Gee, it almost sounds like the guy who went on a shooting rampage at a church in Knoxville may have been bitter because of his difficult economic circumstances, and his frustration might have been exploited by hate-mongering right-wing ideologues who encouraged him to blame liberal social issues for the country’s problems.

The shotgun-wielding suspect in Sunday’s mass shooting at the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church was motivated by a hatred of “the liberal movement,” and he planned to shoot until police shot him, Knoxville Police Chief Sterling P. Owen IV said this morning.
Adkisson, 58, of Powell wrote a four-page letter in which he stated his “hatred of the liberal movement,” Owen said. “Liberals in general, as well as gays.”
Adkisson said he also was frustrated about not being able to obtain a job, Owen said.
No information in the article on whether he was “clinging” to his gun.
