Black Deliveryman Says He Was Blocked and Interrogated by White Driver

Travis Miller Sr. said he was trying to leave a gated neighborhood in Oklahoma after a delivery when a vehicle blocked his path.

By Mariel Padilla, May 17, 2020

In contrast, the New York Times has never once published the names of the two white octogenarians visiting their son’s grave who were gunned down by a black man on May 8, the day after the first (of now 3) arrests in the Ahmaud Arbery story promoted so extravagantly by the NYT. Two and a half weeks later, the police have yet to venture to suggest a motive,

  1. It works too. I live around 20 miles north of where the Marinos were murdered. Not one person I’ve spoken with had even heard of the incident. All had at least some familiarity with the jogger down south.

  2. So what’s new ?

  3. We are the New York Times: We print all the news that fits the narrative.

  5. They don’t want to spook the Herd.

    NYTimes writers and people like Newsome and Cuomo love thinking about all of us as a herd. ‘Herd immunity’ alludes to a concept they really seem to be enjoy.

    Follow the Herd. The Herd is staying inside. Why are you going outside? Don’t force me to use the prod.

    Why are you so selfish? Don’t you know your selfish behavior endangers everyone in the Herd?

    Do not leave the Herd. Don’t you know what happens to stragglers? Stay with the Herd. The Herd will keep you safe.

    I think we need a new Herd. Let’s get a Herd that’s easier to wrangle and doesn’t cost so much upkeep.

    Recklessly spreading a disease around just because you can't bring yourself to miss an outing at Five Guys with your friends kinda does endanger the herd. That's not "freedom" or "liberty" but selfishness and greed. No wonder this society failed. These uberpatriots think they have a right to kill the sick and the elderly for their personal convenience. And don't bother saying otherwise. We've all seen the crowded beach and bar pictures by now, so this wasn't about muh economy ... and you people were dismissing Covid-19 back when little was known about it, so it's not like you opposed mitigation efforts based on science.

    As I've stated -- correctly -- before, if your ideology requires you to summarily doom countless people to their deaths for your personal benefit, then you have no answer to the questions of immigration, political correctness, or multiculturalism ... all of which requires group cohesion to oppose. You will ultimately lose in the end because progressives can always pull the "muh economy" card and win ("they'll pay for our social security"). In fact, that's exactly what they've been doing for 60 years. Someone outside the talk radio conservative herd might stop to ask why that is. But no. Rinse, wash, and repeat. As another poster said, America's response to the coronavirus has the faint vapors of a failed state.

    They don't and they won't. The end of Jewish high achievement took out Democratic talent, leaving POC, Pelosi, Biden, Schumer, none of whom are creative thinkers. The Republicans have not had a creative thinker since Teddy Roosevelt. The migration of the young from cities since COVID-19 and telecommuting means that they won't get creative thinkers in either tactics or strategy. The lack of economic funding base for the cities (they have only a political funding base) means that the money needed to maintain political organization as well as simple physical infrastructure has soaked up their capital budget -- they can't just overwhelm their opposition with raw expenditures anymore.

    Twilight for the US Establishment, Democrat and Republican. For further developments, let me suggest Crane Brinton, _Anatomy of a Revolution_, first published 1938. Written by a single scholar back when Europe was actively trying to re-invent Western Civilization and was up to its neck in fundamental revolutions, it is the best description I've seen of what's happening today.

    Yeah the overall push is to shame and punish those who resist and report criminal or suspicious behavior by their shocktroop pets, and ignore the victims of their pets like the Marinos. I really don't see a solution, other than maintaining high situational awareness at all times, and avoiding places frequented by the shocktroop demographic.

    But the murder of the Marinos was not an everyday happening. The motive is still not known. Nothing was stolen, and it was too well planned to be a spontaneous burst of rage. The killer was exceptionally well armed and kept shooting until the police killed him. The case is odd enough for the NYT to at least take a passing interest in it. The most likely reason they refrain from doing so is that it will lead them to the conclusion that the victims were killed because of their race.
  15. In more breaking news from the NYT, the science is in on why Black Bodies are more susceptible to Covid-19. Spoiler Alert: It’s got nothing to do with drinking too much grape soda or smoking menthols.

    It was a question asked in earnest. Some of the experts had devoted their entire careers to addressing questions surrounding racial health inequities. Years of research, and in some instances failed interventions, had left them baffled. Why are black people so sick?

    My answer was swift and unequivocal.

    “Slavery.”

    My colleagues looked befuddled as they tried to come to terms with my reply.

    *****
    Promoting strained associations between race, body size, and complications from this little-understood disease has served to reinforce an image of black people as wholly swept up in sensuous pleasures like eating and drinking, which supposedly makes our unruly bodies repositories of preventable weight-related illnesses. The attitudes I see today have echoes of what I described in “Fearing the Black Body: The Racial Origins of Fat Phobia.” My research showed that anti-fat attitudes originated not with medical findings, but with Enlightenment-era belief that overfeeding and fatness were evidence of “savagery” and racial inferiority.

    *****
    In a recent essay addressing Covid-19 specifically, Rashawn Ray underscored the legacy of redlining that pushed black people into poor, densely populated communities often with limited access to health care. And he pointed out that black people are overrepresented in service positions and as essential workers who have greater exposure than those with the luxury of sheltering in place. Ibram X. Kendi has written that the “irresponsible behavior of disproportionately poor people of color” — often cited as an important factor in health disparities — is a scapegoat directing American’s attention from the centrality of systemic racism in current racial health inequities.

