PK NOTE: 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing is upon us. Pick up a copy of ‘Whitey on the Moon’: Race, Politics, and the death of the U.S. Space Program, 1958 – 1972 to remember this monumental occasion, and what happened to the space program after Apollo 17 landed back on earth.

And not once in this article or the studies cited within the piece do we learn young black and brown men are disproportionately impacted by gun violence, because young black and brown people shoot each other disproportionately, causing the “urban” violence so overwhelmingly impacting non-whites. [Democrats are skipping out on the most important gun fight of all, Boston Globe, July 19, 2019]:



IN THE DEMOCRATIC primary campaign for president, candidates are going bigger and bolder on guns than ever before. Senator Elizabeth Warren has called for a “public health approach” to preventing gun violence. Before withdrawing from the race, Representative Eric Swalwell proposed a mandatory buyback for military-style weapons. Senator Cory Booker has advocated for a national gun licensing program and tried to highlight his policies in Boston recently (before bad weather forced him to cancel).

All that said, the candidates are still failing to focus on what is simultaneously the most serious and most solvable form of such violence: shootings and killings on the streets of our cities.

Urban violence accounts for the overwhelming majority of homicides in the United States, and it disproportionately affects poor people of color. For young Latino men, homicide is the second-leading cause of death. For young African-American men, it is not just the leading cause of death; homicide accounts for more deaths than the nine other top causes combined.



Not surprisingly, addressing such violence is critically important to people of color, a key Democratic constituency. In one survey of 1,200 African Americans and Latinos, 80 percent of African Americans and 54 percent of Latinos agreed that gun violence was an “extremely serious problem,” even more so than police misconduct or mass incarceration.

Finally, while urban violence disproportionately affects poor racial minorities, the general public also pays for violence via higher taxes, increased insurance premiums, diminished economic activity, and lower property values. Crediblestudies estimate the total cost of a single homicide to range between $10 million and $19 million in 2017 dollars. Multiply those figures by the thousands of homicides that year and the cost to the average American was between $531 and $1,020.

Some places have it worse than others, of course. But none are immune. Massachusetts may have the lowest gun death rate in the nation, but Boston still saw a rash of 17 shootings in five days over the Fourth of July weekend.

Unlike other forms of gun violence, there is plenty of research and data on urban crime. Today we know enough to provide a strong sense of how to tackle this terrible problem.

Somehow, black and brown people shooting one another on a daily basis in America’s largest cities is the fault of white people and their creating of communities where predominantly white people reside. Thus, white people must lose their 2nd Amendment rights, because black and brown people in urban America can’t stop shooting one another. 

Black people shooting black people in communities and neighborhoods of Chicago, Boston, Baltimore, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Dallas, Houston, Miami, Charlotte, Pittsburgh, Atlanta, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Indianapolis, and New York City where few white people dare traverse is obviously the fault of white people and the nefarious structural racism they engineer.

This, this is truly what the ruling elite believe and postulate as the reason why almost all of the gun violence in urban America affects black people (never once daring to publish the arrest rates for black and brown people in fatal and nonfatal shootings ).

A genetic predisposition to violence among black people is the obvious reason, but such an admission for the high rates of gun violence among black people would dismantle the carefully constructed pillars of egalitarianism precariously holding together Black-Run America (BRA).

Brick by brick, they are coming down.

  3. Here’s one from Baltimore that is worth paying attention to. A new Deputy Commissioner of Police, and his wife, are reported to have been robbed at gunpoint, while on foot in a socioeconomically healthy neighborhood, by two young African-American males from a group of four persons that were traveling in an SUV:

    https://foxbaltimore.com/news/local/baltimore-deputy-police-commissioner-robbed-at-gunpoint-friday-might

    https://www.wmar2news.com/news/crime-checker/baltimore-city-crime/baltimore-police-deputy-commissioner-and-wife-robbed-at-gunpoint-near-patterson-park

    Whether the four were aware that they were attacking a Deputy Commissioner of Police is not reported. My sense, from observing the seemingly targeted nature of a number of recent assaults in other socioeconomically healthy areas of the city, is that plausibly they -may- have been. The act of emerging from a motor vehicle to commit a mugging remains a very uncommon occurrence, in Baltimore.

  4. The year of my final stage of “waking up” was about 1990. I had fallen asleep for about 15 years because I had been running a successful business and was also planning my escape from New York.

    I was shocked to find out that what I thought was a local New York City problem (crime) had now become a nation wide plague. My days of being a part time sleep walker were over. We all know how much worse crime has become in the last thirty years. In the last few years or so I have noticed that America is suffering from a massive disease called the STOCKHOLM SYNDROME. This problem arises when the “hostages” join sides with the “kidnappers” because they start to believe the bullshit idea that “we are all in this together”.

