MSM covers up Christopher Dorner’s hard-Left political views

Blogger extraordinaire Sooper Mexican noticed something interesting about MSM coverage of Christopher Dorner’s manifesto: Most news outlets are publishing a censored version that is only 11 pages long:

By contrast, the uncensored manifesto is 21 pages long.

What was left out?  Quite a bit.

  • Dorner’s statements in support of gun control (“Who in there right mind needs a fucking silencer!!! who needs a freaking SBR AR15? No one”),
  • his attack on President Barack Obama’s critics (“You question his birth certificate, his educational and professional accomplishments, and his judeo-christian beliefs”),
  • his adoration of First Lady Michelle Obama’s hair (“I love your new bangs, Mrs. Obama”),
  • his admiration for Joe Biden (“I’ve always been a fan of yours and consider you one of the few genuine and charismatic politicians”),
  • his support for Hillary Clinton (“You’ll make one hell of a president in 2016”),
  • his fondness for former President Bill Clinton (“He was always my favorite president”),
  • his confidence in San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro (“He’s [good people] and I have faith and confidence in him”),
  • his love of MSNBC and CNN (“Chris Matthews, Joe Scarborough, Pat Harvey, Brian Williams, Soledad Obrien, Wolf Blitzer, Meredith Viera, Tavis Smiley, and Anderson Cooper, keep up the great work and follow Cronkite’s lead”),
  • his criticism of the National Rifle Association (“Wayne LaPierre, President of the NRA, you’re a vile and inhumane piece of shit”) ,
  • and his hatred of George Zimmerman (“Too bad Trayvon didn’t smash your skull completely open, Zim”).

In short, the MSM omitted the parts of the manifesto where Dorner reveals he is a card-carrying liberal Democrat.

Did the media outlets disclose that they left out this material? No they did not.

FOX 11’s headline says “READ Murder Suspect Chris Dorner’s Online Manifesto” then adds this qualifier, “NOTE: At the request of the Los Angeles Police Department, FOX 11 has removed all names mentioned in this manifesto for their safety. Also note that we have redacted some offensive language contained within this statement.”

KTLA 5’s headline reads: “Christopher Dorner’s Manifesto (Disturbing Content and Language).” The story does not mention that any material is excluded.

The Hollywood Reporter noticed some of the omissions:

[W]hile several media outlets have chosen to report on the contents of the manifesto, most have been leaving out Dorner’s views on the media. In some cases where news media allegedly presents the entire manifesto, the portion about the media isn’t included.

At the website of Los Angeles TV station KTLA, for example, a headline reads: “Christopher Dorner’s Manifesto (Disturbing Content and Language).” What follows appears to be the entire manifesto, minus the paragraphs where Dorner discusses the media. At the end, KTLA notes that it “has removed the names of a number of officers out of respect for their privacy,” though it doesn’t mention that entire paragraphs pertaining to the media are missing.

See Sooper Mexican’s post for much more.

We can certainly understand redacting the names of individual officers (for safety reasons), but what is the rationale for excising Dorner’s hard-Left political views?


Master murder-politicizer Piers Morgan: Don’t politicize Dorner murder spree

Disturbing: Supporters, admirers leap to alleged murderer Christopher Dorner’s defense

  • lissa

    That IS a rhetorical question you ask in your last line, isn’t it?

    That Piers Morgan has stated this was a murder committed by a deranged criminal and should not be politicized, as opposed to the oh-so-sane Lanza, Loughner, Cho, Holmes, etc etc etc, shows the tolerated hypocrisy of leftist media. Will this finally be the wake-up call the public needs? (the unenlightened, of course)

      Unfortunately, about 50% of the public can’t see the forest for the trees.

      • Chuck Pelto

        Just 50%?

        I’m going into a meeting Saturday. The bi-annual organizational meeting of my county’s Republican Party. I doubt if even 50% of them would accept this opinion of the media.

