Most of us remember Ahmaud Arbery. He was a black jogger who was stopped by three men, then shot and killed. Two of the men who were convicted of murder got life sentences and a third got 35 years.

The Democrat candidate for US Senate in Pennsylvania, John Fetterman, had a similar incident in his not-so-distant past. Back in 2013, when he was the mayor of Braddock, Pennsylvania, Fetterman thought he heard gunfire. When he then saw an unarmed black man jogging by, Hizzoner grabbed a shotgun and chased down the jogger and held him for police.

What’s more, given Fetterman’s affinity for gun control laws, why did he have a shotgun at all? Why didn’t he let police handle the situation? Can you spell hypocrite? Or does he use his gun ownership as he “cred” to sell his anti-gun views (from his campaign website) . . .

True public safety also must include ending the tragedy of mass shootings in this country. The United States is the only country that sees this level of mass shootings, and we have the power to end it. I’m a gun owner, and I’ve been around guns my whole life. I want what an overwhelming majority of Americans, including the majority of gun owners, want – which is common sense gun safety measures. We need universal background checks, red flag laws, and more proactive efforts to get illegal guns off our streets.

Nevermind that the USA actually ranks 64th in the number of mass public shootings. But let’s not allow reality get in the way of a good soundbite.

The bigger question though involves the racism component of the story. Is John Fetterman a racist bigot? Because it seems that gunfire plus a running black man equals a criminal trying to get away in Fetterman’s mind.

Never mind the runner was dressed in running apparel. And unarmed. And never mind that Fetterman wasn’t a cop in his tiny town or trained as one anywhere else.

From PJ Media . . .

In February 2020, Ahmaud Arbery, 25, was murdered while jogging in Satilla Shores, near Brunswick in Glynn County, Georgia. Three white men pursued Arbery in their trucks for several minutes, incorrectly believing him to be a burglar. Arbery tried to run away, but the men prevented his escape and eventually shot him and recorded themselves doing it. National outrage erupted over the shooting and the botched investigation, but all three men were found guilty last year.

This story bears a striking resemblance to an incident from nine years ago involving John Fetterman, the Democratic nominee for the U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania. Yet, there’s a good chance you haven’t heard the story.

In 2013, John Fetterman, who was mayor of Braddock, Pa., at the time, saw a black man jogging after hearing what he thought was gunfire. After the noise, he brought his child inside to safety and dialed  9-1-1. Instead of waiting for authorities to investigate, according to the police report, Fetterman grabbed his shotgun and chased an unarmed black man down, holding him at gunpoint until the police arrived.

Fetterman was never charged after police showed up. He claimed that he thought he heard gunfire and that he couldn’t discern the jogger’s race, but even Philly’s Democrat former mayor Michael Nutter calls BS on that. Also from PJ Media . . .

Fetterman’s primary opponents called him out over the incident during a televised debate, questioning his motives and his lackluster explanations for his behavior. Pennsylvania Democrats also expressed concern that the incident could reduce the turnout of African Americans in the upcoming midterm elections. Without significant minority turnout in the cities of Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, Democrats are unlikely to prevail in November.

“He’s not shooting straight on this, no pun intended. Just fess up. Apologize,” Michael Nutter, Philadelphia’s last Black mayor, told NBC News in April. “All this other stuff — that he was the chief law enforcement officer or that he didn’t know the guy was Black — just doesn’t really sound like he wants to tell the truth.“

Nutter added, “It’s not helping him. Figuratively speaking, he’s shooting himself in the foot, and he doesn’t have to.”

Fortunately, the gun-toting then-mayor didn’t shoot the innocent jogger. But it does show his views towards African-Americans.

In ordinary times, a guy like that wouldn’t have a prayer of getting anywhere near a federal elected office. However, after Joe Biden allegedly got 81 million votes in 2020, anything’s possible. And both Biden and Fetterman have similar oratory skills.

  1. Check his closet. I’m sure there’s an ss/antifa uniform hanging there. But why would that be surprising? He’s a fascist leftist that supports suppressing civil and human rights.

    And why weren’t criminal charges filed against this thug. Has the system been weaponized to support the fascist thugs?

