The man responsible for the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre – Updates

Every day, we get news of yet another horror perpetrated in America — of yet another murder in the crime-ridden streets of a nearby city, of senseless acts like an argument in a New York subway station escalating to the pushing and death of a family man under an oncoming train….

America is no longer a country we recognize.

Yesterday, a new unimaginably EVIL horror was perpetrated in an elementary school in prosperous Newtown, Connecticut.

A young man first killed his mother, then drove in her car to Sandy Hook Elementary School. Calmly, without saying a word, he shot to death 20 little children and 6 adults.

Sandy Hook now has the distinction of being the second worst school shooting in U.S. history — second in the number of victims only to the 2007 Virginia Tech massacre, which left 33 people dead, including the gunman.

Before we even found out the name of the mass murderer, the usual voices on the Left already had started making political haystack out of this latest evil with their usual denunciations of private gun ownership and their usual calls for gun control. To them, I have this question:

“China has had a rash of incidents of lone men going into schools and killing and wounding little children — with a knife. The most recent incident took place just a day before the Sandy Hook massacre. Should America also ban the private ownership of kitchen knives?”

And predictably, the usual Leftist trolls came onto this blog, Fellowship of the Minds, to spew their hateful and very confused accusation, such as this gem by Tmaz123:

“Gun control need to be reviewed. No one needs an assault rifle. The blood of these innocent children are on your hands. Hope you are all happy.”

To Tmaz123 and her ilk, I say:

“No, neither guns nor gun owners are responsible for the Sandy Hook killings. The person who is responsible, who has blood on his hands, is the killer himself — and his parents.”

This is what we know about the Sandy Hook mass murderer, thus far:

Adam Lanza as a child (l) and adult (r)

Adam Lanza as a child (l) and adult (r)

  • He is Adam Lanza, age 20.
  • He lived with his mother, Nancy, in a well-to-do part of prosperous Newtown, a picturesque New England community of 27,000 people about 60 miles northeast of New York City. The Lanzas’ neighbors are doctors or hold white-collar positions at companies such as General Electric, Pepsi and IBM.

Newtown

  • Adam Lanza’s parents, Peter and Nancy, had filed for divorce in 2008. Peter Lanza remarried and lives in Stamford, Conn.; works as a tax director for General Electric; and found out about his son’s murderous rampage from a reporter. ABC News says Nancy was a kindergarten teacher. The AP says at least one Sandy Hook parent said Nancy Lanza mother was a substitute teacher there, but her name did not appear on a staff list. Police official said investigators were unable to establish any connection so far between her and the elementary school.
  • Adam has an older brother, 24-year-old Ryan, whom some reports had initially but mistakenly identified to be the killer. Ryan Lanza lives in Hoboken, N.J., and was at work when his brother committed the massacre. Law enforcement officials said they had questioned Ryan and do not believe him to have been involved in the shootings at Sandy Hook. Ryan told police he had not been in touch with his younger brother since about 2010.
  • Police first said they don’t have a motive for the killer, Adam Lanza, but later indicated they do have evidence for a motive although they refuse to say what it is. Investigators believe Adam had attended Sandy Hook several years ago but appeared to have no recent connection to the school. Daily Mail reports that Adam had “fought with” four Sandy Hook teachers the day before. He killed 3 of the 4 teachers; a fourth teacher wasn’t at the school that horrible day.
  • Adam Lanza was highly intelligent. People who knew him describe him as “brilliant but remote.” He was an honor roll student at Newtown High School, but was living at home instead of attending college or working at a job.
  • Adam Lanza showed signs of being mentally ill. An unnamed law enforcement official who was briefed on the investigation said Adam is believed to have suffered from “a personality disorder.” Neighbors described him as “odd” and displaying characteristics associated with mental illness. His brother Ryan reportedly described Adam as having Asperger Syndrome, a high-functioning form of autism that in some clinical studies has been shown to have a causal link to violence. But Adam’s aunt Marsha Lanza, of Crystal Lake, Ill., said her nephew was raised by kind, nurturing parents who would not have hesitated to seek mental help for him if he needed it. “Nancy wasn’t one to deny reality,” Marsha Lanza said, adding her husband had seen Adam as recently as June and recalled nothing out of the ordinary.
  • Adam Lanza was a Goth. Catherine Urso of Newtown said her college-age son knew Adam  and remembered him for his “alternative style”: “He just said he was very thin, very remote and was one of the goths.”
  • Adam Lanza played video games. He was a member of a technology club at Newtown High School that held computer gaming parties.
  • Adam Lanza killed his victims execution-style, shooting each child up to 11 times. The children were all 1st grade students, about 6 years old.
  • Adam Lanza hated his mother. Before he drove his mother’s car to Sandy Hook elementary school to massacre  innocents, Adam had shot his mother in the face — which, criminal psychologists will tell you, is indicative of a lot of rage and hate.
  • The guns Adam used belonged to his parents. Three guns were found — a Glock and a Sig Sauer, both pistols, inside the school; a .223-caliber high-powered rifle was in the back of the car driven by Adam. CNN reports that all three guns had been purchased by Nancy Lanza. In other words, no amount of psychological screening would have prevented Adam from getting hold of those guns. His access to those guns is his parents’ responsibility.

