NYT Still Trying to Spin Gifford's Shooter as Right-Wing

The Communist Manifesto (Oxford World's Classics)
The American public isn't buying it. He was a pot smoking loner who read the “The Communist Manifesto" and thought he could control his dreams.

NYT reported:
…He became an echo chamber for stray ideas, amplifying, for example, certain grandiose tenets of a number of extremist right-wing groups — including the need for a new money system and the government’s mind-manipulation of the masses through language.

…A few days later, during a meeting with a school administrator, Mr. Loughner said that he had paid for his courses illegally because, “I did not pay with gold and silver” — a standard position among right-wing extremist groups. With Mr. Loughner’s consent, that same administrator then arranged to meet with the student and his mother to discuss the creation of a “behavioral contract” for him, after which the official noted: “Throughout the meeting, Jared held himself very rigidly and smiled overtly at inappropriate times.”
