Glenn Beck to Sarah Palin: An ‘attempt on you could bring the Republic down’

In the wake of Saturday’s Tucson, Ariz., shooting that left Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in critical condition, six dead and more than a dozen injured, former Alaska gov. Sarah Palin reached out to Fox’s Glenn Beck via e-mail.

“Sarah, as you know, peace is always the answer. I know you are felling the same heat, if not much more on this,” Beck wrote Palin in an e-mail, which he read on-air during his radio program Monday.

“I want you to know you have my full support,” Beck told Palin. “You are always in my thoughts and prayers.”

Concerned for her safety,  Beck urged Palin to protect herself and invest in more security because an “attempt on you could bring the Republic down.”

“There are nutjobs on all sides,” Beck said. “Tomorrow I am issuing a challenge to reject all violence. If people really believe Americans can become some version of al Qaeda, I will not stand in the shadows as too many overseas did after 9/11. Terror is terror. I don’t care if it’s for Allah or for your party, you are not a freedom fighter, but a killer. There is a difference between a hard-fought political battle and violence … It’s time for politics to stop and sanity to begin.”

Palin responded, “I hate violence. I hate war. Our children will not have peace if politicos just capitalize on this to succeed in portraying anyone as inciting terror and violence. Thanks for all you do to send the message of truth and love and God as the answer.”

Beck went on to say a few brief words about Giffords, who he had talked about on his show once before.

“I used her as an example of someone with some political courage,” Beck said.

Since Saturday’s massacre, both Beck and Palin have been criticized by dozens of pundits and bloggers. Palin has been accused of inspiring the incident for creating a map during elections targeting districts of several liberal lawmakers, including Giffords’s district, with the cross hairs of a rifle scope and instructing her followers, “Don’t retreat, reload.”

    You Go Sarah.!!!

    Gov. Sarah Palin has shown her enormous Executive leadership skills, her compassion and intelligent and instinctual abilities to talk straight to the heart of the matter, the criminally disturbed mentally ill individual that caused this tragic event, and cut through all of the far left’s liberal lies and twisted and distorted BS, that they love to apply, causing massive social chaos, and civil unrest.
    The radical far left liberal media obamacratic propagandist ministers in the media, will use and apply all the Saul Alinsky tactics and strategies they can, to take advantage of a crisis and turn into a circus for political gain, which is exactly what this is all about.

    They, all the radical far leftist liberal obamacratic hate mongers in the media, will not win, as they have already sown the seeds of their Defeat and Demise, with their poisonous propagandist lies and vitriolic hate filled rhetoric.

    The radical far left Liberal’s campaign to destroy Gov. Palin, goes on, and with a vengeance, along with all of the other Constitutional Conservatives like Rush, Sean, Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reily, Fox News itself, as well as the other Constitutional Conservative Politicians like Michele Bachmann, and Sen. DeMint, They must really be afraid of Gov. Sarah Palin, as well as all the rest of us Conservatives, but to accuse Gov. Sarah Palin, of something, like this deranged mentally ill individual’s criminal shootings and murders of many innocent people, blaming this on Gov. Sarah Palin, or even Rush, or Sean, or Glenn, or Fox News, etc, etc. is so outrageously absurd, it laughable..
    But, try as they might, they will Fail in there attempt, as they have already sown the seeds of the ultimate Defeat, Demise, and Ultimate Failure, as they have shown to the American People, their contempt, arrogance, and utterly repugnant and repulsive side of their far left hate filled vitriolic agenda.

    Conservatives Must Take The Offensive

    Time To Restore America!

    As President Ronald Reagan once said:
    “Democracy and Freedom, must be defended with each generation, for if it is not, it will surely Perish”.!!

    “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”

    First they blame her for well everything 4 days straight,
    then they blame her for her speech and putting herself in the middle, oh and 2 words “blood libel”
    then, par for the course, they threaten, harrass, etc.,Palin
    then they get reprimanded (indirectly) by the healer-in-chief
    and now she has the death threats at unprecedented levels

    Liberals are a laughing stock with their hypocrisy, intolerance and hate.

  • junkmaninohio

    Where was the screaming from the leftists when they made a movie about assassinating President George W. Bush. The Hypocrisy is mind numbing.

      A Godless GOP, this new Party led by Palin, Beck and FoxNews, no longer follows the word of the Lord they so claim to love. Where are the Conservatives that really follow the Lord?

      If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain – James 1:26

      A lying tongue hateth those that are afflicted by it; and a flattering mouth worketh ruin. Proverbs 26:28

      Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles. Proverbs 21:23

      Surly you will not attack the word of God?

        I don’t know who you are talking about. Certainly Beck isn’t your focus. Your comments don’t make much sense.

    Double standards by leftist and the media are good reason americans lost respect for our media, we don’t trust them to be honest anymore, they are onbe sided, they should have been the first to expose the leftist for attacking palin because seh used something dems have always used.

      i do see this incident as something that will cause many americans to lose respect for the media. the hypocritical leftist media is shooting themselves in the foot. the majority of americans will not buy the claim that it’s palin’s fault the shooting occurred, that’s ridiculous. the media is losing credibility and this will help palin big time when she runs.

      He read Hitler.
      Hitler was a man of the right.

      He read the Marx,
      Marx was a man of the left.

      Can we agree this kid was very confused?

        I can definitely agree the kid is confused. Saying he is a nutjob, I do not think is out f line either.

        So your basic premise for the post I agree with.

        But wasn’t Hitler from the National Socialist German Workers party? Wasn’t that a left wing organization?

        Current Neo-Nazi skinheads may be extreme right-wing today, but Hitler was extreme left-wing. The Neo-Nazis have subscribed to Hitlers racial hatred and superiority ramblings from the far right. Todays perversion of Hitlers perverse ideology doesn’t change his original intentions.
