“All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to remain silent and do nothing,” is the famous axiom attributed to Edmund Burke in the transforming Age of the French Revolution in the 18th century.
It is being proved true once again in the transforming Progressive Liberal Age of Obama in 21st century America as so many Americans, from Barack Hussein Obama on down, and so many major American media, remain silent, make excuses for, and do nothing, about the evil of racism—Black racism, manifesting itself in violent physical assaults on Whites and other non-Blacks all across the country.
Practically alone, award winning investigative journalist Colin Flaherty has detailed hundreds of attacks by Black thugs on non-blacks in more than 70 cities in his courageous book, “White Girl Bleed A Lot: The Return Of Racial Violence To America,” now in its fifth edition.
About Flaherty’s reporting, famed scholar, columnist, and author Thomas Sowell wrote in National Review: “Reading Colin Flaherty’s book made painfully clear to me that the magnitude of this problem is even greater than I had discovered from my own research. He documents both the race riots and the media and political evasions in dozens of cities across America.”
“Colin Flaherty has done more reporting than any other journalist on what appears to be a nationwide trend of skyrocketing black-on-white crime, violence and abuse,” wrote the editors of WND.com, which has carried some of Flaherty’s exposés.
Flaherty has won more than fifty journalism awards for investigative reporting, including for his persistent and singular pursuit of truth which resulted in a black man, Kevin Wiley, falsely convicted for murdering his white girlfriend, being released from prison on evidence dug out by Flaherty proving Wiley’s innocence.
“It is abundantly clear that Kelvin Wiley would still be locked up were it not for the efforts of an investigative reporter acting on his own, Colin Flaherty,” former Congressman Lionel Van Deerlin said in lauding Flaherty in the San Diego Union-Tribune.
“He does not ever stray into racism—at all,” wrote the Houston Examiner. “He does not blame African-Americans, or anyone else, for this spate of black attacks on women, homosexuals, Asians and whites. He simply points out that it is occurring and that it upsets all Americans and weakens our faith in our media, who are brushing it under the rug.”
“Brushing it under the rug” is an understatement. Flaherty reports on “hundreds of cases of racial violence and mayhem in more than 70 cities over the last three years,” including mob attacks of blacks on non-whites to which the media turns a blind eye, makes excuses for inexcusable Black conduct, and strives mightily to report on outrageous violent Black racist attacks without revealing who the perpetrators are.
Most recently, the media has done almost nothing to accurately report on, and remained the silent about the race of the perpetrators, when physical attacks have been carried out with utter racist malice by Blacks in the so-called “Knockout Game.”
In the “Knockout Game” – so-called by Blacks and an obliging media following their lead — Black perpetrators are physically attacking, at random, innocent, non-Black victims, with the intent to knock them out with one punch — even though the victims don’t know they are in a fight.
It is a sneak attack, a cowardly “sucker punch,” a criminal assault by despicable Black racist cowards attacking innocent, unsuspecting victims not because of the “content of their character” but because of “the color of their skin.” That is racism. Black racism.
But, as Flaherty writes in his chapter on the “Knock-out Game: “Not discussing the race of the assailants is one of the most cherished rules of the ‘Knockout Game. Truth is the new ‘hate speech’.”
As a civil rights lawyer exclusively for some thirty years, and as veteran of both the military and what once was an honorable Civil Rights Movement fighting for a “color blind” society before being corrupted by race hustlers, please allow me to observe that the so-called “Knockout Game” is no “game”: It is and should be called, and dealt with, for what it is: Black racism.
The so-called “knock-out” game is a disgusting, cowardly manifestation of racism, pure and simple. It would be denounced as racism by the media, politicians, race-hustlers, and even Barack Hussein Obama, the “Post-Racial” (sic) First Black President and Eric Holder, the First Black Attorney General, if the perpetrators were White and the victims Black.
There is a simple truth : All racism is evil, no matter the color of the perpetrator, no matter the color of the victim. Period. Black Racism is no more acceptable than White Racism.
That is an indisputable truth. But where are Barack Hussein Obama and Eric Holder to denounce this manifest racism and to equally enforce the law? Where is the major media to denounce the perpetrators of this racist “game” and to denounce Obama and Holder for failing in their oaths of office and Constitutional duty to provide “equal protection of the law” to all Americans and not to rule by race?
Where are the self-promoting race hustlers and self-proclaimed “reverends” Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton? Where is the NAACP, CORE, the Urban League? Where is the ACLU, People For the American Way, Morris Dees and his Southern Poverty Law Center, which is so quick to brand non-Black people as “racists” should they disagree with Dees’ paternalistic Great-White-Father diktats? Where is Congressman John Lewis, Maxine Waters, and the Congressional Black Caucus? Where are the Black religious leaders? Where are the media-anointed so-called “Black Leaders” to denounce and repudiate these racist attacks?
Where, oh where, have all the self-proclaimed Progressive Liberals gone who rise up with such self-righteous anger to denounce violent physical assaults as “racist” if the perpetrator is White and the victim Black?
If Obama and Holder do not know the truth that all racism is evil no matter the color of the perpetrator, no matter the color of the victim; if they are unwilling or incapable of enforcing the law so as to assure all Americans of the equal protection of the law, as the Constitution requires, and as does the oath each took to defend the Constitution; then they have forfeited the right to govern under the Constitution, and should resign or be removed.
Shame on every American “playing” (sic) the racist “Knockout game (sic),” and shame on every American who remains silent and does nothing in the face of this racist evil because the perpetrators are Black, starting with Barack Obama, Eric Holder, and all the politicians, media, and Black and White “leaders” who dare not call Black racism by its name.
Shame on all Americans so transformed into moral and ethical cowardice that they tolerate and excuse these Black racist attacks on non-blacks for fear of being called “racists” themselves for speaking the truth.
Enough is more than enough. It must end.
