Palin Targeted in Violence-Tinged Tweets Following Arizona Massacre
FoxNews ^ | 1/13/2011 | FoxNews.com

Posted on 01/13/2011 3:17:31 PM PST by Danae

Critics of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin have turned to Twitter to post hate "tweets" suggesting that "she should be shot" and "assassinated."

A four-minute video montage of the the "tweets" -- apparently sent after Saturday's massacre in Arizona that left six people dead and 14 wounded, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords -- was posted to YouTube on Tuesday.

"My hatred for Sarah Palin continues to grow... I think this woman should be assassinated. Sorry about chya," was a message posted by "jenbobbi."

Another user, "misskate83," posted: "Sarah Palin should be shot for her encouragement of fanaticism against Democrats."

Calls to Twitter and YouTube were not returned on Thursday.

Srsly...hello! The lights are on but no one's home....

Talk about stuck on stupid.

One of the tweeters in this story got taken out of context and I think that got settled out, but the rest are legit. There is a lot of this crap on twitter.

If some libtard thinks this is some game that has to go tit for tat, the law of unintended consequences will be most unkind. These folks are completely insane.

Ignorant people, often in their teens or early twenties, seem to enjoy hating conservatives. Gives them a purpose, I suppose. However, their hypocrisy is so glaring, you would would have to be wearing a welding mask to not see it. It would be ironically amusing if it weren’t so scary. May God continue to protect Sarah Palin, who’s only ‘crime’ seems to be her opposition to leftist policies and her continued popularity despite the left’s incessant attacks on her.

I am so happy that Rep. Giffords is on the mend, I pray she lives a long and happy life.

However, I wonder, since she is on the road to recovery, why nobody from her family has issued a statement. I think a statement from them, asking for the blame game to stop would carry significant weight. John Green, Christina-Taylor Green’s father who is buried his daughter today has spoken out that the one person to blame is the shooter.

Making direct threats is, but I guess this isn’t considered a direct threat.

Well shoot, ya think every Imam tells each individual follower of islam to go commit xyz jihad in America? No, they make general brainwashing statements and suggest that those ‘targets’ should be dealt with because they are evil. Those Imams are threatening us. We get that. What those twitter leftists et. al. are doing is no different.

Gosh, in fact, it looks exactly like what is being done to Sarah Palin. In this case, it IS personal, it IS directed, and it IS coming from the left. That mass murderer in Arizona is crazy. What the leftists are doing with that nut, is agitating deliberately against Sarah Palin.

The nut has the excuse of being a nut. The leftists threatening Sarah Palin are doing it deliberately. That concerns me.

It is so moronic as to be laughable, only this isn’t even remotely a funny topic. At all. Its deplorable.

If the MSM ever go around to calling them out on it, they would simply change the script to say that those posts were done by “conservative operatives” intending to make kind-hearted well-intentioned liberals look bad.

Its sobering to realize that the legacy media could care less about honestly reporting the truth - they are a completely activist press now.

They've always been biased to the left, but recently they've thrown any pretense of impartiality into the trash.

The rise of alternative media - the first competition they've had since the birth of electronic media, has driven them batsh*t crazy.

It’s the “cool” thing to do, hating Sarah Palin and us stoopid Conservatives. After all, the “cool” people all hate Sarah Palin because she’s not “cool”. - Obama has ginned them up with his rhetoric, and now they do his dirty work. It’s the Alinsky way, don’t you know. - I pray this stuff will backfire on them big time and that the Lord will deliver us from this mess.

It’s kind of a conundrum here: If Twitter makes little effort in blocking the violent-themed tweets, it would likely encourage more violent rhetoric; OTOH, if they block it, then we can’t identify who’s making the statements in order to assess whether they would be likely to carry out a violent action.

The DNC Leadership had better wake the hell up. Their extremist minions are going too far. They are creating the very things they decry, and the DNC leadership is doing nothing but egging it on. It seems as if they might have gotten a clue... maybe. But I don’t think it will hold them back long.

That is a profoundly sad statement.

These sad young twits thought that they were doing something historic when they helped elect Barry the communist. Bravo losers. These Red Diaper Doper babies will be wondering in the future why the deficit has been run up so high and they cannot afford the things they want because hyper-inflation has happened. I personally am one of the last baby boomers and was brought up in a conservative middle-class household. I hope my parents live long enough to spend all their money. I hope that red-blooded Americans who earned a living piss away these twits entire inheritance and then some. The entitlement generation deserves to learn what real hardship is and they can just sit around and twitter about how messed up things are.

Are you channeling "Boy Blue" or Loughner? Even in jest, FR does not need things like your first sentence available for anyone to see and use against us.

In fact, within the present heated environment, your entire comment reflects badly on conservatism, per se. I suggest you consider contacting the mods to have it pulled.

Your call...

Dumping Fox News, and dumping the Republican party would be the best thing for her, and us!

They have sent a signal (all of them including rightwing officeholders, pundits and press), that they have ZERO intention to help or support her.

