What a tragedy in Arizona today.
I just heard the sheriff of the county in which this mass shooting occurred say he thought there was too much vitriol in the country and that Arizona seemed to be a catalyst for prejudice and bigotry.
I’m really glad he brought that up. The vitriol coming from leftist commentators such as Keith Olbermann and others on MSNBC on a daily basis could tend to influence an unstable individual such as Jared Loughner clearly is, even though it is no excuse for his actions. And from Loughner’s profile, I’m sure that would more than likely be his network of choice. And even the president has encouraged lawlessness in Arizona by pitting the United States government against Arizona in a lawsuit. There is a lot of prejudice and bigotry against anyone who disagrees or speaks out against the leftist agenda.
I clicked on a link to the Daily Kos to reach a post called “My CongressWOMAN voted against Nancy Pelosi! And is now DEAD to me!” written only two days ago when a few democrats, including Gabrielle Giffords, voted for someone other than Nancy Pelosi as minority leader. I bookmarked the page to go back to it later, and then I thought, I believe I’ll just copy that page, which I did. I went back to it shortly thereafter, and lo and behold it had been removed. Now why would they want that removed I wonder?
I notice several others thought the same thing and got a screen shot of it.
It seems that though Mrs. Giffords is a democrat, she is a blue dog conservative democrat and that has not set too well with “Mr. Kos” since June of 2008 when he put a bull’s eye on her, I suppose for defeat.
Mrs. Giffords is a staunch supporter of gun rights, is pro-life , strong on border control, and was one of three congressmen who urged President Obama not to file a law suit against Arizona.
Both Hillbuzz and Sweetness and Light have done an excellent job of posting shots of the sites and posts that are frantically being removed from the net, so I won’t post all of it here.
I’ll just post this profile that was on Loughner’s You Tube site.
My name is Jared Lee Loughner!
I attended school: Thornydale elementary,Tortolita Middle School, Mountain View Highschool, Northwest Aztec Middle College, and Pima Community College.
My favorite interest was reading, and I studied grammar. Conscience dreams were a great study in college!
(*My idiom: I could coin the moment!*)
Pass me the strings!
I had favorite books: Animal Farm, Brave New World, The Wizard Of OZ, Aesop Fables, The Odyssey, Alice Adventures Into Wonderland, Fahrenheit 451, Peter Pan, To Kill A Mockingbird, We The Living, Phantom Toll Booth, One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, Pulp,Through The Looking Glass, The Communist Manifesto, Siddhartha, The Old Man And The Sea, Gulliver’s Travels, Mein Kampf, The Republic, and Meno.
And this very, very strange and scary video that he marked as a favorite. I don’t know if this creepy figure is him or not, but I did see a comment that makes me think he was involved in it somehow or at least knew the person who was. This probably will be removed soon, too, but it has been downloaded to several computers.
