We’re beginning to hear about Cho Seung-Hui’s suicide note:
A law enforcement official who read Cho’s note described it Tuesday as a typed, eight-page rant against rich kids and religion.
Gee, who preaches class envy and distrust of religion? I wonder…
So, all you liberal elitists and sanctimonious Europeans so ready to criticize Virginia and the U.S., take a long hard look at the drivel you’re spewing out into these young minds and see what it ultimately results in.
UPDATE: The Right-Wing Liberal has an excellent post up about the Left in Cho’s home country of South Korea and how it may have helped fuel this deranged individual’s hatred that led to this tragedy.
UPDATE 3: This nutjob went and mailed a “video manifesto” to NBC News in between crime sprees. Some “highlights” —
“Your Mercedes wasn’t enough, you brats. Your golden necklaces weren’t enough, you snobs. Your trust funds wasn’t enough. Your vodka and cognac wasn’t enough. All your debaucheries weren’t enough. Those weren’t enough to fulfill your hedonistic needs. You had everything.”
. . .
“You have vandalized my heart, raped my soul and torched my conscience. You thought it was one pathetic boy’s life you were extinguishing. Thanks to you, I die like Jesus Christ, to inspire generations of the weak and the defenseless people.”
Sounds like a cross between a Hugo Chavez and a John Edwards “Two Americas” speech.
UPDATE 4: The Ward View weighs in with I think Ben needs a nap.
