WHITE MAN MASSACRES NINE BLACKS AT A CHARLESTON CHURCH - The US media, politicians, and black leaders blame America and white racism, although when perpetrators are black or Muslim, they tell us not to generalize, and even find excuses for such violence

Nine black people massacred by white man in a South Carolina church. 
White America to blame? 

Why is it racism only when a white person commits a crime against another race or against Islam?
  • The leftist media have already began to blame this attack on "white racism".
  • When Muslims murder non-Muslims, authorities are quick to dismiss the connection between the perpetrators and their ideology:  Islam.  They repeat over and over that  jihadis are an aberration of Islam, the religion of peace.
  • When Muslims massacre Jews in a French Jewish supermarket, the US president dismisses it as gunmen targeting "random folks". 
  • When Palestinians massacre a group of rabbis at a Jerusalem synagogue, or cut the throats of children and a baby after infiltrating a "settler" home, it is blamed on the "occupation". 
  • But when a Muslim is targeted by non-Muslims - and these instances are very, very rare (and the allegations quite often made up by Muslims themselves) -  it is blamed on non-Muslim racism (although Islam is not a race).
  • When black people attack Jews, it is because of "Jewish privilege."  A black councilwoman blamed Jews' success for eliciting black envy and violence. 
  • When leftists and Muslims attack Jews everywhere in the world, it is blamed on Israel's so-called "occupation" of its own Biblical land.
  • When black folks engage in violent crime and wanton destruction of property, it is blamed on black poverty and on white racism.
  • When black people assault white people, and they do it all the time, it is excused as an understandable reaction to white racism, not blamed on the perpetrator's own racism.
  • When statistics show that blacks are overrepresented in arrests and convictions for violent crimes, this is blamed on racism, not on the fact that they actually commit more violent crimes than whites.  There are also more men than women in jail, obviously because men are more prone to break the law than women.
  • But when a white guy takes a gun and massacres innocent black folks, then it is the fault of the entire American white race. 
  • Salon magazine, for example,  is demanding all of “white America answer for” these murders NPR will certainly indulge in exploiting this particular crime for months and years to come.

  • He let one woman escape so she could tell the world what happened while a child survived by playing dead
  • Shooter was taking suboxone, a narcotic that is used to treat opiate addiction, and that has been linked to other outbursts of extreme violence in the past. 
  • Regardless of the shooter's mental health, the media will continue to attribute his acts to White America's racism.

    Charleston Shooter Was on Drug Linked to Violent Outbursts
    Pharmaceutical giants who produce drugs like Zoloft, Prozac and Paxil spend around $2.4 billion dollars a year on direct-to-consumer television advertising every year. By running negative stories about prescription drugs, networks risk losing tens of millions of dollars in ad revenue, which is undoubtedly one of the primary reasons why the connection is habitually downplayed or ignored entirely.

    Salon: ‘White America Must Answer
    For Charleston Church Massacre
    With a manhunt still underway for the person responsible for the massacre 9 people in a Charleston, South Carolina church, already the Left is exploiting the shooting deaths of nine innocents to further their political agenda. Salon is demanding all of white America answer for” these murders:
    The story is still developing. At present, Charleston authorities are reporting that this mass shooting and likely right-wing domestic terrorist assault is a hate crime.
    While this horrific event is one more murderous and racist blow to the African-American community in Charleston–the killing of Walter Scott by a white thug cop being the most high-profile and recent offense–the reporting on the mass shooting at Emanuel Baptist is an additional affront via the White Racial Frame as practiced by the mainstream news media.
    A Daily Beast editor has already used the Charleston massacre to attack guns and Americans.



    The NAACP issues a statement

    NAACP President Cornell William Brooks said in a statement that the gunman is a “coward.”
    “The NAACP was founded to fight against racial hatred and we are outraged that 106 years later, we are faced today with another mass hate crime. Our heartfelt prayers and soul-deep condolences go out to the families and community of the victims at Charleston’s historic Emanuel AME Church,” 
    “The senselessly slain parishioners were in a church for Wednesday night bible study. There is no greater coward than a criminal who enters a house of God and slaughters innocent people engaged in the study of scripture. Today I mourn as an AME minister, as a student and teacher of scripture, as well as a member of the NAACP.”



