Michael S. Rozeff writes at LewRockwell.com:
Expect severe distortion of the Dorner Manifesto by the MSM. You cannot simply read headlines and expect to know anything. You have to do more research than that to understand any issue. You also cannot read only the news articles of one or a few sources, especially the established or mainstream media. These routinely editorialize within so-called news accounts. They selectively choose and distort material.
A case in point is an article popping up in Google news that is here. It is written by Sharon Bernstein and it’s under an NBC affiliate (4NBC Southern California). I have also already seen and read a CNN article that interspersed misleading editorial statements with quotes from the Dorner Manifesto. Bernstein’s article is totally irresponsible journalism.
Ms. Bernstein msinterpets Dorner as choosing victims on the basis of race and sex bias. This is completely false!! In each case where race and sex are mentioned, he focuses on their behavior and what he charges them with doing. More on that below.
Her headline reads “Manifesto: Alleged Cop Revenge Shooter Named Targets, Blamed Asians, Hispanics and Lesbians.”
Dorner DOES NOT BLAME Asians, Hispanics and Lesbians per se. In each case, he blames them for specific reasons. These reasons are lousy reasons for murder, to be sure. But it is clear that he is not targeting various members of the LAPD for their race or sexual preference alone, but for their BEHAVIOR as he sees it.
I will first provide three quotes that show that he has nothing at all against the LGBT community:
“Ellen Degeneres, continue your excellent contribution to entertaining America and bringing the human factor to entertainment. You changed the perception of your gay community and how we as Americans view the LGBT community. I congratulate you on your success and opening my eyes as a young adult, and my generation to the fact that you are know different from us other than who you choose to love.”
“It’s time to allow gay service member’s spouses to utilize the same benefits that all heterosexual dependents are eligible for. Medical, Dental, Tricare, Deers, SGLI, BX, Commissary, Milstar, MWR, etc. Flag officers, lets be honest. You can’t really give a valid argument to as why gays shouldn’t be eligible as every month a new state enacts laws that allow same sex marriage.”
“LGBT community and supporters, the same way you have the right to voice your opinion on acceptance of gay marriage, Chick Fil-A has a right to voice their beliefs as well. That’s what makes America so great. Freedom of expression. Don’t be assholes and boycott/degrade their business and customers who patronize the locations. They make some damn good chicken! Vandalizing (graffiti) their locations does not help any cause.”
What does he say about lesbian officers in general, as a class? Nothing. He singles out certain ones that he thinks are treating males unfairly who are under their supervision:
“Those lesbian officers in supervising positions who go to work, day in day out, with the sole intent of attempting to prove your misandrist authority (not feminism) to degrade male officers. You are a high value target.”
Dorner says that he is making certain LAPD police, characterized by race, as his targets, each because of a different reason. It is the reasons that are important to him, not the race per se. In each case, race comes in because it is linked to a particular injustice that he perceives and dislikes.
