Some Mass Murders Are More Equal Than Others

This op-ed from a week ago is even more relevant now. And the disparity isn’t just between shootings and other forms of mass murder. Look at the difference in media treatment of the Gilroy attack and the Brooklyn shooting that took place just one day before.

The limited attention [given to the Japanese arson attack] here in the United States cannot be explained away on account of distance. Compare the coverage with that of the mosque shootings last March in Christchurch, New Zealand, a location even farther from our shores. U.S. newspapers and wire services featured the Christchurch massacre five times as much as the Kyoto mass murder.

Sure, there are some differences between the two tragedies in term of victim count and motive. Thursday’s attack involved a personal agenda rather than a political one — never raising the dreadful specter of terrorism. The Kyoto massacre may not have been an act of terror, but the young victims undoubtedly experienced tremendous terror as the flames swelled around them and smoke invaded their lungs.

Mass shootings remain one of the most widely discussed topics here in the United States. By comparison, we just don’t seem to be as unnerved by mass killings carried out by other methods, unless of course they hint of terrorism, be it of foreign or domestic origin.

– James Alan Fox in Kyoto Animation arson killings didn’t get much attention because we couldn’t demonize guns

    there isn’t much of an agenda to be promoted by amplifying the arson murders in Japan, unless you seek to ban the sale of gasoline. On the other hand we constantly hear about Gun Violence, Gun Crimes, Illegal Guns, etc without getting to root of the actions.
    The people wielding the guns and the issues surrounding them. That would be offensive to many and it’s a complicated problem that can’t be summed up in a sound bite. Also, there isnt a way to ban the people doing the deeds.

    Well, there is but we lack the stomach for it. The problem is we don’t address what drives people to do these acts. That’s not solvable in most cases.

    It’s all about control, not lives. Democrats, liberals and progressives are well aware that their agenda can be advanced several orders of magnitude faster in a totally gun free environment than in a nation with armed aware citizens. Most of the sheeple are too ignorant to understand that liberal utopias are always two-caste systems, a prosperous elite and a relatively impoverished peon class.

      “prosperous elite and a relatively impoverished peon class”
      Ironically, this has been expanding at an exponential rate in the major democrat managed areas. Then they rile up the peasant class by claiming to fight against income inequality. It’s a constant win-win situation for them. They keep the peasants voting form them so the ruling class can become even more rich and powerful.

          If you want to see this in action, just look at what the nauseating Nick Hanauer has said (and had said about him) in the Seattle Times. This is *exactly* what’s going on. All of the above.

          Hanauer and the rest of the crony-socialist billionaire’s club make no bones about it. He even wrote an article specifically about how giant socialist programs were necessary to keep the peons from rising up and killing people like him.

          It’s all out there in the open, but we’ve been told they’re doing it to us for our own good, and people don’t want to believe their own lying eyes.

          Just search for his name (he’s done guest columns and been editorialized in the Seattle Times and had a popular TED Talk a few years ago) and you’ll find plenty of grist for the mill.

          He says he’s all about improving capitalism, but it’s mostly the usual champagne socialist garbage wrapped up in new words. He’s also the one behind the raft of anti-gun initiatives plaguing WA state the last few years. A friend to liberty, he is not.

        Largely, Southern Democrats had blacks on their Cotton Plantations. Largely, Northern Conservatives fought to take blacks off the Cotton Plantations…..fighting a 100 year battle…..American Civil War, through Reconstruction…..Jim Crowe Laws, KKK, segregation,….through WWI and II into the 50’s and 60’s….100 years. In the 60’s, Johnson Democrats realized there is more money, power, and control in Government than in cotton. So, they placed the blacks, and growing numbers of whites, on the Government Plantation. What a great concept. Democrats can tax other people to pay for the shanty shacks, sow belly and collard greens, and pay police to keep the blacks “in Line”…..and the Democrats get all the black vote!!!

It’s funny how it’s supposed to be an article about suppressing real news when there’s no convenient narrative, and the very first sentence is: Trump and his supporters are hateful, racist people. The author is just doing his part to push that ignorant narrative. Even the ones that think they’re speaking truth to power are part of the fake news industrial complex.

      Speaking of narrative:

      “Of the 391 U.S. massacres of four or more victims since 2006 contained in the AP/USAT/NU database, 85 (or 22%) involved weapons other than a gun.”

      Number seems a touch inflated. Ah, “AP/USAT/NU database” and “massacre”.

