Facts of Shooter’s Political Beliefs Do Not Match Liberal Talking Points
Democrats hastily exploit tragedy to ram through hate speech, gun control legislation

In their classless urgency to exploit Saturday’s tragic events for political gain, the establishment media and Democrats have attempted to pull a mass hoax on the American people by blaming “right-wing rhetoric” for the massacre even as the facts confirm that shooter Jared Lee Loughner was a pot-smoking left-winger who worshipped skulls, burned the American flag, and listed the Communist Manifesto as one of his favorite books.
Even as Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik implied that conservative radio and television talk show hosts were to blame for shootings that killed six people and critically wounded Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, it began to emerge that the gunman was a left-wing high school dropout who liked to smoke marijuana and read Karl Marx literature.
Despite the fact that Loughner’s former classmate described him as “quite liberal” and “left wing,” the New York Times, Washington Post, along with a host of statist blogs like Huffington Post and the Daily Kos, were beating the drum for so-called right-wingers to be politically silenced in the name of “toning down the rhetoric”.
In reality, Loughner’s political views were all over the map, sharing characteristics of conservatism, liberalism and libertarianism. He was a fundamentally disturbed and deranged individual, which was the main reason for the carnage he become embroiled in, not because he was a tea partier influenced by the resistance against big government, as the establishment is now trying to claim.
How many tea partiers have you seen burning American flags and erecting satanic shrines to skulls?
