• Loudest black voices in U.S. preach “dependency” & “victimization”
By Victor Thorn
Despite an initial blackout in the press, news of a real-life Hannibal Lecter abortion clinic in Philadelphia shocked Americans. Due to the truly abhorrent practices conducted inside this slaughterhouse, AMERICAN FREE PRESS will refrain from providing the gory details.
Instead, the grisly trial of abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell forced social analysts to conclude that such a cesspool would never be allowed to operate for 17 unregulated years in white suburban neighborhoods, especially with the full knowledge of Planned Parenthood, politicians, and state health agencies.
More troublesome, it appears that Gosnell’s house of horrors functions more as a rule than an exception in inner cities. During an April 26 interview, Ann Scheidler of the Pro-Life Action League told AMERICAN FREE PRESS, “Last year at a Chicago Planned Parenthood clinic, a 24-year-old black woman died during a late-term abortion because attendants waited two hours to call an ambulance. Afterward, there was no investigation and no outrage among residents. Everyone simply tried to distance themselves from it.”
As attorney Donald McClarey, president of a crisis pregnancy center, noted in an April 16 article, “Poor black women are treated like cattle.”
Indeed, while black females comprise only 6% of the United States population, they constitute 36% of all abortions. Sadly, Gosnell-style barbarism exists in many ghetto locales around the country. In Delaware, five patients have been rushed from a Planned Parenthood clinic this year alone.
Making matters worse, hypocrisy and neglect can be found on both sides of the political aisle. In Pennsylvania, since Gosnell opened his doors in 1979, five GOP governors—supposedly the pro-life party—and two Democratic administrations all turned a blind-eye to his barbarism.
Why is the black community so accepting of such inhumane atrocities within their midst? As black columnist Charles Ellison wrote on April 19, “One can only imagine the vein-popping outrage if a Gosnell-like clinic was found further out beyond Philadelphia’s city limits.”
Why is the ‘Hood’ So Much More Different Than the Rest of America?
Considering atrocities such as Kermit Gosnell’s back-alley extermination clinic, why has much of America’s inner city devolved into little more than open-air concrete jungles ruled by ghetto Darwinism? Those unable or unwilling to escape can expect a future of broken families, multi-generational welfare dependence, drug-trafficking thugs, constant police supervision, or sentencing inside the prison-industrial complex.
Much of the blame for this situation can be directed at “ghetto pimp” politicians such as Jesse Jackson, Reverend Al Sharpton, career-minded community organizers like Barack Obama, or the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and Congressional Black Congress. Rather than teaching self-reliance and the benefits of honest employment, these victimization peddlers have become fabulously wealthy by extinguishing all hope inside these realms of urban apartheid.
To get further insights, on April 26 AFP spoke with one of the Internet’s top-rated bloggers. As a mainstream figure touting multiple appearances on primetime shows such as Chris Matthews’ Hardball, this man protects his alter-identity by writing under the pseudonym Angry White Dude (AWD).
When asked why many ghettos are so vastly different than the rest of America, AWD replied, “Inner cities today are in chaos. They’re disaster zones where, as one black teacher told me, the kids act more like domestic street terrorists. There’s no empathy, kindness or decency. Nothing is sacred or pure. Young men have no problem walking up to someone and shooting them in the head. The only comparison I can make would be to La Raza or Mexican drug gangs. They hold no value whatsoever for human life.”
AWD next turned his attention to a primary source of this problem. “What we have in the ghettos is a victimization mentality. If whites completely went away tomorrow, life still wouldn’t get any better for these people. Take Detroit for example: it’s 88% black . . . a black utopia. But half the high school graduates are illiterate. The only ones that can help blacks are blacks themselves. But they refuse to take responsibility. Even when someone like Bill Cosby offers valid criticisms, he’s called an Uncle Tom by black leaders.”
On this note, AWD cited one of these well-known race pimps. “Reverend Al Sharpton is a professional racist. It’s his gig. He doesn’t live in the ghettos, and he won’t demand that black kids act like humans. I don’t know about you, but I expect people to act like human beings. If they refuse to, then the only way to maintain and protect society is by incarcerating them.”
Rather than merely pointing a finger, AFP requested suggestions from AWD about how to improve these forsaken blights on the cultural landscape. “The law of consequences doesn’t recognize skin color,” he began. “If you do stupid things, it leads to stupid results. The black community needs a real leader that will say: don’t drop-out of school, don’t get pregnant at 13, and don’t act like a rapper.”
