Caught on Camera: 65-Year-Old Man
Attacked by Women Over Gas Pump

WRC-TV [Washington, DC], by Samia Khan

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 8/24/2014 9:38:24 PM

A 65-year-old man was confronted by a group of women and beaten up in front of his 7-year-old great grandson at a Victorville, California, gas station Friday afternoon in an incident that was caught on camera, officials said. (Snip) The victim, Danny Froschauer, said the fight was over a gas pump. Froschauer said the women in another other car started yelling "we was going to go there, get your car out of there" after he had already pulled into the desired pump. Froschauer said he refused and that the women then began approaching his car and yelling.

Comments:
Mild-mannered senior citizen flaunts his White Privilege by failing to yield a gasoline pump to a pride (is that the plural?) of former slaves, receives a humiliating shiner in front of his grandson. Isn´t modern life grand?

Not a word about race and the video is not as clear as one would hope, but those hairdos and the conduct and the stealing of a cell phone during the altercation tell us what race his attackers were.

I had a black neighbor who became verbally aggressive when she found out I was having the property lines surveyed on my city lot. Took offense. Said surveyors weren´t accurate, knew nothing, bla, bla, bla.

She was talking about putting up a fence or wall between our properties. Was I concerned? You betcha.

Not too long afterward she lost the home, which she (a bank employee) had purchased out of foreclosure, in her own foreclosure. Was I glad to see her go? You betcha.

The "women" are worse than the men. I know a Nigerian man who told me he would never date or marry an american black woman. Thinks they´re loud, obnoxious, classless and have "a very unladylike quality". Also thinks they use men for their own selfish purposes. Seems to me he´s described a whole lot of them.

I´m telling you, the ´women of color´ are deeply, deeply pished.

They had little hope of finding suitable mates eight years ago. But the the colored messiah offered hope that maybe there were some promising candidates after all.

Then he turns out to be as lazy and useless as the thugs from their potential dating pool. A total sham.

They´re not happy, and whitey is going to pay. Natch.

When she said she had prepaid for that pump, I would have started pumping-maybe in the tank, maybe on her.

Someone stole my parking place once after I had waited for some time in a full parking lot.
Then they were afraid to get out of the car and leave.

My first job out of high school was a gas pump jockey at a US military base in Europe. Saw a similar thing happen between a young pigmented airman and a captain, both in uniform. He wisely did not attack the captain physically, but did enough UCMJ violations with his mouth to keep the JAG office busy for a while.
Considering the climate at the time, probably nothing happened to him. The military was bending over backwards to tell them how much better they were than everyone else.

OP, please don´t use the word, pride, in relation to these animals. Pride specifically relates to lions. These were a much lower kind of animal for whom pride is not applicable.

Each time I see the victimization of a white person and the coarsening of our culture by this type of individual, I become more convinced of the need for segregation...or worse.

I have had them park on the opposite side of the pump I was using and then expect me to pay for their gas. I will likely be in for it the next time I point out that they should have used their money for gas instead of Slurpees for the kids in the back seat.

Memphis, Tenn. — With Memphis seeing a rash of youth violence recently, WREG decided to ask young people what can stop it. Their answer…nothing. Two men, who gave only nicknames, told WREG they thought of the Kroger mob attack as “fun.” “The Kroger attack… That’s just what kids do, our generation, I mean,” one of the men said.

The college announced Monday that Abu-Jamal, who received his Bachelor of Arts from Goddard in 1996, was selected by the Fall 2014 graduating class. Abu-Jamal, 60, was sentenced to death for the 1981 murder of Officer Daniel Faulkner. (Snip) “As a reflection of Goddard’s individualized and transformational educational model, our commencements are intimate affairs where each student serves as her or his own valedictorian, and each class chooses its own speaker,” said Goddard College Interim President Bob Kenny.

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.

The sympathetic news media is avoiding mentioning his name, instead they are blaming the lack of a football intro for the massive collapse in ratings Sunday night for President Barack Obama’s appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Americans turned away from watching Obama even though he was being interviewed about the nation’s new war on ISIS. For example, Deadline Hollywood didn’t even mention Obama’s 60 Minutes interview when reporting on the drop in viewers. “With no football lead-in, CBS’ Sunday lineup fell from last week. As expected, the drop was steepest at 7 PM, with 60 Minutes (1.1) off by 69%

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Multiple sources confirmed to Fox News the incident, which took place in an elevator during Obama´s Sept. 16 visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. The incident was first reported by The Washington Post and the Washington Examiner.

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview
