As disturbing stories of the so-called “knockout game” continue to come out, Media Matters tool Oliver Willis has decided that conservatives outraged by the brutal, deadly attacks on innocent victims are motivated purely by politics:

What a jackass.

Maybe conservatives think that viciously attacking people for kicks is, you know, wrong.

Seriously, Oliver. What the hell?

  • NeoKong

    Actually Oliver, we don’t need our own Trayvon when your side provides so many.

    • Moto

      We already have one. His name is Jesus. And,unlike Trayvon,he wasn’t a drug-peddling petty criminal who randomly assaulted people but a gentle and long-suffering individual who made the world a better place to live in.

      If we wanted a Trayvon, we could have manufactured a fake victim out of the hundreds of thousands of petty criminals who get themselves killed via drug deals gone wrong or botched robberies or assaults and elevated him to the level of a saint, but that’s what a mentally-confused,desperate, sick,psychotic brain-damaged individual does, so we’ll stick with our guy instead,thanks.

        EXACTLY trixiewoobeans, Oliver here is obvisously a RAClST POS HACK who just doesn’t get it, trayvon was kiIIed because he acted like a THUG, these innocent people did nothing & a couple are dead from this RAClST game, BIG DIFFERENCE !! But because Oliver is a RAClST he would NOT understand that at all !!!

      • tops116 ✓Quipper

        He works at Media Matters, but he got his start on “Family Guy.”

      • Jeff McCabe

        He’s been around for years. On his blog, his tag line was “like kryponite for stupid” which….just no. He’s a unbelievably shallow thinker, always has been. However he will repeat whatever the progressive line is without any critical thought, so a perfect hire for media matters. His blog got decent traffic from the Kos kids and DU who prefer a echo chamber to trash anyone who isnt crazy. I give him credit for being able to feed himself with such a limited intellect and no writing talent.

      • Spiny Norman

        Oliver Willis is the World’s Dumbest Blogger™, a title he has managed to hold on to for the better part of a decade.

        No joke.

        He should be a shoe in for the next Star Wars bar room scene.

    Just wait till one of Oliver Willis’s relatives gets knocked out.

    • HanaFiveO

      There was an older gentleman on the subway that got knocked out cold (I cant remember if he died or not) that happened to be black. Otherwise, I believe its been mostly Whites.

      • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

        From what I’ve been seeing on the web, apparently, this idiots thug “game” has been going on for years, but was largely restricted to their own neighborhoods, black on black.. we never heard about it, because black writers and pundits in these urban cesspools refused to as they say..”air their dirty laundry in public”.. They wouldn’t ever be critical of other blacks, even the vicious thugs among their vulnerable citizens..

        Well after Travon.. they started targeting non blacks.. whites, Asians, Hispanics.. who had no don’t talk to the cops mentality..

        When they started attacking people outside their cloistered communities, the world started hearing about it..

        so the b*stard monster child they allowed to flourish, is raging out of control.. a generation of vile little cowards.. getting “payback” for being bitter and black..

        15-17 or not, they’re animals, I don’t care if their pink and only attack green people, it’s a vile cowardly act, and people are being killed..

        and Willis is predictable as the sunrise, offering the most perverse left wing spin on ity imaginable.. I’m only surprised he hasn’t claimed it’s Tea Party protesters in black face out to make urban criminals look bad..

        Willis said nothing when they were just beating and killing blacks..

        nothing..

        I guess to Willis is can’t be a hate crime..

        since to him, blacks are always the victim, even when beating a helpless old man to death in the street.

  • HanaFiveO

    These knockout games have been going on for years, in fact they started before the incident with Trayvon.

    How do you explain that Ollie?

    Now they are expanding their “game” to Jews and some people have gotten killed.
    So just a couple questions for the douchetastic twatwaffle Ollie;
    Are you OK with black youth indiscriminately beating people senseless and accelerating the process of black youth being jailed for violent offenses because they are bored?
    Are you OK with blatant racism with the targeting of whites and Jews?
    Are you OK with random people being beaten and killed for the sake of amusement?
    Are you an asshat all of the time or just at the keyboard?