    Naw, that would never work considering our current state of excess capacity for everything, including bread flour, yeast and toilet paper. But, if something were to upset our just-in-time food delivery system such that you had to stand in line, say six feet apart for fear of catching a potentially fatal disease, and you notice time after time that a certain ethnic group won’t/can’t play by the rules that ensure enough for everybody and keep everyone safe, what then?

    At what stage does self preservation from an immediate threat take precedence over self preservation from an implied threat? For that latter, think what would happen to your career if you said, “I don’t want to shake your hand Mr. Negro because you don’t wash your hands after using the urinal and you talk too loudly and cut up while I’m trying to work and then you ridicule me for working so hard (when the reason is I have to do your work too because you have the IQ of a four year old.”

    I’ll respond to it. Viruses are a fact of life. People are going to die. It’s the circle of fucking life. The only concern is not overrunning hospitals, and protecting our old folks in managed care. Since we seem to have achieved that (except the managed care old folks) during the initial run, without ANY hospitals being overrun, it stands to reason that we should expand people’s ability to interact, and see what happens next. This is a running experiment that will inform our policy come the next virus encroachment, and encroach it will.

    -- We did not go with the "wipe it out" option which would have required Trump to have quarantined off China as soon as the NSA/CIA/CDC gave him the word that a SARS v. 2 was loose there. Of course, we didn't get that not primarily because of Trump, but because those agencies are full of globalist progs who don't think about concepts like "the interests of the American people".

    -- Once you're not "crushing it", you're in to some sort of "management"--until vaccine or herd immunity--regime.
    The key components of such a regime:
    -- quarantining sick people
    -- good public health info (inc. vit C, vit D, zinc, hydroxy, etc.)
    -- masking up in indoor public spaces that everyone will use (government officies, grocery stories, transportation) in the course of ordinary life

    These people aren't violating any of that. They are outside having fun in a completely *voluntary* activity that no one vulnerable or even just worried about can possibily have any need to engage in.

    It's funny how in the middle of ticking off basically rational, basically true, stuff people throw in something that is just laughably stupid.

    People have been aware of respiratory spread of disease and throwing coverings over their faces--when there is an epidemic, or when dealing with a sick person in their house--for literally thousands of years.

    And scientists have done a bunch of research on it--which materials stop viruses at what percentages under what conditions. Yeah, masks work--from extremely well, to so-so 50% cut. And, of course, societally they work extremely well when everyone masks up--the Czech approach-- so that the virus spewer is stopped from spewing the viruses out into the air in big numbers.

    Masking to reduce disease spread is ancient wisdom, not some rainbow faggy innovation made up by progs yesterday like gay marriage.

    What's ironic--and sad--is that masks are how this epidemic could have been crushed--and crushed pretty immediately--with people going about their business and not locking down shit.

  22. Its a Black Planet. Public Enemy got that one right. It is almost, but not quite, legal for Black people to kill any White person for any reason at all at any time. Like Samurai could kill peasants with no repercussions in Edo Period Japan.

    Lets get real Steve, your Citizenship was DOA decades ago.

    What we need is a Reverse OJ. Those rednecks getting off, from all charges. And White people everywhere celebrating.

    At a more practical level, White people have to realize:

    The Government is the enemy and hates them and wants them dead.

    The Government is essentially run by Black people.

    White people have no power and are about one Kristallnacht away from a “kinder, gentler final solution” to the White people problem.

    Thus, the rules: don’t trust any non White person and almost no White people. Consider all non Whites to be one radio broadcast away from becoming Interamhamwe in Rwanda. Be armed whenever possible and mantain skill and proficiency in arms of all kinds. Avoid attracting any kind of attention and give off “boring” vibes whenever possible. Be as gray and fading into the background as possible. Have a bug out plan when the killing starts in serious nature. Don’t trust much of anyone. Expect to be betrayed by friends and family and plan for that eventuality. Be ready to execute extreme violence without pity or remorse to survive if a serious attempt to kill you occurs. This means Reginald Denny being pulled from the cab of his truck, not someone being rude to you at Wal-Mart obviously. And don’t trust anyone anytime anywhere.

    I am quite serious, President Abrams will almost certainly call for the Purge Movies to be real, and aimed exclusively at Whites.

    Right you are. Arm advice: be courteous, professional, and have a plan to kill anybody you meet (or who meets you). Be prepared to execute that plan if the rules of engagement so dictate, and only if they so dictate.

    So what are the rules of engagement?

    Each state has a set of circumstances in which it is legal (although not required) to kill another person. One is usually self defense, although even that may be limited (by the old "duty to withdraw" doctrine). Some states permit use of lethal or sub-lethal force to protect others from specified crimes. Look up that law for your state: search for "use of force laws " . That law determines the applicable rules of engagement for lethal (and, in practice, non-lethal) force. Comply with this law and have a legal services agreement purchased and in effect before applying violent force. Check your findings with a qualified self defense instructor and with a ** sympathetic** criminal lawyer.

    Then follow the rules of engagement and stop worrying.

    Notes:
    a) If you don't want to use deadly force, take a self defense course (that offers POST certification) in use of the extendable baton or pepper spray. With no course, baton use will be considered deadly force and pepper spray will be considered reckless endangerment. Be advised that non-lethal weapons do not stop attackers as reliably and quickly as lethal force weapons.
    b) If the rules of engagement for your state (or municipality, for that matter) are not what you can tolerate, then leave the state. You might feel that you're lucky, and a need to apply these laws won't happen to you. Allow me to point out that if you were lucky, you'd already live in a place that had tolerable rules of engagement. So you're not lucky, and had best evacuate before your bad luck gets you killed.

