Monday marks the 12th day since the horrifying and widely publicized news that a roving gang of Hawaiian-shirted white racist frat boys had set on fire a biracial young woman in Madison, Wisconsin. The Duchess of Sussex called Althea Bernstein to comfort her after this devastating assault.

And, yet systemic white supremacy is so all-encompassing in America in 2020 that in the dozen days since the June 24th atrocity, the authorities have not announced a single lead in tracking down this white death squad operating in the heartland, presumably because the shadowy but vast Boogaloo Boys organization has infiltrated all organs of law enforcement, local, state, and federal. (They wear Hawaiian Shirts under their blue uniforms. If you rip open a cop’s blue shirt, you’ll see the colorful garment beneath. Try it at your next Mostly Peaceful Protest and see what happens.)

Even more alarmingly, the news media have completely stopped talking about this enormity perpetrated on the body of a young woman just for being biracial. It’s almost as if journalists, deep down, racistly suspect that this Hate Crime of the Century was actually merely just another hate hoax of the week.

    Justified repost but speaking of racial atrocities BLM have killed an eight year old black girl and now the mayor of Atlanta wants them gone.
    –BLM did their standard illegal roadblock thing
    –black family car attempts to travel on a public thoroughfare and is attacked by anti-police pro-black idiots
    –black family car gets through
    –BLM decides to shoot at it with firearms

    Get Woke, Steve. It’s the Klan, that eternal enemy. As we can see in this scene from the Watchmen TV docudrama, they were in total control of the NYPD back in the ’30s. Note the use of the Sign of the Cyclops, the hand-to-forehead gesture that members use to identify themselves:

    The generation gap is the problem. The people who care about the statues are all old people!

    The median age of Fox News viewers is 65.

    According to Nielsen ratings, the median age of Fox’s audience was 66 in 2016. Following something of a youthful surge the following year, Adweek reported “good news” for Fox News early in 2018. Over the past year, the median age of the cable channel’s audience had dropped to 65. Looking at prime-time numbers alone, Fox viewers kicked back up to 66.

    Getting away from the median doesn’t change the picture much. More than half of the Fox News audience is older than 65. If you go by raw numbers, of the 3.3 million households taking in Sean Hannity’s show on a nightly basis in 2018, just south of 2 million would have been senior citizens.

    In semi-related news, the Manhattan DA is pressing false-reporting charges against Amy Cooper, the “Central Park Karen” who threatened to tell the police a tall tale about how menacing her birdwatching fellow park-goer was acting towards her.

    Of course all the rioters / looters / undocumented SoHo shoppers of a few weeks ago have seen all their state charges swiftly dropped.

    Amy is white while the birdwatcher, along with the undocumented shoppers, are black, so that’s all you really need to know right there.

    So much for “equal justice under law,” and all that.

    At least the Feds are pursuing serious charges against those Molotov-cocktail-throwing lawyers in Brooklyn. Thanks to President Trump and his men, at least some portion of our government is working semi-fairly.

  9. This, of course, did not happen the way she said.
    My guess is that there were cameras at the intersection where she says this happened.
    I’d also guess that she had her cell phone with her the whole time.
    Just based on a little common sense, the cops must know that this story is baloney, and they probably have ironclad electronic evidence confirming that.
    I hope there’s still enough integrity in law enforcement for them to announce that this was a hoax.
    Having her charged with a crime is probably too much to hope for.

    After police determined that the University of Virginia frathouse gangrape story was fiction, they referred to the lying little piece of trash who made the whole thing up to get attention as a “survivor” and never charged her with any crime.

    And I believe the scumbag known as Sabrina Rubin Erdely is still allowed to work.

    “Stupid is as stupid does.”

  15. What do you think the odds are that the Seattle I-5 car attack was a poorly executed hate hoax? “Crazy racist speeds through BLM protest!!!”

