Press Censorship Bans Gun Violence Debate
Also see Why Progressivism is a Mental Illness
The Bristol Herald Courier editorial board claims we need a debate on gun violence. The mass murder of helpless French citizens disarmed by draconian gun control laws turned Paris nightspots into slaughter houses as Muslims with plenty of guns and explosives had a turkey shoot.
The press didn't want to name the enemy. The Herald Courier reported on the Paris Muslim attack on A1 and A3 the next day never clearly identified the victims as non-Muslims targeted specifically for that reason or their attackers killing in the name of Islam as Muslims. In all fairness these were AP reports.
Only the term "Islamic radicals" was used - no they are Muslim terrorists and using the term "radical" suggests very few are involved in this. Surveys show both ISIS and the use of violence is popular among a large minority of Muslims.
Most Muslims favor "extremist" Sharia Law being enforced on everyone - they don't see it as extreme but a benefit to society. This is a clear point of contention the press plays down due fact Islam can't be separated into religious and political-ideological spheres. With the violent ideology thus Mohammed it reverts to a distorted Judaism with little to offer adherents.
Where are the masses of Muslims in the streets renouncing this butchery done in their name? Even Secretary of State John Kerry stated the slaughter of journalists at Charlie Hebdo and Jews at a Kosher market earlier in the year had it coming - then tried to backpedal, that he understood the motives and seemed to sympathize with the Muslim killers. Much of the press seemed to agree. Like the Paris Muslim attack the killers then were mainly French and Belgian citizens.

Muslims may renounce terrorism but refuse the renounce the ideology aka Sharia Law that drives it. One young Muslim women argued on Hannity that Islam can't exist outside political aspects of Sharia Law. They have every right to bring their political ideology into politics she says - and that is true. Thus Islam can't be allowed to exist within Western society until Muslims renounce political Islam and Sharia. We don't allow fundamentalist' Christians or Jews to use political power to force their ideology onto the public but give Islam a pass. This is irrational and is driven by Leftist ideology of anything anti-Western is to be encouraged.
To the Left, and the Press is an organ of the Left, issues are seen in terms of "oppression" of whatever manufactured victim category they can create, which always excludes the Western culture and white people. Muslims even if white are seen as people of color thus victims of oppression for that reason.
They use nonsense terms such as "militant" to somehow suggest there was some alleged injustice, equating this to protest. They attack the action as "terrorism" but fail to identify the exact cause (in this case Islamic supremacism) or clearly identify the attackers. (Sunni Muslims likely followers of a Saudi or Muslim Brotherhood controlled Mosque.)
They attempt to sever the religious aspect from the deed done in its name. This kind of propaganda journalism leaves all Muslims under suspicion.
Contrast this to a report on A8 of the Bristol Herald Courier on November 13. It wasn't nonsense such as "three American militants were arrested for plotting to bomb churches." We knew right away the intended targets were synagogues and black churches and the alleged idiots who were career criminals were white supremacists.
They even had two paragraphs on their alleged religion (Asatru) as "extremist" and linked to "Norse gods and traditions." While reprinting ADL propaganda they dredge up unfounded nonsense such as "many groups beyond prison in Virginia and elsewhere" carry the same beliefs based on Nordic paganism.
How many groups? What are their numbers? They present zero proof to prove it - but gets reprinted anyway. The ADL has a record of inflating this nonsense.
One will never hear terms such as Muslim supremacists used which is really what they are and that most Muslims support the idea in some form even if they support do not outright violence to achieve it. They refuse to link Islam directly to religious centered violence it spawns, while linking every member of Asatru and Nordic paganism to white racists.
But Black racism is ignored or buried as well. The Herald Courier mentioned the murder of two Roanoke journalists in the article I addressed below, but withheld vital information to make the attack about guns and not about a black racist who wrote in his own words the white victims were targeted specifically over his racial grievances. Well Ms. Uthoff?
Certainly the editorial was about stopping I suppose "spur of the moment" gun violence, but refused to address the primary source of most of the gun violence and the perpetrators because they are non-white - journalists can be fired for violations of political correctness.
Not only do they face threat of Muslim violence such as the case with Charlie Hebdo, but political retaliation as well. Concentration of media ownership assures the print press in particular walks in lockstep with the political class - on most issues there is no "left-right" disagreement because it doesn't exist among them. I call this censorship and bias.
I got to speak to Ms. Uthoff on this issue and the following response was published in the Bristol Herald Courier December 12, 2015. It was edited and somewhat shortened but the main thrust wasn't censored. Most gun violence originate in minority communities and among illegal aliens.
RE: Kudos to Ms. Uthoff's gun editorial and why the press blocks honest debate.
For the record I believe any gun purchase outside shotguns or bolt-action rifles should have mandatory 30-day waiting periods and a gun safety class with licensed instructors trained to weed out nutjobs.
Ms. Uthoff's selected 20-year death list is a typical weekend in Democrat-minority ruled third-world cesspools of Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, New Orleans, and St. Louis as mainly blacks and illegal aliens shoot hundreds killing dozens.
Virginia State Police stats show Blacks commit 68% of the violent crime in this State - throw in Hispanics often counted as white 70-80% including most of the gun violence and over half the murders.
Texas Department of Public Safety notes, "foreign aliens committed 611,234 unique crimes in Texas from 2008 to 2014, including thousands of homicides and sexual assaults."
Five states with massive illegal alien populations (New York, California, Texas, Arizona, Florida) of 18,643 murders from 2005-2008 7,085 or 38% were committed by non-citizens at only 5.6% of the population. With feral blacks this accounts for most of violent crime, murders, and gun violence.
Ms. Uthoff got it right on culture in particular the culture of criminality and self-inflicted failure in these communities while the press incites more violence with its tirades and lies on white racism and racial injustice.
Tell that to the next black child shot to death by a black with a stolen gun - let's try prosecuting minority thugs that even when arrested on gun charges often get plea-bargained to misdemeanors.
Let's have a real debate Ms. Uthoff and it's culture.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Let's try prosecuting thugs, not waiting for violence

