WorldNetDaily Now Peddling White Nationalism
Whirled Nuts Daily goes full bore White Nationalist — reporting on black crime is a favored feature at most white supremacist sites, from Stormfront to the Council of Conservative Citizens to VDARE. WND has now stepped across a line to join them in overt racism by prominently reporting crimes committed by blacks in sensationalist manner while not doing the same for crimes created by other ethnicities and groups.
‘WND,’ the editor’s note says, ‘considers it racist not to report racial abuse solely because of the skin color of the perpetrators or victims.’
Flaherty is a marginal media figure whose main contribution to American literature is a 2011 self-published memoir titled Redwood to Deadwood: A 53-year Old Dude Hitchhikes Around America Again. He caught WND’s attention with 2012’s White Girl Bleed a Lot: The Return of Racial Violence and How the Media Ignore It, also self-published, which argues that ‘black-on-white’ attacks have gone through the roof and the only reason you don’t know about it is because the ‘liberal media’ has colluded to keep the story under wraps.
Flaherty catalogues episodes of ‘black mob violence’ with the obsessive care of a true connoisseur. Though he began by writing exclusively about black-on-white attacks, he has lately branched out into covering black-on-black violence, though he rarely bothers to note the race of the victim and always mentions that of the perpetrators.
His most recent article was about a ‘black mob’ attack on University of Wisconsin football star Montee Ball, a young black man whose chances of winning the Heisman Trophy appear to have waned in the wake of head injuries inflicted by five youths who attacked him in August. (Actually, as Flaherty writes it, it’s not Ball who’s the victim, but the Heisman Trophy itself.)
As it happens, the ‘liberal media’ has had much to say about the subject of violent ‘flash mobs’ consisting of mostly black youths – particularly after several members of a such a group were arrested for attacking white people at 2011’s Wisconsin State Fair in Milwaukee.
The New York Times, which WND frequently holds up as a leading light of the ‘liberal media’ conspiracy, has repeatedly covered (for instance, here and here) violent flash mobs consisting of black youths whose targets were primarily white people and their property.
