As I predicted in a February 15, 2019 iSteve post on the New York Times’ credulous coverage of Jussie’s Hate Hoax:

I imagine we’ll once again be deluged with NYT stories about late-breaking developments in the Emmett Till case.

Has J. Edgar Hoover personally taken command of the Emmett Till investigation yet? What do Democratic Presidential contenders Adlai Stevenson and Estes Kefauver have to say on this issue? I can’t wait for Edward R. Murrow’s CBS Evening Newscast to find out. Or do you think Walter Winchell will have the latest scoop? What do William Randolph Hearst and Lord Beaverbrook have to say?

I wrote in Taki’s Magazine last year:

The Emmett Till Effect
by Steve Sailer

August 08, 2018

… A subtle but likely more important issue, however, is the question of which true news gets emphasized. There is always vastly more news than a person can remember. Thus your picture of reality is inevitably distorted to some extent by the power of the media, what I call the Megaphone, to pound over and over into your head certain true news, but not other true news.

Moreover, the press furnishes us with convenient concepts, such as “white privilege,” that make it easier to remember the facts they prefer you to know and harder to remember the facts that undermine the concepts.

For example, consider two black teens who once were true news.

In 1955, Emmett Till was murdered by two white men who were quickly acquitted, making his story memorable for being one of the last examples from a long era of state-excused white-on-black civilian violence over black males hitting on white females.

In 1987, Tawana Brawley launched our present era of making up hate hoaxes against whites by claiming that the reason she got home late was because she was being gang-raped by six white policemen.

Which incident is more rationally relevant to 2018? But which does the prestige media consider more au courant? …

In 1980, the name “Emmett Till” did not appear in the pages of the NYT. In 1990 it showed up twice, and in 2000 four times.

From 2004 through 2012, the Times mentioned this old incident an average of nine times per year, and from 2013 to 2016 almost two dozen times per year.

Last year, “Emmett Till” appeared in 72 different Times articles. And this year is on track for 92 stories about the 63-year-old tragedy.

In contrast, the name “Tawana Brawley” might seem of slightly less antiquarian interest. The New York teen launched the modern era of antiwhite hate hoaxes in 1987, a few weeks after the publication of the late Tom Wolfe’s Bonfire of the Vanities best-seller about the “hunt for the Great White Defendant.”

The talented young race-racket activist Al Sharpton, the basis for Reverend Bacon in Bonfire, latched on to Tawana’s tall tale and turned it into a huge national brouhaha before it was utterly debunked and her half-dozen victims exonerated.

For a couple of decades, this instructive New York-area story was mentioned in the NYT (often in profiles explaining how Reverend Al had matured since his Tawana Brawley days, or occasionally in references to Wolfe’s magnum opus) about half as often as Emmett Till.

But in the 2010s, Tawana Brawley has come up in only 15 articles versus 249 mentioning Emmett Till.

Now, The New York Times would no doubt answer that it is merely responding to the great surfeit of events related to the Emmett Till case, such as a spat over whether a white artist should be allowed to display a painting of Emmett or whether only black painters should make money off the sacred subject.

On the other hand, the Times takes pride that it traditionally sets the agenda for the rest of the news business. So if the Times says that in 2018 Emmett Till is breaking news while Tawana Brawley is ancient history, lots of other influential media folks will follow its lead.

    For a comparable example of such nonsense reversing the perspective to demonise the innocent rather than beatify the villainous, we might write:

    Around 33 A.D., a rabble-rousing street-preacher incited a riot in Jerusalem; he was eventually arrested by authorities and, after a trial, sentenced to execution for his crimes endangering public safety.

Time and space mean nothing – devout Christians weep at the thought of Jesus’s crucifixion today even though it happened 2,000 years ago. Jesus was better known 300 years after his death than 10 years afterward. Tawana Brawley was some kind of heretic and her story does not belong to the canon and is best forgotten.

