The creative journalist formerly known as Touré Neblett had some recent self-pwnage with some help with leftist rag Huffington Post!
It all started innocently enough. The creative journalist formerly known as Touré Neblett was simply moving through his paranoid delusional world where he sees a racist under every bed, behind every corner, and within every citizen wishing to be free and have thingys we used to call “rights”. This time it was blathering about NRA chief Wayne LaPierre’s recent article. In it, LaPierre wrote,
“After Hurricane Sandy, we saw the hellish world that the gun prohibitionists see as their utopia. Looters ran wild in south Brooklyn. There was no food, water or electricity. And if you wanted to walk several miles to get supplies, you better get back before dark, or you might not get home at all.”
For English writing people, note the lack of capitalization of the word “south”. Apparently, they don’t teach this in the creative journalism classes. Or, it is possible that the creative journalist formerly known as Touré Neblett is simply to simple to understand proper names from directional words. It’s difficult to determine, ignorance or stupidity? You make the call.
Of course, the creative journalist formerly known as Touré Neblett saw the racism, obvious only in his paranoid delusional world, and reacted like a well conditioned subject of Pavlov, with predictable Tourette-like utterances. (I just had to work that in!)
“Perhaps we know Wayne LaPierre is wrong about good guys and bad guys and guns. I’m sure many of us find him hard to trust given his obvious use of racial demonization to spread fear that will lead to buying guns. In his recent editorial in the Daily Caller, he spoke of supposedly rampant crime and murder in some place he called South Brooklyn in the days after Hurricane Sandy.
Hmm, “a place called South Brooklyn“. Is it possible someone clued the creative journalist formerly known as Touré Neblett in on the capitalization rule about proper names of places? And, then he decided to just go with his presumptions? Hmm, stupid or ignorant, but definitely an enemy of truth. The creative journalist formerly known as Touré Neblett, continued.
Put aside that no reporting bears that out, I live in Brooklyn, and I have for a long time, and there is no place referred to as South Brooklyn. But I think it’s safe to say that when he says that, much of the country envisions a place clogged with black people.
Here, we see the creative journalist formerly known as Touré Neblett, is still in his paranoid delusional world. Sadly, this is a world of woeful ignorance. Apparently, the creative journalist formerly known as Touré Neblett doesn’t check what he’s saying before blathering his stupidity. I’m not sure why he thinks people would automatically envision a place “clogged with black people” when hearing the words “south Brooklyn”, but recall, the creative journalist formerly known as Touré Neblett lives in a world very different than the rest of us. But, a quick search on the internets would have, indeed, bore out the reporting, and even mentioning “south Brooklyn”. Courtesy of HuffPo…….
“It’s getting dark, and it’s real dangerous out here — that’s why there’s a cop on every block,” one NYPD officer told HuffPost Crime. “You could get your stuff stolen.” […]
Dena Wells, 39, a resident of Ocean Towers, had had enough after watching the melee.
“People are turning on each other — they’re attacking each other,” she said, shaking her head. “Even when there’s no disaster, this building is disastrous. But after the hurricane, it just got crazy.”
Yep, no reporting, no place called south Brooklyn. Brooklyn is prolly on the South Pole so it can’t have a south part of the town.
