In our latest example of racial violence, we gain go to Brooklyn, where black youths have a new game, “knock out the Jew.” CBS 2 Has more…
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The NYPD is looking into a series of attacks on Jews in Brooklyn. At least one attack was caught on surveillance tape.
Some of the assaults may be part of a disturbing game, CBS 2’s John Slattery reported on Tuesday.
Police have yet to connect all the incidents, but released surveillance video that shows one group attacking a Jewish man. The video shows from a few different angles the victim, a man in a hooded jacket, getting punched.
One man who didn’t want to be identified told Slattery his 12-year-old son was attacked in the same way.
“It’s clearly anti-Semitism,” the man said.
Wasn’t it Jesse Jackson that called NY, “hymie-town?” You can always rely on the racism industry to keep stoking the fires of racial violence!

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been writing about tactics used to silence dissent, punish accusers, and generally terrorize people. The goals of those tactics, of course, is to obtain the silence of their opponents. And why silence others? In the case of #FreeKate, as in certain political ideologies, the harassment is meant to prevent the spread of factual information. There have been so many lies emanating from the #FreeKate front, that they have to attack anyone who exposes the truth of the case. This has taken the form of “digging up dirt” on the mother of the victim, the investigating officer, and other citizens that have discussed truthful information on the case. Trolls appear on Twitter to insult and distract from the truth. Rather than discussing the truth, they resort to personal attacks. The goal is to move the discussion from facts, to the persons discussing the facts. By putting the truth teller on the defensive, they seek to disarm their opponents, and eventually silence them.
The serial bully is often able to bewitch an emotionally needy colleague into supporting them; this person then becomes the bully’s spokesperson and advocate. How people can be so easily and repeatedly taken in by the bully’s glib charm, Jekyll and Hyde nature, and constant lying is a mystery. Psychopaths are especially adept at conning people in this manner.
Antisocial Personality Disorder (APD) The serial bully exhibits behaviours similar to or congruent with the diagnostic criteria for Antisocial Personality Disorder. Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD)
The serial bully exhibits behaviours similar to or congruent with the diagnostic criteria for Narcissistic Personality Disorder.
Paranoid Personality Disorder (PPD)
The serial bully exhibits behaviours similar to or congruent with the diagnostic criteria for Paranoid Personality Disorder.
Borderline Personality Disorder. Some visitors to Bully OnLine have suggested that the bullies in their lives exhibit characteristics of Borderline Personality Disorder.
Personality disorders are a group of mental health conditions in which a person has a long-term pattern of behaviors, emotions, and thoughts that is very different from his or her culture’s expectations.
James and Laurie Smith wouldn’t give up. They were out to destroy my daughter, they feel like my daughter “made” their daughter gay. They are bigoted, religious [zealots] that see being gay as a sin and wrong, and they blame my daughter. Of course I see it 100% different. I don’t see or label these girls as gay. They are teenagers in high school experimenting with their sexuality, all teens do it in one form or another. They are teens, its healthy and normal. And even if their daughter is gay, who cares, she is still their daughter.
Unfortunately by the letter of the law, this girl has NO voice. Her parents can play the “victims” and ruin my daughters life. We have written letters through our attorneys trying to appeal to these people as parents, talk through it and come to some agreement or understanding but James and Laurie Smith refuse. These people’s delusional stand, their hate and bigotry is tearing our daughter apart.
OK, as you can see, the #FreeKate crowd, from the family to the supporters, have engaged in bully tactics. Threatening to turn people over to lawyers for telling the truth, the use of insults, tracking down their personal information, bushiness, and employers, and such, are all bully behaviors. But, they have switched gears. They are still bullies, but are now playing the victim role. Here are some more excerpts to explain…
The serial bully is an adult on the outside but a child on the inside; he or she is like a child who has never grown up. One suspects that the bully is emotionally retarded and has a level of emotional development equivalent to a five-year-old, or less.
The bully wants to enjoy the benefits of living in the adult world, but is unable and unwilling to accept the responsibilities that go with enjoying the benefits of the adult world. In short, the bully has never learnt to accept responsibility for their behaviour.
Bullies avoid accepting of responsibility using denial, counterattack and feigning victimhood
When called to account for the way they have chosen to behave, the bully instinctively exhibits this recognisable behavioural response:
a) Denial: the bully denies everything. Variations include Trivialization (“This is so trivial it’s not worth talking about…”) and the Fresh Start tactic (“I don’t know why you’re so intent on dwelling on the past” and “Look, what’s past is past, I’ll overlook your behaviour and we’ll start afresh”) – this is an abdication of responsibility by the bully and an attempt to divert and distract attention by using false conciliation.
