The Pentagon Shooter Was "Right Wing?"

According to CSM, "John Patrick Bedell, whom authorities identified as the gunman in the Pentagon shooting on Thursday, appears to have been a right-wing extremist . . ." Think Progress described Bedell likewise, and goes on to note:

The Pentagon shooting is just the latest in a string of violence seemingly motivated by far right ideologies. Of course, last month, “[h]atred of the government motivated a man in Texas” to launch a suicide attack on an IRS office. And a recent Southern Poverty Law Center report found a 244 percent rise in the number of extremist hate groups. But when the Department of Homeland Security released a report last year warning about the threat from right-wing domestic terror, conservative politicians and commentators were outraged, claiming it was an assault on conservatism. Sadly, the report was right.

For his part, newly minted extreme leftie Charles Johnson goes the next step and ties Bedell to the Tea Party movement based on his exteremist views about "private property."

Some other facts you won't find in the above links round out the picture. Bedell was a 9-11 truther. He was deeply anti-Bush. And he was registered as a Democrat. Jeez, its true then. How much more of a right wing extremist tea partying nut job can you get than that.

> UPDATE Saturday, March 6: As more information emerges about Mr. Bedell, the less it appears that any coherent ideology was behind his actions, except that he was deeply antigovernment.

Yeah, 'cause ALL this information wasn't readily available from many sources WELL BEFORE the article was written.

The CSM is one bunch of incompetent libtards.

Patterico predicted this would be attempted the day before idiot-boy wrote his article.
