What is believed to be the manifesto of the recent NY bomber has surfaced as a blog post. According to this blog, this bomb was only a test and there will be more to come.
The irony of it all is that the bomber claims this was all to help the LGBTQ community. He said “‘I cannot live in a world where homosexuals like myself as well as the rest of the LGBTQ+ community are looked down upon by society.’
Unfortunately, he placed the bomb in a community that has the highest gay population.
Daily Mail has the full story:
An individual claiming to the be ‘the NY bomber’ announced on a blog that they had bombed Manhattan Saturday in response to ‘LGBTQ+ oppression’ and that more bombs would follow.
‘I don’t know exactly how I feel about taking human lives,’ begins a post titled ‘Taking a human life.’ ‘However, what I do know is that if I don’t do what needs to be done nobody will pay attention.’
The now deleted Tumblr account says that LGBTQ people are more likely to commit suicide, but that ‘nobody cares’ – so the self-styled bomber is now ‘lashing out’.
Device: Two devices were found in Chelsea. This, the second unexploded device, is made from a pressure cooker. The blogger says these were just tests and that more bombs would follow
Injuries: The detonation, which went off near this metal box, injured 29 people. The blogger says they ‘cannot stand society’ because ‘homosexuals like myself’ are ‘looked down upon’
It asks ‘what if people from the LGBTQ+ community started lashing out in response to the violence and oppression we face with violence and possibly oppression?
‘I’m sure that would give people a reason to not stand by while so many people are being oppressed.
‘I suppose I’m just going to have to move forward knowing that what I am doing had a purpose and will in fact make a difference.
‘I’ll keep you all posted,’ it concludes.
Investigators are ‘vetting’ the Tumblr page, NY Post reported.
If the manifesto is legitimate then the bomber chose a poor place for their tests; New York has one of the highest proportions of openly gay people in the US.
And according to a 2011 Huffington Post report, the majority of New York’s gay population is clustered around the west side of Manhattan, with Chelsea firmly in the center.
In fact, that site said, The area between 6th and 8th Avenues, from West 18th to 22nd Streets, has the highest percentage of all, at 22 per cent.
The first explosion occurred on the corner of West 23rd Street and 6th Avenue, directly next to that area.
THE ‘NY BOMBER MANIFESTO’ IN FULL
Taking a human life
I don’t know exactly how I feel about taking human lives.
However, what I do know is that If I don’t do what needs to be done nobody will pay attention. LGBTQ+ people are much more likely to commit suicide than straight cisgendered people.
It seems that nobody cares, however what if people from the LGBTQ+ community started lashing out in response to the violence and oppression we face with violence and possibly oppression?
I’m sure that would give people a reason to not stand by while so many people are being oppressed. I suppose I’m just going to have to move forward knowing that what I am doing had a purpose and will in fact make a difference. I’ll keep you all posted.
Manufacturing Test Explosives
Hi. You probably have all seen the news by now, the explosives detonated in New York City, that was me. Those were just some tests, I know where I have made errors and I will not make the same mistake next time.
I did it because I cannot stand society. I cannot live in a world where homosexuals like myself as well as the rest of the LGBTQ+ community are looked down upon by society.
It is 2016 and we are still being viewed as mentally ill, sinners, attention seekers, and just plain weirdos in general. I am not going to stand by while under classed and underprivileged people are oppressed.
I am not going to stand by while there is inequality in my country such as the racism being seen in white police officers all over the country.
I am not going to live in a country where it is OK to have a misogynist, xenophobic, racist Islamophobic, republican candidate running for President of The United States!
That’s implying that republicans in general should even be taken seriously as they are all cisgendered privileged white people.
This is not the end, this is just the beginning. I will be remembered. I will make a difference. I will eliminate my targets before it is too late.
