Posted on 12/15/2010 8:13:43 AM PST by blog.Eyeblast.tv
By now, most people have heard about Clay Duke entering a Panama City, FL school board meeting, painting a V on the wall in red spray paint- which appears in the comic book and movie V for Vendetta- and opening fire on the board members before a security guard began exchanging shots with Duke- who ultimately died from what is believed to be a self-inflicted wound.
The video below is from a different angle and contains a little more interaction between Duke and the school board members than most videos going around. You really cant see all that much once the shooting begins. As said earlier, no one was killed except for Clay.
However, who was Clay Duke?
According to his Facebook profile, Duke lists his political views as Freedom Fighter, religious views as Humanism, and bought heavily into class warfare rhetoric. This is specified from some of the quotes within his profile, they read:

Probably one o’ them teabagger, right-wing extremist types ... right?
He was an ex-con who yrs ago tried to killed his wife.
As I figured. A lefty - bet he’ll be spun as otherwise, though.
If one person had been armed to defend themselves against this guy, he would probably be dead now. Maybe he was hoping someone would take him out-—
By the end of the day, he will have been a tea ‘bagger’
He was a wack job.
Shooting up the school committee though? Thats just nuts.
Probably not going to end well.
He is dead
im sure this story will soon fade away now that the media has figured out the gunman was a left wing radical.
Fortunately, he was so inept that he killed no one but himself.
He is dead.
I understood one person was armed and wounded the perp. He then took his own life with the only on-target shot he made.
Class warrior, V for Vendetta fan, liberal America hater, bad shot, professional decomposer.
Two houses on Cape Cod were torched over the weekend with the words “F*** the Rich” on them.
Poetry from his facebook page called “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.
13394, Teabagger? This guy’s note on Facebook could have been written by almost any one on DU.

13509, I hate it that what you say, is something I thought myself.
We need to find a way to tone down the rhetoric and channel the anger.

13527, In my opinion his rhetoric is dead on, even if his actions were extreme.

Obama is doing a heck of a job fomenting class warfare.
