But Why Do Bishops Join In?. . . Media Struts Its Amnesia On Waukesha

December 4, 2021 Frontpage No Comments


Last week, in one of the easiest predictions ever, we wrote that members of the entire corporate and elite universe of official opinion would send the terrorist attacks in Waukesha on November 21 down the Memory Hole.
They did.
Not one outlet addressed the massacre’s racist dimension — it was perpetrated by a black career criminal who hated whites — and none dared call it terrorism the way CNN, MSNBC, and every other outlet did regarding the events on January 6, when the only fatality occurred when a Capitol policemen shot an unarmed trespasser.
Remember? “The events on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, January 6, 2021, will be remembered as an act of domestic terrorism against the United States; as a national tragedy; and as a real-life manifestation of online radicalization,” CNN dictated a day later. And they haven’t shut up since.
But the Waukesha murders — six victims and counting as of this writing, plus half a hundred wounded, and eight still hospitalized — disappeared not only from the national media but even from the front page of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, the major local paper in Waukesha this past week.
What’s going on here?
On his first day in office, Joe Biden directed his “national security team” to conduct an evaluation on how to “address domestic terrorism, which has evolved into the most urgent terrorism threat the United States faces today.”
Yet, as his attorney general, Merrick Garland, announced in May, the administration adroitly narrowed the definition of that fluid term in classic racist fashion: “violence incited by white supremacists poses the most dangerous threat to our democracy,” he told a Senate Committee.
So terrorist attacks committed by blacks are of no interest to the guardians of American justice because . . . well, because they don’t fit Garland’s definition. (We note that the Biden administration also ignores the murders of thousands of blacks by blacks every year, as addressed by Pat Buchanan on p. 2A.)
But wait — maybe the media would pay attention to Waukesha if Christians nationwide would follow the leaders of Black Lives Matter, who laid out the template in their nationwide riots of 2020! Why aren’t enraged Christians rioting across the country, egged on by “CLM” — “Christian Lives Matter”? We could extort untold (and unreported) millions from corporations, as well as from bamboozled men and women of goodwill.
We recall that George Floyd’s family was awarded $27 million by the city of Minneapolis. Why can’t families of the dozens of Waukesha victims sue the district attorney who had set a bail of only $1,000 for the terrorist’s most recent crime?
That official is one John Chisholm, Milwaukee County’s “progressive” district attorney. He is one of several radical DA’s who have been elected with unprecedented financial support from George Soros. And Chisholm is pretty cavalier about his disasters. Some years back, he predicted that this lax practice regarding bail would result in murders. As the Washington Free Beacon reports, “Chisholm told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in 2007, ‘Is there going to be an individual I divert, or I put into [a] treatment program, who’s going to go out and kill somebody? You bet. Guaranteed. It’s guaranteed to happen. It does not invalidate the overall approach’.”
So Milwaukee’s version of Merrick Garland is not shocked by the Waukesha Massacre — in fact, the massacre vindicates his “overall approach.” And so far, those identifying with the victims of the Waukesha massacre haven’t gotten the BLM memo. There will be no riots, no El Paso bishops kneeling in front of “Christian Lives Matter” signs. Only sadness, mourning, prayers, wakes, and funerals.
No golden caskets need apply.
We’d better brace ourselves for more.

There They Go Again

“Racism has been part of the social fabric of America since its European colonization. Whether it be the tragic past of the Native Americans, the Mexicans, the Puerto Ricans, or the blacks, the story is one of slavery, peonage, economic exploration, brutal repression, and cultural neglect. All have suffered indignity; most have been uprooted, defrauded, or dispossessed of their lands; and none have escaped one or another form of collective degradation by a powerful majority.” 
“This new economic crisis reveals an unresolved racism that permeates our society’s structures and resides in the hearts of many among the majority.
“Perhaps no single individual is to blame,” they write. “The sinfulness is often anonymous but nonetheless real. The sin is social in nature. . . .”

Brothers And Sisters To Us:
Bishops Pastoral Letter
On Racism, 1979

The authors of the above document admit, in their own text, that the inspiration and philosophical ground for their efforts lay in one of AmChurch’s most disastrous manifestations: “Our words here are an initial response to one of the major concerns which emerged during the consultation on social justice entitled ‘A Call to Action,’ which was part of the U.S. Catholic participation in the national bicentennial,” they write. 
Well, as the scientists say, “GIGO — Garbage In, Garbage Out” — and Call to Action was Marxist Social Justice garbage. But our shepherds persevere! Only whites, they teach, can be racists, and most of us are — of course, the sin is so “subtle” that most of us don’t even know we’re sinning.
Unfortunately, instead of reading the Catechism that appeared thirteen years later, the bishops perpetuated their errors by celebrating the pastoral’s thirtieth anniversary with another one, reaffirming the same anti-white bigotry.
And now, with Waukesha, we see once again proof that the USCCB’s adoption of the Marxist notion of systemic racism, class struggle, and “whites only” racism constitutes a fundamental metaphysical and anthropological contradiction of the Catholic faith.
And yet, not one American bishop, not even the few “good” ones, will renounce this lie, even though it represents the embrace of an ideology that by definition denies the transcendental and embraces instead a materialism of the Marxist variety.
They speak from two sides of their mouth — not necessarily duplicitous, perhaps simply ignorant — but manifesting a cowardly docility towards the spirit of the times because of the lack of both intellectual preparation and rigor, as well as the Cardinal Virtue of fortitude.
The dialectic’s contradictions abound. Look at “Catholic Joe” Biden. While they preach the Eucharist, they openly, publicly, and by an almost unanimous vote, affirm its public desecration.
And bad ideas have very bad consequences. Betraying the faithful by not teaching, by pretending to “represent” in the most craven of material ways the “Church” when acting like the typical grifting NGO, lining up at the trough in Washington to lobby for money and power and position.
Meanwhile, they fail in their true mission, as they describe it themselves.
Consider Waukesha.
In 2016, the USCCB appointed the Ad Hoc Committee Against Racism, with Most Rev. Shelton J. Fabre of Houma-Thibodaux as its chairman.
One would think that Waukesha represents a classic example of a racist crime. So on November 22, we wrote Bishop Fabre’s secretary asking this question of the bishop, stating the facts as we knew them at the time:
“Has His Excellency made any statement about the racist massacre of participants, including five deaths and some two dozen hospitalized, in last night’s Christmas Parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin?”
At press time, we have received no answer.
