As police continue searching for an ex-Los Angeles police officer wanted in connection with the killing of a police officer and two others, conservative web sites are pointing out his left-leaning politics.
News outlets Thursday published some or all of a rambling manifesto allegedly written by Christopher Jordan Dorner, who police are seeking. The document praises prominent Democrats and media figures and expresses support for gun control. It also gives a shout-out to actor Charlie Sheen and Michelle Obama's bangs.
"SUSPECTED MASS-MURDERER'S MANIFESTO ENDORSES HILLARY, OBAMA, GUN CONTROL, ELITE MEDIA," is a headline on Breitbart.com. That article accuses the mainstream media of "selectively reporting parts of the manifesto, leaving out details that would reflect badly on them. The Daily Caller has a story with a headline, "Suspected cop killer an Obama, Piers Morgan fan."Morgan, a strong supporter of gun control, who hosts a prime-time CNN interview program, tweeted his reactions to the attention given to him for being named in the manifesto.
"The LA cop-killer murder spree has nothing to do with politics and everything to do with deranged criminality. I hope they catch him asap," Morgan tweeted. He also wrote, "Shocking to see how many gun rights tweeters think this shocking LA cop-killer's manifesto is something to joke about. It's not."
