A year or so ago I wrote about a man who set himself on fire on the lawn facing the capitol. It was covered very briefly by the MSM then dropped immediately. His family issued a statement saying he was mentally ill and that was it. His message lost in a sea of capitalist, mammon worshiping loathing.

This past Saturday, another man took his life in front of the Capitol steps. With his little backpack and a rolling suitcase, he faced the building where our elected officials sell us out to the oligarchs of America everyday. He had taped a little sign with a timely message on it to his hand so it would remain long after he did. And then the despair the 1% and their accomplices in Washington have inflicted upon so many of us took it’s toll on him as he raised a gun to his head with his other hand and ended his life.

He was 22-years-old.

His name was Leo P. Thornton of Lincolnwood, Illinois but don’t look to any MSM outlets to find that tidbit of information. All you will find there are brief quips about a “radical leftist” making some “social justice” statement. All you will find there are piles and piles of comments railing about how the rich are taxed enough and if he wanted to do something, he should have started a business like the rich did or something to that effect.

Meanwhile the House is preparing a huge present for the wealthiest of the wealthy by finally ending the inheritance tax. The 1% of the 1% will be the only Americans who fall into that category since it only applies when someone’s estate is valued over 5 million dollars.

The Metropolitan Police Department identified Leo two days ago but refused to reveal what his sign said. They couldn’t even bring themselves to utter it in public. Were it not for independent journalism, no one would know Leo’s final message to the world.

But everyone knows “Dixon White’s” now don’t they? Leo’s was real. Leo’s was pertinent. “Dixon’s” (actor Jorge Moran) wasn’t either. His was one of divisiveness. Leo’s was of unity. “Dixon’s” was a calculated lie. Leo’s was as real as death itself and we all know it and we all feel it.

That’s why you don’t see Leo’s message anywhere in the MSM nor the alternative media for that matter.

Leo’s message was so offensive to the guardians of the elites, they had to dress up in bomb resistant clothing in order to sift through his meager possessions he had brought with him as if they were trying to protect themselves from the idea itself: Tax the 1%. So insulated, so secure in their protections from the radical ideas of “social justice”

'Tax the 1%': A police bomb squad officer inspects a suspicious package on the U.S. Capitol grounds. Witnesses say the man whose suicide put the Capitol briefly into lockdown was carrying a sign protesting the '1%'

I know. Every bag left unattended in DC has to be considered a bomb because God knows, since it’s our policy to bomb anyone who disagrees with our economic policies, we have to assume that EVERYONE thinks the same, pathological way our glorious leaders do.

But alas, once again, no bomb. Just a thought. An idea. And that of course is much, much worse.

To that end, the Washington Post spent a lot of time with “experts” telling us h.... Of course you have to be deranged to offer up your life for an ideal, right?

That is, unless you’re a heroic soldier going over to another country to fight for “freedom and democracy”

In that case your sacrifice makes you a hero and your story is splattered across the corporate media like a kid with the Measles right after his vaccination.

You see, Leo simply had the wrong idea. An idea about social justice. A dream about the possibility of upward mobility for all, not just those born rich to the oligarchs and robber barons of modern America.

The Washington Post article makes sure to let everyone know that it’s business as usual in D.C. The cherry blossoms are in full bloom and the tourists are taking selfies next to the fountain where Leo P. Thornton sent his final text.

They also are making sure no one follows his account. No one hears his despair. No one empathizes with a 22-year-old man who felt so deeply about the direction this country is going, he gave his life to call attention to it.

But I hear you Leo. Many of us do. And with or without the Vichy media outlets, many more will.

For those of you who don’t know him, his name was Leo P. Thornton of Lincolnwood, IL  and he was only 22-years-old. He didn’t have a bomb, he had an idea which is much more dangerous to the 1% and those that serve them.

The usury cabal who charges us for money that does not exist want to keep their little secrets and continue enslaving us.