    The Stockholm Syndrome is now called social justice, gun control, banning hate speech, sanctuary cities, racism, prison reform, free housing, equality, lifetime welfare, diversity, inner city programs and all kinds of free shit the Stockholm victims and government can give away with some false hope that they can keep the predator from getting hungry so they won’t eat the prey or lunch.

    This passive idea of appeasing the stalker has not turned out very well. The proof of this is seen all around the country as hundreds of major cities have become nothing but blood and horror filled combat zones. This is now getting worse because we now have an army of millions invading from the South who will fill the streets with gangs and more crime. The Stockholm Syndrome has now become the new American lifestyle because of the false belief that “we are all in this together”.

    Why would people welcome strangers who have come to rob and destroy their country. Who in their right minds would support sending truck loads of free shit into crime infested ghettos filled with drunks, bums, killers, drug addicts, whores, street gangs and leeches. When will these stupid pencil neck geeks wake up and say “enough is enough”.

    I like how you think.

    Likewise, focused on career and family during my life, I was aware of the growing problems but not the magnitute until I traveled briefly within the continental US.

    It was then I realized that it didn’t matter what large city you were in, they were almost identical. There was a large, viable segment coupled to a smaller, highly dangerous section. While city fathers like to speak of them as one, they are policed and treated completely different.

    Locals know where not to go and what time you should vacate certain areas. Then the animals come out to feed.

    Oh sure, there’s always some accidental interactions and the Eloi tax gets paid occasionally but in general, if everyone keeps to themselves, a ‘normal’ day to day life is achieved.

    I recognized that we are little more than a live-action science experiment. A jar full of spiders that someone shakes occasionally to ‘see what happens’.

    It was then I stopped watching the other spiders so closely and began to observe who would come along to shake my jar.

    We are not feared, and without fear there is no respect or consideration.

    That must change, and quickly.

    , @Mary White
    My woke moment was being hounded & harassed by black supervisors at a civil service job. It was 90% black women with minimal education who did minimal work. They did not want a white person to be in the job- they did not want me to succeed-I was screamed and yelled at on a daily basis- they lied about me claiming that I couldn’t do basic math. The worse I was treated black co workers would do the same. I lost a decent paying job. I learned a lot from this - as soon as I see any group or organization becoming more black than any other race I no longer participate.
    The illegal aliens working there had more rights than me.
    What did I learn from this? I no longer vote Democrat and I keep away from blacks. The brainwashing from my liberal college to help blacks or non whites has come undone. I never realized that blacks as a group could be this vicious and malicious- well they are.

    , @ShermanFan
    They way to stop it is quite simple, not racist, or even discriminatory.

    Constitutional carry.
    If you shoot an innocent, you face the penalties, you shoot and kill a criminal in the commission of a violent crime, you are immune from civil prosecution and you get one years refund of state income tax. That’s right, you kill a thug who kicks down your door, we give you your tax payment from the prior year BACK and the family cannot sue you.

    If you are a criminal and you commit a violent crime, you and 3 degrees of familial separation are barred from welfare and aid benefits. From you to your grandkids, you to your 2nd cousins, niece and nephew’s kids, zip, nothing, nada. Get a job because you robbed someone at knife point.

    "Perhaps if we allowed EBT card holders a free no background check gun a month with free box of ammo this problem would sort itself out faster."

    Nope, they have plenty of guns and ammo, but no marksmanship skills. In my sh!thole city, their specialty is car-to-car gunfights, like the one you see in the 1931 Paul Muni "Scarface" movie. As in the movie, they can't hit anything they're aiming at. And I think they _know_ that they can't hit the target. They simply enjoy shooting at each other, with no other particular goal in mind. It's their version of fireworks, like the celebratory gunfire we see in some Middle Eastern cultures.

    The most effective thug gunfire so far expended in my sh!thole happened two years ago. A thug invited three of his thug friends on a ride in a thug "party bus." During the party, he produced an AK-47, and annihilated his three "friends." Fish in a barrel. He jumped out and ran, and was at large for quite some time, since "The Community" sheltered him. Snitches get stitches.

    There is a solution to this problem, but it is unspeakable, and in today's America, impossible.
  8. If the cost of homicides is, as the article claims, between 10 and 19 million dollars each, it is only because the extreme, and oftentimes unnecessary, measures they employ to establish guilt beyond a reasonable (or unreasonable) doubt. I’m certainly in favor of doing whatever it takes to determine guilt or innocence, when guilt is in question. But, when someone has been captured on surveillance footage, observed by hundreds of witnesses, and caught holding the smoking gun, there is no need for a team of investigators, multiple forensic studies, lengthy court proceedings, and a ridiculous presumption of innocence. Just over a century a go, under the same Constitution, the problem of mass shooters and violent gang members would have been solved the day after they committed their crimes by hanging. Based on a preponderance of overwhelming evidence, there wouldn’t have been any need for a prolonged trial. But, the CRIMINAL justice system has to justify its inflated budget. The cycle of crime must continue to escalate, the procedures must be increasingly complex, and the reasoning “progressively” more convoluted.

