“I listened at first puzzled, then with concerned, and now with sadness to the irresponsible statements from people attempting to apportion blame for this terrible event,” Palin said.”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.”
What *was* America’s enduring strength was that for the most part America-hating gutterslime like Palin were relegated to the festering sewers of far-right extremist-fringe hate radio and shunned by decent Americans. There was a time when the use of the term “blood libel” to refer to criticism of sicke-fucke far-right-wing christian theocratic extremists would have been met with absolute horror and unstinting opprobrium by voices of reason in the press. Now it is just, “Some say…, while others say.” Excuse me while I vomit.