The timing of the arrest could be a narrative change op, just like the (endless) Emmett Till history lesson brought to you by The New York Times, as mentioned in Steve Sailer's article. I did four years in the Coast Guard, back in the 1980s. It was basically whitey paradise. I was a boatswain's mate, so I was around guns and guys who liked guns. I don't recall any aspiring Nazis or nationalists. Despite the Cold War turned hot by Reaganism (in reality, Bushism), those days seemed pretty peaceful.

  30. The NYT tweet also contains a semi-deliberate factual error; Till was accused of sexually assaulting Carolyn Bryant, whereas the prosecution in the trial of his killers claimed he had merely whistled at her.

    The Blessed Martyr St. Emmett must have lived a life totally without current-year fault, so the story must be retconned to “accused of whistling.”

    Not, of course, that anything he might’ve done justified murdering him, particularly in so brutal a manner.

    Another recent saga in need of a #MeToo rewrite is the Scottsboro Boys case, since the defense case consisted of calling the accusers provocatively dressed lying slut whores who were asking for it.

    • Replies: @Anon
    The Scottsbori Boys like Sacco Vanzetti was a fund raiser for the communist party USA. With the ruble worth nothing Russia couldn’t support communist parties they had to support themselves.

    One fund raiser was to find a defendant and form a defense fund raiser organization. Most of the money raised from idiot intellectual ignorant gullible naive empty brain liberals went to the communist party. Some went to the legal defense fund.

    That was the Scottsboro Boys. One tactic was to send the mothers around the country to ask for contributions. There were 9 rapists. The party had 14 black women claiming to be the mothers appearing before ignorant gullible naive brainwashed liberals begging for donations.
    The boys were very under class rural kids. But the mothers were very ladylike well spoken women. Those were the days when poor southerners White and black left school at age 10 and southern accents were very thick. So who were those well spoken ladies.

    Angela Davis’ mother was like Angela a communist and very active in the Scottsboro Boys defense. The sanctimonious Quakers we’re heavily involved as well.

    The Scottsoro Boys was the first attack on White women rape victims. It accelerated with Emmet Till. The supreme victory of liberals over White rape victims was To Kill a Mockingbird. Liberals targeted White women for rape by blacks the way they later targeted White men for affirmative action discrimination.

    2 White teen age girls, 9 animals raping them. And then to be vilified for the rest of their lives by White liberals

    And the myth that White women make false accusations against black rapists lasted a good 40 years mid 1930s to about 1975 when the opportunistic feminazis seized on anti rape as a way to make money and attack White men. I really enjoyed it when the feminazis realized that blacks not Whites are the rapists.

    2 teenage girls 9 animals and hated and vilified for the rest of their lives by liberals.

    No, slaves who raped poor white women were defended by the slaveowners, who lawyers usually called the victim prostitutes. Slaveholders did not want to take a loss by having their valuable slave convicted hanged. No lynching in those days

    In 1976, NBC television had a "docudrama"based on the book of the case that was thought to be authoritative on the Scottsboro Boys case, but Victoria Price who always insisted she told the truth sued for defamation over the assertion that she had been a prostitute. After initially having her case thrown out, she appealed and the Supreme Court agreed to hear a reading of records NBC settled out of court and Price was able to buy a house.

    Louis Till (Emmett Till's father) was hung for the rape and murder of a woman during the United States' World War II occupation of Italy. European women were afraid of rapes by U.S. black soldiers. The military dealt with the problem by making an example of Till. It is referenced by T. S. Elliott in one of his poems.

    Louis Till would never have been allowed in the Army once they instituted the IQ93 cutoff (hard cutoff from the early 1990s? Softer cutoff from the 1970s?).

    See Steve Sailer, Nov. 2006, on “Average IQ of U.S. Enlisted Men,” writing on the old iSteve blogspot and just before he introduced commenting (Dec. 2006, in response to taunting from Malcolm Gladwell; Thanks, Malcolm!).

