Imagine that four white punks had tortured a disabled black kid and F-bombed Barack Obama for public amusement. There would be an desperate run on storefront plywood in Chicago. Sturm und drang from MSNBC. Turgid tsk-tsking from The Nation’s stable of socialists. Don Lemon extra Red Bull nasty. The victim invited to the White House.
Inconveniently for the identity politics industry, the victim was white and the perps (most of them) proud of their depravity.
The nation’s race baiter in chief offered his typical Mike Dukakis, non-judgmental sangfroid:
“What we have seen as surfacing, I think, are a lot of problems that have been there a long time,” said Obama, a longtime resident of Chicago. “Whether it’s tensions between police and communities…”
Tensions between police and communities! One no more culpable than the other. Tensions with police! Now do you understand why the four thugs beat on that poor kid? They’re the community and they have tensions with police. Time to take down a disabled white kid!
“For the next 25 minutes, the abuse continues for the world to see. The victim is repeatedly kicked and punched, but his screams are apparently ignored.” CNN reports:
Video of the attack shows the 18-year-old victim cowering in a corner of a room, tied up with his mouth bound in plastic. His eyes exude fear as his attackers get ready for their next act. One assailant slashes his sweatshirt with a knife. The young woman streaming the abuse on Facebook Live repeatedly turns the camera back to herself.An attacker then takes a knife to the victim’s head, carving a patch off his scalp. For the next 25 minutes, the abuse continues for the world to see. The victim is repeatedly kicked and punched, but his screams are apparently ignored.
Fortunately for the sensibilities of Well Off White Men like Paul Fanlund, the Black Lives Matter hate group has been absolved of complicity. “Police said they have not seen any connection to the Black Lives Matter activist group, contrary to some reports on social media,” CNN reported. Whew! That’s a relief! No paper trail connects to BLM grand wizard DeRay Mckesson.
Yes, Chicago police are formally adding the hate crime enhancer, which the Policy Werkes here has never liked. All crimes against the person are born of hate. But if it’s going to be on the books, it ought to be applied ecumenically.
Are conservatives seizing on the race hate angle? Sure. They’re only responding to the news media and liberal politicians (led by Obama) obsession with race over accountability. The lie of “Hands up, don’t shoot.” It is a culture that causes elected officials in Madison to think the problem is police — not drug-abusing gang bangers.
What is most shocking is how the Chicago perps reveled in their depravity, boasted about it, shared it with the world, expected adulation. It worked that way in Nazi Germany — the more outrages, the less the outrage. Chicago — murder capital of the U.S —is truly sick (a good portion of it, anyway).
“Cruelty on that level … it’s evil. … We have allowed this racism to run rampant … because the Left has given them an excuse. … There is a sickness in the black community, my friends.” says national commentator James T. Harris (a native of Milwaukee).
F-bomb Fallujah, Aleppo, and Baghdad.
President Obama, put boots on the ground in Chicago. Take over the schools, the streets, and the services. Police the hell out of that place — and Milwaukee, while you’re at it.
