Because, Obviously, Correlation Always Equals Causation…

There was considerable buzz around the dextro sinister side of the blogosphere when a Boston-area man with serious mental issues was arrested. Among his offenses were stockpiling a large cache of weapons, setting up a firing range in his own home, and being a fan of Sarah Palin. Fortunately, he was turned in to authorities by his wife before anyone was injured.

But while the left is quick to point to the Sarah Palin connection, there’s another element that seems to be a bit more indicative of a largely-undiscussed danger in today’s society.

Gregory Girard was a fan of Sarah Palin (in a way somewhat reminiscent of how John Hinckley was a fan of Jodi Foster), but his dangerousness was first detected by his wife, Dr. Kristine Girard, is a professor of psychiatry at Harvard University.

Harvard… where have I heard of that recently?

Oh, yes. The Alabama college professor who shot and killed three of her colleagues was a Harvard alumna. Dr. Amy Bishop, apparently distraught at being denied tenure, graduated from the prestigious university with a degree in neuroscience. This despite having killed her brother with a shotgun (which, apparently, went off all by itself three times during the entire incident, the fatal blast being either the second or third shot, meaning it also managed to pump itself between shots) and being a suspect in an attempted mail-bombing of a professor who gave her poor ratings.

In the death of her brother, she was fortunate to have a sympathetic DA (now Congressman Bill Delahunt (D-MA)) to brush the whole matter aside. In the mail-bombing case, there was never enough evidence to merit an indictment of anyone, let alone a conviction.

Hmm… Harvard, bombings… why does that ring a bell?

Oh, yes. Theodore Kaczynski, the Unabomber, is another Harvard alum.

There’s an old joke that you can always tell a Harvard man; you just can’t tell him much. I guess it’s also true that you can’t tell just when he’s about to go psycho.

Obviously, we need to keep a close watch on those associated with Harvard. You never know when they just might up and snap.

    Instead of registering all guns, perhaps we need to register all professors. (Don’t forget Ayers either)

    Another tidbit:
    “A family source said Bishop, a mother of four children – the youngest a third-grade boy – was a far-left political extremist who was “obsessed” with President Obama to the point of being off-putting.”

    The inevitable conclusion is that people who are admirers of 0bama are whacked- out violent prone murderers-that’s the kind that are attracted to 0bama.

    When Federal authorities raided Ted Kaczynski’s cabin they found, among other things, a well-marked and dog eared copy of Al Gore’s “Earth In The Balance.”

    So obviously Secretary Napolitano needs to add environmentalists and global warming proponents as well as Harvard graduates and Obama supporters to her list of potential domestic terrorists.

    Thanks Jay Tea. I feel a lot safer now.

    Ted Kennedy went to Haavad (sic) before he got tossed out for cheating and if I recall correctly killed MJK…

    Perhaps everyone that goes to Harvard should be required to get special training and be licensed to attend classes there…

  • Victory is Mao’s

    Remember when you filthy neocons were saying “secession will be easy, we have all the guns”? Harvard is a manufacturing plant and what they produce year after year is thousands upon thousands of stone cold killers. Any Harvard graduate can became a mindless soulless killing machine at the drop of a dangling participle. You filthy neocons haven’t got a chance.

    So, now you see the truth. You are truly doomed. DOOMED I SAY! BWAHAAHAAAAA!!!

    Going back to the Prof killing her brother. The police and DA can reopen the investigation, because no court ever dismissed the case with prejudice, thus double jeopardy does not apply. Be very interesting to see if the Masshole authorities press charges against her now. Murder is one crime that has no statue of limitations. I hope that she gets what she deserves after a fair trial by a jury of her peers. In this case, a bunch so-called rubes.

  • Pamela Troy

    It would be as unfair to cite Girard’s connection with the Tea Party movement as it is to cite Bishop’s graduation for Harvard only if there were a mass movement in which Harvard graduates were emptying gun stores of weapons and ammo in the wake of a Presidential election, , stockpiling explosives, showing up at public gatherings with loaded weapons, flirting with secession, and waving borderline and waving picket signs with borderline and not-so-borderline threats like “I came unarmed THIS time.”

    Get the difference?

