  1. New development.

    The feds are reportedly probing whether shooting suspect Jared Lee Loughner has ties to an anti-Semitic, anti-government hate group that has ads for tea party organizations on its website.

    A Department of Homeland Security memo quoted by Fox News says the agency is looking into whether Loughner is “possibly linked” to the fanatical group American Renaissance.

    The group promotes views that are “anti-government, anti-immigration, anti-ZOG (Zionist Occupation Government), anti-Semitic,” the memo says.

    It’s not immediately clear that Loughner is actually a member.

    Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, the target of Loughner’s firing frenzy, is “the first Jewish female elected to such a high position in the U.S. government. She was also opposite the group’s ideology when it came to immigration debate,” according the memo.

    The group’s website features what appear to be paid advertisements for tea party versions of the “don’t tread on me” flag.
  2. I mentioned in previous posts that Mein Kampf being one of his favorite books as well as him having no contact with his far left friends after Obama was elected was a major clue,as well as shooting a Jewish democrat

    To the right wingers on the site a far left classmate/friend that had no contact with him in 4 years is their proof that he was a far leftist and they repeat it in every post
  3. Hello


    This is still speculation at this point on the part of the feds, all we know for sure which is based on evidence is that Jared Loughner was a far left nut job.
  4. Range Rover: you're dealing with in some cases outright thugs (Lucrum), in other cases just folks who don't have the moral courage to simply say the obvious: the overheated rhetoric of the right has claimed its first victim.
    The judge who was killed, while he wasn't the target, still had received threats due to his actions on the bench, which were related to immigration. Those threats were a direct result of talk radio stirring up the pot.
    The sheriff of that county knows more than the cowards and thugs posting here. His words were direct and to the point.
  5. So initial forensic evidence from Loughner's computer is not good enough evidence but a tweet from one of his former classmate who haven't met in four years is much more reliable??
  6. Hello


    Where does your article say anything about evidence???

  7. I agree trefoil
  8. I read multiple sources to confirm the report, didn't notice that politico left that bit out.

    "The DHS memo called the group American Renaissance "anti-government, anti-immigration, anti-ZOG (Zionist Occupational Government), anti-Semitic." The information reportedly came as Loughner's computer and personal effects were searched in the shooting investigation."

    So he turned out to be an anti-semite?

    Typical liberal. Clearly a leftist assassin like all the others before.

    The same feds that won't prosecute black panther intimidation at voting precincts or want to prosecute an American who recently killed an illegal immigrant/drug dealer/pedophile?
    Shouldn't we wait to find out or is the left so desperate to cover up the KNOWN left leanings of the shooter they're willing to jump on anything that might indicate the contrary?
