From the New York Times opinion columnist Charles Blow:

How White Women Use Themselves as Instruments of Terror

There are too many noosed necks, charred bodies and drowned souls for them to deny knowing precisely what they are doing.

By Charles M. Blow, Opinion Columnist, May 27, 2020, 10:11 p.m. ET

At a time of so much death and suffering in this country and around the world from the Covid-19 pandemic, it can be easy, I suppose, to take any incidents that don’t result in death as minor occurrences.

But they aren’t. The continued public assault on black people, particularly black men, by the white public and by the police predates the pandemic and will outlast it. This racial street theater against black people is an endemic, primal feature of the Republic.

Specifically, I am enraged by white women weaponizing racial anxiety, using their white femininity to activate systems of white terror against black men. This has long been a power white women realized they had and that they exerted.

This was again evident when a white woman in New York’s Central Park told a black man, a bird-watcher, that she was going to call the police and tell them that he was threatening her life.

This was not innocent nor benign nor divorced from historical context. Throughout history, white women have used the violence of white men and the institutions these men control as their own muscle.

From the beginning, anti-black white terrorists used the defense of white women and white purity as a way to wrap violence in valor. Carnage became chivalry.

We often like to make white supremacy a testosterone-fueled masculine expression, but it is just as likely to wear heels as a hood.

Particularly in the post-Civil War era, when slavery had been undone, white male politicians used the fear of rape of white women by black men to codify racial terror.

As the author and scholar Rebecca Edwards has pointed out in her book “Angels in the Machinery: Gender in American Party Politics From the Civil War to the Progressive Era,” white politicians have long focused their furor by claiming to be the defenders of white women, a last guard against their suffering.

… The torture and murder of 14-year-old Emmett Till in 1955, a lynching actually, occurred because a white woman said that he “grabbed her and was menacing and sexually crude toward her.” His torturers beat him, shot him in the head and tossed his body into the Tallahatchie River tied to a cotton gin fan with barbed wire. A few years ago, the woman admitted to an author that she had lied.

In 2020, we constantly are told about what a white woman did to Emmett Till 65 years ago, but how often are we informed of what Emmett’s war criminal father Louis Till did to three white Italian women 75 years ago: rape two and murder a third?

Why the enormous disparity in news coverage in 2020 of these two very old news stories involving the interactions between white females and one family’s black males?

… This practice, this exercise in racial extremism, has been dragged into the modern era through the weaponizing of 911, often by white women, to invoke the power and force of the police who they are fully aware are hostile to black men.

In a disturbing number of the recent cases of the police being called on black people for doing everyday, mundane things, the calls have been initiated by white women.

And understand this: Black people view calling the police on them as an act of terror, one that could threaten their lives, and this fear is not without merit.

There are too many noosed necks, charred bodies and drowned souls for these white women not to know precisely what they are doing: They are using their white femininity as an instrument of terror against black men.

Also, white women, vote Democratic in 2020! The Democrats are on your side.

    That's not true . In 1984 I was waiting for a ship in Bayonne , NJ . I spent the two or three weeks running into the Lower East side buying heroin and shooting that shit in stairwells and strangers apts in the public housing projects east of Alphabet city . So finally I got a ship . I went up the gangway and picked a fight with the girl who happened to be on watch at the time . She was straight white girl from a working class family in Boston . A graduate of a certain Maritime Academy with a Third Mates License but as there were no mates jobs available at that time she was sailing as an AB . We became friends and that girl saved my life . The basic urge of some women is to nurture . She moved back to Boston because of a family tragedy to be with her father . An American hero not for any specific heroic deed but just the way he lived his life in the face of great adversity . I followed her as I had no direction . All her life she had done the things that we are all told will lead to success . She got an MBA went to work for a company in Boston where she did great service . The economy crashed in Mass after Dukakis lost the election . She found work at another company in the same field as a customer service rep . The only one , where she made as many sales as the salesmen . At one point she began receiving anonymous sexually inappropriate phone calls from someone . She figured out pretty quick who it was , a major customer in Texas . The idea of suing never entered her mind , she put the company first and went to the boss who made a phone call . Later she met a great guy , when she introduced me to him and we met as soon as I shook his hand I sensed that he was right for her and he has been . They are still married with two children all these years later , although I can't deny he is a bit of a nut in a good way . Well time passed and we have always stayed in touch . Now due to the economy and the costs of two kids in college they are struggling . I didn't mention that he made enough that she could be a stay at home mom when the kids were little . I won't go into the tragedy of the unnecessary loss of a perfectly healthy new born . But she always perseveres in the face of adversity as Fred taught her to . So anyway here we are now and I who have only excelled at f**king up have inherited enough money to see me out in the style I have become accustomed to . So my friend with a big expensive house to maintain and two kids in college (which I disapprove of) is struggling financially . So I had in my endless spare time seen some videos about the Shepard's Sling . Fascinating you know all the ancient Mediterranean powers hired Baleric Slingers as mercenaries . Anyway , I mentioned this to my 58 y/o female friend who expressed no interest . I even bought her one from Amazon . But still she showed no interest . Now this is a female type personnel who when she had reason to believe that when her family might be in danger didn't hesitate to go out and buy a gun and take classes to learn how to use it with the intention to kill to defend her family . So after some time and I got my (undeserved) money and offered her a deal . If she could hit a plate sized target from 20 feet 60% of the time I would give her $1500 . Well she got right on that shit . So tonight we were on the phone while she was practicing . She has the plate nailed to a large wooden backboard . Man she only hit the edge of the plate once but when she hits the wooden backboard what a crack , like a gunshot . Even when the stone misses the backboard entirely and hits a tree another ten feet beyond it sounds like a gunshot . We both agreed a very gratifying sound . Man my 58 y/o female friend has been misjudged by more than one man but not by me . I know I'll be writing a check within two months . She is going to havec to send me video proof and I will share it with yo when she does .

    If you go by a large percentage of the commenters right here, a lot.

    OK, joking aside, this is gonna get real dangerous real fast. The Karen meme (which, mystifyingly, is enthusiastically deployed by pseudo-conservatives such as Charlotte Allen) is going to cause violence. It's here, being used, in Newsweek. Now, I get that Newsweek isn't what it used to be, but I offer it because it's an example of how a stereotype becomes acceptable discourse. It will lead to violence. By which I mean more than what you cited.

    Yes, a white women calling the police because a black birdwatcher -how many black males are birdwatchers are opposed to violent and/or recidivist criminals?- is a an act of "terror," more terroristic and odious than the Wichita Massacre and the Knoxville horror and myriads of other rapes and gang-rapes, aggravated assaults, acts of torture, and murders committed by black men against white females since Emmet Till was murdered over 75 years ago because he harassed and molested a white man's wife. Acts of terror, brutality, sadism, and depravity committed by whites against black men and women are now so rare and have been so for decades that white-hating liars and demagogue like Blow and his ilk must constantly and ubiquitously evoke the ghost of poor innocent Emmet Till.

    The Left is actively rooting for the destruction of Black America.

    They’re not even concealing it.
     
    With an average IQ of 85, half of the Black p0pulation cannot do anything useful in an industrial society, and can't understand why they cannot do anything useful. Half of the Black population (IQ>85) have, since Civil Rights, found their intelligence useless -- for Blacks after Civil Rights there is no correlation between IQ and income, and this causes a certain amount of dissatisfaction. This is the objective meaning of the "Systematic White Racism" complaint: Blacks as a group cannot participate in an industrial society, so an industrial society (invented by Whites back in the 1800s) is intrisically systematic racist. The Blacks are quite correct in their contention, although they don't understand why, nor do they care -- they just want industrial society to go away. c.f. the former Rhodesia.

    The Left realizes these things, sees the offensive capability of the Blacks, and for quite some time has been treating the Blacks as shock troops. The Left is quite willing for the Blacks to suffer enormous casualties, and perhaps tells itself that the casualties would happen anyway. Even back in the 1960s, Tom Wolfe pointed out that when a shot is fired, the Left wants a non-white finger to pull the trigger.

    Wolfe's statement was in regard to an East Asian gang that flatly refused to be co-opted by a Leftist group. However, the typical Asian, East or West, dislikes the West, and can be used as the Blacks are, although more in a "marching through the institutions" role.

    As usual with the Left (which has failed every time it succeeded in gaining control of a government), the Left believes that it can clean up any messes later. So far, the Left has always been wrong, but that doesn't seem to slow them down.

    It's situations like the above that makes one consider Dutton's idea that the Left is the party of high mutational load, or the conjecture that the Left itself dislikes industrial society, not loving the poor, not even hating the rich, but hating a society it doesn't understand and can't participate in except as enemies.

    And perhaps industrial society will vanish as it has in the former Rhodesia. It' an evolutionary strategy, and those eventually fail. Industrial society could fail and vanish over the next few decades.

    White women aren't going to change how they vote. They desperately want to be a "good person" in the eyes of society. Accusing them of anything will only cause them to double down on their concessions. They will now virtue signal even harder.

    1. Because it’s irrelevant to what happened to Emmett Till (what, were the guys who lynched him trying to avenge those Italian women?)

    You are missing the point.

    Emmett Till is the patron saint of the SJW movement because his 1955 murder somehow supposedly shows that the biggest problem in 2020 America is white women lying about black men, and white men committing violence against black men. The idea that anyone should be afraid of actually getting raped or murdered by a black man is portrayed as a racist myth.

    Steve's point is that the NYT and its ilk promote this SJW worldview by obsessing over Emmett's case from 65-years ago while ignoring the thousands and thousands of counter-examples of actual rape and murder by blacks.

    The counter-example of Emmett's own rapist-murderer father just happens to be a rather obvious counter-example from the same family. Heck, in the battle of white people vs. the Till family, the Tills are still ahead on points: the score is one murder vs. one murder and two rapes.

    Btw, it's a flat out lie that the woman recanted her allegations. That was B.S. made up by a guy who was trying to sell a book. Zero corroboration and no credibility for that alleged hearsay statement. The NYT regularly repeats it as fact, however. The very definition of fake news.

  12. At a time of so much death and suffering in this country and around the world from the Covid-19 pandemic, it can be easy, I suppose, to take any incidents that don’t result in death as minor occurrences.

    Let’s see, gotta make some kind of reference to the whole virus thing…..Should I call it Coronavirus or Covid-19? Maybe the novel coronavirus?

    But they aren’t. The continued public assault on black people, particularly black men, by the white public and by the police predates

    Wait, was that Zimmerman/nn (gotta check the spelling) guy White? Or maybe it was some kind of weird “White Hispanic” thing…..Screw it….Make it vague, non-specific….

    the pandemic and will outlast it. This racial street theater against black people is an endemic,

    Yea, good, run with the contagion metaphor….Except, which is worse, an epidemic or a pandemic? Who’s the science editor at the NYTIMES?

    primal feature of the Republic.

    Nice, subtle….Republic=Republicans…….

    Specifically, I am enraged by white women weaponizing racial anxiety,

    using their white femininity

    activate systems of white terror against black men.

    This has long been a power white women realized they had and that they exerted.

    MMMM, maybe I’m using “white” a bit too much….Nah, let the editor at the NYTIMES make the call (They’ve still got those, right?)

    This was again evident when a white woman in New York’s Central Park told a black man, a bird-watcher, that she was going to call the police and tell them that he was threatening her life.

    This was not innocent nor benign nor divorced from historical context. Throughout history, white women have used the violence of white men and the institutions these men control as their own muscle.

    Wait, am I implying that White women are pulling the strings in America? Is that anti-feminist? Could I get cancelled? Nah, I’ll be OK…..I’m just talking about White women, and I’m a Bisexual Black man….Progressive Stack’s on my side….

    From the beginning, anti-black white terrorists used the defense of white women and white purity as a way to wrap violence in valor. Carnage became chivalry.

    Or maybe chivalry became carnage makes more sense……Gotta talk to an editor….

    We often like to make white supremacy a testosterone-fueled masculine expression, but it is just as likely to wear heels as a hood.

    Man, it’s a good thing that I’m a Bisexual Black man…..Otherwise, I might get in trouble….

    In the past week in Nashville a white couple Kevin and LeAnn Craft were attacked by a black man with a machete at a downtown storage facility’s office. Kelvin Edwards almost killed them. They are fighting for their lives at Vanderbilt. Edwards was mad about the Union Rescue Mission being full.

    Metro Nashville Officer Darrell Osment, walking his dog in near Nashville, says hello to the passing motorist William Johnston Jr, a black man, who lets Osment pass and then shoots him from his vehicle. He shoots at Osment while he is on the ground, missing, and drives off. Osment notifies the police and they catch up with Johnston in Nashville. A gunfight ensues. About 50 shots later Johnston is dead. One of the police officers in the gunfight was a black man, doing the most unpleasant part of his job. Johnston is dead.

    An 80 something year old couple is shot and killed at a Delaware cemetary by a black man, Sheldon C. Francis. They were visiting their deceased sons grave. No motive ascertianed.

    These are fresh incidents less than 2 weeks old Charles Blow. Nobody wants to kill innocent black Americans. The D.A.s will review the cases and file charges. I hope Im wrong but George Floyd probably did have something medically happening while being subdued. The cops called the ambulance for him. They noticed it to. Its not like those four policeman woke up that morning and said to themselves, “lets whoop up on a detainee really bad today so that he dies and we can get charged with murder.” Those cops are probably heartsick.

    “Those cops....” may well regret their actions now. However, I should think that they heartily regret (if they were) being trained by the Israeli army to kneel on a prone arrestees neck. The Minneapolis police do train with Israeli forces in Israel and are taught there to view dark skinned people as animals whose lives are of little account.If Americans want their badly recruited police to be trained by racist killers they simply must be prepared to handle the fall out of it. Unless Americans find the fortitude to rid themselves of this pernicious influence upon their nation both in the halls of government and within the forces of order this sort of thing will continue.

    That matches my read in Oregon. Even lifelong Democrats are well aware that one party really wuvs the lockdowns and tell me they will vote Repub or just stay home on Nov. 3. Not that it matters - Creepy Sleepy Joe will win here 55-45, regardless.

    Also, since many businesses reopened here, every employee explaining or apologizing for whatever useless kabuki they require has attributed it to the lockdown or government orders, not to a virus. No exceptions. It appears the fakestream media incessantly blaming every negative consequence on covums has not worked, likely because young people rarely see TV ads and get all their news from the web.

  23. NYT: How White Women Use Themselves as Instruments of Terror

    ………Hey, wait a minute, where’s everyone going?

  24. @JSQ

    In 2020, we constantly are told about what a white woman did to Emmett Till 65 years ago, but how often are we informed of what Emmett’s war criminal father Louis Till did to three white Italian women 75 years ago: rape two and murder a third?
     
    1. Because it's irrelevant to what happened to Emmett Till (what, were the guys who lynched him trying to avenge those Italian women?)

    2. Because Till's father was executed for his crime, whereas Till's murderers were exonerated for theirs. Justice was served in one case but not the other.

    Replies: @Hypnotoad666, @Tlotsi

    You are missing the point.

    Emmett Till is the patron saint of the SJW movement because his 1955 murder somehow supposedly shows that the biggest problem in 2020 America is white women lying about black men, and white men committing violence against black men. The idea that anyone should be afraid of actually getting raped or murdered by a black man is portrayed as a racist myth.

    Steve’s point is that the NYT and its ilk promote this SJW worldview by obsessing over Emmett’s case from 65-years ago while ignoring the thousands and thousands of counter-examples of actual rape and murder by blacks.

    The counter-example of Emmett’s own rapist-murderer father just happens to be a rather obvious counter-example from the same family. Heck, in the battle of white people vs. the Till family, the Tills are still ahead on points: the score is one murder vs. one murder and two rapes.

    Btw, it’s a flat out lie that the woman recanted her allegations. That was B.S. made up by a guy who was trying to sell a book. Zero corroboration and no credibility for that alleged hearsay statement. The NYT regularly repeats it as fact, however. The very definition of fake news.

    Exactly.

    The was SJW "reporter" Timothy Tyson badgering an elderly widow to say what he wants for his approval. And even that--absolutely no record of it, just his say so.

    But at the time, whatever Till did, Carolyn Bryant was worried enough about it, that once Till left, she went to her car and got her handgun. Obviously whatever he did--and whatever we think about it now--had her concerned back then.

    The social standards necessary to operate a country store in the middle of the boonies in Mississippi in 1955 aren't to everyone's taste. But then again most of those people so sure that those standards are evil and "racist!" aren't trying to operate a country store where their wife is going to be off alone in the country.

    The convicted Black rapist Eldridge Cleaver would beg to differ with the SJW/progressive assessment of this matter...

    'I know that the black man's sick attitude toward the white woman is a revolutionary sickness: it keeps him perpetually out of harmony with the system that is oppressing him. Many whites flatter themselves with the idea that the Negro male's lust and desire for the white dream girl is purely an esthetic attraction, but nothing could be further from the truth. His motivation is often of such a bloody, hateful, bitter, and malignant nature that whites would really be hard pressed to find it flattering.'

    Who is saying that? Of course there are circumstances under which it's justifiable to be afraid of a black man; an argument over dog leashing with mild-mannered, obviously gay black birdwatcher isn't one of them. The point of all these incidents is that white people can unjustly harass and antagonize (and even kill) black people and get away with it. That's the difference between all the crap "Paul Kersey" posts and incidents like Emmett Till; Kersey's stories almost invariably result in an arrest and life sentence, whereas Till's murder did not. I know that many iSteve readers now seem to be taking the position that Till did grab Bryant and thus deserved to be lynched, but in the real world that's a fringe view, to say the least of it (especially since his murderers admitted that the main reason they did it was to make an example of him).

  25. Oh man, the fight between Feminazis and SuperNegros now heating up.

    SuperNegroes throwing bombs at Karens—in an election year where ORANGE MAN MUST BE STOPPED—for the Dog Leash Dispute Heard ‘Round the World—is a fight the Left cannot afford if they want a chance in the fall.

