Pentagon Shooter A Democrat

Whenever some whack job commits a violent act, the media tries to spin the story that the perp is somehow a “right wing extremist” and then attempts to tie him to the Tea party movement. It happens every time. They did this with Joseph Stack, who flew his airplane into the IRS building in Austin, even though in his suicide note, Stack dissed capitalism and quoted the father of communism Karl Marx.
Now they’re doing it again with Pentagon shooter John Patrick Bedell. The Christian Science Monitors’s screaming headline: “John Patrick Bedell: Did right-wing extremism lead to shooting?” The Associated Press: “Angry anti-gov’t writing linked to Pentagon gunman”. Anyone who is angry at the government, in the view of the statist media, must be a Tea Partying right-winger.
Fortunately, the new media is around to act as a watchdog on the old. Michelle Malkin rains on their parade of prevarication:
Thirty-six-year-old John Patrick Bedell’s voter registration records in Hollister, CA are available for any journalist before he/she goes off and labels him a “right-wing extremist.”
Guess which party he registered under in 2005 and was actively registered under as of 2008?
Had they been interested in the truth, the statist media could have checked this out for themselves. In their way of thinking, it all depends on what the meaning of “truth” is. In the heady days of the Soviet Union, the leading Newspaper in the U.S.S.R. was Pravda. The Russian word “pravda” translated into English is “truth.” But reporting the real truth is not the interest of out statist media. Its only interest is in smearing conservatives and promoting the leftist agenda.
