NYC ‘anti-knockout game’ rally ends with apparent knockout game

A rally of New York City activists aimed at ending the “knockout game” ended with a 76-year-old woman being attacked in an episode of the game itself.

According to the New York Daily News, a 76-year-old woman was attacked minutes before an anti-knockout game rally was ending in Brooklyn. If she is the victim of the “knockout game,” she would be the city’s 10th, according to the Daily News.

The headline on the story was “Police unsure if random attacks are rising threat or urban myth,”  which sounds neutral, but no fair reader could have come away from the story without thinking the balance weighed more toward the “myth.”

That’s because the “myth” would suit the worldview at The Times – and the MSM in general — of perpetual black victimhood. The story of the “knockout game,” in which groups of young blacks assault whites and Asians trying to knock them out with one blow doesn’t fit the slipper. With the chosen at random, but chosen because of their race, the story presents blacks as criminals – and racist criminals at that.

That’s more than The Times could countenance.

Oddly, the largely black activists who made up Saturday’s Brooklyn rally didn’t seem to have a problem believing the game exists. And blathering black activist Al Sharpton doesn’t have a problem believing it either.

Tony Herbert, a ranking member of Sharpton’s National Action Network, said it’s time to end the game, which has drawn widespread attention with videos of the attacks being posted online.

“We’re not going to tolerate anybody striking, hitting or putting their hands on our women in any shape or fashion,” Herbert told the rally.

“It’s going to get you locked up.”

A few blocks away, some “youth” apparently didn’t get the memo, as the woman was knocked to the ground, according to the Daily News.

She was treated and released at Brookdale University Hospital, the Daily News reported.

The Times doesn’t appear to have heard about the incident.
