Hate Crime Hypocrisy


Pages: 1 2

Two recent strings of racial attacks—one black on white in Des Moines Iowa, the other black on Hispanic in Staten Island, New York—elicited very different reactions from both law enforcement and the mainstream media.

Since April, Staten Island law enforcement filed 11 “bias related” crimes committed against Mexicans, 10 of which were perpetrated by blacks.  The Los Angeles Times gave an example on August 18 where, “a Mexican teen-ager was robbed by a young black man armed with a knife who used racial slurs.”

The real culprit to the liberals in New York are not the thugs who committed the crime, but conservative opponents of illegal immigration.  The Times continues,

Jacob Massaquoi, a leader in Staten Island’s African immigrant community, said tensions had grown along with anti-immigrant sentiment in the United States, something they blame on Arizona’s crackdown on undocumented residents and conservative commentators such as Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck. “Their rhetoric is very personal, very inflammatory,” Massaquoi said.

Massaquoi is just echoing Barack Obama who said in 2008 that “A certain segment has basically been feeding a kind of xenophobia. There’s a reason why hate crimes against Hispanic people doubled last year.   If you have people like Lou Dobbs and Rush Limbaugh ginning things up, it’s not surprising that would happen.”  Obama’s numbers, by the way, are fabricated.  In fact, the rate of hate crimes against Hispanics went down between 2007 and 2008.

Numbers aside, Obama and the LA Times cannot honestly believe that African Americans who are told by many of their leaders that Rush Limbaugh and Glen Beck hate blacks are influenced by these shows.

When most people think of hate crimes, they think of a Klansman or a skinhead beating up a minority. Yet in Los Angeles County, 78% of Hispanic on black and 52% of black on Hispanic hate crimes are considered “gang related.”

I doubt that the Crips are tuned in to Rush Limbagh on their car radio while they commit a drive-by shooting against MS-13.

What about the Hispanic-on-white and Hispanic-on-black hate crimes?  The federal government does not report them!  While the FBI’s hate crime reporting sheet includes Hispancs as a victim group, they do not include Hispanics as offenders, and categorize virtually all of them as white.

In Los Angeles, where local police count Latinos as perpetrators, Latinos make up 69% of all anti-black hate crimes.  Latinos, meanwhile, are counted as white on black hate crimes by the FBI.

Thus, if the MS-13 retaliated against the Crips and yelled a racial slur in the process, this would be reported as a white-on-black hate crime.

Sure enough, the same people who blame attacks by blacks against Hispanics on opposition to illegal immigration are blaming the supposed rash of “hate crimes” against blacks on criticism of Obama.

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, a “watchdog” group that paints mainstream conservatives and the Ku Klux Klan with the same “hate group” brush,  anti-black hate crimes are “the result of a racist backlash to the election of America’s first African-American president.”

    The 'post racial' administration and some local governments are defending, aiding and perpetuating racism, bigotry, and race-based violence by "protected groups." Why am I not surprised?

    • ENOUGH

      And Latinos are counted as white????????????? What???????????? LA, NY, DC, Chicago, all skew the racism BS againts white people on purpose. WHO'S THE RACISTS?

  • rkeefe57

    The ironic (read: "hypocritical") thing about the Southern Poverty Law Center is that NOT ONE of its top ten, highest paid executives is a minority.

    http://wp.me/pCLYZ-67

    In fact, according to the SPLC's hometown <span class="IL_AD" id="IL_AD3">newspaper</span>, the Montgomery Advertiser, despite being located LITERALLY in the back yard of Dr. Martin Luther King's home church, the SPLC has NEVER hired a person of color to a highly paid position of <span class="IL_AD" id="IL_AD8">power</span>.

    Some "experts"

    • Newman

      The reason they don't pay well is because they are greedy Jews ! The Jews that own the SPLC are getting rich on race problems – If the Losers were so into justice why don't they look into the way Israel treats those poor poor people in the GAZA ? As being Jewish myself I find them hypocritical and nothing but money hungry creatures getting rich off hate !

  • Chezwick_Mac

    If Limbaugh and Beck are such racists with no minority following as the MSM claims, how is it they are influencing blacks to attack Hispanics?

  • blotto

    The only question remains as to when white Americans will fight back? I am sick of "protected class" or "minorities encouraged to apply." There will be white backlash at some point.

