Loughner Friend - "He Didn't Listen to Political Radio"

Is there anything left of the left-blogosphere, mainstream media and Democratic political accusation that Jared Loughner was motivated by right-wing vitriol?

ABC News presents video of an interview with Loughner's close friend, who says:
"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."
No, there's nothing left, other than the malicious accusations.  Waiting for apologies, once again.

  1. Osler admits not having seen Loughner for two years.

    You might also want to look into the group most closely associated with the documentary Osler mentions.

  2. Sometimes it's hard to remember we're all on the same team. That's why http://mittromneycentral.com/2011/01/12/congressman-pence-introduces-bill-to-defund-planned-parenthood-of-taxpayer-dollars/ was so refreshing and timely. Before the race for 2012 officially starts, we should get as many people to read that wonderful piece as we can. Then, in 2012 we can bring America back!

  3. I always get nervous about these kinds of posts. Ok great, this psychotic didn't listen to talk radio -- but when you post this as a defense, isn't there an assent implied such that when the next murderous psychotic acts, it's one faction's fault if the perp did have some connection to talk radio, internet blogs or political campaigns?

  4. This article doesnt seem to mention when the last time this "close friend" saw him. Says he's a high school friend...and clearly says in the video he hadn't seen him in TWO YEARS...Is two years long enough to get into politics through whatever drug induced haze Laughner was in? I'd say so. How on earth does this "close friend" know whether or not Loughner was motivated politically? How on earth can any of us know? The fact seems to be that we CANT know, but we DO know that Palin's map of targets is something that COULD have been and in the future COULD BE the driving force behind some maniacal attack. Basically I'm saying it may not be the cause....but it's certainly not helping and not right for someone as public and politicized as Palin. This video in essence...proves nothing about Loughner.
