The Black Lives Matter campaign is a blood libel against white America. Let me explain what I mean by that.
A Blood Libel is currently defined by Wikipedia asWikipedia also says currently: Well, that’s what’s going on with Black Lives Matter. It’s one long blood libel. And it’s entirely made up.
- It’s the claim that when a policeman kills someone in self-defense, he’s a racist, and unreasonably fearful of blacks. Blacks are dangerous, and kill many police—white and black.
- It’s the claim that white cops racistly target blacks in traffic stops as a pretext for arresting them for graver crimes. Blacks, unsurprisingly, are stopped by police because “black drivers speed twice as much as white drivers, and speed at reckless levels even more” [Resetting the profile odometer, by Linda Seebach, Washington Times, March 12, 2003]
- It’s the claim that police, under attack by knife-armed blacks, or blacks attempting to run them over, are wrong to fire in self-defense. Can’t they just jump out of the way? (No, because someone aiming a car at you has a steering wheel.)
- It’s the claim that police are regularly killing many “unarmed” blacks (“unarmed” in quotes because many die trying to seize the defender’s gun—this is true of Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, and “jogger” Ahmaud Arbery) and unarmed black teenagers are dangerous, killing many people every year.
- It’s the claim that widely publicized deaths are caused by deliberate action by police.
- Black reporter Wesley Lowery has a book called They Can’t Kill Us All, based on two or three deaths (and a lot of rioting) in Ferguson and Baltimore. This is another blood libel—no one is trying to “kill them all”—the police are trying to keep them from killing each other.
These widely publicized deaths are usually the result of either a criminal attack by a black person on a police officer or an accidental death attributable to the arrested black person’s own bad health.
Eric Garner didn’t die of being choked—that was a lie. He died of weighing 350 pounds and straining himself by fighting police [The Actual Facts of The Eric Garner Case, by Ben Shapiro, Breitbart, December 3, 2014].
George Floyd didn’t die from having his neck knelt on—that was a lie, too. The police autopsy said that he died of a heart attack, and had drugs and traces of Covid-19 in his system, and he was complaining of breathing problems while still upright [Newly released body camera transcripts show last moments of George Floyd’s life—”You’re doing a lot of talking, man.” former officer Derek Chauvin said. by Ella Torres, ABC, July 9, 2020]. Police refused believe he couldn’t breathe because he could talk—if you’ve ever been choked in judo or jujitsu class you know that the instant you can’t breathe, you also can’t talk.
Freddie Gray didn’t die from a “rough ride” in Baltimore—that was a lie, as the failure to convict any of the police involved shows.
This blood libel, which David Cole calls The Myth That Burns Our Cities [TakiMag, July 7, 2020], has been sold to black America and younger, more liberal parts of white America, and is responsible for a lot of deaths. It hugely increases the black on black murder rate when police are knocked back, and rioters and Black Lives Matter gunmen kill a lot of people directly.
The basic unreported fact is the huge amount of crime committed by blacks, which it’s considered indecent to speak of in a newspaper.
Steve Sailer asked recently, based on some research, if blacks were only about eight times as murderous as whites (a ratio that James Q. Wilson wrote in 2002 has “existed for well over a century ” ) or 11.7 times as murderous, based on some recent research.
Heather Mac Donald, writing in the Wall Street Journal, calls “systemic police racism” a myth, and she has, as usual, evidence to prove it:
Sarah Palin was attacked by the ADL and various Jewish leaders for saying it was a “blood libel” when every MSM opinionator and Democratic party functionary accused her of inspiring a mass shooting in Tucson. (The shooter was an apolitical madman.)
But Rabbi Shmuley Boteach defended Palin in the Wall Street Journal [Sarah Palin Is Right About ‘Blood Libel’ | Judaism rejects the idea of collective responsibility for murder, January 14, 2011]. Alan Dershowitz defended her in the Guardian [Anyone can use ‘blood libel’ – even Sarah Palin, by Alan Dershowitz, Guardian, January 13, 2011] and Ann Coulter defended her in her syndicated column
The theory of Palin’s critics is that the concept of “blood libel” is unique to the Jewish experience, and must not be used by other groups, being reserved for this particular myth. (See U.S. Jewish Leaders Slam Sarah Palin’s Blood Libel Accusation, by Natasha Mozgovaya, Haaretz, January 12, 2011—a headline that suggests Palin had committed a blood libel, rather than being on the receiving end of one.)
Given that, it’s obviously evidence of double standards that two separate Jewish critics of Trump (Paul Krugman and Joshua Micah Marshall) did not scruple to accuse him of committing a “blood libel” against, respectively, Muslims and Mexicans—who are, despite both men’s wonkish references to crime rates, actually killing people:
- Trump’s Blood Libel & Press Failure, by Josh Marshall, TPM, September 2, 2016,
- Return of the Blood Libel, by Paul Krugman, June 21, 2018
The point is that both Marshall and Krugman seem to believe immigrant crime is a myth, in spite of the evidence, and that in pointing out immigrant crime—mostly by illegals, who by definition are all criminals, of course—Trump is maligning these people and setting the white majority against them.
In another story from Haaretz, the headline of which once again makes it look as if Palin was the one committing the libel, Palin was quoted as saying
So “Black Lives Matter” isn’t just a “myth.”
I repeat—it’s a BLOOD LIBEL.
And, while it’s true that blacks themselves may be, for the thousandth time, “hardest hit” by uncontrolled black violence, maybe politicians and pundits should give some thought to the intended victims of this Blood Libel and the resultant pogroms—white America.
