Untethered on press reaction to Omar Thornton

Dennis Dale writes
The grotesque irony of pursuing a homicidal bigot’s complaints of racial harassment is only noticed by the irrelevant (my hand’s raised). ... For the media the event worked like a brain-teaser, where habitual thinking leads one to miss plain meaning. You know:
one of the coins is a nickel; the doctor is the boy’s mother; the hateful murderer is the bigot.

No “but of course” moment is forthcoming. Here the press is like the ideal subject for a hypnotist’s lounge act: easily brought under, highly suggestible, shameless in its stupor, oblivious in retrospect.

This defamation of the dead isn‘t without its black comedy: the murderer was wearied, we’re told (by a callow girlfriend as oblivious to shame as the reporters encouraging her, reveling in the attention and enthusiastically adopting, as it were, the role usually reserved for a tearful mother), by the racism that just so happened to find him at every job. The chronically incompetent and stupid typically blame luck or a spiteful world for their misfortunes, and in Omar’s mind racism followed him like a personal storm cloud, manifested, I presume, in charges of tardiness, ineptitude, theft. Perhaps it is me who’s being na├»ve. After all, what a boundless reservoir of racism white America is!

The media’s appetite would not be sated before we were assured of the gentle nature of this man and his love for family, lovers, and handguns. One newspaper featured a photo spread of the widow (of the killer, not one of the killed), complete with an image of the tattoo consecrating her upper thigh to their love. ...

Once the guilt of the dead is confirmed by the standard of federal “civil rights law”—wherein the burden of proof is on the accused (here they can be said to be doubly disadvantaged, compelled by law to prove the negative in a voice rendered silent by their accuser; damn this teacher is strict!) ...

That's where I was maybe back in the 1980s - liberals are well-intentioned, well-meaning, decent-but-misguided old fools.

But having watched them cover for Bubba during the scandals of the 1990s, and hearing about Chrissy Matthews' leg tingling, and now watching all of this JournoList nonsense [compare the latest from the Associated Press], I just ain't buying it no more.

These nihilists know exactly what they're doing.

[PS: If you haven't done so already, then you really do owe it to yourself to watch the Frankfurt School video.]

I suppose he'll end up taking a place next to Emmett Till in the pantheon of heros who fought injustice. Once a year the media will commemorate him for the stand he took against the evils of the world. We must be running low on heros these days, the quality just isn't there anymore.

Certainly a lot of them do, Anon, but the rank and file mostly don't know what's going on at all.

The Sailer Solution: If we wax sarcastic and crack enough jokes then these projecting hate-filled antagonists will surely cry in shame, apologize, and become our best friends forever.

Nowadays it's more likely his co-workers were falling all over themselves to make him My Black Buddy.

its funny how to turn things on their heads..

u see, Omar was fighting against racism

this itself is irrelevant and unimportant to you becuase white people cannot be racist, only black people can be.

no one in the press suggeested those racist white folks deserved to be killed

but Omar felt he had a noble reason.

you're saying it was all in his head, how do u know??

Yes but WHO is the main audience for news? Look at the ads on local news, the ads in the local newspaper, what's covered, what is not.

The answer is women. For a variety of reasons, this uber-PC and blame the dead White victims instead of the Black murderer at least does not produce revulsion among the largely female audience for news.

Its like Charlie Sheen and Mel Gibson (as actors I like them both, they're both insane and nutty people) versus say Michael Richards or Dr. Laura. Charlie Sheen can (allegedly) put a knife to his wife's throat and threaten to kill her on Christmas Day, nothing much happens. He gets a RAISE in his show, feminists don't complain. Use of the n-Word did not hurt Mel Gibson's career -- Whoopi Goldberg defends him. Meanwhile Dr. Laura and Michael Richards are persona non grata.

Its who you are (Gibson can be a paleocon, make his comments about Jews and not suffer), being the "Big Man" above all else. Because women forgive anything in a man as long as he's Alpha exciting.

"Use of the n-Word did not hurt Mel Gibson's career -- Whoopi Goldberg defends him."

Let's go through this one more time, Whiskey - one black leftist feminist who spoke up for Gibson does not make a meaningful trend. Gibson's career is almost certainly damaged beyond repair.

Whiskey again thumps for his alpha male theory. But again the evidence doesn't support him.

Women are not the focus of the news. Women tend to be less interested in politics than men and young people less so than old people.

Notice all the codger oriented ads on Fox News. They show ads for Viagra and testosterone supplements routinely. Or maybe Whiskey thinks they are aimed at women who just want more action in the bedroom?

