Joan Rivers -- Sarah Palin Is 'Stupid and a Threat'

1/17/2011 2:43 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sarah Palin deserves criticism -- and BLAME -- for the horrifying shooting in Tucson, AZ ... this according to Joan Rivers.

Joan Rivers
Joan was at the Critic's Choice Awards party in Hollywood this weekend when things turned political -- and Joan exclaimed ... "This woman is just stupid and a threat."

So we gotta ask...

Do you guys think that if you keep asking this question you'll eventually get a different answer?

the guy was described as a left winger by those who knew him because of his views that Bush caused 9/11 among other views. However his politics were so skewed it transcended beyond left or right, so even now he can't be classified, though with his flag burning, pot smoking and bush 9/11 blaming, you can't call him Right wing by any means.

Secondly... Obama stated, "If they bring their knives, we bring our guns". Chris Matthews on MSNBC stated that he'd be there to watch when someone pushed a C02 pellet into Rush Limbaugh's head. A democrat running against Republican J.D. Van hollen used a commercial where he put J.D. in crosshairs. (not crosshairs over a district on a map... crosshairs over the actual person.)

If we're going to play this game... I can play this game all day with the left as well.

How do we know it wasn't THEIR rhetoric that set him off since it's the SAME rhetoric?

Not to mention, Sen. Giffords was once a Republican, and still holds MANY conservative ideologies. she's the one politician who truly does reach across the isles and has even gone against her own party to work with Republicans.

So let's call a spade a spade here. The guy was nuts and this wasn't about either political party... but if the left wants to make it that way, come on lets play that game. I can post pages of hateful, angry and threatening things coming from the left.

like when a left-wing pundit stated that certain republican he didn't like needed to be taken into the streets and shot.

Let me get this straight. Not only have his peers referred to him as a "radial, pothead liberal," but the facts speak for themselves.

He reads freaking Mein Kampf. Loves drugs. Hates Christians. Doesn't believe in God. Hates capitalism. Hates Bush and believes he is behind 9-11. Listens to leftwing anti-capitalism/American punk rock music. Loves hate-mongering/fear-inciting liberal conspiracy theory movies ie; Michael Moore, yet the kooks are really trying to blame this Sarah Palin??

This nut sounds like any sheep you'd find at an Obama rally or in Bill Maher's audience.

If you people were anymore stupid you'd be a rock, literally.

And thats the truth    

The 62% of people who don't think Sarah Palin is at least partially to blame have had the cheese slip off of their crackers. If you go into a crowded building, yell "fire" which causes a stampede, and people die either from the fire or being trampled, you are at least partially to blame - morally AND legally - for any injuries or deaths. What Sarah Palin did with the crosshairs map and the "blood libel" comment was the same principle. She is equally to blame.

Again, go to Google images and look up Democratic maps with targets. You will find 2. I will bet the shooter had not even seen Sarahs map as probably most of the people posting had not, including myself.

The shooter was a registered independent. His friends said he was not even political,like most young people. He had been obsessed with the congresswoman since 2007, before Palin and the Tea Party.

He listened to Jimmy Hendrix, he worshipped skulls and burned the flag. Not a typical Republican ideology.

What the Palin/Republican haters dont realize is that you are cutting off your nose to spite your face. I was a Democrat for 45 years, but, registered as an independent. I would vote for Palin just to tick people like you off.

the guy doing the shooting had serious mental health issues that weren't addressed as are so many other walking time bombs.
in trying to make a case against Palin, Beck etc [for political gain] they're missing the condition of the national mental health system. centering their whole argument around politcal aspirations while ignoring a system that needs revamping.

Joan Rivers is an old dried up douche bag. Liberals blame everyone else, that is why the Republican party is growing stronger.

Why is it every-thing Palin and her children do is put down. Hmm lets see some coverage of Ashley Biden. A coke head who works for the welfare of CHILDREN. Ms party girl,Slut and Doper. Far worse than anything the Bush girls or Palins kids EVER did. Come on now. Hypocrites run this site. Go on Ashley do another line,then talk about helping kids...Hypocrite = Liberal

She's starting to look like Jocelyn Wildenstein too.

And, I'd just like to say, I don't know why people feel the need to point out that the shooter was a "pothead" I seriously, seriously doubt that his marijuana use played any part in his killing spree. If anything, this guy needed more/better quality pot.

Words CAN hurt. Hard to believe people are so dense!(Are you listening, Babawa Walters, et al?)
One cannot utter racial epithets. One cannot yell "FIRE" in a theater, falsely. One cannot, should not, make fun of another's physical imperfections. The list goes on and on.

Just look at Palin's followers/fanatics! If you have a working brain, that should tell you enough!
