From the Washington Post news section:

A mass shooting on Thursday at a Kroger supermarket in Collierville, at least the third to happen at a grocery store in recent months, killed one person and wounded more than a dozen. The gunman, identified by police as UK Thang, committed suicide. It comes amid an already terrible year for gun violence nationwide.

A Washington Post analysis of data from the Gun Violence Archive, a nonprofit research organization, found that gunfire killed more than 8,100 people in the United States in the first five months of this year, about 54 lives lost per day — a rate higher than the average toll during the same period of the previous six years. The number of gunfire deaths has increased in suburban and rural areas, though the overall numbers are lower because of smaller populations.

2020 was the deadliest gun violence year in decades. So far, 2021 is worse.

Gun violence experts took note of the muted response to the Tennessee attack: The nation relatively ignored a shooting at a grocery store that had the potential to be far worse than it already was. In the case of the Atlanta-area spa shootings and the grocery store attack in Boulder, Colo., this year, lawmakers, advocates and the media sprung into action, writing hundreds of stories, introducing new legislation and reigniting public debate over gun laws.

The Kroger shooting aftermath has had very little of that.

“It felt like this one barely happened or registered for many,” said Jillian Peterson, co-founder of the Violence Project, a research center that studies gun violence. “The fact that this is so routine that it’s not even a major headline, and we don’t even blink an eye when this keeps happening, is heartbreaking.”

Hmmmhmmmhmm … what could be the reasons for the lack of media attention to UK Thang’s mass shooting?

  1. Because, while UK Thang shot 15 people, he only murdered one. If the media were to go into hyperdrive over every one dead/many wounded mass shootings, it would be full of black unwanted party guest incidents each weekend.
  2. The press went insane over the white guy in the Atlanta spa shooting killing 6 Asians (as well as two miscellaneous) at a time when it was trying to blame the upsurge in black-on-Asian violence on Trump saying the words “China Flu” a year before. The Boulder shooter initially was thought to be another white man before it turned out he was named Ahmad Al Aliwi Al-Issa, at which point the press lost interest.
  3. The Collierville shooter was a refugee from Burma named UK Thang. ‘Nuf said.

    UK Thang could be a black rapper.

    Mr Sailer,

    Fistly, a further possible reason he’s not a stop press front page (inter)national news is he was just a Karen (stress on second syllable); and not a Karen (stress on first syllable).

    Secondly, it’s a Burmese thang. You wouldn’t understand whitey.

  5. Maybe Sailer’s law of mass shootings is whites vs minorities instead of whites vs blacks?

    Just rented (but bailed after 30 minutes), the triplets documentary you recommended. Felt it was kind of milking limited material (an issue with many documentaries).

    Your comments about Darwinian evolution of documentaries were interesting, but I feel like I’d get more analysis and even a better narrative in an above average Sailer article than in the triplets vid. Sorry. I mean it wasn’t awful. But still not awesome.

    My all time best documentary remains Cracking the Maya Code. Very interested in more documentaries as good as that. Any suggestions?

    (I do get the impression, that sometimes you put a little thumb on the scale for movies that click with your interests. Now, I’m actually fine, and impressed, with the emphasis on discussion of the issues versus quality of the movie. That’s fine. But it does seem a little like you compromise the quality assessment based on having a topic that interests you or a message you like. E.g. Idiocracy.)

    Same reason that criminal negro David Burke got hardly any newsplay in 1987 when he hijacked and aircraft and caused it to crash, killing 40-some people in one fell swoop.

    His action had huge ramifications behind the scene–it affected a lot of policy, but most people know nothing about it. 1987 is when all the happy clappy cuckservatives were fapping to Bill Cosby and Michael Jackson and “race relations were so good”. LOL.

    From press reports “Thang was described as a third-party vendor of Kroger”

    What is a third party vendor in a supermarket? I have heard the term used for comparatively upscale employees like IT, but am wondering if Kroger was running a scam by classifying workers as ‘third party’.

    Agreed, but also died.

    Memphis is one of the “refugee” dumpsites along, with Maine and Minnesota, in the replacement invasions and racial war on Americans by the US government and fifth column within it. No coincidence there.

