Explaining the Acts of Madmen...

Milo Nickels, Contributing Writer
Activist Post

Watch this video where the director of the Southern Poverty Law Center blames the Giffords shooting on "right wing political beliefs:"



Basically, they ignore the real reason that Jared Loughner became violent (i.e. mental illness), and blame it all on his political views.  This is simply irresponsible.  Would it be fair of me to say that supporting Obama causes people to become criminals?  How about after I see the following mug shots?

Just because we know someone's political views doesn't mean that we can use those views as an explanation for their actions.  Nor can we use those political views to label those people as being dangerous, or a potential threat.  Jared Loughner did not shoot Gabrielle Giffords because of his right wing views anymore than the criminals in these mugshots committed their crimes because they support Obama.  When we start calling people crazy or dangerous because of their legitimate political views, we aren't far from making those views illegal.

Orwell spoke of thought police in his famous book 1984.  Although we may not officially have thought police (yet) in America, the media is certainly pushing an agenda and teaching us how to think.  Through this type of indoctrination, many people will start believing that "right wing" views are dangerous, and start treating people with those views differently -- calling in "tips," conducting surveillance, forcing them into counseling, and costing them their jobs.  We won't need "thought police," because the mainstream media is teaching us to police each other's thoughts.  These types of stories, and irresponsible publications such as the MIAC report, can only lead to wild accusations against free-thinking people.

This type of rhetoric, whereby we blame the acts of madmen on views they may share with sane people, sends us down a dangerous path of the government and mass media telling us what we are allowed to believe -- lest we be labeled "threats." 

Milo Nickels began blogging and cartooning about politics in the year 2000.  After achieving some notoriety at that time, Milo took a break.  Now, Milo has launched a new website, Five Cent Revolution where he continues to write about political issues.  In particular, Milo focuses on constitutionalism, critiques of modern liberalism and progressivism, and defends individual liberty above all else.  Milo wants the government out of our wallets, out of our business, and out of our lives to the greatest extent possible.

We don't know he is insane, however, there is evidence suggesting he is a paranoid anti-government radical. Anti-government paranoids tend to be on the right.

Ah, yes, the Southern Poverty-of-Thought Law Center . . .

Since I will never become a pacifist liberal jellyfish, and blindly accept whatever is spoonfed to me via the lame stream media, I guess I would be charachterized as an anti government radical. To have morals, believe in the constitution, and holding Government accountable is now considered radical, racist, bigoted, and uncool. How have we gotten to this point? I'll tell you how, we've drank the media's kool aid and become pacifists. I'm so ashamed in my fellow Americans. Sack up people!!

I thought it was funny that Potluck found the shooters belief in the power of words to control the minds of the masses, and that diobolical forces of the world are using politicos to give speaches on the merits of sending american men to kill foreigners in foreign lands, and laying a burdon of debt so as to enslave the following gernerations. By their acts they have moved a communist power to construct a weapon that can destroy our capital ships, and have demonstrated that their attack subs can enter within a naval task force. (and by shooting missiles off the coast, in full veiw of an increasingly increadulous public).
Potluck the hypocrite, uses his own words to shape public opinion, perhaps with some success.
This land is in such turmoil that the buggiest
humans in the land are getting antsy, and it is little wonder why this doesnt happen more often.
My advice; dont shoot at the government unless they do first. And insist that your politicos choose america over internaitonalism. Thank you for reading this.

Excellent article!

When a republican is in the white house there are more anti-governments radicals on the left, and if there is a democrat in the white house there are more anti-government radicals on the right. Both groups have some valid points, but they are not consistent. Only the veneer and marketing has changed; as the late great George Carlin said "It's a club and you ain't in it!"

Regardless, his reported political beliefs are speculative, and people are coming to way too many conclusions.

And the audience goes wild at the Punch and Judy show; the Popcorn vendors line up to spoon out lashing of salty, fatty, feedia; Just the food that those untrained, bipartite brains are addicted to.
If going out and shooting people was an indication of mental illness, then it would be time to bag the military, the police and the leaders, who think killing people is jolly good fun and a great way to get paid. Not saying he isn't 10lbs of crazy in a 5lb bag, I just really have no idea, nor will I ever.

