Arapahoe High Gunman Karl Pierson another RWNJ

Well not really, but that is how the left is spinning it because he was pro gun.  Problem is he called himself a socialist.

The Denver Post sleds light on his political persuasion:

karl-piersonIn one Facebook post, Pierson attacks the philosophies of economist Adam Smith, who through his invisible-hand theory pushed the notion that the free market was self-regulating. In another post, he describes himself as “Keynesian.”

“I was wondering to all the neoclassicals and neoliberals, why isn’t the market correcting itself?” he wrote. “If the invisible hand is so strong, shouldn’t it be able to overpower regulations?”

Pierson also appears to mock Republicans on another Facebook post, writing “you republicans are so cute” and posting an image that reads: “The Republican Party: Health Care: Let ‘em Die, Climate Change: Let ‘em Die, Gun Violence: Let ‘em Die, Women’s Rights: Let ‘em Die, More War: Let ‘em Die. Is this really the side you want to be on?”

Carl Schmidt and Brendon Mendelson, both seniors at Arapahoe High, knew Pierson. They said he had political views that were “outside the mainstream,” but they did not elaborate.

Schmidt said the shooter “was an outspoken kid about what he believed and a good political thinker.”

Real Clear Politics has a video of a Student saying he was very proud of being Socialist

But we don’t expect that to stop the left from trying to make the guy a member of the racist Tea Party, Extreme Right Wing and a Life Member of the NRA.
