London burns. Thank goodness it can’t happen here. Or can it?
Disturbing riots in London are variously attributed to disaffected “youths”; to anger over the shooting of a gangbanger by a policeman; to “children” engaging in hooliganism because their parents are uninvolved; to hooded political dissenters, stirred up by unions and activist groups in protest of UK anti-austerity actions; or to “flash mobs” organized via social media by thugs who want only to take things they can’t afford to buy.
While leaders in the UK crack down, putting more police on the streets, even talking (disturbingly) about shutting down Blackberry instant messaging systems, similar incidents occur here, throughout our country, mainly ignored by the NATIONAL news media. Why? Because the perps are black and the victims are not?
These racial hate crimes are ignored, not only by our Justice Department but also, studiously, by the lamestream media. Here’s a recent story from Wisconsin:
“It looked like they were just going after white guys, white people.” … “They were attacking everybody for no reason whatsoever.” …
“It was 100% racial,” claimed Eric, an Iraq war veteran who [said] that young people beat on his car. …
Witnesses’ accounts claim everything from dozens to hundreds of young black people beating white people as they left State Fair Thursday night.
Here’s another story, this time from Pennsylvania:
PITTSBURGH — About 100 teenagers swarmed from a McDonald’s to Trader Joe’s to a new Target store during a riot … the trouble started … where Mount Ararat Baptist Church had just wrapped up its community picnic. … “They came in Target, they were throwing chairs, everybody went running,” said witness Shauny Bowe. … “They went to McDonald’s, and they told people to get out, cussing and swearing. They were about to taze people. I was scared for my life.”
Here’s another horrific attack by a mob of African-American “youths”, another hate crime perpetrated by blacks on people because they are of another race, sex, or sexual orientation. Where is Eric Holder and the Justice Department? Where are the federal charges for hate crimes?
Shaina Perry remembers the punch to her face, blood streaming from a cut over her eye, her backpack with her asthma inhaler, debit card and cellphone stolen, and then the laughter.
“They just said ‘Oh, white girl bleeds a lot,’ ” said Perry, 22 … Perry was among several who were injured by a mob they said beat and robbed them and threw full beer bottles while making racial taunts. The injured people were white; the attackers were African-American, witnesses said.
Another mob attack took place that same night, in a nearby park. Police originally tried to downplay the story at a press conference,
[Police chief Edward] Flynn attempted to defuse reports that mobs of youth were running through the Riverwest neighborhood attacking citizens. However, he acknowledged that those responsible for the BP store looting and attacks … had mob-like characteristics.
Nobody’s talking about the hate aspect of these crimes. In fact, Chief Flynn seems quite reluctant to talk about it, although he acknowledges that hearing racial epithets while being victimized might be “terrorizing.”
The media would splash this story on front pages across the nation, or feature it as the top story of the day ad nauseum, if the alleged perps were white and the victims non-white, as this blogger agrees.
Instead, they seem to go out of their way to NOT cover the story or, if they do cover it, to downplay the racial aspect and refer to the alleged perps as “kids”, “teens”, “bullies”, “children” or “young boys.” Why is that?
This has happened with increased frequency across the country in recent years. Here’s a story from Columbia, Missouri, 2009:
Adam Taylor, 25, was robbed and assaulted … he was walking through the parking garage when five or six males in their mid- to late teens approached him, kicked and punched him and stole his wallet.
Notice anything missing? An accurate description of the perps? Mind you, they hadn’t yet been identified and the police were hunting for the perps. That story says the victim suffered “minor injuries”, although another story reports that he suffered
bruising of the brain, severe whiplash, scratches on his face and internal bleeding.
Apparently readers of the first story noticed what was missing from the description and asked online why race was omitted from the descriptions. Perhaps they’d seen video of this horrific attack on another news outlet. An employee of the news outlet weighed in:
To describe someone as black and in his mid- to late teens doesn’t narrow down a description sufficiently to help the public identify a suspect. The Missourian publishes full descriptions provided by victims to police when the description contains three, unchangeable characteristics, like height, weight, a specific facial feature, skin color, a tattoo. The description provided by the victim to police in this case was practically useless (no fault of the victim who was certainly terrified and in no state of mind to remember more specific details — and that is one of the reasons eyewitness identifications of suspects often result in wrongful convictions). … We think the description provided contributes nothing useful to one of the goals of such reporting: locating suspects. We don’t hide useful information from our readers. We do, however, practice a certain restraint with regard to including race when it is irrelevant. And by the way, most crime in Columbia is not black on white.
So right away we spot the “editorializing” in her response. Why include the allegation that eyewitness identifications “often” result in “wrongful convictions?” She knows this for FACT? Well, video doesn’t lie.
Lucky for this victim, there were cameras. In this instance, the white victim did report that the perps were black, so the three elements required by her standards were met: race, age, sex. So why not issue an accurate description? Political correctness that is going to get more people killed.
“Just the facts, ma’am” has apparently fallen out of favor. Now the media censor facts, presumably to protect us from our racist selves.
There’s another aspect to this story, however. The perps, upon being caught, admitted that they were playing a game!
Teens arrested on suspicion of robbing and attacking a Columbia man three weeks ago in a downtown parking garage said they did so as part of a game called “Knock Out King.” … Police interviews with the suspects revealed that they had discussed the attack prior to its execution and that it was part of a game, according to the statements.
In this case, some perps were caught and convicted of second-degree robbery. No hate crime charges. No assault charges, even. No conspiracy charges, either. We wouldn’t want to pile on these “young boys.” We wouldn’t want to ruin their lives.
One opinionator decried the harsh sentence one of these “really stupid kids” got. The column provides loads of sympathy for the perps and seems to blame the victim’s mother for inciting anger among the public, which caused “overkill” in sentencing, in his warped opinion.
Taylor’s mother promoted adding more surveillance cameras. Not surprisingly, the ACLU weighed in AGAINST the project because, they said, cameras might not help deter crime.
No, but they do a damned good job of convicting criminals and (with luck) keeping them off the streets.
No feds came in to protect Adam Taylor’s civil rights.
This Knock-Out King Game, also known as the Knock-Out Game, is well known to law enforcement, if not reported by the media. One story, already cited, did attempt to explain the “game”, but notice how the academic glosses over the racial aspect:
University of Missouri Department of Psychological Sciences Professor Dave Geary doesn’t blame society. Geary said the “Knock Out King” game is a twisted way of showing dominance within a group of teenagers.
“This sort of thing, I’ve seen happen before,” Geary said. “It’s just showing off a display of physical strength and prowess. It’s just a status-oriented thing.”
The game is also “played” in nearby St. Louis.
Retired Sgt. Don Pizzo … recalls “three or four” reports of the “Knock Out Game” or “the Knock Out Kings” going back to 2008.
“Normally it was a group of black males, one of which would strike him as hard as he could in the face, attempting to knock him out with one punch,” Pizzo said. The attacks fit a pattern, Pizzo recalls, black attackers on a white victim — and the victim was often an older person walking alone.
A particularly tragic and gruesome result of this “game” came to pass, when
72-year-old Vietnamese immigrant Hoang Nguyenwas beaten in cold blood by four black “youths” while walking home with his wife from a grocery store. The man died. The perps were NOT charged with a hate crime or with violation of Mr. Nguyen’s civil rights.
Here’s a case from South Carolina, reported in a UK newspaper:
Four members of a teenage gang have been charged under a state’s lynching law after allegedly beating an 18-year-old student so badly he required facial reconstruction surgery.
South Carolina prosecutors have charged the boys with second-degree assault and battery by mob, a crime which until last year was known as lynching.
The eight members of the gang, the youngest of whom is just 13, allegedly set upon Carter Strange in a parking lot as he jogged back to his home in Columbia. … He was left with a broken nose and a broken eye socket, and doctors had to operate to remove a blood clot.
Mrs Strange arrived in court on Friday with her husband, John, to watch as the eldest of the gang, 19-year-old Thyeem Henrey, was charged with second-degree assault and battery by mob, common law robbery, and criminal conspiracy.
A 14-year-old, 15-year-old, and 16-year-old appeared in juvenile court to be charged with strong arm robbery, second-degree assault and battery by a mob, and criminal conspiracy.
A 13-year-old and three other 16-year-olds were charged with criminal conspiracy. They are all too young to be named.
The brutal beating happened last Sunday, when Carter, described as a “sweet and quiet” boy, was jogging back home from a friend’s house.
