He was a terrorist, despite the media’s unwillingness to call him one.
Oh and just FYI, there’s a big troll push by 4chan to pretend this guy was an Obama supporter and Democrat. He wasn’t.
9:45 a.m. update: In 2012, when he was 17 years old, Austin bombing suspect Mark A. Conditt laid out his political views in a series of blog posts he wrote for an Austin Community College course on U.S. government.
In the posts, Conditt takes conservative stances on a variety of issues. He wrote that he was against gay marriage and abortion and in favor of the death penalty.
On abortion, he wrote: “First, if a women does not want a baby, or is incapable of taking care of one, she should not participate in activities that were made for that reason. Second, if we are going to give women free abortions, why not give men free condoms, or the like? Is it not up to the couple to take these preventive measures?”
Arguing against gay marriage, he wrote that homosexuality is “not natural.”
“Just look at the male and female bodies. They are obviously designed to couple. The natural design is apparent. It is not natural to couple male with male and female with female. It would be like trying to fit two screws together and to nuts together and then say, “See, it’s natural for them to go together.”
On the death penalty, he wrote, “Living criminals harm and murder, again - executed ones do not.”
In a brief bio, Conditt wrote that he is not politically inclined but views himself as a conservative.
Conservative men - they want full control over other people. That’s why they see no hypocrisy in being anti-choice and pro-death penalty.
Edit: Maybe this is controversial to say, but I think his parents should face charges. They helped radicalize him.
Edit 2: A link to his blog. And shocker, he also thinks there shouldn’t be a sex offender registry.