    Thomas Sowell did a good article about how the media has been covering up that this has been going on for years and the reason is that the knockout game flies in the face of the prog “black victimization” narrative.

    • Fire and Adjust!

      Let me help save twatwaffle Ollie’s time and respond to your questions with answers he would be sure to give.
      Yes, as long as the victim is white, and preferably conservative
      Yes, as long as the victim is white, and preferably conservative
      Yes, as long as the victim is white, and preferably conservative

        • Thale Taxurfeet

          In OW’s case wouldn’t that be mendacious, disingenuous twatwaffle?

          • HanaFiveO

            True. Why dont we just call him douchebag for short.

          • Thale Taxurfeet

            “True. Why dont we just call him douchebag for short.”

            Well, I recall a young lady who frequents these discussions had an issue with the D word. My upbringing, albeit from back in the days of the Stone Age, drilled into me a deference towards the sensitivities of ladies. So I’ll have to be somewhat more judicious in my choice of my verbiage on the Intertubes®. 😉

          • HanaFiveO

            I see your point and kudos to you sir. How about MDT for short then?

      Instead of addressing the youth, that NO ONE wants to see die, you make it political. I FEAR that this “game” will soon result in violent teens being shot and killed. Someone of influence please step up and use your clout to speak against this “knock out” which may turn into “shoot out.”

      • HanaFiveO

        Sorry, I must have missed the part where I made it political instead of addressing the youth.

        • Red Fred

          Sorry, addressing Oliver Willis, not you.

          • HanaFiveO

            OK, sorry! Then I totally agree with you! :)

      • QueenB ✓certifiable

        Violent teens are shot and killed every single day, but it’s black kids shooting black kids, which is apparently, okey dokey.

        • Red Fred

          No, which is precisely my POINT! Where are the men?? Where is the strong black male leadership? Where are the fathers? WHERE? Kids are dying.

          • karmafordems

            The fathers baby-daddies? Yup. That is the question…

          • QueenB ✓certifiable

            You’ve seen what happens when anyone attempts to tell the black community to get their act together, right? Even Bill Cosby got a ton of flack for speaking up.

            “Compassionate” liberal welfare programs made the working class fathers superfluous, and replaced them with the welfare office.

        • QWYS (Hydralisk of the Swarm)

          So, are you saying the conservatives who say exactly what you are saying are at fault, or that rather the leadership of the black communities and the fascist progressive left that only enact policies that make things worse?

          Serious question — usually, you are a troll, but I think we may have a point of agreement here.

          • HanaFiveO

            Cant speak for me, but I do agree with the assertion the media/progs ignore the epidemic of black on black crime. Seems like progs are willing to ignore it because it doesnt fit the agenda.

            I remember after a school shooting someone posted on a MB something along the lines of ‘so what that many people get killed in my hood every weekend. No one cares because were black.’ It killed all activity on the thread for a good hour or two.

            Folks had to take a good look in the mirror I guess.

          • QueenB ✓certifiable

            Leadership of the black communities and the fascist progressive left that only enact policies to make things worse.

            I suggest you refresh your memory on what a troll is.

            I suggest you correct your memory that not everyone understands the points being made by others on forums like this at all times as intended by the person doing the posting

          • QWYS (Hydralisk of the Swarm)

            Oh and sorry, I should acknowledge that i indeed agree with your sentiment. Also after reading through this thread again, I think I now see something in Lilu’s post that you saw and I missed.

            No, sorry, I don’t have a problem with putting the players on an island and leaving them to their own vices, but until such a time, it will never be okey dokey. Maybe you are just angry, maybe you too recognized Me1976 as a usual troll as I did not sure.

          • Thale Taxurfeet

            “I don’t have a problem with putting the players on an island and leaving them to their own vices”

            Ha! I’ve long been a fan of relocating violent, incorrigible criminals to a Devil’s Island somewhere in the middle of the Indian or Pacific Ocean. Criminal outcasts should be treated as such.

          • QWYS (Hydralisk of the Swarm)

            Maybe, but your post was not clear and it has been a bit of a cognitive issue today with weather changes, swelling on the left side of my head brain at the surgery site etc.

