No kidding. She did. Sarah Palin told everyone that was mad about the newly christened health care reform bill to shoot every last freaking Democrat that was responsible for it. Need proof?

Oh, and that OpenBeak thing, in case you don't know, is a Blackberry app. I have it too. And like Gov. Palin, I sit around watching my kids play sports, whilst thumbing out directives to carry out my dirty deeds. Is there a hit list, you ask? Sure as shootin'! It's right there below. Yeppers, I am that obvious. I want people dead. And I advertise it on Facebook and Twitter for the entire world to see.
Seriously, I cannot even believe I am having to address this. And yes, I have to. Showing up in my Yahoo alerts email today was this snippet from The Hook, emphasis mine.
Gas party? FBI investigates cut line at Perriello home

The day after former VP candidate Sarah Palin encouraged her Facebook friends to “print pink slips” for members of Congress who voted for President Obama’s “disasterous” healthcare package, including 5th District Representative Tom Perriello, Politico reports that the FBI is investigating a cut gas line at the Charlottesville home of Perriello’s brother—who is married and has two small children—which County spokesperson Lee Catlin is calling a “suspicious incident.”
Hmmm, I thought, I suppose they are trying to somehow make a connection...a very loose connection...sort of like the one the plumber made under my sink which led to a flooded kitchen floor last week. Ah well, I figured, what's one dumb author?
Unfortunately, the unfounded connection didn't end there. Later today I found out the Anchorage Daily News had published an article entitled "Palin's firearms-themed rhetoric called dangerous". Well, again, I thought, they've never been a cheerleader for her, even though she's provided them more income in the last few years than they would have ever had alone, so what would one expect?
Most likely, you can tell where I'm headed with this story. The search engines easily bring up the insane and completely baseless logic that Gov. Palin is making a literal call to arms, effectively ordering the heads of Democrats be brought to her on a platter. In a desperate attempt to draw the attention away from the health care fiasco that even the president's own party is just now discovering the entrails of, the media and their "bring down Palin at all costs" blogger buddies have launched a Can You Believe She Ordered Democrats Killed? campaign.
Let me remind you these are the same people that went bonkers when that nutjob started shooting up the Pentagon last month. "He was a right wing extremist and 9-11 truther!" they published everywhere. Not surprisingly, they shut up real quick when it came out the guy was a long time registered Democrat. Whoops.
The ADN had one thing right in their article title though..."firearms-themed." Yes, her words and chart had a theme as such to them...she is after all an avid hunter and gun owner advocate. Be aware though that Gov. Palin isn't the only politician or author to ever use such terms. Here's a few, just from a quick Google search, emphasis mine. You could get the idea from them that the Dems are just targeting and bombing away! And if you search the key phrase "Democrats take aim", you will get a looooong list.

It's beginning to dawn on Democrats that they may not win control of the House or Senate in the November elections, so a pre-emptive blame game has begun.

Even after those examples, some critics will point to the rumored threats that were hurled at House reps this past weekend as proof that we on the right are violent. I've seen no proof of those threats, but I will tell you that the violence that was done to the American people and our Constitution during this past week has been life threatening in more ways than one. People are mad to say the least. For Democrat lawmakers to feign ignorance and not understand that point is pure malarky.
But let ME be clear...to accuse Gov. Sarah Palin of purposely encouraging and inciting physical trauma toward those spineless Democrats responsible for the health care fiasco is extreme, slanderous, and without merit.
No more than the Democrats as a whole are at fault for the Pentagon shooter or the whackos that threw eggs and tomatoes in Gov. Palin's direction during her book tour or the Black Panthers that in 2008 stood outside the PA polling place with a nightstick, than is Gov. Palin at fault for those that do illegal acts of cutting gas lines or throwing bricks.
Stop making things up, media and left wing bloggers. Pictured below are the real people you should be concerned about...worry about them. Stop them. Prevent them from hurting America.
