Police are searching for two suspects after a shooting at a West Philadelphia block party injured ten people, including two children and an 18-month-old baby. It happened shortly before 10:00 p.m. Saturday in the 4100 block of Ogden Street where a group of people were gathered for a block party.
Neighbors were cleaning up when police say two men opened fired from down the block. Detectives believe the shooting stemmed from a fight a week ago and that the shooter and an accomplice waited until it was dark to retaliate.
“They arrived at the corner of 41st and Ogden, they fired the first shot from intersection they then come about 10 yards east and fired a second shot,” said Lt. Johnnie Walker, Philadelphia Police.
The reality is, unfortunately, that this type of crime (murder is murder is murder) simply doesn’t fit the liberal narrative as dictated at the top by the New York Times and Washington Post, and furthered by CNN, MSNBC and most mainstream mass media, to-wit, that the white against black racism is rampant, out-of-control and and widespread among all whites, particularly those of middle class America. True conservatives, including many conservatives of color know this is not true – but that is what the almighty NYT and the silver-pony tail liberal profs of American’s higher education indoctrination centers (colleges and universities) brainwash into our youth. The statistics are widely available from the FBI, but liberals don’t deal with facts. Facts, as John Adams noted, are a stubborn thing. They distract us from engaging in myth fabrication.
Not only does white on black racist crime – real, perceived or alleged – fit the narrative of the liberal agenda, as embodied by the NYT and other mass media outlets, but it is the “news” of which only liberals care about and care to read. Quite frankly, liberals, particularly the younger white liberals who have been fed lies and who don’t have any clue of this country’s history, could care less about black on black crime, no matter how many are killed each day, each week, each month, each year. It’s not their agenda. It’s not hip. It’s not 1960’s enough. And, of course, it’s all the Republican’s fault (everything is the Republican’s fault in their eyes).
Barack Obama was given a golden opportunity as this country’s first President of color. Not only could he have helped bridge racial divides (he did the country and flamed the flames of racism), but he has done nothing to address urban crime, particularly black on black crime. Only now, as a lame duck POTUS ,he finally announces a “Brother’s Keeper” broken. Too little, too late by the worst president in at least the past 100 years.
Failed liberal welfare state policies initiated 50+ years ago by LBJ have created this toxic environment. Only solid conservative principles will remedy it – and even at that, it will take some time. Only when a value system is in place that emphasizes individual responsibility will real change happen.
Don’t let the media not speak on this tragedy either. Nobody is talking to the police. Share this story on social media and add your comments below.
