Sarah Palin Responds To Arizona Shooting And…

| Filed under: PolitikSad SadSarah Palin

Sometimes, people rise above after they've done wrong to admit their fault. This is not one of those moments.

Sarah Palin released a video this morning, responding to the backlash she's been receiving in regards to the Arizona shooting last Saturday. In case you don't know, last year, Sarah released a deplorable graphic on her Facebook page. It was a map of the USA, covered in crosshairs, targeting areas and politicians that supported the new health care reform. One of those names was Gabrielle Giffords, the congresswoman who was shot in the head over the weekend.

No one has proved as of yet that Jared Loughner's attack on the Congresswoman had anything to do with Sarah Palin or the Tea Party movement, but like many others, we called into question Sarah's ease to use violently suggestive images as a means to garner support.

So, Sarah decided to defend herself against the all dreadful liberal media. Not apologize, mind you, for using violent imagery to convey her own agenda - just defend herself from being to blame for the tragedy.

Watch the video (above) to hear her argue her own side. One part we found particularly interesting was this:

”If you don’t like a person’s vision for the country, you’re free to debate that vision. If you don’t like their ideas, you’re free to propose better ideas. But especially within hours of a tragedy unfolding, journalists and pundits should not manufacture a blood libel that serves only to incite the very hatred and violence that they purport to condemn. That is reprehensible.”

Hmm. Hypocritical much, Sarah?

Thoughts?

    She is reprehensible. Finally, people are seeing her for who she really is. Her followers are all racist and filled with hate. She has dug her own hole, now all she has to do is get in it and cover herself up.



  2. 2

    Thems some big words thar gov'na. I hope ya didn't break ya break dontcha know.



  3. 3

    Please don't run for President!



  4. 4

    Am I the only one who doesn't see ANY connection between a man going on a shooting spree and Sarah Palin? I'm not a fan of hers by any means..but seriously? A graphic she approved last year has a direct effect on a deranged gunman? This is just ridiculous, if you blame her you have to blame every other person running for office in the history of the USA who published a graphic..cuz you know it could lead to horrific violence.

    While what she did was wrong, the tragedy in AZ was clearly done by an insane madman - you cannot blame her for someone shooting a little girl - he was crazy, it had nothing to do with politics.



  6. 6

    Someone probably wrote this response for her. Come on America, don't buy into this unqualified woman's "us vs. them" rhetoric. That doesn't solve any problems. We should all support our elected president, regardless of partisanship. You can trust that Obama is privy to information that is burdensome and from which we are spared.



  7. 7

    She sounds like she's reading. =/ I wonder if she wrote that speech herself. OMG I wanna punch her in her face. She sounds so completely condscending.



  8. 8

    She came off a bit defensive, but I thought her points were spot on. It's evil and bad to insinuate that she had anything to do with this terrible tragedy.



  9. 9

    She would have been a lot smarter to just keep her mouth shut.



  10. 10

    I don't like Palin but it is INSANE to insist she or any one other than that madman had anything to do with this.

    Perez you should be ashamed. This is like saying Columbine happened because those kids listened to Marilyn Manson's music.

    You or anyone else insisting this tragedy happened because of Sarah Palin is disgusting.



  11. 11

    PEREZ…I love your sight I really do, but stick to gossip cause politics ain't your thing. Your lack of research before you rush to judgement astounds me. You have made it quite clear how you feel about Sarah Palin so it does not surprise me that you would place blame on her for this. Don't realize that what you are doing, is exactly what you are condemning. Now if some mental psycho who happens to read your website goes and shoots Sarah Palin are we to blame you for that murder? If you honestly believe that her putting up that map caused this guy to shoot those people, then maybe you should also point blame at the democrats who used a similiar type of map in the 2008 election season. Or maybe you should also petition the entertainment industry to take all violence out of TV, Movies, Video Games, Books, Songs, etc… Because who knows if that might lead someone to kill. Your arguments are ridiculous..>Sarah Palin had nothing more do to with Arizona then you or I.
    Some crazy guy, who had a problem with the Congresswomen since 2007…way before Sarah Palin or her crosshairs map came on the scene, went and killed people. Him and only him is to blame. The fact that people use a senseless crime to promote their political agenda or spew hatred for someone they clearly don't like is RIDICULOUS. GET A GODDAMN CLUE.



  12. 12

    this is just damage control to me.. i think she should just be quite.. and stop trying to "help" out her party..i have a hard time believing anything she says.. because the way she usually speaks seems violent..



