How did Frank R. James, the obvious black nationalist arrested for Tuesday’s subway rampage, grow to be radicalized?

The social-media rants of the 62-year-old suspect reveal a person consumed with hatred of white individuals and satisfied of a looming race conflict.

“O black Jesus, please kill all of the whiteys,” was one meme he posted.

He’s not too complimentary about Hispanics, Asians and his personal race, for that matter, and claims to have had long-term mental-health issues. The 29 victims of Tuesday’s shooting have been a multicultural combine, as you’d count on in a crowded rush-hour subway prepare. Police say James detonated smoke grenades earlier than firing 33 pictures on the Manhattan-bound N prepare. Police discovered a hatchet, three ammunition magazines, fireworks and gasoline. It’s a miracle nobody was killed.

However no matter his psychiatric points, James sounds very very similar to different ideologically fixated, identity-obsessed killers who’ve emerged because the BLM-Antifa racial motion of 2020 and the hate speech it unleashed.

Like Darrell Brooks Jr., who allegedly plowed his automobile into the Waukesha Christmas parade final November, and Noah Inexperienced, the Nation of Islam adherent who rammed Capitol Police final April in a rapidly memory-holed assault, James espoused the rancid, racist ideology of black supremacy, as soon as identified formally as “black id extremism,” which we have now been assured by the FBI and different authorized consultants doesn’t exist.

Extremist ideology

James posted materials on social media linked to black id extremist ideologies, together with the Nation of Islam, Black Panthers, Black Liberation Military, BLM and a picture of black nationalist cop killer Micah Johnson.

“White individuals and black individuals, as we name ourselves, should have no contact with one another,” James rants in one in all a whole lot of YouTube movies posted to a channel underneath the person title “prophetoftruth88,” from which police took a screenshot to establish him as a suspect, and which was faraway from YouTube Wednesday.

In one other video, he weeps over the information that new Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson is married to a “white man,” whom he described because the “enemy.”

“You hear black individuals [inspired by Jackson] say my daughter . . . dreaming to be part of one thing that doesn’t need you be part of it . . . You’re not white, you’re not European . . . You need to power your self on these individuals and so they’re going to kill you.”

James, a fan of CNN, in lots of his movies appeared in entrance of a giant TV tuned to the left-wing cable channel. His grievances in opposition to “whitey” might be ripped from the teleprompters of any of the race-baiting hosts of CNN and MSNBC. The one distinction between the dehumanizing racial hatred he spews and the commentary by Pleasure Reid when she sneers at “white tears” and argues that Individuals solely care concerning the conflict in Ukraine as a result of the victims are “white and largely Christian,” is that James advocates violence. “I’m desirous to kill every thing in sight” he says in a single video.

“These white motherf–kers, that is what they do,” he says in a video concerning the Ukraine invasion, claiming it presaged a black genocide in america.

“In the end on the finish of the day they kill and commit genocide in opposition to one another. What do you suppose they gonna do to your black ass? . . .”

He additionally criticizes Mayor Adams and black individuals who don’t understand themselves as victims. “You bought your Ph.D. profession and good sneakers. You bought an schooling however now you’re only a carbon copy of the one that made you a slave . . . you’re there to serve these motherf–kers.”

Of white individuals, he says, “I don’t understand how well-intentioned they are often as a result of in the event you take a look at the historical past of black individuals on this nation . . . what number of actually stood with us or have been there for us after we ­actually wanted it . . . They didn’t go on our aspect till we began to stand up.”

In one other rant, he says: “I wished to look at individuals die proper in entrance of my f–king face instantly.”

‘Terrorist’ assault

We have been instructed by the NYPD inside hours of the subway assault that it was not terrorism.

But it surely positive seemed like a lone-wolf terrorist assault motivated by a hateful ideology.

Certain sufficient, at a press convention Wednesday, Brooklyn US Legal professional Breon Peace mentioned James had been charged with a federal terrorism offense.

In that very same presser, the FBI refuted studies that James was on any watchlist, saying brokers had not beforehand investigated him.

Possibly if the FBI didn’t waste a lot effort chasing down white-supremacy hoaxes, entrapping Trump supporters and investigating bogus studies of nooses in NASCAR garages, it might need been better placed to notice James’ hate-filled rants on social media for years.

Simply an thought, however possibly the FBI shouldn’t permit elite opinion and politics to dictate the place it locations its sources.

It wasn’t so way back that the FBI’s counterterrorism division acknowledged that black id extremist ideology was a home terrorism menace.

In a report dated Aug. 3, 2017, the bureau cited the 2016 bloodbath of 5 law enforcement officials by Micah Johnson throughout a Black Lives Matter protest in Dallas.

“Primarily based on Johnson’s journal writings and statements to police, he appeared to have been influenced by BIE [black identity extremist] ideology,” the FBI report says.

“The FBI assesses it is extremely seemingly [BIE] perceptions of police brutality in opposition to African Individuals spurred a rise in premeditated, retaliatory deadly violence in opposition to legislation enforcement and can very seemingly function justification for such violence.”

The backlash was rapid, with the media and activists accusing the FBI of racism. “There is no such thing as a such factor as black id extremism,” Kristen Clarke, president of the Nationwide Legal professionals’ Committee for Civil Rights Beneath Regulation, instructed Congress. “It isn’t an actual menace.”

Inside months, the bureau had deserted the time period black id extremism, and FBI Director Christopher Wray was telling Congress in 2019 that “what you would possibly name white supremacist violence” was behind a lot home terrorism.

The Heart for Safety Coverage, a conservative, Washington, DC-based suppose tank, claims that the FBI got here underneath “political strain from the Congressional Black Caucus and left-wing media to remove the class of black id extremism as a possible terrorism motivation.”

In accordance with Kyle Shideler, the middle’s director for homeland safety and counterterrorism, “The FBI, DHS and different parts of the intelligence neighborhood have routinely downplayed the potential danger of violence from black id extremists . . .

“Because of this political strain, there was minimal research and coaching carried out to coach legislation enforcement on the intricacies of the black id extremist thought, and its numerous strains and idiosyncrasies,” he wrote in a paper published Wednesday.

“As a substitute, the tendency is to disclaim that such assaults are politically motivated, and thus deny any terrorism angle for additional investigation.”

Finish id politics

How about legislation enforcement simply does its job, with out kowtowing to id politics.

How about acknowledging that racist hate speech has the potential of radicalizing unhinged individuals, regardless of who’s the meant goal. How about everybody able of affect, from the president on down, stops exploiting racial division for political capital.

How about we admit that America is essentially the most equitable, welcoming, multiracial nation on this planet, and we’d wish to preserve it that method.
