Remember the 2017 Manchester Arena bombing of an Ariana Grande concert by a UK Muslim that murdered 22 and wounded over 800? From The Guardian:

Security guard avoided Manchester Arena bomber ‘for fear of being called racist’

Kyle Lawler had a ‘bad feeling’ about Salman Abedi but ‘did not have anything to justify that’

PA Media

Tue 27 Oct 2020 18.02

A security guard had a “bad feeling” when he saw Manchester Arena suicide bomber Salman Abedi but did not approach him for fear of being branded a racist, a public inquiry has heard.

Kyle Lawler said he was stood 10 or 15ft away from Abedi, who had been reported to security by a member of the public who thought he looked “dodgy”.

The Showsec security guard, aged 18 at the time of the terror attack, told police in a statement read to the inquiry sitting in Manchester: “I felt unsure about what to do.

“It’s very difficult to define a terrorist. For all I knew he might well be an innocent Asian male. I did not want people to think I am stereotyping him because of his race.

“I was scared of being wrong and being branded a racist if I got it wrong and would have got into trouble. It made me hesitant.

“I wanted to get it right and not mess it up by overreacting or judging someone by their race.”

Abedi, 22, dressed all in black and carrying a large, bulky rucksack, was spotted and reported to security at 10.15pm on 22 May 2017.

… Around eight minutes before he detonated his device, Showsec steward Mohammed Ali Agha alerted Lawler to the report by a member of the public and both began observing Abedi.

… In his statement to police, Lawler said: “I just had a bad feeling about him but did not have anything to justify that.”

He said Abedi was “fidgety and sweating” and he said he panicked slightly and was “conflicted” because he thought something was wrong but could not put his finger on it, the inquiry heard.

Lawler said he attempted to use his radio to alert the security control room but claimed he could not get through due to radio traffic.

He then left the area and took up his position on a walkway bridge outside the City Room and made no further attempt to raise the alarm.

Lawler agreed he simply “gave up” trying to use the radio and just got on with his job.

This is a very similar story to the ignored story told by airline ticket agent Michael Tuohey in 2005 to Oprah Winfrey about how Mohammed Atta set off his Stereotypical Arab Terrorist warnings at dawn on 9/11/2001, but then he gave himself “a politically correct slap” and let Atta board. Heck, President George W. Bush campaigned in 2000 against airport workers stereotyping Arabs for Flying While Arab, but the anti-Bush media let Bush get away with it after Tuohey went on the Oprah show, because the War on Stereotyping was even more important than the War on Bush.

    Not in western countries. Euphemisms like "responsible AI" are being coined as we speak to describe AI that bakes wokeness right into the models (the software that "learns" based on the model's architecture and the input data it processes when it is trained, and which is then used to reason about previously un-encountered input data during inference). Training AI models is very expensive and typically done by Big Tech or on their cloud computing infrastructure. Inference (using a trained model in the real world) is much cheaper, but you need a trained model. Also, in academia, there's a ton of funding for AI research, and that funding attracts a huge influx of SJWs (i.e., diversity hires) and their ideological protection rackets to "enhance and protect" the discipline with their SJW prejudices.

    In western countries AI models trained to identify "terrorists" will not just ignore threats from individuals of favored phenotypes and who pose genuine threats. These same models will very soon actively label as "terrorists" law-abiding peaceful dissenters: people deemed "white supremacists", HBD types, immigration realists, or anyone who simply hasn't isn't on board with the civilization-destroying SJW agenda. The SJW slogan "prejudice in, prejudice out" works both ways. Truly neutral AI would be "reality in, reality out", but the SJWs will never allow that.

    Maybe machine learning will be able to recognize all the people that are white supremacists and loaded with white privilege so that it will relieve the burden on all the lefties and free them up to imagine other things.

  2. It reminds me of one of the terrorist attacks in Britain a few years back. While people in a pub are cowering in fear, one man expresses his frustration with Muslims and another chides him under his breath, insisting that it’s “not Muslims.” Even when facing death some whites will doggedly defend their tormentors.

