The Right’s Jewish Problem

The perplexing David Cole writes: South Park loves taking shots at Hollywood leftists, and never was that done with more skill than in the episode “Smug Alert,” in which liberal self-satisfaction, personified by George Clooney and his 2006 Oscar acceptance speech, forms a giant cloud of “Smug,” a deadly combination of smog and smugness, that threatens to blanket the entire West Coast.

Well, noxious “Smug” is hardly unique to left-wing celebrities. In fact, if you happen to live in the North Hollywood/Burbank section of L.A., I’d recommend not venturing outside without a gas mask on the evening of Saturday, Aug. 29, because a stage 1 Smug alert has been issued, courtesy of Hollywood conservatives. Now, I’ll say this up front—my column this week is colored by my own experiences and motivated by personal anger. No need to call me out on that; I’m copping to it willingly. But I do hope to make a larger point, beyond my own specific beefs.

This Saturday night at the Hilton Universal City Hotel, Friends of Abe, the “underground” group of Hollywood Republicans, is honoring author and columnist Mark Steyn at its annual summer bash (with an opening act by 1990s country has-been Deana Carter, because apparently Lee Greenwood has wash to do that night). I’m certain that Mark Steyn needs no introduction to most Taki’s readers. He’s the brash Canadian expat who’s not too keen on Muslims and Mexicans but quite supportive of white women “breeding” in great numbers. A skilled writer, Steyn gets away with saying a lot of things that would get a lesser intellect in trouble. And having been hardened by skirmishes with Canada’s draconian “human rights” commissions and tribunals, he’s completely unafraid of censors. And good for him. I probably agree with him about 85% of the time, and 100% in any fight that involves opposing censorship, governmental or otherwise.

But the ominous Smug cloud of which I warn will come not from him, but rather from the Hollywood conservatives and local GOP functionaries who will be honoring him. I can assure you that the echo chamber of this closed-door event will be throbbing with the deafening cacophony of back-patting and arrogant, self-satisfied, “aren’t we brave?” rhetoric from the assembled members and VIPs. A month after hosting Donald Trump, Friends of Abe is honoring a man whose rhetoric might be too rich for even The Donald. “America has more Mexicans than anybody needs, and then some” is a recent Steyn bon mot. “Why do immigrants rape out of all proportion to their numbers?” is another. Oh, and it should be pointed out that, according to the Ontario Human Rights Committee, Steyn’s fans (no, not Steyn himself, but people who applaud his work) “called for the mass killing, deportation or conversion of Muslim Canadians.”

What bravery the Hollywood conservatives and L.A. GOP will be displaying in honoring Steyn! What a stand they shall be taking against political correctness! Against “minority” pressure groups! Against censorship! And against holding an author responsible for the ravings of strangers who consider themselves fans.

The Trump Deportation Plan

If such a plan works for Israel, why not such a plan for America?

I support Israel. I support every country defending its borders against invaders. I support every people determining their own destiny without interference by outsiders.

As an Orthodox Jew, I don’t want outsiders messing with my community and religion. I want strong borders. I want conversion to Orthodox Judaism to be difficult.

Greg Johnson writes: The most important political issue in America today is immigration, for unless we stop non-white immigration, the United States will cease to exist. People are not equal and interchangeable. The United States was created by whites, and as whites are replaced, the US will become just another dirty, impoverished, chaotic, Spanish-speaking non-white state. But don’t we have enough of those in the Western Hemisphere already?

I emphasize that immigration is a political issue, because unlike so many other problems, it is actually possible to fix it within the current political system. Our rulers, of course, have tried to make open borders, multiculturalism, and amnesty for invaders into an unchallengeable political consensus. The public wants immigration restrictions, but the establishment was simply not going to deliver. The only question the establishment was willing to consider is how, and how fast, America is to be obliterated by non-white immigration.

Then, as a demonstration of the power of individual personalities to change public debates — and thus change history — Ann Coulter and Donald Trump have put halting immigration, starting deportation, and saving America back on the table. The results were predictable: enthusiasm from the public — and a great deal of squirming, wailing, kvetching, and gnashing of teeth from the political establishment.

The establishment is committed to destroying America, and they will say and do anything to bring that about. Thus, in addition to telling us that saving America is simply immoral, they are also telling us that it is not practical. It is just too expensive. Thus the media are reporting claims that deporting 11 million illegal aliens would cost $100 to $200 billion. And since there are probably closer to 22 million illegals here, those costs would have to be doubled.

