Two years ago today, America learned a little more about Amy Bishop, a neurobiology professor who on February 12, 2010 had burst into a faculty meeting and shot three professors dead and wounded three others. As with other mass shooters, Bishop was originally characterized by the mainstream press as a right-wing extremist; but as with other mass shooters, as we learned more, we discovered that it is instead the radical left which seems to have cornered the market on bitterness leading to violence.
Bishop, according to what a family source told the Boston Herald, was “a far-left political extremist who was ‘obsessed’ with President Obama to the point of being off-putting.” It seems that her obsession and leftist bitterness, combined with her being denied tenure at the University of Alabama –Huntsville, was enough to set her off on a deadly shooting spree.