    It’s bad enough for the Globalists that Biden is telling blacks who is and isn’t black. But now the blacks are turning on white liberal ladies….

    All Trump needs is a white lefty lady falsely accusing a black of rape and this is all going to bust up. For example, what if Cosby managed to get his case overturned on appeal (that trial was rigged, regardless of what you think)? Or he gets some surrogates to write pieces extolling his innocence, as Matt Lauer did recently, and #MeToo gets torn asunder by #BlackLivesMatter.

    Then if Biden picks a black for VP, Karens stay home or vote R. ANd if Biden picks a Karen, blacks stay home.

    Oh man we can only hope it gets that good.

  26. Even taking into account how crazy the NYT has become in the past 8 years, I think it is mind-blowing they published an op-Ed that smeared every white woman as a “instrument of terror.” They would obviously never do this for, say, Muslim men of fighting age. All because one woman felt threatened after a black guy threatened her. Shouldn’t cooler heads prevail over at the Grey Lady? The real question is how many white women are going to continue to support the SJW agenda that has now labeled them as terrorists.

    That’s not true . In 1984 I was waiting for a ship in Bayonne , NJ . I spent the two or three weeks running into the Lower East side buying heroin and shooting that shit in stairwells and strangers apts in the public housing projects east of Alphabet city . So finally I got a ship . I went up the gangway and picked a fight with the girl who happened to be on watch at the time . She was straight white girl from a working class family in Boston . A graduate of a certain Maritime Academy with a Third Mates License but as there were no mates jobs available at that time she was sailing as an AB . We became friends and that girl saved my life . The basic urge of some women is to nurture . She moved back to Boston because of a family tragedy to be with her father . An American hero not for any specific heroic deed but just the way he lived his life in the face of great adversity . I followed her as I had no direction . All her life she had done the things that we are all told will lead to success . She got an MBA went to work for a company in Boston where she did great service . The economy crashed in Mass after Dukakis lost the election . She found work at another company in the same field as a customer service rep . The only one , where she made as many sales as the salesmen . At one point she began receiving anonymous sexually inappropriate phone calls from someone . She figured out pretty quick who it was , a major customer in Texas . The idea of suing never entered her mind , she put the company first and went to the boss who made a phone call . Later she met a great guy , when she introduced me to him and we met as soon as I shook his hand I sensed that he was right for her and he has been . They are still married with two children all these years later , although I can’t deny he is a bit of a nut in a good way . Well time passed and we have always stayed in touch . Now due to the economy and the costs of two kids in college they are struggling . I didn’t mention that he made enough that she could be a stay at home mom when the kids were little . I won’t go into the tragedy of the unnecessary loss of a perfectly healthy new born . But she always perseveres in the face of adversity as Fred taught her to . So anyway here we are now and I who have only excelled at f**king up have inherited enough money to see me out in the style I have become accustomed to . So my friend with a big expensive house to maintain and two kids in college (which I disapprove of) is struggling financially . So I had in my endless spare time seen some videos about the Shepard’s Sling . Fascinating you know all the ancient Mediterranean powers hired Baleric Slingers as mercenaries . Anyway , I mentioned this to my 58 y/o female friend who expressed no interest . I even bought her one from Amazon . But still she showed no interest . Now this is a female type personnel who when she had reason to believe that when her family might be in danger didn’t hesitate to go out and buy a gun and take classes to learn how to use it with the intention to kill to defend her family . So after some time and I got my (undeserved) money and offered her a deal . If she could hit a plate sized target from 20 feet 60% of the time I would give her $1500 . Well she got right on that shit . So tonight we were on the phone while she was practicing . She has the plate nailed to a large wooden backboard . Man she only hit the edge of the plate once but when she hits the wooden backboard what a crack , like a gunshot . Even when the stone misses the backboard entirely and hits a tree another ten feet beyond it sounds like a gunshot . We both agreed a very gratifying sound . Man my 58 y/o female friend has been misjudged by more than one man but not by me . I know I’ll be writing a check within two months . She is going to havec to send me video proof and I will share it with yo when she does .

    Paragraphs, dog. Paragraphs.

    Before you start, you should give an introduction. Then for a long comment you should do like so;

    That is a ‘MORE’ tag. It prevents the rest of your post from being visible to people who don’t click the tag. It is located at the top right side of the comment box, to the rights of the ‘Blockquote’ option. You should use a ‘MORE’ tag for long comments, especially if they are off topic, which you story may or may not be. I didn’t read because it was in the format called ‘a wall of text.’ Most people don’t read them for various reasons.

    Divide your story into pieces arranged in an a logical order. These are called ‘paragraphs.’ Since your relaying a story, it should probably be organized by order of events. For example, give her background, then do this:

    See that? I pressed the return key on my iPad, and it moved to the line. Then I pressed it again, and it moved down a line. After doing that, you start relaying events.

    First event, then you’d describe the beginning of the interesting story your relaying. For example. ‘This woman encountered a man’, and you describe the beginning of the encounter, and start a new paragraph. See above for how to do this:

    Here we are at our next paragraph. Because this is the internet, and there is no reason to save on paper, you might break up be each event. Perhaps in this organizational style;

    Man did xsub1. Woman did ysub1 in response.

    Man did xsub2. Woman did ysub2 in response.

    Or you might break it down with more events and possibly commentary on said events, but these events should only be grouped together if they have a reasonable division from subsequent events.

    Then you end the story with a conclusion. The conclusion should be in a new paragraph.

    It perhaps goes without saying that the story should be jermain to the subject of the blog post, or you can use the abbreviation ‘OT’ for ‘off topic’ for a story you think would be interesting to the blogger.

    No need to thank me. I’m happy to help.

    Fact is they keep going back to Till, because it's basically all they've got. Whereas serious violent--sometimes sadistically violent--black hate crimes against whites pop up regularly.

    The Left is actively rooting for the destruction of Black America.

    They’re not even concealing it.

    With an average IQ of 85, half of the Black p0pulation cannot do anything useful in an industrial society, and can’t understand why they cannot do anything useful. Half of the Black population (IQ>85) have, since Civil Rights, found their intelligence useless — for Blacks after Civil Rights there is no correlation between IQ and income, and this causes a certain amount of dissatisfaction. This is the objective meaning of the “Systematic White Racism” complaint: Blacks as a group cannot participate in an industrial society, so an industrial society (invented by Whites back in the 1800s) is intrisically systematic racist. The Blacks are quite correct in their contention, although they don’t understand why, nor do they care — they just want industrial society to go away. c.f. the former Rhodesia.

    The Left realizes these things, sees the offensive capability of the Blacks, and for quite some time has been treating the Blacks as shock troops. The Left is quite willing for the Blacks to suffer enormous casualties, and perhaps tells itself that the casualties would happen anyway. Even back in the 1960s, Tom Wolfe pointed out that when a shot is fired, the Left wants a non-white finger to pull the trigger.

    Wolfe’s statement was in regard to an East Asian gang that flatly refused to be co-opted by a Leftist group. However, the typical Asian, East or West, dislikes the West, and can be used as the Blacks are, although more in a “marching through the institutions” role.

    As usual with the Left (which has failed every time it succeeded in gaining control of a government), the Left believes that it can clean up any messes later. So far, the Left has always been wrong, but that doesn’t seem to slow them down.

    It’s situations like the above that makes one consider Dutton’s idea that the Left is the party of high mutational load, or the conjecture that the Left itself dislikes industrial society, not loving the poor, not even hating the rich, but hating a society it doesn’t understand and can’t participate in except as enemies.

    And perhaps industrial society will vanish as it has in the former Rhodesia. It’ an evolutionary strategy, and those eventually fail. Industrial society could fail and vanish over the next few decades.

    Now you sound like Charles Blow. There is no "terror" against blacks in America and there is no terror against Karens either. Just because "Karens" are being called out on their bad behavior doesn't mean that they are going to be targeted for physical violence. Are Karens supposed to be like black people, where you are never allowed to call the cops on them because of what might happen when you do? Even in the case of this particular Karen, who is now the hate object of millions, no one has physically touched a hair on her head and the only one who did any violence to her dog baby was Karen herself.

    Calling out Karen is good, because it might cause Karen to reconsider whether she really is as special as she thinks she is. Karens don't need much prompting to imagine that they are being threatened but if the "threats" are coming from all directions then maybe Karen will reconsider whether SHE is the one who has to adjust HER behavior. (Getting blacks to consider whether the bad things that happen to them is in part caused by their own behavior is a lost cause, but there is hope for Karens). I'll bet Amy Cooper has been doing some soul searching and will never again be the Karen she once was.

    Q: Why do you think that the left is about to collapse, when they have the universities and the media solidly behind them?
     
    A: (from a different Anonymous):

    The Left is an emergent phenomenon of urban living. No urban, no Left. Urban areas now run an economic deficit, a big one, and their populations cannot become productive -- too dumb, too crazy (See Dutton, _How to Judge People_, which is on the asymmetry of features caused by high mutational load). Young people are fleeing the city if they can hold a telecommute job, as are the rich if they can, and the businesses if they can. These groups are unlikely to return. The cities are falling, being replaced by geographically distributed networks.

    The Universities are now in serious trouble (as is public education in general). Their latest move, canceling University and sending the students home while continuing to charge full tuition/housing costs, has made those paying less likely to believe in a positive return from such obviously faithless institutions. Further, the inept COVID-19 models, worsened by clearly fraudulent claims of accuracy (and I speak here as a person who has made several involved simulation models), have discredited science and modeling among the general public. The Universities are not the assets they once were.

    The mass media has discredited itself. When POTUS Trump successfully defeated legal assaults and it was demonstrated that Flynn had been the victim of malicious prosecution, the media (and Deep State) were demonstrated to be a threat to the general public. When the news media gave destructive advice over COVID-19, the perception of a media threat to the general public was heightened.

    Further: The countryside has elected Trump. The Left, as per its SOP, attacked, only this time ineptly. They discredited their mass media -- a highly significant loss. They left a paper trail that connected their leading members to criminal acts. They left Trump with two alternatives: defeat the Deep State or be destroyed (with his family) after he leaves office. Trump is now actively trying to defeat the Deep State. The Left now has a powerful enemy with backing from the only economically viable part of the US.

    The Deep State's counter is apparently to make gainful employment (or even leaving one's house) illegal in States governed by Democrats. This is coupled with an attempt to increase the fraction of counted votes that are fraudulent. Both moves are astonishingly inept, both have been detected and widely disseminated in non-Left media, so both are unlikely to succeed, but likely to depress Democratic (Left) votes. The Left has lost its ability impose a very low fidelity consensus reality by out-thinking its rivals, and in any case could not disseminate its "political reality" over a threatening media.

    Even some of the Left is becoming frightened by its recent actions. They know that every successful revolution entails, at some point, the elimination of its supporters who do not have a record of blind loyalty to the controlling group of the Revolution, and that much the same can be said for Counter-revolutions. Many on the Left feel vulnerable, and for good reason.

    Finally, the POC part of the Left's coalition (a very large part) have successfully transformed the public opinion of themselves from "persecuted saints" to "active threats", threats both to the Whites and to each other. It is unlikely that they can be unified behind any sort of leadership -- each of the POC wants a leadership composed solely of its own ethnic group, and actively fights leadership from other POC groups.


    So: the Left is in serious trouble. It might not collapse, but is foundations are seriously eroded. At one point the Japanese constructed buildings so strong that they could not be damaged by earthquakes. When the earthquakes hit, the building foundations fluidized and the buildings settled unevenly, giving floors about 35 degrees off horizontal. At best, that is what has happened to the Left. Like the tilted buildings, it is now an uninhabitable monument to folly that will take some time to weather down to a debris field.

    The universities, largely, are in the process of collapse. The Ivies will be fine, along with some big state schools. Any place dependent on tuition is going to crash. It's so bad, one place with which I am familiar is actually cutting ADMIN salaries.

    The media have also shot their wad in this. All it would take to kill most of it would be an FCC order that cable companies allow a la carte pricing for TV channels, in which case MSNBC, CNN, and Fox would lose the mulcted dollars of right and left, respectively. My guess: there's less demand for CNN and MSNBC among willing payers. Cut off the money from people who CNN hates on every day, and they're toast.

    https://www.thewrap.com/cable-network-carriage-fees/
    That article from a few years back says the monthly subscriber fee for CNN is $.60. If 10,000,000 conservatives drop the channel, that's a loss of $72MM annually. They would not survive. More recent estimates are 7-8$ annually per subscriber, again in the same ballpark. If not offered the chance to choose, a lot of people just cut the cord. Ask anyone in media.

    You are missing the point.

    Emmett Till is the patron saint of the SJW movement because his 1955 murder somehow supposedly shows that the biggest problem in 2020 America is white women lying about black men, and white men committing violence against black men. The idea that anyone should be afraid of actually getting raped or murdered by a black man is portrayed as a racist myth.

    Steve's point is that the NYT and its ilk promote this SJW worldview by obsessing over Emmett's case from 65-years ago while ignoring the thousands and thousands of counter-examples of actual rape and murder by blacks.

    The counter-example of Emmett's own rapist-murderer father just happens to be a rather obvious counter-example from the same family. Heck, in the battle of white people vs. the Till family, the Tills are still ahead on points: the score is one murder vs. one murder and two rapes.

    Btw, it's a flat out lie that the woman recanted her allegations. That was B.S. made up by a guy who was trying to sell a book. Zero corroboration and no credibility for that alleged hearsay statement. The NYT regularly repeats it as fact, however. The very definition of fake news.

    No, there are plenty of other examples of black men or boys killed. The interesting thing to me is the Michael Brown/Tamir Rice dichotomy. One attacked a cop, charged the same man, and was dispatched, yet inspired a whole mythology around "hands up, don't shoot," and was the main event in Black Lives Matter. The other was a 12 year old kid sitting on a bench who was blown away within I think two seconds of the police car arriving. The cop in the first case was harassed out of his job; the cop in the second case was eventually fired.

    Compare Philando Castile, the "poor driving but not violent" black man assassinated by a cop, with this case, where I don't think people have made the claim that George Floyd was not being arrested on a real crime. Both in Minnesota. The police officer in the Castile case was not immediately fired, and was offered a buyout of tens of thousands of dollars:
    https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2017/07/11/cop-who-killed-philando-castile-paid-48-500-buyout/466918001/

    Meanwhile, the four officers in Minneapolis have been fired, likely with no buyout.

    It seems like the only cases that blow up are when the rioters want to make a stink about someone who was clearly engaged in wrongdoing (but, nonviolent. George Floyd was a forger, and Eric Garner was selling loose cigarettes), rather than clear cases of police killing of innocents. The war isn't on police misconduct, but it seems on police conduct.

    I suppose white men have been so thoroughly beat down and downtrodden that any further vilification and attacks risks becoming a cliche, so they’ve moved into white women as the next step of the anti-white agenda.

  68. Throughout history, white women have used the violence of white men and the institutions these men control as their own muscle.

    Well, since the NYC police force is now only 45% white at the street cop level, she had a 50/50 chance of controlling some white muscle. 30% are Hispanic, 9% Asian, 15% black. So it’s about even-stevens for at least one non-white cop to show up. But Blow is presenting the usual nonsense idea that cops are 110% white guys.

    You are missing the point.

    Emmett Till is the patron saint of the SJW movement because his 1955 murder somehow supposedly shows that the biggest problem in 2020 America is white women lying about black men, and white men committing violence against black men. The idea that anyone should be afraid of actually getting raped or murdered by a black man is portrayed as a racist myth.

    Steve's point is that the NYT and its ilk promote this SJW worldview by obsessing over Emmett's case from 65-years ago while ignoring the thousands and thousands of counter-examples of actual rape and murder by blacks.

    The counter-example of Emmett's own rapist-murderer father just happens to be a rather obvious counter-example from the same family. Heck, in the battle of white people vs. the Till family, the Tills are still ahead on points: the score is one murder vs. one murder and two rapes.

    Btw, it's a flat out lie that the woman recanted her allegations. That was B.S. made up by a guy who was trying to sell a book. Zero corroboration and no credibility for that alleged hearsay statement. The NYT regularly repeats it as fact, however. The very definition of fake news.

    Exactly.

    The was SJW “reporter” Timothy Tyson badgering an elderly widow to say what he wants for his approval. And even that–absolutely no record of it, just his say so.

    But at the time, whatever Till did, Carolyn Bryant was worried enough about it, that once Till left, she went to her car and got her handgun. Obviously whatever he did–and whatever we think about it now–had her concerned back then.

    The social standards necessary to operate a country store in the middle of the boonies in Mississippi in 1955 aren’t to everyone’s taste. But then again most of those people so sure that those standards are evil and “racist!” aren’t trying to operate a country store where their wife is going to be off alone in the country.

    The convicted Black rapist Eldridge Cleaver would beg to differ with the SJW/progressive assessment of this matter…

    I know that the black man’s sick attitude toward the white woman is a revolutionary sickness: it keeps him perpetually out of harmony with the system that is oppressing him. Many whites flatter themselves with the idea that the Negro male’s lust and desire for the white dream girl is purely an esthetic attraction, but nothing could be further from the truth. His motivation is often of such a bloody, hateful, bitter, and malignant nature that whites would really be hard pressed to find it flattering.’ Eldridge Cleaver (2015). “Target Zero: A Life in Writing”, p.49, Macmillan

    Now you sound like Charles Blow. There is no “terror” against blacks in America and there is no terror against Karens either. Just because “Karens” are being called out on their bad behavior doesn’t mean that they are going to be targeted for physical violence. Are Karens supposed to be like black people, where you are never allowed to call the cops on them because of what might happen when you do? Even in the case of this particular Karen, who is now the hate object of millions, no one has physically touched a hair on her head and the only one who did any violence to her dog baby was Karen herself.