Like Adam Lanza, the killers at Columbine, Virginia Tech, Tucson AZ, and Aurora CO (Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold; Seung-Hui Cho; Jared Lee Loughner; James Holmes) are all young males from middle or upper-middle class homes.

There is something very wrong with our society and with American families. We are breeding heartless, soul-less, evil psychopaths.

Itching For a Class War in America

When news came last January 8 of a shooter in Tucson, Arizona, killing six people and wounding Democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, the media and the Left were quick to demonize conservatives and Republicans before we even knew anything about the killer. They quickly blamed “right wing hate rhetoric” for 22-year-old Jared Loughner’s killings, although it turns out that Loughner is a psycho whose motives for the massacre, while unclear, were not political.

A week later, before an audience of 14,000 at a memorial honoring the victims, Obama called for more civil political discourse in America:

“at a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized…it’s important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we’re talking with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds…. And I believe that for all our imperfections, we are full of decency and goodness, and that the forces that divide us are not as strong as those that unite us.”

Obama’s words evaporated like dewdrops in the morning sun, instantly forgotten by the Left, if they even had paid attention in the first place. Self-satisfied narcissists that they are, they think his words applied only to those dastardly Tea Party conservatives.

And so, not only are the Left not talking to us “in a way that heals, not a way that wounds,” they’re ratcheting up the hate rhetoric to heights never seen before. The Left deliberately are provoking a race and class war in America.

This is Part One, on how the Left are itching for a class war. Part Two, on the Left provoking a race war, will be published tomorrow.

Exhibit No. 1

On his show “Real Time” on April 9, 2011, self-styled “comedian” Bill Maher — he of the permanent self-satisfied smirk — called for a class war in America. This is what he said:

“As long as we have three wars going, America needs to add one more: a class war.”


Exhibit No. 2

On August 21, 2011, Democratic Congresswoman and former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi foments class warfare by claiming that “the rich” won’t pay taxes because “they want to be immortal,” and that the GOP “hates kids” and deliberately keeps wages low to force people to pay bank fees.

What the former House Speaker did not tell her audience is that she is one of the richest women in America. In 2007, Nancy Pelosi was the sixth wealthiest member of the U.S. House of Representatives, with an estimated average net worth of $62.5 million.

Exhibit No. 3

On August 26, 2011, as described by Buck Sexton of The Blaze, at a protest sing-along against Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker at the state capitol, a member of the Red & Anarchist Action Network (RAAN) held up a huge banner saying “Class War” and made this threat: “All you f**king Tea Party Baggers, It’s coming, get ready.”

To see the video, go here.

RAAN is a group with “a history of street protests and union pickets which turn violent.” The anarchist group even boasts on its website of having undertaken a number of confrontations with authorities and violence against political parties and banks. See the list here.

Part Two of this 2-part series, on the Left provoking a civil war, is HERE.

Liberals Wish Death For Sarah Palin

The hypocrisy of the Left has reached a level where it’s no longer hypocrisy. It is now a blindness about themselves which is the stuff either of moral perversity or mental illness.

Immediately after news broke of the Arizona mass shootings, before anyone knew who and what the shooter was, the Left and their complicit accomplices in the MSM already began pointing their fingers at “right wing hate rhetoric” as the culprit. Even after the facts began pouring in about mass murderer Jared Lee Loughner — that he was apolitical, who paid scant attention to the news, did not listen to talk radio, but instead is a drug-addled mentally-disturbed “loser” who worshipped at a skull-bedecked homemade altar — the Left’s scapegoating and demonization of Conservatives persist, undeterred by facts or the truth.

But liberals say they're pro-women feminists!

Now comes a video of “hate tweeds” directed at Governor Sarah Palin which is vicious even for the Left. Here’s NewsMax’s account, “YouTube Video Calling for Palin’s Death Spurs Outrage“:

A four-minute video montage of “hate tweets” on YouTube directed at Sarah Palin and calling for her death is creating outrage on the Internet. The video was posted on Tuesday, before President Barack Obama’s Wednesday address calling for unity in the wake of the Tucson shooting rampage, which killed six and injured Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and 12 others.

