Rightwinger in Oakland Cop Shootout

A 45-year-old parolee, described as angry at left-wing politicians, opened fire on California Highway Patrol officers on an Oakland freeway.

He was wearing body armor and had multiple firearms in his vehicle.
He was angry about his unemployment and about "what's happening to our country" and "all these left-wing agenda items."

The man's mother believes "eventually, I think we're going to be caught up in a revolution." But she said she had told her son many times that "he didn't have to be on the front lines."

It is no coincidence that angry Americans can't tell the difference between rightwing pro-business government and any "left-wing agenda." The rightwing media has pushed the line so far that what most people consider leftwing is anything that doesn't fall in line with non-regulatory, no taxes on the rich, Christian fundamentalist, imperialism.
