Sarah Palin Responds to Gabrielle Giffords Tragedy; Decries "Mindless Finger Pointing"

by at . Comments

In a new video, Sarah Palin has decried the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords, along with the finger-pointing she believes has made her a scapegoat of sorts.

Slamming critics who say she bears blame, she says "We must reject the idea that [when] a law is broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker."

Check out her full video response here and comment below:

Sarah drew criticism after it was discovered that Rep. Giffords was targeted in Palin's crosshairs map of GOP takeover opportunities released last fall.

Palin says media figures "manufacture a blood libel that serves only to incite the very hatred and violence they purport to condemn. That is reprehensible."

Pointing fingers at finger-pointing, the former Governor adds: "We are better than the mindless finger pointing we endured in the wake of the tragedy."

What do you think? Is Sarah Palin partly to blame?

Sarah Palin Quotes

What I've had to do, though, is in the middle of the night, put down the Blackberries and pick up the breast pump. Do a couple of things different and still get it all done.

Sarah Palin

I am thankful to be married to a man who loves being a dad as much as I love being a mom so he is my strength. And practically speaking, we have a great network of help with lots of grandparents and aunties and uncles all around us. We have a lot of help.
