Is it a surprise anymore when we find out the crazies who engage in these violent public mow-downs are riled up by religious extremist and eliminationist movements? Add George Sodini to the list.
As George Sodini wrote on December 29, 2008, "Just got back from tanning, been doing this for a while. No gym today, my elbow is sore again. I actually look good. I dress good, am clean-shaven, bathe, touch of cologne – yet 30 million women rejected me – over an 18 or 25-year period."
Media analysis has so far ignored or glossed over Sodini's religious affiliations but the shooter's Internet diary suggest his last readings were the Bible and a book by a Texas evangelist, R.B. Thieme, Jr. who has written that husbands own their wives, as literal property and promoted an odd teaching that for each man on Earth there exists only one correct "right woman" in all creation.
…George Sodini's weblog lays considerable blame for his self-admitted psychological problems on the Pittsburgh-based Tetelestai Church which by his account Sodini attended for 13 years, up through 2006. The pastor of Tetelestai, James R. Knapp, is one of a few luminaries in the small fundamentalist universe under the sway of Texas evangelist and prolific author R.B. Thieme, Jr. — a retired US Air Force Colonel known to wear his old military uniform while giving sermons who has been accused of cultic and authoritarian practices and wrote doctrine asserting that "[a] married woman is the property of the man she marries."
And it's obviously not a stretch to believe Sodini started hanging out at an "activism.militia" newsgroup, where he posted garbage you see coming right out of Freeperland.
I am convinced that more drastic action is required to bring the country back to the Constitutional order that it was 200 years ago. I don't think any group of political leaders will achieve this for us.
And as part of his legacy, this b*stard left this YouTube behind. (CBS):
It screens like a self help video of the damned.
George Sodini, the man police say walked into a Pennsylvania health club Tuesday night, calmly turned off the lights and fired 30 bullets into a room full of women before killing himself, has left one more disturbing legacy, a Youtube video in which he calmly stares at the camera and says “It is easy for me to hide from my emotions for one more day.” In the online video, which, according to Youtube, was posted more than a year ago, Sodini seems to be running through a self help checklist, talking about driving in his car, listening to music and day dreaming.
Did I add that this guy also has a problem with black folks? Take a look below the fold.
From his online diary/blog, that has since been taken down, documented at Huff Post:
Planned to do this in the summer but figure to stick around to see the election outcome. This particular one got so much attention and I was just curious. Not like I give a flying fuck who won, since this exit plan was already planned. Good luck to Obama! He will be successful. The liberal media LOVES him.
Amerika has chosen The Black Man. Good! In light of this I got ideas outside of Obama's plans for the economy and such. Here it is: Every black man should get a young white girl hoe to hone up on. Kinda a reverse indentured servitude thing. Long ago, many a older white male landowner had a young Negro wench girl for his desires. Bout' time tables are turned on that shit. Besides, dem young white hoez dig da bruthrs! LOL. More so than they dig the white dudes!
Every daddy know when he sends his little girl to college, she be bangin a bruthr real good. I saw it. "Not my little girl", daddy says! (Yeah right!!) Black dudes have thier choice of best white hoez. You do the math, there are enough young white so all the brothers can each have one for 3 or 6 months or so.
