|February 2010, Palin receives rifle from Republican party in Arkansas.|
My heart goes out to the families of the victims of this terrible tragedy in Connecticut today. Words can’t express the horror everyone feels in seeing such evil manifested against innocent children. Nothing could be worse than the murder of innocent children. Let’s all pray for the victims, their families, and the whole nation.
You would think that after what happened with Gabby Giffords that Palin would stay FAR away from the issue of gun violence, but nooo!
You know the fact is that Sarah Palin has done more to promote the idea of gun ownership and gun use than just about any other media figure in the last ten years.
She evangelized on behalf of the pro-gun agenda on the 2008 campaign trail, famously saying:
"I love meat. I eat pork chops, thick bacon burgers, and the seared fatty edges of a medium-well-done steak. But I especially love moose and caribou. I always remind people from outside our state that there's plenty of room for all Alaska's animals--right next to the mashed potatoes."
She also played at being a hunter on her ill fated reality show.
(You just know that conservative young women all over the country watched this and wanted to own a gun that their daddy could load and aim for them, while a caribou stood placidly in place until they successfully killed it, JUST like their heroine Sarah Palin.)
Palin also used gun imagery to target politicians that she wanted her pack of Teabaggers to take down in the 2010 elections.
In fact the promotion of gun ownership continued even on daughter Bristol's craptastic reality show:
Back in Wasilla, the excitement meter inches up a notch as Bristol and sis Willow plan Sarah's surprise birthday party. The shocker? They buy her a pink, purse-size handgun.
I guess what I am trying to say to Sarah Palin is, "Shut the fuck up! Haven't you done enough damage already?"
The situation concerning gun violence in this county is out of control, and the last thing anybody needs during a time like this is some pistol packing imbecile suddenly chiming in as if she gives a crap about anybody but herself, in the hopes that she can get some attention.
Well here I gave you some attention, now fuck off!
Update: Look even Grannie Grifter's boss has had enough.
