A Good Summation and the view you’re not hearing anywhere else

  1. Carlson has been reading my comments here, and stealing my links 🙂

  2. lol

  3. You should watch this.

    Read this first person account.

    Then read this piece written by his brother, who is the editor of the Texas A&M newspaper.

    The Austin police are admitting they fucked up. Only because they were caught on tape and ruined the life of a “respectable” black man. The city will be sued, rightly so.

  4. More scared men behaving badly.

    Assaults a little girl and a teenage boy.

  5. Minneapolis police made 44 people unconscious with neck restraints.

  6. This is post is disturbing

    It is also a first class piece of reporting and analysis, clearly and accurately explained.

    Carlson is the best opinion person on that station.

    Yes, you would never see this on any other major station. It would never be permitted.

  7. ahhh a rioter got hurt rioting and then got shot with rubber bullets when they went for help…. ah my heart breaks.

    Daphne I think it’s hysterically funny.

    What is your goal here ? To raise awareness, to vent your outrage, to portray cops as evil ? Really why, is it you think your poking at me ?

    I hurt Allans feelings the other day because I said I don’t care enough to read his comments. I didn’t mean to hurt his feelings though I was just being honest, and I lack tact.

    On the other hand I ignore you because your bile is intentional and wielded as a weapon where Alans bile is just based on his belief system and he’s honest. A quality you lack.

    I will pray for you. You are a tortured soul, may you find peace.

  8. Him and the 6 oclock news are worth watching. Not much else in the weekday linup worth the time.

  9. This is the type of concise commentary at the BBC or Sky or RTE should do when talking about this matter

    But it will never happen

    I am certain that there would be bad guys that would like to get Tucker Carlson fired.

    Again, this commentary is brave and exceptional, bravo.

  10. Agreed

  11. He is an odd guy. Sometimes way off, this time right on the money.

  12. Yes

    And again, when Fox gave him the prime time gig I thought it was a mistake; it most certainly was not

  13. Colorado Springs police behaving badly.

  14. These protests are happening in places major media aren’t reporting, it’s important.

    Anne Helen Peterson is keeping track.

    Everybody is sick and tired of toxic cop culture.

  15. I was just glad to see O’Reily GO but Tucker on the whole is worth the time and for the very reason Mahons states. You really can’t tell what direction he’s going to come from, but it’s always well delivered and verywell thought out.

    He started out as a George Washington University Professor. I wonder what his classes were like.

  16. LA cops beating protesters.

  17. Belfast, Maine

    I’ve been there

  18. They did use tear gas to clear Trump’s church walk.

  19. They should have used bullets, what triggered the clearing of the street was the RIOTERS threw a bottle at the Atty Gen and he then gave the order to clear the street.

    That part of the story seems over looked by you and many others.

  20. Yes, policing can get ugly. There are also bad cops. But the overwhelming majority are good and stand at great risk to themselves literally between good and evil.

  21. Patrick – because it isn’t the real story. And it isn’t the vague “they”.

  22. Wait I just reread your comment. You are suggesting the military should have opened fire?

  23. Someone allegedly threw a bottle, and your response is, “They should have used bullets??”
    Seriously??

  24. LAPD beating protesters.

    As Phantom said on his post, we can tell the difference between rioters, looters and protesters. Cops are beating protesters and pretty much letting looters and rioters go un-policed.

    Seriously??

    They are standing outside the White House and they threw a bottle at the Attorney General.

    Yes they should have opened fire on them. If it had been Eric Holder that was walking in front of the White House I would still say the same thing.

    They were actively trying to physically harm a Cabinet Member.

  26. Just putting aside for a minute you statement that the US military or police force should have shot American citizens, do you have proof – absolute 100%, undeniable proof – that someone in this crowd threw a bottle at the AG, and that this was the catalyst for the crowd being tear-gassed and beaten off the road?

  27. Even if one person threw a bottle at him, which I doubt, the military should have fired on an unarmed crowd? Interesting perspective. Also sociopathic.