Kudos to Ms. Uthoff's gun editorial and the need for true, honest debate on the issue. However, we should include a discussion of why the press blocks honest debate, because news stories generally fail to point out where most of the gun violence occurs: in the inner cities.
For the record, I believe any gun purchase outside shotguns or bolt-action rifles should have mandatory 30-day waiting periods and a required gun safety class with licensed instructors trained to weed out nut jobs.
Ms. Uthoff's selected 20-year death list is a typical weekend in the Democratic, minority-ruled, third-world cesspools of Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, New Orleans and St. Louis.
Five states with massive undocumented immigrant populations (New York, California, Texas, Arizona, Florida) from 2005-2008 saw 38 percent of violent crimes committed by members of those populations. Ms. Uthoff got it right on culture, particularly the culture of criminality and self-inflicted failure in inner-city communities.
Let's try prosecuting minority thugs who even when arrested on gun charges often get plea-bargained to misdemeanors.

According to the analysis conducted by the Texas Department of Public Safety, foreign aliens committed 611,234 unique crimes in Texas from 2008 to 2014, including thousands of homicides and sexual assaults.
The report describes an alien crime wave of staggering proportions exacerbated by federal officials unwilling to enforce immigration laws.
The Texas DPS report says well over 100,000 individual criminal aliens have been booked into Texas jails:
From October 2008 to April 2014, Texas identified a total 177,588 unique criminal alien defendants booked into Texas county jails. These individuals have been identified through the Secure Communities initiative, in which Texas has participated since October 2008.
Let's look at a few numbers.
Between 2008 and 2014, 40% of all murder convictions in Florida were criminal aliens. In New York it was 34% and Arizona 17.8%. During those years, criminal aliens accounted for 38% of all murder convictions in the five states of California, Texas, Arizona, Florida and New York, while illegal aliens constitute only 5.6% of the total population in those states.
That 38% represents 7,085 murders out of the total of 18,643.
That 5.6% figure for the average illegal alien population in those five states comes from US Census estimates. We know the real number is double that official estimate. Yet, even if it is 11%, it is still shameful that the percentage of murders by criminal aliens is more than triple the illegal population in those states.
Those astounding numbers were compiled by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) using official Department of Justice data on criminal aliens in the nation's correctional system.
The numbers were the basis for a presentation at a recent New Hampshire conference sponsored by the highly respected Center for Security Policy. You can view the full presentation here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oIBiGVk9-o8