No federal hate crime charges. No federal civil rights violations charged. In yet another case from St. Louis, the victim was a white gay man:
Youths in St. Louis playing the knock-out game beat a gay man near the Galleria in St. Louis. The victim has a broken nose, a sore jaw and a black eye.
The attackers were screaming “f*cking f*ggot” while they beat the gay man.
A robbery victim attacked near the Galleria says he was targeted for the “knock-out” game in which gangs of teens strike someone until they are knocked unconscious.
22-year old Matthew McLeod of Crestwood had just left the Richmond Heights MetroLink station Thursday at 2:30 PM when a group of five [black] teens approached him on the Galleria Parkway near the I-170 overpass. McLeod said he was struck by two of them once in the eye and nose and once on his jaw. Witnesses saw him fall down and called police.
McLeod said the teens cursed him for his sexual orientation before striking him.
Richmond Heights police were able to round up the 15 to 16-year olds and turn them over to juvenile authorities. The victim’s mother, Sue Lamartina-Virga said police told her the youths confessed to “playing the ‘knock-out king’ game” and targeting Matthew because he looked feminine.
So a double whammy of a hate crime, and yet no federal civil rights violations alleged. No federal hate crime charges, so far. Here’s another “flash mob” incident, this one near Philadelphia:
UPPER DARBY — A mob of about 40 people stormed into the Sears department store on 69th Street Thursday, and in a flash stole thousands of dollars worth of merchandise, officials said.
Police were able to round up 15 juveniles and one adult, 19, all from West Philadelphia.
“They came in on the El train and hit Sears,” police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said. “They stole sneakers, socks, watches, whatever they could get their hands on, and left.
“Imagine the guts of this gang of young hoodlums. One was 11 years old. The others arrested ranged from 12 to 16 years old. They planned this out earlier in the day on a social networking site. It was pre-planned. They got on the El, got off at 69th Street Terminal and walked up the hill to Sears.”
Here’s a case from Dallas, Texas:
With 16 surveillance cameras inside and out, [Sam Farah] has the video to prove it. Last week, a mob of people descended on his store all at once after midnight .
“They start trashing the store [and] eating,” Farah said while watching surveillance video of the incident. “It’s like they’re robbing the store.”
While several paid, the rest ate, drink and stole before police could get there, Farah said.
“We had to clean up for two hours,” he said. “Plus, merchandise is gone. A bunch of merchandise is gone.”
Farah estimated he lost up to $500 that night.
There are many more examples out there. One must wonder how this would be covered in the lamestream media if these were mobs of white “youths” organizing via social media in order to rampage through businesses, bent on theft and destruction.
Or if white “youths” played “a game,” the intent of which is to assault vulnerable non-whites, such as the elderly, women, or gay minorities.
If white gangs accosted minorities on the street or in parking garages, striking them in a “game” to see if the person could be knocked out with only one blow, while shouting racial or anti-gay epithets at them, what do you imagine would happen?
Would the lamestream media camp out on Eric Holder’s doorstep, demanding to know why he doesn’t press FEDERAL charges against these “young boys” (and girls)?
Would race-baiters Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson call for Holder’s resignation and for his boss to be impeached?
To quote Cosmo Kramer, “You better believe it.”
If you want to know WHY there are no federal charges in these many cases, this website supplies the answer the lamestream won’t:
Attorney General Eric Holder testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee on June 25  and gave startling testimony that means Christian ministers and whites will not be protected under the hate crimes statute proposed by the Department of Justice. Holder says that the proposed statute would only protect “traditional” victims of hate crimes, and then he goes on to name a series of Democratic Party constituencies. …
Holder: “Well the statute would not necessarily cover that. On the other hand, I think the concern that actually has been expressed is if the action was reversed. . . . We are talking about, if in fact the person, we are talking about crimes that have a historic basis. Groups who have been targeted for violence as a result of their skin color, sexual orientation, that is what this legislation is designed to cover. The fact that someone might strike somebody as a result of pure speech, again, . . . we don’t have the indication that somebody was motivated to strike at somebody because they were in one of these protected classes. That would not be covered by the statute.” …
Holder explicitly says the proposed law only protects classes “where there is a history” of violence against those groups. “What we are looking for here in terms of expansion of the statute are instances where there is a historic basis. See, groups of people who are singled out for violence perpetrated against them because of who they are. I don’t know if we have the same historical record to say members of our military have been targeted in the same way that people who are African American, people who are Jewish, people who are gay, have been targeted over the many years.”
What a conundrum! What cognitive dissonance Holder must feel when confronted with a case like Matthew McLeod’s. He’s gay, yes, but he’s WHITE. He was attacked by members of a “protected” class. What to do, what to do?
I’m reminded of Ann Coulter’s new book Demonic, which posits that liberals love mobs. Does this despicable attitude by Eric Holder–that HIS people will not be held to the same standard as other racial or ethnic groups–explain the hubris and audacity we see in the actions of these flash mobs and game players? Eric Holder, Attorney General–chosen by the first black president who promised to be colorblind and bring all Americans together in a new “post-racial” age. How’s that hopey/changey thing working out for you?
Like the New Black Panthers who so openly violated the voting rights of white people during the 2008 election, do these thugs KNOW that nothing will happen to them? Are they assured that they won’t be arrested and charged with hate crimes or civil rights violations? Is that why, since Obama’s election, such blatant racially motivated incidents occur with increased frequency? Read all about Holder and the New Black Panthers here, here, and here.
We’ve often discussed what might happen within the next year, before the election. Just this past week, we heard a former vice president of the United States calling for an “American Spring”, inciting people to take to the streets, as did flash mobs in the Middle East, during the violent “Arab Springs”, to which the rioting in London is now compared.
We learned this past week that one of our largest unions, the AFL-CIO, helped to incite these Arab Springs, which OVERTHREW governments and REWROTE Constitutions, based upon the will of MINORITIES who protested. Writer Aaron Klein predicts that the left plans “street chaos” in Chicago this coming spring.
May, just in time for an American Spring. May, the favorite time for communist street theater.
Will Eric Holder’s Justice Department protect the people this spring? All the people, regardless of race, color, creed, national origin, religion, or ideology? Don’t bet on it. He already testified that he may not. That’s encouraging, isn’t it?
What will prevent the overthrow of our system of government and the rewriting of our Constitution, if we have no protection from rioters and thugs?
When instead, we have former vice presidents and current politicians CALLING for such uprisings? Why? Because they know We the People are prepared to vote them out, because we didn’t vote for COMMUNISM or SOCIALISM!
It’s time for the patriots in this Congress, in this government, to stand up to protect this country, our Republic, to defend our way of life, and to STOP this impending socialist revolution. Articles of impeachment might suffice. Rand Paul needs to call for Holder’s resignation and Obama’s resignation, while he’s calling for Geithner’s.
We may not have much time left. Will there be an American Spring? Will Soros and the NWO rule? Is America as we know her doomed to be “fundamentally transformed,” by any means necessary?
UPDATE 10/25/2011 “Young people” who happened to be black attacked motorists who happened to be white, in Peoria:
A Meals on Wheels delivery driver was making his way to a home in the 800 block of West Nowland Avenue about 12:45 p.m. Wednesday when he encountered a group of 15 teens – 13 males and two females – walking down the middle of the road.
The group would not yield to the motorist, who followed him until reaching the house where he had to make the meal delivery. As he exited to take the food to the door, he was verbally attacked, according to a report on the incident.
One teen called him “honky,” while another threatened to “kick his white (expletive).”
As the volunteer driver returned to his car to leave, the teens surrounded his car and pounded on it. The vehicle was not damaged, but police noted disturbances to dust on the vehicle, backing up the driver’s story.
A woman driving in the 800 block of West Brons Avenue on Saturday night was the subject of a similar, but much more aggressive confrontation. She encountered a group of more than 40 teens about 10:25 p.m.
The group surrounded the 21-year-old woman’s car and began beating on it with an object that shattered her driver’s side window. One of the boys involved in the attack also pointed a handgun in the direction of a passenger in the car, but didn’t make any threats or attempt to open the door.
When police responded, the group scattered in different directions. No arrests were made.
Both incidents remain under investigation by police. Public information officer Doug Burgess said Monday the incidents do not appear to be organized efforts, but rather the byproduct of unruly circumstances.
Those unruly circumstances will get you every time. Watch out for them.
UPDATE 10/27/2011: “Teens” attack a St. Louis man on the street, unprovoked, knocking him out and then sauntering slowly away, unafraid, as the ST. LOUIS MAYOR and his bodyguard stop to help the victim:
Quain couldn’t comprehend Wednesday why anyone would prey on unsuspecting people.