    1. The driver appeared to have gone to great lengths to access a closed freeway. Doubtful it was a simple mistake.

    2. The video that was shot from a distance seems to be well framed. Almost like someone was expecting an expensive car to come speeding through the protest rather than someone reacting to commotion occurring off in the distance.

    3. How quick was the social media response condemning the incident as a racist attack? Outrage prepared in advance.

    4. The driver’s social media appears to have been scrubbed. Did he have a history of supporting the cause?

    Yeah. In 1927, the Klan distributed a flier attacking the “Roman Catholic police of New York City”:

    The predication for the Klan to march, according to a flier passed around Jamaica beforehand, was that “Native-born Protestant Americans” were being “assaulted by Roman Catholic police of New York City.” “Liberty and Democracy have been trampled upon,” it continued, “when native-born Protestant Americans dare to organise to protect one flag, the American flag; one school, the public school; and one language, the English language.”

    Inasmuch as many “hate crime” stories include a boilerplate declaration that “hoaxes are extremely rare”, the media often discusses these hoax stories … by denying they exist.

    I think that’s why Steve is holding their feet to the fire on this one. The prestige media know it’s fake so they want to let it drop quietly so they can go back to doing their “extremely rare” bit.

    Marrying poorly–and the pool of women worth marrying has shrunk so dramatically that marrying poorly is the norm for guys now–is “normally” ridiculously painful and expensive for guys.

    Harry’s choice–given the wonderful gals available to him with careful screening–is mind numbingly embarrassing … but then it’s an embarrassing family. A closet full of useless Hawaiian shirts is the least of his problems.

    Talking about baloney, is anyone following City of Madison Mayor Conway-Rhodes after her public demand of the MPD for “transparency”?

    Seems a group is passing around a recall petition on the Mayor, and it is not the Right wingers doing this. I guess what happened is the Mayor had a password-protected private video thanking members of the MPD for doing a swell job protecting the City during the Troubles and empathizing with them for all of the guff they are taking, praising them for maintaining their professional demeanor in the face of a lot of provocation.

    Who knew that Herzonner had the back of the police? Turns out the video got leaked (transparency from the rank-and-file officers? Some leftie malcontent?), and the Mayor is pleading for public forgiveness that she didn’t somehow weave a shout out to Black Lives Matter in her praise of her police department.

    I was encouraged by this development because I didn’t know our newly elected Mayor had it in her. But they have to be praised in secret? I am not the Mayor, but I am not publicly praising the Madison Police, any police.

    The wikipedia editors are so on top of this stuff I am amazed.

    By 1801, Madison’s slave population at Montpelier was slightly over 100. During the 1820s and 1830s, Madison was forced to sell land and slaves, caused by debts. In 1836, at the time of Madison’s death, Madison owned 36 taxable slaves

    The guy worked for Door Dash. He may have had a delivery that needed to be made, so he had to get through somehow. His view was blocked by the vehicles the dumbass leftists placed across the highway. According to what I read, the protestors had been blocking that highway every night for the last two weeks.Well, there are people who need to use the highway, black lives or not. If I were on the jury, I’d refuse to convict the guy.

    I don’t blame him. He tried to avoid the mass of people he could see at midnight, and he wasn’t even going above the speed limit. If he was looking in the direction of the crowd, he might never have even seen the two women he hit. I’m certain he was trying to get past the main crowd as fast as possible before they blocked him and mobbed him. There’s video of his car being blocked and struck by protestors before he even entered the highway.

    You notice it didn’t occur to the protestors to protest on the sidewalk or in the daytime. They would have been more noticeable in the day, and they wouldn’t have gotten killed. The protestors were deliberately trying to be a pain in the butt.

    Did Prince Harry marry poorly? I think he may have gotten exactly what he was looking for. Maybe he just wanted to humiliate the Windsors and give himself an escape hatch from what must be a pretty grotesque situation in the British royal family.

    He probably knows he is not really a Windsor at all (just do a web search on Captain James Hewitt and Princess Diana) and he has probably been reminded of it in subtle ways his entire life. Or at least since his mother was driven out of the palace to take up a jet-setter life that soon got her mangled in a car wreck in the Pont Alma Tunnel.

