If you stand up in a crowded theater and yell FIRE! and someone is injured in the ensuing rush to leave the theater, invariably you would be held accountable and most likely face some sort of criminal charge.  By the same token, those ranting Tea-Partiers and their supporters like Mama Grizzly Palin, should be held accountable for acts of violence against politicians targeted by their reckless rhetoric. The recent shooting of Senator Gabrielle Giffords and 18  others was a deplorable act spurred by, among other things, Sara Palin’s targeting of  Giffords’ congressional district in the crosshairs of a gun on her (Palin’s) Facebook page.  She should face criminal charges for inciting acts of violence,  and Gifford’s family, along with the families of all of the victims, should haul her ass into civil court.  That would send a strong message to these “conservative”-Tea Party- Republican crazies that have come out of the woodwork like cockroaches and have made inflammatory statements with impunity, including the Nevada nut  Sharron Angle, with her ranting about Second Amendment remedies. The mainstream media should be held accountable as well for giving these crazies media coverage. Republican leaders who failed to discourage the ranting rhetoric during the primaries and elections, should also face repercussions…vote their asses out of office! Silence gives consent, and by virtue of their silence, they are just as guilty as the ones who actually pull the triggers. In the real world that I live in, if I were in a car with someone who committed a felony and someone lost their life in the commission of that felony, I would face murder charges right along with the one who actually pulled the trigger….why should it be any different for Palin?

What say you?
