DHS Links Loughner to White Supremacists…(Same BULLSHIT, Different Day…)
Sunday, January 9, 2011
Fox News reported earlier today that according to Homeland Security Jared Loughner may be connected to a purported anti-semitic group known as American Renaissance.
The leader of the organization, Jared Taylor, has dismissed the accusation as nonsense. “Taylor says he also has no indication that Loughner ever attended any of AmRen’s events, all of which have been held on the East Coast,” Fox News reports.
“The group’s ideology is anti government, anti immigration, anti ZOG (Zionist Occupational Government), anti Semitic. Gabrielle Gifford is the first Jewish female elected to such a high position in the US government. She was also opposite this group’s ideology when it came to immigration debate,” writes Jennifer Griffin, a colleague of Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren.
In 2009, a DHS report on “rightwing extremism” attempted to portray Second Amendment and anti-illegal immigrant activists as potentially violent. DHS secretary Janet Napolitano defended the report after it leaked to the media.
David Franke, writing for Lew Rockwell’s blog, notes that even the SPLC is having a difficult time connecting the accused shooter to white supremacist groups. “The Southern Poverty Law Center is a leftist organization, of course, that does its best to tie racists and extremists to conservatives at every opportunity. If they cannot find Loughner in their database, that’s a pretty good indication that he’s not a conservative activist,” he writes.
