Diogenes, since you requested me to comment on John Patrick Bedell, I will accommodate your wishes. Contrary to what the American Pravda was making him out to be, this nutjob was one of yours--a leftist, a "9/11 truther", a Bush-hater, and surprise, surprise, a registered DEMOCRAT. You would be wise to let this story alone, Diogenes. It is not helping your cause.
Read all the details from Gateway Pundit:
It Begins… Media Calls Bush-Hating, Pot Smoking, Truther & Pentagon Shooter a “Right-Wing Extremist” …Update: Shooter Linked to Al Franken …Update: He’s a Dem
"So, which state-run media outlet will be the first to claim this Bush-hating Truther is a tea party activist? …We’ll have to wait and see.
In the meantime, the Christian Science Monitor was the first to call the pot smoking, Bush-hating, Truther a right wing extremist.
For the record, 35% of democrats believed Bush knew about the 9-11 attacks in advance. 99.9% of the left were Bush-haters.
UPDATE: So… Will the state-run media report this?
The Pentagon shooter is linked to several gay rights groups along with PETA, NPR, various drug legalization orgs, Greenpeace and Al Franken.
Hmm. So when was the last time you ran into a 'right wing extremist' who was a big fan of Al Franken?
UPDATE: The media’s 'right wing extremist' is a registered democrat."
And for another interesting nugget, more from Gateway Pundit:
Pentagon Shooter & Registered Democrat Used Arabic Terms & Font In His Internet Postings
"Although, officials said he did not have any suspected links to terrorist groups it was discovered this weekend that Bedell used the Arabic term 'inshallah' or 'God willing,' using Arabic font – “إن شاء الله” – on more than one on his internet postings.
Creeping Shariah reported:
'A Twitter post revealed that John Patrick Bedell had an account on SourceForge containing “Jihad code.” Looking at the account of jpbedell – he used the Arabic term “inshallah” or “God willing,” using Arabic font – “إن شاء الله” – on more than one page. Here are screenshots from the website and project named “openinsurgent.” '
This wasn’t the only time John Patrick Bedell used Arabic writing in his posts. Creeping Shariah has more.
Hat Tip Bob Grant
You won’t see this reported by the state-run media. In fact, they still haven’t reported that Bedell was a registered democrat."
How strange is that to use the term "inshallah"? I am familiar with it because of living in the Arab world, but I would guess that the average American has never heard such a term. And Arabic font?
