Using the term Blood Libel was correct of Palin
Posted by avideditor on January 13, 2011
I think there is no better term for pointing out you where falsely accused. Using the term makes it better know the history of absurd false claims the jews went through because of aniti semites in the past. I think the left is just pissed off because their allies the Jihadis are still making similar ridiculous claims.
Origins: Classic anti-Semitic canard that Jews use Christian blood to make Passover matzo. Since Passover and Easter are close to each other on the calendar, the blood libel was a big favorite among Christian clergy who repeated it in sermons during Easter mass in order to incite their flock to pogrom against Jews on their way out of church.
Today: Still crazy after all these years, but has come to have a broader meaning. A false accusation that someone’s speech, conduct, politics, analogies, opinions, tone of voice, lipstick – and now graphics – has led to the shedding of blood by a totally zoned out third party who couldn’t tell a Republican from a hot dog bun. Big favorite among desperate liberals and the Left who repeat the nonsense in sermons in the New York Times and on MSNBC in order to incite their dwindling flocks to pump up flagging circulation, credibility, influence and ratings.
I would like to add that when I first heard Palin use the phrase “Blood Libel” I cringed a bit. But upon further reflection I think Palin outsmarted the left.
Her use of the phrase was spot on.
The irrational and false claims used against her in order to damage her are very similar to what Christians did to Jews with their idiotic false claims.
The very fact that they want to continue to bury this woman for using a phrase justifies the use of the phrase.
They are sick people who are using blood libel to have her killed.
You want further proof?
This fomenting by the left to create hatred for the way Palin breathes was perfectly illustrated by the horse-toothed Twitter jackass Lauren B., who said she wished it was Palin who was shot.
Who is getting this shithead to think this way? It certainly isn’t anything Palin is saying or doing that would make this idiot feel this way on her own. Is it? That would mean the left would just like to shoot anyone that is a conservative. I don’t think that is the case.
It’s the left whipping these lemmings into a froth.