    The Dems/white progressives and blacks have permanently divided the nation. Ironically John Edwards was right, there are two Americas: black/white progressive/mexican peoples living here and white Americans.

  • stephencuz

    Remember that statue with a blindfold on? What ever happened to her? If there isn't any longer equal protection under the law how long before vigilantism takes to the streets? This is not a good thing. This lends itself to the creation of a crisis and a continued suspicion of "The Other" by everyone thus making all of us vulnerable to those that would take advantage of us. "Never let a crisis go to waste" kind of folks who would like nothing better than for us all to be divided and present an opportunity for "them" to come to the rescue. How? Why by imposing more laws, regulations, etc. on every aspect of our lives. Sounds like Sharia doesn't it? Maybe that is the affinity the Left has for Islam without even knowing it.

  • T_Trent

    Great critique of the "uses" of hate crime laws. The ethical problems with these laws, particularly enforcement biases and the role of the media in promoting these biases, are literally destroying the standard of equality before the law — a standard that ostensibly . . . otherwise . . . drives the last century of civil rights. In addition to such gross misrepresentations by the media, a particular problem is the way certain activist DAs reinforce their partisan deployment of hate crime law in collusion with criminologists who have invented an utterly unchallenged "science" of hate crime from within academia. What is happening in Manhattan and on Long Island is particularly troubling, as activists and politicians gain more control in the DA's office and are actively seeking ways to blame conservatives for so-called anti-immigrant crimes — nearly all committed by other minorities and none by "conservatives," which is not, as Goode observes, the way it is reported in the Times. This is the first time, literally, that I've seen an elected (former elected) official speak out on the "hispanic victim but not hispanic offender" record-keeping by the Department of Justice and all states, as per the HCSA. Why this particular outrage is ignored by most conservatives and Republicans is a mystery to me — except that it's very easy to prefer cover from the consequences of speaking out against these laws. Good for Goode for not taking the easy way out, like too many others.

    Hispanics and Americans of African descent can't be racist. They are a minority with no power thus can't intimidate the power class of the whites. Isn't that what our children in college are being taught? In this enlightened discourse you should have know that.

    Seriously, white people will eventually have to form a protection group similiar to the NAACP or roll over and die out.

    • Dennis X

      You already have your groups, the senate , congress, the republican party, the tea baggers and the kkk. You need to discern between hate and racism. Black people hate you for what you have done and continue to do to us. However , we don't always feel superior to anyone, except from a moral position.

      • ajnn

        "Black people hate you for what you have done and continue to do to us. "

        The Left speaks.

        I haven't done anything to you. But I can tell you that I will defend myself, if attacked. Note: I carry my weapon legally.

  • Wesley69

    I was once told by my students, who were African-American, that they could never be racists. They, instead, were the victims of it. Where did they get that idea? It sure as hell did not come from me. Democrats, including our "beloved" President, have been exploiting these feelings for the purpose of social justice????????? No, my students, for power!!!! The reason why justice is unequal is to make up for the injustices of the past. “Whitey” must pay for the crimes of his ancestors. What is this business of redistribution of the wealth all about????? That rhetoric translates into votes – political power for the Left. As my students said, we are voting for Obama because he is Black. What about his policies???? Makes no difference. As one lady said, with Obama as president, will pay my mortgage; fill my gas tank. Where is the thought behind the vote????

    "Massaquoi is just echoing Barack Obama who said in 2008 that “A certain segment has basically been feeding a kind of xenophobia."

    Echoing implies saying the same thing… If I say "it's nice outside" and you say "it's a lovely day"…you wouldn't be echoing me.

    Obama’s numbers, by the way, are fabricated. In fact, the rate of hate crimes against Hispanics went down between 2007 and 2008.

    What numbers? Yes the number of hate crimes went down…that's because, amoung other things, THE NUMBER OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS IS DOWN and has been dropping for years.

    This is just bad writing, terrible sourcing, and dumb conclusions…oh poor whitey you got it so bad!

    • bdouglasaf1980

      Bubba0, HA HA HA HA. Oh wait. You were serious.

      • bubba4

        What's funny…the fact that illegal immigration is down or that FPM is poorly written?

