New York Police Department, New York City And Police Department discussed on The Candace Owens Show


In wake up and I go. Wow Yeah that's quite an influence. I mean shops good. It is what you not tell the truth and that's it. That's a revolutionary act these days, right? Okay, Ladies and gentlemen. We are rolling into another episode of the Candice Owens Show and I would like to talk to you all about a video that I just saw circulating on the Internet. It is remarkable and everyone should be paying attention it was a couple, a Caucasian couple that was sitting to eat in Washington DC and a mob of black lives matter activists peaceful lack lives matter activists decided to storm the restaurant and demand that people in the restaurant raised their fists in the air. And gave the black power salute. Now, this young Caucasian couple decided that they were not going to raise their fists in the air and give a black power salute and so the woman and the mob proceeded to scream at them yelling obscenities at them until finally they left when I saw looked familiar to me it looked like the images that I saw when. I was learning about the civil rights era I was learning about white people who would descend on black people that were peacefully eating and scream maps and he's at them because of the color of their skin. So what has changed really in America? Have we transported back to on the time of racial unrest this time with black Americans as the aggressor what. Is. This is all taking shape in what is at the root of it I. Think we would all agree would be the black lives matter movement I have been very vocal in my belief that black lives matter is a hate group. There is nothing nice about black lives matter are happy to use violent tactics. They are happy to you. Scare tactics they're happy. To burn they're happy to riot. They're happy to loot to accomplish their goals and I'm not quite sure what their goals are. Now, when I I I my own personal belief system on the Black Lives Matter Movement it was definitely considered controversial. I am black by the way of course, I believe that black lives matter I believe all lives matter and there was. Really a a lot of information and data that was put together in a few pieces on the Internet, as well as in a book by by next guest who I am so excited to have and to speak to about police brutality and the myth of Police Brutality Ladies and gentlemen. I am proud to welcome to my show heather. McDonald, heather is a fellow at the Manhattan Institute and the author of the book. War On cops. Heather. Welcome to the Kennesaw and such honor candice. I'm I'm privileged to be with you and I look forward to this conversation. So you are an academic, a true academic and I kinda say true academic because there are a lot of people who are not academic who pose as academics and put out these ridiculous theses that have sort of added to these obscure hubbub humanities that we're seeing today and you did something very bold and. Very, courageous years ago you told the truth about police brutality and I wanted to talk to you about what made you focus on this topic You see the world going crazy the narrative is that black people like myself just walking down the street right thing in a police officer turns and boom shoots US what what made you interested in that? Well, it was very specific moment in. New. York City Kansas New York had. been turned around by Mayor Rudolph Giuliani. One of the most visionary mayors that the city has ever had. He took on the welfare industrial complex and most importantly, he brought crime down in a way that nobody had predicted that it was possible by making the police accountable holding them accountable for for saving lives and asking them to care about public order be proactive, and this brought a renaissance to New York City that was completely unforeseen. The New York Times and the media detested Giuliani because he was destroying one liberal shift after another and they were looking for any opportunity to take him down in nineteen ninety nine. There was a very horrible one of these stomach churning police shootings of Ahmadou Biala West, Ghanaian immigrant who was trying to get in his apartment in the soundview section of the Bronx and the police were looking for a robber at our rapist rather and they thought that Diablo who is still outside the vestibule look like that rapist and they stopped him ask you questions. He didn't understand them. He reached for his wallet and they shot him the infamous forty one times this provoked weeks of celebrity protests the Times. Went into overdrive they were running three and a half articles a day claiming. that. The shooting was emblematic of the New York Police Department that the the. Police Department had. Yes. Brought crime down they had done. So on the backs of black people ignoring the fact, it was black lives that we're being saved by this unprecedented crime drop, and so they were claiming that this was the way the NYPD operated. Well, I had by then a rule of thumb that if the New York Times says, it don't believe it and so this is a very clear message. Diablo equals the New York Police Department. So I went out to the Bronx and I talked to people and I said. Are the police brutalizing you what do you think about the police and what I heard from people again, and again we want more cops. Terrified of the people engaged in drive by shootings. The police treat we met with respect. This was not just elderly females. Of course, it was them. It was young black males who would say. I don't get involved in trouble. I've not had encounters with the police I looked into the numbers as well and I found that police shootings were at their lowest level in decades. The year that Almodena was shot there were eleven people shot fatally by the police that is miniscule compared to the population numbers and so at that point. I became very interested in this narrative and I realized that the cops were living under. A. A. Narrative of lies unlike any other profession. and that they were motivated by the desire to help people and yet it became an IT and yet. The the. The story told about them was the exact opposite. This was at the height of the driving while Black Syndrome that narrative which turned also to be false, and so it became somewhat of a moral crusade for me because. It simply was unfair. That people were having to go to work each day with a presumption against them that they could not falsify, which was that they were all racist. So from then on, it's it's something an interest I've had, and sadly the narrative is just become more and more. high volume and more and more lethal above all it. The narrative of racist cops takes black lives. It's very simple right and I'm going to ask you a rather complicated question why? What? What does the New, York Times gain by perpetuating a narrative that they know is not true. What do they gain by causing this disruption by causing this unrest? Why are we seeing right now? Especially, just the height of this false narrative being perpetuated throughout the entire media. You know I think it is as much simply an ideological commitment as it is to any kind of I know you're not saying literally financial gain but I think that The. Left now it's identity is formed on the belief that they are fighting against a racist America and that gives them. Significance it gives them power. It gives them righteousness and I think they're quite sincere in that belief So they think they're on. Their own moral, crusade. To. Save Black People there's obviously a hell of a lot of condescension and and paternalism and involved in that But.
