WND's Flaherty Still Getting His Race-Baiting Wrong
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Colin Flaherty is still spreading falsehoods in his race-baiting at WorldNetDaily.

In his Oct. 15 WND article, Flaherty peddles yet another story of "black mob violence" by highlighting what's called the "knockout game," chortling that the perpetrators messed with "The Wrong Guy," which resulted in one of them being shot dead. But as we've pointed out when Flaherty has done this in the past, the "knockout game" is not a "black thing," it's a product of a certin inner-city adolescent culture.

Then, in an Oct. 16 article, Flaherty turned his attention to University of Wisconsin football player Montee Ball, who "has not been the same since five black men attacked him in August, sending him to the emergency room with head injuries," meaning that "Black mob violence has claimed another victim: This time, the Heisman Trophy. And maybe even a national college football championship."

Well, actually, not so much. Last weekend, Ball ran for a career-high 247 yards and scored three touchdowns, in the process setting a the Big Ten record for career TDs.

But never mind the facts -- Flaherty just wants to fearmonger, declaring that "Black mob violence is a new feature of life at college campuses around the country" with his usual cherry-picked compendium of isolated incidents he's trying to cobble into an "epidemic." He even references a "college black mob violence tour" despite the fact that he identifies no "black mob" roaming from campus to campus across the country beating up people.

And that's why we call it race-baiting, folks.
