Before the suspect in the shooting in Arizona had been identified, many on the Left began pointing fingers and accusing Conservatives, Tea Partiers and Republicans of murder. (Although, after the Fort Hood shooting, those same people urged the public to not jump to conclusions.)
However, after the shooting of someone who happens to be a Democrat, Sarah Palin and Conservatives are blamed for mass murder commited by a lone shooter - a shooter that no one knew anything about.
If that's not inciting and spreading hate, I don't know what is.
Why blame Sarah Palin? Apparently, the answer is, why not?
Those on the Left, apparently, feel that this map, one I blogged about last March, is responsible for the deaths of six innocent victims.
Read these stories if you haven't seen them yet. Unbelievable.

No one bothered to mention that Democrats ran almost identical political maps to Palin's, the latter from the DCCC in 2009. Interesting...I wonder why?
Markos Moulitsas from the Daily Kos actually had the GALL to tweet “Mission Accomplished, Sarah Palin” after the incident because of her Target map.
So, when did Markos decide to scrub this target list from his web site? Before or after he tweeted, accusing Sarah Palin of causing mass murder?
And how about this article from Daily Kos? It was scrubbed, too.
Or how about these political ads:
Liberals don't have a problem with these ads by Democrats? No one bothered to wonder if these contributed to the hostile, violent atmosphere in politics?
I guess Democrats don't seem to find the rhetoric used by Obama inciteful?
Apparently rhetoric is only *hateful* when it comes from the Right. Apparently only Right wingers are capable of violence - despite all the evidence to the contrary. How many events have we seen lately that have occured, that have been blamed on the *violent rhetoric of the Right* only to find out it was committed by someone on the Left?
Nidal Malik Hasan
J. Patrick Bedell....
This rush by Olbermann, Shultz, MSNBC, the sheriff in Arizona, CNN, Krugman, NBC, and many, many others was irresponsible, inflammatory and hateful. Plain and simple. No one thinks this puts a target on Palin, and other conservatives?
All of this hateful finger pointing is especially rich when there is nothing, NOTHING, to support their claims that this attack was caused by the political rhetoric of the Right, or that the shooter was a *right winger*.
Loughner's classmates said he was a left winger, at least in 2007. Loughner seems to have been obsessed with Gabby Griffords, keeping a letter she sent him in 2007, thanking him for attending her event. He was showing increasing signs of instability, worrying and scaring classmates and professors. "He wasn't especially political, Mr. Marriotti said, though he expressed frustration with the Bush Administration."
He believed the U.S. government was behind 9/11, and worried that governments were maneuvering to create a unified monetary system (“a New World Order currency” one friend said) so that social elites and bureaucrats could control the rest of the world.Loughner registered to vote on Sept. 29, 2006, identifying himself as an independent.
On his YouTube page, he listed among his favorite books “Animal Farm” and “Brave New World” — two novels about how authorities control the masses. Other books in the wide-ranging list included “Mein Kampf,” ”The Communist Manifesto,” ”Peter Pan” and Aesop’s Fables.
Seriously, just WHO the HELL are *they* to self righteously point fingers and accuse the *right* of murder, much less of spewing hate?
Did they forget about ALL of this, from the last decade:

I hate it when I wake up and Sarah Palin is still alive

Don't miss O'Reilly's Talking Points Memo.
Instead of mourning the loss of those who died in the shooting, the Left chose to attack and accuse people on the right of murder. Without a shred of evidence, or proof. They need to think about that one, for a good long while. Who exactly are the ones spreading and spewing hateful bile?
Liberals don't want Rap music, video games or violent movies restricted or censored, blamed for encouraging or inciting violence, or to be held accountable or linked to violent crimes or behavior (even songs that glorify cop killing, misogyny, rape, murder). Yet somehow, Sarah Palin is responsible for mass murder because of a political map used by Democrats and Republicans alike?
I would have SO much more to add to this if I were at home, on my own computer. This is just beyond the pale.
My thoughts go out to the families of all those involved. Especially the little girl, Christina-Taylor Green, who was born on 9/11/01.