    • ajnn

      "Echoing implies saying the same thing… If I say "it's nice outside" and you say "it's a lovely day"…you wouldn't be echoing me. "

      Huh? How is a rephrasing of the same idea not an echo ?

  • bdouglasaf1980

    I grew up in a small town in north Alabama. Even though we outnumbered the black kids by about 60-40 I along with my white classmates regularly received beatings or had our lunch money stolen. The sad part is they used a gang mentality to intimidate us and the whites ran like sheep. Some of us would rather take a beating than give up the money. Not until late highschool did this type behavior stop. Maybe it stopped because many realized they would have to go to work, and many of our parents were supervisors at the local companies or owned the businesses.

    Yes it happened in a small southern town of all places.

    • Dennis X

      I had a very good friend from a small town in alabama, whose uncle went out one nite and was later mailed back to the family. And yes it happened in a small southern town of all places.

  • Atlas_Collins

    I've always been ahead of the curve. It's never bothered me at all that Liberal scum and ni66ers call me racist.

    • Dennis X

      You'd be right at home on strom front. Van jones is still right.

      • Atlas_Collins

        What's strom front? And what does the racist commie booge Van Jones have to do with any of this?

        • Dennis X

          Strom front is a racist web site for skinheads , kkk and bigots like you. Van Jones called people like a–holes and he's still right!!

          • Atlas_Collins

            Oh, I get it. I'm supposed to feel bad and keep quiet because you're smearing me with the kkk brush. I see.

            Say, did anyone ever point out to you that you write rather well for a ghetto splib? You must have gone to one of those urban charter schools, huh?

          • Dennis X

            Its nice to know that your comfortable in your bigotry, being an a–hole and still liking yourself is a good thing. No, never lived in a gettho like you, got a good education and job and really don't care about you keeping quite, I'm just enjoying the death of white supremacy and hearing you cry like the little girl you are. No offense to little girls.

          • governmentisslavery

            Wow! You are too stupid to realize that ever since the Civil War, blacks in America, have b een enslaved by the federal government. Yes that same liberal government that convinces you blacks to kill 700,000 of your babies every year in America. That same liberal government that enslaves millions of black americans in welfare poverty offering bull$hit training that never leads to any employable skills. That same government that tells you blacks that you are not as good as whites so they have to "help" you.

            Free your fellow black americans from slavery for one and all. Join the nearest Tea party and express your desire for freedom from government induced slavery and government induced generational poverty.

            And tell your liberal leaders to stop importing Mexican gang members to kill your black teenagers.

            The liberal Democratic "final solution" is a race war where blacks and Mexicans kill each other off and decrease the US population of hispanics and blacks.

  • ArchonPrime

    Whites that live in Black majority Urban areas have seen "GET WHITEY DAYS" on a regular basis for the last 40-years. The BLACK ON WHITE HATECRIMES simply don't make the newspaper.

  • Samurai Hit Woman

    That's true they don't make the papers and "whitey" is most often the victim of hate crimes.

    I'm tired of blacks with a chip on their shoulders, they wear me out, but fortunately all blacks aren't forever complaining about the past, which is just that, the past.

  • Guest

    I grew up in L.A. long before Obama, Rush or the term "hate crime" were born. There were "territories" ethnic gangs, "pachuko's", and fights were commonplace but never made the news or penetrated the bleeding heart lefty world of feel-goodery or the "social justice" (i.e.; Marxist) crowd. "Hate crimes" is just another bit of Politically Correct BS concocted by the Gramscian Left to subvert the Constitution in favor of totalitarian expediency.

    • trickyblain

      Bleeding heart lefty! social justice! Marxist! Fell-goodery! Politically correct! Gramscian! Subvert the Constitution! And last but not least – totalitarian expediency! You, sir, win the prize for today's "Fit the Most Poli-buzzwords Into One Paragraph" contest.

      One problem with today's Beck/Palin/Coulter followers is that they are far too stupid to realize that they are stupid.

      • hijinx60

        Hey Tricky,….can you prove your last statement? I suppose you will have to run to the Huffington post or Daily Kos for your "facts". I doubt that you have ever truly listened to Beck or Palin and heard what they say….not just the sound but the words and what they mean. To hear and not listen is stupid.

      • Stephen_Brady

        "One problem with today's Beck/Palin/Coulter followers is that they are far too stupid to realize that they are stupid."

