New York– Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin emailed each other about the shooting in Arizona, and Beck read some of their exchange on his Monday radio show. Beck told Palin he feared for her safety, and he condemned the shooting, which led to the deaths of six people and the wounding of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
Both have been accused by some as having contributed to the political climate that may have indirectly led to the shooting. Palin, in particular, has drawn criticism for the map she put up that placed Giffords’ congressional district, among others, within crosshairs.
Beck said that Palin had gotten in touch with him first on Sunday night. He read what he had sent to her in reply.
“Sarah, as you know, peace is always the answer. I know you are felling the same heat, if not much more on this. I want you to know you have my support. But please look into protection for your family. An attempt on you could bring the republic down,” Beck wrote. “There are nutjobs on all sides…terror is terror. I don’t care if it is for Allah or your party.”
