Amy Bishop -- Another Violent Far-Left Loon

It seems that every day we learn more and more about Amy Bishop, the professor who shot and killed three of her colleagues and wounded two others after receiving news that she had been denied tenure [here]. It turns out that she had also shot and killed her brother back in 1986 but had not been prosecuted because local authorities decided that the incident had been an "accident". What is more, she and her husband had also been suspected of being involved in a plot to bomb a Harvard professor [here].

Now it turns out that the woman was also an Obamaphile. The Boston Herald reports:
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.
[emphasis mine]

Why am I not surprised?

Yet the MSM continues to suggest that violent nuttiness is exclusively a right-wing phenomenon.

I might also note that violent left-wing political activists have threatened figure skater, Johnny Weir because one of his costumes incorporates fox fur. [here]

Jim Geraghty concurs: "she [Amy Bishop] interrupts that "right-wing maniacs go on shooting sprees" narrative that the media loves so much."

The phrase “Amy Bishop Was Obsessed with Obama” can be read two ways:
1) This woman thought positively of him and wished him no harm
…but infinitely more likely since she clearly had violent tendencies toward people who held some type of authority…
2) She was negatively obsessed. Like the three people she killed the other day (who happen to be people of color) the Pres. probably is/was on her "Crazy-Town Hit List."

Amy Bishop killed 3 people – pretty much all the minority faculty at UAHuntsville. Dr. Podila was from India, Dr. Adriel Johnson and Dr. Maria Davis were African American. Truly fascinating theory (sic), if you translate "obsessed" as she "worshipped" the first African American president.

Anyway, this politicized discussion is distracting people with craziness – why aren't there more posts which mourn the loss of these three doctors? And don't forget to show concerns for the three other people she clipped and/or seriously wounded...a Mexican American, and two Anglo Americans.
