I wondered why there was virtually NO mention in the US mainstream media of the latest Colorado school incident in which a known Socialist student intended to confront a teacher but ended up wounding two classmates before killing himself.


It would shatter the dishonest left wing narrative that only knuckle-dragging right wingers shoot up public places.

If this is true, such good fortune!

You can finally say, after hundreds of horrendous shoot-m-ups that finally, oh, God FINALLY, not "only knuckle-dragging right wingers shoot up public places."

Small consolation, that.

The FACT is that

the overwhelming majority of mass shooters are apolitical...a condition the left wing fringe would very much like to ignore because it doesn't fit their narrative. They are typically emotionally and/or mentally disturbed/deficient.

Talk about knuckle-dragging....

THAT's what caught your eye in the whole article??

"I wondered why there was virtually NO mention in the US mainstream media...." blah blah blah. Oh, I dunno, because some random student made that "Socialist" comment, and does it really matter anyway??

Why didn't you highlight the "A teenager who may have had a grudge against a teacher" part? Or the "He had very strong beliefs about gun laws and stuff," part....Or the "I also heard he was bullied a lot." part...or the "Pierson has been described as a dedicated and bright student from a religious family who attends Bible study meetings," part??

Are you sure it was the "Socialism" interest that sent him over the edge--and not all those Bible classes? (You know, all that 'smiting' and 'smoting' stuff?)

Classic troll post.

You're a joke

As long as you can...as you always do..."shoot the messenger" you can avoid confronting facts that are painful to the left wing fringe.

."shoot the messenger"?

No cruiser no!

Only unarmed students get shot.

Not egregious crotchety old messengers with no teeth living on entitlements they criticize when others get them.

Indubitably unrepairable.

Grow up, cruiser.

You are juvenile beyond belief.

What's beyond belief, dearie

is that you can be so consistently belligerent and unpleasant.

Can't help but wonder if he was a tea partier, worn "no spin zone tees", or had Rush Limbaugh on his ipod would these facts be censored?

when I hear someone using the word "dearie" what comes to mind is an aging queen hanging out in a piano bar.. I'm just sayin'

But...but ...but...

We have a Murdoch newspaper quoting a student about something that has nothing at all to do with the shooting--or the motive--so that has to mean something...

And we have tweets!! Honest to God TWEETS! So that has to prove something somehow somewhere....Where the hell was I going with this??

Mp, i know crusters can easily become confused. So let me help you. Some of us in the media have gone out of our way to connect mass shootings, acts of terror, suicides, to the tea party, the right, or Republicans.

Suprise, suprise, when the truth is exposed..

Here you have a socialist, a moonbat, someone who would fit in with the left in this country. So how do we cover this shooting? We censor.....

Media bias? Personal bias? No . No. Only Fox News is biased.

Back to the random student...

who called him a "socialist."

Doesn't really mean anything. Heck, cruzo, con and just about anyone in the TEA Party calls everyone they disagree with a "socialist" -- or a "Muslim" or a "Nazi" or a "communist" or a "Kenyan."

The shooter was on the debate team. He'd taken positions on Keynesian economics. That's NOT socialism. That's a school of thought on free market economics that, in the short run, demand drives the economy -- and that a mixed economy leads to better economic outcomes.

It's the basis behind George W. Bush encouraging Americans to go out and shop after 9/11 -- to "do their part for the economy."

The fact that a student -- who obviously confused the principle economic theory driving free-market economies in the developed world with "socialism" -- shows how inaccurate the description was and why it should have been removed from any media reports.

That aside, it had nothing to do with his reason for the attack -- which was apparently revenge against the debate team coach who'd disciplined him back in September.

Once again etwinkie expounds at length

but has no idea what he's talking about. He's driven by his left wing paradigm to try to obscure the confirmed fact that the shooter was a Socialist.

That has bearing on this incident in precisely the same way that the left wing fringe trying to speculatively paint Adam Lanza, Jared Loughner and James Holmes as right wingers EVEN BEFORE THE SMOKE HAD CLEARED. But in this case, it is a fact confirmed by SEVERAL who knew the shooter.

Poor, poor, cruzo...

wouldn't know a socialist if one bit him on the leg.

He's accused many on here of being socialists, he's accused me of being one.

He's unable to challenge ANYT face I posted above.

But he's willing to throw facts out the window to score a point against those who dare disagree with him.

The "face" you posted above, pal

what what you lost with your wholly inappropriate political rant.

WHERE is your...

confirmation that the shooter was a "confirmed socialist" as you claim?

I know this is being fueled by the nuts over at infowars -- which is probably why you brought this up in the first place. They do seem to be your chief source of fringe reality, and right wing extremist talking points these days, cruzo:


But I wouldn't trust them for any kind of confirmation.

I don't need "confirmation" in the sense that you

and your left wing "journalist" buds mean it. Your disingenuous request for "confirmation" is only a lame attempt to discredit anything that doesn't fit the left wing narrative.

What are you using for brains these days, cruiser? Tinker Toys?

The man (ES) asked for confirmation, give him confirmation.

If you don't have confirmation, say so.

Man up, little boy.

one..ONE..other kid says he was a "socialist"...

and you rightwingnuts build a whole case on that?..just because the blaze and breitbart jumped all over it?..after one of America's best newspapers, the denver "post", backed off of it?

I knew there were some dim bulbs on the right here..

but I truly was not expecting complete and utter idiots..

ES is da man?


Grateful says so.

No cruster... The case is built upon his words, his beliefs, his actions. From many sources. Not just one student.

Sanitizing and censoring the shooter's political beliefs is news because there is a history ( by the media) of falsely linking the right to acts of violence.

"one..ONE..other kid"

Wrong. SEVERAL other people have said Pierson was a Socialist...including one other KID on a news show tonight.

How do you people think it benefits you to lie? Anyone who watches TV will know in a day or two that what you people are saying is simply not true.

Cruzo said...

"I don't need 'confirmation.'"

That sure explains a lot.

Of course, as we've seen over the past few years, those on the right tend to label Obama a socialist.

He's not.

It's pretty clear that those on the right have been labeling all those they disagree with as "socialists."

Some on the right have labeled the kid both a socialist and a Keynesian.

Again, two different approaches to economics. A clear sign those making the accusations of "socialist" have no idea what they're talking about.

And again, how did this play into the shooting?

Grateful Deadline Posted - 12/17/2013 10:30:51 AM | show profile | flag this post

The shooter was a mentally disturbed student, period.

It doesn't matter which side he drew in debates or whether he played videogames, ate Twinkies or wore green socks on Thursdays: He had a screw loose.

Try dealing with that instead of getting tangled in window dressing.

In other words, grow up.

etwinkie's gone off the deep end again

It wasn't anyone here who labeled Pierson as a Socialist. It was his classmates, teachers and school staff.

Why is it important to you and your left wing fringe buds to deny Pierson was a Socialist? And in that same vein, why was it important for the left wing to label Adam Lanza, Jared Loughner and James Holmes as right wingers before the smoke had even cleared?

What' message are you trying to convey?
