Is Sarah Palin Responsible For The Shooting In Arizona?

| Filed under: PolitikWhoopi GoldbergSad SadSarah Palin

This should be a lesson to you all. Even the insinuation of violence should not be tolerated. Just look at what it could lead to.

Last year, Sarah Palin posted a deplorable graphic on her Facebook page: a map of 20 Congressional districts with "crosshairs" over the area. These districts were "targeted" because their congressmen and women were supporters of the new heath care reform. One of the names "targeted" was Gabrielle Gifford, who was brutally shot down in Arizona this weekend during a meeting with constituents.

Now, at the present time, there has been no evidence to connect the gunman to Sarah Palin or the Tea Party movement. However, we want to show you a clip from The View that aired last year, right after Sarah posted this horrible picture to her followers. (above)

Listen to what Whoopi Goldberg has to say about this. We think she really puts the whole situation into perspective.

Perhaps Sarah didn't have anything to do with the tragedy that occurred this weekend, which we might add led to the death of a nine-year-old girl, but she should be held accountable for her poor choice to post such a disgusting image. Is that the America that should be portrayed for the next generation? One covered with crosshairs to take out those who think differently then ourselves?

Shameful. We're completely appalled.

    I don't think she's the only responsible party here… she, and everyone else who condones, or applauds, this type of political rhetoric has a little blood on their hands today. Good for Elisabitch for showing common sense.



  2. 2

    If you are using that kind of logic then a picture of your fat ass would make everyone starve themselves and you would be responsible for everyone being anorexic. So is all of hollywood responsible for plastic surgery because they flaunt their ideal beauty down our throats? Stop drinking the kool aid you idiots!

    Democracy is supposed to work like this - the people vote and then EVERYONE accepts the outcome and works for the betterment of the country. Now we have a vote, and those opposed do everything thing they can to bring down the winner even though it brings down the whole country. If Palin and her ilk really wanted to put America first, they would do their best to help make Obama successful. Instead they incite violence and then act surprised when some freak actually does something violent.



  4. 4

    I do not like Palin at all, but it was not her who pulled the trigger. It was some little asshole, he's the one who murdered these people.



  5. 5

    anyone who sits here and tries to "connect" the dots and hold anyone besides the crazy person who did this responsible is a asking for bad business. the idea of crosshairs in a target image is tacky, but it was tacky LAST YEAR! no one said anything about it then… and it was to get attention, and cross hairs on an image to indicate "being at war" with something i think makes sense. whether or not it's right or wrong from a marketing stand part it did its job.

    if the crazy person who did this was a tea partier, republican (we're not the same) democrat, blue, green, yellow, purple, girl, boy christian, muslim, atheist, or whatever… cmon the person was crazy! its really ridiculas to try and connect anyone to something so horrific just to instigate your own hate and dislike for the woman is deplorable perez… up til this point this is "gossip" about a potential tie to sarah palin. keep your gossip about celebrities… so until sarah palin is wielding an umbrella at a paprazzo just up.

    While I may not agree with what Sarah Palin does or says, it seems to me that America needs to get its act together about the gun issue that is causing distress all over the country in countless ways. I'm sure the founding fathers never foresaw the advent of AK47s or the like. Americans are good people who have let this Constitutional issue get so out of hand that no one in government wants to tackle the issue. "God Bless America" indeed as no one else seems to be looking out for her.



  7. 7

    Shame on you Perez. How dare you use this event to further your own political agenda. This man first of all was crazy. Second, there has been NO evidence of Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck or the Tea Party having anything to do with this and how EVIL of YOU to suggest it. This creep was not allowed into the army and was kicked out of college because people feared he was crazy and would hurt them. This creep accounted Hitler's book and Karl Marx's "Communist Manifesto" as his favorite reading. His high school/college friend said he was a liberal (as is she). He even contacted this Congresswoman in 2007 long before the nation heard of Palin. Your slap happy reporting is irresponsible and wrong. Also the Daily Koz has wiped off their site an article by a constituent of this Congresswoman saying that she was "DEAD" to him/her prior to the shooting because the Congresswoman voted against Pelosi as minority leader. You and this Whoopi person are disgusting and vile. You are a hate monger yourself. Perhaps if you actually read something other than the New York Times and OUT you may learn something. Shame, shame on YOU you ignorant fool!!!!