    In more breaking news from the NYT, the science is in on why Black Bodies are more susceptible to Covid-19. Spoiler Alert: It's got nothing to do with drinking too much grape soda or smoking menthols.

    It was a question asked in earnest. Some of the experts had devoted their entire careers to addressing questions surrounding racial health inequities. Years of research, and in some instances failed interventions, had left them baffled. Why are black people so sick?

    My answer was swift and unequivocal.

    “Slavery.”

    My colleagues looked befuddled as they tried to come to terms with my reply.

    *****
    Promoting strained associations between race, body size, and complications from this little-understood disease has served to reinforce an image of black people as wholly swept up in sensuous pleasures like eating and drinking, which supposedly makes our unruly bodies repositories of preventable weight-related illnesses. The attitudes I see today have echoes of what I described in “Fearing the Black Body: The Racial Origins of Fat Phobia.” My research showed that anti-fat attitudes originated not with medical findings, but with Enlightenment-era belief that overfeeding and fatness were evidence of “savagery” and racial inferiority.

    *****
    In a recent essay addressing Covid-19 specifically, Rashawn Ray underscored the legacy of redlining that pushed black people into poor, densely populated communities often with limited access to health care. And he pointed out that black people are overrepresented in service positions and as essential workers who have greater exposure than those with the luxury of sheltering in place. Ibram X. Kendi has written that the “irresponsible behavior of disproportionately poor people of color” — often cited as an important factor in health disparities — is a scapegoat directing American’s attention from the centrality of systemic racism in current racial health inequities.

    When the man invites her to “please call the cops,” she says: “I’m going to tell them there’s an African American man threatening my life.”

    “Please tell them whatever you like,” he responds.

    The dog walker then pulls down her mask as she gets on the phone and says: “I’m in the Ramble and an African American man with a bicycle helmet, he is recording me and threatening my dog.”

    She pauses before repeating that “there is an African American man. He is recording me and threatening my dog.”

    Most people don't. Hence, if someone semi-respectable fights back, his stance will be used as justification for inflicting violence on blacks indiscriminately. Not just a few retaliatory crimes here and there, but a barrage of riots, bombings and shootings on a scale America hasn't seen since the pre-civil rights era.

    Very probable, but if you are going to kill someone soley because of their race, and they are not something exceptionally unusual, you have to ask: Why that particular person? I mean, cops deal with thousands upon thousands of blacks and are accused of killing some black “because he was black”. Yeah, right, if he just wanted to kill a black he wouldn’t have killed that one then, not without bringing that amount of heat on him.

    I am not accusing the decedents but something beyond the race might have been in play. We just don’t know.

    They don't want to spook the Herd.

    NYTimes writers and people like Newsome and Cuomo love thinking about all of us as a herd. 'Herd immunity' alludes to a concept they really seem to be enjoy.

    Follow the Herd. The Herd is staying inside. Why are you going outside? Don't force me to use the prod.

    Why are you so selfish? Don't you know your selfish behavior endangers everyone in the Herd?

    Do not leave the Herd. Don't you know what happens to stragglers? Stay with the Herd. The Herd will keep you safe.

    I think we need a new Herd. Let's get a Herd that's easier to wrangle and doesn't cost so much upkeep.

    Load those old steers up and send'em off to the abattoir. What did they ever do for the Herd?

    Why are you so selfish? Don’t you know your selfish behavior endangers everyone in the Herd?

    Recklessly spreading a disease around just because you can’t bring yourself to miss an outing at Five Guys with your friends kinda does endanger the herd. That’s not “freedom” or “liberty” but selfishness and greed. No wonder this society failed. These uberpatriots think they have a right to kill the sick and the elderly for their personal convenience. And don’t bother saying otherwise. We’ve all seen the crowded beach and bar pictures by now, so this wasn’t about muh economy … and you people were dismissing Covid-19 back when little was known about it, so it’s not like you opposed mitigation efforts based on science.

    As I’ve stated — correctly — before, if your ideology requires you to summarily doom countless people to their deaths for your personal benefit, then you have no answer to the questions of immigration, political correctness, or multiculturalism … all of which requires group cohesion to oppose. You will ultimately lose in the end because progressives can always pull the “muh economy” card and win (“they’ll pay for our social security”). In fact, that’s exactly what they’ve been doing for 60 years. Someone outside the talk radio conservative herd might stop to ask why that is. But no. Rinse, wash, and repeat. As another poster said, America’s response to the coronavirus has the faint vapors of a failed state.

    In hindsight, in this case, her calling the police was wrong. This black guy was being a Karen, but she broke the rules, he was a bird watcher, and not physically threatening her. But I wonder if another white woman in the future is going to be in a situation where she feels threatened and thinks of calling the police, but doesn't, because she's afraid of getting canceled by Black Twitter. And instead, she'll get killed.

Not in a lab sponsored by whichever bogeyman one prefers.

    FWIW, I’m impressed that a corporation can and will respond with an employee disciplinary action on the evening of a major holiday. Such are our times.

    Also weird is that all three of the major players (not counting the dog) have the same surname. If Amy/Karen had only spent time here on iSteve she’d already know that she was seriously outranked in such an exchange and that it would be foolhardy to stand her ground. But the MSM doesn’t teach it that way.