    Distinct but related issue is the consolidation in South and East Asia of the ethnic military states of Myanmar, Thailand, China, North Korea, Vietnam. (and client states like Laos and Cambodia )

    Further South Korea and Taiwan will likely be vassalized in the near future, as they were historically. Its already clear they cannot defend against Chinese military force and the US retreat into chaotic internal strife and decline were whites are deposed eliminates the last threat.

    This is a clear distinct model now in the fastest growing economic region of the world.

    Nah. It was the same old legislation they couldn’t get thru before. They were hoping to exploit murder to get their agenda passed.

    And public debate wasn’t reignited. The Left has poisoned the well. With gun and ammo shortages, the police facing defunding, and governments’ failing to protect their people, there are MILLIONS of new 2A supporters.

  11. You’ll note the Post article (quoted) makes no mention of the demographics of the perps. It DOES comment at length about those nasty guns and the efforts to regulate them. This is boilerplate journalism for the Post and its ilk. Using the same logic, if they reported a multi-car pileup on the highway, they would make no mention of the driver at fault, but instead concentrate on the labor and business policies of an automaker as somehow being a factor.

    The media coverage of the spa killings was appalling, not only because they played up the anti-white #StopAsianHate angle but because the media mostly ignored the non-oriental victims

    The Collierville shooter was a refugee from Burma named UK Thang.

    In my opinion, he should be named UN Thang.

  19. Sean says:

    Affluent whites have journalists so they can keep control of the society without needing to have death squads. Non affluent whites constitute a potentially formidable group that is the most dangerous to the elite’s continued control. So working whites get targeted for what they are, not what they do. It will never be over until white identity is destroyed.

    Highly recommend to slog through and read Burmese Days by Orwell. It is depressing, but has its moments. And the anonymous letters remind me a lot of recent events like Russiagate.

    Also, I don’t think Orwell was anti-Burmese. He’d been there and thought the imperialists were stupid. He actually was very interested in some parts of the culture. But he didn’t romanticize the natives either. Think he saw well the failings of men.*

    *Which means men and women. I’m old enough to use terms like that.

  25. Anononym says:

    You could also add that it probably isn’t getting much attention because the perpetrator was a refugee. At a time when “refugees” from Haiti and Afghanistan are much in the news, and even many Republican politicians are begging for them to come here.

    Wouldn’t want to point out that not all refugees spend their lives prostrate in gratitude for having been allowed in to America. Some are quite happy to kill us anyway.

    No other customer at Kroger’s in Tennessee, a constitutional carry state, was armed? Surprising and disappointing if true. The Commercial Appeal said he “was found at the back of the store killed by what officials believe was a self-inflicted gunshot.” Unfortunately, we cannot rule out an agenda on the part of the MSM, and even the police spokesman, so that may or may not be the actual story.

  28. dearieme says:

    UK Thang is such a wonderful name (I almost said “colourful” but that might be misinterpreted in the US) that the story surely deserves heaps of coverage.

    To flog an obvious point: how does a “refugee” from Burma reach the US? Presumably he must have crossed other countries in which he could have taken refuge. Doesn’t that make him an (illegal?) economic migrant rather than a refugee?

    Why???? Because they need the space for articles about the racism of reporting about missing (murdered) blue-eyed blond white women.

    From Trenton, NJ Times:

    Prejudice drives U.S. missing person policies. Name me a missing African American woman. Latina? Asian? Indigenous?

    Yeah, did not think any persons would surface. The media continues a deplorable history of discriminatory coverage of missing or dead blond, blue-eyed, allegedly attractive women.

    The death of Gabrielle “Gabby” Petito reignited calls for media, law enforcement and society to cover and care about nonwhite women gone missing or found murdered by the hands of persons unknown.

    Plus, relatives and family members of murdered and missing minority men have raised their voices about the disproportionate responses for Caucasian women.

    While the Black Lives Matter movement causes raucous rancor, one should understand these incongruent reactions for missing Caucasian women gives credence to BLM initiatives.

    First thing or thang I thought of w/ this post was the legend of the Central Park wilders in ’89 rehearsing “Wild Thing” by Tone Loc in the pokey (the media really enjoyed this detail at the time). The second, soberer analysis I had was that a ramp-up in SE Asian typographical zaniness is probably due, right? As a kid I remember being amused by emeritus U.N. Sec. Gen. named U Thant — modern website forms that prohibit you from abbreviating your name would’ve been hell for him, if he hadn’t already died in 1974 of course. I didn’t particularly like my own given name so thought I’d like going by a single capitalized letter too. I also prefer “Unnamed” to “Anonymous” btw. Society must change to suit my predilections.