  8. 8

    Are you directly responsible Sarah palin - no.
    Did you speak & act like a leader - NO!
    It is time to lower the rhetoric!



  9. 9

    Were you appalled when Left Wing daily kos did the same thing Perez? You're an idiot. Stick to gossip not politics. thanks



  10. 10

    "Perhaps Sarah didn't have anything to do with the tragedy that occurred this weekend, which we might add led to the death of a nine-year-old girl"??? Seriously?!?! I'm a conservative (not a Palin fan at all) and I admit that Sarah's use of crosshairs was inappropriate, insensitive and despicable. BUT….What you're doing here, continuing the hate-mongering, is even WORSE. Blaming Sarah Palin for what happened is irresponsible, ignorant and hypocritical. All you're doing is pointing the finger and criticizing someone "who thinks differently then ourselves (you)", dum dum. There is only one person to blame for the actions of this lunatic and that's the lunatic himself.



  11. 11

    More and more people who know the shooter have been coming forward and saying that, if anything, he was a LIBERAL!! Don't hear anyone making a big deal about that do you? Sarah Palin absolutely never meant that map to condone violence. That's is totally absurd. The left just goes completely out of its way to make her a villain. She's not my choice for president, but she's not the devil that the left would like her to be. The person that did the shooting, right or left, was psychotic, end of story.



  12. 12

    Dame Edna!! :D

    1) The DNC had an identical map in the 2004 election. Theirs had bullseyes on it and was labeled, "Behind Enemy Lines".

    2) The current President is constantly calling people who dont agree with him his "enemies" and say that they need to be eliminated.

    3) There was no crying like this over 8 years when people would rally against Pres GWB with signs calling for his assasination.

    4) Rahm Emanuel sent someone a dead fish because he wouldnt vote with him. This mafia related stunt was considered so funny by our own President that he gave Emanuel a dead fish when he left office.

    5) Rahm Emanuel, according to the Huffington Post, had a dinner with donors and other democrats about taking Republican seats. He would scream the name of a Republican and stab the table with a steak knife and then scream "DEAD". All joined in.

    6) The Palin crew COPIED the Dems map with the targets on it. Palin didnt create it.

    STAY OUT OF POLITICS! Especially shit you see on The View. You have no clue what the hell you are talking about.

    This is about some psycho, not politics. This guy started to target her 3 years ago when he met her at a town hall meeting and he considered her to be too stupid and part of a consipracy theory.

    Fan the flames fat boy…fan the flames of stupidity.



  14. 14

    Re: bbtaddpole – incase u didnt read the article, its not a theory he came up with on his own, OTHER PEOPLE are saying it and hes just reporting it. so shame on you for being so stupid



  15. 15

    Re: slite – Agreed!!!!!



  16. 16

    no, the little shit with the gun who pulled the trigger is at fault. Stop blaming everyone else but the actual person who who pulled the trigger. One person at fault here and one person only!

    Politicians are using this as an opportunity to post blame on the Republicans/Tea party/Sarah. I am not a Republican/ Teapartier or a Palin supporter but it is plane wrong to point the blame at anyone but the shooter. He was mentally ill. If anything let's blame the friends and family who all are coming out saying they knew he was crazy and didn't do anything.



  18. 18

    I don't think she has nothing to do with this, this is pure coincidence "and no I'm not a Palin fan" there is one person to blame for this an that is the Shooter, we love to blame others and point fingers at others that have nothing to do with someones actions.. This guy had lots of signs and everyone that knew him ignored those signs.. I wish we would spend more time praying for the victims and their families, also for the shooter's family they all need our prayers but no what do we do instead? we fuel more hatred in our hearths.. Shame on all of us!!!



