Ex-LAPD cop and alleged murderer Christopher Dorner has generated something of a supportive following on social media, where thousands have voiced support for his cause and the sentiments in his 14-page manifesto. One Facebook page, “I support Christopher Jordan Dorner,” received more than 6,400 “likes” — or votes of support from individual community members — in four days. “You want to know why people are rallying around this guy even though he has done some nasty things?” the page reads. “It’s because there are so many cases of police mistreatment. Of people who have had brothers, sisters, mothers,
Comments: I am really concerned about the sickness of our society. It is no longer something you can ignore as them behaving like silly loons. These people are very disturbed.
This is fascinating on many levels. The whole thing made me curious about his ´manifesto´, so I looked it up. It is an interesting diatribe, in which he chastises not only whites for being racist, but blacks as well.
Those Black officers in supervisory ranks and pay grades who stay in south bureau (even though you live in the valley or OC) for the sole intent of getting retribution toward subordinate caucasians officers for the pain and hostile work environment their elders inflicted on you as probationers (P-1´s) and novice P-2’s. You are a high value target. You perpetuated the cycle of racism in the department as well. You breed a new generation of bigoted caucasian officer when you belittle them and treat them unfairly.
In some sense, Dorner´s message takes on the same tone of righteousness as the Hollywood story of a wronged avenger making a last, desperate stand after exhausting all other avenues.
His manifesto focuses on the LAPD, and his grievance is solely directed against that organization. It is not a leftist diatribe against the ills of the world.
He may be a bitter, paranoid wacko who has imagined an elaborate conspiracy against him. But, what if he is not?
No it´s racist black on black and the offers of help are probably from more black racists. He is correct though in his rant against the black population for always thinking revenge for their ancestors while not accepting they are now the focus of criminal acts against others. It was whites who freed the American slaves not fellow blacks and lost in the anger is the fact a large number of whites were also shipped into the colonies as virtual slaves although most the slave labor only lasted 7 years . many were young teens who by no act of their own were thrown with the entire family into debtor prisons then shipped out as bound servants to work off the debt plus the cost of their unwilling passage. Check he plight of the Scotts clans in those years too . Black slaves were sold into bondage by other blacks or muslims who didn´t put a price limit on the act. If we still studied history we would learn that British ships carried those slaves while this nation was still a colony. The business was a three way deal.
Amazing that suppossedly adult individuals would support the actions of this cold blooded killer because of supposed, imagined or whatever reason. Murder is murder... I these people vote too...I can also imagine who they voted for. Sow what you reap...
You have leftists saying kids of illegals shouldn´t be punished for the sins of their parents but every white person today should be punished for the sins of their ancestors.This whole thing about slavery retribution has been very poisonous to the culture and has stopped a lot of black people from getting ahead as they sit around year after year waiting for reparations.
If he killed the couple, then he´s a sick monster (even if he was a good man b4 who was wronged & cracked -pthere´s no excuse for killing innocent people). But, from what I read & my knowledge of police corruption, there´s still a tiny seed of doubt. What IF he´s being framed? Not saying he was, but what if? I don´t like his politics, but it doesn´t mean that he hadn´t been a good man b4. As another said, he wouldn´t have been in the Naval Reserve as long as he was & had as many good reviews b4 if he was always nuts. Did he lose it? ...maybe. Did he kill the couple? Dunno...what´s the evidence? All I know is LAPD is one of the most corrupt organizations (like many big city PDs). Why´s LAPD still lying about the 2 women? Who´s this white guy now? I knew a gal who was constantly framed & harassed cuz she witnessed a cop murder a man (ran over him several times) . No one is condoning the murders. People just relate to the plight of the underdog. It doesn´t make them sick or racist--just human.
PJ Media columnist J. Christian Adams appeared on The Kelly File on Fox News on Friday to talk about his recent article detailing how the Department of Homeland Security has recently hired activist immigration attorneys who worked for pro-amnesty, pro-asylum, and open borders groups in the past. Now, sources inside DHS have provided PJ Media with the employment history and pro-amnesty backgrounds of the newly hired lawyers who will be enforcing federal immigration laws. The ideological histories of these new DHS lawyers undermine confidence that the federal government will vigorously enforce federal laws, notwithstanding any congressional “mandates” to do so.
WASHINGTON -- A longtime adviser to the U.S. Director of National Intelligence has resigned after the government learned he has worked since 2010 as a paid consultant for Huawei Technologies Ltd., the Chinese technology company the U.S. has condemned as an espionage threat, The Associated Press has learned. Theodore H. Moran, a respected expert on China´s international investment and professor at Georgetown University, had served since 2007 as adviser to the intelligence director´s advisory panel on foreign investment in the United States. Moran also was an adviser to the National Intelligence Council,
DEVELOPING: – An elderly U.S. tourist and war veteran detained for more than a month for alleged hostile acts against North Korea has been deported from that country. North Korean state media said Saturday 85-year-old Merrill Newman was released because he had apologized for his alleged crimes during the Korean War and because of his age and medical condition. It was not clear if his confession was coerced. He was taken off a plane Oct. 26 by North Korean authorities while preparing to leave the country after a 10-day tour. Vice President Joe Biden is currently in South Korea on
At the "Fast Food Forward" protest on Thursday, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) demanded that Pres. Obama sign an executive order bypassing Congress and unilaterally raising the federal minimum wage. Rep. Ellison told the crowd that they should join him in demanding that Pres. Obama skip seeking Congressional approval and raise the minimum wage on his own - and that he sent the president a letter on Wednesday presenting his demand: "We in Congress will try to raise the minimum wage. We got opponents on the other side of the aisle who say that there shouldn´t be no minimum wage. So, we
Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan joined WSJ Live host Mary Kissel on Friday where they discussed the ongoing issues associated with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. Noonan said she found the way in which this administration has handled this crisis has been among the “oddest” she’s seen. Noonan added that she would like to see “humility” from President Barack Obama rather than combativeness. Kissel began by asking about the “puzzle” of the president’s response to the crisis surrounding the ACA’s faltering website. “I look at the White House the past two months, I think the president and
Another leftist lets the mask slip. Jonathan Alter believes that violent criminals imprisoned for their crimes are political prisoners. He and Al Sharpton talked to themselves on MSNBC today. Sharpton asked Alter what America might learn from the example of Nelson Mandela. Reasonable answers to this question include but are not limited to: Don’t abuse political power to punish your enemies; don’t hold on to political power forever; choose your wife or husband a bit more carefully; don’t seek to divide when unity serves the nation better. Alter wants America to learn a different lesson. None of the above. Alter
As Congress gets ready to battle on immigration reform next year, it´s important to take a look at who will help enforce and shape any kind of immigration overhaul. Former Department of Justice Assistant Attorney General and radical open borders attorney Tom Perez was safely put into the position of Labor Secretary by President Obama and the Senate earlier this year, knowing the Department of Justice is safely locked down as pro-amnesty. Perez has a long history of advocating not for American workers, but for illegal alien workers and made sure the Department of Justice was stacked with pro-amnesty attorneys
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
