I’m able to control every belief and religion by being the mind controller!
So asserts Jared Loughner in a posted YouTube video. Loughner is the suspect in a heinous shooting spree which critically wounded Democratic Representative Gabrielle Giffords and killed Federal District Judge John M. Roll and four others, including a 9-year-old girl. A total of 19 people were shot.
Commentators replying to the FOX news story have already set the tone sure to follow, blaming the incident on the Tea Party, conservative pundits, and Republicans. Sarah Palin has been singled out for responsibility. However, what little we learn of Loughner through a cursory examination of his YouTube channel indicates an irrational mind adhering to no particular ideology. In short, he’s out to lunch.
In conclusion, reading the second United States Constitution, I can’t trust the government because of the ratifications: The government is implying mind control and brain wash on the people by controlling grammar.
No! I won’t pay debt with a currency that’s not backed by gold and silver!
No! I won’t trust in God!
Mind control? Brain wash? Controlling the grammar? Does this sound like an articulate political manifesto, or the rantings of a madman?
This video is my introduction to you! My favorite activity is conscience dreaming; the greatest inspiration for my political business information. Some of you don’t dream – sadly.
Among Loughner’s pet peeves is what he perceives to be the illiteracy of the populace. He rants about the importance of grammar while failing to properly use it.
If I have my civil rights, then this message wouldn’t have happen.
A video favorited by Loughner entitled America: Your Last Memory In A Terrorist Country!, which is described with grammatical peculiarities indicative of Loughner, shows a U.S. flag planted in the ground while Drowning Pool’s “Let the Bodies Hit the Floor” plays as a soundtrack. During the course of the seven minute video, a masked figure cloaked in a brown hoodie and what looks to be a skirt made from a garbage bag slowly stalks into frame and makes his way to the flag. The figure stands ominously alongside the flag before lighting it on fire.
When’s the last time we saw a flag-burning at a Tea Party rally? When’s the last time we heard Republicans endorse the description of America as “a terrorist country?” Such statements and actions would be viewed as sacrilegious by most conservatives.
Lougher is not a Tea Partier. He is not a conservative. If anything, his favorite books indicate a sympathy with the left. Regardless, he is a moonbat. He is crazy. He is a man alone. Efforts to portray him otherwise at this early point in the story’s development, to indict anyone other than Loughner for his actions, are informed not by evidence or reason, but disingenuous political opportunism taking unconscionable advantage of a fresh tragedy.
