A Moment of Silence For All the Victims

A Moment of Silence for ALL the victims.

This past weekend, Jovan Belcher shot his baby's Mama during a moment of heated domestic dispute. Then he went to the Kansas City Chief Team Facilities and thanked the General Manager and his Coaches profusely for giving him a chance as an undrafted free agent to become a starter in the NFL, before walking away from them as they tried to talk to him, and shoot himself dead.

What really happened here? For the corporate mass media machine, it's an increased ratings opportunity. The chance to sell another juicy voyeur fix to feed the vicarious titillation addictions of the spectating masses. It's also another career opportunity for Journalist school graduates and Communication majors to stare earnestly into the camera lenses and emote passionately while they tell their viewing audience what they are supposed to think and feel about the story.

 If the talking heads are memorable enough in their performances, it could mean big things for their career trajectories as mass media personalities. Especially if they follow the creed of 21st century politically correct, progressive idolatry: WWSAD? "Never let a serious crisis go to waste." Never miss a chance to advance another facet of the Population CONTROL agenda!
In the aftermath of the nearly unfathomable events in Kansas City, that most mindless of sports clichés was heard yet again: “something like this really puts it all in perspective.” Well, if so, that sort of perspective has a very short shelf life since we will inevitably hear about the perspective we have supposedly again regained the next time ugly reality intrudes upon our games. Please.
Those who need tragedies to continually recalibrate their sense of proportion about sports would seem to have little hope of ever truly achieving perspective. You want some actual perspective on this? Well, a bit of it comes from the Kansas City-based writer Jason Whitlock, with whom I do not always agree, but who today said it so well, that we may as well just quote or paraphrase from the end of his article. “Our current gun culture,” Whitlock wrote, “ensures that more and more domestic disputes will end in the ultimate tragedy, and that more convenience-store confrontations over loud music coming from a car will leave more teenage boys bloodied and dead.”
“Handguns do not enhance our safety. They exacerbate our flaws, tempt us to escalate arguments, and bait us into embracing confrontation rather than avoiding it.” “In the coming days, (Jovan) Belcher’s actions” and their possible connections to football, “will be analyzed…. Who knows?” But here, wrote Jason Whitlock, is what I believe: if Jovan Belcher “didn’t possess a gun, he and Kasandra Perkins would both be alive today.”

Why yes, it's "Teh Gunz Culture!" It's not the State sanctioned and subsidized broken homes that create the conditions that make these atrocities regular occurrences in our culture!

I'm mystified. How have I lived for the past 20 years in the possession of a collection of various firearms and all other manner of lethal weaponry, and avoided the irresistible compulsion to shoot, stab, slice, bludgeon and kill any of my family, friends, acquaintances, co-workers and associates who may momentarily annoy or anger me?

Let's take a closer look at the reported situation:

Kasandra Perkins had gone out Friday night with girlfriends to a Trey Songz concert "to take a break," said friend Lynell Diggs. "He [Belcher] didn't want her going out with the baby at home," said Diggs, who was among the group of friends at the concert. Cousin Angela Perkins, who said she spent time at the couple's home both before and after their daughter was born, said the stress of having a baby just before the season and Belcher's constant time away from home for practices and road games "really put a strain" on the relationship. "There was just a lot going on. She was stressed. He was stressed," Perkins said. "It just started to go bad, but they had the child, and they were trying to make it work."

Upon reading this case, the very first thing I thought of was that I bet he was raised in a single mother household, and never learned to control his emotions or temper his masculine aggression.

In a minute's worth of googling my hunch was confirmed:

Belcher told the newspaper he credited his mother, Cheryl Shepard, and three older sisters with giving him support. "My mother is a hardworking woman," he said. "To see her overcome some things and succeed, it makes me look at things and say, 'This isn't even hard.' I didn't really have a father figure, so they provided nice guidance for me."

No surprises here. News reports, commentary and opinion pieces in the mainstream media social engineering machine will always wax poetic about these increasingly common tragedies with bromides like "Questions Remain" and "We may never understand why."