He also provided some other constructive advice. “Disingenuous white liberals have created a welfare system for blacks that has sapped their pride, stolen their respectability, and destroyed their families. If they really wanted to help these people, they’d offer positive messages about taking responsibility for their own lives. Making more babies so you can collect more welfare is a system for disaster.”
Indentured Servants of Wall Street & the Welfare State
During a March 26 address at the National Press Club, Black Entertainment Television founder Bob Johnson told attendees, “This nation would never tolerate white unemployment at 14 or 15%.” Yet in many cities young black male unemployment now surpasses the 40-50 percentile mark, whereas overall black unemployment has been double that of whites ever since Martin Luther King led his March on Washington in 1963. In fact, no demographic has fared worse under Obamanomics than blacks.
Still, after 96% of blacks voted for Obama in 2008, that figure only dropped three percentage points in the 2012 election. As a reflection of this quandary, one illustrator drew a cartoon of Obama smugly asking, “Poverty? Joblessness? No matter. Where else are they gonna go?”
The point is clear. The Democratic Party has so monopolized the black vote for decades that they’ve been completely forsaken as inconsequential. Frustrated by the hollow promises of hope and change, on December 5, 2012, Detroit councilwoman JoAnn Watson offered an insight into the mindset of those who feel betrayed. “Obama should bring home the bacon,” Watson complained. “Our people in an overwhelming way supported the reelection of this president, and there ought to be a quid pro quo.” In other words, now they want more “free stuff.”
But instead of gainful employment that provides an escape from the slums, the title of black author Star Parker’s 2003 book says it all: Uncle Sam’s Plantation: How Big Government Enslaves America’s Poor. With billions devoted annually to various social programs, Parker asserted that inner city blacks have become literal slaves. “Thirty-five years of Great Society social engineering have forced the disadvantaged to live under the control of the federal government.”
Lashing out even more vehemently, Parker described how taxpayers and those crippled by the welfare state suffer under this broken philosophy. “Uncle Sam has developed a sophisticated poverty plantation, operated by a federal government, overseen by bureaucrats, protected by media elite, and financed by the taxpayers. The only difference between this plantation and the slave plantations of the antebellum South is perception.”
As a final mockery, on January 28, financial analyst Max Keiser revealed who else profits from this feeding frenzy of dependency. “JP Morgan is the largest processor of food stamp benefits in the United States. [They have] contracted to provide food stamp debit cards in 26 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. JP Morgan is paid for each case that it handles, so that means that the more Americans that go on food stamps, the more profits JP Morgan makes.”
Life in the War Zone: Live by the Gun, Die by the Gun
• “The [homicide] offending rate for blacks was almost 8 times higher than the rate for whites.”
With cutthroat gangsta rap stars serving as their role models, it’s no surprise that inner city black males represent over 50% of all violent crime in America. According to a November 2011 Department of Justice report, “The [homicide] offending rate for blacks was almost 8 times higher than the rate for whites.”
Provocative author Ann Coulter framed it in another context. “If you compare white populations, we have the same murder rate as Belgium. So, perhaps it’s not a gun problem, it’s a demographic problem.”
Coulter is correct in her assertion. From 2000-2008, Belgium’s average murder rate stood at 2.2 per 100,000, whereas “whites only” murder in America during this same time-frame was 2.6 per 100,000.
Placing this phenomenon in even starker terms, Erick Erickson, editor-in-chief of a conservative blog named Red State, noted on January 9: “The profile of the typical murderer with a gun is a black male in a city under the age of 25.” Erickson added, “Between 1980 and 2008, young adult black males had the highest homicide offending rate compared to offenders in other racial and sex categories.”
Inexplicably, Barack Obama has waged a vendetta against not only law-abiding citizens exercising their Second Amendment rights (i.e., “those clinging to their guns and Bibles”), but also assault weapons instead of handguns. In 2011, U.S. murders committed with rifles totaled 323, while those with handguns equaled 6,220. Also, intensive background checks won’t stop gang-bangers from purchasing Saturday night specials [i.e., cheap handguns] on the black market.
If Obama genuinely wanted to decrease gun violence, he could look to a January 15 article by freelance speechwriter Stephanie Slade as a starting point. Slade wrote, “Most of the nonsuicide gun deaths in this country happen in densely populated, lower-income urban environments like New Orleans, Detroit, and Washington, D.C. Here, gangs and poverty are the proximate causes of the violence, not a lack of access to counseling.” Regrettably, Slade forgot to mention the worst culprit of all, Obama’s hometown of Chicago, which recorded more homicides than any American metropolitan area last year as drug and gang-wars continue to rage unabated.
