US Senate candidate threatens suicide on Twitter. Intervention saves the day.

Chelsea Manning 'safe' after tweeting alarming photo hinting at suicide
NY Daily News

Chelsea Manning alarmed her friends Sunday night with a pair of since-deleted tweets in which she contemplated suicide.

The U.S. Senate candidate — a former soldier and whistleblower [1] — who is hoping to unseat a Maryland Democrat shared a jarring photo of what appeared to be her poised to jump from the ledge of an unidentified high-rise building.

The figure in the photo was wearing pink pajamas and had painted toenails. [2] It's unclear where the photo was taken.

"I'm sorry - I tried - I'm sorry I let you all down," Manning wrote. "Im not really cut out for this world - I tried adapting to this world out here but I failed you - I couldn't do this anymore - I can take people I don't know hating me but not my own friends," she added. "I tried and I'm sorry about my failure."

...
[1] I see what they did there.

[2] Oo la la. :lmao:

I originally thought the American taxpayers had paid for a sex change operation so I was prepared to be pissed off that s/he had tried kill-self. However, wiki says that the surgery never took place, so I really don't give a damn what that drama queen does.

Stop giving the little attention whore what it wants and perhaps it will, in fact, jump off the building.

No sympathy here.

Not about Chelsea Manning, but get a load of this other candidate.

Tired of having to choose between Democrats and Republicans?

Congressional Candidate In Virginia Admits He’s A Pedophile
“A lot of people are tired of political correctness and being constrained by it,” he said. “People prefer when there’s an outsider who doesn’t have anything to lose and is willing to say what’s on a lot of people’s minds.”

When asked whether he’s a pedophile or just writes about pedophilia, he said, “It’s a mix of both. When people go over the top there’s a grain of truth to what they say.”
According to Larson’s campaign manifesto, his platform as a “quasi-neoreactionary libertarian” candidate includes protecting gun ownership rights, establishing free trade and protecting “benevolent white supremacy,” as well as legalizing incestuous marriage and child pornography.

In the manifesto, Larson called Nazi leader Adolf Hitler a “white supremacist hero.” He urged Congress to repeal the Violence Against Women Act, adding, “We need to switch to a system that classifies women as property, initially of their fathers and later of their husbands.” He also showed sympathy for men who identify as involuntary celibates, or incels, suggesting it is unfair that they “are forced to pay taxes for schools, welfare, and other support for other men’s children.”

Using the pseudonyms Leucosticte and Lysander, Larson frequently participated in conversations on his own message boards, he confirmed to HuffPost.
Reading some of the comments he posted on his own forum, it gets worse, if that's possible.

Is this even controversial? Does anyone doubt that Hitler is a white supremacist hero?

I don't know why that is thrown in when the pedophile stuff is pretty horrible.

This reminds me long, long ago when Reagan was running for reëlection [Stop that.--Ed.] occasionally the press would look for the Singular Loons who would run against him in a state Republican primary. I think in New Hampshire there was a guy who looked like he lived in a shack, whose platform was: "annex Mexico and acquire Canada."

Heh . . . internet cannot help me! NPR had a 30 year anniversary which was all about Mondale and Hart--remember him? Monkey Business!--that noted that Reagan won 97% and a Democrat had a write-in effort to get him to win the Democratic primary as well.

So . . . sorry . . . whither the great effort to annex Mexico and Make Canada Great . . . Now.

Here is an archived copy of his manifesto:

https://archive.fo/2gVvl

It's clear that by "white supremacist hero" he is expressing support for Hitler. It's very much an apologia for Hitler.

Sure, not controversial at all!
