Democrat rioters gun down two more cops

Mostly-peaceful domestic terrorists.

Two police officers were reportedly shot in Louisville during Wednesday night’s riots.

The crowd scattered after several loud bangs shortly after 8:30 PM.

NBC News later reported that the police department confirmed that two officers had been shot. The officers were reportedly transported to Louisville University Hospital. Fox 43 News also reported that two officers had been shot.

Then there’s this:

And now…

Armed militia members are marching into Louisville.

Oh boy.

Via Anonymous, the militia has been identified as members of the “National Patriotic Defense Team” a right-wing militant group that operates in Kentucky.

A “right-wing militant group.” Hey, ain’t they all? Nary a mention of the violent mob’s political leanings to be seen, natch.

But who the hell cares? Nobody should be either surprised or the least bit bothered by the blatant propagandizing at this late date; libmedia “reporters” are just additional players in the game now. And they’re every bit as much the enemy as the rest of them are.

Good hunting, boys.

Tragedy, or atrocity?

Just sickening.

Jake Gardner — awaiting arrest after a grand jury in Omaha indicted him last week — shot himself outside a medical clinic in suburban Portland, Oregon, two law enforcement officials told The World-Herald. Police in Hillsboro, Oregon, found the 38-year-old former Marine dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound about 12:20 p.m.

Gardner’s attorneys, Stu Dornan and Tom Monaghan, said Gardner shot himself on the day he had said he would surrender in connection with manslaughter and three other felony charges stemming from the May 30 confrontation that led to the death of 22-year-old James Scurlock.

Now, both men are dead. By the same hand.

Sunday, Dornan and Monaghan blamed Gardner’s apparent suicide on a cocktail of behavioral health problems stemming from head trauma he experienced during military service; the belief that people were out to kill him; and an “incessant rush to judgment” by social media jockeys.

Dornan said Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine — who defeated Dornan in 2006 to become county attorney — had made the right call in ruling Gardner’s actions justified. Gardner had claimed that Scurlock had him in a chokehold and wouldn’t let go, despite Gardner’s repeated pleas to “get off me.” At the end of the 18-second struggle, Gardner switched the gun to his left hand and fired over his shoulder, killing Scurlock.

Grand jurors, under the guidance of a special prosecutor, ruled out self-defense as a justification.

Bottom line, Dornan and Monaghan said, Gardner had lost his bars (a landlord ended his lease after the shooting), his home, his livelihood. And he was about to lose his freedom. Add in behavioral health concerns, Dornan said, and suicide was not a surprise, even though his attorneys fully expected him to turn himself in Sunday night. Monaghan said Gardner did not leave a suicide note.

“I had the opportunity to talk with Mr. Gardner before his return, and he was really shook up,” Dornan said. “The grand jury indictment was a shock to him, it was a shock to us, it was a shock to many people.”

As a monstrous abuse of any reasonable concept of justice, shocking would certainly be one way to describe it, yeah. I can think of others. And so can Ace.

The Omaha Man Who Shot a BLM Attacker in a Videotaped Open-and-Shut Case of Self-Defense Was Indicted to Appease the Mob.
That Man Has Now Committed Suicide.
Ace

BLM will attack you, and unless you allow yourself to be murdered or to have your head bashed in and left with brain damage, the agents of the state will then act as BLM’s enforcement officers and imprison you for defying the illegal demands of BLM.

It’s now legal to resist a police officer but it’s illegal to resist a BLM rioter and street thug?

Had enough yet?

We’ll find out soon enough, I guess. As Ace goes on to say, this poor Marine was pretty much murdered by the prosecutor on behalf of Burn Loot Murder. There damned sure ought to be a steep price paid for that, and I mean with a quickness, too. Otherwise, we’ll know that no, we apparently have NOT had enough just yet. And will be getting more of it, too.

Update! Herschel with the skinny on our New Rules.

War has been declared on you, your family, and your possessions.  You’ve seen enough instances like this to know how it’s going to go down.

You behave according to traditional Western and Biblical jurisprudence, and then the unthinkable happens…

This all happens if you use traditional TTPs to defend yourself and your family, even attempting to warn rioters with warning shots because you don’t really want to harm anyone, under the assumption that America is still a civilized and just society, not at war with itself.

Bottom line: in Amerika v2.0, if you’re white, you have NO right to defend yourself, under any circumstances whatsoever. Your one and only “right” is to passively submit to any and all abuse—verbal, physical, or Other—that your Approved Minority Group attacker may decide to deal out. Call it “reparational justice,” let’s say. Please don’t forget to humbly express profoundest gratitude to your “oppressed” tormenter for enlightening you, and for helping you to “evolve” into a far better person.

You now live in New Sarajevo.

Plan and execute accordingly.

I’m not entirely sure that there’s any comparison to be made that’s sufficient to do our current Kafka-esque situation justice at this point.

Bloodfeast

Steyn, being a sane, civilized human being rather than a witless, primordial ape, finds himself appalled.

Just another weekend in America: A black man walks up to a police cruiser and shoots two Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies. Both, as I write, are alive but in very serious condition. If they survive, they will live with their wounds for what remains of their days.

It is small consolation that even in Compton the number of persons willing to commit cold-blooded murder in broad daylight is relatively small. It is rather more disturbing to contemplate the huge mass of people willing to gloat and feast on the blood. Here is a chap called “beno_the great” rejoicing on “social” media that “them niggers just got aired out”, even as them niggers bleed out behind him with not a soul going to their assistance.

The felled deputies were eventually removed to the St Francis Medical Center in Lynwood, a private hospital founded by the Sisters of St Francis of Penance. The nearer public hospital, Martin Luther King Jr, was closed a decade-and-a-half back because of its general incompetence and mismanagement resulting in so many unnecessary deaths that the American College of Surgeons revoked their certification of the trauma unit. So now the bodies travel further. Once the marching morons discovered that the wounded were at St Francis, they went and blocked the entrances to the hospital’s emergency department.

This, of course, made no difference to the victims, who were already in the operating room, but it did prevent anybody else requiring emergency services from getting into the hospital – for example, one of those “hands up, don’t shoot” types we’re assured are being mown down by racist cops every day of the week, even as the body count of this evil #BLM movement climbs daily. The County Sheriff beseeched the “mostly peaceful protesters” not to obstruct the entrances and exits:

People’s lives are at stake when ambulances can’t get through.

Earth to California law enforcement: That’s not a bug but a feature. As one protester put it:

Y’all gonna die one by one. This ain’t gonna stop.

Oh, yes it is. The very moment enough Real Americans get enough of a bellyful to step up at last and end your worthless asses, it will. I most solemnly assure you of dat shizzle, mah nizzle.

As for the two deputies on the surgeon’s table, they need to be transferred to the mortuary slab:

I want to deliver a message to the family of the pigs. I hope they fuckin’ die.

When they spell it out, take them at their word.

Precisely so. That’s step one of that whole “ending this” process I mentioned just now, see.

Update! Tell ya what, brainiacs: we won’t even use real bullets to put a stop to your shit. Not at first, anyhow. Deal?



The hilarity quotient is potentially stratospheric here, with the added plus that we can always go to the, umm, hard stuff later on. But judging from this next, all it really takes to close BLM/PantiFa out is proper policing, determination to uphold the law, and a radical departure from other cities’ Turn ‘Em Loose Bruce approach to bail.

