Although many of the facts have yet to be revealed from the tragic shooting in Colorado, some in the media already have him pegged. Not surprisingly, the national media has characterized him as a pro-life conservative.
Today, Glenn and crew broke down what we do know about the man, and the truth points to something completely different. The truth reveals a very disturbed man with a history of inflicting pain on animals and other human beings. The truth points toward him being a mentally ill psychopath.
Watch a segment from the program below:
Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors.
GLENN: Yeah, this guy in Colorado Springs, he has nothing to do with the pro-life movement. He has nothing to do with that. Yes, he does. Of course, he does.
STU: We don't know that yet. With the Colorado shooter, we don't have that information yet.
GLENN: No, I got that from the news.
STU: No, we don't have that. The police have not released that yet.
GLENN: No, the news has already made him into a pro-life killer.
STU: Oh, believe me, that's definitely true. The New York Times has a big story on it where the first line of the story is, "Even as authorities say they remain uncertain what precisely led a gunman to attack a Planned Parenthood facility in Colorado Springs on Friday," and then an entire column about why this should be applied to conservatives. Like why it's their fault. Why it's something we have to really look at.
Look at the rhetoric, and the political discourse really needs to be looked at. Yet again. It's always on that side. Every time there's something that can be tied to conservatives, it's a reason to look at our political discourse and how harsh it is. Not to even mention, we've been blaming police officers for just wanton murder of black people all over the country. At will, they're just gunning people down constantly in the eyes of the media. That never leads to anything. But it's all about abortion clinic bombings and shootings. Again, we're talking about eight deaths in 40 years.
GLENN: And that includes the three this weekend.
STU: If they do wind up applying.
PAT: And none of them were employees or patients of the clinic. None of them.
GLENN: We're trying to get a hold of -- I want to talk to a local reporter because I just don't trust the national news.
PAT: This is so weird. Because I'm -- I keep seeing from people on Facebook, on my Facebook page, that the shootings didn't even happen at the abortion clinic.
GLENN: Yeah. He had run -- this is what I had heard. That he had run -- he shot -- blood was everywhere. And he ran into the abortion clinic.
PAT: Right. At the end of this thing.
STU: That's where he went to hide out.
PAT: But I can't find that fact in a single story that I read. Have you?
GLENN: I saw it early on.
STU: That he ran in afterwards. I definitely did see that. I want to say it's the Washington Post. I read it yesterday. Find the exact wording of it. But it was worded just like that. This shooting happened. And then he went into Planned Parenthood afterwards. And that's why a lot of people were speculating because there's a bank next door. That it was a bank robbery early --
GLENN: I had that it was a bank robbery.
STU: I don't think that's the case. There's no evidence other than speculation.
GLENN: That's what I had heard early on. When it first broke, that's what they were saying.
GLENN: But this guy was not a conservative. This guy was not a religious guy.
STU: Well, we don't know what he was -- it doesn't look like it though.
PAT: No, he's a peeping Tom charged with animal cruelty for shooting a dog with a pellet gun. Those charges were dropped. Accused of domestic violence and threatening numerous others with violence. His voter registration listed him as a woman. Don't know why. You know, I don't know -- he doesn't look like he's transgendered. Some have speculated that he is. But I think there's little evidence of that. He's not a registered Republican. He's not a practicing Christian. He legally bought the guns. He's a big-time pot smoker. He's apparently into partying with women in bondage and all of that stuff. He's not a Christian. Whether or not he's pro-life, I don't know. But he didn't shoot abortion clinic workers or their patients. So...
GLENN: I have news for you. How a guy is a pothead S&M, bondage, party freak --
PAT: Animal cruelty guy. Peeping Tom.
GLENN: Animal cruelty.
PAT: He's not a Christian.
GLENN: But it also doesn't square with, he really cares about babies. Animal cruelty.
PAT: That's true.
GLENN: Animal cruelty?
STU: That's a good point.
GLENN: This guy is a psycho. When you get into animal cruelty -- remember Jeffy, we had those kids down in Florida, this was 15 years ago that were beating animals --
JEFFY: The llama.
GLENN: The llama with the golf club or whatever. And we made a big deal out of it, that those kids should be charged as an adult because you don't beat an animal to death. That is the first sign of a psycho. That is the first sign -- every psychopath, it has always been like, "Well, they should have known when he beat the animal to death with a golf club." Yeah, you should have known. You should have known. Here's another case. This guy is out shooting animals with a BB gun for fun. He's shooting a dog for fun. That's the sign of a psycho, man. That's not the sign of a Christian. That's a psycho.
And it shows also a pattern. He's inflicting pain on an animal. Then in his sexual habits, he likes to inflict pain.
PAT: No. Not a pro-life guy.
GLENN: This is not a pro-life guy. This is not a Christian. This is a psychopath.
PAT: It's also possible that this -- you know, the other thing they're trying to throw around today especially is that he ranted about "no more baby parts." Well, it's very likely that's coming from Planned Parenthood people. I don't put a lot of stock in that. Who knows if he was there with anything to do with Planned Parenthood or anything they've been doing. There's just no -- we've seen no concrete evidence. The police certainly haven't confirmed.
GLENN: Especially if he shot people off that and then ran in for a hideout. I would not put it past Planned Parenthood.
PAT: Not at all. Not at all. They're liars to begin with.
GLENN: He might have come in and said, "You got any body parts around here?" He might have said something about that.
PAT: Might have.
GLENN: Ranting about body parts. What does that even mean?
STU: My understanding is that -- at least the reports are that he said that to the officers. That's what they're saying. I don't know -- again, none of this stuff is fleshed out.
GLENN: None of this excuses his behavior. I want to make it very, very clear. We condemn this guy, no matter if he's an atheist or a Christian. It doesn't matter. We condemn him and everything that he's done.
STU: Oh, absolutely.
GLENN: There's been eight -- if you count these three, there have been eight people that have been killed because of abortion by a -- a pro-life psychopath.
STU: I mean --
GLENN: In 40 years.
STU: Yeah. I mean, obviously a lot of people have made the comparisons to 50 million abortions. That doesn't mean you kill eight people. Obviously. And people who would do or would consider such a thing are awful, horrific people, and you know, the worst people in our society.
But it's such an interesting thing of how you rush to making this into this wave of violence, when really there are -- I don't know if I could name a movement that is politically -- I mean, look at movements overseas. Separatist movements. Think of anything. I mean, you go to environmentalists. They have lots -- I don't know if they have eight murders or not. But it wouldn't surprise me if they did. There certainly have been multiple times they've gone in and taken guns and taken people hostage. They've done lots of terror around businesses and such.
You know, look, eight people. As you point out, 15 people were shot in Chicago and killed -- not that got shot.
GLENN: Yeah, 82 people were shot this last weekend. Eighty-two people were shot in Chicago.
STU: In one weekend.
STU: Eight people over 40 years is -- you want it to be zero, but it's almost impossible to prevent something of that scale.
GLENN: Well, in 40 years, they almost doubled the death toll. They were one shy of doubling the death toll in one weekend in Chicago.
GLENN: Where should our concern be?
STU: It's a priority. What are you going to focus your energies on? I don't think the pro-life movement is a legitimate target for that. I mean, you know, you --
GLENN: Everything is agenda driven now.
GLENN: Absolutely everything is agenda driven now.
