Enter the Real Racists, Masks Off

The news from Oklahoma isn’t good. Three teenage thugs allegedly murder an Australian baseball player.

But that is NOT what our Right Wing blogging klansmen see (highlighted in pink): (And, please note that I’ll be proving that “klansmen” is not a slur, but an accurate usage below).

The one that really jumps out, of course is:  “Greg Pollowitz / National Review:   Three Black Teens Kill White College Student; Racial Grievance Industry Silent.

Here’s the madness BEYOND the blatantly racist headline:

Via News.Com.Au:

THE images of three youths police say murdered Melbourne baseballer Christopher Lane have emerged.

The Oklahoma teens who face first-degree murder charges have been named as Chancey Luna, James Edwards and Michael Jones.

But their parents yesterday protested their innocence.

Jennifer Luna, whose son is suspected of firing the fatal shot, claimed her son was at home saying: “My son is not that way. My son is a good kid.”

Earlier today, former deputy prime minister Tim Fischer has urged Australian tourists to boycott the US in the wake of the shooting murder of the Melbourne baseball star.

Mr Fischer said he was deeply angered by the latest tragedy and said turning our backs on America would help send a stern message about the need for tighter gun control.

Christopher Lane, 22, was randomly gunned down while jogging through the town of Duncan in Oklahoma on Friday afternoon local time. . .

So, other than the headline there’s NO racial content in the article they excerpt? The ONLY blatantly racist material lies in the EIGHTEEN words the National Review contributed to the Australian report?

Yup.

confederate-flag-klansman-noose

Did they miss anything in the Australian article?

Yup.

Try this:

Chief Ford said yesterday the attack was not racially motivated.

“It was just three clowns who got together and decided to kill,” he said.

Chief Ford said the police had released the body but was unsure of plans to repatriate Lane’s body back to Melbourne.

Gee. The Australians didn’t use this as an excuse to bash ALL Blacks. Wonder what the National Review‘s problem is? I wonder if there was anything ELSE excluded from the NR excerpt.

‘Renew our subscription to the National Review!’

Yup.

Yesterday, former deputy prime minister Tim Fischer has urged Australian tourists to boycott the US in the wake of the shooting murder of the Melbourne baseball star.

Mr Fischer said he was deeply angered by the latest tragedy and said turning our backs on America would help send a stern message about the need for tighter gun control.

Mr Fischer, who led Australia’s gun control reforms alongside former prime minister John Howard in 1996, said choosing not to travel to the US would help build pressure on the US Congress to finally act.

“Tourists thinking of going to the USA should think twice,” Mr Fischer said.

“This is the bitter harvest and legacy of the policies of the NRA that even blocked background checks for people buying guns at gunshows.

“People should take this into account before going to the United States.

“I am deeply angry about this because of the callous attitude of the three teenagers (but) it’s a sign of the proliferation of guns on the ground in the USA.

“There is a gun for almost every American.”

Meanwhile, Lane’s American girlfriend today revealed her heartbreak at losing her “best friend”, and parents of the accused protested their innocence.

What? They actually give the parents of the accused a VOICE? Don’t they know the parents are BLACK? And they make a salient point about Australia’s view of America’s gun madness that the National Review doesn’t like, so, to twist this into a racial slur, THAT had to go, too.

1925 Klan document

Gee.

Let me stop a moment and ask you: if three white men did something bad, would that AUTOMATICALLY paint the entire white “race” with the brush? If three white Oklahomans had done the same thing to an Australian would the National Review bowlderize the report and scream the headline:

  • Three White Teens Kill Black College Student; White Supremacist Grievance Industry Silent

I don’t think so.

Klan in Ashland 1920s

Klan in Ashland, Oregon, 1924

This is blatant racism, so intense that it has to DISTORT the article that most of the copy is stolen from  (without permission, naturally) and ignore most of its major points.

You see, the problem in the case of a sketchy news story is that it acts as a Rorschach Ink Blot Test on the reporter. Often, as in these cases, as the ink blots are interpreted, ‘facts’ come out that only exist in the fever dream of the reporter, without reference to the sketchy story. This isn’t about three teens in Oklahoma whom the haters know nothing about. No, this is about Trayvon Martin, whom the haters STILL know nothing about.

ghost-kkk

And with white privilege and anger at “uppityness” they spew their bile into this story. Let’s see what they say, shall we?

Golly. Anything else?