    It's not widely known that the NAACP - so quick to allege racism - excludes the name of one of its founders on its website because he was a Jew. 
    It also fails to mention some strong early supporters of the NAACP because they were Jews.

    Henry Moskowitz, Ph.D., one of the original co-founders of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), has been excluded from the list of prominent "People" under the History heading of the new NAACP Website.
    Of all the founders of the NAACP, it is only Dr. Moskowitz (1879-1936) which is missing, leaving a gaping hole in the history of the organization.
    While Dr. Moskowitz' name is fleetingly mentioned in small print on a non-primary page of the NAACP Website, it is a sad commentary that the organization has not added him, his background information, his photo, and his name to the list of prominent people in their encyclopedic alphabetical index, which includes past and present NAACP leaders.
    Of all the NAACP founders, only Dr. Moskowitz, one of the original eight, has been marginalized from the history portion of the official NAACP Website.
    Further, and even more interesting to note, is that other early NAACP supporters and founders included: Lillian Wald, Rabbi Emil G. Hirsh, and Rabbi Stephen S. Wise, all of them are missing from the NAACP Website where past leaders and prominent persons are listed.
    Who  is listed? People such as such as Harry Belafonte, Rodney King, Oprah Winfrey and President Obama are included.

    Blacks beating up Jews  -  The Knockout Game
    New York City has been hit by a spate of anti-Semitic attacks perpetrated by black youths in a phenomenon called the "Knockout Game." 
    Brooklyn councilwoman blames knockout game on the Jewish victims' success
    Brooklyn Councilwoman Laurie Cumbo blamed the recent ‘knockout game’ attacks in her district on the growth and success of the Jewish Community. In a Facebook post she says, “Many of her black constituents told her they feel threatened by the growth of the neighborhood’s Jewish community.”

    - Jewish author who fought along with many other Jews for Afro-American civil rights looks back feeling betrayed
     - Although quick to denounce "racism", blacks have a long history of anti-Semitism in America.  
    By Jack Engelhard 
    No gratitude was expected -- but neither was scorn, contempt, derision and backstabbing.
    Bigotry has no bounds. We hear that rioters in Ferguson, USA have found the enemy and it is…the Jews!  Yes the Jews. 
    Protesters have been marching with signs equating the “suffering” of blacks with the “suffering” of “Palestinians.”
    How Israel got into the picture, six thousand miles away, nobody knows. Reggie Bush ought to know. The football star was up there with the rest of them denouncing the police and while he was at it, denouncing Israel. Maybe someone ought to inform this millionaire athlete that, going back to the 1960s, Jews were front and center for the Civil Rights movement.
    They marched with Martin Luther King Jr. The first name (among many) that comes to mind is Rabbi Abraham Heschel.
    Many risked their lives and some even lost their lives for the sake of equality. Two (among many) come to mind. Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner.
    These Jewish Civil Rights activists were murdered by the KKK near Philadelphia, Mississippi for their participation in the Freedom Summer of 1964.
    This is the thanks for all that sacrifice-- and please, Reggie, name your “Palestinians” who risked their lives for Civil Rights.
    Likewise, I also marched so that Blacks can share with Whites equality and harmony. I expected no gratitude. I did it in the name of justice. I would do it again. 
    But right now I feel like a sucker, hoodwinked, sucker-punched and duped.
    I just said, no gratitude expected -- but scorn, contempt, derision and backstabbing, this I did not expect.
    Fortunately we can count on the silent majority of African Americans who know that we are brothers. They have no time for prejudice.
    So I know that I was part of an idealistic generation that believed “we shall overcome” – and we did. To a large extent we did overcome. We succeeded. But only to find one set of prejudices shifted and parlayed onto another set of prejudices, the onus placed squarely and with a vengeance upon the usual suspects.
    I cannot help but find myself depressed and disillusioned. Apparently people will always need someone else to accuse, however false or baseless the accusation.
    Attacks against Israel on charges of racism, from the likes of Reggie Bush, Alice Walker et al, are particularly obnoxious considering the risky airlift named Operation Moses, which rescued some 8,000 Ethiopian Jews from Sudan. They were brought to Israel in 1984 to join a small Family that is big enough for everybody.
    Israel is by far the most inclusive society in the entire region.
    But the facts, the truth will never stop the hucksters and the multitudes that heed them. False prophets are playing with our world.
    Into the teeth of all that promise of the 1960s, in some ways we are worse off than ever before. My generation’s Martin Luther King is this generation’s Al Sharpton. The world’s biggest liar, a punk named Mahmoud Abbas, is greeted around the world as if he were Winston Churchill. Shakedown artists seem to have the final word.
    Banners demanding Boycott have replaced yesteryear’s banners entreating Love.
    The music never died, but so many high hopes have been dashed and somewhere Martin Luther King’s Dream remains a pipe dream.