    • I am a student and I do work part time on this website to meet my needs. One who is jobless or wants to earn more money for himself, (buc-49) should try this because this is really very easy and less time consuming and also advantageous
      without investing any amount.. https://richzone99.blogspot.com/

    • Hey watertard…Cease lending your helping hands to democRats. If you cannot do that then by all accounts you might as well join them and vote for the marxist.

      • Geez Debbie no “you raccis” diatribe? I’ve been here a helluva lot longer than “miss” jeannie one note You just declared war chickdude…

        • And I’ve been here a helluva lot longer than you and you started in on her first, some time ago… watertard. “Life’s hard. It’s harder when yer stoopid”.

      • I live in pa, Oz is a joke.
        Just like much of your diatribe.
        If you actually think a comment on this site helps the democrats or effects the election then your delusional.
        Derp

    • Yeah, that race is a complete s***show, with BOTH candidates being liars and hypocrites. It’s a shame both candidates can’t lose.

        • Don’t get me wrong, Pat, if I were a PA voter, I’d probably hold my nose and vote for Oz . . . he’s CERTAINLY better than Fetterman was BEFORE he stroked out. (Why Trump chose to endorse that idiot illustrates one of my beefs with Trump – he values loyalty over quality). My point was that they are BOTH pathetic.

    • No, Oz is by no means the best candidate…but he ain’t no stroked out Neo-Marxist either. The Carharts ain’t foolin’ nobody…well, they shouldn’t anyway. No equivalency here.

    • Came here to say basically this. Oz is an out of state, out of touch, formerly great heart surgeon who now peddles snake oil as a TV star to middle aged housewives.

      The idiots who voted for him in the primaries have already thrown Toomey’s seat.

  2. The Democrats are proving their inclusiveness by running mental defectives for every possible office, starting with Babbling Joe Biden, John “What Did He Say?” Fetterman, the coven that calls itself “The Squad” in Congress, and a whole cadre of dummies who can’t tell you what a”woman” is.

    Hey, I believe in hiring the mentally handicapped, but this is going too far.

  3. Another Leftist/fascist Dimocrat candidate is a hypocrite and a liar. Ho-hum. And in other news, the sun rises in the east, water is wet, and dacian the demented is a retard.

  4. What’s the problem? Racist, hypocrite, thinks he’s above the law. Sounds like a good Democrat to me. Throw in the stroke damage and we’ve got ourselves POTUS material.

    • Actually, I think we’re making some progress on TTAG, but there’s much work to be done!

      Of course, there are some glaring differences in these two stories, but that sort of cognitive dissonance doesn’t usually trouble the conservatives.

      Did Fetterman “pursued (him) in their trucks for several minutes”?

      Did Fetterman “eventually shot him”?

      But perhaps the patriotic conservative Republicans are right, Pennsylvania would be better served with a Mohammed-worshiping Turkish citizen, proud veteran of the Turkish army as their Senator in the United States Congress.
      He would probably be the only Pennsylvanian government official who voted in the Turkish national election of 2018.

      Did somebody say hypocrisy?

    The U.S. endures the most mass shootings in the world, with—depending upon one’s definition of a mass shooting (see next section)—somewhere between 21 and more than 600 in 2020. A 2015 Politifact article correcting then-President Barack Obama’s statement that no other advanced country experiences mass shootings like the U.S. cited data from 2000 to 2014 to prove that mass shootings do indeed happen in other advanced countries. However, the article conceded that the U.S. experienced 133 shootings during that period, while the next-highest total was Germany with six.

    The fact-checking analysis goes on to suggest that instead of computing each country’s average, or mean mass shooting deaths, a better method would be to compute the median, or typical, number of deaths. The median is considered by many statisticians to be better insulated against individual outlier events (such as the Norway massacre) that can skew results. This leads to a more accurate day-to-day impression and country-to-country comparison.

    • Hey lil’dtard.
      Remove the 20 or so Demtarded run counties that lead the US bodycount and the US rates right alongside Switzerland.

