You’ll NEVER GUESS: a quick Google search as of 9PM tonight reveals NO (0) stories about whites/ conservatives Bracing For A Backlash after the New Zealand shootings, although such stories are universal after Muslim terrorist attacks—which are ludicrously more numerous, as the alleged shooter Brenton Tarrant argues in his manifesto. This Narrative manipulation is just a small part of what Chronicles’ Srdja Trifkovic accurately described as “today’s onslaught of massive Agitprop and self-hatred inducement from every screen and every printed page in every Western country.”[New Zealand Attacks: Repercussions and Perspective, March 15, 2019] But it’s not new. And that’s part of the problem.

Thus an American guy named Christopher Hasson is currently under arrest for plotting to shoot some people. His name is Hasson, a French name, rather than Hasan, like the Muslim guy who actually shot up Fort Hood. When Hasan did that, we heard about Islamophobia (he counselled returned soldiers whose tales of war against his co-religionists were supposed to have stressed him out)possibly driving him to it. (In fact, the shooting was a result of a lack of Islamophobia—Hasan’s superiors were afraid to challenge him).

When black guys shoot up a bunch of whites, we hear that racism (other peoples, not their own) has driven them to it. We didn’t hear anything like that about Hasson. What we heard instead is that he was inspired by President Trump.

For example, Eric Levitz reported in New York Magazinethat “MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough (whom Hasson allegedly planned to kill) said of Hasson, ‘Donald Trump fans the flames of hatred and many that are out there that support him are responding to it.’”[ Trump Should Stop Telling Hateful Lies That Racist Terrorists Believe, February 22, 2019]

David Horowitz wrote this in response to a black-on-white shooting in 2000:

You probably don’t remember the name “Ronald Taylor,” [right] and you probably think you have never heard of John Kroll or Joseph Healy or Emil Sanielevici. Why should you? The last three gentlemen were the white victims of a black killer, Ronald Taylor, in Wilkinsburg, Penn., just a couple of weeks ago. The story made the front pages for about a day. And then just as suddenly it fell off the nation’s radar screen.

However, I will bet you can identify Matthew Shepard, or James Byrd, or Buford Furrow or, for that matter, Tawana Brawley. These were the victims, the perpetrator and the phony victim of politically correct crimes in which all the actors assumed roles that confirmed the prejudices of our liberal elites.

Deafening Silence, by David Horowitz, JewishWorldReview, March 16, 2000

Ronald Taylor is a case (previously unknown to me) of what I call the Disgruntled Minority Massacre, where a member of a minority group slays a bunch of white people, usually coworkers, because he’s decided that they’re racist.

You haven’t heard of this omnipresent phenomenon, any more than you’ve heard of Immigrant Mass Murder Syndrome, because the Main Stream Media doesn’t want you to hear about it.

In the Omar Thornton case, Thornton, right, killed 8 whites, wounded two, and said it was because they were racist. (He’d been fired for stealing). Incredibly, and showing the depth of Cultural Marxist rot, the police actually went to the trouble of investigating the deceased to find out if they had used racial slurs before being murdered. In May of the following year, they were exonerated [No proof of racism at site of 2010 shooting rampage: police, by Zach Howard, Reuters, May 13, 2011]

In the case of Ronald Taylor, he was clearly committing a racially-motivated attack. Here’s what Horowitz said at the time:

Taylor, a resident of publicly subsidized housing, recently became incensed at maintenance workers trying to fix the door of his apartment. “You’re all white trash, racist pigs,” he exploded. “You’re dead.” He then went on a rampage that randomly killed Kroll, Healy, and Sanielevici, and critically wounded two others. When the FBI searched his apartment they found anti-Semitic, anti-Asian, anti-Italian, and anti-white hate literature.

Taylor’s crime did not confirm the nation’s most protected racial prejudices, and that is why his criminal acts have been pushed so quickly out of sight. We get no Time and Newsweek cover stories about Taylor, no network features about black racism, no White House press conferences to berate the nation, no Capitol Hill resolutions authored by liberal Democratic Reps. Barney Frank (Ma.) and Maxine Waters (Ca.) to condemn the outrage, and no calls for hate-crime legislation to specifically include endangered white males.