“I’m just bamboozled because it is so senseless,” Quain, 51, said. “I just don’t know how these kids can go out and do such thoughtless, gutless things.”
Quain and a neighbor, Jon Kelly, said they were walking home Friday night after buying beer at a Schnucks store on South Grand Boulevard a few blocks from their apartment when a group of teens surprised them.
“They came out of the shadows and popped him,” said Kelly, 48, of St. Louis. “One guy hit him once. He dropped like a rock. It was a knockout punch.”
Kelly said only one of the teens from a group of more than a dozen males and females punched Quain in the face. …
[Mayor Francis] Slay, Kelly and Quain speculate the attack was part of “the knockout game” in which attackers target random victims, but police say they have no evidence of that. They don’t know why Quain was attacked. …
Police have no suspects in the case.
The incident appears similar to other unprovoked attacks in St. Louis and across the country frequently spearheaded by teens. In a similar attack in April near Grand Boulevard and Chippewa Street, Hoang Nguyen, 72, and his wife, Yen, were walking from a Vietnamese market near their home when two males and two females approached, police said. Nguyen was punched in the head and kicked in the abdomen. He died at a hospital. His wife suffered an eye socket fracture after she was punched in the face.
In that case, prosecutors charged Elex Levell Murphy, 19, of the 5400 block of Geraldine Avenue, who told authorities the killing was part of the so-called knockout game.
In August, an official with Trailnet, a St. Louis organization that promotes walking and biking, said a man riding a bicycle with his girlfriend reported being punched in the face by a group of six to 10 young men on Tower Grove Avenue near Flad Avenue. Nothing was stolen from him.
As you can see, important facts are missing from the story, AS USUAL. The victim is white. The perps are black. No mention of any potential HATE CRIME charges, should they EVER find any suspects. Are they even looking? Surely there is surveillance footage somewhere. Where is the JUSTICE DEPARTMENT? Where is justice for any of these victims of SENSELESS RACIALLY MOTIVATED ASSAULTS AND MURDERS? If the races were reversed, what would the stories look like? [Update: 10/28/11: The St. Louis police inexplicably say it’s not a racially motivated crime. Community leaders, as usual, say it’s the result of teens being bored, so the community needs to provide more recreation. I love the logic. If you have no recreational facilities, then of course, your only recourse is to go out on the street and prey upon innocent people. They’re sociopaths with no consciences. That’s the problem. Good news: Six arrested. The Mayor thinks they should be charged as adults for attempted murder.] Update 2/20/13: One of those arrested for this crime, and later released because an intimidated witness refused to testify, was shot and killed by a homeowner while he was attempting to break into the person’s house. His accomplice was charged with manslaughter, not the homeowner. The deceased was 15, and only 13 at the time that he allegedly attacked Mr. Quain. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch continues to report that these knock-out “games” are not racially motivated, even though the victims are invariably of another race than the perps, who are are nearly always black or hispanic.
Update MAY DAY 2012: WND reports about an attack on a white couple by a mob of as many as 100 young blacks, which the media, as usual, studiously ignored. But amazingly enough, these weren’t just any white victims, but were employees of the very company that suppressed the news of the attack! Will Eric Holder’s Dept. of inJustice send a team to investigate this HATE CRIME? Or are they too busy trying to invent one in Florida? There have been far too many incidents like this across the country in the wake of the Trayvon Martin case for me to keep reporting them here. But here is our more recent post about the Martin case and another about a second travesty of justice involving a white woman shot and killed by a police officer.
Update March 26, 2013: A WND writer maintains a comprehensive list of these incidents. A new name for the “game” is Polar Bear Hunting, which proves that these crimes are based upon racial animus and are racial hate crimes. A St. Louis activist cites evidence that St. Louis, Missouri, media and its police department are deliberately suppressing multiple incidents of the “knockout game” so that people don’t realize how dangerous the city is becoming for white people.
Moved from Open Thread as this is most appropriate here.
Finally..some common sense! Making the parents responsible and talking to the kids..hopefully, it will work.
[Black] Philadelphia Mayor Talks Tough to Black Teenagers After ‘Flash Mobs’
9:08 p.m., Monday, August 8, 2011
PHILADELPHIA — Mayor Michael A. Nutter, telling marauding black youths “you have damaged your own race,” imposed a tougher curfew Monday in response to the latest “flash mob” — spontaneous groups of teens who attack people at random on the streets of the city’s tourist and fashionable shopping districts.
“Take those God-darn hoodies down, especially in the summer,” Mr. Nutter, the city’s third black mayor, said in an angry lecture aimed at black teens. “Pull your pants up and buy a belt ‘cause no one wants to see your underwear or the crack of your butt.” “If you walk into somebody’s office with your hair uncombed and a pick in the back, and your shoes untied, and your pants half down, tattoos up and down your arms and on your neck, and you wonder why somebody won’t hire you? They don’t hire you ‘cause you look like you’re crazy,” the mayor said. “You have damaged your own race.”
Mr. Nutter announced that he was beefing up police patrols in certain neighborhoods, enlisting volunteers to monitor the streets and moving up the weekend curfew for minors to 9 p.m. Parents will face increased fines for each time their child is caught violating the curfew.
In the latest event July 29, about 20 to 30 youths descended on Center City after dark, then punched, beat and robbed bystanders. One man was kicked so savagely that he was hospitalized with a fractured skull. Police arrested four people, including an 11-year-old.
Thanks for moving that here, Bridgette. I was going to ask you to. Didn’t you have another example posted recently? Also the prediction from Glenn Beck’s show? I didn’t have time to watch that video.
It’s a sham and a disgrace that Holder does not get involved in protecting those who are clearly being victimized on account of their race, sex, or orientation (if they’re white). These are clearly hate crimes when the perps are shouting racial insults and epithets, or anti-gay rhetoric, as they beat down their victims. When hate crime legislation was passed, surely the Congress and former presidents believed that the laws would be equally applied. Surely a law, as described by Holder, cannot even be Constitutional. How can ONLY “protected classes” which were “historically” oppressed deserve equal justice under the LAW? Consider how ridiculous Holder’s beliefs about history and “his people” are. This man is sworn to uphold the law and the Constitution and he basically admits that he’s not going to enforce the law if victims are white (and apparently if perps are black, no matter the race of the victim–as in Mr. Huong’s MURDER in cold blood). How many people across this country even KNOW about Mr. Huong’s murder?
Where’s justice for Shaina Perry? Remember Al Sharpton and Tawana Brawley? That FARCE? That LIE?http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tawana_Brawley_rape_allegations
btw, interesting factoid: Brawley has converted–she’s now a Muslim.
Kids with nothing to do and looking for kicks. Kids with no responsibilities, no idea of the cost of their rampage, just for kicks. A twisted mind gets kicks out of beating up people or terrorizing them. They feel powerful, when they are really powerless. The summer time brings on more juvenile problems, and these are being exacerbated by our so called leaders who are nothing but humans with big mouths. Calling tea partiers racists, extremists, terrorists and saying they are white. Our fine black president doing the same and causing the divide between the classes and telling those young minds that they deserve more from the rich. It is purely a symptom of the intentional rhetoric that is setting back racial relations in this country and setting up people against people. It is pathetic.
What’s pathetic is how Obama duped so many people into voting for him because they BELIEVED (fell for) his empty rhetoric about being colorblind and post-racial. Kumbaya and all that. As you said, he’s set back race relations. It’s like 1968 all over again. Except this time, will they turn the German Shepherds loose on the VICTIMS as the rioters beat them down and loot their businesses?
I hurried up and finished this article, two weeks in the making, because both O’Reilly and Hannity covered this tonight. The London riots, the connection to Philadelphia’s mayor, and reports that some of the rioters in London said they looted to show “rich people” something and one woman said she looted to “get back my taxes.” Their PM was very tough. Came back from vacation to announce that they will do everything in their power to STOP this behavior. Can we hope that, if similar things happen in our country, we’ll hear the same from our government? Will Obama and Holder take rioters and looters to task OR will they SIDE with rioters and looters against “the rich?”
Left coming unhinged: Union member puts daughter in front of a car; Gore goes on wild rant…Glenn talks about Jan Schakowsky (D – IL) and her rant to get people out into the streets, as well as the mobs in other countries.
