"Blood libel obviously means being falsely accused, or having blood on your hands," Palin said.Except it also means using that false accusation to justify violence against an entire people. And it has a deep meaning in the Jewish community that Palin seems to completely disrespect.
But my favorite part is when she says that it is ridiculous to blame the actions of this guy on conservatives, but quite proper to blame him on liberals. Just as she seems to think that it is ridiculous to blame her or any other conservative for some extremist, but thinks that it is justified blaming all Muslims for the actions of a few radicals.
Let's face it. Not only is Sarah a media whore, but she is not a deep thinker. That shouldn't surprise us by this point. We have seen her lack of curiosity or willingness to educate herself. I think that Leighton is correct in that her only real goal is to keep her base happy and willing to buy her "books." BTW, I have a question pending with an old friend from my BSU days about the former half-time governor. He says he likes her work ethic, and her Christian values. I have not pointed out that her work ethic included quitting a job halfway through, but have asked him for any example of her living out actual Christian values. Has she ever treated an adversary with anything other than hatred and disrespect? Has she ever demonstrated compassion and grace to anyone other than her friends and supporters?
I will let you know the answer.
