The justifiable homicide of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, is simply about one issue.
Had Michael Brown been white or Darren Wilson been black, this would have been nothing more than a brief story in the St. Louis news.
But instead, the mold for the narrative was there, so facts be damned! All the racial-grievance industry and the radical left needed was a dead black man and a white shooter. It was a bonus for them that Darren Wilson happened to be a cop.
The evidence is overwhelming that in the last minutes of his life, Michael Brown robbed a store. He then attacked a police officer and had Darren Wilson lost consciousness from Mr. Brown’s blows to his head, there would probably be another name on the police memorial in Washington, D.C.
Multiple photos have surfaced showing Mr. Brown flashing gang signs. Other reports have indicated that Mr. Brown’s step father, who shouted out, “Burn this b**** down!,” is also a gang member.
Comedian Chris Rock made a video awhile back called “How not to get your a** kicked by the police.” He has three simple words in there that if Mr. Brown had listened to, he would be alive today.
“Obey the law.”
The riots in Ferguson are simply the beginning. Unfortunately, this is going to get a lot worse. Radical leftists control the administration. They want this outcome. After the election defeat, Barack Obama met with Al Sharpton and other hucksters who are inflaming the situation in Missouri. He reportedly told them he wanted the protests to “stay the course.”
What is “stay the course?”
Rioting is a pretty safe answer. After the Missouri prosecutor announced the grand jury was not indicting Mr. Wilson, Mr. Obama took to the airwaves and promptly inflamed the situation. Outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder demanded that the police show restraint.
That’s right. The agitators are throwing Molotov cocktails at the police and the police are the one’s who are supposed to show restraint. Parts of the city are being burned down but in the warped world of Messrs. Obama and Holder, the police, not the rioters, are the problem.
The riots have been taken over by hard-core, far-left-wing radicals. Their goal is riot, civil unrest and in their deepest, darkest fantasies, a revolution in America.
In Ferguson, the riots go out of control. Liberal Democrat Gov. Jay Nixon activated the National Guard but did not deploy them. Missouri’s lieutenant governor, Pete Kinder, accused Mr. Nixon of folding to pressure from the Obama Regime and keeping the troops away from Ferguson.
With the help of the Obama Regime, these protests are spreading. The hope the radical leaders have is there will be another spark someplace that will create even more riots.
For real Americans, this is a grim situation. The police chief in Ferguson said he could not have stopped those riots with 10,000 officers. He told people they were on their own. The police in Ferguson warned people to buy guns because when violence happened, they would be on their own.
That is the real message from Ferguson. With radicals in the White House, who want to see rioting, every real American needs to take action. Your community is not safe. You are not safe.
If you do not own a firearm, there is no time like the present. If you don’t know how to use a firearm, get trained. Understand the law in your jurisdiction on self-defense.
With Mr. Obama in charge, Ferguson will not be the last riot. It is only the beginning. And if the radicals are able to spread civil unrest through the nation, there is one thing everyone must remember.
When seconds count, help from the police is minutes or even hours away.