        Heck the past chair was married to the daughter of the local paper owner. He, in my personal opinion, was part of the proverbial problem. And most of the people in the group just loved him.

        • BristolGOP Backup

          The Republican Party is a clubs whose purpose it is to elect and re-elect politicians. Their job is not to promote good governance or any particular ideology.

          If you want them to think like you, then you have to go and take it over.

          BE the Republican Party you want them to be. That’s what I did.

  • journogal

    Just a random notice here… this nut bag is admitting that Trayvon attacked George Zimmerman. I thought the MSM meme was the Zimmerman did it to himself. No wonder why the media isn’t reporting it.

    On a more serious point, this again goes against the MSM meme that the only violent ones in the country come from the right. Right now, the “real journalists” are in meeting, trying to come up with ways to tie this either back to Palin, upcoming sequestering, Romney, Bush or all of the above.

    You just know that if his manifesto criticized Democrats and praised conservative media and politicians, that would be the entire focus of the media. Remember how the media pounced on RUMORS that Loughner and Holmes were affiliated with Tea Party groups, and did everything they could to push that angle until it turned out to be untrue?

    • Frustrated Teacher

      Actually, even if his political views were kind of fuzzy, the left would blame the right. Remember the blame after Gabby Giffords shooting and the digging to see if the guy was a Tea Partier? None of that going on with this liberal POS….wonder why….why, because the media is both lying to you and withholding important information that doesn’t fit their narrative or agenda. Despicable!

        What Is Politics?

        A little boy goes to his dad and asks, “What is politics?”

        Dad says, “Well son, let me try to explainit this way: I’m the breadwinner of the family, so let’s call me capitalism.

        Your Mom, she’s the administrator of the money, so we’ll call her the
        Government. We’re here to take care of your needs, so we’ll call you the people.

        The nanny, we’ll consider her the Working Class. And your baby brother, we’llcall him the Future. Now, think about that and see if that makes sense,”

        So the little boy goes off to bed thinkingabout what dad had said.

        Later that night, he hears his baby brother
        crying, so he gets up to check on him. He finds that the baby has severely
        soiled his diaper. So the little boy goes to his parents’ room and finds his
        mother sound asleep. Not wanting to wake her, he goes to the nanny’s room.

        Finding the door locked, he peeks in the keyhole and sees his father in bed withthe nanny. He gives up and goes back to bed.

        The next morning, the little boy says to his father, “Dad, I think I understand the concept of politics now.”

        The father says, “Good son, tell me inyour own words what you think politics is all about.”

        The little boy replies, “Well, while Capitalism is screwing the Working Class, the Government is sound asleep, the People are being ignored and the Future is in deep poo.”

        Appropriate aye???

    • bodhisoma

      Daniel whined, “…if his manifesto criticized Democrats and praised conservative media and politicians, that would be the entire focus of the media.”

      Either Daniel didn’t read the manifesto to which he’s asserting facts, or he did read it and he’s lying. Given that Fox viewers are less educated on issues than people who view nothing at all, this isn’t surprising.


      Praise and support of conservative politicians:

      “The honorable President George H.W. Bush, they never give you enough credit for your successful Presidency. You were always one of my favorite Presidents (2nd favorite). I hope your health improves greatly. You are the epitome of an American and service to country.”

      “I didn’t vote in this last election as my choice of candidate, John Huntsman, didn’t win the primary candidacy for his party.”

      “General Petraeus, you made a mistake that the majority of men make once, twice, or unfortunately many times in a lifetime. You are human. You thought with your penis. It’s okay.I personally believe you should have never resigned and told your critics to shove it. You only answer to two people regarding the affair, your wife and children, period. I hope you return to government service to your country as it is visibly in your DNA.”

      Praise and support of conservative media:

      “…Joe Scarborough …keep up the great work and follow Cronkite’s lead. I hold many of you in the same regard as Tom Brokaw and the late Peter Jennings.”

