5. Sara Palin is an Anti-Semite

Compromised page: Blood libel


We all knew this was coming. As soon as Sarah Palin made a formal statement regarding the tragic shooting in Tuscon, Arizona and blamed journalists for "manufacturing a blood libel that serves only to incite the very hatred and violence they purport to condemn," America collectively sat back and waited for her to get blasted for the misuse of the phrase "blood libel". A phrase that's traditionally used to falsely accuse Jewish people of using baby blood to perform rituals. Not only did the news media, many Jewish advocacy groups, and other politicians go in on the governor-turned-personality, someone decided to post her photo under the "Antisemitism" banner on the blood libel Wikipedia page. To be fair, we don't believe Palin knew what blood libel meant so we don't think she's an anti-Semite. She's just not very bright.
