Breitbart has an exclusive posted where Governor Palin responds to Wednesday’s tragic shooting which led to the injury of Rep. Steve Scalise.
She states graciously:
“Prayers for healing are raised for all victims of today’s horrific violence, while we with lift up thankfulness that lives were not lost,” Palin told Breitbart News. “While justice is now sought upon the capture of the deranged attacker, an additional prayer must be for no acceptance of a rush to destroy anyone else in this horrible incident. Those seeking political advantage reacted so recklessly and irresponsibly the last time a member of Congress was brutally attacked, as media inexplicably played a knee-jerk blame game assuming that attacker’s motives. Today’s shooter appears to be a Bernie Sanders supporter and campaign volunteer. But Bernie Sanders is not to blame.
Far too many sat idly by while Governor Palin was inaccurately attacked and blamed for the 2011 shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ). The rhetoric was capitalized on by politicians and media at the time…even by the same man who Governor Palin came out in defense of today, Bernie Sanders who used the 2011 tragedy to raise money by attacking Governor Palin and “Republican reactionaries.”
With or without a title, Governor Palin continues to set the example of behavior which continues to lack among those in the media.
