Leaked govt memo: Shooter may be linked to hate group
By Liz Goodwin
29 mins ago

According to a leaked memo obtained by Fox News, the Department of Homeland Security is looking into the possibility that suspected shooter Jared Loughner was linked to a white supremacist group called American Renaissance, or AmRen.

AmRen founder Jared Taylor, however, tells Fox he'd never heard of Loughner and that according to his group's records, Loughner never received AmRen publications. His group's events are all held on the East Coast, he said, far from Loughner's hometown of Tucson.

According to the memo, Loughner "is possibly linked to this group. (through videos posted on his myspace and YouTube account.)" The group is "anti government, anti immigration, anti ZOG (Zionist Occupational Government), anti Semitic," the memo said. (Taylor told Fox his group is not anti-Zionist.)

Both the group's anti-Semitic and anti-immigration leanings would not put Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in its favor. Giffords is the first female Jewish elected representative from Arizona. She also supports comprehensive immigration reform, and was opposed to Arizona's SB1070 law, though she also opposed the Obama administration challenging it in court.

They will get a Nobel prize for turning this homosexual new age anarchist into a right wing Christian mercenary.

Just my opinions of course.

They don’t care about the shooter, they want an excuse to get rid of conservatives. Period.

He may not have any links to “AmRen” but he does have one hell of a paper trail in the Tucson Public School system. The Feds might want to check into that. We have now banned the hate America classes in the Tucson public schools. They didn’t like it at all.

Has anyone figured if the shooter is a Leftist?

AmRen is non-violent and pro-Jewish.

They are the suit and tie, academic “race realist” crowd. Say what you want about his racial views, but Jared Taylor has never promoted violence against anyone.

The only demands this guy has ever made are to end immigration and affirmative action.

Why is Liz Goodman unjustly implicating this group of idiots?

How soon before the Democrat Party controlled media announces that Loughner was “linked” to Free Republic or the Heritage Foundation or to the Reagan Library? It’s amazing the amount of bilge the media is vomiting on the American public. And doing it so quickly too.

This is only the beginning. “Leaked” Government reports will have words,”may be likned to the TeaParty movement”, and “may be a follower of Rush Limbaugh.”

Xian @ #3,,

Here you go.

I found this list at JOM.

Why don’t people who are so intent on blaming things politicians have said for this tragedy ever mention rhetoric from Democrats and liberals including:

President Obama:

“If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Obama said in Philadelphia last night. “Because from what I understand, folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.”

And “I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors. I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face.”

Or John Kerry who said on the Bill Maher show: “I could have gone to 1600 Pennsylvania and killed the real bird with one stone.”

Or Howard Dean “I hate the Republicans and everything they stand for…”

and: “This is a struggle between good and evil and we’re the good?”

and “we need to remember that the enemy here is George Bush, not each other.”

Or Senator Chuck Schumer who called a flight attendant a “bitch.”

Or the Florida Democrats who ran an ad calling for the assassination of Donald Rumsfeld

Or New York State Comptroller Alan Hevesi who called for Senator Schumer to “put a bullet between the president’s eyes?”

Or Jonathan Chait who said “I hate President George W. Bush.”

Or singer Rickie Lee Jones who aid of President Bush “You’re an ignorant, low-class, opportunistic man, both personally and politically, who does everything for political gain and nothing for the wellbeing of the people, and you should not be in office, and the kind of fascism you’re perpetrating on our country we don’t want, and you’re out. We’re done with you. Ffffhgggmm.”

And when asked if she would be willing to take Bush out for the benefit of democracy? “If I say that, I might get arrested when I go back. And I have to go home.” She’s thinking it out carefully. “I guess the question is, would I kill anyone? And the answer is, no. But would I feel sorry if someone killed him? No, I wouldn’t. It would depend on who killed him, I guess.”

Or “The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn” where they superimposed the words “Snipers Wanted” over an image of Bush delivering his acceptance speech at the Republican convention.

Or Nobel Peace Prize winner Betty Williams who said she could kill President Bush?

Or Randi Rhodes who joked about killing the President?

Or Reverend Wright who called Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice, Condoskeeza [sic] Rice.

Or England’s Charlie Brooker who wrote: “On November 2, the entire civilised world will be praying, praying Bush loses. And Sod’s law dictates he’ll probably win, thereby disproving the existence of God once and for all. The world will endure four more years of idiocy, arrogance and unwarranted bloodshed, with no benevolent deity to watch over and save us. John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, John Hinckley Jr – where are you now that we need you?”

They will look like fools of course because initial reports have the shooter as having no religion, no belief in God. But they will try to fix all to fit their agenda. It is sad that a Fox News commentator said tea parties very early on. With the Fort Hood shooter the media and Obama ordered a hush on who he was.

For this, they will make up what they want.

The AMREN link is BS. Bet it was pulled out of some DHS apparatchik's butt for the purpose of hanging this on right wingers.

There has not been time for a forensic analysis of the Perp's computer.

It’s pretty funny how even “right wing” Fox News is getting in on the smear against American Renaissance. They’re even quoting the SPLC to do so.

I thought it was the Tea Party and Sarah Palin that were behind it.