  4. I was about to add that comparison to the 9/11 story, but of course, you got to it, with your great political memory. I’ll just add that this was a ticket agent at Boston Logan, as I recall.

    I wonder if this 18 y/o has any regrets about his hesitancy getting those 17 people killed. The Logan AA ticket agent relates his thought later on:

    Back to the young London security guard, sure, he was only 18 and didn’t have much perspective. This was his job though, and he would have made how ever many years he did this menial job all worth a whole lot if he had saved these 17 lives (and the many injuries that I’m sure went along with the deaths).

    Would he have gotten the praise he deserved? Nah, probably nothing. He did have more to lose, in a way, by calling out these “Asians” for being terrorists. “Hey, there are plenty of white terrorists too, you know, you racist limey!”

    What's rarely discussed is the wounds suffered by the survivors. A common terrorist tactic, perfected by the oh so put upon Palestinians, is to soak the homemade bomb shrapnel (nails, screws, etc.) in rat poison.

    Maybe the airport guy should have said something in 2001, but I am sure the English guy in 2017 knew that he could lose his job if wrong.

    Or the dude pulls the pin on his "bomb" when the underpaid security guard confronts him. People still die along with the remorseful security guard.

    Of course, that is if the recent Manchester bombing wasn't just another hoax run by the spooks.

    Manchester was the site of a IRA bombing in 1996. Useful for Urban Renewal and to benefit rich real estate developers at the time.

    As was the demolition of three WTC towers on Sept 11, 2001.

    As was the London Blitz, which targeted slums, instead of The City, or the Palace, or 10 Downing Street. Slums rebuilt as upscale high rent areas. Down in the underground all they heard was sirens and explosions.

    Just as a follow-up, we did vote early today. They didn’t want me coaching my wife right at the booth itself. She did good though. 15 minute line, masks required, but not really. I was so ready to sneeze like an M-80 right onto the floor, just for fun, but it wouldn’t come. This early system involves true pieces of paper, cards really, as the “machines” are only there to help the process. As we fed the cards into another (scanning) machine, that’s where I wondered where the shenanigans could start.

    We got both signs on the lawn now, for this last week (both barrels). I’m still taking them in at night. I’m pretty sure a driver who purposefully (even per the UPS guy behind him) swerved 4 ft. over to run over my kid’s frisbee in the street didn’t like the signs – sounds paranoid, by why else? These people are really full of hate.

    If he did confront the bomber and save a score of lives, the complaint of racism would still have been made. The best possible outcome would have been that the guard scared the already nervous bomber into not exploding.

    The bomber would have been dismissed with no inspection of his person or belongings. He would probably have recieved an official apology for the shocking racial abuse. The guard would be branded a racist and terminated with very limited hope for any future employment.

    Doing the right thing in this case was guaranteed to result in punishment. With those kind of incentives, why even bother having security at all?

  15. It’s true. But it’s a distraction from the real story.

    The Abedi family are expat Libyan Islamic radicals who were brought to the UK by MI6, in the hope that they would be useful when the time came to fight Col. Gaddafi. That time came, and the family returned to Libya. And then Salman Abedi decided he would rather kill infidels in Britain than in Libya, and he moved back to Britain.

    MI5 (domestic intelligence) were alerted multiple times to Salman Abedi’s activities, but did nothing – possibly because MI6 (foreign intelligence) told them “don’t worry about him, he’s one of ours”.

    The enquiry will supposedly consider how Abedi was radicalised, but the embarrassing answer is that he was “radical” before he even came to Britain – and their “radicalism” is the precise reason why the entire family was allowed to immigrate.

    The enquiry is not permitted to examine such matters because they are covered by “Public Interest Immunity Certificates”. And so instead they examine whether the minimum-wage staff manning the fire exits who saw Abedi made the right decisions a few minutes before the bombing.

