I can't help but think that the Pittsburgh cop killer was an agent provocateur. Gun control doesn't pass unless there is violent gun crime perpetuated by whiteys immediately preceding it.
On the cockroach principle that, if you see one, there may be hundreds in your home, we could guess that many more people believe something like this.
Meanwhile, the Infowars website, alleged to be an inspiration to the shooter, claims vindication from a study showing that the shooter rarely posted comments on the site and had criticized it for being insufficiently anti-Zionist. But the fact that the shooter felt that Infowars and Prison Planet didn't go far enough in its analysis doesn't mean, as Jones's fans now want to assert, that he opposed the basic agenda of the site. We could just as easily say that they remained in fundamental agreement on the ills plaguing the country ("false flag" attacks in 2001, rule by bankers, etc.) while disagreeing on details of the diagnosis.I don't make the point in order to press any charge against Jones or his sites, but only to suggest that they're not as clearly off the hook as they'd like to think. I will say that if lies contribute to the mindset of a murderer and make him more likely to commit murder as an extreme form of "self-defense," the liars are accountable for lying in the first place, and more so if their lies aggravate other people's pathology to the point of murder. The issue isn't whether anybody programmed a certain person in Pittsburgh to kill people, but whether someone contributed to creating an intellectual environment that made killing more likely. Think about that.
