Washington Posts Dana Milbank Repeats Discredited Story Of Palin Rally"Kill Him" Shout In Romney Attack.






Here is the leftist Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank this May 9th;


"Almost four years ago, I was watching Sarah Palin rile up a Clearwater, Fla., crowd with anti-Obama broadsides when a spectator let loose a bloodcurdling cry of “kill him!”  Here AT THIS LINK is his original 2008 report.


And below is the report from the Secret service about the incident. They could not corroborate the "bloodcurdling cry" or the subsequent similar Pennsylvania hatchet job. Perhaps they forgot to interview Milbank who seems to have been the only person who heard the words he claims.


Now one thing is clear,or rather two things. Firstly, the Washington Post in this article entitled "Mitt Romney won't stand up to his own party" are trying to link what an audience member may or may not have said to Romney with the left-wing canard they drummed up against Palin in 2008.


Secondly the left will stop at nothing to discredit their opposition, and that Palin has been, and continues to be the victim of the worst media hatchet jobs of any politician in living memory. 


With all that her influence remains unabated as Mr. Lugar just found to his cost. The more the leftist media throws the filth at her the more the public will see them for what they are and the stronger she gets.


Thus either the Secret service or Dana Milbank are liars, truth distorter's and muck spreaders. One of these reports is wrong-you be the judge which one. Here is the
Associated Press report confirming no such shout was made


Here is a post on Milbank's original Florida claim followed by a report discrediting another leftist report on a similar 'incident" in 2008 in Scranton



"The Smear"
Sarah Incited 'Kill Him' in Clearwater Florida Rally


This is where it all started 

In Dana Milbank's October 7, 2008 Washington Post Article [1], Keith Olbermann sidekick Dana Milbank "reported":

Palin's routine attacks on the media have begun to spill into ugliness. In Clearwater, arriving reporters were greeted with shouts and taunts by the crowd of about 3,000. Palin then went on to blame Katie Couric's questions for her "less-than-successful interview with kinda mainstream media." At that, Palin supporters turned on reporters in the press area, waving thunder sticks and shouting abuse. Others hurled obscenities at a camera crew. One Palin supporter shouted a racial epithet at an African American sound man for a network and told him, "Sit down, boy."

Palin, speaking to a sea of "Palin Power" and "Sarahcuda" T-shirts, tried to link Obama to the 1960s Weather Underground. "One of his earliest supporters is a man named Bill Ayers," she said. ("Boooo!" said the crowd.) "And, according to the New York Times, he was a domestic terrorist and part of a group that, quote, 'launched a campaign of bombings that would target the Pentagon and our U.S. Capitol,' " she continued. ("Boooo!" the crowd repeated.)

"Kill him!" proposed one man in the audience.

The Truth


The Secret Service Investigated: they listened to the tapes and someone shouted "Tell Him".

The Secret Service Investigated: they listened to the tapes and someone shouted "Tell Him" as Palin was talking about William Ayers.[2] 

Last week, The Washington Post reported a similar incident during a Palin rally in Clearwater, Fla. The Secret Service investigated that allegation and found no indication that "kill him" was ever said, or if it was said, that the remark was directed at Obama. 

Listening to tapes of that rally, the Secret Service heard "tell him" or "tell them," but agents never heard "kill him," Secret Service spokesman Eric Zahren told The Associated Press on Wednesday [October 15, 2008]

The Times-Leader reports:

The agent in charge of the Secret Service field office in Scranton said allegations that someone yelled “kill him” when presidential hopeful Barack Obama’s name was mentioned during Tuesday’s Sarah Palin rally are unfounded.
The Scranton Times-Tribune first reported the alleged incident on its Web site Tuesday and then again in its print edition Wednesday. The first story, written by reporter David Singleton, appeared with allegations that while congressional candidate Chris Hackett was addressing the crowd and mentioned Oabama’s name a man in the audience shouted “kill him.”
News organizations including ABC, The Associated Press, The Washington Monthly and MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann reported the claim, with most attributing the allegations to the Times-Tribune story.
Agent Bill Slavoski said he was in the audience, along with an undisclosed number of additional secret service agents and other law enforcement officers and not one heard the comment.
“I was baffled,” he said after reading the report in Wednesday’s Times-Tribune.
He said the agency conducted an investigation Wednesday, after seeing the story, and could not find one person to corroborate the allegation other than Singleton.
Slavoski said more than 20 non-security agents were interviewed Wednesday, from news media to ordinary citizens in attendance at the rally for the Republican vice presidential candidate held at the Riverfront Sports Complex. He said Singleton was the only one to say he heard someone yell “kill him.”
“We have yet to find someone to back up the story,” Slavoski said. “We had people all over and we have yet to find anyone who said they heard it
