Elizabeth LeCron: Too crazy for Tumblr.

Have I ever mentioned that crazy people are dangerous? Pretty sure I have mentioned this a few times, for example Kentucky gunman Gregory Allen Bush, Cornell University student Saano Murembya, transgender activist “Gwynevere River Song” and psycho gamer David Katz, not to mention the now-incarcerated Deborah Frisch.

The latest proof that crazy people are dangerous (as if further proof were needed), involves a girl so crazy she got banned from Tumblr:

A Toledo woman was arrested and charged in federal court after she purchased black powder and screws that she believed were going to be used to make a pipe bomb as part of an attack on an “upscale” Toledo, Ohio restaurant, prosecutors said.
Elizabeth “Bee” Ridge LeCron, 23, was charged with one count of transportation of explosives and explosive material for the purposes of harming others and property.
Federal officials said she “explicitly stated (a) desire to engage in acts of death and destruction.”
LeCron was part of the true crime community on Tumblr. Her page is shadow-banned to Tumblr users but is visible to non-users. For now.
LeCron, of Maumee and Toledo, Ohio, was vocal on her Tumblr account and frequently posted images having to do with mass murder, school shootings and, in particular, she was a fan of white supremacist and convicted mass murderer Dylann Roof. . . .
According to an affidavit filed in the case, LeCron came to the attention of law enforcement in June when a friend told authorities they were concerned when LeCron and her boyfriend Vincent Armstong “expressed a desire to conduct a violent attack.” But it was more than a desire as she already had an arsenal, court records show. Months after the feds were first on to LeCron, a search warrant found she had an AK-47 a shotgun a number of handguns large quantity of ammunition and a plastic shopping bag containing numerous end caps which can be used in the manufacturing of pipe bombs.
From the beginning, investigators were shocked by the “frequently posted voluminous photographs and comments on social media glorifying mass murderers, including the Columbine shooters and Dylann Roof.”
After her Tumblr account ‘ligaturemarkings’ was shut down because of offensive content, LeCron started a new profile, CharlestonChurchMiracle, where she continued to post photos and comments about mass casualty attacks, the second account an apparent homage to Roof. On this page, as was the case with her first page, she reblogged frequent disturbing posts about mass murders, serial killers, school shooters including the Columbine killers and of late, Nickolas Cruz, the accused Parkland shooter. But the posts were not just re-blogs, rather appeared a call to action, feds say.
Court records and her Tumblr pages show the seriousness with which the platform took her commentary – they shut her page down – but also even people on Tumblr from the True Crime community who said she was “disturbed.” . . .

(Whoa! If even losers in the deranged online cesspool of Tumblr think you’re “disturbed,” you must be dangerously crazy.)

In August, undercover FBI agents and confidential sources began communicating with LeCron as presumed allies. She told undercover agents that she had devised a plan to commit an ‘upscale mass murder’ at a Toledo bar. . . .
Meanwhile, she and her friend, who was working with feds by that time, flew to Denver to visit Columbine High School. LeCron and Armstrong also had copiously filed journals with myriad details about plans for mass murder . . .
Still, in August of 2018, an undercover agent contacted her through her Tumblr and it was then that LeCron stated she wanted to meet other anarchists in order to form a team. She stated she wanted to damage a livestock farm to set livestock free. She later confirmed she was willing to sabotage anything that harms the environment.
A week later, on August 28, she reiterated she wanted to attack a farm that raises pigs or cows. . . .
In September, Lecron met with undercover FBI agents and stated she and an associate started to make a pipe bomb. She stated she “definitely want(ed) to make a statement up here” and thought the place where she worked could be a good target because she believed they were polluting the river behind the plant. . . .
On December 8, LeCron met with a source at a retail sporting good stores, where she entered the store by herself and purchased two pounds of Hodgson Triple Seven Muzzleloading Propellant. She then went to a larger retailer in Perrysburg, where she purchased 665 screws of various sizes, some as large as three inches. . . .
LeCron is a ‘furry,’ a fandom subculture into anthropomorphic animal characters with human personalities and characteristics. She also has artwork on a site called Deviant Art.

OK, this is like the trifecta of 21st-century craziness:

  1. Tumblr blog? Check.
  2. “Furry”? Check.
  3. Posting crappy weird drawings on Deviant Art? Check.

Look, I understand there are people with actual talent who post their work to Deviant Art, but there is also a lot of no-talent crap, less impressive than the cartoons I drew in fifth grade. When you combine this with having a Tumblr blog and being a “furry”? That’s a level of craziness that requires Thorazine and institutionalization.