            Yes, I read that and from what you typed right here, sounds like you struggle with it, and I hope you feel better soon.

            My posts don’t mean any more or any less than anyone else’s, I was just pointing out that if you have read my posts here, you would have probably known exactly how I meant it.

          • QWYS (Hydralisk of the Swarm)

            Thanks for the well,wishes. I have been reading hundreds if not thousands of posts a day in recent months and at some point individuals that tend to make short posts don’t stand out well.

            I tend to assume that most people only really remember the people they disagree with or follow and can easily confuse all others.

            “And what if a child, …”

          • QWYS (Hydralisk of the Swarm)

            You seem to share some of Hitler’s beliefs, the right to decide who dies. You have no right to decide who lives and who dies. To not make the necessary efforts to get rid of the fascist progressives and their destruction of this nation is to help them.

            Sorry you do not have the courage to accept the risk that doing the right thing requires. Please do not ever expect me to respond to anything you have to say in the future.

      • QWYS (Hydralisk of the Swarm)

        No fear, can’t find the story but there was an incident earlier this year where a one of the teens engaged the activity was shot in the leg by the victim.

        It will happen again, the teen will die, and we’ll be back to the brink of racial unrest again. Personally, I don’t feel any sympathy for the individuals that play this so called “game”. There is no means by which anyone that is not at the minimum sociopathic in some form would even consider doing this. Sociopaths aren’t going to end well, ever. Lets get them out of the pool sooner, rather than later.

      • HanaFiveO

        The problem is that the destruction of the black family/communities thru conditioning them to believe that they are somehow victims and therefore lesser people who cant succeed, is part of the prog agenda to maintain a strong base and enact radical policies under the guise of helping/protecting them. If Conservatives try to address this they get shouted down by the likes of the douchetastic Ollie who brands them as racists who just really want to keep minorities down or make them more white, or something.
        The voices to end this vicious cycle have to and are comming from inside the black community. When they do, they need our loud support.

        If you have never read Thomas Sowell or Denene Borelli (Blacklash) I would invite you to look them up. There are so many more great black leaders stepping up to the plate and effecting change, you just don’t hear about them from the mainstream media because it ruins the black victim mantra.

      • CatHerder ✓fire! ✓fire!

      his response would be….”Yes but slavery blablah white man blablah (munch munch on cheetos gulp a bucket full of coke) has kept the black main in chains” (extra large chains in his case) “munch munch….then you introduce cursive to make us look really stupid , and puncti , puntu …full stops to make us sound stupid. So its only fair we hit, kill , rape rob white people 7 x more than white people kill us, and so what if we are only 15% of the population but responsible for over 45% plus of murders. munch munch – racism , white man , gulp.

    “Our own Trayvon”? You mean we want a white thug to randomly attack a black person and get shot in self-defense so we can whine endlessly about how this single isolated incident is proof that all of Black America is racist beyond reason?

    Oh yeah, I went there.

    • NRPax

            Yep. She is in part responsible for Martin’s death, since she encouraged, by her own words, to go back and beat the “homo cracka” up.
            She should have been charged as an accessory to his death, at least.

    • Frank Drebin

      Yeah, sounded to me like an admission that Trayvon Martin and his grieving family were nothing more than convenient tools to be taken advantage of and be used by Ollie and the left as part of their divisive agenda.

      • LinTaylor ✓vitrified

        Of course I feel sorry for the family who lost their child. But let’s not pretend the kid was some kind of saint who was deliberately stalked and murdered because of the color of his skin.

        Because God knows people like Oliver Willis are already doing enough of that.

        • Frank Drebin

          Exactly right. And “their own Trayvon” strikes me as some sort of inanimate pawn in a bizarre twisted contest that Willis seems to think is ‘winnable’.

  • AmericanMom

    Oliver, hope the next knockout is for you, just for you. Come back afterwards and tell us how it was okay and how much you enjoyed it.

    Let’s break that down, this person think’s he and his collective own a dead person’s legacy. A bogus legacy at that.

