Once again, the British media does the work that the American MSM refuses to do
The release of 24,000 pages of Sarah Palin’s emails shows that she received a barrage of abusive emails including death threats in the run up to the 2008 presidential race.
One message sent by someone in Juneau, Alaska on Sept 17, 2008 said the governor should be “shot from one of the planes that shoot the very wolves that you ordered.”
Five days earlier an email landed in her in-box saying she “must be killed.”
It said: “She doesn’t belong to the NRA to support the right of each citizen to have weapons in an aim of self-defence, but just to support the right of every southern white citizen to shoot all non-white people legally! Sarah Palin MUST BE KILLED!”
Another emailed death threat in the same month, while Mrs Palin was on the campaign trail as John McCain’s vice-presidential running mate, came from Antwerp, Belgium.
It said Mrs Palin should be shot and that “only on that moment justice will be accomplished.”
So, basically, what we learned from the whole email affair that Palin was a hard working governor, a thoughtful mother, and that the political Left was already unhinged over her serving.
But, just because I know you’re wondering
News outlets including CNN and the Anchorage Daily News asked for Palin’s emails to be released in 2008, after Palin became the surprise running-mate of Republican presidential candidate John McCain.
At the time officials said they could not be released because of the antiquated electronic databases they were stored on, complicated by the fact that Palin commonly used a Yahoo account to conduct state business.
So, CNN wanted those emails, but, didn’t push for any of Obama’s records? I’m shocked, shocked I tell you!