As we previously reported, there was an officer-involved shooting death in Lancaster, Pennsylvania Sunday that occurred after a knife-wielding 27-year-old Ricardo Munoz charged at a Lancaster city police officer, according to bodycam footage.

Violent rioters took to the streets not long after word spread on social media of the deadly encounter. Fires were started, bricks were thrown at a local police station, and fireworks were randomly set off.

Monday night, however, was a much different story according to local reports and others on the scene, and that was largely thanks to a combination of “proactive policing” from law enforcement and actions from local officials that effectively deterred another night of violence before it could even get started.

A couple of truly delightful Tweets, of which there are more at the Red State link.



And THAT, my friends, is how you ball the friggin’ jack. Wasn’t so difficult, now was it?

Heart of evil

Q: Have we all had just about enough of this shit?

A: Yes. Yes, we most certainly have.

Late Saturday night, news broke that an unidentified gunman ambushed and shot two Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies while they sat in their patrol vehicle. The deputies were taken to a nearby hospital and their condition is unknown. Late Saturday night they were reportedly “fighting for their lives,” having been shot in the head.

Bad enough, to be sure. But hold on, the revolting BLM human debris weren’t quite done yet.

Overnight, things took an even darker turn.

Black Lives Matter protesters made it clear that to them the deputies’ lives do not matter, nor do the lives of anyone in the hospital where the deputies are being cared for. They aligned with the cowardly gunman, celebrating the shooting.

The BLM protesters gathered at the hospital and chanted “We hope they die!”

Ahh, but as grotesque and repellent as that was, you say, surely they didn’t go on to do something even worse? SURELY?!?

You don’t know your BLM pond scum very well, do you?

They also blocked entrances to the hospital emergency room, according to the LA County Sheriffs’ social media.

The cops should’ve gunned every last one of these vicious, murderous filth down right there and then and dragged their stinking carcasses off to the side, leaving them there to rot. Buzzards gotta eat too, you know. But hey, it’s never too late; anytime the Po-Po want to get started on that project, it’ll be jakesy-jukesy with me. More:

The City of Compton disbanded its own police department in 2000.  It was riddled with corruption, and it was economically unfeasible for the City to continue funding it.  Compton now contracts with the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department for police services.

But the Sheriff’s Department has had a long history of trouble in the City of Compton.  It is alleged by community activists that within the Sheriff’s Department — which has a large Latino component — there is an “assassination” squad who get special tattoos after killing a reputed gang member, justified or not.

Bold mine—and to some degree explanatory. The long-standing and intense animosity between De Black Foke and Latinos—particularly in LA, after the Latino gangs pretty much booted the Crips and Bloods out of South Central years ago—is nothing short of legendary.

The poor relationship between the community and the Department has only worsened during the summer of protests, and the violence on Saturday night isn’t all that surprising.

Probably not. But it damned well ought to be. Any culture so benumbed and depraved, so utterly soulless, that such outrages no longer retain the power to shock and horrify has decayed far beyond redemption, and is unworthy of rescue.

9/11, straight up

Unsurprisingly, perhaps, Glenn doesn’t really share my bitter cynicism about things.

19 YEARS AGO TODAY, WE SAID “NEVER FORGET,” BUT WE MOSTLY HAVE. Maybe that’s okay, in a way. As hardly anyone has noticed, Trump’s mideast peace deals have pulled the teeth of Islamic terror — without funding from the Saudis and the other rich Arab states, these “grassroots” terror movements miraculously disappear, just as the “people-based” communist revolutions vanished as soon as the Soviet Union went belly-up and quit funding them. And also, with fracking, there’s not as much Arab money lying around to begin with.

No one who was alive and aware that day will forget it, but my law students are already mostly young enough not to really remember it.

But look at it this way: The Bush presidency was basically all about reacting to 9/11. The Obama presidency was mostly about reacting to the Bush presidency’s reaction to 9/11. Trump’s presidency has been about putting the United States in a position where things like that won’t happen. I’ll take it.

He usually provides a link to his 9/11/01 posts but for some reason didn’t this year, and the archive link redirects to the main Instapundit page. But from my own bitterly cynical point of view, I can only ask: at this late stage of the game, why bother?

Meanwhile, my good friend and esteemed fellow OG warblogger Bill Quick—DEFINITELY unsurprisingly for those of us who know him well—does indeed share my bitter cynicism. But even a Pro-level cynic like Bill can’t quite eclipse my own weapons-grade Bitter Cynicissitude, I don’t think.

We have, of course, forgotten.

It is natural that we would. Two of the current crop of young American heroes, Nick Sandmann and Kyle Rittenhouse, have no living recollection of the Muslim jihad attack on America that occurred on September 11, 2001, two years before either were born.

We move on. Time heals all wounds. Blah, blah, blah.

It is revealing that, from my point of view, Islam appears to have won that encounter. Americans of today seem far more worried about being perceived as “Islamophobic,” than they are about the ongoing wave of atrocities being committed around the world in Islam’s name.

Of course, we have become a soft and decadent people. One of the reasons we have not unconditionally won a war since WWII is that we don’t have the fiber to wage a war to victory. Hell, we even get the vapors if some white couple dares stand on their own property while bearing arms against a rioting mob invading their neighborhood.

We want to be “nice.” But what we end up being, over and over again, is dead.

I haven’t forgotten, nor have I forgiven. But I am part of a dwindling breed. Young heroic men like Kyle Rittenhouse and Nicholas Sandmann give me hope for the future. But I can’t escape the ominous feeling that even they may only be the last gasp of a dying past.

He’s right, of course, about all of it. Sadly, depressingly, that would include that last sentence.

But right now, what it’s all putting me in mind of is that, on 9/14/01, I registered the Cold Fury domain name. Over the next couple of days, I built the site from scratch—I had only just discovered this whole newfangled blogging thang, so the original site was constructed using Adobe GoLive and BBEdit—and on the 16th I put up the first few posts. Before too long, I would discover the old blogging software Grey Matter, using that for a while before switching over to Moveable Type, then finally moving on to WordPress soon after it came out.

And that, in turn, means that once again I’ll soon have to remind myself to renew the domain name. Usually I forget, leading to a stupid outage; the seemingly perennial personal-cash-flow blockage of the last several years means that renewing in advance, or setting things up for auto-renewal (such luxury!), just ain’t in the cards, alas. But I SWEAR I’ma get it done on time this year, dammit. I SWEAR it.

And that, in turn, puts me in mind of the necessity to begin the Herculean task of trying at last to untangle the malicious Russkie code planted in last year’s über-hack from the voluminous CF archive database, which I’ll be starting on forthwith, Lord help me. Maybe I’ll also see if I can dig up a screenshot from those halcyon early CF days and post that, too. No promises on that one, though. Heck, I don’t even know that I have one at all, much where I’d go a-hunting for such an elusive snipe.

A side yarn I’ve spun before here, while we’re on the subject of ancient history and bygone days: the Cold Fury name originally came to be because of my immediate realization that, although the whole country came together in the wake of the 9/11 attacks, that apparent unity was illusory, and would be short-lived. I knew that the Left would be unable to restrain its still-developing but already quite powerful America-Hate muscle from spasming involuntarily. Its Pavlovian instinct to lay the world’s every ill, every evil, and every injustice at America’s feet would soon find its too-predictable expression via the latest Islamic act of barbarism and savagery against the hated Western infidel. That sure and certain knowledge sparked a…well, yes, a Cold Fury in me that still scorches the soul even now.

In my bitterly cynical mind, I gave the dirty bastards no more than a week before they’d bare the bloody fangs and revert to their true nature. Two, at the outside.

