This past summer, we wanted to take the kids to the County Fair. Our 21-year-old son said, “Please don’t go, Mom. A bunch of people are talking about that Knockout Game. There’s gonna be attacks at the fair.” Frankly, I wasn’t surprised; I’ve known about this for a few years. On November 15th, I read an article on a Denver news site, KDVR, about the “Knockout ‘Game'”. I noticed that the article didn’t mention a primary fact about the “game”, that its players are black teens attacking white people. Within days, everyone was reporting on Knockout, also know as ‘Point ’em out, Knock ’em out’. Except now, most were mentioning race. For some time now I’ve been following the writings of Colin Flaherty on WMD.com. Colin is the author of White Girl Bleed A Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It. In an new article by the author called, ‘Surprise! Media Finally Wake Up To Knockout Game,’ the subtitle reads, ‘It’s only new if you have been aggressively ignoring the epidemic of black mob violence’. They have…in a big way.
Just this week, (mostly) right-leaning media sites had headlines along the lines of, ‘Knockout Game Thug Gets Shot,’ regarding an incident that happened in February. A group of black teens tried to attack a man at a bus stop with his little girl. One teen tried unsuccessfully to taze the man, who had a concealed carry, and shot the teen twice. From jail, the recovered attacker said that bored teens, not gangs, are motivated by seeing videos of successful attacks online. “It wouldn’t be an everyday game, just a certain game to be played on certain days. You don’t even try to rob them or anything. That’s the game,” said Marvell Weaver, 17. He adds that in the “not many, six or seven” other attacks he participated in, they were mostly high and done on dares. Unbelievably, even in this main article about this attack, they don’t mention this “game” is played only by black teens. In most cases, the media glosses over the race of the attackers, if they even report the incident.
Truth is, the “game” has been going on since 2005.
In a recent episode of The O’Reilly Factor, former CBS News correspondent Bernard Goldberg said,
The white liberals in the media at places that aren’t covering this are saying, ‘You know what? We don’t want to give any ammo to those white racist conservatives out there (because they equate conservatism with racism anyway), so let’s just make believe this isn’t happening.’ How despicable. How disgraceful to make believe something that is spread from one city to another isn’t a legitimate news story. Most black kids don’t do this, but a disproportionate number are either doing that, or are walking into stores and hauling entire racks of clothing out onto the street. This is like ‘Lord of the Flies.’ This is crazy stuff and the black establishment, the civil-rights establishment, has been predictably silent on this.
The terrifying question is, what will stop this, if anything? Is this going to start the ‘race war’ often mentioned on Twitter? If you go by article comments and people on Twitter, people are being more vigilant about carrying their guns to protect themselves and their families. In searching for a solution, Flaherty wrote how Greta Van Susteren of Fox News recently pleaded with black leaders to do something. “I beg of Rev. Jesse Jackson, Rev. Al Sharpton and even President Obama to step up right now and speak out,” said Van Susteren. Flaherty wasn’t impressed, writing, “She totally ignored the role Sharpton had in encouraging racial violence when in 1991 he was involved in three days of black mob violence directed at Jews in Crown Heights.” Exactly. If they gave a rat’s behind, no one would have to ask–they would have come forward in outrage long ago. That’s obviously not the solution. The truth is, even if they said something now, teens aren’t necessarily impressed with these ‘black leaders’ anyway.
Will shining a light on this insane behavior help? Red Eye host Greg Gutfeld doesn’t think so, and to illustrate, he brought up something that happened when he was a teenager. After multiple reports of deaths by autoerotic asphyxiation in America, Oprah did a show about it. After the show aired, the deaths increased. Gutfeld expressed concern that with the rush of media reports on the Knockout attacks, more attacks will occur. Guest Jedediah Bila pointed out that if the case of Marvell Weaver had been widely reported when it happened, perhaps it could have deterred other teens. Personally, I don’t think it would have mattered. Teens already have that feeling of invincibility and there’s the racial tension purposely created by the administration. I’m also sick of the simplistic idea that “if they only had something fun to do after school” or “if they only had jobs”. There are plenty of teens without jobs and bored out of their minds who don’t go around beating helpless people.
Someone has to say it, so I will: If these were white teens attacking black people, it would be called a national emergency. Someone better step up and realize that’s exactly what this is before it gets further out of control.
I strongly suggest reading at least page one of Colin Flaherty’s website, WhiteGirlBleedALot.com, to get an idea of just how serious this “game” really is.
