Who knew? Clay Duke, who opened fire on a Florida school board Tuesday, was a left-wing kook railing against “the rich.” He left a post on his Facebook page that he called his “last testament.” In it he blames the wealthy for his troubles. He also linked to a slug of “progressive” websites such as theprogressivemind.info and MediaMatters.org.
Here is his “last testament:”
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…
The media will just have to ignore all this. I mean, you know, if the madman was not a right winger or a tea partier it’s not a story.
I wonder why people who think like Clay Duke don’t just move some place where there are no rich people. Let’s see, Zimbabwe might be such a place, or say, Mexico which would be easier to get to. Better yet, how about Chechnya? Oh, I forgot, there are rich people in those countries. But at least a lot fewer than here. Except for one thing, Clay ole buddy, those rich in those places are actually really really very very rich and , they really do all the things you accuse everyone in American who has more than you of doing.
Clay would have found out one other thing in those countries. Before he was able to get a gun and murder a bunch of school board members he probably would have been shot in the back of the head and dumped in a ditch by the soldiers who protect “the rich” in those countries.
