Posted on Governor Palin’s Facebook page on Saturday.
Why can’t politics be put aside in the wake of South Carolina’s mourning? Politicians – please try. It would be in honor of them and the leadership provided by those most tragically affected. Let us follow the wisdom of the people of Charleston who lost their loved ones. The kind and beautiful family members who spoke at the court hearing on Friday know that this is a deeply personal human tragedy. Their words of grace reminded us that the only remedy for evil is the Lord who casts out the darkness in our hearts and offers us mercy. Charleston has been called “The Holy City” because of its skyline of church spires. Now all of America knows the truth of that title. Please respect their time of immeasurable grief, and let us honor this special city.
– Sarah Palin

In addition to a call for more gun control, Obama’s latest political football using the Charleston tragedy is his attack on the St. Andrews Cross flag flying at the Capitol Building in Columbia, South Carolina.
These articles may give some insight into why South Carolinians still honor those who suffered and died not only for states’ rights but also during Sherman’s revenge on the state.
