Homeless ex-reporter opted for Berkeley streets

“The Hate Man is probably the most colorfully oddball homeless person on Berkeley’s famously oddball Telegraph Avenue. Known as Mark Hawthorne when he was a New York Times news reporter from 1961 to 1970, Hate Man has lived mostly on the streets in Berkeley since opting out of normal society in 1986. For a man whose penchant for wearing cast-off women's clothes and eating garbage seems a tad feral, the 73-year-old Hate Man is a surprisingly gentle, lucid conversationalist about most anything – particularly his philosophy that everyone must acknowledge that they really hate each other. He went over the fine points with reporter Kevin Fagan.”

Yet another fuggin’ nut-bag:

“According to the complaint, at approximately 8:13 a.m. on Friday, Lo entered the U.S. District Clerk’s Office in the Plano federal courthouse and filed a document styled “Erlyndon J. Lo v. Roberts, et al.” and titled “Motion for an Immediate Temporary Restraining Order Seeking a Preliminary and Permanent Injunction,” seeking to have the district court declare abortion illegal in the United States.

Parts of the motion read:

“My life is at stake. I could be murdered and killed as early as Friday, April 2, 2010 at 12 p.m. noon in Dallas, Texas “TX” if you do not immediately grant my request for in the very least a temporary restraining order.

“I plan on saving at least one human life in Dallas, Texas at 12:00 p.m. at the Southwestern late-term abortion facility, 8616 Greenville Ave. at Royal Ln. NE corner, Dallas 75243.”

“My religious beliefs include the beliefs that an individual is alive at the moment of conception, abortion is murder and is the worst murder of all murders possible because these babies are completely defenseless, and I am entitled under my religious beliefs to use deadly force if necessary to save the innocent life of another.”

“[Specific facts: On Friday, April 2, 2010, tomorrow, I will be at the Southwestern Late Term Abortion Facility located at 8616 Greenville Ave. at Royal Ln. NE corner, Dallas 75243 I will try to stop an abortion using oral words, and if words are not enough I will use physical force if necessary, and if anyone tries to physically stop me, I will overcome that force, and if I must use deadly force to defend the innocent life of another human being, I will.””
