Class Warfare Results in Death

Posted: December 16, 2010 in florida, video

The gunman who opened fire at a Florida school board on Tuesday has been identified as Clay Duke. His Facebook page and all traces of his online activity were quickly purged from the internet.

However, viewed before it was removed, his Facebook profile yielded insight into his worldview and the better understanding of his possible motives.On Facebook, Duke called government an evil monster.

His Bio read in part:
I was just born poor in a country where the Wealthy manipulate, use, abuse, and economically enslave 95% of the population. Rich Republicans, Rich Democrats… same-same… rich… they take turns fleecing us… our few dollars… pyramiding the wealth for themselves. The 95%… the us, in US of A, are the neo slaves of the Global South. Our Masters, the Wealthy, do, as they like to us…Duke labeled himself a “Freedom Fighter.
Under religious views, he wrote, “Humanism.
Some of his favorite websites he listed included:
http://www.theprogressivemind.info/
http://mediamatters.org/
http://www.wearechange.org/
http://www.stoplying.ca/
http://crimesofthestate.com

As Clay Duke spray painted the “V” for vendetta symbol on the wall of the auditorium a few minutes before his death, the same symbol used on his Facebook page, we were reminded how horrible and destructive a force is anarchy.Judging from his online activity, Mr. Duke embraced a decidedly anti-government philosophy from a leftist perspective, and targeted the school board because they had called for lower taxes, which he linked to his wife’s loss of a job.

So, once again, hate and class warfare led to violence.

I disagree with Kelly. The training the flight crew had was for “description of the suspect”. First, you are not supposed to leave your seat when the plane is taxiing, second I’m 6’5″ and 275lbs and have never damaged anything in a commuter jet, so how the the suspect damage the toilet and why didn’t he immediately report it the the flight crew? It might have been a test, it might have been staged either as a dry run or to give basis for a lawsuit, or it might have been innocent. Tell me why is shouldn’t be investigated. If you were on the plane, what would you think. CAIR can go suck an egg until they start condemning radical clerics, something you don’t hear them do.
