Front and Center on NYTimes.com:

Are the Peaceful Marches protesting all the destruction done by the Armored Vehicles? Many paying NYT subscribers would like to believe something like that, so is the NYT going to rub their noses in the reality of what actually has been happening? I don’t think so.

  1. Paying to be blatantly lied to day in and day out? No thanks, I’ll spend the money on Snickers bars and Mountain Dew.

    BTW, Steve, I just read your latest Taki column. Since you mentioned you don’t watch much national news on TV, I want to apologize for my assumption that you do, when I noted your extreme Kung Flu worries of back in March – May. There are many people who do have the idiot plate on many hours of the day, so I commend you for keeping the thing off (at least the news – the rest contains more lies than people realize also …)

  2. I bet this is news to anyone outside Milwaukee– or even inside:

    We’ve had a situation in one of the suburbs of Milwaukee, an African American officer, police officer, recently shot a young, black man, African American male man, outside a shopping center.

    The police report said that the young man had a weapon in his hand and had 35 rounds of ammunition in his possession. There’s speculation that he was looking to do a lot more damage and violence than what actually happened.

    Communists killed two teenagers in Seattle in their occupied zone. The kid had every reason to fear for his life when they came after him.

    He made clean shots. Every person he hit was a Communist assailant. No innocent bystanders were harmed. He was also a "white Hispanic," like George Zimmerman.

    I feel most sorry for the instigator, who got shot in the head after being belligerent and saying "shoot me, nigga" before chasing the kid down and cornering him. He was clearly intellectually impaired. My heart goes out to his parents. I'm serious about that. The other Communists clearly thought they had the drop on the boy, and paid for it.

    He did amazing breakdance moves while expertly wielding a long gun and shooting people who were intent on maiming him for exercising his 2nd Amendment rights.

    A 17-year-old kid knew how to handle an AR (and pretty well, apparently), but he didn't have the experience and wisdom to realize that he was putting himself into a no-win situation. Just my opinion.

    And I wonder if he he stumbled because he was wearing slip-on boots.

    The leftists I know will grudgingly admit that some of the peaceful protests may have gotten out of hand, but there's absolutely no doubt that in every such case it's the white, right wing counter-protesters at fault.

    Pretty much like that. Didn't we all go through a phase when we believed much of what we read in the MSM? When we were young, perhaps? NYT readers are still in that phase. Most of them, for life.

  7. Surprise! Kenosha has been growing, at near-Sunbelt rates:

    The median age in the city was 33.5 years. 26.8% of residents were under the age of 18; 10.9% were between the ages of 18 and 24; 28.3% were from 25 to 44; 23.2% were from 45 to 64; and 10.8% were 65 years of age or older. The gender makeup of the city was 49.1% male and 50.9% female.

    The 2010 census reported that the city’s population were mainly newcomers, with 51 percent of Kenosha residents having moved from other cities and states. The Chamber of Commerce attributed this to the city’s museums, lakeshore attractions, cultural and work opportunities, its public-school system, transportation amenities, and relatively lower costs-of-living.

    The importance of manufacturing jobs in Kenosha continues to diminish with only 11.7 percent or 7,769 of the total workforce of 66,362 area residents involved, a decline of 22 percent since 1990 and much lower than the statewide percentage of 16.4 percent.

    The biggest surge in Kenosha employment by percentage has been in the white-collar workforce. In 1990, 3.2 percent of Kenosha’s workforce worked in the business and professional services sector. By 2017, that number had grown by over 490 percent to more than 7,700, or over 11 percent of Kenosha’s workforce – which far outpaced statewide growth of professional jobs – and which was largely fueled by new office developments in and near Kenosha.

    Racine is holding on, as well. One of those two cities was touted at the turn of the century for getting ahead of the deindustrialization trend. Kind of like Sweden, which rather than protect dying industries kills them off instead.

  12. ALL negroes need to be required to take and pass a course in how you act when you are dealing with the police, since they do so much crime and interact with police so much, and don’t understand why they keep getting shot, and cause this country so much trouble when they do get shot for NOT OBEYING SIMPLE COMMANDS. No other race does this, not whites, not Mexicans, not American Indians, and especially not Asians. No one in the media can even talk about something that you so obvious a kid can understand.

    Class or no class, Gary, these happenings are an EXCUSE to riot. If they can't find one excuse, they will find another. It's funny how almost all of the cases turn out to be not the best examples of what the riots are purportedly about anyway. There are plenty of cases of "muh authoritah" cops outright murdering people, but it seems most of these happened to White people.

    How do you know that they did not intend to beat him to death (or that would have been the result regardless of their intent)? When you are kicking someone in the head or beating them with a skateboard, it's hard to modulate your blows so that you only maim your victim and don't kill him.

    Since Rittenhouse was a vicious racist white person, he should have allowed himself to be beaten to death. It would have been better for everyone. Except for Rittenhouse. Everyone has a right of self defense except for racist white people.

  19. The kid had every reason to fear for his life when they came after him.

    Yea I think it was justified. They were about to beat him with a skateboard and take his gun.

    Of course the MSM is depicting it as a random shooting by a right winger.

    I’m guessing the story will drop once more people watch the video.

    @John Johnson

    The video of the initial incident at the auto-shop (?) is taken from some distance, and the kid and his (I assume) assailant were in darkness, so it's hard to tell what happened. The guy who got shot did appear to be the short, belligerent wigger from earlier in the evening.

