6 lives lost, one child, 2 young people and a number of dedicated citizens: Judge Roll; Green; Giffords aide Gabe Zimmerman, 30; Dorothy Morris, 76; Dorwin Stoddard, 76; and Phyllis Schneck, 79. A little 9 year old girl was ironically born on 9/11 2001. Gabrielle Giffords – the main face of the event of yesterday night shooting is in the hospital with the whole country praying for her recovery.
The magnitude of this tragedy is indescribable. Official mass media is massaging the facts and casualty of the killing while actively trying to hide the Sarah Pailin stupid act that is clearly tied to this tragedy. Internet with thousands of bloggers and international press however have flood the Internet with the story that opened my eyes and continues to open eyes of our nation.
This “Sarah Palin Hit List” blog article has been to date shared 819 times and retweeted over 3600 times. It talks about the fact that back in September Sarah Palin has posted the US map on her Facebook. Map had 20 targets (drawn as physical shooting targets) of locations of avid Democrat figures who voted against the health care bill, one of which was Arizona. The map was accompanied by list of names, one of whom was Gabrielle Giffords. Since then Sarah was quoted with violent expressions using words as “Reload”, “Don’t Retreat”.
This story draws a clear picture in any logical mind – some psycho took a gun and went on to execute Sarah’s mission. It may not be her fault, but agree, we are not in Pakistan. No government official should be calling for violence. People with power to draw attention of millions of people in the country should take responsibility of the consequence. On the contrary, where was FBI and CIA? How a government official can be allowed to sturb violence and disturb peace?
Internet is flooded with this story. Yahoo has deleted a number of discussions on this topic in the morning. Later they posted a factual article covering the tragedy. To date there is over 43,000 comments. Very few of them touch on this story – only making me think that comments are monitored right now. We will await the progression of this and for now, pray for families of 6 lives that are gone and 15 more who are fighting for their lives in the hospital.
