In troubled Baltimore to date, we have seen: 144 cars/15 buildings burned, 235 rioters arrested and now clogging the local criminal processing system. Those are not the most informative data. We heard that the Baltimore rioters who burned and trashed, were bussed in from elsewhere and that they included many of the same folk who trashed Ferguson.
We heard that Baltimore’s Mayor ordered the police to provide space for rioters to destroy property, something she denied even after a recording of her statement was played on news shows. We heard of a Shopkeeper who called police 50 times, with no response.We heard of at least 9 journalists attacked; some robbed and beaten. The City Council Prez apologized to rioters. (For calling them thugs).
What is going on? In Florida, George Zimmerman was found to have been defending himself from a young black thug, Trayvon Martin. Michael Brown attacked the police officer who shot him. in Ferguson. We don’t know what happened in Baltimore, but that a black man died in police custody. The blacks who run the city are not releasing the details of that death. Yet all have been grounds for black riots provided by paid, imported hired guns as much or more than by locals. It appears less genuine citizen outrage and and more, political theater.
Some other things are notable, too. Elsewhere, a TV producer (a woman) was attacked and robbed by a pack of black Teens. In Charleston, a Teen gang of at least 15 mixed boys and girls attacked and robbed people on the street. New York City was told to expect spillover Baltimore riots. A Kafkaesque Orioles/White Sox baseball game took place in an empty stadium; Baltimore would not trust a gathered audience after the unrest. And reprising the Mayor and City Council President, Salon magazine said that the rioters were right; trashing police cars is legitimate political action. Some things are changing.
Back at the ranch, the U.S. military is practicing moving into and taking control of U.S. cities come June and the Department of Justice is proceeding with its program for Federalizing Police.
Assembling all of this into one provides some food for thought. We note that the only genuine beneficiaries of government largess lavished upon blacks to date, has been government, politicians particularly. Some blacks have done well; more have done less well. Nor is it a result of white racism; it is a result of government programs replacing black peoples’s willingness to do for themselves as whites have done. And most successfully, Asians too. It has naught to do with race; much to do with economics and attitudes. The same bill of goods is now on sale to homosexuals.
There appears at this point, little doubt that the black ‘riots’ are planned, funded and stage managed by the far Left. We have seen photos of the rows of bussess parked and awaiting the imported thugs to return them to their homes. The horde of Ferguson Department of Justice organizers has been reported. And the pattern is continuing. The similar “Occupy Wall Street using unemployed young whites, fizzled. The re-casting with blacks seems so far, more effective.
Next we will see whether the black fallback attempt to destabilize U.S. cities will succeed as “Occupy” failed. We suspect that the Left is again overreaching. The viral video of an outraged black mother chastising her son for joining the riots may be telling. We will see. One thing we can take for granted: the far Left will not give up its program and given human nature, it will always be there to push it.
Black Americans, Asian Americans, white Americans, male Americans and female Americans (and increasingly Latin American Americans) share one thing: They are all Americans. And in the ancient words: “United, we stand; divided, we fall.” It is a test that we have elected leaders who foment and suborn for division rather than reinforce unity.
