Patrick Kennedy rebuffs Sarah Palinís words
Politico ^ | Jan.10, 2011 | Brett Coughlin

Posted on 01/10/2011 7:41:48 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY

Patrick Kennedy, who lost two uncles to assassins’ bullets, says there’s an obvious connection between the violent rhetoric of today’s politics and the massacre in Tucson.

“When Sarah Palin puts targets on people’s districts? Or you have 10,000 signs on the mall during the healthcare battle saying ‘Bury Obamacare with Kennedy’? When the vitriol and the rhetoric is so violent, we have to connect consequences to that.” said Kennedy, who left congress two weeks ago after serving eight terms representing Rhode Island.

Sarah Palin did not put a target on Gifford’s district. But, then again, this came from a Kennedy, so what can you expect.

Let's see...

JFK is shot by a leftie...
RFK is shot by a palestinian...
And a leftie shoots a leftie Congress "person"...

I'm failing to see the connection to Palin.

The connection is so obvious that I have completely missed it.

patrick kennedy is wromg. Just what is he referring to about 10,000 signs etc? He is delusional from too much alcohol. I was at the 9-12 rally. There weren’t 10000 of any kind of sign. kennedy is as blithering fool.

I realize this is Patrick, not Robert Kennedy, but I think this still applies:

http://freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2129179/posts

Has Patrick called out Bill Ayers dedicating his book Prarie Fire to Sirhan Sirhan, the man who actually SHOT and KILLED his uncle?

Okay, you all want to know the rhetoric that’s relevant to this situation, PATRICK YOU VILE KENNEDY WORM?

It’s the rhetoric that came from this left-wing Pelosi-loving nutjob’s mouth. About how he hated Giffords for voting against Pelosi. About how he couldn’t believe he had voted for her and how he’d never vote for her again because SHE WAS DEAD TO HIM. She had betrayed him!

If the left wants to get on anyone for “rhetoric” GET ON YOUR OWN DAMN PEOPLE, UBER LEFTIES!!!! IT WAS YOUR EFFING GUY WHO SHOT A LIBERAL CONGRESSWOMAN HE VOTED FOR BUT WAS PISSED AT!!! BECAUSE SHE WASN’T LIBERAL ENOUGH FOR HIM!!!

RUSH LIMBAUGH DIDN’T CONVINCE HIM TO GO AFTER DEMOCRATS BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T BACK PELOSI. I listen to him all the time and he has NEVER said that. THE GUY DECIDED THAT ALL BY HIMSELF, being a hardcore liberal wacko.

So go suck it, MSM. Suck it, Liberal Marxist whores exploiting the situation for political gain.

That's the kind of talk you hear when a politician (or entertainer) is in the sunset of their career. They'll say anything for that one last minute of attention.

Kind of reminds me of Cindy Sheehan.

I truly feel sorry for your uncles John and ‘Bobby’ - they must be turning over in their grave at what a louse you've become.

10,000 signs? I am sure he was out there counting. The Left owned media made sure that the true number of demonstrators on the mall never got reported. The "Bury Obamacare with Kennedy" signs were a mere handful of the very desperate attempts to tell those ramming Obamacare down our throats, that we do not want Obamacare! The real disrespect was that they did not listen.

Oswald was an arch leftist. He defected to the Soviet Union.
Sirhan was a radicalized Syrian. Patches apparently has picked up some brain damage to go with his pickled liver.

It's now obvious to a simpleton, the target of the left is the Tea Party in general and Sarah Palin in particular.

We must be over the "target".

However, I believe they are showing some effectiveness here. The left-wing folks I know are foaming-at-the-mouth over this. Ready to throw the entire constitution aside to stop this "vitriolic" speech. Most of them never heard of the word before now.

This will require effective rebuttal or Palin is done (assassinated). This meme has legs beyond the hard-core left. Even moderates are saying "yeah, Palin and Limbaugh and Beck need to be controlled" and "there ought to be a law against blah blah blah".

Sarah needs to copy Michele Malkins' post on the vitriol of the left and call them on their hypocrisy. She'll need 3 or 4 speeches on this matter as well.

No smiles.

"I'm failing to see the connection to Palin. "

We Freepers KNOW there is no connection.

But the left has launched EVERY THING THEY HAVE at this and the "connection" between Palin and the shooter is getting traction.

Sometimes makes me wonder if this kid was not groomed for a false flag operation. And, if there are others.

If anyone had the slightest doubt that the leftnuts aren’t scared silly by Sarah Palin, this should convince them. The scoundrels wouldn’t be going all out to destroy her unless they are convinced she is going to trounce their man. This kind of orchestrated assault had to be planned long before this tragedy, and the fact that it has nothing to do with Sarah means nothing to the scum who want to destroy her. This attack is coming right out of the White House.

I could only find ‘Several people held up preprinted signs saying, “Bury Obama Care with Kennedy”’ from http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/13/us/politics/13protestweb.html

I’m guessing that the NY Times was probably less hyperbolic and that most of the protesters didn’t much care for the tone of the sign, since Kennedy’s death was fairly recent at the time.

Patrick, as per usual, could not help but embellish (aka, lie). The male Kennedys simply cannot help themselves.

The Kennedy’s considered elected office a “family business”.

Treated for cocaine use as a teenager; went bar-crawling in Palm Beach, Fla., with his father and his cousin William Kennedy Smith, who was later acquitted at trial of raping a young woman that night; accused of shoving a security officer at Los Angeles International Airport; crashed his convertible into a concrete barrier at the Capitol while under the influence of prescription drugs.
