No surprises at all - the numbers instead of the narrative

| No Comments

A lot of people follow the narrative.  Hard not to do when every media outlet is pushing the same buzzwords 24/7.  You can see this back a few years ago when Build Back Better was the buzzword of the day (here, here, here and here for starters). The "fact" that white cops are murdering unarmed black dindus "innocents" is another narrative being pushed by people who want to balkanize and divide us. Of course, anyone who speaks the truth must be silenced.  Don't want the proles to think for themselves. From the London Daily Mail:

White Thomson Reuters data scientist says he was FIRED from $350k role by woke bullies for sharing data showing cops kill more unarmed white people than black people - and claiming BLM contributed to deaths of thousands

    • Thomson Reuters' former director of data science Zac Kriegman claimed he was fired after sharing his research on race and police killings with colleagues
    • Kriegman posted stats showing cops in the US killed more unarmed white people than black people since 2015
    • He said he was ridiculed and bullied by colleagues, and when he asked leadership for help, his post was taken down and he was fired
    • Kriegman said he wanted his research to spark a conversation amongst reporters at the company's newswire service about how to cover the issue
    • He's the latest person to claim they faced hostility from a woke mob running rampant in the workplace

A former director of data science at Thomson Reuters said he was fired for sharing research on the company's internal social media platform that showed police killed more unarmed white people than black people and that the Black Lives Matter movement allegedly caused the deaths of thousands.

Zac Kriegman, who worked at Thomson Reuters for six years before being fired last summer, claimed he was let go from his $350,000 job because he stood against the company's reporting conventions on BLM in order to dispel what the 'false narrative' that black people were the largest victim of police violence.

In a piece first published on Bari Weiss's Substack, Common Sense, Kriegman said he shared with collogues concerns that reports saying unarmed black people are killed by police at a disproportionately higher rate than their white counterparts was not accurate.

The Washington Post, which has led the effort to document fatal police shootings, found that police had killed 3,024 white people and 1,596 black people since 2015.

The findings highlight that black people were disproportionately affected by the shootings as they make up only 13 percent of the U.S. population, but Kriegman said the rhetoric was incomplete and when he tried proving it, he said he received backlash from fellow white co-workers.

'I was publicly derided as a 'troll,' 'confused,' 'laughable,' and 'not worth engaging with or even attempting to have an intelligent conversation' with,' Kriegman wrote.

Yeah - it really is that simple.  That cut and dried.  If you do not hew to the narrative, you will be run over.  You will be made a non-person. Eliminated.  Your voice will be silenced. This is what communists do. They have nothing to offer.  Nobody will vote for them so the  have to lie and cheat to gain and hold onto their power.

Much more at the site - they site a couple other examples of this.
What you read in the mainstream media is NOT what is happening.
It is propaganda from the state.
