Sarah Palin Thursday ripped South Carolina Rep. Jim Clyburn for saying that Democrats needed "blazing guns" in the Obamacare fight with Republicans after a Breitbart News report noted that he slammed her in 2010 for her infamous Obamacare map featuring rifle crosshairs.

"Unflippingbelievable!" Palin said on Facebook. "More fake news drudged up by libs despite their tired old whine about my 'targets' being refuted by every piece of evidence, common sense and truth."

 

 

In an interview Thursday with Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC, Clyburn said that Democrats "are going to have to come out of the box with blazing guns" to battle Republicans who want to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

"We are going to have to do that if we want to see this law preserved," he added. "I believe that many American people are counting on us to fight for them."

Breitbart noted that Clyburn attacked Palin seven years ago after she displayed a map targeting Democrats seeking re-election who voted for the healthcare plan with rifle crosshairs, calling it "beyond the pale" and arguing that it could incite violence or terrorism.

"It implied violent action," the congressman told MSNBC then. "They need to stop this, because . . . I’ve seen how these things escalate."

Story continues below video.

Palin slammed Clyburn, 76, who has been on Capitol Hill for a quarter-century, in her post.

"Really, Clyburn," she said, "how stupid do you think Americans are?

"And did your party's recent thumping tell you nothing?"

"Give it a rest, MSNBC," she said before admonishing: "Stay classy, LSM," using her acronym for "lame-stream media."