By the way, you don’t often see the phrase “anti-white hate literature”, but there’s a lot of it. I’m not talking about the SPLC, Tim Wise, and Noel Ignatiev—the black community has their own writers to produce this stuff. It’s either Afrocentric, Nation of Islam, or what the SPLC calls “Black Nationalist”.

More from Horowitz’s 2000 report:


Even more striking, perhaps, than this media blackout are comments that have been volunteered by the few black spokespeople who have actually acknowledged the racial dimension of the crime. For example, the Rev. Thelma C. Mitchell, pastor at the Wilkinsburg Baptist Church, told her congregation in a “healing” service: “You cannot run from violence in the United States because the United States was founded on violence. Why are we suddenly shocked, brothers and sisters? The whole concept of racism and prejudice and targeting people, this is not a new game. Although I in no way agree with the methods he used, I suspect Mr. Taylor really did reflect a growing frustration in this community because too many African-American young men cannot find a meaningful job.”

In other words, the white devil made him do it. [Links and citations added].

What makes this worse is that the Reverend Thelma was a black pastor preaching to mostly white congregation:

Far from being an extreme example, this kind of formulation functions as a mainstream excuse in the black community for the racial outrages committed by its members. Dr. Alvin Poussaint, [right] a Harvard professor and one of the media’s most quoted experts on the psychology of racism, is a case in point. Poussaint [Email him] managed to identify Taylor’s act as a case of “extreme racism.” But in an interview with the Washington Times on March 3, Poussaint also speculated, in effect, that the white devil must have made Taylor do it. He said that the shooter may have gained a “generalized hatred toward all whites” from his personal experiences. The Times reported: “He [Poussaint] wondered whether the suspect was ‘abused’ by a white authority figure, such as a boss or a police officer. ‘Or was he stopped for racial profiling,’ he asked.” [Racism considered key in shooting of 5 whites, The Washington Times, March 3, 2000]

In fact, according to Ronald Hampton, [left] executive director of the National Black Police Association in Washington D.C., only the white devil can be racist. Questioned about the killings, Hampton told the Times, “It’s impossible for blacks to practice racism on whites. Racism is the sum total of prejudice and power … and blacks don’t have power in our society.” Tell that to Taylor’s three dead victims.

Taylor was sentenced to death in November 2001 [Ronald Taylor gets death sentence, by Tom Barnes, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, November 12, 2001].

Of course Taylor [right, 2018 photograph] hasn’t been executed. All executions in Pennsylvania were put under a moratorium in 2015, in part due to the anti-death penalty activity of organizations like the NAACP, which opposes the execution of guilty murderers on account of “disparate impact”.[ Pennsylvania DAs take aim at Wolf’s death penalty moratorium by Mark Scolforo, Associated Press (WTAE), April 15, 2015]

The vlogger RamZ Paul has just described the Christchurch killings as “The Wages Of Multiculturalism.”

Equally, this tragedy can be described as the wages of Cultural Marxist Narrative control—ultimately, people will rebel against lies.

  1. Muslim terrorist attacks—which are ludicrously more numerous

    The Religion of Peace website maintains a comprehensive List of Islamic Terror Attacks. More information on the entry for 2019.02.26, the murder of 32 Nigerian Christians, is given here.

  3. US Muslims face backlash after Paris attacks

    Dave Collins, Associated Press

    Nov. 18, 2015, 7:03 AM 111

    HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Muslims around the U.S. are facing backlash following the deadly attacks in Paris, including vandalism to mosques and Islamic centers, hate-filled phone and online messages and threats of violence.

    “The picture is getting increasingly bleak,” said Ibrahim Hooper, a spokesman for the Washington, D.C.-based Council on American-Islamic Relations. “There’s been an accumulation of anti-Islamic rhetoric in our lives and that I think has triggered these overt acts of violence and vandalism.”

  4. KenH says:

    I’m glad Fulford brought up the cases of Omar Thornton and other black mass shooters and killers of innocent white people. In the Omar Thornton case the media predictably spun the narrative that Thornton was a reliable employee who was a victim of white ray-cism. But if memory serves he had stolen from the company on several occasions and was in the process of finally being terminated. A white employee would have been fired after the first incident, so if anything Thornton was the recipient of black skin privilege.

