John Hayward: The Very Inconvenient Chris Dorner – Update: John Nolte Holds the Media Accountable

John Hayward (otherwise known as, Doctor Zero) published an outstanding piece over at Human Events today, after news broke about the ex-LAPD officer accused of killing three people and currently still on the run from authorities. He wrote:

I’m going to begin with a firm statement that law-abiding people are not accountable for the actions of deranged lunatics who happen to listen to them, or praise their work.  To believe otherwise is to render free speech problematic, for who knows what strong words might be seized upon by a maniac?

But the Left very much does believe in holding decent people accountable for the actions of madmen… even if the madmen in question didn’t actually listen to what the decent people said.  If you need a reminder of what I’m talking about, click here.  I remain, to this day, astonished that any respectable publication would print a single word written by Paul Krugman.

The link under "click here" is to another article Hayward had written in response to Paul Krugman’s post blaming Governor Palin for the tragedy in Tucson.

He goes on:

Now we’ve got lunatic cop killer Chris Dorner, with three murders in Los Angeles under his belt, including one police officer, plus a female college basketball coach and her fiance.  Two other cops were ambushed by Dorner in their patrol car; one of them is seriously wounded.  Nervous police officers accidentally fired on at least three civilians in the wake of these attacks.

At the time of this writing, the killer is still at large, heavily armed, and incredibly dangerous.  Dorner used to be an employee of the LAPD, but he was fired in 2009 for making false statements.  The father of the basketball coach he murdered was his lawyer.  ”I never had the opportunity to have a family of my own, so I am terminating yours,” Dorner said on his Facebook page.  He said that he wanted to kill cops, and was not afraid to die himself.

Dorner is also very interested in politics… and according to blogger Sooper Mexican, who says he has been following the story very closely, the media is actively suppressing Dorner’s political leanings, including heavy redaction of his crazed manifesto.  About half of the manifesto has been delicately excised from press reports… the parts where he praises gun control, Senator Dianne Feinstein, MSNBC, CNN (especially gun control sensationalist Piers Morgan), Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama.  On the other hand, he really hates the NRA, particularly Wayne LaPierre (who he incorrectly identifies as the organization’s “president” – that would be David Keene at the moment) and George Zimmerman.


He’s got a long list of thumbs-up and thumbs-downs.  As anyone who tried to wade through the manifesto of Norwegian monster Anders Breivik can attest, violently insane people can be very wordy, as they tend to regard all of their opinions as highly significant.  Follow the above link to Sooper Mexican’s place if you want to read the whole twisted thing (minus the parts the police very reasonably asked to redact, in the interests of public safety and law enforcement.)  Warning: there is some profanity in Dorner’s writings.

Nobody Dorner says he likes or agrees with is in any way responsible for his actions.  But quite a few of them have long, shameful histories of unjustly blaming their political opponents for the actions of other maniacs.

Yes they do.

Update: Over at Breitbart, John Nolte is holding the media accountable on this. He’s posted several articles today including:

CNN Stars Admired by L.A. Murder Suspect Falsely Linked Palin to Tucson Killings

NBC Stars Admired By Alleged L.A. Killer Falsely Linked Palin to Tucson Killings


Piers Morgan: L.A. Murder Spree Has ‘Nothing To Do With Politics’

If you will recall, back in November of 2011, Piers Morgan feigned outage that Governor Palin hadn’t ‘apologized’ to Gabby Giffords for being a victim of a shooting the Governor had nothing to do with.

So how about it, Piers? Are you going to call the families of Chris Dorner’s victims to offer an apology? Or are you going to call Governor Palin and rightly apologize to her for insinuating (with a sympathetic guest no less) to your audience that Governor Palin had anything to do with the actions of that madman in Tucson?

  • mark1955  You alrady posted ths link but it bares reposting and repeating. This ex-cop, cop murderer Chris Dorner, is a rabid Obama supporter and anti God Given Second Ammendment supporter. The above link shows how the lamestream media has censored those fact’s out of Dorner’s rambling manifesto…Well how convenient. Everyone Post this link at any sites you frequent  so word get’s out.

      Rabid Obama Supporter? Really? You ought to be ashamed of yourself. You know good and well that this idiot wrote in the manifesto the he didn’t vote for Obama…he supported John Hunstman and his favorite President is George H W Bush. He also is a big fan of Chris Christie and thinks Gen Petraus is a great American and Dennis Miller is a genius.  Why are you trying to mislead people?

    SPLC to get Sarah Palin treatment any day nowFebruary 7, 2013 By mollie

  • indemind

    Thanks Stacy…. Excellent Post….

    SarahAmerica – "Our freedoms are being compromised, our common sense insulted, and our children exploited. We must be vigilant and engaged, and we must remain hopeful that a better day is coming."

  • conservativemama

    I’m still mulling this in my head, lots of thoughts coming together, but I can’t help feeling that Sarah Palin really, really, more than we know, knew what she was doing when she stayed out of the 2012 race.  And she’s been brilliant in staying out of the fray.

    It’s as if she knew, or at the least, hoped and prayed and believed, that those who spun webs and webs of lies about her from the day McCain introduced her as his running mate, would be undone by their own deeds and words.  Karma would work and they would pay a price for their lies.  She knew that living in lies cannot go on forever and the truth, however long it would take, would come out.

    Look at how her name is coming back in the wake of the current stories about this killer and Karl Rove.  Look at how she’s still being defended by so many of us.  Look at how people never forgot what was done to her and are holding others to account.

    I even believe that Katie Couric and Charles Gibson and so many others may have done the country a favor.  It could be that a win in 2008 would not have been best for Palin.  She would have been tied to a RINO.  Perhaps the country had to endure the Obama horror to truly know good when it returned.  Reagan after Carter.