  28. Sounds like a Gulf of Tonkin yarn to me

  29. This is exactly the same kind of thing that led to Bloody Sunday

    Would you like to import the Parachute Brigade To assist with the desired massacre of Americans? Or the People’s liberation Army? Or do you want to turn the US military into those types of organizations?

  30. According to the Justice Department official, the attorney general had a bottle thrown at him while visiting the park outside of the White House, and Barr was informed that demonstrators gathered rocks to throw in his direction.

  31. Followed a massacre of civilians.

  32. Lol, so complete bullshit.

  33. An unnamed flunky Who depends on Trump for his job, made up a story

    That’s all this is

  34. A crowd throwing bottles and a stockpile of rocks is not an unarmed mob.

    It is a threat to the safety of all and when you try to do physical harm to people of high office who are surrounded by people with guns you’re asking to get shot.

    Their job is to protect the asset. If you ask me I’m amazed they didn’t open fire.

  35. An unelected Flunky…. good then the next time the Atty General of NY steps outside the capital building it’s cool with you if we throw bottles at him……

    You’re all being stupid.

  36. When somebody of Patrick’s political inclinations is arguing simultaneously for the US armed forces to fire on unarmed civilians, and for the necessity of private citizens bearing arms to prevent government tyranny, you have the ingredients for civil war.

    Or a really messy ideological position, of course.

  37. 😉

  38. He thinks that a circular firing squad is what the founding fathers wanted

    Everybody shooting everybody else to defend themselves

  39. Everybody able to shoot everybody is what keeps anybody from shooting.

    Thats the truth of it, and always has been.

  40. Mutually assured destruction has always been the key to peace even on the personal level.

    You don’t point a gun at someone when they can point one back at you. More guns always leads to less crime, you want the studies.

    These weren’t protestors they were anarchist that purposefully chose to be at the White House for a Confrontation. Getting shot had better have crossed their minds. If not then they are truly stupid.

  41. Pat you are just full of shit

  42. Pat — Remember you wished children of Sinn Féin members to be blown up in car bombs? Similar energy today.

  43. And so ends Patrick’s pretense of supporting free speech. If you engage in speech he doesn’t approve of he supports sending in armed thugs to murder you.

  44. Carlson mentions the video “you wouldn’t see on CNN etc…”. It reminds me of the video a few weeks ago of the woman strangling the dog while threatening to get the cops to kill an innocent black man in New York. Was it ever on Fox News?

  45. The defund the police idea is a useful idea, not the idea itself but because it recalibrates what is a moderate opinion in these discussions. If the right wing idea is to massively over fund the police, to militarise the police etc… and the the left wing idea is to simply not do that then the moderate position becomes to somewhat over fund and militarise the police. By creating a scenario where the left wing position becomes to massively cut the funding of the police then they moderate position shifts to a sensibly funded police force, with massive reductions in the militarisation of it.

  46. Where are the ‘health workers’ who demanded the 6ft gap whenever ordinary people doing normal things got together? It was a hoax.
    Now, the newspaper Wall of Death is becoming the Wall of Floyd but it’s not pink. And the jews have calculated that the ‘silent majority’ is now a minority – enjoy the vaccines

  47. The left-wing idea is to use the police to arrest anybody who dissents from leftist narrative. Arrests for tweets are becoming the new-normal, and don’t dare come into my 2m safe-space

  48. It is simply wrong to say that leaders, and police, are kneeling before the mob. Kneeling has become a symbol of support for the Black Lives Matter movement and when leaders, and some police, engage in kneeling they are doing it in solidarity with that movement. It is kneeling with the “mob”, not kneeling before them. The video he uses as “evidence” is a piece of satirical comedy by a performer called “Smooth Sánchez”. “Smooth Sánchez” has confirmed that he is not a member of BLM, and that the video was a prank video.

  49. “The defund the police idea is a useful idea”

    It is indeed:

    I absolutely think we should abolish the police. They should be replaced with militias. Militias would defend the people. The police do nothing but harass people on the streets for not wearing masks or standing too close together, and then completely refuse to defend the people when the blacks come to burn everything down.

