Sarah Palin released a video on her Facebook page that just about knocks it out of the park in reference to the vicious, scurrilous attack on free speech in the wake of the Tucson tragedy.

Sarah Palin: “America’s Enduring Strength” from Sarah Palin on Vimeo.

It runs about 7:40 but well worth a listen.

Other than that we’ll declare an OPEN THREAD to air out all y’alls feelings on this.

Why is it that every time something like this occurs it is always followed up by an assault on personal liberty? It doesn’t matter what party they politicians belong to or whether they are “conservative” or “liberal.” There is always an attempt by those in power to take away our rights in the name of security.

As a nation we need to stop blaming society at large for the regrettable actions of the individual. Every individual in this nation should be held accountable for his or her own actions and those who are in power should stop trying to use these tragedies for political gain and to increase the scope of the federal government………………………………………………………………………………………………..and as long… Read more »

IMO, she is close to being the most powerful woman in America. She is the only one who makes the liberals’ blood run cold, sends them running for cover, and crying for their mommas. She literally scares the wits out of them. Of course, since their wits are few and far between, I guess that wouldn’t be TOO tough…

In their mind she is a “vicious retard” (quoting a coworker) and will never bother to see it.

Watching Sarah Palin’s video, I had to think that “this is what a president should say”. Tonight, Buraq Hussein Obama will be at the University of Arizona campus for a memorial service. Memorial services tend to follow a pattern. They are somber. The speeches are in praise of those memorialized. The speakers do not insert themselves or their personal agendas… Read more »

I was just watching Fox News. Apparently somebody has been trying to link her use of the words “blood libel” to anti-Semitism because some victims were Jewish. I was not aware of any such connection. No less than Alan Dershowitz and Charles Krauthammer refuted it.

Am watching the memorial live. So far, it’s more like a native American politically-correct pep-rally than any other memorial that I’ve ever seen. Waaay to much cheering, self-promotion, and “wooting” than I am comfortable with. “Together We Thrive”?!? WTF is this? A slogan for a memorial/funeral — OMFG! Creepy. But it is early yet — plenty of time for it… Read more »

This was a handy link regarding the blood libel spew, from National Review, listing instances of pundits using the phrase “blood libel”, including Andrew Sullivan who today started denouncing the practice.

Q: How many left-wing media pundits could fit into Andrew Sullivan’s little anti-Palin clown car of crazy?

A: All of them.

Yeah, I’m Jewish and I don’t care if she used the term “blood libel.” The Jews don’t OWN that term, and it is not one which they should want to own.

And Obama’s speech is over. It was actually a pretty good speech, somber and yet hopeful, but delivered at a drunken fraternity party with free T-shirts and bumper stickers. Someone in the White House planning office was probably stuck in campaign mode (as is his entire administration, which is part of the reason he’s been such a failure), and wanted… Read more »