    The History of Black Anti-Semitism in America
    Anti-Semitism has had a long history among African Americans. In the 1920s, for instance, the “buy-black” campaign of the black-nationalist leader Marcus Garvey was explicitly targeted against Jews, and Garvey later spoke admiringly of Adolf Hitler.

    In February 1948 the black writer James Baldwin acknowledged how widespread anti-Semitism was in his community, writing: “Georgia has the Negro and Harlem has the Jew.”

    Mississippi KKK Conspiracy Murders June 21 1964 Victims Chaney Goodman Schwerner.jpgNPR - This weekend (June 2014)  marks 50 years since three young civil rights workers went missing in Philadelphia, Miss., drawing the nation's attention to the brutal resistance to equal rights in the South at the time.
    Freedom Summer drew hundreds of young Americans to Mississippi in 1964. The goal was to register black voters and teach African-American students at makeshift Freedom Schools. 
    The rural Mount Zion Church in Neshoba County was supposed to host one of those teach-ins. But on June 16, the Ku Klux Klan made sure that would not happen.  The church was burned down.
    On June 21, Father's Day, three young civil rights workers — James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner — came to check on the church members.
    As the activists drove away, they were arrested by a sheriff's deputy and later released into a Klan ambush. It took 44 days to find their bodies buried in an earthen dam.
    The state of Mississippi didn't prosecute any of the murderers until Klan leader Edgar Ray Killen was convicted in 2005, 41 years to the day after the three workers were killed.
    Photo of James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner (Wikipedia)
    Most articles do not mention that Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner were Jewish. 
    This is deliberate.  There is an effort to erase the long fight for black civil rights by Jewish activists.  If their names are mentioned, their ethnicity is censored.

    One of the problems encountered by black activists is that Jews have a much longer history of being victimized.  The Holocaust is only the culmination of many centuries of discrimination, oppression, torture, and massacres.

    However, in spite of all this suffering, Jews have managed to maintain their culture, respect for learning, family, morality and the Torah.   Even atheist Jews upheld that tradition. 


    Jews who survived the horrors of the Nazi concentration camps found themselves alone at the end of the war, without family, without their homes or possessions.  They were traumatized and literally with only the rags they were wearing.


    But they rebounded.   In spite of ever present prejudice and discrimination, they created new families, new businesses, sent their children to university, contributed to their new communities .... 


    This culture was also evident in the waves of Jewish and other ethnic groups who arrived in America with nothing in the 19th century, and who raised themselves from poverty through self-reliance and hard work.
    All of that proves that a person can surmount even the most horrific challenges - and disproves that Afro-American social problems can continue to be blamed on slavery and discrimination. 
    This does not go well with black politicians and activists who make careers out of passing all blame for crime and other social problems on discrimination.
    The fact is that a large number of Afro-Americans do meet their many challenges and make an honest living while being good parents.  Sometimes the economy is the biggest obstacle, but the work ethic is there.  That's something that professional activists don't like to consider.
    ANOTHER REASON for some Afro-Americans lashing out at the Jews is that Jews are a soft target.  Blacks don't suffer consequences for showing racism against Jews, since whites do too.  Jews don't retaliate or sue or boycott blacks.  Or take matters into their own hands.

    The murder of the civil rights workers

    By Jeff Dunetz
    A tragic car accident in Crown Heights Brooklyn escalated into a pogrom against the Jewish people, thanks in part to black faux-preacher Alan Sharpton. 

