Skip to comments.DHS Memo Suggests Shooter May Be Linked To Racist Organization
Posted on 01/09/2011 7:56:53 AM PST by winoneforthegipper
According to a memo obtained by Fox News with information compiled by the Department of Homeland Security and released to state law enforcement officials, Jared Loughner, the alleged shooter of Congressman Gabrielle Giffords, may have been influenced by a pro-white racist organization that publishes an anti-immigration newsletter.
No direct connection, but strong suspicion is being direceted at American Renaissance, an organization that Loughner mentioned in some of his internet postings and federal law enforcement officials are investigating Loughner's possible links to the organization. The organization is a monthly publication that promotes a variety of white racial positions.
Further, the suspect's mother works for the Pime County Board of Supervisors.

I have read a few of his rants on Abovetopsecret.
I didn’t see anything about immigration though I did see something about eating a chicken pot pie in the voting booth with a Spanish option.
He was more about hating NASA.
I’m guessing that to whoever found this, pro-white = racist. Of course, the same would never be said of the NAACP or La Raza.
The other side of the Rev. Wright coin.
“Above Top Secret” is racist?
May have? great reporting and posting.
How about he was a supporter of Nancy Pelosi I find that to be interesting and factual?
The Feds are going to work overtime trying to distance him from the dailyKos and the radicals that live at that site.
American Renaissance? Never heard of it. I wonder why the state run “media”, including FNC, keep trying to blame it on Sarah Palin and the TEA Party.
Time to gin up the vast right wing conspiracy meme.
This will only further incite left wing loons
Maybe this event will be a catalyst for a civil war between the have's and have-not's (aka, parasitic inner-city gang-bangers living off others).
I’ve been on Free Republic more than 12 years, as well as a consumer of all kinds of information from the internet and elsewhere, and I have never in my life heard of an organization called “American Renaissance.” Of course I’m not a crazy, schizophrenic nutcase community college student who’s mommy is a local bigwig, so I’m probably behind the curve on this one.
Wonder what Party his Mother belongs to?
They wouldn't want him linked to that kind of radicalism, now would they.
They will go on a bloody feeding frenzy trying to eliminate any possible connection with this shooter and any islamic thought, comment or connection.
I think their was another person goading him along, pushing an anti Semitic fury and a hate against Christianity.
Obviously only one cult on earth comes to mind.
Oh no, the race card this early???
Yeah....safe to say he was pretty much a loose cannon.
They are a pretty nasty front group for the National Front. They verge on anarchists.
Oh yeah, great, let’s pull the race factor in. Whose idea was this, Eric Holder’s?
Forget all his Leftist hobbies like Nazism,Communism,Flag burning and shooting a pro-2nd Amendment BLUE DOG Democrat.
Yeah that was the nugget I took out of this. Sheriff Dumbo really stuck out like a sore thumb in yesterday’s press conference. So I have been trying to gain more knowledge on the local political angle more than anything.
Something is rotten in Denmark.
Enter Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson stage right (The Traveling
To the media: HE IS INSANE!
And so it begins...for Obama’s re-election campaign. He needs race to be the main theme to take the focus off of his failed fundamental transformation of America.
Eric Holder told us that we “are a nation of cowards” when it comes to race. I’m sure Bill Ayres and Pat Hayden have some forged “writings” that have been planted linking them to the shooter to exacerbate race relations.
Now that's important.
If they don’t mention her party in the article, she has to be a dem.
If she were a republican that would be headline news this morning.
Rep. Giffords was for strong border enforcement, so it wouldn’t make sense from that angle.
U.S. REP. GABRIELLE GIFFORDS STATEMENT [April 2010] ON ARIZONAS NEW IMMIGRATION LAW AND THE NEED TO SECURE OUR BORDER
Arizona is now known around the world for enacting an extreme immigration law in response to the federal governments failure to act. This law does nothing to secure our border. My hope is that the events that have unfolded in Phoenix recently are a wake-up call to Washington politicians who for too long have refused to take seriously their responsibility to address the crisis on our border.
The people of Arizona are angry and so am I. Southern Arizona, in particular, has paid a heavy price because of drug smuggling and illegal immigration. But even with the changes enacted by the Legislature Thursday night, this law will do nothing to make the communities I represent safer from smugglers and the dangerous spill-over effects of border violence.
