Originally I hadn’t planned on blogging about the shooting, to be honest as terrible as it was, in the end it’s just another shooting. However, a friend posted the transcript below of the eerie statement Congresswoman Giffords made in March about Sarah Palin’s use of gun imagery on her target list. Let’s hope the idiot that shot her was not acting because of it.
I know the conservative wing of the Republican Party and their talking puppet meat heads, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck, think that their rhetoric has no consequences. But Sarah Palin may have really stepped into it, below is an eerie video clip and the transcript of a statement Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords made upon finding out that her district was on Sarah Palin’s target list, where she used gun sight cross-hair imagery to illustrate her point.
A link to Palin’s list is below:
Unfortunately since I’m not one of her friends on Facebook I have no access to the imagery. It’s not that I think Sarah Palin is responsible for a nut job pulling the trigger and shooting a US Congresswoman, but Ms. Palin and the talking meat heads mentioned above need to understand the risk they run using the vitriol they use.
The eerie video:
The transcript of what she said:
“we’re on Sarah Palin’s targeted list, but the thing is, that the way she has it depicted has the crosshairs of a gun sight over our district and when people do that, they’ve gotta realize there’s consequences to that action.” ~ Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, March 25th, 2010
