Oops, Again ...

Remember how last week the New York Times was trying to whip up a new hate crime frenzy with the headline "Iraqi Immigrants in California Town Fear a Hate Crime in a Woman’s Killing?" This was right after the NYT's analysis of how the anti-Semitic murders in Toulouse, France were due to the French being allowed to debate immigration policy.

Well, the dopier sorts of Americans have been ginning up a A Million Hoodies and Hijabs protest to tie together the whole Trayvon / Shaima meme. And, predictably, the fire-breathers in the Islamic World have taken this as another reason to hate Americans. 

Yet, the whole story, with the xenophobic racists leaving a note by the dead body of an Iraqi housewife in El Cajon, sounded implausible from the git-go, and the police were already signaling that the victim probably knew her killer. 

Well, Kristina Davis of the San Diego Union-Tribune has been doing some work and today she reported:
Records Hint Iraqi Woman's Death Not a Hate Crime 
During a search of the home and the couple’s vehicles in the hours after the attack, police found court paperwork to file for divorce in Alawadi’s Ford Explorer. The packet was not filled out, but a form requesting a court fee waiver was filled out in handwriting with Alawadi’s name, address and phone number.

That's hardly conclusive, but it sounds more plausible than the NYT's SPLCized version of the story.

There are patterns that people can notice if they let themselves. And once you let yourself notice the pattern, it's easier to notice more. For example, an awful lot of the hate crimes that make the news turn out to be hoaxes. That doesn't mean there are no such things as hate crimes, just that hate crimes like, say, Matthew Yglesias getting stomped for Walking While White is too boring and depressing to be news. The stuff that becomes big news is, typically, a noose is found in the Diversity Nook at some hyper-liberal college.

One of these days, I'm going to have to write up something on What We Can Learn from Claude Shannon about What Makes the Newspaper.

And there was some other drama in Alawdi family not long ago:
… On Nov. 3, police found [daughter] Fatima with a 21-year-old man after responding to a report of two people possibly having sex in a car, the documents state. Officers called her mother, who came to the location and picked up the girl. As they were driving away, Fatima said, “I love you, mom,” before jumping out of the vehicle onto Mollison Avenue at 35 mph. 
She was taken to a hospital with several injuries, including a possible broken arm. She refused to talk to police at the hospital but reportedly told paramedics and hospital staff that she was being forced to marry her cousin and didn’t want to.

Hey, well, what do you know, cousin marriage ... It's almost as if reality contains partly predictable repeating patterns.

So the anti-White narrative has become so common, that recent immigrants know how to make up a story blaming White people almost immediately?

Here is a video of the daughter talking about her mother's attack. It seems obvious to me that she is lying. She is a very very bad actress.

SPLCized indeed. Their HateWatch blog was quick to publicize this. Though I guess I should give them credit with prefacing "hate crime" with the word "possible". Maybe they have actually learned from past mistakes for once.

Not "too boring and depressing", Steve - rather, an inversion of the only approved who/whom narrative, and therefore a hatefact.

Also, an increasingly inportant reason not to report any black-on-white crime is the terrible danger of The Backlash. Relatively harmless horseplay such as the Christian/Newsom unpleasantness could lead to white folks getting angry if it were properly reported. So it ain't. And if you talk about the fact that it isn't properly reported, well then you're clearly filled with hate anyway.

Apokolypse said...

Steve,

You are misunderstanding. When a noose found on a campus turns out to be fake, it is still a good opportunity to talk about what COULD have been a hate crime. It is also a good opportunity to feel morally superior to other whites

David said...

But what does this have to do with Ellis Island and Jim Crow and Jackie O??

More people are preoccupied today with the special concerns of their grandparents' generation than any people have been in the history of the world since Ancient Egyptian times. The mainstream is stagnant and reeking - no matter how much Snooki and CGI is floated on it.

It's surprising the part about marrying a cousin slipped through. Someone wasn't being vigilant enough to catch it. That will probably be rectified later.

Noose, Hate Symbols Found At UMCP

Police at U. Maryland, College Park are investigating "two incidents of bias and hate," President Wallace Loh said in a Wednesday e-mail to the campus.

