Ferguson Violence: Protesters Warn "The Revolution Won't Be Televised" - 'Rubber Bullets & Tear Gas' Update

Tyler Durden's picture




 

UPDATE: As darkness falls once again in Ferguson, Police are out en masse and ordering people back to their homes, using tear gas and rubber bullets...

 

And police are using tear gas and rubber bullets to clear the area...

 

 

 

 

Police are ordering people back to their homes...

 

 

*  *  *

A day of protests and vigils Sunday over the death of Michael Brown, a black teenager who was killed (allegedly shot 8 times) following an altercation with a Ferguson police officer, turned violent overnight with reports of riots and looting... and the violence is continuing today. As the following images suggest, there was a lot more bubbling under the surface of middle America than concern about one young man's death as Ferguson's full SWAT team is in force. As one young protester screamed, "the revolution will not be televised."

 

A selection of clips...

"The revolution will not be televised"

 

More looting...

 

and the Police are out in force today...

Chris Rock said it best, "there's black people, then there's N*#@@s and black people hate N&#*$&@s"  lol  that was truely one of the greatest standup routines ever.  

 

The people that have a brain don't mix the two.  

 

One side request: can the Bernanks have his car break down while driving through that area then get out of his car and go to that convenience store that's being looted and try to use the pay phone.  I would love to watch that unfold.

Ok well I guess I like him as a professional and not personally.  I'm not looking to move in with the guy or carpool with him every day, I just listen to his comedy and laugh.  I agree though, his career would do much better if he kept his political ideas to himself.

I find it tragic that another youth, race unknown, who in fact 'didn't do nuffins' and was just 3 credits short of becoming America's first Interstellar Starship Captain and Ambassador to the Multiverse, was cut down, apparently shot in the back by a cop who no doubt 'feared for his life.'

There's zero reason all these 'Blacks chimp out' and 'Fearful cop shotguns 7 year-old and his puppy' stories cannot be written by machine.

Perhaps they are.

Everything you were taught is a lie to manipulate you.

Lifted from Vox Day minutes ago:

"I'd heard that a fair amount of Alex Haley's Pulitzer-prize winning "Roots" was fictitious, but I didn't know that a considerable amount of the book was plagiarized, or that the entire thing is about as historically legitimate as "Star Wars"."

Unfortunately, the general public is largely unaware of how Haley's monumental family autobiography, stretching back to 18th-century Africa, has been discredited. Indeed, a 1997 BBC documentary expose of Haley's work has been banned by U.S. television networks - especially PBS, which would normally welcome such a program.

Banned.

Because the truth will free your mind, and a mind free of guilt is much harder to control.

Unfortunately, the general public is largely unaware of how Haley's monumental family autobiography, stretching back to 18th-century Africa, has been discredited. Indeed, a 1997 BBC documentary expose of Haley's work has been banned by U.S. television networks - especially PBS, which would normally welcome such a program.

Coincidentally, the "Roots" anniversary comes amid the growing scandal over disclosures of historian Stephen Ambrose's multiple incidents of plagiarism. Because as Haley himself was forced to acknowledge, a large section of his book - including the plot, main character and scores of whole passages - was lifted from "The African," a 1967 novel by white author Hal Courlander.

But plagiarism is the least of the problems in "Roots." And they would likely have remained largely unknown, had journalist Philip Nobile not undertaken a remarkable study of Haley's private papers shortly before they were auctioned off.

The result was featured in a devastating 1993 cover piece in the Village Voice. It confirmed - from Haley's own notes - earlier claims that the alleged history of the book was a near-total invention.... Historical experts who checked Haley's genealogical research discovered that, as one put it, "Haley got everything wrong in his pre-Civil War lineage and none of his plantation ancestors existed; 182 pages have no basis in fact."

Given this damning evidence, you'd think Haley's halo would long ago have vanished. But - given this week's TV tribute - he remains a literary icon. Publicly, at least. The judge who presided over Haley's plagiarism case admitted that "I did not want to destroy him" and so allowed him to settle quietly - even though, he acknowledged, Haley had repeatedly perjured himself in court.

The Pulitzer Prize board has refused to reconsider Haley's prize, awarded in 1977 - in what former Columbia President William McGill, then a board member, has acknowledged was an example of "inverse racism" by a bunch of white liberals "embarrassed by our makeup."

"In the late 1960s, Harry Courlander — a white man — composed The African, a fictional work about a young African boy who is captured, made to endure the horrors of the mid-Atlantic passage, and eventually sold into slavery in America. In 1978 he sued Haley for plagiarism. Upon expressing regret that at least 81 passages were lifted virtually verbatim from Courlander’s novel and recast in Roots, and upon the Judge’s unambiguous finding that Haley was guilty of plagiarism, Haley agreed to an out of court settlement whereby he would pay Courlander $650,000 (roughly $2 million in today’s currency).   

