So Palin and SarahPAC and Fox News amping up the "take 'em out" and "reload" rhetoric for months on end now, then a real-world tragedy occurring for Rep. Giffords and her staff/friends today in Arizona, is no cause for concern?
That's what most on the right are saying today. Their silence on the image above is deafening. Though it was down within 30 minutes of the shootings.
Jonathan Martin points out that after the election, Palin tweeted about her success (18 of the seats went to the GOP) by saying "remember months ago 'bullseye' icon used 2 target the 20 Obamacare-lovin' incumbent seats?" Throughout 2010, when Palin was criticized for the target map, she either didn't respond or mocked the "lamestream media" for interpreting her gun metaphors as calls for violence. At the Southern Republican Leadership Conference, for example, she got big applause when she said "Don't retreat, reload -- and that is not a call for violence!" The media wasn't going to force her to stop using the gun line. [SOURCE]