    Conservatives don’t worship at the altar of victimhood. That’s the Left purview they are welcome to their victimizing and exploiting of the dead. People who have been raised right understand that’s distasteful and low class.

      Compare Trayvon Martin to who is participating in the knockout game. Would Trayvon Martin be on the receiving or giving end of the Knockout game?

      This Willis person doesn’t seem very bright. I can’t think of one conservative that wants to be aligned with thug culture. Not one.

      • Matt

        The truth makes Oliver uncomfortable. Libs like him have been blaming whites for every problem in the black community for decades, no wonder the young blacks in the USA feel whites ‘have it coming’ and feel they are doing no wrong when attacking whites.

        Its pretty straight forward, marauding band of youths roam the streets, pick someone out at random, whoever is “up” goes up and punches the chosen one in the head. If you knock them out, top score, if you dont, you keep punching them in the head until they do go unconscious. Someone in the group records it and then the post it on Utube and collect the thumbs up. Who ever gets the most likes, wins.
        Whats hidden? What part of the story dont you get?

    • Richard Jefferies

      No, we knew Trayvon was a racist, and it turns out a homophobe.

  • Vlad99

    The hysteria is about making this racial at all costs. Having minstrel character Allen West lecturing Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson on what their priorities should be. That’s probably the hysteria he is talking about. People are getting sucker punched in the streets, that’s criminal behavior and police should stop it. If a conceal carry permit holder bust a cap into one of those thugs after being cold-clocked in the streets he is within his rights. But the rush to make this racial is as misguided as the rush the make the Martin incident a racial one.

    • LinTaylor ✓vitrified

      News flash, sports fan: Conservatives weren’t the ones who dragged race into this by dredging up Trayvon Martin. That would be Oliver Willis, an avowed leftist hack.

      • Vlad99

        I guess that’s why breibart trotted out conservative black token Allen West to tell black people what their priorities should be.

        • LinTaylor ✓vitrified

          I love how your type cries racism out of one side of your mouths, and then turns right around and tries to dismiss any and all minority conservatives by calling them names like “token” and “Uncle Tom”. And it’s not just blacks, either; female conservatives like Palin and Bachmann get told “shut up and get back in the kitchen” as well, and I’m sure if you guys could think of cute little insults for Latinos and Asians, you’d be slinging them at Ted Cruz and Mike Lee.

          Again, news flash: We’re the ones judging people by the content of their character, rather than the color of their skin. People like Trayvon Martin and Oliver Willis are rotten on the inside; they don’t get a Get Out of Criticism Free Card just because they’ve got dark skin on the outside.

          • Vlad99

            Guess that makes you an expert on racism.

    • tops116 ✓Quipper

      “But the rush to make this racial is as misguided as the rush the make the Martin incident a racial one.”

      Then you might want to take that up with Ollie.

      By the way, calling Allen West a “minstrel character” isn’t the best way to keep things from being made racial.

    • HanaFiveO

      ….Minstrel character Allen West….

      Well gee ya little racist why not just come right out and call him and Uncle Tom, dont sugar coat it.

      …lecturing Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson….

      You mean the professional race baiters who have become rich off the misery of their own people?

      … But the rush to make this racial is as misguided as the rush the make the Martin incident a racial one….
      Not really, when you try to create a racial divide based on nothing that supports it and in fact the actual facts disprove it, that is racial hysteria.

      When clearly the facts support a basis for racial targeting, that is racial targeting.

      Frankly Id rather see the black community condemn this kind of “thug” behavior and stop it instead of waiting till someone “bust a cap” one these idiots or see them spend the rest of their lives in prison.

      I guess I just don’t see black kids as expendable like you seem to.

      • Vlad99

        Does the white community have to condemn every types of criminals that comes from within their ranks? Or do they let the police do their jobs.

        • HanaFiveO

          They dont HAVE to, they just do. That’s what responsible folks do.

          Ya gonna address any of the points I made in my post or just fling more poo against the wall?

