Michael Brown Shooting Excuse For Blacks To Riot
So let me get this straight. Michael Brown reportedly wrestles with a St. Louis County police officer while the officer is still in the squad car and ends in Brown being shot once from inside the police cruiser and multiple times outside of the cruiser resulting in Brown’s death. And to teach the police a lesson, blacks burn and loot the few stores that are available to them in their neighborhood!
Add to that, the victim is immediately heralded as nothing short of being apostolic. Well, isn’t that the way it always is?
Permit me to be the skunk at this picnic of “looting, violence, and the white man is out to get us”, because I’ve seen this act before. A young black person gets shot by a police officer or an honest citizen defending themselves, and the next thing you know the entire “extort money, blame whites and blame the police” nation comes out of the woodwork.
Indications are that the rap sheet floating around the internet doesn’t belong to the Michael Brown who was killed as he attacked a Ferguson, Missouri police officer. But, specific to that point, how about the media tells us just what kind of saint Brown really was before we take the word of those assigning cherubic qualities to him? We should be told if he has a rap sheet, and if so, what crimes he committed and what if any crimes he has been convicted of. The media would certainly been bleating about any black marks on the record of the police officer.
Supposedly, he wanted to attend college. But let’s be honest; that means absolutely nothing in the broad scheme of things because in the zeitgeist of today, a stale piece of bread can get into college and get a student loan to pay for it.
Am I being hypercritical? You bet I am. I refuse to sugarcoat the truth. I’ve seen this act too many times in the past. Earlier this year, I wrote of the race-mongering marplots who were fanning the flames under the caldron of “white people are out to kill blacks.” (Blacks Are The Hunters Not The Hunted; 2/28/14; newdailyrant.wpengine.com) In that article I referenced a headline claiming that black parents cannot protect their children from a racist America that encourages the murdering of blacks. But the sad truth is that black parents cannot protect their children from other blacks!
The outcries of “they’re out to get us” in the aftermath of the Brown shooting, is at best incoherent hyperbole, if not outright chthonic idiocy, when you consider that approximately 8,000 blacks are murdered by other blacks every year. But the intellectually dishonest black intelligentsia would rather dismiss that troubling factoid.
In my article titled: “Appalling Disregard For Black Life By Other Blacks,” (5/27/14; newdailyrant.wpengine.com) I wrote: “Black race-mongers can decry the reality of the pandemic of black-on-black crime, but hour after hour, city after city, the one constant [is] that blacks [are] ruthlessly murdering one another. … Blacks are killing one another and they are doing so on a level commensurate with wild animals. That cannot be blamed on white people; it cannot be blamed on slavery; it can only be blamed on a total disregard for life based on a disregard for modernity.”
The media ignores the crime rate in the neighborhoods these people live in. It goes unreported publicly, but this same media refuses to enter these neighborhoods without armed escorts, and when they do, they only enter them if there has been an incident that they can prostitute for ratings.
I am incensed that Eric Holder would send the FBI to investigate whether Brown’s civil rights were violated. When was the last time Holder had the FBI investigate a crime to determine if the civil rights of whites were violated in the aftermath of blacks selectively attacking whites? When has Holder ordered the FBI in to investigate civil rights violations on behalf of whites who have been murdered or maimed by blacks? Specific to said point, Obama and Holder have ignored all requests from the family of the British tourist murdered by a black thug in Florida. But that is consistent with what former Justice Department Attorney, J. Christian Adams wrote about the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department under Holder and Obama. In an interview I had with Adams several years ago, Adams said Holder had made it clear, that he was only interested in civil rights cases in which the victim was black. That gives all new meaning to “liberty and justice for all.”
Blacks like Holder, Obama, Sharpton, et al and their media sock puppets are quick to cry foul whenever there is an opportunity for them to cash in and/or further divide America based on skin color. But they ignore the day-to-day violence and murders of blacks committed against other blacks.
In the aftermath of a speech I gave this past July 4th at Gettysburg Battlefield from the same spot President Lincoln gave his famous address, I said: Blacks have elevated the killing of one another to pandemic levels. In Chicago over the same July 4th weekend that I gave my speech, 80 people were shot resulting in 12 fatalities, nearly all of whom were black. … It gets even worse. According to Rich Lowry writing for National Review: “Overall, according to Chicago magazine, the rate of nonfatal gunshot injury in Chicago was 46.5 per 100,000 from 2006 to 2012. But it was only 1.62 per 100,000 for whites. For blacks, it was 112.83 per 100,000. For black males, 239.77, and for black males aged 18–34, 599.65, or ‘a staggering one in 200.’” That’s one in every 200 black males between the ages of 18-24 being shot. Blacks can hate whites and blame former President George W. Bush, but neither George W. Bush nor white people are roaming the streets and mini-marts murdering black teenagers. It’s not whites selling the drugs that are destroying black families and black neighborhoods. It is not whites who are pimping black women drug addicts. It is not whites breaking into black homes. It is their black neighbors and the black hoodlums who look exactly just like them and who live next door to them.
Why didn’t Holder have the FBI investigate potential civil rights violations in those situations? When was the last time we heard even a peep from Obama, Sharpton, or the media pursuant to the daily murder toll of blacks murdering other blacks?
To compound things, blacks think they are sending a message when they burn down and loot the stores and businesses in their own neighborhoods. That brilliant behavior results in their having to do without merchandise, paying higher prices, and losing the few jobs that were available in the neighborhood. Do they think they are teaching whitey a lesson or is it that they are using any excuse to steal?
Why doesn’t Holder have the FBI investigate blacks on Twitter who are posting tweets encouraging other blacks to do violence to whites in the aftermath of the Brown shooting? Why isn’t the FBI investigating the blacks tweeting that blacks should loot the homes of whites?
I am sick of blacks crying foul at the first opportunity. Like it or not, blacks are their own worst enemies. They and the media are silent as great numbers of blacks commit violent crimes against other blacks on an hour-to-hour basis. But give them the opportunity to blame whitey or the police and they show up on cue.
Which brings me to a couple thoughts in closing. The FBI investigation will include taking depositions and interviewing other blacks who were at the scene or in the area when Brown was shot and killed. In what scenario does anyone believe the greater number of them are going to tell the truth? The people that will be interviewed will include the very same people who lie to the police on a regular basis and now their word is to be accepted as gospel? What happens if they are found to be lying? Will they be prosecuted or will that be swept under the rug?
It also seems curious to me that the police officer hasn’t been identified as “white” which suggests the officer may be black. That suggests the outcry will be “police brutality” instead of white racism. That said, where are these people when homicide detectives are searching for clues to the corpse(s) they are investigating in those very neighborhoods? How many of these people step forward to help solve those crimes?
I’ll state what the police departments cannot and that is: “Police have a responsibility to protect and serve the communities they are assigned to, but they also have a responsibility to their families and loved ones to return home safely and some days that means there will be a few less bad guys sharing our oxygen.”
No doubt, I’ll be accused of being harsh, and ignorant blacks will have a field day castigating me with the usual asinine name-calling. They will make empty threats; but the truth is that tragically, the behavior of many blacks suggest they are more adapted to living in the wild than living in civilized society. They harbor anger and animus against everything and everyone but the person they look at in the mirror each day.[adsanity id=11817 align=alignnone /]
