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 ...

Guess you haven't seen the poster Democrats used 2 yrs. before Sarah Palin copied her poster from. It shows bull-eye targets on the Republicans they wanted to get rid of. Hate happens in all religions,in all races and all sides have the crazy people.

Funny thing is the Giffords was against Obama on border security and the illegal alien issue. Many dems were very upset with her because she dared to disagree with the messiah. Libs only talking points: blame palin, blame bush, play the race card, play the hate speech card.

Yeah TMZ, you seem real bent on trying to tie this to Sarah Palin. How about you tell the whole story? Perhaps it's different since she's a conservative.

Democrats bullseye map for the 2006 elections, which by the way, looks remarkably similar to Sarah Palin's "crosshairs" map.

This is exactly why I quit supporting the Democratic party. They are always looking for ways to blame everyone else.
It's no ones fault but your own that Bill Clinton and Obama will go down in history as two of the worst presidents in the history of the United States.

I HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE THAT THE SHOOTER SAW PALIN'S POST. THE SHOOTING INCIDENT ASIDE, THIS PROVES PALIN IS UNPRESIDENTIAL. SHE IS THE FORMER VP NOMINEE, FORMER GOVERNOR, AND SOMEONE TOUTED AS A FUTURE PRESIDENT, YET SHE POSTS SOMETHING LIKE THIS. I'M SURE SHE DIDN'T MEAN IT LITERALLY, BUT IT'S INAPPROPIATE.

Those pot smoking Democrats are dangerous.
Keith Olbermann’s show should be canceled do to all those hateful rants he burps up on the pot smoking Democrats who view him. They just can not process his rants.
Olbermann is producing Killer zombies.

I tend to vote Republican, but I believe Sarah Palin and her staff should not insult our intelligence by having us believe that when her PR came up with the "crosshairs" phrase, it was done absolutely without a "play on words" associated to target practice. This does not mean she actually intended for anyone to be physically shot because she immediately followed up the choice of words with a not-effective-enough detraction in stating that she did not mean this in a violent way {I guess buoying up her original intent that she was referring to the crosshairs of a "map"}. However, it still was infantile and irresponsible and she could have found a more sophisticated manner of expression, if she were so inclined. The majority of Republicans are not rednecks and she would do herself well to not play to that marginal group of constituents who love that vernacular. Somebody tell her in this same vernacular that "It ain't gonna ever win the White House down yonder." {Keep the f'n banjos in the closet!}

If Ms. Palin and PR staff truly were so incognizant of the association of her words, she is verifiably too stupid and totally incapable of being sensitive to nuance and resulting implications. Do we want this lady handling the delicate affairs of foreign policy negotiations with this backwoods insensitivity and thickheadedness? I think not, and not even as VP, although Biden is no prize, either.

If the ridiculous happens and she is ever elected to run on the Presidential Republican ticket, the Repubs will find themselves with an even bigger problem than the Dems have inherited with Obama. If she is nominated, the Right ticket will lose 2012. Please do not run.

However, I also think that it is not justified to blame the AZ tragedy on her words or any other idiotic rhetoric resorted to by both sides in the heat of a campaign. We should not add injury to insult by jumping on another bandwagon for purely political reasons, which is exactly what the Dems are resorting to. The Dems seem to religiously resort to these obvious tactics more than any other entity I have seen. Palin may be too redneck in her terminology, but the Dems have no basic core of shame. Slim pickings.

THE DEMOCRATS USED THE SAME MAP TWO YEARS AGO TO TARGET REPUBLICANS. What is the difference?

It's being reported on a reliable news source for stuff other than Lohan that this clown went to one of her rallies over three years ago. That said people were only starting to learn Palins name about that time which means she has nothing to do with this. What a shock. I don't suypport Palin but I do support the truth.