  13. 13

    YOU are the hypocritical pot calling the kettle black, Sir. Should the world turn to you and say "Perez Hilton, you false-named fool, your pro-gay blatherings have created a negative tidal wave of violence against gay people. Any injury or harm, real or perceived, experienced by gay people now rests squarely upon your fame-whoring, slightly jiggly shoulders?" Nope, thought you might not like that. People like YOU are a direct link to the never-ending, escalating drama that eventually can end up in real violence.



  14. 14

    You're the hypocrite asshole! You are attacking her and saying that she is somehow responsible for the actions of a madman that she's never even met! You are a complete bigoted idiot! I look at your site less and less because of this kind of crap.



  15. 15

    Blood libel is a term used against the jews. Basically it was christians saying jews use the blood of christian children for jewish rituals. Nice Job, Palin



  16. 16

    perez, you're such a PIECE OF SHIT. with liberal fucking media, it's getting to the point you can't say jack shit without everything being SO politically correct. did sarah palin SAY to shoot someone in the head???? fuck NO! unless she said, "GO SHOOT and KILL her", you're argument has no weight. the guy was MENTALLY unstable! if you're going to point fingers at things that are SUGGESTED, then we need to tear apart every movie, all music, news reports, art that SUGGESTS SOMETHING. your way of thinking is what leads to censorship! btw, LETS NOT FORGET in 2008, during the election, around halloween, someone put up a sarah palin w/a neuce around her neck. did sarah do that with giffords? fuck no! an instance like that is BEYOND suggesting! people, get off all your politically correct soapboxes!



  17. 17

    You can be such a retard, Perez. The guy has been proven to be unassociated with the Tea Party or Palin in any way, shape or form. In fact, quite the opposite. Friends and acquaintances interviewed by Arizona newspapers have described him as "a Left wing pothead". He listed Marx as one of his favorite authors– something no Tea Partier in the world would do. He was, if anything, on the Left, not on the right.

    Who should be apologizing are those despicable barbarians who swooped in like vultures to make political hay out of a horrible tragedy. Not an hour had passed after the shooting– literally, not an hour– before the usual talking heads were on CNN and MSNBC denouncing the "violent right" and Palin and the Tea Party. They had no idea who this guy was and what his motivations, if any, might be. Now that it turns out the guy was not a Tea Partier and was a Leftist nutjob instead of a Rightist nutjob, you'd think they'd slither away quietly. But people like that, sadly, were never interested in facts to begin with. They were interested in political tactics: how do we get our opponents to shut up. Call them violent, racists, homophobes– anything to not have to deal with the issues.

    And you are one of them.



  18. 18

    MSG part 1: Look, Perez- I know you don't like Sarah Palin, and I agree she has said/done things that turn me the wrong way to (like running for vice president, haha). HOWEVER- to indicate her AT ALL in this terrible terrible tragedy is unjust and unfair. Whenever there is a tragedy that garners a lot of press, the media instantly go into "who dunnit" mode and start blaming the wrong people (i.e., Sarah Palin for her cross-hairs photo, but also musicians a la marilyn manson and columbine, and video games etc etc).



  19. 19

    She needs to learn to shut the fuck up.



  20. 20

    MSG part 2: While Sarah's use of cross-hairs wasn't an appropriate choice (especially if she only meant to 'point out' the opposition- and I might add, as someone in politics she needs to be EXTRA careful), she still cannot be blamed or held responsible in ANY way for this tragedy. Unless we find out Sarah HIRED jared to do this, she should be COMPLETELY left out of it. Her picture, video games, and angry music do NOT drive people to commit violent crimes. In situations where these things MAY have an influence are situations wherein the person committing the crime is ALREADY pre-disposed or currently experiencing mental illness of some kind.

    Perez, you are delusional. The loony guy NEVER watched news on TV or internet, according to his parents and those who knew him. Anyone who even remotely thinks they can blame Palin, whom liberals have an insane fear of, and rabidly want to take down, is unbelievably stupid. That being said, there is no limit to the video clips and news articles wherein liberals explicitly prefess violence and torture of Palin, literally hundreds of instances. Go to Michellemalkin.com just for starters. Perez, you are just pandering to your supporters and for the posts, such as mine, it will engender. You are making money, but you, as well as all other grossly hypocritical delusional rubes, should be ashamed of how gross and downright evil you are.



  22. 22

    MSG part 3: The fault isn't Sarah's, nor is it anyone else's. We live in a society where mental illness has a very negative stigma, and therefore isn't talked about enough. There are resources for people out there to get help. It's up to parents/teachers, and other loved ones, to recognize abnormal behaviours and seek to get the person help.

