Some have speculated that Loughner's anti-government rants, published on his YouTube site, may identify the accused killer as a tea-party-type activist.I actually had somebody tell me yesterday that the shooter in the Tuscon tragedy was "probably some tea-party whacko." I asked him where he got that idea. He said, "from the local newspaper." Oh, you mean like in the letters to the editor or an editorial column? Nope. In a news story. It was quoted from some politician (but he didn't remember who it was that was quoted).
As WND reported, however, his classmate Caitie Parker wrote of Loughner, "As I knew him he was left wing, quite liberal and oddly obsessed with the 2012 prophecy."
Loughner also listed on his YouTube channel among his favorite books Karl Marx's "The Communist Manifesto" and Adolf Hitler's "Mein Kampf," casting further doubt on the notion that he was an angered tea-party type.
So, okay, we are in luck today. I saw this excellent column on WorldNetDaily.com. We can all now try to dispel the misinformation.

22-year-old Jared Lee Loughner is in police custody, accused of opening fire into a crowd in Tucson, Ariz., killing six and critically wounding Democratic U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

Loughner's YouTube and MySpace accounts give clues to his thoughts, but mostly contain disjointed, rambling diatribes about illiteracy, the government, mind control and "conscience dreaming."
But what else is known about the background of Loughner?
He lived with his parents – who have yet to speak to the media – the Associated Press reports, "in a middle-class neighborhood lined with desert landscaping and palm trees" about five minutes from the scene of the shooting. Neighbors reportedly described him as walking his dog, wearing a hooded sweatshirt, listening to heavy metal on his iPod and keeping to himself.
The more America learns about the accused assassin, however, the more disturbing the picture of this "disturbed" young man becomes.
