420,749 black-on-black homicides have occurred in the United States since 1976.
Why don’t these black lives matter?
It appears the predatory left is selective when choosing its objects of compassion.
It cares for the lives of black males who are killed during confrontation with white cops and it perennially reminds us that blacks were lynched in a bygone era.
However, we are not informed that more black-on-black homicides occur in the United States over a four-month period than were lost during entire the 86-year lynching era (1882 to 1968).
Why the bias?
• It’s a matter of the media misdirecting our minds.
Perception is reality, we are told, and when the perception is false, our “reality” is also false.
While believing in UFOs, Bigfoot, and fairies may seem benign and harmless, cult leaders manipulate our behavior by misdirecting our mindset and, consequently, our world view.
What cult leaders do, the media do as well.
• We act out what we believe.
Like charismatic cult leaders, the media understand that we act out what we believe. The media manipulate our behavior by literally changing our minds.
One doesn’t need a degree in psychology to understand this phenomenon. It is obvious.
If you believe your house is on fire, you will respond accordingly; even if your house isn’t actually burning. Likewise, if your house is burning and you are unaware of it, you will not respond.
That is, we don’t respond to reality. Rather, we respond to our perception of reality.
When we observe Hare Krishnas engaged in silly dances or Amish folk clopping along highways in horse-driven buggies, we are witnessing this phenomenon. They are acting out their beliefs; their perceptions of reality.
Cultural Marxism via the media manipulates our behavior by managing our perceptions of reality.
If we perceive there is an epidemic of racist white cops needlessly shooting harmless black males, we will respond accordingly. Likewise, if we are unaware there is an epidemic of black-on-black homicides, we will not respond.
• Examples? There are plenty.
Cultural Marxism uses imagery to appeal to our emotional centers to redirect our perceptions of reality. That’s why we are inundated with white-guilt movies like Selma, The Butler, Lincoln, Red Tails, To Kill A Mockingbird, etc.
A recent case in point was served up by CNN’s Anderson Cooper. Cooper impressed our minds by featuring family members of Walter Scott singing an impromptu spiritual.
Scott, you’ll recall, was the black man shot to death while fleeing a white police officer in South Carolina.
The imagery is powerful.
Another example is a drawing in which Italian artist aleXsandro Palombo took the liberty to redraw Bart Simpson. Simpson is depicted as a black kid being shot dead by a white cop. The image adheres to our minds and, subsequently, alters our perceptions and consequential worldview.
• Why do we believe the media?
Kenn’s Law #14 states, You will never meet a cult member who knows he is a cult member.
Note that cult leaders prefer to create communal compounds where their followers can be deprived of outside perceptions. Consequently, their thought processes are limited to a false reality created by the cult leader because there is no alternative to consider.
Think of the mainstream media as cult compound where viewers are deprived of access to truth. When was the last time you heard Anderson Cooper lament over the epidemic of black-on-black homicides?
Ofttimes we are deceived; not by outright lies, but by intentional omissions of vital information.
We believe the media for same reason people once believed the earth was flat: In the absence of truth, our minds default to available alternate conclusions.
Furthermore, when truth manages to filter past the media censors via venues such as ClashDaily.com, we are mentally conditioned to reject that truth as if it were poison. Any thought or observation that fails to conform to the cultural Marxism mindset it typically tainted as racism, xenophobia, homophobia, etc.
• How do we cure minds infected with the cultural Marxism virus?
The answer is simple: Minds that have been manipulated by misdirection can be deprogrammed. The most effective deprogramming method I have found is to expose those minds to coarse reality.
For example, The Bureau of Justice Statistics, a division of the U.S. Department of Justice, informs us thatmfrom 1976 to 2005 there were 323,653 black-on-black homicides, or about 10,788 per year.
By applying the annual average to the ensuing nine years — 2006-2014 — we estimate there were about 420,749 black-on-black homicides from 1976 to 2014.
This number does not include unsolved homicides that would inflate the actual number.
Those bits of statistical reality lack the emotional punch of a black Bart Simpson or the mourning melodies of a grieving family. They do, however, displace a false narrative with reality.
We deprogram minds by forcing them to make choices. They must choose between the black Bart Simpson scenario or accept government statistics. They must choose between a family grieving over one death or accept hundreds of thousands of homicides. They must choose between an emotional appeal and stark reality; between anecdotes and data.
They must choose between the tragic death of single black American and the tragic deaths of 420,749 black Americans.
• Question the media.
We’ve all heard the mantra “question authority” and we understand the folly of believing everything we read on the Internet, but — oddly — we absorb the musings of Anderson Cooper, CNN, MSNBC, et al, as gospel truth.
When minds infected with the cultural Marxism virus are exposed to the antidote of reality, they will perceive the media as a collective Brian Williams.
They will question the media with queries such as:
Why do these estimated 420,749 black lives not matter to the mainstream media?
Why are the media attempting to convince us that there is an epidemic of white cops shooting innocent black men when, in reality, there are literally hundreds of thousands of black Americans being massacred by other blacks at a stunning rate of about 10,788 per year?
The answers will be obvious: The media are exploiting the deaths of Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Walter Scott, and others to create a false reality in which black males are perennial victims of white cops rather than victims of black crime.
