From my new book review in Taki’s Magazine:

LARPing Hate
by Steve Sailer

March 06, 2019

Hate Crime Hoax: How the Left Is Selling a Fake Race War is a timely and witty new book from Wilfred Reilly, a youngish black professor of political science at Kentucky State. He concludes that America’s real problem is not the vaunted outbreak of Trump-inspired hate crimes but instead the Establishment’s hate hysteria:

There is no race war in the USA in 2018. Let’s stop letting liars tell us there is…or we might actually get one.

Reilly, whose politics seem to take after conservative eminence Thomas Sowell, has assembled a database of 409 recent fake hate crimes, which is a lot.

So, what percentage do the fakes make up out of the total? Reilly’s problem is with coming up with an appropriate denominator of total hate crime allegations, fair and fake, to go along with his numerator of 409 phony ones. Therefore, he’s not willing to offer a precise calculation of what percentage of widely reported hate allegations are phony, merely estimating broadly that “Between 15 and 50 percent of hate crime accusations are flatly false.”

Last week, I analyzed all 21 incidents reported in a couple of 2016 “This Week in Hate” columns in The New York Times. Rather than counting only stories that are “flatly false,” I counted instances that turned out to actually uphold the Times’ theme that straight white male Trump supporters were out of control. My best guess is only about one-third of the NYT’s 21 curated cases actually supported The Narrative.

Read the whole thing there.

  1. There is no race war in the USA in 2018. Let’s stop letting liars tell us there is…or we might actually get one.

    That’s the unvarnished truth regarding black and white. His numbers notwithstanding.

    If the liars he mentions are among the chosen he knows where the real race war is located. But it can’t really be called a war until the whites fight back. Right now our champion is a tiny Somali woman from Minnesota.

    It looks like a cold/low intensity race war* to me; it's just being waged by the supposed victims/protagonists against the supposed aggressors/antagonists.

  2. I have a vague suspicion that the rise in hate hoaxes is related to the similar rise among young adults of Live Action Role Playing, such as going to Comic-Con dressed as an Imperial Stormtrooper and fighting lightsaber battles with other people dressed as Chewbacca and Princess Leia.

    Man, you are old. Take a look at a Youtube cosplay compilation ((this one, for example) and count the ones you know. Realize that all of those are so incredibly famous that everybody else immediately recognizes them, otherwise there would be no point.

    Oh and if you start suspecting that cosplay is an excuse for young girls to show the world their titties, how dare you. It is their way of engaging with nerd culture and if the character they identify with most happens to show a lot of skin…well they can hardly help how those problematic old men drew them, can they?

    It is in fact a hoax and two hate crimes.

    Exactly. The war has been ‘on’ for quite some time. Negligible resistance doesn’t negate the existence of a fully integrated assault.

    How he frames the ‘war’ is also revealing. What he means by race war is the implicit white-on-nonwhite violence.

    The presumption that the war - like racism, can only exist in one direction, (originating from whiteness), remains intact.

    Seeking the truth would require examining the the question independent of such presumed vectors. But this is like trying to read the narrative from right to left.

    Hate crimes, patriarchy (misogyny), rape culture, and racism are all subject to this universal presumption.

    Which is why “clown world” or the grand inversion are so apt. The lie is the common denominator of all the leftist/Prog death cult values.

    Seems all the viruses they set loose into the culture are of the same order: Invert the truth and multiply.

    He’s brave for his thoughtcrimes, but until the right refuses to accept the moral framing of the left, their ‘arguments’ will remain to be mere ornaments.

    Death is inevitable, but things like the ‘browing of America’ are not.

    Maybe he is right about one thing: if you bang the drums of a race war long enough, you may jus get one.

    But even then I don’t see the hate flowing from whites as much as I see white identity becoming something that actually exists, maybe even worth preserving. Gasp!

    Neeson set out, in the Northern Irish tradition of communal vengeance that did so much to make Belfast what it was from 1969 to 1998, to find a random black to beat up as a form of racial revenge. Fortunately, blacks were rare in Northern Ireland back then, so his plan came to nothing.

    My understanding is that he'd left Northern Ireland by that time, and might have been in New York. He knew the race of the perpetrator because that's what the victim said. And the reason he didn't carry out his plan was not, as Sailer guessed, because there weren't any blacks around, but because he was just idly imagining somebody would start trouble with him and give him an excuse. One of the takeaways from Randall Collins' "Violence: A Microsociological Theory" is that young men engage in a lot more bluster on the street than actual violence. Particularly if they don't outnumber their intended victim (which Neeson certainly would not in those neighborhoods). The obvious reason for this is because violence is very risky. So Neeson was basically indulging in the sort of revenge fantasy you'll find in some of his movies, although going nearer to the edge of making it a reality than most would before he came to his senses.

