Pentagon Attacker Was Right Wing Terrorist

(9 am. – promoted by ek hornbeck)

Yes, another one.  First a right wing terrorist flies a plane into an IRS office.  Now one attacks the Pentagon. From TPM:

The California man who opened fire last night outside the Pentagon was a property rights extremist who railed against the government’s ability to “confiscate the resources of their citizens to fund schemes that need only be justified by lies and deception,” and wanted to “eliminate the role of the government in education.”

In a recorded manifesto called “Directions To Freedom”, the audio of which he posted online in 2006, John Patrick Bedell, of Hollister, California, praised private property as “the most successful basis for structuring society that humanity has ever known.”

Bedell shot two police officers last night during the rampage, before being mortally wounded himself.

“Communist and socialist governments that abolished or disregarded private property,” said Bedell in the recording, “created poverty, repression and murder on a truly enormous scale.” But, he continued, “Even in the United States, however, there has been a continual erosion of protection of private property justified by the belief that government is an efficient instrument for the positive direction of society.”


Where is the outrage from Dick Cheney and the nether regions of GlennBeckistan?



    Kurt Haskell gave us the Christmas fruit of the boom patsy.

    911 truthers and New World Order watchers give us the term sheeple.

  2. ….sees right wing terrorists as “maladjusted  freedom fighters”, or American citizens who “snapped”.

    The “T” word is reserved for those who are pushing back against US imperialism.

  3. pointing out to these angry, confused citizens that in the USA, especially since Reagan, it is not the Government that is oppressing them but the large corporations. The Government exists to make sure that no one gets in the way of the corporations. While the effort has been bi-partisan at least since Bill Clinton’s “triangulation” era, (if you can’t lick ’em, join ’em!),it has been Republicans, starting with their hero, Ronnie, who have both provided air cover, (Ronnie), and lead the way, convincing people like them that “government was the problem” while working assiduously to make certain that in in fact government was the problem when-ever they were in power.