    There was an incident in Okinawa during the post-war occupation when villagers killed a group of black soldiers who were routinely raping local women. They managed to keep it a secret and the story only came out in the 1990s. (The army just assumed the soldiers had deserted.)

    People really are stupid for making ANY comments on the internet or their phone that the media and government can spin into these accusations.

    Remember the Hutaree Militia? Some hapless bozos getting druk around the campfire after their "drills" one upping each other about what they would do when the ..... Some informant trying to save themselves from jail was recording and egging them on. The informant could never get them past the blarney stage but the FBI and DOJ still went with it. Luckily the judge saw through it and tosed most of it out. The rest died with that.

    This Coastie left a data trail of white nationalist musings and a hit list of liberal favorites. The DOJ, an infected organism, undoubtedly had this guy under surveillance for a while. The timing of the arrest could be a narrative change op, just like the (endless) Emmett Till history lesson brought to you by The New York Times, as mentioned in Steve Sailer’s article. I did four years in the Coast Guard, back in the 1980s. It was basically whitey paradise. I was a boatswain’s mate, so I was around guns and guys who liked guns. I don’t recall any aspiring Nazis or nationalists. Despite the Cold War turned hot by Reaganism (in reality, Bushism), those days seemed pretty peaceful. We are going through a revolutionary cycle now. Are you the guy with the keys to the time machine?

    And we can't get a single--not one--republican to talk honestly about this.

    The left\Jewish\Democrat\establishment minoritarian narrative of big bad whitey is just a big bag of shit. We need leaders who are willing to stand up and say "it's a big bag of shit".

    Sure there were (generously) a few thousand blacks and another thousand whites lynched. Most deserving criminals--this was mostly "informal justice"--though denied due process.

    But racial violence today--and during my entire life, and i'm an old guy now--is overwhelmingly visited by blacks on people of other races, mostly whites. (The only significant exception is when\where mexican gangs are pushing blacks out as mexicans take over neighborhoods--mostly in Los Angeles and mostly finished now.)

    And furthermore it is black criminal violence--along with sub-criminal assholery--that is pretty much the sole cause of any external--i.e. not caused by blacks themselves--impediment that blacks face. The largest difficulty blacks have is their own personal behavior--generated by their IQ, personality traits. But to the small extent there's "racism" at play, it's almost entirely because people of other races--white, mestizo, Asian--just don't want to be exposed to black violence and criminality and so try and keep away from blacks.

    This needs to be said, and said repeatedly whenever the "racism" charge is trotted out. America needs leaders in touch with reality and willing to speak the truth.

    White people indulged the obscene lies of Zionists in Middle Eastern affairs. These very Zionists took control of media & academia and went about doing everything they’d done to Palestinians to white Americans. It’s almost as if Zionist destruction of Palestine was mere dress rehearsal for globohomo destruction of all the West(and beyond).

    Smollett was emboldened to pull such stunt because the Powers that be in media and academia have been pushing the Narrative. Just like the Narrative favored Zionists over Palestinians — holy holocaust Jews vs terrorist Palestinians — , the Narrative favored black louts, Jewish liars, and homo lechers as Holy Untouchable Saints over normal people and white people as Eternal Villains. Look at NYT. Its idea of responding to the Smollett case is to drag out the Emmit Till narrative.

    Unless whites confess and correct what they did to Palestinians, nothing will change. Whites have to finally tell the truth and admit they aided and abetted in the Zionist defamation, destruction,and humiliation of an innocent people. Only then can Jewish power be shamed into its abuses and evils. Only then will Jews stop acting like they are the holiest thing in the universe hogging the bully pulpit. These hate hoaxes are attacks on innocent whites. Where whites are truly guilty is in having aided and abetted the Zionists in their use of lies to serve “Is it good for Jews?”

    Emitt Till? Let’s talk about Nakba. Let’s talk about Sassoon and opium trade. Let’s talk about Jewish role in Brazilian slavery. Let’s talk about Jewish role in communism. Let’s talk about Wars for Israel premised on total lies.