Loh said an elevator in an academic building was vandalized with anti-Semitic messages and that a campus facilities supervisor found a noose hanging in a space that was being renovated... police have no suspects.

...

"abhorrent," Loh wrote. "not tolerate hate bias right all community environment feel safe respected included"

Wow, this daughter of the murdered Iraqi mother comes across as lost deep in the valley of uncanny bad acting - she is going thru the gross motions but there is no human connection.

Either she is an ice princess who is totally disconnected from her own emotions and is only able to manufacture a grainy facsimile of human grief or she is a very bad liar.

My impression has been that Arab culture is pretty emotional and direct when it comes to exhibiting grief.

Scott said...

I think hate crime laws are pretty stupid in general but if we're going to have them then we should prosecute these fake hate crimes just as aggressively. You put up a fake noose and the media reports a hate crime then I don't care if you're black. You get charged with a crime and are brought to trial just like if it was a white person who did it. The effect is the exact same. To stir up controversy. The controversy doesn't magically go away when we find it was Shaniqua who put up the noose instead of Bill Bob.

What murder isn't motivated by hate?

Seems to me all murders should be called hate crimes, but they're different kinds of hatred.

There is PERSONAL HATE CRIME, RACIAL HATE CRIME, ETHNIC HATE CRIME, RELIGIOUS HATE CRIME, ECONOMIC HATE CRIME, CULTURAL HATE CRIME, etc.

Even if this was not an ethnic or cultural hate crime, it still could be a personal hate crime.

Otherwise, most murders aren't so bad cuz... they weren't motivated by 'hate'.

And of course SEXUAL HATE CRIME. Blacks seem to commit lots of those.

Ah, Muslim family values. Mom is just a cow who births the kiddies, serves up the felafel, and turns a blind eye to hubbies pedophilia, sanctioned by the Koran. If dad kills her, the whelps think she probably deserved it.

NOTA said...

Just as with the murder case here, if someone's leaving threatening or nasty messages on your door, locker, office, etc., while it's possible they hate you for being black, jewish, gay, etc., it's probably a better bet overall to guess that they hate you personally for their own reasons, and that painting a swastika on your office or beating you up while screaming "die, fag" is just the best way they could think of do something nasty to you.

And the distorting filter of the media is in full view here: Most ways some classless asshole can offend and upset people wirh his idiotic attention-seeking behavior is not visible to most of us, because it doesn't fit a narrative that media companies find useful for whatever reason. Spray paint "slut" or "fat cow" on some girl's locker, you won't make it into the news; spraypaint a swastika or an ethnic slur on her locker, you may make it onto the news. But giving that kind of idiot national media attention is 100% the wrong kind of incentive--ideally, he should get little attention from anyone except the cop that arrests him and the judge that sentences him to pick up trash onthe roadside for the next couple dozen weekends.

Trayvon Martin should be called Martin Luther Prince.

Notice the pattern. The REAL Martin L. King was a foul, aggressive, and sexually degenerate lout, but the media made him into a pure saint and prophet.

We know that Martin L. Prince was a teenage lout posting hateful shit on facebook, but he's been turned into this nice wonderful clean-cut kid, the fantasy 'son of Obama'.

Both blacks have been whitewashed.
If fashion magazines airbrush images of women, mass media whitewashes blacks.

Rev. Right said...

A story rife with vibrant themes of cousin marriage, fear of honor killing, and muslim victimhood.

The 17 year-old Fatima's performance was stunningly bad however, really more like the performance of 15 year old, I'd say. The wad of tissues and sunglasses accompanying the tearless sobbing were a distraction. The family Mercedes and Range Rover in the background were a bit much as well.

First the clumsy Trayvon story falls flat, now this. The media just can't seem to produce effective evil white racist campaigns any more. What are they teaching them in Journalism school these days?

