Skip to comments.The Chris Dorner Hero-Worship, on Both Sides of the Aisle
Posted on 02/14/2013 7:59:29 PM PST by Pining_4_TX
The most disheartening event in the country this week wasnt the State of the Union address, though that was certainly ugly enough.
And it wasnt the finale of the Chris Dorner rampage, which was certainly horrific enough in its waste of human life.
From the standpoint of the picture it paints for us of America circa 2013, its the reaction to Dorner.
The reaction of the Left to Dorner is hideous enough. Its personified by the vapid, disgusting and degenerate Marc Lamont Hill, who finds deep meaning and excitement in Dorners senseless mayhem and unhinged online ramblings
If you look for more Dorner fanboys on the Left, youll find them. Well not belabor that; there isnt much new there. As Andrew Klavan noted earlier this week, leftism is a philosophy of violence and it has been ever since Rousseau belched it forth from his spleen.
Whats worse, whats worst, is that Dorner has his fanboys on the Right.
We now see people calling themselves members of the Tea Party who echo some of the same sentiments the Marc Lamont Hills of the world are bleating.
These sound a bit more sophisticated than the mind-numbingly stupid defense of Dorner as an anti-establishment superhero who satisfies an onanistic, Bill Ayers-esque fantasy about killing cops. But theyre just as ugly.
The Tea Party and we use this description very guardedly defenses of Los Angeles newest cop-killer are that by tracking him down, cornering him and ultimately (we think) bringing about his fiery demise at Big Bear Lake, law enforcement violated Dorners 4th Amendment and 6th Amendment rights.

What people on the “right” has made him a hero? name them
Scroll through some threads here. While they aren’t overt, they sure do sympathize with his so called war on the LAPD.
No. They didn’t make Dorner a hero, just because they question the police tactics of shooting vehicles and crap
Excellent article...The cold blooded killer scumbag Dorner got exactly what he wanted and deserved. It’s a real shame he killed four people and wounded four people before he was taken out because he refused his due process under the law.
It was a situation that was remarkably MEXICAN in it's aroma!
I haven’t seen anyglorification of dorner anywhere but on the left. What evidence is offered to show that TEA Party members have shown either sympathy or empathy for dorner? I certainly haven’t seen any from Freepers. LAPD is as notorious and infamous as Chicago cops, but I have seen no one here call for their murders.
If wanting our police forces to be non-corrupt and reasonably intelligent when it comes to upholding the law makes us ‘sympathetic’ to an animal like dorner, I would sure like to see the proof rather than read about it from someone who offers little justification for this accusation.
Reactions are contextual.
Dorner didn’t murder everyone he met. Seems he had an agenda.
The LAPD it seems also had an agenda. Shoot everyone and burn the rest.
I agree...His “Rambo” image was blown out of proportion and it seems at least some in the LAPD were scared, thankfully there weren’t more killed and wounded.
Alicia Keys has already recorded a song in tribute the Dorner, it’s called, “This Man is On Fire.”
They could have dropped an a-bomb on his ass for all I care. He’s dead, he can’t kill anybody else.
People saying “wait him out” in that situation are the same people who think the cops should just shoot the gun out of the bad guy’s hand, instead of killing him.
“This Man is On Fire.”
“Chris P Dorner”
(passing it along CC)
Bill O’Reilly had Marc Lamont Hill on tonight and did not treat him with the deference he usually shows him. (BOR usually acts as if “Dr. Hill” is a great scholar and towering intellect.) He acted pretty ticked off at him for his comments about Dorner.
It was pretty obvious he was a mad man ~ LAPD is incapable of dealing with such people.
Dorner’s dead, got to find new enemies to hate, and if they’re on this side, so much the better, they’re closer!
Yep ... and burning people alive. I question the intelligence of someone who cannot tell the difference between criticism of police tactics and hate/love for a crazy cop killer.
If, however, those accounts are correct, the LAPD's war on Dorner is a red flag for everyone.
They, as evidenced by the fusilade unleashed against two women delivering papers, had decided they were judge, jury, and executioner, and operated in contemptuous violation of the Constitution. (The newspaper ladies weren't even shooting at them).
I'm a fan of the Constitution, not Dorner, and not the LAPD, either.
However, if there was widespread corruption in the department, I'd expect a mob-style hit order to 'just kill the m-f-er', because no one involved would want to take a chance that the lid would be peeled back during testimony in court.
As for the cabin, severely damage a predominantly wood structure and fire pyrotechnic tear gas rounds into the pile, and you can reasonably expect it will catch fire.
