Mounting evidence has linked the 22-year-old gunman who severely wounded Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, killed a federal judge and killed or wounded 18 others in Tucson, Arizona to the political right.

According to a memo issued by the Department of Homeland Security in the aftermath of the shooting spree at a Tucson, Arizona strip mall Saturday, Internet activity by the gunman, Jared Lee Loughner, linked him to American Renaissance, which DHS described as an “anti-government, anti-immigration, anti-ZOG [Zionist Occupation Government], anti-Semitic.” The online publication of the organization advocates white supremacy and racial separation.

Comment: Surprised?

I thought the following comment from the article above was the most telling part of this tragedy: 
Congresswoman Gifford’s father, when asked if his daughter had any enemies, replied, “The whole Tea Party.”
I also recommend strongly that you read Dade's excellent post on the tragedy and its ramifications  here.

Onward!

Hey, Ridwan.

The American media is not reporting this information about the American Renaissance. Also, they have not published the contents of the letter that Loughner wrote before he committed the crime. I wonder, did Loughner name anyone else in his letter? What are they hiding from us? And why?

Thanks for the support and for your excellent blog!

You are excellent questions my brother. What about "freedom of information" and the rest hey?

Thank you for taking a principled and brave stand on this tragedy. It is heartening to know that there are folks like you in the US who will not just bend and give up.

Stay strong Dade!

Onward!
