Palin on Shooting: Stop Mindless Finger Pointing!

1/12/2011 10:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sarah Palin has just posted an 8 minute video about the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords -- slamming critics who say she may be to blame for the event.



Palin says "We must reject the idea that every time a law is broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker ... Acts of monstrous criminality stand on their own, they begin and end with the criminals who commit them ... not with law abiding citizens who respectively exercise their first amendment rights at campaign rallies."

Palin came under attack after it was discovered Giffords was targeted by Palin on a map released last fall featuring crosshairs over her district.

In the video, she continues, "Journalists and pundits should not manufacture a blood libel that serves only to incite the very hatred and violence they purport to condemn. That is reprehensible."

Palin also adds "We are better than the mindless finger pointing we endured in the wake of the tragedy."

Just ignore her and she'll go away. She makes a living off of people hating her. Didn't Heidi and Spencer do that too?

Yeah, let's be sure and listen to MSNBC and NPR so we can get all
the good stuff on the Dems & all the bad stuff on the Republicans.
You people amaze me that you can call a college grad, mayor, governor
stupid......what have you done? Since you are Dems you are probable
in a minimum wage job or on welfare.....keep going to the polls and
voting for all the social programs and in the future you will have no
rich people to pay 80% of the taxes to support your butt.

Democrats have used the same visuals, with bulls-eye targets, numerous times and they have also distributed their own hit lists. They have been shown on the news numerous times since the incident. Do you realize how ignorant you look when you keep going on about this now? If she's such a loser why are you liberals so frightened of her? Look at the comments. Looks like a bunch of psychos posting here. Wouldn't you want her to run for President if she can't win?

While Sarah may not have pulled the trigger she has to take some responsibility for her actions as well. And yes its true this man must be crazy but all the more reason to watch what you say and do in the public eye because you never know when someone like that is watching. There are a lot of people that just blindly follow her lead and she has put a target on these people by her actions.

She lost her vice presidential bid due to McCains poor judgement for picking this wacko in the first place.

She aligned herself with the tea baggers to start their so called revolt, she is using gun inuendo to incite violent sedition.

Sarah Palin is criminal no getting around that bent on the overthrow of the country if she doesn't get elected, also involved with succession of Alaska from the union.

An irresponsible quitter, and a corrupt governor.

she should find a deep hole and crawl in it forever.