    Last weekend 8 people were killed and 43 wounded in Chicago. (HeyJackass.com) All minority. Many gang related. Some accidental victims. But, since this happened in a socialist utopia, the press can never report it. What is happening in other big cities? Why won’t media cover this? Why are we constantly deflected away from the rotting core of our urban areas by media? Why aren’t the Democrat leaders of these wonderful places held to account? I guess it’s easier to claim someone else is a racist instead of liberal/progressive/socialist/Democrats.

          I have not forgotten reading this 3 years ago. Like I said before. Down the memory hole it goes because it doesn’t fit the propaganda of the WHITE socialist progressive. Now at least because of President Trump white and black Liberals will be forced to speak about the city of Baltimore Maryland. And the sh*t they have created and kept that way for decades.

          75% of US multiple shootings are committed by black persons (NYTimes) . 54% of all homicide, and 57% of all homicide by gun, is committed by black persons. The census bureau shows black persons are 13.6% of the United States population. Notably, all but 8% of multiple shootings occur in Democrat administered cities.

          The average republican dominated county in the US has lower murder rates than the European, Canadian and Australian average.

          Yes it is correct that when the perpetrator is black there is less coverage. Also when there is coverage, there is less mention of race of perpetrator if the perpetrator is black.

          The part they never talk about is the effect the Welfare Industrial Complex has had on the black traditional family. It’s very interesting how Liberals support homosexual marriage. A two person adult family.

          But they do support REPLACING the father and his guns with a government check and the guns of a police department.

    The data is not half as important as who is presenting that data.

      We’re in the worst of both worlds right now, I think.

      Back in the old days, before TV and the corporate/government consolidation of the news media, everyone knew that every outlet had its own self-interested positions and advocated for the truth *as they saw it.*

      The post-partisan, objective newsroom of the corporate/gov’t networks from the Cold War onward was always a lie. It was comforting and comfortable, it kept everyone together on the same page, but it was a huge lie.

      Now we have those same gatekeepers, still cloaked in their decaying mantle of authority and objectivity, desperately using their power and mythos to undermine not only the constitutional republic of the US, but all the independent voices trying to tell the truth. (And not all the independent voices are telling the truth, either.)

      Once you start looking at what’s out there, it not only becomes difficult to know who to believe, it becomes just as hard to know who NOT to believe.

      Actually, most media coverage is based on the nature of the victims.

      If there are several white, English-speaking victims, we’ll see more coverage.

      If the victims are poor or a minority, will see less coverage.

      Nobody in the US cares about Japanese speaking, yellow people or about poor, black people. But if the victim is a privileged white, English-speaking person, then we’ll see plenty of coverage.

      Methodology has very little to do with it, remember Jim Jones Kool-Aid massacre?
      Mostly white folks, English-speaking, but dead from Kool-Aid. The only guns involved were used to kill those investigating this religious nut. But we had plenty of media coverage, documentaries and made for TV movies, no cover up due to the Anti-gun agenda here, right?

      And I got to say, comparing the Dems to Caligula is hilarious!

      Trump is a perfect fit for Caligula, the parallels are uncanny.

      1. avatar pwrserge says:

        What you forget is that Caligula did a great job in the early years of his reign before there was an assassination attempt that left him in a coma for a few months. So yeah, you’re right. Trump is a great parallel for early Caligula. A charismatic and effective ruler taking over after the years of abject failure that was his predecessor.

        You see, when you make comparisons, it helps to actually know history rather than the cliff notes version.

          Interesting, perhaps you’re reading different histories than I, because everything I find shows him as a terrible leader. Yes, for the first six months most folks liked him, he hadn’t had time to torture them yet. But then after the ‘illness’ you speak of, his true colors showed interesting, perhaps you’re reading different history to then I am because everything I find shows him as a terrible leader. Yes, for the first six months most folks liked him, he hadn’t had time to torture them yet. But then after the illness you speak of, his true colors showed just how much he and Donald Trump have in common. You know, Caligula declared himself a God. Especially fascinating is the part where Caligula often dressed as a woman:

          “However, six months into his rule, Caligula fell severely ill. For nearly a month, he hovered between life and death. In October of 37 A.D., he recovered, but it was quickly apparent that he was not the same person.
          Tortured by headaches, Caligula wandered the palace at night. He abandoned the customary toga for silken gowns and often dressed as a woman. In addition, Caligula flaunted his power, eliminating his political rivals and forcing parents to watch the executions of their sons. Most egregious, however, was Caligula’s declaration that he was a living God, ordering a bridge to be built between his palace and the Temple of Jupiter so that he could have consultations with the deity. Not even marriage and the birth of a daughter seemed to change him.
          Rome soon grew to hate its leader, and citizens began a secret push to get rid of him. On January 24, 41 A.D., Caligula was attacked by a group of guardsman, following a sporting event. During the assassination, Caligula was stabbed 30 times, and killed. His body was dumped into a shallow grave, and his wife and daughter were murdered.”

          what a complete liar this “miner49er poster is.