  12. Extraordinary violence and aggression is not just confined to black people from Africa. Its seems to affect all manner of fauna. Steve Sailer suggests this could be because man and animals have interacted over a much longer time span than elsewhere and thus animals are wary of humans. Thus the African elephant, Zebra, buffalo etc were never domesticated whereas people ride horses, elephants and buffalo elsewhere. But I think there is something else going on. There are reptiles and even insects who, in their African versions are also more aggressive. The ‘African’ honeybee is famously aggressive and useless to beekeepers as a result. The African Rock Python is also too vicious to be kept as a ‘pet’ as compared to the more easily handled Burmese version. While poisonous snakes everywhere will bite, African vipers are notoriously aggressive. The black mamba will pursue a man or animal who disturbs it not just rattle or reveal its presence to ward off enemies. Obviously the snake cannot eat a man or large mammal but it will bite it nonetheless because it is African and mean. While a large alligator will, on occasion kill a person ( there have been about 25 reported cases in Florida since 1950) the Nile crocodile kills people routinely and in large numbers. The hippopotamus is known as one of the most dangerous animals in Africa even though humans pose no threat to it. African rhinos attack Landrovers filled with tourists on photo safaris which does not seem to happen in Asia where the beasts have just as much reason to fear humans.

    If nature is red in tooth and claw everywhere, in Africa ( and America’s ghettos) it goes beyond being a means to acquire food but an ‘attitude’ where being violent and mean is how animals interact with one another.

    Remember the ‘Pulse’ homosexual nightclub shooting? Well, it seems the female doctor who claimed to have remove 77 bullets from 32 victims and is currently trying to build a political career off of it was finally called out on her bullshit.

    Turns out she didn’t remove any bullets from anybody. In fact, it seems that she may not even be a doctor at all. She just ‘made the whole thing up’.

    My question is, how did this go on for this long without some intervention? At the first press conference, wasn’t the actual emergency room doctor like, “who’s this bitch?”

    How could an obvious fraud finagle her way into this position without considerable help and deliberate ‘missed clues’.

    Now it will cause everyone to rethink the shooting as a false flag, which it very well may have been.

    Remember, this was an active criminal investigation. Police involved. Media focused mass shooting.

    Watching old American movie dramas, say 1930s-1960s, I see white behavioral norms that remind me of today's thug culture. One is the drive-bys and car-to-car shooting which is so often depicted in gangster movies. Another is the apparently acceptable violent response to a mere insult, seen in all genres, but often in Westerns.

    Nope, they have plenty of guns and ammo, but no marksmanship skills. In my sh!thole city, their specialty is car-to-car gunfights, like the one you see in the 1931 Paul Muni "Scarface" movie. As in the movie, they can't hit anything they're aiming at. And I think they _know_ that they can't hit the target. They simply enjoy shooting at each other, with no other particular goal in mind. It's their version of fireworks, like the celebratory gunfire we see in some Middle Eastern cultures.

    The most effective thug gunfire so far expended in my sh!thole happened two years ago. A thug invited three of his thug friends on a ride in a thug "party bus." During the party, he produced an AK-47, and annihilated his three "friends." Fish in a barrel. He jumped out and ran, and was at large for quite some time, since "The Community" sheltered him. Snitches get stitches.

    There is a solution to this problem, but it is unspeakable, and in today's America, impossible.

    Watching old American movie dramas, say 1930s-1960s, I see white behavioral norms that remind me of today’s thug culture. One is the drive-bys and car-to-car shooting which is so often depicted in gangster movies. Another is the apparently acceptable violent response to a mere insult, seen in all genres, but often in Westerns.

    What you are describing is the evolution of culture.
    Whites evolved from an "Honor Culture" -- wherein retribution was visited directly upon the accused by the aggrieved -- to a "Dignity Culture" (grievances addressed through a system of established courts and written laws).
    Unfortunately, the next evolution appears to be "Victimhood Culture". This system of socially-aware jurisprudence dictates that the plaintiff with the the most "likes" and "retweets" in the court of public opinion, can claim victory. Regardless of the rule of law.

    New Baltimore deputy police commissioner robbed at gunpoint near Patterson Park

    One of Baltimore’s newest deputy police commissioners and his wife were robbed at gunpoint Friday night near Patterson Park, police said.

    Deputy Commissioner Daniel Murphy and his wife were approached around 9 p.m. by four men in a large white SUV at the 2200 block of East Pratt Street, police said in a statement. Two approximately 18-year-old men got out of the SUV and approached the couple. The men announced it was a robbery, showed a gun and fled with a wallet, a purse, some cash and multiple cell phones, the press release said.