  19. 19

    Re: justasurfer I agree, although this stupid mental case didn't have an AK, he had a super large clip which made no sense. Where would anyone need such a large clip? On a hunting mission through the safari of where??? Yet I am sorry I think having crosshairs on the country is irresponsible. We are at war for Christ sakes. Stop talking about "reloading" Palin. We are spending billions on a war with terrorists, and this woman is talking about "reloading" with our elected officials. No sorry, that is not right. All those terrorist idiots just need a little tiny thing to get their panties in a twist as it is. I would think she would know better.



  20. 20

    Well said, bbtadpole. This disgusting douche Perez is no different from the other liberals like Whoopie using this tragedy to further their agenda.



  21. 21

    This Loughner guy started causing problems for Gifford back in 2007. The world wasn't even introduced to Sarah until Aug 2008.

    Liberal bashing and hating of conservatives is a much more widespread problem than a diagram that only the craziest of people would take as a invitation to violence.



  22. 22

    I find it rather deplorable that you would in any way insinuate that Sarah Palin had anything to do with a nut job who would do that kind of horific atrocitiy. I guess its okay in your book to not write bad on celebs. but alas its okay in your book to try and connect Sarah Palin to that mad man. Disqusting



  23. 23

    Hmmm there were a couple of comments with facts about the liberal hate mongering being far worse than anything conservatives ever thought about saying or doing that have suddenly disappeared!!



  24. 24

    PERHAPS Palin had nothing to do with it? She absolutely had nothing to do with it. There is absolutely no connection between the two instances. A political figure was killed and one was wounded, and some may call it assassination, but there was no political agenda involved. He was a deranged youth. Why would a democrat go after a democrat? It doesn't make sense. You should know freedom of speech is precious, an even though Palin's graphic as in poor taste, I think it is being twisted out of shape. She never meant to target the people in those districts, but rather the politics that shape the area. So is it no longer PC to say "shoot the health care reform bill down?" You're intelligent, Mario, and this dirty water mopping should be beneath you.



  25. 25

    Super creepy - thanks for posting!



  26. 26

    Oh dontcha just love how the left loves to play the blame game. How funny that no one on that side of the fence wants to blame the one who is totally responsible. The 22 year old man who took drugs, and says his favorite books are the communist manefesto, and other Communist books. But NO! it is not PC to put the blame on the perpetrator. Poor widdle mixed up druggie. It was societies fault. BS. The blame solely belongs to the shooter. It took them 20 min. to place the blame on Palin. It is not even the fault of gun laws. That gun did not shoot itself. The trigger was pulled by a madman. Period. This is the same kind of BS that says Dont Blame Muslims for terrorism. Stupid is as stupid does.



  27. 27

    The crazy man in question has nothing to do with either political party. As much as I dislike Mrs. Palin, to even suggest that she or any tea party politician had any part in this terrible tradgedy is rediculous and stupid.

    He targeted Gifford after speaking with her several years ago. When he asked about government using language and grammer to brainwash and control the people (yes, the man was THAT crazy), she gave her answer in Spanish. This allegedly angered him and he planned to kill her from that point on.

    Honestly, the man was insane. His peers and former teachers recognized that he was a danger, but couldn't do much about it.



  28. 28

    What the hell? "Now, at the present time, there has been no evidence to connect the gunman to Sarah Palin or the Tea Party movement" Yet you step off the ledge of sanity and libel the woman?

    The Left is fucking sick and will exploit ANY opportunity to smear their fellow Americans. What a disgrace.



  29. 29

    How about the CRAZY person who SHOT and KILLED those people is the one responsible? Do you think any normal person would take ANY graphic as an invitation to actually kill a human being? If we follow that logic, then the people who create violent video games, TV shows and movie are all responsible for the violence that is in the world. Come on people, use your brains!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  30. 30

    If you are going to blame Sarah Palin for this sick mans actions then you truly make me SICK!! WTF is wrong with you people?? Should Obama be blamed because he said in one of his speeches if " they bring the Knife then we will bring the gun" Come on!!



