Ferguson and the Real Race War


jk33Since the shooting of Michael Brown by a white policeman and the ensuing riots and looting in Ferguson, MO, Americans have been told, yet again, that there is an epidemic of crime against black people in this country. But is there really a race war, and if so, which side is actually waging it? See Bill Whittle’s video and transcript below:

TRANSCRIPT:

RACE RIOTS IN FURGUSON

Hi everybody. I’m Bill Whittle and this is the Firewall.

Before we get into the bigger picture – of which the ongoing rioting in Furguson, Missouri is merely a symptom – let’s just be crystal clear about something.

IF it turns out that a police officer shot Michael Brown as he was standing still, his hands in the air, as his defenders claim, then that police officer needs to be charged with murder, and he needs to go to jail for the rest of his life.

But that doesn’t seem like what happened at all. This story is still unfolding and  new details are being revealed every day. I’m not going to speculate on how Michael Brown’s life actually came to an end. But I am going to talk about what happened before and after.

Michael Brown has been repeatedly referred to in the media as a “gentle giant,” and an “unarmed black teen.”

Here’s surveillance video of the gentle giant, taken a short time before the shooting, stealing a handful of cigars and then gently strong arming the store owner out of his way.

So why is it that the Attorney General, appointed by the President of the United States of America, put intense political pressure on the Ferguson Police Department to suppress this standard, ordinary surveillance video – a video, by the way, that caused the destruction of this man’s store and left him fearing for his life. Well, we’ll get to that in a moment.

Defenders of Michael Brown say that this is an attempt to criminalize him and therefore deflect attention from the police shooting. Really? That kind of casual violence, that sense of entitlement, that utter disrespect for the law or another human being – don’t take my word for it; the evidence is right there in front of your eyes – that attitude has nothing to do with the police claim that he was charging the officer when he was shot? This doesn’t shed some doubt on the story of a gentle, innocent, “unarmed black teen” assassinated by the police while his hands were in the air for the crime of being black?

Let’s cut to the chase here. Spokesmen for the protestors rioting in Ferguson and St. Louis – and, in fact, a large percentage of the general population — claim that there is an epidemic of white on black crime, of white cops shooting unarmed black teens. Is that, in fact, happening?

According to the FBI, there were 408,217 robberies in 2009. That’s about 1100 a day, or in round numbers, about once a minute, 24 hours a day. That means a thousand times a day the police are called, a thousand times a day arrests are made and in general terms the events leading up to the shots being fired in Ferguson Missouri happen about one thousand times PER DAY.

So if there’s this epidemic of white policemen executing innocent black males, why do we only hear about a case like this every few years? And why do most of those cases – like this one – seem to end up with extenuating circumstances? And why do the few cases that don’t have extenuating circumstances end up with the offending officers in jail? If this is an epidemic – where’s the epidemic? 30,000 commercial flights land safely each day in America. They don’t make the news either.

So. Is there an epidemic of racial violence loose in America today?

There is.

According to the National Crime Victimization Survey, in 2010, 62,593 blacks were the victims of white violence. During that same year, 320,082 whites were the victims of black violence. That’s five times as many violent attacks, but that number is misleading, since the black and white populations are not the same size. When 38 million black Americans commit five times as many violent crimes on 197 million whites as they receive, what you discover is that black perpetrators violently assault White victims TWENTY-FIVE times more frequently. When it comes to a specific kind of violent crime — aggravated assault — the number of black on white crimes is TWO HUNDRED TIMES HIGHER than white on black crimes. Oh, there’s an epidemic of racial violence in America, all right.

Reporter and author Colin Flaherty has taken a cold, clear-eyed view of the statistics that don’t make the news because they are suppressed by the news. He reports, for example — again in 2010 — the National Crime Victimization Survey reported approximately 13,000 black-on-white rapes and 39,000 black-on-white robberies – both violent crimes. The statistics show that the number of white on black rapes and violent robberies were so small that they had to be rounded to the nearest whole number, and that whole number was ZERO.

Critics will say that I am using these statistics to justify the murder of Michael Brown. But I said at the beginning – if Michael Brown were shot in cold blood then the police officer needs to pay the price for murder. This has nothing to do with Michael Brown. This has EVERYTHING to do with the narrative that the President, the Attorney General, and all of these race hustlers are trying to create using Michael Brown.

There is, in fact, a racial war of violence and hatred in America. Open racism is simply not tolerated in white America today, but black racism is the toxic glue that holds the progressive coalition together. Tolerance of – in fact, as we see from the events in Ferguson, open encouragement of black rage at a narrative that not only does not exist but reverses the daily outrages that do exist, is what defines modern progressivism. It is the politics of envy, anger, entitlement, lawlessness, violence and bald-faced lies.