    No one was injured.

    Murphy was one of the first top deputies hired earlier this year by Commissioner Michael Harrison, and the two men worked together in the New Orleans police department. In New Orleans, Murphy was the deputy superintendent of compliance for its consent decree, and was tapped by Harrison to oversee the Baltimore Police Department’s compliance with its own, similar federal consent decree.

    In an April interview with the Sun, Murphy talked about the similarities between the two cities, and the challenges.

    “I think the challenges are very similar” in Baltimore and New Orleans, Murphy said. “Obviously, every community, every police department is unique, but the success we had in New Orleans is directly transferable to here and we will modify it as necessary.”

    Southeast District detectives are heading the investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call detectives at 410-396-2422.

    Completely off topic but I just ran across this article while surfing.

    Remember the ‘Pulse’ homosexual nightclub shooting? Well, it seems the female doctor who claimed to have remove 77 bullets from 32 victims and is currently trying to build a political career off of it was finally called out on her bullshit.

    Turns out she didn’t remove any bullets from anybody. In fact, it seems that she may not even be a doctor at all. She just ‘made the whole thing up’.

    Not shitting you.

    https://www.mynews13.com/fl/orlando/news/2019/07/19/failed-candidate-lied-about-treating-pulse-victims-as-doctor

    My question is, how did this go on for this long without some intervention? At the first press conference, wasn’t the actual emergency room doctor like, “who’s this bitch?”

    How could an obvious fraud finagle her way into this position without considerable help and deliberate ‘missed clues’.

    Now it will cause everyone to rethink the shooting as a false flag, which it very well may have been.

    Remember, this was an active criminal investigation. Police involved. Media focused mass shooting.

    No one noticed the doctor was a fraud?

    True dat. Unfortunately Blacks refuse to support the underlying mandate of Dignity Culture, which means observing the custom of ceding unto law enforcement a monopoly on violence.

    Nice thought, Enchie, but really, what court and written laws and law enforcement will address the daily situation repeated throughout every hood in the U.S? Most commonly, when a Black hears that the cousin of the guy across the street heard from one of his boys that the next guy over on the block heard someone call said Black a punk? Now he's been dissed, backing down is like pissing blood, he now has to go shoot someone to make it 'right', even if it's the offender's sister, or a BBQ or a funeral. These folks are feral, no law applies to them.

    The only law that counts to the unarmed in Baltimore going back to the early 90s is that of self-preservation. Believe you me, the White lawyers and stock brokers on Charles Street are gone from the streets long before sundown. This White Deputy Commish and his wife forgot the rules. The monopoly on violence is no monopoly and really extends to three groups, police, Blacks and Hispanics. Mostly to Blacks and Hispanics. In due time, those White brokers and lawyers will leave Baltimore to the feral. THAT train is never late. People with options simply move. Even the Orioles and Ravens.

    Extraordinary violence and aggression is not just confined to black people from Africa. Its seems to affect all manner of fauna. Steve Sailer suggests this could be because man and animals have interacted over a much longer time span than elsewhere and thus animals are wary of humans. Thus the African elephant, Zebra, buffalo etc were never domesticated whereas people ride horses, elephants and buffalo elsewhere. But I think there is something else going on. There are reptiles and even insects who, in their African versions are also more aggressive. The 'African' honeybee is famously aggressive and useless to beekeepers as a result. The African Rock Python is also too vicious to be kept as a 'pet' as compared to the more easily handled Burmese version. While poisonous snakes everywhere will bite, African vipers are notoriously aggressive. The black mamba will pursue a man or animal who disturbs it not just rattle or reveal its presence to ward off enemies. Obviously the snake cannot eat a man or large mammal but it will bite it nonetheless because it is African and mean. While a large alligator will, on occasion kill a person ( there have been about 25 reported cases in Florida since 1950) the Nile crocodile kills people routinely and in large numbers. The hippopotamus is known as one of the most dangerous animals in Africa even though humans pose no threat to it. African rhinos attack Landrovers filled with tourists on photo safaris which does not seem to happen in Asia where the beasts have just as much reason to fear humans.


    If nature is red in tooth and claw everywhere, in Africa ( and America's ghettos) it goes beyond being a means to acquire food but an 'attitude' where being violent and mean is how animals interact with one another.

  43. Some years ago there was talk about starting a “third party”. I thought it was a great idea. Rather than two groups of crooks “running for office” we could now have three groups of crooks. Looking around at the new mind set taking place in America I think a third party would be very successful. It could be called the VICTIM PARTY. Rather than a small group of losers called “the squad” we could have a much larger bunch of misfits called “the platoon”.

