We are in familiar territory again.
This time in Southbury, Connecticut, where some individual or group left “racist fliers” directed at white people in the homes of residents. The report begins with:
Civil rights leaders say there is a rise in racist and anti-Semitic incidents.
Experience will tell you that the phrase “civil rights leaders” is frequently an introduction to an appearance by the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).
But the clue that this is a CAIR broadcast is the racist fliers. CAIR representatives can’t resist stories like this, and exploiting them even when their stated causes aren’t even remotely involved is one way they appear on TV so often.
Reporter Gabby Molina begins with:
Experts say this points to a larger problem being seen across our state and across the country.
experts? As expected, we cut to CAIR-CT CEO Farhan Memon who says:
I think what we’re seeing is an increase in hate speech in general in Connecticut and across the country.
And then we parted ways with him. This is so familiar to those who pay attention to CAIR on television. The CAIR rep walks in and out without warning, like the station is trying to get us to associate CAIR with something like the FBI, since it’s the feds we go to next.
Gaby then returns with some infographics.
According to the most recent FBI data, hate crimes rose to the highest level in more than a decade in 2020.
Jihad Watch discussed these FBI statistics in a previous post, but they’re worth checking out.
This is the hate crime section of the FBI Crime Data Explorer. If one scrolls down slightly to the “Bias” table, it clearly shows that the second most hated group is “Anti-White”. Followed by “Anti-Jewish”, with “Anti-Islamic (Muslim)” in twelfth place. Of course, there is a separate section for the ladies, “Anti-Islamic (Female)”, which goes to 13.
This link will show you that the number of “Anti-White” hate crimes increased by 30% from 2019 to 2022, from 666 incidents to 869.
What does it mean? It means there is no news about this. When did whites beat Jews in the hate crime rat race? We can see what the statistics say, but what do the numbers mean? It could be the subject of an interesting newscast.
But not this one. After some B-roll, CAIR representative Memon says again:
This is the eighth time in the last year that racist messages have been distributed in a Connecticut town on its streets and parks, and that is very concerning to residents.
Gaby tells us that these are white supremacist and anti-gay flyers, shows us some videos, interviews the neighbors who don’t like the flyers, and then says:
Experts say these views are becoming all too common.
Yeah, don’t forget that the CAIR guy is an “expert”.
When you see highly visible instances of this, occurring more frequently and in public, you have to ask yourself, why is this? It can certainly point to public figures who now openly associate with and espouse racist views.
Sure, sure, but we also have the President of the United States saying that white people are our nation’s greatest terrorist threat. There is no shortage of anti-white books, newspaper and magazine articles, college courses, music, websites, comedians, etc.
And now we have FBI data suggesting that all this chic disdain for white people is having an effect.
Also, there are groups that seemingly attack white police officers at every opportunity, such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
CAIR doesn’t like white people. He uses his access to the media to attack targets several times a month, every month for more than five years. Some of the video evidence is here. Here’s something else.
The ruffles have nothing to do with Muslims. Farhan Memon’s presence here has a lot to do with his organization’s contempt for white people.
This broadcast was a bit of a disaster, as it inadvertently confirmed the white supremacist message. Those might even keep it to gain recruits, with the message: “They are go out looking for you Supremacists can prove that there is suppressed information about the rise in hate crimes against whites. And that TV stations are presenting anti-white agitators as “leaders” and “experts.”
WTIC did not plan to make white supremacists look good. But a friendly piece of advice: unless you know what he’s doing, you’re already starting on the wrong foot every time you think about putting CAIR on TV.
“Civil rights leaders say that to stop hate acts, people must speak out against them,” by Gaby Molina, Fox 61, December 6, 2022:
SOUTHBURY, Conn. — Civil rights leaders say there is a worrying rise in incidents involving racism, white supremacy, anti-Semitism and other forms of discrimination.
“I think what we are seeing is an increase in hate speech in general. In Connecticut and across the country,” said Farhan Memon, president of the CT chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
According to the most recent FBI data, hate crimes hit the highest level in more than a decade in 2020 and the Anti-Defamation League reports that anti-Semitism reached its highest point in the US in 2021.
Unfortunately, you don’t have to go far to find it.
“This is the eighth time in the last year that racist literature has been distributed on the streets and parks of a Connecticut town and that is very concerning to the residents who live there,” Memon said.
Southbury is the latest community affected by hate acts. Pamphlets with white supremacist messages and anti-LGBTQ rhetoric were found in the city.
Some neighbors noticed right in their driveways.
“I was furious. My kids are black and it literally hits very close to home. And it was hard for me that my kids could take this and read it and feel something about themselves,” said Pete Gaffey of Southbury.
Experts said these extreme views are becoming all too common.
“When you see highly visible incidents appearing more frequently and in public, you have to ask yourself why this is,” Memon said. “It can certainly point to public figures who are now associating with and espousing racist views,” he said…
