The right’s black crime obsession
Salon, by Brian Beutler

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 8/23/2013 9:16:44 PM

Conservative media´s total fixation on black-on-black and black-on-white crime isn´t going to end. Here´s why. There are a few black people up to no good in this country and Fox News is on it! So is Drudge Report. Vigilantly on the lookout, 24 hours a day, for stories about black youths behaving badly. This isn’t a particularly new phenomenon, but it’s intensified noticeably in the past year for at least two reasons. Conservatives, particularly white conservatives, feel a burning urgency to find a racial counterweight to the aftermath of Trayvon Martin’s shooting (including President Obama’s public comments about the incident), a

My brain hurts after attempting to read this twisted logic ! I really do try to understand the reasoning that differentiates the thinking of liberals vs. conservatives. But this one is beyond me:

FTA "So let’s review: George Zimmerman wouldn’t have shot Trayvon Martin if he hadn’t been profiling by race." No, Mr. Beutler, George Zimmerman would not have shot Trayvon Martin if Trayvon Martin hadn´t been attempting to kill George Zimmerman.

I´ve tried, I´ve had it ... I give up. It is impossible to rationally explain liberal thinking and I´m not even going to try any longer.

Fox and Drudge don´t have to look too hard. Interesting that black on black crime is the norm and rampant, but the libs don´t care at all about that. Apparently most blacks don´t either, just worrying about what George Zimmerman is up to.

The right is obsessed with trying to understand why the left constantly denies the obvious.
They deny that:
*Blacks commit a disproportional amount of crime
*Terrorists are mostly Islamic and are driven by their religion.
*Christians are not terrorists.
*The Tea Party does not consist of racists.
*The Tea Party does not consist of terrorists.
*High taxes retard business and lowers everyones standard of living.
*Heavy regulation hurts small business, often helps big business, and lowers everyones standard of living.
*More government is rarely the answer.
*Free Market Capitalism creates the highest standard of living for everyone.
*Communism lowers the standard of living while not resulting in everything being fairer
*Communism always results in oppression and death no matter who´s in charge.
*Nazi´s were left wing.

So, as the black community implodes, as black teen males gun each other down in a feral sense of masculinity, as the male role model is socially murdered by a government plantation system that destroys dignity and a sense of purpose, it is the "white obsession" with black crime that is the problem! There is little hope so long as Planned Parenthood continues to profit from the murder of black children. There is little hope so long as there are so few real men to raise the children who long for someone to show them how to be a man and a woman. There is little hope so long as the Feral Government continues to divide and destroy our national fabric.

White obsession? More like white grieving at the loss of so much potential. Grief at the destruction of so many futures. Sadness that, as our society has changed, the will of the power elite to reignite old hatreds and bitterness grows as they cling to power while the nation crumbles.

White man´s burden? No. It´s white man´s disappointment that all that has been won to the advantage of all is being destroyed for political convenience and the hope of a Progressive Third Reich that can rule for one thousand years.

More deception from a self-loathing, white-hating liberal. White America does NOT have to search to find a counterweight to the Zimmerman self-defense trial. Black-on-white violent crime is a daily reality that threatens the lives of non-privileged-race Americans. Salon is a propagandist organization whose purpose is to hide truth, to hide reality.

White America is under attack, and the media and the U.S. federal government supports the violence.

Paula Deen admits to having used a racist word once many years ago, and she is declared a racist and her career is destroyed.

Blacks attack and kill both other blacks and whites on pretty much a daily basis all over America, and that is no big deal.

Yeah, that is pretty much totally "logical" to the lie-beral mindset.

And you are a racist if you disagree...

So the "right" is the only people that elect black representatives from white districts (something leftist Marxists can´t do).

Why can´t a black woman represent New York in the Senate? Why is it always a rich white career liberal Marxist?

FTA: There are a few black people up to no good in this country and Fox News is on it!

One black male in three has a felony conviction during his lifetime. That´s not "a few."

A 75% illegitimacy rate currently [about]. That´s not "a few" making decisions highly-destructive to themselves and others, and often highly-expensive to honest taxpayers.

Brian, how´s about you get out more? Go where you can get some nice anecdotes about the rarity of black criminals? ´K?

[Well, after you go to legal zoom and write a will first, of course....]

#8, #13: IIRC, 2% +/- is about the actual percentage of the black males in the overall population who commit that wildly-disproportionate number of murders.

So what do the numbers have to be before: a. the problem is generally acknowledged? and b. appropriately-serious measures are taken to stop these murders and other crimes?

"[E]vils which are not cured in one way will cure themselves in another."
~~ Thomas Jefferson

If the gov´t continues not simply to fail to protect us, but to seize more and more of our money to pay for programs that create and exacerbate and protect a lawless, often feral, predatory, evil, parasitic segment of the population, at some point there will be push-back.

When you refer to the carnage of black-on-black violence and the sharp increase in black-on-white violence as "black youths behaving badly", you are exposing your racist attitude of lowered expectations
for blacks in a civilized society. And since blacks generations ago got a raw deal, liberals must give them "slack" in perpetuity if they are to feel good about themselves. The solution is to force liberal fools such as Beutler to live in black violence-filled neighborhoods indefinitely until they themselves are victims of such violence, or until they "get it".