The masks are really starting to come off the radical leftists, and they’re demonstrating what they really want to do. A few examples – first, a union worker put his child in front of a truck in order to yell at ‘scabs’ who were driving, and dropped several F bombs in the process (way to go, Dad!). Al Gore was caught on tape in a profanity laced tirade claiming anti-warming scientists are ‘paid for’ and not real. And disturbing audio coming from a United States Congresswoman who seems to indicate it’s their goal to get people protesting in the streets.
The reason the corrupt media is censoring this is because they know what we will do to these animals once we are awake and aware.
Miri, This is a great post, maybe the best you have ever written. I think the best post we have ever had on this blog. I have read it over and over many times today as it makes one truly think on what is happening in our society and why. It makes one think on the reality and not a sugar coated list of false excuses to fall back on. It makes me want to write on possible solutions and real reasons why this is happening to respond to your thoughts. It inspires honest and deep ways to fix the real issues here. Our society has not progressed, it has downgraded like our credit score. It needs to refocus on common sense, values and ethics. In life, law, politics, churches and all else.
You truly have me thinking on all of this. My applause.
Thank you, Renee. What I most wanted to show is how the lamestream media self-censors, based upon their own ideology and their condescending, superior attitude towards their readers, viewers, listeners.
They firmly believe that the way they think is the way everyone should think. Their “think” is “RIGHT THINK.” Anyone who thinks otherwise is merely too stupid to know better.
Therefore, the stupid ones must be reeducated, via propaganda, to THINK RIGHTLY, like progressives think.
In addition, the great mass of (global) society MUST BE protected from the “WRONG THINK” of those who don’t think like progressives. Ergo, self-censorship, as I said in the post, to protect us and all of society from what they characterize as racism but which is merely the truth–INCONVENIENT TRUTH for the new world order that progressives want to IMPOSE upon everyone else, FOR THEIR OWN GOOD, OF COURSE.
Because why? Because in their minds, they believe that not only do they alone think rightly, but also that they ought to RULE because they alone think rightly.
This is the VERY ESSENCE of TOTALITARIANISM.
It’s the OPPOSITE of what our country was founded upon–FREEDOM, INDIVIDUAL AUTONOMY, which means ACKNOWLEDGING THAT EVERY INDIVIDUAL IS EQUAL AND THEREFORE SHOULD CONTROL HIS OWN DESTINY.
School Shootings Have Direct Link to Al-Qaeda
ST. CHARLES, Mo., Aug. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ —
According to award-winning novelist and relative of Columbine shooting victim, Daniel Rohrbough, there is a direct link to school shootings and Al-Qaeda. “When I researched school shootings, more and more evidence pointed to how the Internet is being used to infiltrate, deceive, and recruit boys into the dark world of terrorism,” says Linda Rohrbough.
Formerly a computer book author, Rohrbough discovered a link between school shootings and Al-Qaeda while searching for answers after her nephew was gunned down at Columbine. “My first inkling of the connection to Al-Qaeda was when I attended the Columbine memorial service. I recognized General Colin Powell at the center of the platform, in full military dress. He was never mentioned or introduced, and he never spoke. He was just there.”
Further reports unveiled the Columbine shooters bragged theirs would be the first of many shootings. Also, the teenage shooters low-level formatted the hard disk drives of their computers before heading out to kill. Rohrbough wanted to know, “How could they know other shootings would follow? And why erase their hard disk drives? What were they trying to hide?”
Fortunately, in two cases, the authorities got to computers before the low-level format was complete. First, in a school shooting in Paris, and second, when a teenager in Florida flew his dad’s plane into a building. In both cases, e-mails traced back to Al-Qaeda operatives. Most recently, three teens in Louisiana were caught before shooting and are being held on conspiracy to commit terrorism charges.
London police raiding houses over UK riots
AP – Aug. 11 3 hrs ago Snips
LONDON (AP) — Police in London raided houses to round up more rioting suspects Thursday as Britain’s big cities remained largely quiet after four days of rioting and looting that drew thousands of police officers onto the streets. Prime Minister David Cameron issued a stern warning that order would be restored by whatever means necessary.
Deputy Assistant Commissioner Stephen Kavanagh said the raids to round up suspects began overnight, and more than 100 warrants would be executed. Police have already arrested almost 900 people in London since trouble began on Saturday, and 371 have been charged.
Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said the “sociological debate” about the origins of the violence was for the future.
Also due to appear in court were several people charged with using social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook to incite violence.
Scenes of ransacked stores, torched cars and blackened buildings have frightened and outraged Britons just a year before their country is to host next summer’s Olympic Games, bringing demands for a tougher response from law enforcement.
Britain’s riots began Saturday when an initially peaceful protest over a police shooting in London’s Tottenham neighborhood turned violent. That clash has morphed into general lawlessness in London and several other cities that police have struggled to halt.
“‘I’ll keep doing this every day until I get caught. When I get home, nothing is going to happen to me,’ [so he thought!] a teenager laden with looted goods told a BBC reporter in Manchester in the early hours of Wednesday. ‘The prisons are overcrowded. So what are they going to do?’ he added for good measure. Children as young as 10 were seen carrying off looted goods in plastic bags from shops in the northern city, laughing and joking as they threw the items in the air with delight before disappearing down side streets and alleyways to escape the police.”

They know the courts are a joke now days Miri and they are taking full advantage of that fact. It will only get worse and worse. Destroy the basic values of a society and then take it over. Sound familiar ? So infested and filthy. Society becoming a trash can with common sense law and values a thing of the past ?
While some social analysts interpret the looting as “crimes of convenience” in an age of “entitlement and instant wealth,” others see deeper causes.
“We have to recognize that this mayhem exposes a broken section of British society – utterly detached from the values and responsibilities we expect of our fellow citizens,” said Gavin Poole, executive director of London-based think tank The Centre for Social Justice.
So then the fellow citizens that follow the rules of society now have no rights ? Lovely…..Like the Mad Max movie no ?
They’re utterly detached and utterly amoral AND it’s the FAULT of those who are not utterly detached and utterly amoral.
Centre for Social Justice. That says it all.
I linked this on the open thread, too, but the writer touches on this topic, too:
“You must follow the dictates of Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder that no voter intimidation by black people against white people will be prosecuted and if a protected class of individuals–i.e., the New Black Panthers–are convicted of crimes, the convictions are to be (illegally) overturned. You must remember and be prepared to quote–verbatim–Holder’s words: “When you compare what people endured in the South in the 60s to try to get the right to vote for African Americans, to compare what people subjected to that with what happened in Philadelphia [to white people], which was inappropriate….to describe it in those terms I think does a great disservice to people who put their lives on the line for MY people!” and “To compare that kind of courage, that kind of action, to say some Black Panther incident is of greater concern to us, historically, I think just flies in the face of history!” If you’re Caucasian, you must be prepared to sneer at yourself each time you see a mirror and apologize profusely to everyone you pass on the street for your race.”
If you’re Caucasian, you must be prepared to sneer at yourself each time you see a mirror and apologize profusely to everyone you pass on the street for your race.
That is bullshit. I am caucasian, have never been a part of anything done to blacks and I have been a polite part of the human race my whole life.If the statement above is correct then every country and ALL of their people will be saying I am sorry to EVERYONE forever. They will never have a moment to do ANYTHING else. He is stirring up evil between humans. Human beings have been fighting each other a long time. Let me point out that I never expected anyone to say I am sorry to me either. Hopefully, people learn from their mistakes and become better as the years go on, but with this kind of statement it will never happen. He is stirring up a race war for his own ill reasons and is a sick puppy. I have friends of all colors thank God. This is sick and he should be arrested for trying to stir up bloodshed and violence between humans. No color indicated here. We are humans. He is a low life. Does intentional come to mind ? Does divide and conquer come to mind ? If not, then those that do not get it are puppets and brain dead. Those puppets mean nothing to this ass. They are just half minds and disposable like toilet paper to him. To be used and flushed down a toilet. Disgusting . I cannot stand trouble makers and that is what he is.
I should have copied a little more of that article. The writer was saying how a person must believe if that person follows Obama and the progressive left.
we are now the Obstructionists
Wow, they are putting photos of the looters on billboards and on huge posters in shopping malls. People are turning them in after seeing those. Public shaming for the criminals and humiliation for their families.
England riots: Suspects appear in court
12 August 2011 – VIDEO
More than 1,600 people in England have been arrested in connection to the recent riots, suspected of a variety of offences relating to the disorder. Courts are continuing to process a stream of riot-related cases and police have been raiding homes to arrest suspected rioters and looters.
