Sarah Palin seems to be willingly and happily associating herself with this lunatic fringe and using specific wording as a call to arms, both literally and figuratively, to take action against those with whom they disagree.
On her twitter page, you can see the call to "Reload".........
Next on her facebook page you have her using gunsights to pinpoint the locations she wants targeted....
This isn't "accidental" language, but instead it is deliberate and incendiary language used to ignite passions and inflame her followers, spurring them into action.
Now take the close association of Sarah Palin not just with the Tea-Party activists who have been shown to use hateful rhetoric in order to get their point across, as is evidenced by the signs seen at the Tea-Party Rallies but with her ties to the AIP, which we will go into later, she is adept at creating division and encouraging action against the government.
These are just a few examples of the Tea Party protest signs. The problem is that all should be considered threats, especially in light of the incidents that are taking place now. When their votes don't get them what they want, they are now going to use the threat of violence to promote their agenda. That is nothing short of Domestic Terrorism.
Now Sarah Palin supporters are no different, and in fact are inline with these "teabaggers". In fact, her own website, Conservatives for Palin has members who have been vocal about their support for the Tea Party, and one member in particular proudly proclaims his violent tendancy.
I know many will say that Sarah cannot be held responsible for what her followers do or say, but her facebook and twitter postings have negated that argument 100%. When you call for people to "Reload" and use gun sights for targeting people, you are in fact inciting that violent behavior and encouraging the lunatic fringe into action.
This was found at the AARP website:
This is really distressing, but we've witnessed it being inflamed before our very eyes by the new extremist element of the GOP. We've seen the ugly posters at Tea Party events, GOP leaders and lawmakers inciting protesters, even tweeting about guns and rising up against the other side and President Barack HUSSEIN Obam a and filing frivolous lawsuits about his citizenship.
John Avlon says this new Harris poll is scary, and that’s probably an understatement. Bad craziness has taken over the right to an appalling degree.
Obama Derangement Syndrome—pathological hatred of the president posing as patriotism—has infected the Republican Party. Here’s new data to prove it:
- 67 percent of Republicans (and 40 percent of Americans overall) believe that Obama is a socialist.
- 57 percent of Republicans (32 percent overall) believe that Obama is a Muslim
- 45 percent of Republicans (25 percent overall) agree with the Birthers in their belief that Obama was “not born in the United States and so is not eligible to be president”
- 38 percent of Republicans (20 percent overall) say that Obama is “doing many of the things that Hitler did”
- Scariest of all, 24 percent of Republicans (14 percent overall) say that Obama “may be the Antichrist.”
These numbers demonstrates the cost of the campaign of fear and hate that has been pumped up in the service of hyper-partisanship over the past 15 months.
We are playing with dynamite by demonizing our president and dividing the United States in the process. What might be good for ratings is bad for the country
Sarah Palin is dividing this country with her talk of "Rill Americans" and "True Patriots". She is sending the messege that if you aren't in agreement with her and her ilk, then somehow you are not a "Rill American".
Quite a bit of her hateful rhetoric stems, I believe, from her failure to get over losing the election in 2008 which is evidenced by her behavior towards our President. She gives clues to this, by her calling President Obama inexperienced, when she herself has quit every major job she has ever had, including the Governorship of Alaska midway through her first term. Also it should be noted that in her latest facebook screed, she comments on the election once again by saying the following
We’re paying particular attention to those House members who voted in favor of Obamacare and represent districts that Senator John McCain and I carried during the 2008 election.

You can see for yourself what the AIP has to say about Sarah(start at the 6:00 mark):
Alaskan Independence Party chairwoman Lynette Clark talks about why she doesn't identify herself as an American, and about her kindred spirit Sarah Palin.
Last October, at a gathering of various anti-U.S. groups in Chattanooga, Tenn., called the Secessionist Convention, Clark's husband, Dexter, expressed hope that Palin's political rise was a positive sign for their independence movement. "Our current governor, who I mentioned at the last conference, the one we were hoping would get elected, Sarah Palin, did get elected," Dexter, a homespun-looking man in jeans and suspenders and a ZZ Top beard, told the assembly of secessionists. "There's a joke -- she's a pretty good-lookin' gal -- there's a joke around, that we're the coldest state with the hottest governor. And there's a lot of talk about her moving up. She was an AIP member, before she got the job as the mayor of a small town. That was a nonpartisan job. But to get along to go along, she eventually joined the Republican Party, where she had all kinds of problems with their ethics ... And she's pretty well sympathetic, because of her former membership."Freedom Fighter
So clearly the AIP members consider her a kindred spirit.
Then we have...........
Meet Sarah Palin's radical right-wing palsSarah's Extremist Friends
During the Presidential election Sarah made a point of saying to everyone and anyone who would listen that then Senator Obama "pals around with terrorists" and then defended her statements by saying:
the Democratic presidential nominee's association with a 1960s radical is an issue that is "fair to talk about."
Palin Defends Obama terrorist comment
In the spirit of equality, I think it is fair that we take the time to examine Sarah Palin's ties to these extremists she is encouraging and propagating with the dangerous rhetoric she is spewing forth with, and those ties she has with known extremists.
I think that there is no question that Sarah Palin is a dangerous person who is deliberately trying to instigate a negative and dangerous & potentially deadly reaction out of her followers.
