Sarah Palin's Crosshairs Map Still on Facebook

1/10/2011 1:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sarah Palin still has not removed the controversial target list map from her Facebook page -- the one that was posted back in March and features crosshairs all over a map ... and the name of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, among others.

Sarah Palin Crosshairs

Palin has been getting flack for the map in the wake of the Giffords shooting over the weekend. A Palin staffer defended the graphic, saying, "We never ever, ever intended it to be gun sights ... It was simply crosshairs like you'd see on maps."

So we ask ...

This is ridiculous. What about the Democratic campaigns that showed the same kind of thing? Target areas to win back? There were many. Sara got the heat for it though, quite possibly because of her words, but this is in no way the Republicans, Sara's, the Dems fault. The guy was insane. This didn't drive him to it, but the anger, the nastiness that surround politics probably did. You are just adding to it.

This has nothing to do with Palin. So if I said I was "targeting Cancun for my next vacation", then there was a mass murder there ... would I be responsible? Man left wing nut jobs are insane. Case in point ... the shooter in the Arizona shooting was A DEMOCRAT!!

While Sara Palin didn't pull the trigger she and all the other talking heads that spread hatred and vitriol share responsibility for the tragedy in Arizona. I hope when they go to sleep at night they see the faces of all those innocent people killed or injured especially the nine year old girl whose.life was cut short.

Daily Kos targeted Giffords w/a "bulls eye" 6/08. Dems use "bulls eye" targets extensively in political graphics. Map shows states Democrats want targeted including Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords

Bill Belichick & Rex Ryan have crosshairs fixed on quarterbacks Mark Sanchez & Tom Brady
www.nydailynews.com
For a dozen years, the rivalry was fueled by controversial defections, cold handshakes and illegal videotaping. Then along came the outsider, Rex Ryan, who jumped into the Jets-Patriots pool with a cannonball, creating waves bigger than before.

Sarah Ditsy Palin is no more than a soulless celeb media darling who is no more than one of few attractive citizens of Alaska. Family, Faith, Flag, aye. Well lets break that down. Family - divorce, grandchildren out of wedlock...not managed very well at all, but hardly the point. Perhaps she should stay home more and worry about family for once in her life. Rather that injecting similar confusion instability into an already unsolvable quandary, our government. Faith - Invented in medieval times by similar soulless Governing Systems to navigate from political problems and increase production by brainwashing surfs/citizens. Similar to Bush, her platform relies on the fiction, falsehood and illusions of faith, in-lue-of substantial cognitive function or actually dealing with real problems and unpopular but good solutions. Flag - Her patriotism is base on turn of the century mindsets: like forging a homestead from a frontier, gunning down defenseless animals and perpetual denudation the Pacific Ocean. Her old fashioned constitution contradict true modern day patriots, who promote sustainable lifestyles and other environmentally friendly issues. In terms of her flashy three F's slogan, she gets three additional F's for FAILED on all three accounts because she does not practice what she preaches, in either category, as far as I see. With media image guru pseudo-leaders running things, it's no wonder this country is as ethically and financially bankrupt as she is. Furthermore, if I, a single, run of the mill working class man, created and published an image with gun cross-hairs targeting governors, I would be branded as a domestic terrorist and shadowed by the FBI for the rest of my life, if not hunted down and thrown in jail. Yet for some OJ Simpson reason, I am forced except it when a cutie soccer-mom private-citizen media-darling spouts in this manor. Perhaps we should thank her. Her strategy; mindless, amoral, unethical, and terroristic...provides unintended, but very meaningful information about her void of responsibility and integrity. I'd sooner vote for Santa Claus than Two Face Palin. I would vote for her...incarceration.

I don't know what motivated the AZ shooter, but it would not hurt Palin to take the map down as a show of respect for the dead and injured.

It doesn't matter if she didn't intend what happened. It happened.

To leave it up now is to agree with the shooter and promote more violence.

The KKK was started by Democrats who were against abolishing slavery. The Democrats also fought giving blacks the vote and equal rights amendment. These historical facts seemed to be overlooked today.

Also overlooked - your ability to understand the paradigm shifts within the American political parties over the course of our history...

BTW, I'm in no way, shape, or form identify with or am a member of any political party, so refrain from calling me a bleed-heart lib or whatever...

The point is that the constant uncivilized, inflammatory rhetoric can set the gullible and the whack jobs over the edge.