Did I mention she was a Bernie Sanders supporter? And has weird hair? All she’d need to do is to add “nonbinary genderqueer” to her profile, and she’d be the very model of the SJW Tumblrina. Such people used to be locked up in lunatic asylums, but the psychiatric profession is controlled by liberals, so they turned all the kooks loose, permitting them to post their crazy rants on Tumblr and, also, vote Democrat.

Or that’s my theory, anyway. You got a better one? No, I didn’t think so.

Until about 15 years ago, people babbling lunatic gibberish were recognized as crazy. The disheveled guy mumbling to himself on the bus, the crazy-eyed woman who accosted you on the sidewalk to bum some change — you knew these people were a few fries short of a Happy Meal. If they started ranting about the Illuminati or the New World Order or some other wacko conspiracy theory, you just kind of nodded and smiled and made an excuse why you were in a hurry to go catch a plane or something. “Have a nice day,” you’d say, and then make a swift exit. But that was before the invention of online social media.

Now, instead of mumbling to themselves on the bus, the kooks stay home, collecting disability payments and finding a ready-made audience for their craziness among the crowds of other kooks on sites like Tumblr. Remember how federal disability payments mysteriously increased during the Obama administration? Remember the soaring percentages of young women diagnosed with anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, borderline personality, etc? Do you think that was just a coincidence? And are you savvy enough to connect the dots to the proliferation of SJW “activist” types promoting left-wing ideas on social media?

Lunatics are our new Leisure Class, supported by a combination of disability payments, student loans, parental largesse and Patreon. They are disconnected from reality — I mean, Bernie Sanders for President? — and view the real world as a place of systemic oppression, in which they are victims and you, the normal working person trying to pay your bills and take care of your family, are the oppressor.

Because these lunatics have proliferated at such a fantastic rate in the past decade, they are overwhelming our society’s defense mechanisms. Like, how are you supposed to tell which of the wild-eyed, purple-haired, tattoo-covered freaks is a real threat, when you routinely encounter dozens of such weirdos at your local shopping mall?

Once you start paying attention to this phenomenon, you notice that the clerk at the convenience store has an undercut hairstyle and gauged ears, and the girl taking your order at Burger King has a tattoo on her neck and a menacing glare. The crazies are everywhere now, not just in Berkeley and the East Village. So here’s this girl in Toledo spending all her time online raving about mass murder and, fortunately, somebody reported her to the FBI. Did I mention she had a boyfriend? Yeah, you know this dude’s a real winner:

The boyfriend of an Ohio woman who allegedly worshipped mass murderers like Dylann Roof and plotted a massacre was charged Wednesday with lying to the FBI, authorities said.
A criminal complaint says Vincent Armstrong, 23, initially told investigators that he and girlfriend Elizabeth Lecron, 23, were “role-playing” when they talked about killing people — but later admitted it had “crossed over” from fantasy to reality and had started prepping for an attack.
She and Armstrong also wrote about their urge to carry out violent attacks in disturbing journal entries seized by the feds and on their Tumblr accounts.
“Around 5 a.m., I called [Subject-1],” Lecron wrote in May, referring to Armstrong. “He told me he felt homicidal. He had followed a car, wanting to murder. Didn’t happen but it worried me. I just told him ‘soon.’”
A few weeks later, Armstrong wrote that he was haunted by “a vision to kill.”
“To hunt the unwilling. These peasants to society. The hatred toward the human race is bewildering,” he wrote. “It makes me feel good to know I will end it all. Very soon. I am buying a knife this weekend to slay my pray [sic].”


He’s into tattoos and “described himself as a vegan and a poet.”

Here you have two 23-year-old psychos with nothing in common but “hatred toward the human race” and how are they paying their rent? How is it they have infinite leisure time to write “disturbing journal entries” and Internet paeans to mass murderers? Even if you were a disgruntled misanthrope with a generalized contempt for your fellow citizens, you wouldn’t have time to brood about it, because you’ve got a job and other adult responsibilities to keep you busy, whereas these young lunatics have nothing else to do all day except share their hatred of “peasants” like you, who might be gunned down in one of the random and meaningless slaughters such wackos usually commit.
