One of the comments implies a lot of right wing reading material at the home. It could be "one of us" finally lost it. But going after a crowd of children watching Batman? WTF?
Or its just probing to see how people will react to the "home grown, right wing terrorist"
People who commit mass murder are insane by definition regardless of political affiliation. And yeah, that includes muslims. They just happen to have an insane religion to go with their murderous personal insanity.
Personally, I think that if you wanted to play the left's game of blaming things like this on exterior influences you could go after any number of left wing produced violence fests on television or in the movies.
But, that's not right.
The guy is insane. Insane people commit mass murder. That's really the only answer to this story. Looking for deep reasons...trying to understand the mind of a homicidally crazy person is pointless...futile. Assigning political motivations (which has been started by the left while the bodies are still warm) is beyond sick.
I mean, had the guy been muslim I wouldn't have been surprised or anything because it's an insane religion. Had the guy been a new black panther party member I wouldn't have been much less surprised because of the insane nature of that organization. That the guy happens to be white means little to nothing. He is crazy.
So, no, I would never buy into him being "one of us." We aren't crazy nutzoid as a group and should never allow anyone to paint us that way.