    I remember that BART murder - Nia Wilson was the victim. The murder was pretty gruesome, the guy stabbed the poor girl in the neck.

    I remember thinking at the time this is clearly a very mentally ill guy, and there was zero indication that the attack was racially motivated. This didn't stop mass demonstrations in Oakland.

    Ironically, within a 7 day period there were two other homicides on BART, which I assumed were Black on White but I don't know. Of course no one mentioned the racial makeup of the victims and perpetrators of the other two homicides.

    This article mentioned the two other homicides: https://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2018/07/23/bart-investigating-three-homicides-in-less-than-a-week/

    And this one shows the perpetrator of one of them: https://www.sfchronicle.com/crime/article/Suspect-in-fatal-attack-at-San-Leandro-BART-13117674.php

  13. After my browser’s partial recovery from Takimag’s script memory hogging, I can now write back, albeit, at slow speed. The first part of the article is good discussion, as usual, though I hope Mr. Reilly doesn’t seriously think that Diversity offices, Inclusion office, and Belonging offices are going to take his advice. Their business model is to start trouble immediately – bring up Emmitt Till and the legacy of Jim Crow, and ask questions later! Does he really think they want to go out of business by just calling the cops?

    The 2nd half of the article is a lot of psuedo-legal BS. You and Jared Taylor might want to think again, or maybe read the Constitution during your constitutionals, as do you really suggest different CHARGES against people depending on the race of the victim? Yeah, that’ll help out race relations. I personally don’t believe murder of a cop should be any different charge than the murder of anyone else. Really, are they higher-level humans? Not the ones I’ve seen, they aren’t. I do understand that there are different charges based on motivation (involuntary manslaughter, vol. manslaughter, murder, etc.) Adding other gradations based on how the perpetrator “felt” about his victim’s race is a bad idea (what would be next, sex, religion, financial situation*?).

    Some aspects of the criminal’s motivation are taken into account during sentencing, but that’s a different thing than new charges being added to the law books. It’s one thing to expect each of our wise [insert race here] judges to be have the wisdom of Salomon and the impartiality of Starfleet Command. Now, you reckon that the local, state or federal law enforcement officials can make great decisions on who is really hateful. Really, Steve?

    Due to your incessant reading of the NY Times, finally some of their continuing narratives has been absorbed. They’ve been pushing the “hate crime” thing for so long now, you have let them win and love this newspeak of Big Brother. No, hate crime charges are WRONG, and Affirmative Action is WRONG!

    .

    * BTW, on a lower-level, that is just like the gradation of traffic fines based on income that I’ve heard about in Scandinavian countries, Denmark, maybe? What a stupid Socialist idea that is! The people in government who made that shit up are the ones that our Founders would have tarred and feathered.

    I think sliding scale traffic fines is a good idea. Parking and traffic fines are horrendous in my area. I can afford to pay a $120 parking fine every month.

    But a lot of people can’t and use that $120 for rent utilities or gas and repairs to the beater they need to get to work. Then the fine doubled and triples and sooner or later a warrant is issued.

    Running red lights is about $380 last I heard. That’s a huge amount of money. In California which has so many poor people the evil local government would go bankrupt.


    Here’s how it actually works. Those who want to fight the tickets go to traffic court. Soon as he arrived judge rattles off go to the clerk and make an arrangement to pay come back st 1/30.
    Judge hears evictions and small claims then lunch recess.

    1/30 judge has read the clerk printout to dismiss all the tickets for inability to pay or whatever and he tells them all ticket dismissed leave. They leave and evictions small claims continues

    Many think that’s why the cost of tickets is so high. Plead poverty and don’t have to pay.

    The evil local government would probably make a lot more money if they’d reduce the price of tickets. A lot more people can afford to pay $25 than can afford to pay $120

  18. Thanks for the review Steve. I will have to give the good professor’s book a tumble.

    I’ve come around to the belief that it’s not unreasonable for society to especially try to deter crimes motivated primarily not by basic sins such as rage, greed, or lust but by animus against a demographic category.

    I remain unconvinced. All crimes are at root motivated by one or more of the Seven Deadlies; most often it is Pride combined with one of the others. But, since the old moral and ethical teachings handed down to us for millenia seem to be ignored or rejecetd outright by the emerging generations here in the Current Year, I suppose they’ll grasp on to whatever dubious pseudo-legal concept they can find.

    Some aspects of the criminal's motivation are taken into account during sentencing, but that's a different thing than new charges being added to the law books. It's one thing to expect each of our wise [insert race here] judges to be have the wisdom of Salomon and the impartiality of Starfleet Command. Now, you reckon that the local, state or federal law enforcement officials can make great decisions on who is really hateful. Really, Steve?