      “Jeffrey Toobin and David Gergen, you are political geniuses and modern scholars.”


      So it would appear that the media is, in fact, ignoring praise of conservative media and politicians.

      Inconvenient facts, to be sure.

      Do I expect Daniel to stop repeating things he should have known to be false and now knows, without a doubt, are false? Of course not.

      • Phryj

        “Whined”? Calling out the hypocrisy and dishonesty of the media is whining?

        And you left out the bits where Dorner heaped praise on Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. And his support for the Dems’ efforts to eviscerate the 2nd Amendment.

        And if George H.W. Bush (who signed one of the largest tax hikes in history into law), and Joe “MSNBC’s pet Republican” Scarborough (who’s sole purpose on MSNBC is to attack REAL conservatives) are YOUR idea of conservatives, you don’t know the meaning of the word.

        Don’t comment on things you know nothing about. You only make yourself look stupid.

        • bodhisoma

          As predicted, Daniel continues his lies unabated, writing, “Calling out the hypocrisy and dishonesty of the media is whining?”

          No, pretending to be the victim of a bias that doesn’t exist is whining. Daniel said if Dorner praised conservatives the media would be all over it (implying Dorner didn’t). Dorner praised conservatives and I’ve quoted a few examples above.

          Therefore the bias Daniel claims exists, doesn’t.

          “And you left out the bits where Dorner heaped praise on Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. And his support for the Dems’ efforts to eviscerate the 2nd Amendment.”

          I didn’t include them because they’re not in dispute. Daniel asserts Dorner praises liberals, I say Dorner praises liberals.

          I can see why Daniel wants to change the subject now that he’s been caught lying about what Dorner wrote and a willful blind eye by the media. Obvious distraction is obvious.

          “And if George H.W. Bush (who signed one of the largest tax hikes in history into law), and Joe “MSNBC’s pet Republican” Scarborough (who’s sole purpose on MSNBC is to attack REAL conservatives) are YOUR idea of conservatives, you don’t know the meaning of the word.”

          I know, silly me, thinking the candidate selected by the caucus of the most electable conservative party was a conservative. I don’t know how on earth I made that mistake.

          Then Daniel shifts from complaining Dorner doesn’t praise conservatives to saying Bush Jr. (2-term Republican President) and Joe Scarborough (6-year Republican Congressman), complaining neither qualifies as sufficiently conservative. Bush because of tax hikes, he doesn’t quite explain his objection to Scarborough.

          Pure misdirection. All Daniel is doing is moving the goalposts, forever claiming that unless Dorner proclaims love for who he, personally, holds up as being sufficiently conservative, it doesn’t count. Well that’s convenient.

          Even more amusing, Daniel doesn’t even *attempt* to address John Huntsman (Republican Presidential candidate and ambassador under Bush Sr), General Petraeus (life-long Republican and named the second most influential American conservative by The Daily Telegraph) or David Gergen (conservative advisor who served under the administrations of Nixon, Ford, Reagan). It would look silly to say THEYR’E not conservative so Daniel just ignores what Dorner had to say about them.

          “Don’t comment on things you know nothing about. You only make yourself look stupid.”

          …says the guy who just got rhetorically annihilated.

          Bottom line; Dorner had significant praise for conservatives. Daniel’s premise that Dorner didn’t praise conservatives is therefore obviously and explicitly incorrect and, by extension, his conclusion of an MSM bias as well.

          • Phryj

            “Bias that doesn’t exist”???
            Are you insane? Or just willfully delusional?

            And Hunstman and Gergen aren’t even remotely conservative. Huntsman was by far the furthest left of the 2012 GOP candidates and even served as an ambassador UNDER OBAMA. And Gergen is one of those so-called conservatives that the media loves to trot out to attack real conservatives with.

            Petraeus was a military officer, so he wasn’t even allowed to voice his actual political views and has dropped out of public life completely since the scandal that ended his career. How conservative he actually is is unknown.

