Anti-War Protester Shoots Soldier on July 4th

Matthew J.Marren hated America’s imperial ambitions. At least he was told he did, so on Independence Day he decided to protest as any left leaning “patriot” would do, he tried to murder Senior Airman Jonathan Schrieken, and when that failed he killed himself on the wounded veteran’s lawn.


Marren was pronounced dead at Lourdes Medical Center of Burlington County in Willingboro later Wednesday night.

Schrieken was taken to Cooper University Hospital in Camden where was listed in critical but stable condition yesterday afternoon, Milavsky said.

Schrieken is stationed at McGuire Force Base. He works as a loadmaster for the 6th Airlift Squadron.

Marren’s aunt, Terina Henderson of Trion, Ga., said she spoke to Marren’s mother yesterday who told her Marren left two notes, one in his home and one in his car, indicating he was upset with the government.

She said she did not know the exact wording in the notes, but said Marren was “mad at the government and wanted to make a statement … that’s why he did what he did on the Fourth of July.”

I wonder what he was mad at the government about? Hmmm.

So this 22 year old kid, who’s been taught by his leftist teachers for the last eight years that America is an “evil empire” whose soldiers commit atrocity after atrocity, shoots a soldier. Who’s to blame? The kid who has been brainwashed by propaganda since he was 14 or so? Or the adults who knew this was propaganda and that it might lead to this, but in the name of “social justice” taught it anyway.

LGF has a scoop from one of his readers, and illustrates how the complicit media is covering up this story by leaving out the important fact about the anti-government suicide note.

It’s almost like they feel guilty.
