Just In Case Someone Tries To Portray This As "Right-Wing Extremism"

After Jared Loughner shot Rep. Giffords, the left made an attempt to portray this as a right-wing extremist influenced by Sarah Palin's "hate-mongering."  But the reality was that Loughner, while his rhetoric was fiercely anti-government, was more left than right.  The truth is that he was crazy, not even so much a leftist.  In case anyway tries that same stunt with Elliott Rodger, it appears that the only political leanings that can be gleaned from his social media is progressive.

Let me again emphasize: what characterizes most of these mass murderers is not left vs. right, but crazy vs. sane.  If there is a political direction associated with these crazy killers, I suspect that it appears left because it appeals to their sense of victimhood.