In the event, I had been too magnanimous: as I recollect, it was no more than two-three days before the first establishment-media op-ed appeared, penned by some self-loathing shitlib bint or other who superciliously opined that, what with its many decades of Oppressing Innocent Brown People the world over—most especially the long-tormented Middle East, whose only sin was being situated atop all that accursed oil, placed by heartless Fate between Black Gold and AMERICAN GREED™—America had only itself to blame for the latest shattering, calamitous assault.

The rubble and carcinogenic dust hadn’t yet settled; the deadly fires still burned in Lower Manhattan. Nobody even knew yet how many innocent souls, from all over the world, had been murdered. An entire nation had been brought to a standstill, holding its breath while it waited for information about the calamity.

Yet here the loathsome brigands came nonetheless, bringing the routine Despicable-Left shit to be smeared all over tear-streaked American faces, ground into grieving American hearts.

They eagerly made an obscene, gruesome mockery of all human compassion, forbearance, and decency in an orgy of mindless hatred. And now, almost two decades later? If anything, they’re even worse than they were back then. Now as then, their only thought is to denigrate, to defile, to destroy. But today the thought has, by orders of magnitude, grown more intense. Their ambition has metastasized, their determination hardened far beyond the ability of mere words to break, soften, or deflect.

As Glenn has long said: Anti-war? Nope. On the other side.

So 13 percent of the population wants to start a “race war” against 70 percent of it?

I don’t think they’ve thought this thing all the way through.

Low intelligence, poor impulse control, defective future orientation, emotionalism, difficulty with abstractions. So say psychologists who study racial differences. The literature is voluminous, though suppressed. (The predictable assertion that these scientists, nearly all white, are racist is belied by their consistent finding that Ashkenazi Jews are at the top in intelligence, followed by East Asians, then whites. Racists do not establish the inferiority of their own race.)

These traits, plus poor understanding of the world beyond their visual field, and difficulty with abstract reasoning perfectly explain the senseless murders, the periodic yet unceasing riots and burning of cities, usually of their own neighborhoods and stores. Watts in 1965, much of the country in 1968, LA in1992, more recently Baltimore, Ferguson, Minneapolis. They explain the young black woman on network television sobbing that she is afraid to leave her house because the police might kill her, the black man roaring that he is tired, tired, tired of the police hunting down blacks to kill them. The absurdity of the first claim, the fact that blacks kill far more of each other than whites do, do not occur to an emotional, poorly informed and innumerate people.

Many students of black behavior have concluded that it is innate—genetic, as we say. This thought is of course verboten, an ender of careers, so many who know of it remain very quiet, as do the millions who have long suspected it. Liberals also seem to suspect it as otherwise they would say “Let’s study the matter carefully and find out.” Fairly obviously they fear what they might find, so instead they shy away from the questions in something resembling terror. In human affairs, questions avoided are questions likely to have the wrong answers.

If blacks as a race (there always being degrees and exceptions) cannot fit into a modern society, as seems to be the case, what now? It will be pointed out that blacks are decent people when not enraged or impulsive, that they are emotionally warmer than whites, immensely talented in music and acting, that they are human beings and should not be forced by circumstance to live in grim ghettos, that some are highly intelligent. All true. It can also be pointed out that many of my age grew up listening to the Platters, James Brown, the Supremes, to bebop and doowop and later Coltrane and Davis and so on at endless length, and that is somehow disagreeably ungrateful to think of their race as incompatible with mainline civilization. True…uncomfortably true.

But the killings, the crime, the arson never stop.

Whatever the answer might be, what we are doing now isn’t it.

Probably the single worst thing that could ever happen to them would be for them to get what they claim to want.

Ohhh, it is ON now!

Okay, that’s it. This is the final fucking STRAW.

Rock ‘n’ roll legend Elvis Presley’s famous mansion “Graceland” in Memphis, Tennessee has been vandalized by BLM supporters.

On Monday night, “protesters” who support the Marxist organization Black Lives Matter spray-painted slogans such as “Defund the police,” “Abolish ICE,” “F*ck 12,” “F*ck Trump,” and more on the wall and sidewalks surrounding the estate.

The damage is estimated to cost around $150,000.

Country musician Travis Tritt condemned the vandalism on Twitter, writing, “Anyone who personally knew Elvis will tell you that he absolutely loved the black community and the black community loved him. It breaks my heart to see his memory tarnished this way.”

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee said, “Where I come from you don’t mess with Elvis!”

Damned straight you don’t. Kill them. Kill them ALL. No mercy, no quarter, no remorse.

Sorry, ladies

#BlackRapists’Girlfriend’sLivesDon’tMatter.



Know what makes it even worse? The Democrat-Riot-Rapist Party is even now running a candidate for president who has been credibly accused of doing the exact same thing.

Hotting up

Wanna talk terrorist murder, shitlibs? Assassins? I don’t think you do. I really don’t.

On Saturday, hundreds of Trump supporters gathered in the outskirts of Portland in a “Cruise Rally” in pick-up trucks with a lot of Trump 2020 flags decked out all over the cars.

After their rally, they then decided to drive into Portland. They were set upon, in the words of the media, by “counter-protesters” otherwise known as radical leftists/Antifa folk.

Leftist tried to block some of the cars, other cars they threw things at, threatened or stole flags from. Some of the Trump supporters defended themselves with pepper spray or paintball guns. There were multiple fights between the two groups.

They cornered Patriot Prayer’s Joey Gibson and beat the heck out of him. He survived because the folks in the gas station saved him and pulled him inside. Then Antifa tried to besiege the station.

But as we reported earlier, the worst incident was when a man came up and apparently walking up to the Trump supporter and fired point blank, killing him.

Then they celebrated the death of the Trump supporter, cheering when one of their leaders announced he was dead, even burning an American flag in the celebration, after slandering the man calling him a “nazi” and saying “our community held its own. they “took out the trash.”

The rancid piece of subhuman debris who pulled the trigger appears to be a 48 year old snowboard instructor named Michael Reinoehl.

The Nationalist Review wrote in their in-depth report, “the 48-year-old ‘professional snowboarder’ was previously featured on a Bloomberg promo for the riots where he described himself as part of the rioter’s security apparatus. Reinoehl touted his military experience and described events that led up to him receiving a bullet grazing on his arm. In the video, a neck tattoo identical to the shooter’s own tattoo is seen on his neck.”

What goes around comes around, scum. But just get a load of Portland riot co-conspirator Ted Wheeler’s response to Trump repeatedly calling him out for the nefarious muttonhead he is:

WheelerLetter.jpg

Every last word of it a fucking lie, including “and” and “the.” Gerard headlines it thusly: When the militia gets around to hanging the Mayor of Portland, this will be Exhibit A at the drop. And well it might be. They can’t swing his ass quick enough to suit me. He damned sure ought to be sent to Hell with a crowd to keep him company, too.

Is it insurrection yet?

I’d say so, yeah.

Sen. Rand Paul: My wife and I were attacked by a mob — Dems would worsen problem by bowing to rioters

Don’t look now, Senator, but they aren’t just “bowing” to them. They’re encouraging them, covering for them, lying about who they are and what they’re doing to help maintain the facade of legitimate protest, and ensuring that they’re exempt from the law by ordering cops to stand down and refusing to prosecute the handful who do get arrested.

The Dems aren’t “worsening” the problem; they ARE the problem. They need to be made to pay for that, and dearly.

