The truth about flash mob racial violence
american thinker ^ | 7/26/12 | r. moran

Posted on 07/26/2012 6:44:55 AM PDT by bestintxas

Keeping a lid on the explosive nature of flash mob violence in our largest cities is very difficult - especially since the fuse has already been lit. AT's political correspondent Rich Baehr points us to this interview at Frontpagemag.com with Colin Flaherty, author of the new book White Girl Bleed a Lot: The Return of Racial Violence and How the Media Ignore It.

A sample from the interview with FPM's editor Jamie Glazov:

FP: Colin Flaherty, welcome to Frontpage Interview. Let's begin with what inspired you to write this book.

Flaherty: Thanks Jamie.

My brother and I were doing a talk radio show in WDEL Wilmington, Delaware when I read a story about something called a flash mob on the streets of Philadelphia. This was two years ago. Then it happened again and again. Finally I looked at it on YouTube, and the violence and mayhem I saw on video was totally different than the antiseptic account I read in the newspapers in Philadelphia. Everyone involved was black. So I asked a few reporters: "What's up with this race riot in Philadelphia?" They said it was not a race riot and I was imagining things. "Did you see the videos?" I asked. "Well, everyone is black but race has nothing to do with it."

The riots kept happening, in Philadelphia and elsewhere. I kept asking people what was going on. They kept denying anything was going on.

My prediction on how this will end:

Someone being attacked will be a Concealed Carry who chooses to fight back by discharging his weapon.

The media will portray this as a gun-toting fella who decided to carry out a "hate crime", in a brazen attempt to overlook who is really committing the hate crime.

This will only escalate matters, and we will have no one to thank other than those who cover up flash mob events.

Unless we call it for what it is, we will not solve this.

For every horrific example of mob violence and mayhem, there is a popular video by a popular artist glorifying it. Looting, making crack cocaine, killing delivery drivers, beating up white people, rioting and stealing to name a few. These are highly produced, very professional songs and videos by the biggest names in hip hop that sell millions of copies and get millions of views.

Not possible. I've been assured recently right here that there is no evidence for the influence of "gansta rap" on its target audience.

This is exactly the sort of scenario that Holder's Justice Dept. is drooling over. They WANT it to happen. That will give them serious leverage to make their final assault on handgun ownership and concealed carry. It's going to get a lot worse before it gets better. Unless Holder is imprisoned and Obama is ousted.

I was in Washington, DC a few weeks ago. It had been several years since I had moved around in the city. I was startled by how unfriendly African Americans were in interacting with whites.

Having come from a working class background, I always encounter service workers with a friendly smile, friendly greeting, and I often try to engage in conversation. In almost every interaction with African Americans I was treated with indifference at best or at worst with rudeness. A few times I could see hatred in their eyes. I found the same on the subway. Few African Americans would engage in conversation. The almost universal negative reaction I received from African Americans when I attempted to engage in friendly conversation astonished me and was not consistent with previous visits to the District. Working class people of other ethnicities (Asians, Latinos, Middle Easterners) were almost universally friendly.

Could it be the Administration and media deliberately pitting black again white is serving to unwind 50 years of positive developments in improving race relations? Has anyone else observed this kind of behavior?

"Unless Holder is imprisoned and Obama is ousted."

The indictments, trials, convictions, sentencing, and execution of sentences of these traitors need to more than just that if the U.S. is serious about justice.

The test case was London last summer, where the riots and looting went nationwide.

Blackberry and Twitter posts organized the looters into cohesive groups, spreading the word about where the riots were currently taking place, safe routes along roadways to travel, and police activity or lack of it.

The Brits have gone out of their way to claim the riots weren’t race-related. But they started when a gang-banger got capped by the police and the underclass went apesh!t.

Don’t think the race hustlers haven’t taken notes.

I've personally experienced the exact same things you speak of, time and again. But it's The Hate That None Dare Speak Its Name. It does not exist. Black racism is white projection, so we're told.

Larry Elder said it years ago: "Blacks are more racist than Whites." Time has proven him true.

I’ve observed much the same pattern here in St. Louis; hostile arrogance, if not outright hate, wafts off most area blacks like heat waves off a desert highway. Several generations of American blacks have been “taught” from the crib to revile whitey and to establish and maintain a so-called culture entirely separate from the hated ‘Man’ (thus all the inscrutible “Africanized” names seen in newspaper articles about ghetto crime - D’elalphonacarus, T’anywiyka, etc.). When you combine this collective hate with the general dysfunction of the greater black community - the propensity to murder and steal, reproduce at will and with as many different partners as possible, widespread, functional illiteracy - we’ve got ourselves a very serious problem that’s only going to get worse.

And when the next Bernhard Goetz case happens, the media will not report the whole story.

They will emphasize that a white man shot an innocent black youth. They will NOT say anything about any provocations which led to such an incident.

We saw a preview in the twisted news coverage about Trayvon Martin.

In all the news stories I have seen about the black youth flash mobs, not a single one has mentioned the fact that these are black youth. Not one.

The media tell us that they are “teenagers” or “young adults” but never identify by other characteristics.

It all started back in the 60’s when the riots and burnings resulted in a rush of Great Society wealth redistribution programs. The process repeated after the Rodney King riots.
These people have been Pavlov-trained to expect rewards for rioting.

