Facts the Media Will Never Discuss

2020 June 18
by bc3b

Since I couldn’t say it any better, I just included the entire column. You can read the entire piece or speed read the bold headlines:

“Black Lives Matter.” That’s their mantra, their battle cry, the idol erected by a gang of neo-Marxist, racist thugs who are trying to club us into submission to their vision. Democrat Congressmen get on their knees. Corporate America pays homage, as well as coin of the realm. If groveling reflected athletic ability, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell would be the starting quarterback for the New England Patriots

Statues are toppled and movies banned. I wonder when the book-burning will start.

At times it seems like nothing matters but some black lives. Regarding the rioting and mayhem that have swept the country since the horrific killing of George Floyd, here are a few things which apparently don’t matter to The New York TimesWashington Post, CNN and the rest of the media conspiracy– given the amount of attention they’ve received:

  1. Police Lives – In a few days in late May and early June: 4 officers were shot in St. Louis; an officer was shot in the head in Las Vegas; two officers were shot in Richmond; an officer was run down in the Bronx, and another in Buffalo. Thanks to the rage generated by agitators, the media and Democratic politicians, the lives of cops – the people we depend on most to protect us and our families – are the most vulnerable.
  2. The lives of 7,000 black Americans murdered each year by other black Americans. Last year, there were 492 homicides in Chicago. Overwhelmingly, the victims and perpetrators were black. Only three of these deaths involved the police. Black men killing black men? Business as usual. Police killing black men (whether or not the homicides are justified) – institutional racism!
  3. Jewish lives – In rioting in Los Angeles and adjacent areas, synagogues and Jewish-owned businesses were looted and defaced with anti-Semitic graffiti, in a way reminiscent of Kristallnacht.  Black Lives Matter is virulently anti-Israel, calling Israel an “apartheid state,” claiming it commits “genocide” and demanding a total boycott. ANTIFA is also part of the Boycott, Sanctions and Divestment movement. Neither group has ever demanded an end to Palestinian terrorism. Call it professional courtesy.
  4. The Real George Floyd — the man, not the media-created myth of a “Gentle Giant” – The real George Floyd had a record stretching back over 25 years, including criminal trespass, aggravated assault, theft and various drug-related offenses. He was recently released from Texas State Prison, after serving a 5-year sentence for robbery. During a home invasion in 2007, the Gentle Giant pointed a gun at the stomach of a pregnant black woman while trying to rob her. When he died, Floyd had fentanyl and methamphetamines in his system. None of this, of course, justifies his death. But neither does it make him martyr material.
  5. The absurdity of charges of institutional racism —  America has an $8 -billion a year equity, inclusion and diversity industry to overcome a non-existent problem. Almost 60% of blacks are in the middle or upper-middle class. They’re invisible to the media because they’re not rioting and looting. Do blacks represent a disproportionate share of arrests? How could it possibly be otherwise, with African Americans, who are 13% of the U.S. population, responsible for more than half of all murders and robberies?
  6. The rate of fatherlessness in the black community fuels the rage. – In America, 57% of Black children grow up without their biological father, more than twice the rate among whites (20.7%). Most spend their childhood in a home with their mother and a succession of her boyfriends. This has a significant impact on the school-dropout rate, drug use and early sexual activity. Yet to talk about it, we are told, is being critical of black parenting, hence racist. So we simply ignore it and blame the pathologies in the black community on institutionalized racism.
  7. The crime wave that accompanied the George Floyd protests – Marches and sermons at funerals make good visuals. The accompanying carnage and looting were largely unseen: burglaries up 220% in Minneapolis (May 26 to June 1) over the same period last year.  In Los Angeles, murders were up 250% (May 31-June 6). In Chicago, May 31st  was the city’s bloodiest day in almost 60 years – 18 dead (almost three times the body count of the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre). Not to worry; none of them involved a white cop with his knee on the neck of a black man in custody, therefore all were irrelevant.
  8. Black Lives Matter’s ideology – BLM doesn’t just want to get rid of the police, but prisons too. The group is anti-capitalist (“black people will never achieve liberation under the current global racialized capitalist system”) and anti-family (“We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure.”) BLM is part black nationalism, part cultural Marxism and part Five-Year plans.
  9.  The case for civilian gun ownership – Little wonder that the cities hit hardest by riots and looting – New York, Chicago and Los Angeles among them — have made it practically impossible for ordinary people to legally possess firearms. Other than the police, practically the only ones who have them are criminals. Gun control advocates used to tell us: “You don’t need guns. If someone breaks into your home, call the police.” Would that be before or after law enforcement is defunded, or police budgets are slashed to the bone?