My wife Kelley and I were attempting to leave the White House event. We were staying at a hotel directly across the street, maybe 50 yards from the gates of the White House. But as we went to leave, it became apparent there was no safe exit out the gates and through the unruly mob that had gathered there.

Why? Because another Democratic-run city had decided it would bow to lawless rioters instead of protecting its citizens. Mayor Muriel Bowser was asked by the Secret Service to allow wider and better protection for those leaving the White House Thursday night, but she refused.

Mayor Bowser and many others are responsible for what happened. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., called my Senate colleagues and me “enemies of the state.” Democratic vice-presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris has advocated paying bail to get violent rioters out of jail.

Three Democratic House members who are part of the socialist “Squad” have called for people to “take to the streets.”

Well, national Democrats, your people are listening to you. How does it feel to watch it happen?  Are you comfortable watching the mob go after my wife and me?

Of course they are. To them, you ARE the enemy. If you learn nothing else from your ordeal, Sen Paul, please learn that these filthy snakes in the grass are neither your colleagues nor your countrymen. They are well and truly enemies, and dangerous ones at that—enemies not just of you and your wife personally, but of every decent American, of the Constitution, of the country entire. And they aren’t just playing around here; the insurrection is for real, they’re all in and playing for keeps, and they firmly intend to win.

My question is: Who are these people? Who paid for their hotel rooms? Who flew them in? Law enforcement needs to look at the funding of violent criminal activity like this.

And national Democrats need to confront it. It’s organized. It’s paid for. It’s violent. It’s not about Black lives or any lives; it’s about anarchy and destruction. The American people are starting to catch on and grow tired of it.

So I ask Democratic presidential nominee former Vice President Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris this:

Will you stand up finally and denounce this violence and destruction? Will you quit inciting it and urge other leaders to do the same?

My wife and I await your answers.

I hope you aren’t holding your breath.

The shot heard round the world

And now, it begins.

Amid violent Black Lives Matter riots and arson in Kenosha, Wisc., on Tuesday night, 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse opened fire at looters in two separate instances, killing two people and injuring a third. Police arrested Rittenhouse on Wednesday after cops apparently congratulated him on Tuesday night. Early reports suggest Rittenhouse shot one man in the head while the victim was looting a car shop, but his second shooting appeared to involve self-defense after looters threw a Molotov cocktail at him.

And tackling, beating, and kicking him brutally, too.

Rittenhouse came from Antioch, Ill., which is only 15 miles away from Kenosha, the Associated Press reported. Authorities arrested him on suspicion of first-degree intentional homicide.

He oughta get some kind of medal, if you ask me.

Shaffer later explained that in the minutes before the shooting, rioters used drones and bats to destroy vehicles, and lit multiple cars on fire. Ironically, one of the rioters operated the shop and he tried to stop his Black Lives Matter allies from destroying his property.

Shaffer also noted that “the alleged shooter was defending the property.”

This context does not excuse what appears to have been a vigilante assassination.

Like hell it doesn’t. With the rioters enjoying the full endorsement and support of Democrat-Socialist officialdom nationwide, and the police kept on a tight leash by those same criminal authorities, ordinary citizens have stepped up to do what they must.

However, the second shooting appears to have involved self-defense. Townhall’s Julio Rosas reported seeing a Black Lives Matter mob chasing Rittenhouse. After Rittenhouse tripped and fell, the rioters shouted, “Get his *ss!” Then the man appears to have shot one of the rioters in self-defense.

The violent riots and arson in Kenosha are terrifying, and it makes sense that citizens would arm themselves to curb the destruction. That does not justify Rittenhouse’s first shooting, however. Police arguably should have arrested the man right after the shootings.

Instead, they reportedly allowed him to go home. That does not suggest inherent racism, as some on the Left have claimed. The cops may have a bias in favor of a vigilante trying to stop the rioting over the rioters themselves. Even so, they should have arrested Rittenhouse after the shootings.

O’Neill blandly says that as if these were ordinary times. But they are no such thing. We are at war, with a violent Left-wing revolutionary enemy actively seeking to overthrow and destroy this nation. We sat idly back as they assaulted, beat, stabbed, shot, and ran over numerous innocent people with impunity, going at least as far back as the shooting of Steve Scalise and others by a deranged Bernie Sanders employee.

Quite simply, the ordinary rules and standards no longer apply.

And honestly, much as I do hate to see it come to this, in my estimation young Rittenhouse is skating mighty close to being a real American hero. He courageously put himself in harm’s way to protect others; he didn’t flinch or hesitate when it came time to living up to his commitment. He buckled down and did what he had to do. And a couple of shitbag Marxist goblins ended up getting themselves killed.

Well, so fucking what? THEY called this tune, in spite of constant serious and sober warnings about where it would lead. So far we’ve resisted the invitation, but now the ball has started in earnest, and we’re all going to have to get off our chairs and onto the dance floor.

As I keep saying, nobody on our side wanted this. But we’re stuck with it anyway, like it or not, and frankly I’m glad to see one of ours shooting back at long, long last. All in all, I’m with Ace:

I think legally he’s guilty, but I don’t think the law is in effect any longer. The government is refusing to enforce it against insurrectionists, effectively making them State Sanctioned Terrorists, and citizens are forced to defend themselves and their own property.

I’ve been saying it for years: If the government will not protect the citizenry, then the citizenry will turn to vigilantism.

And citizens do not have the long hours of training that cops do.

You have to give them some leeway. If the state is effectively making terrorism and arson legal, then I say, shooting rioters without normal legal justification is now legal too.

He has been arrested. I say: Jury nullification. We’ll start giving the state convictions they moment they start enforcing the laws, and not a moment before.

Play Thunderdome games, win Thunderdome prizes.

Update: JEM sends me to Shipwreckedcrew at Red State, who has video before the first shot — antifa/BLM droogs were chasing this guy down. He turned and fired on them.

Self defense. Fuck you, assholes. Play human-hunting games, win Most Dangerous Game prizes.

See the video here, from 3:59:00 to 3:59:45. You can clearly see a group of bipedal wolves chasing this guy down.

Then he decides his life is in danger, turns, and kills an animal.

Precisely so. One of O’Neill’s commenters spells it out nicely:

There is a fundamental human right to protect one’s self, one’s family, and one’s property.
In a free democratic society the people make a pact with the government they create; that individuals will restrain their own right to self-defense where feasible, in return for the government promising to seek justice on their behalf.

When the government turns a blind eye to a citizen’s peril, that citizen can justly retake their original human right to defend themselves. This is the entire argument behind Blacks having an inherent right to protect themselves from violent racists if the government refuses to do so on their behalf…

Annnnd bingo. Governments all across the country have reneged on that societal contract; they reject the Constitution’s call to “ensure domestic tranquility,” refusing to duly enforce the law for purely political reasons. They have informed ordinary citizens, in no uncertain terms, that they are well and truly on their own.

Real Americans’ patience, while very deep and strong, is not without limit. It has been stretched far beyond any reasonable bounds by both the rioters and the government officials who brazenly cheer them on. Those officials had better recognize that they can be brought to heel relatively easily, their transgressions and abuses harshly punished. They are by no means beyond the reach of an angry and aroused citizenry bent on righteous vengeance. Justice a la Rittenhouse can also be visited upon them, and the more they go on as they have been, the sooner they might just wind up facing the music themselves.

Update! Bill has a couple of photos which clearly indicate self-defense.

Where we now are

Noplace good.

