This may be one of the most disgusting things a liberal has EVER done. >:-(

Perfect example of hate speech, AND a threat?? Won't this "incite" some lunatic to commit a violent crime against Governor Palin and/or her family?????

Is this something the FBI should be aware of????

I am just furious right now. Absolutely livid. If some conservative had done that "as a joke" with Obama's picture in it with a bead on HIS forehead, what would the results be??? I seriously doubt there would be much laughing going on!! >:-(

No, that's not very likely.

Very poor taste though.

FaceBook is running numerous Kill Sarah pages.

I reported each one. Yet they remain.

Liberals promote hate filled vitriol as mandated by their leader.

Liberals can do anything they want. They control the press and they control the educational system that keeps churning out more liberal “journalists”.

I’m sure this crap was started by “civil” Keith Olberman. I was channel surfing and stopped on his show for about 5 seconds, seriously, as he was going to break and he was basically saying Palin changed the sights to a surveyor’s sight since the AZ shooting.

If you don’t put anybody in it it’s pretty brilliant. Putting somebody in it, especially somebody getting blamed for Saturday’s incident, is dumb. But empty it’s a total slam on the anti “hate symbol” bill.

Liberals are all “let’s you and him fight”...

they intend to incite violence and then have their “State” put down their political opposition.

This is a liberal’s wet dream - to use the power of the state to punish and kill their ideological opposition.

While I agree that the “surveyors marks” “crosshairs” quibble is beside the point and sounds kind of silly (far better to point out that BOTH sides use bullseyes to “target” vulnerable districts) - it is kind of unusual for the “cross hairs” to EXTEND PAST THE DIAMETER OF THE “SCOPE”.

The image used was clearly that of a circle with a vertical and horizontal line that extended well past the circumference of a circle.

I know most liberals have never actually looked down a scope, but let me assure them that it doesn't look like a circle with lines that extend past the circumference of the circle.

Liberals think that they are so smart. But, when faced with a controversy between the use of a surveyor's mark and a gunsight reticle, they will display the reticle and call it a surveyor's mark. Idiots.

They embarass themselves. Again.

I understand your point. I just don't think their logic makes sense no matter whose picture is in the scope graphic.

It's just a picture. If some idiot wants to shoot somebody, they're not going to do it because they saw a picture on the internet.

This really does show the insanity of these people. They’re calling for people to kill Sarah Palin because some nut killed a republican appointed judge and a nine year old kid.

Sadly I’m afraid some liberal nut job will spend a month or two posting on conservative websites to build up their resume then WILL try to kill a politician just so they can say they were incited by Palin.

The criminal class is comprised almost exclusively of liberals. Just take a look at the prison population. How many of them are Constitutional Conservatives?

NONE!

The exception would be Tom DeLay, a true American Patriot, who faces wrongful imprisonment by the corrupt regime currently in power.

EXACTLY. But Palin IS so controversial, especially after the concerted MSM/Liberals/Democrat attacks on her since Saturday’s shooting. I’ve read SOOOOOOOOO many stupid comments online from stupid liberals who actually believe Palin caused Giffords to be shot! If there’s another Jared Lee Loughner out there, would he/she be pushed over the edge with something like this, unfortunately?! :-(

May God place a hedge of protection around Sarah Palin AND her entire family and keep them safe from any harm!

I really don’t think anymore people hate Palin than hated her before Saturday. Those insane liberals will always be there. And as soon as one of them dies of natural causes or accident, another one is born and the brainwashing begins in the public school.

I thought it was the liberals who said that conservatives weren't smart enough to see the nuances and subtleties of issues.

1. It's not a surveyor mark, it is a gunsight.

2. It's not a geographic area, such as a district or state that sighted, it's an individual.

But facts don't matter to liberals, just feelings, and they feel hate, outrage, and fear.

As the creators of (and buyers of this t-shirt) well know, there is a boatload of difference in putting that mark over a person’s face/head/body and over a map of a congressional district.

As a private citizen, can Sarah sue?

Exactly, this a clear gun sight right over someone’s photo with all the tell tell marks of a gun sight, the dashes, the circle in the middle, etc... If there was a shirt like with Obama’s photo the purveyor would be immediately arrested and likely sentenced to a long prison term.

The symbol on Pailn’s map was at worst inartful. It does somewhat resemble a scope. Notice I said somewhat. I didn’t see it that way, but I can see where someone might get the idea. Especially if the media constantly reminds them. She’d have been better off using one of those google maps tear drop symbols. Although, the media would accuse her of targeting just the same.

It took that daily kooks fool 2 min after the shooting to put the blame on Palin so here is my question, how the heck did he know he would need that map that Sarah made..I mean that map was made so long ago, I actually forgot all about it but this guy KEPT IT..how come..makes me wonder that since his own site had a pretty nasty death threat made against Giffords on his site, that he needed to draw attention away from them and put it on Palin

“These guys want to incite CWII.”

No question about it. But what they don’t realize is that they are, by and large, weak - weak emotionally, weak spiritually, weak physically. We, on the other hand, are at the other end of the spectrum, for the most part.

Yes, I believe that Tom DeLay, much like Scooter Libby, is being persecuted by this current regime. They hounded Libby to his grave with a bunch of trumped-up hoodoo. (For a long time, all you heard was Valerie Plame, Valerie Plame; and most of us still don’t know who Valerie Plame really is.)

I was a surveyor...

A circle or triangle with a cross is commonly used to identify a control point... Many times these control points are arbitrary and are used only as points of reference for our equipment.

In other words, these are the points the surveying equipment sets on top of or uses to dial in the equipment before surveying.

Looking down the sight of a piece of surveying equipment looks very similar to the scope of a gun. There are cross hairs and dashes...

Well after years of reading here, this post finally made me get an account and register. I just wanted to let you all know that Printfection (the company that is web-hosting this particular t-shirt) allows for general feedback in their “Contact Us” tab. I sent a polite note highlighting this particular t-shirt indicating that I found it abhorrent for anyone to try to profit on this tragedy, particularly by targeting someone in such a violent way. This t-shirt also seems to violate their User Supplied Content Policy, which bans t-shirts that are “generally offensive or inappropriate” or “designed or intended to harass, threaten, or intimidate others.”

Might be time to let them know that if they think it’s appropriate to allow their vendors to express their first amendment rights in this way, we might use our first amendment rights to publicly expose their company.

Thanks to all for the amazing information here. Off to donate now!
