Okay, One Last Point

Also "well-liked in conservative circles."

Earlier I gave credence to the unproven speculation that Jared Lee Loughner got his obsession over grammar and mind control from David Wynn Miller. I said "maybe, maybe not."

Well, I'll keep an open mind, but it should be noted that if Loughner was a disciple of Miller's he had a funny way of showing it: Loughner's writing is nothing at all like Miller's. Nothing at all. Loughler writes in childish syllogisms, the wisdom of the town idiot (with normal capitalization). Miller writes in something that looks like moron machine code (and all caps).

Further, their reasons for obsessing over grammar are entirely different. Loughler thought that grammar could be used by the state for mind control, and he believed that by hijacking and changing grammar, he could control his own mind, and enter, literally, into a heaven-like dreamworld.

Miller seems to write in Dalek-speak not to change the world but to change his legal category -- he thinks this is the way states write (I am guessing he's getting this from captions in legal opinions or legislative code) and ergo, absurdly, if he writes the way states do in lawsuit captions or legislation he will gain the attributes of statehood. Kind of a Cargo Cult, backwards-logic dementia.

Point is, they don't write the same and they don't write oddly for the same purpose. They have nothing at all in common, not even the word "grammar" -- Loughner speaks of "grammar" whereas Miller speaks of "syntax."

I don't mind the writer of that article I cited doing some Internet Detective-work but at the end of the day this is a swing and a miss, unless there's more coming -- they have nothing at all in common except both are stupid, near illiterate, crazy, and assign a lunaticly-high-value to the power of grammar and/or syntax.

Loughner easily could have signaled his interest in the "ideas" of DAVID-WYNN: MILLER -- by simply writing his name the same way. He didn't. And that's the easiest thing in the world to do. (See the author line of each of the last four posts. Pretty simple!)

And yet, despite these two having nothing in common, no evidence that Loughner ever even heard of David Wynn: Miller, we are assured that Loughner followed in the thoughts of David-Wynn: Miller, and of course that David-Wynn: Miller is "well-liked in conservative circles."

Fuck them, fuck them all. I am sick of the unending blood libel. Calling someone a "murderer" or inciter of murder isn't very civil now is it?

Picture thanks to Uncle Jefe.

I Forgot My Point: This Internet Detective piece -- which is almost certainly in the category of "nice try, but wrong" -- is the only evidence they have that he has anything to do with the right at all, so of course it is the big idea of the day.

It shows how desperate they are.