Imagine if this line of defence were available to all criminals (“Look I know I’ve just murdered 12 people but that’s all in the past, we can’t change the past, let’s put it behind us, concentrate on the future so we can all get on with our lives” – this would do wonders for prison overcrowding).
When the Hunt’s supporters take to social media to say that the behavior of Kaitlyn hunt is ‘common,” or that the case was brought due to the Christianity of the victim’s parents, you see how this goes.
b) Retaliation: the bully counterattacks. The bully quickly and seamlessly follows the denial with an aggressive counter-attack of counter-criticism or counter-allegation, often based on distortion or fabrication. Lying, deception, duplicity, hypocrisy and blame are the hallmarks of this stage.
The purpose is to avoid answering the question and thus avoid accepting responsibility for their behaviour. Often the target is tempted – or coerced – into giving another long explanation to prove the bully’s allegation false; by the time the explanation is complete, everybody has forgotten the original question.
Both a) and b) are delivered with aggression in the guise of assertiveness; in fact there is no assertiveness (which is about recognizing and respecting the rights of oneself and others) at all. Note that explanation – of the original question – is conspicuous by its absence.
I think we saw plenty of that above. No one in #FreeKate is willing to take responsibility, or place it where it belongs. Instead, they attack everyone else-especially those that state the actual facts of the case. And, when you look at some of the Twitter debates on the #FreeKate hash tag, you’ll make the connection with what the supporters there do.
Here is the most interesting section…
c) Feigning victimhood: in the unlikely event of denial and counter-attack being insufficient, the bully feigns victimhood or feigns persecution by manipulating people through their emotions, especially guilt. This commonly takes the form of bursting into tears, which most people cannot handle.
Variations include indulgent self-pity, feigning indignation, pretending to be “devastated”, claiming they’re the one being bullied or harassed, claiming to be “deeply offended”, melodrama, martyrdom (“If it wasn’t for me…”) and a poor-me drama (“You don’t know how hard it is for me … blah blah blah …” and “I’m the one who always has to…”, “You think you’re having a hard time …”, “I’m the one being bullied…”).
Other tactics include manipulating people’s perceptions to portray themselves as the injured party and the target as the villain of the piece. Or presenting as a false victim. Sometimes the bully will suddenly claim to be suffering “stress” and go off on long-term sick leave, although no-one can quite establish why. Alleged ill-health can also be a useful vehicle for gaining attention and sympathy.
Let’s take a look at more from #FreeKate…
So then, what do you think? Do the people supporting #FreeKate match the definition of the bully, including, and especially, the playing of the victim role? I’ll leave that to you. I have dozens more screenshots that I could have used, but I tried to keep the post from being a small book.
I find it interesting that quoting these people is declared to be an attack. For example, Rachael Carson Zerbe has posted information in a public forum (Twitter.) It’s the equivalent of going in the middle of the street, and speaking loudly. Anyone on the planet can see these posts, but when you quote her, she will accuse you of “cyberstalking.” I imagine that she will at least claim to report me to the police again, but then again, that too, is a bully tactic, used while playing the victim role! This is is described above, but Robert Stacey McCain is dealing with a similar, yet far more persistent and infinitely crazier person…
What the hell is this? Is it “defamation” to quote Bill Schmalfeldt? Or is it “defamation” merely to describe Bill Schmalfeldt’s behavior? And notice, again: Bill is obsessively searching for his own name on Twitter and then jumping into other people’s conversations.
I would strongly encourage you to read the whole post. Let’s be honest, Bill Schmalfeldt makes Rachael Carson Zerbe look like Mother Theresa, but the tactics are the same. He engages in lie after lie-attack after attack, and if someone has the unmitigated nerve to quote him, he instantly takes the victim role. Then, he uses that victim status as a justification to engage in even more attacks. For him, it’s retaliation. In reality, it is simply a twisted justification to continue his bullying tactics. It is a cyclical and predicable behavior.