    So while I don't think Sarah's photo was appropriate at all, I DEFINITELY do not think it puts her in a position where she is even remotely responsible for what this guy decided to do. So in this particular situation, I do not blame her for defending herself, as opposed to apologizing. If she apologizes then she will be saying "yes maybe this was part of it" when it wasn't the case.



  23. 23

    Google Democrats Bulls-Eye map and see what you come up with. The deomcrats came up with a map in 2004 much like Palins… Hey we can blame them too. While we are at it lets blame Jodie Foster for Regan's shooting.

  24. open says – reply to this


    24

    You know PH, you are one of the most one sided, hypocritical people out there. Not that I agree that using targets or crosshairs over someone's picture is OK, but stop pretending that the dem libs don't do the same. they ALL need to change the way they do politcs! Have you forgotten the t shirts with bush's pic with a gun next to it? or the stickers to "abort sarah palin"? or the tv commercial by dem mitchell vs rep hayworth in which he used a MOVING crossharids over the face of his rep opponent???? now THAT was creepy!! There are MANY other such instances where the left has done the same as what SP, on the right, has done. STOP trying to put everything on her just because you hate her.

    You do this all the time. When you do not like someone, you will do everything to tear them down. You are still the bully you have always been. You obviously have issues from being bullied yourself… instead of taking your own experiences and learning from them, you have turned into the bully. It will never stop with you unless you seek help.

    ALL political rhetoric needs to change.. it's just like calling out "fire" in a building full of people. It's not a responsible use of free speech.. from both parties! stop drawing lines because it doesn't help the matter at all.

    You can't think it's ok for one side and NOT the other.



  25. 25

    FINAL PART: Anyway, as much of many of us (including myself) are not Sarah Palin fans, we can't just dog on her every chance we get. This young man who committed these crimes is a very disturbed individual who did a very bad thing. Can you imagine being sarah and having people BLAMING you for what someone else did? It would be devastating.



  26. 26

    just shut your pie hole on this perez. she has no freaking need to apologize. do you not read your comments on shit like this from earlier this week?? i think obamaman needs to apologize for saying he's "at war" with the conservative movement each time someone criticizes obamacare. you have no grounds to talk on this subject. being a celeb blogger does not give you some magic powers and knowledge. you have your right to say what you want. but it only makes you look lame and not so bright.

  27. uyeah says – reply to this


    27

    She has nothing to apologize for. You, Perez, have much. i hope karma pays you a visit real soon. You're lower than whale shit, and spare us your commentary, you are no statesman, just a buffoon.



  28. 28

    By the way– one wonders if, considering your own guilt in this tragic play, you'll heed your own demands and admit your fault.

    You jumped the gun on this, blamed Palin (who I'm no fan of) as being at fault for this when clearly the guy was not inspired by her at all…so admit your fault, apologize, and move on…



  29. 29

    Sarah Palin confuses debate with saying things that encourage violence like , "don't retreat, reload!" Her many unbalanced followers or even people looking for an excuse to do something deadly, see politicians encouraging violence and make that short, mad leap to action. Palin in completely incapable of using facts and intelligence in her rhetoric so she resorts to silly, glib phrases, lies and violent analogies. Shame on those of you who support her. Get your head out of your asses.



  30. 30

    Re: A_Stew – AMEN! There doesn't need to be an actual, real-and-for-true connection for small or frightened minds to leap to conclusions, then swear on a stack of Bibles that those new-found conclusions are solid proven fact. Those self-same lemmings propegate the suppositions and innuendoes until they've stirred up another heapin' helpin' of rhetoric stew. Yum Yum



  31. 31

    this is ridiculous. we all know sarah palin is not well recieved in the public eye…but i CANNOT believe that people are blaming the graphic that she presented last year was even partially to blame for the horrific shooting in Arizona. and the funny thing about all of this nonsense is that the gunman was a registered independent!! the gunman is a crazy person and committed a tragic crime. so put the blame where it should be and not on a politician you dont agree with. pathetic.



  32. 32

    Re: Gushiness – Your a fucking retard. I don't like the lady, but it has been proven that there is no more racism in her party than any other, it's just people like you that, when not having an inteligent argument, you scream racism to divert the focus.



  33. 33

    You are so ignorant it is disgusting. In 2004 9 liberal members of congress did the same thing putting targets on a map of the conservatives they wanted taken down. It is inappropriate but she is not the first to do this. If one of the republicans had been shot by some crazed psychopath would it be the liberals fault? You don't know your history or politics. Your "reporting" and hatred only add fuel to the fire. Maybe you should spend some of your money going to college and getting educated.



