Uncle Ruckus Does a Meltdown on Faux News

Michael Whaley, whose tirade against BlackLiveMatter on Youtube, and mentioned in my post “Uncle Ruckus Syndrome” earned himself a interview on the racist trolling Faux News…

As discussed by several folks in my comment section – there were some questions as to whether the boy in the YouTube indeed had a full set of marbles. Faux News, willing to give an audience to any Uncle Tom willing to go on camera criticizing the Black Community, BlackLIvesMatter, or any other thing racial snapped up Whaley…

To their regret.

“We need to teach kids to overcome diversity!”: Megyn Kelly gets more than she bargained for when #AllLivesMatter advocate goes off the rails

On “The Kelly File” Tuesday night, host Megyn Kelly spoke to Michael Whaley, an African-American Marine whose anti-#BlackLivesMatter video went viral over the weekend.

In the video, Whaley accused the movement of “encouraging black people to kill white people” — encouragement to which he attributed the murder of Officer Darren Goforth in Houston last Friday. That wasn’t the only Fox News talking point/marching order Whaley indulged in, as he also claimed that “black people can’t accept the truth about themselves,” and need to focus on the fact that “all lives matter.”

Given that Whaley’s video essentially repeated everything that Fox News’ white hosts and guests have been arguing for weeks now, it’s not surprising that Kelly’s producers booked him for an appearance. After all, there’s just something different about him that could lend their arguments the appearance of greater credibility. But back to the interview with Kelly, in which Whaley briefly recapitulated his/their argument before noting that the black community is even more complicit in its own destruction than Kelly assumed.

“What about the ‘no snitch rule’?” Kelly asked. “This was the first I’ve heard about that, for why black people in the inner cities don’t speak up more about black-on-black crime.”

Whaley expressed disbelief, saying “the ‘no snitch rule,’ you know, you’ve probably heard of it before, so I don’t understand why you say it’s your first time hearing about it. There’s been a ‘no snitch rule for a long time.”

“But in this context, it was new,” Kelly clarified, wholly unconvincingly. Even if she had heard of the rule, the fact that she hadn’t thought about the context of the black community enough to consider its implications in this context speaks volumes about the depth of her concern with the plight of black communities in the inner city.

Her inability to make this simple, obvious connection seemed to unnerve him, so after explaining the rule to Kelly, Whaley went on a bizarre rant that began by noting that Jesus’ people had him crucified, but he loved them anyway, and ended by him asserting that “black people and white people aren’t enemies, there’s somebody else behind closed doors, that’s actually pulling the strings, that’s actually causing racism in America.” He didn’t specify who this someone or someones is, but from the look on Kelly’s face, she was clearly afraid he was going to name names. Instead, Whaley veered off in yet another direction.

“It starts with education,” he argued, “we need to teach our kids to overcome diversity, to accept criticism of our races. The #BlackLivesMatter movement is encouraging black people to throw away their lives for something most white people of this generation weren’t a part of, and can’t control. That’s history, let’s not look at the negative things in history. History tends to repeat itself.”

At this point, an uncomfortable Kelly had tried to cut him off three or four times, and finally did so successfully, saying “I hear you, I hear you. We appreciate you coming on, telling us your perspective.”

Whooops!

Uncle Ruckus Syndrome

“For fifty years predjudiced white men and abject, boot lickin, gut lacking, favor seeking Negroes have been insulting our intelligence with a tale that goes like this; segregation is not evil. Negroes are better off by themselves. They can get equal treatment and be happier if they live and move and have their being off by themselves. But any Negro who uses this theoretical possibility as a justification for segregation is either dumb, or mentally dishonest, or else he has like Esau, chosen a mess of pottage.”

The World of Justice Thurgood Marshall By Carl T. Rowan 1993 pg. 63

Stockholm syndrome refers to a group of psychological symptoms that occur in some persons in a captive or hostage situation. It has received considerable media publicity in recent years because it has been used to explain the behavior of such well-known kidnapping victims as Patty Hearst (1974) and Elizabeth Smart (2002). The term takes its name from a bank robbery in Stockholm, Sweden, in August 1973. The robbers took four employees of the bank (three women and one man) into the vault with and kept them hostage for 131 hours. After the employees were finally released, they appeared to have formed a paradoxical emotional bond with their captors; telling reporters that they saw the police as their enemy rather than the bank robbers, and that they had positive feelings toward the criminals.

The syndrome was first named by, Nils Bejerot (1921–1988), a medical professor who specialized in addictionresearch and served as a psychiatric consultant to the Swedish police during the standoff at the bank. Stockholm syndrome is also known as Survival Identification Syndrome.

http://medicaldictionary.thefreedictionary.com/Stockholm+syndrome

Causes & symptoms:

Stockholm syndrome does not affect all hostages (or persons in comparable situations); in fact, a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) study of over 1200 hostage-taking incidents found that 92% of the hostages did not develop Stockholm syndrome. FBI researchers then interviewed flight attendants who had been taken hostage during airplane hijackings, and concluded that three factors are necessary for the syndrome to develop:

(1)  The crisis situation lasts for several days or longer.

(2)  The hostage takers remain in contact with the hostages; that is, the hostages are not placed in a separate room.

(3) The hostage takers show some kindness toward the hostages or at least refrain from harming them. Hostages abused by captors typically feel anger toward them and do not usually develop the syndrome.

(4) In addition, people who often feel helpless in other stressful life situations or are willing to do anything in order to survive seem to be more susceptible to developing Stockholm syndrome if they are taken hostage.

People with Stockholm syndrome report the same symptoms as those diagnosed with posttraumatic stressdisorder (PTSD) : insomnia, nightmares, general irritability, difficulty concentrating, being easily startled, feelings of unreality or confusion, inability to enjoy previously pleasurable experiences, increased distrust of others, and flashbacks.

Boondocks character, Uncle Ruckus

Most black folks are familiar with, or have met someone who suffers from Uncle Ruckus disease or Uncle Tom Syndrome. It is so well known, the persona became a character in a major comic strip, Boondocks. In America today, the sociopath meets the syndrome at the nexus of fame and at least fleeting fortune. Mass murderers like James Holmes are motivated in part, by the lure of infamy, and seeing their pictures on TV. With white racist willing to pay 10’s if not 100’s of thousands of dollars for Negroes willing to provide racial cover and justification, money and acceptance provide powerful motivations to enter the world of race prostitution in the media. The chains may no longer be iron, but the chattel remains.

Case in point…
