    This Revolution Will Not Be Televised

    Cover up: "Brown Pride" graffitti in Colorado

    “Get out when you can,” says [Fulton’s] friend. “I’m moving to an American neighborhood.”

    By Ian Jobling

    On the night of April 12, vandals tagged three homes, a mailbox, a dumpster, and 15 vehicles in a Denver suburb with the words “BROWN PRIDE,” a Hispanic racialist slogan. Slapstick Politics, a Denver blog, notes that the Denver Post, which printed the photograph to the right, merely stated that the neighborhood had been tagged with graffiti, without mentioning what the graffiti said or speculating about its meaning or source. Even more egregiously, a local TV news report photographed the graffiti in such a way that you couldn’t read it. The report speculates that the vandalism may have been gang-related, but does not mention that it was certainly Hispanic-related.

    The blogger, El Presidente, asks, “If ‘White Pride’ or anti-Semitic symbols had been spraypainted over quite a large swath of property would the local MSM have conveniently ignored this fact?

    You have follow that train of thought a bit further if you really want to understand what’s going on here and to appreciate the full measure of the media’s perfidy. If someone had tagged a neighborhood with “White Pride,” the story would not only have been put on the front page of Denver newspapers and been picked up by the national media, but the vandalism would have been interpreted it as the expression of a desire for racial domination and ethnic cleansing, a terrifying prospect. In short, the media did their best to sweep a threat of ethnic cleansing under the rug. We only know it happened because a story on vandalism has to be accompanied by a photograph.

    Given the media’s willful blindness to events like these, we cannot gauge the extent of Hispanic ethnic cleansing in America, just as we cannot know much about racial conflict. How common are events like these? In what other ways are whites insulted, abused, and bullied into leaving their neighborhoods? We have no idea.

    That’s what’s so spooky about what’s happening to America. Many of us know vaguely that something immense and profound is occurring, a demographic eclipse, but we know very little about how the transformation manifests itself in everyday life. It seems that this revolution will not be televised.

    This incident did reminded me of a powerful story in the Orange County Register from two years ago that provides a glimpse of our racial reality. It deals with white flight from the city of Orange, although the term “white” is not mentioned once in the article. No racially based hostility is mentioned, although the whites were the victims of plenty of crime and incivility. Here are some extracts:

    [Carol] Fulton sits on her front porch, pensive and surveying the neighborhood. It has changed drastically, she says.

    The familiar smells and sounds of backyard barbecues are replaced by mariachi music and the honking horn of a shaved-ice cart. Fulton sees unfamiliar cars and people streaming onto the street.

    Overcrowding caused by boarding homes—more than two leases on the same property—is an issue that city officials and residents have grappled with for years. “This used to be a fun neighborhood,” says Fulton, 56. “Kids stayed outside until 10 or 11 p.m. I figured we’d live here until we died. We never in 100,000 years thought it would change.”

    On most days, Fulton caps off the night at 10 with a cigarette in her garage. But these nights, she does it with the door closed…

    The neighborhood transformation was subtle at first.

    Some families moved away and a more transient community began to develop. Unfamiliar faces filtered in and out of several houses.

    By the late ’80s and early ’90s, longtime residents complained about a parking crunch caused by dozens of people crammed into the neighborhood’s first boarding house—the big house they called “the Fortress.” The city eventually required parking permits, and the problems subsided.

    In the late ’90s, Fulton caught people peering into her rooms, urinating in her yard and making catcalls at her.

    It was common knowledge that there were multiple families and dozens of men, mainly day laborers, living in the homes, she says.
