Palin used surveyor symbols, not crosshairs

Hat tip to Extremely Extreme Extremist who pointed out long ago that Palin used surveyor symbols, not crosshairs.

Good point.

but we’re dealing with people who consider anything that shoots a bullet as an “automatic assault weapon”

You and I may get that, but the nutballs will still see something that isn’t there. Like seeing a great orator and master politician in our President. It ain’t there.

Facts are pesky things but hysterical fanaticism is the great hider of truth. Us Constitutional fetishists will be at the point of their spear of blame.

Dayum, I almost sounded smart there for a second ;)

For the media to blame anyone prior to facts coming out is wrong. To name a person (Sarah Palin) is below contempt to me. How can someone actually say that Palin wanted innocent people dead or injured? What today’s events taught me is that the media will use any means necessary to reduce the Tea Party movement OR anyone who speaks their mind.

Funny how the media didn’t make a fuss about what THIS guy said..

This from the Hot Air comments section:

Congressman Paul Kanjorski, the Pennsylvania Democrat, on Gov.-Elect Rick Scott: “Shoot Him”

http://spectator.org/blog/2010/11/09/kanjorski-on-gov-elect-rick-sc

“That Scott down there that’s running for governor of Florida,” Mr. Kanjorski said. “Instead of running for governor of Florida, they ought to have him [sic] and shoot him. Put him against the wall and shoot him. He stole billions of dollars from the United States government and he’s running for governor of Florida. He’s a millionaire and a billionaire. He’s no hero. He’s a damn crook. It’s just we don’t prosecute big crooks.”

I was at work today, only saw bits and pieces of news.

But, I am struck that the narrative is that talk radio hosts are inciting the lunatic fringe to violence.

Is there any evidence that the shooter is anything but an apolitical nutcase? Is there any evidence that he was inspired by talk radio or conservative political rhetoric to go after a Democratic congresswoman????

I heard that he likes Hitler’s Mein Kampf and the Communist Manifesto. So he is into political movements involving socialism, fascism, and communism. If this is true, where did this narrative come from that he is inspired by conservative tea party talk radio rhetoric to shoot a Democrat congresswoman?????????

Keith Olbermann goes after people by calling them the WORST PERSON IN THE WORLD. I suppose that nightly rant could push a crazy person over the edge, but the liberal media never points that out. Instead, the media talks about toning down the rhetoric like that’s somehow the answer.

Rhetoric isn’t the cause. In fact, rhetoric probably prevents a number of these tragedies from happening. If a crazy person hears his views being expressed forcefully, he’s probably less likely to go on a rampage. But if he doesn’t ever hear his views being expressed, he might be more likely to go on a rampage. So let’s continue to exercise our freedom of speech and not change our behavior just because some nut went off the deep end for reasons God Himself probably can’t even explain.

Facts mean nothing to Libtards with an agenda.

Let us remember that a Teacher lost his job for using the word “niggardly” (cheap) while teaching class.

That is the reality we face. Outside of the Survey Points being called “crosshairs”, Sarah Palin is known by every Libtard, and the general public unfortunately, as the person who said she could see Russia from her house.

Goebbels, Stalin or any Tyrant knows that when you control the flow of information, the useful idiots will swallow it hook, line and sinker.

Fox gets 3 Million viewers while the Networks get 30 Million viewers and still the Left squeals like a stuck pig.
They want it all, nothing else will do.

This whole, bullseye, target, sights, etc. is a bunch of crap.

Palin was using it as a metaphor!

Business people refer to target goals, target profits, target markets. In a conversation, when people agree on a concept or action they'll will say, "You're on target."

It's all a red heiring argument anyway - the crosshairs / bullseye metaphor is nothing new and has been used by people of all political stripes, including news organizations, and it has to do with targeting, not violence. It has been used widely for other issues and stories outside of politics. Anyone with a modicum of intelligence knows that. The Daily Kos themselves painted Giffords with a bullseye on one of their political posts. This whole issue is just another liberal lie.

Look at this trash being posted to harrass Jesse Kelly on his facebook page as we speak:

http://www.facebook.com/#!/permalink.php?story_fbid=131679140228972&id=359472301041

It's difficult to describe the stupidity these people display - and supposedly people taking a moral high ground - Giffords is in the hospital, people are dead, and they get the idea to go to the facebook page of a former political opponent to harrass him with nonsense? That's what comes to mind in the wake of a tragedy?

Clearly not crosshairs. Also ABSOLUTELY ZERO evidence Palin or tea party politics motivated the gunman yet MSM (repeatedly) are connecting the dots. Have they no shame...?

From yahoo news:
“Giffords expressed similar concern, even before the shooting. In an interview after her office was vandalized, she referred to the animosity against her by conservatives, including Sarah Palin’s decision to list Giffords’ seat as one of the top “targets” in the midterm elections.”

That mind-numbed idiotic AZ sheriff giving the news conference earlier today also kept bringing up ad nauseum his theory that "hateful political rhetoric" was the cause of the massacre.

I kept waiting for him to blame Palin or Rush....I bet he had trouble containing himself.

Well, the liberal mental cases were outing themselves all over the tube today, including Geraldo who also blames Sarah and the Tea Partiers and who made a jackass out of himself, as he's been doing for years.

“Good point.

-That only applies when it’s not one of their own speaking. Loads of politicians are sport hunters and own guns, such as John Kerry. Barack Obama has mentioned the word gun more times than I can count. Politicians have their way of playing, sorry, but someone needs to discuss or belittle the Democrats’ constant accusations made, in a joking manner even, and I mean a politician as well. Because honestly, it shouldn’t just be me as a regular U.S. citizen who sees how full of trash most of this political banter is.

Will make no difference. Liberals have decided from the onset of Obama’s regime that any opposition to him is inherently violent and racist. The proper stance for any opposition to Obama is to keep quiet and/or go along with all the left-liberal schemes. In short, make nice, and only utter an occasional feeble protest.

Aided by the Internet. Google cross hair or cross hairs and then click on images. Many city bred people like myself, are not necessarily morons, but are just not knowledgeable about hunting, guns or rifle scopes. I get my impressions of them from pictures that I have seen. FWIW, until the discussions yesterday, I had never heard of the Palin map.

Doesn't matter if it's crosshairs or not (which it is not, but that's beside the point). Fact is, those are seats that were targeted by SarahPAC for funding to defeat vulnerable democRATS in the November election. What better symbol could be used to indicate this accurately?

The leftwing media would have us believe that by somebody painting a crosshair-like or target-like symbol on someone or something, it is an invitation to attack or shoot that person or thing. If that were the case, Target stores everywhere would be bullet-ridden death traps, and surviving shoppers would be looking elsewhere to do their shopping.

The shooter was a liberal/democrat.But the mainstream media lies and says that Conservatives like Palin and Beck made this liberal shoot these people. These are actions of pure evil by the democrat media. The democrat mainstream is lying. The media is lying to destroy Palin,conservatives, and freedom of speech by just shouting evil lies from a trillion media outlets.

As I’ve said before the democrat mainstream media is the center of evil in the world. Can anyone agree with me now as they see how they are lying now?This is no surprise as all marxist/democrats are evil.
