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.