    If white people keep indulging the lies of Zionists that killed so many people, they lack credibility in making a big deal about Smollett. Whites need to realize that these hate hoaxes, along with Antifa and SPLC, are Jewish-controlled or Jewish-encouraged race war on the white race that are no different in character than US-Zionist propaganda to deny Palestinians a nation of their own, defame Muslims as born terrorists, and spread Wars for Israel that destroys Muslim nations and fills up the West with more ‘refugees’. Muslims do have a terrorism problem, but 99% of it wouldn’t exist if not for Zionist-US interference in Middle East and North African yrs.

  45. In 1955, 14-year-old Emmett Till walked into a Mississippi store to buy candy. After being accused of whistling at the white woman behind the counter, he was kidnapped, lynched and dumped into a river.

    Even in this tiny tweet, the NYT is lying by ommission.

    “Whistling at a white woman” is not all that Till was accused of doing. Whatever Till did the young wife ran from the store and went to her car for her gun.

    Of course, we don’t know exactly what Till actually did. But we also don’t know what the wife accused Till of doing relating it to her husband.

    The NYT is trying to imply that Till whistled–or was accused of same–and the white citizens rose up and lynched him. What actually happened is that Till came on to a store owner’s wife in an isolated country store and he and the gal’s brother went out looking for revenge. (Which–as best we can tell–only became murder because Till was such an unrepentant hardcase.)

  73. Is it just me, or is it rayciss to refer to the lynching of a black youth as America’s “Darkest Moment?”

  74. The odds are that Emmett Till was a 1950s gang banger in Chicago who did far more in Mississippi than just whistle. The odds are great, given the history of the mainstream media and liberal academia and jurisprudence, that the received Emmett Till story is Fake News.

    Till's mother sent him down to Mississippi in part to get him away from the mean streets of Chicago so that he wouldn't end up like his criminal father.
    According to the interview conducted by Look magazine after the trial, Till had done more than merely whistle. He snuck up behind Carolyn Bryant and put his hand around her waist and uttered something so vile about being with a black man that she tore herself away and went for her gun. Till high-tailed it out of the store and was urged by his cousins to get out of town immediately before word got back to Bryant's husband. His cocky urban attitude, no doubt seen as a necessity in Chicago, would prove deadly down south. His refusal to leave towm, coupled with his defiance after being abducted, would prove his undoing.
  75. @Logan
    FWIW, Emmet Till's murder doesn't fit the accepted definition of a lynching. It was a private murder, differing from thousands that occur every year only in motivation.

    True – and if Till had been in Chicago, the odds are good that some blacks on the street eventually would have killed him.

    Given the media's track record, I'm starting to wonder if the Emmett Till case wasn't a complete hoax, too.

    He tried to rape her. She got out of his grasp and got the gun they kept under the counter threatened him and he ran off.

    He got exactly what he deserved. She was 5’2 100 pds. The animal was 5’8 150. He lay in wait outside the store till closing time when the store was empty.

    People really are stupid for making ANY comments on the internet or their phone that the media and government can spin into these accusations.

    Remember the Hutaree Militia? Some hapless bozos getting druk around the campfire after their "drills" one upping each other about what they would do when the ..... Some informant trying to save themselves from jail was recording and egging them on. The informant could never get them past the blarney stage but the FBI and DOJ still went with it. Luckily the judge saw through it and tosed most of it out. The rest died with that.

    Composition of a 10 man White militia cell. 2 ATF agents 3 FBI agents 2 ADL agents 2 SPLC agents 1 local guy who lives in a home for developmentally disabled (retarded) adults.

    Whatever he actually did do inside the shop and yell as he was being driven away, the allegation by locals, black and white, was never that Till (a husky youth who looked like a man) merely whistled. The men said they had agreed beforehand to pistol whip Till and get him begging for mercy.