There is a danger in dealing with bullying, in that the victims will try to turn the tables on a bully, and give them, “a taste of their own medicine.” I have to stress that this is never a solution. I have not, nor will I, target a person in a way that jeopardizes their safety. Even when I quoted Kelley Hunt Smith when she told the victim to “delete everything,” I redacted her the email address and phone number from the quote-even though it was included in the court documents. I have never “doxed” another human being, or attempted to contact a person’s employer. I have never called the subject of any of my posts, nor have I harassed or threatened them by any means. I have never tried to ruin a person’s career, post pictures of their homes, or gave out names of his or her family members. I know other people do that-I have documented when those tactics were used in other situations, and I condemn it categorically.
I debate or post, even if it’s a sarcastic rant, from the standpoint of the truth. In the case of #FreeKate, we have the truth. I go by the facts, as they are available. I give opinions, and state them as such. I will quote others that speak in open forums, and if I believe myself to be correct, I will criticize and pick apart their comments, just as others have the right to do with anything I write. There is a difference between the freedom of speech, and bullying or stalking, so I will go on the side of free speech. When one uses the truth, it is unnecessary to use anything else.
I refuse to be bullied, and I will not engage in it myself. The purpose of these posts on bullying are to point out how people use these tactics in order to silence others. If the tactics can be identified, they can be countered, Both R.S McCain and myself have offered that the use of social media to expose bullying can reduce it’s effectiveness. Sunlight is always the best disinfectant, and when we shine that on #FreeKate, their tactics lose their power.
If we look at the current state of race relations in this country, we see some disturbing developments. Many of these end up being related to the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case. Let’s take a look at a few, going back over a year…
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Arthur Batchelor, 37, Tarell Secrest, 36, and Jason Hill, 35, were taken into custody on Tuesday for allegedly killing 34-year-old Zachary ‘Zach’ Gamble. Another suspect, 38-year-old Sean Hall, of Atlanta, was arrested on Monday.
Hall is also accused of violating his probation stemming from a DUI conviction in 2009, according to the Marietta Daily Journal.

All four suspects have been charged with felony murder, aggravated assault and aggravated battery. They are being held without bail in the Cobb County Adult Detention Center, police say.
I could go on and on. Simple searches show an abundance of results.
What does this tell us? It shows a pattern of racial violence, and at least some of it has been “inspired by the Trayvon Martin case. Remember how the MSM mad a local self defence case a national story? Remember how the media used pictures of both Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman to make Zimmerman look bad? Remember how NBC edited the 911 call to make Zimmerman look like a racist? How Zimmerman been unarmed, and Trayvon Martin beat him to death, there would have been no major story. It would have been just another night in America. But, since liberals made this a story, it is national, and the resulting threats of violence are real.
Let’s be honest: The George Zimmerman trial is “news” because it’s what TV producers have decided is news. However, if you watch too much TV news, your brain has probably atrophied to the stage where you can’t make distinctions about what is more important:
A. This trial in Sanford, Florida, involving people you never met and never heard of until you saw it on the TV news; or B. Something that might actually matter to you.
The shooting of Trayvon Martin was just local news, until a left-wing group decided this case could help them demonize the so-called “Stand Your Ground” law in Florida which, however, isn’t really relevant to the case (go figure). Then the Usual Suspects of racial ax-grinding (Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, et al.) got involved and President Obama’s political advisers decided he should get involved, too. So there was a press conference in which a reporter asked a pre-approved question, to which President Obama gave a scripted answer.
The warmest day of the year so far brings hundreds of mischievous teens to Michigan Avenue… [But] Police are calling it ‘mob action’.
CBS 2 is learning about multiple incidents in at least four different locations along the Magnificent Mile and in the Gold Coast, yielding a slew of arrests.
Things got pretty bad, very quickly with many innocent shoppers and tourists caught in the middle of a very chaotic situation… Hundreds of teens littered Michigan Avenue and State Street near Chicago… Things started to go bad around 6:00 p.m. Saturday, with teens purposely bumping into people, and causing fights among themselves.
… “You had a group of teens, close to maybe 500. They assaulted a Chicago police officer that was on a mounted on a horse and all of a sudden they assaulted a citizen walking the streets, just a normal citizen shopping and enjoying the weather,” said [an eyewitness].
Later that night, a man was attacked around 10:45 p.m. while walking near Chicago and Dearborn. Sources tell us he was jumped and punched in the face by a group of teens. He was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
In a separate incident, a group of woman say they were attacked by a mob of girls on the CTA Red Line. The women reported a robbery once they got off the train at the State and Monroe station. Eleven females were arrested—10 juveniles and one adult—and charged with battery. Two of the teens were charged with strong- armed robbery.
