Political bile blamed for shooting

Posted: Tuesday, January 11, 2011

I simply can't find the words to express my disgust with Sarah Palin and her pals at Fox News; their evil artistry of blended truth, lies and bile seems to have set the stage for the horrific assassination attempt against Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

Every generation breeds monsters who prey on people's fears and exploit those fears for personal gain. In the same way we Americans blame radical Muslim clerics for the murder of Pakistani governor Salaam Taseer, Palin and her "fair and balanced' buddies should be held accountable for today's slaughter of six, including a precious little 9-year-old girl.