    Calling out Karen is good, because it might cause Karen to reconsider whether she really is as special as she thinks she is. Karens don’t need much prompting to imagine that they are being threatened but if the “threats” are coming from all directions then maybe Karen will reconsider whether SHE is the one who has to adjust HER behavior. (Getting blacks to consider whether the bad things that happen to them is in part caused by their own behavior is a lost cause, but there is hope for Karens). I’ll bet Amy Cooper has been doing some soul searching and will never again be the Karen she once was.

  81. I’ve looked into many of those charred bodies and noosed neck stories, and the newspaper accounts from the time differ significantly from the rehashed and reinterpreted retrospectives.

    I found where a woman from East Texas was brought to view a lineup of Negroes on three occasions attempting to identify the individual responsible for outraging her; once traveling by train to Dallas. I never discovered if the culprit was ever located, but those in the lineups were all released.

    An infamous occurrence in Paris, Texas where a Negro was incinerated in a most brutal and tortuous fashion, was instigated by the rape and murder of a three year old girl.

    I first became aware of this case about 12 years ago, when I found an account published in the Johnson County Review. There was a large amount of detail contained in the article about how Smith was executed, but very little about what brought him to his fate.

    I recently decided to look into the matter again, and I found some additional information about what Smith had actually done and the strength of the case against him.

    I found this tidbit on a message board on ancestry.com:

    “The library of congress has much information. Some of what’s been left out in the linked story is that Henry Smith had been seen carrying the girl by several people. When questioned at that time he stated he was “taking the girl to the Doctor for her mother”. The next morning when she was found RAPED and murdered his hat was found there. The same hat he mentioned when he confessed to the crime. The confession is an awful read. When he is asked, “How did you kill the child?” Henry Smith states “I sat down by a tree and I drew it to me like I would a boot”. Captors “Did she cry?” Henry Smith “Yes, a little, but I put my hand over its mouth so it could not cry much” “Well, when I found I could not draw it on me, I took my hands and tore it open, and then I drew it on me”. An autopsy was done. The Doctor writes about the horrific tearing of the girl genitalia.” – https://www.ancestry.com/boards/thread.aspx?mv=flat&m=3137&p=surnames.vance

    The following link is to a webpage that contains a photocopy of a manuscript that was published shortly after the incident occurred. It contains some very interesting commentary from the citizens of Texas and other States weighing in on the matter. Some of the comments coming from the Northern States (pages 120-121 and 131 -133) makes one wonder if their current descendants are card carrying members of Antifa. Governor Hogg made comments that would have done credit to any modern-day Neo-Cuckservative Apologist. The difference being that The People of Texas did not applaud his buffoonery, and instead repudiated it with the defiant spirit of contempt that it merited. Reading through the comments, such as those from the Editor of the Fort Worth Gazette (page 102 – 105), it becomes quite clear that The People of Texas had grown weary of the ineffectual judicial process and had lost faith in its ability to punish, much less deter criminals.

    The attitude of the Negroes in Paris is reflected on pages 25 -26 (undoubtedly, in addition to being truly horrified – afterall, it was 1893 -, they believed that the actions of this individual would reflect negatively on all of them).

    Smith’s wife testifies as to his character on pages 122 – 124

    Pages 46 – 50 contain excerpts from Smith’s confession.

    The execution is described in gruesome detail on pages 57 – 61 ( WARNING: Not for the squeamish or feint of heart)

    “He will hardly do such a thing again. It is a good example” – Dr. Julian C. Feild (page 73)

    Contained on pages 117-118 is a coroner’s report on the condition of the child when she was examined. Her perineum was lacerated from the back of the vagina to an inch and a half up the rectum, where he had forcibly torn her open with his bare hands.

    Also worth reading are General Sam Bell Maxey’s comments from the Houston Post on pages 133 – 136.

    This text at first appears to be rather lengthy, but I read through it in less than an hour, even with taking a couple of breaks.

    https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/a8/The_facts_in_the_case_of_the_horrible_murder_of_little_Myrtle_Vance_and_its_fearful_expiation_at_Paris%2C_Texas%2C_February_1st%2C_1893.pdf

    Also, consider the Strange (((Roots))) of “Strange Fruit.”

    I had long suspected that the song “Strange Fruit,” made famous by Negro, Jazz vocalist, Billie Holiday, was written by a Jewish Communist, and that Holiday had never personally witnessed a lynching.

    I decided to look into the matter, and I found that I was right on both counts.

    The song and melody were written by Abel Meeropol, a Jewish, school teacher from the Bronx. Meeropol wrote the song under the pseudonym Lewis Allen and published it as a poem in the Communist Party, U.S.A. paper, The New Masses. Ironically, despite the line, “Southern Trees Bear Strange Fruit,” Meeropol wrote the lyrics after seeing the picture of a lynching that took place on August 7, 1930 in Marion, Indiana. Two Negroes, Thomas Shipp and Abram Smith were accused of murdering a man and raping his female companion. Though rumored to be the state with the largest percentage of Klansmen per capita, the last time I checked, Indiana is not in the South. Interestingly, Meeropol later adopted the orphaned children of Julius and Ethyl Rosenberg.

    Billie Holiday was born in Philadelphia in 1915, but was moved to Baltimore as an infant. Billie’s father, Clarence Holiday, abandoned the family when she was only a few years old to pursue a career as a Jazz guitarist. Nevertheless, Billie idolized him. She was frequently left in the care of a relative while her mother worked in service positions for the railroads. At age thirteen, her mother led her into prostitution. She falsely claimed in her autobiography to have co-written “Strange Fruit” with Meeropol. She said that she related to the song because her father allegedly died after being denied treatment at a hospital in Dallas for a fatal lung disorder, which she equated with lynchings in the South.

    Though certainly denied access to certain establishments while traveling through the South, it is noteworthy that she was not permitted to drink in the bar or eat in the restaurant and was forced to use the service elevator while performing with the White, Band Leader, Artie Shaw, at the upscale, Lincoln Hotel in New York in the mid 1930’s.

    Billie Holiday died at age 44 of cirrhosis of the liver from years of heavy drinking and other health issues stemming from chronic heroin abuse.

    First, it's Charles Blow's burden to show Till's accuser committed perjury. But of course, he provides no link or citation to support his fake assertion. As a public service, however, I'll point you there.

    The recantation myth came from the book promotion of a guy who needed a hook to sell his 2017 Emmett Till book, even though everything about the case had already been definitively covered in a far better 2015 book. So the author gins up some free publicity by giving an exclusive to a fawning Vanity Fair reporter, who will break the "bombshell" that will move his book. Here's from the VF article.


    In a new book, The Blood of Emmett Till (Simon & Schuster), Timothy Tyson, a Duke University senior research scholar, reveals that Carolyn—in 2007, at age 72—confessed that she had fabricated the most sensational part of her testimony. “That part’s not true,” she told Tyson, about her claim that Till had made verbal and physical advances on her. As for the rest of what happened that evening in the country store, she said she couldn’t remember. (Carolyn is now 82, and her current whereabouts have been kept secret by her family.)

    Tyson’s book, to be published next week, was preceded by the definitive study of the case, Devery S. Anderson’s masterful Emmett Till: The Murder That Shocked the World and Propelled the Civil Rights Movement, which was published in 2015 by the University Press of Mississippi. (Last week, John Edgar Wideman’s meditation on Till, Writing to Save a Life, was named a finalist for a National Book Critics Circle Award.) Still, no author save Tyson has ever interviewed Carolyn Bryant Donham. (Her ex-husband and brother-in-law are both dead.) “That case went a long way toward ruining her life,” Tyson contends, explaining that she could never escape its notoriety. His compelling book is suffused with information that Donham, over coffee and pound cake, shared with him in what he calls a “confessional” spirit. https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2017/01/how-author-timothy-tyson-found-the-woman-at-the-center-of-the-emmett-till-case?mbid=social_twitter
     

    The author has no specifics as to what "that part" was referring to. At best, he seems to have taken some vague words ("that part's not true") out of context. At worst, he just made the whole thing up.

    Of course before before printing that someone had admitted to perjury, journalistic ethics requires that you get a statement from the alleged perjurer confirming or denying the accusation. Ha Ha Ha. Good one. Why go to the source when you can use the unreliable hearsay statement of a guy with a blatant conflict of interest. It is odd that the alleged quote was from ten years before he published his book. But I'm sure it's okay because he tape recorded the interview so . . . . oh, wait, the tape recorder wasn't running at that moment. Oh, what bad luck!


    Timothy Tyson’s book on Emmett Till became a bestseller thanks to the bombshell quote he attributed to Carolyn Bryant Donham — that she lied when she testified about Till accosting her.

    Donham’s daughter-in-law, Marsha Bryant, who was present for the two tape-recorded interviews Tyson did with Donham, said her mother-in-law “never recanted.”

    Adding to the intrigue is the fact the quote Tyson attributed to Donham isn’t on the recordings.
    Tyson said the recordings of his interviews with Donham are now in the hands of the FBI, which is reexamining Till's killing.

    “It is true that that part is not on tape because I was setting up the tape recorder,” Tyson said.

    He said when Donham began to mutter something about “they’re all dead now anyway,” he snatched up his notebook and began taking notes, which the FBI has since subpoenaed.

    He shared a photo of the notes with the Clarion Ledger. They read: “That pt wasn’t true. … 50 yrs ago. I just don’t remember. … Nothing that boy ever did could justify what happened to him.”
    https://www.clarionledger.com/story/news/2018/08/21/emmett-till-carolyn-bryant-donham-recant-quote-missing/1017876002/
     

    So the entire recantation myth is based on the words "that part's not true" on a yellow legal pad in 2008, ten years before this guy started claiming the "not true" part was her testimony that she was physically assaulted and propositioned. It is obviously inconceivable, however, that Tyson would leave out of his contemporaneous notes the actual conduct that was "not true." It is likewise inconceivable that he would not have asked a follow up question like: "Wait, are you saying you made up your testimony and that didn't actually happen?"

    Bottom Line: The recantation is documented as 100% fake. But the NYT and it's ilk have cited it as an established fact thousands of time, and will continue to do.

    If you believe anything you read in the MSM that even touches upon the SJW propaganda agenda you are a fool. If you want further confirmation, do some researcher on Matthew Sheppard, who is the gay version of Emmett Till.

    Now you sound like Charles Blow. There is no "terror" against blacks in America and there is no terror against Karens either. Just because "Karens" are being called out on their bad behavior doesn't mean that they are going to be targeted for physical violence. Are Karens supposed to be like black people, where you are never allowed to call the cops on them because of what might happen when you do? Even in the case of this particular Karen, who is now the hate object of millions, no one has physically touched a hair on her head and the only one who did any violence to her dog baby was Karen herself.

    Calling out Karen is good, because it might cause Karen to reconsider whether she really is as special as she thinks she is. Karens don't need much prompting to imagine that they are being threatened but if the "threats" are coming from all directions then maybe Karen will reconsider whether SHE is the one who has to adjust HER behavior. (Getting blacks to consider whether the bad things that happen to them is in part caused by their own behavior is a lost cause, but there is hope for Karens). I'll bet Amy Cooper has been doing some soul searching and will never again be the Karen she once was.

    Serious question. Why do you think that the left is about to collapse, when they have the universities and the media solidly behind them?

    Because their ideas are nuts? That's not the way the world works.

    Replies: @Anonymous, @TomSchmidt, @Redman

    Q: Why do you think that the left is about to collapse, when they have the universities and the media solidly behind them?

    A: (from a different Anonymous):

    The Left is an emergent phenomenon of urban living. No urban, no Left. Urban areas now run an economic deficit, a big one, and their populations cannot become productive — too dumb, too crazy (See Dutton, _How to Judge People_, which is on the asymmetry of features caused by high mutational load). Young people are fleeing the city if they can hold a telecommute job, as are the rich if they can, and the businesses if they can. These groups are unlikely to return. The cities are falling, being replaced by geographically distributed networks.

    The Universities are now in serious trouble (as is public education in general). Their latest move, canceling University and sending the students home while continuing to charge full tuition/housing costs, has made those paying less likely to believe in a positive return from such obviously faithless institutions. Further, the inept COVID-19 models, worsened by clearly fraudulent claims of accuracy (and I speak here as a person who has made several involved simulation models), have discredited science and modeling among the general public. The Universities are not the assets they once were.

    The mass media has discredited itself. When POTUS Trump successfully defeated legal assaults and it was demonstrated that Flynn had been the victim of malicious prosecution, the media (and Deep State) were demonstrated to be a threat to the general public. When the news media gave destructive advice over COVID-19, the perception of a media threat to the general public was heightened.

    Further: The countryside has elected Trump. The Left, as per its SOP, attacked, only this time ineptly. They discredited their mass media — a highly significant loss. They left a paper trail that connected their leading members to criminal acts. They left Trump with two alternatives: defeat the Deep State or be destroyed (with his family) after he leaves office. Trump is now actively trying to defeat the Deep State. The Left now has a powerful enemy with backing from the only economically viable part of the US.

    The Deep State’s counter is apparently to make gainful employment (or even leaving one’s house) illegal in States governed by Democrats. This is coupled with an attempt to increase the fraction of counted votes that are fraudulent. Both moves are astonishingly inept, both have been detected and widely disseminated in non-Left media, so both are unlikely to succeed, but likely to depress Democratic (Left) votes. The Left has lost its ability impose a very low fidelity consensus reality by out-thinking its rivals, and in any case could not disseminate its “political reality” over a threatening media.

    Even some of the Left is becoming frightened by its recent actions. They know that every successful revolution entails, at some point, the elimination of its supporters who do not have a record of blind loyalty to the controlling group of the Revolution, and that much the same can be said for Counter-revolutions. Many on the Left feel vulnerable, and for good reason.

    Finally, the POC part of the Left’s coalition (a very large part) have successfully transformed the public opinion of themselves from “persecuted saints” to “active threats”, threats both to the Whites and to each other. It is unlikely that they can be unified behind any sort of leadership — each of the POC wants a leadership composed solely of its own ethnic group, and actively fights leadership from other POC groups.

    So: the Left is in serious trouble. It might not collapse, but is foundations are seriously eroded. At one point the Japanese constructed buildings so strong that they could not be damaged by earthquakes. When the earthquakes hit, the building foundations fluidized and the buildings settled unevenly, giving floors about 35 degrees off horizontal. At best, that is what has happened to the Left. Like the tilted buildings, it is now an uninhabitable monument to folly that will take some time to weather down to a debris field.

    The universities, largely, are in the process of collapse. The Ivies will be fine, along with some big state schools. Any place dependent on tuition is going to crash. It’s so bad, one place with which I am familiar is actually cutting ADMIN salaries.

    The media have also shot their wad in this. All it would take to kill most of it would be an FCC order that cable companies allow a la carte pricing for TV channels, in which case MSNBC, CNN, and Fox would lose the mulcted dollars of right and left, respectively. My guess: there’s less demand for CNN and MSNBC among willing payers. Cut off the money from people who CNN hates on every day, and they’re toast.

    https://www.thewrap.com/cable-network-carriage-fees/
    That article from a few years back says the monthly subscriber fee for CNN is $.60. If 10,000,000 conservatives drop the channel, that’s a loss of $72MM annually. They would not survive. More recent estimates are 7-8$ annually per subscriber, again in the same ballpark. If not offered the chance to choose, a lot of people just cut the cord. Ask anyone in media.

    No, there are plenty of other examples of black men or boys killed. The interesting thing to me is the Michael Brown/Tamir Rice dichotomy. One attacked a cop, charged the same man, and was dispatched, yet inspired a whole mythology around “hands up, don’t shoot,” and was the main event in Black Lives Matter. The other was a 12 year old kid sitting on a bench who was blown away within I think two seconds of the police car arriving. The cop in the first case was harassed out of his job; the cop in the second case was eventually fired.

    Compare Philando Castile, the “poor driving but not violent” black man assassinated by a cop, with this case, where I don’t think people have made the claim that George Floyd was not being arrested on a real crime. Both in Minnesota. The police officer in the Castile case was not immediately fired, and was offered a buyout of tens of thousands of dollars:
    https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2017/07/11/cop-who-killed-philando-castile-paid-48-500-buyout/466918001/

    Meanwhile, the four officers in Minneapolis have been fired, likely with no buyout.

    It seems like the only cases that blow up are when the rioters want to make a stink about someone who was clearly engaged in wrongdoing (but, nonviolent. George Floyd was a forger, and Eric Garner was selling loose cigarettes), rather than clear cases of police killing of innocents. The war isn’t on police misconduct, but it seems on police conduct.

    It's neither. It's a war on white conduct. The choice of who to elevate as the martyr du jour is based on who fits the narrative: "Unarmed black man killed by white cops."

    Tamir Rice was holding a gun (a replica, but the cops couldn't know that), so he didn't fit. And Philando Castile was shot by a Hispanic cop, so he's useless as a martyr. Nothing will make sense to you until you understand the agenda.

