Climate Of Weird

There is evidence that John Bedell, yesterday’s Pentagon shooter, was there to P get the “truth” about 9/11:

Signs emerged that Bedell harbored ill feelings toward the government and the armed forces, and had questioned the circumstances behind the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

In an Internet posting, a user by the name JPatrickBedell wrote that he was “determined to see that justice is served” in the death of Marine Col. James Sabow, who was found dead in the backyard of his California home in 1991. The death was ruled a suicide but the case has long been the source of theories of a cover up…The user named JPatrickBedell wrote the Sabow case was “a step toward establishing the truth of events such as the September 11 demolitions.”

If there’s one thing I’ve learned from Dusty Trice, the City Pages and the Southern Poverty Law Center, it’s that even the most tenuous intellectual synchronicity is evidence of a shadowy undercurrent of hatred.

So – I believe the inflammatory remarks of Jesse Ventura and Minnesota “Progressive” Project’s Grace Kelly led to this shooting, and wonder when they’ll accept responsibility.

(Ever since I learned the technique of holding people responsible for things people who seem tangentially like them also happen to say, I find that I’m relieved of the usual burden of being responsible and accountable).

UPDATE:  Of course the leftyblog hamsters tried to tie Bedell to the Tea Parties. 

But no, he isn’t.  Or wasn’t:

It has become pretty clear pretty quickly that Bedell sufferred from Bush Derangement Syndrome, and was a 9/11 Truther, just like 35% of Democrats as of May 2007.

So we’ve got Bill Sparkmann, Major Hasan, John Bedell, the guy who crashed his plane into the IRS office – all of them who were seemingly driven to horrendous (and/or self-immolating) acts by the rhetoric of the left

Why, if I were a leftyblogger and the parties were reversed, I might be tempted to call it a “climate of hatred…”

  1. Lefty gets violent. Yawn. Dog bites man. Is this really all that unexpected given the kooky k-o-n-spiracies that are routine subject matter at Demo-U/G and Kos?

  2. At least he didn’y fly a plane into an office building like the last leftwing nutjob.

  3. Militant Libertarian?

    ” John Patrick Bedell, 36, armed with two nine millimeter semiautomatic weapons and had several magazines of ammunition, died after opening fire on two Pentagon police officers outside a Metro station. According to the latest news reports, his internet postings reveal that he was a libertarian, conspiracy theorist and part of the Ludwig von Mises Facebook group. The Ludwig von Mises Institute is a think tank that has a working relationship with Ron Paul and is headed by Paul’s former chief of staff, Lou Rockwell.”

  4. I know that it is too much to hope for . . . but do you think that there is even a small chance that Paul will run for prez as a third party candidate with Lyndon Larouche as his VP?

  5. This guy is a truther…how can the Party of Scrubs believe that no one has heard Mike Malloy spew accusations of collusion between Al Queda and GWB every night and Fat Ed Schulz repeating it every day?
