Skip to comments.Sanitizing Adam Lanza

Amid all its political correctness and ideological distortion, one thing often overlooked concerning the mainstream media is its essential strangeness, its near-total separation from any behavior, attitudes, or ideas that could be defined as "normal".
We find yet another example of this in the treatment of Adam Lanza, the Newtown CT shooter. A photograph released by the wire services reveals a delicate-looking kid with a shy smile and a goofy haircut.
The standard reader's reaction would amount to a shake of the head and a "what could have made such a nice kid do it?"
But there's another photo extant as well, one that has not seen such wide circulation:
Apart from the fact that it would scare the hell out of Hannibal Lector, this shot leaves no doubt as to "why he did it": because he was as crazy as they come.
This stratagem involving photographs immediately calls to mind the Zimmerman shooting, when the media released, and heavily played up, photos showing Trayvon Martin as a sweet-faced twelve-year-old rather than the hulking seventeen-year-old tough faced by George Zimmerman.
Given the leftist slant of the media, using that shot made sense. The media circus surrounding that shooting was intended to create a racial incident, to keep the pot boiling in light of the upcoming electoral campaign. That photo did its work well -- most people still picture Trayvon Martin as the innocent twelve-year-old as opposed to the drug-addled teen he became.
But what are we to make of this Lanza photo?

I suspect the MSM's motives for ignoring Adam's recent picture might lie in the fact that Sheeple would be more reluctant to support the Libtard agenda if they knew that this bat crazy loon had slipped through the state's existing worse than worthless mental health safety net ... and violated several existing gun grabbing laws ... when he stole his mother's weapons ... opened up on people who were totally incapable of defending themselves ... and then blew his brains out when he heard the cops pull up ...
... but all that's just a wild guess on my part.
Asperger's is a brain disease...as is schizophrenia.
The GOP is in a raison d’etre crisis, sure, but the same is happening to the MSM.
If, per Zimmerman shooting they’re CONSTANTLY lying with old photos, then WHY should ANYONE pay attention to them..?
The GOP will be gone, and so, too, will the MSM.
This kid Lanza must’ve had quite a few spare magazines to shoot as many people as he did, multiple times! The reporters say he only used the two handguns he got from around the house ... go figure ...
Who’s the fellow on the right?
The kid also resembles Edvard Munch’s “The Scream.”
Always the crazy eyes. Vacant souless staring right through a person like they aren’t even there.
H. P. Lovecraft, horror author.

I’ve seen quite a few leftists that have that stare in their eyes.
Wonder if he saw THE TERMINATOR before he went on his raid.
Is that photoshopped? Doesn’t he normally use his middle finger in photos to be released to the American public?
He looks psycho in both shots. Check out the sadistic grin. I feel sorry for Mom, she had to deal with that little demon every day.
Obama cares so much that he has grown extra tear ducts on the outer corners of his eyes.
Or else he is so narcisistic that the concept of crying for others is too foreign to be faked properly.
Looks like he was living in Castle Greyskull.
Is this his most recent picture at about the 4:20 mark:
stupid article in my opinion.. there is nothing scary or creepy about the second photo... he is older in the second photo, so there is no child-like sweetness... it looks like a dorky school picture—and come on, those hardly turn out nicely for any body... it’s a bad photo, but it reveals nothing... other than that the photographer took a bad shot...
