White Man Charged With Hate Crime For 'Knockout Game'-Style Attack, Wingnuts Furious
The 'knockout game' is over. OK, it was probably never even a real thing in the sense that it was hard to see how it was any different from getting "snuck" by "some idiot" which has been going on "since forever." Never mind that. Pretend it was real, and that it was a big deal. Now be relieved, because it's not cool anymore. White people are doing it now. The knockout game is now pretty much the Macarena.
Meet Conrad Allen Barrett, the Kenny G of the knockout game. He allegedly attacked a 79-year-old black man in Texas:
A man has been charged with a federal hate crime in connection with what authorities say was a racially motivated "knockout" assault against an elderly black man, the U.S. Justice Department said Thursday[...]
The suspect made a video of the attack November 24, the complaint said. In the video, he allegedly commented that "the plan is to see if I were to hit a black person, would this be nationally televised?"
He then allegedly "hit the man with such force that the man immediately fell to the ground. Barrett then laughed and said 'knockout,' as he ran to his vehicle and fled."
The victim suffered two jaw fractures and was hospitalized for several days, the complaint said.
Well that sounds horrible, even allowing for the possibility that Barrett is mentally ill, according to his lawyer. But do you know what's really horrible, says Breitbart's Open Sewer of Ginned-Up Nothing?
After months of silence regarding the black-on-white violence common to the "knockout" game in states like New York and New Jersey and cities like Chicago and DC, federal authorities have charged a white man with a hate crime for targeting a black victim in the "knockout" game.
Months of silence regarding black-on-white violence! Gosh darn this Obama, when will he use his words to stop black people from attacking white people, like George W. Bush did? Remember W's bi-weekly calls for black people to stop attacking white people for fun? Meanwhile this president hasn't acknowledged violence in the black community since June:
Now, this isn't to say that the African American community is naïve about the fact that African American young men are disproportionately involved in the criminal justice system; that they’re disproportionately both victims and perpetrators of violence. It’s not to make excuses for that fact -- although black folks do interpret the reasons for that in a historical context.
Naturally the comments on the Breitbart article are priceless, in the sense that they have not been priced for sale. But this Free Republic commenter takes the cake, smashes it on the ground, and pisses on it. And the pee is blood, and the blood is acid:
Sorry we confused the issue, Responsibility2nd, but thanks to your comment we are now aware that it is literally impossible for a white man to hit a black man and call it "the knockout game," even in such cases where that is precisely what happened, like for example in the article you commented on.
Terrible Ones, you could learn a lot from Responsibility2nd. But you won't. You'll offer the usual fridge magnet poetry of STAND HIS GROUND SKITTLES ICED TEA. And it will be exquisite.