Most of us around these parts know exactly why these things happen regularly in our Brave New World Order's Matriarchy. Every person personally connected with this story is a victim in some shape or form of the real domestic violence occurring today - the destruction of the father headed family by the Feminist driven bureaucracy that supports, upholds and perpetuates the culture of the "alternative family" based on the continued subsidization of the Single Mother Household as the unstable and highly volatile foundation for society.

On a tangential note, Chief's Quarterback Brady Quinn had the best press conference statement on this grim affair:

“The one thing people can hopefully try to take away, I guess, is the relationships they have with people,” Quinn told reporters after the game. “I know when it happened, I was sitting and, in my head, thinking what I could have done differently. When you ask someone how they are doing, do you really mean it? When you answer someone back how you are doing, are you really telling the truth?
“We live in a society of social networks, with Twitter pages and Facebook, and that’s fine, but we have contact with our work associates, our family, our friends, and it seems like half the time we are more preoccupied with our phone and other things going on instead of the actual relationships that we have right in front of us. Hopefully, people can learn from this and try to actually help if someone is battling something deeper on the inside than what they are revealing on a day-to-day basis.”

I knew I wasn't the only one that has noticed we are in the midst of Mobile Affirmation Device - fueled Palm Zombie Apocalypse!

I wonder if she threatened to take the kid away and never let him see it again.

Oh, how logical. I guess we can make the same statement that if abortion were illegal, my husband's first child would be alive today. But I suppose that's different.

You're dead on about what has really happened here.

I agree, Also, there is a lot of discussion regarding whether men derive any benefit from marriage. I think we could argue that men do benefit from marriage (as in Marriage 1.0) insofar as children raised by married parents create more stable societies, and everyone, men and women, benefits from living in stable, relatively peaceful societies.


Renee said...

Hmmm, I wonder.

Have you heard of something called CTE (Chronic traumatic encephalopathy)?

Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) is a progressive degenerative disease, diagnosed post-mortem in individuals with a history of multiple concussions and other forms of head injury....CTE has been most commonly found in professional athletes participating in American football, ice hockey, professional wrestling and other contact sports who have experienced head trauma, and also in military service personnel exposed to a blast and/or a concussive injury, in both cases resulting in characteristic degeneration of brain tissue and the accumulation of tau protein. Individuals with CTE may show symptoms of dementia, such as memory loss, aggression, confusion and depression, which may appear within months of the trauma or many decades later.

Apparently, there are those who think that there's a connection between instances of violent behavior in athletes like football players and CTE.

Anonymous said...

Of course, it's ALWAYS the man's fault, right?

In all honesty, I have no sympathy for women like Kasandra Perkins when things like these happen to them. She certainly could have chosen a more stable man, but like most of you women, she preferred a violent thug. And why?

Well, she didn't want to give her 'Grrrl Power' and 'Independence'---evidenced by dumping the baby on this guy while partying with the grrrlz. No real man would have put up with her; so she didn't want a real man. She was another man-hating bitch who deserved exactly what she got.

Renee said...

Whoah, hold up there Eric!

First off, don't start with the whole "you're blaming the men" thing on me! I'm wasn't saying that "it's always the man's fault", so you can stop right there. I was pointing out something I've been hearing on the news about athletes and the harmful affects of concussions and CTE.

Secondly, do you know Perkins or Belcher personally? Do you know whether he showed previous signs of being a "violent thug" right off the bat*? Do you know whether she knew of his potential to be a violent thug. Was she psychic? From what I read, there appeared to have been no signs of previous physical violence.

And lastly, girls and guys in relationships go out with their friends. It happens. From what I read, she just went to a concert, and concerts do run long. Anyway, it's highly likely that as a NFL football player, there were times in which he had been out partying himself with the other players, while she was at home with the baby. And "DUMPING a baby" was his child too! You can't dump a child on someone if that person is the parent. It's like that nonsense where people have said that a dad "babysits" his child.

You didn't know her Eric! You're coming up with all these assumptions and what not (probably based on personal experience), even going as far as to called her a man-hating bitch and saying she DESERVED what happened to her! She didn't asked to be murdered, nor did she deserved it. It's a tragedy all around.