    Something’s happening people.   I can only hope and believe that up in Wasilla, a very wise woman knows exactly what she’s doing.

    It’s breathtaking.

    My thoughts on this day.

    • jester2939

      Excellently stated! Your thoughts mirror some of mine – the Gov. would have had little power as VP and would have to support McCain and his positions like a good soldier, tarnishing her reputation as a Reagan conservative in the process. And the
      American people weren’t ready for reform in 2012.

      Sarah reminds me of Churchill in that he was able to see ahead. He said that Hitler was a problem that had to be dealt with and defeated. The British people didn’t want to hear that – the truth can be rather unpleasant. But after Hitler started steamrolling parts of Europe under Chamberlain, the British people knew who to turn to. They went to Churchill – the man with vision, a plan and the fortitude to carry it out.

      Sarah also has the ability to look ahead and see what’s coming. Her Death Panels comment created a stir, but in recent days she is proven right – again. Also, her prediction that Obamacare and gun control would be tied together also came true.Since the media made such a big deal about the Death Panels comment, most Americans know who said it and saw it coming. Hopefully, Americans will turn to her for leadership when they finally realize what Obamacare entails.

      I pray that more of these slanderous stories about Sarah will backfire so the American people will see that Sarah is the leader this country needs.

        All good points.  I believe that the media and Hollywood, thinking they were so smart in destroying Palin, only made her stronger.  They don’t know it, and may never connect those dots, but if Palin, GOD WILLING, is elected president one day, everything that happened would have helped put her in the White House.  Her supporters and haters all play a role.

        They should have left her alone, but their hatred was all consuming.  Regardless, Palin was never going to be anonymous again.  She’s a force that they cannot destroy or manufacture or replicate.

      • lyndaaquarius

        never underestimate Sarah Palin. Like Churchill, she’s got vision and tons of fortitude. Yes. it would have been awful for Governor Palin to support and defend Mccain’s Rino policies. But,as it turned out she didn’t have to. Everything works out so  beautifully for Sarah Palin. Romney Rove etc snub her at the convention and they, unwillingly are protecting her. Her innate goodness and pure intentions will always protect her.A very profound woman.

    • lyndaaquarius

      you’re completely correct in your assessments. She’s a very shrewd and patient woman.In retrospect, isn’t it fortuitous that she had nothing to do with the the RNC convention? It’s all playing out as it should. She never makes a misstep,does she?After 4 more awful years of Obama and Obamacare, people will be exhausted from all the dissension and decline and anxiety and will be wondering"now what was so stupid about that governor from Alaska who brought so much success to her state?" The bloom will surely be off the Obama rose by then.
      As for Hillary Clinton…one question how SPECIFICALLY did her tenure as NY senator and Sec. of State benefit the lives of the middle classes? "She’s such a brilliant,strong woman" just doesn"t cut it anymore. My mother,a passionate life long Democrat voted for Reagan. She explained "Things keep getting worse and worse under Carter"

      • conservativemama

        I love your questions about Hillary.  And I would add Arkansas.  As first lady did she accomplish anything, leave any mark?  It’s not as if she ever looked back after leaving Little Rock.

    Here’s the actual Media Manifesto of this murderer. Byron York just Tweeted it out…

    Rush Limbaugh should read the entire manifesto on air today.

    I don’t care what wrongs you felt were unjustly leveled upon you: that is NO REASON to go on a ******** killing spree! Know what? I was sexually assaulted on a school bus at age 15, but you didn’t see me throwing out a murderous vendetta against all males. When I was starving myself to death with an eating disorder and got threatened with excommunication from my "church" (not "mainstream" Christian). I didn’t post to Facebook a crazed manifesto on how I would pick off each and every bishop in a 100 mile radius. Has anyone read the Facebook post this guy had? This guy had a victim mentality from the second he entered school. You’re upset that someone called you a racial slur in elementary school and were called a liar as an adult? I understand that’s insulting, but you know what? Plenty of people have been through FAR WORSE. SO MUCH WORSE that it’d make you want to throw up nonstop at the depravity. 
    WTF is WRONG with this guy? 
    That’s the end of my "rant," and I apologize it was so long. I …  sigh… I can’t help but comment on this guy. I guess I just wanted to let all the conservatives on this site know— that while I’m largely politically identified as a "democrat" (based on the larger yes/no aspects of religion, abortion, gay rights, etc– yes, that’s how I’ve identified, and I don’t mean to offend anyone with dissimilar beliefs I just wanted to have full disclosure), I absolutely fail to see how ANYONE could justify something like what this man is undergoing. And the most effed up thing is that I’ve SEEN it on other comments on some sites. Like, "Well, the LAPD is getting what they deserve, etc"…. Even if you WERE morally bankrupt enough to put weight behind that– I’m sorry, wasn’t the former police Chief’s DAUGHTER and her FIANCEE murdered??? Please, do tell– what did THEY do to this man to deserve being EXECUTED? I’m at a loss.
    Vaguely O/T, also…
    I think that there are too many "gun nuts" out there who are giving gun owners not just a bad name– but making it nearly impossible for gun owners to continue in their sport. Has anyone else had trouble buying ammunition lately? And I don’t mean like armor-piercing rounds, just regular, average ammunition? We went to Wal-mart, Cabello and Sportsman’s Warehouse (although…. I think it was rebought/renamed just recently) and they were ALL OUT of what we needed for shooting. Then we went to Big 5 and they had just 5 boxes left of the kind of ammunition we were needing. Has anyone else had this issue?
