Free Markets, Free People

And here we go …

After a senseless tragedy that anyone can see was racially motivated and has pretty much received universal condemnation for both the crime and the motivation, you merely have to wait a mere matter of hours before the first of the exploiters attempts to politicize it.

And, of course, there are a plethora of them, I just happened to pick some creature named Chauncey Devega writing in, unsurprisingly, “Salon.”  It is entitled “Charleston church massacre: The violence white America must answer for”, because this tragedy is something for which all us white devils must answer. In fact, Chauncey has a list of questions to answer:

They include:

1. What is radicalizing white men to commit such acts of domestic terrorism and mass shootings? Are Fox News and the right-wing media encouraging violence?

2. Is something wrong with the white family? Why are their sons and men so violent?

3. What should law enforcement and white politicians do about white crime?

4. Is the Charleston mass shooting just one more sign that America needs sensible and reasonable gun control policies?

5. Where are the white fathers in the white home?

6. When will white leadership step up and stop white right-wing domestic terrorism?

7. Is White American culture pathological? Why is White America so violent?

8. Are there appropriate role models for white men and boys? Could better role models and mentoring help to prevent white men and boys from committing mass shootings and being seduced by right-wing domestic terrorism?

Now if you’ve ever wondered what “tarring with a broad brush” means, here it is. It couldn’t possibly be because the POS that did this shooting is an outlier. No, of course not – its about all those white devils out there all wanting to kill black folks.  Don’t you know, there’s “something wrong with the white family”. It’s because their “sons and men are so violent”.

No mention, of course, of the biggest blight on the black community in terms of murder – black on black crime. I’m sure in some way, Chauncey blames that on whitey too.

You have to really chuckle at the “where are white fathers in the white home”.  The question of fathers is continually brought up and dismissed when talking about black on black crime.

And, along with the TNR piece yesterday, Chauncey wants to blame “white American culture” for all ills and broad-brush it as “so violent”.

An amazingly silly list designed to inflame and blame with this following:

Once and again, white privilege is the power to be the ultimate individual where one’s actions and behavior rarely if ever reflects on the collective character of white people en masse. By comparison, Black and brown Americans, Muslims, Arabs and the Other more generally are routinely subjected to group punishment and demonization.

I can say for one that this disgusting excuse for a human being that killed those innocent victims in the Charleston church does not at all reflect on my character nor the character of most whites I know.  But then, neither does Chauncey Devega represent most blacks I know either.  They, like me, want to stop violence like this from happening to anyone for any reason.  They know hate lives in some – on both sides of the color line.  But they’re also bright enough to know that condemning whole races for the acts of an aberrant few is both futile and inflammatory.  And “inflammatory” is not a way to begin any discussion or actions aimed at solutions.

But hey, when demonizing and politicizing, broad statements of collective guilt are to be expected from those more interested in condemnation and blame than solutions.

Chauncey just provides the grist to prove the point.  Of course Chauncey wasn’t the first to politicize it though:

In a press briefing early Thursday afternoon, Obama said the massacre should spark national introspection about the availability of guns. That it took place in a black church also “raises questions about a dark part of history, he said.

“I’ve had to make statements like this too many times,” Obama said. “Communities like this have had to endure tragedies like this too many times. Once again, innocent people were killed because someone who wanted to inflict harm had no trouble getting their hands on a gun.

Way to be a leader sir, and pull the people of the nation together in the wake of this tragic event.

2016 can’t get here soon enough.

  • This one just made me sick this morning – sucked the life right out of the day.
    There’s no sensible explanation for this kind of thing except sickness and evil.

    And Chauncey ain’t helpin.

  • innocent people were killed because someone who wanted to inflict harm had no trouble getting their hands on a gun.

    Erm, if someone wants to inflict harm, they will one way or another. Even in countries with strict gun laws it is comparatively easy to get hold of a gun. Or make a bomb. Or turn a vehicle into a weapon. Or stab children at school. Etc etc. Looking at the method of the harm is pointless.

