Haters go nuclear over Sarah Palin’s Columbus Day tweet


Palin-haters on Twitter have always been a particularly vile species of troll, but it seems like they brought a little extra crazy to the party for Columbus Day. Here’s the tweet that started the frenzy:

Happy Columbus Day. Thank goodness for the determination of all bold explorers and innovators—yesterday and… http://t.co/cE4vypCb

— Sarah Palin (@SarahPalinUSA) October 8, 2012

That’s it, just a few words about a legitimate national holiday — which of course was more than enough to generate frothing at the mouth from the darker corners of the Twitterverse.

@SarahPalinUSA its easy to see why the Native Alaskan tribes hate u. You're an idiot just like Columbus.

Suits you right to celebrate land theft and murer :3 MT @SarahPalinUSA Happy Columbus Day. Thank goodness for determination of all explorers

Say it with us now: “Murder, M-U-R-D-E-R, murder”. If you must insult, at least do it in proper English.

@SarahPalinUSA Columbus was an ethnic cleanser. He killed many, many ppl. When are you celebrating Hitler Day? You're a Hillbilly idiot!

Yeah thank god for Columbus @SarahPalinUSA. If he didn't kill all those Natives I wouldn't know what the fuck I'd be doing now

Really? So, Palin Derangement Syndrome was just about Columbus Day? I guess that settles that.

Also, there was this guy:

@SarahPalinUSA : if not for Columbus, how would syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, small pox and tuberculosis have ever crossed the ocean? .

Yes, it’s just a standard-issue hate tweet by a purple egg — but in this case it was tweeted 46 times (we counted), sometimes with strings of numbers and extra punctuation to avoid spam filters.

@SarahPalinUSA , U LIKE TO DELETE COMMENTS NOW? I will put up 10 for every one you delete. Why cant u handle the truth , ignorant ditz.

— Michael (@neonblueclock) October 8, 2012

Trust us, it’s not that she can’t handle you — it’s just that you’re an annoying troll.