            You say there’s no bias simply because you refuse to see it. Go back to Media Matters. It’s painfully obvious you’re uncomfortable going outside of the left-wing echo chamber.

      • Jillane Kent

        What are his core beliefs? Though one should take the ramblings of a deranged murderer with the proverbial grain of salt, his manifesto made many of them abundantly clear. Anti-NRA (hopes the LaPierre’s family and friends are all slaughtered) pro gun control (irony) pro gay marriage (which given the news, Sonny, would appear at odds with the Chick Fil A support that I do not recall seeing when I read the manifest), pro Trayvon ( liberal pet project), etc

    I think we should stop referring to them as simply “the media”. No, just label them progressives with cameras, mics and presses.

    Until we do something like that, they are treated like they are *the* standard, *the* mainstream, *the* center.

    No need to get mean or nasty about it either. Just demystify what the “press” originally referred to in the Constitution. Instead of being some anointed class of people, the leftists on tv, radio, in magazines and newspapers are simply citizens (well, not Piers) with a viewpoint with an audience.

          RE: Binghamton

          Thanks for that one.

          Finding it on Wikipedia, it has a lot of other mass shootings listed towards the bottom of the page. Including links to them.

          I’ve not checked them all, but the only one, so far, that I’ve found that is NOT perpetrated by a likely ‘liberal’, is the Wisconsin Sikh Temple shooting, which was perpetrated by a White Supremacist.

          The Westroads Mall (Omaha) was a punk kid with mental issues. Considering how liberal Omaha is (I used to live there and shopped that mall), odds are he came from a liberal household.

          The University of Alabama was a liberal professor who didn’t make ‘tenure’. And she had murdered her brother in the presence of her mother 20 years earlier. And the ‘Braintree’ PD—more like Braindead—called it an accident.

          Chadron HS (Ohio) was another punk kid. Considering Ohio, I suspect another liberal household. But am uncertain.

          The point being that again, we’re finding a preponderance of evidence that ‘liberals’ are the principle problem amongst US.

          Liberals are, by and large, Godless. They have no moral compass to keep them from acting out when they don’t get their way.

          It was reported, some time ago, that 20% of the population in the US are sociopaths, i.e., people without morals and/or empathy towards others.

          It would be interesting to see a study on the number of socio/psycho-paths broken out by political/religious belief systems.

    Followed a link to Huffington Post on this story. Of course, they edited out all the things that the other media outlets did. What was interesting was, despite showing Dorner in a military uniform and editing out most of the liberal leaning crap, many of the reactions were supportive of Dorner. Even some going as far as cheering on his killing spree! I see embarassing threads going down the memory hole in Huff ‘n Puffs future.

      He’s a hate-filled human being out for revenge. People are capable of such behavior regardless of personal politics.

    • TocksNedlog

      And WHO is accusing Dorner of being a ‘liar’?

  • lillymckim

    Surprised the state run media isn’t reporting the news?
    Dr. Ben Carson spoke at the Annual White House Prayer Breakfast this morning and I just checked ABC, CBS, NBC, online news and I could not find “one mention” of what Dr Carson said!
    I don’t watch the TV State run media outlets so I’m not sure if they mentioned Dr. Ben Carson’s words but seeing how he was not “praising & bowing to King Obama you can bet we wont be seeing it anytime soon!