Here’s how to answer these claims.

Don’t quibble about the numbers or methods or agendas of these studies, because you will lose 99% of your audience immediately. Instead, attack two implicit premises: (1) that this is just “too much money,” and (2) that deportation would have to be carried out by the government to begin with.
Deportation might cost $200 billion. But doing nothing will cost us our country. Isn’t America worth $200 billion to save?
If saving America is not worth $200 billion, then why are we spending three times that amount on national defense in 2015 alone?
If 20 million foreign soldiers were to cross our borders, and our political class said that it is just too expensive to repulse them — so maybe we should offer them jobs, welfare, amnesty, and citizenship instead — we would conclude that our leaders are traitors and should be replaced. Well, illegal immigration is just invasion, colonization, and ethnic cleansing in slow motion. Which means that Americans are only slowly concluding that our leaders are traitors and should be replaced. But once they arrive at that conclusion, the traitors’ days are numbered.
According to one estimate, illegal immigration costs the US government more than $100 billion/year. So even if it cost $200 billion one time to send them all back, the program would pay for itself in 2 years.
The government will admit to 5.5% unemployment, just like they will admit to 11 million illegal aliens. In truth, both numbers are much higher. Deporting 20+ million illegal aliens will fix unemployment in two ways. First, it will open up jobs for unemployed America workers. Second, if it really did cost $200 billion, that money will be spent employing Americans. What’s wrong with that? Liberals and conservatives both wax nostalgic about FDR’s great public works projects in the 1930s. Let’s put Americans back to work.
The idea that America simply can’t save itself is an insult to the American people. If Americans could put a man on the moon, then we can secure our borders. Of course, some of the same people who are pooh-poohing the very possibility of saving America believe that they can bring liberal democracy to the Muslim world. It is time to simply stop listening to these people.
The establishment wants us to believe that immigration is simply a force of nature, and that it only goes one way. Both premises are false. Immigration exists because of political policies, which can be changed. And if it is possible for people to come here, then it is possible for them to leave. Roads lead into Mexico, as well as out of it. People can drive, walk, and swim South, as well as North. Planes fly to Africa and Asia as well as from them.
Not only is it possible for immigrants to leave, it is possible for them to leave the same way that they came. Most immigrants were not brought here by the US government. Therefore, most immigrants do not need to be sent back by the government.

Racism Is Turning Down A Black Guy For Sex

Comments to Steve Sailer:

* I bet that dead Black Homo Bryce Williams definition of “racism” was White guys turning down his sexual advances.

Here is an article about so-called “racism” in the LGBT community. What passes for “racism” in that community is a White Homo saying no to being asked out on a date by a Black Homo.

* I am looking at the most “liked” NY Times comments (which BTW, often run in surprisingly non-PC directions on issues such as immigration) and they are uniformly talking about “guns” with no mention of the racial dimension whatsoever. Imagine the outcry if a white guy had killed a popular black news anchor after claiming racial grievances against blacks.

* The media does not hold Black Lives Matter to the same high moral standards as people who own a Confederate flag. Black Lives Matter should have been finished as an organization after a Black thug in Memphis named Tremaine Wilbourn murdered a White police officer.

If everyone who owns a Confederate flag is morally responsible for the Charleston church shooting, that Black Lives Matter is morally responsible every time a police officer is killed by a Black thug while in the line of duty.

Speaking of Memphis, if Elvis Presley was still alive today I wonder what he would think about the 3rd world ghettozation of a city he once called home. Would he have White flighted out of there?

The shooter’s manifesto says that he acted specifically in revenge for the black church shootings but the news reports don’t seem to be picking up on this at all.

* My favorite complaint about requiring people to have ID is the gripe that retired people and unemployed people don’t have time to get one.

It’s not just the bitching about them somehow not having time, despite not having a job – it’s the fact that they are often receiving thousands of dollars, or even tens of thousands, in food stamps, Medicare, Medicaid, cash assistance, ad infinitum.

* Unemployed welfare people in the inner city can not afford to go to the local DMV to get a state issued ID, because they do not have the $2 dollars it takes to get on a public bus that will drop them off there, sarcasm.


* I’d be kind of curious to know if there are any plans for Hollywood to do a film about Elliot Rogers and The Day of Retribution. If the dysfunction of Compton is worth a film surely the dysfunction of of a boy growing up around the film industry is worth a look and the producer has a ‘free script’ to dramatize. I know it would be cutting close to the bone but, to me, Rogers is an infinitely more interesting subject than common as dirt hoodrats.

