Magic Negroes and Magic Numbers

Based (squeak! squeak!)

You’ve probably heard of Jonathan Smith by now or seen his picture (above).

He’s the “based Black man” who is widely reported as having saved 30 people in the recent bloodbath in Vegas.

Here is the headline in the Independent:

LAS VEGAS SHOOTING; HERO ‘SAVES 30 PEOPLE’ BEFORE BEING SHOT IN NECK

Here is a headline at CNN:

HERO WHO SAVED 30 PEOPLE REUNITED WITH OFFICER WHO SAVED HIS OWN LIFE

Here’s the headline in the Washington Post:

HE WAS SHOT HELPING PEOPLE DURING THE LAS VEGAS SHOOTING. HIS HEROICS HELPED HIS PHOTO GO VIRAL

Here’s the headline in Good Housekeeping (WTF?):

DAD WHO SAVED AT LEAST 30 PEOPLE FROM LAS VEGAS SHOOTING NEEDS HELP PAYING MEDICAL BILLS

I could post hundreds more, all saying the same thing, and almost always with that magic number 30. By the way, that number is very, very important, because without it, the impact of these stories would be greatly diminished.

What you’re supposed to take away from these “news items” is the idea that when the Las Vegas massacre happened there was an altruistic and heroic Black man who stood up and somehow pulled 30 of his fellow citizens literally from the jaws of death.

You are not meant to look at the detail too closely or ask how he did this remarkable feat. He just did. That is why the number 30 is added. “Look, he saved 30 people, alright? What more do you need to know?”

This is why Benjamin Disraeli famously said, “There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.” Putting a number on something is a short cut to easy plausibility and unthinking credence. I mean it’s not like we haven’t seen this before, amiright?

Now back to our “hero.” So what are the facts? What did he actually do?

Did he leap up to the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel and wrestle Stephen Paddock to the floor before he could shoot off another 30 bullets of death? Did he use his “Based Negro” super senses to hear the bullets coming and push 30 people to the ground just before their vital organs were hit?

Again why “30” and why “save”?

What the media is actually saying here is that 59 people died in the Vegas Massacre, but if Jonathan Smith had not been there, the death toll would definitely have been 89. That is exactly what they are saying and that is the narrative they are running with. Literally.

Confused White people waiting for a Based Black man to lead them to safety.

The story in the Washington Post is reasonably detailed and “upriver” of some of the other stories so I thought a closer reading might answer my questions. From this it seems Smith went to the concert with nine members of his extended family, including his brother Louis Rust (who somehow ended up with a different last name):

When the gunshots started, Smith initially thought they were fireworks… But the bullets kept coming… Rust realized what was really going on and told the entire extended family — all nine of them — to hold hands and run. By then, it was a stampede. Smith was focused on saving his nieces — 22, 18 and 17 years old — but they separated in the crowd. He says he turned back toward the stage to look for them, he saw people hunched behind a sheriff patrol car at the northwest edge of the concert lawn. Others were so frightened they didn’t know what to do. He kept shouting, “Active shooter, active shooter, let’s go! We have to run.” He grabbed people and told them to follow him toward a handicapped parking area in the direction of the airport, away from Las Vegas Boulevard. It was a large field with several rows of vehicles. Smith and the others crouched down behind one of the last rows of cars. “I got a few people out of there,” Smith said. “You could hear the shots. It sounded like it was coming from all over Las Vegas Boulevard.” A few young girls weren’t fully hidden. He stood up and moved toward them to urge them to get on the ground. That’s when a bullet struck him in the neck.

So, what did we just read there? Basically the shooter shoots, people panic, get down, stampede, run in various directions, and Smith is not clear about what is happening himself. He even admits he had no idea where the shooting was coming from.

He yells “active shooter” and “let’s go,” but he moves in different directions, and he is obviously focused on saving his own family members. Finally he ends up crouched behind a row of cars in a handicapped parking area with a lot of other people.

I don’t know about you, but I’m just not seeing the 30 saved people yet.

What these accounts imply is that nobody would have had the idea of sheltering behind those cars without Smith’s “leadership.” I find this highly unlikely. In fact, at one point he even tells people sheltering behind a sheriff patrol car to leave that position, basically exposing them to fire. From this I would say that heading for the other cars was probably not Smith’s idea. Instead, it looks like he was just part of a confused mob of people trying not to get themselves shot.

In fact there were probably thousands of people doing exactly what Smith was doing, running around, telling each other to stay down or get behind whatever cover there was, etc. Oddly none of them are credited with saving 30 lives and interviewed on CNN.

Maybe this is because of basic maths. If thousands of people did exactly what Smith did and you multiply that by the 30 lives supposedly saved in each case, then you reach the odd situation where there are no longer enough people at the concert for all the lifesaving going on. Or maybe it’s because magic Negroes and magic numbers go so well together, and Black heroes are so rare and so necessary that when they don’t exist they have to be invented from whatever materials are available.

Now, contrast Smith’s actions with those of the other man mentioned in the CNN story, Officer Tom McGrath. Unlike Smith’s actions, which didn’t demonstrably save a single life, McGrath’s actions clearly saved Smith’s live and that of at least one other person. Here is an account from his local paper because the big media companies are not particularly interested in this story, preferring to focus instead on the “based” Black man.