  • Liberals Needhelp

    He lost his connection to the LAPD by getting fired over what he claims was an unfair hearing over his complaint re: his female training partner….and a few days before his first two murders…he was disconnected from the Navy. He lost his key power roles in the two organizations he held close and identified to. No special title, power, brotherhood…. No LAPD, No US Navy, no special perks, no entitlement, no great pension and benefits, how do you explain that on an application w/another police force or Costco or a security firm………why bother, start a bloody spree instead.
    He writes a sympathetic sounding ‘manifesto’ (social network beer fueled ego driven diatribe)…..that paves the way to try to excuse his violence, bloody actions, and why he was wronged.. It is pure self absorbed junk, more left leaning than anything else.
    More favorable to Obama & HIllary & gun control laws & Piers Morgan, than say, who was not mentioned….oh yeah, Rush Limbaugh.
    Shall Obama blame Bill Clinton (since he was mentioned in the diatribe) for the attacks, a la Clinton blaming Rush for OKC bombing….w/o any real reason to do so.
    I have no doubt the LAPD has many flaws. It’s a big organization, w/ a need to be PC w/ one group over another – think of it, the female senior officer won, the lower ranked black male officer lost.
    But, the LAPD is also full of black, latino, asian, female, openly gay officers & commanders, it has had two black Chief of Police, and Beck and Bratton are both openly liberal, PC guys…..
    Hey, maybe he was wrong in his case. Just a thought Also, buddy, why not contact the ACLU, PFAW, SPLC, NAACP LEGAL CENTER, etc. – in other words, groups that seek out and love cases that are anti-LAPD. Instead, he chooses a gun, and kills.
    No sympathy is deserved for this man who blames being childless, having a bad relationship w/his mom & sisters, losing his police job, losing his police case, not believing in the Bible, Zimmerman, etc., on racism, unfairness, and getting the shaft.
    What a coward. A complete, self absorbed, coward.

  • el_polacko

    my local news reports only that he’s an ex-cop and ex-military and that he wrote a “frightening” manifesto, leaving the impression that he’s some kind of right-wing nut.

    • RightThinking1

      Uh, except that he specifically admires the whole of leftie media. He states it explicitly : “Chris Matthews, Joe Scarborough, Pat Harvey, Brian Williams, Soledad
      Obrien, Wolf Blitzer, Meredith Viera, Tavis Smiley, and Anderson Cooper,
      keep up the great work..”

  • Sasha Williams

    Any where exactly did they get a copy of it from with these “media omissions”? Can we see scans of some hard copies?

  • Sasha Williams

    What saddens me about how stupid sites like these are reporting it is that instead of focusing on his glaring mental health issues that SOMEONE should have noticed and how little attention and resources are given to treating the potentially violent unstable people in this country; Twitchy and its ilk will only sit here pointing fingers at the Left and shouting ‘nah nah nuh nah nah you’ve got a crazy killer!” instead of actually putting pressure on their Republican leaders to bring mental health treatment up during all these debates about the Affordable Health Care Act.

    • Randi Starr

      What’s sad, is the problem of insanity is apolitical. Thousands of people everyday deny the evidence that a family member have an issue. And thousands more know but are too self absorbed to care because it’s not an immediate threat to them. And thousands who are released because the institution has to have concrete evidence that they are a danger to themselves or someone else and decide under 72 hours. And thousands more who recover on meds to be released and quit taking them. People like you are part of the problem, not part of the solution.

    • nc

      What saddens me, Sasha, is that you missed the point that was clearly stated in Twitchy’s first three words in the headline of this thread, “MSM Covers Up…” How many times must we point out this hypocrisy before you on the left recognize it? Or do you really believe if Dorner was a “right-winger” it wouldn’t have been made a front and center issue?

      • Sasha Williams

        No one is “covering it up”. I’m reading the full report right now and it’s not on a conservative site. Again, enough with the distractions. Focus on the real issue of mental instability going untreated in America

        • TocksNedlog

          “No one is ‘covering it up’.”
          — Yeah, you’re right. These news sites only published half of the manifesto for considerations of time & space, and the omission of Dorner’s leftist views were entirely coincidental.

    • TocksNedlog

      Ya know, that’s kinda funny since post Sandy Hook it’s been Left=”Let’s address guns” and Right=”Let’s address mental health”.

  • el_polacko

    piers morgan just said that it is an “11-page manifesto”….those extra 10 pages simply don’t exist in the media’s reporting.

  • zeekthegeek

    That’s the best thing about anyone who leaves a manifesto. The opinions he has opposite yours show a frightening view into the true nature of the opposition, and the opinions he holds like yours mean oh nothing really that poor unbalanced soul.

    • TocksNedlog

      It’s funny that you say that, since this thread is ABOUT printing THE WHOLE TRUTH.

  • jcdchawk

    He praised Governor Christie, President Bush, General Colin Powell and General David Petraeus so it is not exactly one sided. He is rambling all over the place and commenting on things like Zimmerman where he has no knowledge of what he is talking about. I am not sure why they posted any of it before his killing spread is ended one way or the other. The man is unbalanced it is pretty low of people to try to turn this into a political issue.

    • TocksNedlog

      This ISN’T a political issue. It’s a ‘telling the whole truth, and nothing but’ issue.

    You must’ve missed the part where he stated that his chosen candidate, John Huntsman, did not win the primary or where he he praised Gov. Christie…. He seems more libertarian to me, aside from the AWB. Please get your facts right – It’s almost as bad as mainstream media.

    • amona demona

      John Huntsman WORKED for Obama, IS a liberal and IS an Obama supporter

        Technically, Libertarians believe gay marriage should not be mandated on a federal level and voted according to state rights.

        You must’ve missed all those years in grade school learning proper punctuation and grammar. That makes it a tad difficult for me to take your reply seriously.

    • TocksNedlog

      Okay, so tell us which statement by Twitchy is NOT factual.

      • Amanda

        I apologize, I did not mean to imply that Twitchy’s information is not factual. I merely meant that Twitchy was only offering a portion of Dorner’s beliefs and opinions instead of the whole, i.e. his thoughts on Hunstman, Bush (41), and Christie.

        Regardless of which side Dorner leans toward, it’s obvious the man is mentally disturbed and at the least has some sociopathic tendencies. Personally, I am having a hard time seeing this as a politicized attack – I can only see the criminality behind it.

        • TocksNedlog

          Twitchy did NOT claim that these quotes are representative of the entire manifesto. This post is ABOUT the parts that the MSM selectively edited out, and why they did it.
          And WHERE does Twitchy draw the conclusion that this was “a politicized attack”?

          • Amanda

            I never said Twitchy was behind politicizing this. The commenters are doing that:

            “D.b. Wells • 21 hours ago −
            So many of the mass murders are Democrats because so many of them are insane. That is the common denominator. I don’t know one person who voted for Obama who isn’t mentally unstable”

            This is only one response amongst others politicizing Dorner’s actions. He is retaliating against one of the most liberal and corrupt institutions in one of the most liberal and progressive states – Why would a lib attack another lib?

            There are probably just as many unhinged Republicans as there are Democrats or even Independents. While I question the moral compass of most liberals, I do not think it would be right to deem them insane or mentally decayed purely based on their political stances.

  • Thucydides_of_Athens

    Samizdat, people.

    Print the entire thing and post it in public places where anyone can read it. Use a yellow highlighter to help low information voters see the important parts if you have to.

    Also post the entire thing on every left wing and progressive blog you can access. They will spend an insane amount of time baying at the moon to try and discredit the thing, which will only spread the meme faster. Let them do the work for you.

  • Alyse Freeland

    Did you miss the parts where he mentions his love of Chris Christie, George H W Bush, and KFI? I agree it weird that they omitted that whole section, and also believe they’d have been all over it if his manifesto said he loves Rush Limbaugh rather than Chris Matthews, but you’re not telling the whole story.

    • Jillane Kent

      They are considered conservative? Generally, with the possible exception of the elder Bush, those referenced are not considered sterling examples of the right.

      The 20 page screed was published on his own website that was created to air his grievances. I read it yesterday after it was linked from a local newspaper in the area.

Can you share where you’ve found conclusive evidence from a reputable source?

    Dorner to George H.W. Bush: “You were always one of my favorite Presidents. I hope your health improves greatly.” – as the article on this website states. bush was his 2nd fav pres. – so isnt this discussion quite ridiculous for you to make something of?? cnn is not liberal news. its just news. fox however does promote themselves as conservative voice. dorner liked cnn reporter because he thought they did a good journalistic job. nothing liberal leaning about that.

    • Hal Burton

      FOX News promotes themselves as conservative? Do you have an example of this, or did you pull that out of your ass? Last I checked, FOX puts both sides in any debate, and the rest put up one side of the debate. Guess which side..

      • MaddenRaider916

        FoxNews president Roger Ailes referred to Democrats as “the other side” while being interviewed by Russell Simmons. Here’s an article that discusses it. Not that anyone with a brain needs an “example” of FoxNews being right wing.

        • Hal Burton

          Thats proof of nothing. I’m holding a coin. If I turn it over I’m looking at the “other side”. Which side do I support?

          “Everyone knows” is also not proof. So back to the original statement – Fox News puts up both “sides” in an argument. MSNBC et. al. puts up one side almost exclusively. Easy for even the dimmest libtard to conclude which one is more biased. Just because you libtards “think” FOX news is biased because the libtard echo chamber says so based on the fact that FOX dares to bring in the conservative view doesn’t make it so. Prove it.

    Oops! Twitchy (and Sean Hannity) left out Donners adoration of right-wing darlings:

    ~The honorable President George H.W. Bush, they never give you enough
    credit for your successful Presidency. You were always one of my
    favorite Presidents (2nd favorite). I hope your health improves greatly.
    You are the epitome of an American and service to country.

    ~General Petraeus, you made a mistake that the majority of men make
    once, twice, or unfortunately many times in a lifetime. You are human.
    You thought with your penis. It’s okay.I personally believe you should
    have never resigned and told your critics to shove it. You only answer
    to two people regarding the affair, your wife and children, period. I
    hope you return to government service to your country as it is visibly
    in your DNA.

    ~Tebow, I really wanted to see you take charge of an offense again
    and the game. You are not a good QB by todays standards, but you are a
    great football player who knows how to lead a team and WIN. You will be
    “Tebowing” when you reach your next team. I have faith in you.

    ~Joe Scarborough,

    ~Chick Fil-A

    ~John and Ken from KFI

    If you start looking at the left for what they are (a cult), then it’s easier to understand their mindset. Cult members are generally weak-minded and full of self-doubt, making them easy to manipulate and brainwash (low-info voters). The leaders of cults always control and manipulate their subjects through information control (MSM). This is why the left despises FNC, Breitbart, Twitchy, The DC, The Blaze, Limbaugh or any other medium which undermines their targeted message of control. Liberals and their ideology are both the biggest cult of personality America has ever seen, and the biggest scam ever perpetrated against its’ people.

    As several folks have mentioned, virtually none of these violent killers are conservative or Republican, despite the press constant attempts to find at least one violent Tea Party member. I like at it simply- far leftism is a mental disorder- look at this idiots manifesto- so it doesn’t exactly surprise me when these far left wackos go crazy and shoot somebody.

    Unfortunately, we don’t have a media in this country that will report that fact, sadly, even Fox. Fox could run an entire expose on the subject of how virtually every mass shooter has some kind of leftist leanings but unfortunately, Fox is too busy making sure people like Juan Williams gets his far left airtime.

  • alytron

    You forgot to mention his support ofGeorge Bush, Chris Christie, Colin Powell….

    • hamhawk

      And strangely, the media was not in a hurry to point that out either. I suspect that is because it was a can of worms they did not want to open. This guy, while admiring certain Republicans, was overwhelmingly supportive of Democrats/liberals and their agenda. So they tried to make it non-political (if only this were a constant). Not surprisingly, a few in the media DID sieze upon Dorner’s liking of Bush, while remaining silent about the others he mentioned approvingly. THAT suites the narrative.
