Open season on Matt Drudge and Andrew Breibart I guess.

Orders from the top.

TWM said...

I agree the race war is disgusting. Awareness of it, however, is a good thing.

Scott M said...

The narrative seems to imply that whites are doing these sorts of things (public fights, destructive flash mobs, etc) in equal numbers/incidents. In fact, given the sheer numbers of whites, and all other things being equal, you would think there would be a much greater number of whites causing such disruptions. This doesn't seem to be the case, however, so what's the difference? Fewer video-enabled cell phones in white neighborhoods?

We need a federal program to research this asap (probably the same guys that put a shrimp on a conveyor belt) and another to provide the funds to address the cell-phone gap and get whites up to the same level of video-phone ownership so their shenanigans can be caught with equal frequency.

Fen said...

this world of race riots and constant violent attacks on innocent Caucasians exists only in the imaginations of Matt Drudge and ...the FBI Hate Crime stats that prove blacks are the most racist demographic in America.

Hell, even the local black elders (Miami riots) admitted there are serious problems with young black men. Something has gone off the rails.

Scott M said...

Something has gone off the rails.

Fathers...completely unnecessary.

Fen said...

Its the Democrat Plantation.

Looks like Republicans will have to free them all over again.

rhhardin said...

It's Moynahan's prediction. When it turns out to be true, it's transformed.

Fen said...

Fathers...completely unnecessary.

See? Everyone knows what the main problem is.

But Alex Pareene never got to play her race card, so...

Shouting Thomas said...

Read two paragraphs before I realized that this is a post about a quarrel between two writers... in other words, it's about absolutely nothing.

However, I want commenters to be able to argue about something, so I'll take this BS seriously.

The theme of this quarrel, as I gathered from two paragraphs, is that favorite white liberal idiot: you're a racist if you notice that the vast majority of crime is committed by blacks. Blacks make up a huge proportion of the prison inmate population for this very reason, but the obvious lesson of this does not resonate among white liberal idiots.

So, Drudge stands accused of noticing the obvious. He's guilty of a thought crime.

Fred4Pres said...

But he hasn't mentioned Andrew Weiner's wiener.

Hoosier Daddy said...

So I don't get it. Did Drudge make these stories up or is he just a bad person for pointing them out?

Fred4Pres said...

So when people act violently in public, you cannot mention it if they are a minority. Because that is just a disgusting race war awareness campaign.

Okay. Glad to know that new rule.

Curious George said...

Here in Milwaukee a large group of teenagers destroyed a Boston Store at a local mall. For "fun". Any of you that find Drudge racist wanna bet that the perps where white? I'll take "not white".

BTW, this was not the first incident of this type at Mayfair Mall...or even the second.

Hoosier Daddy said...

Actually that kid being beat to death with a 2x4 was national news.

Andy R. said...

You missed a great opportunity to run a poll with this post.

Scott M said...

Blacks make up a huge proportion of the prison inmate population for this very reason

You have to cede that there is a problem with conviction rates, though. I'm not sure just pointing to the prison population will properly frame the debate. Maybe if you only look at convictions for violent crime, but I'm still betting there's a disparagement between sentencing along racial lines.

I think one of the biggest problems with this issue, outside the clear-cut fatherless family epidemic in the black community, is that there's simply no way to argue, even on good faith, without all the racial/emotional baggage.

Thus, it will never "get fixed". If it's going to improve, it's going to have to be organic. In other words, young black men and women, slowly and in greater numbers over a long stretch of time, realizing that they can do better then their folks and grandparents.

Fen said...

Should read the comments that Drudge links to. Everyone is trying to say it was the black kids, without saying they were black.

Huge barrier to a solution. Well-meaning people are afraid to even name the problem.

Kinda like Obama's "lets pretend the suicide bombers aren't islamic terrorists" game.

The Drill SGT said...

If it bleeds, it leads is hardly a slogan created by the digital press.

Fen said...

Back in college, we had a drinking game surrounding all the "Cops [City]" episodes.