  34. 34

    She's right



  35. 35

    I couldn't care less about this women but she had NOTHING to do with the shooting. People need to stop looking for scape goats in this or any situation. The only one to blame is the pathetic excuse of a human being who actually pulled the trigger!

    Re: Youdontknowjack21578 – fucking THANK YOU! :) ))



  37. 37

    The democrats have a map of the United States with TARGETS on each state. Why isn't that being reported??????



  38. 38

    sarah palin is full of more shit than a babies diaper.



  39. 39

    Wow, it's perfectly fine to ultra queeny homo Glambert to kiss a dude on tv and madonna to whore up everthing she touches, but it's unacceptable to put "sights" are target areas, even though there is an obvious metaphoric comparison. This is labeled "violent imagery" by idiots like you. And you wonder why there are so many confused crazy fucks out there. Just another liberal excuse. When a liberal does something horrid, it is always someone else fault, most of the time it's a "White Man's" fault, but this time it's all conservatives. Why not, it's better to blame others than take accountability for your own actions, ahhh, the american way.



  40. 40

    Why would she apologize?!?!



  41. 41

    I think she's pointing out the hypocrisy of many liberals. Condemning her for fueling people with hatred by fueling hatred for her and the right? I mean really, read some of your comments people.

    With that said, a token apology wouldn't have hurt, because that poster was rather tasteless. In no way should she have apologized for or accepted any responsibility for Loughner's actions though.



  42. 42

    Where was the media a year ago when this "deplorable graphic" was first released?The media is trying to pin something on a woman who has no connection to the indcident whatsoever. It's so frustrating how the media has been BULLYING this woman ever since she was running for VP. Why is she so threatening to liberals? I just don't get it.



  43. 43

    Re: AlexPoland – There are several other definitions for this phrase as well - perhaps you could also list those, rather than simply inflame an already heated issue?



  44. 44

    Hey fatard, since you only watch liberal news channels you probably don't know this but the left also used graphics with targets in them. Both parties have done this in the past. Get your facts straight.



  45. 45

    I doubt she had anything to do with the shootings (meaning, I have never seen anything claiming that the shooter had ever even seen this graph, let alone possibly decided to act in any way based on it). I still think she's retarded.

    Really though, the thing that people are most angry about regarding her use of the word "Blood libel" in relation to how people are treating her. For people who don't know, it refers to how Christians, for centuries, would claim that Jews drank the blood of Christian children during their religious rites. Palin obviously had no clue what the word she was using even meant. And worse, some of the people who suffered from the attack (I believe one being the Arizona rep) was Jewish.

    I don't blame Palin for the attacks. I blame her for QUITE a bit otherwise though. And she needs to disappear from the public eye, because it is never pleasant.

    She should have released a video that said: "In hindsight, that graph was in poor taste, and my heart goes out to all the victims and their families, as well as anyone else suffering from this, but I do not believe that I am in any way responsible for this attack. We need to move forward from this event and learn from it, myself as well."

    But, instead, she releases this piece of aggressive crap that just digs herself an even bigger hole.

    46

    Not an ounce of reflection that I can see. She learned NOTHING.



  47. 47

    Yes the guy whose favorite book was the Communist Manifesto was CLEARLY a dyed in wool Republican… oh wait Republicans HATE all communist ideals. This p.o.s. was an INSANE and disturbed killer who had been after Gifford since 2007 - long before Palin.

    PALIN DID NOTHING TO INCITE THIS MAN AND TO CLAIM SHE DID IS IRRESPONSIBLE ESPECIALLY SINCE WE BARELY KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THIS CASE.

    You don't have to like her, I don't, but I am clear minded enough to see this guy needed no motivation to kill



  48. 48

    Sarah Palin is an asshole but I don't think she's linked to this tragedy. What she does need to do (this goes for ALL politicians of her ilk on BOTH sides) is stop whipping her slack-jawed "fans" into such a frenzy with all the negative innuendos that come flying out of her ignorant mouth.

    I still recall her said WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange should be hunted down in the way armed forces are targeting the Taliban and Al-Qaeda. Target happy.



  50. 50

    Stop it, just stop it Perez!! I am so sick and tired of the media trying to create such buzz about the political divide in the country, saying that it was the root cause of the shootings in Arizona. The shooting was NOT driven by political reasons - the killer was clearly an insane person full of evil! That's like blaming music or other forms of entertainment. This country always to blame everyone but themselves for the actions they take. Sarah Palin, nor ANY OTHER political person, party or movement had any part in this and should not be held accountable. Gun owners should not be held accountable. His teachers, his little league coaches, his parents, etc. (you get the point) should not be held accountable. PERIOD. The killer was just that - a killer. An evil, thoughtless killer. Stop buying into this whole media frenzy. You are only making it worse! PEREZ, YOU HAVE NO COMMON SENSE.

