GAVIN EUGENE LONG: Cop-Killer in Baton Rouge Was Racist and Also, Crazy

Posted on | July 17, 2016 | 25 Comments


The maniac who killed three police in Baton Rouge and wounded three others was both racist and insane. Ranting against “crackers” on YouTube, talking about “revolution” and “my people” with the delusional grandiosity typical of a paranoid schizophrenic:

Long also said that bloodshed was the only way to win against oppression.
“One hundred percent of revolutions, of victims fighting their oppressors, from victims fighting their bullies, 100% have been successful through fighting back through bloodshed,” he said in one video. “Zero have been successful through simply protesting. It has never been successful and it never will.”
He also referred to himself as an alpha male, unafraid of taking that step.
“If y’all want to keep protesting, do that, but for the serious ones, the real ones, the alpha ones, we know what it’s going to take.”

Yeah, “victims fighting their oppressors” — dude from Kansas City drives to Baton Rouge and shoots six cops who never knew this doomed loser.

How do cops in Baton Rouge oppress someone in Kansas City?

Your TV is making you crazy! Sitting around watching CNN all day, brooding about how you’re a victim of oppression?

That’s crazy, and it’s dangerous. Go watch this YouTube video in which Gavin Long relates “principles for my people.” It was recorded five days ago, and the dude’s just rambling incoherently. Lunatics rambling incoherently on the Internet — well, there’s a lot of that going around lately, but some crazy people are clearly more dangerous than others.

    Just remember objecting to a group like #BlackLivesMatter that calls for the assassination of cop is racists and you will be called a White Supremacist, even if you are Hispanic!

    You know I could go on about Obama and Holder and what have you but the bottom line is this: Be very very careful out there, we are in uncharted waters.

    Not really. Just read some history and you’ll get your bearings.

    Thing is, we’ve moved beyond the repeating as farce stage. This hasn’t even begun to get ugly yet. Years from now those of us who survive will look back on this as the calm before the storm.

    And right on cue anonymous goon @NicoleBonnet1 is calling me a racist because I accurately call #BLM a hate group. I guess anon coward @NicoleBonnet1 and her sycophant Katie Murphy are fine with the call for the assassination of police and law enforcement. Can’t you just feel the liberal tolerance.

    He’s not crazy just stupid. Another sucker who’s fallen for the lefts spiel. They provide the rhetoric and he and others like him as well as the victims pay the freight. There are people on and in the media who yammer that the solution is a dialogue about their grievances, calling the Dallas shooter a martyr and fools like this guy think they’ve got his back. The Bolsheviks have been telling people like him that everything wrong with his life and the lives of those around him is all Whitey’s fault for two generations. His actions are merely Democratic talking points taken to their logical conclusion.

    To amplify Adobe’s point above, emphasizing the “crazy” aspect of the shooter’s character and deploying terms like “paranoid schizophrenic” plays into the Left’s hands and provides it with deniability. That is, instead of being held accountable for the disingenuous (at best) rhetoric which is fomenting this violence, it can simply claim the shooter was a one-off lunatic. As with all such Left/Progressive-inspired movements which degenerate into bloodshed, such “plausible” deniability is relied upon to give the Left cover to continue stirring the pot. Gavin Long was not a nut; he was the foreseeable consequence of the Left’s continual war on America.

    “The madman’s explanation of a thing is always
    complete, and often in a purely rational sense satisfactory. Or, to
    speak more
    strictly, the insane explanation, if not conclusive, is at least
    unanswerable; this may be observed specially in the two or
    three commonest kinds of madness. If a man says (for instance)
    that men have a conspiracy against him, you cannot dispute
    it except by saying that all the men deny that they are
    conspirators; which is exactly what conspirators
    would do. His explanation covers the facts as much as yours.
    Or if a man says that he is the rightful King of England,
    it is no complete answer to say that the existing authorities call
    him mad; for if he were King of England that might be the
    wisest thing for the existing authorities to do. Or if a man says
    that he is Jesus Christ, it is no answer to tell him that
    the world denies his divinity; for the world denied Christ’s.

    Nevertheless he is wrong. But if we attempt
    to trace his error in exact terms, we shall not find it quite so easy
    as we had
    supposed. Perhaps the nearest we can get to expressing it is to
    say this: that his mind moves in a perfect but narrow circle.
    A small circle is quite as infinite as a large circle; but, though
    it is quite as infinite, it is not so large. In the same
    way the insane explanation is quite as complete as the sane one,
    but it is not so large.”

    To care about whether it “plays into the Left’s hand” if we tell the truth suggests that we are willing to conform “truth” for political purposes, which I am not. If a maniac were to start reading the stuff I’ve written about feminists and then commit a heinous atrocity, his madness is to blame, and not anything I’ve written.

    Certain strands of “black liberation” ideology are just plainly crazy, and this attracts crazy people, and CRAZY PEOPLE ARE DANGEROUS.

    I keep saying that, because it’s true. It’s like the Tucson massacre and Jared Loughner. He was into the “Zeitgeist” conspiracy. Most people who get into that crazy stuff never go on a murder rampage, but all of them are crazy to some extent. The problem in the 21st century is that the Internet allows dangerous craziness to flourish so extensively that we are swimming in a sea of insanity, never knowing when the next lunatic shark is going to bite us.

    Was Gavin Long any crazier than your typical Bernie Sanders voter? Not by much. The entire Democrat Party is to some extent insane.

    […] My conclusion that Baton Rouge gunman Gavin Long was “both racist and insane” drew some criticism from commenters who said that such a judgment “plays into the Left’s hands and provides it with deniability.” […]

    The problem is, using terms like “crazy” ignores the real issue which is the evil potential that exists in every human heart. That evil can be nurtured and the Left is adroit at doing so quite openly in order to further its nefarious ends. Further “crazy,” “insane,” and other such terms used in a non-clinical context makes them meaningless. I think people who like pineapple on pizza are “nuts,” but pineapple on pizza is not evil. Indoctrinating people in lies like we see from the Left regarding hierarchies of “oppression,” the stoking of imaginary grievances, and calls for violence is where the problem lies, not the fact that any single individual acts on it.

    Local news website uses this deceitful article title: “Former Marine kills 3 Baton Rouge officers, 3 others wounded”. Was he a Marine at some point, yes. But most recently he was a Black Activist!

    Oh look the obsessed troll is back I don’t have include those posts becuase they came from comments on this blog. Note the obsessive need to follow me around the net. Nice try but nothing there says I support the assination or the incitement to assinate law enforcement You think you can misconstrue what a statement meant and make it into something it is not. Folks here can read and reason they see you for the cretin you are.

    And let me repeat for “Nicole” and her side kick Katie Murphy Black Live Matter is a racists hate group that incites people to murder law enforment. That happens to be a FACT. If I’m a racist then so is Allan West and Erik Rush.

    Hey loser butch up and post under your REAL name I dare you!
