I have read a few statements about the vicious racial assault on Chrissy Polis, 22, a white so-called transgendered woman / transvestite by Teonna Brown and another black woman on April 18 at a McDonald’s in Rosedale, Baltimore.
Many issues are woven into this obscene event.
First, of course, is the brutality of the assault. Then there is the race aspect, black attackers on a white person; then the sexual orientation of the victim, the matter that no one intervened (it seems all employees were black), the woman who finally did intervene was 55 years old but waited to intervene until she thought the victim was about to die, and, finally, the effort by the police to determine if the assault was a hate crime.
Where does one begin in analyzing this cesspool of behavior?
Here is an opening paragraph in an article by Lauri B. Regan that appeared in Tuesday’s American Thinker Blog. http://www.americanthinker.com/2011/04/the_obamas_silent_in_the_face_1.html
“For the average human being, it was not possible to watch the video of two black women beating the life out of a defenseless white woman at a McDonald’s in Baltimore and not feel complete and total revulsion. Adding to the horror was the knowledge that the black employees — one who only half-heartedly attempted to intervene, one who was filming the barbarism, and perhaps others not seen on the video — did absolutely nothing to save the white woman from her assailants.”
The vicious racist attack needs no further amplification. It is obscene.
The statement by Vicki Thoms, the woman who did attempt to intervene is revealing in its rationalization:
From an article posted on the Baltimore News:
“I think it’s terrible. I think it’s inhumane,” said 55-year-old Vicki Thoms, who tried to break up the assault. “When they started really hurting her, to the point where I thought she was going to die, that’s when I decided someone needed to do something.”
If is preferable, of course, that someone tried to intervene at some point… but Thoms’ rationalizing and waiting does have a detestable quality to it.
These two women attacked a defenseless human being as wild rabid jackals attack a weakened impala. Bloodlust and hate coursed through their bodies to impel an attack on an innocent.
Not much has been written about this attack. No uprisings or revolts by whites have occurred. No counter attacks on blacks or their businesses or their leaders have been staged. No White Panther Party has threatened a boycott or a counter assault. No beheadings occurred.
And nothing from the president. No eloquent oratory on civility or racial harmony; no condemnation of the vicious perpetrators, in sharp contrast with the president’s instantaneous verbal assault on police officers when his black Harvard professor pal, Louis Gates, was arrested.
In his so-called “race speech” the president stated:
“[R]ace is an issue that I believe this nation cannot afford to ignore right now. … And if we walk away now, if we simply retreat into our respective corners, we will never be able to come together and solve challenges like health care, or education, or the need to find good jobs for every American.
What we have already achieved gives us hope – the audacity to hope – for what we can and must achieve tomorrow.”
Well, if you say so!
Then there is the issue of the police investigating whether this was a hate crime. How pathetic! How bureacratic and totally irrelevant. How post modern and post racial / post gender. Could such a viperous act be committed with affection? With indifference? With mild distaste?
Obviously the act was done with hate; but it was the wrong kind of hate. It was committed with a hatred of humanity; a hatred of individual integrity and autonomy and of human rights. Only a diseased mind could think otherwise. But those kinds of hate matter not at all to the modern identity group victim-saturated cultural ethos.
Thus, police officers will engage in a tortured anti human process to determine if these thugs had the appropriate kind of hate that fits into neatly legislatively defined boxes in order to enhance the punishment, in theory, but, alas, accomplish nothng.
Learning of this venomous assault, some questions do invade the mind like a tank division: What would the president have said, what would the so-call mainstream media have said, what would the majority of TV and radio pundits have said if two white women attacked a black gay person at a McDonald’s and that during the assault, several white employees watched and did nothing to intervene?
My guess is there would be riots across the country and the most pointed invective from the president would fill the air like the Alabama twisters.
But not in this situation.
