Domestic Terrorism in Knoxville

Photo from the News-Sentinel shows folks before the start of a candle light service at the outside Second Presbyterian Church Monday in response to the previous day’s shooting at the Unitarian Church next door.

The congregation of the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church was enjoying a children’s musical Sunday, when Jim David Adkisson allegedly attacked, murdering two and wounding six others. According to court records, he wanted to kill liberals “who are ruining the country.”

Hayes Hickman (contact form), Don Jacobs (contact form) of the Knoxville News-Sentinel reported on the results of a police search in their July 28 story, “Bill O’Reilly, Michael Savage, Sean Hannity on accused shooter’s reading list: 4-page letter outlines frustration, hatred of ‘liberal movement’ ” In addition to right-wing political books, they found

brass knuckles, empty shotgun shell boxes and a handgun.

If Mememorandum is accurate, I have where’s the coverage of this hate crime in the right wing media? There seems to be only Michele Malkin (quoting Confederate Yankee, who emphasized it was an attack on churchgoers, not liberals) and one oddball, I’ll not link to, who opined at Calvinists 4 Conservatism,

If he really hated liberals and gays, he would have gone to either a college campus or an Abercrombie & Fitch store, respectfully. However, he went to a church. This leads me to believe that the note about hating liberals and gays was forged, perhaps by some Marxist wanting attention.
