Besides his apparent erratic workplace demeanor, <Vester Lee> Flanagan seemed to have this mindset that he was besieged with racism at the workplace. Before his termination at WDBJ, co-workers said he thought the words “field” and “swinging” were racist. According to the Daily Mail, this is what prompted him to file a complaint in 2012 against then-intern Alison Parker, who he would eventually murder, for saying stuff like “‘swinging’ by an address,” or “going out into the ‘field.’” To no one’s surprise, Flanagan was described as “management’s worst nightmare.”
[Alison] Parker, who was referred to by her middle name as Bailey in the documents, was never disciplined for the remarks.But they appear to be the ‘racist’ comments Flanagan was referring to when he Tweeted in the aftermath of the deadly shooting.
Ryan Fuqua, a video editor at WDBJ, told The Post: ‘That’s how that guy’s mind worked. Just crazy, left-field assumptions like that.’
‘He was unstable. One time, after one of our live shots failed, he threw all his stuff down and ran into the woods for like 20 minutes.’
Trevor Fair, a 33-year-old cameraman at WDBJ, told the newspaper the words Parker used are commonplace but that they would routinely anger Flanagan.
We would say stuff like, “The reporter’s out in the field.” And he would look at us and say, “What are you saying, cotton fields? That’s racist”.’
‘We’d be like, “What?’ We all know what that means, but he took it as cotton fields, and therefore we’re all racists.’
The man who was news director during Vester Flanagan’s rocky tenure at Virginia station WDBJ-TV described him as someone who constantly saw himself being victimized by others.
Dan Dennison described Flanagan, who shot and killed a reporter and a cameraman on live television Wednesday, as a “professional victim” during his time at the station before being fired in 2013.
“He was victimized by everything and everyone and could never quite grasp the fact that he was the common denominator in all of these really sometimes serious interpersonal conflicts that he had with people,” Dennison said.
The article then went on to delve into other aspects of Flanagan’s work performance at the station, which was abysmal. He also exhibited a poor work ethic as well.
There are many Americans who get down on their luck. They may lose their jobs, face discrimination at work, and have legitimate anger as a result. Yet, they do not engage in cold-blooded murder. Only the mentally unstable engage in such behavior.
Or the product of the Liberal Media and Liberal education’s obsessions with everything being racist or bigoted, especially if you disagreed with their agenda.
After all, you speak out against Obama, you’re a racist.
Say anything against Gays, refuse them in any way for any reason, and you’re a bigot.
Everything on the left comes down to controlling people by labeling them as either racists or bigots for daring to oppose them, even on the most innocuous things.
Refuse to bake them a cake, they” take you to court and fine you $135,000 for “discrimination”.
Refuse to serve them a pizza and they’ll try and destroy everything about you.
A White cop shoots a black person, for any reason, he’s a racist.
“White Privilege” the new in-thing for the Progressive Liberal.
So pump this guy so full of the liberal shit and he exploded. Why am I not surprised that this should happen far more often than it does?
He was also censured for wearing an Obama sticker while recording a segment at a polling booth during the 2012 US Presidential Election – a clear breach of journalistic impartiality.
Considering the pimp job the Liberal Media in general was doing at the time that’s hardly worth mentioning.
The PC agenda encourages people to think that being mightily offended, or ‘triggered’ (I believe that is the current PC terminology) excuses any irrational behaviour.
So the Left primes the bomb and dares you to set it off, then blames YOU for setting it off!
The infinite fun of The Politically Correct.