    Apologies, regardless of who gives them is not going to fix anything or anyone. She has nothing to apologize for in regards to this recent tragedy anyway.



  53. 53

    Really? Now, I'm sure if Mr. Obama had approved some picture of similar content, not necessarily about the same topic, but with the oh-so-deplorable crosshairs on it, you people would not be saying a thing. But because we're dealing with a Republican politician who rubs you all the wrong way, she has now become the Antichrist. It's absolutely terrible for her to defend herself. How dare she! I would like to sit there and be blamed for something that I had nothing to do with too. I mean, I lost my backbone a long time ago, so it wouldn't matter to me.



  54. 54

    If Republicans are the party of “No” then the Democrats are the party of hypocrisy.
    Shorty after the tragic shooting in Arizona several Democrats, and most “left wing” blogs jumped on Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and the Tea Party, to name a few, as the torch that lit the fuse on the deranged shooter and then a short time later only to discover his true political leanings were radically left. Yet none retracted their vile assumptions.
    Democrats, and their representatives, are quick to point the blame on who they “perceive” was influencing Jared Lee Loughner. Now we know he was a mentally deranged person on his own mission.
    Not one, blogs or especially the national news networks have brought up the divisive rhetoric our President has used to divide our country in true Saul Alinsky “Rules for Radicals” form…
    * President Obama: “They Bring a Knife…We Bring a Gun”
    * President Obama to His Followers: “Get in Their Faces!”
    * President Obama on ACORN Mobs: “I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!”
    * President Obama to His Mercenary Army- SEIU: “Hit Back Twice As Hard”
    * President Obama on the private sector: “We talk to these folks… so I know whose ass to kick.“

    Just to name a few.



  55. 55

    The person who wrote this seriously needs to stick to entertainment and other important liberal social/celebrity events. Leave the thinking to real people with real opinions…

    If there is no proof of Loughner having nothing to do with Sarah Palin or the Tea Party then it should end there. Especially when the evidence coming out shows that Loughner is a LEFTIST more than anything.



  56. 56

    WHY R WE STILL LISTENING TO THIS UNSENSITIVE GAYHATER CRUEL RACIST BITCH?



  57. 57

    You can not blame this tragedy on anyone besides the scum bag that pulled the trigger. That is like blaming movies or music. It's called personal responsibility. All those times Perez wrote horrible things about people if someone went and did something about it, would you blame him? And that is not even close to a comparison. You can not blame others for a psycho's wrong doing.



  58. 58

    No, A_Stew, you are no the only one who sees no connectin between this man who went on a shooting spree and Sarh Palin. Also, I do no blame President Obama because he said "If they bring a knife to the fight, we will bring a gun." I also do not blame J.D. Salinger for John Lennon's death, because John David Chapman recited some quotes in "Cacher in th Rye" as the reason he killed John Lennon.
    Jaren Lougner has a mental illness and whatever the reason it was that he targeted the congresswoman, I am sure it is not really going to make sense to any of us.



  59. 59

    Re: @v@ – What is she supposed to "learn" here? Are you gifted with the ability to control a deranged lunatics actions?



  60. 60

    the dimocrats and leftish media are those who've used actual violent rhetoric. obama himself even "they bring a knife, we bring a gun, etc…..". The former Democratic congressman from FLorida supporting violence by firing squad against another politican from the right. My god, Palin didn't even inject herself into this, the MEDIA did. She is only staving off their insane attacks. Either cover this in a balanced fashion, or don't touch it! The kid was a wackadoo, shit happens.



  61. 61

    So ridiculous thing to post. Ms. Palin did nothing wrong. Very hypocritical for Democrats to be blaming Republicans for these tragic events because of an ad SarahPAC posted last year…Let's remember the DNC posted a similar ad back in 2004…so you are very ridiculous. this video is great. And I question your intelligence for making any negative comments about it.



  62. 62

    Hypocrite? You're one to talk you are the king of hypocrites. You've set off your fair share of firestorms with your bigoted women bashing history. You enjoy going after females who don't meet your far left policial agenda. The only reprehensible person around these parts is you and your warped perception of reality. Your 15 minutes are soon to be over and you will be pushed over into the not hot catagory by years end. Keep up the hate you bigoted useless fucktard. Keep promoting an agenda filled with intolerence and women hating and no Lady Caca is not a true women by any means just some overhyped fugly hag.



