A gang of seven men — five black, two white — chanted “Black Lives Matter” before viciously attacking a group of white men Tuesday.
The white men were walking by when the Black Lives Matter-inspired gang approached while shouting the slogan. The gang then attacked the white men, hitting them with bottles, as well as their fists and feet, police said. One victim fell to the ground and was kicked in the head repeatedly until he lost consciousness.
“We need to turn the tables on them. Our kids are getting shot out here. Somebody needs to become a sacrifice on their side.”
This shocking assault is just the latest in what appears to be a spate of violent incidents of black-on-white crime that have occurred over the summer influenced by the Black Lives Matter movement.
On Aug. 5, Mary Thompson, a white woman, was fatally shot while driving. The shooter was a black man, Johnnie L. Sampson.
On Aug. 14, the New York Post reported that black gang members were purposely targeting white corrections officers. The FBI’s National Gang Intelligence Center issued a bulletin in early August that, according to a New York City correctional officers memo obtained by the Post, warned of “an increased risk for violence” against correctional officers during “Black August.”
On Aug. 15, a white cancer patient was beaten to death in Zion, Illinois, outside of a hospital clinic building in a random attack. The suspect is a black male, according to police.
Also on Aug. 15, Asian-American photographer Tim Pool released a YouTube video explaining that he would no longer be covering racial unrest in Milwaukee due to the fact that he looked white and that whites were being targeted by violent Black Lives Matter protesters. He witnessed one white man who had been shot in the neck.
Video footage also emerged from the Milwaukee race riots which appeared to show blacks literally hunting whites for sport.
On Aug. 17, an elderly white Korean war veteran was beaten and burned to death by an 18-year old black man in Alabama.
On Aug. 18, the body of McKenna Elizabeth Hilton was found murdered. A 16 year-old African-American, Savon Eugene Schmus, is in custody for the murder.
Also on Aug. 18, in Fitzgerald, Georgia, a 26-year-old white man named Michael Moore was shot to death by African-American 16-year-old Herbert Robinson. His wife told police that three people knocked on their door and that Moore was shot upon answering it.
On Aug. 21, a 26-year-old-white female pizza delivery driver was kidnapped at gunpoint by 32-year-old black man, Cornelius Ruise III. Thankfully, the woman, whose name has not been released, was able to escape.
It is difficult to ignore that these horrific acts of violence, which seem to be occurring with shockingly regular frequency, have arrived amid positively violent rhetoric from Black Lives Matter. Aside from the numerous well-documented cases of calls to murder police officers, there have been multiple cases of calls for violence against whites in general.
“Burning down sh*t ain’t going to help nothing,” said Sylville Smith’s sister during the Milwaukee riots. “Y’all burning down sh*t we need in our community. Take that sh*t to the suburbs. Burn that sh*t down. We need our weave.”
In August 2015, Breitbart reported that a black activist radio host inspired by BLM called directly for the murder of whites. “We need to turn the tables on them. Our kids are getting shot out here. Somebody needs to become a sacrifice on their side,” he said.
“They are out their killing black people, black lives don’t matter, that’s what those mother f***ers … so we got to make it matter to them,” he continued. “Find a mother f***er that is alone. Snap his ass, and then f***in hang him from a damn tree. Take a picture of it and then send it to the mother f***ers.”
Some of these incidents were clearly inspired by such incendiary rhetoric. Some of these incidents may have been inspired by Black Lives Matter rhetoric. All of these instances are more or less being ignored by the mainstream media.
A central myth in the leftist cannon, and one the mainstream media goes to great lengths to maintain, is that blacks in America are at constant risk of being victims of white, racially motivated violence. In order to maintain this myth, they must ignore the evidence that suggests the exact opposite is actually the case.
Thomas Sowell discussed this self-censorship in the media’s refusal to cover the “innumerable organized and unprovoked physical attacks on whites by young black gangs in shopping malls, on beaches, and in other public places all across the country today.”
“Some of these attacks make it into the media as isolated incidents,” Sowell noted. But “the nationwide pattern of organized black-on-white attacks by thugs remains invisible in the mainstream media, with the notable exception of Bill O’Reilly on the Fox News Channel,” he wrote.
“Even when these attacks are accompanied by shouts of anti-white rhetoric and exultant laughter at the carnage, the racial makeup of the attackers and their victims is usually ignored by the media, and public officials often deny that race has anything to do with what happened,” Sowell wrote. The book “White Girl Bleed A Lot” by Colin Flaherty details over 500 of these incidents that went unreported by the mainstream liberal press.
The title of Sowell’s article was “Early Skirmishes in a Race War” — it was written in 2013.
If the radical rhetoric of the Black Lives Matter movement may indeed be encouraging an escalation of such anti-white violence, the mainstream media’s silence on what may be an epidemic will surely embolden its instigators to continue.
