Sarah Palin claims a mythical Jewish blood ritual is being perpetrated against her
Palin courts controversy with 'blood libel' analogy
On a day set aside for healing and prayer in the wake of the Tucson shootings, all vestiges of a political armistice were shattered when Sarah Palin, the former Alaska Governor, issued a video message accusing her critics of committing "blood libel" against her.
Sarah Palin responded this week to suggestions that her violent gun rhetoric helped set the tone for the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords by claiming she was the victim of a blood libel by the media, which begs the question, does Sarah Palin have any actual idea what a blood libel is?
A blood libel brothers and sisters is a historical term for a mythical Jewish ritual used by anti-semites to torture and execute Jews for crimes they didn't actually commit. It dates back to the 12th Century when Crazy Christians believed Jews killed children to re-enact the crucifixion of Christ. What makes Sarah Palin's use of this anti-Semitic crime to describe the media's treatment of her particular galling, is the fact that Gabrielle Giffords is actually Jewish.
How this pig ignorant woman came to run for the Vice-President of the United States of America should send a deep shiver of fear through all right thinking human beings across the planet.
Gosh haven't those from the right attempting to defend Sarah and attack the left for suggesting her rhetoric had anything to do with Giffords shooting gone VERY quiet since her inane use of the term 'Blood Libel'
Earth to Sarah, shut the fuck up.
