Posted on 11/26/2013 1:16:35 PM PST by NotYourAverageDhimmi
I remember the summer of 2011, a story about a crowd of teenagers at the Wisconsin State Fair randomly attacking fairgoers went viral as a sign of a burgeoning race war. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel fanned the flames, calling the teenagers "rampaging youths" who caused "mob-like disturbances":
"Then around the closing time of 11 p.m., witnesses told the Journal Sentinel, dozens to hundreds of black youths attacked white people as they left the fair, punching and kicking people and shaking and pounding on their vehicles."
"Dozens to hundreds"? When witnesses can't differentiate between 24 and 100, should we really rely on them to speculate whether a crime was racially motivated? One of the reasons the story gained so much traction could have stemmed from the fact that Milwaukee is the most segregated city in the country, and it validated white residents' fear that their black neighbors are dangerous.
Now, the false trend story of black mob violence has cropped up again, as it seems to do annually, in conservative media outlets. (McKay Coppins wrote about this phenomenon in BuzzFeed last year.) The new scare is the "knockout game," in which black youths supposedly attack innocent people just for fun. Conservative pundits decry the MSM for suffering from political correctness and whitewashing crimes perpetrated by black people, but a more reasonable explanation for why most media outlets aren't devoting round-the-clock coverage to the knockout game is thatsorry, Sean Hannitythere is no hard data showing that it's a trend.

Alright, then explain why Travon is on the news 24/7, 365 days a year and black on white crime is never covered, except by local news? I know of a lynching and a gang shooting that occurred in a city near me that got nowhere near the Travon coverage.
Pretty simple to explain. The same Leftist higher-ups that manipulate the media message being put out to Americans gave a marching order for media outlets to make the Trayvon case all about evil white racism vs. the poor, innocent black victim. In both instances the marching orders continue the same false narrative that pervades America -- that white people are racists while black people are innocent victims.
Yeah, its a myth all right and the .40 S&W in my inside pocket, well, that’s just a rumor.
Sorry Marxist Mainstream Media, Polar Bear hunting exists and it is Black Racists hunting Whitey.
What next, Obamacare is working fine?
Pray America is Waking
The phenomenon will be stopped quickly, however. Charles Bronsons are all over the place now.
Who are you going to believe, the Ministry of Truth or your own lying eyes?”
Not true, happened to 2 reporters in VA Beach (Daily Star?) right after St. Trayvon was brutally slain. They shut up and didn’t report it.
“Ja, zah stories about zah Juden going on boxcars reported by unreliable sources is to be ignored. It is verboten to mention it.”
Wait a second, isn’t Milwaukee also one of the most *liberal* cities in the US?
*Im sure that the stitches to close his head back up and multiple surgeries to fix his arm were just figments of his imagination.*
For you to mention reality is considered racist by the Leftist media and government
I think it was 1957 or 1958 and they held the Boy Scout Jamboree at the LA Coliseum that summer.
A group of us were walking along when three black dooshes (yeah, I know I spelled the word incorrectly. I do it on purpose when I have no respect and total disdain for the individual(s) I use it to describe)jumped one of our troop who was off to one side and away from our group.
White boys knew how to fight back then. We cleaned their clocks.
This crap has been going on for something like 60 years now.
Time to start fighting back.
Admitting any wrong shows how screwed up they are. That’s why they have to HIDE THE DECLINE. When the truth is revealed their toast and they know it.
Post of the thread lol
My incedent happened not long after the Watts riots. Black welfare families were moved into Pomona (where the fair is located) by HUD. Totally ruined Pomona forever.
Pomona still has a high crime, gang and murder rate to this day. Anyone from around these parts knows exactly what I’m talking about.
Do not believe your eyes. Your eyes seeing sights is a trick of the TEA Party or George Bush.
You will see what the Government Supremacists tell you to see!
*a bit of the old ultra-violence*
I can almost hear “Singing in the Rain”
Through my work in fast-paced and highly demanding newsrooms, I have honed reporting and editing skills that set me apart from the pack. I have experience at the local, state and national level - from covering national education policy on the Hill, to breaking news from the Wisconsin state Capitol during the run-up to Gov. Scott Walker's recall election, to managing a newsroom of more than 75 student journalists. My talent, know-how and challenge-driven work ethic are rooted in a passion to tell impactful stories.
And Ive gained invaluable professional experience working for renowned outlets such as Bloomberg News, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and The Chronicle of Higher Education.