""Someone being attacked will be a Concealed Carry who chooses to fight back by discharging his weapon. "

As I understand it, these "shindigs" don't target individuals, except accidentally. They are set up to invade a commercial space and loot it under cover of the "riot". They are more likely to meet up with an angry Korean store owner with a shotgun (see "Rodney King" riots reference).

Yes!

The survival of the Democrat party depends on a 90% plus support of blacks and 60% plus support by Hispanics. The only way they can obtain this support is by cultivating division and racial hatred. They are quite good at inflaming racial passion and have the full support of the media.

The flash mobs are a function of this. These kids and young adults have been brought up on hatred and feeling of entitlement. Psychologically they are just taking what they deserve to have and would have it if not for the "oppression" by the white man. The lack of proper response by law enforcement verifies the validity of their thought process.

You’re correct. Rioting brings rewards. So we have more riots. It’s simple psychology: if you reward behavior, you get more of the same behavior. And the liberals applaud and cluck about how racist we are.

Having spent my boyhood in both DC and ATL, I can tell you there is a huge difference in attitudes.

Much of that exists independent of race, of course, but it was very noticeable.

“Could it be the Administration and media deliberately pitting black again white is serving to unwind 50 years of positive developments in improving race relations? Has anyone else observed this kind of behavior?”

Yes, I have observed that kind of behavior myself, but…

… if you honestly think that over the past fifty years the “developments” in race relations have been “positive”…. you’d better reconsider those beliefs.

Up until the “Civil Rights Era” began, blacks were actually on a pathway towards the cultural mainstream (and by “cultural”, I mean the “white” culture unequivocally and unapologetcially).

It was -after- the passage of such laws as the Civil Rights Act and the misguided Great Society programs to “help” them, that black culture and mores began to “diverge”, to veer off away from the mainstream because black aspiration towards same would be derided as “acting white”.

It’s no mistake that the word “integration”, which was pressured on whites in the sixties and seventies, is now relegated to the scrapheap of racial history. In its place is the new term, “diversity” (of course constructed upon the building blocks of “multiculturalism”).

Consider for a moment the stark contradictions between “integration” and “diversity”. To “integrate”, by my dictionary definition, is to “combine (one thing) with another so that they become a whole”. “Diversity”, on the other hand, contains no implication of making two into a whole, but instead seems to celebrate “separateness”.

For the past 50 years, American blacks, by culture, beliefs, and behavior have not been moving closer to the white mainstream, but have been deliberately moving AWAY from it.

Nothing good can come from this.
And we are seeing the results now, as recorded by security cameras, and displayed in YouTube videos...

They’ve got the “Obamaphone” network well established now.

I’m tempted to try and get one myself just to see what texts and phone messages come down from headquarters.

Just for grins, I looked at the site, “obamaphone.net”.

A poorly-edited group of pages, the shameless Obamabots there claim that Obama didn’t start it, it was in place since GWB (who they type out as “George William Bush”), Clinton, and all the way back to the Wilson years.

Sifting thru the BS to find any data, I did find that the phones, which include 250 minutes of free talk time, are given to low-income eaters free of charge.

The money to pay for it, so they claim, comes NOT from taxes, but rather by fees applied to existing telecomm companies by the FCC. That, in plainer language, is redistribution of wealth.

I’ve noticed some blacks in my area are not as friendly as previously. They are indifferent or must force themselves to return a greeting. It is a kind of hatred you can feel and nothing good can come of it.

Also one of my kids had a couple of black friends who seem to have gone ghetto and not wanting to be around a white boy.

I befriended a young black woman a few years ago. She had wanted to play soccer, but her Mom had no money for league fees or a uniform. I opted to pay both and have been for a while. She is a good student and a great soccer player. She told me she is ridiculed at school by other blacks for studying and wanting to get good grades. If she hangs out with non-blacks, she is bullied even more. She feels there is no way out. I ran into her at Wal-Mart recently. She was alone, buying one item, a Hungry Man frozen dinner. My heart broke for her.

There is a way out, but it's drastic: move to a white area, have only white friends, have nothing to do with other black people unless they have aspirations of becoming middle-class.

The pathology of the black culture is that anybody who excels by herself, has no incentive to agitate for "black rights", and is therefore a traitor to the tribe. Also, anybody who excels makes liars out of those who say "the Man is keeping us down", and exposes the nihilists as losers.

My first trip ever to DC was in 1990, and my experience was the direct opposite. I had nothing but pleasant exchanges with cab drivers and servicce people everywhere. The majority of people in the District were overwhelmingly black. Even in the capitol itself. Even in abandoned areas a few blocks from the mall, I did not feel threatened in any way.

The only hint, a few years later was the admonition that certain areas where there were very expensive restaurants, were "inadviseable" after certain hours of the evening. Apparently it has gotten worse.

Mark Twain remarked that "There is no distinctly American criminal class--- with the possible exception of Congress."

As we examine and debate the current state of societal criminality, Ol' Mark must be clawing his way out of his grave to update that famous remark.

I know you've put it in quotes, the “white” culture - there is not "white" culture. The culture that is mainstream is from Greek-Roman times with some Germanic heritage and influenced by Catholicism and the Protestant reformation.

Many "white" cultures such as that of the ancient Celts or Thracians or pre-Christian Germanics and Slavics have not played a role in this.
