the three monkeys who see, hear and speak no evil, our authorities seem
intent on ignoring the true nature of yet another black-on-white racial
attack. In the New York City subway this past Sunday, 29-year-old Jason
Fordell was attacked by a group of black men who taunted him for being
white. Yet NYC police “are unsure” if the incident is a
problem started when Fordell transferred to a crowded 4 train at 42nd
street, where he encountered four black men who began harassing him.
The New York Daily News reports on what transpired next, writing:
started saying stupid little comments - cracker this, white boy this,
f----t this," Fordell said. "I told them the only reason they
were saying this is there was four of them and one of me."
…As the train continued into the Bronx, the confrontation became
physical, he said.
"I was in a headlock, punched and kicked on the floor," Fordell
Then a passenger decided to join in - declaring, "Oh, I get a few
shots, too," before kicking and punching Fordell in the head, according
…"Everyone on the train was egging them on," said Fordell
suffered numerous injuries, which included head-bleeding, a badly swollen
eye and internal injuries, as evidenced by blood in his urine. The assailants
also stole a bag he was carrying that contained $2900-worth of handmade
leather accessories, which Fordell sells at an East Village nightclub.
the epithets hurled by Fordell’s attackers, this crime hasn’t
yet been transferred to the NYPD hate-crimes task force because, we’re
told, the authorities aren’t sure if it was motivated by bias.
According to a Daily News source, “They have to look at whether
that was the motivation before the robbery.”
Do the police need evidence that the four sat in a darkened room laughing
fiendishly while stating that they were going to attack a white guy
because they hate crackers? I always understood that the mere use of
racial language during an attack was enough to classify it as a hate
crime (or, at least, it seems to be when a white person is the accused).
this brings us to yet another reason why I oppose hate-crime legislation.
Not only is it an attempt at thought control, as it’s hard to
escape the conclusion that the extra punishment it mandates is for the
thoughts expressed through the commission of the crime, but it will
never be applied equally. The government just has too much room to fudge
when it’s assigned the role of mind-reader. And in a politically
correct time, it’s not hard to figure out what form that fudging
will take. Hate-crime laws are not designed to punish hate, but, rather,
the thoughts, actions and groups the Left hates.
I believe, they pave the way for hate-speech laws. After all,
if people can be punished for saying the “wrong things”
within the context of the commission of a crime, how long will it be
before they’re punished for saying the “wrong things”
beyond that context?
for the police’s willful blindness, it should surprise no one.
Being human, cops respond to powerful social pressure like anyone else.
Add to this the fear of being labeled bigots, career damage and rioting
that could result from actually enforcing the law with minority perpetrators,
and it’s easy to see why the thin blue line looks awfully yellow
when the matter is black-on-white crime.

this keeps up, soon we’ll be like Britain. In that once-proud
civilization, the police are so
afraid to tackle Muslim criminality that their efforts to cover
it up have reached comical proportions. And it will keep up unless we
experience a deep cultural renewal. This means pulling leftist ideology
up by the roots in academia, the media, the entertainment arena and
beyond. Mere political victory won’t change a thing.
