Early this week the second anniversary of the intentional torching of the church Gov. Palin's family attends passed with little or no notice by the lamestream media, which never gave the chilling crime much attention to begin with.
On the evening of December 12, 2008, the church was damaged by a fire which caused an estimated $1 million damage to the church building. An investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives several days later confirmed that the burning was a case of arson, as accelerants were found in a number of locations on the church's exterior, including around entrances and exits. Several people were inside the structure at the time, but all were able to escape the fire unharmed.
Though several federal, state and local agencies were involved in the investigation, no arrests have been made, nor have any solid leads been announced. The media reported the fire and the subsequent determination that arson was involved, but quickly lost interest in the story.
If, God forbid, it had been a church the Obamas attended that had deliberately been torched with no arrests or leads produced in even the first few weeks (let alone two whole years), the media would be screaming in outrage that a "hate crime" was being allowed to go unpunished. The press would have demanded the scalps of the authorities who failed to solve the crime and punish those responsible.
Interestingly, two years after the arson, the blood lust on the left continues while the media looks the other way. On the website of Salon magazine, a letter which calls for Sarah Palin to be electrocuted by a cattle prod wielded by convicted dog abuser Michael Vick is prominently displayed. Written by someone using the name "Owen Meany IV," the letter justifies attempted murder with the sentence:
"Vick gets a pet to torture and we get rid of Palin. A win-win for everyone!"This is not the first time that the extreme left has called for physical harm to be inflicted on the former Alaska governor, up to and including the crime of murder. A number of death threats have also been made against Sarah Palin and her family over the past two years.
Ironically, the left has claimed, without producing a shred of real evidence, that Gov. Palin "incited violence" in her stump speeches as a candidate for vice president in the 2008 campaign. As is always the case, upon close examination, it is the left which is doing exactly that which it claims its enemies are doing.
Again, the "tolerant" and "compassionate" left reveals its true nature. Please pray to the good Lord to continue to protect Sarah Palin and her family from all harm and evil.
