In a Politics question yesterday ("Why is it?" ) the question was asking why Von Brunn was being characterized by the media et al as right-wing.
There were a lot of replies which insisted he was right wing, and that he was Christian.
But the poster gave a link to a magazine article. It gave a police detail that the shooter had its address on his list (it's a right-wing magazine) and that on Von Brunn's website, "... In one essay, Von Brunn attacked "JEWS-NEOCONS-BILL O’REILLY," and the suggestion that neoconservatism is a specifically Jewish conspiracy is common on the racist fringe. ... "
And other opinions on his website show that he declared the New Testament to be hoax.
So where did these two labels of him come from? Were they just INVENTED by the first reporters? It looks like the public got hoaxed, too ... but good!

What's strange is that I don't think any group should be burdened with claiming him. He is anti-government. But then again I guess if it has to serve an agenda then they will say whatever they have to.

Whenever they show the clip of the murdered man's son my heart breaks all over again. I know how it feels to lose a father at that age and my heart and prayers go to him and his family. It's a shame that some people have no value for life and don't care what they take from others. That man's family is changed forever, and for what? It's such a tragedy.