    Why are you so selfish? Don’t you know your selfish behavior endangers everyone in the Herd?
     
    Recklessly spreading a disease around just because you can't bring yourself to miss an outing at Five Guys with your friends kinda does endanger the herd. That's not "freedom" or "liberty" but selfishness and greed. No wonder this society failed. These uberpatriots think they have a right to kill the sick and the elderly for their personal convenience. And don't bother saying otherwise. We've all seen the crowded beach and bar pictures by now, so this wasn't about muh economy ... and you people were dismissing Covid-19 back when little was known about it, so it's not like you opposed mitigation efforts based on science.

    As I've stated -- correctly -- before, if your ideology requires you to summarily doom countless people to their deaths for your personal benefit, then you have no answer to the questions of immigration, political correctness, or multiculturalism ... all of which requires group cohesion to oppose. You will ultimately lose in the end because progressives can always pull the "muh economy" card and win ("they'll pay for our social security"). In fact, that's exactly what they've been doing for 60 years. Someone outside the talk radio conservative herd might stop to ask why that is. But no. Rinse, wash, and repeat. As another poster said, America's response to the coronavirus has the faint vapors of a failed state.

    For those of us born in the 1960s, we've been spoon fed this nonsense for over a half a century. It never ends and it's only getting worse. Much worse.

    The question is when is someone semi-respectable going to fight back and risk being labelled the dreaded "racist." Nobody can say "white lives matter" for the Marinos?

    I strongly believe in judging people by the content of their character, and not by race or ethnicity. But that goes both ways. Otherwise, you're just a sucker.

    I strongly believe in judging people by the content of their character, and not by race or ethnicity.

    Most people don’t. Hence, if someone semi-respectable fights back, his stance will be used as justification for inflicting violence on blacks indiscriminately. Not just a few retaliatory crimes here and there, but a barrage of riots, bombings and shootings on a scale America hasn’t seen since the pre-civil rights era. People in high places would enjoy this as much as the next person, but they understand it makes the country susceptible to foreign interference.

    That’s Ocean City, Maryland, which isn’t the classiest place. It’s pretty downscale and the main prole beach for the DC area and Maryland, and attracts proles from Pennsylvania and Ohio as well.

    She may have panicked. It’s frightening to be a single woman accosted by a young man. I doubt she was racist (looks like she donated $1,000 to Obama’s campaign). She may be racist now though, after Black Twitter cost her her dog and, if what you say is true, her job.

    In hindsight, in this case, her calling the police was wrong. This black guy was being a Karen, but she broke the rules, he was a bird watcher, and not physically threatening her. But I wonder if another white woman in the future is going to be in a situation where she feels threatened and thinks of calling the police, but doesn’t, because she’s afraid of getting canceled by Black Twitter.

    This story is a wonderful train wreck of stereotypes.
    The white woman is doing what blacks usually do (though she would never admit that they do it) - violating public rules of etiquette (letting her dog off leash). The black guy is doing what white women usually do - calling this out and demanding that public etiquette be upheld (doing this not because he cares about the etiquette but because he sees a chance to stick it to whitey). The liberal black-loving white woman is naturally, and rightly, afraid of all black males in Central Park and calls the police. She will never admit to herself that she fears him because he is black, but at the same time cannot help emphasizing "African American" in her police call.
    The black-loving liberal Democrat Karen will now be buried in a grave marked "racist scum" on internet boot hill.
    , @anon
    More to the story:
    When she initially refused to leash her dog after Mr. Cooper requested it, he tossed some kind of treats to the dog. This took place before the video is turned on.
    So, Mr. Cooper was doing something at least mildy provacative to get her goat, which of course could also frighten her since she is a woman alone and he is a man.
    Commenters on Twitter said she was "obviously" pretending to be scared. Actually it is pretty obvious in the video she is genuinely scared (whether justified or not).
    These "caught in the act" videos always have more context that makes things more ambiguous.
    , @Alden
    Exactly. Many Whites, men and women. have been have been robbed and attacked by blacks because they didn’t want to seen racist by avoiding blacks or chatting with one while the one behind attacked them.

    Interesting that THE MEN OF UNZ who constantly post “ avoid the groid ” “ always carry” “ call police scream fight when approached by a black “ “ situational awareness” are as per usual rejoicing when a White woman is harmed after a confrontation with a black.

    Calling police when a black man approaches a lone woman is the epitome of the situational awareness the White woman hating White men of UNZ always preach. A lone White woman did this and the White woman hating Men of UNZ attack her exactly as the blacks and liberals did.

    She continues to ask him to stop filming — and then threatens to call 911.

    When the man invites her to “please call the cops,” she says: “I’m going to tell them there’s an African American man threatening my life.”

    “Please tell them whatever you like,” he responds.

    The dog walker then pulls down her mask as she gets on the phone and says: “I’m in the Ramble and an African American man with a bicycle helmet, he is recording me and threatening my dog.”

    She pauses before repeating that “there is an African American man. He is recording me and threatening my dog.”

    After an other pause, the woman appears suddenly shaken up as she cries: “I’m sorry, I can’t hear!”

    “I’m being threatened by a man in the Ramble, please send the cops immediately.”
     
    Damn that is one dumb white woman.

    She’s probably been reading the New York Times, and thinks the cops actually are a racist goon squad who are out to beat up or kill any black guy that a Karen complains about. It’s a case of liberals believing their own bull sh*t.

