Simply outrageous (Milwaukee Paper censors readers comments due to race)
jsonline ^ | July 6, 2011 | js

Posted on 07/07/2011 11:07:04 AM PDT by milwguy

The looting of a BP service station and subsequent attacks at nearby Reservoir Park Sunday was a troublesome event that soured the normally buoyant Fourth of July weekend and raised a number of questions. Among them: Why didn't Milwaukee police connect the dots faster? And where were the parents of these young people?

Surveillance video taken from the BP service station shows clear pictures of dozens of youths stealing snacks, sodas and other merchandise. Some of them may have participated later in the beatings and robberies at the park. Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett said Wednesday that several parents have contacted police to turn in their children, and Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn said one person saw himself on the video and turned himself in. That's the responsible thing to do. We urge other people with information about the incidents to come forward.

Sunday's mob-like activity was similar to another isolated incident earlier this year at Mayfair Mall in Wauwatosa. In the January incident, officials had to shut down the mall after groups of unruly youths began looting and fighting.

Poverty is no excuse for bad behavior. There are a number of single parents who overcome long odds to raise children who respect the law and other people. Strong parenting and positive role models help kids make good decisions. Programs to keep them occupied can help. So can summer jobs, because they provide a paycheck and instill a sense of responsibility. Responsible kids don't usually get caught up in such attacks.

Some witnesses and residents questioned whether race played a role in the looting and beatings. Witnesses say the attacks were unprovoked and that the victims were white and the attackers were African-American. But we'd agree with Flynn, who said crime is colorblind. Flynn also downplayed the notion that police tried to minimize the severity of the incidents. Flynn said that initially police weren't fully informed of the details.

OK, so now that Flynn has the information - complete with a video - we would like to see his department work with the community to prevent future incidents such as this one, which the chief so accurately called "barbaric," "disturbing" and "outrageous."

It is well known that the Journal Sentinal has the typical liberal political correctness when it comes to racial issues. The regularily omit the race of perpetrators of violent crimes if the person is black or an illegal alien.

The police chief of Milwaukee has taken a similar politically correct stance when downplaying mob violence.

Over the 4th of July, a gas station was ransacked and a group of white people were beaten and robbed by a mob of angry young black youth. Unreported in the paper for the most part is that the mob was not only beating and robbing the whites, but also hurling racial slurs at the same time. This is a hate crime, but both the police chief and newpaper are trying to cover up this fact. The police chief even went so far to say it was not a 'mob', but just some scattered incidents. It was only when the gas station owner released to the media his closed circuit tape of 30 or so black kids looting his store, and people who had been beaten and robbed by the same thugs came forward that he changed his stance.

What REALLY irritates me though, is that the online story about the police chief meeting with the neighbors and victims yesterday does NOT HAVE A COMMENTS SECTION for readers to chime in.

When the 'Chaos at the Capital' was going on and as with most every other story, big or small, the online JSONLINE has a comments section. This time they left it out intentionally because they know that the 'sheeple' now know the facts about this mob beatdown and the police dept's attempt to cover it up and even the liberals who live in the RiverWest neighborhood are PISSED.

What does it say about the local paper that it picks and chooses which stories it will allow its readers to comment on? Disgusted does not begin to describe how I feel now.

“What does it say about the local paper that it picks and chooses which stories it will allow its readers to comment on? Disgusted does not begin to describe how I feel NOW.”

Now emphasis mine. You must be a very patient and tolerant person, or you are unobservant or clueless, because most papers and ABCNNBCBS have placed a lot of us in a relatively constant state of disgust for a number of years.

Whichever it is, glad you NOW see the light.

You just started the targets were Whites but STILL say crime is colorblind?

Looks like the media & Police are colorblind. The attackers sure as hell weren’t.

What the politically correct crowds don’t realize is that the omission causes more anger among those who care about the news and crimes.

People who actually care about their community already know or suspect the truth, the predominant race involved in such crimes these days. The crime is actually what angers them.

But when there is a clear attempt by the media of the police to cover it up or whitewash the race of the perps it moves from just simple anger to infuriation.

And that causes even more problems and creates animosity that otherwise wouldn’t exist.

The only reason the paper or the police would try to cover up the race of a criminal is because they know something is wrong, hence the reason for any coverup in the first place...

But they are trying to cover up what 90% of the public already knows, which simply enflames the issue... but they cannot see it.

It says that you have an uptight liberal newspaper that is more concerned with political correctness than reporting the news or allowing its readers to express an opinion.

Pravda and Izvestia were at least honest about their role as propagandists.

