Get full coverage of the manhunt of Chris Dorner at TheBlaze
On Tuesday night's TV show, Glenn focused on the cop-killer who has been on the run in California and the subject of a massive manhunt. Anyone who has turned on a news channel the past few weeks has probably heard of Christopher Dorner, but the media is downplaying one very important piece of the story: his leftist manifesto.
"Why is it no virtually television segment about him ever mentions his manifesto?" Glenn asked.
In his manifesto, Dorner rails against the NRA and the police, praises Piers Morgan, and claims he wants Hillary Clinton to become President in 2016. Even more shocking has been the support that Dorner and his ideas have gotten on social networks like Facebook where people are claiming "We are all Chris Dorner".
Glenn reminded viewers that just a few years ago the media was quick to blame Sarah Palin and the Tea Party when Jared Loughner shot and nearly killed Gabby Giffords. They had no evidence to link Loughner with Palin or conservatives, but liberal pundits put it out there anyway. But with Dorner and his clear progressive leanings the media has shown incredible restraint in not assigning blame to one political ideology.
Glenn pointed out that this wasn't the only story where the media was ignoring the liberal leanings of a violent offender. Last week, a man attempted to blow up a Bank of America building with a car bomb but was foiled by the FBI. It turned out he's a recent convert to Islam who was working with the Taliban. The man had hoped the bombing would be blamed on the Tea Party and he would spark a Civil War after a severe government crackdown.
Glenn said the only way to curtail blame on conservatives and the Tea Party for violence is for people to educate themselves on all of the facts in these stories and share them with their friends.
Below are some excerpts from Dorner's manifesto (get more details at TheBlaze):
On former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton:
Hillary Clinton. You’ll make one hell of a president in 2016. Much like your husband, Bill, you will be one of the greatest. Look at Castro in San Antonio as a running mate or possible secretary of state. He’s (good people) and I have faith and confidence in him. Look after Bill. He was always my favorite President. Chelsea grew up to be one hell of an attractive woman. No disrespect to her husband.
On CNN’s Fareed Zakaria and Piers Morgan:
Revoke the citizenship of Fareed Zakaria and deport him. I’ve never heard a positive word about America or its interest from his mouth, ever. On the same day, give Piers Morgan an indefinite resident alien and Visa card. Mr. Morgan, the problem that many American gun owners have with you and your continuous discussion of gun control is that you are not an American citizen and have an accent that is distinct and clarifies that you are a foreigner. I want you to know that I agree with you 100% on enacting stricter firearm laws but you must understand that your critics will always have in the back of their mind that you are native to a country that we won our sovereignty from while using firearms as a last resort in defense and you come from a country that has no legal private ownership of firearms. That is disheartening to American gun owners and rightfully so.
On President Obama:
You disrespect the office of the POTUS/Presidency and Commander in Chief. You call him Kenyan, mongroid, halfrican, muslim, and FBHO when in essence you are to address him as simply, President. The same as you did to President George W. Bush and all those in the highest ranking position of our land before him. Just as I always have. You question his birth certificate, his educational and professional accomplishments, and his judeo-christian beliefs. You make disparaging remarks about his dead parents. You never questioned the fact that his former opponent, the honorable Senator John McCain, was not born in the CONUS or that Bush had a C average in his undergrad. Electoral Candidates children (Romney) state they want to punch the president in the face during debates with no formal repercussions. No one even questioned the fact that the son just made a criminal threat toward the President. You call his wife a Wookie. Off the record, I love your new bangs, Mrs. Obama.