  63. 63

    Answer me this: how come when the Ft Hood shootings took place last year, and a crazy Muslim dr with a gun yelled "Allahu Akbar" before going on a shooting spree, the liberal media warned everyone that we 'mustn't rush to judgement." Now we have a crazy guy who'd been obsessed with this congresswoman since at least 2007, and the lib media blames the whole thing on Palin, the Tea Party and conservative talk radio. Hypocrites!!!!



  64. 64

    I don't like Sarah myself but I don't get why she's getting the blame for the horrific tragedy. I do know one thing though, Mario, you definitely hate Sarah Palin. We get it!



  65. 65

    Why is it so hard for people to understand that this was politically motivated. Gabby Giffords was his TARGET!!! Sarah Palin and her supporters need to UNDERSTAND that hate speech has consequences especially when the individuals have crosshairs on their heads in a map. You all need to stop trying to support Palin and realize that this was a deranged man and it is possible as stated by many psychologists after the attack happend that a deranged person will take graphics and hate speech to another level that a sane person would not. Gabby herself expressed concerns on more than one occasion!!!! Shame on Sarah Palin is trying to turn this around on her trying to make her look like a victim. What about the 20 people shot, 6 dead and one fighting for her life!!!!!!!!! Shame on you Sarah Palin and your supporters for not seeing the connection!



  66. 66

    Even though what she did on her webpage is seriously irresponsible, she's not the one responsible for the shooting. A disturbed man did.

    That said, she sounds really condiscending towards the viewer. murr.



  67. 67

    I love how whenever ther is a crazy whack job who shoots up the place, the media ALWAYS says its a republican. Hilarious! And no way would Liberal Demorcrats do this, they are peace loving and would never do this thing. I love it that when the Fort Hood incident happened, the media said lets not jump to any conclusions that this was a jihadst act of terror. Even though, It was a muslim, he screamed Allah Akbar before he started shooting, his emails were all to a terrosts group..etc. But no, lets not jump to any conclusions even though the proof was all there. But how there is NO proof of sara palin in regard to this guy, but the media blames her…How pathetic…hilarious. Wake up peeps. The media controls this country.



  68. 68

    Be careful, Prez, about trying to connect the dots with this one. Her stupid map with crosshairs was immature and unprofessional, but she isn't to blame for this. Any reasonable person would know that she is not actually advocating shooting people. Besides, it appears this guy was probably not even influenced by her. Nevertheless, public figures like her really shouldn't be having shit like gun targets, etc. It's kind of hard to put into words, but it is just stupid and unprofessional and immature.

    sarah palin is garbage, and a hypocrite. she is a talking head that people listen too, unfortunately. sure, the "normal" people wont take into consideration of her rhetoric to "lock and reload" againt the liberals. but a mentally ill person would. as a political figure she should not be advocating violence. EVER. in a world where assasinations are remembered in our history she goes around and spews hate. and instead of uniting a great country she tries to divide us with her ignorance. go away palins, all of you. stay in alaska and hunt your moose after you get your nails done, and stop talking. it's embarassing to the usa that you exist.

    she rocks! she is exactly right. you can't predict CRAZY. there will always be crazy one/s. this dude doens't even knwo who she is. it had nothing to do with her. thank goodness there's a BRAIN to this madness that can keep everyone on even keil to know that it doesn't take a congress person to have a werido kill - it can be anyone at anytime. Perez? i PRAY it would never be you, but there can be the same kinda crazies out there about your world. it's not about her. it's about him and how werid he was.



  71. 71

    I'm not a Sarah Palin fan…not in the least, i would NEVER in my life vote for her…and with that being said…we cannot blame her for this crazy young man's actions, its' not her fault. Do we even have ANY PROOF that he even visited her website(s)? The blame lays solely on the individual.

    America … this woman is DANGEROUS

    Re: Caylen C – I agree 100% (for what that's worth!) with your posts, parts 1 - final! I don't think many will, though - it's an unfortunate sign of the "it's all about me" attitude that pervades our country now . . . someone else devastated by my comments or actions? Too bad for their luck, I got what I wanted. Scares the hell outta me, but I think this is just the beginning of the ugliness.



  74. 74

    Palin is a reprehensible, evil, selfish bitch. The best thing for her was to just stay in Wasilla, Alaska and never tweeted another word. This defensive and self-serving statement only made the situation worse for her.
    Really took the low road here.
    "Blood libel" is a particularly despicable choice of words since Gabrielle Giffords is Jewish. Appallingly ignorant even for her.
    Re: Gushiness – Agreed.



  75. 75

    Re: Slainie – Completely agree….it's sad how people make connections like this just to back their dislike for someone. Apparently we all need to have the ability to predict the future from now on…or we're all screwed!