    This country would absolutely be a better place without the police, who do not do anything but harm our people. Everyone at this point knows not to call the cops if a crime is committed against them, because the police will virtually never do anything. They will tell you it’s your problem. They are nothing more than a gang of hired thugs, serving our corrupt elite, and that has never been more obvious than it is as we watch them stand down and refuse to stop these rioters and looters.

    A country where the law is enforced by volunteer militias would not be a country where the blacks run wild, it would not be a country where Antifa are allowed to harass and attack people for supporting right-wing causes. It would be a country where black looters and Antifa who attack people on the streets get shot in the head and it’s up to their families to claim their bodies before they get unceremoniously dumped in a landfill.

  50. I hurt Allans feelings the other day because I said I don’t care enough to read his comments.

    Err no Patrick. As seen from below:

    I don’t read what you post…. I haven’t in years. You my friend are deluded. And that’s Ok, you have the right to be, but no one has to take you seriously, I don’t.

    Allan@Aberdeen, on June 2nd, 2020 at 10:31 PM Said:

    Patrick – nobody here takes anybody seriously. It’s a blogsite where opinions and the bases of these opinions are offered up for discussion, illumination or repudiation – that’s all. Everything at 9.46pm is correct, as usual. When the vaccine for Covid-19 comes out, you can have mine

    On Carlson’s fairly good summation, it must be said that…..

    the overwhelming majority of people do not care about facts or reality and will form their beliefs about issues based on emotions. Emotions are primarily the result of media spectacle.

    So basically, the entire agenda of promoting facts as a response to what is going on in this country is a fool’s errand. It is, in the end, a complete waste of time. Anyone who cares about facts is going to find the facts themselves. The facts are all out there. Tucker pulled the cop shooting stats from WaPo.

    But they’re not looking at the facts. Instead, people across the entire White Western World are promoting this hoax. People on the streets of Amsterdam and Madrid are marching in solidarity with George Floyd and talking about a black genocide – based on absolutely nothing other than media hysteria, the masses of people believe this.

    The fact that retards are running around talking about a “black genocide” proves that democracy has failed. The basic premise of democracy is that the people are rational actors that are capable of coming to logical conclusions about what is going on in the country, and this has been proven to be one of the stupidest and most malicious lies of all time. The people are not capable of figuring out what is going on. They have to be led. And they will be led. If there is no leader, they will be led by the television. Because human beings are social creatures and they are pack animals, primarily. Man is not primarily logical. That is a lie.

  51. You don’t point a gun at someone when they can point one back at you. More guns always leads to less crime, you want the studies.

    Only amongst white people. The stats for Chicago are

    https://chicago.cbslocal.com/tag/weekend-violence/

    https://graphics.suntimes.com/homicides/

    There have been 236 homicides in Chicago in 2020.

    So who are the victims and who are the killers?

    https://www.intellectualtakeout.org/blog/chicago-75-murdered-are-black-71-murderers-are-black/

    Now, from looking at the descriptions, it is certain that most victims were also armed – and that both sides were black.

    Please, do keep us informed.

    Antifa run ‘eye-gouging courses’. I wonder if Petr the Soy has had his beginner’s level course, probably practising on animals

    judging by the number of people who was shot every year in the US, I’m not sure that’s working very well Patrick.

  56. judging by the number of people who was shot every year in the US, I’m not sure that’s working very well Patrick.

    Particularly, in Chicago.

  57. Where was the Attorney General? Did he come out of the White House? If so, then the person who allegedly threw the bottle has amazing eyesight to have spotted him.
    Also, to have got the bottle close enough for AG Barr to feel threatened enough to order the entire crowd to be tear-gassed and dispersed, the individual in question must have one hell of a throw – the Redskins or the Nationals should sign him or her up immediately!
    The video of the woman kneeling is so obviously fake that it’s laughable. The fact that it’s used as a prop in an apparently serious piece of television shows that either a proportion of the American viewing public is incredibly naive and gullible, or that Fox News have absolutely no respect for their viewers’ intelligence with regards to what they broadcast. Or both. Blatant bullshit like this wouldn’t be allowed on the apparently awful BBC, except as a jokey piece at the end of the news.
    This post should be pinned to the front page of ATW for a while. The post where Troll advocated shooting unarmed protestors in front of the President’s residence.

  58. Patrick

    They should have used bullets, what triggered the clearing of the street was the RIOTERS threw a bottle at the Atty Gen and he then gave the order to clear the street.

  59. Patrick.

    Did you actually just say they should have opened fire on unarmed protesters?
    Bloody hell Patrick, that’s bad even by your standards.

  60. Harri
    What exactly are you hoping to achieve here, apart from some low-level race-baiting?
    Why not comment on the post itself? How do you feel about the Attorney General ordering peaceful protestors to be tear-gassed and batoned off the road in order to a) allow Trump to get to a photo op, or b) because someone with a bionic eye and arm (has Steve Austin* been arrested yet?) spotted the AG and threw a bottle at him?
    How do you feel about Troll saying the protestors should have been shot?

    (* I think I’ve figured it out! Steve Austin, the Six Million Dollar Man, with his bionic eye, arm and legs would be powerful enough to spot the AG at that distance, strong enough to throw the bottle the required distance, and fast enough to run away (in slow motion) before he was caught. And who was Austin’s handler? (((Oscar Goldman))) of course! It’s a black op, set up by (((you know who)))! What do you think, Allan?)

  61. Seimi.

    Trump is now a politician, I wouldn’t expect anything less of him, he’s now one of them.

    If he wasn’t a complete self-serving arsehole beforehand, he sure is now.

    How’s that?

    Seimi.

    Do you honestly believe Biden will be any different?

  62. Did you actually just say they should have opened fire on unarmed protesters?

    I believe Churchill said exactly the same thing at one time.

    Open the Maxims up on them, or words to that effect.

    It was almost 100 years ago, and nothing, absolutely nothing has changed.

  63. That’s just your usual, predictable response to a political question, Harri. I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised.
    As for Biden – yes, I do believe he will be totally different. No US president has been as divisive, as narcissistic, as self-centred and as unaware of the needs and concerns of the American people – all of the- as Trump.
    Biden may well be the weak and ineffective president and politician that some are predicting. He may well the racist that some allege. He may well be the slave to Israel that others allege. He may well not even survive four years as president. But he will still be light years ahead of the current incumbent in the White House.

  64. *all of them

  65. Seimi.

    So, the choice is for the Americans.

    Idiot and bumbling oaf #1 Trump

    Or

    Idiot and bumbling oaf #2 Biden.

    It’s not much of a choice…is it?

    This is mighty America, the most powerful country on the planet we are taking about here.

  66. Trump was always, always part of the political system.

    He Bought and sold politicians by means of money, he openly bragged about the access that money gave him

    He was not corrupted by the system, he was part of what made the system Corrupt in the first place

  67. I know, I know – “A kick in the bollocks or…”
    Do you have anything original or constructive to add to the conversation?
    If not, perhaps you should just stick to trolling masterson, or Colm, or whoever it is you’re bothering today, or be Allan@’s lapdog or whatever.

  68. Okay.

    Let’s assume Biden wins in November.

    Will all those bad Cops stop killing black and white perps.

    And, will all those blacks (take Chicago as just one prime example) stop killing other blacks encases every weekend?

    My guess is is, no, they won’t.

    Nothing, absolutely nothing will change.

    The rich will still carry on getting richer, there will still be more George Floyds, blacks in America will keep on killing each other en-masse, Biden will be a fantastic orator, as long as his teleprompter doesn’t go on the blink.

    And the circus will march on…relentlessly.

    Trump, Biden, The Clinton’s, they are not the idiots actually. We are.

  69. or be Allan@’s lapdog or whatever.

    Seimi.

    Stop.

    You are far better than that.

    You have done that one to absolute death mate.

    Try Gammon, or racist…or something. Uh oh, hold on a minute.

    😉

  70. Seimi.

    By the way.

    Are the stats for Chicago incorrect?

    I’ve only watched Tucker Carlson a couple of times. I find US news channels difficult to watch, as it seems that they are only partly interested in reporting the news, and more interested in pushing their own agendas, much of the time by attacking other media outlets. Every one of them seems to do this.
    That said, I agree with Carlson when he dismisses the ‘Genocide’ claim. What is happening in the USA is not genocide of Black people. What happened to the native population was genocide, and perhaps the people claiming a similar action against Blacks should examine the history of the American Indians before making such claims.

    I think that Carlson, who I’m assuming is regarded as a serious voice in news media, shouldspend more time fact-checking before broadcasting. The video of the woman getting on her knees is clearly fake, and for him to present it as serious and real is either extremely naive, or extremely disingenuous.
    I also disagree with his assertion that the trend of kneeling is one of submission, of the losing side. It’s recognised as a sign of solidarity, and shouldn’t be misrepresented as something else.
    I can’t comment on the stats he gave regarding police shootings, as I don’t have any of my own stats to either support or contend his. The one thing I did pick up is that they were all shootings. How different would the picture be if beatings and procedures like the knee on the neck were added? Would there be a big difference, or any difference at all? I don’t know.
    Should perspectives like this be heard? Yes, absolutely, but with the caveat that they are perspectives, opinions only, and with proper, thorough fact-checking done beforehand. The problem I see is that people take them as fact, as PaTroll did here, and his response is that unarmed protestors should have been shot. That is very, very dangerous. If even a tiny percentage of the American people feel as he does – and let’s not forget, he says that millions of them do – the USA could well be on the brink of something much, much worse.

    I hope that answers your questions?

  83. I also disagree with his assertion that the trend of kneeling is one of submission, of the losing side. It’s recognised as a sign of solidarity, and shouldn’t be misrepresented as something else.

    I have continued to think about this, and I do agree with that.

    Except where people try to pressure others into making the gesture.

  84. Except where people try to pressure others into making the gesture.

    Which is what Tucker Carlson is trying to imply with the video of the young White woman. If there was a genuine case of it happening, it should be condemned, but equally, fake videos like this should be condemned as well, when presented as fact.

  85. Solidarity is great, but I must say I don’t like this kneeling thing. Maybe it’s a generational thing.

    “We’ve got to face the fact that some people say you fight fire best with fire, but we say you put fire out best with water. We say you don’t fight racism with racism. We’re gonna fight racism with solidarity.”

  86. “This is the type of concise commentary at the BBC or Sky or RTE should do when talking about this matter”

    Except the BBC, Sky and RTÉ are required by law to not have that sort of thing. In fact only a a week or so ago a BBC journalist did a monologue filled with her opinion (and in doing so kept to either her opinion or established facts – there was no outright lies or misinformation, something Tucker Carlson couldn’t bring himself to do). And there were ructions over it.

  87. Tucker Carlson is an opinionated speaker, does not pretend otherwise.

    His review of police and other deaths appears to be fact based.

    The Euro TV stations are not allowed to give a critical analysis of the nature of US police violence?

    BBC has AFAIK since forever had interviewers and have done tv essays that made the narrator’s view clear. On Hard Talk and other shows.

  89. Speaking of bars opening, almost everything is opening in the Southern Statelet from Monday… but not bars just yet.

  90. NYC restaurants and bars will be open for outdoor dining and grog at end of June.

    Some will not make it that far, financially.

    There is an event in my area to show organized support for restaurants and bars, by buying takeaway.

    Am I a “conspiracy theorist “ to think you are still a proud member of Antifa?

  92. Harri — As you don’t seem to grasp the difference between theories and established facts, we are at an impasse old boy.

  93. The video of the Woman wasn’t fake I saw an interview with her afterward where she said she was scared to death.

    The AG was on Lafayette St when the bottle was thrown, these are not Protestors, they had bottles and rocks and guess what folks if you throw Bottles and Rocks you deserve to be shot.

    I’m not a conspiracy theorist when it comes to you still being a member of the anarchist group known as Antifa.

