“It was simply cross-hairs like you’d see on maps”
“We never ever, ever intended it to be gun sights. It was simply cross-hairs like you’d see on maps,” said Rebecca Mansour on the Tammy Bruce radio show. Moreover, there was “nothing irresponsible” about the image, and to draw a line connecting Palin and Saturday’s shooting is “obscene” and “appalling.”
I’m going to say what a lot on my side are probably thinking but won’t say out loud, as I’m not equipped with a fully-functioning filter. I realize that this guy was mentally ill (as are many conservatives, if we are to judge by what is said on Glenn Beck, etc.). But I hope to hell the investigation finds a solid, irrefutable right-wing connection, for numerous reasons. It will hopefully be so concrete, the media will have to stop this bullshit “both sides do it” horseshit. In 2011, the right owns violent rhetoric. Period. Maybe some people will have their come-to-Jim-Jones moment, and start to realize what a vacant, ignorant, mean-spirited and dangerous twat Sarah Palin is. You can only polish a turd so much, before the smell of shit is overpowering.
Oh, and lookie here, breaking, on all places, on Fox News… did someone get a conscience? From a memo from the DHS:
Intervention by someone?* no direct connection – but strong suspicion is being directed at AmRen / American Renaissance. Suspect is possibly linked to this group. (through videos posted on his myspace and YouTube account.). The group’s ideology is anti government, anti immigration, anti ZOG (Zionist Occupational Government), anti Semitic.
But of course, promoting violent anti-Semitism is primarily something liberals do, right?