      Happy to show you the root cause is raciss Demtarded leadership. Thanks for playing Jerry. 🤣

    • BUT the fact is that the vast majority of mass shootings outsaide the uSA are far bfrome either civilised or advanced we are talking sud b-Sahara Africa and the middle East here The real comparison should be betweenn the uSA Europe and similarly advnced nations. Thewre is NO BLOODY EXUSE for them 22000 Detahs due to gun crime innthe uSA last year. The projections are that by 2035 there will be 35,000 such deaths Per Annum. Semantics ARE NOT BLOODY WELL APPROPRIATE.
      In the UK Last year I have no ,re4asomnn the o thiunk the UK is anything a European Average, there were aroundm 800 illegal deaths from all cause. That includes, gun crime, knife crime, MANSLAUGHTER, domestic violence and Acts of TerrorismInterp[oloated to the USA on a Per.Capita basis this would equate to 4000 illegal deaths from all causes. On that basis SURELY 22,000 by gun crime alone SHOULD be worrying.

      • Malo periculosam, libertatem quam quietam servitutem.

        Well All Hail, you’re chose to be a subject. So nobody here gives a flying flip what you think.

        Now shut up while those who have chosen liberty have a discussion on here.

      • Prince Albert the Poncey, Fake-Brit, Fake-Military Wanking Poofter,

        Cool story, bro!!! Now go look up murder rates iand gun deaths in other “advanced” countries. Here, I’ll help you out: https://fee.org/articles/the-myth-that-the-us-leads-the-world-in-mass-shootings/

        Have you been taking lying lessons from MajorStupidity and dacian the demented???? Two suggestions – they’re not very good at it, so I’d pick different teachers, and . . . you’re a REALLY slow student. Even those two lying idiots lie better than you do.

      • It’s GANGS. The left don’t care about those except for money & votes. The beak of the Britts has been broken for over 3/4 of a century.

    • You should actually read your own links.
      You might learn something.
      From your link. Nice try lying about the numbers.

      mass shootings actually comprise only a fraction of the overall gun deaths in the United States. In fact, roughly two-thirds of all gun-related deaths in the U.S. are suicides. In 2016, for example, 37,353 gun deaths occurred in the United States.
      Of these, 22,938 were suicides, and 14,415 were homicides. Within the homicides, 71 were classified as the result of a mass shooting.

      “Average (Mean) Annual Death Rate per Million People from Mass Public Shootings (U.S., Canada, and Europe, 2009-2015):
      Norway — 1.888
      Serbia — 0.381
      France — 0.347
      Macedonia — 0.337
      Albania — 0.206
      Slovakia — 0.185
      Switzerland — 0.142
      Finland — 0.132
      Belgium — 0.128
      Czech Republic — 0.123
      United States — 0.089
      Austria — 0.068

      England — 0.027
      Germany — 0.023
      Russia — 0.012
      Italy — 0.009
      In addition, a 2018 CRPC study ranked the U.S. at number sixty-four in the world in terms of mass shooting rates per capita.”

    • Don’t care wasn’t really relevant to begin with. Now the double standards of the statists/media and troll farm influencers trying to push a dead on arrival narrative on the other hand…..

    • Don’t know about you, chief, but I was ALWAYS of the opinion that what happened to Arbery was wrong. At most, IF the perps’ suspicions of him were right, they should have left it to the police. While I did see some on BOTH sides of the issue on this forum, your characterization is laughably slanted. You sound like a slightly more articulate version of MajorStupidity and dacian the demented.

      Perhaps, in the future, paint with a slightly narrower brush???

        • If so, until he shows his “true colors”, I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt. If he turns out to be another MajorStupidity/dacian the demented, I’ll slag him just as I do those two lying idiots.

        • Fair enough he just seems to pop up on these kinds of topics with a concern troll script in hand often enough that SAFE picked up on it.

        • “Fair enough he just seems to pop up on these kinds of topics with a concern troll script in hand often enough that SAFE picked up on it”

          Exactly.
          I’ve noticed his comments are usually followed up in short order by members of the troll farm. 🤪

  6. “The United States is the only country that sees this level of mass shootings.”

    An interesting pivot in the talking points. Remember just a couple of years ago, the U.S. was allegedly the *only* country that had mass shootings?