    As to the second incident, which was captured on video from several different angles, the mob was clearly trying to kill him. Or at least that would be a reasonable inference on his part. One guy tried to (or did) kick him in the head. Another guy - the guy who got shot in the chest and died - whacked him across the neck and head with a skateboard. And the guy who about half got his arm blown off had approached the kid with a drawn pistol.

    I'm certainly not an expert, but I have to say that kid reacted like a pro. Do the Seals or Deltas have a junior auxilliary?

    The leftists I know will grudgingly admit that some of the peaceful protests may have gotten out of hand, but there’s absolutely no doubt that in every such case it’s the white, right wing counter-protesters at fault.

    Are the Peaceful Marches protesting all the destruction done by the Armored Vehicles?

    Pretty much like that. Didn’t we all go through a phase when we believed much of what we read in the MSM? When we were young, perhaps? NYT readers are still in that phase. Most of them, for life.

    The kid had every reason to fear for his life when they came after him.

    Yea I think it was justified. They were about to beat him with a skateboard and take his gun.

    Of course the MSM is depicting it as a random shooting by a right winger.

    I'm guessing the story will drop once more people watch the video.

    Replies: @Mr. Anon

    The video of the initial incident at the auto-shop (?) is taken from some distance, and the kid and his (I assume) assailant were in darkness, so it’s hard to tell what happened. The guy who got shot did appear to be the short, belligerent wigger from earlier in the evening.

    As to the second incident, which was captured on video from several different angles, the mob was clearly trying to kill him. Or at least that would be a reasonable inference on his part. One guy tried to (or did) kick him in the head. Another guy – the guy who got shot in the chest and died – whacked him across the neck and head with a skateboard. And the guy who about half got his arm blown off had approached the kid with a drawn pistol.

    I’m certainly not an expert, but I have to say that kid reacted like a pro. Do the Seals or Deltas have a junior auxilliary?

    Thanks for the suggestions, Redneck. Really, I try to lay off the sugar and caffeine (which is much less of a problem for me to do), but my serious point was is that money being spent on any trivial thing is lots better than it being spent on the NY Times, cable TV to support and ENCOURAGE those who hate me.

    ALL negroes need to be required to take and pass a course in how you act when you are dealing with the police, since they do so much crime and interact with police so much, and don't understand why they keep getting shot, and cause this country so much trouble when they do get shot for NOT OBEYING SIMPLE COMMANDS. No other race does this, not whites, not Mexicans, not American Indians, and especially not Asians. No one in the media can even talk about something that you so obvious a kid can understand.

    Replies: @Achmed E. Newman

    Class or no class, Gary, these happenings are an EXCUSE to riot. If they can’t find one excuse, they will find another. It’s funny how almost all of the cases turn out to be not the best examples of what the riots are purportedly about anyway. There are plenty of cases of “muh authoritah” cops outright murdering people, but it seems most of these happened to White people.

    He did amazing breakdance moves while expertly wielding a long gun and shooting people who were intent on maiming him for exercising his 2nd Amendment rights. In a just world, he would follow the trajectory of Audie Murphy and become a cinematic heartthrob. But this is not a just world that we are currently living in.

    How do you know that they did not intend to beat him to death (or that would have been the result regardless of their intent)? When you are kicking someone in the head or beating them with a skateboard, it’s hard to modulate your blows so that you only maim your victim and don’t kill him.

    Since Rittenhouse was a vicious racist white person, he should have allowed himself to be beaten to death. It would have been better for everyone. Except for Rittenhouse. Everyone has a right of self defense except for racist white people.

    I agree with all of your points--and at least one of his attackers appeared to be chasing him with a pistol.

    However, I think it's legal to use lethal force against someone intent on merely maiming you.

    Surprise! Kenosha has been growing, at near-Sunbelt rates:

    The median age in the city was 33.5 years. 26.8% of residents were under the age of 18; 10.9% were between the ages of 18 and 24; 28.3% were from 25 to 44; 23.2% were from 45 to 64; and 10.8% were 65 years of age or older. The gender makeup of the city was 49.1% male and 50.9% female.

    The 2010 census reported that the city's population were mainly newcomers, with 51 percent of Kenosha residents having moved from other cities and states. The Chamber of Commerce attributed this to the city's museums, lakeshore attractions, cultural and work opportunities, its public-school system, transportation amenities, and relatively lower costs-of-living.

    The importance of manufacturing jobs in Kenosha continues to diminish with only 11.7 percent or 7,769 of the total workforce of 66,362 area residents involved, a decline of 22 percent since 1990 and much lower than the statewide percentage of 16.4 percent.

    The biggest surge in Kenosha employment by percentage has been in the white-collar workforce. In 1990, 3.2 percent of Kenosha's workforce worked in the business and professional services sector. By 2017, that number had grown by over 490 percent to more than 7,700, or over 11 percent of Kenosha's workforce - which far outpaced statewide growth of professional jobs - and which was largely fueled by new office developments in and near Kenosha.

    Racine is holding on, as well. One of those two cities was touted at the turn of the century for getting ahead of the deindustrialization trend. Kind of like Sweden, which rather than protect dying industries kills them off instead.

    In a properly functioning, healthy society, law enforcement would have prevented this chaos. True, we don't have much of that in 2020.

    A 17-year-old kid knew how to handle an AR (and pretty well, apparently), but he didn't have the experience and wisdom to realize that he was putting himself into a no-win situation. Just my opinion.

    And I wonder if he he stumbled because he was wearing slip-on boots.
