It’s a sign of the times, and the political climate that I’m having to write this while Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords clings to life and others mourn the death of loved ones including Federal District Court Judge John Roll, and a nine year old girl. But here we are.
Within minutes of the shootings, the left wing bloggers and the so-called mainstream media immediately started blaming this tragedy on Sarah Palin, the Tea Party, and Conservative politics in general. Congresswoman Giffords, of course, is a democrat, so obviously some right winger did this.At least according to the disgusting people pointing fingers before fact one was in.
The fact is, the shooter, Jared Loughner, is crazy. Period.
Now the guy’s rants are absolutely in line with the leftist points of view, and among other things, he claims his favorite books are the Communist Manifesto, and Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf.
Jared Loughner is obviously a nut. He rants against our currency because it isn’t backed by gold. Claims to hate God, as well as people who use poor grammar.This is not someone who is of sound mind.
After looking at the information on Loughtner, his rants, his websites, and so on, I think the best way to describe him is as an anarchist, much like Joseph Stack, the 53 year old software engineer who flew his small plane into the IRS building in Austin, Texas last February. Stack was also an anarchist, and had rantings eerily similar to Loughner’s. .
Catie Parker, a friend of Loughner’s, took to Twitter today calling him “very left wing.” He’s also being described as a “political radical” a “loner” and “obsessed with the 2012 prophecies.” You can see her Twitter feed here.
It was reported on Parker’s feed that Loughner had an altercation with Congresswoman Giffords in 2007.
Pamela Geller on her Atlas Shrugs website has done a marvelous job of rapidly collecting a great deal of information on Loughner. I highly recommend everyone check out what she has compiled here.
The Daily Caller is reporting that Loughner has had other run-ins with the law in Arizona.
Michelle Malkin has excellent coverage of this tragedy, the shooter, and the craziness from the left. Again, this is a must read, which you can do here.
A I pointed out at the start, it angers me that I’m having to write this while lives hang in the balance and we morn the dead. But the corrupt, dishonest media in this country, and the left wing bloggers like Markos Moulitsas of the Daily Kos, and Paul Krugman of the New York Times, and even some democrat politicians, started blaming Conservatives, tea partiers, and most especially Sarah Palin for this tragedy immediately, without one single fact known by anyone.
So, the record must be set straight.
This is standard operating procedure for the left in this country though. Ironically, when left winger Joseph Stack, who we mentioned earlier, flew his plane into the Austin IRS building, the usual suspects immediately blamed it on some “crazy tea partier.” When it was learned he was a left wing nutter, like Loughner, they changed the subject. Never apologizing to the nation for their misinformation.
We will have plenty of time in the days ahead to go after the corrupt media and disgusting left wingers who were so quick to hurl lies and even threats at Conservatives in general, and Sarah Palin in particular, over this despicable act by a crazy man. Now though, I think there is a better use of our time and effort.
I’d like to ask all of our readers to pray for Congresswoman Giffords, Gabby’s, speedy recovery. The best news out of this entire situation is she survived and is expected to recover. Prayers should also be said for the family of Judge Roll, as well as the young girl who was killed, and everyone else dead or injured. That is a far better use of our time and effort.
May God bless them all.
