Bryce Williams Was a Product of Society’s Obsession With Political Correctness
Bryce Williams – the gunman who shot dead reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward live on television – was motivated by his anger over “racist” comments made by Parker – a reflection of how politically correct insanity is now directly contributing to unhinged acts of violence.
The “racist” comments Williams accused Parker of making were not racist at all.
“The 24-year-old TV reporter who was shot and killed by the disgruntled ex-employee on Wednesday somehow angered him by using terms like ‘swinging’ by an address or going out into the ‘field’ while she was an intern at WDBJ,” reports the Daily Mail.
In a complaint made to the Roanoke TV station in 2012, Williams suggested that Parker’s use of the term “out into the field” was a reference to black slavery.
“We would say stuff like, ‘The reporter’s out in the field.’ And he would look at us and say, ‘What are you saying, cotton fields? That’s racist,’?”said WDBJ cameraman Trevor Fair.
When a manager brought in a watermelon to share with employees, Williams also took it as a racist insult.
“Of course, he thought that was racist. He was like, ‘You’re doing that because of me.’ No, the general manager brought in watermelon for the entire news team. He’s like, ‘Nope, this is out for me. You guys are calling me out because I’m black.’?”
According to Williams, 7-Eleven was also part of the racist conspiracy because it sold watermelon-flavored Slurpees.
“It’s not a coincidence, they’re racist,” Williams allegedly told Fair.
This confirms that Williams was radicalized by the race war narrative that the leftist media has been pushing since last year, in addition to the toxic politically correct environment being pushed by social justice warriors wherein anything and everything is deemed “offensive” or “racist”.
The gunman’s rage over remarks he took to be “racist” that had nothing whatsoever to do with racism is also a reflection of restrictions on free speech being promoted by major institutions, which define everyday speech as “racal microaggressions”.
As we reported this week, Rutgers University is encouraging students to anonymously report others for “bias incidents” if they involve so-called racist remarks and a host of other indiscretions, with the college at one point asserting, “there is no such thing as free speech”.
Last month we also reported on how the University of Wisconsin (Stevens Point) was teaching faculty members that all manner of harmless behaviors and phrases were examples of “racial microaggressions.”
Examples included; Asking someone where they are from or where they were born, telling someone they speak good English, telling someone that you have several black friends, saying that you’re not a racist, and complimenting an Asian person by telling them they are very articulate.
Williams also serves to remind us that the so-called “right-wing” by no means has a monopoly on violent lunatics.
Over the past few months, radical feminists and social justice warriors have made bomb threats against people and organizations they deem to be “offensive,” including Protein World and #Gamergate supporters.
Williams was preceded by James J. Lee, the gunman who entered the Discovery Communications building in Silver Spring, Maryland back in 2010. Strapped with explosives, Lee took three hostages before being gunned down by police.
His motivation for the attempted attack was a grievance over the Discovery channel not airing enough programs about global warming. Lee was radicalized by Al Gore’s climate change film An Inconvenient Truth.
In August 2012, Floyd Corkins entered the Washington office of the conservative Family Research Council intent on carrying out a massacre. He was thankfully shot and disarmed by building manager Leo Johnson before he could do so. Corkins was angered by the organization’s stance on gay marriage and used a Southern Poverty Law Center map to locate the address.
Corkins was carrying 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches during the attempted attack, a reference to the president of Chick-fil-A making statements against gay marriage, which was a big news story at the time.
This week’s tragic shooting illustrates how society’s obsession with being offended, fueled by perpetually outraged Twitter mobs, is now actually producing violet nutcases who are acting out on their radical impulses and killing people in the name of political correctness.