    During their nation wide speeches about their personal misery they would garner masses of followers and voters willing to support them and thus find some kind of cruel reward for their own miserable lives. With a large enough gang of fellow travelers some TV network could start a nightly “news show” called the “Bitch and Moan Hour”. Every night a new group of “lost souls” could bitch and whine about how the world is mistreating them. With the right kind of “praise of suffering” a mass movement could be started where millions of complainers could stand in the national spotlight and share their morbid and miserable lives. To glorify suffering will then finally become the new American lifestyle.

    What are needed now are for some new cult leaders to step forward and start a Temple of Suffering so that many people can share their agony in a more personal friendly and family environment. They can hug each other as they cry their hearts out. The universities can now have special classes called “victim studies”. With the right kind of con men leading this movement some really big money could be made. They could hire tele-marketers from India to call for donations to help support the “victim and suffering party”.

    Don’t get me wrong. I am not some kind of bigot. I truly believe that sex perverts, people of color and third world invaders should also take pride in their suffering. With international corporate donations America could have “victim pride parades”. The suffering masses should be allowed to express their pain. Of all the victims my favorites were the fat white women who protested Donald Trump by marching in Washington wearing giant vagina costumes and caring signs about their sex organs. I can understand their sense of logic. If the drunk woman had won the election I might have marched in Washington wearing my giant foam rubber seven foot penis costume.

    The NRA knows the CDC to be a bunch of leftists as they dropped previous studies that showed guns were used 1 to1 1/2 million times per year to ward off criminals and protect the lawabiding. They can’t trust the CDC.

    The NRA was also the first group to point out the truth about “gun violence,” when Wayne Lapierre sad Chicago doesn’t have a gun problem, but a gang problem.

    National Philharmonic Closes Its Curtains Due To Financial Woes

    BETHESDA, MD — The National Philharmonic, an esteemed orchestra based out of North Bethesda’s Music Center at Strathmore, is closing its curtains. The impending — and rather abrupt — closure is estimated to cost more than 130 union musicians and staff their jobs.
    “It is with great sadness that I must report that the National Philharmonic has to shut its doors,” National Philharmonic President Leanne Ferfolia said in a media release Tuesday. “We have been an important and integral part of the community and a service to Montgomery County residents, especially the thousands of young people who were able to attend our concerts with their families for free.”

    I don't mean to torque from our host's story...but this item from Loren is worth every Kersey reader's attention.

    I urge everyone to click on the link, read it, then go to the page describing Nancy Navarro, the Montgomery County Council president (salary of over $150,000) who in the Patch.com piece sounds all too happy to destroy an orchestra in the name of "equity" and "sustainability":

    https://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/Navarro/about.html

    Here's the Montgomery County Council members who denied the orchestra $150,000 to keep it going:

    https://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/council/
    https://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/COUNCIL/about/index.html

    This is related to their duties as local Robin Hoods under a direct county grant program.

    The County Council's responsibilities are specified by the County Charter and state law. Some of the Council's principal responsibilities are:

    --Appropriates money to fund the capital and operating budgets and sets the local property tax rate and other local taxes.
    --Approves all land use plans including the General Plan, area master plans, and sector plans prepared by the Planning Board.
    --Acts on zoning changes.
    [snip]
    --Sets the tax rates required to fund the County budgets.
     

    So they tax.

    And they spend.

    Here's a list of the grants covered by the $14.5m they are spending in 2020 via direct county grants:
    https://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/COUNCIL/Resources/Files/council_grants/2020/FY20CommunityGrants.pdf

    Now let's take a look at her "equity" grants that excluded the Philharmonic:

    --$100,000 to the Jewish Day School of Greater Washington Inc.,
    --$195,000 to the Greater Washington Jewish Coalition (dating abuse programs and "clinical and legal services" [therapists and lawyers] re: abuse),
    --another quarter million for other Jewish/Hebrew programs,
    --millions for Latino programs,
    --hundreds of thousands for Muslim and Asian programs,
    --about $600,000 to the Alinskyite Catholic Charities that provide services (including (((lawyers))) ) for illegals,
    --hundreds and hundreds of thousands in food aid,
    --hundreds of thousands for "enhancing access to health services,"
    --astonishing amounts to reward homelessness...or anyway careers in wrangling the homeless.

    For that is what we're seeing here, Loren. Dolt-wrangling produces all sorts of jobs for social work majors, social studies, studies studies majors, and the like.

    Money is literally taken from the functional and productive to reward and institutionalize victimhood and racial grievance...

    ...of the sort the Nancy Navarros of the world are well-placed to champion and extend. In the name of "progressivism." But it's really make-work for them. Affirmative action careers in the rawest sense.

    She hit the big time, being one of those elected to use their publicly elected positions, and salaries of $139,000 per year (plus, we guess, benefits), to literally destroy white culture using white families' tax dollars (Montco is about 62% white)...and virtue-preen as they do so.

