SPLC blames Ayn Rand, David Icke and Others for Arizona Shooting
Sunday, January 9, 2011
Who is to blame for Jared Loughner’s bizarre actions yesterday? According to Mark Potok, anyone with even the vaguest links to his bizarre and disjointed online ramblings.
As a shocked world looks to the background of accused shooter Jared Lee Loughner for clues as to why he would shoot a Congresswoman, a Federal judge and others, Mark Potok, spokesman for the Southern Poverty Law Center, predictably stepped forward on Keith Olbermann’s MSNBC program to paint a broad brush against the “radical” right, whom he automatically deems responsible for the shootings.
Going from the books posted on the accused shooter’s You Tube reading list, Potok deceitfully attempts to connect him to author Ayn Rand’s We The Living while ignoring Loughner’s praise for the Communist Manifesto and national socialist Hitler’s Mein Kampf.
