If you type “#HoustonLynching” in Twitter’s search engine, hundreds and hundreds of tweets appear. Thousands more appear under the hashtags “#Lynchings” and “#Lynched.” Social media activists supporting the Black Lives Matter movement have spread a terrifying story: Evil racists are hanging black men from trees across the country.

In the wake of the George Floyd incident in Minnesota and three weeks of riots, America is in the grips of a purported epidemic of white supremacist violence that harkens back to the Jim Crow era with noose-wielding Klansman lurking on every corner.

Except that it’s all a big fat lie.

Actress Deborah Brooks exclaimed: “Their (sic) LYNCHING our Black men and no one is screaming like hell! So I will, the white racists are LYNCHING OUR BLACK MEN! California, Houston Chicago.”

Ray McClusky, whose Twitter bio sports #EndRacism and #VeteransResist identifiers, fumed: “There’s no way they are suicide or coincidence. I think they are all connected & are serial murders by lynching. White supremacists are terrorizing the black community.”

Self-described “foundational Black American” Tariq Nasheed raged that “cops are working with white supremacists” to cover up the “lynchings.”

Rebecca Smirnov demanded to know: “Why isn’t the press reporting on these lynchings … How many more must die before the press connects the deaths? Who is investigating the #Lynchings?”

A BLM activist who calls himself “SJPeace” posited: “It can’t be a coincidence. There is no reason to rule out that these were racial terror lynchings! BLACK LIVES MATTER!”

Just a few teeny, tiny problems.

The “black man” in the Houston suburb of Shady Acres who was allegedly a “lynching” victim was, in fact, a Hispanic adult male “whose family said he was suicidal,” according to local authorities.

Moreover, of the other four alleged lynching victims lumped together by social justice propagandists:

—Bronx native Dominique Alexander was found on June 9 in a Manhattan Park. His death was ruled a suicide. The family has declined to comment publicly except to disclose that they are grieving and loved Alexander.

Robert Fuller of Palmdale, California, had been the subject of a missing persons flyer describing him as having a “history of mental illness” before his body was discovered June 10 hanging from a tree.

Malcolm Harsch of Victorville, California, was found hung from a tree in his homeless encampment 10 days before Fuller on May 31. His death was initially reported to police by his girlfriend who lived with him in a tent. Law enforcement authorities did not recover any evidence from the scene suggesting foul play. Family members who have stirred conspiracy theories in the media live across the country in Ohio. Harsch reportedly had both a long-distance wife and the girlfriend.


TeTe Otis Gulley was a black, transgender homeless person who was found hanging from a tree in a park on May 27. He had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. The suicide rate for transgenders, according to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, is nearly 10 times the national average. More than 40% of transgender men and women in the U.S. have attempted to take their own life.

Fact: On average, one person dies by suicide every 11 minutes in the U.S.

Fact: In 2014, according to the American Association of Suicidology, “2,421 African Americans died by suicide in the U.S. … The overall suicide rate per 100,000 was 5.46.”

Fact: Hangings accounted for 26% of suicides in 2010, up from 19% at the start of the decade, according to a Johns Hopkins study published just last fall.

But let’s not let facts, or the utter lack of them, get in the way of expedient narratives to paint our country as irredeemably bigoted and unsafe for non-whites. Mainstream outlets from Voice of America to National Public Radio to The New York Times and CBS have all failed to tamp down the lynching hysteria. Prominent, Twitter-verified influencers are fueling this Mother of All Hate Crime Hoaxes, too.

Left-wing billionaire Tom Steyer baldly asserted: “Black people are literally still being lynched in this country.”

Liberal writer and “comedian” Tony Posnanski tossed his echo into the chamber: “Five African Americans were lynched this week.”

And Democratic Rep. Joe Kennedy III lamented: “These horrifying deaths of Black men conjure up the worst racist sins of our nation’s past.”

Here’s the ultimate truth: Fear-mongering opportunists and anarchy vultures don’t care about the dead black men they are using to advance their America-smearing agenda. Instead of confronting the nation’s suicide, homelessness and pandemic crises, we have callous race hustlers connecting random dots of real tragedies and conjuring up invisible hangmen to stir more hatred and division.

