We have been waiting for Sarah Palin to reply to the opportunistic ghouls on the left who have irresponsibly and maliciously laid blame for the Arizona massacre on Governor Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Fox News, Michelle Bachmann, etc.
It is clear that the murderer is a paranoid schizophrenic with no coherent political agenda. We also know that he did not listen to talk radio nor watch TV news.
Thus, the charge that Jared Loughlin’s shooting spree was inspired by overheated rhetoric from the right is completely false, a vicious slander by bitter liberals who, in the last election, witnessed an historical rejection of progressive dogma.
But nothing, especially facts, will halt the cynical charge of the left.
Now, they have seized on the phrase blood libel in Sarah Palin’s address as, well, something to seize upon and delegitimize—as the left delegitimizes Israel.
Seraphic Secret was, perhaps, the first in the blogosphere to correctly identify this liberal blood libel. Further, we have said that Sarah Palin and all the usual conservative suspects have become the hated Jews—scapegoats—to the progressive left.
Thus, we applaud Sarah Palin’s decision to use this highly charged but accurate description.
And let’s be honest, no matter how measured and eloquent Governor Palin’s remarks, the left will relentlessly attack and smear her for she is a direct and effective threat to their vacuous world view.
It’s nice to see that Alan Dershowitz, a liberal, agrees with Seraphic Secret and Sarah Palin on the appropriateness of the blood libel label.
