Ferguson Fizzles
National Review Online, by Charles C.W. Cooke

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 8/30/2014 5:14:41 AM

During the Great Depression, the Communist scribes at the Daily Worker were forever assuring the more skeptical among their colleagues that the heroic spark was near. Having read about a “small riot somewhere in rural Minnesota,” Whittaker Chambers recorded in Witness, Robert Minor started shouting about “the beginning of the American revolution.” If the paper wished to capitalize upon dissatisfaction and spin it into insurrection and change, Minor proposed, it would need the staff to keep an eye out for the tell-tale sign and, then, to “play it up big.” Over the past month, the events in Ferguson, Mo., have played

How about that August is a slow news month and the media thinks they have to report something. Just review past August´s.

I´m sure the media could think up lots of stories for a slow news month such as----How many times Obama has praised the American People rather than beat them down. How many tees he´s broken on the golf course this month. How many times he´s lied this month. Does he really wear "mom jeans" Etc.

It´s hard to keep the media narrative going when decent citizens can see for themselves that there is no real outrage, but only a bunch of gimmedats looking to get more free stuff and destroying their own neighborhoods. The narrative goes further south when those who burned down the businesses start complaining about not having anywhere nearby to shop and demand that tax payers rebuild for them, "or else". And then there´s the truth trickling out about the Gentle Giant, the latest of which is a possible arrest for a gang related second degree murder.

So the real lesson of Ferguson should be to point out and highlight the glaring pattern of exploitation on the part of this administration. When you see the lengths they will go to insert themselves and direct their lap-dog, ring-kissing, knee-pad, talking-points-obedient media to promote the BIG LIE in this situation and others it should put to bed any doubts there may have been with Trayvon Martin! In both cases they tried to make them out as little boy saints. I have no doubt that this is the politics of division at work here on the part of communist radicals who will stop at nothing to foment controversy, unrest and violence to divide and conquer in their continuing effort to weaken the United States both internally and externally any way they can. Pay no attention to what they say, look at what they do. We first saw it with Henry Louis Gates Jr. screaming “Racism” at the top of his lungs for a 100% fabricated incident that was so obvious it was laughable. The next chapter in this particular horrible nightmare will be their attempt to destroy Darrin´s marriage, finances, reputation and life in general to reinforce their BIG LIE, simply because someone who did his job and defended himself just happened to be White. At the end of the day all about racism, even if they have to fabricate it any way possible! And with that I have no doubt that the Carney s still have their communist worker posters hanging in their kitchen...

Sadly, I must admit I´m deeply disappointed that civilization is returning to Ferguson. I was so sure that the White mobs were just being polite and allowing the Blacks to go first.

I was certain the citizens "just knew" that Officer Derrron Wilson has been or was going to be "railroaded" into charges of hunting down and wantonly killing that "gentle giant" of a teenager who was just getting some cigars to take to his poor infirm grandmother.

I was waiting for these aggrieved persons to take to the streets and burn down the local news paper, the local TV station, and then loot the local Walmart of all the school supplies their children were entitled to before starting back to class to learn more about how the Black people had been exploited ever since slavery.

Apparently when the Blacks ran out of gas (pun intended) and the MSM packed up and left, the followers of Officer Wilson decided it was a bad idea. Since their were no cameras to spread their discontent beyond the city limits they stayed home. /tic /sarc

The denouement is always the same - - -

• Young, invincible thug makes the mistake of picking on a guy who has a gun.

• Young, invincible thug winds up dead in the street.

• Leftist media and "community organizers" concoct hagiography of young thug.

• Facts emerge which reveal what he was - - just another young thug.

• Narrative is swept down the memory hole.

But - - you won´t have to hold your breath very long - - the same old same-old will pretty soon be happening again.

megan Kelly last night did a review of the case, and in an otherwise good job, dropped the ball when she interviewed Dr. Baden, who did the second autopsy on Michael the archangel.
When Baden and his non M.D. assistant held the press conference, Baden let the assistant do most of the talking. And the assistant held open the possibility that the shot to the head came from behind. Baden last night made it clear that the shot came from the front, but the scummy lawyers at the press conference immediately said that the shot came from behind. ANd Baden and his assistant did not correct that statement..

The race baiters are always willing to travel to any destination to gin up unrest. They are ever present to stir the pot but do not want to address the real problems in the black community. On the other hand, where are the black leaders who understand the problems and are willing to go into those communities and speak truthfully to these young people. They could be of great influence if they would make it a priority to come together with other successful black leaders and make a real effort to change lives. They know the way out of the ghetto life and it would be effective.

Of course it fizzled, there was actually a video of a 300 pound criminal stealing from a store and abusing an employee who was trying to stop him.

Then a policeman shot this this 300 pound fool when he charged him and who wouldn´t stop after repeated warnings.

Then all the race hustlers came to town and tried to get the population to riot. Nice touch, except the race hustlers are boring, irritating and you can´t understand a word they say. This is Obamas America.

After the MSM presented inflammatory coverage night after night, as mobs demanded the lynching of the Police Officer, and all the so called Civil Rights Grievance committee members (Sharpton, Jackson, Ogaltree and the NAACP) proved they do not believe in the Rule of Law and that a suspect (?) is innocent until proven innocent.

Now the poll comes out and Americans are not buying the Gentle Mike story.

The story fizzles because the White House was not getting the polling they wanted, it was hurting them.