If the perp fleeing the squad cars got out and ran, you had to drink if he was black.

Don't try this at home. One of our buds was an EMT.

Chip S. said...

What I don't understand is why sites like Salon aren't seeking out all those videos of rampaging white youths that Drudge is refusing to link to. Is it nothing more than the left's well-known reluctance to play the race card?

I liked Pareene's use of ironic quotation marks in the passing remark about voter "intimidation" in Philadelphia. It certainly bolstered my credence in Alex's dedication to telling a story without using cheap tricks. Same with the reference to an alleged fondness of Drudge's for pics of Olympic wrestlers.

Why is it again that the left keeps thinking that implications of homosexuality are effective ways to undermine people's credibility? I keep forgetting the answer to that.

Shouting Thomas said...

Alex Pareene is a pretty white sounding name.

Why do young white kids get so caught up in this sanctimonious preening about race?

Why is it so appealing to them?

Another item making the rounds of Facebook is a posting by a vegan about how vegetarianism made her sick. She had to start eating meat when her hair fell out. This has provoked endless hysteria among the sanctimonious.

Why is world saving and sanctimonious preening so widespread among young white kids? Would it help if they were plunged into poverty? Would it give them some perspective?

Fen said...

Alex: Stoking those racial fears goes beyond cynical political point-scoring. To devote so much energy to attempting to make whites terrified of blacks is just vile. (disclaimer: I do cross to the other side of the street when I happen upon a group of black teens)

Henry said...

Pareene is right that violent crime rates are low and sensationalist stories about crime (or riots, or child abduction, or breast implants, or what have you) encourages a disfunctional sense of reality. That's why I don't spend any time reading columnists like Alex Pareene.

What a paucity of examples he ropes into his little corral of outrage! Apparently Drudge has frontpaged a few high school beatings and some urban fights. Plus, horrors, he highlighted the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation incident.

Pareene calls those thugs "poll watchers."

Alex, this is stupid stuff. Don't be a lightweight. Pull in an academic. Get some journo-statician to count all the stories, apply a method that filters out the non-supporting evidence, and tell us that Drudge is x% more likely to feature black crime than white.

Because he's vile. You already know your conclusion.

Scott M said...

Would it help if they were plunged into poverty?

You don't have to plunge them into poverty. You simply have to kick the dads out of 70% (thereabouts) of the households, put on simmer, and wait for 20 years or so.

The answer is so stunningly obvious, I'm continually amazed at how head-in-the-sand everyone acts about it. But that amazement eventually wears off and I go back to the day to day realities of raising my four kids.

Shouting Thomas said...

Maybe if you only look at convictions for violent crime, but I'm still betting there's a disparagement between sentencing along racial lines.

Why are you trying to find an excuse for blacks?

I'm inclined to think blacks are getting precisely what they deserve. They may even be getting a break because of an overloaded justice system that favors plea bargaining. Since blacks tend to live in the urban areas where the justice system is most overburdened, I'd be willing to bet that this is more likely.

Shouting Thomas said...

Yes, the key to raising healthy kids is the two parent home... and I mean a Mom and a Dad.

Scott M said...

Why are you trying to find an excuse for blacks?

Why are you claiming I'm trying to find an excuse for anyone? I'm pointing out the problem of hanging your hat on that argument. I'm convinced there's a severe problem and I'm pretty damned sure who's at the root of it.

Andy R. said...

For example, I would love to hear people answer the question: What is a bigger problem in America?

a) Systemic racism against black people, especially black male youth.

b) The threat to white people from the looming/ongoing black-led race war.

RuyDiaz said...

You have to cede that there is a problem with conviction rates, though.

Yes, the conviction rate is too low.

Shouting Thomas said...

Andy, there is no on "looming/ongoing black-led race war," except in your imagination.

Even liberal whites, who blather endlessly about racism, solve the problem by staying away from the blacks who must be feared.

Thus, the most liberal whites in America, Manhattan whites, live in neighborhoods that are lilly white and safe. From those lilly white, safe neighborhoods, they lecture people in Brooklyn and Jersey City about the perils of racism.

Titus said...

From Boston to South Carolina to Charlotte to Miami there were huge fights.

This is big news.

And yes, they were all done by large groups of young blacks.

The video of the gunfight I saw in Miami looked like it was in some third world country.

For pointing them out, apparently. Because what happens in Chicago stays in Chicago, at least that's what I got from the article.

Brennan said...

How come the only people Alex names are white people? Aren't the black subjects of the story worth naming? Derrion Albert was really murdered because he kid from another school that closed because it became a military academy. That was an actual story, just not to Alex.

Amy said...

Would it help if they were plunged into poverty?

Yes, actually. And not even plunged into it, but located in proximity to it. My uber-liberal 20-something daughters rented a house last year that was across the street from the projects and on a drug corner. It was a horrendous year and quite the education. They were MUCH more careful when it was time to pick a new place to move to, and ...they are much quieter about all things racial now.
Wish we could implement this at a larger level.

traditionalguy said...

In a melting pot of ethnic groups and facial types and skin shades sudden eruptions of tribal violence is not the surprise. The way we all usually get along so well is the surprise. Drudge does highlight the odd instances of Springtime tribal war dances with gang coming of age violence acted out. And Clint Eastwood's Gran Torino film used that factoid too. The reason we will hear about such things everyday for 18 months is not Drudge. It is the 2012 Obama campaign designed to focus on all racial differences hoping to stir up the old White Guilt that elected our Marxist President the first time. Than God Haley barbour went away.

Triangle Man said...

The fights in South Boston were between groups of young blacks? I don't think so.

Jose_K said...

the FBI Hate Crime stats that prove blacks are the most racist demographic in America.
Hispanics killed a afroamerican girl for crossing the wrong street in LA.
Hispanics in Florida use kelo like tactic to whitewash, the see themselves as white, their neighborhoods
And asians, alll of them, hate afroamericans and each other.Durng the Rodney riots , asian business were the main target of afroamericans , something must explain that.

They organized on facebook and came from all over the Boston area.

Check out the Boston.com story.

South Boston is not the bastion of Irish anymore either.

So do all blacks stand under indictment here?

Scott M said...

Looks like it just said "Boston". Apparently there are other parts of Boston outside southie.

Titus said...

Many of them came from Savin Hill which is affectionately called Stab and Kill. Which is in Dorchester. Dorchester is very black and quite gay as well and lots of Vietnamese as well.

The Crack Emcee said...

This doesn't bother me at all. What bothers me is - with the exception of Oprah, West and Cain - no other blacks get seen or heard out there. That's what pisses blacks off that I know:

It's like whites pick what part of black America to highlight, and then that defines the group as separate from everyone else.

Call me whenever you want to end that "separate from everyone else" part,...

Titus said...

South Boston also has a large amount of projects which has a large amount of black people living in them.

I know Boston.

She's missed a great opportunity since she started this blog. Assuming a political blog has some great purpose in society lol.

Re: an Althouse poll it's pretty much a self-fulfilling prophecy, much like a foxnews poll ie this blog is 80/90% conservative and polls reflect this disparity.

Which is fine as political blog polls are pretty much useless!

AJ Lynch said...

One trend I noticed is many of these incidents seem to occur in the places [i.e Miami, Boston] Titus considers fabulous. So it must be Titus' fault!

New liberal mantra:

Child beaten up on a bus for explicitly racial reasons: no big deal.

Adults claiming to be intimidated because a single cop car was within a mile of a voting center: proof "democracy" has ended.

There is no end to the idiocy of the left.

MadisonMan said...

Meh. I think if you link to all manner of stories over years, then anyone can cherry pick a trend out of your links.

You find what you look for.

edutcher said...

Sad to say, this is the result of a couple of generations of indoctrination by the media, schools, "churches" (the Jeremiah Wright kind), and government.

The big Dirty Little Secret of American life is that black racism has been cultivated and sometimes runs riot. Some years ago in Cincinnati, whites were singled out by blacks and this past weekend we've seen more examples.

