In this afternoon’s post, XBRAD applied the term “certain instigators” to define the thugs and race-baiters who wish for “black rage” and senseless violence in Ferguson rather than any acknowledgement of facts or desire for justice. Those instigators have fanned the flames of racial hatred, demanded that due process be set aside so that revenge could be exacted, and assiduously masked the REAL issue of the Ferguson story: police overreach. (No, I am not talking about the shooting death of Michael Brown. Reaching for a policeman’s firearm in a wrestling match almost guarantees such an outcome.) I am talking about law enforcement who treats every citizen as a suspect and potential perp. Cops that sight in on unarmed civilians and scream that they are going to kill them. Cops with little restraint, regardless of skin color of either the officer or the citizen. Who might be eager to suppress that issue? Our highest law enforcement official in the land. And the President whose vision of government is one of omnipotence and intimidation.
The old saying, “You’re known by the company you keep”, certainly applies to those two. Behold, the “certain instigators” of Ferguson:
Birds of a feather. They have far more than skin color in common. They are hucksters. Bigoted, race-baiting charlatans. Despicable and dishonest. They see an opportunity for racial agitation in Ferguson, and in Wappinger Falls, NY, Durham, NC, Sanford, FL, but apparently none in Duncan, OK, or in South Salt Lake, UT, or Chicago’s projects. And they are indistinguishable from one another, except that two of them are supposed to be supporting and defending the Constitution.
For people like Tim Scott, Alan West, Mia Love, and Dr. Benjamin Carson, skin color is the ONLY thing they have in common with those pictured above. Something about content of their character, I believe.