  • Mac Lorry

    . . .were emptying gun stores of weapons and ammo in the wake of a Presidential election

    Liberals got a two for one with the election of Obama. Not only did his election stimulate the guns and ammo segment of the economy, it made it difficult for the average person to purchase ammo, something liberals have been trying to do for years. Are you saying you are against Obama’s only successful stimulus plan, or against making it hard for people to buy ammo?

  • SCSIwuzzy

    No Pamela. Since the tea party movement isn’t doing that, either, I can only assume you get your “news” from MSNBC or Dailykos.

  • Pamela Troy

    Mac Lorry: Not only did his election stimulate the guns and ammo segment of the economy, it made it difficult for the average person to purchase ammo, something liberals have been trying to do for years.

    So you admit that the right wing was buying up guns and ammo in the wake of the Obama election. Thank you.

    Has there been a similar trend of Harvard graduates buying up guns and ammo in anticipation of faculty tenure meetings?

  • Pamela Troy

    SCSIwuzzy: Since the tea party movement isn’t doing that, either…

    Actually, it is, as Mac Lorry has already admitted. And I get my info about this right wing obsession with waving guns at liberals or perceived liberals from right wing websites that were practically boasting about this upsurge in gun sales. And occasional news stories about people showing up with loaded weapons and signs reading “The Tree of Liberty etc…” in areas where President Obama was speaking.

    Are you claiming these things never happened?

    “There was considerable buzz around the dextro sinister side of the blogosphere when a Boston-area man with serious mental issues was arrested.

    “But while the left is quick to point to the Sarah Palin connection, there’s another element that seems to be a bit more indicative of a largely-undiscussed danger in today’s society.”

    He’s a Tea Partier.

    Yep, the hatred-fed rage stirred up by the hard right social conservatives and whipped into a frenzy by propagandists like Fox News has surfaced again, this time in a Sarah Palin-loving, Tea Partying full-blown wacko.

    The Massachusetts man charged this week with stockpiling weapons after saying he feared an imminent “Armageddon” appears to have been active in the Tea Party movement, and saw Sarah Palin, who he said is on a “righteous ‘Mission from God,’” as the only figure capable of averting the destruction of society.

    As we reported yesterday, Gregory Girard, a Manchester technology consultant, was found with a stash of military grade weapons, explosive devices including tear gas and pepper ball canisters, camouflage clothing, knives, handcuffs, bulletproof vests and helmets, and night vision goggles, say police. They believe Girard, who pleaded not guilty at his arraignment, was “preparing for domestic and political turmoil,” and feared martial law would soon be imposed.

    Girard’s wife said her husband had recently told her: “Don’t talk to people, shoot them instead,” and “it’s fine to shoot people in the head because traitors deserve it.”

    But it appears that Girard had lately found a community with which to share some of his growing fears. A “Greg Girard,” listing his location as Manchester, Mass., has a personal page on the “Patriots of America” online network, a popular site affiliated with the Tea Party movement. The phone number listed on the page is the same as the number listed on the website of Girard’s consulting firm, which appears to have been run out of his home.

    Here’s a page that links up some of the comments made on the wacko Tea Party website.

    Here’s one of the comments found there and that sounds oh, so familiar – it could have been ripped fomr the comment thread of just about any wacko right wing blog.

