The Bizarre Wisconsin Connection to the Tucson Shootings

Oh, great:
Jared Lee Loughner’s rants about grammar and mind control track closely to the writings of a conspiracy theorist who believes that is how the government controls the populace, one leading group says – and the man tells POLITICO he agrees with some of Loughner’s statements.

The far-right activist, David Wynn Miller, said in a telephone interview that he didn’t know Loughner, but agreed with his statement in a YouTube video that “the government is implying mind control and brainwash on the people by controlling grammar.”

“Absolutely I would agree with it,” said Miller, 62, a former tool-and-die maker from Milwaukee who claims 1 billion “students” worldwide.

This Miller dude is a piece of work. Here's what the Southern Poverty Law Center and the ADL have to say about him. Here's a Cap Times article discussing accusations of brainwahing against Miller. The obligatory Wiki page. Miller's own crazy, crazy website, which -- of course -- is written in all caps.

First - I don't think we have to worry too much state image-wise since the guy is not so much from "Wisconsin" proper as really from Milwaukee. The name "Milwaukee" as you know being from the Algonquian word meaning "Wisconsin's anus".

In fact recent geologic data proves that the greater Milwaukee area does NOT originate from the eastern shores of WI but instead is a large chunk of New Jersey that broke off, went renegade and traveled up the St Lawrence Seaway and through the Great lakes before the corrupt Sheriff of Secaucus could catch up with it and shake it down for the protection money it owed him. The brash Milwaukee landmass sidled up to the innocent and trusting Jefferson County (who was a shy farm girl who didn't get out much except church meetings) And without so much as a how-do-you-do, Milwaukee rammed it's Waukesha right in there and made itself at home. Some day Secaucus will find Milwaukee and drag it's sorry ass back to a shallow grave in the Hudson County landfill. I need not add "where it belongs", do I ??

Well, that was just my Historical preamble, I'll be back with my actual on-topic analysis later some time. cheerz
