Seb Gorka Won’t Acknowledge America’s Epidemic Of White-On-White Crime


Sebastian Gorka, the hate group leader and academic fraud who was fired from the Trump White House because he could not get a security clearance, appeared on the right wing Sinclair Broadcasting network last night to reinforce racist falsehoods about a wave of “black-on-black crime.”

Responding to a question about gun laws, the Hungarian fascist said that “our big issue is black African gun crime against black Africans” who have been “murdering each another by the bushel” for the last 40 years “in the cities run by Democrats.”

But as statistics released by the Department of Justice last Thursday show, the vast majority of all crimes are committed within racial groups. In other words, Gorka could just as easily say that “white Europeans” are killing each other “by the bushel” in cities run by Republicans.

From 2012 to 2015, the Bureau of Justice Statistics reported that the rate of white-on-white violent crime was 12.0 per 1,000. By comparison, black-on-black crime rates were only somewhat higher at 16.5 per 1,000.

Neither race was as nonviolent and law-abiding as Latinos, who were slightly more likely to be victims of interracial crime.

“The rate of Hispanic-on-Hispanic crime (8.3 per 1,000) was about double the rate of white-on-Hispanic (4.1 per 1,000) and black-on-Hispanic (4.2 per 1,000) violent crime,” the BJS report continues.

So it would be just as correct to claim that Hispanic Americans, not whites, are the most civilized people in the United States. But Gorka is unlikely to ever say that.

Those numbers reflect the results of the National Crime Victim Survey of 2000, which found that 73 percent of violent crimes against white people were committed by other whites. So why isn’t Gorka talking about that?

The answer, of course, is that accurate numbers do not support the racist Breitbart narrative.

Before he became Donald Trump’s campaign CEO, Stephen K. Bannon reacted to the Black Lives Matter movement by creating a whole new section on the website devoted to “black crime” reporting. It was all part of the effort to normalize white supremacist ideology under the rubric of “law and order.”

“This is a social issue,” Gorka claimed. “Allow the police to do their jobs and rebuild those societies. Legislation will not save lives.”

Town hall moderators for Sinclair, an aggressively pro-Trump network of local TV stations, were clearly shocked by Gorka’s statement, as “Black Africans” is a linguistic construct from Apartheid South Africa.

“I assume what he’s talking about is African Americans,” one of them clarified immediately.

“Yes,” Gorka affirmed.

“Well, that’s not what you said,” she replied. Watch:
