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 ...

There are definitely no crosshairs on maps and there are definitely no maps with the names of human targets, except for Palin's site and her only reply is to have an assistant give a feeble lie as an excuse.

I wonder what her excuse is for her rallies where those who attended had rifles strapped on their backs, burning pictures of some politicians? She told her followers to "lock and load". Her actions and the actions of some of the so-called media breed violence and hatred while these republicans and tea bag leaders gain money and power. Isn't that how nazis got started? THIS NEEDS TO STOP SO MORE INNOCENT PEOPLE WON'T BE KILLED!

Please join us to demand that Palin take down her infamous cross-hairs hit list and apologize for her role in promoting hateful, violent political rhetoric. http://on.fb.me/epUR68

Palin should be charged and jailed for conspearcy. She is as guilty as if she pulled the trigger herself
for the insitement and naming names to be targetd. Only difference is she isn't paying for the hit man.

You 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.

What hypocrites.

Why aren't you taking Barry Obama to task about his comment, "when they bring a knife, you bring a gun" comments. That seems to be more incindiary.

Further. The nutbag that shot her was a left wing nut job according to his best friend who has been all over the media this a.m.

How can a logical person say that this rant had nothing to do with the shooting?? Crosshair over the State Gifford represented? It did not cause the shooter to become disturbed but it definitely gave him a reason to act. Take a paranoid schizophrenic and tell him the big bad government is trying to control his mind and force him into Healthcare coverage, what can be expected???

The language people are using in America has to stop. The left with their "Take Down Bush" signs a few years ago has to stop. Sarah Palin has to stop. Glenn Beck has to stop. It's all bad for America. It's up to us. Turn off cable news. Vote for civil politicians. We are better than this.

Sarah Palin got a problem. She is the reason for all this hatred. The media should STOP STOP polarizing her comments and simply keep her out of the spotlight. It's a shame before GOD that this Congresswoman had to endure such tragedy because of Sarah Palin's comments and targeting her for trying to do the right thing by people. She need to watch out. GOD does not like ugly people....

You people are nuts it's a coincidental thing. Everyone screams that the right is fear mongering, but yet the left does the same thing every chance they get. Can't it just be called what it is a coincidental thing that happened at an inopportune time.

Obviously, most normal people will view these maps and pictures as nothing more than political jousting. However, there are fringe elements, in both parties, although more on the right with their love of guns and God, that may see these posters and charts as more than political commentary. There are clearly abnormal people out there that believe that it is their patriotic duty to target (kill) elements in the country that they believe are un-American. Guns, God, and political satire should never mix.

**** all you ****ing sick ****s. are metaphor and speaking figuratively lost arts? you can use gun related terms like target, reload, crosshairs, etc. without intending to incite gun violence. who would be stupid enough to think you can't? and politicizing a tragedy like this is shameful.
