    These members that just started this better think what they are doing. A published slander is a libel and libel judgments are usually much bigger. I hope DU has deep pockets. That piece of slander is going to cost especially since they have zero evidence to prove that. This is a act of desperation and pure hate towards Palin that is unheard of in modern day politics. Sarah Palin had absolutely nothing to do with this act of violence against Giffords or the other citizens that tragic day.


    Pundit Press: Members of DU Start "Petition to Indict Sarah Palin as an Accessory to Murder"

    In the aftermath of the Jared Loughner shootings, crazed assumptions were being thrown out by the left. From, Loughner is a crazed conservative to, Loughner is a Tea Partier out to get Democrats. The one that finally took with the left, however, was thus: sure, Jared Loughner was crazy, but people like Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin pushed him to the brink!

    Did they have evidence? No. Did they have a motive to suggest their assumption? No. Was there evidence saying that they were wrong? Absolutely. Regardless, however, liberals pushed forward.

    Enter Democratic Underground.

    Known as a liberal bastion, "DU" is one of the biggest leftist sites on the internet. Literally minutes after news broke about the shootings in Arizona, DU members were some of the first to blindly blame Sarah Palin for the shooting. Even more stupid: members of Democratic Underground actually started a petition to "Indict Sarah Palin as an Accessory to Murder."

    Here is the entire last paragraph from the written petition:

    And because this incitement to violence resulted in the deaths of so many people, including a federal judge and a nine-year-old child, who were the innocent victims of what seems clearly an attack on a United States Congresswoman, Gabrielle Giffords, who survives, we believe that Sarah Palin should be made to answer in court, under oath for her egregious abuse of the precious right of Free Speech. In our humble opinion, she is criminally liable for the deaths of the victims of Jared Lee Loughner in Tucson on January 9, 2011, and for the attempted murder of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.

    Sarah Palin is a public figure. As such she does not have the same recourse in libel action as would a private individual unless she can prove that any defamatory statements against or about her were motivated by actual malice, which is almost impossible to establish.

    "Answer in court"? These are some especially stupid liberals, USArmyRetired. There is no theory of criminal liability that could possibly be stretched that far. BTW, it is not slander (which is spoken) or libel. To be such, it would need to be a statement of fact, spoken with actual malice or malicious disregard for the truth, and cause Palin an economic loss.

    I wouldn't get heatburn. This is so out-there, even I wouldn't want to join that dogpile.

    My dear boy, this is evidence.

    The location in Arizona of Congresswoman Giffords, as with the other targets, is shown on the map by a circle and the crosshairs of a rifle. The map in question is shown on many sites on the Internet. You can find it at Sarah Palin's PAC Puts Gun Sights On Democrats She's Targeting In 2010. It has been discussed by major media including the NEW YORK TIMES and the WASHINGTON POST.

    The website Sarah Palin's Official PAC | SarahPAC - Sarah Palin's Official PAC posted the following language in the form of a classified advertisement:

    "Sat 6/12/10. 10 a.m. Get on Target for Victory in November. Help Remove Gabrielle Giffords from office Shoot a fully automatic M16 with Jesse Kelly." The identification of an actual weapon to be used is a clear suggestion. (Giffords Opponent, Jesse Kelly, Held June Event to 'Shoot a Fully Automatic M16' to 'Get on Target' and 'Remove Gabrielle Giffords,)

    There is a reason why that particular site is referred to as DUmb. The members make rocks look intelligent.

    I'm not convinced they'd pass a DNA test to confirm they're human.

    I am talking about a board member that I quoted from YOUR SIDE of the aisle claiming there is evidence Sarah Palin was somehow responsible for the shootings in Arizona.