Next thing ya know, they’ll be bringing back the stocks. People can throw ‘maters at ’em. Or maybe PEAS! There ya go. We won’t have to eat our peas; we can throw them at rioters. With pea shooters!
The mentality of the Left – Just like Obama’s talk to cause division between the rich and the poor. Their own criminal behavior is blamed on the rich people, not on themselves for lack of self control. If I were the judge, juveniles should be made to help clean up the mess, and rebuild the stores or buildings they burned down. They should wear a sign on themselves too. I am an arsonist, or I am a looter! I am a thief! Let them work off their sentences during the day and go to juvenile detention at night. They’d have to work for a place to sleep and a meal, and work off the damages.
London rioters: ‘Showing the rich we do what we want’ – They laugh. Yeah, it is such a joke!
“Showing the police we can do what we want.”
“All this happened because of the rich people.”
A scarlet “L”! I like it. Or maybe “R” for rioter.
“All this happened because of rich people.” That’s rich. What sort of wonderful educational system do they have to turn out such geniuses?
‘WE’LL HUNT DOWN THESE BLACK MEN, CUT OFF THEIR HEADS AND FEED THEM TO OUR DOGS…’
August 12, 2011
As riots in the U.K. become increasingly volatile, bands of vigilantes, in this case Muslim ones, are roaming the streets looking to take on any and all comers — mainly because three of young men in their community were run down and killed while trying to defend their family’s business. Now since many of the rioters are reportedly black, racial tensions between the two groups have flared, with one Muslim man vowing to “hunt down these black men, cut off their heads and feed them to our dogs.”
Perhaps not the best way to assuage the ever-growing hostility that is rife across the country, but that certainly is one way to get his point across.
And with the police nowhere to be seen, the town’s Muslims are allegedly gearing up with bricks, stones, clubs and cricket bats to ward off the marauding gangs.
Another case of a black “flash mob” robbing a convenience store, this time in Maryland.
“It’s called the “US Day of rage” and their principles involve reminding participants that this is to be an exercise in “non violent resistance”. Chances are there will be some confusion here.
Gleeful about the raging riots that held England captive this week, the tweet has gone out to activists and ‘disaffected’ youth to “occupywallstreet#Sept17” today. Social Networks FaceBook and Twitter are abuzz with plans for coming anarchy on U.S. soil.
The Days of Rage will continue beyond the ‘occupation’ of Wall Street with activists being told “bring your tent”.
Isn’t “occupation” a military term? BTW — These “occupations” are being organized in cities all across the nation. It’ll be quite interesting to see this play out.”
“Fourteen people participating in a downtown march related to a social activists’ convention here were arrested Monday afternoon on charges of disobeying police and public demonstration, officials said.
There were no reports of injuries or property damage in the event by a group called Midwest Rising, which aimed environmental damage complaints against Peabody Energy, based downtown, and the Bank of America branch nearby. … Midwest Rising demanded in its statement that Peabody return what the group claimed were $61 million in tax breaks to the city …, end a plan for a terminal in Washington state to export coal to China and stop coal extraction in favor of renewable sources. It also demanded that the Bank of America refrain from financing companies engaged in mountaintop removal coal mining and pursuing coal export infrastructure. … The protest capped a four-day conference based at the University of Missouri…. [your tax dollars at work] Called “Midwest Rising: Convergence 2011,” it was intended to train activists and “to challenge corporate power.” The group also held a demonstration Friday at the Bank of America downtown. Monday’s march, which appeared to include more than 100 people, followed Market Street east from the Peabody Opera House, at 14th Street, to the Peabody offices at Eighth Street. Connor McFarland, a march spokesman, suggested the arrests were unnecessary. “This was peaceful,” he said. Midwest Rising claims to have 400 people from 50 organizations representing labor and community interests.”
“Who: 400 people from 50 different organizations, including a cross-section of labor, community and climate organizations. Organizations represented include: Missourians Organizing Reform and Empowerment [the ACORN successor in MO: http://dailycaller.com/2010/03/19/from-little-acorns-new-state-level-organizations-grow/ check out the color scheme here: http://www.organizemo.org/ ], Rising Tide, Climate Action STL, St. Louis Instead of War Coalition, Organization for Black Struggle, Little Village Environmental Justice Organization, Coal Country, Mountain Justice/ United Mountain Defense, Greening Detroit, SEIU, North County Neighbors, The Rainforest Action Network: Chicago Chapter, Pick up America.”
Rising Tide is a global anti-coal, anti-fossil fuels group: http://risingtide.org.au/
This is Obama’s plan for 2012. The WH Insider says he’s going to play the race card, big time. http://newsflavor.com/politics/us-politics/white-house-insider-the-obama-plan-part-two/
“Even if it means the threat of race riots. They are willing to go that far – go down that road if need be. If the Obama team can’t guilt enough of White America into voting for them in 2012 – they are just fine with trying to scare the sh-t out of them to do it.”
I fail to see how race riots or massive Days of Rage will make Americans love Barry and want him back in the WH for 4 more years of destruction of our Republic.
Is MORE a new group? Looks like another version of ACORN. [I found the answer…ACORN’s state chapter in Missouri is the latest to rebrand itself as part of ACORN’s national strategy to distance itself from its negative public image. The creation of the St. Louis-based Missourians Organizing for Reform Empowerment Inc. is now “MORE”. Same philosophy, same people.]
Do these idiots know who is hiring? Corporations are the ones that hire! How are they saving homes? These people are taking on too many causes it appears..and exactly where is the creative problem solving being shown..protests? These people need jobs…or are they getting paid to do exactly what they are doing? They are trying to tell businesses how to run their business..these know nothings that have nothing should be listened to?
MORE [ACORN] fights corporate power. We are an uncompromising voice for social and economic justice, gender and LGBT equality, environmental sustainability and peace. Our organizers, members, and leaders are saving homes from foreclosure, fighting to protect our planet, demanding equal pay for equal work, working to end violence in our communities, and figuring out creative solutions to the problems afflicting our schools. Most importantly, we engage in [ALINSKY STYLE] direct action and build power in low- and moderate-income communities based on our ability to move people to action. [Get people off their couches! We use taxpayer money to get people to hold signs, protest, and yell, and even buy them T shirts!]
“Uncompromising?” Isn’t that un-American? Doesn’t their annointed one want everyone to compromise?
These people are completely annoying. Stupid is as stupid does. Do they know their rears from a hole in the ground? Don’t think so.
Watch for a complicit DOJ AG Holder and the Usurper!
Wall Street targeted for Britain-style riots
‘Day of rage’ aims to ‘bring down the stock market’
August 16, 2011 Snips
In the wake of Britain’s riots, a group of American radicals are planning a “Day of Rage” targeting Wall Street and U.S. capitalism.
The upcoming protests, replete with a planned tent city in downtown Manhattan, is closely tied to the founders of ACORN and leaders of major U.S. unions, including the Service Employees International Union, or SEIU.
There are indications the protesters are training to incite violence, resist arrest and disrupt the legal system. The protest aims to take root nationwide.
Planners have their own website – USDayofRage.org – which tells protesters to “bring your own tent.” The website is not specific about the purpose of the “Day of Rage” other than calling for “integrity” to be “restored to our elections.”[If that isn’t calling the kettle black! ACORN reincarnated as something else and they want election integrity! Who are they kidding except those that can’t read!]
Advertisements claim the protests at Wall Street and nationwide will be “non-violent.” However, the official website provides resources, including videos and detailed written instructions, for protesters to engage in “civil disobedience.” The resources provided include instructions on how to resist police arrest and disrupt court hearings.
The use of the term “Day of Rage” recalls the “Days of Rage” organized in the 1960s by the Weather Underground domestic terrorist organization co-founded by Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, close associates for years of President Obama. Numerous radicals, many with direct ties to Obama, are linked to planned protests and other activism scheduled for the coming months. In March, ACORN founder Wade Rathke announced what he called “days of rage in ten cities around JP Morgan Chase.” Rathke was president of an SEIU local in New Orleans. The planned Sept. 17 protest seems to be the culmination of Rathke’s efforts. Those efforts are being organized by Stephen Lerner, an SEIU board member who reportedly visited the Obama White House at least four times.
Can’t wait for the Obama Thugs to take over the cities …and they have no explicit reason to do so, just following their leaders. Wonder what they are getting paid to move their tents from under bridges to main street? Still think Ayers and the other commies aren’t threatening the US? Are city police getting prepared or will they be complicit? Does Barry need to b egin his emergency preparedness and initiate Marshall Law..is that what this is about?