people try not to think about how cults work in our neighborhoods. he was probably appraoched to be a mason or getin the "bizness". thats enough to make anyone angry and crazy. the sad thing is the news will never mention it because the news is compomised by these same cults. Is it right that he shot up the place? no. Is it right he might have been psychologically attacked and worn down by people forcing him to conform to the will of the group? NO! Its time people stop going along with the news, and ts time certain cults stop hanging out on messge boards spamming stuff saying he was "mad".. mad means anyone who doesnt conform with the cults and fight them.. its a shame so many unqualified and selfish people are allowed to gain admittance "in" these groups. we need to start a national registry of cults in order to tie together these intentionally hidden loose "threads". America is in bad shape. and many will go along with this sinking ship in order to have some stability in their lives. Those people are cowards... but they will all gang up and say we shouldnt judge people. bullshit. its time to judge and call a spade a spade. the ones who dont want us to judge are the ones who want to stay in power or in secrecy. This man was turned into a killer. he wasnt always like this. Community colleges especially, push cults and new agephilosophy onto "baby goats.... kids" because communiuty colleges dont have greek frateranl or sorority organizations to guide them into the cults instilling a party lifestyle that looks down on anyone who doesnt joing the frat. there are also people joining into community gang stalking cults that work for the goverment as the eyes and ears of the police. these watchdogs all hope that someday they will be "rich" but they wont.. they bought a dream because they didnt have balls or a backbone. its a mould that grows over you, not something you can mould into something that is the best. it is impossible. God bless this young man and his struggle with "life"

You don't have to be a "pacifist liberal jellyfish" to dissapprove of this shooting.

His once high friend Caitie Parker described him as quite liberal also saying he was an activist campaigner for John Kerry during the 2006 election. Not a conservative more likely a liberal anarchist.

Anonymous said...

Jared Loughner campaigned for Gifford. Old friends from high school described him as a "left leaning liberal". He was listening to anarchist left leaning bands like anti flag and reading the communist manifesto according to his youtube page. Even if he was on the right it wouldn't matter.

Who prints the currency, owns the media, and mass murders people {mostly brown} all over the world, and in the middle east ? It ain't Arabs. Free Edgar J. Steele, Palestine, & US & UK. BTW Giffords is a pawn, like the "Judge"...find out about Michael Dean Schroeder, he was shot twice in the head by the ADL/ATF terrorists {28FEB93}who attacked his family shooting from helicopters, did the "judge" or the crack whore congress critter ever bother to bring the massmurderers of the Palestinians, the Davidians, OKC, & 911 to justice ? See the Preamble to the Constitution..."Do Establish Justice", er um without "Justice"...seems like the "DEAL" is void ab Ignitio....Void or Void Ab Initio definition: Not legally binding. A document that is void is useless and worthless; as if it did not exist. . . Mass Murderers have no "AUTHORITY" & the "Jewish" media are liars...who prints the currency & owns the media ?

OMG I can't believe these two!  Sadly the SPLC is listened to by the DHS.   I heard the SPLC actually works for DHS.  Unbelievable!  Thanks for posting.

Silly Zionist idiot. Their house of cards will collapse soon and then real justice will be meted out. MSNBC, Potok, SPLC and DHS are ALL part of the conspiracy of lies.

Parasitic scum like Potok are the real enemy of society. These "socialist" parasites actually believe that they own other people along with their earnings. Note how freakish and infantile these parasites are.

Keith Olbermann and this Potok freak are the ones who are criminally insane...They do think that they are entitled to other people's lives and incomes and therefore are intelectual muggers.

Most people - Including these TV maggots - Are too stupid to understand basic criminality.

Did anyone notice the MSNBC logo in the top right hand corner occasionally morphed into "Lean Forward".

Also, listen carefully to Mr. Potok. He is accusing the "radical right" whatever that might be, of slandering people, the very thing he is doing to the people he is slandering, the mysterious "radical right." I believe the correct psychiatric term for his condition is "projection".

This episode reminds me of the 9/11 charade when they were all over the media demonising the "Muslim" terrorists. This makes me wonder if the shooter is an FBI patsy. First you target a mentally unstable person then you point him in a certain direction and let him loose. How about the mysterious "second man"? Was that his handler?

This manufacturing possible scenarios, "speculation" is the word Mr. Olbermann used, can be done by anyone. However if anyone outside the establishment media does it it becomes a crime.

Wake up, people. How many more decades do we have to put up with this stuff. The man is not mad; he's a programmed MKULTRA assassin.

This all goes back to post WWII and Operation Paperclip; the Nazi mind control experts went to work for the CIA and the program is still operational.

Mark Potok says that it is the dangerous "radical right" that believes that gold and silver are the only legitimate currency. Actually it is the U.S. Constitution that says, "States shall not... make anything but gold and silver coin a tender in payment of debts." It's there in plain black and white, not lurking underneath the mysterious penumbras and emanations of the Constitution, like those rights "discovered" by the left.

I know of two people who make their living speaking or writing vitriolic, hate filled screeds against people they disagree with. One of them is Mark Potok and the other is Keith Olbermann. Note to Keith: If you really want to promote civil discourse don't start off by calling everybody you oppose, "THE WORST PERSON IN THE WORLD."

Government-loving Parasite (aka, Criminal Psychopaths) are everywhere in the broadcast media/Hollywood. The government terrorists control the airwaves with their FCC terrorist subgroup. Criminal psychopaths (yes...They really believe they OWN YOU...Like a Rapist or serial murderer) like Olbermann and Potok are the norm and are agents who support political terrorism.
