You gotta love our liberal friends at The New York Times. They spend a week spinning the notion that the suspect in the AZ shooting is a right-wing nutcase. Now, it turns out, in a long thumbsucker, that Loughner bought into all the liberal conspiracy stuff: 9/11 conspiracies and Bush hatred.
He became intrigued by antigovernment conspiracy theories, including that the Sept. 11 attacks were perpetrated by the government and that the country’s central banking system was enslaving its citizens. His anger would well up at the sight of President George W. Bush, or in discussing what he considered to be the nefarious designs of government.
Oh no! How could that be? How could a young high-school student get involved in all that wing-nut stuff? I'll tell you how. All the left-wing conspiracy stuff is pretty easy to find. Any ordinary high-school student would find it in the air. That's because, in the mid-2000s, it was swirling around in the mainstream media, and prominent Democrats were winking at it. Remember the premiere of Michael Moore's lefty Fahrenheit 9/11 in Washington DC? Prominent elected Democrats, including United States senators, went to that performance. No doubt mainstream TV hosts like John Stewart, Stephen Colbert, and Bill Maher were winking at the anti-Bush rhetoric--even extending to foaming anti-Bush rhetoric.
So now, after a week of wild speculation, The New York Times calmly states that Loughner was angry at Bush. Why, what a shock. I'd say that any teenager in the mid-2000s that did not pick up on the anti-Bush hysteria would have been a psycho, living in his own private world. Or he would have been a Rush baby that, by accident or by influence from some non-educator adult, had received a mild indoctrination in conservative politics.
I've said it before and I'll say it again. The next few years are going to be a perfect hell for our liberal friends. You see, they promised their clients, first of all the white working class, and now the expanded victim class of women and minorities, that by signing up with Democrats they would never have to suffer the challenge and stresses of ordinary adult life. They could have their benefit cake and eat it.
But now the great game of entitlement politics is hitting the buffers, as the Brits say, and the people that will suffer are the people that put their trust in liberals and Democrats.
The only thing we don't yet know is how these disappointed folks will express their disappointment, their fear, and their rage.
