Gorka Rants About “Black African” Crime [VIDEO]

Salon reports:

“Black crime” was no longer just a racist tag for far-right websites Monday, after Sebastian Gorka started talking about “black African gun crime” on Sinclair Broadcast stations. Gorka, a former White House adviser for President Donald Trump, said during a town hall-style event produced by Sinclair that action was needed to curb gun crime among “black Africans.”

“Our big issue is black African gun crime against black Africans,” Gorka said. “It is a tragedy. Go to Chicago, go to the cities run by Democrats. For 40 years, black young men are murdering each other by the bushel. This is a social issue. Allow the police to do their jobs and rebuild those societies. Legislation will not save lives.”

    There was a tweet the other day that posits that Gorka is a man who believes his own European accent makes him smart.

    • Phillip in L.A.

      “Gorka” comes from the Slavic root gorьk- ‘bitter’ (where the symbol ь represents ‘jer,’ in anticipation of the name given to these reduced vowels in Old Church Slavic)

  • Sam_Handwich

    yes, pay no attention to those white dudes shooting up movie theaters, political rallies, school classrooms, churches and concerts

    • boatboy_srq

      And offices, and schools,….

      • JAKvirginia

        And those are just the ones that made the headlines!

      • CJAS

        Or foiled shooting at parades, airports, etc.

      • GayOldLady

        And Planned Parenthood and the work place.

        The most dangerous group in our society are the white nationalists of all stripes. They hate everyone who isn’t WASPCS/White Anglo-Saxon/Protestant/Catholic/Straight

      • Adam King

        And women’s health clinics.

    • CPT_Doom

      Not to mention their wives, girlfriends and exes.

    • Adam Schmidt

      If we’re going to be concerned about “black African crime”, then lets look at root causes. Because you can claim that the root cause is because they’re black… but you’re racist as fuck. Or you can say that the root cause is because of centuries of systematic oppression starting with slavery. And if you think it’s the second one (you’re right), then solving it doesn’t start with cops, it starts with schools and with developing resources to enable upward mobility.

      • Nowhereman

        Hear hear! And I think that it’s mostly the white kids who need the educating.

    • Uncle Mark

      How touching that the recently-shitcanned Nazi suddenly cares for Black people killing other Black people, but says NOTHING about cops killing Black people.

      • Nowhereman

        And running this propaganda minute is mandatory on all local TV stations owned by the Sinclairs. The number is around 175.

  • clay

    and he WAS’NT talking about South Sudan.

  • boatboy_srq

    Why yes, the situation in Niger, Nigeria, Chad, Cote d’Ivoire, Liberia and Sudan is horrible. And hardly just due to Boko Haram, either.

    What’s that? You didn’t actually mean crime IN Africa?

    Oh.

    Well then fvck you you racist pig.

    • Joe in PA

      You should have led with your last sentence. 🙁

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    Somehow, someway these ” Sinclair Stations ” need to be taken down, before it’s too late.

    • pj

      its already too late. they own a boatload of stations already and adding more. a feature of each newscast on these stations is an editorial by this moron or somebody like him. its fox on a larger scale

    • bkmn

      They are on the verge of acquiring Tribune Media which will give them access to over 70% of major US cities and I doubt Trump’s FCC will stop them.

    • boatboy_srq

      If there is a database of their advertisers, using it to voice displeasure via power-of-the-purse might work. Trouble is radio broadcasting is comparatively cheap, and it will take someone better than myself to listen and compile the lists.

    • Joe in PA

      And Salon said “far-right websites”…hell, Sinclair is the same thing. FFS. 🙁

    • Adam King

      Their power in on the rise.

    • Nowhereman

      There’s about 175 of them. I just looked them up and was surprised to see so many in California. I hope they are getting flak from their viewers.

    And this Nazi is doing this on conservative Sinclair Broadcasting. Repulsed.

  • Tawreos

    If people that are actually from Africa are causing the trouble we can deport those folks, but if the problems are caused by Americans then we can do things with legislation. Things like making it more difficult to get guns everywhere instead of certain places. We can stop cutting programs that make sure people get the education they need to get ahead in life. There are lots of things we can do legislatively to help change the actions of Americans. Or did you just want to put down black people as savages that don’t know any better?

  • bkmn

    Just shy of wearing a complete Klan uniform.

    • Tawreos

      I wouldn’t be so sure he isn’t, just because he doesn’t show up there doesn’t mean he doesn’t work there.

      • Joe in PA

        How about we just go with without the gun and without that symbol of white patriarchal oppression.

        (he’s gross)

        • Phillip in L.A.

          ok by me

      • Boreal

        I personally find him to be repulsive on all levels.

        • Phillip in L.A.

          You may then look away while he strips

          • Boreal

            Look away? I don’t even want to be in the same vicinity with someone who mass murdered people unless they are frying him in the electric chair.

    • KnownDonorDad

      He looks like something out of American Horror Story.

      What is Chicago’s signature cocktail?

    • Treant

      Usually, they say “Detroit.”