    Leftists (a.k.a. radical liberals, progressives) have been vigorously pursuing a transformation of this country to a totalitarian communist state for about 100 years or so. For much of the early 20th century, leftist idealogy was so popular in the country that it was in many respects the most popular political perspective, and gave us a string of very leftist Presidents such as Teddy Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, and FDR, who was famously given to communist ideals. While leftism went out of style, in a relative sense, after Jimmy Carter’s devastating term of office, Obama’s Presidency energized the leftist majority in Congress, and in state legislatures, to embark on a program of reckless, mindless, and generally illegal/unconstitutional joy ride of totalitarian Marxist policy creation and implementation. Unlike in decades past, these policies (which largely begun during the Busch administration) are today perceived by about half of all Americans as an affront to the country’s economic wellbeing, basic liberties, and way of life. Obama is a clearly a leftist — perhaps even a communist. However, in his role as President, he has pursued a fascist agenda with an extraordinary degree of support from Congress. Because his leftist agenda has been realized with such rapidity, and with no significant opposition, those Americans who still value our Constitutional republic, our liberties, justice, and economic prosperity, have been in a state of shock at the relentless pace of our gov’t’s efforts to transform our county into a fascist state (based on totalitarian Marxist ideology). The immense destruction of this transformation has been far reaching, including support for failed economic policies, and all of the elements needed to maintain a massive, extremely violent police state as required by all totalitarian Marxist states. He has even created his own police force/army with new legislation making it possible for this civilian “National Security Force,” to carry arms. Further, he has created a new Presidential power, via Executive Order, that enables him or his agents to indefinately imprison any person, without the person being charged with any unlawful behavior, without evidence, and without any involvement of the court system. The purpose of imprisonment would ostensibly to prevent a future crime, based on suspicion. The activation of a number of the country’s 800 concentration camps provides the capability for the gov’t to imprison potential millions of citizens, which one gov’t “Continuity of Government” plan (Operation Garden Plot) indicates would include: “dissidents, tax protesters, anti-government protesters, non-conformists and members of religious organizations.” All of these categories of individuals are deemed “potential terrorists” by our government now, and simply as “terrorists” during a time of civil unrest. If involved in civil unrest activities, the gov’t allows U.S. troops to use lethal force on the spot. One wonders what consititutes “civil unrest,” and to what extent one would have to be involved to be shot on site. That said, a gov’t that imprisons any potential threat indefinately in a concentration camp with no due process probably doesn’t care much who gets shot or when.

    Makes you want to stockpile weapons and wait for Sarah Palin’s command to start killing leftitsts, doesn’t it?

    “Obviously, we need to keep a close watch on those associated with Harvard. You never know when they just might up and snap.”

    Jay, I take it from the cover you’re providing for the Tea Party movement and Girard’s role in that movement that “keep a close watch on those associated with Harvard” includes hiding in the bushes outside their house with an AK-47, is that true Jay?

    Seriously – why are you trying to gloss over and redirect attention away from Girard’s Obama Derangement Syndrome and political leanings and ties to Sarah Palin and the Tea Party?

  • SCSIwuzzy

    Pamela, you must be new to blogging or debating. You’ve made a claim, and the burden of proof is on you to back it up.
    If it is so obvious, and so prevalent, then you will be able to provide links to it with very little effort.
    Re-read MacLorry’s post, however, and you’ll see the did not “admit” any linkage to gun sales and the tea party movement.

    I do know people that “stocked up” after the 2008 election, however. With the House, Senate and White House in democrat hands, some people feared a full court press to create or expand laws restricting gun ownership.
    Since this happened (AWB) in 1994 (who controlled the House, Senate and White House in Sept 1994?), and the President campaigned on restoring the AWB, promised to make it permanent in November 08, and did so again shortly after he took office… they may have reason to think the Democrats would try to limit what they believe to be their Constitionally protected right to bear arms.

  • Steve Green

    Girard’s wife said her husband had recently told her: “Don’t talk to people, shoot them instead,” and “it’s fine to shoot people in the head because traitors deserve it.”

    The Republican leadership refusing to talk to Democrats about health reform ring a bell?

    And Palin’s incessant bleating that Obama is a terrorist comes to mind as well.

    Glen Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, and the birthers that rage over Obama’s supposed ineligibility to hold office because of his race… all sign posts of the wacko element flourishing among the Tea Party crowd who hate hate hate so much they would kill their fellow Americans simply because they have different political views from their wacked-out tea party conspiracy theories and stupidity.

    I was hoping you’d ask. Aside from the quotes already provided by another commenter, here are a few comments from that tea partyin’ right wing website, Free Republic

    http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2190050/posts

    in a thread early in 2009 about the upcoming civil war (for which they can apparently hardly wait:)

    “Where can we join up to shoot liberals?”….Just ask your neighbor who he voted for……”

    I say let’s get it on – sooner rather than later. Let’s see the big, bad, scary gay, liberal, afraid of taking a single casualty, lacking discipline, pot smoking army come to Texas and suppress us. And in this civil war, the conservatives will be on the side of Liberty, the liberals on the side Karl Marx.

    Foreigners, Libtards, Dems: Round ‘em up and ship ‘em east on trains.

    I believe only a few dozens head Rats AKA traitors. need to be “neutralized” starting with those who disseminate the socialist propaganda … MSM heads and leftist academics and this will stop .

