Anthrax Killer Was a Cross-dressing Obama Fan

Bruce Ivins, anthrax killer

I’ve been sitting on this one waiting for the right time to release it, and I believe that moment has arrived.  Republican Heretic informs us that tax payer-funded NPR has run yet another hit piece about “rightwing violence” and the Tea Parties.

Following a meme already developed by the left, NPR has run a slanderous hit-piece that refers to an upswing in “right-wing hate groups” and “patriot groups” and a potential increase in violence from these groups.  The proof?  Why, Joe Stack and Patrick Bedell, both insane and both left-of-center politically. It’s great to know that right-wing extremism is to blame for left-wing nutjobs killing people.  The NPR piece references the far-left propaganda machine, the Southern Poverty Law center, which has a long history of ignoring violent groups on the left and classifying any right-wing political group it can find as violent and hate-filled.

Warner Todd Huston at Right Wing News comments:

The piece goes on to report that this sort of violence is a “troubling trend” and lays it all at the feet of “patriot and militia groups.”  NPR then tries to prove its case by discussing the two most recent sensational attackers on government facilities; Joe Stack and John Patrick Bedell.

Joe Stack, a disturbed man who crashed his small plane into an IRS building in Austin, Texas back in February, was not known to have any ties to any tea party group, any “patriot” group, or other right-wing groups. His manifesto reads like a confused communist rant with hate for the U.S. government and George W. Bush liberally sprinkled throughout. But NPR lumps this nut in with the right with claims that they are all dangerous to government officials and facilities.

NPR similarly uses as proof of these dangerous patriots the disturbed actions of John Patrick Bedell who opened fire on officers near the Pentagon on March 4.  Bedell was an anti-war protester, heavy marijuana user, and exhibited paranoia for which he refused to seek medical help. Bedell also has no known ties to tea party groups, any political organizations, or NPR’s frightening “patriot groups.”  Yet NPR put forth both of these sick-minded men as examples of “patriots” that have become dangerous and unstable. If NPR wasn’t saying so why include them in this report?

Republican Heretic’s post does a fine job of debunking the lightweights at NPR.  To which CCHQ adds this final nail in the coffin.  Stop the Leftwing hate crimes, say no to Obamamania:


MARCH 1–After the Department of Justice last month formally closed its probe of the 2001 anthrax attacks, the FBI released the first batch of documents detailing the years-long investigation that ended with officials concluding that Bruce Ivins, a government scientist who committed suicide in July 2008, was responsible for the mailings that killed five victims.

Despite being an FBI target, Ivins was often forthcoming about the details of his strange obsessions and private life. For example, as seen below, when agents executed search warrants in late-2007, an FBI supervisor asked Ivins if he was worried about those raids. Ivins said he was, noting that he did things a “middle age man should not do,” adding that his actions would “not be acceptable to most people.”

He then noted that agents searching his basement would find a “bag of material that he uses to ‘cross-dress,'” according to an interview report. During a January 2008 meeting with agents, Ivins described his bizarre decades-long “obsession” with the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority, and detailed how he broke into two KKG chapters to steal ritual books used by the group.

The FBI records show that some Ivins acquaintances shared with the FBI e-mail and instant message communications exchanged with the scientist. In a July 2008 e-mail, Ivins wrote that “Dick Cheney scares me. The Patriot Act is so unconstitutional it’s not even funny.” He added,  What happenned to rights, freedoms and civil liberties?  “I’m voting for Obama!”

Are you listening, NPR? Stop playing these games.
