Eric Holder, 'Hate Crimes,' and 'His People'
American Thinker ^ | September 19, 2012 | John T. Bennett

Posted on 09/19/2012 10:05:17 PM PDT by neverdem

A group of those whom Eric Holder described as "his people," at least six young men, repeatedly punched a 24-year-old white woman in the face, then proceeded to kick her face over and over when she was on the ground helpless. This occurred in Buffalo, New York last week, but the event has received no attention by the mainstream media because the victim was white and the attackers were black. This was no friendly urban jostling: the woman was left with a broken nose and cracked bones in her face.

There must have been a little bit of hate in at least one of those kicks to the face, but you can bet it won't be charged as a hate crime.

Instead, those Eric Holder described as "his people" seem to get a pass on hate crimes charges when they select whites for their blood sport. But is it unfair to suggest that young black criminals are Eric Holder's people? The attorney general didn't say "my people when they are law-abiding," and he didn't say "my people when they are doing good things." The attorney general exclusively, categorically identified, by race, with one racial in-group as "his people." In post-racial America, it doesn't seem right that the chief law enforcement officer is referring to a racial group in such terms.

In Buffalo, the unidentified woman happened to be caught up in the tail end of a flash mob. Before attacking the woman, the mob first pillaged a convenience store, filling their pockets with nutritious food which society had deprived them of. The video of the looting doesn't look like something that would happen in a developed country. When the young men ran out, the soon-to-be victim just happened to be outside the store. That's when the group of attackers...

I understand that some people (myself included) have no choice but to be in certain places at certain times due to work requirements, but how does someone end up exposed to “Holder’s people” like this? Do people still underestimate the hatred they bear towards whites, or the danger that entails?

I often have to be in Newark NJ, but it would be a cold day in hell before I am outside of my vehicle anywhere near a group like this (or anywhere a group like this might show up). On the outskirts of welfare reservations like Newark, EVERYBODY knows better (and these crimes don’t get any coverage at all except by word-of-mouth). There was a reason the Allies used convoys during WWII to supply Britain; why wasn’t this woman with a convoy of similar-colored people? (I’m not even being sarcastic)

A white female liberal writer for The Onion named Emily Guendelsberger was attacked by a mob of black teens who broke her leg and beat her. She took to the internet to insist that the attack had nothing to do with race because her boyfriend is "brown" (he is Indian) and he was beaten up as well.

"Even a worm will turn," it's said. But will it complain ?

I wouldn’t expect that from anyone who lives near Buffalo; I’ve been there, and it looks too much like Newark NJ for me to let down my guard.

Usually these attacks occur when war parties leave the welfare reservations to raid along the frontier (in areas where they are rarely seen); maybe that was the case here. In my town the local militia (town cops) would have been all over this as soon as 3 were spotted together; everybody knows the dangers of living on the frontier, and they maintain the local cavalry to deal with just this type of raid.

TheConservativeTreeHouse.com has begun to document the most serious Black-on-white hate crimes.

They report one or two new ones each week.

Virtually all these crimes are reported only by local news sources, if they are reported at all.

You also need to read critically.

Race is often not mentioned, names or descriptions are excised to conceal race, photos are not available, especially when a “group of youths” riot or injure or rob innocent whites.

Hats off to John Derbyshire, who was fired by National Review when he wrote about these violent sociopaths last April.

We need a hundred more like him.

I honestly think people doubt their gut because it would make them racist to have the fear—so they ignore it.

Blacks are more racist than Whites

There are two reasons this may not be technically a true statement, both involved with the definition of the word "racist."

The definition of racism, according to the University of Delaware:

Racist: A racist is one who is both privileged and socialized on the basis of race by a white supremacist (racist) system. The term applies to all white people (i.e. people of European descent) living in the United States regardless of class, gender, religion, culture or sexuality.

By this definition, people of color cannot be racists, because as peoples within the U.S. system they do not have the power to back up their prejudices, hostilities or acts of discrimination.

http://www.creators.com/opinion/walter-williams/academic-cesspools-ii.html

The other relevant definition is the dictionary one. Most dictionaries have a belief in the inherent superiority of one's own race as the primary definition. Hatred and violence against another race is generally, if included at all, a secondary definition.

http://www.onelook.com/?w=racism&ls=a

Since many blacks don't really consider themselves superior to white people despite their hatred for them, by this definition they aren't really racist.

Recently looked up the Southern Poverty Law Center description of "racist music." It's when white bands have lyrics expressing hatred of blacks or other minorities. By this definition, black musical groups cannot produce "racist music."

http://www.splcenter.org/get-informed/intelligence-files/ideology/racist-music

To be fair to the SPLC, they do list some "black racist" groups, though apparently none of them are musical. :)

Critical Race Theory is certainly a pernicious and stupid theory, but I doubt the hate-filled criminals going around assaulting white people are into reading much of anything. Obviously, they're filled with a lot of hate for white people, but I'm willing to bet the great majority probably cannot read at anything beyond a fourth-grade level if at all. The only thing that will deter these kinds of attacks is a combination of better policing i.e. profiling and armed citizens ready and able to use their firearms to protect themselves.

The criminals themselves were probably lost to society by the sixth grade if not before. Through either reasoning with them (doomed to failure) or tougher methods, these young criminals must be made to know the consequences of their behavior. And I think tougher measures i.e. strict punishment and imprisonment will work better for everyone rather than trying to understand them.

