Americans are watching with morbid fascination as authorities continue to search high and low for Christopher Dorner, the former Los Angeles Police officer and naval intelligence analyst who allegedly shot and killed one police officer and two civilians, as well as wounding two more officers.
The mainstream media has breathlessly covered almost every detail of the days-old manhunt, diverging only slightly when reporters note that an increasing number of Americans are actually supporting this psycho, believing somehow that his murderous rampage is justified.
But then, it is sympathy the press created, after cherry-picking through a lengthy 11,000-word "manifesto" he published online prior to launching his crime spree.
Not cool for a crazed murderer to be an Obama supporter
The media has well-documented that Dorner had a beef with the LAPD, and that he believes his firing from the department in 2007 was punitive and unfair.
What is far less known; however, are several details contained in his manifesto that reporters and editors don't want to discuss and don't want you to know because it would be embarrassing for their idol in Washington, D.C.
One such tantalizing detail is that Dorner, who is African-American, is a huge fan of President Obama and first lady Michelle 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. A woman whose professional and educational accomplishments are second to none when compared to recent First wives.
Dorner went on to say he didn't vote for Obama in the last election because his preferred candidate, Jon Huntsman, did not win the GOP presidential nomination. But he continued to lavish praise on the president anyway:
Mr. President, I haven't agreed with all of your decisions but of course I haven't agreed with all of your predecessors' decisions. I think you've done a hell of a job with what you have been dealt and how you have managed it. I shed a tear the night you were initially elected President in 2008. I never thought that day would occur. A black man elected president in the U.S. in my lifetime. I cracked a smiled when you were re-elected in 2012 because I really didn't think you were going to pull that one off. ... Mr. President, get back to work. Many want to see you fail as they have stated so many times previously. Unfortunately, if you fail, the U.S. fails but your opponents do not concern themselves about the big picture.
Other details that would likely harm their favorite fugitive's reputation include:
--Being a fan of the gaffe-prone Vice President Joe Biden: "Mr. Vice President, do your due diligence when formulating a concise and permanent national AWB (assault weapons bill) plan. Future generations of Americans depend on your plan and advisement to the president. I've always been a fan of yours and consider you one of the few genuine and charismatic politicians."
--Not hating on Piers Morgan (like most other Americans): "...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 percent on enacting stricter firearm laws." (Note: Dorner is suspected of having access to a large amount of weapons; insert hypocrisy here.)
--One of the few remaining CNN, MSNBC viewers: "Chris Matthews, Joe Scarborough, Pat Harvey, Brian Williams, Soledad Obrien, Wolf Blitzer, Meredith Viera, Tavis Smiley, and Anderson Cooper, keep up the great work and follow Cronkite's lead. I hold many of you in the same regard as Tom Brokaw and the late Peter Jennings." (How can you, as a member of the mainstream media, trash someone who loves the mainstream media?)
It's hard to like a crazed killer of innocent men and women, but many in the media seem to like Christopher Dorner because they are shielding him by protecting those he is associating with.
