During a Monday press conference, a Kentucky sheriff blasted the media’s coverage of recent police-involved shootings and even expressed relief that a 25-year-old man shot by one of his deputies on Sunday was “white.”

Nelson County Sheriff Ed Mattingly first told reporters that the officers involved in the incident are “good men” who have no history of prior disciplinary problems.

When a reporter asked him if he was concerned about backlash from the community following the shooting of 25-year-old John Kennedy Fenwick, the sheriff revealed that he was glad to hear he was a white man. Fenwick is reportedly still in critical condition at a hospital in Louisville.

“We are glad that he is white, and we shouldn’t have to be worried about that. We do not want any backlash or violence in this community because people have been misinformed,” he said. “I think that the public needs to know how the criminal justice system works and what officers are able to do. And the media has not done a very good job of informing the public.”

    Policing in the NoBama era:

    “Oh thank God he’s White.”

    Pathetic…

    • Mack0

      Brilliant, brother. And it’s true. It’s so sad

      • Cid Campeador

        It just shows the level down to which we’ve been brought. Our police have been intimidated. When that happens, everything is going in to the S–tter.
        Special forces units are practicing their art in Texas and in Utah. Does anyone have a clue as to what the government agenda is?
        Will our own military be turned against White Americans?

        • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

          Why do you think they’re putting as many foreigners and non-whites as possible into the military and getting rid of white commanding officers? I guarantee it will happen at some point, and am surprised it hasn’t happened already (on a small scale in isolated areas). I think they want to destroy anyone that might be a threat to their New World Order, and those people are white. FEMA camps, etc., the “crazy conspiracy kooks” have been warning everyone but nobody wanted to listen!

          • Cid Campeador

            I got a chill when Geo. HW Bush following the Iraq debacle, mentioned the NWO.
            You’re right about the Officer Corps. All these new Generals and Colonels don’t come off like rough and tough guys like Schwartzkopf, and Odierno. They don’t project “tough”.
            I agree with everything that you stated.
            I used to laugh about George Noory’s guests on Coast to Coast when they predicted all these dire events. I’m not laughing anymore.

          • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

            Nope, it’s not funny at all. I LOVE Coast to Coast, listen to it most nights. One of the best radio shows of all time…although I miss John B. Wells as the weekend host.

    • dd121

      I think he was just making a point about the absurdity of overreacting to these police shootings of blacks. The leftists are trying to find the “perfect racist” so they can make their false point of how racism is still our number one problem in America. The leftist narrative never sleeps.

      • MekongDelta69

        Correct. I guess I didn’t make myself very clear.

        The “pathetic” in my comment was referring to how the cops feel they have to kow-tow to blacks (or any of the other ‘sainted, oppressed, protected classes’ of beings who’ve destroyed our country.)

    • Sick of it

      He’ll get his eventually.

    • Light from the East

      And “white lives matter” movement in Westport, CT was criticized by a guilty white privilege elite and others, you know……

  • dd121

    Backlash or blacklash?

    • stonepillow

      Clever!

      • Lexonaut

        Except it’s a tongue twister and a fingertips twister.

    • John Smith

      Need more blacklash applied to blackbacks.

  • Alexandra1973

    I hope he doesn’t apologize for that statement.

    • Who is going to pressure him into doing so? Al Sharp? The NAAWP? The overtly white nationalist editorial board of the New York Times?

  • TheCogitator

    The real open season by the police in on whites.

    • bilderbuster

      Even if the cops want to stop the Blacks from wrecking cities they will follow orders and stand back and do nothing and watch it happen if those are their orders.
      If Whites defend themselves and their property, the same crooks who issue the stand down orders are likely to order the cops to show no mercy on the Whites and the cops are just as likely to follow orders.

      • TheCogitator

        Unfortunately what you say is probably right. That is another reason I do not trust cops. I tell people to avoid blacks and cops — both are very dangerous. Cops have the weight of society backing them, and blacks don’t give a damn what society thinks.

        • IstvanIN

          While I’ll admit there are good cops we have to remember that a bad cops word is generally considered as much gold as a good cops (until he is really snagged). That, plus the blue wall of silence (we have a tragic example here in NJ of the Linden NJ protecting an out of control alcoholic cop).

          • John Smith

            Even the “good” cops aren’t really that good if they tolerate the bad.

