The War on Grammar

Jared Loughner is alleged to have been influenced by somebody named :David-Wynn: Miller who seems to be completely around the bend, but like many such people exhibits occasional bits of disturbing acuity.
The reason I use a full colon and a hyphen in my name, the first full colon, which is full colon David, it means for the David hyphen Wynn. That’s my given name, and it’s also a noun, because it uses a prepositional phrase. … Because I use prepositional phrases, through punctuation, which is classified as hieroglyphics, which makes me a life, l-i-f-e. Now, when you don’t punctuate your name … David is an adjective, Wynn is an adjective, Miller is a pronoun. Two adjectives are a condition of modification, opinion, presumption, which modifies the pronoun, pro means no on noun. So therefore, I’m not a fact. I’m a fiction.
Here's a clip from his own website, all punctuation and capitalization as in the original:
~1 FOR THESE PAGES OF THESE CHANGES ARE WITH THESE CLAIMS OF THESE NEW-FACTS AND CORRECTIONS WITH THIS PAST-USAGE OF THESE COMMUNICATIONS FOR OUR CHANGING-WORLD BY THIS AUTHOR: PLENIPOTENTIARY-JUDGE: David-Wynn: Miller.
~2 FOR THIS POSTMASTER AND JUDGE: David-Wynn: Miller OF THE CONTRACT-STATES-WORLD-CORPORATION WITH THIS KNOWLEDGE OF THESE C.-S.-S.-C.-S.-L.-CLAIMS IS WITH THESE CLAIMS OF THESE MATHEMATICAL-QUANTUM-NOW-TIME AND SPACE-FACTS.

~3 FOR THESE EDUCATIONAL-CORRECTIONS OF THE MODIFICATION OF THE ENGLISH AND OTHER-LANGUAGES-WORLD-WIDE ARE WITH THESE CLAIMS OF THESE CORRECTIONS WITH THESE MODIFYING-LANGUAGES AND COMMUNICATIONS WHERE AN ADVERB-USE (PROCEDURAL-METHODS OF THE FICTION-COMMUNICATIONS) WITH THE NOUN(NO-NO) FOR THE CREATION OF A WORD THAT IS VOID OF ANY MEANING BY THESE FICTIONAL-SIMULATION-PERSONS OF THE COURT
This is correct. If you want to be an authentic radical and attack the ultimate roots of oppression, to go after the most basic underlying errors of the mind, what better target than grammar? Why do we have to toil under the yoke of the stale and arbitrary divisions of reality into things, actions, properties, and relationships? Oh, your so-called academic radicals might be satisfied with letting colorless green ideas sleep furiously, but the true radical will chair very underground purple throw the! Death to syntax!

How you get from there to shooting up a crowd of citizens is not clear, to say the least.
I am afraid we are not yet rid of God because we still have faith in grammar.

As great a coincidence as it may be, I am going to guess that they independently made this great discovery.