He was in the crowd with his wife and another off-duty officer when 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, a poker-playing accountant and real estate investor, started shooting from his suite on the 32nd floor of the nearby Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. Chaos erupted. Behind McGrath, a woman was shot in the chest. He immediately took off his shirt and he and his wife put pressure on the wound. The shooting began again and the couple was separated in the ensuing stampede. “A lot of people had gotten hit,” McGrath said. “I was checking them, one, to make sure they weren’t my wife and, two, to see if there was any aid I could lend them.” He managed to escape the area and found Smith injured in a nearby parking lot, McGrath told reporters Wednesday, speaking at San Diego police headquarters…McGrath was looking for his wife when he found Smith. The officer used Smith’s shirt to pack the bloody wound, all the while telling Smith he was going to be OK. “I told him, ‘We need to go. I’ll walk your pace. I’m not going to leave you,’” McGrath said. The officer managed to find a pickup carting other injured people and he put Smith inside. He also helped tie a tourniquet on the leg of a woman who had been shot in the knee, he said. McGrath got into the truck and told the driver to find a police outpost. They found one a couple miles away. McGrath told paramedics Smith needed to go to a hospital immediately. Reflecting on the ordeal afterward, McGrath assumed Smith had died of his injuries.

The CNN article mentions McGrath stanching the extremely dangerous wound in Smith’s neck with his own fingers to stop him bleeding to death, while the above account mentions two other people — complete strangers — for whom McGrath provided vital emergency care, all the while not knowing if his own wife was among the dead or not.

What a contrast with Smith’s ineffectual actions that seemed mainly motivated by his concern for his young nieces, who were 22, 18, and 17 years old, in case you needed reminding.

    How many of you b****es would have done anything at that shooting? Furthermore, how many of you that’s posting on this board have the balls to spew out all your comments in the presence of those you are making fun of? You keyboard bandits wouldn’t put a dent in a pack of Kleenex but behind your computers, suddenly you are Superman. You aren’t “patriots” you’re p****ies hiding under your little bed sheets thinking you are tough. The audacity of you to think you are naturally superior than other races proves how idiotic you are. Here’s a tip for all of you though because you have to live life to the fullest right? Go outside, hopefully it’s nice out and you deserve a treat. Try something new! Something that will really get your racist prick motor going like say, skydiving! To make it even more interesting, jump with no parachute. Don’t worry, the ground will catch you just fine.

      1.) I’ve been wounded in combat protecting another man.

      2.) We in fact are getting off of the net and into real life. See Charlottesville two nights ago.

      3.) I’m not going to argue with you. I don’t like the stress that goes with that. Events will red pill those reading this soon enough. No amount of virtue signaling will make any White safe. The middle cannot hold and politics will be increasingly racially based. Whites will not awaken you to racial consciousness. Negros, mestizos, jews and muslims will.

      To my White allies, I think that post-Charlottesville and for the next few months at least we White Nationalists should play possum. Stay safe. Stay in touch with each other. Grow some deep roots. Events will come our way again.

    It wouldn’t surprise me if the “3 girls” that he was trying to help when he was shot were actually his nieces… and you know how black people will only use terms that describe the personal relationship some of the time… call their own siblings “my friend” or call their friends “my cousin”… When he was asked about what happened, he may have described his nieces as if they were 3 strange girls for a moment and the people taking his testimony made an assumption and “Smith” just never bothered to correct them because he foresaw attention and donations.

    Didn’t even read the story to know the 30 number was bullshit. How do you save people from shooting from a 30 story building. I mean maybe shielding one person from bullets, but 30 people? It makes no sense

    YES IN DEED , GREEK ( WAIYONA , A YONANIA I.E those who reveal / the seer´s learned a great deal from the Negros, or should i say Tuli wapa MASOMO / MATHOMO ( Math art of studying and Learning) .

    Or perhaps

    “Chicken Soup for the Globohomo NWO-compliant genderless person’s Soul”

    Thank you. I read this when it came out and figured I was just missing the part where he did something heroic.

    I wonder if that picture shared on pol and “predicted” by a certain “EurasianTiger” of an asian guy who shielded his White girlfriend is also fake. Did you see it? I think we should investigate.

    Next they’ll be telling us that they recently discovered a black guy who saved two hundred lives on 9/11. That the American Revolution was won by black people. That Rome was founded by blacks.

      6 gorillian more jews would have died if it weren’t for the Negro mess hall Sargent and oatmeal team 6 liberating the death camps in WWII.

        You do realize Steven Spielberg actually made an entire fake documentary about Blacks “liberating” Jews from “Nazi death camps,” right? It was called “The Liberators” and they would have gotten away with it, except actual World War II veterans complained that people were misrepresenting their WWII service.

        When caught, they basically admitted they made up the whole thing but justified it because they were trying to “stop anti-semitism in the Black community.”

          I can’t wait for truthful documentaries that expose the holohoax for what it really is to go mainstream. Sick of these filthy Jewish lies.

            To kill 6 million people in five years you would have to kill one person every 30 seconds (actually it is about one every 26 seconds). That would require 1 every 30 seconds, working non-stop 24/7 for the entire 5 years. That is not politics, or hatred, or antisemitism, or racism. It is math: 60 times 60 times 24 times 365 times 5 divided by 6 million. Supposedly the Nazis killed 12 million in 5 years. That is about 1 every 15 seconds. It does seem like such a task would be a bit difficult, even with healthy people, fighting two wars, and we know the concentration camps were not working 24/7 with total efficiency for all five years of WWII. Again, this is not hatred. It is just math and a little realism.
