Racial mob violence rocks the Wisconsin State Fair
While Barry Soetoro was dreaming of one day being prime minister of Indonesia, America was a very different country and Milwaukee was a very different city. Each August of my youth was filled with eager anticipation of our family's trip to the Wisconsin State Fair in Milwaukee (actually West Allis). I have such clear memories of great concerts featuring The Fifth Dimension, Herb Alpert and The Tijuana Brass and Liberace. There were those world famous cream puffs, salt water taffy, bratwurst, corn on the cob (hot off the grill and dipped in real butter) and an exotic new taste sensation called the corn dog. As with any fair there were rides to suit every taste and games of skill and chance on the midway where valuable prizes (how about a goldfish swimming in a beer stein) could be won.
In one of the exhibition buildings at the fair there was a miraculous display from a water softening company. For many years I marveled at the sight of a giant water faucet floating in mid-air as it poured and unending stream of crystal clear water into a huge barrel. When I was 9 or 10 years old, I stuck my hand into the stream of water only to discover that there was a clear pipe inside the gushing water feeding that same water from the barrel back up to the (no longer) magic faucet. Things were never the same after that disappointment although I still watched with amazement at the younger kids who still believed in the magic faucet.
Fast forward to 2011, America is a far different country now and Milwaukee is a far different city. The wide eyed youngsters attending the opening night of this year's Wisconsin State Fair witnessed an exhibition which will scar their memories well into old age. From WTMJ Newsradio 620:
Witnesses' accounts claim everything from dozens to hundreds of young black people beating white people as they left State Fair Thursday night.
Authorities have not given official estimates of the number of people involved in the attacks.
"It looked like they were just going after white guys, white people," said Norb Roffers of Wind Lake in an interview with Newsradio 620 WTMJ. He left the State Fair Entrance near the corner of South 84th Street and West Schlinger Avenue in West Allis.
"They were attacking everybody for no reason whatsoever."
"It was 100% racial," claimed Eric, an Iraq war veteran from St. Francis who says young people beat on his car.
"I saw them grab this white kid who was probably 14 or 15 years old. They just flung him into the road. They just jumped on him and started beating him. They were kicking him. He was on the ground. A girl picked up a construction sign and pushed it over on top of him. They were just running by and kicking him in the face."
Milwaukee Police said that their officers were sent to State Fair Park for "complaints of battery, fighting and property damage due to a large, unruly crowd."
A police sergeant told TODAY'S TMJ4's Melissa McCrady that the number of calls describing injuries are still coming in, so they could not give an accurate number of people who were injured.
That sergeant explained that some injuries were serious, and local hospitals were attending to the injured.
As of early Friday morning, Milwaukee Police said they had no one in custody.
One woman told police that she was sitting in her car with a window down when some teenagers reached through her window and started attacking her
This is far worse than the racially motivated attacks at last year's Iowa State Fair during "beat whitey night." The dramatic and unprecedented rise in black on white violence across America has yet to be addressed by Mr. Obama or any of the leadership in Washington who are far more concerned with attacking Tea Party members as racists and terrorists than they are in facing any of the real issues which are tearing our country apart.
According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel local elected leaders have weighed in on this political "third rail":
Alds. Bob Donovan and Joe Dudzik issued a joint statement in reaction to the violence: "Let's face it, it also has much to do with a deteriorating African American culture in our city. Are large groups of Hispanics or Hmong going out in large mobs and violently attacking whites? No."
This incident follows the ugly Fourth of July weekend attacks in Milwaukee.
About 60 young people beat and robbed a smaller group that had been watching fireworks from Kilbourn Reservoir Park. The injured people were white, the attackers were African-American, witnesses said.
If Mr. Obama is truly concerned about our nation it is time (actually well past time) that he uses his bully's pulpit to address this growing wave of racial violence that is threatening to fundamentally transform America. Of course, I wouldn't hold my breath as this is the man who has whipped up crowds with lines like "if they bring a knife, we bring a gun." The post-racial presidency of Barack Hussein Obama has ushered in a new era of racial hatred and violence that will last long after his presidency has been consigned to the dust-bin of history, which can come none too soon if our nation is to survive .
Today I will be joining our friend Lloyd Marcus and the Tea Party Express at a rally in Kenosha, Wisconsin, where my fellow racists and terrorists will once again join together in peace and friendship to support our vision of a free and prosperous America where all of our citizens can attend Independence Day Fireworks, Fairs and other activities without fear of mob attack. I hope someone takes pictures of the event to send to John F. Kerry in lieu of press coverage.
