Apparently the UCC spree shooter left all sorts of profiles around the internet, including a dating website where he described himself as "conservative" and "Republican". Naturally the libs are having a field day, crowing about how the evil man du jour was from The Other Side.
Back on planet Earth, this guy was a libertarian, not a conservative. Gun nut (not a hunter, but gun fetishist), fetish porno addict, into punk / goth, horror movie buff, dislikes "organized religion" AKA religion, into magic / occult / conspiracy theories / other gay shit, definitely does not want children (how uber-traditional), introverted loner, geek, and most importantly from the West Coast.
There are few to no conservatives out West, which is instead populated by libertarians and liberals. Especially in L.A., where he was from before recently moving to Oregon.
Degenerate fetishist, kneejerk "fuck society" attitude regarding authority, looking out only for Number One instead of some greater group -- this loser went against all of the distinctly conservative moral foundations (Haidt labels them purity, authority, and loyalty).
However, "libertarian" usually doesn't appear on dating profile options (and few would understand what you meant anyway), and since he's not liberal, he chose the "conservative" option by default.
But why let his obvious libertarianism get in the way when you can whack off to fantasies about "conservative tears"?
