Does your hypothesis also support the reason why the left-wing nuts in the past; the anarchists, weather underground, ELF, etc, chose to employ violence as a means to an end?
Were those characters a function of mental health combined with left-wing propaganda as well?

Honestly, I think that's a fair question. People who are unbalanced tend to find media or other materials that support their views and at times they will use those materials to justify their violence - left, right or whatever. But it's hard to deny that the daily rants and fiery outrage heard on talk radio, on Fox and on conspiracy-minded websites are encouraging these crazies.
Check out some of this Jerad goofball's videos. Each one of them has comments from people calling him an actor in a hoax, that this whole thing was a false flag by the anti-gun-rights people. In other words, still more anger and paranoia, encouraging the next spree killer.
I believe in free speech, but I also believe each of us has a moral responsibility to consider the consequences of our speech. The internet has made it easier than ever to wrap oneself in the strangely comforting cloak of paranoia. Acting on that paranoia -- i.e., instigating a revolution against the oppressors -- thereby becomes a logical next step to these people.
