Sarah Palin the former Alaska Gov. has defended her usage of ‘Blood libel’. She told the reporters that she did know the meaning of the phrase and she insists that she has used it in the right context. She used the word blood libel in while getting back to her critics in an interview long time back. This is the first interview she is attending ever since the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. She released a video which explains that she has not termed anyone in a negative way.
“Blood libel obviously means being falsely accused or having blood on their hands” she told in an interview with the Fox news. When she was asked if she really knew what she meant by her words she replied - “I don’t know how the heck they would or wouldn’t know”. “It goes back to the Jewish people being falsely accused,” she said. “A group of people being falsely accused of having blood on their hands”, she added.
Many people accused Palin to have defended herself and made the issue to be about herself. She told the reporters that –“My defense wasn’t self-defense, it was defending those who were falsely accused,” she insisted. “I was puzzled as to why, and before facts were even gathered, why the mainstream media was pointing fingers. When I talk about being up in arms, I’m talking about getting to the voting booth,” she concluded.
Keeping apart her defending her innocence in the issue she has also had some offensive words to share for her liberal critics for trying to silence her. She also remarked the recent Obama speech at Arizona as a pep rally. “Certainly I agree with the idea of being civil… but we should not use an event like that in Arizona to stifle debate,” Palin said. “They can’t make us sit down and shut up. And if they succeeded in doing that our Republic would be destroyed.”
