Craigslist Killer a bigoted Republican

Although he was smart and clean cut, Craigslist killer, Phillip Markoff belonged to the college Republicans:

"Just a nice, clean-cut boy wanting to succeed. That type that you'd like to mother," she said. "I just still can't believe it."

At college, he was a member of the College Republicans and was fairly unremarkable except for the occasional offensive comment, said ex-classmate Joe Coe.

"He was someone that had issues with people of color, had issues with women," Coe told CBS.

"He gave off a creepy vibe," said another SUNY classmate. NY Daily News

Of course being a Republican doesn't make you a serial killer. Being a bigot doesn't make you a serial killer, but you wonder what incites bigots to do terrible things? Do the media and politicians have a responsibility to NOT encourage violence against others?