    That's not true . In 1984 I was waiting for a ship in Bayonne , NJ . I spent the two or three weeks running into the Lower East side buying heroin and shooting that shit in stairwells and strangers apts in the public housing projects east of Alphabet city . So finally I got a ship . I went up the gangway and picked a fight with the girl who happened to be on watch at the time . She was straight white girl from a working class family in Boston . A graduate of a certain Maritime Academy with a Third Mates License but as there were no mates jobs available at that time she was sailing as an AB . We became friends and that girl saved my life . The basic urge of some women is to nurture . She moved back to Boston because of a family tragedy to be with her father . An American hero not for any specific heroic deed but just the way he lived his life in the face of great adversity . I followed her as I had no direction . All her life she had done the things that we are all told will lead to success . She got an MBA went to work for a company in Boston where she did great service . The economy crashed in Mass after Dukakis lost the election . She found work at another company in the same field as a customer service rep . The only one , where she made as many sales as the salesmen . At one point she began receiving anonymous sexually inappropriate phone calls from someone . She figured out pretty quick who it was , a major customer in Texas . The idea of suing never entered her mind , she put the company first and went to the boss who made a phone call . Later she met a great guy , when she introduced me to him and we met as soon as I shook his hand I sensed that he was right for her and he has been . They are still married with two children all these years later , although I can't deny he is a bit of a nut in a good way . Well time passed and we have always stayed in touch . Now due to the economy and the costs of two kids in college they are struggling . I didn't mention that he made enough that she could be a stay at home mom when the kids were little . I won't go into the tragedy of the unnecessary loss of a perfectly healthy new born . But she always perseveres in the face of adversity as Fred taught her to . So anyway here we are now and I who have only excelled at f**king up have inherited enough money to see me out in the style I have become accustomed to . So my friend with a big expensive house to maintain and two kids in college (which I disapprove of) is struggling financially . So I had in my endless spare time seen some videos about the Shepard's Sling . Fascinating you know all the ancient Mediterranean powers hired Baleric Slingers as mercenaries . Anyway , I mentioned this to my 58 y/o female friend who expressed no interest . I even bought her one from Amazon . But still she showed no interest . Now this is a female type personnel who when she had reason to believe that when her family might be in danger didn't hesitate to go out and buy a gun and take classes to learn how to use it with the intention to kill to defend her family . So after some time and I got my (undeserved) money and offered her a deal . If she could hit a plate sized target from 20 feet 60% of the time I would give her $1500 . Well she got right on that shit . So tonight we were on the phone while she was practicing . She has the plate nailed to a large wooden backboard . Man she only hit the edge of the plate once but when she hits the wooden backboard what a crack , like a gunshot . Even when the stone misses the backboard entirely and hits a tree another ten feet beyond it sounds like a gunshot . We both agreed a very gratifying sound . Man my 58 y/o female friend has been misjudged by more than one man but not by me . I know I'll be writing a check within two months . She is going to havec to send me video proof and I will share it with yo when she does .

    Do you have a link debunking the idea that the woman lied?

    First, it’s Charles Blow’s burden to show Till’s accuser committed perjury. But of course, he provides no link or citation to support his fake assertion. As a public service, however, I’ll point you there.

    The recantation myth came from the book promotion of a guy who needed a hook to sell his 2017 Emmett Till book, even though everything about the case had already been definitively covered in a far better 2015 book. So the author gins up some free publicity by giving an exclusive to a fawning Vanity Fair reporter, who will break the “bombshell” that will move his book. Here’s from the VF article.

    In a new book, The Blood of Emmett Till (Simon & Schuster), Timothy Tyson, a Duke University senior research scholar, reveals that Carolyn—in 2007, at age 72—confessed that she had fabricated the most sensational part of her testimony. “That part’s not true,” she told Tyson, about her claim that Till had made verbal and physical advances on her. As for the rest of what happened that evening in the country store, she said she couldn’t remember. (Carolyn is now 82, and her current whereabouts have been kept secret by her family.)

    Tyson’s book, to be published next week, was preceded by the definitive study of the case, Devery S. Anderson’s masterful Emmett Till: The Murder That Shocked the World and Propelled the Civil Rights Movement, which was published in 2015 by the University Press of Mississippi. (Last week, John Edgar Wideman’s meditation on Till, Writing to Save a Life, was named a finalist for a National Book Critics Circle Award.) Still, no author save Tyson has ever interviewed Carolyn Bryant Donham. (Her ex-husband and brother-in-law are both dead.) “That case went a long way toward ruining her life,” Tyson contends, explaining that she could never escape its notoriety. His compelling book is suffused with information that Donham, over coffee and pound cake, shared with him in what he calls a “confessional” spirit. https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2017/01/how-author-timothy-tyson-found-the-woman-at-the-center-of-the-emmett-till-case?mbid=social_twitter

    The author has no specifics as to what “that part” was referring to. At best, he seems to have taken some vague words (“that part’s not true”) out of context. At worst, he just made the whole thing up.

    Of course before before printing that someone had admitted to perjury, journalistic ethics requires that you get a statement from the alleged perjurer confirming or denying the accusation. Ha Ha Ha. Good one. Why go to the source when you can use the unreliable hearsay statement of a guy with a blatant conflict of interest. It is odd that the alleged quote was from ten years before he published his book. But I’m sure it’s okay because he tape recorded the interview so . . . . oh, wait, the tape recorder wasn’t running at that moment. Oh, what bad luck!

    Timothy Tyson’s book on Emmett Till became a bestseller thanks to the bombshell quote he attributed to Carolyn Bryant Donham — that she lied when she testified about Till accosting her.

    Donham’s daughter-in-law, Marsha Bryant, who was present for the two tape-recorded interviews Tyson did with Donham, said her mother-in-law “never recanted.”

    Adding to the intrigue is the fact the quote Tyson attributed to Donham isn’t on the recordings.
    Tyson said the recordings of his interviews with Donham are now in the hands of the FBI, which is reexamining Till’s killing.

    “It is true that that part is not on tape because I was setting up the tape recorder,” Tyson said.

    He said when Donham began to mutter something about “they’re all dead now anyway,” he snatched up his notebook and began taking notes, which the FBI has since subpoenaed.

    He shared a photo of the notes with the Clarion Ledger. They read: “That pt wasn’t true. … 50 yrs ago. I just don’t remember. … Nothing that boy ever did could justify what happened to him.”
    https://www.clarionledger.com/story/news/2018/08/21/emmett-till-carolyn-bryant-donham-recant-quote-missing/1017876002/

    So the entire recantation myth is based on the words “that part’s not true” on a yellow legal pad in 2008, ten years before this guy started claiming the “not true” part was her testimony that she was physically assaulted and propositioned. It is obviously inconceivable, however, that Tyson would leave out of his contemporaneous notes the actual conduct that was “not true.” It is likewise inconceivable that he would not have asked a follow up question like: “Wait, are you saying you made up your testimony and that didn’t actually happen?”

    Bottom Line: The recantation is documented as 100% fake. But the NYT and it’s ilk have cited it as an established fact thousands of time, and will continue to do.

    If you believe anything you read in the MSM that even touches upon the SJW propaganda agenda you are a fool. If you want further confirmation, do some researcher on Matthew Sheppard, who is the gay version of Emmett Till.

    Natural resources -- that's what it's selling today.

    Stalin used these national resources and Russian manpower to build a military capable of taking Europe after the Germans invaded France _if_ the Russians had attacked three weeks earlier. Even after the Germans attacked first (called a "spoiling attach" in military terms), the Russians were eventually able to prevail, although at ruinous cost in population loss.

    After WW II nuclear weapons made the USSR's military forces useless except as an internal security force, for which they were badly equipped and grossly overmanned. However, nobody was able to change Russian manufacturing from a command economy producing mainly for a WW II military to a civil economy that used light metals, electronics, computers, and transportation. Towards the end, the USSR was actually subtracting value by changing salable raw materials into unsalable (heck, they couldn't even give them away free) manufactured goods. (See: Spufford, _Red Plenty_, for a very well written semi-fictional account of this interval in Russian history)
    USSR manufacturing was, in fact, so destructive of value that it could not even meet its own amortization costs for depreciation. Eventually, USSR industrial capital stock deteriorated so much that it was unable to support its own population except by imports, for which it was increasingly unable to pay. Reform efforts failed (as they had for N. Kruschev), and the first serious failure (Chernobyl) was the death blow to the USSR. The entire manufacturing sector was laid off, along with much of the military sector, and the USSR was re-organized, eventually into the current Russian Federation.

    Change the story a bit. USSR becomes US. Project changes from conquest of Europe (which the USSR, or at least Lenin and Stalin, thought was necessary self defense) to making the POC capable of industrial civilization, said project to end when the POC said it was successful (**). Change "Stalin" to "FDR" (who won a lot more in WW II than did Stalin). Change "manufacturing" to "urban, academic, and government". Change "N. Kruschev" to his contemporary, "JFK". Change "Chernobyl" to "COVID-19", Change "Yeltsin" to "Trump". Leave "re-organized" alone. Presto - you get the United States since 1960 on into maybe 2030, 2040.

    The two are isomorphic, and both were trapped in systems they couldn't escape -- communism for one, and Tammany Hall descendants for the other.

    The universities, largely, are in the process of collapse. The Ivies will be fine, along with some big state schools. Any place dependent on tuition is going to crash. It's so bad, one place with which I am familiar is actually cutting ADMIN salaries.

    The media have also shot their wad in this. All it would take to kill most of it would be an FCC order that cable companies allow a la carte pricing for TV channels, in which case MSNBC, CNN, and Fox would lose the mulcted dollars of right and left, respectively. My guess: there's less demand for CNN and MSNBC among willing payers. Cut off the money from people who CNN hates on every day, and they're toast.

    https://www.thewrap.com/cable-network-carriage-fees/
    That article from a few years back says the monthly subscriber fee for CNN is $.60. If 10,000,000 conservatives drop the channel, that's a loss of $72MM annually. They would not survive. More recent estimates are 7-8$ annually per subscriber, again in the same ballpark. If not offered the chance to choose, a lot of people just cut the cord. Ask anyone in media.

    In fact, making up the recantation myth in 2017 is actually not about the Civil Rights movement at all, but rather about the 21st Century #Metoo movement.

In fact, you could say that Till was ahead of his time, insofar as he was extrajudicially Metooed, with extreme prejudice.

    So the SJWs had to remove the cognitive dissonance between (a) sexual predation by men is bad; and (b) Emmett did nothing wrong. Enter the recantation myth.

    Of course, the recantation myth also undercuts the SJW talking point that "women don't lie about sexual assault." But you can't make an omelette . . .

    It either happened, or it didn't, so the odds must be 50/50. That's pretty airtight logic.

    Of course, by the same logic, you would have to admit that it is "equally possible" that the murderers were telling the truth at trial when they denied killing Till. They were either lying then, or lying later when they confessed to Look Magazine, so it's a 50/50 chance as to which version is true. I guess we will never know.

    Fact is they keep going back to Till, because it’s basically all they’ve got.

    No, there are plenty of other examples of black men or boys killed. The interesting thing to me is the Michael Brown/Tamir Rice dichotomy. One attacked a cop, charged the same man, and was dispatched, yet inspired a whole mythology around "hands up, don't shoot," and was the main event in Black Lives Matter. The other was a 12 year old kid sitting on a bench who was blown away within I think two seconds of the police car arriving. The cop in the first case was harassed out of his job; the cop in the second case was eventually fired.

    Compare Philando Castile, the "poor driving but not violent" black man assassinated by a cop, with this case, where I don't think people have made the claim that George Floyd was not being arrested on a real crime. Both in Minnesota. The police officer in the Castile case was not immediately fired, and was offered a buyout of tens of thousands of dollars:
    https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2017/07/11/cop-who-killed-philando-castile-paid-48-500-buyout/466918001/

    Meanwhile, the four officers in Minneapolis have been fired, likely with no buyout.

    It seems like the only cases that blow up are when the rioters want to make a stink about someone who was clearly engaged in wrongdoing (but, nonviolent. George Floyd was a forger, and Eric Garner was selling loose cigarettes), rather than clear cases of police killing of innocents. The war isn't on police misconduct, but it seems on police conduct.

    "The fake recantation myth..."

    You are employing the hasty generalization fallacy here. You are jumping to a conclusion--the author definitively embellished the story in a direct effort to publicize his book--without specific evidence that shows his intent. I acknowledge that distinct possibility, but it is not "airtight" as you claim.

    "In fact, making up the recantation myth in 2017 is actually not about the Civil Rights movement at all, but rather about the 21st Century #Metoo movement."

    You are employing a false premise here. Have you comments from the author that would lead one to logically deduce that his motivation was to direct attention to #MeToo? Moreover, there was an accusation of Till being sexually aggressive. It has yet to be grounded in abject. Certainly he may have made an unwanted comment to a female (then again, who hasn't? I mean, Clinton and Trump are "real men" we should look up to, so the SJW's are simply overreacting to their masculinity), and his utterance would not be tolerated in "polite Southern society". But there was no "extrajudiciallyed Metooing" on the part of Bryant's husband and his half-brother. Rather, it was a vicious mauling regardless if Emmett's whistling toward a white woman was an affront to the white imposed social order. And it has been firmly established the murder was committed by the two men who received the benefit of jury nullification, thanks in part to a "gentle push" by the trial judge.

    "And another thing, why is it simply accepted as a fact that the killing was “racially motivated?” The only evidence seems to be that Till was black, the killer was white, and it was the South so . . . what else could it possibly be?"

    Exactly. It was racially motivated. Blacks and whites were prohibited by law and social custom from having relations. The two southern "gentlemen" believed that their manhood was in jeopardy, so they took the law into their own hands.

    "But Till wasn’t the first or last man killed for trying to f**k a jealous man’s wife..."

    Now you're just making up things as you go along.

    Fact is they keep going back to Till, because it’s basically all they’ve got.

    No, there are plenty of other examples of black men or boys killed. The interesting thing to me is the Michael Brown/Tamir Rice dichotomy. One attacked a cop, charged the same man, and was dispatched, yet inspired a whole mythology around "hands up, don't shoot," and was the main event in Black Lives Matter. The other was a 12 year old kid sitting on a bench who was blown away within I think two seconds of the police car arriving. The cop in the first case was harassed out of his job; the cop in the second case was eventually fired.

    Compare Philando Castile, the "poor driving but not violent" black man assassinated by a cop, with this case, where I don't think people have made the claim that George Floyd was not being arrested on a real crime. Both in Minnesota. The police officer in the Castile case was not immediately fired, and was offered a buyout of tens of thousands of dollars:
    https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2017/07/11/cop-who-killed-philando-castile-paid-48-500-buyout/466918001/

    Meanwhile, the four officers in Minneapolis have been fired, likely with no buyout.

    It seems like the only cases that blow up are when the rioters want to make a stink about someone who was clearly engaged in wrongdoing (but, nonviolent. George Floyd was a forger, and Eric Garner was selling loose cigarettes), rather than clear cases of police killing of innocents. The war isn't on police misconduct, but it seems on police conduct.

    It’s neither. It’s a war on white conduct. The choice of who to elevate as the martyr du jour is based on who fits the narrative: “Unarmed black man killed by white cops.”

    Tamir Rice was holding a gun (a replica, but the cops couldn’t know that), so he didn’t fit. And Philando Castile was shot by a Hispanic cop, so he’s useless as a martyr. Nothing will make sense to you until you understand the agenda.

    Q: Why do you think that the left is about to collapse, when they have the universities and the media solidly behind them?
     
    A: (from a different Anonymous):

    The Left is an emergent phenomenon of urban living. No urban, no Left. Urban areas now run an economic deficit, a big one, and their populations cannot become productive -- too dumb, too crazy (See Dutton, _How to Judge People_, which is on the asymmetry of features caused by high mutational load). Young people are fleeing the city if they can hold a telecommute job, as are the rich if they can, and the businesses if they can. These groups are unlikely to return. The cities are falling, being replaced by geographically distributed networks.

    The Universities are now in serious trouble (as is public education in general). Their latest move, canceling University and sending the students home while continuing to charge full tuition/housing costs, has made those paying less likely to believe in a positive return from such obviously faithless institutions. Further, the inept COVID-19 models, worsened by clearly fraudulent claims of accuracy (and I speak here as a person who has made several involved simulation models), have discredited science and modeling among the general public. The Universities are not the assets they once were.

    The mass media has discredited itself. When POTUS Trump successfully defeated legal assaults and it was demonstrated that Flynn had been the victim of malicious prosecution, the media (and Deep State) were demonstrated to be a threat to the general public. When the news media gave destructive advice over COVID-19, the perception of a media threat to the general public was heightened.

    Further: The countryside has elected Trump. The Left, as per its SOP, attacked, only this time ineptly. They discredited their mass media -- a highly significant loss. They left a paper trail that connected their leading members to criminal acts. They left Trump with two alternatives: defeat the Deep State or be destroyed (with his family) after he leaves office. Trump is now actively trying to defeat the Deep State. The Left now has a powerful enemy with backing from the only economically viable part of the US.

    The Deep State's counter is apparently to make gainful employment (or even leaving one's house) illegal in States governed by Democrats. This is coupled with an attempt to increase the fraction of counted votes that are fraudulent. Both moves are astonishingly inept, both have been detected and widely disseminated in non-Left media, so both are unlikely to succeed, but likely to depress Democratic (Left) votes. The Left has lost its ability impose a very low fidelity consensus reality by out-thinking its rivals, and in any case could not disseminate its "political reality" over a threatening media.

    Even some of the Left is becoming frightened by its recent actions. They know that every successful revolution entails, at some point, the elimination of its supporters who do not have a record of blind loyalty to the controlling group of the Revolution, and that much the same can be said for Counter-revolutions. Many on the Left feel vulnerable, and for good reason.

    Finally, the POC part of the Left's coalition (a very large part) have successfully transformed the public opinion of themselves from "persecuted saints" to "active threats", threats both to the Whites and to each other. It is unlikely that they can be unified behind any sort of leadership -- each of the POC wants a leadership composed solely of its own ethnic group, and actively fights leadership from other POC groups.


    So: the Left is in serious trouble. It might not collapse, but is foundations are seriously eroded. At one point the Japanese constructed buildings so strong that they could not be damaged by earthquakes. When the earthquakes hit, the building foundations fluidized and the buildings settled unevenly, giving floors about 35 degrees off horizontal. At best, that is what has happened to the Left. Like the tilted buildings, it is now an uninhabitable monument to folly that will take some time to weather down to a debris field.

    It's possible that was the motive of the author. Equally possible, however, is that Bryant admitted what she said happened didn't occur the way it was made out to be. We will never know. Regardless, you are conveniently downplaying the fact that Till's case at the time was a turning point in the Civil Rights movement given that the murder was brutal in nature, that two men used vigilante "justice" to mete out "punishment" for an alleged breach of southern social etiquette, and that the all-white jury acquitted the men despite Till's uncle ID'ing the men and the recovery of a ring Till was wearing.

