Quoting a clueless LAPD detective: “It was a random dispute that went tragically wrong.” Of course, “random” most often means black attacker/non-black victim. Raul Lopez was murdered at work because he didn’t move fast enough to please a violent black customer, not because of some random alignment of nature. Everyone who is not oblivious to what happens before their own eyes is aware that black thugs attacking non-black victims is a very common occurrence and is not random at all. Random would mean that a reader, upon seeing only the headline of a news story, could not predict the race of the perpetrators. However, when I read ”Police: Cook Gunned Down Over Long Wait Times” at LosAngeles.CBSLocal.com, I instantly guessed the race of the shooter(s), and so did almost every soul who read the headline. Violent attacks by blacks against non-blacks is nothing new; neither are the excuses for them.
[Raul] Lopez, 38, was fatally shot in the chest shortly after 11 p.m. last Friday night at Hoagies & Wings on Ventura Boulevard as he tried to ward off a group of five black men who were causing a disturbance.
Police said one of the customers apparently became angry with Lopez about how long it was taking for the food to be prepared, and some racial slurs were reportedly used.
“It was a random dispute that went tragically wrong,” said LAPD Detective James Nuttle.
The suspects — all described as black men in their 30s — fled in a Cadillac Escalade or other dark-colored SUV after the shooting.
Three of the suspects were described as large men about 6’4″ tall and 300 pounds or more.
America Needs More Leaders with the Strength and Courage to Stand and Speak Against the Savagery We See Daily.
At the cbslocal.com link above, a timid white spokesman refers to the suspects as “gentlemen”. Have you noticed how often an American official, whose job it is to protect the citizens, no longer looks physically capable of doing so? There is no disrespect intended to the men who occupy many national, state, and local positions who are good, strong men. These observations are limited to the leaders that I have witnessed over the past few years and the inescapable conclusion that, to any objective viewer, many of these men appear weak.
This lack of strength is also very obvious in America’s armed forces; many of our current military leaders do not come across as manly men. My judgement on this issue comes almost solely from viewing the appearances of military leadership on programs such as CSPAN. Many strong leaders may indeed be serving in our military, but the representation on CSPAN and other public forums does not reflect those men.
What would a manly leader look like? One that comes quickly to mind is General Norman Schwarzkopf? You remember him don’t you? If you had to put out a call for help would it be to a man like Stormin’ Norman Schwarzkopf, or would you call for someone like our more recent military leaders? Do you remember this guy? He is more representative of the military leaders often appearing on CSPAN recently than is General Schwarzkopf. A nation cannot possibly be strong unless its leaders, both political and military, exude an unwavering strength; be they leaders who possess a quiet strength or men of a more outspoken nature. A true leader either must convey strength or weakness; there is no middle ground. So many contemporary leaders, in trying to claim that middle ground, seem even weaker for the effort.
When America elects weak men, those weak men appoint other weak men to leadership positions. If America ever recovers herself and returns to the business of electing men of strength, those elected men of strength will likewise choose to fill their subordinate leadership positions with men of strength and courage. It is up to American citizens to demand those strong leaders, and when given the opportunity, to vote for them.
Again, there is no intent here to disparage all public servants, including members of the military. These comments pertain only to the leaders of our day regularly seen speaking before Congress and in other situations covered by the media (including CSPAN). In most of these scenarios, it doesn’t appear that alpha males are the preferred candidate for these positions of leadership. Otherwise, wouldn’t we see more of them?