  38. So now the establishment media has articles of perplexion, about the wildly differing attention murderous events generate in the establishment, and conclude it’s a muddle or we’re all so inured.

    I’d say “psuedo-perplexion”, except it probably isn’t. Many of these “journalists” are so thoroughly immersed in their bubble–and not very bright or analytical–that they honestly aren’t aware of what their own media outlet does. Willful learned ignorance.

    OT: one of the more perplexing things about today’s economy is why so many companies are having a very difficult time finding workers even as working from home and Delta fears and other factors are continuing to wreak havoc on the economy. According to Federal Reserve official Esther George (whom everyone here will call “Esther,” of course), a major factor is what can be termed the lack of returning retirees.
    For decades, it’s been common for many recently retired people to go back to work, often part time, when they find they need more income and/or that retirement can be boring. As a result of Covid, however, this source of labor has almost entirely dried up. Retail and food service, among the areas hardest hit by labor shortages, were not coincidentally among the field in which returning retirees most often found work.

    To hardened neo Marxist propaganda pros — i.e. the entire establishment media — tragedies are best employed in pushing the Narrative.

    Not every similar event gets similar media coverage.

    So this disparity in coverage is no surprise, or accident.

    Plus, the media stooges get lazy sometimes and overlook events or minimize.

    Now they are faced with whitewashing the coming flood of Afghan and Haitian “migrants” who will soon be acting out their fantasies against heritage Americans in various ways. So perhaps scare stories about foreigners killing citizens isn’t the right preparation for that.

    There will be plenty of conflict with locals when dusky gibberish talking strangers start hitting the welfare stops. It’s going to be tough to fabricate the correct Narrative and blame Trump for all of the violence when it will be perpetrated mainly by non Whites.

    Insofar as I can see retirees playing a role it’s that they never retire.
    People rightly dislike what work has become.
    The point of hiring Pajeets wasn’t to pay less for the same work. Pajeets were brought in to be the managers (and professors, and authors, and experts, but, in the workplace, the managers, etc) because they do not question power, they treat everyone underneath them like is-there-going-to-be-a-fistfight garbage, and their culture is fingerpointing. They are in other words a bad CEO’s dream, from the 16 hour day, Reagan revolution, “I better be seeing pizza deliveries because nobody ever eats dinner at home” period that generated workplace shootings (“going postal”). This is happening at the same time that there is a tremendous drop-off in native qualification in general and an influx of frankly unassimilable borderline criminals, who know about America only that they expect to be treated well and get rich here. I don’t see a good end here, but everybody respectable wants you to die violently, and Trump wants you to get the vaccine and welcome every legal immigrant.

    The Dems are counting on this to discourage restaurant employees, etc., from seeking work, so that they can point to the “labor shortage” as a reason why we need Haitian/Afghani/Mexican immigrants, to do the jobs we lazy American bastids won’t do.

    Supermarkets sometimes contract out certain non-core functions to third parties. The sushi bar, which Thang operated, is a classic example, other common ones include merchandising resets, free sample handouts, Starbucks and other coffee shops, pharmacies, and floral departments. It varies from company to company.
    Based on how supermarkets operate, Thang probably was not permanently assigned to this Kroger and did not make the sushi himself.. More likely he brought the sushi to the store and arranged it each day, one of the multiple stores on his route, with the actual preparation being the responsibility of chefs at a central facility.

    Fact is, this is yet another way in which skyrocketing african violence serves the purposes of the Ruling Class. Simply note how Group X is victimized, then pin it all on white people. Subtly or blatantly–when you own the megaphone, it really doesn’t matter.

    Remember how doctors who die during the lockdown should get statues, Steve? Remember Healthcare Heroes? Remember Superman ripping apart his clothing and handing it to a nurse who was probably at that point thinking about calling security?
    Of course you remember that. That’s exactly what those Nazis wanted.
    The truth is, this is no longer war. This is cold-blooded murder. Until now, the war has been conducted with honor, and bravery; with the ideals of truth and justice, in the best traditions of mankind — until this moment. Brothers and sisters, the endless catalogue of bestial atrocities — which will inevitably ensue from this appalling act — must, can, and will be terminated. The spread will be stopped. The curve will be dulled. The forces of darkness and treasonable maggots, who call themselves nurses, who collaborate with the virus, must, can, and will be wiped from the face of the earth. We must crush them. We must smash them. We must stamp them out.
    NY gov to nurses: you are replaceable!