          Fact: The vast majority of people in that Jim Jones massacre were BLACK. Blacks at the time were 12% of the US population 80% of Jones followers were black. IOt was a top story for half a year. Front page on Time, Newsweek, US news and world report, NYTimes Magazine, Washington Post, and massive sustained coverage on all the networks.
          Of note his two black assistance were the ones purposely giving the koolaid they knew was poisoned to the children at Jonestown.

    Disdain works. It works for the anti-people keeping their useful idiots all wee-wee’d up.

    Disdain works, arguing with the anti-people; not caustic mockery or name-calling, but as subtext. It convinces the audience. It also makes the anti-people nuts, which makes them look bad — er, worse — and can be fun. Alinsky’s advice, again.

    Disdain for leaving some dead, and tragedies un-mourned. Every week; every week-end, but we can’t say where.

    Disdain for clinging to “ideas” that don’t work.

    Disdain for spinelessly dodging reality: you can’t ban your way to safety.

    Disdain for their ignorance of the topic, from stats to mechanics. No, high-capacity clipazines are not a thing.

    Get outraged among the like minded if you want. Out among the convincables, the feeling is disdain. It’s easy because anti-people like Bloomie’s bots, and Mothers Against Only Some Violence earn it. Say enough that watchers n hearers, fueled by your disdain, can figure out why for themselves.

    In other news, Sheriff Lyin isn’t just still at large; he’s running again, including public fund raisers, with no “shut it down” protests in evidence. Apparantly, the good people of Broward county didn’t have enough of their neighbor’s kids killed on his watch to be done with him.

    I don’t want to make a point on dead kids’ graves, like “red flag” laws maybe won’t work given the number of flags on that whack-job, like how much protection really happens from school protection officers (who B T W are armed) who stay outside.

    When protected people get killed, maybe the message is: In this life, things are much harder than the after life. In this life, you’re on your own.

Or do you believe that the pharmaceutical companies should be allowed to deceive both doctors and the public about the safety of their medications?

          “Ten years later, Purdue pleaded guilty in federal court to understating the risk of addiction to OxyContin, including failing to alert doctors that it was a stronger painkiller than morphine, and agreed to pay $600 million in fines and penalties. But Sackler’s support of the decision to conceal OxyContin’s strength from doctors—in email exchanges both with Friedman and another company executive—was not made public.
          The email threads were divulged in a sealed court document that ProPublica has obtained.”

          Drug makers don’t prescribe drugs, doctors do. The same doctors who want to ban guns despite the incontrovertible fact — not from some studies, but from all studies, that guns are used to prevent more crimes than committed with them, were handing out addictive and lethal drugs like candy.

        I think I’d rather read Vlad Tepes’ insanity than your stupidity. Prince and Tom Petty and Michael Jackson (you forgot him) died because they couldn’t handle the pressures of the business. Just like you can’t handle the pressures of blogging. They died because of a character weakness as in Whitney Houston’s tragic death. It’s not what you take it’s why you take it. It’s also who you surround yourself with. A bunch of losers or winners. I don’t know what era you grew up in but it must be pre-neanderthal. I lived through the 80’s when cocaine use was everywhere – in every workplace. I knew many people who succumbed to the temptation to use and abuse but I also know many people who remained centered and focused on what life really is.

          It’s a clear indication you have a subconscious desire to actually be Vlad Tepes, very interesting.

          Apparently, you know nothing of the world of professional musicians and entertainers.

          In Tom Petty’s case, he was dealing with intense pain from degenerative joint disease. He could have stopped touring and had the surgery he needed but Tom cared about the members of his crew and staff who would been with him for almost 30 years and he knew that once he stopped touring they would all be out of a job. He cared about the people who have supported him for decades and made the decision to trust the doctors and use the ‘safe’ pain medicines.

