French Train Heroes Return To US

Read the story about the three American heroes here.

Our Take:

In today’s world, good news on the fight against terrorism is always welcomed. This story of three handsome, young, diverse, active-duty American friends foiling a terrorist attack in another country, followed by receiving international and domestic honors and praise, is Hollywood perfect. The only question left is which studio will win the movie rights and how fast can it get to the theaters.

Pro-Military – MW’s will say things like ‘See how safe the world can be when our well-trained boys are at the ready and vigilant’ and ‘That terrorist nut job wouldn’t have been taking down by a bunch of skinny jean wearing, anti-war hipsters’.

Pro-Big Brother – I know this might be the smallest group of MW’s on the internet but this event does support the idea of international cooperation and monitoring being effective tools to keep the public safe.

Blacks as Victims of Racism – The black (or multi-racial) guy in this story, Anthony Saddler, was going on vacation with two white childhood friends. He also is active-duty, currently enrolled in a 4 year college, and is a brother in a non-black fraternity.  These MW’s have pretty much nothing to work with here.  This young man seems to go against the grain of the miserable, oppressed black man in a society set up to hate and keep him down. It just might be possible for non-racist white people to exist…who knew?

White Supremacist/ Hate – I’ll admit that you do see more diverse friendships on commercials than real life. Visually though, they are always a slap against the idea that different races can’t get along, form close bonds, and actually not have skin color alone define or limit them.  Even worst for these MW’s is the black, patriotic, military hero. After all, the narrative they depend on is the black male draining society of resources, destroying society with crime, and sitting around on a porch blaming the white man for his problems.  This guy would be the husband most of these MW’s would dream for their daughters to marry…well except for the whole ‘black’ thing.

Anti-Gun – It was great that the single nut job got taken down, but what if it had been more than one. And no matter what security seems to be in place, bad people seem to always be able to get weapons on the scene. This incident supports the idea that the citizens on the scene can do more to stop an attack then waiting for the time it takes for law enforcement to arrive. Though a gun wasn’t used by the heroes, these MW’s might see this as a blow to their cause.

 

BLM Movement Warriors Boo Black Mayor For Trying To Make City Safer

Read The Story Here:

Our Take:

Like Baltimore,  D.C. has experienced an upward swing in crime since the birth of the Black Lives Matter movement and the portrayal of the police as the bad and evil victimizer. To make the city safer, the Mayor announced an increase in law enforcement presence in high crime neighborhoods. This mayor is black and is aiming to make the lives of law abiding citizens (mostly black in D.C.) safer. And for this, Black Lives Matter movement warriors boo her and yell ‘More jobs not more jails’.  I think these type of actions are revealing these movement warriors for who they really are. They are interested only in pushing police out of the way so that their illegal enterprises can prosper. Stopping crime means stopping business. They would rather keep black law-abiding people in danger of constant robbery, rape, and murder then celebrate steps to actually protect black lives. Unfortunately, the Mayor had to spend a good chunk of the time appeasing these MW’s by saying she understands and is on their side (hmmm the side of anti-police?).

White Supremacy/ Hate – If this was a white mayor, this would be an easy story for these MWs to pounce on. We, the good white citizens, are being attacked just for trying to bring order to a city. But still they will see arguments in general of blacks preferring crime to order and will run with generalizations and doom and gloom rants as usual.

Republicans – The fact that the democratic mayor was sympathetic to anti-police protesters will make good rant material for these MW’s. They will continue the picture of democrats as not wanting to support the government and the state, favoring the pro-criminal and anarchy nature of the BLM.

EXPECT THESE MOVEMENT WARRIORS TO BE SILENT OR ON THE DEFENSIVE

Black Lives Matter – Its getting harder and harder to explain and defend the actions of their MWs. Not really much to say in the way of racism when a black mayor simply wants to take steps to make black neighborhoods safer.  Many in the middle are starting to wonder just what this movement is about, with extreme MWs no longer just protesting shootings of unarmed black men but the general role and responsibility of police in general.

