Arapahoe High School shooter Karl Pierson was a socialist who openly ranted against the Republican party. "Sadly Pierson is just the latest in a long line of left-wing lunatics to commit these horrific acts," Sean Hannity stated Monday. Despite such obvious associations, the media continues to attach such instances to right-wing politics. "Well, as I was the first to say and other people ripped it off – liberalism is an aspect of mental illness," Ann Coulter weighed in, "So it is not surprising to the extent any of the political violence or any assassinations are political, it is always, always, always liberals."
