Ferguson Riots: The Death Rattle of a Great Nation in Moral Confusion
Michael Brown was a black thug, no better or worse than a white or Hispanic thug. As I reflect on this I think of a similar incident in Florida. If Michael Brown had a brother, he would look like Trayvon Martin. In both cases, non-thinking, bigoted Whites and Blacks jumped to the wrong conclusion. They praised the villains (Martin and Brown) and persecuted the victims (Zimmerman and Wilson). I will remind my readers that both Zimmerman and Wilson had blood running from their head wounds. They shot their respective assailants, whom they reasonably believed were trying to kill them, as any sane person would do.
Obama felt a need to jump into this affair as he did in the Martin case. Obama reproached the Ferguson cops saying, “There’s also no excuse for police to use excessive force against peaceful protests or to throw protesters in jail for lawfully exercising their First Amendment rights.” That is correct; but there is no reason to assume, and for sure no proof, that excessive force was used and there is never a right to rob, resist, rampage, and riot. Obama should call for an unbiased investigation.
The U.S. Attorney General, himself an outspoken black racist, is in Ferguson with a cadre of Department of Justice workers who are investigating the incident. No, they are laying a foundation for a predetermined verdict. Holder has not been reticent to speak out on the matter of race. He called America a “nation of cowards” on racial issues in 2009. Holder has sent a signal that he wants the “correct outcome.” Because of his and Obama’s missionary zeal to “get” the white guy, it sends a signal to irresponsible Blacks to “do their thing.”
Holder should do his duty for a change and investigate the Blacks who make a game of cold-cocking Whites. After all, that is a “hate” crime if any crime is.
The spineless governor, Jay Nixon, made an incredibly irresponsible and stupid statement when he declared, “a vigorous prosecution [of the shooting] must now be pursued” thereby absolving the thug and accusing the cop. What an idiot. I think he is a Democrat. Had he done his duty he would have demanded an unbiased, thorough investigation but fearful of a greater racial explosion, he took the cowardly way out.
The mother of Trayvon Martin, another black thug, has jumped into the fray with her two cents and it really wasn’t worth that. She tried to paint the two dead teens as victims of gun violence without admitting their complicity in crime. In a letter to Michael Brown’s parents she declared, “If they refuse to hear us, we will make them feel us.” Sounds like an ominous threat.
Trayvon’s mother along with Brown’s mother seems to have the same motivation–to get a pound of flesh and a pot of money when they deserved nothing but scorn for turning a tragedy of a son’s death and the destruction of an innocent man into a farce. Both families are an example of what a broken home and the absence of a strong father with biblical convictions can do.
Protesters have demanded justice for Brown, but they want justification for their own violence. To them all white cops are brutal beasts with a vendetta against all sweet, innocent, unarmed, college-bound blacks. Isn’t it strange that most of these black thugs who get themselves killed are always “innocent,” “a real nice guy,” “wonderful son,” etc.
If a cop commits a crime, then he should pay the price. Everyone agrees with that but too many Blacks and almost all liberals would not agree that Blacks must be held to the same degree of accountability as everyone else. Special racial treatment for anyone is a perfect definition of racism.
The media is not interested in justice, only a good, on-going story. Most of them are gutless wonders who are lazy, incompetent, or are committed zealots to social engineering. That includes race hustlers like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and the NAACP. Of course, the Black Panthers are thugs that should be behind bars. None of the above seem to be concerned with the twelve people who were shot and killed in Chicago over the Fourth of July weekend. But then that was black on black killings.
I suggest that the police announce that there will be no protesting except during daylight and all protestors who refuse to disperse on the first order will be arrested and jailed.
Moreover, I suggest that the NAACP and similar black groups stop pandering to the haters and spend time and money helping black families stay together, kids stay in school, promote a work mentality, and preach Bible morality to everyone. The answer to hating, robbing, looting, shooting, racism, and violence is Christ. When men trust Christ, there is a change in their morals, mores, manners, and motives. Many of the protesters seem to have problems with all of them.
We’ve come a long way baby–in the wrong direction. The noise of the protestors (cursing, fighting, and chanting) is the death rattle of a once-great nation marching into a dark night of racial wars.
Welcome to a new brave world where right is wrong; up is down; in is out; and bad is good and justice is demanded–if you are black.
