THE PSYCHOLOGICAL TRIGGER FOR THE ARIZONA SHOOTING
By Investigating Journalist Jon Rappoport

In the age of political correctness, it has become normal to ask what comment, word, phrase, film, TV show, insult, or stray remark has offended a “victim.” Then, without pause, blame is placed on that offensive communication and the person behind it.
This is important, because with just a slight adjustment, it is now acceptable to ask what has motivated a potential killer to cross the line and kill—so we can engage in the same kind of blame.
I’m talking about Loughner, of course, and the Arizona shooting.
The latest discovery is that he was obsessed with watching the film, Zeitgeist.
People can therefore attack the film as “the psychological trigger.”
This is pure nonsense.
It is deranged nonsense, and it leads to calls to limit free speech.
If we had to eliminate everything that could negatively influence a criminal, we’d have nothing left. The fact of the matter is, all criminals seek to rationalize their actions with lies, and there is no length they won’t go to, in order to make what they do excusable.
