I found this YouTube channel under the shooters name, Jared Laughner. Note: I do not know if this is the same person, but he lists both the ‘Communist Manifesto’ and ‘Mein Kampf’ in his list of favorite books.His Myspace page has just been removed… (Continues here)

Screen grab from shooter Jared Laughner's MySpace site


The police have named a suspect in the shooting of Gabriel Giffords, Jared Loughner. A person under that name has a YouTube account that includes suggestions of anti-government political views.
""You don't have to accept hte federalist laws," the video above says; it also insists on the gold and silver standard, talks of revolution, and suggests that the government is imposing "mind control and brainwash on the people by controlling grammar."

His linked MySpace page, no longer available, included statements about the gold standard and about SWAT teams paying for their equipment with illegal currency.

Among his long list of favorite books in his YouTube profile is Mein Kampf.
Loughner also "favorited" just one video on YouTube, which shows the burning of an American flag and is accompanied by an anti-government screed. A sample from that screed:

Jackie Storrer, right, tries her best to figure out the clues on a giant crossword as Jared Loughner, a volunteer, stands in the background during the Tucson Festival of Books.

HillBuzz is documenting the way that Daily Kos is scrubbing their website of a thread about how Giffords is "dead" to them, where just about every commenter uses the word "dead" in relation to her. One commenter, named "boyblue" stands out. It wouldn't shock me if there were a connection.

Seriously -- check out HillBuzz. They are documenting the whole thing and saving everything in sight. Two people have already died, including a little kid. Kos has scrubbed information that WILL be required in a murder investigation. They will be in a world of hurt -- and it's repulsive that their first instinct was to delete the thread, a thread that was pretty much one gigantic death threat against a woman who was or was nearly shot to death two days later.

Also ... um, funny how it was a chick congresscritter who attracted so much wrath, wasn't it? The left is getting more and more murderous over their desire to erase all women in government.

HillBuzz is a little Far Right for me -- they seem to have gone straight over the fence to the Taxes Are Evil side of things, which isn't me by a long shot (old school FDR liberal here, NOT "progressive" by any means).

But it has definitely struck me that Leftist Dude Nation is furious and frustrated with a (black) male president and an administration that has been, with the exception of Pelosi, almost exclusively male.

And who do they put in their literal crosshairs? A (white) woman. And who gets the instant blame for it? Two white women, Pelosi and Palin. (Palin! Please!)

The 2008 misogyny fest just whetted their appetites for female blood. As far as Leftist Dude Nation is concerned, it's war on the bitches. If you can't vote `em out of office, cheat `em out of office. If you can't cheat `em out of office, shoot `em out.

I can't pretend this isn't uppermost in my mind here, even if more people, including one male judge and one little kid, were killed. Giffords was the main target. I am fucking sick and tired of being expected to act like I haven't noticed this. Sure, there's some nutjobs that go against this, but if you had to bet your 401k in either direction, which would you choose?
