PBS’s Gwen Ifill: ‘There’s a
New Civil-Rights Movement’
Beginning in Ferguson

National Review Online, by Ryan Lovelace

Original Article

Posted By:SoCalGal, 8/25/2014 11:22:47 AM

On NBC’s Meet the Press, guest Gwen Ifill of PBS called the unrest and violence that erupted in Ferguson, Mo., the beginning of a “new civil-rights movement.” “There’s a new civil-rights movement which has sprung up,” Ifill said. “These young people in the streets, these young people who created a social-media movement around Michael Brown, they’re not saying pass a law, they’re saying enforce the current ones.” But some people have called for new laws, and later in the program, Reverend Al Sharpton said, “Our demonstrations must lead to legislation.” Sharpton went on to say that, “We must turn this moment into

The liberal Democrats and the black socialists could care less how many young blacks rob, loot, and shoot each other, the liberal Democrat and black socialist focus now is to manipulate the Michael Brown situation into some sort of a civil rights upraising to encourage black folks to vote for the Democrats in the November election.

The Gwen Ifills of the world don´t oppose racial bigotry and lynching. They just want to be the ones doing it. They don´t want justice, they want revenge.

Rioting and looting are their way of lashing out at Obama.

Black unrest is at record levels because Black families have been devastated by this President´s policies. Since they cannot lash out at a black president - they find another excuse to riot.

Most frightening is that the GOP will surely allow Ifilll to serve as a debate moderator in 2016. "Tell me, Mr. Repub, why do you and your fellow Republicans want to deny poor people food, housing and healthcare? And, why didn´t you condemn George W Bush for starting wars against followers of the Muslim faith? And as follow-up, why do you insist on controlling the bodies of American women?

Yes twit, lets examine the initial confrontation. We have young adults proudly walking down the middle of the road. We then have a police car drive by and tell the youths to get on the sidewalk, an order defiantly refused. Would the cops have done the same if it were 10 year old or a 60 year old of any race or sex? Yes, no civil rights violation.

Then after a radio call about a strong arm robbery there is a second interaction the results in a scuffle and a discharged weapon. Is it a civil rights violation to get out of your police car to talk to two youths about a robbery? No. Is it a civil rights violation to try to pull your gun when your suspect puts hands on you? No.

Then there is the final interaction with both Brown and Williams out of the car. Is it a violation of civil rights for the cop to say stop? No.

The questionable behavior is all owned by Brown. He defiantly refused to get on the sidewalk. When Williams brought his car alongside, he became confrontational. When the gun discharged, he ran, which is his only reasonable response of the evening. But then he changed his mind and became confrontational again. Why did he decide to try to bulldoze an already angry cop with gun already drawn?

Was this the combination of culture and drugs?

I believe there may be. Whites have had it up to their necks with all the P>C> and victimization agendas and simply may not take it any longer. The" new movement " will be Whites no longer catering to these agendas and no longer electing unqualified minority members simply out of feelings of guilt. Those who voted for the current President because they wanted to give a Black person a chance to show how capable he is have found out the hard way it wasn´t to be. He has let down EVERYONE, of all colors. My opinions.

I am pretty sure that there are already plenty of laws on the books saying that, if you physically attack a police officer, he has the right to defend himself with his gun if necessary.

What other legislation can possibly come out of this based on the actual facts of this situation?

I hope she gets the dates right on this one--I remember her tweeting a mocking message about Palin getting the date wrong on the Boston Tea Party (Palin was correct and Ifill was the one who was wrong)--Ifill never apologized or admitted she was wrong, she just deleted the tweet. But not before it was captured by news outlets. Sometimes technology is a good thing. Ha!!

There is still racism around, but most of us know in our hearts and show in our actions the truth that we are all one race, rich varying shades and tones of pale to dark brown, all beautiful and equal. My son knows when and if he marries, his wife will be very light or very dark, or somewhere in between. It does not matter. Our heritages and histories and values and faith are all unique and important but physical characteristics? It´s a no brainer. The Left enjoys dividing us up into classes and colors and putting the blame on everyone but themselves.

California is run from a sort of Pacific Versailles, an isolated coastal compound of elite rulers physically cut off from its interior peasantry.To understand how California works — or rather does not work — drive over the I-5 Grapevine and gaze down at the brilliantly engineered artificial Pyramid Lake. Thanks to California water project deliveries, even in a third year of drought its level still fluctuates between 90 to 100% full — ensuring, along with its companion reservoirs, plentiful water for the Los Angeles-area municipalities for the next two years.

The source said that Wilson had been “cooperative.” A spokesman for St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert P.

BEIJING: China’s industrial production growth slowed sharply to its lowest level for more than five years at 6.9% in August, intensifying concerns for the world’s second-largest economy. The key indicator measuring output at factories, workshops and mines, slumped from a 9% year-on-year expansion in July and was the worst since 5.7% in December 2008, during the global financial crisis. Retail sales, an indicator of consumer spending, rose 11.9% in the same month year-on-year, also down from 12.2% in July. Fixed asset investment, a measure of government spending on infrastructure, expanded 16.5% on-year in the first eight months of 2014. It was below the 17%

Representative Mark Sanford of South Carolina surprised the political world on Friday with his announcement that he was ending his engagement to the woman with whom he had an extramarital affair, the revelation of which stunted his rising-star career five years ago. But in interviews last spring, Mr. Sanford and his fiancée, Maria Belen Chapur, indicated that a relationship born in a stew of infidelity, 21st century politics and Twitter-enhanced cable-news sensationalism had, perhaps inevitably, sustained damage. Over the intervening months the relationship collapsed as the two argued over a wedding date, Ms. Chapur said in an interview on Saturday. Ms. Chapur

President Obama said the shooting death of a black teen by a white police officer last month in Ferguson, Missouri, exposed the racial divide in the American justice system that “stains the heart of black children.” Speaking at the annual Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner in Washington on Saturday night, Mr. Obama said the death of Michael Brown “awakened our nation” to a reality that black citizens already understood. “In too many communities around the country, a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement,” Mr. Obama said. “Too many young men of color feel targeted by law

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground
