People who respond to things in irrational or incoherent way on some or maybe more levels demonstrate the types of thought patterns as exhibited by the gunman. Will all the trolls and hateful sacks of feces who post comments blaming Palin or the Tea Party for the tragedy commit acts of violence themselves? No. But is there a chance that one might? Yes.
Given the ramblings of the suspect prior to the shooting, one can only reason that people with irrational thoughts that border on the derangement as displayed by those who will attack others online for being Palin or Tea Party supporters are capable of committing such violence.
This blogger recommends that anyone directly attacked by someone on Twitter, Facebook or in a forum or comment section of an article keep a record of the screen name of the attacker or attackers.
Anyone deranged enough to think that Palin or Tea Party supporters have something to do with the shooting are deranged enough to hallucinate that Palin or Tea Party supporters are violent and could in fact react psychotically believing they have to defend themselves. As a result, they could become violent themselves being under a false delusion that Palin or Tea Party supporters are violent.
Also, anyone mentally unstable enough to blame Palin or the Tea Party for the tragedy are unstable enough to do anything... for no reason at all.
I'm serious. Keep an eye on these people.
