    Then, many know about Loughner’s bizarre YouTube video. What few know, however, is that he apparently posted it to Democratic Underground.com before its appearance on YouTube. Yes, sheriff, that’s “democratic” as in Democratic Party—not as in Republican, Tea, or Animal House.

    The obvious villain in the Gabrielle Giffords tragedy is the man who caused it, the very disturbed Jared Lee Loughner. Sadly, though, there have been villains in the response to it, too—many villains. And while it’s hard to make a pick for this Black Hat Award, one man who has certainly distinguished himself is Pima County, Arizona, Sheriff Clarence Dupnik.

    As you may know, Dupnik has been busy warning of how speech has consequences while in the same breath blaming conservatives for the actions of Loughner. Now, I don’t blame the sheriff for asking why. It is fine to look for reasons. It is not fine to be reckless and wrong. And it’s a sin when it’s born of indifference to Truth.

    To be precise, Dupnik implicates right-wing talk radio—he mentioned Rush Limbaugh—and cable news in the Giffords shooting. Yet a number of obvious things seem to have eluded this man, this supposed professional investigator. For starters, if we’re actually going to analyze the politics of Loughner, we should note that one of his former classmates describes him as a “left wing” “political radical” and “pot head” and that Loughner had listed The Communist Manifesto among his favorite works on his YouTube page.

    Uh oh. Can this be verified? The CFP article won't open up for me.
    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

    It opens just fine.

    Hang on a second. It looks like this guy is blowing smoke up people's asses. His sentence:

    What few know, however, is that he apparently posted it to DemocraticUnderground.com before its appearance on YouTube. Yes, sheriff, that’s “democratic” as in Democratic Party—not as in Republican, Tea, or Animal House.
    But the link that he gives goes here, which clearly cannot be Loughner posting it, because that OP is stamped at 4:07 PM Eastern on January 8. Loughner had been in police custody for a solid six hours or more at the time this was posted.

    Jared Loughner did not post anything on DU; what the article links to is a DU poster posting the video that was on Loughner's YouTube channel.

    It was posted on youtube long before the posting you see here and probably on DU before that, it is unclear.
    Are you discounting the entire article and the author for this?

    No, no, not at all. That just would have been some seriously damning evidence, and boy, howdy would it have been fun to run moles into DU to link back to it if that were the case! :D

    The 'splody heads sounds would have been a symphony like never heard before.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
