You can read the full written transcript of Palin's statement on her Facebook page. On collective guilt:
President Reagan said, “We must reject the idea that every time a law’s broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.” Acts of monstrous criminality stand on their own. They begin and end with the criminals who commit them, not collectively with all the citizens of a state, not with those who listen to talk radio, not with maps of swing districts used by both sides of the aisle, not with law-abiding citizens who respectfully exercise their First Amendment rights at campaign rallies, not with those who proudly voted in the last election.
Absolutely correct. The left has perfected the tactic of guilt by association, which has permeated our criminal code to a certain extent. For example, we now see bar owners held criminally and civilly liable for the DUIs of their customers under the guise of "dram shop laws". It is not fair or possible to ask people to be clairvoyant and anticipate in advance the consequences of free speech. The bogus concept of "hate speech" was invented by the left to chill free speech on the part of the right. And the left never holds itself accountable to the same standards that they seek to impose upon the right.
On "blood libel":
Vigorous and spirited public debates during elections are among our most cherished traditions. And after the election, we shake hands and get back to work, and often both sides find common ground back in D.C. and elsewhere. If you don’t like a person’s vision for the country, you’re free to debate that vision. If you don’t like their ideas, you’re free to propose better ideas. But, especially within hours of a tragedy unfolding, journalists and pundits should not manufacture a blood libel that serves only to incite the very hatred and violence they purport to condemn. That is reprehensible.
The concept of "blood libel" has traditionally been owned by Jewish lobbies to describe the doctrine that Jews allegedly used the blood of Gentile children as an ingredient in making matzo. It has been authoritatively "refudiated".
However, one observant Jew agrees that the campaign against Sarah Palin does include "blood libel". Sheya writes on Conservatives4Palin: "The term blood libel wasn’t invented to define what happened to the Jews; it’s just that what happened to Jews were blood libels, and this term fits perfectly to what happened to Governor Palin. The left and the media attacking Governor Palin are outraged at her for her using the term. Of course, why wouldn’t they be? The chain of events is following the direction blood libels always follow, and they are just mad that they are being called out".
By the way, one person bitches on The Atlantic about how there is "no free speech" on Palin's Facebook page. Perhaps this person should visit Daily Kos -- there's even less free speech there. Conservatives are routinely banned. Once again, the pot's calling the kettle black.
