Sarah Palin had a website which identified Democrat candidates as "targets" on a map to be voted out, as dozens of other political maps had...yet Palin was ludicrously attacked and smeared as encouraging violence...Arizona massacre: Should Sarah Palin share the blame? read one headline.
Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, blamed Palin as well as Sharron Angle for the shooting: I think [their] statements are totally irresponsible and theyre not without consequences.
Elsewhere, the Washington Posts Dana Milbank blamed Palin and Glenn Beck for the shooting. Both are finally being held to account for recklessly playing with violent images in a way that is bound to incite the unstable, said Milbank during an appearance on CNN Reliable Sources.
Of course, the shooter was certifiably insane, and the incident had nothing to do with politics...
Yet here we have a liberal group, the Southern Poverty Law Center, which on a map identified the location of conservative organizations as "hate groups" ....and a political zealot used the map to show up with a gun and shoot up the place !
Shockingly , the shooter Floyd Corkins told FBI agents that he chose FRC as a target based on the liberal Southern Poverty Law Center hate map.
In case you were unaware, the Southern Poverty Law Center has designated FRC a hate group solely because of the conservative organizations position on gay marriage...
FRC president Tony Perkins has called on the Southern Poverty Law Center to take down its hate map.
The day after Floyd Corkins came into the FRC headquarter and opened fire wounding one of our team members, I stated that while Corkins was responsible for the shooting, he had been given a license to perpetrate this act of violence by groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center which has systematically and recklessly labeled every organization with which they disagree as a hate group, he said.
The mainstream media silence is deafening..
Liberal response no doubt will be an attack on FRC....Obama himself was against gay marriage until a few months ago, was Obama part of a "hate group" also?
