Because It Wasn't Already Contentious Enough ... WaPo Op-Ed Injects Race Into the Gun Debate

This "blame whitey" piece is unintentionally (I think) hilarious.

Imagine if African American men and boys were committing mass shootings month after month, year after year. Articles and interviews would flood the media, and we’d have political debates demanding that African Americans be “held accountable.” Then, if an atrocity such as the Newtown, Conn., shootings took place and African American male leaders held a news conference to offer solutions, their credibility would be questionable. The public would tell these leaders that they need to focus on problems in their own culture and communities.

But when the criminals and leaders are white men, race and gender become the elephant in the room.

That first paragraph is very nearly self-refuting. A couple of Newtowns worth of people, almost exclusively African American people, die on the streets of gun control-loving Chicago every month, yet the media flood the authors suggest would happen simply hasn't. I wonder why that is ... ?

But if they want to go there, then, by all means, let's go there.

Looks to me like (a) the black homicide rate dwarfs the white homicide rate and (b) the gap is greatest where gun control is most strict.

This should come as no surprise, since gun control first got a toehold in this country by being directed at minorities (Native Americans, freed slaves, immigrants).

In addition to being unconstitutional and impractical, gun control also has a disparate impact on minorities. Next time you hear some lefty going on about it, ask him why he's such a racist.

3 344 Those of us wanting to make cultural headway need to read the reddit politics thread, especially the comments.

Until we internalize that those are some of the key Obama supporters, we will make no progress. They are fully literate, received 12+ years of public education, were taught false things about economics, were taught to turn off all critical thinking skills, and are incapable of thinking logically.

It is those people that we must sway.

7 Nevergiveup. as opposed to Bush Katrina 24/7/365. But nothing like that for Sandy/Obama even though five months later people are still living in hotel rooms, no mention of FEMA trailers either.

18 Does the author see any conflict between the belief that killing is a
cultural problem and the belief that "a disproportionate number of black
men are in prison"? If these homicides are indeed a cultural problem,
wouldn't that suggest that the higher number of black men in prison is
appropriate if the black-on-black murder rate is higher?

Is cognitive dissonance an official part of the Progressive platform???

No Mitch McConnell going to those places, having a large press conference to show how bad it is, then requiring every single GOP Senator to issue their own press releases condemning Obamas lack of leadership.

I read and reread this thing, trying to figure out if this was one of those "gotcha" pieces where you agree with something and then find out they switched the villains or some key words to make you confront your hypocrisy. I now don't think that's what this is. I have concluded that they are simply so marinated in their own propaganda that they've lost the ability to understand how normal people read and respond to what they write. They are like blind, cave-dwelling animals who no longer sense visible light because they just don't need it in their specialized little environmental bubble.

62 Tony,

Lyndon Johnson's The Great Society. For starters.

Communists in the 1930 (during the depression) theorized that the black community in America was far more open to the influence of communism than other communities, and so the liberals in America designed and implemented programs intended to disrupt the black family, the black community, and black neighborhoods.

The end goal being to have an entire portion if the population dependent upon the government, so as to create a permanent class of voters as part of the transformation of America.

Thus, LBJs the great society program.

Instead of pushing black leaders like Sharpton an Jackson to look with in their own community for both the cause and the solution,they give them the spotlight to blame everyone else.

77 I think Holmes converting to Islam is interesting. Spencer writes about it at Jihad Watch. Speaking of reasons and justifications for violence with significant global impact. It's the jihad, stupid.

Mali was a comparatively decent place until the north was overrun by rebels and warring bands of jihadis. White jihadis in Kosovo and Albania can make those places dicey. Violence is not a skin color thing. See, Vikings.

Nobody in government or the NGO community seems very interested in the victims of jihad or non-Muslims being exterminated in the Arab Spring. Too busy scolding Israel for building construction.

"Those of us wanting to make cultural headway need to read the reddit politics thread, especially the comments."

The only "headway" you're likely to make in a reddit comment thread is repeatedly bashing your head against a concrete wall to no good effect.

If saving America means having to teach the average reddit commenter to reason rigorously, well, forget it, Jake.