Is it that far over the top to say the Left has cultivated an animalistic attitude in inner city blacks and now some have gone feral?

shiloh said...

"Still a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest ...

Luke Lea said...

@Andy R: "For example, I would love to hear people answer the question: What is a bigger problem in America?

a) Systemic racism against black people, especially black male youth.

b) The threat to white people from the looming/ongoing black-led race war."

Concerning point a, the biggest thing hurting the prospects of black male youth in America is uncontrolled low-skilled immigration from Mexico, something our liberal and presumably anti-racist elites explicitly condone.

In the reconstruction following Katrina a black youth at a construction site asked why no blacks were being hired. The foreman explained it was because American blacks weren't willing to sleep out on the ground at night.

The truly amazing thing to me at least is that the Black Caucus in Congress does nothing to protest this outrageous situation. Have they just written off their ghetto brethern? If so, it is class prejudice not race prejudice.

Indeed, elite indifference to working-class Americans is one of the hallmarks of the baby-boom generation (my generation, alas). When the hardhats and students went their separate ways during the Vietnam war it turned out to be a major turning point in American politics.

As for point b) there is no systematic racism in America. Unless you want to count affirmative action policies at elite universities that discriminate against gentile Caucasions. Now that is systematic. Just one more outrage of the baby-boom generation.

God, it's depressing.

The destruction of fatherhood is not racial, it's cultural.

If you think white people are immune to this, you're mistaken.

Marshal said...

" Shouting Thomas said...

Why is it so appealing to them?"

So called liberals learned long ago the key for successful indoctrination is reaching the children young. White guilt is preached at every level of education, and intensifies dramatically in Universities once the targets leave the generally less radical influence of their parents.

It takes mental discipline to stand up against constant accusations of racism. Most kids these days simply don't have it. It's not in them to reject the prevailing wisdom of people they believe are enlightened. It's so much easier to accept that somehow guilt passes to those who share white skin. Their parents don't prepare them sufficiently because radical academia's media allies actively prevent anyone outside the system from understanding what is going on.

Triangle Man said...

Looks like it just said "Boston". Apparently there are other parts of Boston outside southie.

The nationally reported fights involving hundreds of teens were on Carson Beach in South Boston. The Boston Globe story did not include any pictures of the crowds, but Titus clarified where the kids came from above.

The only picture I could find is here. I stand corrected.

Triangle Man said...

Chip S said "Why is it again that the left keeps thinking that implications of homosexuality are effective ways to undermine people's credibility? I keep forgetting the answer to that.


1) Conservatives will shun gays.
2) "Family values" conservatives who turn out to be gay will be shunned as hypocrites.

Scott M said...

If you think white people are immune to this, you're mistaken.

Agreed. If white families had been carved up and spat out by decades of bad public policy, marching hand in hand with severely lowered expectations and apologists, likely the outcome would have had the same impact.

So...where does that leave us since the above didn't happen to whites, but did to blacks?

Chip S. said...

TM, So your argument is that Salon's innuendo is aimed at the prejudices of its many conservative readers?

Saint Croix said...

Liberals get knocked for being "soft on crime," but where they are really soft is on the issue of marriage and fatherhood.

Motherhood is determined by biology. You're pregnant, you give birth, that's your kid.

Fatherhood is insecure. Maybe you made her pregnant. Maybe some other guy made her pregnant.

Since fatherhood is insecure, we created this institution called "marriage". It is to identify in public the father of any children the woman has.

This is why the woman takes the man's name, by the way. To identify in public these children as belonging to the man. To identify him as the father.

When the family breaks down and there is a divorce, the mother usually gets the kids. Why? Because she is biologically closer to her children than the father is. She gave birth to them.

Single moms (or infanticide) is the biological status quo. If you want civilization--which requires that man be civilized--you need to think about fatherhood and think about protecting it.

Fatherhood is man at his best. Respect that or we are all fucked.

E.M. Davis said...

This was written in 1996. It's still pertinent 15 years later.