All in all, none of us know all the details that led to the incident, so it's no use to assume anything.

* = Personally I don't think that MOST women prefer "violent thugs". To me this meme is overexaggerated. Not saying it doesn't happen, but considering the entireity of the female sex, I don't think it happens as often as guys think. In cases of domestic abuse, the abuser doesn't start off as being abusive. Only much later on in the relationship, and the change is gradual.

But that's a whole other subject lol.

What Brady Quinn had to say was spot-on. Liek you, I think all the media tlaking and saying what theyr'e supposed to, and shaking their heads, "how sad" and "we'll never know the real truth" drives me crazy. This post is just spot-on and Quinn's quote really hits it on the head!

"girls and guys in relationships go out with their friends."
Girls and guys, maybe, but mothers and fathers don't, especially not with a 3 month old baby at home. It's selfish on so many levels.

Brian said...

Renee is just doing what she's been taught to do her entire life by the government schools she was no doubt raised in: deflect the blame from the actual cause, in an overreaching attempt to think "outside the box." There can never be a root problem, only "underlying issues" that cannot be solved.

Brian said...

FWIW, Whitlock's FoxSports colleague, Jen Floyd Engel, eviscerated Whitlock in her own column calling for more rights and less government. Surprised it has not been taken down.

Anonymous said...

Keoni and others will probably disagree with this; but this case is another example of why I don't believe in hypergamy. If women aren't kept within recognized civilized boundaries, their inclinations are NEVER towards the 'bigger, better deal' but always to the lowest and worst of males. Power and ego-validation motivate them; love and security matters very little to women.

redlegben said...

I have a serious problem raising a son in this culture,

redlegben said...

Women having sex with a man on a regular basis is fine, but holding hands in public is a HUGE DEAL. I weep for the future. My children's marital prospects will be vetted and it won't be easy.

Renee said...

Oh, yes, sure she had NO IDEA that this fellow was dysfunctional---she just discovered it was so after living with him and having a kid with him...

Well, abusers tend to not show their true colors until later on in the relationship. In the beginning, they act like the perfect person. Then they gradually begin to show their true selves.

As for staying with them once they finally know the other person to be abusive, some stay for love and in hopes that they will change (which is foolish), some stay because they have nowhere to go after the abuser has isolated from their family and friends, other stay due to financial reasons - they would be on the street if they left, and I think that some stay out of fear. There also may be psychological factors at work as well. Or it can be a combination of all of these reasons.

And women DO reject real men for subhuman thugs. The news is littered with stories every day about bitches just like Kasandra Perkins who are offed by some ugly, inbred punk usually even worse than Belcher.

Well you obviously miss the part where I mentioned that I DON'T believe that it NEVER happens.

But as I've said in the very beginning, we all can only speculate at what happened during their relationship. Apparently, there have been no signs of any abuse. To many people who knew them or of them, this came entirely out of the blue. But who knows...

Seriously though, you accuse ME of laying all of the blame on men in my very first comment (which is not true), yet you seem to put the blame entirely on Perkins and women in general (either they pissed the guy off or they MUST HAVE known the guy to be abusive from day 1).

Renee said...

You're wrong. It's called taking everything into consideration.

I was just pointing out something that has been brought up in the news regarding this case and other instances of athletes committing suicide or murder-suicide, who played in sports know to be connected with CTE. I never said in my comment that it was the real cause. It was just something to consider. Nothing more...sheesh

SarahsDaughter said...

Your first comment started with "hmmm, I wonder."
It's indicative of the search for answers to events like this that we women have been trained to do. That deep analysis; "let's look further into the potential causes of this, hmmmm." Akin to the fat, bearded, liberal male stroking his beard, searching for that philosophical nugget. (It's revolting)

All while the truth of feminism stares us in the face. It has become completely ludicrous that our media (your source) continues this facade of ignoring the pink elephant in the room.

The hmmmm'ing and naval gazing has moved beyond laughable to infuriating.

Your consideration of CTE first is quite like blaming the gun. And, had you thought it through, it would have been obvious that there are multitudes more men who have suffered head injuries and concussions who have never killed anyone.

Brian said...


