    Perhaps the truth is more revealing:

    he chilling Facebook statement, posted under the “About Clay” section, talks about being born poor and how the rich “take turns fleecing us”:

    My Testament: Some people (the government sponsored media) will say I was evil, a monster (V)… no… I was just born poor in a country where the Wealthy manipulate, use, abuse, and economically enslave 95% of the population. Rich Republicans, Rich Democrats… same-same… rich… they take turns fleecing us… our few dollars… pyramiding the wealth for themselves. The 95%… the us, in US of A, are the neo slaves of the Global South. Our Masters, the Wealthy, do, as they like to us…

    In addition to the note, Duke also includes a reference to class warfare:

    “There’s class warfare, all right, but its my class, the rich class that’s making war and we’re winning”
    – Warren Buffet

    And then issues a call to rise up, which seems to be from a poem titled “The Mask of Anarchy”:

    Rise like lions after slumber
    In unvanquishable number.
    Shake your chains to earth like dew.
    Which in sleep has fallen on you.
    Ye are many – they are few.

    Besides the writings, Duke also includes an exhaustive list of links under the quote “You want the truth? You can’t handle the truth!” The page includes a link dedicated to Wikileaks, another to a progressive 9/11 truther site, and even Media Matters:

    Then there is the fact that he was mentally ill, bi-polar disorder. In fact he wrote a letter to a judge asking that his probation be revoked because he recognized he was unbalanced.

    So, if being a fan of Media Matters and hating the rich makes someone a right-winger, then what’s left for the Left?


    • Notice I didn’t call any person a right-winger- I just mentioned the connection.

        Excellent catch- I’ll be spreading this around.
        Hopefully this crusade against “Enemy Americans” starts being covered for what it really is- a culture war on the different….

        Sure sounds like you are embracing the C-girls smear. Doesn’t the truth make this a little different?


        • Truth is, I’m against violent extremism of any sort.


          • Craig Moore says:

            Don, however you seem rather quick to condemn and declare crusade agaist “Enemy Americans” before knowing who they are. Is the mentally ill shooter one of your declared enemies?


            • No, I’m talking about anyone who declares other groups of Americans “enemies”. Your comprehension skills are abysmal.
              And why do you keep calling me “Don”?


              • Craig Moore says:

                D, sorry about the name confusion. I thought the D stood for Don. Actually, your fact finding, analysis and communication skills are abysmal.

                Start fresh, what was your point in approving of C-girl’s scurrilous smear and declaring you would spread it around as you have done here? I thought your were an advocate of the mentally ill? Why do you not see this sick person as deserving of understanding rather than a lightning rod for ideological derision?

                I’ll ask again, if being a fan of Media Matters, being mentally ill, and hating the rich makes someone a right-winger, then what oxygen remains for the Left?

                How about a straight answer this time?


                • I applauded her catch of the permeation of the meme of violence which seems to give people permission to act out- the mentally ill are especially susceptible.
                  This gun-toting, revenge-swearing, violence-advocating, ignorance-loving meme seems to be the intellectual property of the low right, but you are correct, it is not their exclusive province.
                  I simply felt the catch of the “movement” behind the event was worth calling attention to- and spreading around. I shall try to be more clear in the future.
                  Thanks for writing.

    I’m curious how you label this “right-wing” extremism? From the sounds of it he had a very specific grip involving class warfare and wealth.

    Previous posters are right. You’ve left up the original post which says “right wing” extremism, when this was far from the sort…