And, frankly, we need to be realistic about the fact that America has now fallen into the the failed-state category, and there isn't going to be any magical turnaround in America's long decline into incoherence, ignorance, squalor and bankruptcy.

month after month, year after year. Articles and interviews would flood
the media, and we’d have political debates demanding that African
Americans be “held accountable.”

Sharpton and Jackson are part of the problem. They are enabling and leading this. When any black man or woman of prominence stands up and talks sincerely about the tragedy ofdeadly black-on-black violence in cities across the country, they get attacked, and Sharpton and Jackson will be leading the chorus.

In part, because there is big drug money behind this, and they are getting a cut of it. I would bet the ranch on it. Drug corruption permeates the Mexican government and politics. Do you really think it is any different here? Really?

90 I don't even know where to begin pointing out the how inane that sounds given the fact that it's VERY well known how much the media refuses to mention race when it's a black on _____ crime.

The lib media would trip over itself making sure nobody "jumped to conclusions" if it were a person of color. Then, when it's becomes "the elephant in the room" they pretend it doesn't exist.

Where is this person getting their facts from? White folks have been shamed by the media into a guilty state and therefore feel they should accept any criticism and even promote the guilt as "deserved".

Fuck that.

Whites walk around with targets in their back saying "thank you sir, my I have another.." when they are bashed, but if ANNNNYONE tries to point out the double standard...? Out comes the high horse firing squad to murder you.

It has been my experience that most businesses react with immediate and overwhelming and terrifying force when line level employees start mouthing off politically to customers. As in employees getting their walking papers that same day.

Doesn't matter what the politics are, left or right. It's the optics. Your typical business wants customers coming in the door, they spend good money to get those customers in the door, and they do NOT like anything that keeps those customers away.

They're a bit disengenous when they state "Immigrants with mental health issues are not committing mass shootings" - that's because this group prefer bombs, cars, and planes, such as:
*Shoe bomber Richard Reid
*Underwear bomber
*The planned bombing of the Christmas tree lighting in Oregon in 2011
*The Times Square bomber 2012
*The dude who drove his SUV into a bunch of NC college students

161 Liberal utopia realized will always be similar to what occurred in the USSR. That's also the direction the US is heading. The liberals will win in the US in the long run as well because most conservatives think the big issues are gun control, or the economy, or gay marriage, etc. The real issue is whether we as a nation honor God (before all else.)

There is nothing new under the sun. Just read the old testament. In fact, the problem is not liberals/ progressives at all; the problem is how people have been fooled by Satan who makes people turn to liberalism, etc. He who has come as an angel of light & infiltrated modern so-called Christian churches in America. He did this throughout the middle ages in the RC church as well, to the point where the RC church became utterly corrupt and devoid of truth. And now he has accomplished the same thing with the vast majority of churches in the US; churches that reject the bible and have even perverted the word of God by rewriting and editing the bible to the point where modern versions, e.g. NIV, no longer contain much value or truth. These churches (most churches in the US) attempt to "convert" people by telling them they are such good people and they really don't need to repent of their sins (not really), although the first and most important message of the gospel is to repent. These churches have turned doctrine on its head by placing man above God (just listen to any Arminian preacher when he asks people to "allow God to work in their lives" -- what complete rubbish; see Arminianism vs Calvinism.) These churches also turn many people away from true Christianity, because many who may be seeking a higher meaning in life & are seeking the truth, seeking what is real, will not find it and perhaps also close the door to Christianity (just as many shoppers will not return to a place of business if they have a single bad experience-- but in this case they never really saw the real product in the first place.) These churches lead people to hell by the millions. The very people who came to these churches for answers and for help. The same churches which have in many ways incorporated the twin religions of liberalism and Darwinian Evolution. Who am I referring to? Just turn on the t.v. on any Sunday and watch someone preach. I have never, not once, seen a true man of God preach on television. Please do not make the mistake by thinking what I am saying is in any way hateful. If someone is heading in the wrong direction, then it's not being hateful to tell them so.

So, I enjoy this blog. I enjoy how liberals are easy targets because of the inconsistencies in the things they say and believe and do, but I am also sad that ALL conservative blogs (that I've so far read), in the end, will not have done much if any good to change America for the better.

Only God can do that.

PS: Before the hate to begins in earnest, you may want to ask yourself if your reaction to what I've written above is in anyway different than what a liberal's would be. Also, I do not hate Roman Catholics or Arminians, I simply note that these religions believe in a corrupted version of the word of God and are no longer in the truth, and are part of the main problem with America today. There are many fine RCs and Arminian people, some of whom are in my immediate family. I have no problem if RCs and others believe the same about me as I do about them. "Let God be true, but every man a liar."

Most serial killers do not use guns. It's too impersonal, and frankly it causes way too much attention. Think Son of Sam.


I was thinking about this the other day, we really don't have any "famous" serial killers working right now, and we haven't for some time. I wonder if it's related to the topic here. In other words, it serves on political purpose for the media to publicize the acts of serial killers. I have no doubt we have several working at it as we speak, it's not like they ever stop.

my country being destroyed. The blatant hatred toward America by many of
it's citizens started in our time. Maybe, when I got back from Vietnam
and had to live through the maze of hatred for the vets, I just became
too tired to say or do anything. I was full of excuses back then of why I
didn't and that was wrong.



Perhaps when the really dark times come, I'll be there as the voice for freedom. I pray for that courage.

Maybe when you got back you earned and deserved a breather. My cousin was there in '67 and '68. He got over run while on patrol around kai san right before the siege. He actually got over run twice while over there and survived, and fought in the battle for Hue. He was a marine, M-60 gunner. When he got home he was rushed through the airport because the hippy cocksuckers were throwing rocks at the returning vets. He sat up in his room for a month when he got back.

I don't blame any of the vets for hanging back after shit like that.

230 The problem with churches is that they don't lift up Jesus Christ as the living Lord. Even though I have strong political opinions, I realize America is not synonymous with the Kingdom of God. Radio preachers tend to preach on either prosperity gospel-which is heresy or they are to focused, on sad to say-politics. They are some good preachers on the radio but they are few and far between. The minister I like the best on radio comes from believe or not the "Godless" Northeast and it is called "Loving Grace Ministry". You can't get the station if you're not in NY, NJ or PA or certain times in PA but it really IS Christ centered and you can download his previous messages:

Ok, so ZH used wiki (fair warning):

Cyprus (Comments apply to the internationally recognized Greek portion of the island) has strict gun control. Private citizens are completely forbidden from owning handguns and rifles in any calber, even .22 rimfire. Only shotguns are allowed, and these require a license. Shotguns are limited to two rounds. The only shotguns typically sold in stores are double-barreled side-by-sides or over-unders. Pump actions and semiautomatics are prohibited. A private citizen can own a total of ten different shotguns. A citizen is not required to specify a reason for ownership to obtain a license, but most own their guns for hunting. Licenses are issued by provincial police. A gun license is required to buy ammunition, and ammunition sales are recorded. A shotgun owner may purchase up to 250 shells at one time. Cyprus also controls airguns, and airgun owners require a license.

So maybe its just the Greek side, which would mean the Turk side has quite the advantage in a civil war.

The bio is very vague about just what their degrees were in. Also, does it not seem a bit strange that they have 40 years of professorial experience in 5 different technical disciplines and one PhD in an unnamed subject (education is my bet)? Something is most definitely wrong here.

The Mayor of Braddock Pa pulled a shotgun on an unarmed jogger . The Mayor claimed he heard a dozen assault rifle shots then saw a man dressed head to toe in black jogging gear run out of the gunfire zone . The jogger stated to the local news, that the mayor heard kids playing with bottle rockets . The mayor's response was " I would do nothing different ... I had a duty as a mayor and as a father .

257 Hey, if you criticize California, it's because ... RACISM!

http://tinyurl.com/d3wp482

Beyond the Point of Parody
Troy Senik, Ed. · March 29, 2013 at 7:54pm

Timothy Egan, writing a lengthy mash note to California in the New York Times:

" ... There is something irrational, indeed unpatriotic, in rooting for California to fail, as so many conservatives are now doing. Sure, they are upset that the Republican Party is dead in this state — R.I.P. G.O.P. And, among the fringes, there are those who cannot accept that California is a minority-majority state, with whites making up about 39 percent of the population. They’ve seen the future and don’t like it one bit."

Swing and a miss.

The issue here isn't unthinking contempt -- conservatives don't want to see California reduced to some sort of post-apocalpytic wasteland to get their jollies. It's that they understand that there are consequences to institutional liberalism -- and they'd like to see its practitioners learn from that.

259 Cyprus firearms ownership figures: I have looked around at the same internet sources, and it's apparently just the considerable gap between what the law on Cyprus says people can own, and what they actually have in their homes and trade among themselves. Having been on other Mediterranean islands, I can say the locals often have a long history of smuggling pretty much anything including guns-- the Maltese have similar, British style laws and you would be surprised at what turns up there despite the restrictions (Uzis with silencers, anyone?). Corsica despite the strict French gun laws is awash in interesting and very modern illegal hardware, and heaven only knows what's available in Sicily.

In a way I expect if Obama and Schumer get their dream legislation, the US population would maintain an illegal arms trade that would dwarf even the Middle East, with Prohibition-like effects on people's respect for law and order, the authorities, and society in general. It's a Pandora's box that no liberal should be trying to open, or anyone else for that matter. But I expect them to keep trying.

260 I've been pointing out the racism of anti-gunners for more than twenty years, especially in usenet.

Their reaction? Calling me a n****r because I won't support repressive, racist gun controls when a White anti-gunner tells me to, and saying that I can't be Black because I disobey those same White anti-gunners' orders.

The history of gun control in North America is the history of violent White supremacism and the efforts of its proponents to achieve a "safe working environment" for themselves. After all, where's the fun in a lynching or race riot if there's no guarantee of who's going to end up dead when things shake out?

A few years ago, I was accosted by an elderly cleaner in a Lakewood, Ohio McDonald's. Part of his tirade included an assertion that the NRA should be "banned". I pointed out that the last time organizations started getting "banned", we somehow misplaced 6,000,000 Jews. His reply? He "wasn't so sure that was such a BAD thing".

We are identical twins who began our careers in science and engineering 35 years ago. Collectively, we have been teachers, researchers, and administrators in colleges and universities and worked in industry and government.

Over the last 13 years, we've been researching various hierarchies throughout the United States because we learned about the value of listening to groups who are lower in hierarchies. Charlotte led the Connections Across Cultures--a research project started in 1994 and funded with nearly $1 million from the National Science Foundation--which compiled the perspectives on math and science of several hundred women, African Americans, American Indians, Latinas and Latinos.

279 No troll here. Just a reformed (and penitent) bleeding heart liberal feminist who got to see reality up close and personal in the dysfunctional miseducation slums. Saw the propaganda crammed down the throats of students beginning in Kindergarten. Later saw the attitudes of fellow reporters at small newspapers. Know very well the voting stats. 13 % AA plus roughly 17 % Hispanic combined with 50 % of females who were, apparently, convinced by the Debbie Wasserman Schultz-Sandra Fluke hysteria over the non-existent US "War on Women." Not to mention the 11 million plus illegals who, if the POS gets his way, will have the right to vote.

I can count. If the white males don't get it together and understand what's going on is NOT a game and the sands are shifting beneath their feet then the odds of hanging onto the traditions and history of this glorious country are slim.

That's not something I want to see happen.

Why do you think the WaPo and other LSM are now "getting in your faces" with no fear of reprisal? It's because they can. Whose going to stop it if not you?

294 wyntre is just telling the truth. It's grim.

The problem is, having a lot of votes doesn't help you if you don't have a party that, if you get it elected, would help you. Obviously white guys in America have not had such a party since 1965 and the Hart-Celler act.

That's what's happened in America, and historically white countries all over the world. The politicians, academia and mass media have moved together to the detriment of white men, leaving them nobody to vote for and no way to make their potential power tell (before mass immigration reduces their share of the population enough that they can just be ridden over without the need for such tactics).

The way to over-ride the anti-democratic consensus of the elites would be to found a new party. But it costs an enormous amount of money to really make a party that can win. Working class white guys can't do it.

You need seriously wealthy people, such as the Democrats have, or to a lesser extent such as the Karl Rove types have.

So far, the wealthy have shown that they are more interested in funding sports teams or being fashionably liberal.

And the hour grows late.
