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.

Yeah, incited by rhetoric like, “Hey, Ted, have another one before you take that little minx for a ‘strategy session’, heh, heh, heh!”

Patrick Kennedy inherits dad’s millions

Patrick Kennedy inherited three trust funds from his late father, according to the disclosure. Those are in addition to a fourth trust his father had already granted him a number of years ago.

Two of the trust funds Kennedy inherited after his father died were established in 1926 and 1936 by his grandfather, family patriarch Joseph P. Kennedy, whose children included Edward Kennedy and President John F. Kennedy.

Patrick Kennedy’s share of those two trusts was worth between $6 million and $30 million combined, and he received more than $105,000 in income from them last year, the form said.

Joseph Kennedy established at least four trusts for his children during his lifetime so he could preserve and pass on to his heirs the fortune he’d amassed in real estate, finance, liquor and other industries during the first half of the 20th century, according to his biographers.

The Kennedys have not been on Forbes’ list of the nation’s 400 richest families since 1994. The magazine estimated the family’s combined fortune peaked at $850 million in 1990, which would be roughly $1.4 billion in today’s dollars.

Reading the headline in virtually every news outlet last week that ‘after 63 years, there will be no Kennedy in office’ I wiped the tears from my eyes and had HOPE in this CHANGE .. but, no, Patrick just can’t keep his mouth shut and maintain a low profiled. Will the Kennedys ever actually exit stage left ??

“When Sarah Palin puts targets on people’s districts? [Says Kennedy]

Note to Patrick Kennedy, (he of the video taped violence against a female airport security guard and frequent visitor to drug rehab facilities...)
This is a target:

Photobucket

Patrick, you may even find that particular target familiar as it was published by your very own party, the Democrats, in 2004 on a map. You libs actually said that people living in Blue States were "behind enemy lines." Remember?

Photobucket

Patrick, THESE are map symbols, as used on Palin's map:

Photobucket

Photobucket

Palin never used "targets." She never used "crosshairs."

Photobucket

So please Patrick, get your facts straight and stop attacking Sarah Palin for something she didn't do.

Why not turn your attention towards your own party and fellow liberals?

Congressman Patrick Kennedy Has to Be Reminded About JFK
4/28/10 at 11:00 AM

Rhode Island congressman Patrick Kennedy will have some explaining to do at the next family reunion. While downing vodka at a Capitol Hill bar last week — only hours after giving a speech on his own battles with substance abuse — Kennedy undermined the presidency of his own uncle, John F. Kennedy:

Our tipster adds Kennedy was in a lively mood, joking with others at the bar and even boasting about President Barack Obama, calling him “the best president ever.”

When our tipster countered: “Wait a second. What about your uncle?” — referring, of course, to President John F. Kennedy — the younger Kennedy jovially responded, “Oh yeah! Good one,” and slapped our tipster’s back, he says.

“Oh yeah.” Oh yeah. Classic. In Kennedy’s defense, he had consumed more than six shots at that point, but let’s be honest, that’s hardly an excuse for a Kennedy.

Yeah, let’s blame our sorry state on violence-infused rhetoric and political hate speech ...

* “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.” Barack Obama in July 2008

* “I want you to argue with them and get in their face!” Barack Obama, September 2008

* “Here’s the problem: It’s almost like they’ve got — they’ve got a bomb strapped to them and they’ve got their hand on the trigger. You don’t want them to blow up. But you’ve got to kind of talk them, ease that finger off the trigger.” Barack Obama on banks, March 2009

* “I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!” Barack Obama on ACORN Mobs, March 2010

* “We talk to these folks… so I know whose ass to kick.” Barack Obama on the private sector, June 2010

* “A Republican majority in Congress would mean ‘hand-to-hand combat’ on Capitol Hill for the next two years, threatening policies Democrats have enacted to stabilize the economy.” Barack Obama, October 6, 2010

* “We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us.” Barack Obama to Latinos, October 2010

   The shooter had a temple of skulls in his backyard which is something very unusual for a Sarah Palin fan. He doesn't have any of her books, but he likes Mein Kampf and The Communist Manifesto while Palin reads books like 'Liberty and Tyranny' and enjoys books by C.S. Lewis. There is a huge difference between C.S. Lewis (Chronicles of Narnia, Mere Christianity) and Adolph Hitler (author of Mein Kampf). He also planned the shooting in 2007 back when very few people (other than Alaskans) had heard of Sarah Palin.

  Incredibly, Paul Krugman (Princeton economist), Bill Press (author: How the Republicans Stole Christmas) and many many other well respected geniuses have made a connection between two people who are not only disconnected from each other (the shooter didn't know of her in 2007 and they don't appear to correspond via email), but are exact opposites.

Hell, most troops now use electronic, or other types of modern sight systems (EOTech, Trijicon, Elcan, etc.). Many of these use simple DOTS (or dots and circles, triangles, etc.) in red, yellow, etc.

Are these panty-waist, hand-wringing, bed-wetting, left-wing nutjobs going to start whining and complaining when DOTS are put on political maps?

Probably.

The signs were printed and distributed by the American Life League a Catholic anti-abortion group. If you check their website you’ll find support for this. Were there 10,000 I doubt it, were there 5,000 probably not, 1,000 not likely. My guess there were less than 100 of them at the rally on the mall.