I don't recall making a comment on hypergamy, but I'll rebut anyway.

Belcher was not the "lowest and worst" of males, at least not to the vagina. He was an NFL player, which makes him several things, all which give women tingles. It means he's usually making bank (minimum salaries are still over $600,000 a year, times the four years Belcher played), he has a strong and athletic body capable of protecting/dominating her, and being a pro athlete, especially in a small town like KC or at a small school like Maine (where he attended), gives the player celebrity status and access that regular joes simply do not have. The alpha qualities of this man (and other athletes like him) are off the charts. They score better than 99.9% of men alive.

The truth is, women will NEVER look for mentally stable, nice, or as Badger defined it, "normal' men because these men are the "lowest and worst" of them all. They look for alpha traits first, then consider how stable the man is. If a man is alpha enough, all his problems are swept under the rug because his alphaness is just too good to give up. There was no way ON GOD'S GREEN EARTH that any woman will walk away form a man who's alpha enough, even if it means potentially losing her life. The tingles and rationalization hamster are just too strong.

Martel said...

Women are usually absolutely awful judges of character. If the tingle's there, I won't say it's impossible for her to overlook other stuff, but don't count on it.

The ONLY way for a society to control primitive males is to allow other males to defeat them.

Any sort of matriarchy will forever give second chances, ask us to understand where the thug is coming from, and all sorts of other nonsense.

A patriarchy may lessen feelings of feminine empowerment, but it's the only thing that'll keep your ass from getting rubbed out.

'Abusers don't show their true colors until later on the relationship'

Like this? (UPI, 10/8/2012): "The girlfriend of Joran Vandersloot, a convicted murderer in Peru and a suspect in the death of Natalee Holloway, is three months pregnant, his lawyer said...Vandersloot, of the Netherlands, has twice been arrested in the 2005 disappearance of Holloway. He is also wanted in the United States on extortion charges...Vandersloot was sentenced to 28 years in prison in Peru for the 2010 slaying of Stefany Flores.'

Yep. She didn't know this man's character.

Don't think that this is anomoly, either.

Anonymous said...

I would agree that Belcher actually showed some signs of becoming a potentially decent human being. It does take an extraordinary amount of confidence and skill to become an NFL player at any level.

But from what I see, none of this mattered to the bitch. She seemed to depreciate him and denegrate him at every turn: and I'm willing to bet he got strong doses of the same treatment from his 'heroic single mom' and the femihags running the academic institutions.

I do understand where the Badger is coming from, but would qualify his statement by saying that ONLY negative 'alpha' qualities will attract women, if left to themselves. I suspect that they are drwn less by sexual 'tingles' than by the desire to feel superior to the males, whom they despise in general.

Martel said...

I agree that positive alpha can also be attractive.

Roissy a couple of weeks back wrote how it would probably inspire a tingle in your date if you kicked a sleeping homeless guy. This may well be true.

However, it would probably also inspire a tingle if you smashed the living daylights out of some guy who just kicked the poor homeless guy.

I believe in ethics, strongly. However, I recognize that strong morals on their own do nothing to arouse women.

If you believe in something, become Alpha and you will inspire others to follow you.

If you're a beta, the best you can do is follow the guidance of some alpha.

You can be the most noble Man on earth, but it does little good if nobody notices you exist.

redlegben said...

The solution for fathers is to realize that women/daughters need to be protected until married. All is not lost. An 18 year old virgin daughter with education (home-schooled) and discernment (father based schooling about men) will be in high demand of respectable young men of higher earning potential and upward mobility. These women are unguarded and that is women's nature. It is men's responsibility to take care of women despite their rejection of it. Love them (wives and daughters) so much you are willing to tell them the truth and force your decisions upon them.

Renee said...

Dude, if you're going to quote me, get it right lol!

I said this:
Well, abusers tend to not show their true colors until later on in the relationship....

Quite frankly, I'm not even thinking about the women like the one in your example. You made it seem that EVERY SINGLE female in a domestic violence situation knew what she was getting herself into from day one, and I was pointing out that many times that's just not the case. I'm not going to assume something like that. And as I mentioned before, leaving the guy may not always be as simple as we think.

