Black-on-white mayhem, black flash mobs throughout the U.S., while our “leaders” remain silent

These hyperlinked headlines are at the center top of the Drudge Report today:

Flash mob of 40 rips off Philly SEARS…

[“A mob of about 40 people stormed into the Sears department store on 69th Street Thursday, and in a flash stole thousands of dollars worth of merchandise, officials said.”]

Here again is the “Pandemonium in Peoria” story, from the Peoria Chronicle. From the Chronicle page it’s not clear who posted the Paul Wilkenson account, or where the Wilkenson account was originally posted.

Peorians living in fear

This eye-witness account is from Paul Wilkinson, president of the Altamont Park Neighborhood Association:

Tonight, around 11 p.m., a group of at least 60-70 African American youth marched down one of the side streets (W. Thrush) to the 4 lane main drag (Sheridan). They were yelling threats to white residents. Things such as we need to kill all the white people around here. They were physically intimidating anyone calling for help from the police. They were surrounding cars. Cars on the main drag had to slam on their brakes to either avoid the youth blocking not only all four lanes, but a large section of the side street as well. fights were breaking out among them. They were rushing residents who looked out their doors, going on to porches, yelling threats to people calling the police for help.

Cars were doing U turns on the streets just to avoid the mob, mostly male. One youth stated his grandfather was white and several assaulted him on the spot. [LA replies: That’s very odd. What does it mean? That the mob assaulted a black person after he declared that he had a white grandfather?] One police officer answered the call. The youth split into two large groups, one heading north, the other south. They were also yelling racial threats to the police officer but he was outnumbered. Another police car did not show up until after the youth finally dispersed and the patty wagon (van) also eventually showed up.

Residents are very shaken, both black and white alike. This is the fifth large mob action in about a month with smaller groups of 10-12 are out threatening children and adults a few evenings a week or later into the night. The times vary, even occuring during the day. In talking to the police officer, they are short staffed. Residents were advised to simply keep inside and to lock their doors. In other words buckle down, it’s not even safe to sit on your porch or go into your yards.

“The fifth large mob action in about a month.” Wow. This is really outrageous. Why is this neighborhood having to put up with this? “Residents were advised to simply keep inside and to lock their doors”? Seriously? That’s the best we can do for our fellow citizens’ safety?

This needs to be addressed, and quickly.

Great post. It looks like parts of Peoria have literally been under siege for the past month.

The last I read the United States had 300 million registered firearms. (That is what is known by the ATF. We don’t know how many illegal guns flow in from Mexico, China, and Eastern Europe. Probably not an insignificant amount.) When vigilantism comes, will the Left ever piece together the cause of that effect? I doubt it. I do suspect that when vigilantism ones, Eric Holder and the FBI will crack down on it with a Soviet-level of manpower.

It’s going to come to the point where we will need armed citizen militia’s protecting our neighborhoods. Whites I know are getting fed up. The old South’s system of segregation is looking better and better all the time. The downward spiral of our country started with the Civil Rights legislation in the 60s.

Here is a brief, relatively non-informative story from a Peoria newspaper about the mob shouting “We’re going to kill all white people.”

The main “news,” as stated in the article’s headline (“Account of racist Peoria mob spurs national attention”) is that the story appeared on the Drudge Report.

The article says that police were ordered not to comment on the incident.

LA replies:

Good catch. As the headline suggests, the fact that the Drudge Report linked the story about a mob of blacks walking through a white neighborhood in Peoria yelling “We need to kill all the white people around here” was more newsworthy in that Peoria newspaper’s eyes than the fact that a mob of blacks walked through a white neighborhood in Peoria yelling “We need to kill all the white people around here”

The implied subtext is: “We gotta keep these embarrassing stories from getting out to the larger world.”

LA writes:

I just want to say, Matt Drudge deserves applause for running these stories as he has done, and, most importantly, for running them together in a group of headlines, thus showing the pattern of black youth violence and mayhem across the country. By doing this, he breaks with the prevailing media tactic of treating each group assault and each flash mob attack by black youths as though it were an isolated and unique event bearing no relationship to any larger phenomenon. So Drudge gets VFR’s award for Anti-Nominalist Website of the Month.

And of course he did the same on Memorial Day weekend. Simply by posting a group of related mainstream news stories together, and without writing a single word of his own, he said more about black youth violence than the entire mainstream news industry in this country has ever done.

Nominalism is briefly defined here.

Luckily there has been a revival of realism in philosophy in recent decades. Unfortunately these things take decades to work their way through academia and then into their students who go on to work their way up into positions of power. Plus, nominalism and post-modernism is so entrenched in academia that it will take for the entire generation of academics who were brought up that way to die off before they can be replaced. The new realism is based around the idea of homeostasis. I can recommend the post, “Cultural Homeostasis and Multicultural Neikophilia” for a discussion.