    It either happened, or it didn’t, so the odds must be 50/50. That’s pretty airtight logic.

    Of course, by the same logic, you would have to admit that it is “equally possible” that the murderers were telling the truth at trial when they denied killing Till. They were either lying then, or lying later when they confessed to Look Magazine, so it’s a 50/50 chance as to which version is true. I guess we will never know.

    That's not true . In 1984 I was waiting for a ship in Bayonne , NJ . I spent the two or three weeks running into the Lower East side buying heroin and shooting that shit in stairwells and strangers apts in the public housing projects east of Alphabet city . So finally I got a ship . I went up the gangway and picked a fight with the girl who happened to be on watch at the time . She was straight white girl from a working class family in Boston . A graduate of a certain Maritime Academy with a Third Mates License but as there were no mates jobs available at that time she was sailing as an AB . We became friends and that girl saved my life . The basic urge of some women is to nurture . She moved back to Boston because of a family tragedy to be with her father . An American hero not for any specific heroic deed but just the way he lived his life in the face of great adversity . I followed her as I had no direction . All her life she had done the things that we are all told will lead to success . She got an MBA went to work for a company in Boston where she did great service . The economy crashed in Mass after Dukakis lost the election . She found work at another company in the same field as a customer service rep . The only one , where she made as many sales as the salesmen . At one point she began receiving anonymous sexually inappropriate phone calls from someone . She figured out pretty quick who it was , a major customer in Texas . The idea of suing never entered her mind , she put the company first and went to the boss who made a phone call . Later she met a great guy , when she introduced me to him and we met as soon as I shook his hand I sensed that he was right for her and he has been . They are still married with two children all these years later , although I can't deny he is a bit of a nut in a good way . Well time passed and we have always stayed in touch . Now due to the economy and the costs of two kids in college they are struggling . I didn't mention that he made enough that she could be a stay at home mom when the kids were little . I won't go into the tragedy of the unnecessary loss of a perfectly healthy new born . But she always perseveres in the face of adversity as Fred taught her to . So anyway here we are now and I who have only excelled at f**king up have inherited enough money to see me out in the style I have become accustomed to . So my friend with a big expensive house to maintain and two kids in college (which I disapprove of) is struggling financially . So I had in my endless spare time seen some videos about the Shepard's Sling . Fascinating you know all the ancient Mediterranean powers hired Baleric Slingers as mercenaries . Anyway , I mentioned this to my 58 y/o female friend who expressed no interest . I even bought her one from Amazon . But still she showed no interest . Now this is a female type personnel who when she had reason to believe that when her family might be in danger didn't hesitate to go out and buy a gun and take classes to learn how to use it with the intention to kill to defend her family . So after some time and I got my (undeserved) money and offered her a deal . If she could hit a plate sized target from 20 feet 60% of the time I would give her $1500 . Well she got right on that shit . So tonight we were on the phone while she was practicing . She has the plate nailed to a large wooden backboard . Man she only hit the edge of the plate once but when she hits the wooden backboard what a crack , like a gunshot . Even when the stone misses the backboard entirely and hits a tree another ten feet beyond it sounds like a gunshot . We both agreed a very gratifying sound . Man my 58 y/o female friend has been misjudged by more than one man but not by me . I know I'll be writing a check within two months . She is going to havec to send me video proof and I will share it with yo when she does .

    Paragraphs, dog. Paragraphs.

    Before you start, you should give an introduction. Then for a long comment you should do like so;

    [MORE]

    That is a ‘MORE’ tag. It prevents the rest of your post from being visible to people who don’t click the tag. It is located at the top right side of the comment box, to the rights of the ‘Blockquote’ option. You should use a ‘MORE’ tag for long comments, especially if they are off topic, which you story may or may not be. I didn’t read because it was in the format called ‘a wall of text.’ Most people don’t read them for various reasons.

    Divide your story into pieces arranged in an a logical order. These are called ‘paragraphs.’ Since your relaying a story, it should probably be organized by order of events. For example, give her background, then do this:

    See that? I pressed the return key on my iPad, and it moved to the line. Then I pressed it again, and it moved down a line. After doing that, you start relaying events.

    First event, then you’d describe the beginning of the interesting story your relaying. For example. ‘This woman encountered a man’, and you describe the beginning of the encounter, and start a new paragraph. See above for how to do this:

    Here we are at our next paragraph. Because this is the internet, and there is no reason to save on paper, you might break up be each event. Perhaps in this organizational style;

    Man did xsub1. Woman did ysub1 in response.

    Man did xsub2. Woman did ysub2 in response.

    Or you might break it down with more events and possibly commentary on said events, but these events should only be grouped together if they have a reasonable division from subsequent events.

    Then you end the story with a conclusion. The conclusion should be in a new paragraph.

    It perhaps goes without saying that the story should be jermain to the subject of the blog post, or you can use the abbreviation ‘OT’ for ‘off topic’ for a story you think would be interesting to the blogger.

    No need to thank me. I’m happy to help.

    The judge excluded testimony relating to the sexual assault in the store. She didn’t tell her story under oath.
     
    Actually, she did testify under oath in open court. However, it was outside the presence of the jury. According to the (predictably biased) Wikipedia article:

    The jury did not hear Bryant testify. The judge ruled it inadmissible, but the court spectators heard. The defense wanted Bryant's testimony as evidence for a possible appeal in the case of a conviction. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emmett_Till#Admission_that_the_testimony_against_Till_was_false

     

    But now that you mention it, the fact that the jury didn't hear the testimony of sexual harassment/assault actually makes the SJW story even dumber. Their talking point is that Bryant's lies were supposedly what allowed the murderers to get off. But in reality, the jury never heard the testimony. Wikipedia of course has also been corrupted by the SJW fake news virus, so it editorializes and -- of course -- uncritically repeats the fake recantation myth. How lame is it that a supposedly factual entry mostly consists of the opinions from a New York Times editorial.

    In 2017, author Timothy Tyson released details of a 2008 interview with Carolyn Bryant, during which she disclosed that she had fabricated the most sensational part of her testimony.[2][5][127] Tyson said during the interview, Bryant retracted her testimony that Till had grabbed her around her waist and uttered obscenities, saying "that part's not true".[128][129] The jury did not hear Bryant testify. The judge ruled it inadmissible, but the court spectators heard. The defense wanted Bryant's testimony as evidence for a possible appeal in the case of a conviction.[2][3] In the 2008 interview, the 72-year-old Bryant said she could not remember the rest of the events that occurred between her and Till in the grocery store.[2] She also said: "nothing that boy did could ever justify what happened to him".[129] . . . An editorial in The New York Times said regarding Bryant's admission that portions of her testimony were false: "This admission is a reminder of how black lives were sacrificed to white lies in places like Mississippi. It also raises anew the question of why no one was brought to justice in the most notorious racially motivated murder of the 20th century, despite an extensive investigation by the F.B.I."[130]

    The New York Times quoted Wheeler Parker, a cousin of Till's, who said, "I was hoping that one day she [Bryant] would admit it, so it matters to me that she did, and it gives me some satisfaction. It's important to people understanding how the word of a white person against a black person was law, and a lot of black people lost their lives because of it. It really speaks to history, it shows what black people went through in those days."[6]
     
    And another thing, why is it simply accepted as a fact that the killing was "racially motivated?" The only evidence seems to be that Till was black, the killer was white, and it was the South so . . . what else could it possibly be? But Till wasn't the first or last man killed for trying to f**k a jealous man's wife. I am sure being black improved his probability of getting murdered. But he also might have ended up at the bottom of the river even if he had been white. As Corvinus says, "we'll never know."

The idea that anyone should be afraid of actually getting raped or murdered by a black man is portrayed as a racist myth.

    Steve's point is that the NYT and its ilk promote this SJW worldview by obsessing over Emmett's case from 65-years ago while ignoring the thousands and thousands of counter-examples of actual rape and murder by blacks.

    The counter-example of Emmett's own rapist-murderer father just happens to be a rather obvious counter-example from the same family. Heck, in the battle of white people vs. the Till family, the Tills are still ahead on points: the score is one murder vs. one murder and two rapes.

    Btw, it's a flat out lie that the woman recanted her allegations. That was B.S. made up by a guy who was trying to sell a book. Zero corroboration and no credibility for that alleged hearsay statement. The NYT regularly repeats it as fact, however. The very definition of fake news.

    The judge excluded testimony relating to the sexual assault in the store. She didn’t tell her story under oath.

    Actually, she did testify under oath in open court. However, it was outside the presence of the jury. According to the (predictably biased) Wikipedia article:

    The jury did not hear Bryant testify. The judge ruled it inadmissible, but the court spectators heard. The defense wanted Bryant’s testimony as evidence for a possible appeal in the case of a conviction. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emmett_Till#Admission_that_the_testimony_against_Till_was_false

    But now that you mention it, the fact that the jury didn’t hear the testimony of sexual harassment/assault actually makes the SJW story even dumber. Their talking point is that Bryant’s lies were supposedly what allowed the murderers to get off. But in reality, the jury never heard the testimony. Wikipedia of course has also been corrupted by the SJW fake news virus, so it editorializes and — of course — uncritically repeats the fake recantation myth. How lame is it that a supposedly factual entry mostly consists of the opinions from a New York Times editorial.

    In 2017, author Timothy Tyson released details of a 2008 interview with Carolyn Bryant, during which she disclosed that she had fabricated the most sensational part of her testimony.[2][5][127] Tyson said during the interview, Bryant retracted her testimony that Till had grabbed her around her waist and uttered obscenities, saying “that part’s not true”.[128][129] The jury did not hear Bryant testify. The judge ruled it inadmissible, but the court spectators heard. The defense wanted Bryant’s testimony as evidence for a possible appeal in the case of a conviction.[2][3] In the 2008 interview, the 72-year-old Bryant said she could not remember the rest of the events that occurred between her and Till in the grocery store.[2] She also said: “nothing that boy did could ever justify what happened to him”.[129] . . . An editorial in The New York Times said regarding Bryant’s admission that portions of her testimony were false: “This admission is a reminder of how black lives were sacrificed to white lies in places like Mississippi. It also raises anew the question of why no one was brought to justice in the most notorious racially motivated murder of the 20th century, despite an extensive investigation by the F.B.I.”[130]

    The New York Times quoted Wheeler Parker, a cousin of Till’s, who said, “I was hoping that one day she [Bryant] would admit it, so it matters to me that she did, and it gives me some satisfaction. It’s important to people understanding how the word of a white person against a black person was law, and a lot of black people lost their lives because of it. It really speaks to history, it shows what black people went through in those days.”[6]

    And another thing, why is it simply accepted as a fact that the killing was “racially motivated?” The only evidence seems to be that Till was black, the killer was white, and it was the South so . . . what else could it possibly be? But Till wasn’t the first or last man killed for trying to f**k a jealous man’s wife. I am sure being black improved his probability of getting murdered. But he also might have ended up at the bottom of the river even if he had been white. As Corvinus says, “we’ll never know.”

    About 2 miles north of my old neighborhood (which had its own share of problems) was the formerly middle class, well kept and tightly knit community of Polytechnic Heights. The old Poly Freeway that bordered it was renamed Martin Luther King Freeway sometime ago.

    Scott Cummings, now a Sociology Professor at Louisville State University, was working with H.U.D. and Inner City Youth during the late 1970's and early 1980's. The Youth Center was located directly above the Senior Center. By proximity, Cummings was drawn into the plight of the Elderly White People falling victim to The Black Plague.

    Nearly 20 years later, Cummings published, "Left Behind in Rosedale; Race Relations and the Collapse of Community Institutions." The horrors that he documents are enough to make Stephen King's skin crawl. I have many of the old newspaper articles that I photocopied from the microfilm archives after reading the book.

    He tells of one old White Woman who was found in the bathtub when a group of Joggers entered her home. They picked her up by the chin and began to slap her around, demanding money. They punched her to the ground and kicked and stomped on her. The Joggers spray painted her genitals and killed her by shoving a fourteen inch wooden dowl down her throat.

    In a 3 month period between June and September of 1982, there were 46 White elderly victims of crime within a 30 block radius. Three Old White Women, ages 77, 80 and 94 were raped.

    Cummings wrote about an old White Man standing on the curb and helplessly watching Joggers load his furniture onto a truck. Another Old White Man was beaten to death at an intersection after leaving the grocery store while a crowd of Joggers stood by and watched. In addition to property crime, purse snatchings and routine harassment, the Old White People were regularly subjected to sheer terror and imminent mortal danger.

    The psychological effects were devastating. Longtime neighbors began to fear going out to get their mail, shopping or fraternizing with each other. Everyone had been a victim at one time or another, and everyone knew most of the people who had been raped and/or murdered. Cummings describes an Old White Woman who boarded up every room except the kitchen, living room and bathroom and moved hesitantly between those... certain that a Jogger was lurking in the other rooms waiting to pounce on her. Her nights were filled with trepidation until sleep eventually allowed her a brief escape from her immobilizing fright.

    When Cummings spoke to the Youth Director, he acknowledged there was a problem, but he shrugged it off by saying the problem would resolve itself in a few years; meaning the Old White People would die off. That is the attitude of our government, it is in line with that of the Negro Youth Director. They are waiting for us to die off.

The point of all these incidents is that white people can unjustly harass and antagonize (and even kill) black people and get away with it. That’s the difference between all the crap “Paul Kersey” posts and incidents like Emmett Till; Kersey’s stories almost invariably result in an arrest and life sentence, whereas Till’s murder did not. I know that many iSteve readers now seem to be taking the position that Till did grab Bryant and thus deserved to be lynched, but in the real world that’s a fringe view, to say the least of it (especially since his murderers admitted that the main reason they did it was to make an example of him).

    Rapists sometimes just grab women .

    But more often they’ll ask her for a match for a cigarette, directions, walk along with her in a parking lot chatting. Women who work with the public, in banks , library , stores often are first spotted. Couple days later the rapist approaches her and says “ don’t you work at X bank on Y street? That’s my bank” So she says yes he chats and then his rapist friend pull up in the car and they all grab her.

    The guy who pulled a gun on me and told me to get in his car first pulled up and asked me directions to a hospital. Then he got out of his car and told me his grandmother way dying and he was distraught and he needed me to get in his car to direct him to the hospital. When he pulled the gun I decided f’m, I’d rather die than submit to some POS. I scared him off and he got back in his car and drove away.

    There are as many rapes that begin with a friendly chat as with being grabbed and shoved into a car.

    And this happened in NYC!!! Tessa Majors was murdered in a NYC park just a few months ago.

    It was obviously a set up. he recorded a soft spoken reasonable scolding about the dog. But he was trying to lure the dog with treats. Any NYC woman harassed by a man in a lonely area of a NYC park is possibly being approached by a rapist or robber or a dog thief. Expensive breeds are sometimes stolen.

    Charles Blow in the article which is the subject of the original post is saying exactly that. So is every writer at the NYT. It's the whole premise of their "silly white girl calling 911 because she's afraid of a black man" campaign. Too many stories to recount, but you can review their archives if you want.

    The point of all these incidents is that white people can unjustly harass and antagonize (and even kill) black people and get away with it.
     
    That is utter bullshit. White-on-black crime is statistically non-existent. I don't necessarily blame you for believing the lie that white people are hunting blacks. This is merely nonsense you have mindlessly absorbed from the usual lying MSM outlets. After all, if something is repeated that often, it must be true, right?

    No, you don't. Nobody's taking that position.

    . . . mild-mannered, obviously gay black birdwatcher . . .
     
    I have no idea how "obvious" his gayness is. But he's a burly bodybuilder type (in the mode of many gay men) who initiated a confrontation with a single woman in an isolated area. He threatened her ("I'm going to do what I like and you're not going to like it"), he tried to grab her dog, and then started filming her without her permission. Frankly, the guy's an asshole at best. What man confronts a women like that over her labradoodle running around and causing no harm to anyone? Here's the poor black victim's own version of what happened.

    “ME: Ma’am, dogs in the Ramble have to be on the leash at all times. The sign is right there.

    “HER: The dog runs are closed. He needs his exercise.

    “ME: All you have to do is take him to the other side of the drive, outside the Ramble, and you can let him run off leash all you want.

    “HER: It’s too dangerous.

    “ME: Look, if you’re going to do what you want, I’m going to do what I want, but you’re not going to like it.

    “HER: What’s that?

    “ME (to the dog): Come here, puppy!

    “HER: He won’t come to you.

    “ME: We’ll see about that…” before adding, “I pull out the dog treats I carry for just for such intransigence. I didn’t even get a chance to toss any treats to the pooch before Karen scrambled to grab the dog.

    “HER: DON’T YOU TOUCH MY DOG!!!!!

    “That’s when I started video recording with my iPhone, and when her inner Karen fully emerged and took a dark turn.. https://nypost.com/2020/05/26/christian-cooper-recounts-amy-cooper-incident-before-video-footage/
     

    The information she reported to 911 was 100% accurate:

    "There's an African American man, I'm in Central Park, he is recording me and threatening myself and my dog. ... Please send the cops immediately!" she says during the call before he stops recording.
     
    Of course absolutely nothing happened to "black bird watcher," but he's supposedly a victim of lynching. Give me a break. (Incidentally, in most jurisdictions calling 911 is a privileged act that you can't be liable to a third party for doing).

    On the other hand, for minding her own business and making a factually accurate complaint when confronted, the white chick got fired, had her dog taken away, was publicly cancelled, and is now about to be sent to re-education camp so she can learn not to call the police when threatened. So much for your idiotic theory that whites have a free pass to intimidate blacks.


    New York City's Commission on Human Rights has launched an investigation into the verbal dispute between a white woman with an unleashed dog and a black man bird watching in Central Park.

