Five Black Cops Beat Black Memphis Motorist to Death As a Confused Nation Decides Whether It’s Appropriate to Riot
At least since the 1991 beating of Rodney King, Americans have been clubbed over the head with the idea that cops are simply Klansmen in blue uniforms rather than white sheets. Mitigating circumstances never mattered for those who blindly swallowed this narrative.
Even in Rodney King’s case, most Americans never saw the full videotape in which King kept getting up and attacking police. They were told that King was beaten by “four white policemen,” despite the fact that one of the four cops was Mexican by blood. Americans were not informed, at least not in any of the narratives I heard — and I had the misfortune of living in Los Angeles during the 1992 Rodney King riots — that King had two partners with him on the night he was beaten. Those two partners obeyed police orders to stay down on the ground and, as luck would have it, were not beaten. As a result of such deliberate mangling and withholding of information in the service of a fraudulent narrative, 63 people died in the riots, and American race relations took a permanent turn for the worse.
Every subsequent high-profile case where a black criminal suspect either died or suffered a few lumps while in police custody was also marred by such inconvenient mitigating circumstances. From Eric Garner to Mike Brown to George Floyd and all the rest, the media carefully sidestepped the fact that the alleged victims had at the very least resisted arrest. Reporters also tied on their ballerina slippers and carefully pirouetted around pesky facts such as that George Floyd was zonked out of his mind on fentanyl, and that Mike Brown had just robbed a convenience store before attempting to snatch Darren Wilson’s gun from him. It seemed as if the media actually wanted riots — and riots they got.
A recent case in Memphis, a town that harbors some of the nation’s orneriest Negroes, also involves a black criminal suspect resisting arrest and temporarily being able to flee custody on foot. But on the night of January 7, when police caught up with Tyre Nichols — pronounced “Tyree Nickels” — video footage from bodycams and a nearby light pole shows them giving him a vicious thrashing involving multiple kicks to the head and at least five unanswered sucker punches. Nichols was hospitalized and died three days later from “extensive bleeding caused by a severe beating.”
Bodycam audio reveals the police gloating after Nichols was finally subdued, saying things such as “That was fun,” “I hope they stomp his ass,” “I was hitting him with straight haymakers, dog,” and “I jumped in, started rocking him.” I’m aware of no similarly sadistic and triumphalist comments from any of the police in the King, Brown, Garner, or Floyd cases.
So do we finally have a case which snugly fits the Official False Narrative?
Nope, we don’t, seeing as how all five cops who are now being charged with second-degree murder for beating Nichols to death are inconveniently black. Say their names: Emmit Martin III, Justin Smith, Tadarrius Bean, Demetrius Haley, and Desmond Mills. Say “Tadarrius Bean” multiple times, if you wish. I did, and doing so brightened an otherwise bleak January afternoon. The fact that a black cop named “Tadarrius Bean” is charged with beating a black motorist to death is as funny to me as the fact that a white cop named “Stacey Koon” was charged in the Rodney King incident.
Current Memphis Police Chief Cerelyn “CJ” Davis is a black woman who, a source in Atlanta law enforcement tells me, was formerly employed as an Atlanta cop but was demoted for allegedly covering up sexual misdeeds by an Atlanta police sergeant. The source also says that Davis was eventually promoted to her current position due to the ruling regime’s demand to cram as many underqualified black chicks into top positions as possible. Davis has wasted no time rushing to judgment and standing before cameras to announce that the five black cops’ behavior was a “failing of basic humanity.” She insisted that the officers’ original alibi for stopping Nichols due to reckless driving was not supported by any available evidence. She even said that what happened to Nichols was “about the same, if not worse” than the Rodney King beating.
Well, sure. Rodney King wasn’t beaten to death. I’m no mind-reader, but it did occur to me that Chief Davis may be making a public display of condemning the five Brothas in Blue not due to any innate sense of fair play, but to spare her own head from the guillotine.
Racial ambulance-chaser Tim Wise seems certain, though, that the culprit was, but of course, “white supremacy”: “Anyone who says the killing of Tyre Nichols can’t be about racism because the cops were also Black [sic] really doesn’t understand how white supremacy or anti-Blackness [sic] work.”
Please, dearest Uncle Tim, enlighten us about how white supremacy really works, because white supremacists clearly can’t figure out how to make whites supreme in this society.
There was a smattering of riots and “unrest” in Memphis and other American cities over the weekend after the bodycam footage was released on Friday. Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, in response to both the Nichols beating and a local crisis involving a police training center, has summoned 1,000 National Guard soldiers to patrol the state until at least February 9.
This may mark the first time in American history that the summer riot season started in mid-winter.
Project Veritas: Gay Black Pfizer Employee Chimps Out After Being Recorded Trying to Impress a Date by Bragging that Infecting Monkeys with Mutated Viruses Is a “Cash Cow”
James O’Keefe and Project Veritas have pulled off what is likely their most impressively damning and far-reaching coup yet by recording a gay black Pfizer employee boasting about how his company is fuckin’ around with COVID variants to preemptively manufacture new vaccines and make a bundle of cash in the process.
