Assassination Attempt on Missouri Governor

If this seems like breaking news, it's because it wasn't reported by the liberal media when it was breaking news in September of last year. Missouri Governor Jay Nixon (D) survived an attempted assassination at the hands of 22 year-old Casey Brezik, not because of any injuries Nixon survived but because of a case of mistaken identity. Brezik actually did kill someone but it wasn't his intended target; it was someone he thought was Nixon.

Via Jack Cashill at American Thinker:
Successful propaganda is composed of equal parts deception and suppression, and the apparatchiks in the mainstream media are much better at the latter.

They may have erred in pushing the Arizona assassination attempt beyond its ideological limits last week, but they succeeded brilliantly a few months earlier in suppressing news of a nearly lethal attempt by a genuine leftist.

In September 2010 Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon was scheduled to speak at Penn Valley Community College in Kansas City.

At some point, wearing black clothes and a bullet-proof vest, 22 year-old Casey Brezik bolted out of a classroom, knife in hand, and slashed the throat of a dean. As he would later admit, he confused the dean with Nixon.
As Cashill pointed out, this attempt, unlike the one on Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D) was not used by the media as a chance to use political exploitation. But why? Nixon was a Democrat. The attempt on his life would have been a perfect chance to attack the Tea Party, right?

Well, not when you look at Brezik's profile. Cashill presents quite the liberal list of traits.
Brezik seems to have inhaled just about every noxious vapor in the left-wing miasma: environmental extremism, radical Islam, anti-capitalism, anti-Zionism and Christophobia, among others.

In his "About Me" box on Facebook, Brezik listed as his favorite quotation one from progressive poster boy, Che Guevara. The quote begins "Our every action is a battle cry against imperialism" and gets more belligerent from there.

On his wall postings, Brezik ranted, "How are we the radical(s) (left) to confront the NEW RIGHT, if we avoid confrontation all together?"
Even the left reaches a point where they think it's not expedient to pursue their absurd narratives.

UPDATE: Thanks to commenter Blair below, who rightly points out that the real victim of Brezik's attack - Al Dimmit, Jr. - was not killed. The verbiage in the American Thinker piece led me to believe he had been killed. HERE is another story from shortly after the incident that confirms Blair's post. That said, the lack of attention surrounding the attack is still noteworthy.

Read it all.

Al Dimmit Jr survived and has already been back at work for the Penn Vally Community College. So Casey Brezik didn't kill anyone. Charged with assault with a deadly weapon and attempted homicide.
