Conservative Gunman Committed Terrorism Against Liberals

In his statement to the court upon sentencing, the Knoxville Tennessee shooter who killed 2 and wounded 4 people in a Unitarian Church reveals why he did it - to kill those Damn Dirty Liberals. (Full PDF)

"Know this if nothing else: This was a hate crime. I hate the damn left-wing liberals. There is a vast left-wing conspiracy in this country & these liberals are working together to attack every decent & honorable institution in the nation, trying to turn this country into a communist state. Shame on them....

Echoing Palin and Joe the-Unlicenced-Not-A-War-Correspondant Plumber and their hateful "Socialist" talk, this man truly believed that he was the first footsoldier in a war to take America back from The Hated Left.

And guess who wrote his hit-list for him?

Local News Coverage of Sentencing for James Adkisson:

More from "the Manifesto"
"This was a symbolic killing. Who I wanted to kill was every Democrat in the Senate & House, the 100 people in Bernard Goldberg's book. I'd like to kill everyone in the mainstream media. But I know those people were inaccessible to me. I couldn't get to the generals & high ranking officers of the Marxist movement so I went after the foot soldiers, the chickenshit liberals that vote in these traitorous people. Someone had to get the ball rolling. I volunteered. I hope others do the same. It's the only way we can rid America of this cancerous pestilence."

"I thought I'd do something good for this Country Kill Democrats til the cops kill me....Liberals are a pest like termites. Millions of them Each little bite contributes to the downfall of this great nation. The only way we can rid ourselves of this evil is to kill them in the streets. Kill them where they gather. I'd like to encourage other like minded people to do what I've done. If life aint worth living anymore don't just kill yourself. do something for your Country before you go. Go Kill Liberals.

Here we have O'Reilly and Bernard Golberg threatening to assult Media Matters - for merely documenting things they really did say!

O'Reilly: "I want to send them a cake, but I want something to be inside the cake, and I might be put in prison if that happens."

Here's Goldberg again, suggesting that O'Reilly should go down the the New York Times with a Baseball bat.

Bernard Goldberg: If NY Times attacked me like it attacks O'Reilly, "I probably would have gotten a baseball bat and gone down to the New York Times with it and found the person that wrote the editorial, but that's me."

Yeah, well it's not like someone like O'Reailly might ever really fly completely off the handle. Well, almost:

Besides O'Reilly and Goldberg you also have Ann Coulter who'se suggested in the past torture should be a televised sport, that All Arabs should have bombs dropped on them, and Liberals should be sent to Gitmo.

Which brings me to this week's scandal about No Such Agency [NSA] spying on "Americans." I have difficulty ginning up much interest in this story inasmuch as I think the government should be spying on all Arabs, engaging in torture as a televised spectator sport, dropping daisy cutters wantonly throughout the Middle East and sending liberals to Guantanamo.

And people wonder why I'm not a big fan of most conservatives.

Frankly, if you've ever watched Fear Factor or Saw - you know that torture already is a national spectator sport.

Throwing out violent threats against Liberals and/or anyone that confronts , threatens or challenges thems is a regular right-wing strategy.

It may be rather easy for fairly rational people to blow-off these types of comments and suggestions of violence against Liberals. There is of course, the Free Speech defense - but I do recall almost 20 years ago when the right-wing certainly didn't much care for the "Free Speech" view.

They completly ignored that idea when the band Body Count led by Ice-T dared to release the song "Cop Killer" (which is actually a statement Against Police Brutality and warning that the Rage in L.A. was rising to the boiling point and the Rodney King Riots), Republicans and members of the Fraternal Order of Police phoned in Death and Bomb Threats against their Record Label forcing them to pull the song from the album with threats of violence.

The criticism escalated to the point where death threats were sent to Warner Bros. Records executives, and stockholders threatened to pull out of the company. According to his own words in his book The Ice Opinion: Who Gives a Fuck? (1994) Ice T decided to remove the song from the album of his own volition. Eventually, the album was re-issued with "Cop Killer" removed. Ice T left the label in 1993, following disputes over the album Home Invasion. The performer stated of the controversy that "When I started out, [Warner] never censored us. Everything we did, we have full control over. But what happened was when the cops moved on Body Count they issued pressure on the corporate division of Warner Bros., and that made the music division, they couldn't out-fight 'em in the battle, so even when you're in a business with somebody who might not wanna censor you, economically people can put restraints on 'em and cause 'em to be afraid. I learned that lesson in there, that you're never really safe as long as you're connected to any big corporation's money."

Ice T Interview from Australian TV exlains what his song was really all about, and you can tell how the interviewer isn't trying to hear him.

Arguably Ice T wasn't speaking literally. He was telling a story - "It's a song from Madman", just like Bob Marley's "I Shot the Sherrif", it's Self-Defense. It was a fantasy - much like Goldberg and the baseball bat. Neither of them is really planning on carrying these actions out, anymore than Dirty Harry or the Terminator are likely to going around shooting people. Ice T has even performed several acting roles as a (non-brutal) police officer himself in films such as New Jack City and NBC's Law and Order. Clearly he knows the difference.

