Racial Violence and Denial in Schenectady

Racial Violence and Denial in Schenectady

Posted By Colin Flaherty On October 9, 2013 @ 12:12 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | 5 Comments

It is easy to see why the powers that be want to keep a lid on several episodes of black mob violence in downtown Schenectady, NY.

This is the same kind of violence that caused people to flee places like Schenectady, Flint, Wilmington and hundreds of other cities around the country. Replacing vibrant, small town centers of commerce with hollow, dangerous hulks.

Now that investors are back, trying to rebuild Schenectady, the last thing they want is anyone talking about a large group of black people assaulting patrons in the shiny new downtown movie theater.

But that is what happened: The beat down. And the denial.

It took a while for the story to come out, but in June, an unidentified 46-year-old man and his two daughters were watching White House Down when a large group of black people in the theater started making a lot of noise.

The Times-Union picked up the story, minus the racial details, about the movie-goers who:

ran up and down the aisle yelling and banging a plastic garbage can near the entrance to the theater.

As the credits rolled at the end of the movie, one of the young men accosted the victim from behind, punching him in the head, District Attorney William Sanderson said. A second male did the same thing, he said.

After the second punch, the man stood and blocked the third punch before the whole group attacked him, the prosecutor said.

They knocked the man to the ground, repeatedly punched and kicked him and dragged him on his knees, Sanderson said.

When one of the victim’s 15-year-old twin daughters tried to help her father, she also was hit. One of the assailants ran off with her cellphone.

It’s unclear how long the assault lasted, but no one inside the theater tried to help the victim, Sanderson said.

The victim suffered a concussion, a broken nose and an eye injury that is causing vision problems, said the Times-Union.  “The concussion has caused him headaches, memory loss, and difficulty in his day-to-day work,” said Sanderson.

Eight black people were arrested and charged with assault after the victim’s daughter identified several of the alleged assailants as people who also attended her high school.

In a separate story, the Times-Union spoke to several business leaders who were “irked” the newspaper reported the mob violence. Even if the local media did neglect to report the mob was black — and part of a pattern of black mob violence around the country documented in White Girl Bleed a Lot: The return of racial violence and how the media ignore it.

The business leaders say the incident was isolated and their downtown is safe. That got the full attention of at least one resident at the paper’s comments section:

The gang assault crime by these thugs is bad enough but the other crime is how this story was buried by local officials and the Sch’dy Daily Gazette (the incident took place in June!). It’s all about protecting the reputation of the “little miracle” which is Downtown Sch’dy (forget about the victims here).

Shame on the Daily Gazette, Metroplex, City of Sch’dy (leadership not the cops who responded quickly) and Democrat party bosses for shutting this story down for so long.

A local woman reported a similar experience at another Schenectady movie theater:

They kept their cell phones on, talked loudly throughout the show, and cursed out anyone who tried to quiet them down.

We were actually afraid – so afraid that we would not look back in the theatre and wouldn’t even stop to use the restrooms afterwards. We couldn’t get out of there quick enough. It’s a sad place when people can’t enjoy a movie without being afraid of being attacked by lowlife thugs!!

One poster could have been referring to a 2010 incident in Florida when he reminded movie goers what can happen if you complain to the manager instead:

If other movie patrons refuse to be quiet and orderly, go out to the lobby and tell management to either restore order or give you a refund, as you can not hear and enjoy the movie, which is what you paid your $10 to do.

They will do ANYTHING to avoid giving someone a refund. Of course, if they toss the punks, your beat down will probably occur outside the theatre where they have been waiting for you.

In the Florida case, a Marine on leave from Iraq was watching Little Fockers with his wife when he asked a group of black people to stop making a lot of noise. They refused. The manager kicked them out.

They waited for the Marine, and attacked him and his wife in the parking lot after the movie ended. He was knocked out, she was assaulted, and the attack ended when a passer-by threatened the mob with a handgun. When police arrived, they estimated 300 black people were in the parking lot.

“Schenectady is no better or worse than other cities around the country,” said Taleeb Starkes, author of the Uncivil War: Confronting the subculture within the African American community. “That’s the point: There is an enormous amount of racial violence and denial in cities big and small throughout the country. And few know about it.”