    The commission has sent a letter of inquiry to the woman involved, requesting her cooperation in a pre-complaint intervention.

    "At a time when the devastating impacts of racism in Black communities have been made so painfully clear-from racial disparities in COVID-19 outcomes, to harassment of essential workers on the frontlines-it is appalling to see these types of ugly threats directed at one New Yorker by another," said Sapna V. Raj, Deputy Commissioner of the Law Enforcement Bureau at the NYC Commission on Human Rights in a statement.

    "Efforts to intimidate Black people by threatening to call law enforcement draw on a long, violent and painful history, and they are unacceptable," the statement continued. "We encourage Ms. Cooper to cooperate with the Commission and meaningfully engage in a process to address the harm that she has caused."

    The agency sent Amy Cooper, the white woman who called police, a letter -- a pre-complaint intervention -- the first step in its investigation. She has five days to respond to the letter or the next step could be litigation.

    Raj believes Cooper's actions violated Christian Cooper, the black man who was birdwatching, his human rights. The commission is seeking restorative justice.

    "I think some kind of training and community service will actually help a lot for people to understand what effect their words and actions are on different communities and communities of color," Raj said via Zoom.

    This asshole had do treats in his pocket and no dog.

    An argument? First, no one should be having arguments with any stranger.

    He made threatening statements and tried to lure her dog. He's antisocial at minimum, but probably more than that.

    What are the comparative stats of Black men harassing, raping, or killing both White Women and Men in any given year?

    And you have to reach all the way back to Emmit Till. That's utterly pathetic and it only highlights the ridiculous nature of your claims and that of the broader complaints of Blacks.

    Your god help you should we decide to make Saints out of even a miniscule percentage of White victims, in any given year! Let alone going back to the Emmit Till era.

    What a pathetic display of self pity and lack of self awareness by a clear group of sociopaths who couldn't stop their high crime rate with all of the money in the world.

    Keep crying over that one dead man, and we'll keep watching you people murder your way through your relatively charmed existence here.

    She had every reason to be terrified.

    Black people attempting to invert the truth of this situation for group gain will only have your entire group labeled as mentally strange and worthy of avoidance.

    Right now, there are White men, everywhere, telling White women that if a Black man talks to them they should put their head down and keep walking. No matter what.

    Friends? gone. Neighborly behavior? gone.

    other than ballet dancers, what did Soviet Russia ever produce that the rest of the world wants?

    Natural resources — that’s what it’s selling today.

    Stalin used these national resources and Russian manpower to build a military capable of taking Europe after the Germans invaded France _if_ the Russians had attacked three weeks earlier. Even after the Germans attacked first (called a “spoiling attach” in military terms), the Russians were eventually able to prevail, although at ruinous cost in population loss.

    After WW II nuclear weapons made the USSR’s military forces useless except as an internal security force, for which they were badly equipped and grossly overmanned. However, nobody was able to change Russian manufacturing from a command economy producing mainly for a WW II military to a civil economy that used light metals, electronics, computers, and transportation. Towards the end, the USSR was actually subtracting value by changing salable raw materials into unsalable (heck, they couldn’t even give them away free) manufactured goods. (See: Spufford, _Red Plenty_, for a very well written semi-fictional account of this interval in Russian history)
    USSR manufacturing was, in fact, so destructive of value that it could not even meet its own amortization costs for depreciation. Eventually, USSR industrial capital stock deteriorated so much that it was unable to support its own population except by imports, for which it was increasingly unable to pay. Reform efforts failed (as they had for N. Kruschev), and the first serious failure (Chernobyl) was the death blow to the USSR. The entire manufacturing sector was laid off, along with much of the military sector, and the USSR was re-organized, eventually into the current Russian Federation.

    Change the story a bit. USSR becomes US. Project changes from conquest of Europe (which the USSR, or at least Lenin and Stalin, thought was necessary self defense) to making the POC capable of industrial civilization, said project to end when the POC said it was successful (**). Change “Stalin” to “FDR” (who won a lot more in WW II than did Stalin). Change “manufacturing” to “urban, academic, and government”. Change “N. Kruschev” to his contemporary, “JFK”. Change “Chernobyl” to “COVID-19”, Change “Yeltsin” to “Trump”. Leave “re-organized” alone. Presto – you get the United States since 1960 on into maybe 2030, 2040.

    The two are isomorphic, and both were trapped in systems they couldn’t escape — communism for one, and Tammany Hall descendants for the other.

    Except this isn't Tammany Hall's descendants we are dealing with. It's the Progressive anti-machine mentality entirely. Tammany was all about carve outs for each ethny, and was always realistic in being a system of insuring social peace through things like "honest graft." They might have been corrupt, but they knew they were corrupt and that perfection was not an achievable goal on earth. Would that the mentality that imagined a "new Soviet man" would do likewise.

    you are conveniently downplaying the fact that Till’s case at the time was a turning point in the Civil Rights movement given that the murder was brutal in nature, that two men used vigilante “justice” to mete out “punishment” for an alleged breach of southern social etiquette
     
    No, I'm not. The fake recantation myth is just a totally separate issue from the murder.

    In fact, making up the recantation myth in 2017 is actually not about the Civil Rights movement at all, but rather about the 21st Century #Metoo movement. In 2017, Till's sexually aggressive behavior was exactly the kind of thing that SJWs were supposed to be having a jihad against. In fact, you could say that Till was ahead of his time, insofar as he was extrajudicially Metooed, with extreme prejudice.

    So the SJWs had to remove the cognitive dissonance between (a) sexual predation by men is bad; and (b) Emmett did nothing wrong. Enter the recantation myth.

    Of course, the recantation myth also undercuts the SJW talking point that "women don't lie about sexual assault." But you can't make an omelette . . . In any event, everyone has always understood that the "believe all women" rule is subject to the "except white women accusing black men" loophole (aka The "To Kill A Mockingbird Exception").

    “The fake recantation myth…”

    You are employing the hasty generalization fallacy here. You are jumping to a conclusion–the author definitively embellished the story in a direct effort to publicize his book–without specific evidence that shows his intent. I acknowledge that distinct possibility, but it is not “airtight” as you claim.

    “In fact, making up the recantation myth in 2017 is actually not about the Civil Rights movement at all, but rather about the 21st Century #Metoo movement.”

    You are employing a false premise here. Have you comments from the author that would lead one to logically deduce that his motivation was to direct attention to #MeToo? Moreover, there was an accusation of Till being sexually aggressive. It has yet to be grounded in abject. Certainly he may have made an unwanted comment to a female (then again, who hasn’t? I mean, Clinton and Trump are “real men” we should look up to, so the SJW’s are simply overreacting to their masculinity), and his utterance would not be tolerated in “polite Southern society”. But there was no “extrajudiciallyed Metooing” on the part of Bryant’s husband and his half-brother. Rather, it was a vicious mauling regardless if Emmett’s whistling toward a white woman was an affront to the white imposed social order. And it has been firmly established the murder was committed by the two men who received the benefit of jury nullification, thanks in part to a “gentle push” by the trial judge.

    “And another thing, why is it simply accepted as a fact that the killing was “racially motivated?” The only evidence seems to be that Till was black, the killer was white, and it was the South so . . . what else could it possibly be?”

    Exactly. It was racially motivated. Blacks and whites were prohibited by law and social custom from having relations. The two southern “gentlemen” believed that their manhood was in jeopardy, so they took the law into their own hands.

    “But Till wasn’t the first or last man killed for trying to f**k a jealous man’s wife…”

    Now you’re just making up things as you go along.

    Are you trying to mock HT666 by putting out his argument in your own words? You write these things:

    "It’s possible that was the motive of the author. Equally possible, however, is that Bryant admitted what she said happened didn’t occur the way it was made out to be. "

    (HT666) "But Till wasn’t the first or last man killed for trying to f**k a jealous man’s wife…”
    (CV)"Now you’re just making up things as you go along."

    But you also write this:
    "The two southern “gentlemen” believed that their manhood was in jeopardy, so they took the law into their own hands."

    How can you possibly know that last point, unless you're trying to demonstrate to HT666 how impossible it is to know WHY an author fabricated an extraordinary quote... by fabricating a reason "why" the two men killed Till?

    The idea that anyone should be afraid of actually getting raped or murdered by a black man is portrayed as a racist myth.
     
    Who is saying that? Of course there are circumstances under which it's justifiable to be afraid of a black man; an argument over dog leashing with mild-mannered, obviously gay black birdwatcher isn't one of them. The point of all these incidents is that white people can unjustly harass and antagonize (and even kill) black people and get away with it. That's the difference between all the crap "Paul Kersey" posts and incidents like Emmett Till; Kersey's stories almost invariably result in an arrest and life sentence, whereas Till's murder did not. I know that many iSteve readers now seem to be taking the position that Till did grab Bryant and thus deserved to be lynched, but in the real world that's a fringe view, to say the least of it (especially since his murderers admitted that the main reason they did it was to make an example of him).

    Rapists sometimes just grab women .

    But more often they’ll ask her for a match for a cigarette, directions, walk along with her in a parking lot chatting. Women who work with the public, in banks , library , stores often are first spotted. Couple days later the rapist approaches her and says “ don’t you work at X bank on Y street? That’s my bank” So she says yes he chats and then his rapist friend pull up in the car and they all grab her.

    The guy who pulled a gun on me and told me to get in his car first pulled up and asked me directions to a hospital. Then he got out of his car and told me his grandmother way dying and he was distraught and he needed me to get in his car to direct him to the hospital. When he pulled the gun I decided f’m, I’d rather die than submit to some POS. I scared him off and he got back in his car and drove away.

    There are as many rapes that begin with a friendly chat as with being grabbed and shoved into a car.

    And this happened in NYC!!! Tessa Majors was murdered in a NYC park just a few months ago.

    It was obviously a set up. he recorded a soft spoken reasonable scolding about the dog. But he was trying to lure the dog with treats. Any NYC woman harassed by a man in a lonely area of a NYC park is possibly being approached by a rapist or robber or a dog thief. Expensive breeds are sometimes stolen.

    Right.
    Criminals usually try to achieve complete surprise when they attack. Sometimes it's stealth (attacks from behind in "Knockout game", attacks at times of poor visibility), but with the Black propensity for bullshit (listen to any rap song) it's easier to just pose as a friend asking for help.
    This makes it necessary to reject any "friends" or "people needing help", white or black, dialing 911 being the limit of "help" one can safely give. Such rejection, of course, decreases social cohesion and makes everybody worse off, but that's the way the reward matrix is structured.

    Upon being accosted, try _loudly_ saying "Stop! Get back! Do I know you?" repeatedly while holding your hand up in a "stop" position. Make a scene and dial 911 "to report a distressed person". If legal where you are, try carrying a locking pocket knife with a pocket clip in both your front your pants pockets or other places (garters?). Works wonders if the person tries to grab you or grapple. Be sure to call 911 or the person who attacked you will file a police complaint about you attacking them.

    Or, start the process of leaving the dangerous urban area _today_, before anything bad happens to your personally. The "dog" incident shows that having the law on your side is not an effective defense.

    . . . mild-mannered, obviously gay black birdwatcher . . .

    I have no idea how “obvious” his gayness is. But he’s a burly bodybuilder type (in the mode of many gay men) who initiated a confrontation with a single woman in an isolated area. He threatened her (“I’m going to do what I like and you’re not going to like it”), he tried to grab her dog, and then started filming her without her permission. Frankly, the guy’s an asshole at best. What man confronts a women like that over her labradoodle running around and causing no harm to anyone? Here’s the poor black victim’s own version of what happened.

    “ME: Ma’am, dogs in the Ramble have to be on the leash at all times. The sign is right there.

    “HER: The dog runs are closed. He needs his exercise.

    “ME: All you have to do is take him to the other side of the drive, outside the Ramble, and you can let him run off leash all you want.

    “HER: It’s too dangerous.

    “ME: Look, if you’re going to do what you want, I’m going to do what I want, but you’re not going to like it.

    “HER: What’s that?

    “ME (to the dog): Come here, puppy!

    “HER: He won’t come to you.

    “ME: We’ll see about that…” before adding, “I pull out the dog treats I carry for just for such intransigence. I didn’t even get a chance to toss any treats to the pooch before Karen scrambled to grab the dog.

    “HER: DON’T YOU TOUCH MY DOG!!!!!

    “That’s when I started video recording with my iPhone, and when her inner Karen fully emerged and took a dark turn.. https://nypost.com/2020/05/26/christian-cooper-recounts-amy-cooper-incident-before-video-footage/

    The information she reported to 911 was 100% accurate:

    “There’s an African American man, I’m in Central Park, he is recording me and threatening myself and my dog. … Please send the cops immediately!” she says during the call before he stops recording.

    Of course absolutely nothing happened to “black bird watcher,” but he’s supposedly a victim of lynching. Give me a break. (Incidentally, in most jurisdictions calling 911 is a privileged act that you can’t be liable to a third party for doing).

    On the other hand, for minding her own business and making a factually accurate complaint when confronted, the white chick got fired, had her dog taken away, was publicly cancelled, and is now about to be sent to re-education camp so she can learn not to call the police when threatened. So much for your idiotic theory that whites have a free pass to intimidate blacks.

    New York City’s Commission on Human Rights has launched an investigation into the verbal dispute between a white woman with an unleashed dog and a black man bird watching in Central Park.

    The commission has sent a letter of inquiry to the woman involved, requesting her cooperation in a pre-complaint intervention.

    “At a time when the devastating impacts of racism in Black communities have been made so painfully clear-from racial disparities in COVID-19 outcomes, to harassment of essential workers on the frontlines-it is appalling to see these types of ugly threats directed at one New Yorker by another,” said Sapna V. Raj, Deputy Commissioner of the Law Enforcement Bureau at the NYC Commission on Human Rights in a statement.

    “Efforts to intimidate Black people by threatening to call law enforcement draw on a long, violent and painful history, and they are unacceptable,” the statement continued. “We encourage Ms. Cooper to cooperate with the Commission and meaningfully engage in a process to address the harm that she has caused.”

    The agency sent Amy Cooper, the white woman who called police, a letter — a pre-complaint intervention — the first step in its investigation. She has five days to respond to the letter or the next step could be litigation.

    Raj believes Cooper’s actions violated Christian Cooper, the black man who was birdwatching, his human rights. The commission is seeking restorative justice.

    “I think some kind of training and community service will actually help a lot for people to understand what effect their words and actions are on different communities and communities of color,” Raj said via Zoom.

    Create the idea that black men can do what they want to White women and that calling the police on threatening black men is a lynching?

    Remember that 12 hours after Tessa was murdered the NYSLIMES was editorializing that it was the fault of everyone but the killers that Tessa was murdered. And she was in the park after dark in December when it’s dark by 5PM.

    The Coalition of the Fringes was always a shaky thing. As long as you can keep the focus on hating white men it works but once you take your eyes off of that target, it becomes a circular firing squad. Someone best have a talk with Charles and tell him to tone down his anti-white woman act a little bit. Joe Biden is already not exactly the ideal candidate for the Amy Cooper/dog mom demographic.

    Borough of Manhattan presidential election 2016:

    Hillary Clinton 86%
    Donald Trump 10%
    Jill Stein 2%
    Other 2%

    So this confirms what I think is your point. Like the Minneapolis riots where a black mob loots one of Mark Dayton’s Target stores, this is a liberal-on-liberal dogfight.

    She’s a Canadian. She can’t vote here. There are more than 100 Amy Coopers in NY state.

    This incident is a warning to all Whites. Be careful if a soft spoken polite black scolds you for misbehavior in public. It might be a set up. There could be someone filming you and putting it on the internet. And you might end up like Amy Cooper.

  146. I agree, white women are the bane of humanity, since they got the vote we’ve had continuous invasion, debt and war, without white women voters abortion and invasion wouldn’t be issues.

    We can end the tyranny by terminating subsidies to single and divorced women with children and we can end all wars by denying white women and their children survivors benefits.

    When their ox is gored they’ll vote accordingly, suddenly invasion, debt, and war will become “issues” for white women and abortion unthinkable, those kids are her pension fund, as it stands now they’re the most unaccountable life forms on the planet, just godless monkey holes.

    Sicced her dog on rare plants, and donated to Kerry and Obama. He’s no jewel, either, but at least he cared about the public garden. Actually, he is the one who should have called the cops, though not 911. This was not 911 business.

    Has volunteer Central Park gardener Billy Squier given us his take?

  148. In a Segregated Society, European Americans wouldn’t have to be concerned when Joggers tried to lure their dogs away with treats. But, regardless…

    Was the Jogger wearing a mask? If not, then Ms. Cooper can legitimately assert that her and her dog’s lives were endangered due to the Jogger’s insistence of violating their Social Distancing Safe Space. I mean!, Gasp!, Coronavirus! Call 911!, by order of de Blasio! Case Closed.

    other than ballet dancers, what did Soviet Russia ever produce that the rest of the world wants?
     
    Natural resources -- that's what it's selling today.

    Stalin used these national resources and Russian manpower to build a military capable of taking Europe after the Germans invaded France _if_ the Russians had attacked three weeks earlier. Even after the Germans attacked first (called a "spoiling attach" in military terms), the Russians were eventually able to prevail, although at ruinous cost in population loss.

    After WW II nuclear weapons made the USSR's military forces useless except as an internal security force, for which they were badly equipped and grossly overmanned. However, nobody was able to change Russian manufacturing from a command economy producing mainly for a WW II military to a civil economy that used light metals, electronics, computers, and transportation. Towards the end, the USSR was actually subtracting value by changing salable raw materials into unsalable (heck, they couldn't even give them away free) manufactured goods. (See: Spufford, _Red Plenty_, for a very well written semi-fictional account of this interval in Russian history)
    USSR manufacturing was, in fact, so destructive of value that it could not even meet its own amortization costs for depreciation. Eventually, USSR industrial capital stock deteriorated so much that it was unable to support its own population except by imports, for which it was increasingly unable to pay. Reform efforts failed (as they had for N. Kruschev), and the first serious failure (Chernobyl) was the death blow to the USSR. The entire manufacturing sector was laid off, along with much of the military sector, and the USSR was re-organized, eventually into the current Russian Federation.

