Over the weekend, incidents of the “knockout game” or “polar bear hunting” – which has resulted in the deaths of four Americans – took center stage in the media. The “knockout game”, you’ll recall, is where Minority Urban Youth (MUYs), typically black, attempt to knock out random victims who are usually white –
– or, at least, this has been the pattern in the past. While the attackers in these cases continue to be predominately black, there has recently been a demographic broadening of victims: an Asian congresswoman, for example, or Jewish persons in New York. It seems that so long as victims were mostly white, the media ignored the story. Now that other minorities are being clocked for no reason, the media has collectively sounded the alarm.
Despite a few minorities being clobbered, victims of the knockout game continue to be overwhelmingly white. An argument could be made that the knockout game is merely a symptom of a growing anti-white bias in society. Of course, to assert this is to invite accusations of racism.
Yet I can see no more blatant a display of racism than Massachusetts College Of Art Professor Noel Ignatiev recently calling upon all white males to commit suicide:
“If you are a white male, you don’t deserve to live. You are a cancer, you’re a disease, white males have never contributed anything positive to the world! They only murder, exploit and oppress non-whites! At least a white woman can have sex with a black man and make a brown baby but what can a white male do? He’s good for nothing. Slavery, genocides against aboriginal peoples and massive land confiscation, the inquisition, the holocaust, white males are all to blame! You maintain your white male privilege only by oppressing, discriminating against and enslaving others!” Professor Noel Ignatiev, a tenured professor at Massachusetts College loudly proclaimed to his class last Monday, his final teaching day before retirement.
Ignatiev, it is worth noting, is ethnically Jewish and politically Marxist. According to his Wikipedia page:
Ignatiev, the son of Jewish immigrants from Russia, was raised in Philadelphia. He attended the University of Pennsylvania but dropped out after three years. Under the name Noel Ignatin, he joined the Communist Party USA in January 1958, but in August left (along with Theodore W. Allen and Harry Haywood) to help form the Provisional Organizing Committee to Reconstitute the Marxist-Leninist Communist Party (POC). He was expelled from the POC in 1966. Later he became involved in the Students for a Democratic Society. When that organization fractured in the late 1960s, Ignatiev became part of the Third-worldist and Maoist New Communist Movement, forming the group Sojourner Truth Organization in 1970. Unlike other groups in the New Communist Movement, the STO and Ignatiev were also heavily influenced by the ideas of Trinidadian writer C.L.R. James. For 20 years, Ignatiev worked in a Chicago steel mill in the manufacturing of farming equipment and electrical components. A Marxist activist, he was involved in strikes by the mostly-African-American laborers of the steel mill. In 1984, he was laid off from the steel mill, approximately a year after an arrest on charges of attacking a strike-breaker’s car with a paint bomb.
American Communist strategy shows time and again that one of their principal tactics for bringing down Capitalism and America is agitating for black-on-white racial crimes. The growing trend of MUYs playing the knockout game is likely an outgrowth of such agitation.
How are whites responding to these attacks? Here is one victim displaying a textbook example of Stockholm Syndrome, calling for the poor, misunderstood “teens” to be “empowered”:
Ms. Connolly might be representative of urban, liberal whites. However, she is not representative of suburban and rural whites who are arming themselves. Moreover, suburban and rural whites aren’t just buying a small handgun to leave in the nightstand; this demographic appears focused on acquiring serious firepower, and the tactical skill to use it decisively – a development that is causing considerable consternation in far-left circles.
Instances of racially-motivated attacks against whites by blacks have been occurring in earnest since Obama – a man with close ties to Marxists – ascended to the Presidency in 2008. Documented examples of the knockout game first appeared in 2009, shortly after Obama took office, and have been steadily growing in number. There is no indication this trend is going to dissipate, and every indication it will grow worse with time.
Update: It turns out the above-linked story at Diversity Times was a satirical piece – though not an unfounded one …
Professor Ignatiev did not retire, and didn’t say those awful things in class. However, according to a fact-checking piece on The Blaze, Ignatiev’s fictional call for white men to commit suicide was based upon previous statements and actions:
Ignatiev, however, is no stranger to controversy.
In the past, the professor has reportedly argued for the abolishment of the white race in an issue of Harvard Magazine. At the time, the magazine’s editor said he was really calling for the abolishment of the “mind-set and attitude that automatically grants privileges to white people.”
In an interview with the New York Times, Ignatiev added that he wants to “abolish the privileges of the white skin.”
“The white race is like a private club based on one huge assumption: that all those who look white are, whatever their complaints or reservations, fundamentally loyal to the race,” he said. “We want to dissolve the club, to explode it.”
Ignatiev is also the co-editor of “Race Traitor,” a journal which says that ”treason to whiteness is loyalty to humanity.”
Sometimes, the best satire is that which sticks closest to the truth.