    So now Harry is hanging out with his divorcee mulatto American wife and their son in Malibu, polishing their social media personas and doing PR work for Black Lives Matter. Whatever does dear old Dad and the stepmum Camilla think? Harry must be having a royal laugh about it.

    She wasn’t driven out of anywhere. She had handsome accommodations in Kensington Palace right next door to Princess Margaret and Prince Michael of Kent. She asked her brother if she could move back to Althorp (13,000 acres of grounds, 100,000 sq ft of floor space in the house) and got a sharp letter back from him saying he didn’t want her issues and the papparazzi following her invading the family home, and reminding her that he had three sisters and hadn’t heard from one of them in about a year.

    Harry seems to have missed where it says that the “careful screening” needs to take place before you get a woman up the duff, not after. Of course, why he bothered with that one in the first place is a mystery to me, but there you are.

    As for the embarrassment factor, the royals (with the exception of the Queen Mum, who was great) have spent the last three decades behaving so poorly that Donald Trump seems a quiet, dignified figure by comparison. Perhaps they might consider adopting Justin Trudeau to help lend them a bit of class?

    What wonderful gals available to him? He wasn’t going to marry an Oxbridge graduate. The only kind of British girl who would marry into that family are brain-dead lower aristocrats.

    William actually got lucky with Kate.

    I’m not saying he did a smart thing in marrying Sparkle, but I don’t blame him for looking outside his set.

    And it’s not Sparkle’s fault he hates England. He’s been grousing about England to the press since at least 2008. Google it.

    1. That the news media have it in for you, place wiretaps on your phone, send infiltrators into your home, and report your private conversations, is not a black mark on the royal family, but on the media.

    2. Examples of known and well-substantiated poor behavior among the Queen’s blood relations are circumscribed to (1) Princess Margaret’s retaliatory adulteries (40+ years ago), Prince Charles’ adultery (with one woman, while Princess Borderline-Personality-Disorder had three paramours), and Prince Andrew’s chumming about with Jeffrey Epstein.

    3. A number of people in the Queen’s family have married or kept company with the wrong person, but that speaks to their judgment much more than their morals. Wrong persons would be Lord Snowdon, Mark Phillips, Diana Spencer, and Sarah Ferguson.

    4. The Queen’s nephew and grandson are currently in divorce proceedings. In re couples with children, it’s the wife insisting on a divorce about 3/4 of the time (and usually for no very distinct or specific reason). If that’s the case here, I’m not seeing how it’s ‘poor behavior’ on their part.

    I am unaware of any armed Christian response, defense against these Antifa Communist attacks against churches and statues of Christian saints .

    The Church of Latter Day Sussies has been particularly weak.

    Mittens Romney has taken a knee and sided with BLM/Antifa

    Remember, the FBI joined the investigation as of June 27, so it might not be so easy to just memory-hole this incident.

    Yeah – notice how there are no 15 FBI agents sent to Madison to investigate. The establishment assesses which situations have highest likelihood of return on investment and act accordingly.

    STOP APOLOGIZING!!!! Everything this hostage says is untrue. What a grovelling coward.

    She sounds like she’d commit seppuku if they asked her to.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Struggle_session

    A struggle session was a form of public humiliation and torture that was used by the Communist Party of China (CPC) at various times in the Mao era, particularly years immediately before and after the establishment of the People’s Republic of China and during the Cultural Revolution. The aim of a struggle session was to shape public opinion and humiliate, persecute, or execute political rivals and those deemed class enemies.

  72. This story reminds me of Ralphie’s “an icicle fell and hit my eye” lie from A Christmas Story, to cover for breaking his glasses and nearly “putting his eye out” with his Red Ryder BB gun. This girl was doing something wrong, and she tried to cover for it with you know, whyte supreemacy, which is the new icicle.
