Why White People Are Angry
Over the last 6 days, we have been watching the news very closely and to be honest, we are disappointed. Nothing but doom and gloom:
Obama’s gun grab:
Israel poison Palestinian food supplies:
War Crimes: Israeli Planes Spray Crop-killing Chemicals on Gaza Farms
‘Thabet said an estimated 371 acres of farming land in central Gaza and 50 acres of land in eastern Khan Younis have been affected.
Saleh al-Najjar, a farmer from Al-Qarara, said he lost some 7.4 acres of spinach and pea crops as a result of the spraying.
Another farmer, Wael al-Shami, said he lost crops of parsley and beans, which he had planted near the town.’

Did North Korea Detonate a Hydrogen Bomb? Here’s What We Know
“This test is a measure for self-defense the D.P.R.K. has taken to firmly protect the sovereignty of the country and the vital right of the nation from the ever-growing nuclear threat and blackmail by the U.S.-led hostile forces and to reliably safeguard the peace on the Korean Peninsula and regional security,” it said, referring to the North’s formal name, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.’

The execution of Al-Nimr:
Who was Sheik Nimr al-Nimr? A look at the man whose execution rocked the Mideast
‘Al-Nimr was arrested in a shootout with Saudi security forces, who claimed the cleric and those accompanying him had fired at them. Still, the only person injured was Al-Nimr, who was shot in the leg before being apprehended.
His subsequent trial was problematic. He had no access to his lawyers during interrogations; they were also not always informed of trial dates; there was a delay in giving him details on the charges against him, which further hindered his ability to prepare an adequate defense.
The government also accused him of having contacts with Iran, a charge that observers believe was untrue.
“Of course Iran loved his speeches and used him in the media and loved him in the protests, but he didn’t get his orders from Iran,” said Matthiesen.’

The Address Downtown Hotel:
Video reveals fire damage to Address hotel in Downtown Dubai
‘During the Arabic language interview, Rahoumi tells Dubai Media Office: “As soon as we heard about the incident we headed to the location. We were close by when we got the call. When we arrived, the building was already on fire.”
“Within 15-20 minutes, we were able to evacuate the residents of the hotel,” he adds.’
The Banning of Donald Trump:
MPs to debate calls to ban Donald Trump
‘The Commons petitions committee decided to hold a debate on the issue after considering the matter at a meeting on Tuesday. Under the current rules, MPs have to consider any petition with 100,000 signatures for discussion in Parliament.’

