The Knockout Game Exposes The Cowardice Of Political Correctness

Maybe Obamacare is the government's version of the knockout game...David Burge Tweet

  • I don't like referring to The Knockout Game as a "game." It's not a game. It's an crime and a vicious assault. It's unprovoked violent attacks against innocent bystanders.
  • In the past, I've written several pieces making the case that political correctness can also be dangerous. For example, in 1930's Germany, it was politically correct to condone violence against Jews. In all Communist countries---then and now---their citizens were (are) required to tow the "party line."
  • I also made the claim that it's more courageous to be politically incorrect. Unfortunately, today we are observing cowardice by a large part of the media that refuses to identify The Knockout Game for what it is---mostly attacks by a group of young black thugs who target whites, Jews or other minorities.
  • One of the only players in the major media that showed some guts in reporting the truth was the New York Post. They recently wrote: "The way the game is played, one of a number of young blacks decides to show that he can knock down some stranger on the streets, preferably with one punch, as they pass by. Often, some other member of the group records the event so that a video of that 'achievement' is put on the Internet to be celebrated."
  • The phenomena is not new. Colin Flaherty, an award-winning reporter and author of "White Girl Bleed A Lot: The Return Of Racial Violence And How The Media Ignore It," has long documented black mob violence.
  • Even with the recent attention some of the media are giving this phenomena (largely in the local media outlets), most still fail to mention the race of the perpetrators responsible for these violent acts against innocent individuals.
  • The other disgrace exhibited by the media is their failure to report the phenomena is not a new one. It's been going on for years. A casual Internet search shows how pervasive this type of violence is across the country. In fact, there are several hundred documented cases of The Knockout Game. In Florida, it's called "Polar Bear Hunting" because of its targeting of white bystanders.

  • Charles Heston once described political correctness as tyranny with manners. Unfortunately, in too many cases, it can lead to violence---it can kill.
  • But one fact is certain with these recent events: The Knockout Game exposes the cowardice of political correctness---the cowardice of the main stream media.