  76. 76

    If you really cared about the effects of political rhetoric, you would have gone after any number of those left-wingers who have directly incited violence – starting with the man with the world’s biggest audience: President Obama. After all, he did say, "If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun."

    Hypocritical much!!



  77. 77

    Do you not recall the "Abort Palin" campaign? Or the beheaded Bush? Or the signs about shooting Bush? or the Image of someone aiming a gun at Palin's head in Getty's images? or calling Palin a Natural Born Killer? or most recently a liberal radio host saying he hoped to see that Rush Limbaugh was dead? or liberal Malloy saying I hope Glenn Beck kills himself? Or the bullseye targets used by the democrats in the 2004 election? How can you draw a parallel here without blaming the democrats / liberals for any murders after these images and threats?Sarah Palin used cross hairs over 2 years ago and yet she is blamed for this? Why this murder? Wouldn't it be more likely that it would occur WHILE it was being published? This is a case of situation ethics. Liberals seems to say what they want and threaten anyone with horrible, graphic images (remember the one of McCain with animal teeth and blood and the words "war monger"). Glass houses anyone?



  78. 78

    Sarah Palin is a massive joke and has ZERO class. She thinks she can lead this country ? Her remarks in this video are concrete proof that she is totally incapable. She can't even lead a family. The mama grizzly has no compassion and has never been wrong in her life. When will she be out of our lives ? Soon I suspect, as people are scratching the surface of this moron and realizing she is a fool . She added fuel to the fire and the guy in Arizona is the beginning not the end. The people that listen to Palin and her rhetoric are more inclined to act out like this psycho. The uneducated, the desperate, the morally blank and the followers will continue to listen and she will continue to incite with her simple, aggressive tones. Blood is on her hands (as well as many others) but she does not get it. Right now I know she is having a 4 pound Moose burger with Bristol "two tons of fun" while Scott is giving BJ's in a public truck stop.



  79. 79

    Re: JJ008 – I'm going to borrow from manymoms here but:
    * President Obama: “They Bring a Knife…We Bring a Gun”
    * President Obama to His Followers: “Get in Their Faces!”
    * President Obama on ACORN Mobs: “I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!”
    * President Obama to His Mercenary Army- SEIU: “Hit Back Twice As Hard”
    * President Obama on the private sector: “We talk to these folks… so I know whose ass to kick.“

    Looks like both sides are equally in the wrong then, right? Or maybe it's just Sarah Palin because the timing and events are convenient.



  80. 80

    I'm still waiting for Sarah Palin to "propose a better idea". All she does is blab and create controversy and not go into depth on any issue or be specific about any policies because she clearly has no idea what she's talking about and wants to keep distracting people from her lack of knowledge. I sincerely hope the Republican party wakes up and gets rid of her, they will if they really want to further their agenda and be taken seriously.



  81. 81

    As much as I don't like her is deplorable to blame her for something a man, who is clearly insane if you saw his mugshot, for his actions she had nothing to do with it. Shame on you Perez



  82. 82

    She should shut up and go curl her bangs!



  83. 83

    Sarah Palin should not be blamed. She is only being blamed to advance a political agenda of the left and it is disgusting that this tragedy is being used in a political manner. AND SHAME ON YOU FOR YOUR EDITORIAL ON THIS!



  84. 84

    What hard core proof do any of ya'll have that links Sarah Palin to this wack job? Oh, yeah thats right… NONE!
    And quit saying this mess about the map because your beloved Democrats had one in 2004 just like Palins.



  85. 85

    She should apologize for being an Idiot first. Then apologize for being a bad mother. Than apologize for being a manipulative uneducated moron. Then apologize for quitting as governor to get rich off of tv . Then apologize for being a liar. then apologize for using her "special " needs son for propaganda.Then apologize for her face being on my tv everyday. Then apologize for inciting violence and using hunting metaphors like she uses toilet paper. Then apologize for having the pathetic show. Then apologize for selling out the country she says she is protecting. Then apologize to all the idiots that believe the garbage she spouts about. Then apologize for being wrong a lot . Then apologize for not knowing simple geography. Then apologize for having children that she controls. Then apologize for wasting hard working peoples money on running for president…. she has NO chance.
    Bristol should run if she runs she might lose weight



  86. 86

    Leave it to piece of shit perez to turn a tragedy into an opportunity to rip into sarah palin and conservatives in general. You are truely a pile of dog shit. We as republicans should not have to defend ourselves for a mentally ill maniac.



