I tend to agree with
I'm not a big Palin fan.
But I can't stand the people who hate her:
"It got me thinking about why certain politicians, even if they espouse views which are not necessarily all that outrageous or objectionable, provoke feelings of such hatred in some quarters.
There is .. something quite useful about Sarah Palin in this regard.
Although I do not agree with all her views, at least as far as I know what they are,
I usually find that the sort of people who say they hate or despise her are nobs of the first rank.
So it is a sort of useful marker: if I find myself talking to someone and her name comes up and the reaction is as described, I can usually pigeonhole that person as someone to be avoided."
Twitter death threats - Part 1 (not collected by me)
Twitter users wish death on Sarah Palin after the Tucson shooting, Jan 2011.
Of course there is no evidence that the shooter was interested in Sarah Palin.
And Sarah Palin - unlike these scum - has never called for political violence.
Also, if you are not familiar with Twitter syntax,
when you see @someuser
in the body of a tweet (not the header),
is not the author of the tweet,
but rather someone to whom the tweet was addressed (perhaps against their will).
For example, do not blame
She should also apologise for getting the video pulled.
Before It's News
points out other Twitter users who do not apologise,
like Stephen Patten.
Adam Fine does not apologise.
complains about the video:
"It really is funny yet pathetic that someone went through all the trouble
to gather so many posts about wishing for palin's death".
That's not what's funny and pathetic here, Adam.
complains that Palin never gets any death threats.
I was interested in whether the above compilation was repeatable. It is.
You can search Twitter at any time
and you will find fresh death threats.
Here's a new search, turning up a variety of people who advocate violence, death and rape against Sarah Palin.
Why? Who knows.
None of them seem to use logic.
But I agree with
"These tweets prove there's no shortage of 'Jared Loughners' out there."
Blocked on Twitter by the regressive left and Islamists:
I love debate.
I love ideas.
But the Western left
and their friends the Islamic right
do not return the favour.
Their response to opposing ideas, whether expressed politely or robustly, is often to block.

Twitter is broken, 2016 to 2022:
I am on Twitter at
Twitter was a great place for debate before 2016.
You could meet everyone in the world, and argue about ideas.
Starting in 2016,
Twitter became increasingly broken.
It became full of reporting and bans and censorship.
In 2019, Twitter even started
for no reason that was ever explained, or could be appealed.
By 2022, everyone was looking for a better place to debate.
Twitter is saved, 2022:
bought Twitter and started to end the censorship.
It looks great so far.
Twitter seems to be saved.
