Death Threats Towards Palin at Unprecedented Levels-Left To Blame for Mood of Nation?
Religio-Political Talk (RPT) ^ | 1-13-2011 | Papa Giorgio

Posted on 01/13/2011 9:54:52 AM PST by SeanG200

HotAir is reporting an aid saying that the death threats to Palin have increased dramatically:

"An aide close to Sarah Palin says death threats and security threats have increased to an unprecedented level since the shooting in Arizona, and the former Alaska governor’s team has been talking to security professionals.

Since the shooting in Tucson, Palin has taken much heat for her “crosshairs” map that targeted 20 congressional Democrats in the 2010 mid-term election, including that of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who was the main target of Saturday’s attack."

[....]

Is the Left responsible for this spike in hatred? What is — God forbid — Sarah Palin is hurt? Do the pundits, personalities, etc., have any responsibility for this — using their own thinking displayed with connecting Palin to this tragedy? Here is a conversation from FB I had on this topic.

[....]

a) hated Bush

b) 9/11 truther

Democrats in America are evenly divided on the question of whether George W. Bush knew about the 9/11 terrorist attacks in advance. Thirty-five percent (35%) of Democrats believe he did know, 39% say he did not know, and 26% are not sure. Republicans reject that view and, by a 7-to-1 margin, say the President did not know in advance about the attacks. Among those not affiliated with either major party, 18% believe the President knew and 57% take the opposite view.

c) antiwar

d) hated Christians

e) was an atheist

f) Left-wing pothead

[added later]

g) fixated with Giffords 3-years ago ~ before Obama, Health-Care, and the like

h) didn’t listen to radio

i) didn’t watch TV

They'll sadly shake their heads and say 'but after all she asked for it'.

Crazies with “Bambi Syndrome” hate Palin because she “hurts animals”. They are just as bad as leftist crazies who hate her because she loves God and America.

The left is vicious and violent. Hence Anita Dunn’s reverence for Chairman Mao, who slaughtered 60 million.

Why would a conservative do this since she is on the same side of thinking as they are. Purely leftest hatred thinking again.

Look! Lets be fair here. The Democrats deserve that much.

You know damned well they’d throw a pep rally for her. Obama would bring out the t-shirts. Indians, possibly Hispanics would bless the event. Leading Democrats would decry the violence. Right wing talk show hosts and politicians would be taken to task for causing the violent act. Attendees at the local university would clap, scream, whistle, and boo at all the right places.

They’d even try to make things safer by urging folks to tone down the rhetoric. They’d try to take more of our guns away.

They might even name one of the bills after her.

And of course, the death threats to other Conservatives would go up by 200%, because Obama urged more understanding.

The utterly irrational anti-Palin hatred I hear in my office tweaks me to no end. I had to ask a manager to stop the ‘Kill Palin’ “game” that had been going on and she reluctantly did so after asking me (incredulously) if I liked Palin.

The poll results for whether Bush had foreknowledge of the 9/11 attack is pretty amazing. Half of the reality based community thinks he was.

OH Pahleeze. If ANYONE is responsible for 9-11 it is Bubba clinton . REMEMBER it was Bubba that told the SUDAN to let USAMA BIN LADEN go on his way to Afganistan.

Don’t even go there.

Exactly what the left intended! They WANTED to ramp up the hatred for Palin! They know she has nothing to do with it. They want her to drop out of politics because they are afraid of her.

The left is despicable.

Yep, your right about that. Sissy Matthews said the other day that Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, were still not off the hook, until there was more evidence. I’m paraphrasing.

I fear for her safety and for the safety of her dear family. As much as I admire her, I’m not sure I want her to run in 2012 or not. Something dreadful happens to her and Lord knows what it could do to this Nation, and if it could ever be repaired.

It’s worse than that. What the poll is getting at is how many Democrats buy into the LIHOP/MIHOP stuff (i.e, Bush Let it happen on purpose/Made it happen on purpose). This is full blown conspiracy theory nuttiness, and the poll shows us that something like half of Democrats think it’s true or might be true.

I have been TRYING to reread my copy of the “Libertarian Communist Manifesto”. Once you wade through all the Bulls**t. you find that their Anarchist creed is nothing more than what the DumocRATs are trying to achieve right now.

The coming inflation shock is going to help them in their goals of destroying America.

tell them that you do like her and then ask them why they hate her, what has she done for them to hate her etc.

I guarantee that they cannot answer the questions with facts but will say she’s stupid , she incites violence etc but then again ask them to give examples please.

I do and I love to because of their dumb looks they give

THERE IS ONE, AND ONLY ONE PERSON RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SHOOTINGS IN TUCSON, AND THAT PERSON IS JARED LEE LOUGHREN.

How he became screwed up in the head, and why nothing apparently was done other than to cover it up is another matter.

Shove it back into the Left’s faces as they are shoving it upon us. We can’t let them set the debate. THEY ARE WRONG.

They're exposing themselves. They're doing it on their own. All we have to do is watch and peacefully chime in every now and then.

Glen Beck had some politician from Pennsylvania on his show today that was furious because the person he was being interviewed by appeared to disagree with him. You should have heard the rage in that guys voice! It was pure, unadulterated hate. Maybe he'll have the clip on his show tonight. I hope so.

I wrote a book on the evolutionary psychology of Liberals. The theory was that the Liberal is an evolved psychology, designed to seek personal advantage at the expense of their group (As opposed to Conservatives, who are programmed to compete in group competition to better their species, and it’s evolutionary prospects, regardless of individual personal advantage).

Under this theory, our species exists as a large group of competitors, dedicated to our species advancement regardless of our own personal success, but infiltrated by a perniscious, selfish psychology which exhibits traits the group would revile, if they were exposed. I state in the book (written a year ago) that the Liberal fears nothing more than being exposed, as this, historically would have led to a purge, and Darwinian destruction. Thus, when acrimony and division grew, the Liberal will panic, for fear of being outed. That is what they are programmed to do. That is the root of the current calls to all “Come together.” If we up the acrimony and division, the Liberal will go to ground, as under Reagan. They are programmed to. They are a treasonous subversive walking the fine line of a traitor. They want us to think they are of our own, as they selfishly betray us.

Yes, they will use any future violence to call for coming together, so they may continue to hide amongst us. We must seek to continue to portray them as the enemy, and increase the partisanship and attacks on their character, and control they seek.

Sadly, they will seek to use attacks on Republicans to try and continue this come together crap, so don’t be surprised if we see some real violence directed at us in the future.

God Bless Sarah Palin.
