By now, most people have heard about Clay Duke entering a Panama City, FL school board meeting, painting a 'V' on the wall in red spray paint- which appears in the comic book and movie V for Vendetta- and opening fire on the board members before a security guard began exchanging shots with Duke- who ultimately died from what is believed to be a self-inflicted wound.
The video below is from a different angle and contains a little more interaction between Duke and the school board members than most videos going around. You really can't see all that much once the shooting begins. As said earlier, no one was killed except for Clay.
However, who was Clay Duke?
According to his Facebook profile, Duke lists his political views as "Freedom Fighter", religious views as "Humanism", and bought heavily into class warfare rhetoric. This is specified from some of the quotes within his profile, they read:
My Testament: Some people (the government sponsored media) will say I was evil, a monster (V)… no… I was just born poor in a country where the Wealthy manipulate, use, abuse, and economically enslave 95% of the population. Rich Republicans, Rich Democrats… same-same… rich… they take turns fleecing us… our few dollars… pyramiding the wealth for themselves. The 95%… the us, in US of A, are the neo slaves of the Global South. Our Masters, the Wealthy, do, as they like to us…
There’s class warfare, all right, but its my class, the rich class that’s making war and we’re winning”
- Warren Buffet
Here is a still-shot of the first part of his Facebook profile (click the image to englarge):
Below this section he has a series of websites that gives us a better understanding of who he is. Some of the links include The Progressive Mind , the liberal Media Matters , Crimes of the State, Wikileaks Mirrors, etc.

Of course, this is just information drawn from his Facebook page. However, going from this surface information alone, it looks as though Duke was a liberal who bought heavily into class warfare rhetoric and believed in a few conspiracy theories.
