Left-Wing Climate of Hate: Deception and Suppression Keep Casey Brezik Off National Radar

Actually, it did make Fox News, "Man Charged in Dean's Stabbing at College Minutes Before Speech." And AP, "Man Who Stabbed Penn Valley Comm. College Dean Targeted Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon."

Casey Brezik

But the story didn't gain much more traction nationally, as Ed Driscoll notes, "Doesn’t Fit the Narrative, or Drive the Agenda." And at Gateway Pundit, "Far Left Activist Slashes Throat of Man He Mistakes For Governor – Media Silent." And from Jack Cashill, "Left Wing Climate of Hate and Assassination":
Successful propaganda is composed of equal parts deception and suppression, and the apparatchiks in the mainstream media are much better at the latter.

They may have erred in pushing the Arizona assassination attempt beyond its ideological limits last week, but they succeeded brilliantly a few months earlier in suppressing news of a nearly lethal attempt by a genuine leftist.
The Other McCain has video clips: "Democrat Attacked After Vitriolic Rhetoric From Sarah Palin … No? Never Mind."

But I love this one the best, "Victimless Crime File: Pot Smoking Anarchist Casey Brezik Tries to Kill Community College Dean":
Brezik was reported to have been covered in “demonic” tattoos and to have scribbled a strange symbol on one of the schools walls. Some sources claim that the “demonic” symbols and tattoos were anarchist signs.

This was also not his first rodeo. He was arrested at the G-20 meetings earlier this year, something he proudly wrote about on his Facebook page:

Brezik’s Facebook page paints a portrait of an angry man. He had 26 friends and bragged in June about being the first person arrested at the G-20 Summit.

“Crossed the security fence. Ran from the cops. Was tackled. Spit on an officer. Was arrested, charged, and deported. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED,” he wrote.

For that Brezik spent two days in jail and got ten days (?!?) probation for assaulting a police officer. Had Canada taken his assault of a police officer more seriously today’s violence may not have happened.

Brezik’s devolution began much earlier however. His family reported him missing in March 2009 and he was listed as an endangered missing adult, which means he may have had mental health issues. Marijuana use is known to exacerbate existing mental problems.

It’s easy to blame Casey Brezik’s left wing politics for this violence, but the truth is that these traveling “radicals” are a drug culture and Casey Brezik was a user. The May Day riot in Asheville was another example of these “anarchists” getting high and running wild and the truth about anarchism is that troubled souls who self-medicate and drug addicts are 90% of that movement.

One thing I want to point out here is that marijuana played a significant roll in Brezik’s lifestyle and ultimately his crime. He was high when he tried to murder an innocent person and had more weed on him, suggesting that he planned on getting high again. Would he have tried to kill someone without pot? Maybe. But we know that if pot was legal this crime still would have happened and Brezik’s access to pot facilitated his insanity. This is not a victimless crime.

Agreed, Don: schizophrenic people shouldn't be smoking weed (or own guns). I'll bet that if we threw 700,000 people a year into jail for doing so it would keep crazy people from doing it too, right? And if we just took everyone's guns away crazy people would never shoot anyone else, right? Right? Right.

JBW, your logic is spot on, and sends Don's marijuana strawman up in smoke. People like Don want to control others by taking away their free will and freedoms just because some lunatic uses an object insanely. They will target sugar, soda, alcohol, buttered popcorn, guns, the weather, or anything else they can label as the avenue for evil acts, but never, never blame the leftist perpetrator, the mental illness, or the twisted political beliefs. Such blame is reserved for female and/or black conservatives, white conservative males, and non-gay members of the military. Marijuana made him do it? Reality check on aisle three!

I think it is the lack of knowledge that these people have. I have many friends that liken themselves to anarchists and look up to people like Che. They are friends of mine, but they are foolish. I repeatedly batter them down, trying to make them realize the folly of their false glorification. Pot gives idiots idle time to wax philosophical. This breeds stupidity and false prophets (mostly left wing loonies, musicians, and controversial writers) These poor souls, don't educate themselves on modern politics or foreign policy, they regurgitate ideas from other pot heads, and are praised for their enlightened minds. I have quite a few on my side though...

Thanks, twolaneflash. Your characterization of Don wanting to control others' personal behaviour is correct but I think your assertion that conservatives, white people and non-gays are the only ones who catch blame for evil acts is erroneous and not born out by history.

Anon, regardless of your views on anarchism, I think that it's safe to say that pot gives everyone idle time to wax philosophical. The idiots are going to remain uneducated and unoriginal no matter which drug they choose, or even if they choose no drug at all. And false prophets and loons proliferate on both sides of the political spectrum.
