idiots, wrong on policy, and that have not earned my respect, I feel absolutely no desire to harm them, I simply ignore them. What kind of moron would spend any amount of time hating someone they think so little of?

No Wolfstar that is precisely the wrong thing to do(grow thicker skins) the lesson of the graveyard that was the 20th century is when folks a calling for your severed head to be impaled on a sharpened stick to believe that they in fact want to do you & your loved ones harm & make the needed preparations to defend yourself up to & including lethal force. To fail in this is basically setting yourself up for grief.
