Sarah Palin has her tit in a wringer because she placed a target symbol on Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) who lies critically wounded in a Tuscon hospital, the victim of a shooting. Any direct connection? Probably not. At first glance the shooter in custody appears to be a bona fide lunatic. This would make the wounding of 20 and killing of 6 more like Columbine and Virginia Tech than anything political.
The authorities are looking for an additional ‘person of interest’ who was spotted on a security video. He might just be a slick off the street who wandered in front of the camera. Or, he could be the ‘handler’ who now lies buried in the desert sands. Or, he could be another lunatic running for his life. We don’t know.
What we DO know is that Sarah Palin placed a target symbol on the now wounded Congresswoman. Why? I wouldn’t place a target symbol on anybody unless I intended to do the dirty deed. And I wouldn’t do it in public. That’s the province of underground paramilitaries. That is, if we’re talking about serious people.
But there’s something less than serious about the whole Palin operation. They’re trying to use Old West symbolism for good old fashioned but decidedly 21st Century money-making. Establishing a certain persona is part of the act.
But is it real? Hell no! Kurt Nimmo of Infowars.com said it best:
“Sarah Palin is not an anti-government radical–she is part of the establishment Republican party . . .”
And we might add that Rep. Giffords is an Eastablishment Democrat. closer to the likes of Joe Lieberman than, say, Dennis Kucinich.
So Sarah Palin using target symbolism is unserious and careless. Just part of the all-around escalation of bullshit in the country.
Kurt Nimmo goes on:
“Sarah Palin is obviously a creation of the establishment. She was appointed the unofficial leader of the Tea Party movement after a large part of it was craftily transformed by operatives into a harmless cheerleading section for the Republican party. Palin’s handlers made sure she publicly kissed the ring of top level Rockefeller minion and notorious unapprehended war criminal Henry Kissinger.
“The Tea Party movement originally established by Libertarians and Ron Paul and subsequently co-opted and brought trance-like into the Republican party hive is not a threat to the establishment.
“The real Tea Party not co-opted by Republicans is the obvious target of what may yet turn out to be another staged event. Sarah Palin is the television reality show queen and propped up figurehead of an orchestrated movement funded in part by the CIA operative Richard Mellon Scaife. The CIA has perfected the art of undermining and destroying indigenous political movements in opposition to the ruling elite and their power structures and institutions.”
I would add that what the CIA does abroad they also do here at home.
