Hollywood ‘Comedian’ Calls for Assassination of Sarah Palin


Jeff Poor at the Daily Caller has a disturbing story this week. It’s all about a so-called Hollywood comedian telling a talk show audience that he would assassinate Sarah Palin were she to become President of the United States. He wasn’t being “funny” either, was he? After all, those Hollywierders that blamed the right for a “culture of violent rhetoric” said this sort of talk was a “serious” threat to the country. Right?

Christopher Titus appeared on the Adam Corolla show when a discussion of Palin was started. Here was the “humor” he offered:

“You know what man? I am going to literally — if she gets elected president, I am going to hang out on the grassy knoll all the time, just loaded and ready — because you know what? It’s for my country. It’s for my country. If I got to sacrifice myself, it’s for my country.”

Now, let’s harken back to 2009 when the left went wild over the “cross hairs” graphic that Palin used on her website to target at risk Democrats during the then upcoming 2010 midterm elections. The far left website Gawker , for instance, was ready to bring Palin up on charges for using the common symbol on a campaign map. And that was just an image on a campaign website! They weren’t the only ones, either. The charge was everywhere.

In fact, the left spent the whole of the spring and summer of 2010 attacking every vestige of the right for it’s “inciting violence” and its “violent rhetoric.” It was the left’s talking point du jour last year that any rhetoric that evoked even the slightest possible allusion to violence was somehow destroying our political discourse. It was proof, the left said, of the evil, base nature of conservatives and Republicans.

Oh, the humanities.

So, where are the same nattering nabobs of negativity to scold this purported comic when he said that he’d assassinate a President Sarah Palin?

Crickets. Hypocritical crickets.