Other movie theaters around the country have also experienced recent and large scale episodes of black mob violence.

In September, a “large-scale brawl” erupted in a Chicago movie theater because some people were “being too loud,” said the Patch.  The pictures and videos show everyone in this South Chicago movie theater was black.

Also in September, in Bakersfield, LiveLeak.com carries a video of a large group of black people fighting in a movie theater parking lot.

Also in September, in a suburb of Rochester, 400 to 500 black people fought in and out of a movie theater during a showing of Insidious, Chapter 2.  A local police officer  explained it all to News 8: “They have pent up energy from being scared in the movie theater and they come out and they don’t know what to do with that energy.”

Racial violence in Schenectady is hardly limited to movie theaters:  Several night clubs within a mile of the movie theater have also experienced black mob violence this year.  State officials suspended at least one liquor license after a large fight and gunfire at Club Illusion, a hip hop club that caters to black patrons.

The Times-Union sums it up: ‘The incident occurred less than a week after Club Illusion served a 15-day suspension and paid a $10,000 fine for eight previous Alcoholic Beverage Control violations that included fights, assaults and excessive noise at the bar.”

Has this gotten worse since Obama got elected?
Seems like blacks feel they are not going to be punished under hate crime laws so they are free to attack whomever they feel.
Thanks Obama....you done the work of the KKK.

There is a developing meme here, and across the nation: these black on white attacks go under reported or even unreported in newspapers and other media.

Eventually those being attacked, the white population, explodes into self-defense mode and defend themselves vigorously.

The public reports then label them “racists”. It already happens in the British press which is extremely biased in their reports of America.

One day, I believe, these people are going to go too far and encounter violence similar to the days of the Klan.

Some months back I spoke to a young man who had made 'policeman of the year' in a large city police department and asked him about this type of thing. He said it was common. And the worst of it was the white victim would often take months to recover... and sometimes never fully recover - while the black thugs (no, not his word, my word) would be back on the street within a week or two.

I suspect this happened to Jews in pre-World War II Germany - and that like whites today they stayed quiet - thinking if they were 'nice' it would stop. These knockout games - with 6 to 10 black men beating up one white man - aren't going to stop until we force them to stop.

“Even if the local media did neglect to report the mob was black”

It wasn’t neglect. It was a deliberate and intentional choice to suppress that information.

To the left, this is wonderful stuff. It means that the underclass is rising up against the ‘oppressors.’

I live very close to Schenectady and never heard a word about this. Proctors is a very nice historic theater where my kids used to have dance recitals and live performances. THat being said it would be poor judgement to go to a movie there, especially at night.

“downtown” = area controlled by black thugs and unsafe for white people.

There is no reason that ANY white person should ever do business with or associate in any way with any black person until the black community fixes their thug problem. It’s just not safe anymore. This results in avoiding the downtown areas like the plague.

The blacks have left “shoot first” as the white person’s only option.

I no longer go into the city. We didn’t even go to the local zoo this year as it’s in the city.

The big cities were hurt by white flight back in the 70’s and 80’s and have been trying to get us back from the suburbs ever since. But they refuse to fix the problem. Until these black thugs start getting executed for their crimes we have no interest in enabling them by being victims in their urban jungle.

Now instead of white flight, they have white “hoping the damn ghetto (which means just about anything within big city limits) burns to the ground with the loss of all who live there”.

I predict that shortly the KKK will come back into power because there are a huge number of folks like me, who had previously gotten rid of most of our racial biases, who have become racists due to the black’s behavior. We’ve got to band together in self defense

(And I’ll admit the whole thought still sickens me. But what else can we do. One white guy, even armed, cannot defend against 30 black thugs when he’s surprise attacked. And the blacks always attack in large groups by surprise.)

This has been going on for decades, since the 50's at least. If the attacks were ever covered by the press it was local, never national. The Corporate Media and the men that own 95% of it made sure of that. The only difference now is the internet makes all local stories global. In many cases the black thugs even film and broadcast themselves.

The Klan ? The Klan in their wildest dreams couldn’t have inflicted the damage and death that the Black community has done unto itself (thanks to a nice health dosage of leftism by White enablers and their Black race-baiting pimps).

