Distortion of Dorner Manifesto by Mainstream Media

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.

    This article is probably misleading in it’s own right. I don’t have time for links right now but Google “dorner manifesto different versions”. Who knows what the truth is anymore?

    as psyops go
    this is really 10+

    being extremely detached from Der Homeland’s Media Massage as eye am
    it seems to me that
    reflecting on the details of this story for more than a few minutes
    is mental masturbation

    the far more interesting neglected story is the police drive-by shooting
    almost killed two women who were guilty of driving black
    my masturbatory fantasy of that goes like this: http://youtu.be/52t3YlaYhCY

    This is ugly on both ends. If I had his drive to punish the cops, I would prank them and make them chase ghosts. Losing inner equanimity, then acting haltingly out of anger with the same bulling violent method as the pigs is asking for misfortune. RIP to all of those dead over this.

      Well, perhaps you can look forward to all the “Droner Still Lives” copycats.

        Droner just goes on and on and on…

    seems to my he’s merely pointing out hypocracy. If you’re a lesbian and you don’t respect people, you’re a hypocrite. If you’re hispanic and you harass hispanic people, you’re a hypocrite.

    Seems pretty simple to me. May as well call out Ice Cube for his line in “Fuck the Police” (by N.W.A) “Black police showin’ off for the White Cop.”

    as i see it dorner had balls (courage) to do what many people wish they could do the rotten corrupt cops the only killings i think were wrong was that couple they were innocent. but i understand his motives for doing it but i didnt agree with that couple targeted but his motive was him wanting to hurt and get revenge on her dad that he saw as responsible for his firing and since he was not able to find no doubt he was hiding and scared like a coward! but in his eyes it was a just killing becuz in his mind he was at war and in war there are always going to be collateral damage. but again i dont agree with that innocent couple getting killed but i do understand his motives and anger

    I think it’s time we all joined the Tea Party and demanded even more guns, even more armor, and even more arbitrary power for the Police. Then when they rampage and murder mentally disabled people in movie theatres, we can just blame the “lib” and assure ourselves that we had nothing to do with it.
