According to this article by the UK Daily Mail: Gunman linked to white extremists: Loner charged after shooting top politician in the head and killing six

The gunman who shot a U.S. congresswoman in the head could have had links to a white extremist group, it emerged last night.

Jared Loughner, 22, has been charged over the attack in which six died and 13 others were wounded.

The Department of Homeland Security was reportedly investigating claims that Loughner, described as a cannabis-smoking loner, was linked to American Renaissance – an extremist anti-government, anti-immigration and anti-Semitic group.

Arizona Republican Gabrielle Giffords, the target of the mass killing, is ‘the first Jewish female elected to such a high position in the US government

Mrs Giffords is the granddaughter of Akiba Hornstein, the son of a Lithuanian rabbi who in the 1940s moved from New York to Tucson. He later changed his name to Giff Giffords in an effort to avoid anti-Semitism.

Loughner had ranted on the internet about his hatred of federal government.

According to numerous reports, the alleged assailant in the weekend shooting in Arizona has not cooperated with authorities, but a reported memo from the Department of Homeland Security procured by Fox News’ Jennifer Griffin provides some clues.On her Greta Wire blog, Fox News host Greta Van Susteren published the DHS memo which suggests that Loughner might be be linked to an “anti-Semitic” group called AmRen (or American Renaissance.)

Fox reported that The memo states that there is “no direct connection” between Loughner and the group, “but strong suspicion is being directed at AmRen / American Renaissance. Suspect is possibly linked to this group. (through videos posted on his MySpace and YouTube account.). The group’s ideology is anti-government, anti-immigration, anti-ZOG (Zionist Occupational Government), anti-Semitic.”

The memo also includes information about the suspect’s mother, who works for the Pima County Board of Supervisors and notes that Loughner has multiple arrests but no criminal record.

MEMO:
“The investigation has been taken over by the FBI, and is being run through the Tucson Command Post. Here’s what can be confirmed at this time (1800 hrs)… * Gabrielle Giffords Is in ICU.* Federal judge John Roll is deceased. He did rule on a 32 million dollar civil rights lawsuit in February, 2010. That ruling brought death threats to Roll and his family, and for a time he was given a protection detail.* 6 deaths attributed to the shooting. 19 total people hit by gunfire.* suspect’s mother works for the Pima County Board of Supervisors* the suspect has multiple arrests … But no criminal record? Intervention by someone?* no direct connection – but strong suspicion is being directed at AmRen / American Renaissance. Suspect is possibly linked to this group. (through videos posted on his myspace and YouTube account.). The group’s ideology is anti government, anti immigration, anti ZOG (Zionist Occupational Government), anti Semitic. Gabrielle Gifford is the first Jewish female elected to such a high position in the US government. She was also opposite this group’s ideology when it came to immigration debate.* DHS have a list of names and dates of birth of all victims.* the ACTIC is still playing a major role in the investigation… Computer forensics is cleaning up the surveillance videos, and images from around the scene, and involved in the investigation – working together, was MCSO, DPS, Phoenix PD, ICE, and of course the FBI. It did just come in from the command post, that the federal judge was Not originally scheduled to attend the meeting, according to wife. She stated that he received a phone call about an hour before and was invited to attend. Wrong place – wrong time. For the planning side, there are impromptu memorials popping up all over the state, but the largest one is downtown phoenix, at the capital.”

Fox News also reported that Loughner purchased a firearm legally after passing an FBI background check, the company’s vice president of hunting operations told FoxNews.com on Sunday.

He did so”immediately and without incident,” said Matt French, speaking from the Sportsman’s Warehouse’s Utah headquarters.

“To my knowledge, the firearm purchase was without incident,” French said.

Among Loughner’s long list of favorite books in his YouTube profile are Hitler’s Mein Kampf, The Communist Manifesto, Siddhartha.