          • Vlad99

            A black man I know tokenism when I see it and conservatives are experts at trotting them out. Conservatives are always telling we are not anti-woman look at Sarah Palin but pass laws to poke probes in women vaginas. They say look at Allen West and Herman Cain we love black then people turn around and defend stop and frisk. Have you seen Marco Rubio our Latin hero as long as he doesn’t try to do anything about immigration reform.
            Black people do just condemn every criminals in every communities that goes without saying. Trying impute criminal activity to a whole community by calling on them to “condem” as if that’s supposed to mean something else when the perp is black is just patronizing. Deal with criminals the way society has deemed to deal with them and leave it at that. Who cares what Al Sharpton or Allen West have to say about it. They are criminal put them in jail every criminal is expandable that’s why Americans are the best at building prisons.

          • HanaFiveO

            OK, your just going to fling poo.

            The problem with not having a strong community with strong community leaders is that this type of harmful criminal activity is allowed to run amok. Cops can only clean up the mess after the crime happens and lives are already ruined.

            And by the way, Al Sharpton has finally stepped up to the plate and condemned the knockout game.

          • Vlad99

            Well we don’t need you or the likes of you to pick our leaders for us. Thank you very much, you can keep Allen West. Like I said no one condones criminal acts including Rev Sharpton whoever is the perpatrator. One question why is it that when a white kid shoots up a school it’s an isolated incident but when a black kid commits a crime it has to be a reflection of a weak community.

          • HanaFiveO

            Well thanks for deciding who can and cant vote and who they should and should not vote for. Thats a big load off my mind.
            Never said when a white kid shoots up a school its an isolated incident, so you’re just flinging more poo there.

          • Vlad99

            “The problem with not having a strong community with strong community leaders is that this type of harmful criminal activity is allowed to run amok.” So which weak leaders and what weak community are you talking about?

          • HanaFiveO

            Community leaders in any community that don’t stand up to try to right a wrong.

            In the case of the Knock out game it happens to be black community leaders from within the black community.

            The same statement would apply to any community/leaders who see a violent/harmful trend in their community and condone it with their silence.

          • Vlad99

            But we don’t see Sarah Palin (just one example) ever have anything to say about public shootings does that make her a weak leader of a weak community? Wayne Lapierre did not have anything to say about Aurora and Sandy-Hook shooting victims. Are gun-owners a weak community with weak leaders. Not being racist means holding everyone to the same standard right??? Or am I just flinging poo?

          • HanaFiveO

            They both had things to say about it Vlad. Bing is your friend and a font of information.

            Oh this vlad guy is a gem – I provided an educated opinion of Ollie based on my background and an ongoing observation of how Ollie expresses himself, and vlad assumed I’m right wing and against science. Not sure how that works, but I guess it does in vlad’s mind.

          • HanaFiveO

            Yea, I thought your summary was pretty right on.

            Vlads been doing that throughout the thread, he doesn’t address any points that I direct to him, but makes a ton of assumptions and deflects about my posts too.
            Ahh well, you play with him for a while, hes boring after a bit.

          • Michelle ✓classified

            He just got boring to me. Won’t answer my question of what fields of study his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees are in. And that’s cool, something tells me my degrees provide me with a bit of knowledge to form the opinion I have of Ollie, but maybe vlad won’t answer the question because he has no formal education in the matter of human behavior. Plus you know my professional background that leaves me (us) a little bit of skill in accurately assessing behavior. Identifying patterns of causes and conditions of certain behaviors is old hat for us.

          • Michelle ✓classified

            I take that back, he just answered the question while I was typing this reply to you. I was correct, he has no education or experience with human behavior.

            LOL, LOL,LOL

          • Vlad99

            Being a black man with a job I tought that gave me a little credit. But I do enjoy my conversation with you ladies you are obviously smart and educated. So I apologize for assuming. That being said, I have no background (education or otherwise) in assessing behavior that’s why I was interested in how you made your assesment. I raise my kids to be self-sufficient to be respectfull and respected members of society. I’m afraid one day someone will mistake my 13 year old for someone who will sucker punch them for fun. I’m not a “baby-daddy” no stereotype about black men infuriates me more. So please I’m doing my darn best to raise productive kids and try (with my limited ability) to understand why so many people are so quick to paint all black kids with the same brush. Once a bullet is fired rightly or wrongly it can never be taken back.

