Did Daily KOS Incite Shooting?

Of course not. But, you may have heard some breathless liberal spreading the talking point about how Sarah Palin incited violence with her imagery of "crosshairs" on Gabrielle Giffords. Of course, Ms. Palin's crosshairs were on a map, but to hear the libs explain it, it was photos of politicians with the crosshairs superimposed. For the sake of clarity, here is the image in question:

Part of her "incendiary" rhetoric:
We’re going to fire them and send them back to the private sector...we’re going to print pink slips for members of Congress...

"Targeting" politicians for defeat is obviously code speak for "Please assassinate these people."

So, for your consideration, Markos Moulitsas and his "Bullseye" on Gabrielle Giffords:

Anyone care to point oout the hypocrisy in calling out Sarah Palin for inciting violence when the Left is doing virtually the same thing? Oh yeah. There's a world of difference between the image of a crosshair and a bullseye! /sarcasm

Trying to blame the horrific actions of Jared Lee Loughner on political rhetoric from either side of the aisle, is opportunistic pandering. The people whose knee jerk reaction was to blame Sarah Palin and the Tea Party and conservatives in general should be ashamed of themselves. Sadly, they have no shame.

  1. The left may have gotten away with such smear tactics before, but it is impossible now in the internet age. No wonder liberal statists at the FCC want to control it.

    Free and open speech is a danger to liars everywhere.

  2. Sadly, some of the people exposed to the lies will never hear the facts or the mumbled non-apologies of the smear machine, but their impression will have been left for their next set of talking points.
