"The worst problem America faces today is Liberalism"

Greg McKendry and Linda Kraeger, murdered by James Adkisson at the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church on 2008.06.28. R.I.P.

James David Adkisson, the right-wing nutjob who shot up the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church in Knoxville last July, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to life in prison. His four page suicide note / manifesto was published. The PDF is difficult to read, so I have transcribed it. Any errors are mine:
To whom it May concerN:

I guess you’re wondering why I did this.
Well let me explain in detail.
Over the years I’ve had some good jobs, but I always
got Layed off. Now I’m 58 years old + I can’t get
a decent job. I’m told I’m “overqualified,” which is a
code word for “too damned old.” Like I’m expected
to age gracefully into poverty. No thanks! I’m done.
I’ve always wondered why I was put on the earth.
For years I thought I was put here to die as cannon fodder
In VietNam but somehow cheated the devil out of it.
Lately I’ve been feeling helpless in our war on Terrorizm.
But I realized I could engage the terrorists allies
Here in America. The best allies they’ve got.
The Democrates! The democrates have done
everything they can do to tie our hands in this
War on Terror. They're all abunch of traitors.
They want America to loose this war for reasons
I can not understand. It makes me soooo mad!
In a parallel train of thought; It saddens me
to think back on all the bad things that Liberalism
has done to this country. The worst problem
America faces today is Liberalism. They have dumbed
down education, they have defined deviancy down.
Liberals have attack'd every major institution that
made America great. From the Boy Scouts to the
military; from education to Religion. The Major News
outlets have become the propaganda arm of the
Democrat Party. Liberals are evil, they embrace
the tenets of Karl Marx, they're Marxist,
socialist, communists.

The Unitarian Universalist Church

Don't let the word church Mislead you.
This isN't a church, it's a cult
They don't even believe in God.
They worship the God of Secularizm.
These sick people aren't Liberals; they're Ultra-Liberals.
This is a collection of sicko's, Weirdo's, + homo's
The UU church is the Fountainhead, the veritable
wellspring of anti-American organizatioNs
like Move, Code Pink, and other
un-American groups.
Those people are absolute Hypocrits.
They embrace very pervert that comes
down the piKe, but if they find out your a
conservative, they absolutely Hate you.
I Know, I experienced it.
I can't, for the life of Me, understand
why these people would embrace Marxism
like they do.
I'd like someone to do an exposé on
this church, it's a den of un-American Vipers.
They call themselves "Progressive." How is a white
woman having a niger baby progress? How is
a man sticking his dick up another man's ass progress?
It's an abomination.
It takes a warped Mind to hate America.
It Makes Me so angry! I can't live with it any More!
The environmental Nuts have to be stopped

Know This If Nothing Else

I This was a hate Crime:
I have the damn left-wing Liberals.
there is a vast left-wing conspiracy in this
country + these liberals are working together
to attack every decent + honorable institution
in the Nation, trying to turn this country into
a communist state. Shame on them.

II This was a Political Protest
Im protesting the liberal Supreme Court Justices
for give the terrorists at GITMO constitutional rights
Im protesting the major News outlets, ABC, NBC, CBS
CNN, PBS for being the propaganda wing of
the Democrat Party. It's criminal what they're
getting away with. They're traitors! They Must be stopped.
Im protesting the DNC running such a radical
leftist candidate. OSama Hussein OBama, yo Mama.
No experience, no brains, a joke. Dangerous
to America. Hell, he looks like Curious George!

III This was a Symbolic Killing
Who I wanted to Kill was every Democrat in the Senate,
+ House, the 100 people in Bernard Goldbergs book.
Id like to Kill everyone in the Main stream Media.
But I Know these people were inaccessible to Me.
I couldn't get to the generals + high ranking officers
of the Marxist Movement so I went after the
foot soldiers, the chickenshit liberals that vote in
these traitorous people. Some one had to get the ball
rolling. I volunteered. I hope others do the same, it's the
only way we can rid America of this cancer this pestilence!

In Conclusion:

No one gets out of this world alive so I've
chosen to skip the bad years of poverty. I know my
life is going down hill fast from here. The future
Looks bleak. Im sick + tired of being sick + Tired,
Im absolutely fed up!
So I thought I'd do something good for this Country
Kill Democrats 'til the cops Kill me.
If decent patriotic Americans could vote 3 times
in every election we couldn't stem this tide
of liberalism that's destroying America.
Liberals are a pest like termites. Millions of them.
Each little bite contributes to the downfall of
this great Nation. The only way we can
rid ourselves of this evil is Kill them in the
streets. Kill them where they gather.
I'd like to encourage other like minded people
to do what I've done. If life aint worth living anymore
don't just Kill yourself, do something for your country
before you go. Go Kill Liberals.
Tell that cop that Killed me that I said,
"Thanks, I Needed that!"

I have No Next of Kin, No living relatives.
If you would take My sorry carcass to
the body farm, or donate it to science,
or just throw Me in the Tennessee River.

This is what right-wing talk radio teaches.
This is what Hannity, Limbaugh, O'Reilly, Goldberg, Savage and their ilk want to happen to all of us "Ultra-Liberals".
A commenter at Orcinus, going by salvador dalai llama, apparently a member at TVUUC, said:

...As a member of TVUUC, I can say that I followed this blog for a while, thinking all the time, "Yeah, that's disturbing. But it can't *really* happen here."

First, they came for... Turns out, first, they came for me.

Well, that's not entirely true. There's been a whole submerged history of who they came for first. But this one was pretty dramatic. Suffice it to say, I'm a bit more alive to this as a serious problem that needs to be addressed. Eliminationist rhetoric is a real issue, and the concerns raised aren't alarmism. I speak from sad experience on this point.

In the spirit of "I'm a drag queen", we should all get T-Shirts that say:

First, they came for...
Turns out, first, they came for me
