Fake Hate (Because It’s an Election Year)

Posted on | August 25, 2018 | 1 Comment

This is how you know a crucial election is coming up. If there’s not enough racism to energize black voters, Democrats will just invent some:

A story about a white man urinating on a 5-year-old black child and calling her a racial slur was fabricated, police said.
Grand Rapids police and prosecutors late Friday, Aug. 24 said they determined the story was not valid and said no charges would be issued against a 60-year-old man arrested following the initial report on Wednesday.
Police said several children, all 7 or younger, were playing together sometime before 6 p.m. Wednesday when one of the children urinated on the 5-year-old girl.
Kent County prosecutors said the parents of the children, in talking with them, ultimately determined the children “concocted the story to avoid trouble.”
“We appreciate the conscientiousness of the parents in bringing the matter to the attention of the police, and continuing to ask their children questions as new evidence was obtained,” prosecutors said.
Prosecutors said the 60–year-old man had a “verifiable alibi” from other people who vouched for his whereabouts.
The allegations, when first reported late Wednesday, caused concern across the community and NAACP leaders on Friday said the incident should be considered both a hate crime and sex assault.

(Hat-tip: Instapundit.) Remember that the #BlackLivesMatter movement began in the summer before the 2014 midterm elections, when Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) invented a fictitious narrative around the police shooting of Michael Brown. As it turned out, Brown was a robbery suspect and was shot by a police officer in a struggle over the officer’s gun. In the immediate aftermath of the shooting, however, CNN went into 24/7 coverage mode based on a false story that Brown was an innocent honor-roll student who had been shot by a racist cop (the “hands up, don’t shoot” myth, which became a protest slogan). Even though practically everything about the shooting of Brown was misrepresented by the liberal media, they nevertheless continued to report on the riots they had helped incite as if these were a spontaneous expression of “community” outrage, rather than the result of an election-year propaganda campaign funded by George Soros. The message of #BlackLivesMatter could be summarized in two words: Vote Democrat.

This partisan propaganda is about exploiting ignorance:

By depicting criminals like Michael Brown as innocent victims of racist police, activists sought to exploit widespread public ignorance about the reality of crime and law enforcement in America. Heather Mac Donald exposed this reality in her book The War on Cops, pointing out that a police officer is 18.5 times more likely to be killed by black man than the other way around (see “Putting Homicide in Perspective vs. the Media’s ‘Atrocity Narrative’ Propaganda,” Oct. 3, 2017). 

What are the facts about crime in America?

Of the 15,070 U.S. homicide victims in 2016, more than half — 7,881 (52.3%) — were black. As to the perpetrators, the FBI reports: “When the race of the offender was known, 53.5 percent were Black or African American, 43.9 percent were White, and 2.6 percent were of other races.” Black people are 12.7% of the U.S. population, and are over-represented in murder statistics — both as victims and perpetrators — by a factor of more than 4-to-1.

What makes it easy for the media to promote the myth that cops are “racist” is that, in the day-to-day business of apprehending criminals, the police must deal so often with black suspects, who are about 1/8 of the population, but commit more than half of all violent crimes. We must note that the vast majority of the victims of these crimes are also black, so that the allegedly “racist” cops are saving the lives of innocent black people by putting black criminals behind bars. Yet because Democrats are so invested in promoting a “blame whitey” mentality in the black community — in order to mobilize black voters at election time — the facts about crime are ignored, and counter-factual myths are promoted by the liberal media, with the result that anyone who tries to tell the truth about all this is demonized as a “racist.” Meanwhile, the most dangerous place for black Americans to live is in Democrat-controlled fiefdoms like Chicago, where more than 2,000 people have been shot so far this year, more than 300 of them fatally, and 80% of the victims are black.

It is a sad testimony to the effectiveness of the anti-white propaganda promoted by Democrats and their media allies that even children use this “blame whitey” myth as an excuse when they get in trouble.