This “revolution” is what Frances Fox-Piven called for a couple months ago by wondering why people weren’t getting angry, then Lerner who wanted to take down the banks. Gaza flotilla didn’t work for these jerks, so bring it to the US. Who loses? All those in the areas where these idiots want to plant themselves for visibility.
Shutting down Wall Street could be called a conspiracy to commit economic terrorism. Wouldn’t you say? Civil disobedience is not the same as a protest. Shutting down Wall Street is a direct attack on every person who has investments in the stock market and THAT INCLUDES people whose pensions are so invested. Which INCLUDES union members, who have large pension funds. This is conspiracy. They stress the non-violence, just like what happened during that lame protest recently. But 14 people don’t get arrested for nothing. Especially in a city with a black chief of police, who, one can presume, sympathizes with the underclass and progressives.
Maybe what they mean by “integrity” in elections is that executive order that the left wants Barry to sign. That would make disclosure of all political donations a requirement for ANY BUSINESS (but not NGOs, like SOROS runs) that WANTS TO DO BUSINESS WITH THE GOVERNMENT. Effectly politicizing and instituting political intimidation into the US government contracting bureaucracy. Can you imagine a company that wants to bid on a US govt. contract donating to Sarah Palin or Rick Perry or any Tea Party (gasp) candidate? No, it’s a twofer for Barry, if he does this. He can assure himself of AT LEAST matching donations for the Dems and can punish any company that does support his opponents.
September 17th, This Day in History
1787: Delegates at the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia vote to accept the Constitution.
1796: President George Washington delivers his Farewell Address as president, and warns against permanent alliances with foreign powers, a big public debt, a large military establishment, and the devices of a “small, artful, enterprising minority.”
1862: The Battle of Antietam pits Gen. George McClellan’s Union forces against Robert E. Lee’s Confederate troops; said to be the bloodiest battle of the Civil War, it stops the Confederate advance into the North.
2001: Trading resumes on Wall Street after an unprecedented 6-day closure following the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11. Pres. George W. Bush says bin Laden is wanted “dead or alive;” he also condemns violence against Arab-Americans.
Anarchy colors. Communist colors. Fist in the air. All symbols of what’s coming.
Not only minorities were rioting in the UK. This story points out how many very wealthy (no doubt educated by commie progressive “professors” akin to Bill Ayers) engaged in the civil unrest. What? For fun? Coming soon, to a country near you. Youth for Hitler. Or anarchy. Take your pick.
“What I find truly baffling is the number of Labour MPs who used Twitter to support those protesters committing criminal damage and endangering lives. [like Al Gore?] Former Labour leadership candidate John McDonnell MP tweeted: ‘Just shows what can be done when people get angry. We must build on this.’ And Labour MP Alex Cunningham wrote: ‘Well done our students – thousands outside the office getting stuck into the Lib Dem/Tory government over tuition fees.’
The ability to protest legitimately is a great British tradition. But criminal damage, violence and trespass are not acceptable or legitimate. A fire extinguisher was thrown off the building, which could easily have ended with a fatality.”
Anarchy. Chaos. All in the Alinsky tradition. Destroy and then rebuild your communist faux-kumbaya DICTATORSHIP. As the students were USED in Egypt, these students will find their ideal world will come back and bite them in their elite asses, when, like the French elite, they’re marched to the guillotine. The students in Egypt WILL BE SUBJUGATED BY THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD. They wanted freedom; they’ll get a FAR WORSE TOTALITARIAN GOVERNMENT THAN THEY EVER IMAGINED.
When this comes to America, we’ll be dependent upon the local cops and the national guard, hopefully under the control of the GOVERNORS, BECAUSE this Administration, like in the UK, will be tweeting its support. Indeed, it’s community organizing these riots (six degrees of separation, however) as we speak.
In Kansas City, a reprise of black riots in upscale Country Club Plaza. There were similar events in 2010, with thousands of blacks rampaging through the upscale shopping district. Now, the MAYOR of KC, in an attempt to go down to see just what business owners are complaining about, ends up nearly getting his head shot off, caught in the crossfire between fighting “youths”. Radio reports said that the youths WERE indeed targeting white shoppers, pushing them into the many fountains that are a feature of the Plaza. http://www.theblaze.com/stories/more-teen-violence-shooting-at-k-c-plaza-injures-3-while-mayor-ducks-for-cover/
“Given the environment across the country of youth riots and flash mobs, many fear that unless something is done, there could be worse violence on the horizon. With that in mind, Kansas City may now follow suit with cities such as Philadelphia that have instituted curfews for those under age 18. Kansas City already has a curfew in place, but it may lower it, and increase enforcement efforts.”
Some video here: http://www.kmbc.com/video/23118534/detail.html
Local ministers were against the proposed curfew, although they changed their minds when they saw it for themselves. As usual, these are “youths”, parents are blamed, racial aspect (hate crime) downplayed, or not even reported. http://www.kansascity.com/2011/08/14/3074974/mayor-james-walks-the-plaza-for.html
This guy tells it like it is: http://urbangrounds.com/2011/08/kc-black-mobs/
Will there be justice for whites who are attacked on account of their race, when the leaders of these cities are often of the same race as the “protected class” rioters?
Forbes predicts a GLOBAL class war, with riots as in the UK around the world. Organized, as we already know, by unions like SEIU International, among others. Funded by the usual suspects, too.
Don’t forget ALGORE and the American Spring riots that he wants (aka Days of Rage 21st century). It’s 1968 for these morons, all over again.
“This fundamental class issue is not only present in Britain. There have been numerous outbreaks of street violence across Europe, including in France and Greece. One can expect more in countries like Italy, Spain and Portugal, which will now have to impose the same sort of austerity measures applied by the Cameron government in London.
And how about the United States? Many of the same forces are at play here. Teen unemployment currently exceeds 20%; in the nation’s capital it stands at over 50%. Particularly vulnerable are expensive cities such as Los Angeles and New York, which have become increasingly bifurcated between rich and poor. Cutbacks in social programs, however necessary, could make things worse, both for the middle class minorities who run such efforts as well as their poor charges.
A possible harbinger of this dislocation, observes author Walter Russell Mead, may be the recent rise of random criminality, often racially tinged, taking place in American cities such as Chicago, Milwaukee and Philadelphia.
Still, with over 14 million unemployed nationwide, prospects are not necessarily great for white working- and middle-class Americans. This pain is broadly felt, particularly by younger workers. According to a Pew Research survey, almost 2 in 5 Americans aged 18 to 19 are unemployed or out the workforce, the highest percentage in three decades.”
All demographics that community organizers who want to become communist dicatators LOVE. The more the people suffer, the more they’ll flock to That One for protection, handouts, redistribution. See Chavez, Hugo; Guevara, Che; Castro, Fidel; Hitler, Adolph; Stalin; Joseph; Marx, Karl.
Liberals aren’t funny – they’re a riot!
Ann Coulter – August 17, 2011
Like you I’ve been horrified by the eruptions of mob violence around the globe this summer. But having spent the last two years researching and writing a book about mobs, I’m also grateful to the ruffians for taking to the streets so soon after my book was released.
Thanks, you dirty animals. I knew you wouldn’t let me down.
When I decided to write about mobs, it was a relatively peaceful period. But as long as there is evil in the world, mobs will never be finally defeated. And as long as there are liberals, there will be some people stoking the mobs.
It was only a matter of time, although even I didn’t expect it quite this soon. Mobs are always the same – destructive, left-wing and without any clear cause. Why were young people in Britain tearing apart their cities, burning down businesses and stealing electronics and designer clothes? Because the cops shot someone? Please.
What has gotten on the last nerve of rioters in Greece, Paris and Vancouver? They’re jobless? Their government benefits have been cut? Their hockey team lost? They might as well destroy police cars because they’re upset about rainy days. (That’s not a suggestion, by the way – more of a rhetorical flourish.)
Why were public sector union workers in Wisconsin busting up the capitol and physically attacking Republican legislators? MSNBC’s Ed Schultz says it was because Republicans were trying to take away the people’s “civil rights.” (Evidently, research showed the last seven people actually watching MSNBC were Wisconsin public-school teachers.)
Liberals love mobs because rioting and anarchy is their path to power.