Man accused of firing gun near Trump supporters gathering in Fort Mill

“Near.” Oh, I like that, I really really do. Try “AT,” you mealymouthed liberal-propagandist assholes.

A Charlotte man was arrested in Fort Mill Monday after police say he fired several shots from a vehicle near a political gathering.

The incident happened around 6:50 p.m. in the area of I-77 and Sutton Road. Members of the group, a local organization for women, say they were holding signs on the side of the road in support of President Donald Trump.

Women. The worthless pustules were shooting at a bunch of women, ferchrissakes.

The victims said as the vehicle turned from Sutton Rd on to the ramp to northbound I-77, the driver of the vehicle kept yelling, then put his arm out the window while holding what appeared to be a handgun.

They heard several shots being fired as the vehicle proceeded northbound on the interstate.

”All of a sudden you know bang bang bang bang bang bang bang” says Ostrowski.

As the incident was taking place, officials say an SCHP trooper in the area saw the activity and drove onto I-77 in an effort to locate the vehicle. A short time later, the trooper found the vehicle abandoned near Gold Hill Road and Deerfield Drive.

“It was ridiculous. There were kids everywhere,” says Ostrowski. “They drove by really slow and saw everybody, so they knew exactly who was there.”

And children. Jesus H Christ on a crutch.

The trooper then saw a second vehicle leaving the area and noticed one of the people inside had clothing matching that of one of the people in the first vehicle. That vehicle was then stopped by officers nearby.

After further investigation, and with evidence recovered, police say two of the males were released without charges. The driver of the vehicle, identified as 23-year-old Marquise Damarius Asomani of Charlotte, was taken into custody.

So in other words, the scum had prepositioned a getaway car, likely stealing the vehicle they used for the attack itself, indicating the whole assault was not some spontaneous, ill-considered thing but was instead planned well in advance. That would seem to me to call for an attempted murder charge too, which I notice is not among the ones listed for some odd reason. It damned well oughta be, because that’s what it was.

Gotta feel sorry for poor old Marquise Damarius Loqueexion Kwanzaalicious, though. His accomplices ratted his ass out when the heat was on, leaving him holding the bag all by his lonesome. Sucks to be you, Damarius. Maybe try choosing your friends a little more carefully next time, huh?

In sum, then, this is where we are in “America” at present: legally, peaceably expressing support for a sitting President’s reelection campaign is enough to get yourself shot at, maybe even killed, by a marauding pack of slavering, subnormal savages. To make matters worse, the sleazy local media establishment will try their utmost to nudge public opinion along amongst their benighted viewership towards a kinder, gentler, more evolved view of your potentially-fatal victimization by saying you were shot “near” rather than “at,” hearing “several shots being fired” as a harmless “driver” for some unknowable but no doubt innocuous reason “put his arm out the window” while “holding what appeared to be a handgun.”

Allegedly, natch. Gotta include that one, too. Marquesius Damarialicious Shonzelle the VIIIth is a “disadvantaged minority youth,” you can be sure, with a rap sheet stretching southwards from downtown Shit City (my moniker for the hellhole that is CLT) all the way to Columbia. Why, the poor fellow is really just a victim his own self, is what he is. Of America’s “systemic racism,” see, and “white privilege” as well. Can anybody possibly blame him for wanting to burn down a few radical white-supremacist Trump fascists when he sees a chance to?

Infuriating, that’s what.

Let’s follow the science a bit further

I hereby demand MY reparations check.

Welcome to 2020. The New York Times wins a Pulitzer Prize for its “1619 Project,” which depicts slavery as a distinctly American phenomenon and as the very foundation of American civilization. For several weeks, a half-dozen all but unreadable books seeking redefine the concept of racism hover at or near the top of the bestseller lists. Meanwhile, the cities of America become battlegrounds in a race war waged by young people, many of whom think that America invented the institution of slavery.

This is but one of many historical facts about which they’re wrong. The truth is that fewer than 4 percent of the slaves who were transported across the Atlantic Ocean from Africa ended up in the territory of what is now the United States. More slaves were shipped to the small island of Barbados than to the vast areas that started out as British North America and then became the United States.
 
The same applies to Trinidad and the Windward Islands (Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada, Dominica, and Martinique). Ditto the Guianas (now Guyana, Suriname, and French Guiana). Ditto the Spanish-speaking mainland of Latin American. Over 8 percent of transatlantic African slaves—twice the number sold between Maine and Georgia—were sold in St. Domingue, a French colony in what is now Haiti. Over 8 percent of slaves also ended up in the Spanish-speaking Caribbean. The largest numbers of all are for Jamaica (over 11 percent) and Brazil (over 30 percent).

In recent years, as schools and universities increasingly focus on racial issues, young Americans’ heads are filled with heaps of information—much of it from books like A People’s History of the United States—about the American legacy of racism and, in particular, the history of slavery and Jim Crow. But virtually none of them know that the slaves who were shipped to the present-day United States were a small fraction of the victims of the African slave trade.

Ignorance also surrounds another aspect of slave history. The other day I posted on Facebook a quotation from Thomas Sowell. “More whites were brought as slaves to North Africa than blacks brought as slaves to the United States or to the 13 colonies from which it was formed. White slaves were still being bought and sold in the Ottoman Empire, decades after blacks were freed in the United States.”

Facebook users responded in disbelief. “This can’t possibly be true! What’s he talking about?” commented one, whose Facebook page identified him as a “senior research fellow.” Another, a filmmaker, wrote: “Seems dubious.”

In fact, the white slave trade was a terrifying reality for generations of Westerners from the 1400s to the 1800s. Several sovereign North African entities—the Sultanate of Morocco, and the independent Ottoman provinces of Algiers, Tunis, and Tripoli—were all active in the capture and sale of European and American slaves. Some whites were taken from ships on the high seas in acts of piracy; others were captured during coastal raids on the European mainland and Newfoundland. 

As usual, it’s not that liberals don’t know anything; it’s that so much of what they think they know isn’t so. You’re bound to love this next bit:

During the later phase of the white slave trade, European powers paid large sums to the North African powers to protect their citizens from enslavement. After the United States declared its independence, it refused to make such payments, which resulted in the taking of American seamen by Arab pirates. In 1786, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams met in London with the ambassador from Tripoli to discuss the matter. When they asked why Tripolitanians would “make war upon nations who had done them no injury,” the ambassador replied “that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.”

Sounds all too familiar, doesn’t it? Guess some things really never DO change. Read all of it.

TRAGEDY!

I’m inconsolable. Grief-stricken. Desolated.

Three people were injured in downtown Louisville when a member of an armed black militia group carrying semiautomatic weapons accidentally discharged a firearm as they marched to a demonstration.

Despite earlier reports that the shots were fired as a result of an argument between the group and a far-right organization gathered nearby, it was later confirmed that a member of the Atlanta-based ‘Not F*****g Around Coaltion’ (NFAC) had accidentally fired on other members as they assembled in Baxter Park.

An estimated 350 armed members of the group had gathered there before marching toward the main protest site in downtown Louisville, where about 50 member of the far right militia group Three Percenters were also gathered.

Just hours after the shooting, the leader of the NFAC vowed the group would return to Louisville to ‘burn this motherf****r down’ if the investigation into the death of Breonna Taylor is not completed in four weeks time.

