While defending people's first Amendment right to free speech she attacked that very free speech that has landed her in hot water.
However her choice of a famously anti Semitic reference "Blood Libel" to describe people who criticized her gung ho lock and load gun rhetoric she eclipsed all previous Palinisms.
Some like Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Democrat of Florida, who is a close friend of Ms. Giffords, issued a statement condemning her use of the phrase “blood libel.” saying
“Palin’s comments either show a complete ignorance of history, or blatant anti-Semitism,” said Jonathan Beeton, Ms. Wasserman Shultz’s spokesman. “Either way, it shows an appalling lack of sensitivity given Representative Giffords’s faith and the events of the past week.”
However as any idiot even amongst Palin's speech writers could have read on the page Wikipedia:Blood Libel what the phrase means we can only assume that Buck Shot Sarah meant to insult Jews and one in particular Congresswoman Giffords . However this is normal behavior for her and her Christotaliban followers. The blood in their eyes is real , the fundamentalist hatred in their hearts is real, their intention to cause violence is real.

Blood libel (also blood accusation) refers to a false accusation or claim that religious minorities, in European contexts almost always Jews, murder children to use their blood in certain aspects of their religious rituals and holidays. Historically, these claims have–alongside those of well poisoning and host desecration–been a major theme in European persecution of Jews.The libels typically allege that Jews require human blood for the baking of matzos for Passover. The accusations often assert that the blood of Christian children is especially coveted, and historically blood libel claims have often been made to account for otherwise unexplained deaths of children
Palin's staffers have now given her use of the phrase its own Wikipedia page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blood_libel_%28U.S._political_term%29
in an effort to diffuse her latest disgusting own goal I imagine the discussion page will heat up tonight as Wikipedia editors ask for the page to be deleted , the page was started by a Wikipedia user called KeepSouth whose first wikipedia edits were to remove info about a Wasilla "male model and Palin's daughter's boyfriend
Yes that is right Levi Johnston father of Palin's grandson by her daughter Bristol , since then KeepSouth has been running a pro Palin campaign on Wikipedia.