They champion any mob that will increase their political power. Liberals promote welfare dependency, class warfare, endless government programs staffed with public sector workers, street protests, coddling criminals and physical attacks on their ideological opponents. This is how they create reliable Democratic voters.
…what a voting bloc!
They say that the sale of bats from Amazon is up 5000% in the UK because the people are disarmed. An editorial in the WSJ said that the people of the UK can’t defend themselves, not only because they don’t have guns, but also because if they DO defend themselves, THEY get charged with crimes. Even if they defend against an intruder in their own homes, they go to jail if they use a knife or other weapon. An American was arrested when she used a penknife to prevent herself from being attacked and gang raped in the UK. Another guy was facing life in prison for self-defense! People can’t carry ANYTHING that can be used as or perceived as a weapon, so I imagine cricket or baseball bats would be included. This is what’s heading our way. This was the goal of Operation Fast and Furious–to provide bogus stats about arms running to Mexico, to “justify” gun control by executive fiat, despite the Constitution and the most recent SCOTUS decision affirming an INDIVIDUAL right to keep and bear arms. Can you imagine seeing those riots and knowing that even if you have a weapon, if you use it to defend yourself, family, home, YOU’LL be arrested? In addition, in the UK they routinely give “warnings” for violent crimes! No wonder these thugs are so audacious.
Oh gosh..do you mean flying bats or baseball bats? What protection are flying bats? I had no idea they couldn’t use weapons to protect themselves in the UK. I guess knives would be out of the question too. I wonder what their crime statistics are for violent crimes. We know the criminals have to get them and that they must be available on the black market there.
Rand Paul sent out an email a week ago saying that Obama stopped old weapons from WWII from coming back to the US from Europe. They are collectors items, but that isn’t how Obama sees it. I think Paul wrote a bill to override Obama’s decision. I didn’t read it carefully so my information might not be correct.
Flying rabid bats might work, but it would be slow. 😉
I looked for the link to that editorial, but couldn’t find it. WSJ locks up some content. It was an eye-opener. We’ve had similar cases here, before they passed those “castle laws”, which the progressives hate. They have pity on the poor burglar, looter, rioter, rapist, serial killer. Those downtrodden folks must be protected from their victims.
Their handgun crime rate rose 40% since they instituted strict handgun control. I dug the paper out of the recycle bin.
Here’s the link: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424053111903918104576502613435380574.html
“But Democrats’ real achievement has been in destroying the family, and thereby creating an endless supply of potential rioters.
When blacks were only four generations out of slavery, their illegitimacy rate was about 23 percent (lower than the white illegitimacy rate is now). Then Democrats decided to help them!
Barely two generations since LBJ’s Great Society programs began, the black illegitimacy rate has tripled to 72 percent.
Meanwhile, the white illegitimacy rate has septupled, from 4 percent to 29 percent.
Instead of a “War on Poverty,” it should have been called a “War on the Family.”
The vast and permanent underclass created by the welfare state is a great success story for the Democratic Party, which now has a loyal constituency of deadbeats who automatically vote for the Democrats to keep their Trojan horse “benefits” flowing.
It’s the Democrats’ “heroin dealer” model of government.”
Excellent article IMO.
Media Stifling Racial Violence Coverage
August 17, 2011 Snips
Race matters if we want to understand the current wave of racial mob violence. Flash mobs have a lot of people talking, no thanks to PC journalists who have refused all along to help us understand this emerging social problem.
For those who care about language and the truth, Mary Schmich of the Chicago Tribune has done a great service. She openly admits that her newspaper refuses to report the race of violent criminals responsible for an outbreak of racial mob violence in Chicago, which mirrors similar violence around the country. So Schmich has proven the old adage that you don’t need to muzzle sheep.
Schmich admits that there is a fact about the flash mob attackers that readers “haven’t read in the Tribune or seen explicitly stated by most of the official media: The young men were black.”Schmich wants to keep it that way.
This resolute dishonesty is shared by the Tribune’s editor, Gerould W. Kern.Kern wrote, “We do not reference race unless it is a fact that is central to telling the story.” Of course, if you’re PC, race is never central to a story when misbehavior by approved minorities is in question. Thus, the Tribune will evade race when whites are the victims of interracial crime. Kern and Schmich have demonstrated what self-censorship looks like in our Conversation about Race.
The Taboo on Mentioning Black Mob Violence
August 8, 2011
If you point out a wave of racial mob violence, you are “race-baiting,” according to several liberal commentators. Perhaps these liberals are the ones Attorney General Holder referred to when he called ours a “nation of cowards.”
The wave of racist violence committed by black flash mobs is different from any other form of racism today. The neglected social problem of racial mob violence is unique in its organization, the high numbers of people involved, the intensity of the violence, and the stark racial impact of that violence. The violence is also unique in that it has been purposefully obscured by the mainstream media, with the editor of the Chicago Tribune, among others, saying that his paper will not report on the race of the attackers.
I would have scooped them on the story had it not taken me so long to write mine. 😦 It was sitting in drafts for two weeks or more because I kept finding more and more incidents to write about. There are a lot of examples from Illinois, that I left out, because I had to put a period somewhere. I’m glad they mentioned Mr. Nguyen. His was the saddest case. So senseless and inhuman. They “let” the local media cover, but they censor at the national level, studiously avoiding. But look at the difference when the races are reversed. Then any incident, even if just name calling, is reported ad nauseum on the national news. As if name calling is worse than murder in cold blood. Remember the infamous “water buffalo” case where some kid got tired of being woke up every night by some girls who stood outside under his dorm room window and made noise? He was white; they were black, but who knows if he even realized that. He yelled out the window, “shut up, you water buffaloes.” And somehow THAT became a hate crime. Iirc, he was expelled from school. What’s frightening is that these “youths” sense that we have an administration that hews to the lie that blacks can’t be racist and so there is no such thing as a hate crime perpetrated by blacks against anyone of any other color. Bennett has a lot more incidents than I do, but he found some of the same ones I found. Disgusting and frightening and coming soon to a city near you, along with the progressive-ginned-up “civil disobedience” for Sept. and May.
SEIU is in on the planning of these acts of civil disobedience. They’re also in the news for shenanigans they’re pulling in California:
“A California union is expected to file charges with federal officials this week alleging that a major health-care system is trying to tilt a workplace election—one of the biggest in U.S. history—to a rival union.
The National Union of Healthcare Workers alleges that in recent weeks Kaiser Permanente in California has let campaign messages from the Service Employees International Union pass through its email system while blocking NUHW emails, and also allowed 50 SEIU stewards to campaign for the union election on company time. Under federal labor law, employers aren’t permitted to give any union preferential treatment over another.”
By any means necessary.
So this is union vs union vs Kaiser vs Obamacare vs federal law! Love it when the unions are fighting each other and letting loose all their secrets of how they operate! Worried about their cash…their bottom line. How do the member feel about how their money is spent?
Yo Al Sharpton, HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes, I bet that IS a story seen only on FOX. Three incidents, not one. The reporter says “it’s senseless.” No it ain’t, bro; it’s fun to beat up on whitey. That’s what BaRACK and MIchelle taught us.
HATE CRIME charges? Oh, wait. They can’t be racists, so they can’t commit hate crimes. Got it, Eric.
Are the black flash mob attacks on whites Obama’s fault?

Mary Kay Ash, founder of Mary Kay Cosmetics, said, “The speed of the leader is the speed of the gang.” In other words, leadership flows from the top down.
Folks, I believe human beings are responsible for their behavior. However, as America’s first black president, fair or unfair, Obama assumes enormous responsibility in terms of his influence on black youths. This is why it is so unfortunate that American black youths’ ultimate role model is a characterless, race-baiting political hack.
While I am not saying president Obama is responsible for the epidemic of black youth flash-mob attacks on whites around our country, his race baiting has to be a contributing factor.Beginning with Obamacare, Obama and his minions have despicably created racial tension for political gain,accusing all who opposed his hostile takeover of our health care system of racism.
Clearly, the Obama administration’s game-plan for his presidency is to use race as a bludgeon whenever anyone opposes an Obama agenda item. Obama obviously considers the loss of harmony between black and white Americans to be acceptable collateral damage.
It is not a stretch to suggest that highly impressionable black youths might retaliate against a white America perceived to be dissing their African-American idol.

Good role model. And a total jerk, too. Shaquille O’Neal, talking in his upcoming book about the Boston Celtics’ young point guard, Rajon Rondo, and the time he got to hang out with Barry:
“In early March some of the guys went to the museum of Fine Arts for a fund-raiser and got to hang with President Barack Obama. Everyone was a little bit in awe. The President turns to Ray [Allen, another Celtics player], points at Rondo, and says, “Hey, Ray, why don’t you teach this kid how to shoot?” Everyone starts laughing.