* Even when I was young and unenlightened about the true nature of blacks’ relationship to the police I recall listening to those first records and thinking it was somewhat ironic the lyrical content was divided between two thirds boasting of criminal violence and another third complaining of police harassment. I realize now that’s unfair; they weren’t hypocrites at all, just liars, and the criminal exploits were pure bs. Their real complaint was they were getting harassed on the streets just like the thugs, despite being mostly harmless. But you weren’t going to sell records with that.
It’s ironic also that the real “criminal” in the bunch, E, publicly supported one of the cops charged in the Rodney King fiasco because he thought he was being treated unfairly (Briseno, I think it was). Of course the others (the phony gangsters), already beefing with him by then, seized on that. I think I’ll spill one for Easy right now.

How To Deal With The Grievance Industry

Comments to Steve Sailer:

* The best thing about Trump’s rise is that he serves as a model for how to deal with the Perpetual Grievance Society: every time they act as if Trump has said something so outrageous he can’t possibly survive, and he better kneel and apologize if he ever wants to be allowed back in this town again, he just thumbs his nose at them, and watches his poll numbers rise.

This presents a really very dangerous prospect for the SJWs–and they are all SJWs. Suppose people catch on that brazening it out after flouting political correctness is the path to popularity and respectability among the masses. What then? Especially, what if other politicians and other public figures see how this works?

What’s left of the career opportunities for an SJW if that’s what Trump proves?

* As I make my way through The Art of the Deal, I see plenty of hints that Trump kinda knows the time of day about blacks. Not just because of how he got out of his father’s particular kind of real estate business because of the Federal lawsuit hassles. But he also has a chapter on his very first real estate deal out of college, in Cincinnati. He took over an apartment complex full of just about the worst white people imaginable, people from the Kentucky mountains. He gradually got them out, had them renovated, and got a better more working and middle class variety of white people into the complex. Then one day, one of his tenants approached him when he came to Cincinnati to check up on things, and out of the blue, advised him to sell, because the black undertow (not said in those words) was encroaching. And that it did.

White Lives Matter





From 2009:



REPORT: LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (CBS/AP) Curtis Lavelle Vance, the man accused of killing beautiful Arkansas television anchorwoman Anne Pressly, told police he beat her with a wood-handled garden tool after she awoke and found him committing a sex act beside her bed, a detective testified Tuesday.

Vance described how he hit the KATV personality as many as five times, shattering her left arm as she held it up to shield her face, Little Rock police Detective Tommy Hudson said. Hudson’s testimony came as Pulaski County Circuit Judge Chris Piazza weighs whether to throw out Vance’s often convoluted statements to police, and DNA evidence, before the trial set for Nov. 2.

Vance, 28, of Marianna, has pleaded not guilty to charges of capital murder, rape, residential burglary and theft over the Oct. 20 attack on Pressly at her home near the Little Rock Country Club. Pressly, 26, died five days later, having never regained consciousness.

Pressly graduated from Rhodes College in Memphis, Tenn., and worked for WBBJ-TV in Jackson, Tenn., in 2006.

Vance could face lethal injection if convicted of the slaying, as Piazza rejected defense lawyers’ claims Tuesday that the death penalty overwhelmingly targets blacks convicted of violent crime against whites.

The team of public defenders representing Vance claim police improperly obtained the statements from him, as well as pressured him into offering saliva swabs for DNA testing. Vance himself has claimed police shoved a gun in his face at one point to get him to confess.

Detective J.C. White testified that Vance went willingly to the Marianna police station Nov. 25, 2008, as authorities looked into possible connections between the Pressly attack and an unsolved rape in Vance’s hometown, about 90 miles east of Little Rock.

White also testified that laboratory testing found that a hair found in Pressly’s home matched Vance’s DNA. Last November, police said it also matched a sample from a rape in Marianna. Officers focused on Vance after he was reported being in an area that had seen several burglaries.

A tape-recorded police interview played in court had Vance sounding friendly and cooperating with detectives when they first interviewed him. A detective also testified that Vance used the swab to provide the saliva that prosecutors say ties him to the slaying.

“Y’all showed me the utmost respect,” Vance said at the end of that interview.