    Why???? Because they need the space for articles about the racism of reporting about missing (murdered) blue-eyed blond white women.

    There is no shortage of stories to be told about missing women of color. Unfortunately, they often involve drugs and/ or prostitution. And pretty much ALWAYS involve a POC (perpetrator of color).

    It just doesn’t fit the narrative.

    If they ever find an innocent young black woman murdered by a white guy, there will be no end to the stories written about it. Your grandchildren’s grandchildren will be learning about in school 100 years from now.

    The pilot of the Malaysian B-777 who crashed the jet, securely locking out the rest of the cockpit crew, then depressurizing the passenger cabin (he had a separate oxygen system), first incapacitating everybody, with them all dying shortly thereafter of anoxia; and then programming the auto-pilot (after manually shutting down all GPS locator pingers); intentionally running out of fuel thousands of miles off the normal flightpath, thereby dumping the jet into a place in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Australia where the water was five miles deep.

    He had programmed the whole thing through in advance on a very sophisticated flight simulator computer installation that he had in his house. What he didn’t know was the turbofan jet engines themselves used GPS/satellite communication to regularly post operational info, including positional data, back to the manufacturer.

    The precipitating factor was that the aircraft commander had attended that day or the day before in person the hoked-up sodomy re-trial of new-age Islamicist Anwar Ibrahim, of whom he was a deeply engaged follower. Anwar’s previous kangaroo court sodomy convictions were stage-managed by repeat offender President/Prime Minister of Malaysia, Dr. Mahatir, maybe a slightly less hip Islamist than Anwar but a way more out-front Jooo hater.

    Somehow Anwar was in due course sprung from jail by Mahatir —through a cats-paw traditional Malay royal who had the power of pardoning criminals— under a bizarre time-sharing arrangement stipulating that Mahatir would do the first half of his elected term, and then Anwar the second half.

    So far, now some years after Anwar’s half-term was to begin, he apparently never quite took up the reins and Mahatir is still running the country.

    And no, I didn’t commit suicide.

    Given that he was such an inaccurate shooter, his rap name should have been “Wild Thang”.

    Maybe UK Thang was seriously annoyed with all the PC locals saying he was from Myanmar.

    CA taxpayers are already on-the-hook for the significant cost of babysitting Afghan immigrant kids, with many more such cases coming soon. I don’t remember seeing any ballot question that asked the state’s voters whether they think that’s OK.

    Why can’t those newcomers all live at Gruesome’s winery in Napa, Pelosi’s estate in Marin, or Feinstein’s mansion at Tahoe?

    under a bizarre time-sharing arrangement

    Hardly bizarre in an ennearchy, where nine royals take turns.

    That wreck was estimated to be somewhere near the southeast 45-90 point. I took my boys to the hamlet of Poniatowski this summer to experience its northwest antipode. We were literally a world away, but it didn’t cross our minds.

    Looks as though Souverneva may be one among the latest breed of “eco-warrior evangelists” who has determined that no price it too high to pay when it comes to getting us to “act on global warming”.

    “Souverneva graduated from Palo Alto High School in 2009 and the California Institute of Technology in 2012 with degrees in chemistry and biology…

    After enrolling in a Ph.D. program at the State University of New York’s College of Environmental Science and Forestry she worked in medicinal chemistry as a research associate at the biotech companies Gilead Sciences in Foster City and Nanosyn in Santa Clara.”

  87. I went to the Kern county fair this weekend. The corn dogs were good, but the air quality was probably some of the worst I’ve ever seen. In the Central valley of California, there was a perpetual haze of smoke blotting out the sun and the moon at night. It was really creepy breathing in all of that ash.

    Not a mask to be found at any restaurant or bar in Bakersfield… interesting….!

    In Australia their Immigration Dept caseworker will be a white lezzo who will word them up about how racist Australians are, right off the plane.
    So they start off scared, which makes them potentially dangerous.
    Likely the same thing happens in America.
