Did Daily KOS Incite Shooting?

By Proof

Of course not. But, you may have heard some breathless liberal spreading the talking point about how Sarah Palin incited violence with her imagery of "crosshairs" on Gabrielle Giffords. Of course, Ms. Palin's crosshairs were on a map, but to hear the libs explain it, it was photos of politicians with the crosshairs superimposed. For the sake of clarity, here is the image in question:

Part of her "incendiary" rhetoric:
We’re going to fire them and send them back to the private sector...we’re going to print pink slips for members of Congress...

"Targeting" politicians for defeat is obviously code speak for "Please assassinate these people."

So, for your consideration, Markos Moulitsas and his "Bullseye" on Gabrielle Giffords:

Anyone care to point oout the hypocrisy in calling out Sarah Palin for inciting violence when the Left is doing virtually the same thing? Oh yeah. There's a world of difference between the image of a crosshair and a bullseye! /sarcasm

Trying to blame the horrific actions of Jared Lee Loughner on political rhetoric from either side of the aisle, is opportunistic pandering. The people whose knee jerk reaction was to blame Sarah Palin and the Tea Party and conservatives in general should be ashamed of themselves. Sadly, they have no shame.

  1. Yes... "opportunistic"

    Where's the compassion they claim to have? This woman is a person first! Regardless of her political stance... Mother of two...

  2. It is truly shameful opportunistic pandering. Jared Lee Loughner is a nut case anti-semite and nothing more. His murdering her is not even political.

    I am praying for Mrs. Gifford, the victims and their families. I also pray for Jared that he will give his heart to Jesus Christ. He needs to be saved.

  3. Shameful leftist propaganda

  4. Sarah's graphic was a tempest in a tea pot. And people use colorful and figurative language all the time. (Don't beat me up over this!)
    Only the truly insane would interpret it literally.
    The faux outrage of the Left, is calculated and apparently, now being used as a fundraiser for them. Shameless.

  5. Video response;

    And Jeff, isn't strange how those that spout that nonsense are the very ones that displayed so much hate towards Bush?