"Not knowing" it would cause a fire was the excuse used at Waco, too, after poking flue holes in the building and pumping the it full of CS powder carried in methylene chloride (a flammable liquid used in carburetor cleaner).
When those sworn to uphold the law are so willing to operate in contempt of it, no matter who they are, we should all be concerned.
some left fringers praised Dorner
some rightists don’t like the police
not the same thing
Whether or not Dorner had a legitimate beef against the LAPD regarding his firing WE will never know. If he did have a legitimate beef or not, his approach to dealing with HIS problem was abborant and disgusting. On the other hand, the over-reaction by law enforcement leading to members of law enforcement firing on two separate vehicles which had nothing to do with Dorner, severely injuring at least one elderly woman, is also abborant and disgusting.
Standard fascist psyops.
Believing that someone shouldn’t be burned to death isn’t exactly hero worship.
Familiarity breeds contempt.
Dormer biggest mistake was thinking his fellow LAPD officers were good honest men, and that they would be upset about homeless people being abused.
His next biggest mistake was killing these same corrupt police officers and thinking he could get away with it.
His last mistake was poor planning. If he wanted to make a point about the injustice he received he could have accomplished it without killing innocent people. If he was so smart he would be in Mexico instead of murdered by the same corrupt police he was trying to shine a light on. what a sick bass turd.
All you have to do is look at some of the comments made by Freepers. They seem to think the cops should have walked up to the door and read Dorner his rights. There was no doubt of this man’s guilt, nor of his ability to take people out, so why should any more police risk their lives to try and take the thug alive? Yet, even on FR, some are suggesting the cops kill and burn first and ask questions later.
there was no doubt of his guilt
a court determined that? Because the Constitution doesn’t go out the window because a perp admits what he did.
Bill Ayers admitted what he did. “Guilty as sin, free as a bird”, should he have been locked up despite getting off in court?
“Because the Constitution doesnt go out the window because a perp admits what he did.”
Nor are cops obligated to walk into a hail of bullets when some turd won’t give up without a fight.
If that is true, then the police ought to stand up and say so. Instead, they are denying they intended to start a fire.
Is it too much to expect our law enforcement agencies to be truthful?
In this case shooting up three innocent people out of sheer and utter fear and incompetence, and lack of any concern about non-police citizens, and then the predictable burning of the house.
There is nothing wrong with the populace pointing out the failings of law enforcement.
Aside from the freaky nature of them just shooting at totally unrelated people's like women and a skinny white guy, there didn't seem to be one wit of concern that seeing two figures in a vehicle indicated an innocent hostage, even if it was the 270 pound giant.
Another ASSumption based on what?
By SOME law enforcement which is a separate issue that should be dealt with judicially.
Were the young female basketball coach, her fiance and the father of two, Riverside police officer corrupt police officers?
The same court that found Dorner was burned to death, wasn't given due process and his civil rights were abused. I think there are some Freepers on that panel judges.
LAPD not Riverside PD or San Bernardino Sheriff's Dept. Different entities.
Yeah, I think it was Torrance cops who shot up the citizens, I don’t know who burnt the house, it isn’t a story I have been following, I’ve seen this enough times over my lifetime.
Once is too often, just like one child molestation, one rape, one traffic fatality. All are a sad fact of life that we all have to work at to curb. However, an entire profession shouldn't be smeared for the sins of a few. The officers involved in the shootings of the surfer and women should be dealt with judicially and held responsible criminally and financially.
You can have your personal feelings about the quality of police, but I have a lifetime of experience with them and I have my own opinions, go give the feel good lecture to some youngster.
Lecture? Are you always so dramatic?
LOL, whatever, just find someone else to tell your opinions to about law enforcement, I’m not interested.
But you had to respond. LOL!
Nor of any concern for the 40 or so bullets that went into innocent people's homes at the end of the street...
Just think of the tragedy had they seen Dorner walking down a sidewalk, or encountered him inside of a Mall...
Tell me what you would do if you were approaching a vehicle that you thought contained a known cop killer with automatic .50 cal weapons, and you had nothing but a handgun?
Verify that it was actually him first. The actions of the police officers in these incidents is inexcusable.
Yes. The best way to deal with reality is to learn it, and deal with it. Sometimes the police are truthful, sometimes they are not. They are certainly no better than average on that count, and given their position of power in the legal system, I would expect them to be less honest than people outside of the system.
Keep in mind that the system is "self policing," and is loath to admit error.
