The Big Lie, in its efflorescence
(Note: see my summing up here
Steve Sailer quotes at length from several mainstream liberal media organs which all treat favorably the view that Omar Thornton was driven to mass murder his fellow employees by their white racism. Thus there has been no improvement in the MSM’s portrayal of race; the racial fiction that goverrns America is more virulent than ever.
Meanwhile, a reader sends this from the site Stuff Black People Don’t Like:
The final thought on the whole Omar Thornton situation can be condensed in this one, beauteous story: the owner of the company that allegedly harbored evil white employees bent on tolerating the continued “alleged” racial denigration of Thornton SUED his hometown to raise the educational standards of black students [from the Hartford Courant]:
Ross Hollander, the president of the beer distributorship where eight people were shot and killed Tuesday by a worker who’d just been fired, brought a lawsuit in 2006 to force his hometown of Bloomfield to improve schools for its predominantly black student population.
The family of the gunman in Tuesday’s rampage, Omar Thornton, has claimed Thornton suffered racial prejudice while working as a driver and warehouse worker at Hartford Distributors Inc. at 131 Chapel Road, Manchester. Thornton killed himself as police closed in.
Union officials have said Thornton brought no racism allegations to them and filed no complaints with any state or federal agencies. Police said they found no evidence to support claims by Thornton’s friends and family that racial slurs or graffiti scrawled in the bathrooms at the family-owned business.
Union officials have said that the Hollander family would not have tolerated any racist conduct.
The lawsuit, brought by Hollander, Lewis B. Rome and James Michel, came after Bloomfield’s town attorney ruled that a referendum vote authorizing the expenditure of $94 million to improve the town’s schools was invalid.
“The current student population in the Bloomfield public schools is 88 percent African-American, six percent white and six percent other minority,” the lawsuit states. “Given that African-American children in this country have historically been educated in substandard facilities, the May 23, 2006 referendum seeks to give children who traditionally have not had access to the same educational facilities as their suburban counterparts. Bloomfield has the opportunity to reverse this traditional disadvantage by enacting the referendum as passed, as it would provide for modern facilities now enjoyed by its suburban counterparts.”
Bloomfield schools, Hollander and the others argued, “lack the infrastructure necessary to allow students access to modern educational technology, damaging students’ chances of attaining those skills necessary to compete in a modern technological workplace.”
A U.S. District Court judge in Bridgeport ruled that the town attorney’s ruling was faulty and reinstated the referendum results.
“These buildings are not capable of preparing our kids for the 21st Century,” Hollander said after the court victory. “I hope the town fathers see this as an opportunity to step forward and do what they needed to do.”
Attempts have been made to state that racism pushed Mr. Thornton over the edge, which exonerates him from the culpability of the nine dead bodies, five of whom he told his mother on the phone were but “dead racists”.
We are entering the darkest days of Black Run America (BRA), when the media has shown its hand in the hierarchy of crimes: the worst offense one can be guilty of and which no amount of evidence to the contrary can be produced once the accusation has been made to dissuade the accuser and clear ones name is being a white racist. In the case of the nine dead in Connecticut—at the hands of a black individual—the media has proven this point, running with the story of a black dude being discriminated against as sufficient reason for engaging in wholesale slaughter.
In the world governed by BRA’s rules and edicts, it has now been shown that a mass-murderers heinous and monstrous actions will be excused by playing the “but I killed evil racists” card. The burden of proof now falls on the survivors to discredit such a claim, but no amount of soap can remove the residue left over from such an indictment of harboring racist views.
Those who can see just grew exponentially.
Oh, and to the point of purported black children having substandard educational opportunities: Black students do just as poorly in white schools (even when forced busing is mandated) and they do just as poorly when Black pupils receive outrageous allocation of resources in the money per pupil ratio.
And yes, they perform pathetically for Crusading White Pedagogues or over-eager Teach for America drones. The AP Test score breakdown among the differing racial groups illustrates this sordid tale all too well.

So, the story spread by the MSM is not only false, it’s the exact opposite of the truth. Ross Hollander, the owner of the company whose employees Thornton murdered for their “racism,” is the sort of liberal who believes that all black failure and black dysfunction are caused by white society. In his suit against a local school district, he even went so far as to assert that blacks do badly in school because of inferior educational facilities (!!!) when, of course, the truth is that the greatest efforts in history have been made in this country over the last 50 years to improve the education blacks receive, including, in some cities, the building of the fanciest high schools in the universe. (Further, none of these efforts have had any significent positive effect, notwithstanding the pious lie by Abigail and Stephan Thernstrom and their mainstream conservative followers about charter schools “closing the gap” between blacks and whites). That Ross Hollander doesn’t know these salient facts about modern America shows him to be the blindest type of liberal, the type of liberal who automatically and unthinkingly blames blacks’ problems on white-run society, no matter how much of their energy and wealth whites sacrifice for the sake of black improvement.

Meaning what? Meaning that it was a company run by the blindest type of pro-black liberal that got targeted by a black mass murderer of whites.
Over and over again, we see how the whites who are the most naive about blacks, the most well-meaning toward blacks, the most “out-reaching” toward blacks, are the ones who get targeted and killed by blacks.
Don’t believe me? Take a stroll through VFR’s grim collection, “Black and other nonwhite violence against whites.”
