Obama And The Media Are Stirring The Pot In Ferguson, But Real Leaders Are Trying To Bring Us Together

From End of the American Dream

Ferguson Protesters Burning American Flag - YouTube ScreenshotBarack Obama says that the notion that our laws are not being enforced uniformly is “rooted in reality” and that the rioting in Ferguson will “make for good TV”.  Time Magazine says that the Ferguson riots “are part of the American experience” and “are a necessary part of the evolution of society”.  Statements such as these stir the pot in Ferguson and provide fuel for the violent protests that have erupted nationwide.  And now that protesters are rioting and looting in major cities all over America, all sorts of angry and dissatisfied individuals are coming out of the woodwork.  For example, CBS Seattle is reporting that “communists” and “Palestinian groups” have joined the protests in Portland.  This kind of civil unrest draws them in like a moth to a flame.  But instead of stirring the pot in Ferguson like Obama and the media are doing, real leaders are trying to bring us together.  Setting fires and destroying businesses is not going to solve anything.  But if we love one another and resolve to work together, anything is possible.

If federal, state and local authorities wanted to prevent the violence that we have witnessed in Ferguson, they could have done it.  They had more than three months to prepare, and they had control over exactly when the grand jury decision would be announced.  All of the key areas of Ferguson could have been absolutely inundated with police and National Guard troops.  But instead, police and firefighters were held back, and National Guard forces were nowhere to be seen on Monday night.  So either this was a case of gross incompetence on the part of the authorities, or someone wanted this to happen.  For a complete analysis of this, please see my recent article entitled “Did They Want More Violence In Ferguson? 10 ‘Coincidences’ Too Glaring To Ignore“.

In addition, authorities also had to know that if images of rioting, looting and burning buildings were broadcast nationwide from Ferguson on Monday night that it would likely spark similar incidents in other cities.  And that is precisely what has happened.  For example, the following is from a CNN report about what happened in Oakland on Tuesday night…

Perhaps the greatest concentration of turmoil Tuesday night was in Oakland, where vandals smashed the windows of a car dealership and looted several businesses, including a T-Mobile cell phone store.

Some also set several bonfires in the city. One row of bonfires stretched across a road, blocking off access, footage from CNN affiliate KPIX showed.

Sadly, similar acts of violence are being reported all over the nation on Wednesday.

But these are not spontaneous protests.  This kind of rioting has been hyped for so long on the big mainstream news networks that it became something of a self-fulfilling prophecy.  Even Barack Obama knew ahead of time that the violent reaction to the grand jury decision would “make for good TV”

“There is inevitably going to be some negative reaction, and it’ll make for good TV.”

And after the violence that we saw on Monday night, Obama added even more fuel to the fire on Tuesday when he made the following statement…

“A grand jury made a decision yesterday that upset a lot of people. And as I said last night, the frustrations that we have seen, are not just about a particular incident. They have deep roots in many communities of color, who have a sense that our laws are not always being enforced uniformly or fairly. That may not be true everywhere. And it’s certainly not true for the vast majority of law enforcement officials, but that’s an impression that folks have and it’s not just made up. It’s rooted in reality.

Of course the mainstream media is generally taking the side of the violent protesters as well.  For example, Time Magazine’s Darlena Cunha actually penned an article entitled “Ferguson: In Defense of Rioting“…

    With the outcome certain and control of the timing of the decision controllable there can be no other reason for what happened other than this riot was what was wanted by this Obama administration!
