Dog Whistlers Run For Cover


John Grant

Our ancestors were literally fighting to keep human beings as slaves and to continue the unimaginable acts that occur when someone is held against their will. I am not proud of this heritage.

This is the beginning of communism.

A young man gets hooked on a volatile political website, obtains a modern weapon, pumps up his sense of vengeful zealotry, latches onto a symbolic target and kills a handful of people. Why does this “radicalized” young man do this? To advance what he feels in his tumultuous, troubled inner life is an important goal, a greater conflagration — all to satisfy his youthful, lone-wolf feelings of dissatisfaction with the status-quo.

In America, if that young man is a Muslim and the website is focused on attacking the globalized, consumer culture of the National Security State — it’s terrorism. If the young man is a white American attacking African Americans … well, if you listen to Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity, he’s an individual, Godless lunatic and the real problem is “far-left race-hustlers” who hate America and want to destroy it.

“You talkin' to me!” Dylann Roof posturing with his new Glock and the Council of Conservative Citizens website

Since the first moments following Dylann Storm Roof’s shooting of nine African American Christians in Charleston, I’ve been watching a lot of Fox News and MSNBC. Even before rigor mortis set in on the nine bodies, after expressing his condolences, O’Reilly began flogging the individual maniac line hard. Race problems in America, he insisted over and over, have been solved and any other explanation was far-left race-hustling. MSNBC conceded Roof was likely not mentally well, but it quickly assumed what might be called a social-dysfunction line focused on the persistence of racism in America.

Eugene Robinson, a Pulitzer-prize winning, African American columnist at The Washington Post, was the spiritual center of MSNBC’s coverage, since he was raised as a black kid in Charleston; his grandfather had a blacksmith shop near murder site, the famous AME church known affectionately as Mother Emanuel. Robinson is a moderate, easy-going man, and you felt in his heart he understood only too well what this was all about. He was not shy in calling it race-based, white nationalist terrorism.

  • can you provide us with your tangible, factual, personal firsthand, irrefutable evidence that anyone was killed in a church in South Carolina? Nope! you’re just regurgitating the meme proffered by known pathological liars in the so called, government and mainstream media who never ever have an agenda and have never ever lied, right??
    What? you mean they have lied, a lot?? but you choose to believe them now?? Why??

    • Please. By that standard I can say that there is No proof what so ever that Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush or the Trumpet is running for President. The announcements and videos you have seen have all been High Money Hollywood Holograms.

      It’s all an illusion people…….nothing to see in this election. :lol:

      • don’t try to rationalize their lies by giving me some halfassed scenario.. do you admit that the govt and mainstream media lie?? therein is your answer or insanity.. you either acknowledge that they are known pathological liars or you’re part of the problem!