          • IstvanIN

            Good point.

      • John Smith

        Remember how the St. Louis County cops told the Oath Keepers to leave Ferguson?

    • evilsandmich

      Unlike the sharp backlash, this type of stuff causes a slow rot of trust in regards to whites towards police, a relationship that is already fairly strained.

  • Chip Carver

    This is a double-edged sword for the people in charge of the former US. On the one hand, they are thrilled every time a White is killed. But the flip side is that they want more and more incidents that can be used to incite the gibmedats populations.

    • bilderbuster

      When the media ignores all of the Black on White violence that happens daily but explodes in “outrage” every time some frat boys sing a silly song and ruins their lives over it, this sends a powerful psychological message to the White population.
      The Masters of the Universe who own the media are saying “That’s right! And you can’t do anything about it!”

      • Lexonaut

        ” And you can’t do anything about it!”

        Actually, we can. We can arrange our lives so as to achieve most of the benefits of formal separation of the races by making sure that we are where they are not.

        Does this mean dislocation and inconveninece? You bet. But it’s better to be watching the bad news on TV than being part of the news.

        • John Smith

          I try, but many of the jobs are near where they are.

          • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

            You could save as much as possible, buy a small house in a rural area with land, pay it off, then cultivate crops and small livestock, and be as self-sufficient as possible…and work somewhere like Auto Zone to have spending money. Heck, maybe you could even get welfare…why not? It’s terrible to think that way but one more white on welfare means one less foreigner. And why not bleed the beast? It seems like the only way we’ll escape is to essentially “drop out” of society. I know a few places where you could live that way, it’s not impossible and if you have kids, it would be way better for them to be around other whites instead of living in a big house in a “diverse” suburb where they are essentially prisoners. Just a thought…because what we’re doing now is just funding our own destruction and better to live simply than be dead, right?

          • Dale McNamee

            There was a family of 10 who lived “off the grid” in Kentucky that had the children removed after some “concerned citizen” reported them…

            Also, they home school !

          • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

            I guess you have to really stay as far away as possible from most people.

  • Mr. L

    I just hope the police pull out of black areas all together, they’ll kill each other off in short order.

    • JohnEngelman

      At least 51 percent of blacks are not criminals. They had better start supporting the police.

      • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

        So there’s about a one-in-two chance of any random black you encounter being a threat to your safety? I’m pretty dumb about math but I don’t like those odds and I’ll remember that whenever anyone gives me any hassle about my “no black people” policy.

        • Lexonaut

          “So there’s about a one-in-two chance of any random black you encounter being a threat to your safety?”

          About half of them will do either jail or prison time before they are 50. This is an astounding statistic that I learned of only a year ago.

      • bilderbuster

        If it weren’t for the police protecting Blacks, White vigilantes would have have enforced some serious changes in Black behavior long ago.

        • InAFreeCountry

          The tipping point is going to come. Smarter (older) blacks already know this. When the S#l+ hits the fan, they don’t want to be around the ni66ers. When the White people wake up, they don’t want to be around.

    • Cid Campeador

      Perhaps it will inspire the “Good Blacks” to rise up as Black vigilantes and reign in their own sociopaths. They need to make their hoodlums feel unsafe.

      • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

        Nah, that’s not going to happen. But it’s a nice thought!

  • TruthBeTold

    I just saw on the nightly news that the principle who chided blacks for leaving the graduation ceremony prematurely was fired. The NAACP applauded the action.

    • dd121

      Zero tolerance for white racial slips. But liberals/blacks are free to say any hateful thing they please about whites without consequence.

      • Cid Campeador

        Dodn’t Oprah Winfrey who is honored more than the mother of Jesus,
        declare that all the older White people should just die off?
        Where was her tearful apology?

        • dd121

          I don’t understand what humans see in that example of the negro race.

        • Susannah

          This is apparently a very common view among blacks. I’ve overheard some of their very candid conversations expressing exactly the same desire. As if those “racist old White people” are remotely holding them back these days.

    • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

      People need to stop being so scared of getting fired. Let the non-whites try and run society without whites, after they’ve fired all of them for “racism”. Whites can just deal with each other, in a private transaction without any “business” type structures and leave the others to rot. This is getting ridiculous and what do the complacent, go along to get along, whites thinking? That somehow THEY won’t get targeted eventually?

