    Report: Arizona Gunman Was Not Motivated By Politics

    Report: Arizona Gunman Was Not Motivated By Politics - FoxNews.com

    Arizona massacre gunman Jared Loughner's downward spiral may have been touched off by a broken high school romance and fueled by drug use -- but it was not politically motivated, according to his best friend in high school.

    Zach Osler, in an interview Wednesday with ABC's "Good Morning America," said: "He did not watch TV. He disliked the news. He didn’t listen to political radio. He didn’t take sides. He wasn’t on the left. He wasn’t on the right."
    Osler said he instead suspects that Loughner was motivated by a documentary called, "Zeitgeist: The Movie," which slams currency-based economics.

    "I really think that this "I really think that this 'Zeitgeist' documentary had a profound impact upon Jared Loughner's mindset and how he viewed the world that he lives in," he said.

    documentary had a profound impact upon Jared Loughner's mindset and how he viewed the world that he lives in," he said.
    This is very revealing because 'Zeitgeist' is basically a revised version of communism.

    Here are more links to “The Zeitgeist Movement”

    The Zeitgeist Film Series Gateway | Zeitgeist: The Movie, Zeitgeist: Addendum, Zeitgeist Moving Forward

    It looks like this guy was actually a very extreme lefty along the lines of a commie anarchist.

    So, wonder if those folks that were trying to blame Palin's facebook page, or Rush's "rhetoric" will man up and say "Okay okay, he was just plain nutz, I was wrong"


    Something tells me not a one of them will post here.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Yeah, I started reviewing this “ZEITGEIST: THE MOVIE” and scanned the “COMPANION SOURCE GUIDE” that you can find through the links.

    This makes way more sense now. If Jared was taking the hallucinogen “salvia”, along with other drugs, and watching crap like these Zeitgeist movies, combined with obvious mental illness, it’s no wonder he snapped.

    This movie is just bizarre.

    Zeitgeist is largely pointless, but it should be a shame for it to be banned. Unfortunately for me, I will never get the time back I wasted watching it.

    I only have one thing to say, and it's directed to every single one of the liberal idiots in the media, the Pima County Sheriff, the democrats in Washington DC who shamelessly politicized this tragedy, and the partisan sheep on this board who blindly defended that political nonsense...


    GAME OVER!

    You actually watched it? I couldn't force myself to, and I force myself to watch a great deal of conspiracy theory films...or at least, try to. I think at some point I must have overdosed on their stupidity, so I couldn't watch any more of them.

    I am still going to wait for things to be proven or confirmed but to the people who jumped on the anti-gun bandwagon, what else are you going to ban when someone gets stabbed or blown up or killed by a gun despite all your best efforts to outlaw them? Turns out we may have been able to save some lives by banning this movie (Joke). I think it is more useful to discuss mental illness and how we treat people we know are dangerous.
