Propaganda

Sigh.. and so it begins…

Bedell “appears to have been a right-wing extremist with virulent antigovernment feelings,” the Christian Science Monitor reports, who traveled from California specifically to attack the Pentagon. While police were hesitant to assign a motive, “writings by someone with his same name and birth date, posted on the Internet, express ill will toward the government and the armed forces and question whether Washington itself might have been behind the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.”

Where do i start? The left has a fascination with talking down to people. Notice the title of the blog. Think Progress.. in other words.. if you don’t agree with us.. you aren’t smart and you can’t think.. and you don’t believe in moving forward.. regardless of the fact that we don’t use facts.. don’t think.. and are regressive. Apart from that, observe the instant spin to accuse the shooter as being “right wing”. It takes no small amount of self-delusion to be a neo-liberal. The shooter was from California and was a pot grower. If he was anti-government, he was as anti-government as any pothead liberal that hates being told he can’t grow pot on the ledge of his apartment .

BTW.. my brother.. who has extreme left wing views to the left of Ralph Nader has views identical to this guy.

  1. In the medical/mental health profession there is an expression,”If you hear hoofbeats think horses, not zebras.” A variation on Occam’s Razor. Rather than trying to classify him into a political pigeonhole by reconciling gun ownership and potgrowing, think thug. Or disturbed, or both. There have always been people that kill for no clear reason. At least we can be thankful he was not too good at it-that would seem to rule out right wing gun nut IMHO.
