ABC News: Jared Loughner Is A Liberal

Interview w/Friend of Loughner Not Getting Coverage

A friend of gunman Jared Loughner who was interviewed by ABC News this morning described him as a “political radical” and “left wing, quite liberal and oddly obsessed with 2012 prophecy.

Here are Caitlin Parker’s “tweets” from Saturday afternoon, after the shootings occurred:

to believe the reason ABC found Parker was because of her tweets on this subject Saturday:

Yet during the interview with ABC News this morning, the interviewer Pierre Thomas failed to ask about Parker’s tweets about Loughner’s political ideology and I for one cannot believe that Parker’s ‘tweets’ didn’t lead him to her.

From the interview:

PIERRE THOMAS, ABC SENIOR JUSTICE CORRESPONDENT: Former high school classmates say Loughner never fit in.

(UNKNOWN): He is just off to himself and more of an outcast.

(UNKNOWN): A lonely kid just off to himself.

THOMAS: One friend he did manage to make, Caitlin Parker, said he became more peculiar in recent years. She recalled a strange encounter he once had with a wounded congresswoman.

CAITLIN PARKER: As I knew him more and more after high school, he got a little bit more odd. I mean, he was obsessed with the 2012 prophecy. I mean, he met Gabrielle Giffords once in '07 and told me he asked her some question that made absolutely no sense to me, but he said, "I can't believe she doesn't understand it. Politicians just don't get it."

Think about this for a minute: Caitlin Parker had known that Loughner was a “Tea Party Member”, Fox News watcher or had any hard associations with a right-wing organization, is it reasonable to believe that ABC would’ve ignored this information?

Of course they wouldn’t have, they’d have trumpeted it all over the headlines but the fact is Loughner has no known ties to any Tea Party or Conservative groups. 

As I said before, the LEFT WING WHACKO’s own this nutjob.  He’s of their creation, of that there’s no doubt.

More hardcore rightwinged conservative have been the mastermind of violent acts??!! What about all the riots in Europe? What about all the riots that have happened in our country? They have ALL been MASSES of liberals. I'm talking about extensive damage to public property, unconscionable posters and protests on private property. And both liberals and conservatives have their share of murderers.

Hey Anonymous, I guess Ted Kaczinsky espousing AlGore's "Earth in the Balance" as his bible had nothing to do with his violent acts huh?

And then PETA throwing paint on people who wear leather or fur?

How about Obama's statement in Philadelphia back in early 2010 telling his supporters "If our opponents bring a knife to a fight, then we'll bring a gun?"

Right, you radical lefty assholes never espouse violence huh?

Oh wait, how could I forget Alec Baldwin calling for the stoning of former Congressman Henry Hyde and his entire family?

Right, the left wingnuts never EVER advocate violence!

OMG, Conservatives LOVE to play ignorant and stupid. So this "Lefty" attempts to assassinate a liberal...because.....why? She was a blue dog democrat?!? Who cares what political party he espouses to? I do know that, currently, Conservatives, and Tea Party members:
Don't believe in "taking violence off the table!

Believe in 2nd amendment remedies to stop the government!

Believe in "Don't retreat, RELOAD!"

Profiling latinos should be legal.

Their should be an investigation on all persons of the Islamic faith.

I mean when you spew such venom, unfortunately the ill-informed may take you literally, especially if they're not wound to tight like this particular individual.

Also, just so you know, I'm a firearm owning, mink possessing, green-leaning, monetarily conservative, socially liberal, independent.

Let's set the record straight.

The first person (actually website) to put a BULLSEYE on Gabby Giffords was none other than the Daily Kos, back in June 1998. Here's the link to that:

And here's a post on the DAily Kos from January 6th from a former Giffords supporter saying Giffords was "dead to me."

Gee, where were all these threats against Giffords coming from? Not from the right, that's for sure, they came from the left-wing whackjobs!
