Curtis Sliwa Offers His Solutions For “The Homies” Behind Flash Mobs: Beat Them Up
Reported by Ellen - June 29, 2011 -
Loud-mouth, self-aggrandizing liar and founder of the Guardian Angel vigilante group Curtis Sliwa visited The O’Reilly Factor last night (6/28/11) for a discussion about violent teen flash mobs that have broken out in cities around the U.S. Instead of a real law enforcement or teen expert, guest host Laura Ingraham trotted out Sliwa, now a radio talk show host, and another radio host, Cooper Lawrence. At least Lawrence has a degree in psychology, though she might want to see a shrink, herself, to find out why she lavished praise on Sliwa's racially-tinged, vigilante grandstanding. As for Sliwa – his biggest credential seems to be his penchant for violent sound bites. That and the bright red “crime fighting” costume he has worn since he first became a vigilante.
“How do police stay ahead of the situation?” Ingraham asked. Had news and information been Fox’s first priority, they would have made sure she asked a real police professional, rather than a dress-up version.
Sliwa claimed that the flash mobs started in Philadelphia by art students using Facebook, texting, etc. to do “people art.” He continued with his special brand of analysis,
And the homies saw this and said, ‘Yo, I got that same technology – wireless,’ and then all of a sudden these wolfpacks, ‘cause those were the terms used: wolfpacking, wilding – has suddenly become this mobbing up.
Sliwa worked in a lengthy plug for his organization before adding,
You have to use the language that they universally understand… pain compliance. The cops can’t be punching doughnuts out there. They gotta be busting their shoes and the way they do that is give a few wooden shampoos, a few attitudinal readjustments out there where they’re sucking concrete, outside of the mall, outside of the store – and you’ll see how quick that antisocial behavior will stop because that’s the language they universally understand. Then you can get into the nitty-gritty of why the furniture is upstairs and rearranged in the wrong rooms.
Wooden shampoos? Sucking concrete? Sliwa was advocating police brutality. That’s no surprise coming from the guy who said – also on Fox News air – that he wanted a bat to go after Rosie O’Donnell like a human piñata. But so long as you’re not criticizing a conservative, there’s just about no rhetoric too extreme for Fox.
Both Ingraham and Cooper agreed with Sliwa, saying he was “absolutely right.”