It comes amid claims Lane was the victim of a gang-related drive-by shooting gone wrong.

Outside the court a woman told reporters the three accused teens had a falling out with a fellow gang member.

She told Channel Nine the teens were angry when they set out and wanted her brother dead.

“I guess he has hung out with gang-affiliated people. I don’t know if he’s really claimed it or tried to be like them so that might be a reason why they’re after him,” she said.

However Chief Ford yesterday said the accused “just wanted to kill someone”.

Chief Ford said the three teens had no motive other than to ”make a name for themselves” and were on their way to another house to murder a second, unrelated victim when they were arrested. (from Australian news story)

Interesting that there actually IS another side of the story, but that the WHITE Oklahoma police chief dismisses it with they “just wanted to kill someone,” which ITSELF contains hints of that well-known and quite well-established Oklahoma racism. They aren’t human beings. They just liked to kill. For no reason.

But, oddly enough, I don’t see any Black racism here. No suggestion that murder is justified or ameliorated by the race of the accused.

Except by the National Review and crony blogs.  Here’s the Australian headline, for compare and contrast:

australian headline

That’s funny. They don’t even mention the race of the accused.

I tend to go with that headline just below the main header:

  • Christopher Lane’s tragic death in the US defies logic

Because, very often, that’s exactly what murder turns out to be. But not to our little haters. Some more:

“Jammie” at “Jammie Wearing Fools” is actively enraged that the Australians blamed guns (and the NRA!), living up to his blog’s title [emphasis added] quoting the EXACT SAME AUSTRALIAN ARTICLE:

Three Teens Who Could Look Like Obama’s Son Murder Australian Man, NRA Gets Blamed
Posted by Jammie on Aug 20, 2013 at 11:59 am

Instead of placing the blame where it belongs, somehow the NRA gets attacked here.

On uppity Negroes with guns?

The images of three youths police say murdered Melbourne baseballer Christopher Lane have emerged.

The Oklahoma teens, who face first-degree murder charges, have been named as Chancey Luna, James Edwards and Michael Jones, News.com.au has reported.

But their parents yesterday protested their innocence.

Jennifer Luna, whose son is suspected of firing the fatal shot, claimed her son was at home saying: “My son is not that way. My son is a good kid.”

Earlier today, former deputy prime minister Tim Fischer has urged Australian tourists to boycott the US in the wake of the shooting murder of the Melbourne baseball star.

Piers Morgan is going to lap this up:

“This is the bitter harvest and legacy of the policies of the NRA that even blocked background checks for people buying guns at gunshows.

“People should take this into account before going to the United States.

“I am deeply angry about this because of the callous attitude of the three teenagers (but) it’s a sign of the proliferation of guns on the ground in the USA.

“There is a gun for almost every American.”

Naturally, they were good kids!

Two of the accused teens’ parents insist they were not involved in the killing.

“That’s my baby boy,” said the mother of the 16-year-old accused of firing the single bullet from a handgun into the back of Mr Lane.

She doesn’t believe her son was involved in the shooting, saying today he was not a member of a gang and definitely not the one who pulled the trigger.

The father of the 15-year-old accused of being in the car admitted his son had been in some previous “kid stuff” trouble with the law, but described him as a good boy who also was not part of a gang.

“I don’t think so,” the father replied when asked if his son could have been part of the murder.

If anyone deserves blame it should be them and their punk kids.

As we veer off into straight-up racism and mindless hate about people Jammie knows NOTHING about, save that they are Black.

Update: Some asshole from The Atlantic figured this would be a good time to take potshots at Oklahoma’s Republican senators while not even mentioning the names of the suspects or the racial aspect to the story. Of course!

I really like Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) on a number of fronts.  He’s hard core conservative but he’s got a brain and is not an ideologue.

That simply invites the reader to dismiss anything this tool has to say.

Alas, given Jammie’s vestigial writing skills and lack of verbiage, we do not know whether the Atlantic “asshole” or Senat0r Coburn is a “tool,” but perhaps the “fool” will update with more vitriol. The worst fallacy here is that, with magic eyes, he ALREADY knows who is innocent, who is guilty and what the REAL score is. Like any Klansman.

1928 KKK anti-Al Smith Flyer

Note the “who could look like Obama’s son” is a hilarious bit of race-baiting around the “N-word” (which is implicit throughout) which would crack up any KKK meeting. The racist angle is explicit now. There is no question about WHO Jammie is talking about, nor about WHAT aspect of their totality as human beings he considers of Prime Importance.