    Change the story a bit. USSR becomes US. Project changes from conquest of Europe (which the USSR, or at least Lenin and Stalin, thought was necessary self defense) to making the POC capable of industrial civilization, said project to end when the POC said it was successful (**). Change "Stalin" to "FDR" (who won a lot more in WW II than did Stalin). Change "manufacturing" to "urban, academic, and government". Change "N. Kruschev" to his contemporary, "JFK". Change "Chernobyl" to "COVID-19", Change "Yeltsin" to "Trump". Leave "re-organized" alone. Presto - you get the United States since 1960 on into maybe 2030, 2040.

    The two are isomorphic, and both were trapped in systems they couldn't escape -- communism for one, and Tammany Hall descendants for the other.

Tammany was all about carve outs for each ethny, and was always realistic in being a system of insuring social peace through things like “honest graft.” They might have been corrupt, but they knew they were corrupt and that perfection was not an achievable goal on earth.

    Here's why I said what I did. It's as much a fundamental re-descripition of US history as are R. Unz WW II articles, but it is actually based on commonplaces among political science professionals.

    That's what I thought until a few years back, right up until the introduction of a new version of Plunkett's/Riorden's book. The previous edition's introduction stated, as you did, that the Progressives were anti-Tammany. The new edition's introduction (and remember, both editions were intended for the college market, as the book was frequently assigned reading) said that, yes, the Progressives were anti-Tammany, but that this was actually generational. Tammany had written the laws and structural changes that made the Progressives possible. In a way, Progressives were just a Tammany faction.

    To get a feel for what happened, take a look at an appendix to Plunket's/Riordon's book, _Plunkett of Tammany Hall_, entitied something like "The strenuous life of a District Leader". The life described (from about 1900) is exhausting. The Dsitrict leader has to do everything himself; he doesn't have subordinates that he can trust, so he, himself, has to hand out every bit of poor relief, has to attend annual 4th of July celebrations, has to be the host to massive summertime parties, has to ensure medical care, has to get the party regulars out, etc. While the District leader clearly couldn't literally oversee everything, he was also clearly overstretched.
    In his book, Plunkett points out that all cities in the US at the time wee run by what the Press called "machines" and what Plunkett called "professionals" (See chapter "Reformers is Morning Glories"). Some cities were Republican, some were Democratic.
    The Progressives simply bureaucratized the process. Contemporary District leaders don't have to do much more than fend off other District leaders, and the Party workers have become public employees, for whom the District leader need do little more than vote pay raises. That's why the bureaucracy and the Deep State is political. Both Democrats and Republicans did this, but the Democrats did it a lot better (as Plunkett noted).
    The result was the diversion of immense amounts of money ("mother's milk of politics") from commercial / industrial processes to political processes. That's why the urban areas were able to accept the (inadequate) Federal replacement of their manufacturing / transshipment industries by Federal welfare payments. Tammany Hall just wasn't up to distributing that large a money flow. (I remember back when the welfare bureaucracy was greatly expanded in NYC back in the late 1960s to administer Federal money. The word was "Welfare is hiring", and fortunately I avoided working for there.)

    Way back in the 1960s, the general idea was that Democrats had the assignment of keeping the population more or less happy with daily life, and the Republicans were responsible for being competent. You still get that division in States that have Democrat legislators but Republican governors. Ideas like Modern Monetary Theory and Postmodernism state that competence is actually bad (either inhibits consumption or is an attempt at oppression or both), so this distinction has largely been lost. Still, it too was ancestral to our current system, which can be seen as Tammany writ large. The memory of competence, and hope, is what supports Trump.

    So that's it. Once US income had grown enough to make the Tammany District Leader system unworkable, it was bureaucratized. The US empire and decline of urban economic importance (to zero) funneled exceptionally large amounts of money into the welfare bureaucracy (and related bureaucracies), the whole thing was justified by the Civil Rights laws (see: Christopher Caldwell, _The Age of Entitlement_ for the fundamental restructuring of US society these laws actually were), and we get the current system. Which is almost over because it has let US capital stock and labor quality deteriorate enough to make maintenance of the US empire/political income impossible.

    And now we get to watch the cities fall, whether we want to or not. Trump's offer to quell the Minneapolis riot (and possible incipient riots in NYC and LA) _might_ quell riots, but it won't restore the cities to economic health, nor will it generate the political income needed to maintain/repair the cities. The most economically productive will flee, the urban infrastructure will continue to deteriorate.

    Too bad. I can remember when the cities, although near the end of their run as economically productive areas, were not on life support. It was better, but it's over now.

    "The fake recantation myth..."

    You are employing the hasty generalization fallacy here. You are jumping to a conclusion--the author definitively embellished the story in a direct effort to publicize his book--without specific evidence that shows his intent. I acknowledge that distinct possibility, but it is not "airtight" as you claim.

    "In fact, making up the recantation myth in 2017 is actually not about the Civil Rights movement at all, but rather about the 21st Century #Metoo movement."

    You are employing a false premise here. Have you comments from the author that would lead one to logically deduce that his motivation was to direct attention to #MeToo? Moreover, there was an accusation of Till being sexually aggressive. It has yet to be grounded in abject. Certainly he may have made an unwanted comment to a female (then again, who hasn't? I mean, Clinton and Trump are "real men" we should look up to, so the SJW's are simply overreacting to their masculinity), and his utterance would not be tolerated in "polite Southern society". But there was no "extrajudiciallyed Metooing" on the part of Bryant's husband and his half-brother. Rather, it was a vicious mauling regardless if Emmett's whistling toward a white woman was an affront to the white imposed social order. And it has been firmly established the murder was committed by the two men who received the benefit of jury nullification, thanks in part to a "gentle push" by the trial judge.

    "And another thing, why is it simply accepted as a fact that the killing was “racially motivated?” The only evidence seems to be that Till was black, the killer was white, and it was the South so . . . what else could it possibly be?"

    Exactly. It was racially motivated. Blacks and whites were prohibited by law and social custom from having relations. The two southern "gentlemen" believed that their manhood was in jeopardy, so they took the law into their own hands.

    "But Till wasn’t the first or last man killed for trying to f**k a jealous man’s wife..."

    Now you're just making up things as you go along.

    Replies: @TomSchmidt

    Are you trying to mock HT666 by putting out his argument in your own words? You write these things:

    “It’s possible that was the motive of the author. Equally possible, however, is that Bryant admitted what she said happened didn’t occur the way it was made out to be. ”

    (HT666) “But Till wasn’t the first or last man killed for trying to f**k a jealous man’s wife…”
    (CV)”Now you’re just making up things as you go along.”

    But you also write this:
    “The two southern “gentlemen” believed that their manhood was in jeopardy, so they took the law into their own hands.”

    How can you possibly know that last point, unless you’re trying to demonstrate to HT666 how impossible it is to know WHY an author fabricated an extraordinary quote… by fabricating a reason “why” the two men killed Till?

    About 2 miles north of my old neighborhood (which had its own share of problems) was the formerly middle class, well kept and tightly knit community of Polytechnic Heights. The old Poly Freeway that bordered it was renamed Martin Luther King Freeway sometime ago.

    Scott Cummings, now a Sociology Professor at Louisville State University, was working with H.U.D. and Inner City Youth during the late 1970’s and early 1980’s. The Youth Center was located directly above the Senior Center. By proximity, Cummings was drawn into the plight of the Elderly White People falling victim to The Black Plague.

    Nearly 20 years later, Cummings published, “Left Behind in Rosedale; Race Relations and the Collapse of Community Institutions.” The horrors that he documents are enough to make Stephen King’s skin crawl. I have many of the old newspaper articles that I photocopied from the microfilm archives after reading the book.

    He tells of one old White Woman who was found in the bathtub when a group of Joggers entered her home. They picked her up by the chin and began to slap her around, demanding money. They punched her to the ground and kicked and stomped on her. The Joggers spray painted her genitals and killed her by shoving a fourteen inch wooden dowl down her throat.

    In a 3 month period between June and September of 1982, there were 46 White elderly victims of crime within a 30 block radius. Three Old White Women, ages 77, 80 and 94 were raped.

    Cummings wrote about an old White Man standing on the curb and helplessly watching Joggers load his furniture onto a truck. Another Old White Man was beaten to death at an intersection after leaving the grocery store while a crowd of Joggers stood by and watched. In addition to property crime, purse snatchings and routine harassment, the Old White People were regularly subjected to sheer terror and imminent mortal danger.

    The psychological effects were devastating. Longtime neighbors began to fear going out to get their mail, shopping or fraternizing with each other. Everyone had been a victim at one time or another, and everyone knew most of the people who had been raped and/or murdered. Cummings describes an Old White Woman who boarded up every room except the kitchen, living room and bathroom and moved hesitantly between those… certain that a Jogger was lurking in the other rooms waiting to pounce on her. Her nights were filled with trepidation until sleep eventually allowed her a brief escape from her immobilizing fright.

    When Cummings spoke to the Youth Director, he acknowledged there was a problem, but he shrugged it off by saying the problem would resolve itself in a few years; meaning the Old White People would die off. That is the attitude of our government, it is in line with that of the Negro Youth Director. They are waiting for us to die off.

    The idea that anyone should be afraid of actually getting raped or murdered by a black man is portrayed as a racist myth.

    Who is saying that?
     

     
    Charles Blow in the article which is the subject of the original post is saying exactly that. So is every writer at the NYT. It's the whole premise of their "silly white girl calling 911 because she's afraid of a black man" campaign. Too many stories to recount, but you can review their archives if you want.

    The point of all these incidents is that white people can unjustly harass and antagonize (and even kill) black people and get away with it.
     
    That is utter bullshit. White-on-black crime is statistically non-existent. I don't necessarily blame you for believing the lie that white people are hunting blacks. This is merely nonsense you have mindlessly absorbed from the usual lying MSM outlets. After all, if something is repeated that often, it must be true, right?

    I know that many iSteve readers now seem to be taking the position that Till did grab Bryant and thus deserved to be lynched.
     
    No, you don't. Nobody's taking that position.

    . . . mild-mannered, obviously gay black birdwatcher . . .
     
    I have no idea how "obvious" his gayness is. But he's a burly bodybuilder type (in the mode of many gay men) who initiated a confrontation with a single woman in an isolated area. He threatened her ("I'm going to do what I like and you're not going to like it"), he tried to grab her dog, and then started filming her without her permission. Frankly, the guy's an asshole at best. What man confronts a women like that over her labradoodle running around and causing no harm to anyone? Here's the poor black victim's own version of what happened.

    “ME: Ma’am, dogs in the Ramble have to be on the leash at all times. The sign is right there.

    “HER: The dog runs are closed. He needs his exercise.

    “ME: All you have to do is take him to the other side of the drive, outside the Ramble, and you can let him run off leash all you want.

    “HER: It’s too dangerous.

    “ME: Look, if you’re going to do what you want, I’m going to do what I want, but you’re not going to like it.

    “HER: What’s that?

    “ME (to the dog): Come here, puppy!

    “HER: He won’t come to you.

    “ME: We’ll see about that…” before adding, “I pull out the dog treats I carry for just for such intransigence. I didn’t even get a chance to toss any treats to the pooch before Karen scrambled to grab the dog.

    “HER: DON’T YOU TOUCH MY DOG!!!!!

    “That’s when I started video recording with my iPhone, and when her inner Karen fully emerged and took a dark turn.. https://nypost.com/2020/05/26/christian-cooper-recounts-amy-cooper-incident-before-video-footage/
     

    The information she reported to 911 was 100% accurate:

    "There's an African American man, I'm in Central Park, he is recording me and threatening myself and my dog. ... Please send the cops immediately!" she says during the call before he stops recording.
     
    Of course absolutely nothing happened to "black bird watcher," but he's supposedly a victim of lynching. Give me a break. (Incidentally, in most jurisdictions calling 911 is a privileged act that you can't be liable to a third party for doing).

    On the other hand, for minding her own business and making a factually accurate complaint when confronted, the white chick got fired, had her dog taken away, was publicly cancelled, and is now about to be sent to re-education camp so she can learn not to call the police when threatened. So much for your idiotic theory that whites have a free pass to intimidate blacks.


    New York City's Commission on Human Rights has launched an investigation into the verbal dispute between a white woman with an unleashed dog and a black man bird watching in Central Park.

    The commission has sent a letter of inquiry to the woman involved, requesting her cooperation in a pre-complaint intervention.

    "At a time when the devastating impacts of racism in Black communities have been made so painfully clear-from racial disparities in COVID-19 outcomes, to harassment of essential workers on the frontlines-it is appalling to see these types of ugly threats directed at one New Yorker by another," said Sapna V. Raj, Deputy Commissioner of the Law Enforcement Bureau at the NYC Commission on Human Rights in a statement.

    "Efforts to intimidate Black people by threatening to call law enforcement draw on a long, violent and painful history, and they are unacceptable," the statement continued. "We encourage Ms. Cooper to cooperate with the Commission and meaningfully engage in a process to address the harm that she has caused."

    The agency sent Amy Cooper, the white woman who called police, a letter -- a pre-complaint intervention -- the first step in its investigation. She has five days to respond to the letter or the next step could be litigation.

    Raj believes Cooper's actions violated Christian Cooper, the black man who was birdwatching, his human rights. The commission is seeking restorative justice.

    "I think some kind of training and community service will actually help a lot for people to understand what effect their words and actions are on different communities and communities of color," Raj said via Zoom.

The US empire and decline of urban economic importance (to zero) funneled exceptionally large amounts of money into the welfare bureaucracy (and related bureaucracies), the whole thing was justified by the Civil Rights laws (see: Christopher Caldwell, _The Age of Entitlement_ for the fundamental restructuring of US society these laws actually were), and we get the current system. Which is almost over because it has let US capital stock and labor quality deteriorate enough to make maintenance of the US empire/political income impossible.

    And now we get to watch the cities fall, whether we want to or not. Trump’s offer to quell the Minneapolis riot (and possible incipient riots in NYC and LA) _might_ quell riots, but it won’t restore the cities to economic health, nor will it generate the political income needed to maintain/repair the cities. The most economically productive will flee, the urban infrastructure will continue to deteriorate.

    Too bad. I can remember when the cities, although near the end of their run as economically productive areas, were not on life support. It was better, but it’s over now.

    Thanks for the very informative look. I'll need to read Plunkett's book, not just his famous speech.

    "Which is almost over because it has let US capital stock and labor quality deteriorate enough to make maintenance of the US empire/political income impossible."

    Yes, that's the issue. When I can go from Milan to Florence in 1:39 on an Italian rail system famous for inspiring the excuse for Mussolini (he made the trains run on time) for about $45, but it takes 3:45 to go the same distance from NY to BOS and for more money on the fast train (minimum $75), then we have invested far too much in a military/industrial complex.

    Trump threatened this group with his comment at a Republican debate: "we spent $4trl on the war in Iraq. How much better off would we have been if we had spent that money here, on infrastructure." They REALLY don't want their dollars cut off, not the military, not the intelligence agencies. But we are past the point of borrowing money to spend, since interest will shortly be equal to new borrowing, COVID party notwithstanding.

    When we cannot fund the military and threaten people, the dollar ends as global reserve currency, and with it the subsidy to the people who profit from that. Their world is ending, and we will live through interesting times.

    In the past week in Nashville a white couple Kevin and LeAnn Craft were attacked by a black man with a machete at a downtown storage facility's office. Kelvin Edwards almost killed them. They are fighting for their lives at Vanderbilt. Edwards was mad about the Union Rescue Mission being full.

    Metro Nashville Officer Darrell Osment, walking his dog in near Nashville, says hello to the passing motorist William Johnston Jr, a black man, who lets Osment pass and then shoots him from his vehicle. He shoots at Osment while he is on the ground, missing, and drives off. Osment notifies the police and they catch up with Johnston in Nashville. A gunfight ensues. About 50 shots later Johnston is dead. One of the police officers in the gunfight was a black man, doing the most unpleasant part of his job. Johnston is dead.


    An 80 something year old couple is shot and killed at a Delaware cemetary by a black man, Sheldon C. Francis. They were visiting their deceased sons grave. No motive ascertianed.


    These are fresh incidents less than 2 weeks old Charles Blow. Nobody wants to kill innocent black Americans. The D.A.s will review the cases and file charges. I hope Im wrong but George Floyd probably did have something medically happening while being subdued. The cops called the ambulance for him. They noticed it to. Its not like those four policeman woke up that morning and said to themselves, "lets whoop up on a detainee really bad today so that he dies and we can get charged with murder." Those cops are probably heartsick.

    “Those cops….” may well regret their actions now. However, I should think that they heartily regret (if they were) being trained by the Israeli army to kneel on a prone arrestees neck. The Minneapolis police do train with Israeli forces in Israel and are taught there to view dark skinned people as animals whose lives are of little account.If Americans want their badly recruited police to be trained by racist killers they simply must be prepared to handle the fall out of it. Unless Americans find the fortitude to rid themselves of this pernicious influence upon their nation both in the halls of government and within the forces of order this sort of thing will continue.

    Rapists sometimes just grab women .

    But more often they’ll ask her for a match for a cigarette, directions, walk along with her in a parking lot chatting. Women who work with the public, in banks , library , stores often are first spotted. Couple days later the rapist approaches her and says “ don’t you work at X bank on Y street? That’s my bank” So she says yes he chats and then his rapist friend pull up in the car and they all grab her.

    The guy who pulled a gun on me and told me to get in his car first pulled up and asked me directions to a hospital. Then he got out of his car and told me his grandmother way dying and he was distraught and he needed me to get in his car to direct him to the hospital. When he pulled the gun I decided f’m, I’d rather die than submit to some POS. I scared him off and he got back in his car and drove away.