  87. 87

    I am NOT a Palin supporter! And I am no longer a Perez supporter! I started looking at your site after reading about your desire to change as relating to bullying. Gave you a try and now am completely turned off by your ignorance and arrogance. Mental health policies and the tragedy of mental illness are to blame.
    A bullseye can represent many things, a targeted sales effort,a plan to make a concerted effort in targeted AREA, in all matter of things really.Its used in advertising all over the world should we now ban the printed bullseye? Both Dem's and Republicans have used the symbolism of a bullseye. If you want a negative statement, the President has said," if they bring knives we will bring guns!" I don't hear anyone talking of that little ill advised speech(this also did not cause the tragedy). Of course you couldn't go there, no so called celebrities would let you sit and fawn over them. And the few that would are only doing it out of fear of your spew before you check the facts talent.I do not believe you have the desire to change, I hope you have other marketable skills, because being inflammatory, and instilling fear in the celebrity community for a skill must be a sad, albeit profitable way to live.
    And so Perez you and your crack research and fact checking team are now on my who cares list.



  88. 88

    She should have taken some responsibility. Rhetoric on both sides needs to be toned down—Obama has said if Republicans come at them with knives then Dems should come at them with guns.



  89. 89

    Palin is more suited to be featured on this site as she has focused her career with a more entertaining slant than an honest political one.
    Her supporters love cause they say she is just like "US". Americans don't want a president who does the same things on camera that you me and our neighbors can do.
    Great Presidents always carry an air of, for lack of a better term, Superheroes. Extraordinary people with ideas and a strong image that make all citizens feel safe and prosperous no matter what party they belong to. Reagan, JFK and FDR are great examples.
    Yes, personality can play a key aspect to public figure's success, this was proven long before the internet. But it is not enough to carry 300 million people and the billions outside of the US who watch our every move.
    Sarah's crosshairs post is not the final nail in her coffin that is her campaign but a blade of grass on the grave.
    Let her have her books, reality shows and seat her at the table with all political pundits who make huge dollars expressing their right to free speech, as we all deserve, and let's begin to focus on the men and women who want to do the job of making this country not only great but keep in time with the new century and the very big world that is getting smaller by the day.

    Now I wait for Perez to leak Gaga's new track.

    Sarah didn't do anything wrong you idiot, bed-wetting librals.

    Re: Slainie – Ah, a cool voice of reason amidst the fires of ignorance. Thank you! :)



  92. 92

    This creature is a total piece of shit. She talks like a thug; she acts like a thug. What the fuck do you expect her followers to think and do? I'm waiting for the day these losers realize what a charlatan she is and turn on her.



  93. 93

    Perez Hilton is such an idiot. He does the exact same thing as Palin, only reversed. Furthermore, Perez doesn't seem to check his sources. He continues to blame Palin for one persons' actions. Not only that, he blasts her for not apologizing. Oh wait, I get blamed for one of the worst events on US soil and I'm supposed to apologize? Again, Perez Hilton is nothing but a hypocrital little bitch. I'd love to have him respond one single time, but he just rakes in the money doing the same thing as Palin, having others write his comments.



  94. 94

    Just curious. If Sarah Palin and the Tea Party with their hate filled , reload
    speeches aren't responsible for all the hate and venom that is being spewed
    by their followers, then why is it that only Democratic politicians are the
    ones being attacked and or threatened for the way they vote issues.

    Re: WakeUpPeople – What evidence do you have that convincingly shows that Ms. Gifford was indeed the target of this mad man? I seem to recall that a Federal judge was actually killed in the massacre. Perhaps HE was the target. Perhaps there was NO TARGET at all. Perhaps this was yet another senseless shooting performed by a damaged individual with a mental disorder. There doesn't have to be a political conspiracy behind every act of ugliness.



  98. 98

    Facts be damned, the democrats see there’s blood on the walls and it simply must be politicized to score cheap, and wholly inaccurate, points. Isn't that right, Perez?

    Atheist
    Truther
    Liberal arts student
    Who likes the Communist Manifesto
    Burns American flags

    Oh sure, it just screams TEA party. LOL Keep talking. I like seeing the Left make utter fools of themselves.

    Re: supersongbird – and the other definitions of the phrase "blood libel" are? Go ahead, post those too, I dare ya

    This woman makes my skin crawl. I love how she threw in the part about duelling good gravy she would love it if it was like that today! Lock up your democrats, wild/domestic animals and anyone who doesn't agree with her America! She wouldn't even need a weapon she has had so much botox if you get to close to her you die from a lethal dose of botulism. Go away Sarah no body wants to see your bad hair and ugly crone like face anymore!!! and I'm not even American, Jeez!