Police arrested Vance on Nov. 26 and detectives conducted another interview with him that night. Vance refused to have the interview recorded, but Hudson testified that the man offered three different versions of what happened the night of the attack on Pressly. Each version put him in the Heights neighborhood, looking to steal laptop computers, the detective said.

Hudson said Vance’s final version put him inside Pressly’s house, beating her with a garden tool he stole from a backyard shed. Vance later said he threw the tool out of his car when driving over the Arkansas River. When detectives questioned him about Pressly’s rape, Vance requested a lawyer and ended the interview.

New Yorker On Donald Trump

Jared Taylor writes:

The New Yorker has just published a 7,500-word article about Donald Trump, except it’s not really about Donald Trump. Two thirds of it is about Mr. Trump’s supporters–including me–and that’s what explains the title: “The Fearful and the Frustrated” [August 31, 015]. New Yorker readers can feel smug without even reading the article; Mr. Trump appeals to losers, just as they have always thought.

The author Evan Osnos, [Email him] is a veteran journalist and has been with the New Yorker for seven years. After weeks of following Mr. Trump around and talking to his fans, he announces that Mr. Trump is “expanding the discourse of hate,” that his core supporters are “the portion of the electorate that is drifting deeper into unreality,” that he could unleash “anti-democratic politics,” and that he appeals directly to “the crude tribalism that Richard Hofstadter named ‘the paranoid style’.”

What a monster! New Yorker readers can feel delightfully superior not only to Mr. Trump but to the unhinged primitives who might actually vote for him–that is to say, the 55 percent of white men who say that would back him over Hillary Clinton.

The article is a perfect example of blinkered, self-congratulatory journalism. It makes no effort actually to understand anything. Mr. Osnos does quote one or two key ideas of Mr. Trump’s supporters but he pees on them from a very great height rather than try to refute them.

In June, when Mr. Osnos first asked to interview me he wrote to say that he was working on “a piece about race, in the wake of the Charleston event.” I thought this was an important subject so I invited him to my house. We spoke for two hours about Dylann Roof and what might have motivated him: race differences, immigration, and what demographic change means for America. Mr. Osnos assured me that he was “trying very hard to understand” dissident thinking, so I arranged for him come back to my house and meet several other racial dissidents.

At some point, though, like everyone else, Mr. Osnos appears to have been dazzled by the Trump juggernaut. He dropped his original angle, and focused instead on discrediting Mr. Trump by digging up the most hair-raising and off-beat supporters he could find. He now claims to have found the one Trump supporter who reportedly watched the Republican debate while sipping coffee from a cup with a swastika on it.

As part of this project, Mr. Osnos trotted out the Daily Stormer, Stormfront, the League of the South, National Policy Institute, VDARE.COM, the Traditional Youth Network, and American Renaissance, apparently to thrill his fellow liberals with the news that people associated with what the SPLC calls “hate groups” are paying attention to Donald Trump. When Mr. Osnos wrote that the Federation for American Immigration Reform has called Mr. Trump’s immigration plan the “American Workers’ Bill of Rights,” he was careful to add that FAIR, too, “is classified as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.” This is what passes for journalism these days, but is as meaningless as digging up the seven remaining American Stalinists and recording their praise for Bernie Sanders.

Despite his hours and hours of conversations with racially conscious whites, Mr. Osnos avoided conveying almost any of their central arguments, but he let one slip through.

He quoted Richard Spencer of the National Policy Institute on the “unconscious vision that white people have–that their grandchildren might be a hated minority in their own country.”

He quoted Hunter Wallace of the League of the South pointing out that the reaction of Southerners to the removal of the Confederate battle flag justifies “fears that people have about what happens when we become a minority.”

He quoted me asking, “Why are whites supposed to be happy about being reduced to a minority?”

There’s a pattern here. At least some people who take an interest in Mr. Trump don’t want whites to become a minority. President Trump would slow that process. But the questions of what a non-white America will be like and why anyone might not want that don’t get one word from Mr. Osnos. Apparently it is “hate” merely to ask. But simply to brush the matter aside is not the work of someone who is “trying very hard to understand” anything.

Only once did Mr. Osnos actually try to examine a Trump-related grievance. He quoted Matthew Heimbach of the Traditional Youth Network as saying, “[W]e are going to be the first generation in American history to be living worse than our parents.” Mr. Osnos notes that Mr. Heimbach lives in Cincinnati, works as a landscaper, and rents part of a house. He concedes that with “the decline of manual labor . . . nobody has been hit harder than low-skilled, poorly educated men.”