  31. 31

    I'm absolutely appalled by this post. I read Perez for the celebrity gossip. And the fact that you are nearly blaming Sarah Palin and Republican's for this is just an outrage. If this would have been Palin who was shot you would be applauding the shooter. I, myself, being a Republican am not a huge fan of Sarah Palin but I in no way think she was responsible. I think this shooting was disgusting and I condone all of it, as are many other Republicans. The shooter was insane and mentally unstable and expressed his feelings of distaste for all government, not just Democrats. This is a truly awful posting and I have to say I am going to stop reading your site for awhile because I think you should stick with what you know, celebrity gossip.



  32. 32

    Re: rosebud99 – i couldn't agree more. While I don't hold Palin responsible for pulling the trigger, she needs to take responsibility for the tone she sets for her following. Using triggers to mark states that need to be "taken back" is irresponsible and ignorant. She is gleefully breeding hate. How can that be good for our country?



  33. 33

    Re: slite – Thank you for having a brain!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  34. 34

    She's no more responsible than Obama when he said all of the following:
    -
    Obama: “They Bring a Knife…We Bring a Gun”
    ** Obama to His Followers: “Get in Their Faces!”
    ** Obama on ACORN Mobs: “I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!”
    ** Obama to His Mercenary Army: “Hit Back Twice As Hard”
    ** Obama on the private sector: “We talk to these folks… so I know whose ass to kick.“
    ** Obama to voters: Republican victory would mean “hand to hand combat”
    ** Obama to lib supporters: “It’s time to Fight for it.”
    ** Obama to Latino supporters: “Punish your enemies.”
    ** Obama to democrats: “I’m itching for a fight.”
    -



  35. 35

    Perez …all you want to do here is to incitr more hatred….. would you be held accountable for all the people you bullied in the past who commits suicude or if some deranged person agreed with you and killed him or her? I thought you changed but you're just a big BULLY and a HYPOCRITE.

  36. Shaun says – reply to this


    36

    well perez you jerk off why dont you put up the maps that dems use with targets on them to point out republicans they want to take out. your a terrible shit head.



  37. 37

    I think OBAMA said his enemies would get pay back, yes Obama had her snuffed.



  38. 38

    It's posts like this that have helped contribute to a generation of people that feel like they can blame anyone but themselves for their actions.
    HE chose to pull the trigger on all those people. HE is the one that should be held accountable. When will people start taking some responsibility for themselves? Moreover, when will the media stop with this shitty "journalism"?



  39. 39

    "This should be a lesson to you all"

    Please, you are hardly in any position to lecture anyone. LOL The dripping arrogance is stunning. Who the hell do you think you are? Whoopi Goldberg, oh yes, the elder states person Whoop Goldberg…LMAO. You really stepped in it this time you idiot.



  40. 40

    while I think SP is a moron, I don't think this tragedy is her fault. I think its the whole political atmosphere that is the problem. This 'us' vs 'them' talk and actions has to stop. Seriously politicians act like such children, it seems they won't agree on things simply bc they are from different parties. It is that kind of talk and atmosphere that has lead to this, the atmosphere that 'we' are against 'them' and we need to beat them. Also that rhetoric that is sometimes used like, "we will take them out" has no place in government.



  41. 41

    Re: bbtaddpole – Well Said!!



  42. 42

    You disgust me Perez. I read your blog for entertainment when I need a distraction from life, but you have now crossed a line. I saw this same line in a NY times article just hours after the shooting. What the liberal media and all of you people who are so blind with hatred do not see is that what happened Saturday was a tragedy. Just like many of the other media outlets, you have chosen to run something completely outrageous and taken advantage of this situation to point the finger at your political opposition. You also fail to mention that the democrats also put out a similar map during the election with bullseyes as targets where republican seats were up for grabs. Maybe you should read a book or two and stick to celebrity gossip.



