Football stars accused in racial Knockout Game
WND ^ | 11/07/2012 | Colin Flaherty

Posted on 11/30/2012 9:16:29 PM PST by Anila

NBC Sports had it half right: When he is on the football field, Lafayette Pitts is one of the most dangerous men in America.

Off the field, he is accused of being even more menacing. Pitts and two teammates from the University of Pittsburgh football team stand accused of playing the Knockout Game.

The Knockout Game is just one form of the black mob violence and lawlessness documented in more than 80 cities with more than 400 examples in the book “White Girl Bleed a Lot: The return of racial violence and how the media ignore it.”

Rules of the Knockout Game are pretty simple: Find a white guy. Make sure he looks defenseless. Punch him in the face. If he doesn’t get up, you win. And that is what three witnesses said the Pitt players did just a few weeks ago.

Last Friday, it was revealed they were charged with assault and conspiracy. Their court date is set for January. But that did not stop them from suiting up the next day for a big game against Notre Dame.

1. Violence is not a “game”.

2. As most recently demonstrated in Iraq; when secular violence sufficiently threatens the middle class- then it’s on.

3. At that juncture, there is no safe place for the thugs to hide.

4. They starve, convert or are exterminated.

Cities are choke points; don’t get caught on the wrong side of one.

The edge is firming up.

Regular working people will draw a line. It will be in the working class neighborhoods of the central city.

The surburban white bread will either retreat or reinforce- you will see some of both.

The plague will ultimately be contained.

can anyone imagine a white player not being immediately removed, kicked out of college, out of the town, and probably beaten up by other black players?....

and these players still got to play in the big game...

I unintentionally served as a bad example in a self-defense class, because in a street simulation, I wouldn’t change course when troublemakers headed my way.

A sucker punch or a knife, move much quicker than any concealed draw.

It’s up to you to be aware of your environment and avoid trouble.

If you’ve made one or two avoidance moves, and somebody is still headed your way, then, it’s time to fill your hand, BEFORE they get too close!

Not just whites (perhaps largely so), but rather neighborhoods need to work together to draw some lines.

I have mixed relatives- it ain’t all about color. It’s about stopping inner city thugs.

You don’t target by race- you circle the wagons by mutual interest.

Whites have the most waking up to do, though.

Here in the northeast few are still naive enough to believe the TV when they show certain groups in traditional “American” roles; after lecturing southerners about the evils of their ways Yankees learned quickly and quarantined the problem. Anyone beaten by a gang of blacks in the northeast was probably trying to buy drugs or prostitutes; nobody else would get caught unawares.

Sad but true...

See # 20; living around Newark NJ (in suburbs populated by people who fled or were chased out of Newark 40 years ago), the whites have woken up. They have stopped subsidizing the cities in terms of police & fire protection, but will die before they ever let you close an abortion clinic in Newark.

Remember when a couple hundred black youts were assaulting folks on Chicago’s lakefront couple of summers ago? The city claimed they had to close down the beach because it was too hot. If it wasn’t for local talk radio they might have gotten away with it.

Thing is go to North avenue beach. There are lots of bad ass white kids down there too. Lots of jocks. I don’t think the black youts made it that far.

Weird, isn’t it?

The Scotch-Irish have a tradition in the cities back east, in the Appalachians, and in the Missouri Ozarks and surrounds (my paternal grandmothers family).

Seems the Celts and Gaels are ready to scrap wherever they are and for whatever reason...

We need that tribal fierceness now, but for the right reasons.

Back in the day (regardless of how much our people romanticize it), the dirtbags mugging you in NYC would be our Celtic forefathers. I’m not proud (or ashamed) of it; that is just the way it was. It never descended to the animal hatred in the cities today; all of us knew (Catholic or Protestant) that we would meet God someday, and have to give account.

I’m even more close-minded and tribal than in my younger days, because I know the only people I can really count on are my tribe.

In my town of 40K people, which had been Scottish and Irish (at one pont supporting 5 fish-and-chip joints), the private clubs used to be divided along sectarian lines. When “whiteness” was criminalized, those barriers disappeared and the clubs consolidated into a smaller number of places where just being from the British Isles was good enough (they circled the wagons). Obama has harmed race relations irreparably, but he “didn’t start the fire”.

While the northeast is liberal in many regards, it is one of the most segregated parts of the country; even the support for abortion isn’t out of sympathy for Sandra Fluke - it is to ensure that Newark NJ never stops providing abortion to those who “need” it.

And if by some miracle it is prosecuted, it won’t be as a hate crime, because the victim was white. I don’t agree with “hate crime” prosecutions, but as long as we have them, whites need to make use of them

Thank you for one of the intelligent comments I have seen about this.

