Colin Flaherty is too often misunderstood

I am a fan of the man’s channel. On break from watching it much lately, focusing attention on other matters. But his content is a showcase of what’s happening out in society. He’s not making this stuff up — he’s documenting it very publicly. For doing this, some folks accuse him of racist motives and dismiss his material presented. Swept away and ignored. Out of sight, out of mind. People say it about him so it must be true, right? Wrong.

First off, it doesn’t matter what his motives might be — his content stands on its own merits. He’s opted to turn his focus to black crimes news because a disproportionate and significant amount of crime in this country is currently being committed by black people. It’s a relevant topic. Very much so. This is impacting all of society. Stating facts isn’t racist. Can telling the verified truth be racist?

Colin Flaherty doesn’t offer up speculation on why there’s a higher crime rate within the American black community. In fact, he resists doing so even when asked by interviewers. Because to him that isn’t what’s most relevant. What is is that VIOLENT CRIMES ARE BEING COMMITTED AND IMPACTING ALL OF SOCIETY.

Many have been asking why for years. Politicians responded by orchestrating the funneling of evermore financial aid to poor (also disproportionately black) citizens and inner-city schools, as well as implementing anti-discrimination legislation and affirmative action programs in workplaces and universities. Measures have been taken, yet black crime remains on the rise. Why? Who knows?

Dr. Thomas Sowell answered that the very problem lies in these social welfare programs and altered racial standards. But who listens to him anyway? People claim to want answers but won’t accept any that are provided. Won’t even take time to consider the proffered answer if it doesn’t fit the narrative one wishes to believe. So then we bog down arguing over which cause(s) are most likely the culprit…and the problem worsens while we’re all sitting around bickering and accusing people of racism.

Meanwhile Colin Flaherty is offering up abundant evidence of what is actually going on, year after year and with no signs of relenting, regardless of what theories are being tossed around to explain it.

Can we deal with the facts as they are here on the ground? Is it now racist to point out reality?

The truth’s not always pleasant, but we still have to deal with it. This is the current situation. And if you pay attention to some of the people involved in the crimes he documents, they’ll give you clues as to why they do what they do. Some show clear signs of feeling entitled to do so and are themselves racist toward members of other races and indifferent toward the lives of members of their own. Or at least that’s how their words and actions come across to me. You can form your own judgments.

The videos and news stories shared by Colin Flaherty form a collection of data to support his assertion not only that black-on-everybody-else crime is persistent and increasing but also the quality of violence is remarkable. That’s worth taking serious note of. (Might provide a couple more clues as to why this keeps happening.)

Plenty of black people themselves state that there is severe dysfunction within the black community (despite often resulting in them being bombarded by their fellow blacks with accusations of being “race traitors,” “coons” and “uncle toms” — further proving how swiftly and surely hostility arises when anyone dares to make the black kids angry). And that spills out and affects everybody else in society, hence why it is our business and we’re curious to learn information about it. Colin’s channel is one that offers that. It’s not racist to want to be honestly informed.

This is where deflections like to enter the conversation, redirecting our attention back to select cases of white crime and claims of “white supremacy” and “racism” (a worn-out accusation if there ever was one). How does “white supremacy” make you a criminal in this day and age? Especially considering how much social and financial aid this tragically “racist” society doles out to black Americans and actively panders to their political causes. Yet that’s not enough — it’s even viewed by some vocal folks out here as not amounting to squat. There’s something wrong with all the rest of us apparently. We’re the culprits. We’re all to blame. Apparently because we deserve mistreatment. Is that not the message being sent?

Anyway, Colin doesn’t get too wrapped up in the ins and outs, preferring to keep his own message straight-forward in identifying the crimes taking place. That’s what he’s about. And I, for one, am glad that he’s willing to do so. It’s not too comfortable showing people what they do not wish to see or hear about. But it’s not his fault if others can’t handle the truth. There’s a problem here that must be addressed. People, including many black people as well, are dying as a result of all this lawless behavior, and that’s not fair or tolerable. Where’s the call for racial tolerance running the other way? Where’s the appreciation for non-black people’s lives and safety mattering too?

People get angry at Colin Flaherty because his channel content, especially when viewed in large volume over time, snaps at us to pay attention and to consider where this is all heading. (Will the crime rate continue to rise?) It also asks of us how police ought to respond. (Can cops do their jobs without being accused of racism and sparking street protests?) This is societal problem, so people other than black people can’t help but take notice and call for some sort of action. There are people out who don’t like that, but it’s not racist to believe our own eyes and to want to talk about it. Better to talk than respond with violence, especially where innocent people wind up concerned.

