Based partly on the Jussie Smollett Hate Hoax, the Senate has passed an anti-lynching law that makes some kinds of mob violence a Federal crime, as Steve Sailer notes below.
These laws are aimed at entirely imaginary white violence, of a kind that hasn’t actually been seen in the US since the early Sixties.
However, as John Reid noted in a column titled New Gun Control Laws Aimed At “Bitter, Clinging” Whites, But Will Hit Blacks Hardest—As Usual, these laws will hit the kind of people who actually commit crime much harder.
And who, in 21st century America, commits lynch-mob style attacks on people? Why, it turns out to be blacks. I wrote in 2015 that you are likely to be mobbed to death if you're involved in a fatal crash in a black neighborhood. In “Black Lives Matter”—Unless It’s Just Another Car Crash Lynching, I mentioned a several instances of this happening:
For coverage of what happened to Steve Ustash (who survived, with brain damage) see Beating of White Driver by Angry Mob After He Accidentally Ran Over Young Boy Ruled Not a Hate Crime, By Ryan Gorman, Daily Mail (London), April 4, 2014.
For coverage of lynch-mob style killing of Anthony Stuckey and Jack Moore, two black men killed by a black mob, see Jet Magazine, a black magazine which sometimes has clearer reporting on race than the MSM, because they never think race is not relevant.[ Chicago Fatal Van Crash; Deadly Vigilantism Draws National Attention, Jet, August 29, 2002]
So could an attack like this be Federally prosecuted now? Well, it depends on the prosecutors. The gun control article I mentioned above quoted Bill Nettles, the Obama-appointed US attorney for South Carolina (a former public defender) as saying "I'm not interested in picking up 18 year-olds and giving them 15 years in prison because they have a gun." We assume that "18 year-olds" means the same as "youths" or "teens".
As Steve Sailer also pointed out recently, there has been a wave of anti-Semitic violence in Crown Heighs, including mob attacks that, unlike Jussie Smollett's, are visible on video, mostly perpetrated by "young men of color". Will prosecutors be willing to put these "teenagers" in jail for 20 years, or will they save up all of their energy for the extremely rare cases of white violence?
