Same old crap though. A group of 'Kids". These people will never admit the truth and that spells doom for our race and civilization. They are willing to lie not only to the public but to themselves and when that happens as a group reality will take you.
Well, I think a lot of the problem is that you can't say the plain unvarnished truth about incidents like this because you wind up being the bad guy. The company I worked for before I retired had us attend "human relations" sessions that basically inculcated the principle that any negative comment made concerning an ethnic or minority group would have negative ramifications career wise. For instance, if I said "bee's can sting you" I would be considered to be guilty of maligning bees because that is a "generalization." The validity of the statement is totally irrelevant. It's a really hard habit to break after so many years. Since she appears to be a state worker, for her to go on CNN and say what she really thought would have had her at the unemployment office the following Monday. It's a really negative aspect of our society but it's one you have to take into account. I absolutely agree with your comment. It's another aspect of our society that shows how decadent we've become as a people.
Oh I know all the reasons the funny thing about that is that they are lying to themselves and others to protect their jobs and retirement but the lie has went so far and ignored for so long those very things they are trying to protect are now in jeopardy from the disease it enabled. Any State worker or retired pensioner who believes for one moment these same masses of minorities they been protecting and allowing to come in a replace our children and grand children are going to take care of em in retirement are delusional. Ultimately they are sacrificing what they claim to be protecting.
I have often found that doing what you know to be right on a philosophical level is tough when it has a real world impact on you or your family personally. Life is just that way. Personally, I try to do what I think is right, and it's not an accident that my middle brother the Cynic calls me Don Quixote. On the other hand, sometimes you have to take reality into account. I wish it wasn't that way, but I'll bet even the Crusaders had to compromise sometimes. Or, thinking about Bohemond and Tancred, maybe not. But they were last one's who didn't I'll wager.
Funny you would mention the crusades though. Compromise is possible when dealing with everyday matters and interests but this PC thing has went way past that into the realm of religion at least for the Lefty progressives. Much like the crusaders of old too much compromise and you find yourself in chains or rotting on the plains of Hattin.
I make generalizations about 'people' (groups) but I never make generalizations about 'persons' (individuals). The only suitable analogy I can give is: I dislike women, but I'm a big fan of woman.
All about situational awareness. So many people do not pay attention to their surroundings and let their guard down and are prey for these thugs. My thoughts, try that with me, three letters, DRT (Dead right there), period.
I preach situational awareness to my kids constantly. These groups going around attacking people like this seem to be going after women, kids, and old people. The Other Ryan did tell me about some guy they attacked who produced a blade and did some judicious carving on one of them though, which is heartening.
This knockout game well get of control, and it's a shame that our society has come to this. I hope the perps wake up and realize they will target the wrong person.
Well, the good thing about it is, when they do pick on the wrong victim, they'll only do it once.
"Blacks bring the knock out game to London"Wow, actually used the "B" word. Mighty ballsy of them.Black Thuggery is what "Hoot" Al Sharpton called the knock out game. Blacks are too often trouble. Our Liberal society turns a blind eye to these black problems and admonishes the rest of us if we speak up - like the number of times I have been called a racist/bigot on Facebook. How much more of this Hip-Hop Black Thuggery are we going to take?We could start by calling a spade a spade. Like some of you folks I travel armed. The knock out game will quickly escalate to the shoot out game if me or mine is attacked.-Moe
Moe, once a few of them get ventilated I suspect the allure of the Knock Out Game will vanish once and for all. They seem to be picking on easy targets for the most part, though.
Be nice if the Shoot Back game spreads as well.
As someone pointed out, the police don't seem to be very interested in actively putting an end to this. Most of the people who are getting thumped aren't the proactive types. Until some of the "players" wind up face down in the gutter , the cost of playing will not be prohibitive. I agree, it would be nice if people fought back. The only instance I have heard of where someone did was the one The Other Ryan mentioned where somebody was attacked and had a knife which they apparently weilded to good effect.
