Now let us remember the Big Scandal of 2012 that never happened.
There folks at Breitbart got their hands on a video tape that some said was so explosive it would end the election the day it was released.
The video showed a young Barack Obama introducing a Harvard Law professor named Derrick Bell.
Bell’s contribution to the culture was an obscure theory called Critical Race Theory, that said white racism was everywhere and it was permanent and it was a central organizing feature for black people.
Nasty stuff, so some thought.
Turns out, not many cared: Half of the people already knew about CRT. And the other half thought it was so stupid, so dangerous, that is could simply not be true.
Eight years later, it is part of the fabric of our culture, with the latest example coming from Madison Wisconsin.
The same heavily armed, big-talking fellas who marched into Stone Mountain,Georgia a month ago showed up in Louisville over the weekend.
This time to protest how Louisville cops killed a black woman for no reason what so EVAH!
Before the protest began, one of these weekend warriors accidentally shot himself and two of his comrades … D’OH!
That did not deter the leader of this 200-fella paramilitary outfit from telling city leaders they had one month to arrest those cops for murder. Or he and his sharpshooters would return to ‘burn this bitch down.’
And lots of other bad business from around the country.
So how many stories have we done where people say ‘that is just the craziest thing I ever heard.?’
Often, I bet.
Here’s the craziest of all: A reporter from NPR said she could not figure out what people say Antifa and Black Lives Matter are so violent and terroristic, because all they ever do is get in a fist fight once in a white.
”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.
From #1 Best Selling Author John Stryker Meyer:
"Colin Flaherty was the reporter’s reporter -- especially on tough stories. And he was recognized for it with more than 50 journalism awards from around the country.
"Now he has written a book about the toughest story of all: Racial violence."
"Flaherty has the goods: This is an important and penetrating book about a big problem. Read it. Pass it around. Send it to a local talk show host or, better still, a reporter."
"Lord knows they need it."
White Girl Bleed a Lot ”has gone viral.”
Los Angeles Times
“A favorite of conservative voices.”
"Flaherty digs up some great examples of officials denying or covering up black violence.
My favorite example was a school superintendent in Philadelphia who circulated "a pamphlet on how not to antagonize black students" to Asian students while the local papers were busying explaining that the violence had "no racial component." Right."
“Brilliant. Could not put it down.”
“Colin Flaherty has become Public Enemy No.1 to the leftist media because of his research on black culture of violence.”
It is official: “Colin Flaherty is a great American. A wonderful book.”
Bretibart.com: “Prescient. Ahead of the News. Garnering attention and sparking important discussions.”
”At least author Colin Flaherty is tackling this issue (or racial violence) in his new book, White Girl Bleed a Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore it.“
“A determined reporter, Colin Flaherty, broke ranks to document these rampages in a book titled, White Girl Bleed A Lot”
World Net Daily
"Uh - oh… Now you’ve done it Mr. Flaherty. You’ve spoken the (gasp) truth!"
Fellowship of the Mind:
"Get your copy of the book and spread the word. This tsunami of black racial violence is domestic terrorism. Burying our heads in the sand and ignoring this reality will only put ourselves and the lives of our loved ones in danger." "I refuse to be intimidated and terrorized. Join me!"
“In White Girl Bleed A Lot, Colin Flaherty bravely goes where the major media dare not follow. In short, he tells the truth about America’s otherwise unspoken epidemic of black on non-black crime.” “What makes this otherwise grim saga so readable is Flaherty’s magical sense of humor. Among contemporary authors only Flaherty’s fellow alchemist Mark Steyn has a comparable ability to transform dread into gold.”
NPR — Morning Edition.
“In conservative media, Colin Flaherty has catalogued the Knockout Game.”
“Colin Flaherty is at the epicenter of the Knockout Game.”
Columnist of Year, Society of Professional Journalists
"This is a challenging book. An interesting and powerful and ultimately persuasive book by a great American writer not afraid to look at one of the most thought about but unspoken features of American life."
