Jewish Loughner and Giffords Shared Same Synagogue
By Douglas V. Gibbs
The media picks and chooses what it tells us, and if there is anything that doesn't fit into their anti-Right agenda, the facts will not be mentioned.
Leftist websites, after the Tucson shooting that killed six, and left Congresswoman Giffords in critical condition, took quick action to blame conservatives for the tragedy. Sites like Mediaite, and The Huffington Post, based on Jared Loughner's chosen reading of Mein Kampf, went so far as to claim that Jared Loughner is anti-Semitic. What a bonus, they must've thought, since they erroneously believe Nazism to be on the far right.
So why didn't they report that Loughner's mother is Jewish? Why would a half jew be anti-semitic?
Even more interesting is the news that Jared Lee Loughner's mother, Amy Loughner, is a member of the same Reform synagogue as Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. This would mean that Amy's son, Jared Loughner, the shooter who put a bullet through the skull of Congresswoman Giffords, is also a member of the same synagogue as his shooting victim. Yet, the Rabbi said nothing about this interesting coincidence?
In addition to that little tidbit, Jared Loughner's friend, Bryce Tierney, not only received a "farewell" voice message the night before the shootings, but Bryce confirmed that his friend is Jewish, and that Jared Loughner put Mein Kampf down as his "favorite reading" to irritate his Jewish mother, Amy.
Such news as that does not fit into what the media wishes us to believe, therefore, they decided not to report it. Instead, they decided to report that Loughner is some young white man, and that anti-Semitism was his motive.
Apparently, the first responders failed to reveal the truth. Political opportunity was all they cared about.
