Rest in Peace, Ronbo (UPDATE: POSSIBLE HOAX)

**UPDATE 2/27: This may have been a hoax. (Thanks uspace)**

Blogger Ronald Barbour, AKA Ronbo, has apparently committed suicide.

Coverage from Flopping Aces.

Ronbo's final post:
I understand the ______ building is more than 150 feet tall. At the time of my last recon I noticed easy access to the roof that would allow someone to leap to their death to the parking lot below. I'm not an expert in these matters, but if I recall from my physics classes in college at 100 feet a falling object reaches a speed of about 100 MPH. This means that the falling man would hit the pavement at a speed great enough to cause instant death. I understand that over the years since the construction of this building several persons have died by jumping from this structure.

I plan to make such a leap. I do this in memory of the several hundred victims on 9/11 who jumped off the World Trade Center as a means of avoiding burning to death, and the over 3,000 American soldiers killed fighting Islamofascism in Iraq and Afghanistan. A parallel reason is a protest against the American Left and the Democrat Party who have stabbed the Armed Forces in the back in the early stages of what is shaping up to be The Third World War.

This is an excellent time to make a final statement - a dying declaration - about an event that resulted in my life being ruined. This is my imprisonment for an attempt on the life of President Clinton in 1994. In truth I made no such attempt and I was convicted on the basis of lies told to the court by the U.S. Secret Service and an edited audiotape. I have no way of knowing the dynamics behind my conviction, but I suspect that it was done on the basis of personal advancement and political reasons on the part of certain individuals in the District Federal Court and Secret Service. In addition I would not rule out Bill or Hillary Clinton being personally involved in my case based on their well known records of revenge against their opponents.

I have no doubt the Leftist Media will spin my death as that of an insane man with few options left in life who killed himself in desperation. In fact, the objective investigator will notice no signs of depression on my part the last months of my life. I would describe myself as an idealist. I know this is a personality strange to many people who would say such a person is "unusual" or "crazy" or "a bit off." The fact of the matter is that the actions of many people that were described as heroic happened because they were idealists who chose death rather than selling out what they hold to be sacred. In my case I cannot allow myself to continue to live in a world that is largely indifferent to a neo-pagan religion called Islam that in league with Leftist appeasement and multiculturalism, and seems on the fast track to destroy the United States and Western Civilization.

What I did is not suicide. It is the action of a patriot and idealist who loves God and Country, and who makes a very public statement as a warning of a New Dark Age that looks America straight in the face armed with a hideous ideology that makes the German Nazis or Russian Communists look like bleeding heart liberals. I hope my fellow Countrymen will rally once gain in the defense of liberty no matter how long and hard the struggle.

In this life or death struggle between civilizations it would be a critical mistake to limit our attentions to the plight of isolated individuals whom Islamic militants have threatened with death: the sort of mistake that leads to a "law-enforcement" attitude toward Islam-powered violence. The Qur'an commands Muslims to impose themselves on the whole world, by any means expedient. Muhammad's recorded history and sayings reinforce that command. Islamic militants believe that God and His Prophet have commanded them to erect a totalitarian, world-girdling Islamic state. If the last few years have taught us anything, it's that there are enough adequately motivated Muslims in any of the countries of Europe to reduce those countries to chaos or shari'a, as long as Islamic militancy is regarded as a law-enforcement issue...which means, as long as Islam is welcomed in the nations of the West.

This cannot be a law-enforcement issue. It must become a war issue.

Muslims as individuals might well be overwhelmingly inclined toward peace and amicable relations with non-Muslims, though, given the sanctification by Islam of taqiyya and kitman, one can never be perfectly sure. But Islam the ideology is inherently and openly at war with any nation that refuses it. Barring extraordinary good fortune such as America had with the Fort Dix Six, militant Islam's "active agents" cannot reliably be seined from their concealment until they've struck. To allow them to roam among us yet safeguard ourselves from them proactively, we would have to erect a totalitarianism that would make Oceania in 1984 look like a kindergarten class picnic.

We must accept that we're on a war footing, and do what a people at war must do to survive: expel our putative enemies from among us and confine them where they can do us no further harm. Europe's policy has been the reverse. India's policy has been inanition. America's policy defies elucidation. This cannot continue if we wish to survive as free men.

Quarantine or genocide. There are no other options.

God bless Ron, wherever he is. I'm very sorry for your loss in this, and for the super-sad feelings of mourning that we have had about this. But, there are questions. It may be that he is just "Ronbo Goes On Patrol". Either way, he will always live on in the hearts and minds of his family, friends and fans. Let's keep hope alive.

This author at Wizbang Blog has asked an Orlando Sentinel Journalist to look into this.

The final 200-plus words of this post were plagiarized -- from me. Also, the gentleman who wrote this "suicide note" is apparently still alive and well.

I know Ronbo well by way of EMails and the Blogsphere over the last several years.

My opinion is that the operative words are "I plan..."

As is well known plans change.

So Ronbo may have decided not to go thru with his planned suicide at this time for any number of reasons...For example, children...

Let us say for the sake of an argument that Ronbo had planned a very public suicide at the Contemporary Hotel at Disney (which is about 150 feet tall and easy to jump from and complete hundreds of camera/video heavy tourists, I know I stayed there in 1971)-- He would have received the Press he wanted for his cause, but would have been judged a horrible person for allowing scores of children to view his death.

So....perhaps he simply postponed the grand event for a better venue and published this article by way of an announcement of a coming event, in militaryese, "Preparing the ground for a combat assault."

Oh...About the address in Orlando (If indeed Ronbo really lives in Orlando) -- This is a little joke of his on his opposition. He told me that the 5201 Raymond Street address which is the Orlando VA clinic was chosen by him to give himself cover (Ronald Barbour really is his name), if anyone came looking for him with violent intend.

I actually had a friend in Florida MMV to run check on Ronbo's Driver License address and it indeed came out 5201 Raymond Street, Orlando. This proves nothing said my friend because Florida MMV will put ANY address on a license without checking.

My best guess is that he's still alive somewhere, but is waiting for a particular date...like March 15th -- The Ides of March.

Either that or you copied it from one of his posts...I'm sure when The New York Times prints Ronbo's suicide note, you'll be given full credit, if you did actually write part of it. LOL!
