That video (I won't watch) would be on a non-stop loop on the news if the perps were white.

BS. This is the second victim they've done this premeditated act to that we know of. (FB does retain posting history)

It's pretty long and terrible but I think the worst thing is the idiot girl who posted it doesn't seem to have a clue that putting that on Facebook is an incredibly dumb thing to do. I can't think of any way to fix that level of stupidity.

There's a short video involving the same 4 terrorizing a different young white guy. He's being threatened by a male black with a knife to spout whatever he's told to and to kiss the floor on command. He's obviously terrified and trying to get out alive by quickly obeying.

Captain Hate

Did any of Zuckerberg's brown shirts who regularly patrol the website to remove any "Islamophobia" remove the video or report it? If not I hope any impacted parties get a nice financial compensation from the dicknose providing a willing forum for this.

jimmyk

The MSM and Obama have genuinely fomented an "atmosphere of hate," despite (actually by means of) their allegations and innuendo about Trump, "alt-right," white Trump voters, etc., doing so.

Cecil Turner

There's a short video involving the same 4 terrorizing a different young white guy.

So that's the second time they streamed video of themselves committing a felony? Sooooper geenius. Plausible defense to hate crime: they were too stupid to generate criminal intent.

For dadddy and all the other red bloods here: Trish Reagan to replace Meagyn Kelly on FNC.

If you don't know her, she is cute as a button and smart as hell. Has a devilish side to her much like your hell-cat cousin you wished you could kiss.

Her bullshit meter has the highest settings I have ever seen and she does not suffer fools.

This will be a fun show.

The previous thread and Drudge contain info that says that Carlson is getting the Kelly slot.

Maybe Regan will get the earlier slot being vacated by Carlson.

The official WH visitor logs shows Al Sharpton has been there over 100 times in BOzo's 8 yrs. He has a nationally syndicated radio show "Keepin' It Real" that reaches most urban areas. He lets his guests and callers spew racist hate, while he offers understanding and "I feel your pain" support without appearing to be overtly egging on violence.

“There’s a great deal of fear in this country that the Voting Rights Act is going to be abolished, that the Affordable Care Act is going to be abolished, that Planned Parenthood is going to be cut off from funding, that Medicaid is going be cut off from funding,” said J. Mason Davis, a Birmingham lawyer who graduated from the college in 1956. “Don’t you understand why we have a fear of the man?”

From an article in the NY Times about a predominately black college (Talladega) in Alabama fussing over whether to participate in Trump's inaugural parade.

IOW's "we resist medically assisted genocide being taken away from our community".

Dave (inMA),

Didn't see that. Picked this up on someone's twitter feed who is usually reliable. Yeah, I can see Carlson stepping in but he has been getting hit hard for all his interruptions and cherry picking low hanging fruit to eviscerate. If Trish comes over before him it will only help his ratings:)

As a graphic an example of what irritates about the left. If you are worried about the Voting Rights Act, and you are black -- that makes sense, and you should find a way to fight. But what has Planned Parenthood defunding got to do with racial fears, or the repeal of the ACA?

matt, deplore me if you must

The kid in Chicago according to the NY Post was special needs as well. The people who did this need to be put away for a long time.

The the FBI never had their forensic techs access the DNC computers is laughable. Any case they could make against the Russians would have been thrown out because of sloppy cop work.

1) There's fear in this country.

2) Don't you understand why we have fear?

Great analysis, dude.

Jack is Back!

Porch,

He is a '56 graduate of the same college when it truly was one of what 3 or 4 colleges in Alabama he could attend as a black man and he is now fearful of a 60 year reunion with Jim Crow? What kind of law did he learn?

More importantly, what has he registered in his mind and eye for the last 60 years that is different from the years leading up to 1956?

Just an unbelievable statement from an educated person, white or black.

Both sides are tails.

Buckeye

OL

I posted a month ago about going to a 60th wedding anniversary for a couple who were long term friends of Mrs. Buckeye's parents.

The gent is an ex-Army Colonel who worked for the gas company after retiring from the service. During his subsequent retirement from the gas company, he worked at the local Sears hardware store part-time when in Ahia for the summer. I think he mostly liked having something to do, but getting out of the house might explain 60 years:)

I ask him why I hadn't seen him at Sears in the last few years and he told me that Sears franchised all/most of the hardware stores and he quit because our store went to hell in a hand basket.

Sears has been disintegrating for quite awhile, and I bet lots of landlords are going to get stiffed before it is finished.

The fact that there was a second video illustrates the complete hopeless rot in the school and in the homes/neighborhoods those feral beasts come from.

It means that the people around them (parents, siblings, friends, classmates) knew what they were up to, and thought it was just just dandy, because nobody put a stop to it after the first incident (which, guaranteed, wasn't actually the first one).

It's a whole community that teaches these feral beasts to BE feral beasts, encourages them, marinates them in hatred.

How can that possibly be fixed? How can people so far gone, so depraved and entirely lacking in anything even resembling civilized values, ever become decent members of society?

A B-52 bomber on a training flight near Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota [unexpectedly] lost one of eight Pratt Whitney TF33-P-3/103 turbofan engines mid-fligh.

The crew declared an in-flight emergency when the pilot discovered that an engine departed the aircraft and were able to land the aircraft safely without any injury to the five personnel on board.

An Air Force helicopter sent to recover the wreckage "located possible engine debris" in an unpopulated area about 25 nautical miles northeast of the base, Air Force officials added.

