My Thoughts on Cell Phone Jammers

I saw a recent post in slashdot about some the increased popularity of illegal cell phone jammers in the USA. Apparently a few self-opinionated white morons (my pretty accurate guess) are now using them to silent undesirable loud cell-phone conversions in public places.

As many of you know, I do not judge an act by its legal status because laws are written (and enforced) by greedy and short-sighted parasites.

But I have issues with this form of vigilantism for reasons above and beyond the conventional ones. So let me first list the conventional reasons-

1. Since the jamming is indiscriminate you might accidentally cut off an important conversation.

2. It could affect 9/11 or other emergency calls and might be used to facilitate robbery.

3. There is no law (or custom) against being a loud cringe-inducing idiot in public.

4. Other people paid for cell phone access, whether you like it or not.

But all of these are, in my opinion, minor issues compared to the big one that few white (and asian) geeks are able to comprehend. Can you guess what I am talking about??

Payback with a significant racial component.

Ok.. if you have read the original article and the comments on it on slashdot- it is hard to deny that there is a significant racial (and class) component in the beliefs of those who use, or condone the use, of cell phone jammers. As many of you know, inter-racial relations in the USA between slavery, jim crow and the ‘war on drugs’ have never been particularly good. It goes without saying that a white, or an Asian person, trying to jam the cell-phones of a predominantly Black or Mexican crowd might cause or invite personal harm. Sooner or later a white (or Asian) geek is going to caught and lynched.

But that is not the real problem..

Once news of a few such events spreads over the intertubes- even a small cell-phone outage will make people suspicious of every white (or asian) within shooting distance.

Then there is the issue of Blacks and Mexicans in service jobs that involve taking care of pathetic old and dying white people. Don’t you think that they won’t “transfer” some of their extra contempt for whites by abusing the ones under their care? I don’t feel any sympathy for old and dying whites who get abused by non-white caretakers because what goes around, comes around.

What do you think? Comments?

    I would get a kick to try it just once around a bunch of sororistitutes.

    But seriously, what conversation could be more important than friendly conversation with the person right next to you? If the dude next to me was jamming everyone about to rob a bank, I think absorbing his body language and his emotional state would be more decisive than yapping away with my gf. Phones are good to alert 911 after the fact. But actually being there and in the moment is the only way to forsee what’s going on around you.

    I guess the real issue is placing social responsibility on other people while you yap away, oblivious.

    I just find it passive aggressive. If someone’s being an asshole, tell it to their face.

    This is my primary form of entertainment since shooting my television.

    Have you read some of my older posts on the systemic problems of contemporary society?

      Someone tried this in the town I grew up in. Asked a sister to get off her cell phone in a theater. She called her just out of jail boy friend who proceeded to stab this man with a meat thermometer. Left him in a coma for 6 months. If you’re going to ask minorities to stop being disruptive you better be armed and ready to fight.

    In the Netherlands, a mosque started to use phone jammers. Although it is evident that usually, racial angle is the other way around.

    As regards elderly whites, fight both overpopulation and population greying by euthanasia.

    If those old white people didn’t raise good kids to take care of them then they really have no excuse..

    Honestly though, they shouldn’t trust black/hispanic care takers.

    Itz coming!!!

    “Two care assistants were caught on camera beating and abusing frail dementia patients.
    Sonia Limbu, 26, and Pargarsh Kaur Sahota, 57, were secretly filmed by a colleague hitting, pushing and shouting at elderly residents.
    But yesterday they escaped jail after a judge denounced them as cruel – but decided that locking them up was not in the public interest.”