Much less, defend her. After the despicable display of human weakness they showed for the last 5 days. (And let me add, that the simple act of real men defending a good woman comes into play here for me.)

No, they have made it clear now that they will refuse support of any kind, AND they will actually support her leftwing enemies instead (as they showed in their support for Obama last night).

She has a serious streak of Western Libertarianism anyway (as does her husband), she will hold back nothing, she will appeal to the TRUE rugged individualists, the true Americans.

She could make history either way.

By winning or losing.

And have the added joy of telling the Republican Party they are dead and just don't know it yet.

Make them pay for their decades of kissing liberal arse.

Make them hurt, make them feel some pain for once.

Nope. Palin is a "public figure" and thus you can say anything you want. As long as you don't actually take any action. Same for the Prez..they can (and will) come knock on your door to check you out, but there will be no charges.

Where the heck have you been the last five days? Faux news is just an establishment mouthpeice as witnessed last night and in the wake of this tragedy. Conservatism is exactly what has been under attack after the shooting. The cowardly websites are my choice to delete. You can keep on reading and supporting those who acquiesced to the twisted logic of the left, it's a FRee country. I think times like this really weed out the weak.

DUmmie FUnnies 01-12-11 ("Simply Hypocritical": Head KOmmie Kos and KOmmie BoyBlue swell the ranks)

SIMPLY HYPOCRITICAL
Tune: "Simply Irresistible"

They say we're vitriolical
And deeply diabolical
They say that we're so horrible
Our hate speech is deplorable

See them rant, see them rage
Anger fills every page
But the hate they detect
Is a trait they project

They like to condemn the Right
But now I find they're
Simply hypocritical
Simply hypocritical

They say when we're rhetorical
It can't be metaphorical
The language must be literal
Unless it's by a liberal

They can wish Bush would die
Or hang Palin on high
With no sin of their own
They can cast the first stone

They like to condemn the Right
But now I find they're
Simply hypocritical
Simply hypocritical

(Simply hypocritical) They're so pure, there's no imagery that's violent
(Simply hypocritical) They're so sure there's no hatred of their own

It's unbelievable, the story that they spread
They say we're guilty, that the blood is on our head
But Beck and Limbaugh now, they're wishing they were dead

They like to fight the Right
Now I find they're
Simply hypocritical

They're so pure, there's no imagery that's violent
(Simply hypocritical) They're so sure there's no hatred of their own

Hypocrisy on overkill
The word is pharisaical
The evidence is plentiful
Their posturing is Pittiful

See them rant, see them rage
Anger fills every page
But the hate they detect
Is a trait they project

They like to condemn the Right
But now I find they're
Simply hypocritical

They're so pure, there's no imagery that's violent
(Simply hypocritical) They're so sure there's no hatred of their own
(Simply hypocritical) They're so pure, there's no imagery that's violent
(Simply hypocritical) They're so sure there's no hatred of their own

I believe from every bad thing that happens an opportunity arises. If anyone watched the “pep rally” last night in Tucson, you had an invaluable learning experience placed right in your living room.

You saw an event held at a taxpayer, state funded school with screaming, hollering, leftists. You saw a President of a state funded school conducting a rah rah event. But to top it off, he bowed to the President of the USA. At the end of the event...he actually bowed. What do we take away from this???

The adults in that group are lost to us and society. They, along with their youthful counterparts were disgusting, rude and displayed uncommon disrespect for the type of event they attended.

The youth in the group saw adults acting like uncouth morons. But, their meager educations didn’t begin in that building last night. It started years ago in Govt. funded public schools where other leftist adults were teaching them in classrooms.

The opportunity: Take back our Schools. You won’t have youth that think threatening another human being’s life is okay. They won’t live in a parallel universe created by group of Utopians that worship lizards and feathers. In other words take your kids and grand kids back into classrooms where respect, decency and education matters. Teach them to be individuals and that actions and words have consequences.

And dare I say...take them back to Church and Synagogue. Let them learn about the REAL God. Put something real and more important than themselves back into their lives.

Let’s face it folks, we are killing our kids in this country. Their lives, their childhoods, their educations and their souls...it is all up to us.

I was talking about the terminology you used. It was almost exactly that used by a queer loser on Kos -- as posted by Jim Robinson here:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2653556/posts

"Boy Blue"'s words: "Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords is dead to me now."

Your words: "Too late Faux news, you’re dead to me."

~~~~~~~~

Beyond a doubt, the libwackos are running phrase searches to find anything (like "dead to me") so they can use our own words against us-- and smear ALL FReepers.

Just a word of FRiendly caution -- that's all. As I said, "It's your call..."

Why should I be concerned with something daily kos said in 2008 or whenever it was? I support their right to say what they said. I don’t think it is really advisable for a headline to say that about an individual and I wouldn’t do it but it’s their call. Basically you jumped on me for using a very common phrase to describe how I have left behind the bullcrap on cable tv. I’m not sure how that displays your supposed maturity.
