Az Shooter Not the First of Its Kind
The only other sitting Congressman to be murdered in the line of duty was Rep. Leo Ryan (D), killed by crazy socialist Jim Jones and his followers in 1978. Jones was also a dedicated follower of the Communist Manifesto and Karl Marx, Josef Stalin and Adolf Hitler. Details all eerily similar to those discovered of the Arizona shooting suspect. As pointed out by @CJF_Fontenot_1, they also both murdered women & children indiscriminately.
Pretty interesting coincidences. Socialism seems to have already developed a far more violent pattern than the Tea Party ever could. To even suggest the Tea Party can match socialism’s proven reputation is very ambitious, to say the least. Maybe it’s not the peaceful, loving utopia it’s advocates claim?
UPDATE: After some more research I’ve found an even longer list of victims of violence at the hands of socialists. These are infamous acts of violence, not obscure events I dug up on the internet.
Case 1: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy
Most Americans know that President Kennedy was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald, but did you know that Oswald was a radical socialist? So radical, that he actually defected to the Soviet Union, renounced his U.S. citizenship and married a Soviet girl.
Case 2: The Assassination of President William McKinley
The details of this case are a little less known by the public. This is understandable seeing it happened over a hundred years ago. The down and dirty is President McKinley was assassinated by Leon Czolgosz. Czolgosz is commonly known to have been a follower of Emma Goldman and Alexander Berkman, two socialist heroes commonly idolized during the 1960’s by hippies and feminists alike.
Now the tricky part is Czolgosz is commonly credited as being an Anarchist, which is true. The catch is he follows the teachings of Emma Goldman as a radical ‘socialist anarchist’. A type of socialism that is even considered radical by most socialists. These type of socialists were responsible for many bombings and murders in the early 1900’s, creating the popular demonization of Anarchism you see today. Not peaceful in any way, but still a dedicated socialist.
I invite everyone to research all of this and verify it for yourselves. If you find any other interesting connections be sure to let me know!