The left would love to see bunches of white people targeting others because of their color. They have been attempting to gin up a race war for a long time because it is in their interests to keep us at each other.

About 30 miles away from where this attack happened a white college student and star football player, walking home from a bar, was beaten to death by 6 blacks.

Even though the perps are at large, and there was an eye witness who escaped the attack, all media reports in a Google search of this story CENSORED the race of the attackers.

The predominately white college, located downtown, dates back to the 1700s and the town, Washington Pennsylvania, has lost half of its population since 1960, probably due to white flight. If you read between the lines it is obvious that the neighborhoods near the college have become much more “diverse” in that time:

” many students avoid leaving campus altogether or only go off campus when someone can drive them. He described some neighbors as “hostile” to students, and said that residents occasionally drive through to taunt students.”

http://blackracismandracehatred.blogspot.com/2012/11/unprovoked-brutal-attack-on-pittsburgh.html

Now imagine if a black college student had been beaten to death by 6 white thugs. Do you think the National Media would have censored the race of the tugs and ignored this story if the races were reversed? Of course not. It would have been trumpeted to the high heavens like the Trayvon Martin story.

BTW, to my knowlege, Eric “my people” Holder has not sent 10 FBI agents to investigate the motives of these thugs who beat this white victim to death for racial motives like he did to investigate George Zimmerman for racial motives.

The operative word in “The Corrupt Liberal Media” is “Corrupt”

Liberalism has killed journalism.

Thanks for the post.

When this subject comes up a lot of freepers, quite humanly, respond by asking how the thugs will enjoy bringing a fist to a gunfight.

The problem, as you point out, is that for you to shoot them first you would have to draw and fire before he starts his punch. When you don’t even really know he was going to throw a punch.

Which would mean you, a white man, would be arrested for shooting an unarmed black man who had made no move to attack you. Good luck beating that rap.

The only way to avoid this situation is to not come into range. Or possibly to draw your weapon and let them see it, which means of course they won’t come into range. But that is itself illegal.

I’ve never seen any recent action movies in theaters, but occasionally I see snips of them on TV. It brings tears to my eyes to see patriotic blacks selflessly laying down their lives for their country, demonstrating to their white comrades true character. I guess I just didn’t know about this side of them; in Newark NJ I never see American flags waving.

Fair enough.

As the article itself says, they pick out people who look vulnerable to prey on.

I would suggest it is probable even a person who carries concealed is a lot less likely to be attacked. Such a person is likely to have subtly different body language that tends to lead the perps to pick somebody else. IOW, the type of person who carries concealed is also the type of person who is not an ideal victim for other reasons.

The thing that has always bothered me the most about this “game” is not so much the crime itself as the mentality of those who choose to play it. How can any group of “men” take pride in a group assault on a weaker and unsuspecting victim? If I engaged in such behavior, which is impossible for me to even imagine, perhaps while drunk, I’d be too ashamed of myself the next day to meet anybody’s eyes.

I can understand the criminal ethos of boldness and initiative. But taking pride in attacking those who are weaker? It’s like taking pride in abuse of your children. Who thinks that way?

Hmm, maybe. It depends on how they define 'country'? And what exactly they are fighting for? I'd be willing to bet that those who would align themselves with being "African-American", as blacks first don't/aren't fighting for the same thing.

There are a lot of areas in this country where a DA or prosecutor would not even prosecute a white person for shooting a minority if there is any slightest bit of self-defense inferred, especially if the DA or top prosecutor is an elected position

You see these prosecutions in liberal cities and jurisdictions

In my county (my FR name), we are dealing with the Zimmerman case. He would have never been prosecuted had it not been for our Liberal GOPer Governor and Atty Gen pandering to Black Racists. There is no doubt that George Zimmerman shot in self-defense

We need to stop trying to rationalize and White Guilt Liberal-explain away Black on White crime. It exists, and we need to ensure that the rights of White folks are not violated...including when they choose to defend themselves.
Prosecutors who willy-nilly side with Blacks and Minorities need to be handled civiliy and criminally

“Who thinks that way?”

A Top 5 list for your consideration:
5) Violent sociopaths with low self-esteem who feel empowered by bullying the weak.
4) Juveniles in adult bodies who will do whatever they can get away with, and have no thought of consequences.
3) Irrational, low IQ, thugs so consumed with racist hatred that they believe their actions justified by past wrongs (real and imagined) committed by others.
2) National Socialists.
1) “Student-atheletes” on full scholarship.

IMHO, prosecutors who do anything but seek true justice according to the law should be tarred, feathered and ran out of town on a rail.
