So I see conservatives are boasting that the Communist Manifesto was listed on the shooter's "favorite books" list (not a peep about Ayn Rand and Adolf Hitler also being in there). Tom DiLorenzo is theorizing--with little evidence--that the shooter was a "left-wing pothead." To which all I can say is: give it up, dude. When you have a guy ranting that his college is unconstitutional, demanding that the nation should be run on the gold standard, warning that the government is "taking over" and shooting a Democratic politician, it seems premature to label him a liberal. Whether he's right or wrong about those things is beside the point.
On the other hand, the idea that we should start blindly praising the federal reserve and government, just because some shit-head went on a killing spree, is ridiculous. It's the equivalent of the "Hitler drank milk" argument: "Hitler loved milk, therefore milk is evil." I own several of the same books on this punk's list and am obviously not going to go on a rampage any time soon.