And of all the promises broken by this man, surely none is more heartbreaking than the one promise that got him elected in the first place: the promise of a post-racial future. He and his racist progressive cohorts can never surrender the weapon that has gotten them everything, not the least of which is personal political power and trillions of dollars of redistributed wealth. And this latest outrage in Furguson is yet another example – as if another was needed among the economic wreckage, creeping totalitarianism, and foreign-policy disasters — that he and his leftist cohorts would rather rule over ruins than disappear into the dustbin of a healthy and healed nation.

  • Brian Wolfe

    Let me get this straight, The owner of the store probably feared for his life because a unarmed black man grabbed some cigars and ran. Oh Nevermind, all young black men are all armed criminals and need to be shot six times and questions aske later. Now I understand.

    • Sheik Yerbouti

      If you saw the video, it was not that simple. His encounter with the store clerk was not “running away” at all. He attacked the man. He was a thief and a violent thug. It’s amazing he caught his end so quickly instead of bogging down the criminal justice system for several decades. Cold? Sure it is.

      • NoDakNative

        It’s amazing how people can pretend that the robbery video doesn’t exist. We’re not citing some obscure 4th century Greek manuscript in a museum in Latvia. We’re citing a video that you have to go out of your way to avoid when reading about this topic.

        Also, there is no such thing as an “unarmed man”. My brothers fellow band member got beaten into a 3-week coma by an “unarmed man” in South Dakota.

        • TEEBONICUS

          Exactly right. Brown was unarmed with an implement, but he was armed with a huge, strong physical stature and a violent attitude.

    • johnlac

      Let me get this straight. Brian Wolfe is a clerk in a convenience store, and he notices a person stealing some merchandise. Mr. Wolfe goes up to the person, who is a foot taller and more than one hundred pounds heavier, and demands he pay for the merchandise. The thief grabs Mr. Wolfe by his shirt and shakes him like a rag doll. Then the thief saunters out of the store with the visibly shaken Mr. Wolfe probably glad the thief didn’t snap his neck.
      It seems liberals like you have a fantastic ability to see ignore reality and twist events to fit your preconceived notions. But you knew Brown was automatically innocent and the white cop a coldblooded killer, right? That’s just the way things had to be.
      Guess what Brian, while Brown was getting himself killed for his thuggish actions, about twenty other black males were being killed by other black males.Because that’s about how many black males are killed every day by other black males.

    • Dallas25305

      I think he should have shot seven times you leftist loser.

    • TEEBONICUS

      Lefties are trying to downplay this by calling it “shoplifting”. Shoplifting by definition is concealing merchandise on or about the person and walking past the register without paying. It is a furtive act.

      He didn’t just grab some cigars and run. He physically assaulted the clerk.
      Larceny and simple assault are both misdemeanors, but when you combine them, the act becomes a felony.

      And he wasn’t shot for that act. He was shot while attacking a police officer who was a midget by comparison, AFTER shattering his orbital bones and trying to grab his gun.

      “Nothing wrong with shooting as long as the right people get shot.” – Harry Callahan

    • Michael Garfinkel

      Brian, join the protest in Ferguson!
      You’ve already got the prerequisite qualities of ignorance and insolence.

      The owner of the store in question fears for his life because it was reported that he was the person who called the police about the robbery.

      It’s clear that you understand nothing – and that you’re content with that.

  • Glad2BeFree

    I wonder if the 13,000 black-on-white rape incidents were “Rape-rapes”?, a concept Whoopi Goldberg conceived.

  • Der Kriegsbringer

    Whoopi was conceived by rape-rape? Who knew? :D

  • slhancock

    Our thug-in-chief president really wants all out race war from this, and he is doing all he can to promote it. This is a spiritual war that America is in, and the stakes could not be higher. We have descended into the “pit”. Immorality and lawlessness at the highest rates ever, exactly as Scripture says will happen when a nation turns its back on God. We’ve made government a god, but it is no god. It is a slave-master, and this president intends to let s find out exactly just what he means by slaves. I’ve been praying that God would remove this complete administration BEFORE the end of this year, showing America exactly what they are being saved from. I realize that God is under no obligation to save America, but I pray that others join me in this. I prayed specifically for two others to be removed from office and any influence…and God removed them. This is not some flamboyant boast. We must pray for any change to take place. No politician is going to “save” us. If God doesn’t intervene, we are toast.

  • Tippy Larkin

    One has to be brain dead, or a racist black to not know the simple facts BLACKS and Islam ARE THE PROBLEMs. Take out Mohammad’s Lie and IDIOTology of Islam an blacks off the planet, how Utopian would the world be?

