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...

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.
