Great Moments in "Psychologically Disturbed" Gunmen Committing Mass Murder
Note: This is satire designed to show the ludicrous nature of the media coverage on the Ft. Hood issue. It is not designed to trivialize a terrible event but to make people understand better what happened and how the event is being dangerously distorted.]
By Barry Rubin
When John Wilkes Booth opened fire on President Abraham Lincoln in Fords Theatre in April 1865, the media was puzzled. True, the actor was outspoken in his Confederate sympathies and viewed himself as a Southerner, said someone who knew him, but that was no reason he might want Lincoln to be dead. The day before he went on his shooting spree, Booth hoisted a big Confederate flag outside his hotel room. After he leaped onto the stage he shouted, "Thus ever to tyrants!" the motto of the rebel state of Virginia.
The New York Times reported that Booth was psychologically unstable and was frightened of the Civil War coming to an end and having to face a peacetime actors surplus. His political views had nothing to do with the motives for this tragic act, it said, quoting experts.
After Fritz Reichmark opened fire on fellow soldiers at Fort Dix in January 1942 the media was puzzled. True, he used to go to German-American Bund meetings, said one fellow soldier, but he only wore the swastika armband in his off-hours. Reichmark would regale other soldiers with diatribes against the Jews, Winston Churchill, and Communists. The day before he went on his shooting spree, Reichmark gave out copies of Mein Kampf to neighbors. Soldiers who survived reported he was shouting "Heil Hitler!" while firing at them.

Let me remind all concerned that this article is clearly labeled SATIRE.
Great work by Rubin , there Psion, Thanks for posting it.
Fox news should be all over this.
Satire is born from the paradox of truth. The problem within this epoch of confusion is created in support of enemies foreign and domestic allied against the American Citizenry. Beginning with the political class and friends of government to destroy the peoples freedoms, constitution and way of life for neo-HomoLeninism and Power. This can be seen through a prism of selective cognoscente filtering, reporting of the facts and tactics of deliberant avoidance plus the paralysis of political corruption. A clear example is that of swastika bad, star & crescent good; all the while ignoring both ideologies as being identical, which is why both groups were allies outside Europe during WWII. One is gone, the second, is being promoted as a tool, ultimately for the goal of subjugation and domination. Further, there are those by way of identity politics which believe they are exempt from the end result.