Which leads me to my last thought on this. Because of the recent events in Charlottesville and the decision of members of various factions of the Political Right to show up at a rally beside people sporting nazi insignia, ending with a woman being run over and killed by a car, we are forced to acknowledge where ramping up violence can lead us and have an imagination for how it might escalate going forward. Colin Flaherty isn’t advocating for that. But he too may well wind up tarred and feathered because some actual racists do watch his channel and put their $.02 in. Because he’s busy he doesn’t tend to monitor his comment section, and outright mean-spirited comments remain up. (Or he might choose not to censor his comment section, as is my policy on my own channel much of the time). But people notice that connection and assume Colin’s producing this material to appeal to those kind of people. He’s not. He’s showcasing it for all of us out here, not only the racists who look for anything to confirm their bias.

I’d liken it to how Donald Trump winds up being accused of being a racist bigot and supporter of the resurrected KKK and neo-nazis and whatever else because some of those people voted for him. That’s not all who voted for him, but of course they’re a group who attract a lot of attention thanks to the shitty things they spew about members of other races. There around, so that’s a fact we have to accept as well. Colin has repeated over and over again that his motive is not racism, that he was a journalist who could no longer ignore the disproportionate amount of crime being committed by black people in this country and how it’s not receiving adequate or honestly straight-forward coverage. That is a disparity begging to be called into question, as to be expected in an open and democratic society such as ours. Whether blatant racists and wanna-be nazis applaud his efforts is irrelevant — none of us can help who all takes interest in us. We can clearly state our own position, but others obviously aren’t under our control. And I doubt what those jackasses choose to entertain themselves with is of much concern to Colin. Those types also happen to like to watch and ridicule videos on WorldStarHipHop — is that the fault or responsibility of that site? I’d argue it’s not.

So, in closing, people do project too much onto Colin Flaherty. The man’s a retired journalist-turned-youtuber. This is what he does. He’s following a story of great interest, which is black crime on the rise both in sheer number of crimes being committed and the quality of the violence involved. That’s undeniably something people deserve to learn about, if for no other reason than to take precautions in order to protect ourselves. If you don’t like this reality, then work on changing it. But it certainly won’t be solved by simply demanding that people cease paying attention.

Nazism is politically left-wing?

Yes, there are different ways authoritarianism can play out. Not all forms are equally problematic. Certainly does become a problem when it’s tyrannical, which is the case with totalitarianism. Both fascism and communism are totalitarian forms of government.

When people say that nazism (national socialists) is actually far-left rather than far-right politically, I’d say 1.) it doesn’t really matter since the end results wind up nearly indistinguishable, and 2.) when it comes to the political spectrum if you far enough you’ll loop back around to totalitarianism.

Observe:

Call it what you will, but the results are still the same.

 

 

 

Democratic forms of government (quite literally) diametrically oppose totalitarian forms. So whether one starts out heading right or left, politically speaking, isn’t of real consequence here. Either way, they arrive together on the opposite end of the political spectrum.

“…you may be the next scapegoat.”

Food for thought on Jewish dominance over pop culture, Muslim immigration, and more on the Alt Right

Received some links and videos earlier that I’d like to save on here before they get away from me or I forget. Beginning with this message from a man named Joe Owens dressing down the Alt Right over what occurred in Charlottesville:

Largely agree with him that it wasn’t the way to go about getting their message out in a meaningful way, let alone to protect the Southern monument in question. Cutting out the riff-raff must occur. Most folks out here have absolutely no desire to associate with self-described nazis (national socialists) or their ilk. Or communists either, for that matter (outside of college campuses anyway). Bad public relations on that scene, no question. And it sure did get turned on Trump, which is just ridiculous but those legacy media clowns are looking for any opportunity to bitch about him. Tarring and feathering is all that happened this past weekend. Lucky that more people weren’t killed considering how many hooligans were present.

Anyway, that aside, a commenter on YT shared a couple opinion pieces about Jews dominating in Hollywood, the first written by Joel Stein in the Los Angeles Times (2008) titled: “Who Runs Hollywood? C’mon.” The second by Joshua Hammerman titled: “Do the Jews control Hollywood? No, but…” in The Times of Israel (2017). Hmmm…  I knew there was a major Jewish presence in Hollywood and over the media, but that’s more than I realized. Sure, they built themselves up into those positions based on what we the public have been willing to watch and pay for. But it also calls into question social responsibility when imbued with so much power. Especially considering Joshua Hammerman lists “humility, love and freedom and dignity” as Jewish values “through and through,” along with “an age-old preoccupation with social change, justice and engagement with this world.” Okay. And there’s the rub going the other way.

With great power and influence comes great responsibility.

Still, either way, Hollywood and mainstream media Jewry aren’t all Jews, obviously. Not that it needs to be said.