Anyway, while there are some nutbags who fangirl over murderers and such, the majority of women don't go for guys like that. Not enough to say that women as a whole only go for and seek out the psychotic, violent, and unstable. But something tells me that you and a few others on here think otherwise, and go right on ahead.

I would agree that Belcher actually showed some signs of becoming a potentially decent human being. It does take an extraordinary amount of confidence and skill to become an NFL player at any level.

But from what I see, none of this mattered to the bitch. She seemed to depreciate him and denegrate him at every turn....

And you know this about her because??? Seriously, did you read an article that descibed their entire relationship in detail or did you know them personally?

Renee said...


All while the truth of feminism stares us in the face. It has become completely ludicrous that our media (your source) continues this facade of ignoring the pink elephant in the room.

Honestly, people acted like the whole incident came out of nowhere, with no previous indications. I was reminded of other similar incidents and the connection to CTE. I simply brought it up here. But if you or anyone else would've noticed, I never flat-out said that what HW said wasn't true. While I personally didn't go straight to his conclusion, I do understand it.

Your consideration of CTE first is quite like blaming the gun. And, had you thought it through, it would have been obvious that there are multitudes more men who have suffered head injuries and concussions who have never killed anyone.

How is it like blaming the gun??? A gun is an inanimate object that someone uses. CTE is a condition that someone has, so it's only that person and not some object. But maybe I'm being too literal.

As for the second point, there are multitudes of people with psychological or neurological conditions who don't kill people. Take post-partum psychosis for example, or schizophrenia. But there are cases where murderers did suffer from those conditions.

SarahsDaughter said...

You missed the point.

It's like blaming the gun in that the point has been missed.

What is the likelihood of a CTE study using a seperate group of men who have grown up without fathers?

Pink elephant.

Anonymous said...

In the first place, I ignored what you said about 'tendencies' not to see abusive behaviors because it isn't true. The vast majority of women ignore men who are responsible and DELIBERATELY seek out dysfunctional unstable males to exercise their Superiority Complexes over.

The women who lust after thugs like Joran Vandersloot are doing exactly what 'liberated women' do. I doubt seriously that there are ANY unmarried/divorced men who can say that their women left them because they found a 'bigger better deal.' Will-to-Power is fed by feminism and that is currently the dominant female relationship goal.

Even the Game/PUA guys---the honest ones---will admit that none of them have anywhere near the sexual or reproductive success rate as the typical homeless bum or violent felon.

As for Belcher, we can deduce what went on by his final act. Before his suicide, it's very telling that he went to Arrowhead Stadium and thanked his coaches before he died. His coaches were likely the only people who had ever valued the same things that were important to him; treated him with respect and appreciated his talents. The bitches in his life only denigrated him.

I suspect strongly that Jovan Belcher was a lot like James Holmes, Anders Breivik, or George Soldini. He took the proverbial 'red pill' but was already too badly emotionally damaged from years of female abuse for it to have done him any good and recoiled in the most violent way possible once he saw the truth. Admittedly, this is a phenomenon that doesn't get the attention from the MRM that it should.

'Reality' Doug said...

Another brilliant post. Brilliantly efficient analysis. I had the lousy mother angle and hypothesized a drug or brain damage angle for Jovan Belcher. The anger management issue from being raised by his mother alone, I'm embarrassed I did not think of that. And the mobile herd devices, did not see that one coming.

This was so obviously a rational decision related to family, most probably the loss of ever having a cleanly nuclear family. He appreciated his job and worked hard to get it. His identity was excellence forever defiled?

Certain change happens only when a majority of men say enough is enough, the consequences be damned. That is America's political heritage. How the hell is a young man to know where to draw the line in a system that says there is no line for family men. And that is his MSM sin, drawing the line at all. To some degree I can't help but respect the guy for living life on his terms according to his principles, I think. I suspect there is more bloodshed caused by productive men who bend over obsequiously and relinquish their means to tyrants. What a game is life.

redlegben said...

Feminists want to ban football. They are using the CTE thing to facilitate that end. They hate the idea of men competing in something they can't. So...eliminate that something.