    The media gives this pogrom a politically correct description, violence between the area's Blacks and Jews. They ignore the fact that the violence was not two-sided. The Crown Heights riot was an attack on the Jews by the neighborhood's Caribbean community.
    Black Antisemitism in the Summer of 1991

    Jews were a key part of the civil rights movement in the 1960s---when the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. made his famous march to Selma Alabama, he walked hand in hand with many Jews including Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel. Along with the Jews was a contingent of Torahs to emphasize that the quest for Civil Rights was a holy mission for the Jewish people.
    In spite of the strong Jewish participation in the civil rights movement the transformation from the peaceful marches to Black power movement introduced considerable friction into African American-Jewish relations, especially within the “Black Muslim” movement. 

    During the 1970s and 1980s African-Americans stopped looking at Jews as their allies but as their oppressors. The Jews were seen as having the political power that the African-Americans desired. Black  leaders such as Louis Farrakhan, and Jesse Jackson went public with anti-Semitic comments.
    Adding to the hatred were the leaders of the South African anti-Apartheid movement who traveled throughout the United States as conquering heroes, and spreading Jew-hatred.  For example, in 1984  Desmond Tutu publicly complained about American Jews having “an arrogance—the arrogance of power because Jews are a powerful lobby in this land and all kinds of people woo their support.
    Understandably Jewish/Black relations were already rocky as NY City entered the summer of 1991.
    On July 20, 1991, Leonard Jeffries of City College who had a history of anti-Semitic slurs presented a two-hour long speech claiming “rich Jews" financed the slave trade, Jews control the film industry (together with Italian mafia), and use that control to paint a brutal stereotype of blacks. Jeffries also attacked Diane Ravitch, (Assistant Secretary of Education) calling her a "sophisticated Texas Jew," "a debonair racist" and "Miss Daisy.
    Jeffries’ speech received enormous negative press during the first weeks of August especially from the leaders of the Jewish community who wanted Jeffries fired for the bigotry.
    With each new criticism of the professor, leaders in the African-American community rushed to Jeffries' defense.  NYC’s two black newspapers as well as black radio station WLIB; joined activists such Al Sharpton, Colin Moore, C. Vernon Mason, Sonny Carson, and Lenora Fulani to showcase their approval of Jeffries’s “scholarship” and to denounce the people who criticized Jeffries Antisemitism as race baiting.
    Al Sharpton's anti-Semitism
    Serial race-baiter Al Sharpton is credited with saying, “If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house" as a response the Crown Heights riot. That is a fallacy; he made that threatening comment to the Jewish community about the growing Jeffries controversy on August 18th the day before the riots began. Clearly something bad was coming.
    Jeffries was fired because of his bigoted speech and pressure from the Jewish community (he was later reinstated and won a court case surrounding his firing) leading to further resentment of the Jews from a Black community already being barraged with anti-Jewish incitement from the African-American media.

    Crown Heights Ignites
    On Monday 8/19/91 a station wagon driven by Yosef Lifsh, hit another car and bounced onto the sidewalk at 8:21 p.m.
    The station wagon was part of a 3-car motorcade carrying the Lubavitcher Rebbe Menachem Schneerson. The Rebbe was in a different car.
    The station wagon struck two black children, 7-year-old cousins Gavin and Angela Cato who were on the sidewalk.
    Lifsh immediately got out of his car and tried to help the children gathering crowd started to attack him.
    Within minutes, an ambulance from the Hasidic-run ambulance service, and two from the city's Emergency Medical Service arrived. 
    Also the gathering crowd became unruly.  The police who showed up radioed for backup reporting the station wagon’s driver and passengers were being assaulted. Police officer Nona Capace ordered the Hasidic ambulance to remove the battered Yosef Lifsh, and his passenger from the scene.
    The injured children went by separate city ambulances to Kings County Hospital. Gavin Cato was pronounced dead; his cousin survived.
     Rumors spread
    A rumor began to spread that the Hasidic ambulance crew had ignored the dying black child in favor of treating the Jewish men. Ignoring the commandment about bearing false witness, Sharpton used this  falsehood to incite the crowd.
     Other rumors sprang up  Lifsh was intoxicated (breath alcohol test administered by the police proved his sobriety).
    More falsehoods circulated; Lifsh did not have a valid driver's license; he went through a red light; the police prevented people including Gavin Cato's father, from assisting in the rescue.

