Hasty memos and half-baked accusations

While reading Occidental Dissent, I found a disturbing comment.  It seems the hate-mongers are at it again, this time taking advantage of the tragic shooting in Arizona to cast suspicion upon American Renaissance.  As for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), apparently all it takes is for some deranged individual(s) to provide an anonymous tip linking American Renaissance to the shooting, and it is taken seriously enough to leak to Fox News:

There is no direct connection, but a strong suspicion, that the accused shooter was influenced by a group called American Renaissance. This is based on some of the videos he posted on YouTube. This group’s ideology is anti-government, anti-immigration, and anti-Semitic. Congresswoman Giffords is the first Jewish female elected to a high position in Arizona.

Anybody who is even remotely familiar with American Renaissance knows that it does not fit the description above at all.  But it is pro-white, and this is enough for some people to label it “racist”.  Once a person, or group, acquires the label “racist”, it follows (according to their reasoning) that all other negative epithets also apply. Thus, a “racist” must also be ant-Semitic, terrorist, fascist, ignorant, Nazi, Communist, pedophile, misogynist and a cannibal.  After all, evil is evil, right?
That Fox would publish such an accusation, obviously without the slightest effort to verify its veracity, shows that The Left is right about one thing: Fox News is not news at all.  The level of recklessness required to fling such ignorance at the public shows that, if Fox wishes to be taken seriously, it had better clean its own house and show more responsibility.
If I am right about the anonymous tip, then this incident shows us how far the United States has transformed into a police state.  We already know that, in places like Stalin’s Russia and today’s Afghanistan, people strike at their enemies by “informing” against them to the government.  In a police state, the government is a tool that can be used, by unscrupulous people, against anybody.  We are told, “report suspicious activity” over and over again.  Once in a while, suspicious activity may be a legitimate warning of impending terrorist strikes.  On the other hand, the sort of mentality we are being urged to adopt leads to a constant erosion of our liberties.  It makes me wonder if an occasional terrorist attack is a better choice.  Sometimes the treatment is worse than the disease.

    Two theories: (1) Either the DHS is making stuff out out of thin air, in which case they’ll be a defendant in a civil rights lawsuit, or (2) The Tucson suspect’s “links” to AR is that he was part of the leftist goon squad that tried to ambush AR’s last conference, or he was wanting to ambush the next conference, which is next month.

    Its not unusual for the media to get these kinds of things wrong. I’m ashamed to admit I’ve made similar mistakes myself. But Foxnews is a professional newsgroup broadcasting to millions of people. They should be held to a higher standard. Did they even bother contacting Amren before making that claim? It doesn’t sound like it.

    Jewamongyou, I truely believe that things behind the scenes pulling all the strings in the world are far and beyond anything most people believe how things work. If it were common knowledge how bad things actually are there would be rioting in the streets, and everyone even remotly connected to the elites/government would be shot and or hanged publicly.
    The controlled media, we might as well all start calling it just that like the British National Party does, goes out of its way to downplay how bad the state of the economy, and the current government really is.
    As far as I know you do live in a police state, and freedom only exists in the minds of the blissfully ignorant until they try to express them. If you wish to continue to live like the average American believes what their country stands for, and have an America with its freedoms as enshrined in the constitution, then every able bodied American better get their gun and start fighting right now to get it back, because as I see it, it only exists in name only.
    Don’t believe a word? Go and do some research on Infowars.com then, and try to deny what you see and hear there. Senators, congressmen, and ex military officers, celebrities, and various ex government officials as well as economist experts are all saying the same thing, and come on as speakers on the Alex Jones radio show.
    You can’t deny it anymore if you give it a look, it’s no longer fringe it’s mainstream.

    Loughner’s Facebook page had been saved just before it was removed. A copy is available.
    It has pictures of his heroes: Obama, Saul Alinsky, Chomsky, Hugo Chavez, Che, Fidel, Mao, Stalin, Yassir Arafat.
    “Fight the right. Obama and the progressives will overcome the tyranny of big business and the racist Tea Party.”

      I wouldn’t put much stock in anything vnn had to say. I saw that facebook snapshot linked somewhere else and my first thought was that it was created after the fact. Anyone could have made a bogus facebook page and said it was Loughner’s. The Utube and Myspace pages, however, do look authentic.

      The suspect never had a Facebook page, only MySpace and YouTube. Any FB pages claiming to be his are after-the-fact forgeries.
