Sarah Palin Inspired Jared Loughner To Shoot Gabrielle Giffords? Photos And Video

by | 9th, January 2011

JARED Lee Loughner has murderd six and shot 12 more people with a Glock 9mm pistol at a Safeway grocery story in Tuscon, Arizona. It’s his home town. Among the dead are Federal judge John Roll and a nine-year-child. Among the injured is Arizona’s first Jewish member of Congress, a woman named Gabrielle Giffords. She’s a 40-year-old pro-abortion Democrat and gun supporter. Loughner walked up and shot her in the head. So. Why did he do it?

Sarah Palin once aimed her sights at Gifford. She would be Palin’s kill of the day. Gifford was in Sarah Plain’s crosshair as one of the legislators who had voted for Obama’s health care bill.

Palin introduced a map to her Twitter followers with the charming line:

“Don’t retreat, instead- RELOAD!”

Palin was not alone in mixing guns with politics. An Iraq war vet called Jesse Kelly stood against Gifford as the 2010 Republican nominee for Arizona’s 8th congressional district:

He seems to be embracing his fellow tea partier’s idea. Kelly’s campaign event website has a stern-looking photo of the former Marine in military garb holding his weapon. It includes the headline: “Get on Target for Victory in November. Help remove Gabrielle Giffords from office. Shoot a fully automatic M16 with Jesse Kelly.”

Palin and her acolytes never made Loughner do it. He has mind of his own.

Loughner has page on YouTube.

I attended school: Thornydale elementary,Tortolita Middle School, Mountain View Highschool, Northwest Aztec Middle College, and Pima Community College.

He says his favouite film is:

(*My idiom: I could coin the moment!*)

His favourite books:

I had favorite books: Animal Farm, Brave New World, The Wizard Of OZ, Aesop Fables, The Odyssey, Alice Adventures Into Wonderland, Fahrenheit 451, Peter Pan, To Kill A Mockingbird, We The Living, Phantom Toll Booth, One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, Pulp,Through The Looking Glass, The Communist Manifesto, Siddhartha, The Old Man And The Sea, Gulliver’s Travels, Mein Kampf, The Republic, and Meno.

Here he is (and maybe Obama inspired him to do it):

A old classmate of his – Catie Parker – says Loughner used to be pot head (cue a heated debate on the drugs issue):