Sherman, please tell me you forgot the /sarcasm tag when you posted that.

“Only whites can be racist”? “The term applies to all white people”?

And as far as not bring able to “back up their prejudices, hostilities or acts of discrimination”?? WTF? Affirmative action, EEOC, all the undocumented black-on-white crime, economic blackmail and shakedowns - they have the only weapon they need: terror.

My first point was that liberals, particularly colleges, often define racism in such a way that only whites can be guilty of it, at least in America. That’s a quote from a mandatory indoctrination session from the U of Delaware. And it’s by no means the only example.

This definition is based on the notion that racism is an expression of power. Since only whites have power in America, only they can be racist. This notion looks a little silly, to be sure, at a time when our President is black.

My second point was that the primary dictionary definition is one of a belief in superiority, so you can hate and kill another race all you want without being racist, as long as you don’t believe them to be inferior.

For instance, some (not all) Nazis recognized the great intellectual accomplishments of the “Jewish race.” They didn’t believe Jews to be intellectually inferior, they just believed they needed to be destroyed because they were a threat to the “German race.” By the primary dictionary definition, therefore, they weren’t racist.

Now it should be fairly obvious I believe both these arguments to be nonsense on stilts. They are merely examples of how, if you allow someone else to control the defining of words, they can be used to damn you while excusing everyone else.

A phrase often used to define anti-white bias, reverse racism, pretty much concedes that “real” racism is limited to whites.

This is nonsense, too, of course. Racism is racism, and there is no reverse variety.

You forgot to add one thing: ready, able, and willing to use their firearms.

As members of a Christian, more polite society, we've been taught not to harm our fellow man. That translates into a hesitation to pull the trigger at the moment of truth. As it was so eloquently said in "Full Metal Jacket":

Your rifle is only a tool. It is the hard heart that kills. If your killer instincts are not clean and strong, you will hesitate at the moment of truth. You will not kill. You will become dead...

Through either reasoning with them (doomed to failure) or tougher methods, these young criminals must be made to know the consequences of their behavior. And I think tougher measures i.e. strict punishment and imprisonment will work better for everyone rather than trying to understand them.

Drift, I firmly believe we are long since past that point. Only the oft-repeated sight of their homies' bloating bodies in the gutter, or swinging from lampposts with signs saying "Looter" and "Rapist", will even begin to sink into their minds. Anything less will cost lives: theirs, and ours.

There was a reason the Romans used crucifixion as a punishment. The main reason for it, was its effect on the others.

Thanks for those links Logan. This PC definition of “racism” that is being force fed into students in our government schools is something that would have amazed even George Orwell!

The looney left has gone beyond ignoring or denying the massive, virulent, racist, hatred of whites evident in many blacks. Now they say, that this virulent racist hatred, resulting in many unprovoked beatings, murderers and hate rapes, is not “racist” at all you see,because blacks “dont have the “power to be racist”.

OKaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!?

Just who had the power at Florence and Normandy when Reginald Denny was pulled from his truck by a black mob and nearly beaten to death?

Who had the power in these 377 documented cases of whites being attacked for being white on a public street or in a public place, with 245 murdered?

http://blackracismandracehatred.blogspot.com/2012/07/275-different-documented-attacks.html

With interracial sexual homicide of elderly white women being the strongest crime metric of race hatred of all crime stats,who had the power in these 104 cases of elderly white women being hate raped and murdered by black thugs?

http://blackracismandracehatred.blogspot.com/2012/08/104-elderly-white-women-hate-raped-and.html

Who has the power when black AG Eric “my people” Holder openly states before the Senate Judiciary Committee that white Americans are NOT protected by federal hate crime laws against racist attacks and only Holder approved “protected groups” are protected?

I am reminded of Prince Dracula, when he used his captured Muslims to create the Forest Of The Impaled. It horrified the Sultan's army to the point where they turned around and headed back to Turkey.

Some people, and sadly, in particular, white women, still believe that this does not happen or cannot happen to them.

A flashmob does not pause long enough to determine if your racist or not, they beat you simply because of your skin color.

I bet, or at least hope, that she understands now. Individually, they may seem “cool” and you “have one as a friend” but all premise of decency goes out the window when they are in a mob. The groupthink or groupact takes over and woe to you if you are part of the “oppressor” class.

Carry a gun, and walk with people who carry guns.

Last time I heard, Derbyshire claimed he had written everything he had to say and was going to look for meaningful work, like being a butler (classic Derb).

Perhaps he watched too much Downton Abbey that week?

Good to see he still has something to say and hasn't lost his touch for annoying people.

By the way, “Taki,” who owns the website where Derb publishes now, was also fired by Rich Lowry shortly after Lowry became editor at National Review.

I understand your complaint, but if anything it doesn’t answer the question. I’ve been in some crappy/seedy areas, but never alone.

I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt: this is probably not a place where that pride of cash-for-kids cubs normally hunt. In their own haunts everybody (the other beasts) knows better.

“Some people, and sadly, in particular, white women, still believe that this does not happen or cannot happen to them.”

That may apply to white women who live nowhere near the welfare reservations, but in my area white women in particular are careful - they are easier to rob. We’re directly across a moat (the Passaic River) from the NEwark NJ welfare reservation, and directly east of us, across another moat (the Hackensack River), lies Jersey City.