    Concerning the Christchurch incident, terror begets terror as the maxim goes, and it was only a matter of time before some white people decided to strike back at Muslims for the crimes and savagery they’ve periodically visited upon whites throughout the Western world. I’ve always said that if our governments refuse to act in the best interests of and protect its supermajority (for now) white populations by controlling the black population and preventing the entry of hostile and sometimes murderous racial aliens who were heretofore barred from entry then they won’t like what fills the resulting vacuum.

    Christchurch is only a small example of what could be coming in the near future unless we abruptly change course which our (((governments))) seem incapable and unwilling to do.

    Ironically, the shooter wanted a backlash against whites; that was the intention. That’s why he named PewDiePie. He’s a white YouTuber who’s hated by many jealous, bigoted progressives because he’s white. The shooter wanted the left to strike back at this person so normal people would see how racist they are. He wanted to cause conflict as a result. Ultimately, stupid (and evil) … but there was a logic to the madness.

    As an aside, I think advocating partition is more productive than white nationalism. The latter leads to stuff like this because supporters must engage in extreme actions to reverse the extraordinary tide of entropy running against them. It’s like if you promised people immortality if they could only solve all of the world’s greatest mathematical problems; obviously, the great majority couldn’t, so you’d have to expect lots of extreme actions by desperate people in response – cheating, threats, theft, violence, bribes, pleading, etc.

    Christchurch is only a small example of what shall be coming in the near future because our governments are unwilling to change the current course.

    Fixed that for you.

    Besides, what’s not to like?

    The sole purpose of the managerial class is to manage the masses. More violence within the community demands more….ahm…management…of that community. Or, to go back to true basics, more power and money for the managerial class.

    Kiwis will get a next dose of that rather soon. The removal of the “E” license is coming fast. The review of the rest of the gun licensing and ownership on top of it.
    The increase in surverillance shall get into overdrive. With more of thought control.

    Then, the next explosion of the pent up rage of the white majority.
    Then, the increase in control.

    Just watch what’s going to happen in New Zealand in the next couple of months. Like an “island laboratory” for how the current paradigm works.

    More power to the “management”. Less power to the “managed”.
    So simple.

    The question is whether the New Zealanders will allow their government to take further control because of this incident. It’s that NZ is a small country that is more easily controlled, but the plus to that is that if enough NZers stand up to the coming totalitarian push, they could guarantee their freedom for generations. I’m not sure if enough of them want to be free, the Aussies gave up their guns like sheep giving up their wool, but we’ll see.

    The double standard and hypocrisy in (((mainstream))) news coverage is not surprising. When Muslims commit a terror attack against whites in Western nations the coverage and talking points are as follows:

    1) Monotonously and dryly report the incident usually without noting the race or religion of the perp or the majority of his/their victims. Or, note the religion of the perp with neutral facial expressions without further comment.
    2) Endlessly lecture whites that the injustices and intolerance of their societies is what caused the Muslim to lash out in violence. They blame the white victims.
    3) Endlessly lecture whites that just because some Muslims do bad things doesn’t mean that all Muslims are bad and suspect and anyone who thinks otherwise is just a pea brained provincial. We need speech codes to punish such small minded white yokels.
    4) This is life in the big city. Get used to it.
    5) The Western world is changing so grow up and get used to it. Only a damn fool would think that a diverse and violent America, U.K., Germany, etc., is worse than the staid and stale whiteopias that those nations used to be.
    6) The religion of Islam or the Muslim masses cannot be blamed for the actions of a few.
    7) Blame the gun and other weapons used. Not the Muslim or negro killer(s).
    8) No pictures of the Muslim killer(s) are displayed.
    9) The story gets flushed down the memory hole after 24-48 hours.
    10) No Muslims or Democrats are forced to disavow the terrorists and Democrats and other left wing parties aren’t forced to explain why they continue to support destabilizing mass third world immigration.

