Another black mob attack on whites in Philadelphia

Now I don’t actually “know” that the attackers were black. For one thing, the story, from today’s Philadelphia Daily News (via Stuff Black People Don’t Like), contains no photos or videos. For another, it’s entirely possible that the group of about twenty racially non-specific “teens” that suddenly accosted a group of seven presumably white journalists including Emily Guendelsberger, an editor for The Onion, and Molly Eichel of The Philadelphia Daily News, and punched one of them in the face, and chased them down the street when they tried to escape, kicking them to the ground and then punching them when they were down, were not black, but white, Chinese, Indian, or Venusian. After all, violence is committed by all groups, is it not? But given that the gang’s behavior just happens to match exactly that of innumerable other black mobs in cities throughout the U.S., we can safely assume that the attackers were indeed black and that they committed a racially motivated attack on whites, and that the Philadelphia Daily News chose to cover up these important facts.

But look at the bright side. By assaulting white journalists, the black flash mobs may have finally gone too far. Maybe the Berlin Wall of media silence about black on white violence will start to be knocked down. It is not knocked down in this article, however.

Woman’s leg broken, others hurt in Spring Garden mob attack

A WOMAN’S leg was broken and several other people were injured Saturday night when a large group of teens accosted pedestrians in Spring Garden, police and witnesses said.

Philadelphia police responded to two reports of pedestrians being assaulted by a large group of young people along Broad Street about 9:30 p.m.

One of those reports came from Emily Guendelsberger, 27, city editor for local arts and entertainment content for the Onion, the satirical newspaper and website. She was walking with seven friends on Green Street near Broad when they were accosted, she said. Guendelsberger, who remained hospitalized with a broken leg yesterday, declined to comment further. [LA replies: I wonder why she declines to comment. Is it because if she spoke about the incident, she would have to mention that the group of feral “youths” that suddenly surrounded her and her friends, punched one of them in the face, chased them down the street, knocked them to the ground, breaking her leg in the process, and then kept punching them as they lay on the ground, were black? Did she go silent for the same reason that another female journalist, Lara Logan, went silent for three months after a Muslim mob assaulted her in Cairo—that the truth about the people who attacked her was, from a liberal point of view, too terrible to face?]

A friend who was with her at the time, Daily News staff writer Molly Eichel, said that they were walking down Green Street when a group of teens was walking down Broad. “We heard kids yell, ‘Run, run,’ ” Eichel said. “Some kid just came out of nowhere and punched my friend Charlie in the face.”

Eichel said that when her group tried to run, about 20 teens chased them down the street. “They were kicking kids down and punching them when they were down,” she said.

Two other friends sought treatment at area hospitals for facial injuries, Eichel said.

The only redeeming factor about the experience was that a few people realized the extent of Guendelsberger’s injuries and tried to protect her, Eichel said.

From the hospital yesterday, Guendelsberger gave her protectors shout-outs on Twitter. “On the positive, a bunch of girls from the mob protected me from the boys trying to hit me and take my purse while I was on the ground,” she wrote. “Also a car of women from out of town saw it going down, pulled over, and (I gather) circled around to protect me; wish I had gotten names.”

According to the police report of the incident, Guendelsberger was “jumped” by 30 to 40 men who punched and kicked her numerous times. Police said they checked the area for surveillance but had no luck.

Shortly before Guendelsberger’s assault, police said, they responded to another assault, about five blocks away at Broad Street and Fairmount Avenue, of a 20-year-old man who said that he was attacked by a large group of men and women.

Police said that he was treated for a bruise and abrasion under his right eye.

Twitter users said that the mob ranged from 50 to 100 people and that participants not only assaulted people but also threw trash cans and lit fireworks.

LA writes:

A mob consisted of up to 100 people, assaulting passersby, throwing trash cans, liting fireworks, and the paper continues to provide no description of these “people.”
