Does Sarah Palin Incite Violence?

By Adele

In a word, YES. Palin claims to deplore violence, but packs her speeches and writings with it. On Facebook, she wrapped her invective in basketball so she can claim she’s being quoted out of context. (Italics and caps are all hers.)…

“March Madness battles rage… In the battle, set your sights on next season’s targetsshot across the bow… your leaders will be in the enemy’s crosshairs, so you must execute strong defensive tactics… crossfire is intense… penetrate through enemy territory by bombing… use your strong weapons — your Big Guns… shoot with accuracy… it takes blood, sweat and tears to win… Every possession is a battle; you’ll only win the war if you’ve picked your battles wisely… No matter how tough it gets, never retreat, instead RELOAD!”

Nope, no violence there. Is she KIDDING?

I think Palin’s unintentionally metaphoric — “shot across the bow” is nonsensical in her ground combat scenario — expressing her true thoughts in her colorful, garbled way.

Remember, she thinks Rush Limbaugh’s daily heartfelt hate speech is satire, then got all bent when Family Guy satirized her.

Unfortunately, Palin grossly underestimates her base’s ignorance. When she tells them to take out their Big Guns and RELOAD, many may take those words as marching orders.

Palin’s book sold 2.2 million copies, but I’d bet my treats only a fraction ever got cracked open because her supporters’ lips got tired just trying to decipher the jacket blurb. And now HarperCollins has signed her to write ANOTHER one.

Palin’s rhetoric is incendiary, and she’s too dumb to see it. Sooner or later that ditz will whip a big crowd into a frenzy and find herself caught in a bloody riot where everybody but she is packing heat.

Or she’ll inspire some crazy redneck to plot an assassination. All it’s going to take is one serious murder attempt for Palin’s days as the unofficial leader of the Tea Party or any other party to be over.

Sarah, you better pray that one of those bullets you keep calling for doesn’t ricochet. Payback is hell.

    Adele, I’m glad you’re keeping me au courant on Palin. I’ve gotten to the point where I can’t stand to watch her or read about her — not good as we should know our enemies. It struck me, when I read her basketball analogy, how testosterone-laden it is. And do you suppose when they’re in the throes of passion, she tells Todd to penetrate and reload?

    Touche, Adele! I wouldn’t want to be a fly on the wall in the Palin bedroom. I pity Todd. He isn’t half the man she is.

    I think Palin was a basketball player as a girl. Isn’t that how she earned the nickname “Sarah Barracuda?” She does seem to go overboard in trying to be one of the guys with all the fighting and sports references.

    Hi Adele! I think Palin should have sexual reassignment surgery since she sounds as if she at least thinks she has the cojones down there already. She disgusts me and I avoid her like the plague. Just commented in another blog that I’m surprised there is no body count yet from the rallies this weekend and that I wonder how many of those Winnebagos had the family arsenal in it. With a so-called Christian militia being caught I think gun violence is coming soon with these loons.

    I know I’m beginning to sound like a broken-record, but incitement to violence is a crime.
    Why hasn’t Palin been arrested yet?

    Yes, I have to question evolution too-not it’s existence, but the notion that because humans walk on 2 feet and have bigger brains that they are also more intelligent. That’s debatable with people like Palin on the loose. I think a nice padded room in an Alaska asylum has her name on it. On a side note-Mom and I watched Jamie Oliver in WV last Sunday. How many Tea Party parents did those kids belong to who don’t know how to use a benign table knife but probably know how to shoot a gun!

  6. catsworking says:

    noh8, she hasn’t been arrested yet because there’s nothing to pin on her yet. She thinks she’s being so slick, but just wait until one of her little Tea Parties turns into a riot, particularly if she ventures into a blue state. THEN maybe we’ll see her wearing the bling she deserves — CUFFS!

    I don’t think she’s too dumb to see it. I think she knows exactly what she is doing. She is evil.

    “Live by the sword,die by the sword.” Was that from the Bible or a Seinfeld episode?

    Zappa’s mom

    She’s an idiot and a wing nut. Seriously. Reading some of the teabaggers’ comments on various boards shows me they honestly have no concern as to whether something is actually the truth or not, all they want to keep doing is spouting propaganda in the hope that someone will believe their BS. Kind of like Hitler used to do. After all it worked for him.
    Zappa, that’s from the Bible.