Time and time again prosecutors have refrained from prosecuting musicians (and film-makers) for suggestions of violence, even when people have actually carried out the actions described in their songs and films. (Although they did try to prosecute Ozzy Osborne for "Suicide Solution" and Judas Priest after some young men committed suicide - those cases all failed!) They generally realize, rightly I believe, that such an argument tends to reduce some responsibility, and guilt for the perpatrators themselves. It's allows a killer to use someone else as their scapegoat.

We shouldn't blame Catcher in the Rye for the shooting of Lennon, or the Beatles themselves for the Tate/LaBianca killings.

Common sense needs to apply here.

But what should happen when the perpatrator specifically names the person who inspired his actions, the reason for his targeting of a specific type of individual and both they and their inspirational figure further attempts to incite others to follow in the footsteps of violence against those targets?

We aren't talking about the right of self-defense with James Adkisson, he wasn't being attacked! His actions weren't justified in any manner. But he also admits he was specifically incited to commit Murder for ideological reasons, just like Eric Robert Rudolph who was inspired to Bomb the Atlanta Olympics and Women's Health Clinics by virilent anti-Abortion rhetoric, and Timothy McVeigh was inspired by The Turner Diaries after Waco, the Weapons-Strength Anthrax sent to Pat Leahy and Tom Dashcle or the Fake Anthrax that was sent to Keith Olbermann and Jon Stewart. These action are not completely random. They are intended to intimidate.

At a certain point violent rhetoric crosses the line and is not Art, it's not Humor, it's not Satire, and it's not free speech when it becomes a direct and deliberate incitement to VIOLENCE - At a certain point, It's Terrorism.

Plain and simple.


Do you Waste (Waste)
All the time that you have
Do you Take (Take)
Everything you can get
Do you Fake (Fake)
Every feeling you show
Do you Hate (Hate)
Everyone that you know

(Chorus 1)
I can't change you
Unless you change yourself
I can't make you
Into someone you don't wannabe?
Who do you Wannabe?

Will you Fight (Fight)
For what you believe in?
Do you Share (Share)
Everything you don't need?
Do you Make (Make)
All the luck that you get?
Do you Love (Love)
Even those that don't love you?

From the song "Wannabe?" - by ME!

Don't tell me about Eric Rudolph. At least he stopped the babykilling abortionist from murdering any more children. What have you done to stopped these babies from being murdered?
How many straight children have been molested and murdered by homosexuals like you? A lot. How many Christians have been assaulted by homosexuals like you because you didn't like the way they voted? A lot. How many Christian churches have been burned down by homosexuals like you because you disagree with the Holy Bible? A lot. Matthew Shepard is in eternal hell fire now and will never get out.
Whatever you think, you will not be able to change God's Word and will one day have to pay the price for not believing what God has written.
Leviticus 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

Leviticus 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

Romans 1:22-27

V22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, V23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

V24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

V25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, Who is blessed for ever. Amen.

V26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

V27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

SAY THIS PRAYER: Dear Jesus, I am a sinner and am headed to eternal hell because of my sins. I believe you died on the cross to take away my sins and to take me to heaven. Jesus, I ask you now to come into my heart and take away my sins and give me eternal life.

"Reverend" and I use the term rather loosely since Jesus said "Let he who is without sin, cast the first stone" -- Eric Rudolph is a TERRORIST!

Letivitus also said that a child who talked back to their parents was "an abomination." And ...

Leviticus 20:10 - "If a man commits adultery with the wife of his neighbor, both the adulterer and the adulteress shall be put to death.

Leviticus 11:42 - Whatever goes on its belly, and whatever goes on all fours, or whatever has many feet, all the swarming things that swarm upon the earth, you shall not eat; for they are an abomination.

Leviticus 7:21 - And if any one touches an unclean thing, whether the uncleanness of man or an unclean beast or any unclean abomination, and then eats of the flesh of the sacrifice of the LORD's peace offerings, that person shall be cut off from his people."

Leviticus 12:2 - Say to the people of Israel, If a woman conceives, and bears a male child, then she shall be unclean seven days; as at the time of her menstruation, she shall be unclean. 5 - But if she bears a female child, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as in her menstruation; and she shall continue in the blood of her purifying for sixty-six days.

Leviticus 18:29 - For whoever shall do any of these abominations, the persons that do them shall be cut off from among their people.

Jesus said that a woman who husband has died, who re-marries - is an "adulterer"! So how many of these people - widows - should be murdered and put to death?

Rudolph didn't save anyone, he killed people. He used the same logic as the Taliban who threw acid into the faces of schoolgirls. He used the same logic as suicide bombers, only suicide bombers at least have the full conviction of thier belief to GO UP with their bombs.

Sir, to paraphrase Charlie Chaplin when he was accused of being a Jew - "I do not have the honor of being Gay", considering the level of violent and mindless vitriol that those people have faced, and the courage by which they have faced it.

I've looked up the FBI Uniform Hate Crime Stats many times, and the whining Christo-Facist preachers are rarely the victim of Mad-Gay violence - they are the perpetrators.
