Members of the New Black Panther Party have been flooding into Ferguson, Missouri, to foment unrest, increase violence, and stoke the flames of racism. This is not theory, nor an overstatement. Continuous updates on its website confirm the group’s intentions and purposes:
All comrades are alive and well … unnamed men in ski masks blasting on the crowds … believed to be pigs agitating … slander campaign … from the assassins of Michael Brown….
Pigs tear-gassed the St. Louis residents … Panthers in the middle … riot gear … and returned push with bottles thrown, bricks, and available self-defense options….
This is the same revolutionary language leaders of the party used when invading the unhappy town of Sanford, Florida, back in 2012 following the shooting of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman. Three of them joined in a phone call to plan disruption and violence there:
[W]e got to suit up and boot up … and get prepared for the war that we’re in … this stuff got to boil over, and all your greats talked about that happened to be bloodshed involved with revolution – true revolution means some bloodshed, so there’s blood being spilled because there’s a new life that is beyond this bloodshed.
This reflects the revolutionary intents and purposes of the “party,” going back to its beginning. The ADL – the Jewish Anti-Defamation League – has had this gaggle of criminals on its radar for years, reporting that
Much of the NBPP’s ideology derives from the notion that African-Americans continue to suffer as a result of a racist white power structure that has oppressed them politically and economically since slavery. The primary perpetrators of this institutional racism, according to the NBPP, are whites, whom it views as ultimately responsible for Black exploitation; Jews, whom it sees as wielding disproportionate control of political and economic affairs; and law enforcement, which it sees as facilitating racial injustice on the ground.
If they were operating alone it would be bad enough. But this revolutionary collection of collectivists has a lot of company: there are the “tourist looters,” leftovers from the Occupier movement, the United Nations, and, inevitably, Eric Holder on orders from his boss.
When reporters from the Washington Post were interviewing an officer with the Ferguson Police Department, he showed them a sheaf of more than 50 arrest reports and said: “It’s like looting tourism. It’s like they are spending their gas money to come down here and steal.”
Occupiers with nothing better to do have also shown up, instructing protestors how to make home-made gas masks out of hospital masks and duct tape.
The Secretary-General of the United Nations has also gotten into the act, demanding the local authorities in Ferguson “abide by international standards in dealing with demonstrators.” As Alex Newman pointed out in his article at The New American, that must mean that the S-G wants them to treat protestors like China treated protestors in Tiananmen Square in 1989. Or like Putin treats protesters in his new soviet state of Russia. Noted Alex:
Most of the UN’s member regimes are notorious for human rights abuses. The UN’s military forces, called “peacekeepers” in a perfect example of Orwellian thinking, are marauding all over the world while engaging in heinous abuses – especially against Africans and their descendants.
All of this is obvious to Ron Johnson, the Missouri State Highway Patrol Captain who is trying to keep a lid on things. He reported Tuesday morning that 78 more people had been arrested Monday night, noting that only four of them were from Ferguson. Fifty-six of those arrested were from outside Ferguson, while another 18 were from states like California, New Jersey, Texas, and Illinois. He said:
Our officers came under heavy gunfire. This was not an act of protesters. This was an act of violent criminals.
Protestors are peaceful and respectful. They don’t clash with police. They don’t throw Molotov cocktails.
To make the point, he held up two handguns and a Molotov cocktail his people had seized while making those arrests.
Johnson had little support from another outsider, a ward committeeman from St. Louis. Anthony Bell expressed sympathy and support for the protestors, claiming that they were just boys letting off a little steam:
To get them to go home is going to be difficult. The young people who come into the world nowadays, they have minds of their own….
[They’re just] releasing frustrations. We’ve got to let them vent.
Boys will be boys, don’t you know? And besides, who is this we? He’s from St. Louis, ten miles down the road from Ferguson.
One observer with no apparent agenda showed up to see what was happening and then wrote about his experience. Marc Lamont Hill, a contributing writer for CNN, commented:
It was a peaceful rally. I was at the rally, at the church….
I was standing there talking to them. They said they were committed to having a peaceful march….
Two things seemed apparent to me: one was that [some] young people … moved beyond an area that [was restricted]: the command center. They attempted to enter that area … somebody did.
Second … there is a small group of people who are doing something different and out-of-step from everyone else. They’re out-of-towners. The ones [in that group that] I spoke to are actually from Oakland. I saw them last night past curfew. I saw them this morning. They are the ones who initiated violence.
All of this was just too much temptation for Obama to stand, and he ordered his enforcer-in-chief, Eric Holder, to see for himself what he could do to keep the kettle boiling in Ferguson. He is due to arrive on Thursday to confer with FBI officials in person (such conversations by telephone are just too unsatisfactory, don’t you know). This is the administration that provided Ferguson police with leftover military equipment and then criticized them for using it in dispersing angry crowds. But, never mind, he is on a mission of peace and love and so forth….
The media has also had a serious hand in making things worse in Ferguson. Fox News Channel’s Howie Kurtz, host of “MediaBuzz,” saw Huffington Post’s coverage – if it can be called that – of events in Ferguson, and called them out for it:
Some liberal outlets [are] creating almost a lynch mob mentality around this. [For example] the Huffington Post today, screaming banner headline “Arrest Him.”
Now, [neither] the Huffington Post, nor you or I, knows exactly what happened [in Ferguson during the shooting]. When you cross that line into becoming an advocate … demanding that somebody be prosecuted before the facts are in, while the investigations are going on, you’re grandstanding, you’re trying to keep the story alive….
Of course they are. Here’s another one of those opportunities not to be missed, to promote their agenda: more government, preferably at the national if not the international level. To do that, the local police must be denigrated, embarrassed, and harassed in their efforts to keep the peace. Their officers must be threatened, and the officer involved in the shooting of Michael Brown must move out-of-state to an undisclosed location to keep himself and his family safe.
Riots will continue in Ferguson until the truth comes out. There is strong evidence that the officer, Darren Wilson, was defending himself “in the gravest extreme” from a monster fresh from stealing and then intimidating a convenience store clerk who dared to challenge him. Still on an adrenalin high, it’s likely that Brown didn’t take kindly to the officer’s request that he stop blocking traffic and instead walk on the sidewalk. Once the truth comes out, all the miscreants and criminals and troublemakers will disappear, having accomplished what they came for, which has nothing to do with the truth.
