Like many other news organizations, the Associated Press today is reprinting excerpts from the online diary kept by George Sodini, who killed three women and then himself at a Pittsburgh area fitness center last night. The diary focuses on his severe problems with women (surely his biggest motivator in the slayings) and other worries related to family and layoffs. But it also includes comments about the "liberal media," the "Obama economy" -- and it opens with remarks about last fall's election, the election of "The Black Man" and jokes about black men bedding white women.

All of this was left out of the AP excerpts and nearly everywhere else, including a new New York Times account.

Interestingly, at this afternoon's press conference, the local police chief was asked about any racial aspect to the shooting. He denied it but some may have wondered why the question even arose (the shooter and all victims were white).

In addition, I have located, with some digging, a March 13, 1994 Web posting by Sodini at a Whitewater news group which reads in full:

I got a bumper sticker that reads: "Stop Socialism Impeach Clinton" from an ad in National Review magazine. There are many neat buttons and stickers and things advertised in those conservative magazines. George

Two weeks later after posting at an "alt.clinton.politics" forum he signed off with another pro-impeachment message: "Gore in '94."

And on Sept. 9, 1995, he posted on a "activism.militia" newsgroup the following:

I am convinced that more drastic action is required to bring the country back to the Constitutional order that it was 200 years ago. I don't think any group of political leaders will achieve this for us.

Sodini's Web page, with the diary, has now been removed from the Web. Ironically, at the bottom of his page he had urged that it never be removed and, in fact, spread widely. His final statement there was "Death Lives!"

Here was the first entry, which explains his early desire to "exit" and take a few people with him, but deciding to stick around until past last November's election -- and his sarcastic remarks about Obama. Later in the diary he complains about the 'Obama economy.'

Planned to do this in the summer but figure to stick around to see the election outcome. This particular one got so much attention and I was just curious. Not like I give a flying fuck who won, since this exit plan was already planned. Good luck to Obama! He will be successful. The liberal media LOVES him.

Amerika has chosen The Black Man. Good! In light of this I got ideas outside of Obama's plans for the economy and such. Here it is: Every black man should get a young white girl hoe to hone up on. Kinda a reverse indentured servitude thing. Long ago, many a older white male landowner had a young Negro wench girl for his desires. Bout' time tables are turned on that shit. Besides, dem young white hoez dig da bruthrs! LOL. More so than they dig the white dudes!

Every daddy know when he sends his little girl to college, she be bangin a bruthr real good. I saw it. "Not my little girl", daddy says! (Yeah right!!) Black dudes have thier choice of best white hoez. You do the math, there are enough young white so all the brothers can each have one for 3 or 6 months or so.

From July 20, 2009:

Been a long time since last write. Everything still sucks. But I got a promotion and a raise, even in this shitty Obama ecomomy. No more grunt programming. Go figure!

UPDATE: Police chief also noted today that killer used extra long clips for bullets, once illegal under assault weapons ban, overturned in 2004. He had four handguns on him when he died (he was dressed all in black, including a black headband). Police searched his home and found four rifles and shotguns.
