Some ridiculously inaccurate information supplied to Fox News by somebody in the Department of Homeland Security suggested that Jared Taylor’s American Renaissance somehow might have motivated the attack on Gabrielle Giffords (which resulted in the deaths of six others), delusionally referring to Taylor’s completely civil and Jew-friendly organization as “anti-government” and “anti-Semitic.”
[Shooter Jared Loughner’s friend Bryce] Tierney believes that Loughner was very interested in pushing people’s buttons—and that may have been why he listed Hitler’s Mein Kampf as one of his favorite books on his YouTube page. (Loughner’s mom is Jewish, according to Tierney.) Loughner sometimes approached strangers and would say “weird” things, Tierney recalls. “He would do it because he thought people were below him and he knew they wouldn’t know what he was talking about.”*
Because of this one crazy Jew, we are seeing efforts to stigmatize criticism of the government, and there is already, on the Monday after the shooting, a move to increase restrictions on firearms ownership.