So what’s the tragedy, you ask? Why, that not a one of these three NFuKD buffoons seems to have incurred himself a fatal injury in the dustup. Oh well, better luck next time, I guess. Somehow, it all reminds me of this classic scene:




So totting things up, we have an unfortunate dearth of death in Louisville, and therefore no desperately-needed and long-overdue culling of the current oversupply of violent, moronic Leftard protesters, either. Gladder tidings from down in Austin, though.

The incident leading up to the 28-year-old’s death began about 9:50 p.m. when a driver on Fourth Street honked his horn and turned right onto Congress Avenue where there was a crowd of protesters, Austin Police Chief Brian Manley said Sunday.

Several protesters — including Foster, who was holding an assault rifle — approached the car, Manley said. He said the driver reported that Foster pointed the weapon at him. The driver then pointed his handgun outside the window, fired multiple shots and drove away, Manley said.

Someone else in the crowd opened fire on the car as it drove off, Manley said.

First responders performed CPR on Foster, but he died at Dell Seton Medical Center less than an hour after the shooting, officials said.

The lesson: Don’t start no shit, won’t be no shit.

While ruefully acknowledging the somewhat disappointing outcome of the first story, Real Americans must nonetheless put both of these into the Win column.

Black Criminal Lives Matter

Innocent, defenseless white babies’ lives: not so much. WARNING: brace yourself for one of the sickest and most horrifying photos you’re ever going to see. I hope.

BLMInfantAbuse.jpg


This IS Black Lives Matter, people. This is who they are, what they do. Don’t delude yourself for a single moment that the two thugs wouldn’t have happily murdered that child, and any other white infant they could get their hands on, if they even half-believed they could get away with it.

The subhuman scumsuckers abusing that poor baby need to be removed from this Earth. I do not give a good goddamn who does it, or how it’s done. As long as the process is extremely painful, and takes a good, long while.

A photograph of a man kneeling on the neck of a white baby while another person holds the diapered child’s arms is stirring up a massive amount of rage on social media.

The shocking and disturbing photograph, which was captioned by the abusers as “Blm now mf” is beginning to make the rounds after being uncovered by Vincent James of Red Elephants.

The man in the photo’s name is Isaiah Jackson and he resides in Ohio. A man with that name was arrested on July 20 in Ohio for a probation violation.

The paternal grandmother of the child wrote on Facebook that the photo was taken two days ago while the two-year-old was with his mother, who is dating Jackson. She told TGP that her son did not find out about it until yesterday morning.

The grandmother, who the Gateway Pundit has opted not to name for the child’s safety, provided us with screenshots of conversations in which the mother attempted to defend the photo when confronted about it, calling the person “ignorant” and claiming that “he wasn’t hurting him.”

Oh, clearly, clearly not, you stupid-ass mudshark. Dey’z jis’ playn’ n’shit, yo. Just never mind that the child is quite obviously SCREAMING IN TERROR AND PAIN IN THE FUCKING PHOTO.

After they kill the filthbags kneeling on the kid’s neck and holding his arms, they need to do the “mother” (gag) immediately after, in the same excruciating fashion.

“BLM now, mf?” Fuck you. Die screaming, then burn in Hell for ten thousand years, you miserable, oxygen-thief piece of shit. You, and all who “think” like you.

Update! Some black lives really DO matter. This would be one of them.

A woman called the Kansas City Missouri Police Department July 10. She wanted to help the officer who was shot July 2 and remains in the ICU. We (the KCPD) advised he’s well cared for, but if she wanted to donate for restaurant or gas station gift cards for his family so they can eat at and travel to/from the hospital, we were accepting those at East Patrol Division. She went on to say she lives in the urban core of Kansas City, and her daughter was murdered in 2012. She said the detectives who worked her daughter’s case were like her therapists, fathers, and lifelines all in one.

She said she lost her job a month ago and has been struggling to pay her bills. She went to the grocery store last week and found a $1 bill in the parking lot. She used that to buy a lottery ticket, with which she won $100. Her 12-year-old daughter was with her and said, “Mom, we should give that to the police officer who got shot.” She agreed immediately. With her current financial hardship, we urged her to keep the money. She refused, saying the officer’s family needed it, and police needed to know they were supported.

We at KCPD shared this wonderful act of humanity on our social media. Then hundreds of people said they wanted to help her out. However, the woman had called from an unlisted number and didn’t leave a name. It took a while, but we were able to track her down. Her name is Shetara Sims. She is on the left of this photo (along with KCPD social worker Brooke and Officer Earle). She’s a struggling single mom. Even when we found her again, she asked, “Don’t the officer and his family need it more?”

Shetara’s act of kindness has touched Kansas City, and they wanted to give back. This is your chance to do so!

That’s from the GoFundMe page the cops set up for this beautiful, generous soul, bless her heart. More:

An African American single mom who lost her job during the CCP coronavirus pandemic lockdowns, and was down to her last $7, donated her winnings from a lottery ticket to a police officer who was shot in the line of duty. When the police department set up a donation link to help her out, she expressed disbelief and asked, “Don’t the officer and his family need it more?” This is how America heals, everyone.

As of this writing, the donation link had raised just a hair over $40,000 in five days.

Good for her, and for those cops too. I hope she gets a ton more before the fundraiser is done.

FINALLY, they admit it!

The Nee-grow Division of the Smithsonian museum has finally ‘fessed up to the overall superiority of Western culture, and even gave full credit to the White (yes, I’m capitalizing it now, fuck you very much) mostly-European devils responsible for creating it. Or so it would seem from this:

White-Culture-bs.jpg

Reads like a how-to manual for building a successful, prosperous, humane, and enduring society, doesn’t it? And on the evidence of observable history, that is exactly what it is; the laudable, wholesome values it laid out therein worked remarkably well, and stood mankind in good stead for several centuries, directly leading to pretty much every civilizational advance known, reaching its apogee in the good ol’, now-defunct US of A. Revealingly, it was only after having incrementally abandoned those values over the last six or seven decades that American society has crumbled into the dysfunctional, chaotic mess it now is.

So yes, an acknowledgement is definitely in order, I should think, along with a heaping dollop of humble gratitude from all those who have benefitted so richly from its myriad blessings—most certainly to include the Twanlocs currently disparaging it the most vociferously, even advocating for its destruction.

But alas, it seems that the Smithsonian’s Nee-grow Division actually intended the above graphic as more of a condemnation and/or indictment, evidently much preferring primordial savagery to, y’know, civilization. Because, y’know, RAYCISS ‘N’ SHIT.

Whiteness and white racialized identity refer to the way that white people, their customs, culture, and beliefs operate as the standard by which all other groups of are compared. Whiteness is also at the core of understanding race in America. Whiteness and the normalization of white racial identity throughout America’s history have created a culture where nonwhite persons are seen as inferior or abnormal.

This white-dominant culture also operates as a social mechanism that grants advantages to white people, since they can navigate society both by feeling normal and being viewed as normal. Persons who identify as white rarely have to think about their racial identity because they live within a culture where whiteness has been normalized.

Thinking about race is very different for nonwhite persons living in America. People of color must always consider their racial identity, whatever the situation, due to the systemic and interpersonal racism that still exists.

“Systemic” racism—which is to say institutional racism, official racism, legally-sanctioned or mandated racism—no longer exists in America, and hasn’t for quite a while now. Well, except for affirmative action, of course, which is nothing more than systemic reverse-racism.