In the face of mounting criticism including serious questions raised by prominent Republicans such as Jeb Bush, Lindsey Graham and Tom Tancredo the Legislature hastily modified some aspects of the bill that Gov. Jan Brewer signed into law last week. These changes, however, fail to address the concerns of local law enforcement officials about the cost and practicality of enforcing this policy. The changes also do nothing to address the concerns that the law could jeopardize the rights of American citizens. In addition, the potentially devastating impact this law could have on Arizonas economy just as we are beginning to emerge from the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression is a reality that must be avoided at all costs.
Passage of this law is a stark reminder that securing our border is a responsibility that the federal government must confront with the full extent of its resources.
In the days after the tragic murder of Cochise County rancher Rob Krentz, I called for a series of immediate steps that the federal government must take to secure our border. They are:
Deploy the National Guard
Put more Border Patrol agents on the ground
Establish Border Patrol forward operating bases
Make greater use of new high-tech surveillance systems
Improve cell phone reception so law enforcement agencies and rural residents can communicate with each other
I repeatedly have called on President Obama and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to implement these measures. I do so again today.
University of Arizona President Robert Shelton noted on Thursday that because of the states new immigration law, the families of a number of out-of-state students have informed the university that they are changing their plans and will be sending their children to universities in other states. Sadly, all them are honors students. I agree with President Shelton when he says these withdrawals should distress anyone who cares about attracting the best and brightest students to Arizona.
The point made by President Shelton highlights what might be the most egregious aspect of Arizonas new immigration law: its divisiveness. Our state has thrived on its ability to attract new residents, businesses and visitors from around the world. Our cities and towns have long-benefitted from the influx of those seeking new opportunities. This law stands in direct contradiction to our past and, as a result, threatens our future
They advertise a Tea Party affiliation on their website... not good.
This was just discussed on Fox. The American Renaissance Founder (Jared Taylor) was interviewed by James Rosen (via phone). He said, “That is complete nonsense. I have absolutely no idea what DHS is talking about. We have never used the term ‘ZOG’. We have never thought in those terms.” He added, “If this is the level of research we are getting from DHS than heaven help us”. American Renaissance went back 20 years and have no record of Jared Loughnerâ ever subscribing to their publication or attending any events.
There are several of these ‘front groups’ that try to put on legitimate faces to hide or get in the door of normal society to influence them. They have fronts on both the right and the left. (for example, the National Front actually has ties with La Raza- both would like nothing more than to have racially separate sections of the country that ‘do not mix.)
But her husband was an Astronaut, she was on the Armed Services Committee (Jared had been rejected by the military)
and apparently her husband was on the mission that saw the UFO.
I got this from reading the abovetopsecret site so not sure how much is true.
But that is a possible angle on this.
Loughner was very anti NASA.
The mod pulled my post with the amren link.
Do not post any links to racist organizations.
He said that he had never heard of Loughner until yesterday, and they checked their subscriber list, going back 20 years and the attendee roles at its events and they have no record of Jared Loughner ever subscribing to their publications or attending those events.
Of course, if Loughner placed a link to their website anywhere on his facebook page, or even placed on his facebook page a link that links to a page that has a link to them, then he's "linked" with them, and because they're associated with "the right," why, they are Sarah Palin herself.
It is definitely the same author as the YouTube page of Jared Lee Loughner and, no doubt about it, he is a complete nutjob.
Makes no sense whatsoever.
That’s what this shooter appears to be. An anarchist. That’s a long way from the TEA Party. He’s closer to the DNC, La Raza and immigrant “advocacy” groups.
AmRen is not welcome on FR, hasn’t been for some time. Please restrict posts about AmRen to their responses to the allegation that the perp was one of them. Thanks.
If the memo is a legit DHS memo, it looks like the gov’t B.S. set-up of the Tea Party is beginning.
How much longer before they blame it on Rush?
sorry, I thought people should look at it for clues before it got scrubbed.
Understood... I had never heard of them until this thread.
didn’t DHS warn us about home-grown terrorists—and how the agency needed to keep them under investigation...guess Sec’y Incompetano’s good luck just expired...where is she anyway???
I would like to see where he linked to them and in what context.
Why aren’t they talking about his Communists links???
Ah, but FReepers, ever vigilant, have grabbed screen shots for posterity.
Too late for the lefties to cover that up. :)
