Black Mob Beats Up 2 Whites Rescuing Girl

From the New York Post:



August 11, 2008

A wolf pack of at least 30 thugs viciously attacked two hero ex-Marines in Brooklyn after they rescued a teenage girl who was being assaulted, police and witnesses said yesterday.

And when the brother of one of the former servicemen tried to come to his rescue during the July 25 melee in Coney Island, he was beaten into a coma.

The former leathernecks, Valentyn Olenyev, 23, and Boris Bukler, 22, Russian émigrés who served tours in Iraq, were walking a female friend to her parked car on West 23rd Street at 12:30 a.m. when they spotted two men holding the screaming teen by her hands and legs.

“She was yelling, ‘Help!’ ” said Olenyev. “I asked her, ‘Do you need help?’ She said, ‘Yes!”

“It wasn’t our intention to get into a fight,” said Bukler. “We said, ‘Let the girl go, and we’ll leave.’ We told them, ‘Stop.’

“She was screaming, and all we did was look to help her. I got a bottle smashed over my head, and after that, I started fighting. But I got beat down.

“I was getting my ass kicked by 50 people.”

Their friend called Olenyev’s brother, Ivan, 22.

“When I showed up, there were a lot of people there, people on the left and people on the right, and then – ‘Boom!’ – I got hit and passed out,” Ivan told The Post from his hospital bed.

Police sources said he was pounded senseless by 240-pound Timothy Dixon, 23, who was swinging a metal baseball bat.

Ivan suffered multiple facial fractures and will require plastic surgery.

The NYPD is looking for Dixon, who remains at large.

The teenage girl fled after the melee.

The two former Marines, meanwhile, insist that the violence had racial overtones, although the assault has not been labeled a bias crime.

Bukler said, “Those in the crowd were yelling, ‘Hey, white boys, you’re in the ‘hood now!’ We were yelling back, ‘We don’t care – we live here!’

Of course it isn’t a hate crime.

The victims were white and the perps (all 50 of them) were black.

    Of course it was a hate crime. Black people are full of rage towards everyone. But if 5 white guys beat up a black, it would be on the front page of the New York Times. Check the numbers, blacks rob, rape and assault whites at a rate 10 times greater than white on black. Negros are doing this everywhere they live, whether it is in Africa, Europe or America. I think eventually there will be a race war in this country. I urge white readers to arms themselves and learn how to use these weapons properly. Because one day you will face the mob of African savages. Are you going to let them beat the crap out of you?

      Spot on, plato. Look for an increase in this type of behavior. After all, they have a high-profile cheer leader in the White House. Anyone who doubts this, should pause and reflect on the Gates incident and the response it evoked from someone who should know better, but doesn’t care. Obama is our very own racist-in-chief, and apologizes to no one for it. Rather, he encourages it, both actively and passivly.

      Be aware, and be prepared. It’s only a matter of time.

      Plato, while I agree that this crime was racist I don’t think it’s right to stereotype everyone. This sort of thuggish behavior is not just a skin color issue, but common among minorities in larger cities in low income areas (especially public housing). The race / victim mentality and thug culture probably contribute to it.

      But these observations certainly don’t apply to everyone – at least not in the small city where I live. That kind of race violence against whites would be unthinkable here. It’s just the thugs in the heavy Democratic urban sprawls that seem to have issues. As for the right to bear arms, well New York is a liberal gutter and they’ve banned legal conceal / carry. You can’t even purchase a pepper spray without buying it from a “special” center and registering it. So those Marines were sitting ducks for the racist scum.

    • David says:

      Beautyofreason, you see the issue here is NY just isn’t tough enough! Metal base ball bats need to be registered too, just to be sure we should include whiffle bats as well.

      Just for an experiment they should take two cities with similar crime rates and racial makeups. One city outlaws all guns and the other outlaws durags, violent rap and idle assembling of 3 or more people. Wonder which one would see the crime rate drop?