    The British press have been useless, which suggests that the subject is covered by a DA-Notice – a “voluntary” agreement not to deviate from the official narrative.

  16. Well, this security guard, who asked some nice young ladies to wear masks and use hand sanitizer before entering a retail establishment, *was* a Karen. Don’t worry too much about him…the 27 wounds were only from a ‘small’ knife.

    The way I see it those who don’t go to college likely have higher levels of wealth than those that did. The debt is getting bigger and the number of jobs smaller.

    The marginal college attender is in a bad place (he mostly goes to a for-profit school and accumulates massive debt while failing to even graduate), but attending college is still generally good advice for people of above-average IQ and conscientiousness.

    As more people attend college, there's a negative-sum credentialism game where college loses some of its exclusive value but nonetheless becomes increasingly mandatory, as the pool of non-college grads drops further in ability and everyone starts demanding a Bachelor's for even semi-menial jobs.

    Yeah, a few people are too smart for college and still highly conscientious, but there will always be far, far more people who are too stupid + unconscientious for college. And at a first glance, an employer will assume you're in the latter category.

    If he did confront the bomber and save a score of lives, the complaint of racism would still have been made. The best possible outcome would have been that the guard scared the already nervous bomber into not exploding.

    The bomber would have been dismissed with no inspection of his person or belongings. He would probably have recieved an official apology for the shocking racial abuse. The guard would be branded a racist and terminated with very limited hope for any future employment.

    Doing the right thing in this case was guaranteed to result in punishment. With those kind of incentives, why even bother having security at all?

    Not in western countries. Euphemisms like “responsible AI” are being coined as we speak to describe AI that bakes wokeness right into the models (the software that “learns” based on the model’s architecture and the input data it processes when it is trained, and which is then used to reason about previously un-encountered input data during inference). Training AI models is very expensive and typically done by Big Tech or on their cloud computing infrastructure. Inference (using a trained model in the real world) is much cheaper, but you need a trained model. Also, in academia, there’s a ton of funding for AI research, and that funding attracts a huge influx of SJWs (i.e., diversity hires) and their ideological protection rackets to “enhance and protect” the discipline with their SJW prejudices.

    In western countries AI models trained to identify “terrorists” will not just ignore threats from individuals of favored phenotypes and who pose genuine threats. These same models will very soon actively label as “terrorists” law-abiding peaceful dissenters: people deemed “white supremacists”, HBD types, immigration realists, or anyone who simply hasn’t isn’t on board with the civilization-destroying SJW agenda. The SJW slogan “prejudice in, prejudice out” works both ways. Truly neutral AI would be “reality in, reality out”, but the SJWs will never allow that.

    Just as a follow-up, we did vote early today. They didn't want me coaching my wife right at the booth itself. She did good though. 15 minute line, masks required, but not really. I was so ready to sneeze like an M-80 right onto the floor, just for fun, but it wouldn't come. This early system involves true pieces of paper, cards really, as the "machines" are only there to help the process. As we fed the cards into another (scanning) machine, that's where I wondered where the shenanigans could start.

    We got both signs on the lawn now, for this last week (both barrels). I'm still taking them in at night. I'm pretty sure a driver who purposefully (even per the UPS guy behind him) swerved 4 ft. over to run over my kid's frisbee in the street didn't like the signs - sounds paranoid, by why else? These people are really full of hate.

    Kids are bombarded from an early age with well-intentioned messages that people are interchangeable widgets whose observable characteristics don’t matter.

Don’t think for a moment all the 22 dead and 800 wounded and their families wouldn’t have accused the security guard in question of being a racist if he did go ahead and do something about his gut-feelings. To be a suspected racist (which can literally mean anything so long as you are White) is worse than being the worst murderer/rapist in the world. It is better to keep the head down below the parapet and let our hyper-atomized, deracinated societies curdle and implode. There isn’t anything you can do to save whites. Eek out your own little spot where you can and try and get along. To do anything else is to be crushed by society.