    It just goes to show how heavily invested the New York Echo is in the tactic of blacks as proxy warriors on the war on whites (or Christians, if you prefer). They realize the tactic is about to reach the end of its useful life and they fear they have no substitute tactic in a state of readiness.

    they fear they have no substitute tactic in a state of readiness.

    They don’t and they won’t. The end of Jewish high achievement took out Democratic talent, leaving POC, Pelosi, Biden, Schumer, none of whom are creative thinkers. The Republicans have not had a creative thinker since Teddy Roosevelt. The migration of the young from cities since COVID-19 and telecommuting means that they won’t get creative thinkers in either tactics or strategy. The lack of economic funding base for the cities (they have only a political funding base) means that the money needed to maintain political organization as well as simple physical infrastructure has soaked up their capital budget — they can’t just overwhelm their opposition with raw expenditures anymore.

    Twilight for the US Establishment, Democrat and Republican. For further developments, let me suggest Crane Brinton, _Anatomy of a Revolution_, first published 1938.

    Adrienne Shelly is a good name to remember. She was murdered by an illegal alien from Ecuador who was employed by a contractor working in her apartment building. The police originally ruled her death as a suicide but her husband insisted that she would have never killed herself and demanded that the police do a more thorough investigation, which discovered a shoe print that lead to the eventual arrest of the killer, who was convicted of manslaughter.

    Fit to print:

    Surge in new covid-19 cases!

    Reopenings cause concerns and fear!

    Second wave raises concerns and fear!

    Not fit to print:

    Comorbidity over 85%

    Median age of covid related deaths over 70.

    Masks don't actually do anything.

    Rates of suicide, drug overdoses, domestic abuse, auto theft, child abuse, etc, etc, etc, etc all on the rise.

    Masks don’t actually do anything.

    It’s funny how in the middle of ticking off basically rational, basically true, stuff people throw in something that is just laughably stupid.

    People have been aware of respiratory spread of disease and throwing coverings over their faces–when there is an epidemic, or when dealing with a sick person in their house–for literally thousands of years.

    And scientists have done a bunch of research on it–which materials stop viruses at what percentages under what conditions. Yeah, masks work–from extremely well, to so-so 50% cut. And, of course, societally they work extremely well when everyone masks up–the Czech approach– so that the virus spewer is stopped from spewing the viruses out into the air in big numbers.

    Masking to reduce disease spread is ancient wisdom, not some rainbow faggy innovation made up by progs yesterday like gay marriage.

    What’s ironic–and sad–is that masks are how this epidemic could have been crushed–and crushed pretty immediately–with people going about their business and not locking down shit.

    "People have been aware of respiratory spread of disease and throwing coverings over their faces–when there is an epidemic, or when dealing with a sick person in their house–for literally thousands of years."

    There is essentially a flu epidemic with similar death totals (and this assumes that the deaths are actually attributable to Covid, and not whatever preexisting illness 80% of the deceased already had) every year. No one was wearing a mask before this. The masks are a part of the fear campaign. I find it laughable that you haven't grasped this concept, considering how locked on you are about other topics.

    "And scientists have done a bunch of research on it–which materials stop viruses at what percentages under what conditions. Yeah, masks work–from extremely well, to so-so 50% cut. And, of course, societally they work extremely well when everyone masks up–the Czech approach– so that the virus spewer is stopped from spewing the viruses out into the air in big numbers."

    I would venture that 90% of the people wearing masks aren't wearing or caring for them properly, thus making their functionality even more questionable.

    "What’s ironic–and sad–is that masks are how this epidemic could have been crushed–and crushed pretty immediately–with people going about their business and not locking down shit."

    You don't even have the benefit of hindsight to make that claim with a straight face. What's sad is that so many people have been conned into celebrating their loss of personal freedoms and personal choice, and have done so based on a lie and a campaign of fear. The decrees that masks will be worn, illegal and unconstitutional even as they are, were made by politicians who's sole goal was to avoid being held responsible for a single death related to covid. You're not a loon. Wear your mask if you wish, citizen. Stop telling other people what to do, ok buddy? I haven't worn a mask for a single second yet, and I still don't know or know anyone who knows anyone who has had the virus.

    The implied assumption is that Blacks don’t have the same level of conscience as Whites. That they don’t have the same capacity for empathy and self-control.
     
    Can’t argue with you about that, but assuming you can get a lot of people whites to agree with you, what’s the next step? Lifeboat ethics?

    Naw, that would never work considering our current state of excess capacity for everything, including bread flour, yeast and toilet paper. But, if something were to upset our just-in-time food delivery system such that you had to stand in line, say six feet apart for fear of catching a potentially fatal disease, and you notice time after time that a certain ethnic group won’t/can’t play by the rules that ensure enough for everybody and keep everyone safe, what then?

    At what stage does self preservation from an immediate threat take precedence over self preservation from an implied threat? For that latter, think what would happen to your career if you said, “I don’t want to shake your hand Mr. Negro because you don’t wash your hands after using the urinal and you talk too loudly and cut up while I’m trying to work and then you ridicule me for working so hard (when the reason is I have to do your work too because you have the IQ of a four year old.”

    Sorry. Got carried away.

    At what point does common sense overrule the liberal nanny state?

    You know I would pretty much settle for just buying Blacks off, making them semi-wards of the state, if Whites could be allowed to have their own communities.

    My response:

    — We did not go with the “wipe it out” option which would have required Trump to have quarantined off China as soon as the NSA/CIA/CDC gave him the word that a SARS v. 2 was loose there. Of course, we didn’t get that not primarily because of Trump, but because those agencies are full of globalist progs who don’t think about concepts like “the interests of the American people”.