According to commenters at Chicago police blog Second City Cop, not only isn’t national media covering the story, even the local media isn’t telling the whole story:
TOURISTS BEWARE: You are not getting the whole story. I was coming home from work at 7:30. The savages were randomly attacking people. Go to Woodfield if you want to shop. Chicago is not safe.
You’d think such vicious racially motivated hate crimes would receive wide-spread national media attention, but they don’t. As a rule, reporters and prosecutors ignore the racist motivations of black-on-white mob attacks. In news articles like this one the thugs are invariably described only by their age — “kids” or “teenagers” — while any mention of their race is studiously omitted, as if it had nothing to do with the crimes.
This is the result of liberalism. Their policies create and maintain poverty. Their racism targets minorities and causes increased poverty for them, which they promptly blame on others via class warfare. Then, when violence does break out,good people are left unarmed and unable to defend themselves. Then, the MSM covers it all up, so the rest of the country is none the wiser. We have major problems, and they are eventually going to erupt into even more widespread violence. And the useful idiots that voted for the liberals will suffer accordingly, many good people will be hurt as well.
When you leave the left to their own devices, they’ll most often show you their true thoughts and intentions. This could not be more true recently in Michigan, where it was seen that union thugs displayed the violence and intelligence that has given them their “thug” designation Of course, racism has deep roots in both the Democratic party, as well as unions, so it isn’t a surprise that racial slurs flew when a black businessman dared provide a service to Americans for Prosperity.
Clint is a beloved local figure, his hot dog stand across from the Michigan state capitol being a sort of institution, a landmark. “This is not a guy who’s about politics,” Lee explained. “He’s about hot dogs.”
Americans for Prosperity hired Clint to serve hot dogs at their tent on the capitol grounds, where AFP officials were presenting the pro-freedom side of the right-to-work argument. And when the union goons decided to assault the AFP tent, Clint became a target.
Good Lord. Of course, they have no sense of shame, but are they also completely lacking a sense of irony? I mean, the Left has spent nearly four years building their “Tea Party is racist” meme, and the AFL-CIO brutes — who were nearly all white, as Stranahan reports and video verifies — decide they’ll just waste all that liberal media propaganda in order to terrorize a guy whose only “crime” is serving hot dogs?
The Benghazi story continues to take sickening turns, as we find out today that CIA Operators repeatedly asked to intervene, but were repeatedly denied. FOX News has more…
Fox News has learned from sources who were on the ground in Benghazi that an urgent request from the CIA annex for military back-up during the attack on the U.S. consulate and subsequent attack several hours later on the annex itself was denied by the CIA chain of command — who also told the CIA operators twice to “stand down” rather than help the ambassador’s team when shots were heard at approximately 9:40 p.m. in Benghazi on Sept. 11.
Former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods was part of a small team who was at the CIA annex about a mile from the U.S. consulate where Ambassador Chris Stevens and his team came under attack. When he and others heard the shots fired, they informed their higher-ups at the annex to tell them what they were hearing and requested permission to go to the consulate and help out. They were told to “stand down,” according to sources familiar with the exchange. Soon after, they were again told to “stand down.”
Kindly check out the rest of the article, as there is a great deal more information.
The long and short of it is this; there were CIA operatives were near the consulate. They repeatedly asked for assistance, and assets were nearby. And, at each step of the process, they were denied. They might have been able to save lives, or even stop the attack, but they were actively prevented from doing so.
Is it just me, or has this story went from lying to hide incompetence, and it is now lying to hide intentionally getting people killed?
Over the last several years, I have been fighting my own brand of war against those people who are the enemies of freedom and liberty. My style of fighting is to write about freedom and liberty; to discuss and expand on the ideas found in our founding documents; and attempt to apply to modern day policies the principles of protection of life, support of liberty, and protection of property. And those who oppose me have also been fighting me.
But unlike my style of warfare, the thugs who oppose me rely on intimidation, threats, attempts to damage my property, and efforts to silence me. And I am just the sort of target that these thugs like- although elected officials and big-time bloggers are good targets too, they are able to fight back and could become martyrs to the cause, but me and those who support the elected officials and bigger bloggers and private citizens who are attacked are one removed from the dispute and smaller so make much better targets for the thugs and cowards out there who disagree with our views and policy positions.
Although there is no way to compare what I have faced to the attacks on Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Sarah Palin, and others, being a secondary target does not mean that I haven’t been attacked too.
