Loughner, Alleged Shooter in Giffords Attack, Described by Classmate as "Left-Wing Pothead" ^ | January 8, 2010 | Phoenix New Times

Posted on 01/10/2011 5:27:41 AM PST by lbryce

A classmate of the man accused of shooting Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords this morning describes him as "left wing" and a "pot head" in a series of posts on Twitter this afternoon.

Caitie Parker did not immediately respond to our request for an interview, but her "tweets" in the hours after the shooting paint a picture of Jared Loughner as a substance-abusing loner who had met Giffords before the shooting. She says, Loughner described the congresswoman as "stupid and unintelligent."

We've confirmed that Parker and Loughner went to school together at Mountain View High School in Tucson and that both attended Pima Community College, so her claims of knowing Loughner seem to be legit.

Parker "tweets" that she and Loughner were in the band together and were friends until 2007 when he became "reclusive" after getting alcohol poisoning and dropping out of college.

She describes him as "quite liberal" and as a "political radical."

Below is a log of "tweets" posted by Parker beginning around the time of the shooting.

Left-wing pothead? Well, that does explain a lot of things.

Freepers had this info on Saturday and posted it Sunday. The press is just now catching up because their right-wing smear isn't working.

Don’t fall into the same trap the DNC and its minions have fallen.

They politicized the tragedy in the most heinous, vicious way possible.

The are trying to make this into Obama’s OK moment, but have 1) no comparison to the carnage, 2) once again shown the moderates and Indies that they are for the left and power at any price, not for the citizens, 3) Obama’s moment has come and gone. Monday is too late, for him to bandage this.

The DNC once again overplayed its hand.

Don’t do this on the right.

Is twitter and tweeting from a miniminded exclassmate a reliable source? She sounds, by her vocabulary, like the equivalent of a Valley Girl. The shooter was likely used by the left to create another useful crises, since he is, from all observable information, soft in the head too.

This guy is just plain nuts. Yeah there are a few things he talks about that sound rightwing, but he throws in just as much leftwing with it. Pot smoker, flag burner, atheist, lucid dreaming and other new age stuff.

It all comes out as a jumbled mess, bits and pieces of ideas that have no coherence or cohesiveness. There is no logic that any sane person can see, and I dare anyone to make any sense of it.

Obama’s Angry Rhetoric:

Obama: “They Bring a Knife…We Bring a Gun”

Obama to His Followers: “Get in Their Faces!”

Obama on ACORN Mobs: “I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!”

Obama to His Mercenary Army: “Hit Back Twice As Hard”

Obama on the private sector: “We talk to these folks… so I know whose ass to kick.“

Obama to voters: Republican victory would mean “hand to hand combat”

Obama to lib supporters: “It’s time to Fight for it.”

Obama to Latino supporters: “Punish your enemies.”

Obama to democrats: “I’m itching for a fight.”

Obama to Followers: “And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them…”

Obama Speech (2x) : … "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, endowed with certain inalienable rights: life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." Drops Creator.

Obama smoked dope and openly admits it.

Obama’s friend Bill Ayers: Stomps on the American Flag and bombs buildings.

Lougher’s Angry Views:

He went to some far-left high school funded by Ø and Ayers.

He was anti-religious, atheiest, was pissed the military gave him a “mini-bible”.

He LOVED reading Karl Marx, Adolph Hitler.

He supported and engaged in burning the flag.

He was a chronic dope smoker.

His first victim was a Bush-appointed Judge.

His second victim was a Blue Dog Dem.

His 3rd victim was a child born on 9-11.

He was a 9-11 truther, like Van Jones, Obama Czar.

He believed both the Mars Rover and Space shuttles were faked.

Sounds like an Øbamunist.
