Self-Defense Is Off the Table—If You Are White

When a white person defends himself from a violent attack, there is a good chance he will be indicted.

Self-defense used to be a universally accepted principle in American jurisprudence until the woke crowd got their hands on it. The laws on the books allowed you to use force in order to protect yourself. Sadly, the existing laws are being ignored in favor of “social justice.” Soros-backed prosecutors are zealously going after anyone who tries to defend himself from assault—if he happens to be white.

Seventeen-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse killed one man and wounded another as they chased and assaulted him during a violent protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Videos filmed at the scene proved it was a case of self-defense. Rittenhouse, wrote Leon Wolf in The Blaze, was “someone who was in legitimate and reasonable fear for their life and trying to survive in a chaotic situation.” Nevertheless, Rittenhouse was arrested and charged with first-degree intentional homicide, which carries a life sentence in Wisconsin. He was ultimately vindicated, but only after his personal life was torn to shreds.

In my new book, The War on Whites: How Hating White People Became the New National Sport, I describe what happened to a white couple in St. Louis when they attempted to defend their lives and their home against a Black Lives Matter mob that threatened to kill them. Mark and Patricia McCloskey pointed weapons at the mob but no shots were fired. Police did not show up to protect the McCloskeys. In spite of a video taken at the scene, the McCloskeys were charged with unlawful use of a weapon, a felony carrying a possible four-year prison sentence. No charges were brought against members of the mob either for trespassing, destruction of private property, or threatening physical harm.

When Jordan Neely, a large black man with a long rap sheet, terrorized a New York City subway car full of frightened passengers, he was taken down in a choke hold by Daniel Penny, a former Marine who happened to be white. Although Neely died as a result, it was clear that Penny acted in defense of his fellow passengers. Instead of receiving a medal for heroism, Penny was arrested and indicted on a charge of manslaughter. This is an example of how the legal system supports black criminality.

The Soros-backed Manhattan District Attorney, Alvin Bragg, has a record of releasing violent felons and charging citizens like Daniel Penny for lawful acts of self-defense. One of the worst cases involved a bodega owner who killed an armed robber when the robber assaulted him. Bragg charged the owner with second-degree murder and locked him up in notorious Rikers Island prison before the case was finally dropped. In another incident, a parking valet shot an armed car thief when the thief pulled a gun. Bragg charged the valet with attempted murder.

When white people are assaulted by blacks, the legal system bends over backwards to coddle the black perpetrators. If there is a confrontation between a white person and a black person, said author Ben Shapiro, the Left deems that the white person must be at fault. Referring to the case of Jordan Neely, Shapiro said, “Neely apparently had a right to threaten people on the subway.” Penny, on the other hand, did not have the right of self-defense.

A very different sort of case occurred in San Bernardino, California, where a 21-year-old black man assaulted a white police officer as she was trying to prevent a violent crime. He wrestled the female officer to the ground, punched her in the face, and seized her firearm. He attempted to shoot her in the face but failed only because the gun jammed.

In what should have been an open-and-shut case for the prosecution, the lawyer for the assailant claimed that his client was acting in self-defense because the initial detention by the officer was illegal. “He could punch her 100 times,” said the lawyer, “and it wouldn’t matter.” The jury agreed, finding the defendant not guilty of attempted murder and other charges. Had the defendant been white and the officer black, the verdict would have been different. The self-defense argument was allowed for this black defendant even though a video proved he had attempted to kill a police officer.

Social justice is totally unjust when the right to self-defense depends on skin color. In our woke society, social justice is interfering with traditional notions of right and wrong. A white person can be denied the right of self-defense. A violent black felon can get away with it. This is the current state of our legal system.

It is a serious question for the next four months. Who do we want answering the phone at 2 A.M.

PolitiCrossing founder Chris Widener makes the case that Harris should invoke the 25th Amendment so we don’t have a doddering fool trying to wake up to save America. Harris with her faculties is better than Joe without them, and it is Obama and his crew making decisions anyway.

AND… He tells us why it doesn’t give Kamala any more chance of beating Donald Trump… Watch below:

Will You Take Action to Assure GOP Victory on November 5?

In less than 17 weeks, the GOP will take back the White House, and hopefully the Senate and House, and begin to restore America. Or, we’ll face a gargantuan nightmare that will all but seal the fate of this nation. Do not be fooled by Joe Biden’s defiance of those calling for him to withdraw. Any Democrat challenger will be a danger to us because the DEMOCRATS WILL CHEAT IN UNPRECEDENTED WAYS.

Time is of the essence. While being informed is wonderful, taking action is paramount. What exactly will you do to ensure that we achieve victory? It is no longer sufficient to be a concerned bystander.

No End to the Left’s Destruction

Every day when you log on to news sites, you are flabbergasted by the degree to which the radical Left continues to impose its civilization destroying policies, programs, and activities on the rest of us. There is no end game for the Left, no bottom, and no limits to their mass insanity.

Most recently, we have learned of a professional couple who was greeted at 6 a.m. by armed FBI agents banging on their door to arrest them for having the temerity of stepping into the Capitol on January 6, for 12 minutes, ushered in by Capitol guards. We have witnessed the unending persecution and prosecution of Donald Trump over non-crimes that have been concocted in unison and are part of an overall strategy emanating from the White House.

We have witnessed corrupt district attorneys, corrupt prosecutors, and a corrupt press. Donald Trump is merely the bellwether. All other Republican politicians will be fair game from here on out, and if we lose the election in November, with little or no recourse. One by one, the maniacal Left will quash dissent in ways that perhaps we currently cannot imagine.

The Left is Maniacal

The logical outcome to having the Left predominate in all areas of society is a totalitarian regime. Don’t discount this scenario. As Leftists ultimately do everywhere, they demand compliance. Thought control is their desired form of servitude. For those who do not comply, execution is not out of the question. Like radical Islam, we’re dealing with a malevolent genie that has escaped bottle, has no intention of ever subsiding, and wants everyone to either totally capitulate, or be imprisoned, deported, or terminated.

There will be no effective way to dismantle the maniacal leftist machine if Joe Biden is re-elected, he continues to be the puppet of Obama and far Leftists, and the border continues to be flooded with illegals — until Democrats have congressional representation that steadfastly insures a permanent majority. At that juncture, they will pack the Supreme Court. They will end the Electoral College. They will ramp up gender dysphoria opportunities wherever they might lie.

They will continue to show poor judgment and ridiculous weakness on the world stage. They will kowtow to China on a wide spectrum of issues. They will embolden our enemies to the point where such enemies are ready to pick apart America. This is not hyperbole and is all too likely.

Nothing here is beyond the bounds of possibility and with each passing week becomes more likely for the distant if not foreseeable future. In a sentence, we simply must win in November. No alternative will suffice.

All of Us

All of which leads to the point that every single person voting Republican needs to decide now, how they will lend support to the cause. In what ways will you participate? How will you volunteer, where, when and for what duration? Will you donate money? Who will you influence to vote GOP?

How will you support your candidates locally, regionally, and nationally? How are you going to impact others? It would not be sufficient to say, “I was busy,” or “I felt we had an overwhelming majority.” This approach is gambling with the future of our nation, the future of our communities, and the future of our families.

If we are to win by an overwhelming majority, let us each assure one another that we did everything we could to make sure that that is the result. To do less is to simply take a child-like approach to what is perhaps the most eventful year since 1776, 1812, 1861, 1941, 1968, and 2001. There will be no palatable tomorrow if we lose in November.
