I was gripped by Liam Neeson’s public admission, that he sought to kill a black because somebody close to him was raped by a black.
“I went up and down areas with a cosh, hoping I’d be approached by somebody – I’m ashamed to say that – and I did it for maybe a week, hoping some [Neeson gestures air quotes with his fingers] ‘black bastard’ would come out of a pub and have a go at me about something, you know? So that I could,” another pause, “kill him.”
Some people on the Right have speculated it was a kind of virtue-signalling gone wrong, that Neeson was trying to dutifully fulfill left cultural anti-white caricatures by playing the ‘ignorant racist white’ turned good. “I’m so bad…white people are so bad…but now I’m not like that”, either to assist his own advancement or to appease power.
The Neeson interview magically appeared right on the back of the dubious story about gay negro actor Jussie Smollet, an alleged victim of ‘hate’, where it seemed to be intended to bolster the Smollet story and therefore the wider, inverted falsification that blacks are victims of white violence because of their race, when in reality whites are overwhelmingly victims of black violence because of their race.
But if Neeson was trying to appease his anti-white oppressors, or was even acting as an accomplice in this falsification it went wrong and too much unintentional truth leaked out. It feels more like he accidentally spoke frankly as an actor and a person. It feels like he was reflecting on real rage, a real sense of injustice. And Neeson’s anger and sense of injustice speaks for a wider silent majority of whites affected by black violence.
Neeson sought to deflate the controversy later by claiming that, “he would have reacted in the same way if his friend’s attacker had been “a Scot or a Brit or a Lithuanian”
But this claim to color-blindness is one we only hear from white people looking to rid themselves of allegations of racism, particularly where an individual is being assessed on a trait that is common to that race.
It has no other utility and is never used the other way around. If Neeson had really sought a white Brit or Lithuanian he would not be forced to say, and extremely unlikely to say that he would have reacted in the same way if his friend’s attacker had been “a black or a Muslim”.
The reason the interview is so electrifying is that everyone knows blacks are distinctly and specially linked to rape – and violent crime more generally where they are “the attackers in 84.9 percent of the violent crimes involving blacks and whites” , that blacks are far more like likely to be rapists than whites, and that whites are vastly more likely to be victims of black rape than vice versa. Needless to say, the claim to color-blindness breaks down.
Furthermore blacks are a massively more distant, alien, unassimilable and unwanted outgroup compared to other Europeans.
Neeson has failed to obey the forces of liberal democracy and stunningly slipped something important through the filter. He failed to repeat the expected line that everything wrong in the world is the fault of white people.
His ideas were not based on lies, but contain a real observation about black behavior and black culpability and reveal that whites are all too often victims of savage negro violence.
Furthermore Neeson’s interview opens the door to the idea that significant redress is long overdue for decades of black violent crime committed against whites, and that a law and order designed by white people for white people is not an appropriate fit for blackness.
