Family: Racism caused Conn. gunman to snap

Mass murderer Omar Thornton and his girlfriend, Kristi Hannah

By Nicholas Stix

The above headline, about black shooter Omar Thornton’s mass murder of eight whites and wounding of two others before killing himself in Manchester, Connecticut, is both completely false and completely true; completely false, because the “family” is claiming that white racism caused him to snap. Completely true, because Thornton’s own racism caused him to snap. (Please do not confuse with Omar Thornton with other alleged recent black mass murderers. I realize that it’s getting harder and harder to keep these stories straight.)

The “family” of the headline is false, either way, because it refers not to Thornton’s family, but to that of his white girlfriend, Kristi Hannah. (Or is this some sort of diversity redefinition thing, where you not only call someone a “spouse” who isn’t, but now call a group a “family,” which is nothing of the sort?)

Kristi Hannah's mother, Joanne

Yet relatives say Thornton, 34, finally cracked after suffering racial harassment in a company where he said he was singled out for being black in a predominantly white work force.

“Everybody’s got a breaking point,” said Joanne Hannah, the mother of Thornton’s longtime girlfriend.

According to the girlfriend’s mother, “Thornton had said he found a picture of a noose and a racial epithet written on a bathroom wall… Her daughter told her that Thornton’s supervisors said they would talk to his co-workers.”

Most whites or Asians who have worked at any job with extensive dealings with black colleagues or customers have had to constant, often violent racism. And yet, I never hear of any of them coming to work and blowing away blacks. (I said, “most whites or Asians,” because in such workplaces there is frequently a small number of white Uncle Toms and Aunt Jemimas who stay on the good side of the racist blacks by setting up their fellow whites for vicious abuse. Diversity trainers praise the white Uncle Toms and Aunt Jemimas as “allies,” and encourage their viciousness.)

Omar Thornton was a despicable thief and racist. He was caught on video stealing from the beer distributorship that employed him, but instead of being arrested, as the owners would likely have done to a white man they had caught stealing, the Hollander family that owned the distributorship apparently never even considered prosecuting Thornton. Indeed, so concerned were they about his delicate self-esteem that they gave him the option of resigning, rather than of being fired. He signed his resignation only seconds before beginning to murder his benefactors. Thornton, 34, went to the workplace armed with three guns, having planned on killing as many whites as he could.

A CBSTV news report mentioned that Thornton let some workers live, but gave no further explanation. Of course not, they were non-whites!

Thornton’s uncle, Will Holliday, said of Thornton’s telephone call home just before the latter killed himself, “He said, ‘I killed the five racists that was there that was bothering me.’ He said. “He said, ‘The cops are going to come in so I am going to take care of myself.’“

“Racists” is just a code for “whites.” But Thornton murdered eight whites and shot two other whites, as well. He was a liar, even in his last moments.

Apparently, when Thornton got caught stealing, he made up a story to sell his girlfriend and her family, and maybe even himself, that he was a hapless victim: He had encountered pictures of nooses, written racial epithets, and endured horrible racial harassment at work.

Union President Bryan Cirigliano must have been one of the “racists” Thornton was referring to. After all, Cirigliano was one of the first people Thornton murdered. Cirigliano’s “crimes”? Helping to get Thornton promoted to driver one year ago, and defending his rights at Tuesday morning’s meeting. But Thornton’s grieving white girlfriend, Kristi Hannah, is unbending in her fidelity to the “racism” narrative.

Like millions of other blacks in this country, Omar Thornton was in the grips of what I call black race mania. The more whites helped him, the hotter his racism burned.

In Missouri's 2008 Kirkwood massacre, a perpetual black traffic scofflaw who owed thousands of dollars in parking tickets, Charles “Cookie” Thornton, 52, murdered five whites, including two police officers and three city council members who had offered to forgive his traffic tickets, shot and wounded two other whites, and attempted to murder an eighth white, before police shot and killed him. As I said of that atrocity, You may not be interested in race war, but race war is interested in you.

I have a hunch what happened. After being hired, Thornton began stealing the company product. After being caught, he was asked to stop. Whereupon Thornton told "family and friends" that "racists" were after him at work.

The union kept Thornton from being fired. He kept stealing and was allegedly caught on video. Although it is very hard to fire a black from a unionized job, Thornton had evidently made it impossible to keep him on.

Thornton's "family and friends" eagerly called the victims "racists." The MSM gladly accepted Thornton's tale at face value. It fits the preferred narrative.

If the victims families continue suffer in silence, Thornton's version will be the accepted. It is like killing them twice.

Do you think he was on antidepressants before he shot up the place? Since he's under 40 years old and male, that could be the trouble, they shoot up and then kill themselves. Only women should be able to take them since our brains work differently.even though he was stealing the merchandise. Guys at the postoffice were doing the same thing before

Family: Racism caused Conn. gunman to snap

I was going to write up a big long post, but I thought James Burnham summed up this sort of situation nicely:

"Liberalism is the ideology of Western suicide."

The foregoing anecdotes are just that -- anecdotes. The Department of Justice, however, collects data on crime -- the Uniform Crime Reports,**** the National Crime Victimization Survey, ***** and so on. The author Jared Taylor ****** analyzed these figures and found that a black is 55 times as likely to attack a white than vice versa, 103 times as likely to rob, 40 times as likely to rape a white woman than a white man is to rape a black woman, and 237 times as likely to gang up on whites to rob them.


I think after reading this horrible account of man's inhumanity to man you will wonder, as I do, why this story was ignored by the Lamestream Media, and why has the issue of black racism and hate crimes against whites are not being addressed by the civil rights establishment of the federal government?

Do we now live in an Orwellian society where everyone is equal but some are more equal than others? This would certainly seem to be the case in America today where no insult, however minor, by a white towards a black goes unpunished, yet where gangs of drug addicted black thugs seem to believe they have an unquestioned right to rob, rape and murder whites.

If the legal theory today is that crimes against a person of a different race should be punished by more severe sanctions in federal court, then why are blacks never given these severe sanctions?

Hanging a noose in Connecticut is by itself considered a hate crime.

Had he wanted to sue the distributor, getting a lawyer to take the case, if real, would have been easy. He could have collected a handsome sum in damages.
No, I think the fiend just knew they had him cold and the his
poorly wired brain shorted out.

I guess this is one of those rare instances where I can agree with you. You are probably familiar with the black rage defense (implies that racism is so traumatic it will send someone over the edge). I had the unfortunate opportunity to listen to someone discuss it while defending Thorton.

Even if he was racially harrassed, that's no excuse to kill anyone.

I absolutley agree that racist abuse, assuming it happened, is no excuse for murder (subject only to qualifying as a provocation defence, which is very hard to prove and I'm not even sure if you have it in your legal system).

However, the rest of your nonsense about 'race war' is just stupid bigot fantasy. The actions of one person, or even ten people, are not representative of a race as a whole. Just because you are a racist for instance, hardly means all whites are racist.

I judge people for who they are and what they have done, not the colour of their skin. I'm glad Thornton's dead (though he deserved to suffer more) because he was a murdering scum, not because he was black.

Well, you're not completely a lost cause, Warren McIntosh. I just hope you don't have to learn the hard way how wrong you are about race war.