In other words: “It’s just as you thought, dear New Yorker reader. The people who like Trump are the yokels in fly-over country.” Mr. Osnos went to Harvard, drives a late model Mercedes, and works in Washington, DC.

But even more surprising is Mr. Osnos’s factual sleight of hand. He quotes what Mr. Trump said about Mexican criminals when he announced his candidacy and then sniffs that “the crime rate among first-generation immigrants is lower than that for native-born Americans–but Trump takes an expansive view of reality.”

First of all, a country should be able to choose its immigrants, and letting in even one criminal is a failure. Second, although our government makes it very hard to find out true rates of immigrant crime, the Center for Immigration Studies estimates the following incarceration rates per 1,000 for men aged 18 to 40:

  • Whites: 16
  • Non-black US-born Americans: 20
  • Mexican immigrants: 23
  • All US-born Americans: 31
  • US-born Mexicans: 38

Straight Talk about Immigrant Crime, By Steven A. Camarota, July 23, 2015

The same rate for blacks, who are 12.2 % percent of American natives: 93 per 1,000. (Calculated from the Public Use Files of the American Community Survey.)

So, if Mexican immigrants do commit crimes at a lower rate than natives, it is only because the native rate is swollen by blacks and US-born Mexicans! The children of those immigrants will raise the crime rate.

After sneering about “Trump’s phantasmagorical visions of marauding immigrants,” Mr. Osnos moves right on to other “hoaxes and theories that were once confined to the margins have been laundered through mainstream media outlets.” His prize example? The knockout game. He quotes a study that–he says–“searched for a single actual case of the knockout game and found none.”

In fact, the study says there are even videos of “groups of black men casually walking down the street and sucker-punching a white passerby, without a word and for no apparent reason,” but insists there has been “no measurable increase in these types of attacks.” [The ‘Knockout Game’: Moral Panic and the Politics of White Victimhood, By Mike King [Email him] Race Class April-June 2015 v]. Here is just one of the many YouTube videos about the game.

The knockout game–otherwise known as “polar bear hunting” because of the usual race of the victim–has been well established at least since 2009, but Mr. Osnos has kept himself resolutely ignorant.

This sort of thing makes a mockery of the New Yorker’s vaunted fact checking. A nice lady from the magazine called and wanted to know if I had said the things Mr. Osnos quoted me as saying when he interviewed me and five other people. Indeed, I had. But Mr. Osnos ominously concluded his account of the conversation with: “They uniformly predicted a violent future.” I never made such a prediction, and I don’t remember anyone else doing so, and the nice lady never asked about that. But Mr. Osnos can’t resist peddling a dark vision of white men hoarding guns and ammo.

He tells us Mr. Trump has “unleashed an old gene in American politics” that leads “to the anti-democratic politics of absolutism.” What?! Not a single one of the “haters” to whom Mr. Osnos spoke said one word that could be construed as “anti-democratic.” What is the leap of hysteria by which people like Mr. Osnos conclude that people with whom they disagree are anti-democratic?

Mr. Osnos ends the article with the claim that Mr. Trump’s core supporters are “the portion of the electorate that is drifting deeper into unreality, with no reconciliation in sight.”

If there is no reconciliation in sight it is because of the heroic blindness of people like Mr. Osnos, who do not even try to look past clichés about “hate,” “crude tribalism,” “fear and frustration,” and “the paranoid style.”

Soviet psychiatrists decided free-markets advocates were insane and locked them up in mental hospitals, so the New Yorker is heir to a proud tradition.

Donald Trump Is No Bitch

Comments to Steve Sailer:

* CNN’s comment at the end of the video clip: “Ramos refused to back down.” Bold, strong Ramos.

Most people would have said, “Ramos refused to shut up and wait his turn, but backed down when Donald’s security men confronted him.” Loud-mouthed, self-important and weak-kneed.

Trump had a much better sense of the visuals than the TV star, Ramos.

* Tony Rock who is Chris Rock’s brother, referred to Donald Trump as a gangsta on Red Eye. In the African American community it is considered a compliment to be referred to as a gangsta. It means you are the opposite of a bitch.

* Chris Rock’s latest movie “Take Five” wasn’t as good as I’d hoped it would be, but it was pretty iSteveish.