The Oregon Occupiers:
Why aren’t we calling the Oregon occupiers ‘terrorists’?
‘In fairness to those assembled in Oregon, it is true that there have been no reports of actual violence, injury or anyone being held inside the Oregon building against their will.’
Washington Post Article
We will be getting into Israel soon, but we decided that we didn’t need to report on all the other stories just yet. The Israel story is the only one that is not widely publicized in mainstream media and so we will correct that, but we wanted to start with something a little closer to home.
It is not often that I agree with Rush Limbaugh, but the man has a touched upon an interesting subject. In an article on WND, there is a poll by NBC News which states that white people and Republicans are the angriest people. Now, whilst we can’t speak for Republicans (though it might have something to do with the Presidential elections), we certainly can speak for white Americans.
‘Nearly half of Americans are angry, and no groups are angrier than whites and Republicans, according to a new NBC News/Survey Monkey/Esquire online poll about outrage in the country.
Overall, 49 percent of Americans said they find themselves feeling angrier now about current events than they were one year ago. Whites are the angriest, with 54 percent saying they have grown more outraged over the past year. That’s more than Latinos (43 percent) and African-Americans (33 percent).
And in what may come as a surprise to some, women slightly edge out men in their outrage, 53 percent to 44 percent. Fifty-eight percent of white women say they are angrier compared to 44 percent of non-white women.’
The NBC News/Survey Monkey/Esquire online poll released Sunday showed the following:
- 54 percent of whites said they are angrier now than one year ago.
- 43 percent of Latinos and 33 percent of blacks were angrier now than one year ago.
- 73 percent of whites are angry at least once per day.
- 66 percent of Hispanics and 56 percent of blacks are angry once per day.
- 61 percent of Republicans are angrier now than one year ago.
- 42 percent of Democrats are angrier now than one year ago.
54% are angrier now than a year ago. Is there perhaps a very good reason for that? Well that depends on who is reporting. According to The Free Beacon:
‘One of the most important events of 2015 was President Barack Obama creating a Twitter account, according to the White House. The White House published a blog post in Medium on Dec. 29 to “look back at the important moments of 2015.” The year in review list also includes Obama singing “Amazing Grace.”
“2015 was a big year.’
Free Beacon Article
Brilliant. Can’t image how that would anger anybody. Good to see The White House have their priorities right. Actually though, that is not strictly true. You can read the original article at medium.com 2015 Year in Review.
Let’s see if we can figure out why white Americans are so angry. We have looked The Year in Review according to Mainstream media, and like the above articles, it is very subjective. The best place for us to look would be our own articles. What happened?:
Security researchers hack into cars, tampering with brakes and steering:
Internet Connected Car Hacked and DDoSed via Smartphone
‘Hiroyuki Inoue, associate professor at Hiroshima City University’s Graduate School of Information Sciences in Japan showed how an app and a custom wi-fi device can be ingredients for car hacking.
For the demonstration he used a 2013 Toyota Corolla Fielder Hybrid and was able to control its doors, speedometer displays and the accelerator, reports the Japan Times.’
Google Self Drive cars crash 5 times more than conventional vehicles:
Study: Self-driving cars crash five times as much as regular ones
‘For every million miles driven, self-driving vehicles had 9.1 crashes, compared to just 1.9 for regular vehicles, according to a report released Thursday by the University of Michigan’s Transportation Research Institute. In other words, self-driving cars were five times as likely to crash as conventional ones, and their passengers were four times as likely to get injured (with 3.29 injuries per million miles, compared to only .77 injuries in regular cars). Self-driving cars were also rear-ended 50% more often than traditional vehicles.’
Government takes control of the internet:
FCC Approves ‘Net Neutrality’ Plan to Control Internet Access
‘The plan, which puts the Internet in the same regulatory camp as the telephone and bans business practices that are “unjust or unreasonable,” represents the biggest regulatory shakeup to the industry in almost two decades. The goal is to prevent providers from slowing or blocking web traffic, or creating paid fast lanes on the Internet, said FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler.’
Government admits internet spying program:
NSA performed warrantless searches on Americans’ calls and emails – Clapper
‘US intelligence chiefs have confirmed that the National Security Agency has used a “back door” in surveillance law to perform warrantless searches on Americans’ communications.
The NSA’s collection programs are ostensibly targeted at foreigners, but in August the Guardian revealed a secret rule change allowing NSA analysts to search for Americans’ details within the databases.’
Ebola is going to kill us all:
The Ebola Virus Is Mutating, Scientists Warn
‘In the last week, Guinea has suffered a resurgence – with reported cases increasing by a third.
Reasons for the increase have not been provided, but may be attributable to the mutations making the virus more contagious, and the possible increase in asymptomatic people unknowingly spreading the disease.
More mutations can make it harder to diagnose – and treat – Ebola.’
The Daily Sheeple Article
Trusted people caught lying (Brian Williams, Hilary Clinton, Rand Paul, Anderson Cooper, Bill O-Reilly, Barack Obama, David Cameron). There are far too many links to add here, but the point is, if you don’t know who you can trust, why would you trust anybody? Moving on.
Religion undermined by The Church:
Retired priest: ‘Hell’ was invented by the church to control people with fear
‘Religion is always in the control business, and that’s something people don’t really understand. It’s in a guilt-producing control business. And if you have Heaven as a place where you’re rewarded for you goodness, and Hell is a place where you’re punished for your evil, then you sort of have control of the population. And so they create this fiery place which has quite literally scared the Hell out of a lot of people, throughout Christian history. And it’s part of a control tactic.’