Scott M said...

Fatherhood is man at his best. Respect that or we are all fucked.

Tell that to Hollywood and all the ad agencies in LA, Chicago, and New York.

ET1492 said...

I think we should be more tolerant of racism, as long as it's just words and feelings. With each passing generation, I think we are becoming a more color-blind society.

I've always considered my grandfather a racist (against blacks) but I love and respect him anyway, despite that flaw. He was the son of Polish immigrants and grew up poor in an ethnically-segregated city where he was one of many underclass minorities. There was a lot of antagonism between different ethnic groups and I'm sure his feelings about race were ingrained in him by his peers and experiences. We used to joke, not to his face, that he rooted for sports teams based on which had the fewest black guys.

You know who his favorite presidential candidate is? Herman Cain.

Oligonicella said...

The Crack Emcee --

Call me whenever you want to end that "separate from everyone else" part,...

Who is this "you" you refer to? Am I being lumped in with everyone else?

Bruce Hayden said...

I do find this an interesting attack on Drudge. The left has been after him since he helped get Clinton impeached. And, what is humorous is how many of their leaders follow Drudge, despite this.

My view is that the gang clashes, etc., as well as the number in prison, are a class issue, much more than a race issue. They only become a racial issue because the demographic most harmed by LBJ's Great Society were the Blacks.

As a side note, if I could have asked Moynihan just one question, it would have been why he ultimately flip-flopped on the race issue after being elected to the Senate. We read his book on the black family as freshmen in college, and it has stuck with me - even back in the late LBJ Presidency, so soon after his Great Society was implemented, the consequences for the Blacks were already becoming evident. Paying the poor to evict fathers from families is not good for civil order. And, Blacks are more likely to fall into this than others - not because they are Black, but because they were poor in later 1960s, and throughout the 1970s, and by the time that welfare was reformed, much of the damage had been done. Blacks had gone from having a higher than average marriage rate to one significantly below average, with a significant portion of their kids being born into fatherless families.

So, apparently Drudge is maybe, possibly, guilty of pointing out the elephant inconveniently in the room. We shall see if this racial shaming works to shut him up.

phx said...

I think we should be more tolerant of racism...

I actually do too. At least we need to recognize what an earlier poster said, there's no way to argue or discuss this without all the racial baggage everyone brings to the table.

In the face of that, one of the things that reasonable people can do is agree to talk and listen to each other, and be patient when the racist cat is out of the bag.

Probably not enough people are saying we should be tolerant of racism, or saying why we should.

Alex said...

When 70% of the violent crimes are committed by blacks, that's something to be AWARE of.

Alex said...

Crack - it might be something related to "New Age" thinking.

Pogo said...

Thug culture arose from the the Democratic party-created fatherless ghettos, the plantations run by the State, where the serfs stay voluntarily.

Thug culture has been lionized in music and movies, by the media, sports, and -most recently- the White House.

it is misogynistic and misanthropic, hate-filled acquisitive, jealous, and destructive.

And now thug violence is hair-trigger, and some mass thuggery is even planned.

Thanks again, Democrats!

Pogo said...

But Drudge has sinned for noticing.

Alex said...

Look white America just doesn't really care too much about black crime UNTIL it comes to their doorstep.

Bruce Hayden said...

Single moms (or infanticide) is the biological status quo. If you want civilization--which requires that man be civilized--you need to think about fatherhood and think about protecting it.

Fatherhood is man at his best. Respect that or we are all fucked
.

The problem there is that that conflicts with feminism, that essentially proclaims that women can do whatever men can do, just as well. And this is one of those things that they cannot - they cannot father children, and as a result, boys from fatherless families are far more likely to not be civilized, and girls to not have the self-confidence in themselves and role models required to break this cycle.

It is a vicious cycle for both the girls and the boys. The girls accept their lot of having sex with guys who biologically father children on multiple women, without marrying any of them. And, they provide a role model for their daughters of putting up with this.

