Shootings used as Political Scapegoats

#1 John F Kennedy

“He didn’t even have the satisfaction of being killed for civil rights. It’s-it had to be some silly little communist” -Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

This despite the fact that Dan Rather did an run around to report that school children cheered at the news of Kennedy’s death. Another headline read “deep in the hate of Texas”.

“As I knew him he was left wing, quite liberal. & oddly obsessed with the 2012 prophecy,” the former classmate, Caitie Parker, wrote in a series of Twitter feeds Saturday. “I haven’t seen him since ’07 though. He became very reclusive.”

“He was a political radical & met Giffords once before in ’07, asked her a question & he told me she was ‘stupid & unintelligent,’ ” she wrote.

Paul Krugman writes an article and repeatedly mentions “Tea Party”, “right wing” and “Sarah Palin” but fails to mention that Loughner was considered (according to the very paper he writes in) a “liberal” and one of his favorite books (according to his youtube profile) was the Communist Manifesto.

Loughner’s Youtube profile (Classitup10) complete favorite books list:

Animal Farm, Brave New World, The Wizard Of OZ, Aesop Fables, The Odyssey, Alice Adventures Into Wonderland, Fahrenheit 451, Peter Pan, To Kill A Mockingbird, We The Living, Phantom Toll Booth, One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, Pulp,Through The Looking Glass, The Communist Manifesto, Siddhartha, The Old Man And The Sea, Gulliver’s Travels, Mein Kampf, The Republic, and Meno.
