Ex LAPD officer Christopher Dorner, who went on a rampage, has become a Leftist icon. With the release of his Progressive manifesto many on the Left like Charles Johnson and Wonkette openly sympathize with Dorner.
The ex-LAPD officer and former Navy reservist who posted a 14-page “manifesto” detailing his plans for a revenge-fueled rampage across California is still at large, with the search expanding into other regions.
He is a suspect in the shooting deaths of three people, including a member of Riverside PD, and the daughter of Dorner’s former lawyer.
None of this has dissuaded a group of ardent supporters who back Dorner for a variety of reasons. #GoDornerGo, #WeAreAllChrisDorner and other hashtags have been gaining momentum on Twitter. Some supporters appear to be motivated by personal issues; others express anti-hero worship and fugitive fandom to push specific agendas.
If Christopher Dorner had been a Conservative/Libertarian he would be enemy #1 and the Right would be tied to him. Obama would be out campaigning against Right Wing violence. But since Dorner is a Progressive he gets a pass and has become an idol.
Now to be fair, some who support Dorner do so because they hate the LAPD. Ask any California resident about the LAPD and they will tell you it is more of a paramilitary force of thugs than a police force. But had Dorenr been a Conservative/Libertarian, would there have been support for his acts? Nope, it would have been used to prove the Right is violent. This is a blatant double standard.
