A slice of late-modern American life as a playground of liberal morality: a White policeman pulls over a Black motorist who was driving his three-year-old daughter without a child seat and instead of giving him a citation, buys him a child seat. That story, along with its photo-op hug between the two, is making its rounds on social media as a feel-good news item of the week.
After I relayed the story in a colorfully disapproving tone, Nikcrit asks if it would have made a difference for me if the policeman and the driver were of the same race. I replied “Yes.” Camlost adds, referring to the driver:
He’s got money for tats and tint but not a baby seat. That’s mighty black of him. And on his hilariously typical Facebook page he brags about his Air Jordans, too. The difference is that white men/fathers tend to have a sense of shame about being this needy, but black men are completely fine with it. Before 1990 the MSM wouldn’t have run an idiotic tidbit like this – these things are symptomatic of the Africanization/hyper-feminization of our society – personal responsibility being cast aside for feel-good stories about how it takes a village.
Nikcrit confirms the validity of that perspective:
Yeah, i don’t like it, either; i see the effects of kids having their selfish, conceited personal interests and me-first attitudes condoned and reinforced by the media and govt.
Lara speaks with a feminine sense for the immediate balm:
I don’t have a problem with what the police officer did, it’s not like he gave him drugs. Having to use a car seat is going to make this man work harder to take care of his daughter. Yes, he should have bought it himself, but I still see it as a good thing. Forcing lazy people to do things right is good. Especially, when they need to put in the effort.
Camlost then makes a series of observations:
It won’t be long before the lawsuits start rolling in due to haphazard enforcement of the baby seat law, somebody 5 states away will claim that they’re being singled out since this LaVonte guy didn’t get a ticket but they did.
Good point. The road to hell, as they say. He continues:
I also have a problem with it because blacks are always complaining about how their singled out for DWB. (driving while black) But this is a typical situation showing that they show a constant tendency to never have their shit together – license, insurance, registration and baby seat.
I weigh in:
Additional reason why that cop was irresponsible: ghetto Blacks’ fear of the police keeps many of them behaving with some semblance of respect for the law or for others. But if they start getting ideas into day haids that cops are teddy bears who reward your irresponsibility with buying you things… well, imagine the 80-IQ noggin processing that. ALSO: they aren’t going to respect a huggy teddy bear cop, making the inevitable future TNB front of a cop result in another Dindu Nuffin lying dead on the asphalt and another officer’s life destroyed.
Thordaddy, whose axe makes clean cuts, delivers the judgment. To decipher him is to agree with him:
There is only one way to describe the event that is this “pig purchase baby seat for nigger” and that is a false flag of the most degenerate mind. Because “we” are post-Liberation, it is the default assumption that all “feel-good” stories are in reality thoroughly infused with degeneracy. This manufactured story ACTUALLY turns a cop into a pig and a black male into a nigger. The totality of their mutual action is simply RADICAL AUTONOMY. The sum effect of this false flag is the subtle allowance of cops to be pigs and black males to be niggers and the healthy-minded white man must just stand silent in agreement. Pigs and niggers GET TO RUN A LITTLE MORE WILD TODAY and the healthy-minded white man is a little less free.
Peterike puts things in the context of the era:
Car seat episode. I see Indian and Arab and (((Russian))) types driving with kids not in car seats all the time. They just don’t care. More flipping the bird to the nation that let them in.
Diversity demoralizes because absent commonly agreed-upon norms, the public space favors the lowest common denominator in civic behavior.
The late Lawrence Auster analyzed the very same liberal morality that we are witnessing in the above story: Whites are immaterial spiritual beings capable of either being angels who do nice things for Blacks (and for other non-Whites) or devils who are racist. In this cosmology, Blacks are material-but-spiritless creatures bereft of moral agency whose purpose is to serve as clay for Whites on which to work out our moral struggle.
With every otherwise-sensible person who approvingly forwards such a feel-good story, you see how that mentality had glued itself to the average citizen.
