Ferguson is Sick

We are barraged again by war in our midst, a war over something as nonsensical as skin color.  This war has been with us since the creation of man in God’s own image, and its root is an innate hatred towards God, best reflected in the discriminatory destruction of our fellow man due to any quality, as seen in the case of Cain and Abel.  This hatred is a sickness we bring upon ourselves when we agree with the enemy of God that men are not created equal, nor endowed by that Creator with unalienable Read more […]

Black Lies Matter More Than Truth on Ferguson Anniversary

And here we go again with another state of emergency in Ferguson, Missouri. In case you have blessedly forgotten what all the fuss was about, Ferguson was the scene a year ago of the shooting of black teen Michael Brown by a white police officer, what’s-his-face. I don’t say that to be disrespectful to Officer Darren Wilson, who has had his life ruined for doing the right thing. But the majority of the media stories on the anniversary of that shooting focus on Brown and seem to have forgotten Read more […]

National Crime Wave is the Price of Liberals’ Anti-Police Antics

The Wall Street Journal has dubbed it the “Ferguson Effect.” Thanks to liberals’ efforts to gin up racial warfare and dub police as racists, the nation’s decades-long decrease in crime is spinning into full reverse. In Baltimore in May, violent crime was up by 60 percent, according to the Journal, and arrests are down by 50 percent, with 32 shootings over the Memorial Day weekend alone. Milwaukee reports homicides up 180 percent over the previous year. In St. Louis, shootings were up Read more […]

Jay Z and Beyoncé Bankrolling Liberty or Slavery?

Jay Z and Beyoncé bankrolled protesters in Baltimore and Ferguson with tens of thousands of dollars in bail money, a writer and social activist close to both of them claimed. “I can say I’ve personally helped facilitate donations they’ve given to protesters directly and that they never ask for anything in return, especially publicity,” author Dream Hampton told the Daily News in an email. In my former life I was a big fan of pop culture. It consumed me.  So hearing that Jay Z Read more […]

This Cannot Be a Hate Crime, Comrades

Black men beating up a white man for failing to answer a question about Michael Brown correctly: definitely not a hate crime. Here’s the video for your viewing pleasure (fight starts at about 1:40): According to my local Fox 2 Station: The video shows man seated at the front of the MetroLink train can be seen talking to several young men.  After a heated exchange the man wearing a red shirt and hat punches the seated man in the face.  The man puts up his fists to protect himself Read more […]

Here’s Proof the Nation Has Learned Nothing from Ferguson

In Ferguson the poor get jail time for small-time non-violent, non-damaging infractions. A prosecutor and court in the Atlanta area were just fine with that. The good news is that, when the court saw themselves in the light of a viral news story about what they had done, they reversed themselves. Nothing gives people a conscience like knowing that other people are watching. But, until yesterday, it looked as if the prosecutor and the court were going to make an African American laborer Read more […]

Money Privilege in Ferguson

Whether or not it falls along racial lines, money privilege is a real problem. Every time a white person is shown to have privileges we are all told with great confidence and moral superiority that this is the problem of White Privilege. I’ve pointed out that much of the rage in Ferguson isn’t about the character of cops as much as the way the entire municipal system is aimed at shaking down and jailing poor people—who in the area around Ferguson will be mostly African American. Well Read more […]

Ferguson Sued for Running Debtors’ Prison

Federal lawsuit alleges that jailing poor for inability to pay fines amounts to debtors’ prison. It is important to remember that long before the shooting of Michael Brown, various reporters had noticed the re-emergence of what is basically debtors’ prison. I posted about the “re-invention” of debtors’ prisons back in December 2013.  There was nothing noticeably “racial” about the story initially because the real issue was not one’s race but one’s income level. When the Read more […]

More Criminals in Ferguson. Will They Too Get Rewarded?

Why should they be punished if Dorian Johnson was rewarded with a city job? According to a report in the Smoking Gun (“Surveillance Video Shows Tidal Wave Of Looters Ransacking Ferguson, Missouri Market.”), authorities are asking for assistance to identify nearly 200 looters who took part in a grand theft following the decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson. In a bid to identify more than 180 looters, police today released surveillance video from inside a Ferguson, Read more […]

DOJ to Recommend Officer Not Be Charged in Ferguson Shooting

It’s not a totally done deal yet, but the New York Times reports (with indignity) that the Department of Justice is preparing a report that will recommend Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson not be charged with federal civil rights violations in the shooting of black teenage thug Michael Brown. The FBI investigation into the incident that sparked months of rioting funded by left-wing extremist groups found that there was no — repeat, NO — evidence to support civil rights charges, despite months Read more […]

Soros Funding Ferguson, ‘Black Lives Matter’ Protest Groups

In case you’ve wondered why exactly the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, became a national news story, it’s not because it reveals any inherent racism in the system. Rather, it’s because dedicated, interconnected groups of outside agitators roused their rabble and exploited the gullible media to turn a straightforward shooting of a criminal suspect who attacked a police officer into a national scandal. Some of the groups that made that happen — such as  the Gamaliel Read more […]

Ferguson Doubles Down on Municipal Piracy

Ferguson plans more municipal piracy: to increase revenue by increasing police ticketing. As I wrote about awhile back, much of the anger at police in Ferguson was arguably not driven by stories of police brutality or excessive force. The anger was driven by a patchwork of small towns that generate revenue by repeatedly fining people who don’t have means to pay. The result is an inordinate number of people with arrest warrants in various towns who have not committed serious crimes, and occasionally Read more […]