* This is why the Republican beltway consultant class of barnacles and parasites have it out for Trump most of all and have just about the biggest incentive to make sure he doesn’t win. For if he winds up being the Republican nominee, and does even just a wee tiny bit better among both blacks and Hispanics versus the Democrat nominee than Romney did versus Obama among them, then that ruins a whole lot of conventional wisdom and makes the consultants look like the deceitful frauds peddling political pseudo-science on behalf of donors that I already knew they are. Even if Trump does no better or even worse among NAMs, but wins the election based on more white voters, that ruins the beltway consultant narratives as well.

Chaim Amalek writes: “Also gay. Gay and black and gunning for whites. Not the narrative the MSM likes to have to cover (the victims were reporters, so they can’t ignore this):”

A man claiming to be Bryce Williams called ABC News over the last few weeks, saying he wanted to pitch a story, and wanted to fax information. He never told ABC News what the story was.

This morning, a fax was in the machine (time stamped 8:26 a.m.) almost two hours after the shooting. A little after 10 a.m., he called again, and introduced himself as Bryce, but also said his legal name was Vester Lee Flanagan, and that he shot two people this morning. While on the phone, he said authorities are “after me,” and “all over the place.” He hung up. ABC News contacted the authorities immediately and provided them with the fax.

In the 23-page document faxed to ABC News, the writer says “MY NAME IS BRYCE WILLIAMS” and his legal name is Vester Lee Flanagan II.” He writes what triggered today’s carnage was his reaction to the racism of the Charleston church shooting:

“Why did I do it? I put down a deposit for a gun on 6/19/15. The Church shooting in Charleston happened on 6/17/15…”

“What sent me over the top was the church shooting. And my hollow point bullets have the victims’ initials on them.”

Ex-Employee Caught in Connection to On-Air Shooting
Alison Parker and Adam Ward, Slain Virginia Reporter and Cameraman, ‘Did Great Work Every Day’
What We Know About Suspect Vester Lee Flanagan in Virginia On-Air Shooting
It is unclear whose initials he is referring to. He continues, “As for Dylann Roof? You (deleted)! You want a race war (deleted)? BRING IT THEN YOU WHITE …(deleted)!!!” He said Jehovah spoke to him, telling him to act.

Later in the manifesto, the writer quotes the Virginia Tech mass killer, Seung Hui Cho, calls him “his boy,” and expresses admiration for the Columbine High School killers. “Also, I was influenced by Seung–Hui Cho. That’s my boy right there. He got NEARLY double the amount that Eric Harris and Dylann Klebold got…just sayin.'”

In an often rambling letter to the authorities, and family and friends, he writes of a long list of grievances. In one part of the document, Williams calls it a “Suicide Note for Friends and Family.”

He says has suffered racial discrimination, sexual harassment and bullying at work
He says he has been attacked by black men and white females
He talks about how he was attacked for being a gay, black man
“Yes, it will sound like I am angry…I am. And I have every right to be. But when I leave this Earth, the only emotion I want to feel is peace….”

“The church shooting was the tipping point…but my anger has been building steadily…I’ve been a human powder keg for a while…just waiting to go BOOM!!!!”

Link to shooter video.

REPORT: A gunman killed a reporter and cameraman while they were doing a live TV news report in Franklin County, Virginia, Wednesday morning.

CBS News reports that the suspect is being identified by police as Vester Flanagan, who was also known by the name Bryce Williams when he was a reporter at the station, WDBJ-TV.

A first-person video of the shooting was posted on a Twitter account labeled @bryce_williams7 that has since been suspended.

Alison Parker, 24, and videographer Adam Ward, 27, were killed.

A work-related rant was posted on the Twitter account before the video:

Screen Shot 2015-08-26 at 11.24.06 AM

The incident took place at Bridgewater Plaza in Franklin County. Parker was interviewing Vicki Gardner, head of the Smith Mountain Lake Regional Chamber of Commerce, when gunshots begin to ring out. Parker and Gardner are seen running away while the camera, held by Ward, appears to be dropped.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has joined the manhunt, along with local authorities.

“We heard screaming and then we heard nothing,” Jeff Marks, the station’s general manager, said during the WDBJ broadcast.

The Roanoke Times reports that Gardner was shot in the back and is in surgery.

A still image of the suspect was taken from video that was recorded by a WDBJ camera:

Parker was in a relationship with station anchor Chris Hurst, while Ward was engaged to one of the station’s producers.