 

Again, given their invisibility, none of this matters. Democrats seek to harvest votes by pandering furiously. A deranged media want to use the chaos to defeat Trump. In the urban anarchy/nihilism now upon us, reality is the first casualty – but far from the last.

    Not sure how valid this is, but I have read articles before about Chief Justice John Roberts’ unusual adoptions:

    Good article.
    I would give this a demerit: “since the horrific killing of George Floyd”
    The latest evidence says “death” not “killing” and the “horrific” has really been replaced by “expected” in the sense of drugs, obesity and so on which triggered his death.

    Also, I think the guy could have worked in a mention that these cities have been dominated by the Dem Party for decades and generations.

    But, yeah, good article.

    BLM is the Democrats way to leverage people into submission in their Cultural revolution. They don’t think black lives matter. Just look at how they run our cities.

    All lives matter. And for the mentally defective who don’t get that includes black lives, GFY.

    Probing question.

    Generally when there is a clash Right v Left the PoPo typically restrain the Right. (ex: Proud Boys in Portland) So what happens when the PoPo are quitting en-mass in many of the urban cores? Would the Right un-restricted do the deed?

    “Would the Right un-restricted do the deed?”~~ When the commie bastards invade the burbs and rural areas, the rules of engagement will be shoot and shovel

    1 – Zero surprise there, been hearing the same for years.

    2 – In a way the DA is doing everything possible to see that in the end, after all the legal fees the officer will walk (idk if that’s intentional or not). Avoiding usual due process, and of course the over-charging him with murder which he’ll likely never be able to be convicted of. A clown no doubt to be sure though.

    14 – Probably not, remember heads you lose, tails they win. 😉
    15 – I said the same to someone when they asked why what happens downtown isn’t happening in our area – “Because they know damn well they’ll be shot, so they stay in the city where the po-po and city government will cater to them”.

    1 – BTW at what point do we just start ignoring SCOTUS decisions, the left has been doing that for two decades plus now, they just pretend whatever they didn’t like doesn’t exists and then just take on any new lawsuits over it on, and drag those out for another 1/2 decade all the while installing judges to rule their way if and when cases gets to them.

    “The decision of the supreme court has fell still born, and they find that it cannot coerce Georgia to yield to its mandate.” – or the usual short hand but technically inaccurate – “John Marshall has made his decision; now let him enforce it..”

    Reading this dissent Thomas all but calls Roberts a pussy who isn’t up to the chief justice job, which of course is the truth.

    Second video on this page, hour and half of all the body cams involved.

    https://davidharrisjr.com/steven/full-bodycam-video-reveals-atlanta-police-being-patient-respectful-with-rayshard-brooks-video/

    suggest you grab it quick and snatch it to local hard drive before it gets disappeared as most of them do.

    Note this from the article:
    ==> “We remind and ask our community to be mindful when using this equipment in a recreational manner. These acts may send an unintended message,” the police statement said. “We recognize especially at this time, that any ropes on or attached to trees, limbs or other objects can be associated with hate crimes and racial violence.”

    The local media in the Bay Area went nuts until the man who put the EXERCISE EQUIPMENT up came forward. Local”leaders” stoked the fires of “Racism!” during that whole time. Why didn’t the police ask people to WAIT FOR YHE FACTS before letting the outrage mobs loose?

    25 BC,

    Every single “black” and half “black” woman on the short list has massive flaws. Especially with putting the brother man in jail.

    If that list is real…

    In admit I was wrong about Jeff Sessions, thinking he would be a good attorney general, But, I always questioned why Trump would go with a nut-job like John Bolton.