        I suppose that you have definitive proof of the above assertion?

      • Guest

        So Tricky, how does it feel now that you're no longer too stupid to realize that you're stupid?

  • hijinx60

    The whole "hate crimes" thing is stupidity exemplified. Have you ever heard of a "love crime?" I try to respect all people as long as they respect me. We in the south, call the Civil war by its true name The war of Northern Agression (today it would be called a hate war) because the reason for the war was a battle over states rights. Most today think that it was fought over slavery NOT TRUE. The Constitution of the Confederate States banned slavery. Today as then, the Federal Government was usupring the authority of the states and the states resisted by peaceful succession. It was the Fed that fired on Ft. Sumpter. If there was any hate, it was in the North. They committed a hate crime that led to the War of Northern Agression. That is why I say the term "hate crime" is a joke!!

    This is what Malcolm X had to say about this. – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=znQe9nUKzvQ

  • PapaSmurf

    Obama is the most racially biased President that has ever rented the White House He is about as hypocritical as any person in the known universe. His supporters simply follow his rabid race baiting strategy. When people start quoting 'Malcolm X' as if he is some kind of National hero, we are indeed in deep trouble. This Nation has become a bunch of silly, racial hypocrites. Let a Caucasian President spew one of two of the comments that Obama has put out there and the impeachment proceedings would be in full swing. Those that demand racial equity better start following their own demands instead of talking out of both sides of their mouths.

    black.white brown yellow or green we are all dupes manipulated and taken to the cleaners by the Zionist bankster fraternity….goldman sachs….greenspan, bernanke the Rothschilds all from the same tribe….their Motto..by way of deception shall you make war says it all. divide an conquer is their other operative style. Until the various and ethnic Americans wake up to that fact and unite ..they will love and laugh at the bickering between us ,while impoverishing us at the same time

  • Todd

    You people who are racist are suckers. Think about it. Your minds are too distracted by hate of a certain skin color to realize that those who really pull the strings want you distracted so that you vote against your own best interests and never truly escape poverty. Power and money is their ultimate goal.

    When yall whites decide to "fight back" make sure you fight the ones who make policy and not those who simply want to shelter and feed their families. Remember that the rich divide the poor and make them fight each other so they never recognize the manipulators and fight them.

    Just like for decades whites recognized that they received preferential treatment over "blacks" and never stood collectively and undermined the well-being of themselves and their families by protesting it, dont get mad now that some people are now benefitting from the policies made by people they have no connection to or power over.

    Policy is made by the rich to achieve their ends. They dont care about one race over the other. They care about their position remaining stable.

    One has to realize where Hate Crime legislation originated. Try the Anti-defamation League's web site. The ADL maintains a staff of thrity or more attorneys whose sole function is to draft legislation of a disruptive nature and attempt to inveigle it into Municiple and state legislatures. This is where Hate Crime legislature originated when it was "Offered" to state legislatures whose staffs were too lazy and self-indulgent to construct their own legislation,

  • Phil Glidden

    Often times state legislators took the ADL version whole cloth without any appreciable alteration, and this is how the Jewish parasites nibbled away even further the defenses of their Angle-White HOST. Remember, a parasite cannot erxist without a host, and the very best parasite is the one which can hide its activites from the HOST. Also, the so-called Holocauist Laws were helped along by the ADL and other Jewish organizations and taken into the public schools in most cases, without any revision. Them Florida Holocaust Law was given the ingredients of the law by the Holocaust Memorial foundation in Washington and introduced into the Florida legislature without any revision at all. Thus the children of America have had parasitic revisionism pumped into their skulls for over twenty years, and such propaganda helped elect Obama.

  • Phil Glidden

    What is of interest in that the Talmud, the sacred book of Judiasm, and the LAW OF ISRAEL, commands Jews to "hate the enemies of Israel" but that , of course, Jews being the "Chosen People of God" cannot be punished for hating others- only if others hate Jews. As Shakespeare wrote "Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we consider to deceive." This is why the Moassad, the Israeli secret service, has as its motto" BY WAY OF DECEPTION". The heads of state in France and Italy are both Jews, one of whom is a billionaire and owns most of the radio and TV outlets, and who would believe, he made most of his money in PORN, especially, child and "
    Snuff" porn. This is why GOD loves Jews and considers them to be "Special".

