Joshua Blahyi, a Nation Turns its Lonely Eyes to You

Despite the affected yearnings of black-clad baristas in balaclavas, anarchy is never more than a temporary condition. It is an interregnum between reigns. Order may be capricious and brutal, but a form of it always takes root. And that is why the gunfire lullaby in cities like Baltimore will eventually prompt a vacuum fill. With 30 shootings (and nine fatalities) there over the weekend alone, it seems the only good news to escape that cursed city is the bangers are putting more rounds on target.

Though as white authority–and its concomitant civilization–finally relinquishes an already tenuous grasp, what emerges from the void will appear to our eyes as anarchy. But that impression will not be entirely accurate.

Order finds a way. And that way will likely be found in the person(s) of those very much like Joshua Blahyi. As background, Mr. Blahyi fell into some ill repute a few years prior during a fairly well chronicled stint as a nudist cannibal warlord. He was accused, and candidly admitted to, devouring the remains of freshly slaughtered infants, dissecting pregnant women to settle wagers on whether they were carrying a boy or girl, hacking the limbs off of live prisoners until they lied as torsos in the mud, and recruiting child slave-soldiers as young as 10 to dismember and devour under his tutelage. When asked of the final butcher’s bill–how many had he murdered in the end–Mr. Blahyi estimated that he personally, or fighters directly under his command, had dispatched no fewer than 20,000 souls. Perhaps some of you are familiar with his formal military designation: General Butt Naked.

Today the former star officer is a cherubic Christian pastor spreading the gospel in his native Liberia. Like him on Facebook today! And while some callous readers may not find it in their hearts to forgive, it’s not like the man was ever an immoral monster–like say John Derbyshire. There are no records, or even allegations, of racism by Blahyi in either his military or civilian roles. GBN only poured rivers of blood, while Enoch Powell actually talked about it. Obviously we know which was more repugnant and reprehensible.

Though returning to Baltimore, and the weedy sidewalks of cities like it, this is how order will come. Not as flamboyant as Blahyi, for who is? (hand down Idi). But Big Man politics follows Africans well beyond Africa. And no man is bigger than he who is perched atop a dune of corpses.

So the incipient warlords of Baltimore now jostle for rank on streets increasingly ceded by Western civilization. Let’s hope they can at least keep their damn clothes on.

  1. Tom Chittum, in his book “Civil War 2: The Coming Breakup of America” (PDF) predicts that the gangs will immediately fill the power vacuum when the US government loses control. That sounds credible.

    White men need a gang of our own.

  2. Twenty thousand butchered, eh? If there’s anyone in Detroit or Baltimore who shows signs of having similar talents to Blahyi, they should be given all the assistance and subsidies possible.

  3. Here’s a question. What might you imagine Joshua Blahyi’s mother would have to say of her son?

    You know what’s coming.

    Wait for it…

    He a good boy!

    “He is a good boy,” says his mother, who now cooks for the former child soldiers. “Generous and funny,” say his children, who now live with him. “A new person,” says his wife.

    If our descent into madness wasn’t hilarious it wouldn’t be worth a damn. Though if what is probably the most prolific mass-murderer still drawing breath can make the rigorous Good Boy cut, who on Earth wouldn’t? Wait, an image is starting to form…

  4. Baltimore is waiting for Butt Naked. If you don’t care to sip the ambrosia from black cheeks, here is a capsule:

    We hate you whites, die!

    Whites decamp.

    Please come back, hep us!

    BALTIMORE (AP) — A 31-year-old woman and a young boy were shot in the head Thursday, becoming Baltimore’s 37th and 38th homicide victims so far this month, the city’s deadliest in 15 years.

    Meanwhile, arrests have plunged: Police are booking fewer than half the number of people they pulled off the streets last year. Arrests were already declining before Freddie Gray died on April 19 of injuries he suffered in police custody, but they dropped sharply thereafter, as his death unleashed protests, riots, the criminal indictment of six officers and a full-on civil rights investigation by the U.S. Justice Department that has officers working under close scrutiny.

    “I’m afraid to go outside,” said Antoinette Perrine, whose brother was shot down three weeks ago on a basketball court near her home in the Harlem Park neighborhood of West Baltimore. Ever since, she has barricaded her door and added metal slabs inside her windows to deflect gunfire. “It’s so bad, people are afraid to let their kids outside,” Perrine said. “People wake up with shots through their windows. Police used to sit on every corner, on the top of the block. These days? They’re nowhere.”

    West Baltimore residents worry they’ve been abandoned by the officers they once accused of harassing them, leaving some neighborhoods like the Wild West without a lawman around. “Before it was over-policing. Now there’s no police,” said Donnail “Dreads” Lee, 34, who lives in the Gilmor Homes, the public housing complex where Gray, 25, was chased down. “People feel as though they can do things and get away with it. I see people walking with guns almost every single day, because they know the police aren’t pulling them up like they used to.”

