NYMag’s “What To Do When They Don’t Want You To Exist” is the kind of rhetoric that gets cops killed

Gavin McInnesArchive

New York Magazine just printed an essay called "What To Do When They Don't Want You To Exist." It's full of strawman arguments about race and crime that contribute to what I call "the Borg of bigotry."


That is, this rhetoric dehumanizes the police, so if you kill one, you can tell yourself you're just destroying a cog in The System and not a real human being.

To that end, let me introduce you to the five police officers who were killed in Dallas...

I just want to thank you to the brave men that put on a uniform each day and serve & protect us.

You have a tough job. I know there must be times when you feel some uncertainty as to just how to respond in a prickly situation. That split second decision could save a life or end a life and you have to make it.

May God Bless You & Protect you for trying.

I have a friend who just retired as a cop . We were discussing the current events over a beer a few days ago . We both agree we don’t know what is going to happen in the future but one of his thoughts were that police unions could soon demand that black dominant areas be policed solely by black policemen.
Statistically almost twice as many whites are shot by police as blacks but if its a white cop shooting a white man it gets little press attention. In recent years there has been a lot of discussion about ’ suicide by cop’ and the desire for some to die that way.
My friend said for years he had to put up with being called racist every time he pulled over a nonwhite for a traffic violation.
He made an interesting point- people have been watching ‘Cops’ on TV for several years now and have seen how many times the culprits lie to try and wiggle out of trouble. Yet somehow when nonwhites speak to the media they are all considered honest in their tale of woe with the police.
( I remember one show where the cops pulled drugs out of one black guys pants and he not only said the drugs weren’t his , the pants weren’t his also – he woke up at a party in the morning without pants and put someone’s pants on by mistake !)
I think the solution is to turn predominant nonwhite areas into police No Go zones and when a nonwhite victim of crime calls 911 , have 911 give them the number to BLM and have them go help them.

The old media has become so extreme and entrenched in that demonizing of the right that it’s impossible not to compare them to the Nazi extremism. We’re seeing for ourselves how that happened. Facebook and Twitter as the new media are also held accountable for those deaths by a large amount of the population. They allow the most disgusting and gory calls to violence against the police and whites to remain up while taking down conservative posts that come nowhere close to incitement to violence.
Those crazy leftists have sprung from their own belief that they’re being compassionate to minorities (of course they aren’t) and they desperately want to see themselves as intellectual and smart. The sooner we get to the actual campaigning in the U.S. the better off we’ll all be. Trump can appeal to the “sounds smart, I agree” white soccer grandma type that holds up the left and carries the extremist nuts along with it. Even they have to see at at some point that ending freedom of speech and killing police officers is wrong. The super psychopaths that the universities have spawned * sent of to work at the MSM and Facebook should end up with some severe criminal charges at some point. The Universities need to be cleaned up. Personally, I’d like to see a return to the fairness in media doctrine for the msm that Reagan wiped out. Even if it’s only for their own good to keep them from being firebombed in response to their antagonizing hatred.

New York Magazine? In Canada we have the tax payer supported CBC, the Toronto Star, The Rabble (online), and other mendacious and odious media who preach the wolf of hatred in the guise of the lamb of peace.