    Charles Price, an area resident who had come to the scene of the accident, incited the masses with claims that, "The Jews get everything they want. They're killing our children." Price later pled guilty for inciting the crowd to murder Yankel Rosenbaum.


    Ignited by the falsehoods, resentment exploded into violence. Groups of young black men threw rocks, bottles and debris at police, residents and homes.





    According to the New York Times, more than 250 neighborhood residents went on a rampage that first night, mostly black teenagers, many of whom were shouting "Jews! Jews! Jews!" Three hours after the tragic crash, 29-year-old Australian Jewish scholar Yankel Rosenbaum was attacked by a gang of Black teens. He was stabbed four times.
    Cops quickly arrested Lemrick Nelson, who was identified by Rosenbaum as his attacker.
    Rosenbaum's wounds were not fatal he was expected to recover; Mayor Dinkins visited Rosenbaum at the hospital. Yankel died at 2:30am Tuesday because the hospital staff missed one of his knife wounds.
    The next evening, according to the sworn testimony of Efraim Lipkind, a former Hasidic resident of Crown Heights, Sharpton started agitating the crowd.
    “Then we had a famous man, Al Sharpton, who came down, and he said Tuesday night, kill the Jews, two times. I heard him, and he started to lead a charge across the street to Utica.”
    With each passing hour the violence worsened, Jewish leaders began to desperately complain about the lack of protection to the authorities. They said, the rioters were being allowed to rampage unchecked, too little force was being brought to bear, and too few arrests were being made.
    Area Jews felt the police were under orders by the City’s first black mayor to hold back, that the police were not allowed to fight against the Black rioters, who continued to grow bolder in their anti-Semitic attack as they sensed the appeasement.
    The fact is New York City Mayor David Dinkins responded to the riot immediately by deploying 2,000 police officers and making a personal visit to the troubled neighborhood under a hail of rocks and epithets hurled at him by fellow blacks. 

    Dinkins has spoken of his own mishandling of the riots. Admitting he “screwed up Crown Heights”
    “I regret not saying to the police brass sooner whatever you guys are doing is not working” it was then they altered their behavior and they were able to contained the ravaging young blacks who were attacking Jews … I will forever be accused of holding back the police and permitted blacks to attack Jews, however that did not happen it is just inaccurate”
     In all, the street violence against the Crown Heights Jews lasted three days/four nights starting with the evening of the accident.  On Thursday evening, cops finally restored order, although sporadic violence against Jews continued for weeks after the riot was contained.

    Yankel Rosenbaum wasn't the only person murdered by the rioters.
    On September 5th, Italian-American, Anthony Graziosi, was dragged out of his car, brutally beaten and stabbed to death because his full beard and dark clothing caused him to be mistaken for a Hasidic Jew.
    During the funeral of Gavin Cato on August 26th, Al Sharpton gave an anti-Semitic eulogy, which fueled the fires of hatred.
    “The world will tell us he was killed by accident. Yes, it was a social accident. ... It's an accident to allow an apartheid ambulance service in the middle of Crown Heights. ... Talk about how Oppenheimer in South Africa sends diamonds straight to Tel Aviv and deals with the diamond merchants right here in Crown Heights. The issue is not anti-Semitism; the issue is apartheid. ... All we want to say is what Jesus said: If you offend one of these little ones, you got to pay for it. No compromise, no meetings, no kaffe klatsch, no skinnin' and grinnin'. Pay for your deeds."
    Regarding the Mayor's call for peace Sharpton pontificated:
    "They don't want peace, they want quiet."
    Sharpton and the lawyer representing the Cato family counseled them not to cooperate with authorities in the investigation and demanded a special prosecutor be named.