Yeah: skin color.

The vile and hateful racist “Zip” at “Weasel Zippers”  (add lazy, since he rarely writes anything but contents himself with graffiti like this, and calling Michelle Obama the “Mooch” while constantly pushing the “N-words is lazy mooches who am stealin’ money from us WHITE Amurrrricans):

Oklahoma: Three Black Teens Murder White Australian Baseball Player Because They Were “Bored”…

three OK teens accused

Cat got your tongue, Al? [h.v.s. note: link is to Biography dot com photo of Al Sharpton.]

Via Herald Sun:

THE images of three youths police say murdered Melbourne baseballer Christopher Lane have emerged.

The Oklahoma teens who face first-degree murder charges have been named as Chancey Luna, James Edwards and Michael Jones.

But their parents yesterday protested their innocence.

Jennifer Luna, whose son is suspected of firing the fatal shot, claimed her son was at home saying: “My son is not that way. My son is a good kid.”

Christopher Lane, 22, was randomly gunned down while jogging through the town of Duncan in Oklahoma on Friday afternoon local time. […]

It comes as Duncan Police Chief Danny Ford said he had secured the confession of the 17-year-old who summoned investigators to his jail cell and claimed he and the younger boys were bored “so they decided to kill somebody”.

The victim:

HT: Douglas

[note: I don’t know anything further about Douglas. Have to assume he’s a Grand Kleagle in his local Klan, at the very least.]

Ah,  brilliant, ZIP! The “evil” Black teens and the “innocent” white victim. I mean it’s an open and closed case, right? Good lookin’ white boy and evil Black gorillas, right?

kkk2

If you’re a racist like Zip, yeah.

(And again, Australia’s rage at the incredible number of guns on America’s streets is neatly excised in favor of the Racist Narrative of Zip.]

I don’t throw around the term “racist” with impunity. In fact, I try to avoid it. “Bigotry” yes, when warranted, but “racist”? Generally not.

ghost-kkk

Except in cases where clearly justified, and it’s clearly justified here, satanic sophistries aside. Murder in Oklahoma turns into a gleeful auto da fé on the part of our Rightie bloggers. Here’s the last one from Dave Blount at Moonbattery quoting the SAME Australian news article:

Australian Baseball Player Murdered to Alleviate Boredom
Dave Blount
Moonbattery

The epidemic of senseless black on white violence continues, this time tragically claiming a visitor from Down Under:

An Australian baseball player out for a jog in an Oklahoma neighborhood was shot and killed by three “bored” teenagers who decided to kill someone for fun, police said.

Christopher Lane, who was visiting the town of Duncan, where his girlfriend and her family live, had passed a home where the boys were staying and that apparently led to him being gunned down at random, Police Chief Danny Ford said Monday. A 17-year-old in the group has given a detailed confession to police…

He said they followed the 22-year-old Lane, a student from Melbourne attending college on a baseball scholarship, in a car and shot him in the back before driving off.

Introducing the bored teenagers:

No word yet from Obama on which one would look the most like his son if he had one.

AH! THEY’RE NEEEEEEEEGROES! OBVIOUSLY GUILTY! And tying the “Black” president to the “Black” murderers is less “brilliant” than a dead giveaway to the alleged “thought” processes of this hater. Yeah: we see this stuff in FRINGE literature all the time, but this is the MAINSTREAM of the GOP blogosphere. National Review? Weasel Zippers? Moonbattery? Jammie Wearing Fools? As mainstream as the Rightie Blogs get.

Back in Australia, left-wing former deputy prime minister Tim Fischer is exploiting the incident to demagogue about gun control, as if Lane would be less dead if the feral scum that is taking over our streets had hurled a brick instead of pulling a trigger.

Christopher Lane, RIP.

On tips from Andrew in Australia, Wiggins, and Clingtomyguns.

Why just LOOK at that pretty, innocent WHITE boy! How could those uppity You-Know-Whos have senselessly murdered him? Where are Jim Hoft’s Magic Eyes™?

“if the feral scum that is taking over our streets had hurled a brick instead of pulling a trigger.”

… is an insane, dehumanizing formulation.

