    They were targeting a specific person for defeat in a recall election. If someone can prove that it was printed since Tuesday, that's different. If it was printed before Tuesday, in context it's targeting Walker to be defeated.

    When you accompany that image with the death threats made against Scott Walker, that is highly inappropriate and is an implied threat of violence... While the targeting of a congressional district for an election, not accompanied by any threats of violence, does not in any way, shape, or form imply violent intent.
    When you accompany the image from Palin's site with the actual attempt on Gabrielle Giffords' life....it seems pretty violent in retrospect.

    Again, I think that piece of paper pictured came before Tuesday. Which would make it targeting Walker for defeat on Tuesday. It doesn't say "Kill Walker" it says "Repeal Walker."

    It's hilarious to watch you and other libs abandon common sense to serve your political gods.
    Ditto for cons. Oh wait, I forgot that you're a dispassionate objective observer

    So we wait until someone shoots Walker like they did with Giffords?

    If someone legitimately threatens the life of a Governor or the President, it's relatively simple to trace who those accounts belong to and charge them. Whether the threat is on the internet or live in person, it's still a threat and should be taken seriously. Hell, that could create a lot of jobs. Were this a liberal being threatened via twitter, I'm 99% positive NBC, CBS and the rest would be running the story over and over. Sure - the bias again. Still there. Regardless, people need to start taking responsibility for their idiocy. Just because it's on the internet does not excuse it.

    Well it is honestly as bad if not worse. First off she is a politician not a slightly angered and/or even radical citizen. judging from this link here " Sarah Palin's "Crosshairs" Ad is Focus of Gabrielle Giffords Debate - ABC News " This came to seen as a death threat because this also happened in the wake of the attempted assassination of Gabrielle Giffords whose district was on this crosshairs map.

    Not only that but Sarah Palin had made comments such as "Its time to make a stand", "Don't retreat. RELOAD" prior to the event.

    Athough the Article puts him slightly with the left because of his mentioning of the book communism manifesto on his Myspace it fails to mention he also liked such political books as Animal Farm, Fahrenheit 451, Mein Kampf, and the Republic. Does this make him a Nazi because he liked Mein Kampf? I didn't think so.

    Larger factors are Arizona's conservative gun laws and Loughner's mental instability, which would not be suprising if it was influenced by Sarah Palin's recently introduced crosshairs map.

    I'm not the one who is pretending that targeting a congressional district on a map for an upcoming election is "violent", nor am I the one who is pretending there isn't a difference that target, and one from a rifle scope targeting the head of an actual human being.