    Sharpton was asked about the violence, he justified it,
    “We must not reprimand our children for outrage, when it is the outrage that was put in them by an oppressive system," he said.
    The first Sabbath after the Funeral Sharpton tried unsuccessfully to kick up tensions again by marching 400 protesters in front of the Lubavitch of Crown Heights shouting “No Justice, No Peace."
    Sharpton called for the arrest of Lifsh, the driver of the station wagon. Even though more than twenty similarly accidental vehicular deaths had occurred in Brooklyn since 1989 without a single arrest several involving local Hasidim run down by blacks.  The agitator’s pressure led Charles Hynes, the Brooklyn district attorney, into convening a grand jury. 

    When the investigation of the accident did not produce a criminal indictment against Yosef Lifsh, Al Sharpton encouraged the Cato family to seek big-bucks damages in a civil suit against Lifsh (who had since fled to Israel for his own safety).
    Sharpton announced that he would personally serve papers on Yosef Lifsh in Israel. He bought tickets and hopped an El-Al flight on the weekend of Yom Kippur. At Ben Gurion Airport, a woman spotted Sharpton hailing a cab and yelled to him, "Go to hell! “I am in hell already," shot back. "I am in Israel."
    The Aftermath 

     Sharpton abandoned the Caribbean people of Crown Heights as soon as the anti-Semitic violence had died down. His entire participation in the violence may have been a calculated effort to usurp Jesse Jackson as the leading spokesman for African-Americans.

    Jackson may have had his “Hymie-town” but Sharpton’s incitement against those Jews who he perceived as having the political power that African Americans deserved, went much further than simply words like Jackson.

    Sadly had Sharpton not exploited the death of Gavin Cato for his own “resume”, what was by all accounts, a disorganized group of ruffians on the first night of the riot, might well have dissipated the morning after the accident. 

    The media portrayed the Crown Heights riot as two-sided promoting the myth that both blacks and Jews were equal in their violence. The violence was a one-sided rampage waged by some of the neighborhood’s 180,000 strong black majority against a Jewish minority of 20,000. 
    Maybe the media continues to sugarcoat the riot because it was unprecedented in American history.  For liberals  it’s impossible to perceive blacks as purveyors of bigotry they are forever in the role of victims of hate.
    The Crown Heights riot occurred just five months after the infamous Rodney King beating,  a disgusting act of police brutality against the African American King which was video-taped and repeated on TV ad nauseum.

     After the King case, who could believe that blacks in America could ever take over the role of racists, but that is what happened in Crown Heights. Even today the deaths of Gavin Cato and Yankel Rosenbaum are viewed as some sort of a" tit for tat." This is a misrepresentation of the facts.
    Cato's death was the result of a horrible accident; on the other hand, Rosenbaum was deliberately stabbed four times by an angry mob. Anthony Graziosi's death has been forgotten perhaps because his death would break some cynical equality of fatality.
    Many in the Jewish community felt Mayor Dinkins was complacent in the violence, holding back the police from protecting the Jewish community, but there has never been evidence offered proving that charge. 

    A more likely explanation for the lack of protection offered to the Hasidic community is a perfect storm of incompetence. An incompetent Police Commissioner Lee Brown was being managed by an incompetent Mayor.

    Nevertheless the pogrom dealt a death blow to Dinkins' mayoral career. Ironically it was the fact that Jews had voted for him in overwhelming numbers that him a narrow victory over Rudy Giuliani in 1989. Those same Jews switched sides, giving Giuliani the win against Dinkins in 1993. 

    To this day, the media refuses to acknowledge that African-Americans can be racists just as much as Caucasians  and Antisemitism is still ignored by the media.

    News networks invite anti-Semitic representatives of CAIR or former CIA agent Michael Scheuer to participate on their programs as experts, but these same “experts” contend that American Jews run the media and the Government. Huffington Post regularly allows Media Matters’ MJ Rosenberg on their front page where he too uses anti-Semitic stereotypes.
    As for Al Sharpton, he went on to lead a second pogrom, this time against a Jewish-owned business in Harlem (where seven people were killed). I suppose it was his experience in leading two anti-Semitic pogroms that gave Sharpton the expertise he needed to be an adviser to the first "post-racial "President, Barack Obama and the latest evening anchor for MSNBC. It has certainly gave him the inspiration to exploit other tragedies such as the Trayvon Martin case in Florida.
     Sharpton's rise to respectability proves how little has been learned from the Crown Heights anti-Jewish violence which took place twenty years ago.