  • SCSIwuzzy

    Pamela, I’m glad you were on Q-link or CIS back in the day. I fondly remember my 300baud modem as a home-office hotrod, though I got real sick of explaining that no computer would offer to play Thermonuclear War with any bored teenager. :)

    Your links… If I were to go to the comments at Kos, DU, Huffington Post etc, I could pull up 32 flavors of bat shit crazy too, on any number of topics. Plenty of nitwits talk big, and talk stupid, behind the anonymity of the internet. Someone debating online since ’83 should know that. And yes, I see the irony of me typing that, behind my 20 year old screen name, on a blog post penned by a man using a pseudonym. What can I say, when you find a handle that stands the test of time, you stick with it.

    But in order, for the fun of it

    1)10 minutes and google will find you a hundred hate filled rants on DU, Kos etc. Which is where you found your quoted text, I suspect (DU). An anonymous commenter, out of hundreds on a single post, is enough to condemn an entire political population? If so, can I pick the comment on DU to sum up the broad left?

    2) Decent example, the author’s post, of what I was describing. The President campaigned on limiting citizens’ 2nd Amendment rights, and some took him seriously. What’s the problem?

    3) An un-sourced photo, with no context, on a blog with this tagline: “Feminism, Critical Race Consciousness, Queer Politics, & Dr. Who Too?!?”. The blog’s author is clearly a leader in the Tea Party movement. /sarc

    4) William Kostnic isn’t a tea party movement guy. He’s a Ron Paul libertarian, protesting about guns, not taxes, so not a Tea party guy. Open carry is legal in New Hampshire if you have a permit. That may be why he wasn’t arrested. Showing up near where the President is scheduled to speak openly armed with a placard doesn’t make one a dangerous sociopath, just a shmuck. Unlike the folks that show up in black with Molotov cocktails to protest the World Bank and national political conventions, he does have the balls to do so without a mask.

    5) I guess an armed Paulite quoting Jefferson peacefully and legally, albeit stupidly, scared you so much you were compelled to feature him twice.

    I’ll check in after dinner to see if you’ve restocked this barrel with fish. In the meantime I need to prep the snow blower to handle the latest dose of global warming that’s hitting us here in Dutch country.

  • Pamela Troy

    scs: what violence that has been perpetrated at Tea Party demonstrations have been perpetrated by those on the left, particularly SEIU people

    Oh right, that single…uh…”beating” that was so severe that the victim can be seen walking around afterwards.

    And then there’s that hapless tea partier who lost the tip of his finger while repeatedly punching someone in the face. Poor baby!

    scs: If I were to go to the comments at Kos, DU, Huffington Post etc, I could pull up 32 flavors of bat shit crazy too, on any number of topics.

    Not that level of bat shit crazy you wouldn’t. I’ve hung around on all of those sites, and while I’ve seen some nasty things, I’ve not seen threads in which multiple posters talked about personally going after conservatives – burning down their houses, loading them onto trains for deportation east, or tarring and feathering. I’ve not seen threads in which multiple posters debated the merits of secession or a military coup.

    And as much as people on the left hated George Bush II, they did NOT empty gun stores of weapons and ammo or show up at his speeches packing heat. There was no left-wing equivalent to a state governor invoking secession to a cheering crowd of nitwits.

    scs: Plenty of nitwits talk big, and talk stupid, behind the anonymity of the internet.

    And when those nitwits start translating that stupid talk into weapons purchases, it’s cause for concern.

    scs: Which is where you found your quoted text, I suspect (DU).

    No. I found my quoted text at Free Republic, Connecticut Yankee, etc.

    scs: An anonymous commenter, out of hundreds on a single post, is enough to condemn an entire political population? If so, can I pick the comment on DU to sum up the broad left?

    Only if you can show that comment has the same level of violence, is echoed by prominent Democratic politicians and commentators, and has been backed up by members of DU running out and buying so many guns and ammo that there’s a shortage.

    SCS: Decent example, the author’s post, of what I was describing. The President campaigned on limiting citizens’ 2nd Amendment rights

    Please cite a quote in which Obama does this. I’d be interested in knowing what he said that was so outrageous, so unprecedented, that it warranted a weapons buying spree along with talk about secession and uprising.