“Interpersonal” racism probably always will exist—not just in America but all over the world, and not just among whites but among all races, ethnicities, and other groupings. A strong bias in favor of one’s own peer-group—one’s tribe, shall we say—is a human survival trait, with us since our origins, deeply ingrained in all of us. It isn’t very likely it will ever be removed, however much tinkering the Progressivists do in their futile quest to create human perfection. It might not even be possible to remove it at all.

As is usual with the Race Warriors, here they demonstrate the usual lack of comprehension, this time by artificially and disingenuously conflate prejudice with discrimination, which happen to be two very different things. Prejudice is ubiquitous, hard to put a firm finger on or prove to courtroom standards, and likely doesn’t do a lot of demonstrable harm to society as a whole anyhow, nor even to individuals, beyond hurting the feelings of those more sensitive types. In sum: prejudice is merely an attitude, an opinion, a habit of mind, however backward and unlovely. It is probably best to just ignore it, and to avoid those who are prone to extreme indulgence in it if you can.

Discrimination, on the other hand, is an action, one undertaken at prejudice’s behest. Example: one can mutter imprecations most dire under his breath after checking a Negro, a Hispanic, an Asian, or the despised ethnic of one’s choice into the hotel one manages. What one can NOT do—not legally anyway, not in this country—is refuse those people a room solely on account of their ethnicity. If one tries it, one will find himself in great tubfuls of vefy hot water pretty danged quick.

Whiteness (and its accepted normality) also exist as everyday microaggressions toward people of color. Acts of microaggressions include verbal, nonverbal, and environmental slights, snubs or insults toward nonwhites. Whether intentional or not, these attitudes communicate hostile, derogatory, or harmful messages.

Y’know, the very term “microaggression” has always made me snicker a bit. I mean, the “micro” kind of gives it away as being something trivial, unimportant by definition, right? How harmful can anything described as “micro” really be, anyway? Best steel yourselves, cupcakes, and find yourselves a way to carry on somehow. Dry your tears, toughen up, and get on with your fucking day, willya?

Since white people in America hold most of the political, institutional, and economic power, they receive advantages that nonwhite groups do not. These benefits and advantages, of varying degrees, are known as white privilege. For many white people, this can be hard to hear, understand, or accept – but it is true. If you are white in America, you have benefited from the color of your skin.

Oh, izzat so? Tell me, please, HOW I have. Be precise; I won’t be receptive to general, amorphous blather about how much easier it’s been for me to get and hold jobs, accumulate wads of money, get hot chicks interested in me, and just throw my weight around generally, inflicting my rank White general Double Plus Undgood-ness on one and all.

Let there be no conflating advantages or leg-ups gained due to being part of the majority population with any notional ones conferred entirely by the color of my skin, either. I want actual, exact specification of everything you think I’ve been given strictly because I’m white.

Because I gotta tell ya: I just ain’t seeing it, myself. As such, I’m growing mighty damned tired of constantly hearing about it, and have pretty much completely lost all ability to suffer it in silence. If you doubt that, just try me and see how it works out for ya. Me, and after the last few months, one hell of a lot of others like me, I suspect.

The more things change

Any of this sound familiar? At all?

With all the recent troubles we’re again being invited to an honest and open conversation about race, or said differently, the browbeatings will be resumed. Try this for honest and open: many of us, probably most of us, are tired of your whining, your so-called grievances, your violence and crime, your insults and threats, your witless blather and pornographic demeanor—all of it. You’re not quite 13% of the population yet everything has to be about you, all day, every day. With you, facts aren’t facts, everything’s a kozmik krisis, and abusive confrontations are your go-to.

Here’s the thing: some of us despise you, although fewer than you believe, but most of us plain don’t care about you or your doings. There was a time when we did care, but you betrayed our good will and played us for fools. We laugh about it now, but we actually believed you wanted equal opportunity and mutual respect and to live in harmony—all that stuff. Ain’t it a hoot? Imagine our embarrassment.

We talk among ourselves just like you do. It’s true, we have “frank and open discussions” when you’re not around. Why? Partly because it’s exhausting to tippy-toe around you. Partly because you think it’s your celestial right to tell us what we can say. And partly because you’re alarmingly aggressive or painfully dim-witted by turns. We never know which “you” will pop out of the box, or when. But mainly because you’ve revealed yourself as grasping opportunists without honor or principle. There’s your deal-breaker. There’s more.

During the recent riots you expected us to believe heisting snack food then torching the place was “standing up for justice”. When we didn’t buy it, you told us the looting and arson wasn’t done by the rioters after all, no, all the bad stuff was done by rioters from out of town. Apparently you think it makes a difference to us. And if we don’t fall for that one, you tell us you’re the real victims, you’re the ones “hit hardest” because the neighborhoods you looted and burned are, um, looted and burned.

We’ve never stood in your way but we don’t really care if you have good neighborhoods or not. The evidence says you don’t care either, unless we build and maintain them for you, what your enablers call “investments in urban communities.” They don’t mention the return on our past “investments”. Our former neighborhoods weren’t improved by your arrival. Your contempt for ordinary civility tells us no level of “investment” would make a difference. Listen up. It’s simple. Just like our neighborhoods are our responsibility, so are your neighborhoods your responsibility, not ours. Your clownish leaders will tell you otherwise but they’ve always been your responsibility and they always will be your responsibility. Accept it or don’t, you’re the ones who live in them. There’s more.

Your air conditioned, smart phone equipped, EBT-financed “poverty” doesn’t wash to begin with, yet you’d have us believe poverty causes crime. There’s no payday for assault and rape and random killing. Police say 20% of your criminal violence is related to dope-dealing, okay, business disputes of a sort, but it says the rest of it is largely pro bono. We also notice you have a working knowledge of jury nullification and take pride in not “snitching”, typical gang behavior.

We say “what you think, you do. What you do, you are.” We know what you think—we hear it every waking minute. We know what you do. How could we not know what you are? Just so it gets said, crime causes poverty. It drives away productive people, their businesses and the opportunities you said you wanted. More bad news: you’re free to accuse them of anything you wish but they’re not coming back.

Schools haven’t been educating our kids for a long time. They’re too busy conjuring up new ways to teach yours, in fact, we’re beginning to think yours are the only ones who matter. There’s always some new scheme claiming dazzling success which, in the end, amounts to handing out the answers with the tests, or taking the annoying hard stuff out of the coursework, or entering unearned grades by hand. Whatever they’re doing they’re doing it wrong. Your kids are telling us, in every way they know how, they have neither the interest nor the inclination for academics. Perhaps we should listen. If what they want is “out” it’s worth considering and probably worth encouraging.

You tell us the schools have “failed to meet their needs.” And what are their needs, pray tell? Higher standards and tougher tests? Stricter rules and a dress code? Or some alternate universe where credit is earned for putting teachers in the ER, or for a string of abortions before the tenth grade? If you’d tell us what their needs are we’d at least know what needs we’re failing to meet. Until then we’ll mark it down for what it is, another lame excuse. They’re supposed to be schools, not day care or orphanages or theme parks.

You pester us with the “civil rights movement” of fifty years ago as though it happened last week, with tedious 1960s footage and cloying voice-overs, in an endless loop, like Groundhog Day, decade after decade. It’s understandable, you haven’t met any real resistance since those days. Breaking news: none of it matters any more, it all devolved into just another swindle, an extortion racket, “pay up or we’ll make a stink—and the bad optics are on you”.