          The pharmaceutical companies intentionally miss lead doctors and patients about the safety of OxyContin, Lortabs and other opioids. The emails obtained as a result of discovery in the lawsuits against pharmaceutical companies have shown unequivocally that these companies conspired to withhold important information about the addiction potential of these drugs.

          Why do you think courts have awarded hundreds of millions of dollars in damages against these pharmaceutical companies for their deception and outright fraud?

          While I hope that you or your family members never suffer from addiction I fear that a personal experience with the tragedy of opioid addiction is possibly the only thing that will help you understand the nature of this problem.

        If the victims are white, English-speaking people, there will be much coverage.

        If the victims are poor and or minorities, there will be very little coverage.

        Apparently, no one cares when poor people get killed, it’s only important when the rich, white, blonde people get killed that you will see search coverage.

          The attack in New Zealand didn’t meet your criteria. Way to prove, once again, that the left wing is a bunch of massive racists.

          Vlad Tepes = Miner49, just run a site google and look at the same phrasing in many comments

          The rich, white, blonde people. That would be you Miner49er. Or should I call you “wasichu” – take of the fat and deceiver of Native Americans?

          If the victims are black it tends to get more converge. If the perpetrator is black then racial background of the perp tend to be less covered.

          How many Americans would even know from the coverage that about 3/4 of all US multiple shooting are committed by the less than 14% of the population that is black?

          The Charlotte church shooting by a white guy of ten black parishioners got eight times the above the fold, or top net based story coverage compared to the the shooting of 16 whites targeted by a black BLM supporter in Dallas.

          No Miner is not me “the original Vlad” nor is Minor the fake Vlad either , the fake is the one without the moniker.

          To Minor. I hope you realize that there are two Vald’s. The fake is easy to spot not only by his childish posts but he has no moniker either.

          Miner49=VladTepes with the avatar picture. I just ran their posts though a= sock puppet analyzer = 100% confidence.
          You can see them using same terms looking at this, or use a sock puppet analyzer.
          They also correlate with a user SamIAm who looks to have been laughed off of The Truth about guns when claiming that gun murder rate had risen the past 25 years, when it fell by 50%
          site:thetruthaboutguns.com miner49er vlad

          sockpuppet analyzer shows Miner49=VladTepes=Sam I am=2Asux=ciscokid

          What we are looking at is an unbalance person who is trolling this site and who demonstrably and routinely inverts facts.

          for example he/she claims jonestown victims were all “white” and that this is why jonestown got saturation media coverage. Miner49=VladTepes=SamIam=2Asux creates an entire theory based on this claim. Then he decries ‘fake news” at fox. Hmm, where did he get his “fact” that jonestown victims were mostly white? From CNN? Or for Everytown friends? Does it matter to him/her that like all his.her claims any of us can see it is false?

          “all white” like miner49er and his sockpuppets claim? take a look: https://s.hdnux.com/photos/07/00/67/1838533/15/1024×1024.jpg

          I agree. The 2 have very similar styles – to similar to be a coincidence. They also have the same reactions to my posts which tells me they are one in the same. Vlad’s desperation in proving that he was indeed “real” led to him creating an avatar. That desperation has only made the job easier.

    The progressive agenda has led us to this crazy culture of mass shooters today, along with other abominable behavior. I am old enough I remember when Teachers started the school day with the pledge, the Lord’s Prayer, and a reading from Scripture. By the end of the school year our Teachers would have read through the entire Bible to us. They still had time to teach us to read, properly write in cursive script, science, geography, the true history of this nation, and proper work ethics. When we walked through the High School parking areas almost every pickup had a gun rack with a shotgun or a Marlin or Winchester lever gun. There was never ever an act of gun violence. Then the progressives got control of the schools and told the teachers it was wrong to lead the students in prayer and to read the Bible to them, because someone might suffer psychological damage!!!! Then guns were banned from campus. Then discipline went out the window and the mass shooting started. Lesson here, progressive social philosophy is a sadistic failed philosophy.

    First – the current practices in some states leave many chronic pain users of opiates in pain. Many people have been on mid level doses for 30+ years and get detoxed to the point that their pain is too much to do anything other than lie down or sit in an easy chair. They can’t sleep more than 4 hours and pray for their maker to take them.

    Second – you might go through the New Testament in a school year, but to go through the whole Bible in a school year would take at least 1 1/2 hours a day with very little comprehension by the students.

    Seldom do you here about the social Ills of Japan but they exist there as anyplace else in the world. By nature they have a stoic posture and the Japanese media exhibits a level of respect for the victims rather than the need to compete for ratings.
