I came across this article posted on the Book of Face: “Let’s deport the white males.”
The premise is pretty much what you’d expect. The mass shootings in Columbine, Aurora, Charleston, etc., were all done by white males. They are worse than Islamic terrorists. Let’s deport the white males and import Syrians.
Here’s my question, and I mean it honestly, directed to the Liberals on Facebook who posted this article with such glee. Why do you hate so many of your fellow citizens so much?
The author justifies his statement by listing the following mass shootings: Columbine, Aurora Theatre, Sandy Hook, Tucson Massacre, Roseburg Massacre, Charleston, Oak Creek Sikh Temple shooting, San Ysidro McDonalds Massacre, UT Austin Tower shooting.
I used Wikipedia to look up the body count for each one of these shootings and added them up. I came to a grand total of 125 dead and 162 wounded. These figures include the perpetrators of the shootings either as dead or wounded. This list spans from August 1, 1966 with the UT Austin Tower shooting by Charles Whitman to October 1, 2015 wit the Umpqua Community College shooting. That is 49 years and 2 months.
I’ll concede that the above list is not a comprehensive list of shootings by white people, and that 125 killed and 162 wounded is still a tragically high number.
But still. I lived in Chicagoland (not in Chicago proper, but well inside in the Chicago-Joliet-Naperville MSA) in 2012. I was there when the homicide rate in Chicago spiked to over 500. I remember when the weekend shooting stats would come out Monday morning. Memorial day weekend, 2012, grand total was 56 shot, 12 killed, 44 wounded.
I left Chicagoland in early 2015. As of this posting, the total so far is 432 killed, 2,689 wounded. About three-quarters of both the victims and the shooters in Chicago are black, and on average 90% male, and that most of the shootings occur in neighborhoods that are on average 94% black.
Given those numbers, we can reasonably conclude that black males have killed about 300 people and wounded some 1,800 people in Chicago in 2015 alone.
I WOULD NEVER USE THE ABOVE STATISTICS TO EVER TRY AND JUSTIFY DEPORTING ALL THE BLACK MALES IN THE USA. SUCH A CONCLUSION IS MORALLY REPUGNANT.
The author of the Salon piece used a much lower body count, stretched over half a century to justify an astounding level of bigotry and hatred towards white men.
It should go without saying that this article is equally viciously ugly and morally repugnant. Even if it is intended as a joke, it is awful, and makes me wonder why is it that Liberal jokes are always mean spirited affairs about disposing of people they disagree with?
For an ideology that claims to be about tolerance and acceptance, it really seems to be full hate a nastiness.
So one more time, I would like to pose this question, why do you hate so many of your fellow citizens on the bases of their race and gender, that you want to expel them from your country?