But then it was suggested that I conduct a search in Google for “Jews at the forefront of assisting refugees into Europe.” Did so and began reading. Here’s one by Amanda Borschel-Dan in The Times of Israel (2015) titled: “Europe’s Jews not sitting on packed bags ready to leave, says prof.” An excerpt:

Somewhat proudly, she described how European Jewry, remembering its own post-war refugee status, is on the forefront of welcoming the influx of largely Muslim migrants and refugees — “one of the greatest wagers of the coming decade.”

[…]

Visibly pleased, she told of a revival of pre-Holocaust Jewish thought from European Jewish roots that were previously abandoned in the effort to strengthen the new Jewish state.

But today, with disagreement with Israeli policies on the rise, European Jews are returning to their “Jewish ethnicity” and the philosophy of the progressive rabbis of the 1920s and 1930s. The rise of interest in Berlin-born Rabbi Regina Jonas, the first ordained Jewish woman, is an example of this new trend.

“What was considered dead and buried is coming back,” she said.

Hmmm. Okay, guess I don’t know much about what “progressive” rabbis in the 1920s-1930s were up to or why a return to that is desired. Gonna have to look into this more going forward out of curiosity since I admittedly am not sure what she’s talking about there.

Lastly, a video linked by another person showcasing Jews dealing with harassment by Muslim immigrants in Europe:

Gonna call it good for the night. Have an early morning.

“The tragedy at Charlottesville” and other videos by Vee

Learned of that guy’s channel in the past but hadn’t looked much into his content until last night.

Don’t know the dude but agree with him in these videos. This shit is cancer on both extremes.

Further pondering on protests and resistance

Currently finishing up watching this conversation concerning the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, VA:

After having filmed my own reaction to the event earlier this evening. I do get irritated with movements…

Sometimes I feel like a dog barking on the sidelines. Heh  But I live nowhere near where this stuff’s been happening, so online is where it’s at.

Taking in what I can on this event and continuing to ponder. Hate antifa getting away with starting shit and whoever’s calling the shots in ordering police restraint are indeed letting them get away with it. Saw it at the University of California protests too.

And, admittedly, the car crash is pretty odd. Some details surrounding that do sound kinda strange. Gonna have to wait to hear how that all shakes out.

Ditto on the helicopter crash.

I don’t mean to seem aggravated with everybody involved since I do understand that white folks have a right to stand up for themselves by peaceably assembling. Every other race of people have no problem doing so. The Political Left has gone nutty, big time, and appears largely unconstrained by this point. We know this goes higher. So what can be done about this?

Are we losing our right to peaceably assemble on top of free speech? Looks like it. I know responses are necessary, but it becomes a question of what might even prove effective at this juncture. MSM has been useless for years. Google’s decided to act up, which could threaten the internet as we know it (particularly Youtube) and obstruct the flow of information. This is where we’re at currently.

Then you mix people carrying nazi flags into the crowd and turn off potential allies further. Why? Some say they were either planted there or just were stupid tools without the sense to realize they weren’t helping. I’m willing to bet a few of the latter were there, and what can be done about that? Their presence does not help in the least. Sets everything back. Totalitarianism sucks, as do its promoters and sympathizers. People see that and want nothing more to do with any of you. So much for making progress in that respect.

How do you keep plants, instigators, and idiots out of a movement? Probably can’t. And because of them others don’t wish to join ranks. Disturbs folks with decent sensibilities. So then what? Keep tolerating your rallies being sabotaged?

Perhaps that’s the problem in a nutshell — maybe all can come out for a common cause but need to self-segregate, plus you need more than Right-wingers and nazi-sympathizers. There’s a whole bunch of us outside of the Left-Right paradigm who feel strongly about free speech issues but we’re not going to stand alongside people displaying swastikas. They can sport whatever they wish, but I don’t have to associate with it willingly. Not gonna either. Some of us have as big a problem with those types as we do antifa and  black supremacists. People need to come together to defend shared values, but damn. On one hand it feels petty to worry about protesting alongside some nazi-wannabe douche, but the reality is that most of us will refuse to do so. Just flat out. Argue all you want on the matter, remind us about their right to assemble also — yeah, sure, great…still. Changes nothing. People won’t go for it. Just saying. Makes one feel sick just in contemplating doing so. Because it’s not only about a long ago time in German history — it’s about the trajectory of collectivistic ideologies. Communism runs the same way. That trend is insidious and persistent.

No one in their right mind wants to defend or help totalitarians. Leave it to Leftists to make excuses for antifa, a bunch of commie provocateurs, because they apparently don’t have the sense to recognize that those jackasses aren’t truly liberal and are savages and will turn on them in due time. Antifa is paving the way to some Orwellian shit, bused in on rich people’s dimes to ruin people’s rallies, treated with kid’s gloves by the mainstream media outlets. I see it for what it is. And I wonder how one might get around it.

