Where Is The Talk About Far-Left Extremists?

Pentagon Shooter Railed Against U.S. on Internet

Resentment of the U.S. government and suspicions over the 9/11 attacks have surfaced in writings by the Californian identified as the gunman who shot two Pentagon police officers before he was mortally wounded in a hail of return fire.
In an Internet posting, a user by the name JPatrickBedell wrote that he was "determined to see that justice is served" in the death of Marine Col. James Sabow, who was found dead in the backyard of his California home in 1991. The death was ruled a suicide but the case has long been the source of theories of a cover up.

The user named JPatrickBedell wrote the Sabow case was "a step toward establishing the truth of events such as the September 11 demolitions."

That same posting railed against the government's enforcement of marijuana laws and included links to the author's 2006 court case in Orange County, Calif., for cultivating marijuana and resisting a police officer. Court records available online show the date of birth on the case mentioned by the user JPatrickBedell matches that of the John Patrick Bedell suspected in the shooting.

Sounds pretty far-left to me. So, why isn't this being reported as such?

If he had been a right-wing nut job it would have been a very relevant issue.

The media cannot use the short time frame either because we have seen in the past that it does not take long to call a shooter a right-winger, even if it turns out it's not true. The only thing that takes a long time (read forever) is for them to correct the mistake when they erroneously label someone as such.

If I were to guess, you probably will not see this information anywhere other than (possibly) Fox News and the "Right-wing extremist" blogs.

Uh .... It simply isn't relevant???

The news has been rather full of left wing killers lately.

Of course, reporting them as right wing fits the MSM's agenda. A tiny retraction after the damage is done, and they further their goals.

Oh, COME ON, Chuck..if someone uses a gun, you KNOW it's a RIGHTWING GUN NUT :-)
(yes, sarcasm here)

Left-wing extremists? What left-wing extremists?

Nothing to see here, move along now...

Chuck said...

TC, "Right-wing extremist" blogs you heard it here

Brooke, if they even bother with the retraction - large or small

Z, I found it a little ironic that a left-wing nut used a gun for a crime

Karen, agreed. Those people smashing windows at the G8 summits aren't left-wingers either