    — Once you’re not “crushing it”, you’re in to some sort of “management”–until vaccine or herd immunity–regime.
    The key components of such a regime:
    — quarantining sick people
    — good public health info (inc. vit C, vit D, zinc, hydroxy, etc.)
    — masking up in indoor public spaces that everyone will use (government officies, grocery stories, transportation) in the course of ordinary life

    These people aren’t violating any of that. They are outside having fun in a completely *voluntary* activity that no one vulnerable or even just worried about can possibily have any need to engage in.

    Furthermore, if there are one or two asymp infectious here and a couple more people pick it up … great. They are young people. They’ll kick it. Summertime when respiratory viruses have a hard time is a *great* for the healthy young to have Xi and become Xi-immune. More kissing (hetero-only in public) please!

    It just goes to show how heavily invested the New York Echo is in the tactic of blacks as proxy warriors on the war on whites (or Christians, if you prefer). They realize the tactic is about to reach the end of its useful life and they fear they have no substitute tactic in a state of readiness.

    Yeah the overall push is to shame and punish those who resist and report criminal or suspicious behavior by their shocktroop pets, and ignore the victims of their pets like the Marinos.

    Back in the early 90s in NYC Adrienne Shelly was associated with Cucaracha Theatre, who along with Ridge Theatre and the zany opera composer John Moran did some really great experimental work in a sort of nouveau-neo post-avant context of their own making. Cucaracha had a long-running weekly midnight live soap opera performed in a giant cavernous space downtown, and threw great after parties after the show in the same space, to which the whole audience was invited. It was a great vibe and a fun scene, a bit like Annoyance Theater in Chicago only weirder. Adrienne and a lot of other interesting talent came out of it. She is missed.

    She may have panicked. It's frightening to be a single woman accosted by a young man. I doubt she was racist (looks like she donated $1,000 to Obama's campaign). She may be racist now though, after Black Twitter cost her her dog and, if what you say is true, her job.

    In hindsight, in this case, her calling the police was wrong. This black guy was being a Karen, but she broke the rules, he was a bird watcher, and not physically threatening her. But I wonder if another white woman in the future is going to be in a situation where she feels threatened and thinks of calling the police, but doesn't, because she's afraid of getting canceled by Black Twitter. And instead, she'll get killed.

    This story is a wonderful train wreck of stereotypes.
    The white woman is doing what blacks usually do (though she would never admit that they do it) – violating public rules of etiquette (letting her dog off leash). The black guy is doing what white women usually do – calling this out and demanding that public etiquette be upheld (doing this not because he cares about the etiquette but because he sees a chance to stick it to whitey). The liberal black-loving white woman is naturally, and rightly, afraid of all black males in Central Park and calls the police. She will never admit to herself that she fears him because he is black, but at the same time cannot help emphasizing “African American” in her police call.

    Its a Black Planet. Public Enemy got that one right. It is almost, but not quite, legal for Black people to kill any White person for any reason at all at any time. Like Samurai could kill peasants with no repercussions in Edo Period Japan.

    Lets get real Steve, your Citizenship was DOA decades ago.

    What we need is a Reverse OJ. Those rednecks getting off, from all charges. And White people everywhere celebrating.

    At a more practical level, White people have to realize:

    The Government is the enemy and hates them and wants them dead.

    The Government is essentially run by Black people.

    White people have no power and are about one Kristallnacht away from a "kinder, gentler final solution" to the White people problem.

    Thus, the rules: don't trust any non White person and almost no White people. Consider all non Whites to be one radio broadcast away from becoming Interamhamwe in Rwanda. Be armed whenever possible and mantain skill and proficiency in arms of all kinds. Avoid attracting any kind of attention and give off "boring" vibes whenever possible. Be as gray and fading into the background as possible. Have a bug out plan when the killing starts in serious nature. Don't trust much of anyone. Expect to be betrayed by friends and family and plan for that eventuality. Be ready to execute extreme violence without pity or remorse to survive if a serious attempt to kill you occurs. This means Reginald Denny being pulled from the cab of his truck, not someone being rude to you at Wal-Mart obviously. And don't trust anyone anytime anywhere.

    I am quite serious, President Abrams will almost certainly call for the Purge Movies to be real, and aimed exclusively at Whites.

    Right you are. Arm advice: be courteous, professional, and have a plan to kill anybody you meet (or who meets you). Be prepared to execute that plan if the rules of engagement so dictate, and only if they so dictate.

    So what are the rules of engagement?

    Each state has a set of circumstances in which it is legal (although not required) to kill another person. One is usually self defense, although even that may be limited (by the old “duty to withdraw” doctrine). Some states permit use of lethal or sub-lethal force to protect others from specified crimes. Look up that law for your state: search for “use of force laws ” . That law determines the applicable rules of engagement for lethal (and, in practice, non-lethal) force. Comply with this law and have a legal services agreement purchased and in effect before applying violent force. Check your findings with a qualified self defense instructor and with a ** sympathetic** criminal lawyer.

    Then follow the rules of engagement and stop worrying.

    Notes:
    a) If you don’t want to use deadly force, take a self defense course (that offers POST certification) in use of the extendable baton or pepper spray. With no course, baton use will be considered deadly force and pepper spray will be considered reckless endangerment. Be advised that non-lethal weapons do not stop attackers as reliably and quickly as lethal force weapons.
    b) If the rules of engagement for your state (or municipality, for that matter) are not what you can tolerate, then leave the state. You might feel that you’re lucky, and a need to apply these laws won’t happen to you. Allow me to point out that if you were lucky, you’d already live in a place that had tolerable rules of engagement. So you’re not lucky, and had best evacuate before your bad luck gets you killed.