    Due to your incessant reading of the NY Times, finally some of their continuing narratives has been absorbed. They've been pushing the "hate crime" thing for so long now, you have let them win and love this newspeak of Big Brother. No, hate crime charges are WRONG, and Affirmative Action is WRONG!

    Neeson set out, in the Northern Irish tradition of communal vengeance that did so much to make Belfast what it was from 1969 to 1998, to find a random black to beat up as a form of racial revenge. Fortunately, blacks were rare in Northern Ireland back then, so his plan came to nothing.
     
    They were rare, yet Neeson did seem to guess correctly that the guy who raped his friend was black...

    I note you could have written, “Blacks were rare in Northern Ireland back then, so fortunately his plan came to nothing.”

    Are there any White on Black violent hate crimes (other than the Dylan Roof massacre)? I live in the SF Bay Area, and have never read of one locally or elsewhere.

     

    What about that white guy that killed a black chick on the BART? I think the guy was crazy though & didn't do it because she was black & in fact this has been quietly dropped by the media after the guy was caught.

    I remember that BART murder – Nia Wilson was the victim. The murder was pretty gruesome, the guy stabbed the poor girl in the neck.

    I remember thinking at the time this is clearly a very mentally ill guy, and there was zero indication that the attack was racially motivated. This didn’t stop mass demonstrations in Oakland.

    Ironically, within a 7 day period there were two other homicides on BART, which I assumed were Black on White but I don’t know. Of course no one mentioned the racial makeup of the victims and perpetrators of the other two homicides.

    This article mentioned the two other homicides: https://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2018/07/23/bart-investigating-three-homicides-in-less-than-a-week/

    And this one shows the perpetrator of one of them: https://www.sfchronicle.com/crime/article/Suspect-in-fatal-attack-at-San-Leandro-BART-13117674.php

    After my browser's partial recovery from Takimag's script memory hogging, I can now write back, albeit, at slow speed. The first part of the article is good discussion, as usual, though I hope Mr. Reilly doesn't seriously think that Diversity offices, Inclusion office, and Belonging offices are going to take his advice. Their business model is to start trouble immediately - bring up Emmitt Till and the legacy of Jim Crow, and ask questions later! Does he really think they want to go out of business by just calling the cops?

    The 2nd half of the article is a lot of psuedo-legal BS. You and Jared Taylor might want to think again, or maybe read the Constitution during your constitutionals, as do you really suggest different CHARGES against people depending on the race of the victim? Yeah, that'll help out race relations. I personally don't believe murder of a cop should be any different charge than the murder of anyone else. Really, are they higher-level humans? Not the ones I've seen, they aren't. I do understand that there are different charges based on motivation (involuntary manslaughter, vol. manslaughter, murder, etc.) Adding other gradations based on how the perpetrator "felt" about his victim's race is a bad idea (what would be next, sex, religion, financial situation*?).

    I think sliding scale traffic fines is a good idea. Parking and traffic fines are horrendous in my area. I can afford to pay a $120 parking fine every month.

    But a lot of people can’t and use that $120 for rent utilities or gas and repairs to the beater they need to get to work. Then the fine doubled and triples and sooner or later a warrant is issued.

    Running red lights is about $380 last I heard. That’s a huge amount of money. In California which has so many poor people the evil local government would go bankrupt.

    Here’s how it actually works. Those who want to fight the tickets go to traffic court. Soon as he arrived judge rattles off go to the clerk and make an arrangement to pay come back st 1/30.
    Judge hears evictions and small claims then lunch recess.

    1/30 judge has read the clerk printout to dismiss all the tickets for inability to pay or whatever and he tells them all ticket dismissed leave. They leave and evictions small claims continues

    Many think that’s why the cost of tickets is so high. Plead poverty and don’t have to pay.

    The evil local government would probably make a lot more money if they’d reduce the price of tickets. A lot more people can afford to pay $25 than can afford to pay $120

    The most amusing part was going on about how it started because white people had gotten sick of all the PC, and telling her, “No, Mom. They won’t have (((you))).”

    Righteous Jews always welcome on the side of Freedom and Liberty. That's because the "Righteous" part will always be more important than the other part. I'd share a foxhole any day with you, Lot, Jack D and all the other Righteous ones on the side of liberty. Take this for what its worth from just a typical Scots-Irish (actual, not (((euphemistic))) ) American yahoo.

    I watched "The Way We Were" a few years ago, although not that closely. James Woods plays the radical Cornell undergrad who loses Barbra Streisand to Robert Redford. Was his character supposed to be Jewish? Woods is kind of like Bob Odenkirk, another blond guy who can play Jewish. Redford, in contrast, can't.
