A month after the Trayvon Martin killing, protests continue to mount, spurred on by the White House and President Obama blatantly attempting to incite the Democratic Party base and demoralize that of the GOP.
At the same time, helpfully publicized by guerilla websites like Drudge, VDARE.com and my own SBPDL, the Left-wing narrative is unwinding with embarrassing speed—see for example, Trayvon Martin case: Martin was the aggressor, police sources say, by Rene Lynch, Chicago Tribune, March 26, 2012.
The shooting of Trayvon Martin has become the defining moment in the Obama Presidency. It’s becoming obvious that, as the 50 black teenagers shouted at the white Marshall family when they attacked their home in Akron, Ohio, after the 2009 July 4th weekend: “This is a black world.” [Akron police investigate teen mob attack on family, By Phil Trexler, Akron Beacon Journal, July 7, 2009]
(Not much seems to have been done about this—see follow-up stores from the same reporter: FBI asked to investigate attack on white family near Firestone Park, July 10, 2009 and Akron Attack Victims Frustrated With Police ResponseJuly 20, 2009.)
Obama did not go on record or call it a “soul searching” moment:
- in the summer of 2011, when hundreds of black people attacked whites at the Wisconsin State Fair in Milwaukee, pulling them from their cars;
- when Carter Strange was assaulted by a group of black people in Columbia, South Carolina and left for dead;
- when The Detroit Free Press published a special investigative, multiple-part work (Living with Murder, November 12, 2011) that reported in 89 percent black Detroit, 3,313 lives have been taken since 2003?
Almost of all the black people murdered in America are killed by other black people. This is one of the primary reasons that cities with high populations of minorities have lower property values and a discernible lack of a business district: people are fearful of raising a family there. And they are right to be fearful.
Indeed, in a number of cities with impossible high rates of black-on-black crime, city leaders, police, officials, and members of the black community have appealed for extraordinary measures (even “martial law”) to stabilize the situation.
- In Harrisburg, PA, a representative of the NAACP asked for “martial law” to be declared because of black youth violence:
The Harrisburg Chapter of the NAACP is calling on Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell to suspend some civil liberties and impose martial law in the city to halt the wave of recent lawlessness.
Chapter President Stanley Lawson also called on Rendell to bring in the state National Guard for at least 30 days and to impose a curfew. In June, there have been at least 12 shootings, many of them in the daytime, including a man killed Wednesday at a busy city intersection during the lunch hour.
- In Cleveland, Ohio, an emergency curfew was passed—to the objection of the ACLU over the racial connotations—because of black Flash Mobs attacking law-abiding citizens, the first step toward martial law being declared and freedom for everyone being eroded.
- In Columbia, SC, an emergency curfew was passed after the beating of Carter Strange. The ACLU objected to the idea of a curfew because it would be primarily black people affected by the rule). [Columbia curfew proposal faces opposition]
- In Newark, New Jersey, Mayor Cory Booker was forced to create a Safe City Task Force and suspend freedoms for everyone by implementing an emergency curfew.
- In Indianapolis, because of the high numbers of shootings of black people by fellow black people at the 2010 Indiana black Expo, the 2011 version had hundreds of extra police and volunteers in a bid to keep the peace. But at what cost? Erika Smith, writing for the Indy Star, reported happily that no one was shot, but noted: “It looked like the government had declared martial law after the sun went down Friday.”
- In, Birmingham, Alabama (71 percent black) teen curfews were instituted, because the city was tired of seeing so many of its black citizens profiled on A&E’s The First 48. [Summer keeps Birmingham-area law enforcement busy with teen curfew enforcement and crowd control, By Lisa Osburn,The Birmingham News, July 02, 2011,]
- In Iowa City, IA (85 percent white) Rising crime rates forced an emergency curfew to be enacted, where minorities (primarily black) became the primary offenders cited by police.
In Louisiana, State Rep. Austin Badon has stated that the National Guard should patrol New Orleans’ Bourbon Street again—not because of Hurricane Katrina looters, but because of high rates of black-on-black crime. The New York Times was appalled to find that the “killers and their victims are overwhelmingly young black men”. [New Orleans Struggles to Stem Homicides, By Campbell Robertson, December 7, 2011] black people cried foul when a new curfew was introduced in The Big Easy in early 2012, even though the law was enacted on their behalf.
- In Chicago IL, President Obama’s home city, Democrats John Fritchey and LaShawn Ford have called for both military intervention and martial law because black-on-black crime/murder is rising.
- In Philadelphia PA, black Flash Mob violence (and black-on-black violence), prompting the city to pass an emergency curfew for the remainder of the summer.
- In Atlanta GA, Noticing trends across the nation, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed worked with the city council to pass a city-wide curfew for the majority black metropolis.
- Les Smith of the Memphis, Tennessee’s local Fox affiliate, reported that black-on-black murders were rising in both Nashville and Memphis:
Black on black killings have been on the rise in the Music City. The Washington D.C. based Violence Policy Center noted Nashville had 42 African American murders in 2008, with an even higher rate than Memphis in 2009. Nearly half the murder total can be pinpointed to the large public housing communities such as Napier and Tony Sudekum Homes.
Unlike Memphis where years of concerted effort by the city to pursue federal grants resulting in the abolishment of 5 infamous housing projects, Nashville has been slow in tearing down such violence-breeding enclaves
- In St. Louis, MO, black-on-black crime (not to mention black people playing “Knockout King”, a game where they target white and Asians for assault), forced the city to pass curfew rules for downtown, which—hilariously—were used against Occupy protestors in November of 2011.
There’s a silver-lining to all this though: High rates of “urban” crime in St. Louis —invariably black-on-black—helps prepare Air Force trauma surgeons for the type of blunt wounds they’ll see in combat.
Similarly, high levels of black on black crime in Baltimore makes the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center an excellent place for training military doctors before they are deployed to conflict zones around the world.
It’s not polite to report on black-on-black crime. You might upset the black community.
Thus in 2010, the Buffalo News was attacked by the black community in the city after daring to publish a story that acknowledged high levels of black criminality:
By Harold McNeil, September 1, 2010
About 700 members of Buffalo`s African-American community tonight shared their grievances with Buffalo News Editor Margaret Sullivan over an Aug. 22 article on the criminal backgrounds of victims of the shooting at the City Grill three weeks ago. [7 of 8 shooting victims had criminal past | Some suggest lifestyle, associations may have put them in harm`s way February 19, 2011]
The forum, held in True Bethel Baptist Church, 907 E. Ferry St., was one that Sullivan had requested following negative reaction to the report.
Many in the crowd expressed outrage that the police records of the shooting victims were reported at all. They called the report a gross departure from how The News traditionally treats crime victims and that it was disrespectful to the victims, their families and the African-American community.
One of the most important, and overlooked, news items to come out of Wikileaks: the news that black Democrats in Philadelphia and Ohio engaged in voter fraud during the 2008 President of the United States election. Andrea Shea King of WND.com reported that
“2008 Republican presidential candidate John McCain decided not to pursue legal action against the Democrats for engaging in voter fraud, believing that to do so would have thrown the country into civil unrest…” [Wikileaks reveals Democrat 2008 election crimes, March 5, 2012]
According to one leaked email on Wikileaks.org:
After discussions with his inner circle, which explains the delay in his speech, McCain decided not to pursue the voter fraud in PA and Ohio, despite his staff`s desire to make it an issue. He said no. Staff felt they could get a federal injunction to stop the process. McCain felt the crowds assembled in support of Obama and such would be detrimental to our country and it would do our nation no good for this to drag out like last go around, coupled with the possibility of domestic violence.
But since Obama’s election, we’ve had nothing but “domestic violence” in communities across the country—with the rights of law-abiding citizens restricted due to the actions of, primarily, black males.
Looking at the landscape of the America in 2012, seeing how many cities require curfews to keep the peace, it is easy to discern the type of “civil unrest” McCain feared. [VDARE.com Note: From our we-told-you-so files, see The Riots Next Time? Racial Violence Looms If Barack Obama Loses—Or Wins, By Matthew Richer on October 24, 2008]
Why does Obama demand “soul-searching” over the death of Trayvon Martin, when every day in America there are hundreds of incidents that should cause all of us to stop and think?
If the eventual GOP nominee is smart, he’ll make this moment—when Barack Obama interjected himself into a sub judice situation whose details are still emerging—decisive in the 2012 race for the White House.
He will demand that President Obama explain why all those murdered black people (forget white people) in Detroit and elsewhere—killed by other black people – aren’t worthy of a “soul searching” moment.
How about it, Mittens?