Maybe the ant-Hispanic story they are working on now will be a little better. For the sake of vibrancy, let's hope so.

the US television media had zero interest in the korean shooter in oakland. that's down from their usual 5 seconds of interest, check identity of shooter, drop story, cycle. so things actually ARE changing. a new pattern, however minor, has emerged.

in fact it was barely reported it at all even on the web. it was dropped from headline news on the web in 1 day.

it's amazing to me how EVERYTHING ON EARTH was wiped out of the united states 24 hour news cycle by the trayvon martin story. 1 day before it, the US was actually considering whether to get into a WAR with either syria or iran. and they'd been talking about it for months.

remember how serious all those people were about stopping the killing in syria? thousands of people are being killed every month! we have to do something. we have to get into this war!

how about the prime minister of israel coming to the US and dressing down the president of the united states, then giving an impassioned, fist pounding speech to american politicians that would have made nikita khrushchev proud. frothing at the mouth, DEMANDING that european americans go kill iranians, go fight and die for jews.

funny how that all instantly became one million times less important than a single random teenager in florida. 1 day before, john mccaain was on the television circuit, giving interviews to CNN literally about how the US airforce should approach destroying syria's air defenses, with that usual gleam in his eye he gets when he thinks about killing people.

the liberal control over the tone and narrative and intellectual milieu of the US is astounding.

Concerning the 'French' gunman.

A few weeks back, whilst the story was hot news, the French media were pretty insistant that the gunman was from a rogue renegade cell of French ex-paratroopers steeped in racialist politics.
By way of 'proof' they kept banging on that the gunman had a 'tattoo on his face' and some right-winger paratrooper sported a self-same tattoo.
I knew the second I heard this, that this was utter, utter bullshit. I've never been in the military, but I do know that virtually every army in the world worthy of the name is very, very strict on the matter of physical appearance - they are fanatical about 'smart' appearance, hair length, facial hair, grooming etc to the extent that regualr inspections are part of army routine. Anyone with a facial tattoo would simply never be allowed to join in the first place. If it was done during service, he'd be kicked out forthwith.

DanJ said...

If I may repeat my suggestion for approaching the issue of violent hate crime:

Any violent crime against another person needs to be dealt with and the perpetrator punished.

In addition, a violent crime perpetrated on a person of another race is also a crime against civil society. This is because stable racial relations are important to everyone living in a multiracial society, and violence between races threatens that stability more than anything else.

Therefore I propose that any violent offence perpetrated against a person of another race would carry an extra 30% on top of any sentence.

No need to try and look into the heart of the perpetrator, to find out what particular brand of hatred inspired him most. You harm another person, you get punished. You harm the stability of civil society as well, you get punished a little more. Simple as that.

This would also help to actually prevent crime, as the added sentence would be clear in the mind of any would-be offender, and thus have a deterring effect.

I do confess that for myself, living in a Scandinavian hamlet, the matter is quite academic. Still, the suggestion above is in earnest, and if I´m wrong, then how?

I think false accusations should carry whatever penalty it would impart were it true and it stuck. Similarly, I agree with you, "fake" "hate crimes" should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law, with no consideration for the supposedly "benign" (anti-White racist) motivations of the perpetrator.

But I'm glad they don't, since that would impart the illusion of legitimacy.

Yes, again. But also again, no outrage among white patriots. We should be marching outside NY Times. If Ny Times routinely defamed blacks this way, blacks would riot. If the media defamed Jews like this--that is if media were controlled by gentiles--, Jews would express outrage.

But, we sit around and do nothing. And since the media will not be punished for defaming whites, they'll do it again and again.
Things only changed for blacks when they began to stand up, protest, and march for their pride and rights.
Unless we show our outrage--loudly and angrily--to the controllers of media, nothing will change.

"For three decades the rising cost of attending American colleges has far outpaced inflation. As this higher education bubble continues to inflate, a university degree, which used to be a ticket into the middle class, is increasingly coming to resemble a ticket to decades of debt. And what are students, whose loan debt now exceeds $1 trillion, getting in exchange for a lifetime of financial servitude? According to Michael Barone, an educational experience that’s increasingly light on hard sciences and heavy on diversity specialists."

During and after. In the 1990's, I was hit in the face by two different white men on two separate occasions for being an 'n-lover'. Then again, I was slapped in the face and had my shoulder dislocated by three different black people on three separate occasions simply b/c they were drunk and belligerent and I, being a skinny white woman in their proximity, was an easy target*.
