“I Am Able To Control Every Belief In Every Religion By Being The Mind Controller”

Law enforcement is saying that the Giffords’ shooter was one Jared Loughner, a student at Pima Community College.

Here’s his Youtube channel.  Check out the references to “government controlling our minds by controlling grammar”, mind control, the unconstitutionality of tuition.   There are references that make noises that sound like anarchism and atheism – but for the most part, he seems to be very, very mentally ill; if he is indeed the shooter behind the (as this is written) 1 to 4 dead, very very mentally ill.

Here’s an example:

Here’s another, from three weeks or so ago, with a few rather troubling bits in it:

looks just a tad mentally ill, from my utterly unqualified but common-sense-drenched perspective.

Judge for yourself.

Side note:  Anyone trying to fob this maniac off on the Tea Party is going to have me to deal with.  Don’t go there.

For the record, I’m with Speaker Boehner on this one:

“I am horrified by the senseless attack on Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and members of her staff.  An attack on one who serves is an attack on all who serve.  Acts and threats of violence against public officials have no place in our society.  Our prayers are with Congresswoman Giffords, her staff, all who were injured, and their families.  This is a sad day for our country.”

And my prayers are with Rep. Giffords and her family, as well as all the other victims – however many there are.

UPDATE:  I’m in the studio, with Ed, digging into whatever’s available about Mr. Loughner.  So is Ed, over at HotAir.

UPDATE 2:  Rep. Giffords is out of surgery – after having been reported as “dead” by NPR and Fox during the 1PM CT hour.  There is apparently room for optimism about the Representative’s condition.  She was (reportedly) shot in the temple at four feet range; perhaps the vagaries of ballistics and some excellent doctors have given her a miracle.

  1. Jared was KNOWN to go to Tea Party Rallys so don’t even start that dealing with you bs

  2. I just want to repeat what I said to Mitch and Ed on their radio show. People serving in Congress are serving ME. They are employees, no different than police or firefighters. They have my respect (except Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Barney Frank) and support. Any attack on them is an attack on all of us (even Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Barney Frank).

    Stupid, disgusting, and unacceptable. This pisses me off more than I can say, and everyone here knows I have no shortage of vernacular to employ.

    God bless all of the victims, and please, save my country.

  3. Jared was KNOWN to go to Tea Party Rallys so don’t even start that dealing with you bs

    Um, yeah, got a cite on that?

    And even if it’s true, so what? I’ve been to anarchist events; it doesn’t make me an anarchist.

  4. Fox News is reading more what this guy wrote. He is a bigger whack job than the St Louis Park guy who murdered the 2 store employees in Iowa last week.

  5. The bullet was a “through and through” so there’s not the issue of trying to fish it out. A small serendipity in Rep. Giffords’ recovery.

  7. Dan was KNOWN to go to gay sex parities so don’t even start that dealing with you bs
    Oh snap, I just made that up.

    Get a frigging grip.

  8. By the way, “dan” a nine year old girl died in this stupid, horrible event. Do you want to blame that on Tea Party Rallys (sic) too? Punk.

    I need a shower.

  9. I apologize to SITD readers. Morons like “dan” really push my envelope. I will try to stay civil.

  10. If Satan himself appeared tomorrow, radicals in each party would claim to have photos of Satan appearing at a fundraiser for the other side. Two things to take away from today’s tragedy-

    First reports from a chaotic scene are usually wrong, and

    Stupid is as stupid does, and has little to do with political parties.

  11. Dan, no one knows that. His favorite books also included the Communist Manifesto and Mein Kampf. I heard that there are also Youtube clips of him burning the american flag. Not exactly tea-party like. My prediction for this nutter is that he is bi-polar manic (as I was once) with some paranoid schizophrenia and possible multiple personality disorder. He’s going to spend the rest of his life in jail (until he gets the death penalty) or spend the rest of his life in a looney bin. The “problem” with living in a free society is that it does produce people like this. Sadly not much can be done about it. My heart goes out to the families of the dead and injured. The only “good” thing about this is that he is still alive so we can analyze him and learn to pick up triggers on people like them so they can be prevented from doing such acts of terror. My two cents

  12. Hey “dan”, someone who knew him and went to school with him has different information about him:

    click here

    Once again, the violence comes from the left, not the right. One more for your “Climate of Hate” category, Mitch.

  13. Bill C,

    I”ll take it under advisement. I still think he’s more likely a nutcase than politically motivated. We’ll see.

  14. Understood, Mitch. I misunderstood that your category was politically motivated violence and not just violence committed by leftists. BTW thanks for fixing my link 🙂

  15. No exaggeration here, this is how Twitter read this afternoon when I looked up info:

    Right leaning Tweeters – This is horrible, pray for Rep’s family and her, others.
    Left leaning Tweeters – Sarah Palin has blood on her hands!!

    Who cares if families are destroyed, cities are shook, Judges are dead, or children are shot — this is an opportunity for Sarah Palin to be bashed!!

    The myth of a compassionate left keeps being busted on a daily basis.

  16. Perhaps now the left will reign in the hateful rhetoric they foster against Palin, Limbaugh, Beck, and Fox News.

  17. Terry, that would require a level of maturity that your average leftist does not possess. I am pleasantly surprised that we have not had an Angryclown comment on “wingnuts” and guns on this thread.

  18. The challenge of living in a free society is magnified every time an event like this happens. I have no doubt that if the internet had existed in the 1960s, Charles Whitman would have posted some disturbing harbingers before he killed 16 people at the University of Texas. It’s common for delusional mentally ill people to resonate with anti-authoritarian movements. They generally feel powerless and they focus their rage at highly visible successful people like politicians or entertainers. They act alone for the most part and leave behind rambling justifications for their acts. Travis Bickle, the fictional Taxi Driver in the 1976 film, exemplifies this and of course, as life later imitated art, was the inspiration for the attempt on the life of Ronald Reagan by John Hinckley.

    I think Sunday is AC’s fetus skeet shooting day….”BLAM! Pull!….Blam!”

    Remember?

  20. That’s right. I remember AC bragging about shooting babies a couple of years ago. How fitting that he do it on Sunday.

  21. I almost hate to admit it, but I can follow the line of reasoning in the second video. It’s certainly not Tea-Party type stuff, though it tacitly mentions a gold standard. It’s all paranoid stuff. It all boils down to he thinks everything is just made up. If you can create one arbitrary unit, then you can create a second or a third to take it’s place. Whether it’s the arbitrary assignment of a year number, the arbitrary arrangement of government, or the arbitrary value of a currency. It’s all made up, therefore it’s a lie, & if everyone agrees to go along with the lie, then the creator of the lie is the mind controller. I think his fascination with gold & silver is simply that it truly exists rather than being a mind controlling lie. I think there is a greater possibility that this dude thought he was trapped in The Matrix than he ever gave a rat’s ass about the Tea Party.

  22. Mr. Shirt, this is what I mean by Loughner being a psychotic. Probably many people have thoughts like that at one time or another. In most cases they turn to philosophy or religion, or just move to more productive obsessions. Only someone with serious mental problems uses the realization that the world is a construct of language as an excuse to commit mass murder. If Gifford’s opponent had won last November and been at the meeting in her place, Loughner would have shot him. I don’t see how anyone on the left can deny this.
