London, UK – A British member of Parliament was shot dead in the street in northern England on Thursday, causing deep shock across Britain and the suspension of campaigning for next week’s referendum on the country’s EU membership. Cox, a 41-year-old lawmaker for the opposition Labor Party, was attacked as she prepared to hold a meeting with constituents in Birstall near Leeds. West Yorkshire Police said a 52-year-old man had been arrested by armed police.
Sarah Palin, former governor of Alaska, commented on the tragedy in her own, provocative style, saying that “it’s no use trying to teach people that pacifism doesn’t work when you have things like these happening almost every day. A woman who had a family, a husband and two young children, was shot dead in the middle of the street like a beggar. Who should we be upset with? The murderer for being insane enough to do something like this or the woman herself, for failing to take precautions to save her own life?”
“I know I’m going to cause a lot of different comments by saying this, but I’m furious with that late, stupid woman,” Palin told Breitbart News. “I know she was a lefty and I know that means she was against guns, but if she were able to somehow miraculously come back to life now, what do you think she’d say about it? Do you think she’d change her mind about guns? I bet she would. She’d never leave the house without a 12-gauge shotgun by her side. And that’s why I’ve made a habit of doing that, as well.”
“But no, she had to go off and try to prove a point,” she added. “And now what? Her children will be motherless and her husband a widower. As a matter of fact, you know something? That woman had a million opportunities to bring along protection. And she failed to do that. And now she’s dead. So you know what? She got what she deserved, if you ask me. Because whenever opportunity presents itself and you don’t take it, and then it keeps on presenting itself for hundreds of times after that, and you still do nothing, you’re an idiot. And the hundred and first time, it’s going to come back and bite you in the as*.”
The former Alaskan governor then turned to the Leftists in her own country, saying, “I’m pretty sure Hillary Clinton doesn’t leave home without a couple of six shooters in her bra. We girls can tell when one of us is trying to fake it, and that woman has got something else up her sleeve, or rather, bosom. And that’s the difference between us and the Brits – our leftists will claim they’re anti-firearms, but will still be packing heat regardless of their rhetoric. The Brits, on the other hand, are much more honest about what they say, which is a first in history. The times, they are a changin’, indeed.”
“But, as someone who’s also involved in politics,” Palin continued, “I can certainly understand why everybody’s so worried about their safety. Heck, even Bernie Sanders probably has a can of pepper spray in his coat every time he’s making a speech in case his security doesn’t get to him in time. I mean, history is repeating itself. JFK got wacked by a sniper bullet, Bush almost got taken out by a shoe projectile, and now we’re back to guns. What’s next, a week-old, smelly underwear? And that’s a double threat, you know, because of the smell and the crust, if you know what I mean. But anyway, my point is – we all need guns for protection and this latest tragedy proves it. That woman brought it onto herself, so everybody else should wise up and not do the same.”