Black Women Removed From Wine Train Ride For Being Loud – Claim Racism

Read Story Here:

Our take: I’m a few days late to this one but didn’t want it to go by without comment. So, after three requests to reduce their volume levels, these ladies were escorted off the train. Based on their humiliation as reported in the story, they feel they were victims of racism and demanded (and received) an apology from the train operators. Supposedly, all of the ladies were professionals. The ladies were clearly in the wrong for continuing to be disruptive after many attempts to ask them to adjust their behavior. The power of the anti-racism social justice warriors is great within today’s culture so once the ‘racism’ word was used, it is not surprising how quickly the business back-peddled…even providing them with a full refund. Unfortunately, this power has given many in the black community the sense of invincibility, as if they can behave any kind of way they want and NO ONE better complain or else – RACISM. This is sad as it cheapens the real incidences of racism that occur.

However, I think race, class, and culture did play a part in this story in the sense that there are different behavior norms in different situations. In many cultures and backgrounds, having a good time means being loud. In that closed train car setting, the ladies probably couldn’t understand what the problem was and naturally assumed it must be racism. Still, after three requests to be more respectful to other paying customers on the train, their continued loudness showed they were giving the middle finger of entitlement to all around. True justice means if you act a certain way that impacts the happiness of others, you get treated a certain way, no matter what race you are.

EXPECT THESE MOVEMENT WARRIORS TO MAKE STRONG USE OF THIS EVENT IN COMMENTS AND SOCIAL MEDIA

White Supremacy/ Hate – Seeing the early comments on this one and these MWs came out in full force. I love those news stories which seem to give permission for the inner bigot to come out. So you will likely see lots of comments about how black people are always loud and not following the rules of civilized societies and the like. You will have many MWs sharing their tales of grief in movie theaters and restaurants. The truth of the matter is though is that people from lower economic situations are louder in general, no matter race. And it is just more likely that a white person from a middle class background will have an interaction with a black person from a lower class background than the other way around. If you go to a football game or a frat party or country concert you will see that white people can also be loud and hold nothing back. Also, even if you go to a movie theater and one black person is being loud, there will be 50 who aren’t. But once you become an MW you tend to ignore all observations except those which fit your narrative.

Feminists – Women aren’t allowed to be loud but men are. MWs might not be very strong but some might make an argument. Nonetheless, there is no evidence here that these could have been men and still would have been removed.

Blacks As Victims of Racism – The MWs and their media champions have run away with this story. Forget the facts of the situation, it simply fits the narrative too well of discrimination and victimization. Professional black women trying to enjoy themselves ‘kicked off’ the train. According to the MWs in this group, being black alone means there can never be any complaints or expectations of behavior or else.

Tragedy in Virginia – News Reporter and Camera Man Shot and Killed By Disgruntled Ex-Employee

News Story Here

Our take:

This is one of those dream or dread events for Movement Warriors though it’s maybe the most interesting one I’ve come across. It combines so many elements that it might take MWs a but more time to digest before going on their online rampages. First of all you have a black person killing two white people. But the black man is also gay and was a professional before being unemployed, which will damper down the standard narrative of the black street thug engaging in crime as usual. However, the reporter and camera man were targeted both because they were white and for personal reasons related to perceived acts of racism by the nut job. In his manifesto (does any nut job not have a manifesto), he explains that the Charleston shootings were his tipping point. Of note though is the fact that he does not mention any of the recent white cop / black shooting victim news stories. Another interesting detail is that the gun he used was legally purchased, despite having a questionable mental state.

White Supremacists/ Hate – though this has the great black on white crime angle, it does not carry the whole black street thug vibe they often depend on to provoke fear. HOWEVER, this is strong for those elements within this movement supporting the idea of an inevitable race war.

Anti-Gun Advocates – it doesn’t fit the classic narrative of the angry white male, but this was a mass shooting with a gun legally purchased by someone with a questionable mental state and an angry documented work history. This seems to be a great example of the need for stricter gun laws.

EXPECT THESE MOVEMENT WARRIORS TO BE SILENT OR ON THE DEFENSIVE

Black Lives Matter – many might feel this is another crime or violent act which can be tied to the anger outgrowth of this movement. Some in this rank have been meh when the violence was done against white cops but this was just the targeting of white people in general (though personal to the shooter).

LGBT – This might be the first case of an angry LGBT member doing violence. I don’t expect to hear much from these MWs at all as they will probably hope the gay element of this story fades to the back.
