Legal Insurrection has been following the media /left distortion of the shooter's motivation in the Arizona atrocity. The effort to blame Palin/Limbaugh/heated rhetoric is preposterous.
It is becoming clear that Loughner had a longstanding delusional hatred of Congresswoman Giffords, as this interview with Loughner's close friend in Mother Jones reveals:
Tierney tells Mother Jones in an exclusive interview that Loughner held a years-long grudge against Giffords and had repeatedly derided her as a "fake." Loughner's animus toward Giffords intensified after he attended one of her campaign events and she did not, in his view, sufficiently answer a question he had posed, Tierney says. He also describes Loughner as being obsessed with "lucid dreaming"-that is, the idea that conscious dreams are an alternative reality that a person can inhabit and control-and says Loughner became "more interested in this world than our reality." Tierney adds, "I saw his dream journal once. That's the golden piece of evidence. You want to know what goes on in Jared Loughner's mind, there's a dream journal that will tell you everything." ....
Tierney, who's also 22, recalls Loughner complaining about a Giffords event he attended during that period . He's unsure whether it was the same one mentioned in the charges-Loughner "might have gone to some other rallies," he says-but Tierney notes it was a significant moment for Loughner: "He told me that she opened up the floor for questions and he asked a question. The question was, 'What is government if words have no meaning?'"
Many are dating the grudge back to the 2007 campaign event, as evidenced by a letter found in Loughner's safe, which means the hatred of Giffords pre-dated not only Sarah Palin's appearance on the national stage, but the health care debate and other issues the media falsely is portraying as the cause.Our mainstream media is so corrupt and biased it almost is beyond belief.
