Jared Lee Loughner is a Registered Republican? UPDATE

So don't let any teabagger jaggoffs tell you that he is a "leftist lunatic."

UPDATE: As Eric so gleefully points out in the comments, it appears as if this screen grab is a HOAX.

But I don't see how Loughner being "a diehard antiWar, antiBush, 9/11 Truther" establishes anything here. As publisher of LibertarianRepublican.net, Eric should know that one of his presumed heroes, Ron Paul, is anti-war. And the 9/11 Truth movement has adherents from all points on the political spectrum. Indeed, one of the leaders of the "Truth" movement is Alex Jones, who calls himself a libertarian but who ran for Congress as a Republican. And although Jared Loughner's politics seem difficult to discern, several news outlets are reporting at least passing affiliation with right-wing elements.

But why, one wonders, are so many on the left leaping to conclusions of teabaggery regarding young Mr. Loughner? And why are so many on the Right so hypersensitive to such conclusion-leaping? Could it be the Right's long, long history of political violence for which there is no lefty counterpart? Or could it be the gun-centric bombast that peppers so much of the Right's rhetoric?


Whatever the reasons, until the Right ditches its desperate win-at-any-cost approach to political discourse, the violence will no doubt continue.

So, is leftwing lunatic Michael Bloomberg.

Just because some Leftist infiltrates our Party, doesn't make them a Republican.

We have a name for that R-I-N-O.

Oh, and btw, turns out Laoghner is a diehard antiWar, antiBush, 9/11 Truther.

Do you wish to retract and apologize to those of us on the Right?

Everybody is antiBush.
Most libertarians are antiwar, unless they are disingenuous LINOs.
Truthers seem to gather mostly on the fringe antisemitic branch of the right.

So, that said, Eric; did you have a fucking point?
