Mounting evidence points to a terribly unbalanced young man with seemingly far left political leanings – while Democratic Party operative indicates shooting should be used to attack Tea Party conservatives.

Jarred Loughner: Age 22

What occurred on Saturday, January 8th was a terrible tragedy.  Six people left dead, including a child, and moderateDemocrat Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords fighting for her life following a gunshot wound to her head.  The alleged shooter, 22 year old Jared Lee Loughner, is now being investigated by local, state, and federal authorities for motive.

Ah, but leave it to the mainstream media and certain Democrats to fire up the political motive machine post haste following the tragedy in an attempt to lay blame on conservative Americans for the shooting – even as mounting evidence points to a man clearly suffering from mental instability, and if anything, far left political inclinations.

Loughner produced a handful of YouTube videos which reveal a mind producing near-incoherent thoughts regarding government mind control, a population of American “dreamers” and some odd version of a “dream currency”, and one who “defines terrorist”.  Loughner tagged a video of the burning of an American flag as a favorite, as well as listed The Communist Manifesto, and Mein Kampf as among his favorite books.  Alleged past aquaintences of Loughner  described him as “quite liberal”, “left wing” and a “political radical” in the hours following the shooting.

The fact that Congresswoman Giffords is a political moderate who just days prior to the shooting voted against Nancy Pelosi’s bid to continue as House Leader has been all but ignored by the media.  On the George Soros-funded Daily Kos website, there existed a long rant over Gifford’s vote, with the author repeatedly asserting Gifford was now “dead” due to her vote against Nancy Pelosi.  Daily Kos has since scrubbed the posting from its site, but the evidence was saved and is still accessible via  In the same reporting thread, HillBuzz also reveals that the Daily Kos had put a bullseye mark on Congresswoman Giffords in 2008, wanting Giffords to be eliminated in the primary race due to her too-conservative voting record.

And yet, despite this easily discovered evidence of alleged shooter Jarred Loughner as being quite emotionally disturbed, and if any political description could be applied, it would be of a far left liberal extremist, ABC, NBC, CBS, and CNN are all scrambling to develop an ongoing dialogue of the shooting being somehow an offshoot of the heated political debate of the last couple of years – namely the dialogue created by the Tea Party movement and conservative talk radio and Fox News.  Politico reported that a Democratic Party operative even went so far as to suggest Democrats now use the tragedy to take political advantage against the Tea Party and Republicans:

They need to deftly pin this on the tea partiers,” said the Democrat. “Just like the Clinton White House deftly pinned the Oklahoma City bombing on the militia and anti-government people.”

Another Democratic strategist said the similarity is that Tucson and Oklahoma City both “take place in a climate of bitter and virulent rhetoric against the government and Democrats.”

This Democrat said that the time had come to insist that Republicans stand up when, for example, a figure such as Fox News commentator Glenn Beck says something incendiary.

Ah, but where were the outcries within the media and Democartic Party when Barack Obama said the following in 2008?

UPDATE:  Associated Press reports Loughner was a 9/11 “Truther” – a group that believes the Bush administration orchestrated the attacks of 9/11.  The AP report also indicated Loughner harbored dislike against Congresswoman Giffords since 2007 – long before either the Tea Party or Sarah Palin came to national prominence.  A Gateway Pundit report now indicating Loughner was a Satanist as well.  It would appear the truth behind the shooter’s motives are a far cry from the attempted smear against conservatives the liberal media and its Democratic Party counterparts are attempting to manufacture following this crisis.
