Some stories are so big, the establishment media has to report them, no matter how damaging they are to the liberal narrative. The total failure of ObamaCare is one example; the ongoing epidemic of racially targeted black mob violence is becoming another.
Until recently, the only reporter willing to touch the story has been WND’s Colin Flaherty. He documents the mayhem in his excellent book White Girl Bleed a Lot, in which he writes:
In hundreds of episodes across the country since 2010, groups of black people are roaming the streets of America, intimidating, stalking, vandalizing, stealing, shooting, stabbing, raping, and killing.
Flaherty’s book includes QR codes throughout, linking to YouTube videos of the bloodshed. Otherwise, few readers would believe him. After all, if this were really happening, it would be in the news constantly, right?
Wrong — because nothing could be more diametrically at odds with the liberal narrative of saintly blacks oppressed by demonic whites than mobs of blacks attacking defenseless whites (as well as other ethnic groups, particularly Asians) throughout the country out of sheer malice.
For the past few years only local media would touch the epidemic, even then downplaying the significance and the size of the mobs, and often censoring racial information without which the attacks would make no sense.
But the story is too big to contain, if the national media wants to retain any credibility whatsoever.
An early crack in the dam occurred in Norfolk, after Virginian-Pilot reporters Dave Forster and Marjon Rostami were beaten by a black mob numbering at least 100 when they stopped for a red light.
Typically, the police wanted nothing to do with it. Not even the victims’ own paper reported the incident until it was mentioned in an editorial two weeks later. Bloggers ran with it. By some miracle, Bill O’Reilly picked it up.
The story was botched by leaving the impression that this highly typical event was an isolated incident, but at least the national media blockade had been breached.
The New York Post has taken the next step by acknowledging the pattern. From a report Tuesday on the Knockout Game:
The way the game is played, one of a number of young blacks decides to show that he can knock down some stranger on the streets, preferably with one punch, as they pass by. Often, some other member of the group records the event so that a video of that “achievement” is put on the Internet to be celebrated.
This is why video evidence is so easy to come by on YouTube.
Back at Fox News, Greta Van Susteren also acknowledged the existence of the Knockout Game (a.k.a. Polar Bear Hunting), but then reverted to playing the fool, going so far as to ask Al Sharpton to help stop the racial violence. This is the equivalent of asking an arsonist to put out a fire. Sharpton made his name by deliberately instigating racial violence, which directly resulted in murder at Crown Heights and Freddy’s Fashion Mart.
Speaking of instigators of racial violence, the political exploitation of the Trayvon Martin shooting by the media and the Obama Administration threw black mob violence into overdrive, providing a ready pretext: “justice for Trayvon.”
The details of the Martin’s death are beginning to fade, yet the storm of racial violence rages on, from one end of the country to the other. Just as not even the most obsequious members of Obama’s Pretorian media can avoid the debacle of ObamaCare, this phenomenon won’t go virtually unreported for long.
