The expression ‘blood libel’ refers to accusations that Jews kill Christian children in order to use their blood in rituals. That kind of accusation was very popular in Europe during the Middle Ages. Obviously, it had no basis whatsoever. The weirdest thing in this case, is that Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords who has been targetted in the recent shooting in Tucson, Arizona, is Jewish. That leaves a strange feeling. On her facebook page, Palin declares: « Journalists and pundits should not manufacture a blood libel that serves only to incite the very hatred and violence they purport to condemn ». O.K. we agree…but I still think it smells bad.
Dave Emory, the eminent specialist on fascism studies, made a little research on Sarah Palin that he presented on his radio show, For the Record. In this show, he subtantiates her links to the umh…uhm…KKK and other right-wing organizations and the fascist milieu in general. Be sure to check that information before you make your mind.