    There are as many rapes that begin with a friendly chat as with being grabbed and shoved into a car.

    And this happened in NYC!!! Tessa Majors was murdered in a NYC park just a few months ago.

    It was obviously a set up. he recorded a soft spoken reasonable scolding about the dog. But he was trying to lure the dog with treats. Any NYC woman harassed by a man in a lonely area of a NYC park is possibly being approached by a rapist or robber or a dog thief. Expensive breeds are sometimes stolen.

    Replies: @Anonymous, @Anon

    Right.
    Criminals usually try to achieve complete surprise when they attack. Sometimes it’s stealth (attacks from behind in “Knockout game”, attacks at times of poor visibility), but with the Black propensity for bullshit (listen to any rap song) it’s easier to just pose as a friend asking for help.
    This makes it necessary to reject any “friends” or “people needing help”, white or black, dialing 911 being the limit of “help” one can safely give. Such rejection, of course, decreases social cohesion and makes everybody worse off, but that’s the way the reward matrix is structured.

    Upon being accosted, try _loudly_ saying “Stop! Get back! Do I know you?” repeatedly while holding your hand up in a “stop” position. Make a scene and dial 911 “to report a distressed person”. If legal where you are, try carrying a locking pocket knife with a pocket clip in both your front your pants pockets or other places (garters?). Works wonders if the person tries to grab you or grapple. Be sure to call 911 or the person who attacked you will file a police complaint about you attacking them.

    Or, start the process of leaving the dangerous urban area _today_, before anything bad happens to your personally. The “dog” incident shows that having the law on your side is not an effective defense.

    In 2020, we constantly are told about what a white woman did to Emmett Till 65 years ago, but how often are we informed of what Emmett’s war criminal father Louis Till did to three white Italian women 75 years ago: rape two and murder a third?
     
    1. Because it's irrelevant to what happened to Emmett Till (what, were the guys who lynched him trying to avenge those Italian women?)

    2. Because Till's father was executed for his crime, whereas Till's murderers were exonerated for theirs. Justice was served in one case but not the other.

    Absolutely correct. The hoaxer's name is Timothy Tyson, and last I checked, he was a "history professor" at Duke.

    He was a ringleader in the Duke Lacrosse incident, trying to railroad the white kids, whom Tyson compared to “slavemasters”.

    "The recantation myth came from the book promotion of a guy who needed a hook to sell his 2017 Emmett Till book, even though everything about the case had already been definitively covered in a far better 2015 book. So the author gins up some free publicity by giving an exclusive to a fawning Vanity Fair reporter, who will break the “bombshell” that will move his book."

    It's possible that was the motive of the author. Equally possible, however, is that Bryant admitted what she said happened didn't occur the way it was made out to be. We will never know. Regardless, you are conveniently downplaying the fact that Till's case at the time was a turning point in the Civil Rights movement given that the murder was brutal in nature, that two men used vigilante "justice" to mete out "punishment" for an alleged breach of southern social etiquette, and that the all-white jury acquitted the men despite Till's uncle ID'ing the men and the recovery of a ring Till was wearing.

    There are too many noosed necks, charred bodies and drowned souls for them to deny knowing precisely what they are doing.

    But they aren’t. The continued public assault on black people, particularly black men, by the white public and by the police predates the pandemic and will outlast it. This racial street theater against black people is an endemic, primal feature of the Republic.

    Specifically, I am enraged by white women weaponizing racial anxiety, using their white femininity to activate systems of white terror against black men. This has long been a power white women realized they had and that they exerted.

    This was again evident when a white woman in New York’s Central Park told a black man, a bird-watcher, that she was going to call the police and tell them that he was threatening her life.

    “Bird watcher”.

    If this guy was out to watch birds, then I’m Jesse Jackson.

    The Black man picked a fight with a White woman walking alone, said and did some threatening things, scared the shit out her her, and got a panic response in return.

    Even after the panic response he refused to move on. He was clearly a threat and deserved to have the cops called on him.

    Unpopular fact: the vast majority of those charred bodies and nooses were entirely for freed-slave rapists and murderers that the post Civil War government refused to prosecute. These wandering men would rape women on the road, but sometimes break into their houses, kill their families, and rape them then.

    The Jewish press is trying to make it safe for Black men to intimidate and eventually to attack White women.

    The idea that anyone should be afraid of actually getting raped or murdered by a black man is portrayed as a racist myth.
     
    Who is saying that? Of course there are circumstances under which it's justifiable to be afraid of a black man; an argument over dog leashing with mild-mannered, obviously gay black birdwatcher isn't one of them. The point of all these incidents is that white people can unjustly harass and antagonize (and even kill) black people and get away with it. That's the difference between all the crap "Paul Kersey" posts and incidents like Emmett Till; Kersey's stories almost invariably result in an arrest and life sentence, whereas Till's murder did not. I know that many iSteve readers now seem to be taking the position that Till did grab Bryant and thus deserved to be lynched, but in the real world that's a fringe view, to say the least of it (especially since his murderers admitted that the main reason they did it was to make an example of him).

    Enough with the bird watching fiction. It is lazy creativity.

    This asshole had do treats in his pocket and no dog.

    An argument? First, no one should be having arguments with any stranger.

    In fact, they should be wary of their “friendly” conversations when they are attempted with women who are walking alone in parks.

    He made threatening statements and tried to lure her dog. He’s antisocial at minimum, but probably more than that.

    Her instincts were exactly correct and she had every reason to be terrified.

    To a small woman walking alone in a park, no man is “obviously gay”. Which is “obvious”.

    The point of all these incidents is that white people can unjustly harass and antagonize (and even kill) black people and get away with it.

    The point of a White woman being justly terrified of a Black man who picked a fight in a park is that White people can “unjustly harass and even kill” Black people?.

    You’re a gaslighting sociopath as well.

    How common is that mental affliction in the Black community?

    What are the comparative stats of Black men harassing, raping, or killing both White Women and Men in any given year?

    Your one off examples, no matter how truthful (but often they won’t be) can’t make up for the extreme multitudes of victims of your group’s violent crimes in civil society in each year.

    And you have to reach all the way back to Emmit Till. That’s utterly pathetic and it only highlights the ridiculous nature of your claims and that of the broader complaints of Blacks.

    Your god help you should we decide to make Saints out of even a miniscule percentage of White victims, in any given year! Let alone going back to the Emmit Till era.

    What a pathetic display of self pity and lack of self awareness by a clear group of sociopaths who couldn’t stop their high crime rate with all of the money in the world.

    Keep crying over that one dead man, and we’ll keep watching you people murder your way through your relatively charmed existence here.

    She had every reason to be terrified.

    Black people attempting to invert the truth of this situation for group gain will only have your entire group labeled as mentally strange and worthy of avoidance.

    Right now, there are White men, everywhere, telling White women that if a Black man talks to them they should put their head down and keep walking. No matter what.

    Friends? gone. Neighborly behavior? gone.

    When you people need to target White Women, and then invert the truth of the story, in order to gain political protection in targeting them, then you’ve lost your war and just don’t know it yet.

    Now you sound like Charles Blow. There is no "terror" against blacks in America and there is no terror against Karens either. Just because "Karens" are being called out on their bad behavior doesn't mean that they are going to be targeted for physical violence. Are Karens supposed to be like black people, where you are never allowed to call the cops on them because of what might happen when you do? Even in the case of this particular Karen, who is now the hate object of millions, no one has physically touched a hair on her head and the only one who did any violence to her dog baby was Karen herself.

    Calling out Karen is good, because it might cause Karen to reconsider whether she really is as special as she thinks she is. Karens don't need much prompting to imagine that they are being threatened but if the "threats" are coming from all directions then maybe Karen will reconsider whether SHE is the one who has to adjust HER behavior. (Getting blacks to consider whether the bad things that happen to them is in part caused by their own behavior is a lost cause, but there is hope for Karens). I'll bet Amy Cooper has been doing some soul searching and will never again be the Karen she once was.

    About 2 miles north of my old neighborhood (which had its own share of problems) was the formerly middle class, well kept and tightly knit community of Polytechnic Heights. The old Poly Freeway that bordered it was renamed Martin Luther King Freeway sometime ago.

    Scott Cummings, now a Sociology Professor at Louisville State University, was working with H.U.D. and Inner City Youth during the late 1970's and early 1980's. The Youth Center was located directly above the Senior Center. By proximity, Cummings was drawn into the plight of the Elderly White People falling victim to The Black Plague.

    Nearly 20 years later, Cummings published, "Left Behind in Rosedale; Race Relations and the Collapse of Community Institutions." The horrors that he documents are enough to make Stephen King's skin crawl. I have many of the old newspaper articles that I photocopied from the microfilm archives after reading the book.

    He tells of one old White Woman who was found in the bathtub when a group of Joggers entered her home. They picked her up by the chin and began to slap her around, demanding money. They punched her to the ground and kicked and stomped on her. The Joggers spray painted her genitals and killed her by shoving a fourteen inch wooden dowl down her throat.

    In a 3 month period between June and September of 1982, there were 46 White elderly victims of crime within a 30 block radius. Three Old White Women, ages 77, 80 and 94 were raped.

    Cummings wrote about an old White Man standing on the curb and helplessly watching Joggers load his furniture onto a truck. Another Old White Man was beaten to death at an intersection after leaving the grocery store while a crowd of Joggers stood by and watched. In addition to property crime, purse snatchings and routine harassment, the Old White People were regularly subjected to sheer terror and imminent mortal danger.

    The psychological effects were devastating. Longtime neighbors began to fear going out to get their mail, shopping or fraternizing with each other. Everyone had been a victim at one time or another, and everyone knew most of the people who had been raped and/or murdered. Cummings describes an Old White Woman who boarded up every room except the kitchen, living room and bathroom and moved hesitantly between those... certain that a Jogger was lurking in the other rooms waiting to pounce on her. Her nights were filled with trepidation until sleep eventually allowed her a brief escape from her immobilizing fright.

    When Cummings spoke to the Youth Director, he acknowledged there was a problem, but he shrugged it off by saying the problem would resolve itself in a few years; meaning the Old White People would die off. That is the attitude of our government, it is in line with that of the Negro Youth Director. They are waiting for us to die off.

    Thanks for the info, it confirms what I’ve experienced and what I have heard from others. It’s been going on a lot longer than people think (probably back to the slave days). I was born in the mid 1960’s and there was a guy on youtube who is at least 10 years older than me, he talks about the same issues when he was i kid. I don’t understand why more whites don’t understand, so many have been affected.

    You're Welcome. Please allow me to express my most sincere concern for your ordeal. I pray for your well being. I thought that hearing of others who have experienced similar trauma would at least remind you that You Are Not Alone.

    The Ku Klux Klan came into being because of the "outrages" that were perpetrated against White Women during Reconstruction. The film "Birth Of A Nation" (1915) was responsible for a revival of the Klan. It was screened in the White House by Woodrow Wilson, who said that it was all so true and a film that every red blooded American should see. He called it "writing history with lightning."

    Yes, there has long been a problem with Negroes attacking White Women, it is not a recent development, or even one that manifested itself during the Civil Rights Movement. Opposition to desegregation was mainly rooted in the knowledge of the primal and carnal impulses of the African in America.

    In "Soul On Ice," Eldridge Cleaver wrote of his lust for White Women. He said that he became a Rapist to take revenge on White People for the way Black Women were treated by Slave Owners. In order to build his confidence enough to "cross over the tracks," he practiced by raping Black Women. He wrote of his love/hatred for White Women. He claimed that it delighted him to violate the White Man's laws and defile his Women. A very sick and demented man, who was given a platform to spout his barbarous lunacy. The cover of my copy declares that it is "An American Classic!"

    Thanks. I happen to know where you're coming from. We're not allowed to tell our stories, even privately. It's considered racist to mention being a crime victim. One doesn't do that in polite company.

    The crimes themselves? Only racists think about those. The real crime is white people who talk about crime. And the sad part is that so many white people believe this.

    Replies: @Aurora

    This is so true, labeled a racist because you notice the outrageous amount of black crime. Yet when there is a white on black crime it is the end of the world. It reminds me of the video of the cop being beat up by the black guy and blacks are watching, they are all into the fight until the cop pulls his gun. We have a right to defend ourselves, but they see it as a crime. WTH.

    Except this isn’t Tammany Hall’s descendants we are dealing with. It’s the Progressive anti-machine mentality entirely.
     
    Here's why I said what I did. It's as much a fundamental re-descripition of US history as are R. Unz WW II articles, but it is actually based on commonplaces among political science professionals.

    That's what I thought until a few years back, right up until the introduction of a new version of Plunkett's/Riorden's book. The previous edition's introduction stated, as you did, that the Progressives were anti-Tammany. The new edition's introduction (and remember, both editions were intended for the college market, as the book was frequently assigned reading) said that, yes, the Progressives were anti-Tammany, but that this was actually generational. Tammany had written the laws and structural changes that made the Progressives possible. In a way, Progressives were just a Tammany faction.

    To get a feel for what happened, take a look at an appendix to Plunket's/Riordon's book, _Plunkett of Tammany Hall_, entitied something like "The strenuous life of a District Leader". The life described (from about 1900) is exhausting. The Dsitrict leader has to do everything himself; he doesn't have subordinates that he can trust, so he, himself, has to hand out every bit of poor relief, has to attend annual 4th of July celebrations, has to be the host to massive summertime parties, has to ensure medical care, has to get the party regulars out, etc. While the District leader clearly couldn't literally oversee everything, he was also clearly overstretched.
    In his book, Plunkett points out that all cities in the US at the time wee run by what the Press called "machines" and what Plunkett called "professionals" (See chapter "Reformers is Morning Glories"). Some cities were Republican, some were Democratic.
    The Progressives simply bureaucratized the process. Contemporary District leaders don't have to do much more than fend off other District leaders, and the Party workers have become public employees, for whom the District leader need do little more than vote pay raises. That's why the bureaucracy and the Deep State is political. Both Democrats and Republicans did this, but the Democrats did it a lot better (as Plunkett noted).
    The result was the diversion of immense amounts of money ("mother's milk of politics") from commercial / industrial processes to political processes. That's why the urban areas were able to accept the (inadequate) Federal replacement of their manufacturing / transshipment industries by Federal welfare payments. Tammany Hall just wasn't up to distributing that large a money flow. (I remember back when the welfare bureaucracy was greatly expanded in NYC back in the late 1960s to administer Federal money. The word was "Welfare is hiring", and fortunately I avoided working for there.)

    Way back in the 1960s, the general idea was that Democrats had the assignment of keeping the population more or less happy with daily life, and the Republicans were responsible for being competent. You still get that division in States that have Democrat legislators but Republican governors. Ideas like Modern Monetary Theory and Postmodernism state that competence is actually bad (either inhibits consumption or is an attempt at oppression or both), so this distinction has largely been lost. Still, it too was ancestral to our current system, which can be seen as Tammany writ large. The memory of competence, and hope, is what supports Trump.

    So that's it. Once US income had grown enough to make the Tammany District Leader system unworkable, it was bureaucratized. The US empire and decline of urban economic importance (to zero) funneled exceptionally large amounts of money into the welfare bureaucracy (and related bureaucracies), the whole thing was justified by the Civil Rights laws (see: Christopher Caldwell, _The Age of Entitlement_ for the fundamental restructuring of US society these laws actually were), and we get the current system. Which is almost over because it has let US capital stock and labor quality deteriorate enough to make maintenance of the US empire/political income impossible.

    And now we get to watch the cities fall, whether we want to or not. Trump's offer to quell the Minneapolis riot (and possible incipient riots in NYC and LA) _might_ quell riots, but it won't restore the cities to economic health, nor will it generate the political income needed to maintain/repair the cities. The most economically productive will flee, the urban infrastructure will continue to deteriorate.

    Too bad. I can remember when the cities, although near the end of their run as economically productive areas, were not on life support. It was better, but it's over now.

    Thanks for the very informative look. I’ll need to read Plunkett’s book, not just his famous speech.

    “Which is almost over because it has let US capital stock and labor quality deteriorate enough to make maintenance of the US empire/political income impossible.”

    Yes, that’s the issue. When I can go from Milan to Florence in 1:39 on an Italian rail system famous for inspiring the excuse for Mussolini (he made the trains run on time) for about $45, but it takes 3:45 to go the same distance from NY to BOS and for more money on the fast train (minimum $75), then we have invested far too much in a military/industrial complex.

    Trump threatened this group with his comment at a Republican debate: “we spent $4trl on the war in Iraq. How much better off would we have been if we had spent that money here, on infrastructure.” They REALLY don’t want their dollars cut off, not the military, not the intelligence agencies. But we are past the point of borrowing money to spend, since interest will shortly be equal to new borrowing, COVID party notwithstanding.

    When we cannot fund the military and threaten people, the dollar ends as global reserve currency, and with it the subsidy to the people who profit from that. Their world is ending, and we will live through interesting times.

    So anyway here we are now and I who have only excelled at f**king up have inherited enough money to see me out in the style I have become accustomed to .
     
    How much money was left to you, and were you counting on that inheritance in the end, while fucking up?

    Replies: @donut

    A lot more than I had and no , I actually had no idea it was coming . What got me through the six years from when I retired until I came into this money was just the dumb luck that I’m a gold nut and had purchased 40 ozs. when I was flush . Over the time from retiring until now I had to sell about 20 ozs. Plus a few guns , and this really broke my heart , a collection of ancient Greek coins from the various cities of Magna Gracia and some from the Greek mainland . I didn’t collect them as an investment but because they are exquisite works of art .

    I kept one like this : https://www.cointalk.com/attachments/sicily-entella-punic-issue-tetradrachm-cng-1-2007-jpg.452157/

    Because I always rooted for the Carthaginians , the Nazis and the Mets .
