Palin's "Refudiate" Tweet on Mosque Near Ground Zero Draws Fire
Source: CBS News

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin weighed in on Sunday on the controversy over a mosque planned near ground zero, but her remarks were met with a wave of criticism over her sentiment and her choice of words.

"Ground Zero Mosque supporters: doesn't it stab you in the heart, as it does ours throughout the heartland? Peaceful Muslims, pls refudiate," Palin said via Twitter.

She subsequently deleted her "tweet" and published a new message, which did not include the made-up word "refudiate": "Peaceful New Yorkers, pls refute the Ground Zero mosque plan if you believe catastrophic pain caused @ Twin Towers site is too raw, too real."

Liberal commentators, however, were already pouncing on her messages.

"If republicans can demand that immigrants speak English, can't we demand same of Sarah Palin?" liberal blogger John Aravosis tweeted.

...

Daisy Kahn, a spokeswoman for the group reportedly said in a written statement, "We agree with Ms. Palin that it is time to heal from the wounds of the tragic events of 9/11. We peace- loving Muslims have a responsibility to lead the effort of rebuilding Lower Manhattan. We envision a community center for multi-faith collaboration that is focused on promoting integration, tolerance of difference and community cohesion."

...

Meanwhile, bloggers continued to skewer Palin for her language choice after her second tweet. Bogger Charles Johnson notes that Palin uses the word "refute" incorrectly in her second tweet, while he points out that she used the word "refudiate" last week during an appearance on Fox News.

"pain is too real". Bimbo doesn't know the problem was with the World Trade Organization and their policies, and want's to make it out like it was a religious attack. And what happened to FREEDOM OF RELIGION? Or is that only for Christians? America is a melting pot, get used to it loser(Palin). And WTO wasn't about attacking Christians. Man, that woman is ignorant! I mean - way beyond proper English errors.

26. Repudiate is the word you're thinking of
It's an easy mistake. But Sarah is so haughty that when called on it, she didn't admit her mistake but instead went into attack mode. Then, she just made herself an easy target.

Refute. Repudiate.

Not that I buy for a second that she did it on purpose.

22. Now she's telling the people of NYC what to do and how to feel about 9/11?
As if they just won't know what to do, having experienced the tragedy themselves, if the 2-year governor of a state thousands of miles away doesn't tell them.

Not to mention that "refute" is STILL wrong.

23. Palin Erroneously Calls Kodiak Largest US Island
Palin Erroneously Calls Kodiak Largest US Island
Palin, endorsing candidate in NH, gets largest US island wrong; it's Hawaii, not Kodiak
The Associated Press
By HOLLY RAMER Associated Press Writer
CONCORD, N.H. July 19, 2010 (AP)

Sarah Palin incorrectly calls Alaska's Kodiak Island the largest island in America in a Facebook post endorsing a Senate candidate in New Hampshire.

The Big Island of Hawaii is about 440 square miles larger than Kodiak, where Palin and her family were headed Monday.

In endorsing Republican candidate Kelly Ayotte (AY'-aht), Palin also strayed a bit from the facts in praising her for having "won" a case before the U.S. Supreme Court.

As state attorney general, Ayotte defended a law requiring parental notification for teenagers seeking abortions. But it was repealed after the U.S. Supreme Court sent it back to a lower court.

36. I wonder if these nutjobs would complain if someone wanted to
build a Christian church by the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building.

I'm sick of 911 being used as an excuse for Americans to act like xenophobic bigoted dickheads. It's time for those who wallow in tragedy for attention and as an excuse to act like the ego-centric children to get some counseling. It's time to move the f*ck on.

Peaceful Muslims or any other Muslims for that matter, except for the ones involved in this crime, owe us nothing. Anymore than I owe anyone anything because of Timothy McVeigh's actions.
