Virginia: the culture of complaint turns lethal

Had Vester Lee Flanagan carried out the killing of two ex-colleagues at Virginia TV station WDBJ 10 years ago, it might have been dismissed as just another case of a disgruntled former employee ‘going postal’ – a phrase referencing several incidents from the mid-1980s onwards involving United States Postal Service (USPS) workers shooting and killing fellow workers. But the fact that Flanagan’s shooting of Alison Parker and Adam Ward was filmed, in a world dominated by YouTube and Facebook, ensured the story gained global coverage.

  • Gary

    He is Black and gay while he also chose to target a women which makes him a heterophobic anti-white racist misogynist .

    he had a rainbow flag on his wall at home , time to ban those flag in public.

  • Everyone Else

    The oxygen that enables the “culture of complaint” is the “culture of compensation for grievance”.

    I think we should revisit those going postal cases.
    Maybe there was more to them than we were told by the pre internet media.

    • lolwut?

      Wouldn’t doubt it.

      Just like that Marc Lépine and École Polytechnique thing.

      Lepine also known as Gamil Rodrigue Liass Gharbi a Muslim
      which of course details of which never saw the light of day back then
      and only later on obscure websites long after it was forgotten

        And it hasn’t been forgotten.
        They memorialize it every year with fresh calls for gun control.

        • Raymond Cameron

          But never a call for muslim control…

          • ShlomoShunn

            Because there’s never been a Jewish mafia, AIPAC, or Israeli murders of Arabs.

            Just like Christians never killed other Christians in Europe, created the Holocaust, founded the Inquistion, started Expulsions, or mounted Crusades. And it’s not like there were any flies on those two stellar Catholics…Goebbels and Hitler.

            So sure, let’s do something novel in history: demonize another group en masse as “the other.”

  • Maurixio Garciasanchez

    Those terrible acts are home grown terrorists.

  • El Martyachi

    It (what’s loosely described here as the culture of complaint) was fittingly named agitation elsewhere.

  • ShlomoShunn

    Vester-the-Pederater dindu nuffins raysiss. He jes’ committed homo-cide against privileged whites.