And racist to boot. “feral scum” is just code for “n****.” Period. (Which is MORE offensive, BTW? Hard to make a call on that viciousness.)

kkk2a

Sorry, Charlie, Starkist don’t want tunas with good taste. Starkist wants tunas in psychotic hallucination to write this racist claptrap and then look all pained and unjustly accused when called on it. And then Starkist wants to be called “The Republican Party,” and “Conservatives.”

No:

Ku. Klux. Klan.

Ah: angry about “demagogue”ing guns! But WE know what the problem is, don’t we Dave?

kkk-card_front

It’s those NEEEEG … Niggg … those N …. ‘blacks’ [sic].

“senseless black [sic] on white violence “

Yeah, senseless, because racists like Dave have NEVER done anything to those senseless ‘blacks.’ [sic] The very notion that some monolithic death wish against whites on the part of Blacks is the clear and ridiculous implication.

And that, kiddies, is straight up racism, else racism doesn’t exist.

Kkk-carpetbagger-cartoon

Really? Between defending guns and denigrating blacks, not one of these “Constitutionalist” fools has, for a moment, suggested that any presumption of innocence attends. Why?

Implicitly (if not EXPLICITLY) because the accused are Black.

Period.

Now, some may take offense to my suggestion that these Rightie bloggers are “klansmen,” and, to be perfectly precise, I doubt that any KKK chapter would accept them as members. But in spirit, they fit the bill, meet the requirements and are perfect candidates ideologically for membership.

KKK0

And, as they say, if the sheet fits, wear it.

Sadly, some who read this will mindlessly defend this blatant racism.

hate-image2

They will also pretend to know all the ins and outs of a case they know nothing of, the motivations of persons they do not know, and refuse to so much as entertain the possibility that making guns readily available to the alleged murderers was a contributing factor, even though Australia’s ACTUAL EXPERIENCE with gun laws shows that possibility to be all but a fact. (It WOULD be a fact after we enacted gun control and got hard data from the USA.)

The fact that the guns which DID cause the death of the player are meaningless and the color of those who wielded said guns is the ONLY salient fact tells any thinking person all they ought to know about the “coverage” of this tragedy in the blogosphere.

ghost-kkk

Who ya gonna call?

Courage.

UPDATE 8-21 @ 1:21 AM PDT: Evidently they crib from the same notes. Check out Scared Monkeys:

Three Teens, Two Black, One White, Murder White Australian Baseball Player in Oklahoma … They Were Bored “So They Decided to Kill Somebody”

Sick, just absolutely sick … where is Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson?

Three teens who could have been Barack Obama’s son* murder a white Australian baseball player Chris Lane in  Duncan, Oklahoma.Why did the three thugs do it … just for the fun of it because they were “bored”UNREAL.  15 year old James Edwards and 17 year old Chancey Luna were charged with first degree murder.  17 year old Michael Jones was charged as an accessory to the killing. The callous story of what occurred the day of the murder is simply inhuman….

* sic and when you think about it, if one was white, how could he have been “Barack Obama’s son”??

I think we may have a case of cut and paste. Which seems to happen every day. (Odd that the same people have the exact same thoughts about the exact same news day after day after day…)

  1. Farkas McDee says:

    Wow, do you get dizzy when you spin that much? You’re really offended because someone called these alleged murderers “feral scum”? You think he should have treated them with respect after they murdered a man, because they were bored and wanted to see someone die.

    By the way, Luna’s mother is white and Jones may be mixed race, but he could easily pass as white. So maybe you and others, are getting all racially agitated for no particular reason.

  2. Kris says:

    Hart Williams… you are a colossal idiot. I feel sorry for your life.

  3. John Snow says:

    Some people are progressive and liberal – I include myself in that group. Some just act as a counter balance to the idiots on Fox – I will include you in that group. If you want to present a fair argument, stick to the facts. Don’t spout a bunch on nonsensical BS. Don’t make this racial divide into a team sport, where right and wrong are no longer important.

    And out of curiosity, how does someone so incoherent get published?

  4. I have presented evidence. You have presented spersonal slurs.

    KKK? Meant to be provocative, or, rather, to illustrate with the imagery of hate the selfsame prose expression.

    As I said, if the sheet fits, wear it. The burden of proof is no longer on me to prove “racism,” but on you and on other GOP members (and “progressive and liberal”) to openly denounce it, instead of defending and winking at it.

    Which is is to be?

    Funny that you three are not offended in the least by the bloggers quoted. Pretty AWFUL selective sense of outrage, if you ask me.