    A yes or no will do.

    I call bullshit on you and the fake personal lawyer AG and Fake President.

    Barr has lied before, Trump lies ten times before breakfast every day.

    They wanted the protesters cleared so Trump could have a campaign photo op to fool the rubes. No one in the US or world is fooled by this stuff.

    And Derry or Tien An Men style massacres are not on. I am sure that Trump would like to have one, but the answer remains no.

  98. Carlson Tucker’s piece above is a strong and welcome addition to the necessary airing of opinions that should be broadcast around this matter – but it also needs to be born in mind that he does come from a particular political slant on this so his take is not going to be infallible or perfect. His claims about Democrat leaders and politicians positively encouraging and being delighted by the arson, violence and destruction is purely his speculative hostile bias in action and cannot be presented as fact, but yes he makes many good points about the hype and distortion this whole matter has engendered and the undeniable truth that open discussion and dissent from the accepted singular Black Lives Matter narrative is being suppressed.

  99. Some senior Democrats don’t even call riots what they are. Maxine Waters called the Rodney King riots a rebellion, not riots, and I am sure that is what the skank calls these riots.

    And there’s more than her, trust me.

  100. “The video of the Woman wasn’t fake I saw an interview with her afterward where she said she was scared to death.”

    It is fake. It was satirical comedy by a performer called “Smooth Sánchez”. “Smooth Sánchez” has confirmed that he is not a member of Black Lives Matter, and that the video was a prank video.

  101. “It is fake. It was satirical comedy by a performer called “Smooth Sánchez”. “Smooth Sánchez” has confirmed that he is not a member of Black Lives Matter, and that the video was a prank video”

    This is an example of people seeing something and believing it because they want to. It is the same with Patrick’s unwavering belief that the clearing of the protesters in Lafayette park at the same time as Trump’s walk through photo op was purely coincidental and only because they threw bottles first. He believes it simply because a DOJ spokesman said that was the case ! The DOJ spokesman couldn’t possibly be spinning the facts could he ? That would never happen 🙂

  102. No good police or military force starts shooting people because someone ( allegedly ) threw a bottle.

  103. An imaginary bottle that didn’t come within 100 yards of the personal lawyer.

  104. At least some folks in the US won’t be bending the knee, and they shall defend their own homes:

    Meanwhile, here is a bunch of gun-totin’ knee-benders invading a peaceful suburb and actually shooting at people in their own home:

    Chad Loder
    @chadloder
    National Guard marches through a quiet residential neighborhood in #Minneapolis, screaming at citizens to get inside.

    Soldiers stop to point their guns at residents on their balcony.

    They yell “LIGHT THEM UP” as they fire riot control rounds at them.

    And the knee-benders are unpleasant indeed:

    Here’s one for the idiots claiming ‘don’t riot if you don’t want to be hurt by the police etc

    This elderly man was returning a riot helmet he found on the floor, he was not rioting or breaking any laws. He was simply being kind. #BLUEFALL #PoliceBrutality

  105. They yell “LIGHT THEM UP” as they fire riot control rounds at them.

    Innocent residents, Americans.

    The land of the free, home of the brave…my arse.

  106. Trump just said “Today is a great day for him” about George Floyd at today’s press statement.

    Trump, the gift clown that keeps on giving 🙂

  107. Colm.

    Trump is a very rich man.

    I should think everyday is a good day for him?

    Just watched that clip Allan@.

    This question goes out all Americans on ATW.

    Can black folk not afford AR-15s in the States?

  109. Harri

    Trump was saying today is a good day for George Floyd, not himself !

  110. It was a fake video. But keep pushing it as real like the doctored Biden video you put up.

  111. Colm.

    Maybe Trump was talking about future race relations?

    😉

    Or..

    You could always shave it off for a worthwhile cause other than liberal misguided white guilt.

    My wife had all her lovely long locks shaved off last year, she raised over £1400 for McMillan and cancer research. She did have blond hair which reached the top of her arse, I cried more than she did..

