|Hunter S. Thompson wrote about the horrors of 71 percent black Washington D.C. in his 1972 book "Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72". Weird that as blacks leave D.C., crime/rape/murder rates drop...|
After what one resident said sounded like a "running gunbattle" in Northeast early Friday, police have found evidence of multiple shots fired but no victims, no definitive witnesses.
"It sounded like Vietnam."
That's how one Northeast D.C. resident is describing the flurry of gunshots this morning that rocked their neighborhood to the core. "It seemed it was some kind of running gunbattle anywhere from 10 to 20 shots," says Anthony Duran, a resident.
It happened early Friday morning in the 2200 block of Perry Street NE, shutting down the road for hours.
Police are only saying multiple shots were fired. ABC7 saw at least 29 markers as they located shell casings and other pieces of evidence.
Some residents say they saw activity, but nothing definitive.
One resident who declined to give ABC7 his name, said he had to rent a car because the shooter put a bullet through his vehicle and police wouldn't let him move it:
Police say at this point they have no victim, so if anybody was hit, they haven't showed up at a hospital yet.
Northeast D.C. happens to home to primarily black people, who participate in the type of violence, crime, and mayhem that once ensured the city had a sizable black majority (it reached 71 percent black into the later portions of the 20th century).
While the Vietnam War still raged, Hunter S. Thompson was in Washington D.C. to write,“Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail ’72" -- and just mere steps outside the actual Capitol building a war zone of a much different kind was found.
Life runs fast and mean in this town. It’s like living in an armed camp, a condition of constant fear. Washington is 72 percent black; the shrinking white population has backed itself into an elegant-looking ghetto in the Northwest quadrant of town – which seems to have made things a lot easier for the black marauders who have turned places like chic Georgetown and once-stylish Capitol Hill into hellishly paranoid Fear Zones.
Washington Post columnist Nicholas Van Hoffman recently pointed that the Nixon/Mitchell Administration- seemingly obsessed with restoring Law and Order in the land, at almost any cost – seems totally unconcerned that Washington, D.C., has become the “Rape Capital of the World.”
One of the most dangerous areas in town is the once-fashionable district known as Capitol Hill.
This is the section immediately surrounding the Senate/Congress office buildings, a very convenient place to live for the thousands of young clerks, aides and secretaries who work up there at the pinnacle. The peaceful, tree-shaded streets on Capitol Hill look anything but menacing; brick colonial townhouses with cut-glass doors and tall windows looking out on the Library of Congress and the Washington Monument…
When I came here to look for a house or apartment, about a month ago, I check around town and figured Capitol Hill was the logical place to locate.
“Good God, man!” said my friend from the liberal New York Post. “You can’t live there! It’s a goddamn jungle!”
Crime figures from “The District” are so heinous that they embarrass even J. Edgar Hoover. Rape is said to be up 80 percent this year over 1970, and a recent rash of murders (averaging one every day) has mashed the morale of the local police to a new low. Of the 250 murders this year, only 36 have been solved… and the Washington Post says the cops are about to give up.
Meanwhile, things like burglaries, street muggings and random assaults are so common that they are no longer considered news. The Washington Evening Star, one of the city’s three dailies, is located in the Southeast District – a few blocks from the Capitol – in a windowless building that looks like the vault at Fort Knox. Getting into the Star to see somebody is almost as difficult as getting into the White House.
Visitors are scrutinized by hired cops and ordered to fill out forms that double as “hall passes.” So many Star reporters have been mugged, raped and menaced that they come and in fast taxis, like people running the gauntlet – fearful, with good reason, of every sudden footfall between the street and the bright-lit safety of the newsroom guard station….
Getting beaten in Congress is one thing – even if you get beaten a lot – but when you slink of out of the Senate chamber with your tail between your legs and then have to worry about getting mugged, stomped, or raped in the Capitol parking lot by a trio of renegade Black Panthers… well, it tends to bring you down a bit, and warp your Liberal Instincts.
There is no way to avoid “racist undertones” here. The simple heavy truth is that Washington is mainly a Black City, and that most of the violent crime is therefore committed by blacks – not always against whites, but often enough to make the relatively wealthy white population very nervous about random social contacts with their black fellow citizens.
After only 10 days in this town I have noticed the Fear Syndrome clouding even my own mind: I find myself ignoring black hitchhikers, and every time I do it I wonder, “Why the fuck did you do that?” And I tell myself, “Well, I’ll pick up the next one I see.” And sometimes I do, but not always…
Hunter S. Thompson detailed the reason (the genesis) this nefarious liberal plot needed to be kick-started in 1972... oddly, it was Disingenuous White Liberal writer Matthew Yglesisas - who was kicked around by blacks in 2011 - who shows how this plot will ultimately end.
Gentrification, the elimination of crime (because, as Hunter S. Thompson showed, only blacks commit crime in D.C.), and the return of high property values to a city where blacks are little more than fillers in "service class":
service class, which spans workers low-wage, low-skill jobs in fields like food service and preparation, retail sales, clerical and administrative positions, and the like.
Seven of the 10 top service class tracts are located within historically black neighborhoods within D.C. city limits, including four tracts in southeast and three in the northeast D.C.To paraphrase Hunter S. Thompson, "why the fuck are white people in Washington D.C. attempting to implement a plot to remove black people from the city?"
Because they no longer feel guilty about locking the door when a black bum comes up to their car (never would they dare consider giving refuge to a black hitchhiker!), nor do they care about giving change to the next one they see.
After all, that's what Prince George's County is for... a dumping ground the violent blacks of Washington D.C.
