Feds Foil Black Marine’s Plot to Kill ‘Privileged’ White People

This story shines a light on the consequences of aggressive identity policies, racial rhetoric, and DEI policies imposed by the left.

In a disturbing case that speaks volumes about the deep-seated divisions in our society, Joshua Cobb, a Black man from New Jersey, has been charged with federal crimes for allegedly planning a mass murder targeting White individuals, whom he labeled all as privileged. Cobb’s online manifesto, penned in December 2022, outlined a chilling desire to inflict mayhem on White people reflecting a toxic blend of racial animosity and violent intent.

According to federal prosecutors, Cobb articulated a hatred so profound that it propelled him to plan an attack during a holiday he deemed significant to Whites, armed with an arsenal he was in the process of assembling. This scenario is not just a simple crime; it’s a stark representation of racial tensions that some are exploiting for nefarious ends. Cobb’s statements about targeting rich White people at locations like gyms or grocery stores reveal a disturbing fixation on class and race, a fixation that is becoming alarmingly common in public discourse.

Cobb’s military background adds another layer of complexity to this already volatile mix. After attending Marine Corps basic training in South Carolina, he was stationed at the Marine Corps Air-Ground Combat Center in Twentynine Palms, California. There, even amidst the discipline of military life, Cobb’s homicidal ideations persisted, culminating in his arrest in May 2024.

The Biden Admin Is Stoking the Flames of Division

His arrest brings to the forefront serious questions about how our military and federal institutions handle issues of racial hatred and mental health. The FBI‘s intervention, while timely, highlights a concerning narrative where personal grievances translate into racial violence, a narrative fueled by divisive rhetoric that has permeated even the highest levels of our government.

Under the Biden administration, the emphasis on race-based policies and initiatives like DEI has not only cost millions but has also intensified divisions. The military, traditionally a merit-based institution, has seen recruitment and morale suffer as it prioritizes identity politics over combat readiness.

Even more troubling is the Department of Veterans Affairs‘s approach, which, following a directive from Biden, has been pushing to declare more Black veterans as mentally disabled to qualify them for government checks—despite data showing that Black vets already receive such benefits at double the rate of their White counterparts.

This case is a grim reminder of the potential consequences of a society increasingly segmented by race and class, where the push for equity overshadows equality. As we ponder the implications of Cobb’s arrest and the factors that led him to such a dark place, it’s crucial to reflect on the impact of policies that prioritize division over unity, and the vital need to restore a sense of common purpose and fairness in our public institutions.
