In the moments prior the attack, Williams offered to escort an
elderly white woman named Mary Fuller to her car. Fuller was worried
about the tumult outside in the parking lot (Williams later testified
that the teenagers were throwing gang signs and “putting up a ruckus”)
and felt unsafe. Williams walked Fuller out to her vehicle, got her
safely inside, and then shouted at the crowd of teenagers to disperse.
Seconds later, he was “sucker punched” from behind and a group of
dozens of assailants descended on him, swinging wildly. The entire video
can be seen here.
This is not an isolated incident in Memphis. The entire city has
become a hotbed for black mob violence. One of the rare instances of
such violence to receive something resembling mainstream media
attention, in fact, happened at a Memphis Kroger.
But that attack, as shocking as it was, was just the tip of the
iceberg. Such violence is, in a word, commonplace: popping up in schools, apartment complexes, malls, skating rinks, shopping centers, and now gas stations.
Speaking of his ordeal, Orrden Williams revealed that he had a gun in
the car that he fled to in order to escape further harm from the
mob—one that he claimed he was close to using. There “would have been a
couple of mommas who’s children wouldn’t have come home,” he said. He
then added that they would have “justifiably” not come home.
Justifiable. That word has special resonance in contemporary America,
especially where it concerns shootings in self defense. The same
mainstream media that has been creating national crises out of routine
and perfectly justifiable instances of self-defense, from
Trayvon Martin to Mike Brown, the same media that has been front-paging
local crime blotter stories whenever it can find an instance where a
white cop shoots a black man, justified or not—that same media is
largely silent on attacks like the one Williams suffered.
Lawlessness and violence are epidemic in American blacks, and independent journalists such as Colin Flaherty and Paul Kersey
have been able to make a cottage industry of cataloging it because the
MSM ignores it so reliably. There are hundreds upon hundreds of
instances of black mob violence that have occurred in the past few
years, but only a tiny fraction of them ever received attention from the
big names in news. If these patterns were reported responsibly, they
would of course go a long way in explaining why encounters between
police officers and young black males are often so tense and high stakes
and why they often turn violent. But the MSM is content to keep pushing
its lies and half-truths in service of The Narrative, for reasons
covered here and elsewhere.
For the time being, then, black mob violence will keep happening, and
the powers that be will continue to turn a blind eye towards it. And
another of Orrden William’s comments—the prediction that, if these
attacks aren’t stopped “Someone’s going to die”—will continue to be
vindicated, over and over again.
