Guy Who Shot at White House Lived in Occupy DC Camp (Surprise, surprise)
Rush Limbaugh.com ^ | November 17, 2011 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 11/17/2011 11:39:37 AM PST by Kaslin

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: It's not just the milling around stage of the Occupy Wall Street day of action. It's the milling around stage while the media tries to find a way to pin the Tea Party on this shooter at the White House. They're trying to find out who this guy is, said he never had any known radical ties. Really? What's he doing at Occupy DC? They're doing everything they can. It was once reported the guy hated Obama but now he just hates government. And they're doing everything they can to try to find a way to pin this guy on the Tea Party.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: I mentioned earlier, ladies and gentlemen, desperately trying to figure out who the White House shooter is, who is this guy. They know his name. They know he's from Idaho. They previously stated he hated Obama, now that's been revised to he hates government. So this morning on CNN, American Morning cohost and El Rushbo media stalker Carol Costello spoke with their correspondent, Athena Jones, about alleged White House shooter Oscar Ramiro Ortega Hernandez. And Costello said, "Authorities say that he had a direct interest in the president. This morning the suspected White House shooter is in custody. Oscar Ramiro Ortega Hernandez was arrested yesterday. The gun linked to him was found near the White House along with two bullets on the South Lawn. Any word on his motivation?"

JONES: Well, it's interesting. We hope that more of that will come out as well, maybe not today but in the coming days. As you mentioned, authorities have interviewed family and friends and they've determined that Ortega Hernandez had what they're calling a direction of interest toward the president and the White House. It sounds a little awkward, but others simplified it as saying he was obsessed with the president. Hopefully we'll find out more.

RUSH: Yeah, and what they're hoping to find out is that he's actually a Tea Partier. That's what they're hoping. That's why they're waiting. That's why they're saying, "We can't find any evidence this guy's ever been involved in radical --" they only found him as part of Occupy DC running around with a weapon, an AK-47. But they can't find out where this guy's come from and what he's all about and what his motivation is. They're just hoping, they're praying, any link whatsoever to the Tea Party they can drum up, and they will stop the presses. In fact, remember what they tried to do with the guy that shot Gabby Giffords. Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, tried all that. They'll try the same thing here with this guy. That's what they're waiting on.

Of course the MSM are desperate to excuse this guy as a ‘fringe’ nutcase with no connection to the OWS gangs or, as Rush stated, find a way to link him somehow, some way, to the TEA party. I doubt that’s going to happen. More likely, once he is tried and, if convicted, sentenced, we’ll never hear about this guy again.

I would love to see pics of this Oscar Ortega from 6 months to a year ago. Does he always dress in a zillion layers of clothes and have an unruly beard? Uhh, that picture kinda looks like he’s been camping out in the cold. Jeez, where else are there a bunch of 20-somethings wearing layers of clothes camping out in the cold?

They are going to charge him with attempted assassination of the President or a cabinet member?

The White House shooter is a strange fellow. He was at the OWS and believes that Obama is the antichrist.

Total nutjob.

This happened in 1994 when Clinton was in office and it was caught on video. The media was silent as to the motive in that as well. In fact I don’t even remember seeing the video until someone found it yesterday on youtube.

And Rush has also reported on how Newsbusters has coverage of an Occupy rally where the crowd wanted to have a moment to express solidarity with the White House shooter and the White House.

The MSM is staying away from this like the plague - but the coverage won’t stay hidden for long.

First fit the MSM goals. So Pravda kills it.

What about the Berkely shooter from the same day? Another crazy occupier?

Left also says “mentally ill” for their loons. And “right wing shooter” if it’s one from the right. Mentally ill for the “burn down Macy’s” guy. Typical Tea Patier for the crazy in the crowd with a sign.

“Occupation” is not part of the right to assemble. Our city even made a deal with these law breakers.

And yet one unproven and uncorroborated allegation of a racial slur was enough to paint the entire Tea Party movement as RACIST!!

Another article said that the shooter thought that Obama was the Antichrist.

The shooter is insane.

Watched that video. Had never seen it before. Gees, right at the end someone has abandoned a baby in a stroller and it goes rolling across the sidewalk and stops by hitting a parked (car?).

“So you’re telling me that Obama ISN’T the AntiChrist?”

I will stick with the rational view that Obama is not the Antichrist and that the shooter is insane.

I hate to defend the guy, but believing that 0bama is the anti-Christ does not make him a nut job.

Sure it does.

It's one thing to Photoshop pictures of people you disagree with to make them look silly or menacing. Political cartoonists have been doing that for eons. Satire and symbolic rhetoric is perfectly normal.

Once you start thinking that your political opponents are actually supernatural monsters, it's time to up your meds.

Historically, most of the assassinations of public officials have been from people associated with leftist causes. (”Most” does not mean “all.”) This guy fits the mold in that his mental illness found alliance with leftist causes. Not that I’ll hear THAT on NPR this afternoon on the way home. LOL

I think this shooter is why the liberals are finally cracking down on these illegal squatters.

Day 48 Of The FReepathon
Do you Know Why?

There are loyal posters that donate every FReepathon. Some donate several times during every 'thon. But others never donate. Why?

1 My enemies haven't been zotted.
2 The owner doesn't support my candidate.
3 FR won't "upgrade" to "Like" buttons and blinky crap.
4 Someone else will donate.
5 My friend was zotted.
6 I lost my job and have no income.

Only one of those is a legitimate reason.

Support It Or Lose It

And Ron Paul could be a space alien, who’s to say he’s not?

I do not know, but it is said by those who have seen or been abducted by space aliens they seem to have one common trait...

at least one deformed eyebrow.

The regime wants to lock him up and silence him quickly so he can't reveal his Occupier status.