    JESUS WAS NOT A Jew

    Benjamin H. Freedman, Jewish Historian – Researcher – Scholar.
    From "Common Sense", p. 2-1-53 and 5-1-59
    "Christians have been duped by the unholiest hoax in all history, by so-called Jews. This is considered their most effective weapon."
    "This 'big lie' technique is brainwashing United States Christians into believing that Jesus Christ was "King of the Jews", in the sense that so-called 'Jews' today call themselves 'Jews'. This reference was first made in English translations of the Old and New Testaments, centuries before the so-called Jews highjacked the word 'Jew' in the 18th century A.D. to palm themselves off on the Christian world as having a kinship with Jesus Christ. This alleged kinship comes from the myth of their common ancestry with the so-called 'Jews' of the Holy Land in the Old Testament history, a fiction based on fable."
    "American Christians little suspect they are being brainwashed twenty-four hours of every day over television and radio, by newspapers and magazines, by motion pictures and plays, by books, by political leaders in office and seeking office, by religious leaders in their pulpits and outside their churches, by leaders in the field of education inside and outside their curricular activities, and by all leaders in business, professions and finance, whose economic security demands that they curry the favor of so-called "Jews" of historic Khazar ancestry. Unsuspecting Christians are subjected to this barrage from sources they have little reason to suspect. Incontestable facts supply the unchallengeable proof of the historic accuracy that so-called "Jews" throughout the world today of eastern European origin are unquestionably the historic descendants of the Khazars, a pagan Turko-Finn ancient Mongoloid nation deep in the heart of Asia, according to history, who battled their way in bloody wars about the 1st century B.C. into eastern Europe where they set up their Khazar kingdom. For some mysterious reason the history of the Khazar kingdom is conspicuous by its absence from history courses in the schools and colleges.
    "The historic existence of the Khazar kingdom of so-called "Jews", their rise and fall, the permanent disappearance of the Khazar kingdom as a nation from the map of Europe, and how King Bulan and the Khazar nation in about 740 A.D. became so-called "Jews" by conversion, were concealed from American Christians by censorship imposed by so-called "Jews", of historic Khazar ancestry, upon all U.S.A. media of mass communications directed by them. Then in 1945 this author gave nation-wide publicity to his many years intensive research into the "facts of life" concerning Khazars. The disclosures were sensational and very effective but apparently angered so-called "Jews" who have continued to vent their spleen upon this author since then solely for that reason. Since 1946 they have conducted a vicious smear campaign against him, seeking thus to further conceal these facts, for obvious reasons. What have they to fear from the truth?
    "In an original 1903 edition of the Jewish Encyclopedia in New York's Public Library, and in the Library of Congress, Volume IV, pages 1 to 5 inclusive, appears a most comprehensive history of the Khazars. Also in the New York Public Library are 327 books by the world's greatest historians and other sources of reference, in addition to the Jewish Encyclopedia, dealing with Khazar history, and written between the 3rd A.D. and 20th centuries by contemporaries of the Khazars and by modern historians on that subject.

    My family moved from Virginia to Oakland, (CA) in the 50's….I lost my drawl real fast and I still remember to this day a little black girl would walk with me and my sister to make sure no one would beat us up…..and we were only in K and 1st grade at the time.

    The FBI is good at massaging the numbers to achieve a desired result. Just look at their report on terrorism in the U.S. 1980-2005. It lists 318 terrorist incidents, and says only 6% of them were committed by Islamics. That's true in a way, but it's only a small part of the truth. For one thing, the largest component of the incidents — 90 — occurred in Puerto Rico, concerning local issues. The next largest terror group were the ecological ones; notably vandalism and arson of sawmills and logging operations, and attacks on mink farms, with the release of hundreds of mink. I don't think there were any fatalities in any of the eco-attacks. On the other hand, all of the attacks on 9-11 count as only one incident. Yes, a raid on a mink farm is one "incident", and 9-11 was one "incident" The real truth comes out when one looks at the fatalities: only 6% were NOT committed by Islamics, 94% WERE.
    So: 318 incidents (actually 228 in the 50 states), 19 by Islamics
    and: 3173 fatalities, 2983 by Islamics
    Like they say: "figures can't lie, but liars can figure".
