Account of racist Peoria mob spurs national attention
Peoria Journal Star ^ | Jun 26, 2011 @ 06:18 PM | N/A

PEORIA —

Sixty or more young people fought and yelled racist comments at residents as they walked down Thrush Avenue toward Sheridan Road on Friday night, according to eyewitness accounts.

“They were yelling ‘We’re gonna kill all the white people, this is our neighborhood,’” said Paul Wilkinson, 45, a resident who has lived in the neighborhood for 11 years and witnessed the incident about 11 p.m. He relayed the information over the weekend to police, city council members and at least one local blogger.

There are a couple of threads posted already based on a blogpost regarding this incident. This article marks the first appearance of this story in the MSM, I believe.

To me the telling line is this:

Peoria police Sunday confirmed there was an incident Friday night but said they were instructed not to comment on it.

If I lived in Peoria I would be wondering why my paid public safety officials were deliberately withholding important information from the public.

It can’t have been an incident of racism, as apparently the people involved weren’t white.

In my neighborhood, the response to that might have been punctuated with 5.56mm and 7.62 of varying lengths.

Maybe Caterpillar will finally decide to leave the liberal Democrat hell hole known as Peoria. They have many plants in other states that can take on the production that is accomplished in Peoria.

If this incident had been whites in the South doing the same toward blacks, the uproar would be deafening.

I would be buying arms and ammo as fast as possible, and connecting with my neighbors to see about possible coordinated defensive efforts. When the blacks went on a rampage in LA years ago, the Korean shopkeepers knew how to protect themselves and their own. Expect more of this in 0baMao’s America.

Public officials are frightened as they are aware of what might be coming. The only fear I have is that of white weakness. Perhaps whites have reached that level of “civilization” where they are willing to die in order to provide amusement for others.-See Spengler, Volume II

Its coming. When the day comes that the “entitlement” checks stop or get reduced, they will start coming for “what they deserve”.

What they don’t realize is that they will get EXACTLY what they deserve if they choose to rob someone other than liberals.

More like they’re willing to die because self-defense isn’t their job. They will be frantically dialing 911 when the barbarian’s are cutting them to pieces.

There are no Caterpillar plants in the city of Peoria. The corporate headquarters are located in the city. Plants are in the surrounding communities, but have been either shrinking or closing throughout the past three decades.

Peoria is not a "liberal Democrat hell hole". Political parties are not represented in the Peoria city government.

Was this the response of the public information officer, or just one of the cops who answered the phone? I know in my fire department we are not allowed to give statements, only a fire chief.

On the other threads, and likely to appear on this one, are people claiming they would not tolerate this in their neighborhood. Yet as far as I know there was no appropriately violent response from any of the whites being threatened. Why the disconnect?

They are trying to intimidate the whites into voting for Barry, IMHO!

Just a gentle reminder of what could happen if :1. Barry is impeached 2. if Barry loses the election 3. If Barry is kicked out of office for not being a citizen

Folks, this is just the beginning. Remember what Carville said a month or so ago about people taking to the streets? He wasn’t talking about white people taking to the streets.

No, probably not. But others who are less well-informed might.

Think you are right, Whites are not motivated to resist, whereas today the barbarians of are motivated to attack.

As Eric Hoffer once said:

“It is a perplexing and unpleasant truth that when men already have “something worth fighting for,” they do not feel like fighting.”

Not to dispute for the sake of disputing, but to me self defense of ones self and family is one’s job. Indeed, the use of deadly force to protect one’s family is a DUTY!

I disagree - a lot of libs are like wolves in sheep's clothing. I'm thinking in particular of the white guy in the Prius who cut me off the other day (driving down the wrong side of the road because of a car that was attempting to parallel park). Think people like Rahm Emanuel, etc. They are the epitome of condescending liberal thought, but when it comes to something they want - ruthless.

It IS being noticed by many heartbelt of American citizens. It is not amusing to anyone except perhaps the perps and liberals who think whites and businesses "deserve it." Eric Holder has their backs and it's the one topic Obama won't be giving any speeches on.

One out of every 19 American citizens collects disability.

My guess - some cities like Detroit are in the one in three range.

The problem is that when the same “old same old dependents” bankrupt the system, they can get jobs ( many work under the table now), but those who are REALLY disabled will just die - or be thrown on the mercy of family - if they have family.

A 90 year old man who counts on Social Security that he spent a lifetime paying into - can’t go out and get a job. Those people - the truly disabled and elderly will be destroyed by the gang bangers, drug addicts, “HIV positive (more like a cold now-a-days)” folks who scam the system...

Drive through a bad neighborhood and you’ll see the signs ‘ WILL FIGHT FOR YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY RIGHTS... The lawyers take a cut of the winnings - and the winnings are big - free money for 50 to 60 years...

It takes about 15 mins. for police to answer a 911 call and get to the bad guys, a 1911 gets to them at 850 ft. per fec.

Ha ha! That’s pretty funny.

Maybe the candidates don’t have an overt party designation by their name on the ballot, but you can be *damn sure* one political party’s ideology is strongly represented on that council.

And from the evidence that political party is ‘RAT. A conservative council wouldn’t *tolerate* this sort of animal-mob crap.

If you are in public office, especially as a police officer, if you value your ability to feed your family and make that mortgage, you better not tell the truth. If the NAACP zeroes in on an agency for a perceived slight, real or not, that agency is going to be minus a police chief. If it’s a single officer or a group, they will be fired for political expediency.

I cannot say it enough, folks. Arm yourself and everyone in your house above the age of 10 needs to be able to shoot. This mob action is going to be coming all over the nation and the citizenry are going to have to deal with it, once and for all.

Oh come on - everyone there knows the politics of the people who 'serve' - the fact that they don't have a sign over their heads doesn't mean they're not known liberal or known conservative - politics is going on.