  43. 43

    I'm completly appalled! C;mon Perez, stick with gossip on celebs and not politics. Palin is just another person that people want to try and blame. We already know who is to blame, the sick SOB the pulled the trigger. Let the famalies grieve and the dead RIP instead of trudging up thigns that don't belong….



  44. 44

    I wonder if your advertisers approve of your hate site? Maybe I'll ask them.



  45. 45

    You people should be ashamed of yourselves! The responsible person is no one other then the kid who shot her. He is disturbed, obviously! Its sad that people are pointing the finger at other people here! Very sad what this world is coming to!



  46. 46

    but you do post deplorable and disgusting articles too, like this. You are not the one who should call for judgment because you are not the person with the right credibility for it. face it, perez, you're just a gossip blogger, drop this political pretense you're playing and stick with your "gay rights".



  47. 47

    Re: WatcherOne – They have to find a way to distract the attention away from them or the country will see what a Crappy job they're going!



  48. 48

    Enough already. A crazed killer is at fault, not Palin, Obama, Rush or anyone else. Rushing to put blame on someone is beyond stupid. Joy, Whoopie and all others need to keep their opinion to themselves when thry know that they are wrong. They act like little 4 year olds who are learning to blame someone else instead of standing up and doing the right thing. Could be exactly why most of the world doesn't listen to Hollywierd. And as for you Mr. Perez, what happened to you not bullying and always telling the truth? Shame on you for trying to use this tragedy caused by one man as another reason to say trash about Palin. I'm not a Palin fan but enough is enough.



  49. 49

    You are incorrect in your post - those aren't targets, they are regular map markings. Sarah Palin has nothing to do with this.



  50. 50

    Re: MrsChitownTex – Great comment.



  51. 51

    this is sick. how would you even dare say she is responsible? sure, people don't like her, but to say she's the reason for the shooting? this is sickening perez. I come here for gossip, not for you to fucking accuse a politician for being responsible. and to think you could even believe this for a second. this whole map is for the damn congress race. take them out, take them out of office. there is no fucking connection here and why the hell you would post this on your site. how about you just make a political site? then we dont have to see this shit on your site for celebrity gossip.



  52. 52

    Re: Roseygirl – Wake up moron, this map was created by the Democrats during their planning to take over states during Bush's time. Nice try to pass off blame to everyone but yourselves.



  53. 53

    WOW!!! is this what politics have become?! DISGUSTING!



  54. 54

    wasn't perez supposedly changing entire image, so as to NOT appear as a bully? throwing someone (even if it IS the obnoxious sarah palin) under the bus with this "theory" on such an incredibly public forum, is deplorable.
    I don't care who else is publicly discussing this theory, spreading it, is even further tarnishing the reputation of palin, which oh guess what, IS BULLYING.



  55. 55

    FOR THIS BRUTALITY THERE A LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL. THESE NUT JOBS OF REPUBLICANS AND THEIR GOONS JUST SECURED

    OBAMA/BIDEN 2012. THE FURTURE WILL BELONG TO OBAMA.

    SARAH PALIAN IS A HICK WHO KILLS ANIMALS AND MAKES THEM SUFFER AND WALKS ALL OVER DEAD HELPLESS ANIMALS AND SAYS "HAHHAHAHAH BANG BANG YOUR DEAD!" AND SHE IS SENDING HER GOONS TO DO THE DIRTY WORK SUBLIMANILY.

    THANK GOD OBAMA WON AND WILL WIN AGAIN FOR 2012.

    LET GOODNESS REIGN IN AMERICA VOTE OBAMA/BIDEN 2012.



