“We are on Sarah Palin's targeted list. The way that she has it depicted has the crosshairs of the gunsight over our district. When people do that, they have got to realize there are consequences to that action.”
absurd claim that the crosshairs were "never ever, ever intended to be gun sights. It was simply crosshairs like you'd see on maps." The radio interviewer added helpfully they could, in fact, be seen as "surveyor's symbols." Mansour has to be incredibly disingenous if "it never occurred to us that anybody would consider it violent."
Oh really? Then how to explain these tweets from your boss, Ms. Mansour? It does not matter how many tweets you end up deleting; the internet "trail" once posted cannot be "shredded" like all copies of a paper trail.
Here Palin urges her followers, using GUN terminology to "RELOAD"— that is exactly what Jared Lee Loughner was trying to do but for a brave woman who prevented him from reloading. Otherwise the death count would have been higher.
And in this tweet Sarah Palin refers to her "BULLSEYE" icon "used 2 target ... incumbent seats." Palin's defenders are actually saying on her Facebook page that the "TARGET" was the "incumbent seats." Do you really think a demented gun-toting assassin will make such subtle distinctions, Ms. Mansour?:
