The White Supremacy Bogeyman
After the Michael Brown and Freddie Gray sagas, one has to be careful about jumping to conclusions whenever a young black man gets killed by police. As you will recall, the race hustlers in those cases looked absolutely ridiculous when the facts came out. The Michael Brown fairy tale about his being a “gentle giant” who was trying to turn himself in while shouting “Hands up, don’t shoot!” was especially ridiculous, for many reasons.
First of all, Brown was far from being a “gentle” anything. He was, in fact, a violent bully who appeared intent on killing a cop. Second, numerous witnesses (all black) confirmed that he never even said the words “Hands up, don’t shoot!” It was just part of the media-created narrative. (That, however, did not stop the Los Angeles Rams from mimicking the fake narrative by coming out of the team tunnel with their hands pointed skyward.)
As the facts unfolded, the fake Michael Brown story became downright embarrassing for race charlatans, especially after Eric Holder, the most corrupt attorney general in U.S. history (prior to the arrival of Merrick Garland, of course) announced there was no “prosecutable conduct” on the part of the police officer who killed Brown.
Predictably, none of this phased the fake-news crowd. No sooner was the Michael Brown embarrassment conveniently forgotten, along came the Freddie Gray hoax in Baltimore. The narrative on that one was so absurd that after two of the five officers accused of causing Gray’s death were acquitted at trial, charges against the other three were dropped.
The newest outrage death of a young black man is Tyre Nichols in Memphis. We don’t know yet what Nichols did to so enrage the police, but it’s safe to say that no matter what it was, it certainly didn’t justify kicking and beating a man lying on the ground and screaming for help. In this particular case, all five officers brutalizing the suspect were black, which makes it more difficult for the media to inject race into the incident.
Difficult, but not impossible. None other than CNN’s Van Jones, who usually manages to portray a modicum of sobriety, turned a tragic incident into a bad joke by suggesting that even though all of the cops were black, Nichols’ death “might have been driven by racism.” Not only are these kinds of comments stupid, more often than not they are intended to create hatred among racial groups. Clearly, people who engage in such tactics have no regard for human life, especially the lives of those trapped in inner-city ghettos.
Predictably, “Antifa,” the enforcement arm of the Democrat Party used the Tyre Nichols tragedy as yet another opportunity to wreak violence on American cities. Of course, if Antifa — whom Joe Biden once cavalierly brushed aside as “just an idea” — really wanted to help people of color, it would go into cities like Chicago, Baltimore, and Memphis and confront gang members who thrive on terrorizing black communities.
Worst of all, fake outrage and fake race hoaxes numb people into doubting genuine acts of violence against people of color. In that regard, cretins like Jussie Smollett and Bubba Wallace can be likened to the Africans who captured and sold their own people into bondage. Let’s face it, the purpose of their race hoaxes was to promote their own careers, consequences to blacks be damned.
Promoting racism is nothing short of evil, because it hurts the very people whom leftists pretend to care about. A person has to have a genuinely cold heart to engage in a race hoax that he knows full well is going to create more hatred and violence among races.
The obsession with racism in a post-racial America has led to severe mental illness among those who see white supremacy lurking around every corner. This was on full display when Hanoi Jane took nuttiness to a whole new level by insisting that “There would be no climate crisis if it wasn’t for racism.”
The white supremacy thing is getting old. It’s nothing more than a bogeyman created by Democrats, but don’t look for it to end anytime soon, because it goes all the way back to antebellum America. Democrats have controlled and manipulated blacks through slavery, Reconstruction, Jim Crow, the Ku Klux Klan, and the implementation of the modern welfare state, and they are more determined than ever not to give up control of a voting group they have always been able to take for granted.
Their mantra is straightforward: “If you have to think about whether to vote for a Republican or Democrat, you ain’t black.”
