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.

Speaking of twisted logic, did anyone follow this logic ?
Right wing media, DISREGARD what the left wing media says.
Disregard the order NOW.
Good news, the old, tired, beat-up “racist card” has been DECLINED.
Actually, San Francisco is the most segregated city in the country. Nary a black to be seen from the Embarcadero to the Cliff House.
Someone even wrote a whole book full of examples.
Fourty years ago, Walter Chronkite could lie to the American public and they would believe him. These days “most” of the population is skeptical of media claims.
We assumed leftists would either say it’s not happening or they would come up with false ‘equivalents’... Seems they’re going to do both...
Yea, tell that to my daughter. She wasn’t knocked out, just followed by a few black teens who ran up and yanked her hair back.
Just a game.
A very mentally sick person and NO, I am not joking. I have witnessed it first hand by dating a liberal. The very thought of being an individual and free upsets them. Best I could derive, they know deep down they are damaged goods and by extension wish to drag us freedom lovers down while reserving their own right to tell us what to do; OR ELSE (via Government). Truly twisted souls.
I guess all these videos of young black males attacking strangers are just made up then.
Be sure to tell the propagandist what you think:
blacks did rampage a the wisconsin state fair.
depending on your vantage point and when you observed the mob moving, from where you are, different nuber accounts make total sense.
A bit over a year ago there was an incident in St. Cloud, Minnesota, whereby a young white man, age 20, was walking two young women home late at night. They were minding their own business when a car drove by and a man jumped out, and then proceeded to knock the white guy down with a single punch. Then the perp got back in the car and rode away.
The victim was Colton Gleason, who was taken by ambulance to the local hospital where he died the next day from a massive brain injury. The perp was Jesse Jean Smithers, a 17 year-old, and biracial kid.
St. Cloud has a very small black population. The rationale for the attack was not defined as a racial incident or as the “knockout” game. Still it is difficult to not associate this incident with the recent stories that are all over the news. The kid was sentenced to a long term in jail for second degree murder.
I suspect the real number of cases like these are a lot more frequent than we all realize. Towns like St. Cloud are medium size, and not accustomed to dealing with racial incidents like this. Many are not reported as black on white crime at all.
Karma dictates that this Emma Roller person will be... ahem... rolled by 24 to 100 Amish yutes.
Police Unsure if Random Attacks Are Rising Threat or Urban Myth
“Yea, tell that to my daughter. She wasnt knocked out, just followed by a few black teens who ran up and yanked her hair back. Just a game.”
These attempts to minimize these attacks by the media should reinforce the warning that if you are attacked, no action will be taken and it will be swept under the rug. There is no reason for whites to voluntarily subject themselves to exposure to our unassimilated permanent underclass; while I sympathize with those who had no choice but to be in harms way, anyone in these areas that doesn’t need to be is learning some hard life lessons.
“When it becomes widely known and recognized, people will start looking for it and defending themselves.”
This will also drive white flight; I remember how the lawlessness during David Dinkins’ tenure as NYC mayor transformed northeastern NJ and nearby NY state with a flood of whites (including some very wealthy people). We’re hoping for a repeat under DeBlasio.
While the government tries to force integration with Section 8 housing (akin to the Quartering Act that led up to the American Revolution), various races (not just whites) form their own enclaves to repel the wilding people.
Keen observation - I believe the forced Section 8 housing in suburbia has the exact same motivation as the Quartering Act.
These people are the de facto shock troops of the left, demoralizing their “enemy”.
