Why assassination attempt goes unreported

On Tuesday of this week, 22 year-old Casey Brezik waited in the computer lab of Penn Valley Community College in Kansas City where Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon was scheduled to speak.

At some point, as various dignitaries gathered outside the lab, an anxious Brezik, wearing black clothes and a bullet-proof vest, bolted out of the lab, knife in hand.

Brezik approached Associate Vice Chancellor Tom Vansaghi, a youngish, dark-haired administrator, and said, "No, you're not the one I want."

Brezik then ran past Vansaghi and lit on Al Dimmitt Jr., an older, graying dean, slashing his throat before being subdued. Dimmitt required immediate surgery and remains in stable condition.

Although Dimmitt looks vaguely like the governor, it seems more likely that Brezik attacked the dean because he thought he had alerted security. Regardless, his ultimate target seems to have been Nixon. When informed while en route to the college, Nixon canceled his plans.

The Kansas City Star gave the story prominent coverage under the headline, "Man described as anarchist is charged in attack on Penn Valley dean." Brezik is described at one point as a "radical," but whether left or right is left uncertain. Nixon, by the way, is a fairly conservative Democrat.

All too predictably, the Associated Press article strips all politics out of the story, headlined, "Man charged in stabbing at Kansas City college."

AP reporter John Hanna surely perused Brezik's Facebook page, which may explain why the AP and other media have chosen to neuter the story. Politics were at the very core of Brezik's being.

Brezik, in fact, seems to have absorbed just about every animus in the left-wing ether: environmental extremism, radical Islam, anti-capitalism, anti-Zionism and Christophobia, among others.

In his "About Me" box, Brezik lists as his favorite quotation one from progressive poster boy, Che Guevara. The quote begins "Our every action is a battle cry against imperialism" and gets more belligerent from there.

(Column continues below)




On his wall postings, Brezik, who appears biracial, rants as follows (all punctuation as posted):

"Enslaved since they brought us over on their ships. Hear me roar."
"Damn it feels good to be a gangsta."

"Everyone knows oil mongers are fueled by greed. FACT: If this oil were not in our oceans it would be in our air."

"How are we the radical(s) (left) to confront the NEW RIGHT, if we avoid confrontation all together?"

The highlight of his progressive adventures appears to have been his sortie to Toronto in June to protest the G20 Summit. An active champion of "revolution," Brezik got a taste of it and was highly pleased with himself.

"Crossed the security fence," he wrote. "Ran from the cops. Was tackled. Spit on an officer. Was arrested, charged, and deported. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED."

This posting netted him some favorable attention from a like-minded female fan, "rock it. you are an inspiration to us. can't wait to hear stories."

In the last few weeks, like many on the left, Brezik seems to have found religion. This had not been obvious in his earlier postings. When, for instance, a 62-foot high statue of Jesus was destroyed by lightning in Ohio, Berzik's response was, "A smitten idol if I've ever seen one. It's nicknamed touchdown jesus for cryin out loud. Hahahahahaha."

The religion to whose defense he rallied, of course, was Islam. In reference to an article about Terry Jones and his proposed Quran burning, Brezik posted on Monday, the day before his planned assault, "This is now a Holy war. Scriptures have been desecrated. War U can't handle. Make a choice and quick."

No doubt, Brezik is something of a whack job, but the various rages that he acquired –culminating in Sudden Jihadi Syndrome – are those to which our students are exposed on a daily basis.

Two weeks ago, comparable demons drove "environmental activist" James Lee to storm the headquarters of the Discovery Broadcasting Channel. His inspiration too went largely unexamined.

Had Lee or Brezik been tea-party people, we know the hell that would have rained down on that movement. But the movement is not the breeding ground for violence that the left wishes it to be.

For the last century or more, it is the progressive fever swamps that have nurtured most of the world's hate and virtually all of its violence, including, paradoxically, radical Islam.

As Casey Berzik says with multicultural flair, "El Futuro es La REVOLUCION!"

Police: Nixon was target of stabbing by former Springfield man
The Associated Press • September 16, 2010

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Police say a man accused of stabbing a Kansas City college official had intended to attack Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon.


Kansas City police spokesman Darin Snapp said Thursday that Casey Brezik told police he wanted to attack the governor because he was a top government official.

Snapp says that when detectives told him he had actually stabbed a dean at Penn Valley Community college, Brezik appeared upset about getting the wrong person.


Brezik, of Raytown, faces two counts of first-degree assault and armed criminal action. A judge has entered a not guilty plea on his behalf.


The attack Tuesday occurred shortly before Nixon was to speak at the college. Nixon had not yet arrived and the event was canceled.

I'm just surprised our wonderful media didn't find a way to imply this guy was a tea partier.

Why assassination attempt goes unreported

Unreported?

The story ran on the front page of the KC Star. It doesn't sound like it went "unreported" to me.

I know it was reported but it seemed to have faded off the front page pretty quick here in Springfield and from what I've seen nationally. A guy is planning to attempt to kill a Gov. and he possibly could be according to this guy listed above, an Islamic Radical. That story I would think would draw much more attention than just a day or two and then just fade away to the middle of the paper or be listed as a secondary new link on a webpage. JMO though....

Maybe we should see this for what it probably is before we get too deep into the Islamic Radical under current. A quick google search on the guy came up with an article that had some details about prior mental health hospitalizations, paranoid schizophrenia, delusional anti government rants, etc. Could it be that this guy was really just crazier than a shithouse rat and there really is no other motive? I would consider it a distinct possibility...

Like I said I wasn't sure on my end, but was just curious if anyone in the media was doing any real research into this or if it was getting the Fort Hood treatment.