On one hand you have to appeal to the rest of society, because numbers do matter when it comes to physically standing your ground. But you can’t make that appeal while fascism-loving plants and idiots are hovering over your shoulders. On the other hand, the internet won’t save us. Most will probably watch rather than offer to lend a hand. I’m not even sure what we could do in person. Get beat by the cops, go to jail, and consequently lose our jobs? Get maced by commie shitheads, knowing if we do try to defend ourselves that we’ll likely wind up being the ones on trial? Only to have the whole thing spun against us by the legacy media?

OK. That’s one approach. Is there a smarter, more effective option than that? This is what I’m stewing on over here tonight. Seems to me people need to be united under something better than Left/Right politics and race identity groups. That right there appears to be creating the biggest obstacle for resistance.

More on Charlottesville chaos

Styxhexenhammer666’s take on it:

Exactly! I hate seeing those damn nazi flags, especially at American rallies. Southern heritage has absolutely nothing to do with Nazi bullshit and doesn’t deserve to be conflated with it. Sends the wrong message and tarnishes what protection of Southern monuments is supposed to be about. Ugh! Seriously not a fan of that tactic and will be SO GLAD when so-called Alt-Right supporters wake up and kick out those racist extremists who preach about being pro-Nazi and broadly anti-Semitic. THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH AMERICAN SOCIETY, nor should it. Makes a complete mess out of the whole situation when all are tossed in together, and it gives an incredibly bad impression to onlookers in the general public. Hence why I personally cannot align myself with a movement like the Alt Right on principle — being critical of culture clashes and race relations gone wild in the U.S. has fuck all to do with nazi propaganda, and it should remain that way! Makes me sick. We’re not Germany here, thank GOD. So why lump yourself in with those who support such bigotry? It’s nonsensical and only hurts your cause, providing additional fodder to those you claim to oppose. Bad tactic all the way around, plus it lowers what reasonable support you people might otherwise garner from your fellow Americans who don’t wish to affiliate with Hitler-worshiping bullshit.

Fly the American flag. Fly the rebel flag. But to hell with Nazi symbols. That is NOT a product of our culture nor in any way representative of Southern heritage and it has NO PLACE in our American protests. Fucking period. Shouldn’t have to say that. Quit making American conservatives look like fools in this way.

Agreed with Styx on disliking David Duke as well. Truly whatever that man endorses turns to shit. He’s an unabashed racist who winds up polarizing any movement he involves himself in. Not a fan. “He’s the white Al Sharpton.” Precisely. Just a complete charlatan. If he’s winds up on my side of the fence, then I have to pause and wonder where I’m fucking up, because I don’t want to be lumped in with asshats like him. And I say this as someone born in Mississippi who has appreciation for plenty of aspects of Southern culture and heritage. But the KKK? That’s an organization belonging among historical relics that doesn’t deserve to be resurrected. May better (higher) principles prevail in going forward.

Have we all gone fucking insane, Styx asks? Unfortunately it appears so.

Carrying on, Lionel Nation’s coverage of this ordeal:

I can see what he’s saying about such events being used to bolster government-backed agendas that we the people really don’t want and won’t benefit from, as in limiting what we can say by ushering in “hate speech” legislation and censoring more and more of the internet (gee thanks Google!).

This is a “controlled demolition,” a “controlled implosion” of a society…hate it but I know it’s true. Disaster Capitalism rolls on. And so many of our fellow Americans buy into it and believe what they see on the ground is real and organically produced. This is the deployment of a divide and conquer strategy orchestrated from on high, and the sooner we recognize that, the better. Lionel is right that this ball has been rolling for a long time now, and plenty of us began paying closer attention in the aftermath of 9/11. It’s still going and it will get worse. Because some big wigs desire it to be so in order to promote their own globalist agendas that have ABSOLUTELY NO CONCERN FOR THE WELL-BEING OF OUR NATION. Period. THEY DON’T GIVE A FUCK ABOUT US. Not one bit. Never have and never will. This is their power grab and their game, and we are just pawns to be used and abused as seen fit. Not to say that we don’t possess any power here, but more often than not people are playing right into their hands by letting petty grievances divide us. None of us will be better off on down the road as a result, no matter what they might promise your interest group. THEY ARE USING YOU. And they will continue to do so as long as you let them, angry black people and your white Leftist “allies,” Muslim and Hispanic immigrants, white nationalists and other “identitarians,” and all the rest who parrot their MSM-advertised talking points and who tolerate how the game is being rigged. It is not being rigged in your favor, no matter what you might wish to think at any given point in time. One “side” of the political divide isn’t winning or losing — down here on the ground it’s all a losing game.

This is a fascinating and terrifying time to be alive, folks.
