Early on August 9, 2020, a 17-year-old was killed, while an off-duty police officer received life-threatening injuries in the aftermath of at least 20 people getting shot when a fight kicked off at a cookout with hundreds of people in Southeast Washington.
According to D.C. police, at least three shooters opened fire from different locations around 12:30 a.m. at Dubois Place in the Greenway neighborhood. The incident caused party attendees to flee the scene and look for cover.
The dead teenager was identified as Christopher Brown.
The unidentified off-duty police officer, who was attending the party, received critical injuries and was “fighting for her life,” D.C. Police Chief Peter Newsham reported. Law enforcement officials said that the officer was shot in the neck. According to an initial report, 21 people were reportedly shot but it was then determined that one of the victims suffering injuries did not receive a bullet wound.
This party and the subsequent shooting raised tough question about large events that violate Mayor Muriel E. Bowser’s order that prohibits gatherings of groups larger than 50 people.
Over 115 people have been killed in D.C. in 2020, which marks a 17 percent increase during the same timeframe in 2019.
D.C. is one of the most anti-gun jurisdictions and yet gun-related violence continues to occur. In addition, lax policing has contributed to the city’s perennial crime problems.
Local policymakers in urban centers across the nation will have to realize that their policies are making their jurisdictions much less desirable to live in. Unfortunately, progressivism clouds politicians’ better judgment on almost every occasion.
The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters
Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.
Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters.
Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits.
He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.
The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:
Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…
By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.
For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats.
Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another.
In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election.
Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
