Paydirt: Media find connection between alleged cop-killer Chris Dorner and George (H.W.) Bush

The mainstream media haven’t been able to connect alleged cop-killer Christopher Dorner to the Tea Party yet, but they’re getting closer. As Twitchy has reported, several media outlets have buried portions of Dorner’s manifesto that reveal his far-Left leanings and adoration of CNN and MSNBC. Those details certainly don’t fit the standard “blame the Tea Party” narrative, but reporters have found one tidbit they can use, and it might let them blame (a) Bush.

Yeah, remember that. Dorner wrote, “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.” Gawker was among the media outlets that highlighted the Bush connection, which Reuters’ Matthew Keys mistakenly tweeted as George W. Bush before correcting himself and deleting the original tweet.


Heck, Dorner even praised Michelle Obama’s bangs (and lamented the thought that he wouldn’t live to see “The Hangover 3”). But … Bush!

So, what’s a journalist to do?

  • Tangchung

    Crank up the Bush’s fault machine.

  • Robert Gallinari

    Piers Morgan; what a waste; just another socialist totally ignorant of the American spirit. We’ve had a running history of the like of him. It’s the blind followers and believers of his nonsense that are the true menace. God Bless America!

    • Garth Haycock

      Yep. Pierce hasn’t figured out that if this was the late 18th Century, he would be of the class against which the Colonists revolted.

  • detroit19

    Wow…that didn’t take long to place the blame on ‘Bush’. Sounds like in his later years/manifesto, the ‘cop-killer’ (refuse to type his name) has ‘evolved’ to adoration of Obama and Biden. Call me crazy, but he sounds crazy, end of story.

  • Rafael Eduardo Peña-Rios Riber

    if you cant blame W then blame his dad

  • NachoCheese (D)

    but but but Boooooooooosh!

  • Matthew Koch

    Wait a sec, I thought we were blaming this on Limbaugh?

    • 83champ

      But it’s a black guy…not unlike Mr. Snerdley.

  • Ntr

    Of course they find a connection. It’s desperation and none of it is working. It’s like the old expression, “Throw ish at the wall and see what sticks.” Only nothing they’re throwing is sticking and it’s hilarious. We could very well be seeing the downfall of the liberal media by their own doing. We all need to keep pushing them into the corner.

  • HARP2

    Wait a minute. I thought he looked like obama`s son ?

    • marvgoux1

      He’s a big MSNBC fan and Obama voter.

  • michael s

    Looks like he’s bipartisan not a lefty or a righty . To me he’s a terrorist which is the appropriate term

    • John (it true me am)

      Ok. He put forward a love for million hardcore leftists and then mentioned a whole 2 liberal republicans… I guess that is the left’s definition of bipartisan.

  • daeghrefn

    Come on. When this is all over, it will be because the guy was pushed over the edge by all the hateful anti-Obama rhetoric and attacks on Piers Morgan. We know the drill.

    • Pablo

      He’s punching back twice as hard.

      • daeghrefn

        Who is?

  • Krazy Kent

    And the mainstream media, after EVERYTHING else they’ve done this past year….trashed George Zimmerman, trashed the GOP, trashed Romney, connected other crazed killers to the Tea Party with virtually no proof………

    Actually lowered the bar EVEN further….and I thought there was no room left down there. Pathetic.

    • Sasha Williams

      George Zimmerman is as guilty as sin. He started a fight with a high schooler and then shot the kid in cold blood when the kid tried to defend himself.

      • Krazy Kent

        Gee, I’m sorry…I didn’t realize you had actually witnessed what happened and could speak on it with such confidence. We were told there were no witnesses. My bad. Perhaps you should come forward and testify.

        • Sasha Williams

          Did you not listen to the police call? The dispatcher told Zimmerman “DO NOT FOLLOW HIM, WE DON’T NEED YOU TO DO THAT SIR” to which Zimmerman replied “THESE COONS ALWAYS GET AWAY, HE WON’T GET AWAY”. Zimmerman=aggressor, Martin=victim.

          • Krazy Kent

            Yep….I sure did. The ENTIRE call, from start to finish. Not the edited NBC call you obviously listened to. Pull your head outta the MSM’s ass for once, and search for the truth. You’ll be surprised at what you might discover. It’s common knowledge amongst those with a nickels worth of brain matter that the original call was edited by NBC.

          • Sasha Williams

            No, you listened to some clipped together Fox Clip. Because no sane person can listen to this and not conclude that Zimmerman was the aggressor and created a dangerous situation he then shot his way out of.

          • Noah Lee

            sure that’s exactly what he said. /s

      • Noah Lee

        really was there cuts and bruises on trayvon’s face? if there weren’t then trayvon wasn’t defending himself. so shut the fuck up!!

  • ranchdancer

    30 inches of snow heading here…damn that Bush…all of them I say, all of them!

    • Jim Denney

      Call Prez Bomber Jacket … he and Krispy Christie will be there immediately with FEMA relief for all.

    • Ken Alan Draper

      No, that’s Obama’s jobs program. they are going to have everybody employed shoveling snow.

  • Barack Hussein Sharpton

    Dorner should properly be labeled “The MSNBC/CNN Killer”.

  • nc

    This must have been the broken-clock entry in the manifesto.

  • Brett McMicken

    if i recall correctly, the unabomber had a copy of al gore’s book in his home, too.

  • Okie_pastor

    He is all over the place, he likes Christie, H W Bush, MSNBC, and Obama but as I read the manifesto what I thought was odd, (well not for liberals) is he said why does someone need an AR15? I immediately thought “uhh to protect ourselves from maniacs like you!”

  • Maxx

    Libs and Progs will be working overtime for the next few days to spin this narrative away from their agenda-driven reporting that gun violence with rifles is a “righty” problem. Wait for it….it’s coming.

  • BeyondPolls

    He also praised Ellen DeGeneres; therefore all homosexuals must be violent!!!111!!!11!!!!!!!!

  • Timothy Wright Art

    Oh give it up. The man mentions everyone from Ellen to Dubya Bush to Charlie Sheen to Hillary Clinton. He is INSANE. Granted that makes him closer to Teabaggers in the sanity scale but it seems he is an independent crazy person.

    • Noah Lee

      youre a schmuck

  • Ken Alan Draper

    Of course the fact that H.W. Bush was a liberal-republican who was widely seen as wishy-washy never gets mentioned.

  • Sahand Hokmabadi

    He also liked many liberal people he said, he was a moderate in my opinion of reading the manifesto. Why are we even talking about his political affiliation when we should be talking about the horrible things he says has been going on in the LAPD even providing names. And one of the people on video beating rodney king with a baton is now incharge of 200 officers? That’s crazy. This guy snapped and is doing some horrible stuff, but it seems he’s telling the truth.

  • Guest

    I’m a democrat and this is exactly why guns should not be banned. The police opened fire on two people in a van that happened to look like droners, who were working delivering newspapers. Now we have a cop going nuts and killing people becuase of the corruption in the LAPD and getting fired because he tried to expose it? The police in general can not be trusted AT TIMES to protect you.

  • Sahand Hokmabadi

    I’m a democrat and this is exactly why guns should not be banned. The police opened fire on two people in a van that happened to look like dorners, who were working delivering newspapers. Then they shot up another vehicle like an hour later thankfully the guy inside wasn’t hurt. Whave a cop going nuts and killing people becuase of the corruption in the LAPD and getting fired because he tried to expose it? The police in general can not be trusted AT TIMES to protect you.

    Time to blame whitey for the world’s problems.
