A preview of an article at WND.com
The initial news reports said that nothing much happened in Ft. Lauderdale over the Memorial Day Weekend. A fight or two. A little alcohol-fueled friskiness. A bit of spill-over from the traditional chaos and lawlessness of Black Beach Week over at Miami Beach.
Other than that, not much. So said the local paper. So said the police chief. So said local business boosters.
And that was pretty much it.
Until the people who were there called BULLSHIT!
There was violence. Lots of it. Black mob violence.
And everyone who was there saw it and says so.
The Sun-Sentinel first reported signs of trouble and a “race riot” about a week after it happened — if only to dismiss it as a “rumor.”
And besides, said the chief of police, “If there were a riot on the beach, I think we would have had more people going to jail.”
Repeat the above line 20 times. Let me know if it makes any more sense then.
Then someone named Jilly Tracy — a local entertainment reporter — came out and said she did not expect the situation to ever repeat because “Las Vegas is rapidly becoming the new destination for the Memorial Day gathering of young black professionals.”
At this point in the article, we still had no idea of what exactly would not repeat because the paper did not report what happened in the first place. Other than nothing.
Finally the entertainment reporter broke it down for us. What really happened.
“You have that many young black people together at any one time, it frightens white people.”
Sweet. Black mob violence? No problem.
Scared white people? Big problem.
This is what passes for reporting in sunny Lauderdale.
Anyway, finally the Broward Bulldog got around to talking about what actually did happen. Fort Lauderdale police used tear gas during beach disturbance later downplayed by chief | Broward Bulldog
Here we learned about widespread violence, pepper gas, people trapped in boardwalk businesses, other businesses closing down, hundreds of phone calls to local officials, some video.
So much so that one of the local elected officials had to fess up: ““Everybody wants to downplay it…We were caught by surprise. We haven’t seen things like this for decades.” Thus sayeth Fort Lauderdale Commissioner Dean Trantallis.
The Bulldog reported that several people commented on the original story in the Sun-Sentinel to set them straight:
“Joedavotta” posted on the newspaper’s Web site, “I was there and it was dangerous…About 10-15 police units besieged the place…SWAT arrived. Pepper spray fill[ed] the air. A1A was jammed with traffic … Debris was strewn across the beach.
“VictoriaHoliday” posted on the Web site, “Many, many, many in the…crowd demonstrate[d] classless behavior…They [were] aggressive…and unpleasant…If you tell me the event does not attract thugs – you are lying.”
Curiously, the comments at the Sun-Sentinel’s article were not available on-line.
More from the Bulldog:
“I’ve been inundated,’’ Trantalis told his fellow commissioners. “I’m sure all of you have been inundated with people who live and visit the area who feel extremely threatened.”
City Commissioner Romney Rogers said his secretary visited the beach at 2 p.m. on Memorial Day. She found the crowd “the rowdiest she has ever seen.”
Trantallis called a Town Meeting on it for Thursday Night, June, 27. Let me know how that works out.

These are just some of the hundreds of examples of racial violence and lawlessness in more than 80 cities around the country as documented in my book: White Girl Bleed a Lot: The return of racial violence to America.
Thomas Sowell said : ”Reading Colin Flaherty’s book made painfully clear to me that the magnitude of this problem is greater than I had discovered from my own research. He documents both the race riots and the media and political evasions in dozens of cities.” – National Review.
