Is this a valid prediction?
Well, everyone knows that the United States has at appx 2.3 million the largest per-capita prison population on Planet Earth.
The US prison population has roughly quadrupled since the early-1980s, and this incredible uptick in incarceration rates has coincided with a net decrease in urban criminality nationwide.
Anyone who denies this trend is either: 1) an advocate of minority rights, or : 2) suicidal to the core.
That a vast, institution-wide system for locking up mostly young ICBMs ("Inner City Black Males") could translate into a net reduction in violent crime nation-wide, is like kryptonite to the do-gooder liberal wishful thinkers embodied by Warren Wilhelm Jr. (aka Billy de Blasio).
Even though NYC's first and last Jewish mayor Michael Bloomberge sunk 650$M of his own money into improving NYC for all, including a solid 30 million bucks spent explicitly on a program designed to uplift the lives of "poor black and latino men of NYC," the fact remains that wholesale denial of group differences in Ability and Criminality is a sick trait that persists among our elites on both the Left and the supposed "right" of the political spectrum.
Here's where it gets interesting:
The New York Times' own Bottled Water Girl, Dasani, played a center-stage role in Wednesday's inauguration of Billy de Blasio (um, Warren Wilhelm Jr.), in City Hall Plaza.
De Blasio's idiot appointee for "NYC Public Advocate," a one feisty Laetitia James, strode up to the the podium with young Dasani the bottled water girl in tow, and declared :
The whole anti-progress anti-white anti-civilization tone of this whole stupid inauguration was so stupid and so over the top, that even the vermin at the NYT condemned it :
NYT Calls Deblasio Speechers "Graceless and Smug" :
"Mayor De Blasio Looks Forward"
From the article :
"Mayor Bill de Blasio took charge of New York City on Wednesday with a forceful Inaugural Address and pledged to begin the head-on attack on “the inequality crisis” as he had promised. He repeated the bullet points from his campaign, but insisted that progressive talking would now give way to progressive governing, without dilution or dithering. “We won’t wait,” Mr. de Blasio said again and again. “We’ll do it now.”Mr. de Blasio’s words carried an indictment: the city had become unjust and unlivable for too many of the poor and working class. But he tempered this complaint, as he should have, with a New Year’s Day call to civic unity and optimism. “We will succeed as One City,” he said.Too bad the speakers on stage with him didn’t get the unity part, marring the event with backward-looking speeches both graceless and smug. Worst among them, but hardly alone, was the new public advocate, Letitia James, who used her moment for her own head-on attack: on the 12 years of Mayor Michael Bloomberg. In doing so, she made a prop of a 12-year-old girl named Dasani, who had to hold the Bible and Ms. James’s hand as Ms. James called for a government “that cares more about a child going hungry than a new stadium or a new tax credit for a luxury development.”Dasani was profiled in a recent series of articles in The Times illustrating how bad things get for homeless families in the shelter system. Ms. James turned her into Exhibit A of an Inauguration Day prosecution: the People v. Mayor Bloomberg. So did the pastor whose invocation likened New York to a “plantation,” and Harry Belafonte, who strangely laid the problem of America’s crowded prisons at the feet of the former mayor, an utterly bogus claim, while saying Mr. Bloomberg shared responsibility for the nation’s “deeply Dickensian justice system.”
You know things have to be extreme-leftward when even the vermin at the New York Times are saying it's so !
And don't forget : it was Andrea Elliot at the NYT who created the whole Dasani-the-bottled-water girl in the first place.
Could it be that the competitive altruism psychopaths at Amerika's newspaper of record are starting to finally understand that low-ability people having giant broods of 8 or 10 chirren is a very, Very, VERY bad thing indeed for society?