Boys on the other hand need to be civilized by marriage and fatherhood. This removes them from their juvenile gangs and integrates them into society. But, in fatherless families, their role models are those guys who are fathering kids on as many women as possible, without taking responsibility for any of them.

Alex said...

Lefties are playing this game of "let's pretend black crime doesn't exist". Anyone who dares cite a statistic is a KKK klansman.

roesch-voltaire said...

I think Drudge knows his audience and their perceptions of the world and therefore the slant or the linking of some stories which included only examples of date/domestic violence causing me to wonder why link these stories. I also think that a growing percentage of black culture seems to becoming part of the underclass and many black male teens are adrift, skill less and jobless. Often their crimes are against those who have some economic wealth, no matter what the race, but that story is more complex.

It's a little puzzling that the police execution of an unarmed black man in Miami prompts a discussion about absentee fatherhood on this board. Maybe the cops didn't have fathers?

Unarmed?

From your link:
"officers shot and killed the driver of a car that allegedly struck a Hialeah officer, then led police on a three-block chase down Collins Avenue, crashing into cars, running up on the sidewalk and nearly crushing bicycle officers before skidding to a stop at 13th Street."

No gun, but he had a 3000 pound weapon, and the story says the others in the car bailed ...with their guns.

PatCA said...

The media must never mention minority rioters or criminals. Cries of racism from loons like Alex will soon follow, and your reputation will be forever tainted.

The producer of the show Cops confirms this.

franglo said...

Why is it always ok for police to fatally shoot people on SUSPICION of weapons? On THREATS? I don't care even if the suspects are clearly guilty of crimes. We are talking about human life. The police can retreat. They can disable the vehicle and wait for reinforcements behind cover. There are ways of ensuring public safety without resorting to deadly force. Yet over and over again in this country we have people who should be defending human life advocating for this low standard. It's public summary execution, not justice.

Some people won't be happy until it's guns drawn for every traffic stop and mandatory tasers for mouthing off. Some people love a police state. They are called fascists.

The police should not have the power to kill citizens without trial. No one should stand for that. If you are so fearful of your line of work that your first response to danger is shooting your gun, don't become a cop.

Pogo said...

There are many times when it is not possible to ensure the cop's personal safety, let alone the public's, without resorting to deadly force.

Luke Lea - As for point b) there is no systematic racism in America. Unless you want to count affirmative action policies at elite universities that discriminate against gentile Caucasions. Now that is systematic. Just one more outrage of the baby-boom generation.

God, it's depressing.


1. Another group besides Gentile whites subject to dramatic discrimination by affirmative action policies are Asian Americans of Chinese, Japanese, Korean ancestry. Who are told by many schools that there are so many A average Asians with high SATs that too many would "hurt diversity" - And by working so hard for grades and then after school at family businesses they lack the "rich life experiences" of a black drug dealer's daughter who was involved in community activism at the Projects.

2. Why say "Gentile Whites?" because it is accurate. Jews are significantly overrepresented at top schools - not just on merit but "knowing some one who knows someone inside Admissions" and ability to pay. (Inc. cash or other consideration for that inside person).

3. Like Jews, there are a few other white groups that do well in admissions from work & merit, or because they symbolize "cherished diversity" - daughter from a Wyoming ranch, son of an Iraqi "refugee".

4. Same deal within the Hispanic and Asian population - the two Jews in LBJ's Administration that drew up the first EEO guidelines "created" races. Only subethnic groups from CERTAIN Pacific Islands are Pacific Islanders. A white from Cuba is Hispanic or from old white Spanish families in NM and California - but not a white from Spain or Portugal - but the white Portugee from the Azores is Hispanic.
And white Cuban and Puerto Rican hispanics benefit from bonus points, while Mestizos miss out. And many 'non-privileged Asians" originally from places like the Philippines lose the 8-12% Asian limit spots in California to wealthier children from Japanese and Chinese American families - or Overseas Chinese.

Why is it always ok for police to fatally shoot people on SUSPICION of weapons?

Next time, franglo can wait and see.

We can all chip in for the flowers at the funeral.

