Congresswoman pointed out Palin’s ‘map’

Gabby Giffords commented on Palin’s “gun sight” map of her district, saying:

“…for example, we’re on Sarah Palin’s targeted list, but the thing is that the way that she has it depicted has the crosshairs of a gun sight over our district, and when people do that, they’ve gotta realize there are consequences to that action.”

But cable news doesn’t want to talk about that. The shooter is just a deranged guy who randomly went after a Democratic congresswoman who’d been targeted by the right wing — at least, that’s the only story you’re going to hear from the bobbleheads.

  1. To Sara Palin’s hit least & the “hemlock party.”

    From the book “AN AUTISTIC WORLD (1)”

    Reasoning wasn’t in most people’s agenda even though quite a few agreed with his defense. The fear it produced to let go of their past was stronger than judging Socrates innocent of instigating a rebellion, so a selected group that wanted his head on a platter moved the minds of many with hard words and slim evidence. Nevertheless, during the trial he stood defiant, loyal to his honest beliefs of giving good advice to anyone that wanted to listen. Even after his sentence, he resisted the impulse of presenting himself as a selfish philosopher, advancing the future demise of those that judged him. Socrates probably knew it was just matter of time until Sparta would make his prediction real. After all, a state without morals is like going to fight a war without soldiers.

  2. The ghost of Alan Berg weeps. I just cannot recall any such violence on the American left. The body count of Palin and Beck goes up and up. This is the inevitable result of Reaganism. Thirty years of destroying understanding (44 if you add in Reagan’s destruction of California schools) leads to violence on this scale. In California right now I can hear Beck, Rush, Hannity, Savage, Hewitt, et al EVERYFUCKINGWHERE. Can’t hear Thom Hartmann anywhere outside of LA or SF.

  3. When I was coming of age politically, we lost Jack Kennedy, Martin Luther King, and Robert Kennedy.

    Saturday’s news made me feel some of the loss, pain, powerlessness that I felt back then.

    But, even then, I had hope. Now, not so much.

    I had trouble recalling violence from the left: Reagan was hit, and his press secretary wounded terribly for life; Wallace was crippled; and Gerald Ford was shot at by Squeaky Fromm (sp?). Then, there was the bomb at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, which killed a researcher (albeit the bombers thought the building would be empty, iirc). I don’t recall much about any of the assailants against Reagan and Wallace…. But, I did have to search my memory. It does seem as if the violence comes from the right, but not only.

  4. The propaganda of the Corporate Media and the inaction of law enforcement to take aggressive action against right wing fanatics will ensure that right wing violence continues. If they pay no price, why should they act otherwise.