  113. Anyone could automatically see that video was faked. Its a pity Tucker Carlson or his researchers didn’t care to fact check it before including it in his otherwise strong piece.

  114. PVR

    “The video of the Woman wasn’t fake I saw an interview with her afterward where she said she was scared to death.”

    From Reuters: “The author of the video, who refers to himself as “Smooth Sánchez” on his social media profiles, has publicly suggested this video was intended as “satire” and “comedy”, clearly implied in tweets (visible here: archive.vn/65YRy , archive.vn/xqq6A , and archive.vn/xeqmL ). In one tweet ( archive.vn/emQtj ) he writes that “I’m The Creator of This Vid” and, “Comedy ….. I Was Trolling” (“trolling” is a popular term defined by Cambridge Dictionary as “the act of leaving an insulting message on the internet in order to annoy someone” ( here ). He confirmed to Reuters that he is not a member of BLM, and he was “just trolling”.

    What is it fake or not fake in your opinion?

  115. Was the woman in on the joke?

  116. From what I have read it appears the woman was not in on the joke but at least one other person kneeling at the same time was as part of the attempt to persuade her. Apparently this was a small part of a 2 hour spoof video he made and it took him 40 minutes before he was able to get someone to do what he was intending.

    I see Ann Coulter re-tweeted is as a genuine BLM action. But as I said earlier, these things just prpve that viral clips on the internet are far more about what people want to think is true than what may actually be true.

  117. I try to avoid politics on the ATW jukebox and anyway this seems more fitting here:

  119. Colm

    But as I said earlier, these things just prpve that viral clips on the internet are far more about what people want to think is true than what may actually be true.

    Absolutely spot-on.

  120. Was the woman in on the joke?

    the interview I saw of the woman she did not think it was joke and was frightened.

  121. “the interview I saw of the woman she did not think it was joke and was frightened.”

    And? That doesn’t change anything about Carlson’s lies.

  122. Carlson took a spoof video and tried to portray it as a news item?

    Massive disingenuousness as well as hugely ethically suspect.

  123. I see the NFL have largely, in their nice PR way of doing so, told Trump to fuck off and die.

  124. Colm,

    Allan’s favourite current track Frank 🙂

    Allan and Harri are probably having a well earned sleep in today. They must have tukerd themselves out with all their postings yesterday.

  125. Been up and about 06.30 Dave.

    Thanks for the thought anyway mate.

    😉

  126. tukerd ? A reference to Mr Carlson ?

  127. Locals are keeping a close eye on the two genius terrorist lawyers

  128. Phantom.

    My heart bleeds for them.

    I see the Shader sistas are really finding out, not only reality, but just how far-left-wing solidarity works.

    $152 raised of $50,000 target

  129. The two lawyers and the lovely Shader sisters are being openly mocked on NYC social media

    I can’t think of any more noble sacrifice than throwing away your non-profit career of helping the poor so that you can incompetently and ineffectively try to light an empty police car on fire.

    If we’re going to sing the praises of molotov cocktail throwers, can we *at least* reserve it for those who aren’t complete buffoons like these two? People who actually put the effort and preparation in.

    no. they are terrorists. Same shit as the shoe bomber. Just incompetent. If you throw an incendiary device in the dark in a moving car there is no guarantee that you will hit your intended target and if you did imagine the collateral damage that would occur if the Police officers shot back and hit a innocent bystander. That would also be on you.

  130. No. they are terrorists. Same shit as the shoe bomber

    What an uterly ridiculous comment.

  131. Black Lives Matter.

    Or not, as the case maybe.

    Q: how many blacks shot and killed in Chigago?

    Let’s take the last seven days as just one example.

    So, do black lives matter in Chicago?

    And, where are the protests?

    An interesting read…

    The Need to Discuss Black-on-Black Crime

    https://www.nationalreview.com/magazine/2019/12/22/the-need-to-discuss-black-on-black-crime/

  132. No. they are terrorists. Same shit as the shoe bomber

    And have about the same amount of intelligence…obviously.