Black bike week was in Myrtle Beach, not Miami. Miami may have some kind of disturbance, but the crime spree of black bike week was in Myrtle Beach.

Drudge is only providing balance to the MSM's distortions. When I read a MSM report of some sort of crime, and the race of the perps are not mentioned, I know they are some sort of minority. Race is only mentioned when the perps are white.

Race is only mentioned when the perps are white.

Ah...just like all those Brinks Home Security commercials on TV.

Chip S. said...

Yeah, but they're kinda swarthy whites in those ads. You never see any gingers.

F'n racists.

wv monzi: Looks like Weiner's monzi scheme has collapsed.

Scott M said...

As a ginger and the father of at least one ginger (that I know of), I take offense at that. We're just as capable, nay MORE capable, of breaking and entering if for no other reason than nobody considers us a threat at first glance, even if we're standing in your living room with a crowbar.

We only need that couple seconds of doubt, you see. Gingers, like marsupials, are fast.

See what I mean? The media are actively perpetuating stereotypes while covering up the truth about the Ginger Menace.

Scott, Do you know this song? Might make a good road song for your household.

Scott M said...

Yes, I do, you hateful melanist.

Liberals are such killjoys. Every day my morning routine is: Slip out of feetie pajamas (I'm an adult baby, you see); slip into muumuu; unplug the electric scooter and make my way down the trailer court to the clubhouse; park in front of the computer and load up drudgereport.com; crack open a Pabst Blue Ribbon; hoot and holler while reading stories of minorities behaving badly.

This is all I have to look forward to each morning, and now Salon.com wants to take that away.

Scott M said...

Liberals are such killjoys.

Yes, sending in government officials in the middle of the night to ascertain if a man is sleeping there, and thereby depriving the woman and her kids' of government assistance, certainly killed a lot of joy.

Coketown said...

Besides, whites behaving badly isn't 1/10th so interesting as blacks behaving badly. Insider trading and dealing dime-bags on campus? Really? What a bore!

Here's a poll. Tell me which you would LEAST prefer to read about:

1. Morty Goldfein indicted on six counts of insider trading.

2. Two black women arrested for BEATING A TRANNY INSIDE A MCDONALDS!!!

3. A group of blacks going completely ape at a Burger King in Florida--all caught on video--in which one woman jumps onto the counter and begins swinging the charity jug full of coins and then pelting the staff with fountain drinks.

Rachel said...

if you were black (like me) and talk to any black person without whites around, you would hear the same concerns, trust. No this is so NOT a race war but the continued problems of black urban conditions. And we know it, we're embarrassed by it. Esp when our supposed leaders do nothing but rely on our votes then run away from us.

And only blacks cans fix it, like only poor whites can fix their neighborhoods.

Rachel said...

So I don't get it. Did Drudge make these stories up or is he just a bad person for pointing them out?

just pointing them out

John Lynch said...

OK, so the next time there's a mass shooting can we just leave it to local news? Not use it as an excuse for gun control? Acknowledge that individual criminals don't represent all gun owners?

No?

Like Rachel just said, Drudge doesn't make the stories. He's responsible for what he does choose to report.

But so what?

I'm always amazed at the hypocrisy of liberals who suddenly discover that media can be misused for political ends. Shocked, shocked, that narratives are created. Horrified that facts are taken out of context. What major conservative figure HASN'T been quoted out of context and hasn't had a hostile narrative created about them?

What Drudge, Breitbart and Fox have done is simply use the same playbook other news organizations have been using for years. They just use it for conservative ends.

Liberals can see this just fine, but can't seem to get why this happened. It's a mystery!

Ron said...

I thought it was just me, but I've been noticing it since Obama took office.

Ron said...

I've notice the attention to racial news covered by Drudge since Obama took office. Rachel Maddow also mentioned it a couple of months ago, called "scaring White people." Too bad white people are falling for it.

Lyle said...

Good for Drudge. When the degenerate culture of the do nothing black man is destroyed... that'll be a good thing, especially because there will be fewer black men in prison.

Hollar!