      • Cato

        You obviously feel very safe and comfortable. Most of us do not–we face extreme coercion in our workplaces, and to be accused of racism would bring real hardship to our children and ruin our chances of ever getting another job.

        • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

          But they can’t destroy us all, if we all stood up and refused to allow them to censor us or punish us for our thoughts/comments on our own time. Maybe people should just concentrate on getting as financially secure and self-sufficient as possible and then just refuse to back down. I don’t have all the answers though and I didn’t mean to come off like a jerk, it’s true I haven’t worked in a long time and I’m very lucky to not have to…so my apologies. It’s just such a trap.

        • RaySist27

          I go OUT OF MY WAY to prevent any accusation of racism from happening to me at work. I hold doors open for blacks, I fist bump them, and sit with them at lunch. It is in my best interests and the best interests of my family that I remain gainfully employed. It’s also in the best interests of my race.

          • John Smith

            Play the game and bide your time.

          • mikey7777

            And there you go,and we wonder why whites are weak and allow our black overlords to rule over us.Unbelievable!

          • RaySist27

            Sir, I am hardly one of the ‘weak’ White people. Everywhere I’ve been in life I’ve always been the most racial aware White person in the room. Whites are raceless individuals with no racial loyalty or identity at all whatsoever, that’s not my fault. If the majority of White people thought like me, this country would be a vastly different place.

        • Cid Campeador

          A local talk show host in Southern NJ this morning compared the Presidency of Jimmuh Carter to that of Obama. He played individual quotes from Jimmy; each followed by one from Obama. They were identical in their message. Although Carter had only one term, many of the situations including the diminution of respect held for America, and the gouging of the military were frighteningly similar.

      • exposethebad

        Uhhh, we did try that already, have you seen Baltimore lately? That experiment doesn’t work.

    • Deacon Blue

      I wonder if “Professor” Saida Grundy of BU will also be fired and if the NAACP
      will applaud that action as well?

      • bilderbuster

        No. And that’s exactly how the media rubs it the faces of Whites to let us know there’s a double standard and we’re powerless to do anything about it.

    • Lexonaut

      “I just saw on the nightly news that the principle who chided blacks for
      leaving the graduation ceremony prematurely was fired. The NAACP
      applauded the action.”

      I spent six hours on Mediaite today exposing black hypocrisy on this story, doing battle with every brain dead racist black on the site. I was expecting site management to ban me but they never said a word or even issued me so much as a warning.

      They did, however, issue me a warning after I defended George Stephanopoulos in a post. 🙂

      Of course Stephanopoulos is a diehard Clintonista of the worst kind. Who didn’t already know that? The reason I got dinged is that site management has decided that, after the $75,000 in contributions to the Clinton Foundation, Stephanopoulos is now a political liability and must be terminated with prejudice.

    • evilsandmich

      Blacks at a graduation ceremony? A way should be found to get them to leave even earlier, like by having all the black grads go first so that their hootin’ and hollerin’ can be done and everyone else can enjoy the ceremony in peace.

  • It has been proven that cops are more trigger finger hesitant with blacks than with whites.

    • InAFreeCountry

      There is less to lose. White folks, as a community, figure that if another White gets shot by police, he probably did something to deserve it.
      Black people, however, will defend the worst of their worst criminals when it happens.

      • IstvanIN

        Defend? Blacks make heroes and martyrs out of their criminals.

        • InAFreeCountry

          We all have to work with the tools we are given.

            It seems the America was a 200+ year failed experiment. We fiddled while Rome burned.

        • exposethebad

          Yeah but you have to admit they do make some really awesome trash memorials. C’mon, tell me that used condom, beer can, beer bottle, paper bags, orange peels memorial in the middle of the road in Ferguson wasn’t just amazing……

          • Malgus

            LMAO!

            Okay, that was funny… upend a dumpster and call it a memorial… it’s more than they deserve, actually.

    • The Worlds Scapegoat

      That is why Darren Wilson got attacked. He was fed a bunch of crap that blacks are not violent.

      .

      • John Smith

        I don’t believe that propaganda would’ve lasted more than a couple months’ experience on the street.

  • 4321realist

    What this character is admitting is that lawlessness, violence, murder, mayhem, theft, looting and other forms of black terrorism works. And he’s relieved they won’t now have to endure that because the victim is white and whites don’t take to the streets with violence demanding accountability, but black terrorists do.

