With all the media attention to Jared Lee Loughner, you might think you kind of know him by now.
Turns out you don't know shit. A ranter who goes under the name Poor Richard has a post about Loughner on his blog in which he says, among other things:
I have seen and evaluated the evidence and have come away with a very clear and unmistakable understanding of who this troubled maniac is and why he did what he did. My analysis contrasts sharply with that of the controlled press.One "media source", that being the wingnut NY Daily News. He also goes on a tirade about the books Loughner supposedly read (taken from the phony Facebook page that was put up by someone else posing as him), including The Communist Manifesto, Mein Kampf, Alice in Wonderland(!), etc etc etc. And then he makes this remarkable statement:
Jared Lee Loughner hated God and loved death. Loughner Is a Jewish Satan Worshipper.
According to one media source, Jared Lee Loughner is a Satan worshipper. New York’s Daily News published photos of a “Devil shrine” and altar found in the Loughner family’s back yard of their home in suburban Tucson.
Loughner Is a Jewish Liberal.
Loughner is a Liberal, Left-Winger.
Loughner Was Functionally IlliteratePretty amazing how he was able to read all those difficult books, isn't it?
And from there the criticism devolves into claiming that Heavy Metal rock music fried his brain, that Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison were Satanists, he hates god, blah blah blah. Oh, and he was also a pothead who tried to join the army so he could go kill somebody. Or something like that...
And I almost forgot. At the end of his diatribe, he launches into a harangue about, of all things, Buddhists!
A Hater of God With an Interest in BuddhismDamn those New Age Jewish Buddhists anyway. They are really the ones who are in control of the New World Ordure.
Let me for just a moment dwell on Jared Lee Loughner’s hatred of God. Several who knew him said that Jared was “hostile to religion.” We note that he did not list among his favorite books the Holy Bible. However, interestingly, he did name the Buddhist classic, Siddhartha. Siddhartha is the story of Gautama Buddha, the founder of the Buddhist religion.
Many Jews are attracted to Buddhism because it is a religion in which there is no personal deity in a place called Heaven. In Buddhism, an offshoot of Hinduism, the Cosmos is itself divine and when a man or woman dies, the best he or she can hope for is a better life in another incarnation, eventually leading to a state of nothingness called “Nirvana.” (Not surprisingly, one popular heavy metal music group called itself “Nirvana.”)
These concepts are strikingly similar to those taught by Jewish kabbalist rabbis. Menachem Begin, the bloody Jewish terrorist whose murderous activity with the Jewish Irgun Gang earned him so much popular support among Jews that he was elected Prime Minister of Israel, was a Buddhist who regularly practiced a Buddhist form of meditation.
Jared Lee Loughner’s interest in Buddhism, while simultaneously spouting he will not trust in a personal God, is common among Jews who are New Agers.
And here's the kicker:
It always comes down to this with the wingnuts, doesn't it. They're taking our guns away! Be afraid! Be very afraid!It may well be that in the future, anyone who opposes Obama Care, or Socialist bailouts to the international bankers, or increased taxes, or the unbridled growth of the federal government and the Police State, will be branded a “dangerous enemy of the state.” The Oklahoma City bombing proved to be a boon to the builders of the New World Order—haters of American traditionalism—as did the horror of Waco. Now, the despisers of God and enemies of the Constitution can cluck and talk about how “so and so might just be another Jared Lee Loughner.” (Incidentally, one observer on an internet chat page asked, “Isn’t it interesting how the media leaped to add the middle name “Lee” to Jared Loughner’s name? You know, like in Lee Harvey Oswald?” It does seem odd that a lot of the serial mass killers and assassins are psychologically dubbed with a middle name: John Wilkes Booth (Lincoln), Mark David Chapman (Lennon), Lee Harvey Oswald (JFK), John Wayne Gacy (33 boys), etc.I also suspect that the bigoted Jewish groups like AIPAC, the AJC, and the ADL will use the Jared Lee Loughner shooting incident for all its worth. At the least, these Jewish organizations and others will again attempt to bash the 2nd Amendment of our Bill of Rights, the right to keep and bear arms.