Porchlight

JiB,

It's a tautology. The left throws out anything they pretend *could* happen, without producing any evidence from Trump (except ACA, I'll give them that one), and then uses that as an excuse for generalized "fear."

This is Narrative Manufacturing 101.

The guy they quoted is not actually afraid, by the way.

Buckeye

"Great Society" my ass.

Porchlight

I'm sorry to see the decline of Sears. I bought Mr. Porch a vintage 1980 Sears Christmas Wish Book on ebay, which was the source of much nostalgia these past couple of weeks in both our families.

It was delightful seeing everything they had, beautifully displayed and photographed and arranged in the catalog. Imagine the work that went into creating and publishing it and delivering it to the doorstep of nearly every American household.

No clue. But I'm pretty sure our current President and his politicized race-baiting DoJ is part of the problem, not the solution.

Posted by: Man Tran | January 05, 2017 at 08:10 AM

Man Tran, my wife has her Ph.D. in theater and runs the program at Florida A&M -- so I've seen the award-winning play multiple times. Haven't seen the flick yet but surely will soon. I love the story; August Wilson had a good ear for Black American dialogue. He may be too wordy for some.

Most black actors hold August Wilson in the highest regard and Denzel is no different. My concern was (is) he and the screenwriter might not mitigate some of that wordiness for which the playwright is famous and it might not translate well to the big screen.

You seem impressed, though, so maybe it worked *or* maybe they did pare it back properly. If you have further questions or thoughts, I'm all ears.

Beasts of England

That story was in the paper here the other day. As Porch said, it's manufactured outrage. And they're doing it because it's all the left has remaining. It pisses me off to no end to see these antics, but I hope that a successful Trump administration will continue to peel away the layers of the lib onion.

I think so, Janet. The second white guy seemed very alert and responsive to commands the knife-brandishing miscreant issued, as if very aware his life was at stake.

More details of the Chicago torture saga ... doesn't sound like a hoax imo. Can't believe how skewed the reporting and the Chicago police reaction is since this is a black on white crime v. the reaction is it were white on black.

I didn't really care much for Carlson until he got his FNC show. His website is pretty much the "Hot Chicks & World Report" from Idiocracy. From what I've seen of his show so far, though... I like it. I don't think he interrupts anyone who doesn't deserve interrupting.

jimmyk

On a somewhat related note, a while back we'd discussed (with some disagreement) the famous Kitty Genovese story. I think there was someone here (NK, maybe?) who defended the original NYT narrative. Now a documentary is coming out:

http://observer.com/2017/01/the-kitty-genovese-story-was-the-prototype-for-fake-news/

Kind of figures the NYT would be at ground zero, if it wasn't CBS.

Captain Hate

If you're going to have a "hate crime" category and you don't use it for an attack on somebody LD, what is the point?

jimmyk

Hah, two coincidental NK references in 5 minutes. (I hadn't seen CH's post.)

Old Lurker

Buckeye "Sears has been disintegrating for quite awhile, and I bet lots of landlords are going to get stiffed before it is finished."

A whole lot of those stores are in shopping centers developed when it was common to rent to the anchors for extremely long leases at extremely low rents on the theory that they would pull in so much traffic that the developer could profit nicely from the other stores. Now that Sears is no longer getting any traffic at all, but their store still pays extremely low rent, most landlords would be very very grateful to have Sears leaves and give up the balance of their leases. Trouble is Sears knows that and those leases usually have substantial value because the rents are so low.

Will be fun to watch, but not many will be sorry to see them go.

"He had been reported missing Monday by his parents who said he disappeared after they dropped him off at a McDonald's in Streamwood on Saturday, according to police. The man apparently met someone he considered a friend, and then got involved with a group of people who stole a van from Streamwood. ... Streamwood police said the parents began getting text messages from someone "claiming to be holding him captive." As Streamwood officers investigated the texts, they "discovered Facebook video depicting (the man) being verbally and physically abused." [ChiTrib]

Sounds like the Chicago PD's involvement was picking up the bleeding victim wandering on the street where he was dumped, and then minimizing what happened.

Man Tran

RG,

It was wordy and flowed like a firehose, but it worked, because it was delivered perfectly. Most of it came through Denzel's mouth. You kept vascillating between marveling at his character and hissing at his actions. The Great Santini comes to mind.

Cecil Turner

Looks to me like aggravated kidnapping which, in Illinois, is a Class X felony. Per google:

For a Class X felony, the sentence of imprisonment shall be not less than six years and not more than 30 years.
And a federal hate crime is up to life if it includes kidnapping.

DebinNC

Streamwood, IL, pop. ~40,000. Hope they don't cede complete control of the torture investigation to the obviously incompetent CPD. The CPD spokesperson said the kidnapping was likely because the man was special needs and not because he was white. Anything on the video to indicate that? The CPD is providing a crystal-clear "What not to do or say" tutorial.

Imho - They have no desire to be 'decent members of society' . . .
That's why they support Black Lies Matter, anarchy, the withdrawal of police from 'communities of color'
(particularly the local BLM principals in Chicago) and
special protections from criminal prosecution due to their 'oppression' and need for racial and social equity.

Their protectors/enablers in the Dem party are fostering and encouraging these developments -

and all the while the MFM continues their propaganda campaign to paint Pres.-elect Trump and his voters as the people fomenting violence in America.

I expect that this won't end well, when it is finally brought to heel.
