Bobby J Blythe – New Video

Another new video has appeared on YouTube showing one of Bobby Joe Blythe’s lectures to three black belt students. In the 9:56 video, it shows Bobby Joe Blythe seated at a makeshift desk talking to three black belts in the same dojo where the infamous KFG (Kung Fu Guy) was brutally beaten.

Although the video is a little blurry and the guys are far from the camera it appears the man stood next to Bobby Joe Blythe is the same Willie J Dennis that beat KFG to a bleeding, wheezing pulp. However, it’s clear from the audio what rules Blythe operated his dojo under. He clearly outlines his expectations of his black belts and his rules of what happens in the dojo.

“If they come through that door, it’s open season.”

“I do what I want in my home. I do what I want in my place of business.”

“Now, if a person wises off to you … just hit him. No questions asked. Hit him. Don’t explain your actions. Hit him.”

“If any person touches you, in any way, he’s either a faggot or he’s stupid. Hit him.”

At the end of the video Blythe tirades about earrings, how they’re not allowed in his dojo and that if he ever catches anybody wearing one, that’s the day you will lose your black belt status. He even promises to beat you for it.

To all intents and purposes, this new video seems to be nothing more than a glimpse into the world of Bobby J Blythe and how not only he taught karate in his insane dojo (his words) but how he intended to maintain his dojo’s reputation. If you compare the misguided teachings in this video to that of a misguided Muslim leader at a Pakistani madras you can see how corrupting his words can be. He almost says that any black belt has earned the right to do what they want because they worked their butt off. I think this video further solidifies my own view that Blythe created Dennis, his warped idea of what was right and wrong, wound him up like a clockwork toy and pointed him at KFG.

KFG touched Dennis, his kicks and punches did connect. He also knocked Dennis to the floor. So what was Dennis expected to do? He couldn’t lose face. He couldn’t become a faggot and he certainly wasn’t stupid so he did what Blythe had trained him to do. He hit him. Repeatedly. Brutally. Until KFG was dead or dying.

Blythe incited hatred and incited violence against any inferior being, i.e. somebody that didn’t have a black belt, just as a madras preacher would against the infidel. As an ex-marine he would probably be aware of these psychological techniques though and would prey upon simpler minds but now he’s been caught. If Blythe had not kept these videos for his own trophy cabinet he’d probably be in the clear. His arrogance against the rest of the world and the simpletons that populate it are just cannon fodder to him. I’m sure to this day that he doesn’t see anything wrong in what he said, did or incited others to do.

UPDATE1: Associated Content has also written up a detailed account of the incident and video but seems to add little detail compared to other sources. However, I’m pleased the story is garnering more media attention.

UPDATE2: The Examiner has now published a story too.

UPDATE3: I don’t like that the story seems to be going cold and I think it’s because it’s not easy to see where we’re at and what’s going on. So is born.


Bobby J Blythe Encourages Black Belt Willie J Dennis to Beat A Man to Death – Literally

I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a disturbing video as the one that appeared on YouTube today. Reddit picked it up from 4Chan via this posting. It was then cross-posted on Digg.

I watched the video without any audio due to my surroundings and judging by the comments on Reddit it was the ‘best’ way of watching it. The video shows a black man duped into being beaten by a karate black belt student. It was apparently shot in December 1984 and it beings slowly with the victim showboating until the kicks and punches start to take effect. In particular, it looks like it’s a right elbow that first knocks him to the ground. At this point the victim tries to stop the fight repeatedly but all to no avail.

The dojo master then pushes the student to finish the fight and it ends badly with the guy on the floor and receiving too stomps to the head and neck. There is some stomach-sickening wheezing heard and a pool of blood quickly forms under the guys head who lies their motionless. He’s then dragged across the dojo floor and allegedly dumped in a dumpster in the back alley.

If ever something good is to come out of this it will be through the media picking up this story and forcing somebody to investigate. Did he really die? Who were in this video? It seems Bobby Joe Blythe and Willie J Dennis play the roles of master and student but where is the justice?

If it wasn’t for the student being black, they would say it was a lynching. Mindless brutality, caught on video, bragged about and traded like a Baseball card and everybody gets away with it. Somebody please tell me there is some goodness in the world. Where are the BBC and CNN when you need them?

UPDATE1: Somebody on Reddit reports that the matter has now been referred to Washington DC’s Cold Cases department for investigation. I wonder if an address for the crime scene can be found online, or the neighbouring NAPA store as it implies the employees closed early to watch the show. They would all now seem to be complicit in the murder of this young man – who wants to squeal first?

UPDATE2: It seems that Bullshido is collecting the most information and may have been the original source of this article.

UPDATE3: KMPH, Hanford’s local news, broadcast a story about the case. See this post.

UPDATE4: A new mini-site, Justice4KungFuGuy, has been created to catch the perpetrators.
