DC Shooting suspect could be a threat to Obama

Police believe the suspect, 21-year-old Oscar Ramiro Ortega of Idaho, is mentally ill. Ortega has an extensive record, ranging from domestic violence to drug charges. Sources say a police investigation has uncovered evidence suggesting Ortega has a fixation on the White House.

No mention of this person’s political affiliations or alliances.  Just that he’s nuts.

Hmm.

Who wants to place a bet that this guy is a fanatic liberal and is angry with Obama because he’s disappointed that The One hasn’t lived up to the liberal hype?

Do you think there’d be no mention of it if this guy had a history of voting for Republicans, was a Tea Party supporter or had a bunch of conservative literature around?

If there were no indications at all about this guy’s political leanings, you don’t think they’d find a way to jump to Tea Party conclusions like they did with Jared Loughner?

Sure.

What that tells me is that they know full well who this guy is and what he believes, so they come to the conclusion that he’s just obviously insane.  No way he could actually be a violent liberal.  Everyone knows that liberals are all about peace and love and tolerance; that only those evil, tea bagging conservative Rethuglicans are capable of violence right?

This part is especially brilliant:

U.S. Park police say Ortega may have spent time blending in with Occupy D.C. protesters.

See?  No way he was a part of the OWS crowed…they’re peaceful, loving, tolerant, smelly hippies.   He was just “blending” with them.  You know:  like a disguise.

You think it would have been framed in the same way had he been “blending in” with a Tea Party group?

Nope.   No bias here.

And they wonder why their industry is dying.