Somehow, all these conspiracy theorists have escaped the increasingly authoritarian regime of Silicon Valley thought policing, “moderation” tools or algorithmic discrimination directed at any who dare criticizes BLM. On Tuesday, NBC News pressured Google to demonetize The Federalist and ZeroHedge websites because liberal activist reporters didn’t like the rival media outlets’ coverage of BLM violence. There’s only thing hanging from the end of the rope at the hands of an out-of-control lynch mob:

The credibility of American journalism is swinging in the wind. R.I.P.

  6. This is just the standard reporting of the Jew controlled MSM whores. What else could you expect? They don’t report news but instead spin propaganda for the Zionists. Like Assad using gas against his own people or the constant lies about WMD’s and all the fake shootings like Sandy Hook and Los Vegas, the recent Arbery incident and now the Floyd case. Global warming (I mean climate change) never took hold but the Zionists had spectacular success with the fake virus used to cover up the latest bailout for the super rich. I still see lots of idiot cucks going around with masks on. They should wear them for the rest of their lives. Must really be nice in this Texas heat.

    Rothschild employee J.P. Morgan originally bought editorial control over the top 20 newspapers in the country in order to smear the Germans in preparation for WW1. 21,000 millionaires and billionaires were made in this conflict. We know because of the new unconstitutional graduated income tax reports. A plank of communist (Jew) manifesto. Now the 5 MSM networks are all under Jew control. If you are going to contrive and fake things all the time like is done in Jewmerica then you have to control the media. How else could the Zionists sell all the goyim on the all the wars for Israel and manufacture great patriotic spectacles like 911. Most people don’t think very in depth about any of this. Better to just keep sucking air through their masks and do what the wonderful people in the government tell them.

  10. Jake says:

    It is not new for blacks, and white Liberals, to claim that black suicides, especially hanging suicides, are lynchings by whites.

    A couple decades ago a young black man hanged himself in MS, and Jesse Jackson among many others proclaimed that it had to have been a lynching because suicide is a white thing not a black thing.

  11. conatus says:

    Lynching is usually thought of as a blacks-only affair, but according to the Tuskegee Institute there were a fair number of whites lynched also. The whites were mostly lynched in the western states.
    “The Tuskegee Institute has recorded the lynchings of 3,446 blacks and 1,297 whites between 1882 and 1968,”If you consider the fact that blacks murder at 7 times the rate of whites, backed up by the Victimization survey, these numbers are not that disproportionate, however the pictures of lynchings are pretty gross and usually of black men.

    The actually Lynchings have been delayed due to a shortage of the appropriate rope. As any respectable Klansman knows from our Kloran, “only certain kinds pure hemp rope can be used for a lynching.” The coronavirus shutdown has impacted the importation of hemp rope from Canada but we have undercover agents in route as I write this to obtain sufficient quantities and distribute to the regional Klaverns. Also, as has been our experience the dead heat of summer is the best time for lynchings as the hanging corpse develops a distinctive odor which has a greater impact on anyone within a certain distance. They tend to remember that odor longer than the sight.

    I can’t agree with Browning on the printing press, but agree with you on the Internet, which has made libraries and book reading obsolete. The Information Age is lowering critical and rational thought, as well as our collective IQ. Your final sentence about the civilization-destroying riots is spot on.

    In a time of increasing use of surveillance and facial identification, wouldn’t it be useful to become accustomed to wearing a mask? I mean, of course we can be identified by our unique gait or tracked in other ways, but if they allow us to make it harder for some people to track us, why not take advantage of the new freedoms?

    I mean, isn’t it interesting how you have come to think that it’s a strong and independent and wise adult who goes about exposing his face to the unblinking eye of the state? Yet it’s Zorro who wears the mask . . .

    I haven’t thought about this at your depth so you tell me.

    Will turn 59 next month and have been racially aware since my teens and have been “woke” to the JQ since the 1990s. Once you are truly AWAKENED, all this is so OBVIOUS and you wonder how anyone can be so stupid to keep falling for this time after time. The JEWISH CONTROLLED AND RUN media has been LYING to Americans for DECADES if not a CENTURY or more. I even fell for “the most serial killers are White” mantra until finding out relatively recently that there tons of Black and Brown serial killers out there that most of us have never even heard of or read about. One reason no doubt is that most of these Black serial killers killed all or mostly White victims, more than often the victims are White women.