  133. If we are to speak of root causes of the current situation, you need to talk about black crime as a root cause of so many blacks being involved with police or the criminal justice system in the first place

    But it’s hardly being talked about at all. Only the real and imagined wrongs of police and whites and the economic system are being talked about.

    There are plenty of poor whites, blacks, Asians and Latins here who don’t rob or mug and who never would do those things in a million years.

  134. Paranoid, broken America:

    Rightwing vigilantes on armed patrol after fake rumours of antifa threat

    Groups of men patrolling streets in parts of western US
    No evidence of antifa involvement in violence linked to protests

    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/jun/06/rightwing-vigilante-armed-antifa-protests?CMP=Share_iOSApp_Other

    If we are to speak of root causes of the current situation, you need to talk about black crime as a root cause of so many blacks being involved with police or the criminal justice system in the first place

    And then you need to talk about the root causes of crime. Crime exists for many reasons.

  135. And then you need to talk about the root causes of crime. Crime exists for many reasons.

    Can you explain the reasons in Chicago as one example?

    it can’t be lack of businesses, or the lack of social infrastructure..

    Because they have just burnt most that down to the ground.

    https://chicago.suntimes.com/news/2020/6/5/21281013/chicago-looting-business-investment-comeback

    Chicago residents left scrambling for medications and essentials as looted pharmacies, grocery stores remain closed

    https://abc7chicago.com/looted-pharmacies-grocery-stores-remain-closed-while-residents-scramble-for-essentials/6227663/

    Have any of those blacks ever heard of “shitting on your own doorstep”?

  136. Can you explain the reasons in Chicago as one example?

    Surely you can’t expect a bloke sitting on a laptop in his living room thousands of miles away to attempt that H?. Crime exists for many reasons and you don’t need a doctorate in criminology to tell you that.

  137. The late great NYPD police officer and thinker Jack maple, the guy who invented Comstat said

    “ The cause of crime is criminals

    And the more you think about it, the more it is completely true.

  138. Hi Harri & Phantom

    Nice to see you both giving your girlfriends yet another mention on ATW 🙂

  139. Colm.

    Those far-left terrorists need all the help they can get.

  140. I am beginning to feel sorry for those Shady ladies. They must be blushing at the attention and devotion you and Phantom have for them 🙂

  141. “ The cause of crime is criminals “

    And the more you think about it, the more it is completely true.

    The fact that this is a revelation to some frightens me…….

  142. Phantom you should really take the time to watch the Shelby Steele clip I put up. I think you’ll find it enjoyable not inflamatory, but matter of fact.

  143. The fact that this is a revelation to some frightens me…….

    The fact that some believe so much in their right to bear arms that they claim any attempt to remove that right would result in civil war, but also advocates for the shooting of unarmed citizens in order to accommodate a vain idiot’s botched photo opportunity, frightens me.

  144. “The cause of crime is criminals”

    But what causes criminals?

  145. People having sex 😉

  146. //“The cause of crime is criminals“
    And the more you think about it, the more it is completely true.//

    The more you think of it, the more moronic it seems.

    If there is a disproportionate level of reported crime within some specific community, for example the black community, or the poor black community or whatever, then you naturally have to ask yourself why. Possible reasons could be because

    – blacks are for some reason naturally more prone to crime
    – poor people are for some reason more prone to crime and blacks are for whatever reason more likely to be poor
    – poverty alongside wealth leads to more crime
    – blacks feel discriminated and excluded from mainstream society, and such exclusion leads many to commit crime
    – blacks are provoked by the Jews, etc.

    It’s relatively easy to examine each of these and consider it’s plausibility. While I admit that it’s probably even easier to satisfy yourself with a theory like “The cause of crime is criminals“, you have to ask yourself whether that theory really brings you anywhere.

  147. The cause of crime is criminals

    And this guy was supposedly a great thinker?

  148. Wrong…..

    Criminality is due to a lack of belief in God, a lack of morality, and a lack of Proper Parenting.

    Poor people no matter their color are no less good or more bad than the rich or middle class.

    Criminality is taught.