  56. 56

    I don't like Sarah palin I think she is idiot and fame whore the map was stupid idea and because of who she is should have not post something like that because people are going to take out of content and run with it. America is full of crazies people who need one thing to set them off and use that to go get a gun and kill innocent people instead of focus on Sarah Palin we need to focus on the innocent victim and their family who are affect by this and who will still be affect by this for years. Nine year girl is dead she never got to be teenager she never get married and she never have kids because of one crazy person so instead of spreading more hate Perez you should use your website to help the victims of the tragedy not use your site to bash Sarah Palin because she does not agree with your views I don't like Sarah Palin either but for people to blame her is not right.



  57. 57

    Funny you never hear about wtf killed all the fish and birds here and around and the globe now or John Wheeler who ended up in a dumpster for what he knew about it. Keep your eye on HAARP.



  58. 58

    You are an idiot, Perez. and NO, I'm not a Palin fan; rather, I'm a fan of common sense. I guess if I were to use YOUR twisted thought path, YOU could be held accountable for violence against gay people. This kind of thinking is so wrong - "do whatever you want, someone else will eventually be found that we can blame for your bad decisions." Puh-lease. Grow up. Think for yourself. Make your point, but choose your words with common courtesy in mind. When the values of courtesy, of kindness, of compassion went out the window, so did our country.



  59. 59

    Ridiculous! Palin may not be the brightest crayon in the box, but she didn't gun down these people. To associate her with it is absurd. The person who is responsible is the idiot who pulled the trigger.



  60. 60

    MARIO YOU ARE A HORRIBLE HORRIBLE PERSON. YOU ARE DISGUSTING AND VILE. HAVE YOU NO SHAME?



  61. 61

    Try to absorb the facts -Loughner was fixated on Giffords since 2007 – BEFORE Sarah Palin or the TEA party were national players.
    Starting to get a clue, Lefty?



  62. 62

    This health care bill is going to kill all of us.

    Don't feel sorry for the woman who got shot.

    Your choices determine your life…..she made the wrong choice in her speeches about the health care bill and pissed off people.

    Think before you speak.



  63. 63

    Re: rosebud99 – We all voted against prop 8 in California and look what happened…..the gays keep trying to over turn it.

    there is no longer any democracy anymore..because if someone doesn't like the outcome of a vote…they change it.



  64. 64

    Sarah Palin is a terrible person. While she may have not pulled the trigger she was still a part of it. Sarah Palin is the one who deserves to die along with her ugly used to be knocked up teenager. Instead innocent wonderful people including gabrielle gifford and a beautiful 9 year old had to suffer and die in a very tragic way thanks to this stupid bitch. and her stupid pathetic ways. she should feel ashamed of herself. you better watch your back sarah palin. i hear karma is a bitch. don't worry when you die there is a very special place for you and bristol and the rest of your pathetic family. and no it's NOT called heaven, It's called HELL.



  65. 65

    you are an idiot as usual Perez.. where is your criticism of democratic national committee for using a target map for republicans or daily kos for targeting Giffords for primary elections.. yea thought so



  66. 66

    THE GUY WAS A LEFTIST, NOT A TEA-PARTY or RIGHTIST. He has Marx listed as one of his favorite authors– no tea party member is going to do that– and his friends said he was on the Left.

    Now watch all of the mainstream media– since their chance to make political hay out of a horrible crime has been ripped out from under them– move quietly and without apology to their viewers to calling the guy a "nut".

    Honestly Whoopi Goldberg is one of the few people who could go toe to toe with Sarah Palin in the stupidity department.



  67. 67

    She didn't put the gun in the guys hand and say to shoot ..no.. but she is a fucking idiot! Not only putting up areas where these people are having their speeches but the way her and others talk , like " we've given you the location now you solve the problem".. i read some of that that she said and other politicians of the same fraction.. like wow.. you think you might want to fucking rephrase that? considering there are a lot of psycho fuckers in this world that might take it literally? and plus most of the time it comes to political challenges people get violent because they can't handle a debate well -_- either way she is stupid for the way she talks and stupid for putting that shit up.. this isn't a war.. we are all American republican or democrat.. instead of going against each other how about coming up with some solutions..and if you can't at least try.. because anyone or "party" that has to resort to violence to win or make a point doesn't deserve to speak at all and is a COWARD.. what pointless deaths because of ignorant people.. what a shame..