    The Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit filed on behalf of Andrew Ostroy also seeks to hold the owners and management of the building where she was killed accountable, calling them “vicariously liable” for her death…

    https://nypost.com/2008/11/04/kin-sues-firm-in-actress-murder/

    This is a typical Andy Ostroy tweet:

  106. Maybe so, but it seems the Mask Nazis are becoming more strident even regarding benign, uncrowded outdoor settings where you’d be better off without one. So now the masks have become more of a social signifier than a purely protective device.

    Agreed. But that’s a different issue than “masks don’t actually do anything”.

    I put a mask on when i go into to ACE or HomeDepot–even though Brevard County has trivial infection rates. If i fly anywhere i mask up. (I believe a bunch of airlines require it now.) Just pitching in to slow spread and make is safer for the vulnerable. I don’t wear a mask to go to the beach, walk around the neighborhood, sit on the neighbors’ patio, etc. etc. Common sense.

    Obviously the Karens–female and male–are out in force. Some of the same people who a few months ago were preaching Hug-a-Chinamen and What-we-have-to-guard-against-is-bias.

    Big shock.

    My argument is … common sense. Do what works that is easy and cheap.

    The dishonesty of the MSM has worked its way into the everyday thinking and speech of progressives. It has become a pattern of thought, a habit of speech, a philosophy. That was my observation and hypothesis; I thought I was so brilliant. But then I googled “dishonesty is contagious “and found out that this is well-trodden ground. Anyway, this learned dishonesty really puts a damper on trying to communicate with liberals. It would be enough to cope with if they were merely insane.

    How about an analogy with Gresham’s law of “bad money drives out good”?

    Adrienne Shelly is a good name to remember. She was murdered by an illegal alien from Ecuador who was employed by a contractor working in her apartment building. The police originally ruled her death as a suicide but her husband insisted that she would have never killed herself and demanded that the police do a more thorough investigation, which discovered a shoe print that lead to the eventual arrest of the killer, who was convicted of manslaughter.

    Back in the early 90s in NYC Adrienne Shelly was associated with Cucaracha Theatre, who along with Ridge Theatre and the zany opera composer John Moran did some really great experimental work in a sort of nouveau-neo post-avant context of their own making. Cucaracha had a long-running weekly midnight live soap opera performed in a giant cavernous space downtown, and threw great after parties after the show in the same space, to which the whole audience was invited. It was a great vibe and a fun scene, a bit like Annoyance Theater in Chicago only weirder. Adrienne and a lot of other interesting talent came out of it. She is missed.

    She didn’t gain her success from there. She was in another theater group before that. She became a low level of famous thanks to her films written and directed by Hal Hartley. Hartley allegedly came onto her like a ton of bricks during the filming of the first movie.

    Allegedly, although Shelly was repulsed by Harley physically, she feared she wouldn’t be included in his next movie, which he implied he would write, and she would star in. So she slept with him throughout both films. Both movies were successful in NYC. The village voice gave rave reviews.

    Despite his promise to cast her as lead in his third film, she ended the "relationship," since she always considered him to be physically repulsive. Consequently, Hartley never cast her again, and her acting career became problematic, so she joined up with different small theater companies around NYC, her entry based on her notoriety in the Hartley movies. She got into writing because she was aging out of her ingenue role, which was all she knew how to play, and nobody was calling her for auditions.

    She wrote and directed "Waitress," got killed, and her husband has apparently been living off it ever since, while publicly arguing against legislation that would have prevented her murder in the first place.

    Indeed, it was a different time.

    Why are you so selfish? Don’t you know your selfish behavior endangers everyone in the Herd?
     
    Recklessly spreading a disease around just because you can't bring yourself to miss an outing at Five Guys with your friends kinda does endanger the herd. That's not "freedom" or "liberty" but selfishness and greed. No wonder this society failed. These uberpatriots think they have a right to kill the sick and the elderly for their personal convenience. And don't bother saying otherwise. We've all seen the crowded beach and bar pictures by now, so this wasn't about muh economy ... and you people were dismissing Covid-19 back when little was known about it, so it's not like you opposed mitigation efforts based on science.

    As I've stated -- correctly -- before, if your ideology requires you to summarily doom countless people to their deaths for your personal benefit, then you have no answer to the questions of immigration, political correctness, or multiculturalism ... all of which requires group cohesion to oppose. You will ultimately lose in the end because progressives can always pull the "muh economy" card and win ("they'll pay for our social security"). In fact, that's exactly what they've been doing for 60 years. Someone outside the talk radio conservative herd might stop to ask why that is. But no. Rinse, wash, and repeat. As another poster said, America's response to the coronavirus has the faint vapors of a failed state.

If you had done the socially responsible thing and locked yourself in a padded room and had your meals slid into you through a slot, you could have saved countless lives.

    Masks don’t actually do anything.
     
    It's funny how in the middle of ticking off basically rational, basically true, stuff people throw in something that is just laughably stupid.

    People have been aware of respiratory spread of disease and throwing coverings over their faces--when there is an epidemic, or when dealing with a sick person in their house--for literally thousands of years.

