Back in the late 70s / early 80s, pro sporting events were routinely interrupted by streakers. You couldn’t hardly catch an NFL game on Sunday without 15 minutes of some idiot running across the field. Morgana the Kissing Bandit was a regular feature at baseball games. Etc. All of which stopped in the mid-1990s, because the cameras quit showing them. Instead of following the idiot around the end zone for as long as it took security to get him corralled, the networks just cut to ads or gave Madden extra telestrator time. And now nobody rushes the field, because you don’t get on TV anymore — you just go to jail, probably after catching a beating from stadium security.
Which brings us to today’s nonexistent anti-Muslim backlash (bet you didn’t see that coming!) Like yesterday’s, and the day’s before, and every single other day since 9/11/2001, today’s anti-Muslim backlash features white people not committing hate crimes against Muslims, despite rather extreme provocations. And despite the Media’s double-dog-daring them at every opportunity.
Ace of Spades is trying to reclaim a shred of his respectability after turning his blog into the Internet’s #1 Trump-hate vanity site. So credit where credit’s due here:
If it’s dangerous for a strain of white identity politics to nurture a fear and hatred of “The Other” — different races — and that such a strain of grievance-mongering and paranoia may result in the murders or assaults of minorities, why is it (as the media and mediating institutions seem to believe) not dangerous at all for minority ethnic groups to gin up their own fear, paranoia, and hatred against whites or society in general?
Will the media or any government official ever address this, given the weekly assassinations of police, and the newest barbarism committed against OSU students due to one lunatic steeping in the hatreds of identity politics?
Or does the media simply believe that White Lives Don’t Matter, especially when compared against the Democrats’ keep to make Identity Politics Grievances and Hatreds Against Whites the central organizing principle of their party?
It’s pretty obvious that #WhiteLivesDon’tMatter to the Media. #BlackLivesDon’tMatter, either, and neither do #MuslimLives. They’d love nothing better than to find an actual “anti-Muslim backlash” after the latest episode of Sudden Onset Jihad Syndrome. Consider for a sec that Ohio State loon’s attempted justification for his crimes: he’s scared, he can’t practice his faith openly. Oh please. If that were true, every news outlet from ABC to Radio Kyrgyzstan would be camped out on the OSU campus. He’d get the Jackie Coakley treatment times a zillion. There’s only one faster way to be on every nightly news program, Twitter feed, and blog page in the land….
….and that’s to actually pull on a MAGA cap, festoon an assault rifle with NRA bumper stickers, get a Gadsden Flag tattoo, be White, and open fire. That’s instant immortality. The redneck who did that would be a household name until the sun’s a cinder.
Eventually one of them is going to figure that out, and when that happens, all hell breaks loose. There’s no way the Media doesn’t know this, which means they want it to happen. Yes, these idiots really do think that a hot civil war would be great for ratings, and that they can cover it in complete safety.
It’s not going to end well.
