    A law enforcement memo based on information from the Department of Homeland Security suggests Jared Loughner, the alleged shooter of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, may have been linked to a racist white supremacy and anti-Semitic hate group — a link the group itself vehemently denies.

    The government memo, obtained by Fox News, notes that Loughlin has no direct connection, but “strong suspicion is being directed at” a group called American Renaissance, a group that Loughner mentioned in some of his internet postings.

    The man is mentally disturbed and should have been under supervision. If you ask me, the Sheriff, and liberals defending this Sheriff should be looked at for why after no less than 5 incidents where police were called on this guy he wasn't treated. Yet, if you want to keep posting untruths, that have already made the news go ahead, I'll keep batting them down.

    Re: Sarah Palin accuses critics of "blood libel"

    Let's look at this section by section:

    Blood libel (also blood accusation[1][2]) refers to a false accusation or claim[3][4][5] that religious minorities, almost always Jews[citation needed],
    No false accusations have been made against religious minorities, Jews or otherwise.

    murder children to use their blood in certain aspects of their religious rituals and holidays.[1][2][6]
    No blood of children have been used in religious rituals.

    Historically, these claims have–alongside those of well poisoning and host desecration–been a major theme in European persecution of Jews.[4]
    Claims were not used to justify persecution.


    Any insistance that she used the right phrase is just really sad grasping at straws. She used the wrong phrase. It happens to all politicians. Trying to stretch the definition of the phrase to make it fit her message reeks of desperation. She's not perfect. Get over it.

    If anything, if he did go after her because she was Jewish, that makes Palin's remarks even more nonsensical. Palin's remarks had nothing to do with the Congresswoman's religion.

I think that the violence in our discourse certainly changes the perception of real violence is slightly more acceptable. Someone was pushed over the line. This is not to suggest that politics have ever been devoid of violence. Assassination, warfare, torture, coups... Violence has always been a primary method of achieving political goals. However, in this country, we have elections instead. I haven't been able to find a whole lot of information about the particular reasons, as stated by the shooter, for why this attack took place. I think that would be the most telling evidence.
    This is a much more likely cause than anything else. His friends said he changed a few years ago.
