What do Robin Williams and the Ferguson race riots have in common? Both suicides show that we are not tough enough to survive as a society and as a nation.
Right now some people are like, “Jimmy, Michael Brown did not commit suicide! He was shot execution style by a racist cop.”
Have you never heard of death by cop? It’s a form of passive suicide used most often by daredevil rednecks and black youths.
In fact, the belt-hanging suicide is most common among lonely, rich, middle-aged white men. Robin Williams fit the criteria for active suicide quite well.
Conversely, young black men are the demographic least likely to commit active suicide. Is it because they have so much to live for?
No. It’s because they’re too lazy to do all the work of killing themselves. They just have other gang bangers or cops do the job for them. You know, go out in a blaze of glory.
Section 8 Suicide
Hey black youths, do you have a death wish? Do this: get high, try to grab a cop’s gun, run away, turn around, taunt the cop, then charge the cop. BOOM! Section 8 suicide.
I’m sorry! Is this mean-spirited of me to say? Yes?! Well, your incredulity proves my point. You’re not tough enough to exist as a society. We absolutely must cast an appropriate level of scorn on those who have committed suicide. Especially the reckless variety of Michael Brown that endangered others.
If we fail to condemn suicide, others will follow suit. I believe it’s called the suicide contagion. But I can’t check because I have no data here.
If we continue to coddle blacks, they will continue down their self destructive path and bring the whole country with them.
17-year-olds such as Treyvon Martin and Michael Brown were not boys. They were men. If we hold them up as tragically victimized heroes, we risk a suicide-by-cop contagion.
Did someone else invent that term first? Check the internet for me. Suicide by cop contagion. I can’t check.
I’m in the middle of the West Texas oil field. Also, the above factoids about suicides among blacks and whites may not be true. I vaguely remember something like them in a Freakenomics Podcast. (Can one of you guys find out for me and put it in the comments?)
But speaking of discouraging copy cats, the American media at first hesitated to say suicide about Robin Williams. Instead they celebrated the life of the characters that Robin Williams played. (Robin Williams was an actor.)
Last week, I was waiting in line at a truck stop in Odessa (Love’s). Some cable news reporters on the tv lamented “Robin Williams tragic, sudden death.” Then they proceded to gleefully quote lines Robin Williams recited in movies he starred in. (Robin Williams was an actor.)
Members of the media who beatify an actor and gloss over his suicide in his hagiography erode the neccessary adversion to sucide we need as a society. They prove we’re not tough enough to reinforce that natural adversion to ending your own life.
Death is Painful
One practical method to reinforce that adversion is to make note of the pain of death. Yet when the coroner realeased graphic details of Robin Williams’s corpse, the media condemned the coroner. They did not condemn Robin Williams for killing Robin Williams.
Like I said we’re not tough enough to survive as a society.
Is America Tough Enough?
Right now some people are like, “Jimmy, you just want us to walk around like Juggalos singing songs about suicide? Is that tough enough for you?”
No. Please don’t.
You don’t know what tough means. Let me define toughness. It’s not being macho. Toughness is doing what you must even though you don’t want to.
Look at Ferguson, Missouri. Do you see something that must be done that no one wants to do?
Someone needs to rebuke all these African Americans. Someone needs to tell them they are wrong, they need to shut up, and that they are acting foolish.
Why do must we do this? To act like jerks? Because we feel superior? No! To improve their lives! For it is written, “Whoever rebukes a man will afterward find more favor than he who flatters with his tongue.”
Who’s Happy Michael Brown is Dead?
Someone said it was sad that a young man, Michael Brown, was killed. They said it like they made a poignant observation. And I’m thinking, oh really, it’s sad you say?! Is Darren Wilson hiding out in some smoke filled room laughing with delight because he killed a young man?
Of course it’s sad! That’s exactly why we need to get tough and tell blacks that if you live like a dog, you’ll die like a dog.
That’s why we must teach blacks the wisdom of the Holy Bible so they do not fall for the wicked schemes of Barack Obama and Eric Holder.
These despicable men are not tough. They are cowards who cloak their violence with deceit. They speak with much flattery in order to coral black Americans on towards the slaughter. I rebuke them in Jesus name. For it is written,
>Partiality in judging is not good.
Whoever says to the wicked, “You are in the right,” will be cursed by peoples, abhorred by nations,
but those who rebuke the wicked will have delight, and a good blessing will come upon them.
Whoever gives an honest answer kisses the lips.
Pucker up, bro.