    • Pippilotta

      you ´murricans are hilarious – racist,pathetic,conservative morons.(wit´ guns, ma´am)

  • allegre.raul

    It’s important to note that we all know this person was unarmed after the fact, but a policeman wouldn’t know that for sure until he had the person assume the position so he could frisk him. Once an officer sees a gun, the situation instantly becomes very serious, but the time when an officer does not know whether or not a person has a gun is also a tense time. How many times have we heard how dangerous it is for an officer to approach a car after pulling it over because he has no idea what he’s about to encounter. So he hast to be prepared for the worst just to be safe.

    • TEEBONICUS

      He was unarmed with an implement. He WAS armed with a huge, strong physical stature and an attitude.

  • Wilkins Micawber

    Bring on the race war! Obviously these feral black vermin have no concept that food doesn’t come from the supermarket, it comes from farms, mainly owned by whites, delivered in trucks mainly owned and driven by whites. The same holds true for their cigars and malt liquor. So bring it on you scum, you won’t last six weeks and perhaps the outcome will be that this country will, at long last, be finally and blessedly rid of you.

    • TEEBONICUS

      Now’s not the time. Have you forgotten who’s holding the federal gun?

  • 95Theses
  • Dallas25305

    You don’t need any video. Anyone with a brain in their head knows this is the truth. Try driving around down town Detroit some night and find out doofus.

  • OK

    Just a thought – what would Sharpton, Jackson, Holder & O’ et.al… do if James Foley was a black ‘gentle giant’ from Ferguson???

  • William

    Makes you wonder what today’s government and media would do to Reverend MLK Jr, if he were alive and a civil rights activist today. I guess they’d want him in Gitmo as a ‘racial terrorist’.

    • Michael Garfinkel

      Again, we have snide adolescence on display in Wiliam’s comment, without even the pretense of argument or reason.

      I suppose sanctimonious grandiosity is inescapable in this type.

      William – join the Ferguson march!

    • Charley

      They would call him a Teabilly Racist

  • Bob The builder

    Hispanics are not included in the FBI stats. Have you ever seen a stat with crimes committed by Mexicans? Check it out. it changes the actual stats about whites a lot. In New York crimes by whites is almost zero if you take out the Hispanic people mixed in.

  • krinks

    Tell the whole truth that cuts through this racist tinged fog. Blacks are twice as likely to grow up in a home without a father present than a white. Growing up in a home without a father present is the most common characteristic of someone in poverty or prison. If the women stopped treating their bodies as amusement park rides problem solved. It isn’t a color issue so much as a moral issue.

    The “White” system loves you “Negros” and wants you to be born and live! Read fine print!

    One of our (Israel/Jews So called “African/Black…-Americans” are from the Judah tribe of Israel and we are not ***African, Africans are from Ham***) Holocaust began with the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger (Edomite/Esau/”whites”). Margaret Sanger goal, according to her, was a cleaner race. She targeted people with what they labeled as “bad genes” and black Americans (Israel/Jews So called “African/Black…-Americans” are from the Judah tribe of Israel and we are not ***African, Africans are from Ham***). She used black ministers (coons) to sell the idea of birth control. Margaret Sanger statement, “We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro (Israel/Jews So called “African/Black…-Americans” are from the Judah tribe of Israel and we are not ***African, Africans are from Ham***) population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members,” wrote Sanger. Abortions were not part of Sanger’s plan. She sought to exterminate those she and her members (Bill Gates’ father, William H. Gates Sr served on the board of Planned Parenthood) believed as undesirable through birth control; or forced sterilization if necessary. Besides Margaret Sanger Edomite views on “Blacks” her opinion other people were, “people in developing countries shouldn’t have any babies”.

    Alveda King, niece of Martin Luther King, Jr., wrote last week that it was “Juneteenth;” an annual celebration of the day slavery was abolished in Texas in 1865. King noted that, even after all this time, “we have yet to connect the dots between the denial of African-Americans’ (Israel/Jews So called “African/Black…-Americans” are from the Judah tribe of Israel and we are not ***African, Africans are from Ham***) human rights through slavery to the denial of unborn children’s human rights through abortion.” The number one killer of black babies today is ABORTION. The unborn black baby today is not free and it is Margaret Sanger’s dream that is coming true.

    Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in America. 78% of their clinics are in minority communities (SO CALLED BLACKS, MEXICAN’S, NATIVE INDIAN’S). Blacks make up 12% of the population, but 35% of the abortions in America. Are we being targeted? Isn’t that genocide? We are the only minority in America that is on the decline in population. If the current trend continues, our nation would be almost dead. Did you know that the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, was a devout racist who created the Negro Project designed to sterilize unknowing “black” women and others Margaret Sanger and her members deemed as undesirables of society? The founder of Planned Parenthood said, “Colored people are like human weeds and are to be exterminated.” Is Margaret Sanger vision of killing the so called “Blacks…” being fulfilled today?