It is true that women are often soft headed when men would be hard headed. We saw that this week with the Blagojevich jury. When I was on jury duty last I witnessed the same phenomenon, the women wanted to be merciful irrespective of the evidence. Is this a bad thing? Maybe, but we're mammals. We love our mothers and we expect female kindness.

This isn't politics, though. It's culture. Women eat these kinds of stories up, and this particular one will allow them to out-anti-racist their friends. "Yes, yes, it's terrible. But you know, if they really were racists it's all very understandable. I mean, how much do you expect the poor guy to take?"

Apparently to join all you need to go through the strenuous exercise of pointing out the freakin' obvious.

It is intriguing that Thorton didn't shoot any women.

In some ways, this is an echo of the media coverage of the Fort Hood massacred, except much worse.
MSM loves blacks more than Muslims.

MSM happens to be informed and animated by two 'progressive' racial narratives:

"CONFESSIONS OF NAT TURNER"
and
"UNFORGIVABLE BLACKNESS".

In the liberal reading of the Nat Turner story, the rebel slave had a right to commit violence and kill.
And white liberals believe Jack Johnson wasn't just a great boxer but had the moral and historical right to pummel 'racist' white boys to the ground and humiliate white male pride by taking white women.

Now, one can make a valid case that Nat Turner was indeed driven to madness by white oppression even if we don't condone what he did.
And one can make a case that Johnson, despite is childishness and obnoxiousness, fought and won all his fights fairly, and did teach a valuable lesson to the racially arrogant whites.

But Omar Thorton? He was just a thug and psycho. But, no matter. When a certain paradigm takes hold, it has a procrustean way of bending everything to its
(il)logic and narrative.
So, the media can't help but to see Thorton as a modern day Turner-Johnson, especially since he had a white girlfriend.

Of course, there are some in the media, especially Jews, who know the truth but, fearing that this story might spark white populist rage(something Jews fear most), keep mum for political or strategic reasons.
I think Jews think thus: when a Jew did wrong in the old world, gentiles got riled up and carried out pogroms against the entire Jewish community.
And liberals think thus: when a black committed a crime in the past, the whole black community would be targeted and attacked by angry mobs of whites.
So, there is an attempt to snuff anything that ignite white rage, though today's America is marked far more by Jewish abuse of power, black violence, and illegal alien troubles.

Of course, procrusteanism is alive on the right as well. Castefootball is a prime example. It is so committed to white supremacy that it cannot accept the fact that blacks are athletically superior. It will bend and distort every sports data to prove that whites are losing out all due to 'discrimination', oh boo hoo hoo.

And there are white nationalist types who will insist that even bigoted white thugs and murderers are 'martyrs' or 'victims' of ZOG.

It's a common mentality, but the leftist paradigm prevails over the right because liberals run the media and favor the leftist view over the rightist one.

Of course you're right about women's interests, I couldn't agree more. But I was responding specifically to Whiskey's assertion that the news was aimed at women. That simply isn't true.

Maybe 'thorton' should join the English lexicon as an attempt to whitewash black crime and violence.
So, in the news story above, the mother of the accused kid was thortoning the incident. You see, it was not the fault of her nice sweet kid, and of course no fault of hers as a parent. It must be the fault of a 'racist' society trying to railroad her innocent sweet child.

I think we can better understand the act of thortoning if we remember the practice of hortoning.
In 1988, Bush hortoned Dukakis with an ad about a black criminal named Willie Horton who raped a white woman and humiilated and assaulted the weaker white man who was unable to defend his woman.
It was an ad that played on racial fears that was real and valid enough, but liberals went crazy over it.
So, 'hortoning' is a no-no. Whites are not supposed to call attention to black crime and violence.

But 'thortoning' is in, where liberals, a good number of them Jewish, apologize for black crime and belittle and mock the tragedy and sorrow of dead white people.

Hail fellow Pteronodon Nationalists:

My perfidious female typist* EscapistArt@wordpress says that she has a clever libertarian/fiscal-conservative solution to Social Security and Medicare, but I’m like, no one wants to read that. They want to read about alpha dominant Game, HBD, elite media lies, NAMs, IQ, hypergamy, evopsych and other hip topics that will make Western civilization great again.

Yes. Racist mass-murder, and a nationwide campaign implicitly to excuse it, doesn't bother us, as it doesn't bother you. What bothers us is the center of the universe, also known as your dik.
