The vicious Palin tweets

A couple of days ago, I posted a YouTube video made up entirely of tweets from Palin haters.  It was a classic “unclear on the concept” thing, as the tweeters, in response to their perception that Palin’s “hate speech” caused the Tucson shooting, tried to top each other with vivid and obscene fantasies about Palin’s torture, death and dismemberment.

YouTube has removed that video.  I don’t know if it was a principled stand against violent threats against a politician, or a craven attempt to hide Lefty violence.  

Whatever.  I think people need to see the ugliness emanating from the Left.  The video is still on Vimeo, so I’m reposting it here.

    From Legal Insurrection blog:
    Now YouTube is threatening to pull the video because one of the people who sent a tweet has complained that the video violates her privacy.………. There are two principles at issue.  First, there is no expectation of privacy as to death wishes.  Second, there is no expectation of privacy on Twitter. Sorry lady, you’ll have to live with the consequences of your Tweet, because even if YouTube takes down the video, we all have screen shots. Which brings me to a third principle.  You can’t take it back on the internet.


    She has learned something the hard way.

    Announcing that something is something does not make it so.
     
    So, saying that something is hate speech does not mean it is hate speech.
     
    Besides, what IS hate speech, anyway? I have looked in vain in my copy of the Federalist Haters, and I can’t find it.

    Hate speech is counter-revolutionary talk that attempts to lessen the influence of Socialist and Communist revolutions.

    Bill Smith #3,
    Besides, what IS hate speech, anyway? I have looked in vain in my copy of the Federalist Haters, and I can’t find it.

    The “Federalist Haters “ was published in book form in 1790 by Elbridge Gerry and Governour Morris of New York, assembling their arguments from newspaper editorials against Thomas Paine’s and Samuel Adam’s calls to “run those damn Tory sympathizers to rowboats to carry themselves back to England, where they belong, or hang them from the nearest tree, whichever is more convenient.”   After the Federalists rightly pointed out, in a coordinated tavern-hall campaign across many States, that the anti-Federalists were putting crosshair targets on districts of those who believed a Bill of Rights was not a necessary addition to the Constitution, the book “Federalist Haters” fell into disfavor.

    Copies were known to exist as late as 1865.  A civil war letter from a wife to her husband on the front lines (sadly unanswered) quoted from the book, asking some questions of relevance concerning the right of States to secede from the Union.

    Unfortunately Elbridge Gerry and Governour Morris printed their book via the latest environmentally friendly processes, relying on acid-free tub washes to create the pages, and so copies of the book decayed rapidly, especially in humid climes.  A copy was recently offered up on E-Bay, for $123,456, or Best Offer, but that was later found to be a fraud due to its of the “Courier-New” typeface, and watermarks on some pages appearing to say “IBM”.

    Dan Rather claimed the use of the Courier New typeface was not an indicator of fraud.  “Is not, is not, is not, you poopie scoopie!” he was heard to exclaim.
