    I read this article "Rockers Anti-Flag, Drowning Pool Rightfully Quell Speculation About Motivating Loughner"

    Got partially through the article and could not go any further What a crock of shit

    First Anti-Flag:
    It has come to our attention that a purported former classmate of Jared Lee Loughner stated the following about him, “…he was a pot head & into rock like Hendrix, The Doors, Anti-Flag. I haven’t seen him in person since ‘07…” This comment has led to some discussion in the media and elsewhere regarding Anti-Flag and what Anti-Flag stands for.

    For well over a decade Anti-Flag has endorsed non-violent progressive change and has lobbied for peace, equality, justice, and health care (including mental health care) for all people of America and the world.

    Anti-Flag unconditionally condemns the heinous actions of Mr. Loughner and our heartfelt condolences and best wishes go out to every single person affected by Mr. Loughner’s senseless act of violence. Our message is and always has been very clear, violence in any form is unacceptable.

    What a crock of shit
    wiuth songs like" Kill the rich" "I'm Feeling Slightly Violent" "Your Daddy Was A Rich Man, Your Daddy's Fucking Dead"


    This song was about this Mexican terrorist group
    "Zapatista, Don't Give Up"
    ANTI-FLAG LYRICS - Zapatista, Don't Give Up
    Mexico's Zapatista Movement - then and now
    Mexico's Zapatista Movement - then and now : Mexico History

    "Safe Tonight"
    ANTI-FLAG LYRICS - Safe Tonight

    OH the lkist of non violent songs go on
    ANTI-FLAG LYRICS

    Anyway heres the rest of the story. What a crock of shit

    Will also add somethingfrom the article:

    Both are classy statements, and both are absolutely right. Even though we can know that Loughner apparently listened to both of these bands — which is more of a connection than can be made to him and Glenn Beck or Sarah Palin — neither band is in any way responsible for the murder and mayhem carried out by Loughner. As I noted last week on BigJournalism, when you’re listening to a media voice you agree with and that media voice is not calling for violence and is instead encouraging non-violent solutions to political or personal problems, it’s going to decrease your propensity towards violence. The situation which caused Jared Loughner to target Gabrielle Giffords has little, if anything, to do with the content of his iPod.

    Are you fucking kidding me?

    The media needs to stop blaming everything under the sun for what someone did, and start reporting news and not pushing an agenda based motivation.

    That has nothing to do with the musical groups though, since obviously the media has reported it.

    It has more to do with the group than it does with Sarah Palin but the media just attacked.

    So what is your solution to musical groups who perform these kind of songs?

    Who knows what was in the mind of a completely crazy guy that most likely should have been committed against his will for psychiatric treatment? Anything said is pure speculation.

    First amendment is the solution. As I said the media needs to stop condeming anyone and start reporting the news, and sure they are reporting it now, 5 days after the feeding frinzy and blaming evrything on the tea party Sarah Palin Rush Limbugh. But of course you will refuse to connect the dots.