The employee, a fruity black man with a dolphin’s forehead named Jordon Trishton Walker, Pfizer Director of Research and Development, Strategic Operations, was filmed on the evening of January 24 at a restaurant in New York City. In one video, in an apparent attempt to seduce his male date with juicy details about how he’s a bad boy doing bad things with a big bad company, Walker eagerly dishes about how Pfizer is allegedly doing things they are not legally empowered to do:
One of the things we’re exploring is like, why don’t we just mutate it [COVID] ourselves so we could create — preemptively develop new vaccines, right? So, we have to do that. If we’re gonna do that, though, there’s a risk of, like, as you could imagine — no one wants to be having a pharma company mutating fucking viruses. . . . Don’t tell anyone. Promise you won’t tell anyone. The way it [the experiment] would work is that we put the virus in monkeys, and we successively cause them to keep infecting each other, and we collect serial samples from them. . . . You have to be very controlled to make sure that this virus [COVID] that you mutate doesn’t create something that just goes everywhere. Which, I suspect, is the way that the virus started in Wuhan, to be honest. It makes no sense that this virus popped out of nowhere. It’s bullshit. . . . Because some of the times there are mutations that pop up that we are not prepared for. Like with Delta and Omicron. And things like that. Who knows? Either way, it’s going to be a cash cow. COVID is going to be a cash cow for us for a while going forward. Like, obviously. . . . It’s pretty good for the industry, to be honest. It’s bad for everybody else in America.
Another video depicts Walker flippin’ the frick out after Veritas head honcho James O’Keefe saunters into the restaurant and confronts him with footage of his boastful statements. Walker immediately cries foul, starts flailing around like one of those inflatable balloon men you see at used-car lots, demands that the restaurant owners keep O’Keefe and his crew locked in the restaurant as he calls police to inform them that five “white men” are making him feel unsafe, insists that he was lying only to impress his date just like all “normal men” do, desperately tries to seize O’Keefe’s iPad and destroy all evidence by smashing the device on the ground, and then rushes outside to block a vehicle that he mistook as carrying Veritas crew members.
His reaction to being outed as a possible enabler of one of the most sinister corporate schemes in world history was so egregiously dramatic that it suggests he was not only panicking about losing his job — he was terrified of being suddenly made to look as if he’d committed suicide.
Walker had fled the scene by the time police — two black police — arrived to inform Project Veritas members that if Walker had remained at the restaurant, they would have arrested him for assault.
His mama could have told him that bad things happen when monkeys monkey around with monkeys.
Pfizer released a statement denying all of Walker’s allegations, forever settling the controversy.
Podhoretz: Jews Have Too Much Power to Be Cool Anymore
John Podhoretz looks like a gay egg with glasses. He is the aggressively Jewish son of the aggressively Jewish Norman Podhoretz, who wrote the landmark 1963 Commentary magazine essay called “My Negro Problem — And Ours,” which was commendable in that it challenged a narrative that was prevalent even back then: namely, that blacks are the helpless victims of white-supremacist violence. In the elder Podhoretz’s experience, blacks were the one group in New York City who weren’t shy about beating the shit out of all the other groups in New York City.
In what has to be at least the partial result of his tribe’s lauded nepotism, the younger Podhoretz is now the editor of Commentary. He recently published an essay in Sapir, which describes itself as “A quarterly journal for a thriving Jewish future,” titled “‘A Swinging Bunch of People’ No Longer.”
The article’s subhead is “When and how did Judaism change from Sammy Davis Jr.’s cool to Kanye’s antisemitism?” Podhoretz traces the arc of Jewish cultural ascendancy in America, citing a 1948 essay by James Baldwin in Commentary about how “the Negro identifies himself almost wholly with the Jew” because both groups shared an identity of having been excluded from mainstream American life by those gosh-darned self-centered white supremacists.
As Jews wormed their way into power during the 1950s, several prominent celebrities such as Sammy Davis, Jr., Elizabeth Taylor, and Marilyn Monroe converted to Judaism, all of them proclaiming that they personally identified with the alleged suffering that American Jews were forced to endure. Jews’ perceived outlaw status back then led Sammy Davis, Jr. to christen them as “a swinging bunch of people.”
Three generations later, we American Jews find ourselves facing a new cultural model of antisemitism. There’s an argument to be made that Kanye West is a 21st-century version of Sammy Davis Jr., but while Davis joined The Chosen, West has become the most nakedly antisemitic cultural figure we’ve seen in American public life in a dog’s age. . . . Sammy Davis Jr. was attracted to Judaism; West has been seduced by the oldest and most enduring hatred on earth.
Jeepers, why would that hatred be so enduring? It’s one of the world’s great mysteries.
While acknowledging that at least for marketing purposes, Jews are much more appealing when they are perceived to be victims rather than bullies, Podhoretz argues that their gradual accumulation of power is a sweet thing indeed and shouldn’t be tossed away simply to appear “cool” to their inferiors:
Therefore, whatever we are and whatever we can be, we cannot be cool. Cool has a transgressive aspect, and Jews are the ultimate A students who want to please the teacher and get in good with the administration. Nor can we hope to win over the likes of West with efforts to convince him that Jews also have a history of oppression, and that Jews today are under a new kind of threat – a threat that he himself represents in part. . . . Instead, we need to capitalize on the century of Jewish-American achievement as a form of cultural self-defense – and use, on our own behalf, the very power that the West and others are so disgusted by. We don’t need to be cool. We need to be self-confident and angry and unashamed about using whatever power we have accrued to ensure that the demons of history do not emerge here.
I doubt it was his intention, but he sure makes those “demons of history” sound cool.
