Domestic terrorist Eric Rudolph complains about prison, mocks victims
“As I go to a prison cell for a lifetime, I know that ‘I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith,’ “
— wisdom from the lips of Eric Robert Rudolph during his sentencing.
He had plenty of swagger back in 2005, when he pleaded guilty to bombing an Atlanta gay bar (the Otherside Lounge), two abortion clinics in Birmingham, AL. The lowlife most famously set off a blast at the 1996 Olympics that he said was to “confound, anger and embarrass” the government because women have the right to reproductive freedom.
His acts killed two people and injured 120 with his bombs created with dynamite and covered in nails which acted as shrapnel.
Now Eric Robert Rudolph, who was captured in the North Carolina Mountains in 2003 after five years on the run, is complaining about his accommodations at a Supermax prison in Colorado, where he is sentenced to serve life without parole. (Charlotte Observer):
Unrepentant, Olympics and abortion clinic bomber Eric Rudolph sits in his cell at Supermax complaining about being treated like a “terrorist” and composing “satires” mocking his victims.
…In correspondence with The Gazette during the past 15 months, Rudolph refers to himself as a political prisoner and accuses the federal Bureau of Prisons of inhumane treatment for keeping him and other terrorists in their cells for 23 hours a day.
“It is a closed-off world designed to isolate inmates from social and environmental stimuli, with the ultimate purpose of causing mental illness and chronic physical conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and arthritis,” Rudolph wrote last month to The Gazette.
There are viable reasons to question some of the practices going on in our penal system regarding the treatment of inmates, but the whining of Rudolph, who used his free will to decide to kill and maim, won’t find a receptive audience.
At his sentencing hearings in Birmingham and Atlanta last summer, Rudolph read a statement saying he bombed two abortion clinics because “abortion is murder, and because it is murder I believe deadly force is needed to stop it.”
In his 16 page “satire” about his sentencing that he sent to the Colorado Springs Gazette, he shows what a sociopath he is. He mocks the legal team and judge who put him away as well as Diane Derzis, manager of the Birmingham family planning clinic this man bombed in 1998. He describer Derzis in his manuscript as “brassy, worldly, the kind of woman who had not only been around the block a few times but was probably dragged behind a truck the entire way.”
You can read the full text of Eric Rudolph’s written statement, which includes this diatribe against homosexuality.
Along with abortion, another assault upon the integrity of American society is the concerted effort to legitimize the practice of homosexuality. Homosexuality is an aberrant sexual behavior, and as such I have complete sympathy and understanding for those who are suffering from this condition. Practiced by consenting adults within the confines of their own private lives, homosexuality is not a threat to society. Those, consenting adults practicing this behavior in privacy should not be hassled by a society which respects the sanctity of private sexual life. But when the attempt is made to drag this practice out of the closet and into the public square in an “in your face” attempt to force society to accept and recognize this behavior as being just as legitimate and normal as the natural man/woman relationship, every effort should be made, including force if necessary, to halt this effort.
This effort is commonly known as the homosexual agenda. Whether it is gay marriage, homosexual adoption, hate crimes laws including gays, or the attempt to introduce a homosexual normalizing curriculum into our schools, all of these efforts should be ruthlessly opposed. The existence of our culture depends upon it. It is the duty of the state to promote the public welfare and this includes holding up values and model behaviors which tend to create a healthy society capable of reproducing itself by the natural means of the family unit. This model behavior which lies at the heart of a healthy society is the marriage between a man and a woman. To place the homosexual relationship along side of the model and pronounce it to be just as legitimate a lifestyle choice is a direct assault upon the long term health and integrity of civilization and a vital threat to the very foundation of society – and this foundation is the family hearth.
Any conscientious individual afflicted with homosexuality should acknowledge that a healthy society requires a model of sexual behavior to be held up and maintained without assault. Like other humans suffering from various disabilities homosexuals should not attempt to infect the rest of society with their particular illness.