      • Joe in PA

        I think that changed when Obama became president. 🙁

        I’m surprised he didn’t say “San Francisco values”.

        Arrrghhh.

    The Phoenix John Brown Gun Club sent a ‘community defense contingent’ to a Make America Great Again rally at the Arizona state capitol, image via Redneck Revolt’s website.

    Membership in left-leaning gun groups has jumped under President Donald Trump, just as militia membership dramatically rose during his predecessor’s presidency, reported the New York Daily News.

    The National African-American Gun Association added 500 new members within two days after a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville left a counter-protester dead, and the group went from four chapters to 45 in the past year.

    The national Liberal Gun Club has roughly doubled its paid membership since the election, to about 5,500, and the LGBTQ-oriented Pink Pistols groups also added members.

    Suck it up nazis.

    • Treant

      Good. Left-wingers buying guns means that gun restrictions might be talked about in today’s Congress.

      • Jmdintpa

        Until we see gangs of armed black men open carry, in camouflage matching tshirts, roaming the streets under the guise of “protecting the streets” like those faith keeper etc groups they wont do nothing. The minute that starts showing up well then watch how fast these white gun rednecks start demanding action.

    • Pip

      There have been armed liberals this whole time. Big difference is we’re not ammosexuals that feel the need to fetishize guns.

    • Alexander Stallwitz

      After all, the second amendment applies to everyone and since the gun right advocates want anyone with a pulse to be allowed to purchase guns. I say good for them.

    • JCF

      Feh. This sounds like one of those groups created by Russian trolls. “BlackMattersUS” & shit. Designed to DIVIDE the US (including the anti-Trump opposition). Adopting the gun-nut policies of the wingnut right won’t liberate us. It’s a DISTRACTION, that will likely put participants in jail (or worse). We’ve got a Congress to win, State offices to take back, and specific Rethug policies to oppose. [You want to do direct action? Great! Look into what ADAPT http://adapt.org/ did to kill the DrumpfCare bills!]

    White nationalists like those that marched in Charlottesville in August pose a greater danger to America’s national security than conflicts in which the U.S. is fighting the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, say U.S. troops.

    In a new poll of 1,131 active-duty soldiers conducted by The Military Times after the August “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, 30 percent of respondents ranked white nationalists as a more significant danger to national security than Syria and Iraq. They put the danger from those conflicts at 27 percent and 17 percent respectively.

    The Charlottesville rally drew members of the Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazis, which the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) says can be fairly described as white nationalists. The SPLC’s research shows hate groups in the U.S. grew 17 percent from 2014 to 2016.

    Of those who responded to the poll, more than 60 percent said they support calling in the National Guard or reserves to control rallies like Charlottesville, which left one counter-protester dead and more than 19 injured.

    Some respondents also had concerns about white nationalists in the ranks of the military. Close to 42 percent of the non-white servicemen and women who took part in the poll said they had witnessed white nationalists in America’s military. Just 18 percent of white respondents said the same.

    Those who answered the poll were 76 percent white, eight percent Hispanic, nine percent African American, two percent Asian and five percent were made up of other ethnicities.

    Re: The blatant othering.

    African-Americans are not “Black Africans”.

    First, they’re Americans. Period.

    Second, ‘racially’ and ethnically they’re a unique population that originated in the Americas due to the importation of Africans as slaves.

  • KnownDonorDad

    Nazis gonna Nazi.

  • Howard Roark

    Yes, the right wing is full of bigots. Yes, white people do a lot of crime, too.

    But, the facts of African American crime are staggering, and can’t be brushed away by simple accusations of bigotry. Only 6% of the American population is African American males between the ages of 16 – 40, yet they account for 45% of violent crime, mostly within their own communities.

    What is the cause of this? The destruction of the black family, lacking father figures? What caused that? A welfare system that encourages couples not to get married? Or, is it a cultural rejection of education?

    I think black crime is the single most significant reason that white people choose not to live near black communities. This causes social segregation and then bigotry, maybe.

    Stable families, black and white, need to be encouraged. Children need home discipline not to turn to crime and to value education and work ethic. This is not going to come from the schools.

    • Albert Ross

      Atlas bugged.

    • SkokieGuy [ChicagoAdjacentGuy]

      Or, is it a cultural rejection of education?

      Or maybe an unfair school funding system that has black kids in inner cities being taught in hallways with peeling paint, no supplies, no air conditioning and massive class sizes vs. suburban schools where kids receive free laptops, smaller classes sizes, have arts, music, etc. etc.?

      Maybe its structural racism that arrests black males at staggeringly high numbers for crimes (marijuana possession), even though they use at lower rates than whites?

      Maybe its our criminal justice system, where affordable bail for non violent crimes means that 70% of people in jail are simply too poor to afford bail?

      I could go on, but your simplistic explanation smacks of a serious lack of education on issues affecting poor (not just black) communities. Considering this is your first Disqus comment ever, I question who / what I am responding to.

      • Karl Dubhe

        I was going to say that people should go see the movie “Hidden Figures” again. Especially if they want to say that black people didn’t value education. Heck, read the book; you should see the footnotes in it.