    And scientists have done a bunch of research on it--which materials stop viruses at what percentages under what conditions. Yeah, masks work--from extremely well, to so-so 50% cut. And, of course, societally they work extremely well when everyone masks up--the Czech approach-- so that the virus spewer is stopped from spewing the viruses out into the air in big numbers.

    Masking to reduce disease spread is ancient wisdom, not some rainbow faggy innovation made up by progs yesterday like gay marriage.

    What's ironic--and sad--is that masks are how this epidemic could have been crushed--and crushed pretty immediately--with people going about their business and not locking down shit.


    I guess i'm a loon. My whole life i've thought "effective, simple and cheap", if available, is the solution to choose.

    “People have been aware of respiratory spread of disease and throwing coverings over their faces–when there is an epidemic, or when dealing with a sick person in their house–for literally thousands of years.”

    There is essentially a flu epidemic with similar death totals (and this assumes that the deaths are actually attributable to Covid, and not whatever preexisting illness 80% of the deceased already had) every year. No one was wearing a mask before this. The masks are a part of the fear campaign. I find it laughable that you haven’t grasped this concept, considering how locked on you are about other topics.

    “And scientists have done a bunch of research on it–which materials stop viruses at what percentages under what conditions. Yeah, masks work–from extremely well, to so-so 50% cut. And, of course, societally they work extremely well when everyone masks up–the Czech approach– so that the virus spewer is stopped from spewing the viruses out into the air in big numbers.”

    https://www.researchgate.net/publication/340570735_Masks_Don%27t_Work_A_review_of_science_relevant_to_COVID-19_social_policy

    I would venture that 90% of the people wearing masks aren’t wearing or caring for them properly, thus making their functionality even more questionable.

    “What’s ironic–and sad–is that masks are how this epidemic could have been crushed–and crushed pretty immediately–with people going about their business and not locking down shit.”

    You don’t even have the benefit of hindsight to make that claim with a straight face. What’s sad is that so many people have been conned into celebrating their loss of personal freedoms and personal choice, and have done so based on a lie and a campaign of fear. The decrees that masks will be worn, illegal and unconstitutional even as they are, were made by politicians who’s sole goal was to avoid being held responsible for a single death related to covid. You’re not a loon. Wear your mask if you wish, citizen. Stop telling other people what to do, ok buddy? I haven’t worn a mask for a single second yet, and I still don’t know or know anyone who knows anyone who has had the virus.

    She may have panicked. It's frightening to be a single woman accosted by a young man. I doubt she was racist (looks like she donated $1,000 to Obama's campaign). She may be racist now though, after Black Twitter cost her her dog and, if what you say is true, her job.

    In hindsight, in this case, her calling the police was wrong. This black guy was being a Karen, but she broke the rules, he was a bird watcher, and not physically threatening her. But I wonder if another white woman in the future is going to be in a situation where she feels threatened and thinks of calling the police, but doesn't, because she's afraid of getting canceled by Black Twitter. And instead, she'll get killed.

    More to the story:
    When she initially refused to leash her dog after Mr. Cooper requested it, he tossed some kind of treats to the dog. This took place before the video is turned on.
    So, Mr. Cooper was doing something at least mildy provacative to get her goat, which of course could also frighten her since she is a woman alone and he is a man.
    Commenters on Twitter said she was “obviously” pretending to be scared. Actually it is pretty obvious in the video she is genuinely scared (whether justified or not).
    These “caught in the act” videos always have more context that makes things more ambiguous.

    Exactly. Many Whites, men and women. have been have been robbed and attacked by blacks because they didn’t want to seen racist by avoiding blacks or chatting with one while the one behind attacked them.

    Interesting that THE MEN OF UNZ who constantly post “ avoid the groid ” “ always carry” “ call police scream fight when approached by a black “ “ situational awareness” are as per usual rejoicing when a White woman is harmed after a confrontation with a black.

    Calling police when a black man approaches a lone woman is the epitome of the situational awareness the White woman hating White men of UNZ always preach. A lone White woman did this and the White woman hating Men of UNZ attack her exactly as the blacks and liberals did.

    This story is a wonderful train wreck of stereotypes.
    The white woman is doing what blacks usually do (though she would never admit that they do it) - violating public rules of etiquette (letting her dog off leash). The black guy is doing what white women usually do - calling this out and demanding that public etiquette be upheld (doing this not because he cares about the etiquette but because he sees a chance to stick it to whitey). The liberal black-loving white woman is naturally, and rightly, afraid of all black males in Central Park and calls the police. She will never admit to herself that she fears him because he is black, but at the same time cannot help emphasizing "African American" in her police call.
    The black-loving liberal Democrat Karen will now be buried in a grave marked "racist scum" on internet boot hill.

    Adrienne would be one of those actresses who would have never jumped on the "metoo" bandwagon, since she benefitted too much by laying down, and thinking of Brooklyn. Many actresses like her. She’s not a special case, but it’s something worth remembering.

    Reminds me of Tom Lehrer’s song “Poisoning Pigeons in the Park.”

    So it disproportionately affects pedophiles?

    One thing to note is that all ten countries are European.

    What are the odds? (And yes, I’m counting the USA as nominally Euro-descended, for a few more years yet.) Unlike many here, I’m quite convinced that the CoV made the leap from animals to humans in the wet market in Wuhan, due primarily to the Chinese people’s barbaric practices of animal torture, storage and consumption. Not in a lab sponsored by whichever bogeyman one prefers.

    But. Given how malevolent–in addition to primitive–the Chinese are in so many regards, and given the virus’s unusual preference for white flesh, one may be excused for a certain degree of suspicion.
