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.
