After the tragic events in Tucson Arizona the "mainstream" liberal media went wild trying to connect Sarah Palin and the TEA Party to the shooting. Of course, there is absolutely no link whatsoever. We now know that the shooter was a deranged nutcase who has had a thing for Representative Giffords for years. Long before there was a TEA Party and before Sarah Palin was a household name outside of Alaska.
That did not stop the media from attempting to incite violence against conservatives, specifically Sarah Palin. The press went out of its way to libel, defame, slander and tar Sarah Palin with something that has absolutely nothing to do with her. Why?
Because the media wants her to be killed by the mob violence they are trying to incite. That is only explanation I can come up with.
Sheeple who believe the crap have even started a Facebook Page called "I hate it when I wake up and Sarah Palin is still alive". This is exactly the kind of thing the media want to see. A CBS poll showed that around 42% of Democrats think the killer (a leftwing, skitzy, atheist pothead) had political motivations in the shootings. (By the way a Republican federal judge was killed)
Sarah Palin is exactly right to call it a "Blood Libel", because that is what it is.
The media has targeted Sarah Palin for the purposes of having her killed, they are hoping that of that 42% of Democrats there is another Jared Lee Loughner.
Oh and before the media go nuts again over the use of the term "blood libel" let us point out that she isn't the first to notice. Professor Glenn Reynolds wrote about it for the Wall Street Journal. Bill Levinson wrote an article for the Israpundit website basically the same thing. Even Alan Dershowitz, who is very liberal, has defended her use of the term. Even a jewish blogger finds nothing inappropriate with the way she used the term.
Not that it will stop the attempted assassins in the press from trying to paint Sarah Palin as an anti-semite now. Of course the term "blood libel" is not anti-semitic, it is just a description of anti-semitic attacks of centuries past where-in jews were accused of heinous things for the purpose of inciting mobs to kill jews.
So it is completely appropriate and in context as used by Sarah Palin, because the media is trying to have her killed.