The White House kept this going as long as it could, hoping it would spread to other cities like it did in the late 60´s. When that didn´t happen, it needed to be shut down because the American public is disgusted by the behavior of its fellow minority citizens.

In WH speak, it was bad optics.

I guess all of us racist racists are too doggone racist to grasp the fact that Saint Bigmike´s promising career was cut short by a racist police officer´s racist bullets.

That Saint Bigmike´s career was one of undisguised, brazen, violent, predatory crime matters not at all to us racist racists.

If we racist racists were only less racist, perhaps we racist racists would understand that, underneath all of the beatings, stealing, intimidation and violence perpetrated by Saint Bigmike and Saint Trayvon lay the purity, goodness and godliness of Saint Bigmike and Saint Trayvon.

Shame on us racist racists.

Honestly? I think there has to be video out there of the whole thing. Everything gets videotaped these days and I think there´s proof of everything the police said happened.

Now that doesn´t mean whoever took it (like that girl who said she started recording after Brown was lying in the street ... right) didn´t erase parts of it in order to keep the narrative safe. But Ferguson was a loser for the administration in all kinds of optics, so it´s not surprising they´re throwing other things at the wall to distract once again.

Until then, these despicable people enjoy death and destruction, mayhem and degradation. They DO NOT care about their people, despite their demagogueries and rioting.

Have heard the main stream media intone several times that everything calmed down in Ferguson when Eric Holder made a pit stop there. Seems to me that everything calmed down in Ferguson when the video of the store robbery was released and when we heard about the police officer´s damaged eye socket.

It was Holder´s DOJ that refused to release the store video earlier -- when it might have prevented the riots altogether. Did DOJ and the White House want the riots? Who paid for the bus and plane tickets for the outside agitators (or should I say carpet baggers) who were the worst of the rioters? I´m just sayin´ . . .

Attorneys send letter to senators

A group of 20 attorneys from across the country with experience handling sexual assault cases sent a letter on Thursday to the co-sponsors of the Senate’s campus sexual assault bill. The attorneys, who have all represented students accused of sexual assault who are now suing their universities for lack of due process, wrote that while sexual assault needs to be addressed, rights of the accused need to be preserved. “We are concerned that the complexity of the problem and the momentum to find a solution to the manner in which colleges handle these matters will overwhelm any effort to ensure fair treatment

Dear Reader (including those of you under quarantine), Well, this “news”letter usually begins one of two ways: serious or jocular.

If I were in charge of overseas contingency operations at the Islamic State or al-Qaeda, I would send as many suicide-bomber types back to America (and France and Britain) with a new weapon: Ebola. Airport scanners don’t pick it up. The incubation period is long enough to get the human biological weapons past screeners without detection. I’d tell them: Take as many connections as

Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, a bio-ethicist and influential health adviser to President Barack Obama, stirred the pot in an article in the October issue of, “The Atlantic” under the headline, “Why I Hope to Die at 75.” “The mayor personally disagrees with his brother’s view on dying at 75, but he also believes it’s important to look at what Zeke was really exploring, which is how to live a full life –

Not long ago, the 67-year-old Phoenix engineering firm owner was going through a suitcase he carried on an excursion to Europe, a foray with two high school buddies in 1964. And there it was: a ticket he got for parking his motor scooter in a no-stopping zone in Lerici, a village in the oft-traveled northern region of Liguria. Atherton had thrown the ticket into

They used to deport illegal aliens. They used to shoot deserters. But that was then and this is now. So the three Afghan Army deserters who fled Camp Edwards and, after a short sojourn at a local strip club, took off for Canada, are now begging for political “asylum.” And we all know what political asylum means — instant welfare, forever. Instead of going in front of a firing squad, or at least being sent back to Afghanistan to fight the Taliban, the deserters are likely to score EBT cards, MassHealth, WIC vouchers, Section 8 housing, free translators — the full Tsarnaev, in

Tom and Jerry cartoons on television are being accompanied by a warning that they may depict scenes of "racial prejudice". The classic cat and mouse cartoons, some made more than 70 years ago, carry a warning for subscribers to Amazon Prime Instant Video. There have been claims of racist stereotyping in the depiction of a black maid in the cartoon series. Amazon´s warning says such prejudice was once "commonplace" in US society. Tom and Jerry, once a staple of children´s television on British television, is being presented with a cautionary note about "ethnic and racial prejudices".

Kansas Tea Party supporters are threatening to sit out the state’s pivotal Senate election, potentially dealing another blow to the reelection hopes of Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.). Though schisms within the GOP base rarely have such an outsized impact on a general election contest, the lack of support from the conservative base could be devastating to the vulnerable Roberts’s chances against surging independent Greg Orman. Multiple sources tell The Hill that a group of Tea Party leaders in the state are meeting Wednesday to try to decide whether they should go to bat for the incumbent this fall or sit out of

Americans love animals, even cats. Eight million stray dogs and cats find their way into animal shelters every year, and the lucky ones are adopted into a warm home with a loving family. Shelters are operated by small charities usually called “humane societies,” whose good deeds are funded by private generosity. The Humane Society of the United States trades on the good of others to finance a radical agenda. In May, the Humane Society and a handful of other radical animal-rights groups had to write a $15.8 million check to the Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus for damages done. The

In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives.

Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

In a speech in Boston, First Lady Michelle Obama left behind talk of exercise and school lunches, exchanging it all for bald politics by claiming that under her husband the US economy is now better off "by almost every economic measure." The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up. In her remarks, Obama pushed the President´s newest campaign line that he has saved the economy based on

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey.

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in