    And they do so nowadays by creating a myth that injustice occurred by fabricating events of a case in the face even of irrefutable proof that no injustice actually was involved at all. And they do that, because they don’t need their reports to be factual in order to have the backing of the press and to make the politicians and police apologetic and sycophantic. The lies they tell are all that is needed to have them treated as victims with promises galore from every quarter that everything and anything will be done to alleviate their disingenuous outrage.

    And they are accorded these Black Privileges all because they are fully prepared to kill, loot, burn, assault and tear up everything in sight if they aren’t treated as VIP’s.

    Farrakhan knew that when he said if they don’t get what they want, “We gonna tear this g****** country up.” Jesse and Al also know they can make the white weenies in
    power dance to any tune they want them to.

    And it should really be a grim example to whites that nothing they might do or say short of a violent response is going to be respected.

    The spinelessness of the white weenies in power and the crookedness of the MSM are absolutely amazing to behold.

    • Lexonaut

      “What this character is admitting is that lawlessness, violence, murder,
      mayhem, theft, looting and other forms of black terrorism works.”

      Of course it works. And until we pull all white cops out of minority communities it will continue to work.

  • Douglas Quaid

    This is what it has come to…not all corpses are equal apparently.

    • phillyguy

      you are exactly right, the majority of law enforcement these days will hesitate to shoot a black suspect because of the media, they breathed a sigh of relief if the suspect is white.

      • John Smith

        And blacks are a majority of the suspects.

    • SoulInvictus

      It is a safe assumption, I think, that there will not be a nationwide “White Lives Matter” campaign as a result of this.

      This event could be a catalyzing tectonic shift of white awareness. Unfortunately, I think we all know another day will pass, will little furor, no organization, hardly any notice or comment beyond sites like this.

  • Rhialto

    The reporter and the sheriff, probably unpremeditatedly, exposed the hypocrisy of Liberals. Their actions also put the Liberals in an awkward position: If the Liberals try to make a stink about it, they will get little traction. If they ignore it, their anit-White bias becomes even more apparent.

  • Jason Lewis

    When I read the article I thought he probably said “thank God he’s white” in a sarcastic manner. I was suprised to see the video and he actually meant it. Sick.

    • Lexonaut

      Not sick. If the alternative is riots, it’s not sick at all. Society is sick but not this sheriff.

      He and his men would be the first to face the howling savages, not you.

      • Jason Lewis

        So if the alternative is riots we need to capitulate to the mob? He could have simply said a officer killed a white man without including “thank God” on it. I agree society is sick if it made this man say this.

        • Malgus

          Y’all ever give any thought to the fact that maybe – in Dirtville Kentucky – the local whites won’t take no sh*t and if the diversities riot, it would be… unpleasant for them? And the Sheriff didn’t want that to happen?

          The good Sheriff was glad it wasn’t a diversity that got shot… if there were a riot, it wouldn’t be completely one-sided… Bardstown is pretty puny. A full-on riot would wipe out the town, given the we’re-not-gonna-take-any-of-yer-sh*t attitude of local whites…

          On the other hand, it would be the shortest riot in history…

  • Alpin Thueson

    Another brain dead, useless cop. A seemingly never ending line….

    • pennawhytmn

      I disagree. He was truthful. And, even if inadvertantly, he just said that White people are civil and more intelligent and understanding of law enforcement. At the same time, he was saying, Black people are much less intelligent people with no impulse control, and totally deranged thought patterns relating to how a civilized society works. I applaud what he said. What I am going to not like, is when this statement is spun against him and he is deemed “racist”, and they he squirms and apologizes for his “presumptuous, insensitive, careless” remarks. Then I would call him brain dead and useless.

      • Alpin Thueson

        Mattingly was truthful except he implied it was ok to shoot white people because no one would stand up for them. He should be looking over his shoulder IMO.

Where I’m from is one of the cloudiest places in the country and I love the sun. But the payoff is, almost zero blacks.

      • Malgus

        Sorry, Kentucky is full up. We’re not taking any more new people right now…

        But thanks for thinking of us.

        • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

          Don’t worry, I wasn’t thinking of Kentucky. Seems like an OK state in the eastern part, but you have a serious problem in the west.

          • Malgus

            Serious problem? What would that be?