    “White racists” and “White Supremacists” are the least of American citizens concerns. White on Black violence is about as rare as a winning Powerball Lottery ticket. Hell, most Whites are too scared to even disagree with a Black person much less physically attack them. I live in a small town that is probably at least 90% White in “racist” and “redneck” Georgia, and I see Black ladies walking alone all the time, and they feel completely safe here. Okay, lets reverse this one. Place a White lady in an all Black area and see what happens. At the very least, that lady will be verbally harassed, the worst case scenario is rape or murdered. I frequent a gym here and occasionally a Black person will come in to workout in a gym full of Whites. That Black person feels completely at ease, is not harassed at all. Now reverse this scenario. Would a White person be made to feel at ease while working out in a gym full of Blacks? haha. I think we all know the answer. “White Supremacists?” Nah, but there are indeed Jewish Supremacists and Black racists out there who are FULL OF HATE.

    Hi Polemos: To me the masks are a sign that you are buying into the fake virus narrative. You may know that this virus fraud was laid out by the Rockefeller Foundation in 2012. It was not sprung until the Elite needed a cover for another huge wealth transfer to the super rich under the cover of the fake virus. The last big theft was the bank bailout of 08.

    We must stand up to the Zionist tyranny not cooperate. They are conditioning the goyim for more psyops to come. Everything the gov. does is a lie and a fraud. I was surprised that so many idiots fell for this crap. As I understand it the governors in most states have 30 days emergency powers unless extended by the legislature. That has not happened in any state so it is long expired. People should welcome the opportunity to get a citation and go to court. They have no legal standing and I don’t think outside of the fake news that anyone has been fined.

    Now the MSM whores have switched back to the race card with the Floyd Fraud. People should be used to this by now. The Zionists failed with the global warming scam but the fake virus was a home run.

    The Zionists use the problem, reaction, solution and the thesis-antethisis (Hegelian Dialectic) as their favorite tools to subvert society. In the past when things deteriorated enough then the system was overthrown with the Elites going down with the rest. They intend to install the U.N. Agenda 2030 in order to create a system from which there is no escape . These are some of my thoughts I welcome yours.

    I am a 67 year old farmer from Texas. I have been married for 42 years. I have studied history and government quite a bit. People need to understand that in all major societies at all times their are groups of people that do not want to compete in the market but want society to work for them. The only path to achieve this goal is through the acquisition of gov. power. There have been many groups involved in conspiracies to accomplish this objective in many countries at different periods of history.

    There is a new factor. One group has reached international proportions and now is close to achieving control over all areas of the world and over all the countries. This group is what is commonly referred to as the Zionists. This group is responsible for the world wars and almost all of the conflicts. They already control the leaders of most major countries. They are now working to centralize and coordinate the people of all the countries into regional control under the U.N. Sustainable Development Initiative known as Agenda 2030-21. Tell me about yourself.

    My point was/is that wearing a mask in public was previously a sign of hooliganism or anarchism (eg., ever notice that antifa folks wore masks when they committed their acts of defiance before and still do?). Masks obviously make it difficult for (cheaper) surveillance and identification, and the folks who most want us surveiled are the ones you’re saying are behind Agenda 2030. Why not take advantage of the (forced) change in attitudes towards wearing masks in public and reduce one’s exposure to surveillance?

    Also, have you actually read Hegel? Who told you that Hegel’s dialectics is “problem reaction solution”? Where does he use any language close to that?

    Did you look for this yourself in any of Hegel’s works to see if, perhaps, you are not the one being molded into yet another useful clone being given only a surface of a deeper truth? From my perspective, you’re not saying things that I haven’t found among many other folks who also aren’t thinking freely and independently, as you’re expressing the same formulaic phrases and idioms they do (“Problem Reaction Solution”, often referencing Hegel). If you are parroting lines, who keeps you in their cage?

    I too am interested in others’ thoughts. I am not sure, though, my thoughts are really ever mine, and reading and doing philosophy really messed up my ability to ever think I’m as free to be me as I used to think. Having noticed chains on my hands and around my throat, metaphors guiding my thoughts handed to me by instruction and traditions, I try to turn and look past The Wall, to those who use flickering shadows for meanings to my words and who stoke the flame.

    Even if I do manage to turn away, and do manage to see a hint of true light, there’s still that long climb out, and up, and across the rough rocks of discipline and leadership and geometry.

    It depends on how you measure literacy. I was quoting the tests that used the International Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies. Some tests measure very basic ability to read, while other tests measure the ability to use cognitive and memory functions of the brain.

