The looters are criminals operating under the cover of a political cause, which is not unlike what kleptocrats are doing when they promote anti-Semitism throughout their states. There’s plunder in sight, dead ahead!
The facts of the matter:
“For more than three months, the grand jury — made up of seven men and five women, nine white and three black — heard evidence into the shooting. They met 25 times and heard from 60 witnesses, McCulloch said. They considered charges ranging from first-degree murder to involuntary manslaughter. In a criminal trial, jurors must decide a crime has been committed beyond a reasonable doubt. But here, those jurors needed only to feel there was probable cause that Wilson had committed a crime.”
At a 1930 Comintern conference in Moscow, a resolution was passed calling for the creation of a Soviet-controlled “Soviet Negro Republic” among America’s Southern states. That’s correct — the Soviet Comintern, working through American communists, crafted plans to create a segregated “separate Negro state” in the South. The Soviet goal was to foment an African-American uprising within the South, which, in turn, would join with a workers’ uprising in the North. When the revolution was deemed ripe, the two forces would seize and reconstitute America as a Soviet sister state.
As I write, the lead piece at People’s World, the flagship publication of CPUSA and the successor to the Soviet-funded and directed Daily Worker, is a promotion to rile up the American left for a Ferguson rally this weekend.
http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2014/10/communists_continue_to_agitate_on_ferguson.html – 10/9/2014: “What’s wrong is to see communists once again cynically exploiting prayer. These folks have always despised religion. And yet, they’ve also always exploited the religious.”
Hate is an American industry.
One hopes that it is a fringe industry and, in fact, driven by foreign agitation and domestic useful idiots. That makes it easier to more confidently (and rightly) wag the moralizing finger at a revanchist lawless Russian feudal estate pumping millions of dollars today into World Wide Web disinformation and local old line communist and poor-exploiting American agitprop.
However, a look up of the reflection that is The Occidental Observer may tell that the same appears to flourish as homegrown. Plainly, there is an extensive body of vicious xenophobic political thought left loose in America to promote ill will toward others on the basis of creed, race, or religion. Perhaps to the extent that either far left or right camps becomes active or growing, their reflections meet them in amplitude.
And yet, the Rev. Sharptons of the world flooded in, insisting, in effect, that Wilson was indeed guilty, and never mind the facts. (Even President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged resentment of the “injustice” perpetrated by a white police officer.)
These flame-throwers told folks to take the accusations against Wilson as fact and to protest until the day he was thrown in jail. Protest, you see, was essential — merely because a white cop had shot and killed a black teen. No other facts were needed.
But, because I have lately lapsed into a clinically confirmed paranoia, instantly I wanted to know if the parading demonstrators wanted to attack Jews.
So, I watched. Sure enough, along came a chubby and disagreeable-looking young man holding a hand-made placard that said, “Ferguson = Gaza = Wounded Knee,” which I took to be an endorsement of the goals proclaimed by Hamas, the renowned anti-civil rights organization. And I continued to watch. But the young man appeared to be alone.
How then can we strike a balance between on the one hand reacting viscerally to the images from Ferguson, which point to the long and constantly replenished history of police assaults on black bodies, and the images of Israel’s murderous rampage in Gaza, an assault continuous with Israel’s history of oppression and persecution of an entire people, while on the other hand resisting drawing too quickly an immediate, provocative, but inexact parallel?
The author delivers envenomed language in passing (” . . . Israel’s murderous rampage in Gaza . . . .”) with the confidence of a show trial’s jailer, judge, jury, and executioner.
We have so many dead black bodies in this country, Megyn, not because cops are shooting them, but because other black people are shooting them. And the left is selling a false narrative pretending that the opposite is true.
Update December 15, 2014
Another reprehensible outcome, which shocked even those of us accustomed to battling anti-Israel sentiment and anti-Semitism, was that many anti-Israel activists drew parallels between the situation in Ferguson and that in Gaza, and co-opted the tragedy, joining demonstrations to push their own agenda. Sadly, the opinion that it was all part of a shared struggle gained some traction and was also shared by an NFL player recently on social media. I don’t expect that I must explain that there are absolutely no parallels between the two scenarios: Israel is not on trial, and it is especially not being put in the dock by people who seek its very destruction. These events, which have now been reinforced with a second lack of indictment in the death of Eric Garner in New York, do expose the shameless hijacking of the tragedies and struggles of other people to demonize Israel by so-called pro-Palestinian groups.