  68. 68

    Re: white_is_ugly – OMG, your post is one of the most vile I've ever read. Does "what comes around goes around" or "what you send out you get back three times over" mean anything at all to you?



  69. 69

    Re: white_is_ugly – Screen shot forwarded to law enforcement.

    "Sarah Palin is the one who deserves to die along with her ugly used to be knocked up teenager". "You better watch your back sarah palin. i hear karma is a bitch. don't worry when you die there is a very special place for you and bristol and the rest of your pathetic family".



  70. 70

    She's not directly responsible, but by putting that on her website she gave ammunition. It's weird…rich Republicans are always inadvertently getting their poor redneck followers to do their dirty work.



  71. 71

    i love u perez…but this post was the worst ever! blame the sicko that pulled the trigger not some dumb map from the past political season. that guy had issues with the congress woman since 2007….way before sarah palin came on the scene! shame on you perez!



  72. 72

    This coming from a lady who publicly berated Bush and sits on a panel with Joy Behar who has been employing hate speech since the show started. Perez you are pitiful for even posting this. The prisons have more Democrats then Republicans..what should we draw from that…all Democrats are criminals ?



  73. 73

    Of course Palin didnt cause the, but she contributed to the atmophere, of hate and a nut heard her and acted. she has some blood on her hands, as well as Glenn Beck and Fow news.



  74. 74

    Perez, you went to NYU, right? You consider yourself to be an educated individual? Did they teach you anything about LIBEL at that prestigious university?? I bet you had a shit eating grin on your face while writing this. For you to be so painstakingly desperate to paint Sarah Palin in a bad light tthat you would say she could be responsible for the shootings and the spilled blood done of someone else's hands that has NO CONNECTION TO HER shows how much of a joke you are. Please don't think you will ever be taken seriously after this stupid little post. You should be banned from the internet.



  75. 75

    NO ONE IS BLAMING PALIN!! PEOPLE ARE JUST PEOPLE OUT HOW SHE INCITES VIOLENCE!!

    Re: YRUFATT – that's a terrible thing to say…



  77. 77

    i agree that this site needs to go back to talking about just celebrities.. this is obviously not the right place for all this.. but those of you saying it's Perez creating this and it's his opinion.. you're wrong.. it's on several blog and news sites..

    the only person responsible is that nut job loughin. he's the one that pulled the trigger, HE's the one responsible. NO ONE ELSE.



  79. 79

    Really??? You're going to blame Sarah Palin? Come on now. Jared Loughner was a disturbed young man. The only one responsible for his actions is himself. Stop trying to put the blame on a leader in a political party that you despise! It's pretty outrageous Perez's hypocrisy. No H8te, right? Oh, wait that doesn't translate for him towards others? Yeah, that's what I thought!

    Rhetoric on both sides was vitriolic during the campaigns. The Metaphor, battleground states, was commonly used by the lame stream media. Gov. now senator Manchin a Democrat had a commercial highlighting how he was going to kill the Cap and Trade bill with his rifle. Our Fearless leader, the Omnipotent Obama, used rhetoric such as bring a gun to a knife fight, He encouraged the people to get angry he also referred to the opposition as enemies.I watched several of his speeches and I distinctly remembering telling my husband that Obama's mantra should be HATE AND CHANGE not Hope and change. I also find it very curious that Jane Fonda and the View dim wits are offended when someone blames Muslims for 911 but they are primed to blame all Republicans and the TeaParty people for this murderous rampage committed by a delusional very sick individual.



  81. 81

    Are you joking me. Political rhetoric did not cause this man to pull the trigger, he did it himself. Media outlets are ridiculous. He is insane. Of course leave it up to the Media to point fingers.

