Posted on 01/10/2011 1:19:16 PM PST by Michael van der Galien
The shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords has brought out all of the political cheap shots, with many on the left continuing to blame the incident on talk radio, Fox News, Sarah Palin and in the case of Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, GOP members of Congress rejection of the Obama agenda. However, the more the media and police find out about Jared Loughner the shooter the more we learn that he had no political agenda and was a very disturbed psycho.
USA Today, reported that Loughners teachers and classmates at Pima Community College, believed him to be mentally unstable and possibly dangerously violent.
He was one of the last kids to come in, and he sat down and almost immediately started laughing to himself in a way that was just kind of creepy, recalls Alex Kotonias, 20, who sat behind him. And then, as soon as the teacher started going over the syllabus, he had this outburst out of nowhere, didnt even raise his hand, and started asking the teacher some sort of weird questions about whether he believed in mind control. Adjunct professor Ben McGahee, 28, says, I remember going home and thinking to myself, Is he going to bring a weapon to class? In an earlier report McGahee described:
McGahee said he advised campus administrators about Loughners behavior and school officials at one point posted a security officer in the classroom. He described Loughner as not overtly hostile, but prone to bizarre, sometimes confrontational outbursts in which his face would get bright red.

I have trouble believing this guy was affected by much talk from either side of the aisle.
Just plain nuts.
Ah, but now we have to go back and point out those on the left who tried to paint the right with this guy,
tried to stifle dissenting speech,
and tried to exploit the tragedy to get anti-gun laws passed.
Political or not, he was a creature of the Left.
He is the fruit of the poisonous Liberal Tree.
He was political at one point:
Loughner’s friend and bandmate says “At that time, she said, he was very philosophical and leaned to the left. She said, For the Bush/Kerry election we all wore 1 term president buttons. That election was HUGE to us.
“Contrary to the opinion of several bloggers following the shooting, there is no evidence that Sarah Palin or Glenn Beck had any influence on Loughner. On the contrary, according to Caitie, at the time she knew him, he was left wing, quite liberal....”
“Caitie also said he was a pot head and was into the music of Hendrix, The Doors, and Anti-Flag. We listened to political punk in high school & agreed with their leftist opinions for the most part. Anti-Flag was our band.
The guy was a devoid nutcase. It makes no sense for anyone to bring politics in. He just happened to be fixated on a politician. I’d guess he could have gone off on anyone.
Personally, I’ve been thinking about the people shot and killed, those wounded and their families. And the people that witnessed the event. I’ve seen people shot and killed and it is not pretty. You never forget it. I’ve seen a young child at rest in their casket after death and that is another experience you do not want to have. I have a friend that was hit in the head by an IED and what that did to him is so sad.
Unfortunately, some people seemed to almost immediately forget about the people killed or wounded and their families. And instead started to point fingers at other people who had nothing to do with what heppened. Only for politics. Sad.
Closest I could come to describing his hodgepodge of beliefs would be a cross between punk libertarian new age hippie.
Mostly he was just nuts.
FRUIT OF THE LOONS.............
“But, of course, we all know that listening to Rush and watching FOX news, voting for Sarah for VP, loving the Tea-party movement, that is what fed him. We all know this. You know it is true because the MSM, and PMSNBC tells you it is.”
Oh, absolutely! Because EVERY good tea-bagger has read The Communist Manifesto. </sarc>
This is just one more infected fruit from the rotten progressive tree.
I certainly hope that every member of the Tea Party has read The Communist Manifesto. I have. Know your enemy.
They are quick to use the news cycle to link conservative radio to these murders. How come they don’t link the great society and the govt entitlement monster to the tens of thousands of urban murders each year?
Or, you could read the democRat party platform.
The 10 points of the CM are nearly identical to the policies the dems have or want to enact.
Jared Loughner - Kerry voter.
First of all, may our gracious Triune God bring healing to Gabrielle Giffords and to others injured in this incident, and may the memories of those killed be eternal!!!!
Now my discussion of the incident:
Jared Loughner is a total NUT, as attested by all who know him!!!!
But it’s all too convenient for a tragic incident like this to happen in January 2011 (just after the electoral shellacking that the Dims took), and in ARIZONA, the epicenter of Americans’ resistance to the obama/Soros/Al-Waleed agenda.
As you may know, obama and his attack dog Holder—among others—have been trying to destroy Arizona for a long time, between unchecked alien invasion and cartel violence, boycotts, and lawsuits. Now they have an atrociously violent and murderous incident that they are using to pin on not only Palin and the Tea Party, but also Arizona, which the stupid dupe Dupnik calls the epicenter of bigotry and hatred, etc.
I’m sure that the obamaites will use this incident as an excuse to shut down all resistance to their agenda, and push for greater totalitarian control—restrictions on free speech, gun “control”, the civilian national “security” force, and who knows what else.
We all need to push back and resist obama even harder. Palin, Beck, and others should sue those who are unfairly defaming them over the Tucson tragedy. And we all need to stand with Arizona, and support her even more than we have been doing.
“....Was Not Political, Just Psycho”
I thought so. Just another Demonrat.
He'd contacted Gabrielle Giffords on at least two prior occasions and was enraged enough by her failure to support Pelosi to track her down and put a bullet in her head, point blank.
Nobody's going to tell me he's not political now, of all times, after 48 hours of nonstop slander and yes, vitriol directed at me and people who believe as I do, and at Sarah Palin, just because the shopworn "he must be a teabagger" leftist scapegoating schtick didn't stick ... again.