In recent years, the worst attacks that I have suffered have come after I have supported and defended those who were attacked by liberal thugs. My defense of the Koch brothers from the President Barack Obama’s orchestrated attacks on themcaused left-wing fascists to respond by attempting to shut down my blog. The vile creeps even went so far to write a letter to the employer of one of my loyal readers- they thought they were targeting me- as they attempted to respond to differences in views by causing the loss of employment and income. They didn’t like the fact that I defended private citizens from slanderous attacks by the President of our nation, and responded to it by engaging in slanderous and personal attacks on me.
Another round of attacks came on me after I defended the tea party on several blogs and forums, responding with reasoning and calls for a more adult discussion to those who called those who supported tea party views and ideas various names. Those who disagreed with my views- those on the left who call themselves progressives or liberals but in reality are simply fascists- responded by filling up the comment sections of all of my posts with their various rants and foul language, and because I didn’t want my blog to be a forum for their hate I was forced to disable the comment section on my blog.
One of the most clever attacks on me came after I defended in blogs and in forums and on social media Rocky Raczkowski, who was tea-party favorite and GOP nominee in 2010 for Michigan’s 9th District. Someone emailed me pretending to agree with my comments and asked questions about the advertisers on my blog, and the next day my advertisers dropped me and confiscated my money due to what they said was fraud. I’m not going to say exactly what happened (I don’t want to give the thugs ammunition), but the result was a loss of income for me and the loss of a good sum of money (Google never responded to my inquiries or pleas for reconsideration).
These attacks on me are not isolated to just me. Over at Legal Insurrection, Will has a story up that rings very close to my own experiences, called Welcome to total political war:
…I’m not talking about the attempt to get advertisers to stop advertising on Rush Limbaugh’s show, or Fox News, although that would be bad enough. I’m talking about the second-tier of the warfare, the attempt to intimidate those removed by one or more degrees of separation from the dispute, and to use them as tools against the target.
We have seen it a number of times in the past couple of years.
When King & Spalding agreed to represent the U.S. House of Representative after Obama changed positions and announced that theJustice Department no longer would defend DOMA in court, there were not only protests against King & Spalding, but threats to picket and protest clients of the firm who had nothing to do with the dispute. The threat that clients of the firm who were completely unconnected to the dispute would be harrasseed was enough to cause the firm to withdraw the representation.
Similarly, when the new Rhode Island Attorney General announced that he would cooperate with the federal goverment in the enforcement of federal immigration laws, protesters not only invaded the lobby of his offices, they picketed his house and confronted neighbors about the issue. Dragging his neighbors into a dispute which had nothing to do with them did not cause the RI AG to back down, although not for lack of trying.
Which brings me to the present dispute with Rush Limbaugh, and radio show host Kim Komando, who has a very well-known computer talk show. What did or does Komando have to do with the dispute? Nothing, except that one or more of the advertisers targeted by the anti-Limbaugh groups also advertises on Komando’s show. Komando received a flood of e-mails demanding that she drop the advertisers….
…What is happening goes beyond Obama’s call for people to argue with their neighbors and get in their faces. It goes far beyond Bill Clinton’spolitics of personal destruction directed at accusers, and beyond name-calling by right wing pundits.
This total war, in which no one is allowed to be non-political and neighbors and clients become mere pressure points, is a dangerous development.
This is indeed total war, and that realization has only slowly dawned on me over the years that I have been writing on this blog. It is scary, but not surprising- most of humanity today lives in a state of fear and oppression from tyrants, and for most of human history humanity has lived in fear and oppression from tyrants.
It is in the worst nature of people to attempt to oppress others and use them as slaves- use their labor and intelligence and skills and drive to provide them with things they did not earn- food, clothing, shelter, medicine, drugs, influence, power, money, loans, etc. The worst nature of people is to react to arguments and reasoning with intimidation, threats, and personal attacks. And the worst nature of people is to take that which they did not earn, suppress and lessen the freedom and liberty of others, and if possible choke the very life out of those who oppose them.
It’s a total war and it’s getting worse as our opponents grow more bold and get closer to winning the war. I can only hope that in 2012, you and your friends and family recognize that we’re at war and take the proper steps, because the last time the American people pretended that they weren’t at war, we saw the error of that thinking on September 11.
Again, they fail, fortunately. This does, however, go to show the lengths that they are willing to go to create an atrocity. They are designed to disrupt and destabilize our Republic. They hope to create a crisis sufficient to end human freedom. We have to be aware of that, and let others know. Eventually, they will get someone killed, and then, they will use it as an excuse to escalate.
