22-year-old Jared Loughner
A horrible tragedy occurs in Tucson, AZ, and within hours, all the usual suspects like Jane Fonda, Paul Krugman, Keith Olbermann, the Leftist blogs, and the entire state-run media are blaming conservatives, the Tea Party, anyone associated with conservatives and the Tea Party, and especially, Sarah Palin.

This tragic event demonstrates, as if we needed any more evidence, that America is almost irreparably divided.
22-year-old Jared Loughner was not, and never was a conservative. There is absolutely no evidence of him being a conservative in any way.

All the evidence regarding his political and philosophical views, evidence which is flowing fast and furious now, suggests that the guy was a) a mental case, and b) a Leftist. One need go no further than to Loughner’s own YouTube page to understand this. The guy is a nut.
I’m not interested in his psychological make up. You can count on the media to spend the next week bringing out all their ‘experts’ to tell us how and why he did what he did. And they will all be wrong. They will put all of America on their couch while they are at it, and declare Americans clinically insane. They’d get that one half right.
It’s abundantly clear by the insane rampage on the Left and their rabid desire to blame the right without a shred of evidence, that it is the entire Left who is in need of psychiatric help. The kook Left was angry at Gabrielle Giffords for not voting for Nancy Pelosi as speaker. To many on the Left, she had sold them out.
The Arizona Daily Star, certainly not a right of center paper, has a good initial story on the guy. It describes a warped guy with a lot of baggage.

…The online accounts also contain bizarre discussions of a new currency and literacy, as well as threatening and despairing messages.
“WOW! I’m glad i didn’t kill myself. I’ll see you on National T.v.! This is foreshadow …. why doesn’t anyone talk to me?..” he posted on MySpace Dec. 14.
On Dec. 13, he wrote: “I don’t feel good: I’m ready to kill a police officer! I can say it.”
In a posting on YouTube, Loughner wrote repeatedly about a new currency.
“I’m thinking of creating a new currency,” he wrote. “Therefore, I’m thinking of a design for my new coins size, shape, color, material, and image to start a new money system.”
He also wrote repeatedly about literacy. In a written message on YouTube, Loughner said: “The majority of people, who reside in District-8 are illiterate – hilarious. I don’t control your English grammar structure, but you control your English grammar structure.”
In a message posted on his MySpace account, titled “Goodbye friends,” Loughner said: “Dear friends…please don’t be mad at me. The literacy rate is below 5%. I haven’t talked to one person who is literate.” It was unclear when it was posted.
In a MySpace profile, Loughner said “My favorite interest was reading, and I studied grammar. Conscience dreams were a great study in college.”
He lists among his favorite books “Mein Kampf” and “The Communist Manifesto”. But he also includes a broad variety of other titles, including: “Animal Farm,” “Brave New World,” “To Kill a Mockingbird,” and “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”.
In another YouTube message, Loughner said: “I know who’s listening: Government Officials, and the People. Nearly all the people, who don’t know this accurate information of a new currency, aren’t aware of mind control and brainwash methods. If I have my civil rights, then this message wouldn’t have happen.”
“In conclusion, my ambition – is for informing literate dreamers about a new currency; in a few days, you know I’m conscience dreaming! Thank you!”
In a YouTube video dated Dec. 15, titled “Introduction: Jared Loughner” the accused gunman describes himself as a U.S. military recruit who had applied to join the Army. The Army, however, said it rejected Lougher as a recruit in 2008.
In the video, Loughner makes a rambling mention of “MEPS in Phoenix” a reference to the Military Entrance Processing Station in the state capital that all Arizona recruits from every branch of service pass through before leaving for basic training.
“Every United States military recruit at MEPS in Phoenix is receiving one mini bible before the tests,” it said. “Jared Loughner is a United States military recruit at MEPS in Phoenix. Therefore, Jared Loughner is receiving one mini bible before the tests.
“I didn’t write a belief on my Army application and the recruiter wrote on the application: None.”
First Sgt. Brian Homme, who oversees Army recruiting in Tucson, said Loughner applied to enlist in December 2008 and was sent to Phoenix to take a test and physical. But “he was found to be unqualified so he never joined the Army,” Homme said.
He declined to say why Loughner was rejected, citing confidentiality laws.
Good grief, what kind of guy lists Mein Kampf and The Communist Manifesto as their favorite books? To say you’ve read them is one thing, but single them out as favorites?
I'm one of Jared Loughner's FAVORITE books!
So, we have his YouTube account, his web postings, the word of people who knew him, and his history, and nothing about him being a conservative or a member of the Tea Party. These tweets are from someone who knew Jared Loughner.
What he comes off as, is a Leftist of the punk-anarchist-pseudo-intellectual sort. But, again, I’ll leave his fevered brain to others to diagnose.
It is the media, and the Liberal Left where the real lunacy lies. We have so-called mainstream, establishment Democrats running to the mike and tapping away at their keyboards accusing conservatives of a vile crime before they knew a single fact in the case. This is what is most disturbing.
The Left is behind most all the non-Islamic violence going on in the world. Just glance across the pond to Europe, where armies of Jared Loughner-types have been rampaging in the streets for the past year. The American Left is no different.
Sweet Christina Taylor Greene, may she rest in peace.
As America wrestles with this latest trauma, may we not forget the other victims of this lunatic’s hand. Real people with real lives were demolished in an instant by a deranged 22 year-old looking for attention, or G-d knows what.
Our prayers go out to the families of the slain. May G-d comfort them in the time of their greatest nightmare.