    The marginal college attender is in a bad place (he mostly goes to a for-profit school and accumulates massive debt while failing to even graduate), but attending college is still generally good advice for people of above-average IQ and conscientiousness.

    As more people attend college, there’s a negative-sum credentialism game where college loses some of its exclusive value but nonetheless becomes increasingly mandatory, as the pool of non-college grads drops further in ability and everyone starts demanding a Bachelor’s for even semi-menial jobs.

    Yeah, a few people are too smart for college and still highly conscientious, but there will always be far, far more people who are too stupid + unconscientious for college. And at a first glance, an employer will assume you’re in the latter category.

    Not in western countries. Euphemisms like "responsible AI" are being coined as we speak to describe AI that bakes wokeness right into the models (the software that "learns" based on the model's architecture and the input data it processes when it is trained, and which is then used to reason about previously un-encountered input data during inference). Training AI models is very expensive and typically done by Big Tech or on their cloud computing infrastructure. Inference (using a trained model in the real world) is much cheaper, but you need a trained model. Also, in academia, there's a ton of funding for AI research, and that funding attracts a huge influx of SJWs (i.e., diversity hires) and their ideological protection rackets to "enhance and protect" the discipline with their SJW prejudices.

    In western countries AI models trained to identify "terrorists" will not just ignore threats from individuals of favored phenotypes and who pose genuine threats. These same models will very soon actively label as "terrorists" law-abiding peaceful dissenters: people deemed "white supremacists", HBD types, immigration realists, or anyone who simply hasn't isn't on board with the civilization-destroying SJW agenda. The SJW slogan "prejudice in, prejudice out" works both ways. Truly neutral AI would be "reality in, reality out", but the SJWs will never allow that.

    Sorry for posting on my own comment, but an example of what I am talking about is right here:

    How to make a chatbot that isn’t racist or sexist
    Tools like GPT-3 are stunningly good, but they feed on the cesspits of the internet. How can we make them safe for the public to actually use?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPT-3

    You can be sure that the definition of what is “racist” and “sexist” language is infinitely elastic, and that providing objective evidence is no defense (just ask Nobel laureate Dr. James D. Watson). And wouldn’t we all just love to find out where exactly Unz.com is ranked by our Big Tech commissars on their list of the “cesspits of the internet”?

    To the woke, people reading dissident content on Unz.com aren’t human beings evaluating the merits of contributors’ and commenters’ arguments and supporting evidence. No, we are “unsafe”, demonic creatures lurking in and “feeding” on the sh*t in the “cesspits”, and our language must be “fixed”. And Big Tech’s “Comité de salut public” must rig their highly influential AI language models accordingly to make their results “safe for the public”.

    I was about to add that comparison to the 9/11 story, but of course, you got to it, with your great political memory. I'll just add that this was a ticket agent at Boston Logan, as I recall.

    I wonder if this 18 y/o has any regrets about his hesitancy getting those 17 people killed. The Logan AA ticket agent relates his thought later on:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0I3RQXrbnZ8

    Back to the young London security guard, sure, he was only 18 and didn't have much perspective. This was his job though, and he would have made how ever many years he did this menial job all worth a whole lot if he had saved these 17 lives (and the many injuries that I'm sure went along with the deaths).

    Would he have gotten the praise he deserved? Nah, probably nothing. He did have more to lose, in a way, by calling out these "Asians" for being terrorists. "Hey, there are plenty of white terrorists too, you know, you racist limey!"

    Manchester was the site of a IRA bombing in 1996. Useful for Urban Renewal and to benefit rich real estate developers at the time.

    As was the demolition of three WTC towers on Sept 11, 2001.

    As was the London Blitz, which targeted slums, instead of The City, or the Palace, or 10 Downing Street. Slums rebuilt as upscale high rent areas. Down in the underground all they heard was sirens and explosions.
