Skip to comments.The Taboo on Mentioning Black Mob Violence
Posted on 08/08/2011 7:40:18 PM PDT by neverdem
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.
The hateful murders of Matthew Shephard, who was gay, and James Byrd, Jr., who was black, were memorialized with national legislation. When similar crimes are committed by blacks against whites, they are greeted with ignominious silence. Just ask your friends how many of them are familiar with the murder of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsome, or David Graham. How many are familiar with Hoang Nguyen, who was killed in a senseless "game" called the knock-out game, in which mostly black attackers attack mostly non-black victims?
Now that some news...
Alex Pareene of Slate complains, "Since Obama actually took office, though, Drudge has seriously stepped up his 'scary black people' coverage." Pareene is naturally too thoughtless to consider that the attacks have largely emerged after Obama took office, with the first serious outbreak occurring in Philadelphia in 2009. The New York Times must be racist for reporting on that event. Of course it's "race-baiting" to point out unique problems that have emerged or worsened under this president -- like flash mobs, debt, and entitlements...

Now you know what's the purpose of high capacity magazines, self defense from flash mobs.
The conditions for a Category 5 hurricane are all there; it is easy to see a political reaction taking shape in this country that would make the Tea Party movement look like a PTA bake sale.Le Bon, Gustave. The Crowd: A Study of the Popular Mind
Ann Coulter mentioned Le Bon numerous times discussing Demonic on C-Span.
I was accused indirectly of racism because I had the temerity to point out the following facts right here on Free Republic:
1.) All violent flash mobs captured thus far on film are young and black.
2.) All use the same mode of operation.
3.) All have been directed at non-blacks or small businesses.
In the same way that not all muslims are terrorists but the vast majority of terrorists are muslims, not all young blacks are violent flash mob participants, but the vast majority of violent flash mob participants are young blacks.
If you point out a wave of [racial] black mob violence, you are “race-baiting,”
The above is how it should read - since it is not “racial” but rather “black” mob violence. Moreover, race represents identified groups of people: negro, Caucasian; oriental, etc.
As such, if “whites” were to engage in mob violence, they it could also be said that to identify such violence would also be “race baiting”.
All videos of ANY of this kind of violence have shown exactly the same demographic.
I am open to suggestions that this might happen with a wider demographic (for example, due to circumstances such as a higher percentage of businesses in these areas experiencing those events are more likely to have working surveillance video than some other areas) but I have yet to see it.
Believe me, I would love to be proven wrong on this.
Suggestion: when you see an article about mob violence, no matter the source, assume it is black mob violence.
If someone calls you on this, maybe even calls you a racist, point out that in every article you’ve read about mob violence where the publisher had the guts to name the color of the rioters, it has been black mob violence.
The Left are apologists for this kind of violence.
It is time we stop the nonsense and vote them all out of office.
C’mon people! Get mad! Don’t just sit there complaining with your keyboards. Step away from your computers and get involved! Volunteer, send money, join your local Tea Party.
2012 is going to be a watershed year. This is the time to get involved.