Schools now teach something called White Privilege, which claims no overt act is necessary for us to be racist, in fact, absence of such acts is said to be direct evidence. It’s the “original sin” concept in a different wrapper, meaning our putative racism is bone deep and can’t be discharged by good works. Even so, they say we must atone in perpetuity for being white. They suggest we devote our lives in selfless service to you. No. Sorry. Whatever white privilege there may be, it isn’t enough. In fact, being subjected to White Privilege prattle is worth a couple of privileges.

Speaking of privilege, 60% of your college grads—and 20% of all of you—are employed by government. The intent is to create an artificial middle class of course, hence the trivial positions with imaginative titles and weighty salaries. In the lower reaches it’s the quota hires, typically unqualified. It’s a great offer. You pretend you’re doing something useful and we pretend to believe you. The rest of your grads are largely diversity directors, window dressing, teachers of dubious “studies” and improbable “histories”, and similar warehousing schemes for the otherwise unemployable. It’s as good as it’s ever going to get, except for those on the skinny end of the bell curve—for whom we have genuine, i.e., earned respect. You’d be a fool to leave it on the table, for as long as it lasts.

So here’s the deal. If you want to know what we really think of you, the answer is we don’t, unless you’re making yourself unavoidable or we’re cleaning up your latest mess. We can safely rely on you to make astonishingly irresponsible choices and blame us for the consequences. And you’ll demand we make good on them for you. We won’t take a chance on your sincerity ever again. Take it somewhere else, you have no credibility left with us. You’re a net liability, predictable to the point of surety. So we attend to our own lives and our own problems. It’s as it should be. We recommend it. As for you, frankly my dear, we don’t give a damn.

Now as y’all doubtless know already, Ol’ Remus and his Woodpile Report have been missing in action for a month or more. The above is one of his posts…from 2015. But somehow it still seems as fresh as tomorrow morning’s dew, don’t it? Bill says it best:

This one is about five years old, but reads as if it were written yesterday (which should tell you something about the endless, grinding monotony of the left’s approach to things).

They’re eternally running the same old routines from the same old playbook, only, y’jknow, more so.

Go home

Why the red-raw fuck is this depraved, lying, Moslem-terrorist-supporting degenerate even still allowed to stay in this country? Much less hold a seat in the US Congress, for Christ’s sweet sake? Are we really at the stage where treason and/or sedition mean literally nothing anymore?

Never mind; probably best not to answer that one. Or even think about it for too long, really.

Brotherfucker and Immigration Fraudster Ilhan Omar Calls for “Dismantling” of American “Economy and Political Systems”

That’s Ace’s headline, which suffices to tell you pretty much all you really need to know.

It is well-established that the vile “Omar” came here under fraudulent pretenses, which ought to be quite enough to deport her ass toot sweet. She has now graduated from denouncing her foolish host country for every imaginary crime under the sun to calling openly for revolution against it. Can somebody give me a single goddamned reason why we SHOULDN’T give her the heave-ho back to the sub-Saharan shithole that is her true spiritual home so fast it would make her fucking teeth hurt? Just ONE?!?

Interview with a vampire

ZMan does a wicked-fine parody his own self.

The following is a fictional transcript of a negotiation between white people and black people in America over reparations. Representing black people in the negotiations is Nikole Hannah-Jones, a staff writer for New York Times magazine. She is the creator of the 1619 Project, which is an ongoing blood libel against white people. Representing white people of America is the typical white person, who has tried in good faith for generations to figure out how to include blacks in civil society.

White Person: Thank you for agreeing to begin this dialogue. Having read your latest, uh, column on reparations, we, and by “we” I mean white people, have decided that it is time to think about reparations. While we in no way accept the claim that modern whites owe modern blacks anything for the alleged crimes of our ancestors, in the furtherance of peace between the races, we are open to discussing reparations.

Nikole Hannah-Jones: Yes, well, as I said in my post, if true justice and equality are ever to be achieved in the United States, the country must finally take seriously what it owes black Americans. It is time for this country to pay its debt. It is time for reparations.

WP: Presumably, when you say “the country” you mean white people. You don’t expect Asians, newly arrived Africans and Native Americans to be part of this.

NHJ: I don’t understand.

WP: What don’t you understand?

NHJ: I don’t understand what “presumably” means.

WP: Oh, I see. Well, I’m here to speak on behalf of white people. I cannot obligate Asians or newly arrived Africans, or Arabs or anyone else to reparations. You mentioned white people 197 times in your column. You mentioned black people 179 times. Asians, Jews, Native Americans, Arabs and so on were mentioned zero times, so this is about blacks and whites, correct?

NHJ: That’s right. As I said in my piece, generations of white violence against black bodies has to be addressed. There can be no peace until white people accept what they owe to black people. Going back to the very beginning….

WP: I don’t mean to cut you off, but I read your piece and I have read all the other stuff in the 1619 project. Like all white people, I have grown up hearing the long list of grievances of black people. That’s why I’m here. We agree. It is time to negotiate a settlement in order to get racial peace.

NHJ: If black lives are to truly matter in America, this nation must move beyond slogans and symbolism. Citizens don’t inherit just the glory of their nation, but its wrongs too. A truly great country does not ignore or excuse its sins. It confronts them and then works to make them right. If we are to be redeemed, if we are to live up to the magnificent ideals upon which we were founded, we must do what is just.

WP: Yes, well, that’s fine, but can you tell us what you mean by pay its debts? I’ve read all of your work. I’ve read Ta-Nahesi Coates on the subject of reparations. What seems to be missing is the dollar figure.

NHJ: As I said in my piece, generations of white violence against black bodies has to be addressed. There can be no peace until white people accept what they owe to black people….

WP: Right, I’ll stipulate that. In fact, without qualification, I’ll stipulate to all of the claims in your work. What I’m here to discuss is reparations. What number do we put on the check to make black people whole? What is the debt you expect us to pay?

NHJ: As I said in my piece, until white people atone for their crimes against black people and pay their debt…

WP: Hold up, I just said we will stipulate to all of that.

NHJ: I don’t know what you mean by “stipulate”, but white people need to accept their debt to black people. As I wrote in my piece…

WP: Sorry to cut you off again, but that’s what stipulate means. We agree to all the claims made in your work and in the work of others. We’re not here to debate it or hear another recitation of it. We are here to negotiate the check.

NHJ: I don’t think a check can cover the pain of 150 years of suffering…

WP: Okay, then what else do you want? Land, like a black homeland? A ride to the airport? What? Tell me what we have to do to close the books on this.

NHJ: As I said in my piece, until white people atone for their crimes against black people and pay their debt…

WP: I got it. We all get it. That’s why we’re here. What do you want from us?

NHJ: We want justice.

WP: Fine. What does that mean? What do we need to do in order for you to have justice? If it is not a check, then what is it.

NHJ: We still want the check.

But of course they do. Before we write it, though, we’d all better damned well understand that no check will ever be enough to shut them the hell up at last, and end their demands for moremoremoreMORE, no matter how big it might be.

The feel-good video of the week

Been waiting all day to put this one up.


My only real quibble is that instead of locking him inside, somebody should have just shot him in the head. It’s not even arguable that the scumbag already has a sheet as long as Michael Jordan’s arm; he will be immediately turned loose yet again to commit more crimes, and the roundy-round will continue, the offenses escalating until he finally does kill some poor, innocent soul. It’s a story as old and familiar as one of Aesop’s Fairy Tales, just not nearly as satisfying.

So short-circuit the cycle and be done with it, I say. The only good goblin is a dead goblin. Let him repeat his suddenly-penitent “I’se sorry, I’se sorry” to St Peter at the Gates and see where it gets him.
