Sucker Punch

 Carlos Rotella at Slate has a good article on  “The art, the poetry, the idiocy of YouTube street fights” – the posting of online fight videos. He reports from the virtual “Land of a thousand asswhippings”.

The fight video is a compelling genre and holds a grim fascination for many. There are some great “stories” in some of these fights: Bullies beaten, loudmouths silenced, assaulted women avenged, one man beating twenty attackers and pimps felled by karate instructors. Unfortunately they are the exception.

The vast majority are simple thuggery, bullying, gangs stomping  outnumbered victims, unwilling schoolboys goaded to fight and drunken street fights. The sheer unfairness of many of them is staggering. Sucker punches, men beating women and as mentioned gangs attacking lone victims. It seems that the most disgusting cowardice brings no shame in some cultures. In my culture, striking a woman was considered an enormity. According to these videos, it is perfectly normal behavior in most places.

Referring to this video, the Slate article notes:

I’m hideously fascinated by the sheer dumb enormity of this infamous sucker-puncher’s belief that landing one of the most cowardly cheap shots in the archive confirms him as a man among men. He actually says, “I’m so cool”—and adds, somewhat anticlimactically, “I’m not the average motherfucker.”

I am also fascinated by this. And outraged. The puncher is the  most contemptible coward yet he is completely unaware of both his cowardice and idiocy. One has to marvel. I think that perhaps notions of chivalry, nobility and fairness are much rarer than I thought.

Two videos  one from the article and one I found as a result of the article – are outstanding. One for the sheer hilarity of the start and the brilliance of the end. the other for sheer horror of what very may very well have been a murder.

Firstly the hilarity…You must watch to the end. From the article:

Take, for example, this 81-second masterpiece. Listen to the crowd’s response when the guy in the red shirt assumes his stance. It’s as if they’re exclaiming “Doofus!” and “Genius!” at the same time. Is Red Shirt a clown? Is he actually good at martial arts? Is he scared stiff and trying to bluff his opponent, or deeply serene and about to wipe the floor with him? The doofus/genius effect persists throughout the fight, which you have to watch to the very last second in order to appreciate its full import. On the one hand, Red Shirt displays competence: He keeps his feet from getting tangled up, stays focused on his foe but also checks for blindside attacks by additional opponents, remains relatively calm when warding off blows, and delivers a decisive shot. On the other hand, his performance takes on a certain awkward quality when the initial You Just Made a Big Mistake moment gives way to an extended sitzkreig that goes on so long the video-maker had to edit some of it out. When he does finally land the big blow, it looks more like a prayerful haymaker than an expert application of the Vibrating Fist of Death.

 

And now the horror….

I will not embed this video because I never want to have this sort brutality expressed through my blog. A gang on Asian kids firstly brutalizes a cowering boy, then the real nastiness begins when they suddenly turn on a girl in the crowd. A single butch attacker begins the furious assault – and then in what looks like some sort of hideous emergent flocking behavior, a group of girls continue the assault with a viciousness that is hard to believe, not to mention watch. The girl is left completely unconscious, possibly dead.

There is debate about what happened and where.  It appears to be a Chinese or Filipino gang somewhere in North America.  The police and FBI have been alerted to its existence.

Here is the video [WARNING: HORRIBLY UPSETING AND BRUTAL]

Murders of Christopher Newsom and Channon Christian

In January of 2007 a young couple, Christopher Newsom and Channon Christian (above) went out on a date in Knoxville, Tennessee. On their way home, they were attacked and abducted. The man, Christopher, was raped.  He was doused in petrol and set on fire. Eventually he was shot. His mutilated body is dumped on a railway line. He was the lucky one.

Channon – the girl – was not only forced to watch the rape and horrific murder of her boyfriend, she endured several days of being beaten, gang raped and sodomized.  After being forced to perform fellatio on of her attackers, they forced her to drink bleach to destroy DNS evidence. They took turns urinating on her, they she was strangled to death and stuffed into a bins where she was eventually found days later by shocked police.

Photos might give you a clue as to why you have probably not heard about this case in the mainstream media and why the national and international press have not gone near it despite its obvious newsworthiness.

That’s right, the victims are white and the perpetrators are black, and that does not fit into the media’s simple narrative structure which holds that whites are the racist oppressors and minorities the blameless sufferers of that oppression.