The montage is set to Alice Cooper’s song “School’s Out.” Among the tweets:

  • “Why couldn’t Sarah Palin get shot instead?”
  • “I hope Sarah Palin dies an ugly death and takes her moronic hate with her.”
  • “Can somebody please shoot Sarah Palin?”
  • “I hope Sarah Palin gets cancer and dies in the next two years.”
  • “Sarah Palin should be shot for her encouragement of fanaticism against Democrats.”
  • “Join us in praying to God that Sarah Palin contracts cancer and dies.”
  • “Sarah Palin is the single most dangerous threat to the future of the human race. Somebody bloody shoot her.”

According to Fox News, “attempts to reach some of the Twitter users who posted the messages were unsuccessful.” Twitter’s terms of service advise that “we may not monitor or control the content posted via the services and we cannot take responsibility for such content.”

One of the many posters responding to the video stated: “Such hate and yet the left feels totally justified in putting the blame on others for one idiot’s action.” Examiner.com observed: “Will this get condemned over at the DemocraticUnderground, or ThinkProgress? Maybe. Will they make as big a stink as they do about Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh, and call on YouTube to pull the video and perhaps implore Twitter to pull the Twitter accounts?”

I can’t find the video montage on YouTube, but here’s an arguably even more shocking video:

An aide close to Sarah Palin says death threats and security threats have increased to an unprecedented level since the shooting in Arizona, and the former Alaska governor’s team has been talking to security professionals.

May the Light of Christ protect you from the evil ones.

Is Secession the Answer?

AT THE CROSSROADS

By Tom in NC

I’ve been holding off making a comment about the events in Tucson, Arizona perpetrated by a deranged, homicidal madman, but I can no longer hold my tongue.

Liberals (politicians, Sheriff Dupnik and the media lackeys) are very likely handing Loughner’s defense attorneys a golden key to get him off through a plea of insanity. Instead of placing the blame properly on the murderer, liberals instead are demonizing conservatives and exploiting the tragedy by seeking to curtail Americans’ free speech rights guaranteed by the First Amendment of the Constitution — all in the name of combatting “hate rhetoric.” These illiterate, illogical and idiotic liberals are assaulting our free speech and our sensibilities with their insane accusations against talk radio, the TEA Party and Sarah Palin, of which they have absolutely no evidence to back up their assertions.
 
From what we know so far, Jared Lee Loughner had acted alone. He was obsessed and angered with Rep. Gabrielle Giffords since 2007, long before the founding of the TEA Party movement and before Sarah Palin came on the national scene. We also know he did not watch news shows or listen to talk radio. He is a drug-addicted loner, trouble maker and now a mass murderer/assassin.
 
Every since the heinous crime took place, liberals have taken every opportunity to place the blame on Conservatives. We have become the scapegoats in their political blame-game. Undeterred by facts, their rhetoric has reached a fever pitch and it’s starting to sound like an all-out war against us. There is talk of reviving the Fairness Doctrine, new gun laws and restrictions on our speech. Who knows where it will go from here.
 
I’m not sure what the immediate future will bring, but I do know things have got to change. There has been talk of a second revolution, but I think it’s just about time that we should think more about secession – letting states break off from the union and become independent from the federal government and cut all ties with Washington DC. The federal government has become bloated, incompetent, tyrannical and wasteful. It’s time to break free of this tyranny. I don’t see any other way to gain back our freedoms that steadily have been eroding for decades now.

I’m willing to relocate to any state that is willing to secede. To tell you the truth, I’m fed up with being called a terrorist, a murderer and a racist simply because I disagree with the status quo, because I vote conservative, because I am a TEA Party member and because I see my country as a hollow shell of what it used to be. The greatness of our country rapidly is fading, stripped away by the disease of liberalism. I say let the liberals have their havens of drug, debauchery, tax-and-spend tyranny, and big-brother, big-government lunacy. We’ll keep our rights, freedoms, liberties and prosperity.
 
The choice is before us.

Is it Liberalism — with its high taxes, out of control spending, high unemployment, reckless social programs and inefficient education system? Or is it Conservatism’s free market prosperity, small efficient government, increased employment, choices and quality education, and individual accountability and self sufficiency? 

Only by seceding can Conservatives combat liberalism, eliminate it possibly once and for all, or at least minimize it so much as to make it totally irrelevant.