            If you’re talking about Louisville, we don’t claim it… 🙂

          • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

            Yeah Louisville and south of Cincinnati is pretty bad, so I’ve heard. And it’s the same problem that a lot of states have, too many dusky brothas. I could be wrong though, it’s just what I’ve heard.

          • Malgus

            Okay, here’s the deal.

            Northern Kentucky – specifically Newport and likely Covington – can be bad. Can be bad. Go south a few miles, and it’s nice. Get past Alexandria, and it’s rolling farmland.

            Lexington has a couple bad spots, but is generally benign. No big problems there… yet.

            Louisville is a different story. They’re shown on First 48 regularly. It’s Injun Territory. I don’t go there unless I absolutely have to. I do go to the NAILE show there every year, and at least one or two gun shows per year. The convention center is waaaay over on the east side of town, and Injun Territory is over on the Western side, so no problems…

            Other than that? Not much to speak of. Sometimes we get a tweaker or a pill head doing something dumb… or a blood feud that goes hot. Pretty quiet and bucolic.

    • SoulInvictus

      We have been white flighting to little Orania’s for a long time. It does not work.
      Either we take a note from the rising tide of sentiments in Europe and expel leftist leaders and elements of our society, expel and exclude non-Europeans from our lands, and start making babies, or we will disappear from the Earth as a people within a few generations.
      It will likely require the charisma of a powerful cult-like leader…

      The last time a country did all of the above, the international bankers ensured the entire world descended upon them. So…there’s that to consider.
      This next fight will either be our last, or a reshaping of the entire world for the next 1,000 years. Either way, I suppose it will be that.

      • Rhialto

        Some of the international bankers didn’t descend on them; many of the descenders were not bankers (in fact many claimed to hate bankers)

    I have a just as likely a narrative as the story the cops are telling. Redneck gives the cop the finger and the cop gets pissed. Starts perusing the “perp” by hammering his accelerator and rushing after him in a huff. Turns on the lights and the perp breaks to stop. The officer is full of adrenaline at this time and doesn’t stop in time and hits the perps truck. The perp jumps out because he can’t believe the cop rammed him over giving him the finger. The cop shoots the threatening perp “for officer safety” and concocts the story that the perp
    hit him with his truck. Medals of bravery are bestowed.

    I almost started crying a couple of times on the way home from work today. They buried the black cop that was shot in Hattiesburg, MS a few days ago, today. You must have read about it on Drudge, or saw it in the news. The funeral was in Hattiesburg, where I work, and he is being buried in a small town four hours away. I drove along part of the route on the way back to Moselle, where I live. Every overpass on the way was crowded with people—probably more whites than blacks, but plenty of both. It was raining hard, and everyone was standing with umbrellas and American flags waiting for the procession. Fire trucks were parked, with American flags hanging from them. Police cars from as far away as New York were parked along the route. I imagine that it was the same with every overpass back to his hometown. The white cop that was killed was married to the cousin of a friend of mine, and left behind two small children. The crackhead “democrat” that killed him shot him in the face point blank. The black cop was trying to help when the “democrat” shot him in the belly. It was a “lucky” shot, it hit him just barely below the bulletproof vest that he was wearing. I have to wonder if the “democrat” was holding the gun sideways when he fired, same as on TV. The turnout, though, was amazing. Can you imagine that sort of thing happening anywhere other than the South? Seeing things like this give me some faith in my country, though I have had very little faith in it lately.

    Whites are the easiest target for government oppression because we don’t stand up for each other. Even here on Amren, we have commenters bragging that they don’t care about whites being raped or bullied, that they deserve it or that it is somehow good for them. No other race thinks this way. White people are always quick to come up with justifications for not showing racial solidarity like literally every single other group does. We are so quick to throw each other under the bus.

    That is the fundamental problem here.

    Nelson County?

    That’s Bardstown! Halfway between Lexington and E-town over on SR62… not exactly a hotbed of racial tension… if the guy who got shot was a diversity, and the diversities decided to riot, it would be a pretty small riot. All both of the diversities would be arrested, most likely…

    Still, Sheriff was saying the same thing the rest of us were thinking… glad it wasn’t a black guy. Don’t need the headache. Things are bad enough as they are without having to worry about importing a bunch of out-of-state diversities for a riot… in Dirtville Kentucky, no less…
