Lee Ann Colacioppo (Denver Post Editor)


We decided not to have another student apply a label to the shooter -- a label the student likely didn't even understand ..




They left in the shooter's description of himself of a Keynesian though....the Denver Post figured he understood that label. I hate the media so much.

"We decided not to have another student apply a label to the shooter -- a label the student likely didn't even understand .."

So now "journalists" are deciding what words the person speaking really "understands" and which ones they don't - and are only reporting the words that THEY think the person understands!??



Then how did a single fucking word from that ^^^^ fat moron ever get printed!??





btw.... the shooter was clearly a leftwinger, probably adored Obama/Hillary/Biden/Pelosi and ardent watcher of MSNBC and JonStewartStevenColbert.

Thomas Conrad, who had an economics class with Pierson, described him as very opinionated.

"He was exuberant, I guess," Conrad said. "A lot of people picked on him, but it didn't seem to bother him."

In 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. [Yeah well someone else DID elaborate.... but you decided to censor it you shitspewing Leftist hypocrites!]


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

Since so many of those shooters have been "left-wing extremists", I suspect that they see themselves as advancing the cause by provoking anti-gun sentiments (with their mass shootings), which they believe will eventually result in disarming the populace...which is a prerequisite to their Communist utopia.

Maybe some feel that the current life is miserable, and they can accomplish several things at once with an act such as this. Advance part of their overall political agenda, end their suffering, kill those who have wronged them and maybe some who stand in the way of "progress". It certainly could be that way with this animal.

Guys, let's accept this as the gift it is. If the shooter had been a Republican, we'd be looking down the barrel of another AWB. Why are people here even surprised by the media's double standard? They've always been shithead hypocrites.

I've thought this as well, but see - I don't think they're that smart.

The reason they fear guns so much is because they are mostly mentally unstable themselves and know they would easily snap and kill if they had a gun.

So what happens? They either have a gun and snap, or acquire one and snap.

Their projection becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.

No conspiracy needed.

Seems his was also a supporter of gun control and was vocal about it.... Per the blog above:


You might imagine -- as the Denver Post would clearly like you to imagine -- that the boy's "very strong beliefs about gun laws and stuff" located him on the right. The average Low Information Voter, after all, would assume a school shooter's views on "gun laws and stuff" were pro-gun.

Leftwing progressives are masters at deception and revisionist history.

Another student said he was a self-described communist.

Andrew Wixson

I knew him and he was a self-described communist, not a democrat in the truest form. He was very intellectual and read a lot. His motives were described by his speech and debate teammate: “Karl half-jokingly threatened to kill Mr. Murphy, and Mr. Murphy got him suspended for saying that,” Redmond told the Daily News. “Karl wanted to go to the Air Force Academy and they don’t look positively on suspensions so (Karl) felt like Mr. Murphy had ruined his life.”

Put that student's double plus bad thought down the memory hole and notify MiniLuv immediately.



The Colorado school shooter was a tea bagger gun rights nutjobber just like the Newtown tea bagger armed with an AK-15 bush whacker assault rifle, and always has been. We have also always been at war with East Asia, and your two minutes of hate are coming up on the hour!

What a surprise, the Denver Pravda blatantly lying yet again. I caught them parroting Brady bunch bullshit after the VT shooting went down, and wrote them a nastygram, which they refused to acknowledge.

And people wonder why I consider journaltards to be on the same level as whale shit.

The gun grabbers would tell you his politics don't matter…which in reality they don't except to illustrate that shooters are not the stereotypical right wing nuts they portray them as.

However if this kid HAD leaned to the right politically the left would be all over that aspect of the story

Link Posted: 12/15/2013 1:03:21 AM EST
So he rants against gun violence and then commits the same thing he claims to be against.

Yep, he was a progressive libtard. No story here, drop the prewritten need more gun control columns, he doesn't fit the narrative.
Link Posted: 12/15/2013 1:19:17 AM EST
While I obviously disagree with just about everything he said or posted, it's interesting to see a person of that age even thinking about such things, much less having a strong opinion and promoting them. Most in that age bracket today seem more concerned about how many points they have remaining on Xbox Live and making sure they have the most current smartphone than economics and party platforms. We need more conservative young folk with the same enthusiasm.

This is in no way meant to be supportive of the shooter. He was a disturbed individual, and he did us a big favor by removing the option for court proceedings and imprisonment.
Link Posted: 12/15/2013 1:30:48 AM EST
From all accounts the perpetrator was intelligent. He probably understood socialism better than the journalists on the staff of the Denver post.

. Chris Davis, an 18-year-old senior, recalled Mr. Pierson once wore a shirt emblazoned with the letters U.S.S.R. and described himself as a communist. "People definitely disagreed with a lot of that and gave him a hard time," said Mr. Davis, adding that he didn't think the criticism amounted to bullying.

In a way we have lost. Mao Tse-tung once said: "Politics is war without bloodshed, while war is politics with bloodshed." The Left has taken all the high ground in education, Hollywood and, most importantly, the media. This happened over many decades and represents a strategic victory for them. The only way to fight it is to attempt a take-over of as many media outlets as possible (you can also do it with murder/hit teams but that's not legal). Until then, the media has the freedom to feed the public a carefully crafted narrative that best advances their agenda.

This way they can claim no bias, "See, we were honest about him!" when in fact they know most people won't read most of the article.