Radical Feminists demand the death of all men:
‘Kill All Men’: Lib Dem Activist in Hate Speech Scandal
‘A Liberal Democrat activist who sits on two national party committees has been suspended from her regional party after a string of sexist comments on social media. The activist in question, Sarah Noble, made multiple tweets of a disturbingly hateful nature, including “kill all men”, “fuck men”, and “die cis[gendered] scum”.’

Un-armed citizens being shot dead by police:
Over 1,000 People Killed By Police Since The Beginning Of 2015
‘As of Monday evening, U.S. police had killed 1,024 people since the start of the year, according to The Counted, a continuously updated database of U.S. police killings maintained by The Guardian. Of the total, 203 victims of police were unarmed.
In November alone police killed 10 unarmed males, including Jamar Clark, the 24-year-old man whose death led to in ongoing protests in Minneapolis, and Jeremy Mardis, a six-year-old who was shot by police in Louisiana during a chase. (Body camera footage showed that the two officers involved in Mardis’ death fired recklessly into the car driven by Chris Few, the boy’s father, who was also injured in the incident. The two officers have been arrested.)’

Imminent war with Russia, Iran, China:
US On The Ropes: China To Join Russian Military In Syria While Iraq Strikes Intel Deal With Moscow, Tehran
‘For some time now, the Security Council has maintained unity and coordination on the question of Syria, thanks to efforts by Council members, including China, to accommodate the major concerns of all parties. At a time when seriously diverging views exist among the parties concerning the draft resolution, we believe that the Council should continue holding consultations, rather than forcing a vote on the draft resolution, in order to avoid undermining Council unity or obstructing coordination and cooperation on questions such as Syria and other major serious issues. Regrettably, China’s approach has not been taken on board; China therefore voted against the draft resolution.’
Citizens put on No Fly list, without explanation or chance of appeal:
The no-fly list that could become the no-gun list, explained
‘The no-fly list is one part of the government’s watch list system, for tracking “known or suspected terrorists” and trying to prevent them from carrying out terrorist attacks in the US. The broader database of known or suspected terrorists compiled by the federal government tracks about 700,000 people; compared with that, the no-fly list is fairly small, with only 47,000 people.’

Terrorism on the increase. ISIS in The States:
‘Thousands’ of ISIS fighters now inside U.S. cities
‘The FBI has said it has about 900 active ISIS investigations in all 50 states but never given an estimate of how big the contingent of ISIS sympathizers may be in the U.S.
The Threat Knowledge Group’s chairman is counter-terrorism expert Sebastian Gorka, a Department of Defense adviser. The group, which includes academics and policy advisers, has put together a list of 82 persons in the United States who were affiliated with the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, and apprehended by law enforcement officials, including those who traveled or attempted to travel to Iraq and Syria, launched domestic attacks, or participated in recruiting or fundraising.’
Stock Markets suffer:
‘With stock prices rushing far ahead of economic reality over the last six or so years, more experts in the financial markets are coming to the same conclusion — even if they don’t fully understand how it’s being rigged or the consequences.
Ed Yardeni, a longtime Wall Street guru who isn’t one of the clowns of the bunch, said flat-out last week that the market was being propped up. “These markets are all rigged, and I don’t say that critically. I just say that factually,” he asserted on CNBC.’

The Trans-Pacific Partnership Would Promote
Off-Shoring of American Jobs
‘Nearly five million American manufacturing jobs – one out of every four – have been lost since implementation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the World Trade Organization (WTO). Since NAFTA, over 60,000 American manufacturing facilities have closed. The TPP would replicate and expand on the NAFTA model.
A leaked text revealed that TPP is slated to include the extreme foreign investor privileges that help corporations offshore more U.S. jobs to low-wage countries. These NAFTA-style terms provide special benefits to firms that relocate abroad and eliminate many of the usual risks that make firms think twice about moving to low-wage countries.
Under the NAFTA model, U.S. manufacturing imports have soared while growth of U.S. manufacturing exports has slowed.’
Immunizations are mandatory:
Yes, the Government Can Make You Vaccinate Your Child
‘Citing Jacobson v. Massachusetts, the 1905 case,a three-judge panel ruled in a short opinion that New York was well within its “police power” to mandate vaccinations for schoolchildren. Since immunizations are “in the interest of the population as a whole,” the court said they trump the parents’ individual wishes. The court brushed aside their claim that “a growing body of scientific evidence demonstrates that vaccines cause more harm to society than good,” noting that only the legislature—and not the parents or the court—could make the call on the alleged body of evidence.’