Also point out that if the gang is white, you have ZERO reason to doubt that the media would splashing it everywhere...therefore you can’t lose.
Did this link on the printer friendly page, or did it default to the regular webpage? We have to excerpt American Thinker now.
What makes you think we aren't? How do you think the 2010 elections went down the way they did?
The rule of thirds probably applies here, but whether it is a third of the population as a whole who are getting involved, or a third of non-liberals is open to discussion.
>> The hateful murders of Matthew Shephard, who was gay,
I later heard Shephard’s death was related to drugs, not his homosexuality.
Seemed to be the printer friendly page.
Too bad they are going that route, but I guess I understand. It is a phenomenal website, I am more impressed with each article from there that I read.
I hadn’t heard that, but I will say that the crime SHOULD have been prosecuted as HOMICIDE, plain and simple.
Hate crimes legislation really is a negative sticking point with me, not only because it is unnecessary, but because it caters to a demographic of some kind in preference to another. It has to presume it knows what the motive of a killer was when a crime was committed, not that the crime was committed.
Punishment is not equal under the law, and that is a problem.
I agree with this statement, but would change it to liberalism in general. It is a pox.
Liberalism presupposes that evil does not exist, and that all negative things in society, crime, drug abuse, sexual abuse, murder, etc. are all due to underlying "root causes", and if those can be fixed, Utopia can be achieved.
Conservatives understand that evil simply exists, and that we are responsible for our actions.
Hate crime legislation is superfluous and unnecessary of course but more importantly it is racist legislation. If Colin Ferguson could not in 1995 be charged with a hate crime there exists no hate crime by any person in any group.
Since the thread on white privilege was pulled, I’ll post my answer here.
Hello, it’s not privilege.
It is a European heritage that dictates a certain set of behaviors that others have come to expect from those with light skin. Folks expect that those with light skin are raised Christian and will reflect Christian values. And the majority do. Folks expect those with light skin are raised with a Western Civ viewpoint. And most of them are.
This does not constitute “privilege”. Most people with white skin have have generations of Christians and Western Civ critical thoughts behind them. Intact families. (Prior to the 60’s when the generational curse of divorce took hold.) There is just no way that those with light skin are going to reflect Oriental values, or any other values you could name. They are going to reflect Christian, western values. Nothing wrong with that. No reason it should be otherwise.
Concealed carry and controlled fire.
This guy is a liberal, but he wrote a brutally honest article yesterday.
Here’s some excerpts....
The United States badly needs a workable and affordable post-Great Society approach to the inner cities. Unfortunately, we dont have this yet and it is quite possible that we will face some testing times as a result.
But there is another trend that bears watching. There are a great many angry and frustrated people in this country who have lost faith in their national leaders and they arent Black. They are, in fact, white.
Whites as well as Blacks have lost faith in the government and the intellectual and cultural elites. Some whites resent what they see as excessive privilege for Blacks reflected in affirmative action. Many believe that the federal government and the (largely white) upper middle class establishment wants to marginalize the traditional white majority in the US through a combination of deliberate immigration policy aimed at reducing white preponderance in the population and by favoring immigrants and non-whites for education and employment.
.....For people who feel this way, the reluctance of the mainstream media to cover racial flash mobs is sinister and disturbing. If there were no racial dimension to these mobs they would surely receive much greater publicity and there would be much stroking of chins and learned talk about what the phenomenon meant.
Its really worth the read.
“Volunteer, send money, join your local Tea Party.”
I think our local Tea Party has already been co-opted by the RINOs.
There’s just something about an email from a group like the Tea Party that rubs me the wrong way when it starts, in large type, “A MESSAGE FROM YOUR PRESIDENT.”
>> Hate crimes legislation really is a negative sticking point with me
Same here. It’s unconstitutional as far as I’m concerned.
>> Punishment is not equal under the law, and that is a problem.
Excellent point. Thanks for the addition.
recently there was one @ Howard University where it appeared they were turning on each other.
I never did see anyone report about what they were fighting over.
As long as you keep pointing that out scrupulously, I don't think anyone can accuse you of indulging in fallacies, like wrong direction, hasty generalization, undistributed middles, false analogies, or errors of composition.
The link brings up the printer friendly page.
My poor old 56K dialup modem thanks you :)
Yeah, that's RiNO-speak.
Ignore. Better still, get refractory and question this clown's assumption of authority.
I think he's more of a classical liberal, i.e. a conservative these days. He wants all the useless nonsense from the progressives dumped. I believe he's a democrat like Victor Davis Hanson.
Its really worth the read.
That's why I linked it in comment# 1.
Thanks for the link.
Other commenters cannot find their brooms fast enough to suit them. I would wager most of them are potential and quite likely future Palin/Bachmann/Cain supporters, once the campaign gets underway.
The next conservative President will have the very unenviable task of cleaning the Augean Stables left behind by FDR, LBJ, Slick Willie, and Obozo. It's going to be a back-breaker, and the media will be carping all the way.
It's interesting that the writer of your linked article does not blink at, but quickly acknowledges, liberal media bias in handling stories like this one -- while asserting good motives (such as were on display in the Matthew Shepard case? Oh, please!).
Thanks for the feedback!
Some noteworthy articles about politics, foreign or military affairs, IMHO, FReepmail me if you want on or off my list.
You’re not only being racist, but ageist as well! It’s very insensitive to point out that they are mostly young.
3 days of looting and rioting in London and their media is pointedly NOT mentioning any race.
Who made the accusations?
This same attitude is applied to black crime in general. I read yesterday on Free Republic (I can’t recall the author) that for the past ten years in America black men have raped between 15,000 and 33,000 white women annually. White men have raped less than ten black women annually. Such a discrepancy would be headline news if reversed.
The MSM covers the race of criminals when they're white. Black criminals get a pass. That's racist..
Just further proof of how racist white men are...
The biggest problem conservatives have is we have our eyes open. Liberals go through life with eyes closed and hands over ears... The term 'delusional' comes to mind.
I suspect Holder thinks blacks aren't bullying white's enough to get their 'piece of the pie'.
Really Holder, tell your people to grow the berries and wheat, market the produce, build the bakeries, design supply chain system to get the pies to market and run the business to sell and market the pies.
Holder, please - quit acting like it's our job to give you the means of production. Tell ' your people' to learn to build complex systems - and create wealth from them...

Ah, yes. Well, I thought it was understood, and thought to pass by the mentioning of RiNOid contributions to the national dungheap.
But of course I stipulate to your point, and it's worth mentioning that the Demonrats' apologists in media mention George W. Bush's prescription addition to Medicare every chance they get, as an example of an expensive program of the kind conservatives dislike, and it's a good example. I think that program was offered in order -- it was said -- to front-run, offer a backfire and firebreak against, and generally frustrate a more-comprehensive, more-expensive Democrat plan, some kind of Obamacare or Romneycare plan the 'Rats were thinking about trying to bullrush through the Congress (by rolling the RiNOs, it goes without saying).
As such, the Bush prescription program is almost a perfect example of RiNO "Me-Tooism" in action. This sort of thinking practically defined the GOP in the 40's and 50's, when it was identified with such powerful Republicans as Wendell Willkie, Harold Stassen, and later on, Jacob Javits, Nelson Rockefeller, and Richard Nixon (who gave us affirmative action and wage and price controls, as two iconic examples of RiNOism).
I think the woman is lightning in a bottle and will break the bottle and break the Washington Crowd, too. She'll need good help, and I think she can, by now, find enough to make it work. It isn't like 1980 any more, when conservatives with government experience were thin on the ground. We have a much better crop now and can govern all the agencies, unlike 1980, and won't need the backstabbing, self-serving Bushbots like James Baker to get things done any more. That's what they see, too, and that's why they are so savage in their vilification of Bachmann, Palin, and anyone else who comes along. They are desperate to forestall this Conservative American Revolution.
Sarah Palin? Hercules in a skirt.
