After scores of reports by WND about the problem of black-mob violence in the U.S. and a lethal practice of attacking random whites and Jews called “the Knockout Game,” Fox News has launched a full-frontal assault on the shocking phenomenon its own analysts say is intentionally suppressed by national news media.
At least three of the top-rated cable network’s prime-time broadcasts focused on the issue Tuesday night, with the common conclusion that it’s a racist crime trend of black individuals pummeling white victims.
“It’s savagery. It’s very difficult to watch those tapes,” former CBS News correspondent Bernard Goldberg told Bill O’Reilly on “The O’Reilly Factor.”
Black mobs routinely terrorize cities across the country, but the media and government are silent. Read the detailed account of rampant racial crime – and get links to videos providing the proof – in “White Girl Bleed A Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It.”
“The reason most of the people watching us tonight are probably shocked by these videos and don’t know anything about them … is because they’re getting precious little attention – no attention that we could find in the New York Times and the Washington Post or the network evening newscasts. And I think there’s a reason for this, and it’s not a journalistic reason.”
"Just let's imagine that what we're seeing here is white kids attacking black people," Goldberg continued, "that in cities like St. Louis and Washington and Milwaukee and Hoboken, N.J., and Syracuse, N.Y., and other cities, young white kids got together and said, 'Let's start this game. We'll call it the Knockout.' And they go around and some black guy is coming home from work and out of the blue, they just hit him in the face as hard as they can and he goes down. And then their idiotic white friends giggle about it like a bunch of hyenas, and then they post it on the Internet. That would obviously be a national news story because it's orchestrated racial violence. But this isn't."
Goldberg told O'Reilly it was a "white liberal paternalistic decision" for most media to ignore and hide the issue.
"The white liberals in the media at places that aren't covering this are saying, 'You know what? We don't want to give any ammo to those white racist conservatives out there (because they equate conservatism with racism anyway), so let's just make believe this isn't happening.' How despicable. How disgraceful to make believe something that is spread from one city to another isn't a legitimate news story. ...
"Most black kids don't do this, but a disproportionate number are either doing that, or are walking into stores and hauling entire racks of clothing out onto the street. This is like 'Lord of the Flies.' This is crazy stuff and the black establishment, the civil-rights establishment, has been predictably silent on this."
O'Reilly tried to explain the violence by blacks against whites by saying blacks are "sold a bill of good by the civil-rights people that ... 'because you're unhappy, it's the whites doing it to you,' and so they're whacking whites. But with the Internet and the notoriety, this thing could really get out of control."
Goldberg flayed black leaders for their absence on the matter, especially after their media omnipresence with the case of Trayvon Martin, the black teenager shot and killed by George Zimmerman during a scuffle in Sanford, Fla.
"You had [Jesse] Jackson, you had [Al] Sharpton, you had sanctimonious Tavis Smiley all going on television ... painting a fairy-tale picture about how young black males are being hunted down by white people. It was absurd, but they went on doing that," said Goldberg. "And on this [black-on-white violence], they say nothing because – this is important – because it speaks to their failure as black leaders. They don't know what to do about this."
Meanwhile on "Hannity," former NYPD detective Bo Dietl blasted media suppression of the trend, as well as how police agencies have handled the cases.
"The liberal news media doesn't want to say what it is. It's gangs of black youths attacking whites," Dietl told host Sean Hannity.
"It's a race-based thing. It's the black youths against the white individual. Not even just a man. It's against defenseless women and defenseless people and they hit 'em in the face and they try to knock 'em out. People have been killed. My problem is, they gotta take this crime, and they gotta categorize it the way it's supposed to be categorized. It's black-on-white crime. That's racist."
Also appearing on the program was noted criminal defense attorney Remy Spencer who agreed the Knockout Game was severely underreported.
"I think people in today's society are too politically correct and afraid to talk about violence from black people on white people," Spencer said. "But if you reverse it, look at the George Zimmerman trial. That got national attention, not just because a young man died, but because of the race issue. I think media outlets are afraid of reporting this kind of crime."
Spencer explained there was no guesswork or speculation about the racial angle, as the black assailants themselves are self-publicizing their mayhem online.
"They're posting these things on Facebook, on Twitter and on YouTube," she said. "In one that I reviewed before coming on your show tonight, one of the black young men who did this, his caption was that "White Girl Bleed a Lot.' There has been a book published with that title talking about these Knockout Games. So we know that the evidence is there. It's up to law enforcement to prosecute them for these serious crimes."
Not to be left out, Greta Van Susteren, host of "On the Record," lashed into those taking part in the Knockout Game, stating, "This is no game. It is a mean, dangerous and deadly crime."
In a personal commentary, Van Susteren said Americans have to address this problem as soon as possible:
"No one wants to get near the topic of race, but we also can't run from this one. People are getting hurt, they're getting murdered. And even those who live in these communities where this is happening, they have a right to be safe, and they don't have to live in fear of having their children hurt or even poisoned by ugly peer pressure, right?
"This game has to be condemned, and in order for the condemnation to have any impact whatsoever, it has to come from important role models to these young teens. I beg of Rev. Jesse Jackson, Rev. Al Sharpton and even President Obama to step up right now and speak out. Your silence will speak volumes, but your voice could make a big difference. Don't wait. Be leaders. They need you. We need you."