          • HanaFiveO

            Ok Vlad, Im going to take one last stab at this and then Im done with this. I do appreciate your apology for your assumptions. It takes a gentle person (dont know if your a man/woman) to make an apology.

            You dont know our histories and we dont know yours.Your color and job status dont shine thru the computer screen so I really dont understand how anything of that nature gives you credit with anyone on a message board for much of anything.

            But lets be honest here, there was very little discussion. You came in here and without any knowledge aforethought started casting about stereotypes of what you believe conservatives to be; anti-science, racist, bigoted, cowardly, etc. You were responded to honestly and openly, yet you continued to spin, deflect and post incorrect biased interpretations in response. If there was any painting with a broad brush going on here, it was on your end IMHO.

            Good for you and the successful job you are doing raising your kids. But frankly, black, white or purple, isnt that your job? Dont you have a responsibility to do that for your kids?
            By the way you are describing your self, I would suggest that you are in fact a leader in your community, you are leading by example. Speak out, get involved. Living in fear of something wont change the circumstances that create the fear, silence will only enable and ensure the circumstances continue.

            Only by speaking out and taking action within your own community can effective change happen. Outsiders telling a community what they should do never works nor is welcome. Looking for someone/thing to blame is wasted energy. Put that energy to good use.

            Thats what I did. Thats what Ive spent my life doing.

            Ok, Im done. Have a nice remainder of the day.

          • Vlad99

            Thanks for your reply it’s very appreciated. This will also be my last stab. Actually I am not a leader like you said I’m doing what normal fathers are supposed to do no matter their skin colour. I can only teach my own kids about gang violence and how to avoid it. I grew up in a gang infested area and could not move “out of the hood” fast enough. I don’t preach or condones violence but those who do are not ready to listen to anyone. When someone decides it’s fun to cold-clock strangers they are criminals (black or white). What makes someone a criminal is their behaviour not their clothes or their skin-colour. But I see on these posts I see what is the perception they have of black men. I can teach my kids all the values in the world that wont change how people perceive them. Once someone perceives them a threat they are in danger.

          • HanaFiveO

            Your’e selling yourself short Vlad, you are a leader by virtue of the fact you rose above your peers and circumstances. Whether or not you chose to accept that role and act upon it is up to you.

          • Michelle ✓classified

            Hmmm, do the leaders of the black communities have much to say about/to the inner city gangs who murder their own at a rate much higher than any other gun related deaths? Because from where I see things, the leaders of the black community are outspoken only when someone from any other race kills a black person. Keep going vlad, this is indeed entertaining.

          • Vlad99

            Black leaders are very aware that black on black crime happens at a much higher rate the black on white. Since you are the expert in human behavior you must know that most perpetrator of crime do it in their own community. Black leaders don’t talk about it because they don’t want to be ones to justify people taking the law into their own hands. They don’t want to be one justifying next time a black kid get shot by a vigilante. I’m happy if it entertains you but the threat of my kid no coming home from buying candies is a real one. I don’t look up to leaders in the black community I look up to leaders in society.

          • Michelle ✓classified

            Oh dear. There you go again reading what wasn’t written instead of what was. I did not claim to be an expert on human behavior, but I absolutely implied I have been educated about it and even had a job where the skill was fine tuned.

            And yikes – You’re a Trayvon sympathizer. Should have seen that coming. If you you fear your children may not come home from buying candy, then definitely teach them to do the total opposite of what Trayvon did. The evidence proves he actually made it back to just outside his dad’s place (even his own mother admits that). He was home safe and sound, all he had to so was…go inside. But instead he chose to turn back around, pursue Zimmerman who was actually walking in the opposite direction to go meet police, decided to be a bad(_)_) and attacked the “creepy ass cracka”. That’s what got him killed. Solid fact as proved by ALL the evidence at the trial.

            I can tell you need the last word, so this is my last comment to you. You have my permission to have the last word. Just make sure it’s impressive to you, I won’t be wasting time reading it.