I’m in Schenectady once a month, after driving through downtown and surrounding areas a few times, I go well out of my way to loop around to visit accounts from decent area points. There’s one account that’s in a really sketchy neighborhood, I make sure to visit there before noon and never on the first week of the month....everyone’s out.

I have lived in the city (Pittsburgh PA), and been attacked by mobs of blacks. Lucky for me, it was decades ago, or I would be more than “just” emotionally scarred. Happened when I was a liberal, and when relating the incidents, was called racist a skinhead, just for talking about the violence with “friends”.

It has escalated. Black racists know they have a Friend in the White House and a friend in the AG’s office.

How any intelligent non-black could have voted for this racist a second time around is beyond me.

They have pent up energy from being scared in the movie theater and they come out and they don’t know what to do with that energy.

Always excuses. No expectation of acting civilized. What a country this is becoming.

They waited for the Marine, and attacked him and his wife in the parking lot after the movie ended. He was knocked out, she was assaulted, and the attack ended when a passer-by threatened the mob with a handgun.

These naive movie patrons were disturbed by a large group of blacks making a planned disturbance in the theater....yet they stayed on till the end of the show.....although they didn't use the washroom on the way out (rolling my eyes).

I would have been headed out of those cinematic confines as fast as I could the minute I heard the first rumble....and I would have chalked the loss of ticket money up to a learning experience.

Pretty soon, the American public will be sequestered nights and weekends when it comes to entertainment....no theaters, no sports arenas, no local parks/shopping areas/malls, not even political rallys. Getting too dicey to even walk down Main Street in some places what with random shootings and even bomb incidents.

The ideological enemies of this Republic, the minority radicals and the criminal elements are steadily attaining their goals in paralyzing us, economically, socially and culturally to the point that we will soon be involuntarily/voluntarily confined to our homes where electronic devices of every kind will provide more than enough family entertainment.

Although, as an aside, one thing does tickle my funny bone in a perverse sort of way. It's the fact that when the public in droves ceases going out for a night at the movie theater, the arrogant, overpaid Hollywood production and acting cabal will be hoist by its own commie/liberal petard and will sink like a stone.

I got sucker punched by a black kid in a movie theater in Ithaca NY in 1964. Very similar to this situation — unruly black kids who wouldn’t be quiet, ask them to stop, get sucker-punched leaving the theater. Luckily they didn’t crush your skull when you were down in those days. It’s been almost 50 years and I remember it like it was yesterday. That was the first of several similar unpleasant encounters with blacks and I am as wary as can be to this day.

I’ve had enough of this. It’s ruining our country. We’ve spent decades walking on eggshells, cowering and saying, “I’m not a racist, but...” and “I know they’re not all like that...” and what do we get for it? Beaten, raped, killed, robbed, having to keep moving, enduring long commutes to escape them, not going out at night and not daring to complain about it, and on and on and on. And STILL we’re called evil racists. Enough. Since they’re going to call us names, anyway, it’s time to lose the fear of the “R word.” It’s time to tell blacks and their enablers that enough is enough and we’re sick of blacks acting like animals and we’re not going to put up with it anymore; that we’re going to shoot back and demand that these thugs be arrested and harshly punished! What have we got to lose? The situation is horrendous and just getting worse.

This exact same thing happened to us a couple of years ago in Mesquite TX at the AMC 30. Although, on the way out we passed several security people that were headed to that particular theatre, our evening was already ruined, and we left. I stick to the theatre in Rockwall now.

These knockout games - with 6 to 10 black men beating up one white man - aren't going to stop until we force them to stop.

If you must be alone in an "urban" zone, be armed, be alert, and be aggressive. If one sees a group of feral black youths, have the weapon out and cleared, shoot to kill as they approach.

To many "Affirmative Action Ani" on police forces are not taking the anti-white violence among blacks seriously. Worse, as we see from the "motorcycle gang" attack on the West Side Highway, some are actually joining in the violence, or doing nothing to prevent it.

911? Who the hell knows who or what will respond and when, if at all. Shoot. Take cover and keep shooting.