Even the staggering amount of black-on-white race crime and other cases like these (you think I am exaggerating? Check out The Wichita Massacre. Bet you have not heard of that either) cannot dent the media’s self-censorship on this topic.

This is a crime of almost unbelievable cruelty and viciousness. The question is why was was not reported in the national and international media? Where was the outcry about this truly horrific crime?

CNN and every other network wasted hundreds of hours on the racial hoax at Duke University (white oppressor narrative) and the farce at Jena (white racist narrative) and arch-race baiter Al Sharpton’s gimmicky circling the Justice Department to protest against “Hate Crimes”. They send live teams to cover this posturing and propaganda stunts, yet we hear nothing about the horror of Christopher Newsom and Channon Christian’s rape and murder?

The horrible fact is that it appears to me that a generation of mainstream media reinforcement of the myth of white racism has probably worsened black racism which in turn result in murderous sadistic racial violence against whites. I would sincerely like to be wrong but the media cover-up is a standing joke and the facts of racial violence in both the UK and USA speak for themselves.

Next time you see Al Sharpon on Lee Jaspers or other pseudo-community leader or “race advisor” bleating about racism, just remember that we are labouring under an Orwellian media myth that inverts the truth which is that the vast majority of inter-racial violence in Britain and the USA is black on white.

I dare you to check it for yourself. Go on:

Technoviking

Behold the Techno Viking! Below are still from the infamous Kneecam No. 1 video by Matthias Fritsch featuring the most terrifying raver in history: Techno Viking.

The action takes place in 2000, at Belin’s “Fuckparade” (a response by nasty people to the feel good Love Parade) and is entirely unscripted.

Below is a YouTube version of the video (here is a higher quality .mov version).

Techno Viking enters about 38 seconds in, but the hilarity really starts at 01:30 (or -02:30) . It is almost unbearably funny.

 

You may also enjoy the captioned version.

One in two Serbian citizens overweight

From B92:

One in two Serbian citizens is overweight while a fifth of the population is clinically obese.

An international conference on obesity has begun at the Serbian Science Academy, with the goal of looking at all the ways of countering weight problems in Serbia, an increasing phenomenon.”

This is hard to believe looking at Belgrade’s women, but the response from one of my colleagues was “You have not spent much time in the countryside have you?”.

Prehistoric women had passion for fashion

From the BrisbaneTimes:

“PLOCNIK, Serbia – If the figurines found in an ancient European settlement are any guide, women have been dressing to impress for at least 7,500 years.

Recent excavations at the site – part of the Vinca culture which was Europe’s biggest prehistoric civilisation – point to a metropolis with a great degree of sophistication and a taste for art and fashion, archaeologists say.

In the Neolithic settlement in a valley nestled between rivers, mountains and forests in what is now southern Serbia, men rushed around a smoking furnace melting metal for tools. An ox pulled a load of ore, passing by an art workshop and a group of young women in short skirts.

‘According to the figurines we found, young women were beautifully dressed, like today’s girls in short tops and mini skirts, and wore bracelets around their arms,’ said archaeologist Julka “

So some thing really do never change!

First Kosovo, and then what?

The Boston Globe:

“A unilateral lunge for independence by Kosovo could spur Serbs in Bosnia and Herzogovina – half that country’s population – to follow suit. And Kremlin warnings against the imposition of any Kosovo formula not acceptable to Serbia raises the specter of Russian backing for independence movements in Georgia, Moldova, and even Ukraine. This would be a prescription for armed conflict around the periphery of Europe.

…Some European diplomats also worry about the United Nations carving new countries out of older countries’ provinces. They recognize that separatist reflexes persist in regions such as Catalonia and the Basque country. Even the Flemish and Walloon populations of tiny Belgium may want a nationalist divorce.”

Race, genes, and intelligence

From Slate Magazine

“Last month, James Watson, the legendary biologist, was condemned and forced into retirement after claiming that African intelligence wasn’t ‘the same as ours.’ ‘Racist, vicious and unsupported by science,’ said the Federation of American Scientists. ‘Utterly unsupported by scientific evidence,’ declared the U.S. government’s supervisor of genetic research. The New York Times told readers that when Watson implied ‘that black Africans are less intelligent than whites, he hadn’t a scientific leg to stand on.’

I wish these assurances were true. They aren’t.”