  24. It is good to question things but people can get caught up in too much philosophical abstractions. Hegal’s philosophy was taught by Leo Strauss Prof. at the the Univ. of Chicago and scion of Neo Con dogma that laid the ground work for 911 and the attack on Iraq as required by the Yinnon Plan for greater Israel. He taught as did Hegal that government is God walking on earth. This desire is brought to pass by the implementation of the thesis -antithesis which involves a problem, a reaction and a predetermined resolution.

    Regardless of previous associations with outlaws, today the masks are a conditioning device for simps that are too apathetic to examine this scam for themselves but rather choose to take the word of the criminals at the CDC drug co. The idiots sucking through the masks and their children and grandchildren will be paying for the 6 trillion dollar theft for the Global Bankers and their Wall Street buddies in depreciated currency and reduced economic opportunities for a long time. That his what the fake virus was launched to cover.

    Patrick Henry stated: I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging the future but by the past. The Zionist criminal conspiracy has left a lot of history for study. The future is not hard to discern after looking at the past. The goal is not far away. Unless we alter course we will all be herded into the totalitarian NWO.

    By the way, if the leaders of BLM are as they claim, trained Marxists, aren’t the practicing cultural appropriation? Marx was white, and their trainers no doubt were either white or Asian. That just proves that BLM leaders are insincere, and they must know that they are ignorant because they have no examples of black thought to rely on or learn from in order to institute black ideology (or for dumb BLM blacks, instead of using the word ideology, revert to your everything word, shit) on the world.

    However, when you start talking about a worldwide conspiracy of Evangelicals and Jews pushing their Israel agenda in the UN I lose interest. If you had continued and claimed that the goal wasn’t just keeping a secure land for Jews, but to diminish white people (as too many on Unz claim), then I’d presume you’re a wingnut.

    I didn’t say anything about Evangelicals. I said they were Zionists. This is a group of conspirators and operatives that center around the political arm of Judaism ( Moses Hess) known as Zionism. There are others involved but they are the leading faction and the instigators of the conspiracy officially begun at the First Zionist Congress in 1897 but actually at work since at least the French Revolution and again in the European revolts of 1848. Their platform is summed up by Karl Marx (Moses Mordecai Levy) as the Communist Manifesto.

    You mentioned Evangelicals. They have been a very important factor for the Zionists on the right wing side because of the political paradigm since they were bamboozled by the Jew agent Cyrus Scofield in the late 1800’s with his Scofield Notes. He was a member of Harold Untermeyers Lotus Club. These Zionist Christians have poured millions into the Greater Israel Racket.

    The Kazar Jews have no connection to the Biblical Jews. They invaded, occupied and murdered many thousands of Palestinians and drove out over a million native inhabitants. They are illegal occupiers and deserve no protection. This land was seized by these thugs for 2 reasons. Fist it is a very strategic bridgehead to achieve their goals. Second by having the British capture Palestine for them the Kazar criminals are able to promote the religious side of their fraud just as they do every day with the Holohaux that all our shabbos goy puppet actors pay homage to. Most of them even suplicate themselves at the Wailing Wall.

    As to your comment about diminishing white people. What do you think is the reason for the massive flood of immigrants under the current Kelergi Plan that was instigated and financed by the Jewish Warburgs? Or the 1965 Immigration Act here pushed through by Jacob Javits and other Jews? If you study the programs used by the Communists (Jews) you will see that the destruction of all aspects of western civilization is the top priority. This was what their Frankfurt School was sent up to accomplish. If the criminal Zionist syndicate can demoralize and destabilize the white nations of the west then all the other nations will fall into their hands.

    The information age has certainly reduced people’s attention span to the point that the media play us like kazoos.

    As for being Grammar police, the purpose of written language is to unlock the concepts we have in our minds in the minds of others, and the words we use are effectively keys to this unlocking. The wrong word, the wrong spelling is like a badly made key that you have to jiggle in the lock to unlock the idea.

    Saturday, I was wearing my Lone Stranger Mask coupled with my Slouch Hat and one of my many Confederate themed T-Shirts for an entire day of being out on the town. When I went to bed, I felt like I was still wearing the mask. It was definitely worth the minor irritation, which had subsided by the time I woke up. I got a lot of laughs. Surprisingly, many of the Ladies thought it was hysterical. One Soy Boy looked rather dejected when his girlfriend started pointing it out to their entourage and telling me how funny it was. The other girls were all laughing too. Interestingly, he was wearing a trendy skull face covering, but the girls weren’t wearing any masks. He seemed very distraught by the favorable attention that I was receiving.