    It apparently works, for looking at Nancy Navarro--who as the president of the council makes over $155,000 a year (plus, we guess, benefits)--it's hard to imagine what kind of job she could have gotten with a bachelor's degree in psychology, one of the lowest IQ/lowest SAT majors, without that racial grievance schtik and Obama's leftist Chicago and DC mafia pushing her forward.

    Remember: "charity"--both public and private--is a major driver of the leftist/prog/bolsh agenda. Without seizing your, my, and everyone's wages, and literally taking opportunities away from our children and forcing us to support other men's offspring, this political agenda would go nowhere. And we aren't just cucked by the left, but as well by the GOPe.

    They admit that blacks and browns are killing each other, but I noticed that whites (tax payers) are footing the bill to patch them up. Healthcare costs are going up because negroes don't pay for the emergency room visits. They get that free like they ride the metros for free. Blacks and Browns are just parasites to the white population, but white women keep voting the same stupid way!

    YES! Those white, suburban women are always voting to virtue signal that they have such supposed enormous hearts. Many are only too happy to cancel out the votes of their husbands with no thought to the future of their children. They are the reason we got Obama TWICE! Once is a correctable mistake, twice signifies serious problems in thought processes.

    Some years ago there was talk about starting a "third party". I thought it was a great idea. Rather than two groups of crooks "running for office" we could now have three groups of crooks. Looking around at the new mind set taking place in America I think a third party would be very successful. It could be called the VICTIM PARTY. Rather than a small group of losers called "the squad" we could have a much larger bunch of misfits called "the platoon".

    During their nation wide speeches about their personal misery they would garner masses of followers and voters willing to support them and thus find some kind of cruel reward for their own miserable lives. With a large enough gang of fellow travelers some TV network could start a nightly "news show" called the "Bitch and Moan Hour". Every night a new group of "lost souls" could bitch and whine about how the world is mistreating them. With the right kind of "praise of suffering" a mass movement could be started where millions of complainers could stand in the national spotlight and share their morbid and miserable lives. To glorify suffering will then finally become the new American lifestyle.

    What are needed now are for some new cult leaders to step forward and start a Temple of Suffering so that many people can share their agony in a more personal friendly and family environment. They can hug each other as they cry their hearts out. The universities can now have special classes called "victim studies". With the right kind of con men leading this movement some really big money could be made. They could hire tele-marketers from India to call for donations to help support the "victim and suffering party".

    Don't get me wrong. I am not some kind of bigot. I truly believe that sex perverts, people of color and third world invaders should also take pride in their suffering. With international corporate donations America could have "victim pride parades". The suffering masses should be allowed to express their pain. Of all the victims my favorites were the fat white women who protested Donald Trump by marching in Washington wearing giant vagina costumes and caring signs about their sex organs. I can understand their sense of logic. If the drunk woman had won the election I might have marched in Washington wearing my giant foam rubber seven foot penis costume.

    Ahhahaha! The TV show sounds good. Anyone else old enough to remember “Queen for a Day” way back in the ’50s? The women would go on the show and tell their tales of woe with the audience voting for the most tear jerking story winning cash, washers, driers, cars, coffee machines, etc. Of course, after a few years it was all found to be fake stories. Good lesson in how profitable victimhood could be though. Learned a lot by age 8.

    The year of my final stage of "waking up" was about 1990. I had fallen asleep for about 15 years because I had been running a successful business and was also planning my escape from New York.

    I was shocked to find out that what I thought was a local New York City problem (crime) had now become a nation wide plague. My days of being a part time sleep walker were over. We all know how much worse crime has become in the last thirty years. In the last few years or so I have noticed that America is suffering from a massive disease called the STOCKHOLM SYNDROME. This problem arises when the "hostages" join sides with the "kidnappers" because they start to believe the bullshit idea that "we are all in this together".

    The Stockholm Syndrome is now called social justice, gun control, banning hate speech, sanctuary cities, racism, prison reform, free housing, equality, lifetime welfare, diversity, inner city programs and all kinds of free shit the Stockholm victims and government can give away with some false hope that they can keep the predator from getting hungry so they won't eat the prey or lunch.

    This passive idea of appeasing the stalker has not turned out very well. The proof of this is seen all around the country as hundreds of major cities have become nothing but blood and horror filled combat zones. This is now getting worse because we now have an army of millions invading from the South who will fill the streets with gangs and more crime. The Stockholm Syndrome has now become the new American lifestyle because of the false belief that "we are all in this together".

    Why would people welcome strangers who have come to rob and destroy their country. Who in their right minds would support sending truck loads of free shit into crime infested ghettos filled with drunks, bums, killers, drug addicts, whores, street gangs and leeches. When will these stupid pencil neck geeks wake up and say "enough is enough".

    Why would people welcome strangers who have come to rob and destroy their country. Who in their right minds would support sending truck loads of free shit into crime infested ghettos filled with drunks, bums, killers, drug addicts, whores, street gangs and leeches.

