The things we can't be told in Our Town!

SATURDAY, APRIL 17, 2021

Today, it's the Washington Post: Why was Daunte Wright being arrested last Sunday?

The answer to that is one of the things we can't be told in Our Town.. On Thursday night, this is what we marks were told as The NewsHour's Yamiche Alcindor spoke with Brian Williams:

ALCINDOR (4/15/21): So the mother and family of Daunte Wright today said, Can you imagine what Dante was probably feeling as he had three officers surrounding him for what seemed like a minor infraction having to do with a warrant for marijuana, a business that people make money with all over the country? So I think there really needs to be a big conversation about that.

WILLIAMS: Yeah, a 20-year-old in a Buick that was a gift to him. Yamiche, you're so right.

Earth to the PBS NewsHour and to Brian Williams: 

Daunte Wright wasn't being arrested on the basis of "a minor infraction having to do with a warrant for marijuana." For background on this point, see yesterday's report.

It's amazing to think that this howling misstatement was made on Thursday evening's show. As we predicted yesterday, no correction was offered last night as Williams novelized his way through yet another program. 

Here in Our Town, we aren't allowed to know the facts about that attempted arrest. Our minders are committed to misinforming us the rubes about this point of Sacred Narrative.

Thursday night, things got so bad that we were told that the attempted arrest concerned marijuana! Last night, Brian let this ridiculous howler stand—and this morning, in the Washington Post, Our Town was treated to this:

EMBA (4/17/21): This Sunday, as the trial paused, police in Brooklyn Center, Minn., (less than 10 miles from where Chauvin is on trial for the death of George Floyd) pulled over Daunte Wright while he was driving, citing a traffic violation. Air freshener hanging from his rearview mirror, Wright told his mother. An expired tag, the police department said. Either way, not capital offenses. Wright attempted to get back into his car, and a police officer shot him to death. Allegedly, she mistook her gun for her Taser. She has, at least, resigned and been charged with manslaughter.

Werewolves of London again!

That was Christine Emba, in the Washington Post, advancing the scripted misimpression that the attempted arrest was about those demon air fresheners. Or an expired tag!

On what basis was that arrest attempted? Here in Our Town, an agreement exists among our elites—we rubes aren't allowed to know.

While we're at it, also take note of this:

Wright broke away from the police officer who was trying to handcuff him. He then attempted to evade arrest (again). How does Emba describe that action?

Simple! According to Emba, the young man "attempted to get back into his car." It's the most innocent thing in the world!

Young people do many foolish things. Wright had done several foolish things in the past several years, at least two of which apparently involved the use of a gun. Also, the failure to show up for his court date concerning his use of a gun.

We aren't inclined to blame young people for doing foolish thigs. On the other hand, it's hard to be sufficiently amazed by the kinds of people who go on MSNBC, or who write in the Washington Post, and refuse to tell us rubes the truth about this important event.

We aren't inclined to blame young people for the unwise things they do. Having said that, let us also say this:

Alcindor, Williams and Emba (and Emba's editors) are no longer young. We'll further explore this remarkable journalistic group conduct at the start of the week.

  1. "things we can't be told in Our Town.."

    Does it really matter that we never get the full truth about any of these endless random acts of structural stupidity inherent to the USA? Our structural stupidity is built on lies and ignorance and it is the duty of the billionaire-owned mass to keep churning it out. It's futile to keep complaining about it as you do Bob.

  2. "Today, it's the Washington Post"

    As if you didn't know what the Washington Post is, dear Bob: Der Stürmer of modern day America.

    Forget about it, and read Substack.

    1. Substack is where the bigots hang-out on the internet. There and Bob Somerby's TDH, of course.

  3. "Also, the failure to show up for his court date concerning his use of a gun."

    Wright's public defender attorney says that they were never notified of that Zoom court date. They also did not know a warrant had been issued.

    Of course family members, trying to figure out what was going on, are going to think about his marijuana use fine, since they did not know the details about the warrant either.

    The information on social media came from those trying to make sense of his arrest, using their limited information. It is not a fabrication or attempt to portray Wright in any manner, but their best attempt at figuring out what happened.

    Somerby, however, does try to portray Wright in the worst possible light in order to justify a shooting which has no justification. Nothing Wright did justified what happened. That's why Potter (the cop involved) resigned and is now being charged with manslaughter.

    1. He's not justifying anything. Just go away, crank.

  4. Bob, might I suggest a series on why dead victims of domestic abuse had it coming
    Or perhaps a piece on how kids murdered by their parents were really annoying.

    Our town needs to know

    1. Or how a white 16 yo aiming a precise replica of a gun at a cop, the pulling a knife out to assault him is equivalent to an unarmed black youth being shot dead by a cop (see his Toy Gun entry which was pure bs).Then again, he is continually writing that series.

  5. From Paul Campos at Lawyers Guns & Money Blog:

    "By the way every time I encounter the literary effluvia of the Intellectual Dark Web I’m reminded of Moliere’s dictum, which remains the wisest insight anyone has ever crafted about our his (our) profession:

    Writing is like prostitution: First you do it for love, then for a few select friends, and then for money. (Loose translation)"

    The only question here at TDH is who is paying Somerby?

    1. I think Somerby's main recompense is the psychological lift that he gets from worshipping Trump and defending Roy Moore, Ron Johnson, Matt Gaetz and Devin Nunes (i.e being a Trumptard). And from denouncing Maddow, who is not a Trumptard like him

    2. Imagine paying Somerby for an effort that has an ROI of zero.

    3. Somerby obviously can't be a Russian asset because he's no asset, only a liability :)

    4. Bob is just a long-winded middle-to-highbrow liberal media critic. He's not on the take.