As usual, a liberal lapdog misses the point. Conservatives aren´t looking for black-on-white crime, we´re ticked off because the left has an obsession with white-on-black crime to the point they race-bait and manufacture incidents to promote their agenda.

At the same time they ignore black on white crime and black on black crime because it doesn´t fit their narrative.

However, what´s really at issue here is that the black community, who MLK prayed to be accepted as equals by the majority is so rapidly alienating everyone with the high percentage of truly horrific immorality, that many begin to wish them gone - which I think is the intent...

I think the Democrats are still nursing their KKK-like hatred for their former slaves and are hoping to treat them the way the Palestinians would like to treat the Jews.

This idiot is hacked off because word is getting out that blacks aren´t the victimized saints that the left paints them to be.

Most of the stories about black crime is to expose the hypocrisy and double standards of the left and media and what they get roiled about.Crime is just a symptom of a bigger disease called the welfare state but don´t expect the left to recognize that.You have rich trust fund brats who´s behavior is just as bad but they can afford it to do it in style.

Obama´s war on the job construction in this country has overridden people´s desire to get ahead.It´s showing up with young whites,so it has to be even worse for blacks,who will never see a job while Obama´s president.

When blacks go to a shooting range they put their own feet up as a target.Their attacking white people will cause even more to lose jobs because most employers are white.Small business simply can´t afford to hire walking lawsuit cases either.

Sophistry like this is necessary to protect and sustain Leftist fantasy ideology with its demonology of white racism.

The fundamental problem for Leftists is reality. Another word for reality is truth. Leftist fantasy ideology attempts to substitute private political beliefs for reality and truth - with predictable results. There is always friction, churn, dissonance, contradiction etc. that Leftist ideologues must somehow account for and explain away in order to preserve their private illusions.

This piece is a good example of the remarkable lengths to which a victim of Leftist fantasy ideology is prepared to go to avoid confronting reality. The writer has thrown up a great cloud of smoke to complicate and obscure something that is actually very simple and obvious - in fact, too simple and obvious. Hence the need to work so hard to sow confusion and perplexity where none need exist.

Leftists believe they are the only ones allowed to talk about race and that talking about race means sanctifying black victims and demonizing white oppressors. That is what a Leftist means by "a conversation about race." Anything else, especially anything that implicates blacks as responsible perpetrators, is verboten.

JournoList members reportedly coordinated their messages in favor of Barack Obama and the Democrats, and against Sarah Palin and the Republican Party. JournoList was founded in 2007 and was closed down in early 2010.[1] "

The missing Malaysia Airlines plane was ´thrown around like a fighter jet´ just after it lost contact with the authorities in a bid to dodge radar, Malaysian military investigators believe. Flight MH370, which disappeared more than a month ago en route to Beijing, is thought to have climbed to heights of 45,000ft - 10,000ft above its normal altitude - before plummeting to just below 5,000ft. The new lead in the investigation comes as the methodical search being carried out in the Indian Ocean continues amid fears that the jet´s black box may have run out of battery.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Obama has unilaterally changed immigration, health care, and welfare laws, among others, according to Palin, and she said that he has sent a message with his actions that an elite crew will run the government as they see fit instead of "We the People." She also said there needs to be "new energy" in government instead of more

Well, that didn´t take long. As my colleague Edward Malnick reports, the first gay Church of England priest – a canon, no less – today married his boyfriend. Canon Jeremy Pemberton, 58, a divorced hospital chaplain and father of five, wed his long-term partner Laurence Cunnington, 51. We´re not told where, but obviously it wasn´t in an C of E church. That´s against the law. But they may well be able to have their marriage blessed in church because that´s only "against the rules" as opposed to illegal. Campaigners predicted that Canon Pemberton would be the first of many. I think

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally.

The departure of Kathleen Sebelius from President Barack Obama’s cabinet removes a focal point for criticism over Obamacare’s troubled rollout, right at a moment when the White House can blunt attacks with enrollment numbers that exceeded targets. Senate confirmation hearings on the president’s choice to succeed Sebelius as Health and Human Services secretary, budget director Sylvia Mathews Burwell, will give Republicans days of media exposure for their criticism of a program that remains unpopular. Those hearings will now be held months ahead of midterm congressional elections, helping diminish the impact on voters. Sebelius’s departure also addresses demands from some Democrats for a change

BUNKERVILLE -- The gathering of rancher Cliven Bundy´s cattle in northeast Clark County has been stopped by the director of the Bureau of Land Management. Bundy is meeting this morning with Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie to discuss a possible solution to his dispute with the BLM. Metro Officer Jesse Roybal confirmed that Gillespie was in the Bunkerville area this morning to meet with Bundy. The BLM had been using contract cowboys to round up Bundy´s 900 head of cattle that have been grazing over 600,000 square acres in northeast Clark County for more than 20 years without his payment of grazing fees.

Hundreds of thousands of U.S. citizens are getting shocking letters in their mailboxes instead of tax refund checks – nastygrams informing them that the federal government has seized their money to repay debts their parents decades-old debts that they never settled. In some cases, they´re debts the parents never knew they had. And no one warned their children. The 2008 Farm Bill included a single line that made it possible, allowing the government for the first time to hunt down individual taxpayers who have owed Uncle Sam money for more than ten years. If the debtor is deceased, according to the Federal Trade

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