    Globalists, Judeo-marxists, law enforcement, the Prison Industrial Complex, the legal system, shitlibs hiding in academia, all government agencies whose existence is based on public dependency, and democrats. (Retardicans also by default.)

    Whites are ignored as a voting bloc.

    So, Elizabeth Warren has called for a "public health approach" to gun violence. I couldn't agree more. Have the CDC declare black males a national health hazard, just like you would a disease, and have them quarantined. Problem solved.

    This is disgusting. Kathy Zhu, Miss Michigan, apparently a very fine person, was stripped of her title and accused of "having bad character".

    That is because she correctly stated that it is blacks who are killing other blacks and that she would not try on a hijab.

    She is a conservative and supports our president.

    National Philharmonic Closes Its Curtains Due To Financial Woes

    BETHESDA, MD — The National Philharmonic, an esteemed orchestra based out of North Bethesda's Music Center at Strathmore, is closing its curtains. The impending — and rather abrupt — closure is estimated to cost more than 130 union musicians and staff their jobs.
    "It is with great sadness that I must report that the National Philharmonic has to shut its doors," National Philharmonic President Leanne Ferfolia said in a media release Tuesday. "We have been an important and integral part of the community and a service to Montgomery County residents, especially the thousands of young people who were able to attend our concerts with their families for free."

    If the cost of homicides is, as the article claims, between 10 and 19 million dollars each, it is only because the extreme, and oftentimes unnecessary, measures they employ to establish guilt beyond a reasonable (or unreasonable) doubt. I'm certainly in favor of doing whatever it takes to determine guilt or innocence, when guilt is in question. But, when someone has been captured on surveillance footage, observed by hundreds of witnesses, and caught holding the smoking gun, there is no need for a team of investigators, multiple forensic studies, lengthy court proceedings, and a ridiculous presumption of innocence. Just over a century a go, under the same Constitution, the problem of mass shooters and violent gang members would have been solved the day after they committed their crimes by hanging. Based on a preponderance of overwhelming evidence, there wouldn't have been any need for a prolonged trial. But, the CRIMINAL justice system has to justify its inflated budget. The cycle of crime must continue to escalate, the procedures must be increasingly complex, and the reasoning "progressively" more convoluted.

    it’s all bullshit. Everyone of those detectives judges and da’s are still getting paid whether they are prosecuting a shooting or sitting on their ass. Juries are paid 5 bucks which is why the old adage they are made up of people too stupid to get out of it

  57. @gp
    'Today we know enough to provide a strong sense of how to tackle this terrible problem."

    We know how to tackle the problem? How?!? In my city, the shooting is incessant and unstoppable. Not to mention the home invasions, robberies and carjackings. Our citizens and leaders regard thug crime as a permanent feature of our lives, like the weather. I can think of only one way to stop it, but it is unspeakable.

    They way to stop it is quite simple, not racist, or even discriminatory.

    Constitutional carry.
    If you shoot an innocent, you face the penalties, you shoot and kill a criminal in the commission of a violent crime, you are immune from civil prosecution and you get one years refund of state income tax. That’s right, you kill a thug who kicks down your door, we give you your tax payment from the prior year BACK and the family cannot sue you.

    If you are a criminal and you commit a violent crime, you and 3 degrees of familial separation are barred from welfare and aid benefits. From you to your grandkids, you to your 2nd cousins, niece and nephew’s kids, zip, nothing, nada. Get a job because you robbed someone at knife point.

    Some places have it worse than others, of course. But none are immune. Massachusetts may have the lowest gun death rate in the nation, but Boston still saw a rash of 17 shootings in five days over the Fourth of July weekend.
     
    Massachusetts in general, and Boston in particular, have a high concentration of good hospitals and an almost tolerable quantity of negroes.

    Montgomery County is only 62% "white" when you lump the Latinos and other mystery meat in. It's actually 43.4% "White alone, not Hispanic or Latino, (according to the US Census Quickfacts site). It's 19.9% black and 19.9% Latino. And, 15.6% Asian. My guess is that this is as of the 2010 Census, so the way the Latinos have been flooding in, it's probably vastly different now.

    But yeah, I'm not too surprised that, once someone like Nancy Navarros got into power, they'd start playing "Robin Hood" to steal from the producers, and give to the victim class.

And we aren't just cucked by the left, but as well by the GOPe.

    Montgomery County is only 62% “white” when you lump the Latinos and other mystery meat in. It’s actually 43.4% “White alone, not Hispanic or Latino, (according to the US Census Quickfacts site). It’s 19.9% black and 19.9% Latino. And, 15.6% Asian. My guess is that this is as of the 2010 Census, so the way the Latinos have been flooding in, it’s probably vastly different now.