    However, it is important for so-called “Blacks…” to remember that abortion kills “Black…” (Jew/Israelites) unborn babies at a startling rate. Since 1973, 13 million “BLACK” babies have been lost because of abortion, and according to the Center for Disease Control, out of the approximately 4,000 abortions that are performed daily in the United States, 1,452 of them are performed on “Black” women and their unborn children.

    Psalm 83:1-6, but read whole chapter.

    1 Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.
    2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.
    3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.
    4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.
    5 For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:
    6 The tabernacles of Edom(WHITE/CAUCASIAN), and the Ishmaelites; of Moab(Asians), and the Hagarenes;

    “White” (Edomites) people telling the truth! Within a certain understanding! This all goes back to the hate that Edomites(“whites”) have towards Israelites(“Blacks” and we are not Africans they are Ham’s seed). I’m not saying all Edomite’s do this and can’t control their hate to a certain degree, BUT MOST EDOMITE’S DO HATE!

    This is in the Bible KJV:
    Psalm 83:1-6, but read whole chapter.
    1 Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.
    2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.
    3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.
    4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.
    5 For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:
    6 The tabernacles of Edom(WHITE/CAUCASIAN), and the Ishmaelites; of Moab(Asians), and the Hagarenes;

    Moving on to the points:

    1. Rand Paul (Congressman)
    Sens. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz are weighing in on the violence in Ferguson, Missouri, staking out ground on a racially charged issue ahead of their possible 2016 presidential bids.

    In a highly personal Time op-ed, Paul (R-Ky.) bluntly connected race to the treatment of African-Americans (“Blacks” and we are not Africans they are Ham’s seed) who have gathered in Ferguson since police killed teenager Michael Brown. Paul said that when he was young, he might have “smarted off” but he “wouldn’t have expected to be shot.”

    “Given the racial disparities in our criminal justice system, it is impossible for African-Americans not to feel like their government is particularly targeting them,” Paul wrote. “This is part of the anguish we are seeing in the tragic events outside of St. Louis, Missouri. It is what the citizens of Ferguson feel when there is an unfortunate and heartbreaking shooting like the incident with Michael Brown.”

    The senator’s lengthy, provocative and personal op-ed went further than any other Republican in acknowledging pervasive racial divisions in the U.S.

    “Anyone who thinks that race does not still, even if inadvertently, skew the application of criminal justice in this country is just not paying close enough attention,” he wrote.

    3. James W. Loewen: (Lies My Teacher Told Me)
    Fragile White Ego Syndrome is a personality disorder common in North America. Patients base part of their self-worth on pride in being white – but it is a false pride that is easily threatened and therefore fragile. It is a desperate front, a house of cards, that must be defended at all costs.
    To maintain this fragile white ego patients will:
    -Play up white accomplishments (inventions, “civilization”, IQ scores, freeing the slaves, etc)
    -Play down, excuse or deny white evils (slavery, genocide, colonialism, racism, etc)
    They do the opposite when it comes to people of “color”:
    -Play up the faults of people of “color”, both real and imagined (poverty, crime, violence, out-of-wedlock births, pathologies)
    -Play down the successes of people of “color” (overlook everything they invented or, where possible, claim them as honorary whites)
    This causes a reality distortion field which makes whites seem better than they are and people of color seem worse than they are. In America this distortion field is known as “the mainstream culture”.
    In regard to people of color patients (“Whites”) will:
    -Lack empathy and seem incapable of putting themselves in their shoes.
    -Not take anything they say seriously.
    -Use racial slurs and jokes.
    -Try “not to see color” as if any color except white is a bad thing that must be overlooked.
    -See value in them only when they are useful to whites – otherwise they are “a drain on society”, can be killed by the police without consequence, can go to bad schools, etc. People of color have no true human worth in their eyes.
    In extreme cases they can become physically violent, like burning down Rosewood, Florida…

  • Rico Sauve

    Why isn’t there coverage like this when a white officer kills a hispanic? Just saying…

  • SomeoneWhoWantsTheBest

    You republican racist ignorant retired old rich bastards need to realize that this is the problem in America. You use a whole youtube video to show the public (By example) that high ranking or rich white people talk down to a race that has had to fight whites for centuries to simply get freedom. Now you expect blacks to appreciate you judging that based on skin pigmentation one is more likely to commit crime or be physically violent when majority of violent drunks and abusive husbands who are prosecuted are white. Wake the fuck up and stop hiding behind your paper assholes. Money means nothing, learn what really matters: individuality and to put your mind over your money. Power corrupts and so does ignorance.