    Police Commissioner Anthony Batts said his officers “are not holding back,” despite encountering dangerous hostility in the Western District.
    “Our officers tell me that when officers pull up, they have 30 to 50 people surrounding them at any time,” Batts said. Batts provided more details at a City Council meeting Wednesday night, saying officers now fear getting arrested for making mistakes.
    “What is happening, there is a lot of levels of confusion in the police organization. There are people who have pain, there are people who are hurt, there are people who are frustrated, there are people who are angry,” Batts said. “There are people, and they’ve said this to me, `If I get out of my car and make a stop for a reasonable suspicion that leads to probable cause but I make a mistake on it, will I be arrested?’ They pull up to a scene and another officer has done something that they don’t know, it may be illegal, will they be arrested for it? Those are things they are asking.”

    Protesters said Gray’s death is emblematic of a pattern of police violence and brutality against impoverished African-Americans in Baltimore. In October, Batts and Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake invited the Justice Department to participate in a collaborative review of police policies. The fallout from Gray’s death prompted the mayor to ramp that up, and U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch agreed to a more intensive probe into whether the department employs discriminatory policing, excessive force and unconstitutional searches and arrests.

    Baltimore was seeing a slight rise in homicides this year even before Gray’s death April 19. But the 38 homicides so far in May is a major spike, after 22 in April, 15 in March, 13 in February and 23 in January. With one weekend still to go, May 2015 is already the deadliest month in 15 years, surpassing the November 1999 total of 36.
    Ten of May’s homicides happened in the Western District, which has had as many homicides in the first five months of this year as it did all of last year.
    Non-fatal shootings are spiking as well — 91 so far in May, 58 of them in the Western District.

    The mayor said her office is “examining” the relationship between the homicide spike and the dwindling arrest rate. Even before Gray’s death, police were making between 25 and 28 percent fewer arrests each month than they made in the same month last year. But so far in May, arrests are down roughly 56 percent. Police booked just 1,045 people in the first 19 days of May, an average of 55 a day. In the same time period last year, police arrested 2,396 people, an average of 126 a day.

    In fact, police did not make any arrests in the triple digits between April 22 and May 19, except on two occasions: On April 27, when protests gave way to rioting, police arrested 246 people. On May 2, the last day of a city-wide curfew, police booked 140 people.
    At a news conference Wednesday, Rawlings-Blake said there are “a lot of reasons why we’re having a surge in violence.” “Other cities that have experienced police officers accused or indicted of crimes, there’s a lot of distrust and a community breakdown,” Rawlings-Blake said. “The result is routinely increased violence.”

    “It’s clear that the relationship between the commissioner and the rank-and-file is strained,” she added. “He’s working very hard to repair that relationship.”
    Emergency response specialist Michael Greenberger cautions against directly blaming police. The founder and director of the University of Maryland Center for Health and Homeland Security, the spike in homicides is more likely a response to Gray’s death and the rioting.

    “We went through a period of such intense anger that the murder rate got out of control. I think it’s been really hard for the police to keep on top of that,” he said.
    Lee disagrees. He says rival gang members are taking advantage of the police reticence to settle old scores. “There was a shooting down the street, and the man was standing in the middle of the street with a gun, just shooting,” Lee added. “Usually, you can’t walk up and down the street drinking or smoking weed.

    Now, people are everywhere smoking weed, and police just ride by, look at you, and keep going. There used to be police on every corner. I don’t think they’ll be back this summer.”
    Batts acknowledged that “the service we’re giving is off-target with the community as a whole” and he promised to pay special attention to the Western District.
    Veronica Edmonds, a 26-year-old mother of seven in the Gilmor Homes, said she wishes the police would return, and focus on violent crime rather than minor drug offenses.
    “If they focused more on criminals and left the petty stuff alone, the community would have more respect for police officers,” she said.

    • Agreed. Vice will sometimes inadvertently reveal what they don’t want you to observe.

      That one in particular was so revealing it surprises me they didn’t shitcan the whole reel. Though, of course, it wasn’t revealing enough to forestall their doctrinaire “racist” accusations in subsequent efforts.

  5. I was trying to find some information on the less notorious but no less sanguineous feud between GBN contemporaries General Mosquito and General Mosquito Spray. From titles alone one may infer an acrinmonious relationship.

    General Mosquito, Sam Bockarie, appears to have been a fairly reputable african warlord: countless rapes, mutilations, and executions. Typical teen behavior with no serious offenses, such as racial profiling, anywhere blemishing his record.

    He became somewhat of an aide-de-camp to Chuck Taylor, a formidable teen in his own right, who eventually sprayed his pal mosquito (with 7.62 rounds). Though before that ignominious end he reportedly maintained a healthy rivalry with Mosquito Spray. If any readers come across reports of their skirmishes, please deposit them below.