    I have to agree more with Beauty than with Plato. I’m not saying it could not happen in a small area but it does tend to happen more in the areas where welfare, crime and just plain old thuggishness is a way of life. These people probably have never worked for an honest days pay in their entire lives.
    While you may be on to something about the One in the White House, I don’t think it really matters much to them either way. They’re scum, they’ll always be scum and unfortunately while these young men served their country, they feel they need to be served all the time.
    Of course it won’t be a hate crime. As Wasserman Schultz from FL says the military doesn’t need to be included in any hate crime bill. In her mind they cause all the trouble. I saw something on tv where she said she was “quietly” suffering from breast ca. I know a lot of young women including my sister in law & a friend from high school who are going through surgeries and chemo/radiation as I type this. I don’t really feel any sympathy for her anymore than I would for someone I don’t know. It’s terrible I know but people like her who hold our military men and women in contempt make me ill.

      …..”While you may be on to something about the One in the White House, I don’t think it really matters much to them either way…..”

      I disagree, catie. I live not 50 miles from where the SEIU thugs assaulted Kenneth Gladney, a black conservative, at the Russ Carnahan “town hall” meeting. Trust me, that would not have happened if the union member, a black man, hadn’t felt empowered by Obama’s heated rhetoric. This wasn’t a mob of blacks, it was black-on-black hate. This, in a large metro area with a history of better than average race relations. While I live in a rural area that is a bedroom community to St. Louis, I can tell you personally that the blacks I interact with have been emboldened. I find myself bewildered that people with whom I’ve interacted for decades are now exhibiting attitudes to whites in general, and to me specifically, that its ‘payback’ time. When I ask what I’ve ever done to elicit such treatment, all I get in return is silence and a smirk. Not all, but a large majority are suddenly behaving this way. It seems they have harbored these feelings for our entire aquaintance.

      I repeat. Be aware. Be prepared.

    Wonder if our POTUS will comment on this one, or perhaps Professor Gates will share his wisdom.

  4. Curmudgeon says:

    Is this article from 2008? The date says August 11th, 2008, so it happened over a year ago, right?

  5. 12 Gauge Rage says:

    Thankfully nothing like this has happened here in the Lone Star State. But I’m not saying it isn’t possible. However, I’ve noticed that such incidents do occur where the state is stricter on limiting constitutional liberties, and have higher taxation. The underlying mood here is that everyone is armed and won’t put up with such non-sense. If these blacks are viewing Obama’s win as a form of payback against whites then they’ve learned nothing from Martin Luther King Jr. and will only re-enforce all the names and beliefs that white supremacists have said about them for so many years.

    Arm yourself, just to be safe.

    Not advocating anything because violence is rarely a solution. But if you do some self reflection, see if you are brave (or foolish) enough to walk through a black neighborhood in any American city, preferably after dark. These guys were marines and they got brutally beaten. They fought for the rights of the guys from “the hood” to be thugs. I’m tired of the political correctness. White folks are being victimized by blacks, and the media just ignores it. Why?

    • neocon mom says:

      Whites are victimized by blacks, blacks are victimized by blacks. I have to agree, and I know I heard the term “the soft bigotry of low expectations” applied to this situation before. The war on poverty is akin to all of the “aid” that goes to Africa. Charity (or government aid) without boundaries and limits is not charitable, it is a force that enables all the worst in a human being. The whole “teach a man to fish” philosophy is a far more difficult one to achieve.

      I think our tendency to dole out aid to Africa has to do with guilt over slavery. It becomes just another resource to fight over. I think our approach in Africa and in the so-called War on Poverty here in America has helped cultivate the worst of human nature in both places. I remain unconvinced that it has to do with the particular nature of black people. Government policy and political correctness have played a role in the cultural decay of all Americans and most particularly black Americans.

      I think that in small towns, particularly in the South, the culture is quite different from up north and in large urban areas. I think many Northerners would be shocked to see the mutual respect and goodwill between blacks and whites throughout much of the Southeast. And as a Christian living in a university town, I may have more in common with many churchgoing, God-fearing, family loving black members of my community than with the left-leaning, secular humanist whites.
