Liberaland: Sarah Palin Suddenly Thinks Ramped Up Rhetoric Can Lead To Violence; Shoe, Meet Other Foot


March 12, 2011- Sarah Palin, who has consistently defended her own violent rhetoric and imagery, suddenly believes that the words of “union thugs” will lead to people getting hurt.

During an appearance Thursday night on Sean Hannity’s TV show, Sarah Palin had a warning about the protests going on against the bill just signed by Gov. Scott Walker’s (R-WI) to curtail public employee unions — saying that unions should “tone down the rhetoric” against the bill, because it will result in people getting hurt…

“Well, these union bosses that are acting like thugs, as they are leading some of their good union members down a road that will ultimately result in, unfortunately, somebody getting hurt,” Palin said, “if you believe the death threats that are being received by those who just happen to support amending some collective bargaining privileges of state unions. Well, it is these unions bosses’ responsibility to turn down the rhetoric and start getting truth out there, so that nobody gets hurt.”

As TPM notes, Palin’s position on the effects of extreme rhetoric was quite different when she was in defense mode because of her own actions.