    But when a white person commits an act of mass violence against Muslims or non-whites the talking points suddenly change:
    1) He’s automatically a white nationalist which is the most toxic ideology in world history. Even though the majority of white nationalists are law abiding and tax paying they are all still suspect and evil. No exceptions!!!!
    2) Cast aspersions on all white people, specifically white men, who aren’t left wing voting racial masochists and/or homosexuals.
    3) Force every Republican to disavow the white killer and any belief systems that aren’t stamped with the kosher seal of approval.
    4) Only increased Muslim and third world immigration can solve these problems.
    5) Gun control now! Hate speech laws now!
    6) Blame the white guy and his political beliefs. The gun or other weapons used are just inanimate object, silly.
    7) Pictures of the white killer are prominently displayed on all news shows.
    8) The story stays alive for maximum guilt tripping and political effect and to disparage and dehumanize all white political dissidents.
    9) Pro-white political dissidents get doxxed and deplatformed.

    The civilized world is in a war with Islam, and has been for years. It appears when the West wakes up it will be too late. They have already let the fox in the American Congressional Hen House. When its too late you’ll hear the wailing sounds of the Haji hoard and it won’t be pretty. The slogan “We will never forget September 11, 2001” is bullshit, we’ve already forgot.

    We’ll see shortly.

    My take: “E” license gone.”A”license revised.
    More importantly: state-imposed rituals. There was a “minute” silence yesterday.
    Even more importantly: Internet censorship.


    All that will definitely frighten an average Kiwi into further submission to The Agenda.
    And, the only important, will make around 5 %, not more, flip to the right. That’s all which matters.

    5 %. Five Kiwis, from 100, fully awake.

    …New Zealand is the Test Case for World Government

    A laboratory.
    Nothing more, nothing less.

    Problem with laboratories, sometimes a bad experiment causes a fire and burns the premise down. With the people doing the experiments.

    Interesting times.

  16. As the blog indicates, Major Husan was the terrorist who killed troops at Ft Hood in 2008. He was able to enter a building with a large number of troops assembled, none having weapons available He was shot and only wounded by a civilian police officer because Ft Hood no longer had military police in place because of cost-cutting measures. The killings took place in 2008, he received the death penalty but the review process started. Eleven years later and Major Hasan has practically disappeared from the news. I stated back then that the death penalty would not be carried out in my lifetime. I am ninety now and I wager he will still be alive if I reach one hundred.

  17. Fulford: “Why No Stories About Whites Fearing “Backlash” After NZ Shooting?”

    1. There actually are such stories, but only in dark corners of the internet like this one. Claims are legion that the shooting was a false flag, deliberately done or faked by people hostile to white interests, in hopes of provoking a backlash against whites. Indeed, Tarrant himself writes in his manifesto that he did it “To incite violence, retaliation and further divide between the European
    people and the invaders currently occupying European soil.”

    2. In mainstream outlets, there are no such stories probably for the same reason there are no stories in the Bible about what a rat bastard Jesus was, and how he richly deserved to be crucified. When there’s a narrative, in order for it to be coherent, you have to tell it from a certain point of view. Things that don’t fit the narrative must be left out. In the West, the dominant point of view is anti-racist and anti-white. Accordingly, whites can be perpetrators, but never depicted as innocent victims of non-white violence. Anything done to whites by non-whites is in some sense thought to be deserved. In the words of celebrated black poet Amiri Baraka: “…you cant steal nothin from a white man, he’s already stole it he owes you anything you want, even his life. ”

    Fulford: “Equally, this tragedy can be described as the wages of Cultural Marxist Narrative control—ultimately, people will rebel against lies.”

    There won’t be a rebellion because white people themselves control the narrative. The problem is cultural; the determination of whites to see non-whites as racial equals to themselves. It seems a paradox but it’s true: because it is anti-racist, white culture is itself anti-white.

  18. 22pp22 says:

    I actually live in NZ. It no longer feels like a free country. It feels threatening and creepy. The place has gone insane. They are talking about ten-year jail sentences for owning the manifesto. You can murder someone in NZ and not get a ten-year jail sentence. Jacinda Ardern is raising the temperature when she should be trying to calm things down. She could not have done a better job of making a bad situation worse. A semi-official secret police force has been set up with the Orwellian title ProjectLoveNZ. Twelve rules for life has already been banned by NZ’s biggest bookseller.
