Why defend the backstabbers?

Posted: May 20, 2023 by navygrade36bureaucrat in race card

The day that Jordan Neely, my Google News search gave me a million articles about how crazy it is that a white man can literally kill a black man in cold blood and get away with it. Applying my normal rule of “Wait 72 hours till the truth comes out,” and low and behold, we get some facts:

  • Daniel Penny gets charged, but not the black or Hispanic men that helped him
  • Multiple eyewitnesses say Penny didn’t do anything until Neely threatened to kill people
  • The news media plays lots of clips of Jordan Neely doing Michael Jackson impressions
  • As always we get protests and people comparing Neely to George Floyd

If you want a good summary, watch the Actual Justice Warrior break it all down:

Likely Penny’s only crime was being white and making the mistake of thinking he should stop Jordan Neely from potentially killing someone. Anyone who has sat through a self-defense class knows that the first rule of self-defense is to get yourself out of the situation if you can, because things can go south quickly. It can take seconds to go from begging for food to stabbing someone to death, and given you can’t exit the subway, that would frighten any normal person.

Anymore though, I say abandon the cities that want to live like this.

Why bother defending others in these situations? I bet plenty of the people riding the subway voted for the current NYC mayor. Sure, they might testify on behalf of Penny, but I doubt it, since NYC has a track record of intimidating witnesses to make a case work. Penny defended a bunch of people that actively voted against his own interests, and those people will try to send him to jail. These people are backstabbers. They are happy to let Daniel Penny defend them while they vote for people that will punish and destroy Daniel Penny for taking those actions.

Sadly, that makes Penny more of a sucker. Anyone that is living in NYC and not either working to actively change it or leaving quickly is a sucker, because if the local government has become this tyrannical, you can’t put your head in the sand anymore.

This is why Virginians fought hard on the school board front. Many of us were happy to let the school board run without much oversight, until we realized just how bad it was. We pushed back, hard, and its changing for the better. Most of the time, local government does a good enough job that it’s just not worth the time and effort to root out the corruption that exists. When it gets to the point where the government will happily throw you in jail in a sham trial, then you either fight to change it or leave.

Daniel Penny should have never been on the subway, but since he was, he should have simply let Jordan Neely stab or injure someone first, since his first thoughts should have been “I’m a white guy trying to stop a black man, how is NYC going to view that?”

Alas my first round pick is in the possession of Washington who got it as part of the Frank Howard trade that got me one game shy of the playoffs but he certainly did his job, but today I pay the piper
