I’m trying to do an internet detox, so I’ll keep this short. Instead of getting verbose, I’ll let Colin Flaherty, who is White, and Anthony Brian Logan, who is Black (and whom I found through Oshay Duke Jackson), speak for me. See their videos above, where they talk about a group of Black people torturing and beating on a mentally handicapped White kid while shouting anti-White and anti-Trump rhetoric. They cut him and force him to drink toilet water. I don’t even know how I’m supposed to refer to these four monsters. Logan, who is Black, calls them “savages.” I don’t know if liberals consider that racist, but it seems pretty accurate to me. It was so savage that I couldn’t even watch the whole video. Where do people channel the cruelty to torture a defenseless mentally handicapped man? What kind of savagery encourages the filming and dissemination of such lack of human decency? It’s sickening and despicable. And until yesterday, the story was almost completely ignored by the mainstream media.
But it’s not the worst. Both Flaherty and Logan also refer to the Christian/Newsom murder ten years ago, which was also almost completely ignored by the mainstream media. I remember hearing that story but because I was a Leftist liberal back then, I mostly ignored it. The mainstream media, which is and was also liberal, also ignored it. I can’t afford to ignore it any longer. Neither can you. These two young people, at the very time when their lives should’ve taken off, were murdered, tortured, and raped for days. After having their fun with rape and murder, these violent criminals shot Newsom and suffocated Christian after pouring bleach down her throat. Their families have been destroyed and (it seems) now carry guns. I agree with both Flaherty and Logan that this was the most sickening crime that we’ve seen. Just try to imagine the anguish that these two young people faced in the days leading to their death.
Where was the mainstream media in all of this? Yeah, we know how the mainstream media has historically dealt with personal responsibility when it comes to certain protected minorities, but this is ridiculous. Early in the day yesterday, I had to go to the Chicago police Twitter to confirm that the story was real. It wasn’t until later in the day that CNN and other major news sites jumped on it.
I was having lunch with a friend a couple of days ago, and we were talking about the post-fact era of politics. The news media needs to get us out of the post-fact era. They can start doing that by telling the truth. They probably think they’re doing Protected Minorities a favor by refusing to report on crimes coming from those neighborhoods, but it’s exactly the opposite. Lying to people about their own communities doesn’t help them. Unequal treatment increases racism, not the other way around.