As has the politically correct sheriff of Tucson when he blamed all the conservatives for the shooting of Giffords. They all read from and believe the same Marxist playbook. Dupnik the dupe.

It means they would prefer white folks get killed than to tell the truth about black crime.

If 6% of our total population commit 50+% of the total crimes every year and that 6% is of one culture then there is a serious problem with the culture and the politically correct whitewash is simple aiding and abetting the criminal mentality of said culture.

If you refuse to acknowledge the problem then there will never be a solution. The left is making sure there will never be a solution.

What’s beginning to irritate me is the number of sites that no longer have a log in on the site itself for making comments-rather, you log in to your facebook account and then are enabled to comment on the site. I do NOT have a facebook account, no intention of getting a facebook account, and I really hate how prevalent the “log in to your facebook account to comment on our news site” crap is getting.

Eventually people will have to either settle with blacks or surrender to whatever they want. I fear that surrender is the only option; the reason being, whites do not have the physical and moral strength to resist. Whites would rather die than fight. As Spengler said “die to provide amusement for others.”

The major local papers in MN did the same thing with the “Beat Whitey Night” story about the Iowa State Fair last year.

Pioneer Press now allow people comments only via sign on and only with a Facebutt account.

We had a similar situation a few weeks ago involving an illegal alien who was killed while working on a bridge restoration project funded by the State. Their closing the comments on that story only resulted in that story being discussed in EVERY other story, regardless of connection.

I only just noticed this over the last month or so : Like a memo went out to a big percentage of news sites to force people to use facebook, where before that you just registered on the news sites themselves. (Probably not-I'm sure it's just easier for the news sites, but it seems creepy to me how this change seemed to occur over night.) I hate this. I really don't want to get even an alias facebook account-I guess I'm just going to have to keep my thoughts to myself anywhere except on a (dwindling) number of news sites that don't require a facebook log in.

Probably...I saw an article here a few weeks ago on facebook losing a fairly significant number of users, AND one on China trying to buy quite a bit of stock in facebook,AND on employers requiring applicants to submit their facebook account info so their comments can be assessed for “racism/sexism/fattism/homophobia/ xenophobia/ God only knows whatismobia”.(According to the Daily Mail repost here, a man had his hiring rescended because wrote (from memory) : “This is America, they (immigrants) need to speak English” . What a shocking sentiment . /s) If enough people leave facebook, just like they did the dying my space, I wonder how hard it’ll be for news sites to go back to the older way, of having people create log ins for their site?

probably just dinosaur media papers trying to hitch their wagon to the “newfangled” tech of facebutt.

instead, people will probably just skip their silly leftard newspaper websites altogether and hasten their inevitable demise.

I think you are wrong, I think blacks and illegals are in for tough times in the years ahead. Eventually orgs such as the old KKK will spring up and mass killings will occur. I am not advocating such actions but I do believe they will occur if the media and LEOs continue to cover up for the criminals.

You think I’m wrong. Could be, though I doubt it! In the main, whites want a life of UNDISTURBED games, eating, drinking, drugging, copulating, evacuating their bowels accompanied by restful naps and lots of night time sleep. As an extra throw in a gentle flow of governmental cash and people feel paradise is achieved. There is no strength or severity which is necessary for our survival.

“Eventually people will have to either settle with blacks or surrender to whatever they want. I fear that surrender is the only option; the reason being, whites do not have the physical and moral strength to resist. Whites would rather die than fight. As Spengler said “die to provide amusement for others.””

Bitter truths you point out.

But — bitter as they may be — they are no less true for being so.

The white folks pretty much already know what they have to do to get things back under control. But that doesn’t mean that they have the intestinal fortitude to do those things.

So — what will happen in the end?

I think that ultimately, we will see mass migrations in North America that eventually create new “Euro homelands” where American Euros will again constitute “un-challengeable” majorities. They will exist both to the north and the south of the Canadian border.

But — if that occurs — I predict that these new homelands WILL NOT be part of the current United States of America or of Canada...

Whether the breakup will be peaceful or not, I can’t say. I CAN say that Euro-conservatives would prefer to “go peacefully on their own”. It is _the left_ that will resort to deadly force to PREVENT them from leaving. We know what that means.

Either this is going to happen, or American Euros will become but a shrinking minority in the emerging “brown America” (as has already happened in California). And they won’t “enjoy” their newly-aquired “minority status”, either, but instead will be ever-more persecuted as their numbers shrink.

Think of the situation of the Jews in Europe in the 1930’s, and you can juxtapose that against the future of Am-Euros in the late twenty-first century on the North American continent....

I won’t be around to see it. But some here will...

Just sayin’...
