Vester Flanagan Threatened Coworkers, Played the Race Card for Years

Vester Lee Flanagan claimed in a suicide note Wednesday that June’s massacre of black parishioners at a South Carolina church was “the tipping point” that sent him on the path to murdering two journalists on live television Wednesday.

But in court papers and interviews with The Daily Beast, former colleagues describe Flanagan as a problematic employee, who was repeatedly reprimanded for his harsh treatment of coworkers, and complained that racism was behind harsh evaluations of his work.

“He just had a history of playing the race card,” former WTWC anchor Dave Leval told The Daily Beast. “I know he did that in Tallahassee a couple of times…”

  • Assuming he WASN’T mentally ill, he, no doubt, has been told that he was a special snowflake and those who disagreed were bigots. Breeding this kind of paranoia and sense of entitlement is asking one to shoot up a crowd.

    • He seems the ideal product of the leftist American education system.

      • Isn’t it reassuring to know that there are more just like him?

          Let’s keep in mind that Mr. Flanagan was part of Obama’s core constituency.

      He’s got fag written all over him.

      • With that jacket, maybe.

        • mobuyus

          Definitely anti good looking woman.

          • He acted as any good community organiser would: snapped in anger over everything.

      A brown snowflake?

      So when non-whites and Muslims murder people it’s from a Mental Illness???
      But the Chapel Hill shootings was Racism and a Hate-crime since three muslims died???

      Nice loopholes that Obama has created for his street thugs.

      • I think people prefer these loopholes rather than accept the plain truth that people are responsible for what they do.

    Are we supposed to be surprised

    Never hire blacks. You will always regret it.

    • Gary

      The only thing missing is being a muslim on top of being Black and gay.

      But Obama has a problem on his hand because he’s quick to assign racism when a white person kills a muslim or a non-white , he was fast to opine on the Chapel Hill death of 3 Folks that provoked Mr. Hicks to shoot them for being annoying pricks……but because the three were also muslim pricks is was hijacked by CAIR as a hate-crime ( as if a killer murders people from love) .

      • I’ve seen posts somewhere according to which he was related to a Muslim woman or something.

  • mobuyus

    What, another of obama’s fuckin sons?

  • Horrible murderer, taking lives worth much more than his.