    It was his mother who suggested he had whistled because he did that all the time (to keep from stuttering). Till was not killed for his behaviour in the shop, but rather his defiant attitude during a severe beating days later.

    I am betting the NYT found the disappearance of Andrew Goodman and his companions was a much bigger story at the time, LBJ personally phoned up the Goodman family home to give them latest news. Goodman and his pal died because they let a local black drive them, and unnerved by the cars following them, the black made the fatal error of turning off the busy main road.

    Till was not killed for his behaviour in the shop, but rather his defiant attitude during a severe beating days later.

    It was Mississippi in the ’50s- I’m sure if Bryant and Milam had gone to Till’s uncle and politely demanded action, he would have been more than happy to take off his belt and thrash the boy himself, in which case nobody would have ended up dead.

    • Replies: @Sean
    Till and his cousins were given the car to go to Sunday School I think. It was her relatively big breasts (she is a tiny woman) that was the subject of discussion not candy and according to an account by one of the cousins, Till had went into the store on a dare by to show what he could do with white girls as he had been boasting about. He made definite advances (to the extent a local black came out and told them they had a crazy cousin) and then loudly called her baby as they were hastily driving away, the cousins having correctly surmised she had gone to get a gun. Local blacks told the husband (the wife had tried to keep it a secret). No local black liked Till, he was what you would call ADHD today, so they seem to have exaggerated what happened in the telling. I don't think a thrashing by his uncle (assuming Till would have submitted to it) could have prevented Bryant from becoming a laughing stock. They apparently did not know Till was only 14 or even who he was because they beat up at least one local black man they had mistaken for him.


    Even in backwater Mississippi in the ’50s, there was no way they could have expected to get away with anything close to killing Till, and they had a small rural shop with black clientele. Contrary to what they said later in the story they sold about taking a stand, I think there was never an actual decision to kill, but like a lot of blacks, Till could take a tremendous amount of punishment without losing consciousness and he kept talking back, and they had injured him too badly by the time he shut up. It was probabally Bryant's oversized ex-WW2 paratrooper half brother Milam, who had quite a reputation for violence against blacks and whites alike before Till's homicide. and went on to get in trouble with the law for fraud and assault in the years afterward.

    The NYT tweet also contains a semi-deliberate factual error; Till was accused of sexually assaulting Carolyn Bryant, whereas the prosecution in the trial of his killers claimed he had merely whistled at her.

    The Blessed Martyr St. Emmett must have lived a life totally without current-year fault, so the story must be retconned to "accused of whistling."

    Not, of course, that anything he might've done justified murdering him, particularly in so brutal a manner.

    Another recent saga in need of a #MeToo rewrite is the Scottsboro Boys case, since the defense case consisted of calling the accusers provocatively dressed lying slut whores who were asking for it.

    The Scottsbori Boys like Sacco Vanzetti was a fund raiser for the communist party USA. With the ruble worth nothing Russia couldn’t support communist parties they had to support themselves.

    One fund raiser was to find a defendant and form a defense fund raiser organization. Most of the money raised from idiot intellectual ignorant gullible naive empty brain liberals went to the communist party. Some went to the legal defense fund.

    That was the Scottsboro Boys. One tactic was to send the mothers around the country to ask for contributions. There were 9 rapists. The party had 14 black women claiming to be the mothers appearing before ignorant gullible naive brainwashed liberals begging for donations.
    The boys were very under class rural kids. But the mothers were very ladylike well spoken women. Those were the days when poor southerners White and black left school at age 10 and southern accents were very thick. So who were those well spoken ladies.

    Angela Davis’ mother was like Angela a communist and very active in the Scottsboro Boys defense. The sanctimonious Quakers we’re heavily involved as well.

    The Scottsoro Boys was the first attack on White women rape victims. It accelerated with Emmet Till. The supreme victory of liberals over White rape victims was To Kill a Mockingbird. Liberals targeted White women for rape by blacks the way they later targeted White men for affirmative action discrimination.