    Re: pghamy – there are so many things wrong with your comment! first no one is blaming Palin people are just pointing out how she incites violence with using gun language and putting that map up there!! no one is vilifying her SHE DOES IT TO HERSELF!! SHE PUT UP THAT MAP SHE DECIDED TO USE GUN LANGUAGE DURING CAMPAIGNS!!! you said that the shooter was libreal but he wasnt he was really neither a libreal or right winger but he followed a man's ideology that was favored by the far right! but there's no evidence that he was either

    [re=5529725]Re: YouR8Looser[/I agree with you. The Lame stream media,Jane Fonda, and the View ladies need to focus on the facts of the shooting and not speculate and create a storyline that suits their agenda. The media should keep the focus on the heros and the innocent people who lost their lives on that tragic Saturday verses politicizing this senseless crime, especially since all of the facts are not known.



  84. 84

    I'm guessing most who want to blame the "hate speech" or the use of targets or bullseye's on congressional districts would be appalled if music lyrics or violence in movies or video games are blamed for violence by some. Simple fact here is a deranged fellow acted in a deranged way. Period. He didn't even vote in the last election. Liberals love to overreact to situations like this. Evil exists and it shows itself in times like this.

    can elisabitch please be fired again. seriously she makes me turn off the channel.



  86. 86

    First, Sarah Palin is an idiot. Second, she is on the fringe. Also on the fringe is the left wing blog Daily Kos, which ran a similar map.

    Get you facts, Perez.



  87. 87

    PLEEEEEEEEASE don't be a moron. This guy was coo coo for cocoa puffs! He could have taken out his coo coo at work, on a subway, his girlfriend, a school. Don't try to blame republicans for this. No way do we want violence against anyone! Use your words like they teach you in preschool!



  88. 88

    sarah palin is not responsible for this ok the congress should work to create restringtions against people to posess guns and protect other people's lives



  89. 89

    The disturbed shooter is responsible, no one else. Obama said once that Democrats would "bring a gun to a knife fight," so is he responsible for any shootings?? No.



  90. 90

    You are ignorant and stupid if you think anyone except the INSANE shooter is responsible for this tragedy!! What is the point to you even posting this except to stir up more hate and place blame on others. I am disgusted that you would insinuate that Sarah Palin is responsible for the death of that poor little girl. You are trying to stir up drama and place blame to advance your own political agenda. Disgusting.



  91. 91

    It is absolutely ridiculous to place blame on Sarah Palin or anyone else. The only person responsible for the tragedy in Arizona was the man with the gun shooting people at point blank range. I don't care what political party a person belongs to. This is not a bipartisan issue. This incident occurred because one person decided to wreak havoc, not an entire political party.



  92. 92

    A whack job was responsible for this. How could you miss that? It's been all over the news. Seriously, the one person responsible for this is the messed up ass who pulled the trigger. Let's stop trying to blame anyone else.



  93. 93

    AFTER SHE ISSUED A STATMENT REGARDING TO THE SHOOTING…..SHE HAD A MEETING WITH HER STAFF…. AGENDA:WHO'S THE NEXT TARGET. 16 MORE TO GO…..WOOOOOOHO!!!!! TEA PARTY RULE!!!!!



  94. 94

    SARAH PALIN FOR PRESIDENT……..AND YOUR'E THE NEXT TARGET!!!!!

  95. @v@ says – reply to this


    95

    She didn't do it. He did.
    That said, it's called inflammatory rhetoric because it does just that; inflames.
    Her contribution or lack of it is something that can best be measured by Sarah Palin herself when she's alone.



  96. 96

    POLITICS IS SO BORING WITHOUT SARAH PALIN……..



  97. 97

    ALSO THAT GOES TO AMERICAN CRY BABY"GLEN BEEEEEEEEEECK!!!!



  98. 98

    Once again you show you ignorance. You are such a hypocrite. You should stay far away from politics.



  99. 99

    Inciting violence directly or indirectly IS violence!



  100. 100

    disgusting that this tragedy is being used to score political points. Truly revolting