    SCS: 3) An un-sourced photo, with no context, on a blog with this tagline: “Feminism, Critical Race Consciousness, Queer Politics, & Dr. Who Too?!?”. The blog’s author is clearly a leader in the Tea Party movement. /sarc

    I have no idea what you’re referring to here.

    SCS: Open carry is legal in New Hampshire if you have a permit.

    Didn’t say it wasn’t.

    SCS: Showing up near where the President is scheduled to speak openly armed with a placard doesn’t make one a dangerous sociopath,

    Nor did I say he was a dangerous sociopath.

    SC: just a shmuck

    And mercy sakes, what could POSSIBLY be dangerous about a schmuck with a loaded gun showing up at a public gathering?

    SC: Unlike the folks that show up in black with Molotov cocktails to protest the World Bank and national political conventions

    Cites please. I’ve heard rumors about “molotov cocktails at national political conventions, but rarely any that actually panned out. I certainly never saw any at the many peace or anti-Bush demonstrations I attended.

    SCS c I need to prep the snow blower to handle the latest dose of global warming that’s hitting us here in Dutch country.

    You really don’t have a clue about how global warming works, do you?

    None of these were carried out by leftists or liberals. In many of them, in fact, leftists and liberals or perceived leftists and liberals were the victims.

    ELF is an eco-terrorist organization that has been classified as the number 1 domestic terrorist group by the FBI.

    They are environmentalists who destroy property to get their message across. In 2003, they were responsible for the attacks of several SUV dealerships in Los Angeles, CA. Their attacks resulted in over $1 million in damages and as of yet, the FBI has not been able to find the terrorists.

    As you’ve amply shown nuts come in a variety of sizes, shapes and colors.

    The Harvard professor’s politics didn’t motivate her crimes. Her illness and actions weren’t driven by Obama and his politics.

    The Tea Party wacko Gerard’s politics did drive his crime and hateful agenda – driving him to believe and tell others “Don’t talk to people, shoot them instead,” and “it’s fine to shoot people in the head because traitors deserve it.”

    You see, in the right wing wacko world that Jay Tea seeks to defend it’s ok to murder people who you see as “traitors” – a term the GOP sought to throw on every Democratic politician, and a label used often on right wing blogs tp=o define anyone who dares disagree with the Tea Party agenda.

    Got any DU or Daily Kos threads to cite in which the posters talk about burning down the homes of conservatives, or loading them onto trains and deporting them, or otherwise abusing them? Got a prominent Democratic governor or senator to cite who invoked secession to cheering liberal crowds during the Bush administration?

    Show me.

    Paft: ELF is an eco-terrorist organization that has been classified as the number 1 domestic terrorist group by the FBI.

    And how many people has Elf killed?

    pamela troy “Show me.”

    Show you what, I already gave you the ELF a group that not only burns down property but does so with little to no regard for human life but are a bunch of LEFTEST KOOKS.

    Do you REALLY need to be shown the leftist nutcakes that riot in the streets at each and every G20 summit or global warming meeting?

    Hell, some leftist nuts were breaking windows at Vancouver Olympics the last couple days, they damn sure weren’t residents of the right.

    My one and only point is your demonstrated ability to cherry pick and point out isolated nutjobs and claim they only reside on the right.

    Simply, you’re disingenuous and tiresome, or more clearly, a partisan hack.

    p troy…. “And how many people has Elf killed?”

    And that makes a difference?

    OOOooo, LOOK, they don’t count, they haven’t killed anyone.

    Pinhead.

    If Bishop had been “right wing”, I’m certain that the media would have been quick to highlight that and we’d have to endure their moronic ponderings of how “hate speech” might have contributed.

    However, the Boston Herald noted a family friend as describing Bishop as

    [Bishop] was a far-left political extremist who was “obsessed” with President Obama to the point of being off-putting”.

    Imagine the reporting if the above quote had replaced “Obama” with “Bush” and “left” with “right”. I simply note this to point out the double standard by which the MSM reports.

    Green, I’m sorry. I didn’t realize you were too dense to notice the “satire” category at the bottom of the original posting. That meant that I wasn’t seriously putting forth the “Harvard breeds killers” notion; just taking the “Tea Parties are hotbeds of mass murderers and armed insurrection” spin that’s getting too irritatingly common on the left and mocking it.

    Sorry you took it seriously…
