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 ...

Sara Palin is always indignet when some one makes a comment about her. She was upset when the media got ahold of her pregnant teen-age daughter, she is the one that brought her to the attention of all of us in the first place,before McCain forced her onto all of us, I didn't know or cared about her and her family. You bet!!!!!!!She knew what she was doing when she posted the map. Now it is whine time for her again.

Hope the Tea Party/Sarah Palin/GOP are happy now.
By the way, thank you Mr. McCain for the wisdom you
displayed when you chose her as your running mate...

Yes, it was the rhetoric remarks from politicians like Sarah Palin that has to blamed for the recent tragedy in AZ. She was the one who made boastful remarks like 18 of the 20 Dems are gone. She was the one who had the crosshairs of a gun on Democrat Gabrielle. Palin knows she is under fire, so now wants to twist everything . She is the one who incites non-political activists from the Tea Party and others, now trying to be a saint and preach non-violence and "blood libel" etc etc.

Papers found in a safe at the suspect’s home indicated that as early as 2007 (long before Sarah Palin was known to anyone south of the Canadian border) he was interested in Gabby Giffords. He even attended a Gifford’s meeting and didn’t like the way she answered his question. I am an Independent and try to look at issues with a "level eye". Both major parties have their pundits and commentators. When comparing comments by conservatives Beck, O'rielly & Hanniety to comments by liberals Behar, Roseanne Barr & Marr one can easily determine the more vicious group. School friends describe Loughner as a left winger who used drugs and was anti-government. I don't think the guy fit any normal political mold. He is a Nut! Much like the individuals who shot President Reagan or killed John Lennon. What about the shootings at Columbine or Fort Hood? This political practice of "look what your team did" is total BS. There have always been, and always will be a small segment of our society that is mentally unstable. The truth is, there's not much we can do to identify or stop them.

One other thought. The far left blog “Dailey Kos” in 2008 encouraged Democrats to place “cross-hairs” on numerous democratic congressmen during the upcoming election because they were not liberal enough, he accused them of violating the Constitution. That list included Gabriel Giffords!"BlueBoy" had also posted to that blog just recently that he was a major Giffords supporter in the recent election. But Giffords did not vote for Polosi to be the leader of the House Democrats. BlueBoy then posted that Giffords was "dead" to him.That post was removed 2 days ago. Both parties can be pretty vile. The truth is the truth.

I'm very upet that a person who could have been our vice presiden could be so insensative as to defend her references to cross hairs and gun violence in the wake of the tradigy in Arazona.

Removal of the facebook page and a sincere apology about the incident would have been appropriate.

No one blames Sarah for the incident but many of us would like to see her and people like her and the Right Wing talk show hosts tone it down. Enough is enough!!!

The map with the crosshairs and the comment that went with it says it all. I am an easy going person ,but that said
"shoot 'em" to me. She can try to back track, but I think she just shot off her own foot!
By the way, I never saw a map with cross hairs before. Circles ,but no cross hairs.

Even the kindest of lawyers would not help you with medical bills if you slipped on his/her property; it would be acknowledging some responsibility; implied or real. Clearly SP lawyers are aware a hastly retreat would acknowledge the obvious. Oh yeah .."surveyor mark/view(?)". Not acknowleging the obvious (by cominng up with a lame-o psuedo-explaination) makes children and most people wary. I'm afraid she's toast.

Hey TMZ why aren't you complaining about the map here:
Rep. Van Hollen used MSNBC to claim Palin’s map was dangerous. In fact, the website of the organization he runs has a nearly identical map. Rep. Van Hollen should be asked to explain the differences between the two maps. Specifically, what makes Palin’s map “dangerous” and his map not so much?

I guess by your warped thinking a similar map by a democrap is OK but the same map by the GOP is dangerous. Why didn't you complained when two bit actor Alec Baldwin went on TV and said the citizens should go to Congressman Henry Hyde's house and stone his family to death. Then of course Baldwin also told his own daughter he would kill her. Now he wants to run for political office.

Sounds like TMZ's type of candidate.

It's not just the map, its the rhetoric ("reload, don't retreat"; "target" these individuals (who are indicated by cross hairs on Palin's map)) and the vitriolic rancor that incite crazy people to do hateful things.

"Like you see on a map." How many other maps have you seen with this symbol? Perhaps an occasional one dealing with recommended hunting sites.

It would be nice if the map were taken down--out of respect for the feelings of others. But conservatives don't seem to grasp such feelings.
