Palin advisor and Sen. McCain address hysterical Democrats' claims

A Sarah Palin spokesperson has answered the former governor's critics, including some prominent Democrats, who claimed that she is encouraging threats of violence against members of Congress who voted in favor of health care reform. As we and several of our colleagues have reported, the charges are bogus and politically motivated:
An adviser to Palin responded by pointing to several instances in which the former Alaska governor has urged supporters to focus their energies on civil debate and action at the ballot box - not extremist activities.

"We are now the keepers of an honorable tradition of conservative values and good works, Palin said at the national Tea Party Convention in Nashville last month. "We must never forget that it is a sacred trust to carry these ideas forward. It demands civility and it requires decent, constructive, issue-oriented debate."

The adviser also noted that Palin spoke out last year after the murder of abortion provider George Tiller in Kansas, writing on her PAC Web site that "violence is never an answer in advancing the pro-life message."

"Its good that she finally agrees with the Democrats on something," the adviser told CNN. "[House Majority Whip] Jim Clyburn said that silence equals consent, and in this matter she agrees, which is why she has been vocal about condemning violence."
Sen. John McCain, Gov. Palin's running mate in the 2008 presidential election, defended the governor's Facebook posting on NBC's "Today Show" this morning:
"I have seen the rhetoric of targeted districts as long as I've been in politics, please," McCain said. "Any threat of violence is terrible but to say there that there is a targeted district or that we reload or go back into the fight again, please, those are fine, they are used all the time."

  1. The left is scared to death that they are really losing control of themselves. I was on one loony left blog yesterday, and they were demanding that Facebook delete Gov. Palin's page. She's fast approaching 1.5 million supporters there, and the left knows how effective she has used that format to fight 0bama.

  2. Let's be clear about something.

    They know that she is in the country getting stronger. They are getting weaker. They know this.

    It scares them.

  3. Let's talk about a REAL act of violence. The burning down of Sarah Palin's church with women and children still inside just after the election. This horrible act of violence went unreported by the MSM and it seems the federal investigators aren't doing much of an investigation.

    Now is the time for us to once again raise this issue. Email FOX and demand they report on the story. Let's start an online petition to Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid that Congress investigate this matter as to why federal agencies have not properly investigated this crime. Let's have an online petition to Attorney General Holder demanding more invetigative resources be put into solving this crime.

  4. Given that the Left knows full well what they intend to do to us, they're terrified that we might gain control over them and they "know" that we will do to them what they intend to do to us...when all we really want to do is prevent them from destroying us all, including themselves. Their's is irrational fear - ours is common sense concern.

  5. The comments on the CNN page are absolutely frightening. Calling us "dangerous," calling for Governor Palin's imprisonment. They keep saying she is a "domestic terrorist" too. All of this would be laughable except these people are actually in power right now. I don't want to believe there are that many left-wingers out there that are pushing this garbage on their own.. Frankly, I don't. Rep. Clyburn associated Conservatives and the GOP with terrorists on MSNBC the other day. This is a top-down effort to marginalize and distract ALL of us.. This is the way of the left.

    I believe this will backfire on them though. It did when they tried it during the town-halls last summer. In order for it to work for them, there would have to be some element of truth to their accusations... There is ZERO.