        • It is a very well written book. What I particularly enjoyed what how she explained just how pervasive racism was during this time period. Many people reading her book are to young to remember Jim Crow Laws.

      • ….

        • JNK

          This is some of the dumbest sh^t, I have ever read. And the funniest part is you have no idea how condescending your comment actually is to poor people in general, and black people in particular. I will repeat myself. The drug war is the most destructive force in the lives of poor blacks, as well as poor whites. It is responsible for high crime rates in the black community. Remember when Italians were gunning each other down in the streets over Whiskey? Then prohibition ended…

    • joe ho

      lol.

      You forgot the most important reason of all.

      Institutionalized racism. That makes it much harder for black individuals to escape the cycle of poverty and inferior educational opportunities.

      Black children also internalize that racism and develop feelings of inferiority and alienation just as LGBTs internalize the culture’s homophobia.

      When black children are given a series of dolls to arrange on a scale from bad to good, they put the dark dolls at the bad end and the white dolls at the good end. That’s how deeply racism is rooted in our society. And how destructive it is in the personality development in POC.

      Too bad that you and your superficial analysis which is essentially blaming the victim are part of the problem.

      • Howard Roark

        Institutionalized racism is a huge problem, agreed. But, we are talking about black crime here. Prior to 1960, institutionalized racism still occurred in America, probably worse than today. Yet, the black crime rate was not staggering back then. Why? Because there were stable black families with fathers present that provided ethical guidance to the kids.

        I don’t think institutionalized racism, as awful as it is, has caused black crime. I think it is the destruction of the black family.

        • JNK

          Are you people really this clueless. The rise in black crime, mirrors the rise in the failed and destructive WAR ON DRUGS. If you don’t want all drugs legalized, I really don’t care what else you have to say on the issues of black crime and incarceration.

          • LeeCMH

            Especially with the aforementioned double standard of our law enforcement.

            The so-called war on drugs has a strong racist element.

        • JNK

          A moralistic idiot spews bullshit. Do you know how adult whites from the suburbs sit around and laugh about those halcyon days when they smoked pot and were slackers…then they got it together and became the yuppies they were always meant to be? Well, if they had lived in an urban setting where STOP AND FRISK got them caught up in the prison system as teens…it wouldn’t seem so funny. The criminalization of young black men…plus violent turf wars over who gets the best drug selling spots are responsible for at least 90% of the crime in black communities. END THE F^^^KING DRUG WAR.

        • joe ho

          But the economy has changed a lot since the 1960s and earlier. It’s harder for white families to support their families, now requiring most families to have both parents working. The effect of institutionalized racism on POC is thereby amplified. Plus, the fact that the number of good paying jobs that don’t require higher education has significantly diminished. And then there’s the draconian long-term incarceration of black males for drug charges. Those are all results of the institutionalized racism that still poisons our country.

        • LeeCMH

          Black people did not destroy their own families!

          Institutionalized racism did.

          The two issues are not mutually independent.

      > What is the cause of this?

      You aren’t very smart or imaginative. There are a few thousand other reasons you left off, like “Being considered white peoples’ property until 50 years ago” and “Because even black congresswoman are compared to strippers by Dotard Jr.”

      So, that’s what I think. Black problems are caused by white people. Guess we disagree! Either of us could be right but only one of us is a repugnant, repulsive bigot.

        Needs more cowbell.

    • BeaverTales

      You forgot to mention the hundreds of years of racism and bigotry that devastated the black community, black families and black opportunities to escape from the cycle of poverty started by racists.

      Jim Crow existed well into my lifetime and systemic racism is still a problem….Only blacks can legally get murdered by cops just for being in the wrong neighborhood.

      White people are not innocent bystanders in the problem of black crime.

    • Cuberly Deux

      “I think black crime is the single most significant reason that white people choose not to live near black communities. This causes social segregation and then bigotry, maybe.”

      It’s considerably more complicated than that.

      To help you along, in your growing understanding, I’d like to pioint out two episodes of a cable TV program you may find illuminating.

      The show is called Adam Ruins Everything, it’s on TruTV. If you have cable you should be able to on-demand watch the two episodes I’m referring to.

      Adam Ruins The Suburbs
      Adam Ruins The War on Drugs

      You can also watch them online by signing up for a free TruTV account at their website.

      http://www.trutv.com/full-episodes/adam-ruins-everything/2124088/index.html

      No joke, check them out. I think it may aid in your understanding that communities were designed as self segregating entities very early on. How that has impacted wealth distribution and access to opportunity has been an ever mushrooming issue we’re still dealing with.

    I’m so sick of these racist fucks.

    Oh so gun laws should be passed — only for blacks.

      Because mass shootings with powerful automatic weapons are never committed by white men.

      • LeeCMH

        And if a white man with a machine gun murders, he is just an isolated crazy person, not representative of the hatred they all share.

        Not a terrorist. He was a good old boy who made a bad choice.

        Edit: I forgot about Rick Wiles’ accusation the Vegas machine gun shooter was actually working with the Secret Gay Nazi group.
