Those words were not spoken by alleged Tucson shooter Jared Loughner nor by Sarah Palin nor by Glenn Beck but by presidential candidate Barack Hussein Obama at a town hall meeting at Radnor Middle School in Wayne, PA on June 14, 2008: “That’s exactly what Barack Obama said he would do to counter Republican attacks . . . Because [as Obama said] ‘from what I understand folks in Philly like a good brawl.’ “
Then, to show he found humor in using guns, Obama added, ”I’ve seen Eagles fans:” http://tiny.cc/34yhm. His comments evoked laughter and applause since, after all, isn’t the use of guns amusing?
If not amused by the massacre at Fort Hood by Nidal Malik Hasan on November 5,2009 then President Obama cautioned the nation not “to jump to conclusions” over that mass murder by a Muslim since, after all, he was a Muslim.
Obama’s mass mainstream media quickly jumped to a slew of conclusions and accusations in the Tucson aftermath blaming everyone from Palin to Beck to Fox News. Virtually all of the MSM conclusions and accusations have been defamatory and premature–and erroneous.
The president’s MSM never lets facts stand in the way of a good smearing interlaced with good lying. That media can be forgetful, though, as with Obama’s gun joke or as with ousted Arizona Democrat Rep. Harry Mitchell’s 2006 campaign ad depicting Republican J.D. Hayworth in the crosshairs of a rifle sight or as with the 2008 display of Sarah Palin hanging on a noose in front of a West Hollywood house.
They can be so very forgetful, so intentionally, demonically forgetful.
Not that the MSM will feature, or even cover, it but the truth about Jared Loughner is beginning to seep out. Why report truth when partisan fiction is so much more productive and satisfying?
Loughner’s fellow students at Pima Community College know that truth well, know well that he was expelled and recommended for a mental examination for causing a variety of disturbances. Classmate Caitie Parker tweeted that he was “left wing, quite liberal” in 2007 and known to be a reclusive “anti-flag pothead” who liked Jimi Hendrix and The Doors.
When interviewed by NBC and ABC, Parker wasn’t asked about Loughner’s political philosophy but those networks did find time to suggestTea Party and conservative involvement in the murders and maimings: http://tiny.cc/xcbal
Just this past June Loughner scared ”the living crap” out of returning Pima student Lynda Sorenson to such an extent that she was certain he was deranged and capable of murder: http://tiny.cc/gvibv. No MSM coverage. The MSM never involves itself with such crap or with first-hand witnesses unless the witnesses serve their purposes.
The New York Daily News did report, after the fact, that Loughner was far beyond weird, that he concealed “a chilling occult dimension” deep in his psyche: ”Hidden within a camouflage tent behind Jared Lee Loughner’s home sits an alarming altar with a skull sitting atop a pot filled with shriveled oranges” with “a row of ceremonial candles.”
Without observing that such behavior was hardly indicative of a conservative mindset, in a stroke of brilliant no-sh*t-sherlock reporting, the News added, “Experts on Sunday said the elements are featured in the ceremonies of a number of occult groups:” http://tiny.cc/uktxk
I may be a tad naive but I don’t know any other conservatives who are flag-burning potheads who are into the occult and keep skulls in pots in their backyards. Tea Partiers may scare the crap out of liberals, some few may even enjoy the music of Jimi Hendrix and The Doors, and Christine O’Donnell may have been enthralled with wicca in high school but Jared Loughlin clearly fits the profile of a wacco leftist far better than he does that of a conservative. It’s not likely that the media will elaborate on that logical deduction.
He may have been a dangerous oddball but, to his credit, Loughner, who volunteered at the Pima Animal Care Center is said to have loved animals. He walked dogs and cleaned cages. He may get an award from PETA but few other accolades before Arizona fries him which frying the MSM will protest vehemently while still ignoring the truth about Loughner and Barack Obama’s endorsement of guns over knives.
