On Monday, February 9th, in Knox County Criminal Court, Jim David Adkisson pleaded guilty to murder in the first degree . Last July, the 58 year old Adkisson engaged in a deadly shooting spree at the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church , killing two churchgoers and wounding six others.
As is often the case with these incidents of apparently insane violence, the first question we ask ourselves is; why? Well, in this case, we know why. Adkisson wrote a manifesto telling us, and it is chilling for it’s lucidity and for its all too familiar theme.
To whom it may concern:
I guess you’re wondering why I did this. Well, let me explain in detail.
Over the years I’ve had some good jobs, but I always got layed off. Now I’m 58 years old & I can’t get a decent job. I’m told I’m “overqualified,” which is a code word for “too damned old.” Like I’m expected to age gracefully into poverty. No thanks! I’m done!I’ve always wondered why I was put on the earth. For years I thought I was put here to die as cannon fodder in VietNam but somehow cheated the devil out of it. Lately I’ve been feeling helpess in our war on Terrorizm. But I realized I could engage the terrorists allies here in America. The best allies they’ve got.
The Democrates! The democrates have done everything they can do to tie our hands in this War on Terror. They’re all abunch of traitors. They want America to loose this war for reasons I can not understand. It makes me soooo mad!
In a parallel train of thought; It saddens me to think back on all the bad things that Liberalism has done to this country. The worst problem America faces today is Liberalism. They have dumbed down education. They have defined deviancy down. Liberals have attacked every major institution that made America great. From the Boy Scouts to the military, from education to Religion. The major news outlets have become the propaganda arm of the Democrat Party. Liberals are evil, they embrace the tenets of Karl Marx, they’re Marxist, socialist, communists.
The Unitarian Universalist Church
Don’t let the word church mislead you. This isn’t a church, it’s a cult. They don’t even believe in God. They worship the God of Secularizm. These sick people aren’t Liberals, they’re Ultra-Liberals. This is a collection of sicko’s, weirdo’s, & homo’s. The UU church is the fountainhead, the veritable wellspring of anti-American organizations like Moveon.org, Code Pink, and other un-American groups.
These people are absolute Hypocrits. They embrace every pervert that comes down the pike, but if they find out your a conservative, they absolutely hate you.
I know. I experienced it.
I can’t for the life of me understand why these people would embrace Marxism like they do.
I’d like someone to do an exposé on this church, it’s a den of un-American Vipers.
They call themselves “Progressive.” How is a white woman having a niger baby progress? How is a man sticking his dick up another man’s ass progress?
It’s an abomination.
It takes a warped mind to hate America.
It makes me so angry. I can’t live with it anymore!
The environmental nuts have to be stopped.
Know This If Nothing Else
I. This was a hate crime:
I hate the damn left-wing liberals. There is a vast left-wing conspiracy in this country & these liberals are working together to attack every decent & honorable institution in the nation, trying to turn this country into a communist state. Shame on them.
II. This was a Political Protest:
I’m protesting the liberal Supreme Court Justices for give the terrorists at GITMO constitutional rights. I’m protesting the major News outlets, ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, PBS for being the propaganda wing of the Democrat Party. It’s criminal what they’re getting away with. They’re traitors! They must be stopped!
I’m protesting the DNC running such a radical leftist candidate, Osama Hussein OBama, yo Mama. No experience, no brains, a joke. Dangerous to America. Hell, he looks like Curious George!
III. This was a symbolic killing.
Who I wanted to kill was every Democrat in the Senate & House, the 100 people in Bernard Goldberg’s book. I’d like to kill everyone in the Mainstream Media. But I knew these people were inaccessible to me. I couldn’t get to the generals & high ranking officers of the Marxist movement so I went after the foot soldiers, the chicken shit liberals that vote in these traitorous people. Someone had to get the ball rolling. I volunteered. I hope others do the same. It’s the only way we can rid America of this cancer, this pestilence.
No one gets out of this world alive so I’ve chosen to skip the bad years of poverty. I know my life is going downhill fast from here. The future looks bleak. I’m sick & tired of being sick & tired. I’m absolutely fed up. So I thought I’d do something good for this Country. Kill Democrats til the cops kill me. If decent patriotic Americans could vote 3 times in every election we couldn’t stem this tide of liberalism that’s destroying America. Liberals are a pest like termites. Millions of them. Each little bite contributes to the downfall of this great nation. The only way we can rid ourselves of this evil is kill them in the streets. Kill them where they gather. I’d like to encourage like-minded people to do what I’ve done. If life ain’t worth living anymore, don’t just kill yourself, do something for your Country before you go. Go Kill Liberals. Tell the cop that killed me that I said, “Thanks, I needed that.”
I have no next of kin, no living relatives. If you would take my sorry carcass to the body farm or donate it to science, or just throw me in the Tennessee River.
Jim David Atkisson
What do you think? Sound familiar? Have you heard anything like this lately, on either radio or television? Maybe the pulpit, even? And we wonder where people like this get such crazy ideas.
