Like Dr. Tiller, the Kansas abortion doctor who was murdered after being "targeted," these right wing assholes put targets on someone, and that someone winds up shot. What more do we need to know?
Sarah Palin and Giffords' opponent in 2010 targeted her and she got shot. End of story. Watching Palin, and every other Republican asshole who uses targets like this, try to walk it back is just sickening. They incited this violence, and they should apologize and stop doing it.
I once got in a fight with a guy who had a sticker of the Democratic donkey in crosshairs. He said it was a joke. I bet that fucker thinks it's pretty damn funny today, because that's how these assholes roll. They talk about "second amendment remedies" and then they claim to be shocked when someone takes them seriously.
"placed the crosshairs over their geographic districts and included a list of their names below."
