Protection Rackets: The Latest Trend

     You’ve heard about the black racialists demanding “reparations,” haven’t you? Translated from the Thuggese, that amounts to “Pay us and maybe we’ll stop trashing your cities.” They might as well walk into your store, look around appraisingly, and murmur “Nice place you’ve got here. Be a shame if anything were to happen to it.” Well, except that they’re seldom that grammatical.

     We’re all familiar with racialist racketeering by now. It started with Jesse Jackson and hasn’t petered out yet. But change is a constant, and the latest trend might just surprise you:

     BALTIMORE (WBFF) – Tyree Moorehead has spent years in Baltimore’s streets.

     If you don’t know his name, drive through the city and you’ll see his mark.

     No shoot zones, the sidewalk, streetside sacred space where, after murder, there should be no more killing there.

     He recognizes even that hasn’t slowed Baltimore’s bloodshed and now he eyes what he believes is a breakthrough.

     “I can relate to the shooters, guess what they want? They want money.

     His idea, pay killers to stop killing, his background he says is part of the currency.

     Extortionists gonna extort, I suppose. Black extortionists will find a way to link their demands to “systemic racism,” or “white privilege,” or what have you. But the essence of the game remains the same: Danegeld pure and simple, though in Tyree Moorehead’s case practiced on a city-by-city scale rather than nationwide.

     For a criminal to point a gun at you and say “Your money or your life” is plainly armed robbery, and punishable by a long prison term. Why Moorehead’s sort of “proposal” isn’t itself a criminal act, I cannot imagine. He’s positioned himself as the lead negotiator for a protection racket, even if the racket hasn’t yet incorporated or nominated a capo.

     In a sane era, this man would already be back behind bars, but ours is not a sane era.

    Once you start paying the DaneGeld, you’ll never be rid of the Dane.

  1. Bravo, William – just what I was thinking (and, I have ancestors on BOTH sides of the racket, being both Irish/Scottish/English, and Viking, as well).
