Loughner was not affiliated with Tea Party or conservatives

Tucson shooter Jared Lee Loughner was not affiliated with any political party and failed to vote in the 2010 election, further bolstering the fact that his rampage was borne out of a deranged mental illness and had nothing to do with him reacting to vitriolic rhetoric put out by anti-government activists, as the establishment media and their liberal attack dog blogs have ceaselessly claimed in an effort to eviscerate the First Amendment.

In a Washington Post piece, Chris Cillizza reports that Loughner was a registered independent, but did not vote in 2010. He did vote in 2006 and 2008, but interestingly, the Post refuses to say who he voted for.

“Loughner’s decision to affiliate as an independent rather than a Republican or Democrat would seem to affirm the sense that while he targeted Giffords in the attack, it was not a decision born of a set of deeply held political beliefs that fit neatly into either party,” writes Cillizza, marking possibly the first time a major establishment media mouthpiece has conceded that efforts to portray Loughner as a tea party conservative are not only insensitive, opportunist and distasteful – but also completely incorrect.

Cillizza remarks that conservatives who pointed out that leftists were wrong to characterize Loughner as a crazed right-winger acting out on extremist political rhetoric have had their case “strengthened by subsequent glimpses into his personal life that suggests someone struggling with mental illness”.
