The Daily Beast and the corporate media are attempting to link the latest shooting to the Tea Party.
The man authorities named responsible for Thursday night’s shooting in a Louisiana movie theater is listed as a member of the Tea Party Nation and has a profile page on the group’s website.
John Russell Houser, described as a 59-year old man and “kind of drifter,” is said to have killed two people at the theater and then committed suicide when police responded to the shooting.
The profile page without activity will be used by the media to demonize the Tea Party and portray its members as gun-wielding psychopaths.

Another "tea party" right wing extremist involved in a mass shooting. What a strange and unlikely coincidence.