    • I don’t think any reasonable person claimed that the United States is the only country with any mass shootings whatsoever, just that the other countries experienced much lower occurrence.

      From the research quoted above:

      “However, the article conceded that the U.S. experienced 133 shootings during that period, while the next-highest total was Germany with six.“

      • Cool story, bro!!! Now do population size, standards for reporting, definitions applied by each country to report “mass shootings”, level of confidence in local reported statistics, and about thirty other significant factors. I wish I could believe you were this stupid . . . stupidity isn’t your fault . . . but I believe you KNOW you’re being a lying liar, and do it intentionally. Which makes you a disgusting piece of canine excrement.

        • And one of the most pertinent of those other factors would be to apply the rate of private gun ownership in each country to these studies. Hell, every country on the chart actually.

      • Remove the 20 or so Demtarded run counties that lead the US bodycount and the US rates right alongside Switzerland.

        Hold on, let me check here…….yeah, everyone is STILL laughing at you whiner.

        • James,

          WE all know that, and MajorStupidity knows that (I’m not sure dacian the demented even knows his own name), but the lying liars intentionally choose to ignore those simple facts, to further the all-important narrative. They remind me of an old, sarcastic meme (before “memes” were even a thing) “I have given up my search for truth, and am now looking for a good fantasy”. Their fantasy is “impeach the Bad Orange Man”. They have absurdly failed to make their fantasy come true, but like the “Einstein insane” they are, they never abandon their quixotic quest for success and relevance.

          I suppose, when you’re THAT pathetic, such pursuits are all you have.

    • Pathological liars ‘evolve’ their lies in order to gain the most buy-in or credibility…Democrats are notoriously flexible in defining (and redefining) terms they use to further their Agenda and in their attacks on non-believers (non-Democrats).

      • Now dems are trying to take credit for opening schools and the economy after they pushed for extended shut downs. We’ve always known politicians are liars. We’ve never witnessed anything approaching present day dems. They don’t even really try to hide it anymore. We can thank the media.

        • And so many just shamefully gobble it up. Like zombie parrots. Maybe they really did get elected in…

  7. Here’s the deal Jack. If you…if you hold near and dear to you that you, uhh… umm… like to be able to uh… anyway. Next question.

  8. Well if you read and believe in The Holy Bible
    You can only come to the conclusion that Noah’s carpentry skills were to good.

  9. our electoral system has given us this guy or a snake-oil-selling carpet bagger who thinks whining about crudités is the way to win rural voters

    we’ve fallen far from 1776.

    • How come Debbie doesn’t rag on you or other’s who doubt the almighty Oz? Could it be Drumpf is not infallible? I’d still vote for him fwiw…

  10. Was it really a black jogger?
    OR
    Was it a burglar, that was stealing from homes and construction sites…After getting caught, ran from citizens trying to detain him, until law enforcement arrived to take custody…Then went for the citizens gun, got shot and later died….Getting three men wrongfully convicted by a kangaroo court…
    I guess not he is a socialist democrat..

  11. For once I find myslef in agreement this idiot should be banned from public office for showing such a lack of self discipline let alone common sense. But one man does not negate nthe need for more stringent gun control measure, In fact I’d say it re-inforces it. But it says more about the gun culture in the USA than anythng else

    • Malo periculosam, libertatem quam quietam servitutem.

      Well All Hail, you’re chose to be a subject. So nobody here gives a fat flying flip what you think.

    • Prince Albert the Pondey, Fake-Brit, Fake-Military Wanking Poofter,

      “In fact I’d say it re-inforces it.”

      Ahem. I shall reiterate (learn to spell, Fake-Limey; it’s “reinforce”) a point I and others have attempted to bring to your attention numerous times.

      NO ONE ON THIS FORUM GIVE A S*** ABOUT YOUR OPINION. Bugger off, poofter.

    • Albert just the opposite. With unhinged individuals like hom we need to be armed for self preservation. Self defense is as foreign to you as the truth.

  12. Not wild about Dr Oz, but given the choice between him and any Demtard, especially one supported by the Senile in Chief meat puppet of the radical Green New Deal Left, there is option but to vote for Oz!