Obama care price hikes:
Prices for popular Obama care health plans rising sharply
‘Rates released by the Obama administration Friday and analyzed by consulting firm Avalere Health found that the lowest cost “silver” plan – the most popular option in the law’s insurance marketplaces – will rise 13 percent, about four times the increase for plans this past year.
The steep increases are certain to rekindle criticism from Republicans that the Obama care marketplaces aren’t working as promised. In recent weeks, they’ve also seized on the collapse of 10 nonprofit startup insurers established with tens of millions of dollars’ worth of Obama care loans as evidence of the law’s deep flaws.
Roughly two-thirds of all HealthCare.gov customers are enrolled in the mid-level silver plans, which cover 70 percent of medical costs. Those plans will see varying cost swings across the country — the cheapest silver plan in Oklahoma will spike by 44 percent next year, while exchange shoppers in Indiana will an average decrease of 14 percent.’
Let me break it down into plain English. Hypothetically, it would look like this:
Monday morning I wake up and get ready for work. I put the news on and I hear that we have launched missiles on Russia. ISIS have entered my country and yet another politician has been caught lying. Well, okay. It’s not a great start to the week. On my way to work I pick up my mail. In it I read a letter telling me I have to pay more taxes for whatever reason. Another letter tells me my healthcare is going up as much as 55%.
I get to work (let’s pretend I work at Wal-Mart). Once there I get told I am out of a job and to clear my desk.
On my way back to the car, there are protests from women calling for my death, because I had the audacity to be born a man and I am worthless to them. I get in my car and on my way home, there is a road check. Now, knowing I am possibly about to be shot dead, I know I have to hold my tongue. I have to prove to them where I am going, where I have come from and all my details. I do not know why, but I have to be respectful to them, even if they are not respectful to me.
I get home and the damn electric has gone out again. It does that a lot. Something about the frailty of the local nuclear plant. The wife has been told the kids have to have vaccines or they can’t attend school. The electric is finally back on and on the news, I am told I have to turn in my firearm. The one I have never used. If I don’t turn it in, I will be labelled a terrorist, I wont be able to fly, or buy a new car or even a new house if I ever get another job and decide to move. The house that I do own is going down in value everyday and it may or may not have something to do with crime being on the increase or maybe even ‘mass’ shootings taking place in my hometown and yet I am not allowed to do anything about it.
Because I lost my job, I can’t afford the taxes. That means that once again, I am put on a no-fly list. Forever. And I can’t do anything to change that. Because I can’t afford the healthcare, I can’t get those vaccines, so the kids wont be educated. Great. So in the space of a day, I have gone from being a loving family man with a good job, wife and kids, to a simple and lowly bum on the streets.
This sounds like a really bad 2015. If any of this happened to you, you wouldn’t be too happy, would you? Now, some or perhaps most of these things happen on a daily basis in the US. Who wouldn’t be angry? Don’t you have a right to be outraged?
Do you see how everything that has happened over the past year has been designed to demoralize and financially cripple you? And in no way can you escape that. Even if you could get out of the US, where would you go? Everybody hates you. As far as the rest of the world are concerned, you are solely responsible for all the war and conflict, for trying to control other countries and for just not being fair. You are to be looked on and treated as a racist gun-toting mindless radical PoS, as decreed by your own Government no less and you are supposed to be happy about that? Come on now.
If that were me, I wouldn’t just be angry. I would be damn well furious.
We at Political Beast sincerely hope that all this anger finally pushes you into actually doing something about it. Get off the fence and understand, it is now happening to you, not somebody else. You no longer have the option of looking the other way.