    • 69 shot, 8 killed by bomb – Norway 2011
      8 dead – school stabbing -Japan 2001
      3 with a truck, 4 with a knife – Japan 2008
      5 dead stabbing attack – Japan 2015
      33 dead – stabbing – China (multiple assailants) – 2012
      Machete rioters kill 200 in Nigeria – 2010
      36 dead – hacked with axes, machetes, burned alive – Congo – 2014

      Evil doesn’t know any boundaries, ask the dead in Syria and Iraq how well stones kill.

    • Looking at the method is NOT pointless IF your point is to disarm people and make them more tractable.

      The best response is that nine people would not be dead if one person in that group had been armed and trained. It has so often been proven true. Think of Garland, Texas.

  • Chaumpcey was being cute, McQ. He was throwing valid questions concerning black ghetto culture back in the faces of people who pose them. Ha-ha, he said to smirks from his dickless Salon buds.

    That’s how they roll.

  • A) hardly something to get “cute” about. B) might have believed it except for the follow on paragraph.

    • Yep, item 4 has nothing to do with race.

      • And it’s the only one that isn’t a mirror image of the questions to which I alluded.

        No, it isn’t funny to McQ or me. It wasn’t written for us, but for the pukes who read and write Salon.

        To THEM it was a yuck-fest. And deep. Really, really deeeeep.

        • I saw what he did, and on first blush after the a quick scan I saw he was turning it all around – except for item 4.
          That was when I came to the same conclusion you did.

          Old Chancey is too cute by half.

  • Its was typical that the media treated the story first like a piece of rancid meat at first. You could tell they were ready to flush the story down the memory hole if it didn’t support their narratives. Then they got their racism angle and it became not only safe but important to dwell on it.

    If it was an Islamist, they would have alluded to the guy having mental problems and I’m not sure you couldn’t find that here if you wanted to.

  • I don’t think the scum meant it but they’re actually excellent questions. Why don’t we answer them?

    1)Quite possibly playful pastimes like the Knock Out game. And a heaping pile of other black on white crime that gets pushed under the rug in the interest of maintaining The Narrative, that American blacks are perpetual victims and whites are all Slave Masters in their hearts.

    2)Something is wrong with the White family. And the Black family. Actually lets say The American Family. Rampant, Feelzgood Progressivism has become ” Trans-Rational” and tirelessly worked to undermine the American Nuclear Family for over 40 years. Additionally, in terms of violence, a secondary Front in the war on the American Family opened up on Boys. Boyhood must be repressed. And medicated. Combine with previous results on American Family, stir and you get what we have here today.

    3)Enforce the law. Uphold the Constitution. (That one was easy Chauncey!)

    4)Yes. It is a sign we need more sensible gun control: Less regulation. Since armed citizens could have defended themselves. And also, Trigger Control, Sight Alignment, Breathing and Stance.

    5)In order of likelihood: a) Too smart to settle down with the woman but not smart enough to use a condom.
    b) A “deadbeat” who lost his job in the Great Regression, can’t pay child support and has probably been denied Custody or any meaningful visitation.

    c)A combination of both (a) and (b)

    6) When Chauncey stops asking loaded questions. Say Chauncey, when did you stop beating your wife?

    7)It is pathological because of the unrelenting, and liberal ( In all senses of the word) application of Guilt
    And the concomitant psychological harm said Guilt induces. Violence is quite likely under the effect
    Of such cultural pressure.

    8) Yes. We are lucky to have a veritable plethora, a cornucopia, if you will of good healthy role models in the United States of America. Unfortunately, most, if not all have been deemed Badthink/Badfeelz un-PC and have been shipped off to The Warehouse with the Lost Ark of the Covenant. They have been substituted with milquetoast PC programming reinforcing High School flash mob sing-a-longs, physics and physiology defying Uber-Female heroines, and nagging harpy housewives in commercials and sitcoms, who Always Know Best. Because as every Brown Shirt Social Justice Warrior knows, Dads Are Dumb. Just watch an hour of TV.

    Thanks Chauncey for the insightful questions!
