Palin staffer calls using tragedy to score political points 'obscene' :

<...>

Palinistas are furious over the accusations. Read here and here (just for starters). They blame the left using a tragedy to score political points. A Palin staffer, Rebecca Mansour told a radio talk show host Saturday that doing so is "obscene" and "appalling." In fact, she said that the "target list" was not intended to allude to guns.

"We never ever, ever intended it to be gun sights," she said.

"It's surveyor's symbols," the interviewer Tammy Bruce suggested. Bruce, a Palin supporter, describes herself as "a gay, pro-choice, gun owning, pro-death penalty, Tea Party Independent Conservative. " Her show is promoted as a "chick with a gun and a microphone."

From Palin's Facebook page, March 2010: Warning: Subject to New Politically Correct Language Police Censorship.

<...>

To the teams that desire making it this far next year: Gear up! In the battle, set your sights on next seasons targets! From the shot across the bow the first seconds tip-off your leaders will be in the enemys crosshairs, so you must execute strong defensive tactics. You wont win only playing defense, so get on offense! The crossfire is intense, so penetrate through enemy territory by bombing through the press, and use your strong weapons your Big Guns to drive to the hole. Shoot with accuracy; aim high and remember it takes blood, sweat and tears to win.

Media Matters, October 2010: Conservative media figures have history of violent rhetoric

<...>

Palin: "Don't Retreat, Instead - RELOAD!" Fox News contributor Sarah Palin posted a list of House Democrats who voted for health care reform with crosshairs aimed at their locations. In a March 23 tweet about her map, Palin wrote: " 'Don't Retreat, Instead -- RELOAD!' " Palin's list was criticized by conservative Elizabeth Hasselbeck, who introduced and endorsed Palin during the 2008 campaign, as helping foster a climate of violent rhetoric. Hasselbeck added that the list is "purely despicable" and "insane."
