TN Shooter was a fan of Savage, Hannity, O'Reilly and Limbaugh.

Why am I not surprised?

Usually because when you live on a steady diet of hate speech like this nut did, eventually a few screws come loose.

The Knoxnews.com is reporting:

Inside the house, officers found "Liberalism is a Mental Health Disorder" by radio talk show host Michael Savage, "Let Freedom Ring" by talk show host Sean Hannity, and "The O'Reilly Factor," by television talk show host Bill O'Reilly.

The shotgun-wielding suspect in Sunday's mass shooting at the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church was motivated by a hatred of "the liberal movement," and he planned to shoot until police shot him, Knoxville Police Chief Sterling P. Owen IV said this morning.



Shooter's manifesto

I hope this gives the wingnut fans of these right wing hate mongers a wake up call...but it probably won't.

If any of that sounds familiar, it’s because you’ve been hearing the exact same claims coming from the right wing's most prominent stars and spokespeople for years. It’s all there: liberals are ruining the country, Democrats are letting the terrorists win, liberals hate America, the liberal media is bamboozling the nation.

I first started hearing Conservative hate speech during Clinton's presidency. In 2000, Bush promised to bring a nicer tone to politics and be a uniter. I thought to myself, "Yeah but it's the Conservatives who are coursening the debate. So why trust them?"

And they never have stopped bashing liberals in the most hateful manner possible. Conservatives and their pundits constantly talk about liberals as being "diseased", "traitors" and "Al Qaeda sympathizers." Conservatives are just not nice people.

I think more Americans are turning that garbage off, but it saddens me it took them this long to figure it out.
