  • Woman Who ID'd Arizona Shooter As Liberal Reflects On Experience (Media Not Happy With Description)

    01/28/2011 7:07:36 AM PST · by icwhatudo · 23 replies
    She calls the actions of CNN's Piers Morgan "scumbag" and thinks the media tried to put a "right spin" on the political leanings of the Arizona shooter. A key player in identifying the liberal background of the Arizona shooter, Jared Lee Loughner, has written about her experience. Caitie Parker, a former classmate, band-mate, and friend of Jared Lee Loughner, was one of the first to out Loughner's leftwing leanings. While the media was in full "blame Palin and the Tea Party" mode, Parker went to Twitter with her now famous "As I knew him he was left wing, quite liberal."...

    Like Rahm Emanuel, who didn't to waste a crisis, Frank Rich doesn't want to let a murderous rampage pass without trying to wring political advantage from it. By now, even most ardent liberals have had to admit that there was no nexus between conservatives and the manifestly psychotic AZ shooter. But there was Rich, in his New York Times column of this morning, still bitterly clinging to the accusation. To be sure, Rich recited some disclaimers that by now have become standard. But by unlucky paragraph 13, Rich could restrain himself no more. Fulminated Frank: "Much of last week’s televised...

    Don’t you love how the Left takes a warped twentysomething … Who went to a high school with curriculum crafted by Bill Ayers, - Whose favorite tomes include The Communist Manifesto and Mein Kampf, - Whose classmates describe him as a left-wing, weed-wafting, atheistic Beavis, - Who had a human skull altar erected in his backyard, - Whose hero list (according to Facebook) includes Barack Obama, … and somehow, they magically wiggle their nose, tug their ear, and stomp their feet and poof, abracadabra, this punk instantly morphs into Newt Gingrich?

  • The Last Honest Liberal-Caitie Parker (Friend of AZ Shooter)

    01/09/2011 2:32:27 AM PST · by icwhatudo · 68 replies
    Her name is Catie Parker and her 15 minutes of fame is upon her. She is a liberal and may have saved Sarah Palin and the Tea Party a huge amount of ill will in the wake of the Arizona shootings. She was the classmate and self described "really good friend" of the Arizona shooter Jared Lee Loughner. She was also in a band with him. Her comments have set the blog world and media on fire with her description that the shooter was "left wing, quite liberal". This flies in the face of the Palin/Tea Party connection narrative...

    "The Communist Manifesto" and Hitler's "Mein Kampf" were among the favorite reading materials of Jared Lee Loughner, the suspected gunmen in today's fatal shooting that reportedly left six dead and gravely injured a U.S. congresswoman. Lougher, 22, listed those tomes among his favorites on his YouTube channel, in which he wrote that "conscience dreams" were a "great study" at his college, Pima Community College. One user on Twitter, Caitie Parker, wrote she went to high school, college and was in a band with the gunman. She said she hadn't seen him since 2007. Parker wrote of Lougher, "As I knew...