KG told me he saw the look on Rondo’s face and the kid was devastated, embarrassed. Dissed by the President, even though I’m sure Obama didn’t mean any harm. Rondo smiled and went along with all of it, but KG told me he could see it in his eyes. It bothered Rondo. It killed him.
The next day Rondo shot the ball horribly. He stopped taking shots after that. He’s so sensitive. I think it was a real jolt to hear the outside perception of a basketball fan who happens to be the President of the United States. It messed with his mind. I’m sure of it.”
Bully, jerk, insensitive clod. Not much of a role model, if you ask me.
wow. that’s so sad. barky is so insecure, apparently.
what a loser
the outcome of one of the black youths that attacked Matthew McLeod-
tried as a juvenile and got probation after a few wks in Juvenile Hall. this is after he was caught burglarizing a home 2 wks after he attacked Matthew McLeod. Reason – Juveniles get to break the law 4 times before they tried as an adult. Hate crime was not even mentioned.
i’m sure the juveniles all know that too.
and yes, it is a black crime. the media won’t call it like it is. we want to be politically correct while they roam the streets like a pack of rabid dogs.
Wow. Thanks for the update. I didn’t know how that turned out. There are SO many of these incidents that it would be a full time job to find them all and follow up on the indictments (if any), the trials, and sentencings. This is as if they have a free pass to attack any whites, gays, immigrants, so long as they’re black (like Holder). There was another incident this week. http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/crime-and-courts/article_8b63e7fc-bff0-51cb-8b97-36d60945f756.html
“Trailnet, an organization that promotes walking and biking … is warning cyclists to be aware after the boyfriend of one of its staff members was assaulted while riding home Thursday night near the Missouri Botanical Garden.
The organization’s executive director, Ann Mack, said the staff member, who was riding with her boyfriend, reported that he was punched in the face by a group of six to 10 young men on Tower Grove Avenue near Flad Avenue. Nothing was stolen from him, she said.
Mack said the couple saw other cyclists ahead who were also attacked. She said a man in that group was beaten when he tried to keep the group from stealing his bike.
The couple said that police officers called to the scene told them they believed the attack was another example of the “Knockout Kings” game.”
Some game, huh? Notice what’s missing from the story?
Here’s another cycling story. Just because: http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2011/08/queen-michelle-obama-wore-200-t-shirt-for-bike-workout/
This story from Post & Email proposes that the Congressional Black Caucus hopes to incite a race war to get Barry reelected. It reminds me of Obama’s recent call to blacks to “mobilize” and Andre Carson’s accusation that the Tea Party wants blacks to hang. Oh, and Mexicans, too.
It’s like the way they tried so hard to paint the Tea Party as violent by PLANTING racist signs at their events; by sending SEIU thugs to Tea Party events to instigate violence and to attack people like Kenneth Gladney; and by making up out of whole cloth that they (Andre Carson and John Lewis, among others) were spit on while walking in DC after Obamacare was passed, by Tea Partiers.
All lies or Kabuki theater. Who’s violent? Who’s racist?
I’d call these thugs in the flash mobs violent AND racist. I’d call the thugs who “play” the “knock-out king game” violent AND racist.
And yet Eric Holder, racist in chief, does NOTHING. NOTHING. Even though he and his POTUS are SUPPOSED to serve ALL the people in a COLOR-BLIND manner, when, in fact, Obama ran as the “post-racial” candidate!
There is video of THIS racism. THESE hate crimes.
These attacks against innocent immigrants (like the murder of Mr. Nguyen), gays (like Matthew McLeod), and whites (too numerous to name) are DOCUMENTED. AND YET, crickets from the Holder in”JUSTICE” dept.
So far, nobody from Lewis’s krewe has come forward to collect Breitbart’s reward for PROOF that he was spit on by Tea Partiers. But these lying liars NEVER let TRUTH get in the way of a good meme.
I hadn’t seen this comment yet. I posted a video response by Alan West on a different thread. I didn’t think of the CBC as a mob…but they sure are!

Alan West Responds to Congressional Black Caucus attacks
“10 to 15 young people — described as black or Hispanic and both male and female — attacked four white men on the 16th Street Mall at about 10:45 p.m. on Sunday.
Denver police say the men were standing on the mall near Arapahoe when they were approached by the group. After a conversation, the group turned violent and they attacked the men.
“It’s really unclear as to what their motivation was — why such a large group of young people came together and assaulted these individuals,” said Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson.”
Ask your president. Or maybe I should say “THEIR” president.
I believe it was Chicago that just had their turn in your guns free weekend! Just what I would want to do if I KNEW ABOUT the violence! The people of Chicago are being FED statistics and information that is the opposite of reality so they are willingly giving up their own protection. Perfect, leave the guns in the criminal’s hands – the democrats will handle it! Chicago is not London – guns are allowed and we have a Constitution that says so, Rahm!
Say how is that workin’ Chicago having Rahm as mayor? You had a choice and let a known lawbreaker take over. Violence is up how much? Propaganda is being used there just as much as by the Chicago thugs located in D.C. Pity you thrice – once for your town, second for the nation, and third for electing Rahm and all the other corrupt individuals that have criminalized your city and state government.
Oh, good catch. I didn’t even think to connect those two issues. Yes, they’re suppressing the information (TRUTH) for political reasons. Putting people’s lives at risk. Well, it’s probably for economic reasons, too–the tourists might stay home if they knew what was waiting for them. We were thinking of a trip to Chi-town, but not any longer. Their bad. How much simpler to just CLEAN UP THE PROBLEM instead of trying to hide it and cover it up? It will blow up in their faces one of these days.
http://fellowshipofminds.wordpress.com/2012/06/16/portland-parkgoers-attacked-by-150-black-teens/ A post about a too-familiar incident in Portland where a mob of African-American teenagers assault white people but the reporters fail to mention the races involved and make sure to claim there’s no evidence of a hate crime. When is this going to STOP?
h/t to Eowyn, this link has a great summary of many of the similar incidents that have occured across the country lately:
Now here’s a horrifying story. It’s going on to an alarming degree in CHICAGO, Barry’s home town. Almost a race war:
ALL COVERED UP by the MEDIA.
“A news anchor at the ABC affiliate in Chicago goes even further: Anyone who reads or writes about the epidemic of racial violence in Chicago is an “idiot” who engages in “meaningless … race baiting,” says Ravi Baichwal.
City officials and the media might be the only two places left where people still deny Chicago is under assault from more than 50 episodes of black mobs attacking, beating, robbing and vandalizing over the last three years in and around downtown. Many of them are on display at YouTube.
Some call it the “Chicago Intifada.”
Over just the last two weeks, black mobs are under investigation in at least five new violent incidents in downtown Chicago.
And according to the award-winning police blog Second City Cop, there may be 25 more incidents of mob violence and lawlessness in that weekend alone that were never reported.
“As someone who worked in downtown Chicago for many years, I am horrified that residents are not only not being protected by the police, but that the city and media are actively denying the public the facts they need to fulfill the most basic of human rights; protecting themselves,” said Michelle Jacobsen. “The police and media have three basic purposes; serve, protect, inform. Their purposely miserable failure is putting lives in danger.” …
City officials sometimes even deny the violence exists – let alone has a racial component. Last year, the city closed North Beach for Memorial Day after a crowd of 1,000 black people attacked beachgoers, knocked some off bikes and created other mayhem.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel said the beach was closed because it was too hot. No one told him about wide-spread racial violence at the beach, he said. Other city beaches remained open. Callers to talk radio and leaks from the police department revealed the true extent of the violence – and who was responsible for it. …
The Superintendent of Police Gary McCarthy said crime is down and he is frustrated that people do not know it.
Last year, just a few days after denying there was any problem with violence from the 1,000 black people who were rioting at North Beach, McCarthy said he knew who was responsible for all the violence: Sarah Palin. Because she supports the right to bear arms.
While city officials and the Chicago media stumble over each other to deny the racial violence, at least one black Chicago alderman figures if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em: Earlier this month, Alderman Anthony Beale said if Metra, the city transit agency, does not hire more minorities, “people are going to get hurt.”
Even the Sun-Times could not ignore that: Its headline said: “Beale predicts violence if Metra doesn’t hire more minorities for rail project.””