    But yeah, I’m not too surprised that, once someone like Nancy Navarros got into power, they’d start playing “Robin Hood” to steal from the producers, and give to the victim class.

    What you are describing is the evolution of culture.
    Whites evolved from an "Honor Culture" -- wherein retribution was visited directly upon the accused by the aggrieved -- to a "Dignity Culture" (grievances addressed through a system of established courts and written laws).
    Unfortunately, the next evolution appears to be "Victimhood Culture". This system of socially-aware jurisprudence dictates that the plaintiff with the the most "likes" and "retweets" in the court of public opinion, can claim victory. Regardless of the rule of law.

    Whites evolved from an “Honor Culture” — wherein retribution was visited directly upon the accused by the aggrieved — to a “Dignity Culture” (grievances addressed through a system of established courts and written laws).

    True dat. Unfortunately Blacks refuse to support the underlying mandate of Dignity Culture, which means observing the custom of ceding unto law enforcement a monopoly on violence.

    Nice thought, Enchie, but really, what court and written laws and law enforcement will address the daily situation repeated throughout every hood in the U.S? Most commonly, when a Black hears that the cousin of the guy across the street heard from one of his boys that the next guy over on the block heard someone call said Black a punk? Now he’s been dissed, backing down is like pissing blood, he now has to go shoot someone to make it ‘right’, even if it’s the offender’s sister, or a BBQ or a funeral. These folks are feral, no law applies to them.

    The only law that counts to the unarmed in Baltimore going back to the early 90s is that of self-preservation. Believe you me, the White lawyers and stock brokers on Charles Street are gone from the streets long before sundown. This White Deputy Commish and his wife forgot the rules. The monopoly on violence is no monopoly and really extends to three groups, police, Blacks and Hispanics. Mostly to Blacks and Hispanics. In due time, those White brokers and lawyers will leave Baltimore to the feral. THAT train is never late. People with options simply move. Even the Orioles and Ravens.

    The year of my final stage of "waking up" was about 1990. I had fallen asleep for about 15 years because I had been running a successful business and was also planning my escape from New York.

    I was shocked to find out that what I thought was a local New York City problem (crime) had now become a nation wide plague. My days of being a part time sleep walker were over. We all know how much worse crime has become in the last thirty years. In the last few years or so I have noticed that America is suffering from a massive disease called the STOCKHOLM SYNDROME. This problem arises when the "hostages" join sides with the "kidnappers" because they start to believe the bullshit idea that "we are all in this together".

    The Stockholm Syndrome is now called social justice, gun control, banning hate speech, sanctuary cities, racism, prison reform, free housing, equality, lifetime welfare, diversity, inner city programs and all kinds of free shit the Stockholm victims and government can give away with some false hope that they can keep the predator from getting hungry so they won't eat the prey or lunch.

    This passive idea of appeasing the stalker has not turned out very well. The proof of this is seen all around the country as hundreds of major cities have become nothing but blood and horror filled combat zones. This is now getting worse because we now have an army of millions invading from the South who will fill the streets with gangs and more crime. The Stockholm Syndrome has now become the new American lifestyle because of the false belief that "we are all in this together".

    Why would people welcome strangers who have come to rob and destroy their country. Who in their right minds would support sending truck loads of free shit into crime infested ghettos filled with drunks, bums, killers, drug addicts, whores, street gangs and leeches. When will these stupid pencil neck geeks wake up and say "enough is enough".

    My woke moment was being hounded & harassed by black supervisors at a civil service job. It was 90% black women with minimal education who did minimal work. They did not want a white person to be in the job- they did not want me to succeed-I was screamed and yelled at on a daily basis- they lied about me claiming that I couldn’t do basic math. The worse I was treated black co workers would do the same. I lost a decent paying job. I learned a lot from this – as soon as I see any group or organization becoming more black than any other race I no longer participate.
    The illegal aliens working there had more rights than me.
    What did I learn from this? I no longer vote Democrat and I keep away from blacks. The brainwashing from my liberal college to help blacks or non whites has come undone. I never realized that blacks as a group could be this vicious and malicious- well they are.

    I've witnessed this phenomenon first hand. The influx of black employees and their eventual rise into management leads to the 'celebration' of Juneteenth throughout the organization. The USA is being dismantled from the inside out one bureaucracy at a time. For every white forced out of a job a black family member is recruited to replace them. The resulting decline in productivity is of unimportance. Slowly & methodically this cold war takes place in plain sight but is verboden to dare admit.

    That suggests a heuristic:

    If an organization or department is loaded with AA hires, its functions are likely superfluous and it can be abolished.

    HR, grievance studies, government make-work... I can't think of any exceptions right now.

  66. This article is basically recycled in e very big city paper year after year.

    “Black and Brown youths are the main victims of Gun Violence.”

    They never admit black and brown youths are the main perpetrators of Gun Violence. It never changes.
