Report: The man who set himself on fire left a manifesto on the evils of capitalism, fascism, and climate change. Here are the details, along with his work history for Democratic campaigns.
· Apr 19, 2024 ·

The media is out there right now hinting that the man who set himself on fire outside Trump's trial in NYC is a Trump supporter himself.

(Anything to paint the mentally ill guys as Christian nationalists or something, I guess.)

Before they go too far down that path, let's consider the alternative: That of Max Azzarello.

Max ran an account called "Dipsh** Secrets" on Instagram where he posted rants about fascism and government corruption.

Max reportedly dropped a final "I love you" video to his followers before the immolation occurred on Friday afternoon. Max then posted to his Substack with the title, "I have set myself on fire outside the Trump Trial."

I've archived Max's Substack manifesto here in case it gets memory holed. It is clearly an insight into how people are stressed and hopeless these days, so I wouldn't recommend reading through the whole thing unless you are able to handle the madness.

I'll simply highlight a few things here.

  • He says "we are victims of a totalitarian con" before outlining a Ponzi scheme involving tech billionaire Peter Thiel, Silicon Valley Bank, and cryptocurrency that will "take down half the stock market."
  • He believes the elites set up a "secret kleptocracy" and that the Republican v. Democrat divide is entirely fake, presenting us with opposites like George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton or Trump and Hillary to keep us distracted while they gobbled up all the resources and money.
  • Their reasoning, he argues (and this is the important part) is "capitalism is unsustainable, and they knew it." He says they wanted to "gobble up all the wealth they could, and then yank the rug out from under us so they could pivot to a hellish fascist dystopia."
  • He then implies that Walt Disney, The Beatles, George Orwell, "Simpsons" creator Matt Groening, and the 1960s film "Easy Rider" were all part of the propaganda machine meant to hide this "secret kleptocracy." This is an actual quote of his:

When we realize that the secret fascists long planned to use new technology like computers and smart phones to pump us full of misinformation, we realize that Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey was ‘predicting' a future that was already planned out.

So yeah, this guy is (was?) deranged.

I'm not writing this to entertain the man's manifesto. Some of his points may sound valid to you because most insane people start with a few valid points, like elites being greedy, and get more fantastical from there.

Let's not get sidetracked by that. The point here is to give you an idea of who he was and to dispel the idea that this man was anything close to a conservative or a Trump supporter before the CNN headlines drop.

He was a loon obsessed with right-wing billionaire Peter Thiel, big banks and crypto, and railed against "fascism," "climate change," and "capitalism."

Max's photo on LinkedIn is a picture with himself and Bill Clinton:

In his work experience (I grabbed a screenshot in case they take his profile down), he lists work as Operations Director for the campaigns of New York Democrat Tom Suozzi and California Democrat Ami Bera, both representatives in the U.S. House.

He also worked for Liberty Hill, which bills itself as "LA's Social Justice Organization."

I'll let you draw the conclusions of why a man who was deeply involved in the leftist worldview would set himself on fire.