    2 White teen age girls, 9 animals raping them. And then to be vilified for the rest of their lives by White liberals

    And the myth that White women make false accusations against black rapists lasted a good 40 years mid 1930s to about 1975 when the opportunistic feminazis seized on anti rape as a way to make money and attack White men. I really enjoyed it when the feminazis realized that blacks not Whites are the rapists.

    2 teenage girls 9 animals and hated and vilified for the rest of their lives by liberals.

    Yep, I hear about Emmett Till supposedly the worst American crime like it happened yesterday. Meanwhile only a few honest reporters here in Chicago like John Kass write honestly about the week’s horrors like Black gang members shooting a 1 year old boy in the head:

    https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/columnists/kass/ct-met-jussie-smollett-kass-20190219-story.html

    Also the true facts of the real Emmett Till case are a bit different than the official narrative of pure good (little innocent Emmet Till who dindu nuffin) and the terrible White Racists in Mississippi.

    Emmett Till did a lot more than just whistle at a White woman. He did some very serious sexual harassment with threats bordering very close to rape.

    And where were Emmett Till’s mother and father to provide this teen with the love and discipline to make him grow up to be a responsible, decent Black American citizen?

    We know that Emmett’s mother was around and she moved him to the South because she wanted to get her son away from the violence and corruptions of the streets of Chicago – that makes sense.

    But, Emmett’s father – where was he?

    Emmett’s father was arrested, tried, convicted and yes executed for raping many (White) Italian women during World War II.

    In 1955, 14-year-old Emmett Till walked into a Mississippi store to buy candy. After being accused of whistling at the white woman behind the counter, he was kidnapped, lynched and dumped into a river.
     
    Even in this tiny tweet, the NYT is lying by ommission.

    "Whistling at a white woman" is not all that Till was accused of doing. Whatever Till did the young wife ran from the store and went to her car for her gun.

    Of course, we don't know exactly what Till actually did. But we also don't know what the wife accused Till of doing relating it to her husband.

    The NYT is trying to imply that Till whistled--or was accused of same--and the white citizens rose up and lynched him. What actually happened is that Till came on to a store owner's wife in an isolated country store and he and the gal's brother went out looking for revenge. (Which--as best we can tell--only became murder because Till was such an unrepentant hardcase.)

    Mrs, Bryant didn’t tell her husband initially–she was afraid of what he would do to the cretin who assaulted her.

    And the other man wasn’t Mrs. Bryant’s brother, it was Mr. Bryant’s half-brother.

  93. It is well known, but in the mainstream relative to Till? Over the years it has been difficult to avoid in depth MSM accounts of Till’s murder, and the NYT seem to have an ever increasing fixation with it.

  95. As far as Emmit Till’s father goes —

    Rapes of Italian women during WW2 was a sensitive spot for the Italians. I remember about 50 years ago watching the 1960 Italian movie Two Women on late night TV. There is a scene in which the two Sicilian women, one played by Sophia Loeren, were gang raped by Moroccan Allied soldiers.

  102. When the Smollet story first came out my immediate reaction was this had to be nonsense, in Chicago the Black people attack the White people, not the other way around.

    Then I read all of these news reports that say how horrible it was that Smollet did this hoax because now no one will believe real hate crime victims, of which there are thousands and thousands.

    What I can’t find from Googling – how many White on Black violent hate crimes are there? I mean real violence, not looking at someone funny. I sense that these are few and far between – I read the NY Times and my local urban newspaper regularly, and have never read of a single incident.

    What I do read about frequently (or surmise from the names as they don’t usually report race) is lots of Black on White violent crimes which apparently don’t count as hate crimes unless the perpetrator shouts “I hate you because you are white” as he is performing the mugging.

    My question – any statistics out there on White on Black violent hate crimes? My hunch is that for the most part they don’t exist, but I’d like to know for certain.
