“Will it play in Peoria?” is a phrase dating to the 19th century, a reference to whether some idea would go over well in mainstream typical America, the premise being that if it will float in Peoria it will succeed everywhere.
One particular idea is currently playing in Peoria which regrettably is becoming all too typical in our country, young blacks rioting in the streets, threatening to “kill all white people around here,” assaulting whites, and intimidating cops, white people, and black people alike.
Peorians were advised to avoid their yards and front porches and stay indoors, as if that were a solution to the mayhem.
The real issue, however, is not only what’s been playing in Peoria but what’s also going on in the rest of America. Peoria’s violence is simply and unfortunately a microcosm of events which are largely being ignored by the mainstream media or, if reported at all, are censored.
Time and again violent incidents are occurring thoughout this great land of ours perpetrated by prople oblivious to how great it is and the MSM in large part is choosing to omit a very relevant detail, namely that African-Americans are responsible. Noted black professor and commentator Walter E. Williams has observed both the rampant chaos and the media phenomena of pretending it is committed by some amorphous, racially-unidentifiable gangs.
As Williams wrote, and substantiated, “Most racist assaults [and other crimes] are committed by blacks” and, for reasons of misguided political correctness and lack of journalistic integrity, “In many of these brutal attacks, the news media make no mention of the race of the perpetrators.” See http://bit.ly/mtX5AM
In Peoria, Paul Wilkinson, president of the Altamont Park Neighborhood Association, gave this first hand account of what he witnessed: “Tonight, around 11 p.m., a group of at least 60-70 African American youth . . . were yelling threats to white residents. Things such as we need to kill all the white people around here. They were physically intimidating anyone calling for help from the police. They were surrounding cars. . . . They were rushing residents who looked out their doors, going on to porches, yelling threats to people calling the police for help.”
If this were an isolated incident, it would still be disturbing but Wilkinson went on to say, “Residents are very shaken, both black and white alike. This is the fifth large mob action in about a month with smaller groups of 10-12 out threatening children and adults a few evenings a week or later into the night.” (http://bit.ly/isOjwT)
If Peoria were an isolated city of uncontrolled black violence, it would still be scary but what’s playing out in that Illinois city is a replication of racist black attacks and lawlessness which were common in Soweto in the 1950′s but which we don’t want to believe are happening with regularity in 2011.
Former Jewish radical David Horowitz outed the black liberation movement’s inspiration for rampages in Hating Whitey: And Other Progressive Causes, a book that provides detailed accounts of chilling examples of murder, robbery, and even gang rapes of white girls. To America’s detriment, the MSM ignored that best-seller since it was authored by a one of their own who had left the plantation, a leftist-turned-conservative.
It’s tough to continue to ignore the current chaos, although the media is doing its damned well best.
In an earlier piece, “Riotous Times in America,” (http://bit.ly/l5QQr0), I cited James Carvilles’s prediction of widespread “civil unrest” in the country, riots and “borderline riots” seen in such locales as Bessemer, Alabama and in Rahm Emanuel’s Chicago which the new mayor subsequently announced were under control.
They are far from under control even after some teen thugs were apprehended. Worse, the media cover-up goes on. The local CBS affiliate, reporting on “teenage robbery mobs” continuing to wreak havoc on commuters in the Mag Mile and elsewhere, is still afflicted with color blindness.
Meanwhile, in South Carolina an 18 year old jogger was beaten senseless and senselessly in “a savage attack.” Four of the savages were caught and will be prosecuted for “second degree assault and battery by a mob.” Ironically, that crime had previously been termed lynching, a term associated with white mobs hanging blacks.
More ironically, the story was reported in Great Britain with a picture one of the senseless black assailants. (http://bit.ly/ikgHgK)
Our semi-black president, who made clear on his census form that he identified only with his black half. pledged a new racial era, a time of racial healing, showed his true colors in Dreams from My Father when he wrote, “I find a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity toward my mother’s [white] race.”
Barack Hussein Obama’s grievances and animosities are reaching full fruition today by virtue of African-Americans expressing their grievances and animosities via vengeance on white Americans, too many of whom roll over and play dead and allow a minority to strike fear in hearts and minds of the majority.
I pity Peoria but pity the nation more.
UPDATE: New Chicago Mayor Rahm Deadfish Emanuel appointed a new top cop to run the Windy City Police Department.
Garry McCarthy has an explanation for all the black mayhem in his town. It’s not due to undisciplined mindlessness, or poor upbringing, or lax law enforcement, or a media that winks at and covers up black criminals running amok. It’s all because of slavery, Jim Crow, “government-sponsored racism,” and accessibility to firearms.
See and hear McCarthy’s speech in which he also asks his audience to contact their aldermen to support his appointment as cop boss here: http://bit.ly/kdFp7f
Someone should remind McCarthy that slavery was abolished almost a century and a half ago, that Jim Crow laws and segregation are distant, bad memories, and that few individuals are forced to buy guns and shoot people, not to mention join gangs to rob, rape, and beat up (mostly white) people.
When Mayor Rahm or one of his top honchos, or a member of one of their families, is assaulted maybe Chicago will wise up and smell reality. And maybe not.