In his pre-trial memorandum, Courlander argued that had Haley not copied from his novel, “Roots would have been a very different and less successful novel, and indeed it is doubtful that Mr. Haley could written Roots without The African.” Roots, Courlander continues, “copied [from The African] language, thoughts, attitudes, incidents, situations, plot and character.”

An English professor from Columbia University, Michael Wood, submitted an Expert Witness Report to the court. His comparative analysis of the two novels thoroughly substantiated Courlander’s allegations. “The evidence of copying from The African in both the novel and television dramatization of Roots,” he declared, “is clear and irrefutable.” The plagiarism, Wood insisted, “is significant and extensive.” Whether it is “copied” or “modified,” The African is “always” “consulted” by the author of Roots. The “essential elements” of Courlander’s work — “phrases, situations, ideas, aspects of style and plot” — constitute “the life” of Roots.

Judge Robert J. Ward concluded: “Copying there was, period.” Years later, Ward came forth in an interview with the BBC and admitted that Haley “had perpetrated a hoax on the public.”

During the trial, Haley swore that he personally had never read The African and that “the life” of Courlander’s book had found its way into Roots courtesy of careless research assistants who failed to document their material. However, a “minorities’ studies” professor, Joseph Brucac from Skidmore College, signed a sworn affidavit in which he noted that he and Haley had indeed discussed The African at least five years prior to the publication of Roots. In fact, Brucac even lent Haley his own copy of it."

You are right, blacks are violent motherfuckers, but so what? They play hoops like a motherfucker too. Cops can't be the judge, the jury and the executioner. Even blacks deserve their Constitutional rights. Most of those shitbags could have deserved to die, who knows? But the police can't decide that. Because next, who knows WHO they might take a disliking to. It will be like Hitler's SS shooting people at their whim in the streets.

Hateful racists come in all stripes.  I had the misfortune of living in a predominantly black innner city area for a few years.  I found out quickly, but not quicly enough, that some of the folks there hated me simply because I was white.  And they targeted me again and again with their hatred.  I was fortunate, not because I was able to move away from that environment, but because once I did move away, I didn't hate all blacks because what a few had done.  These shit bags spewing their racism on here are just the same, a hateful minority.

So if I understand you correctly, living with blacks you found them completely racist in regard to yourself, but once moving away from them, with the ability to judge from some distance, you are convinced that anyone who would suspect a black person of racist animosity towards a white is a racist themselves. I do find it funny how liberals living in their lily white ivory towers look down on us hooligans living amongst the rabble as uneducated racist misanthropes, unfairly judging people simply by their actions rather than from a much higher plain of enlightenment. Most of us choose to deal respectfully with those we do not agree or share common values, but that is not to say we are ignorant of what lies beneath the surface. You know the majority of blacks are racist because we have told them they should be and they deserve to be and as such are not officially racist as they are justified. While most are very polite and cordial in mixed setting, after seeing the reactions to any critique of Obama, when push comes to shove, we know which side they will fall. The pushing has already started and the shoving is about to commence.

You see black people running away from a white kid walking down a dark street, right, for no reason, right? We are not supposed to believe statistics, nor our personal experiences, only what our politically correct mentors are teaching us. If this worked, which is what they have been forcing down our throats for fifty years, why hasn't it worked? Why, after decades of affirmative action, set asides, Bussing, educational quotas, A BLACK PRESIDENT, do we still have this mess where major enclaves of blacks coalesce to form their own sub cultures premised on if not hate, then complete separation of culture? They don't even want to speak our language. This is a result of the left, of their divisive politics which uses these sub groups for advantage.

Unforchantly this is what happens when you get a increasingly militirized police force.  And a population that is under educated that only votes for one party that takes them for granted.  You get abuse, the leaders know they will just be re-elected no matter what they do (DC Mayor rings a bell) the police work for those elected public servents that are never held accountable so you wind up with a bunch of pentup anger and a giant release.  Then back to the ballot box in Nov. so the cycle can restart.  What has the Democrat party ever done to deserve this un-wavering support of the minorities?  Is it as simple of as calling  the other guy a racist repeaditly with out any supporting facts?  The facts are that the Dems were the party of the KKK, until LBJ, came up with the idea of destroying them by giving them "benifits" that wreck the family unit known as wellfare.

You know how I avoid getting beat down by Negros? Where they congregate, I vacate.

Know how I avoid my dogs getting shot by the cops? I don't call 'em.

Here's an aside, an online masculinity test if you will:

When you detect an intruder who threatens your family you will have mere moments to react; calling the cops will lead to a response time of from 3 to 30 minutes.

You and yours will be at the mercy of your assailant for that time - assuming you got your call off. Assuming the cops show up.

If you do not have the best weapon you can afford, the ammo to feed it, and the training / practice to use it then you, Sir, are in fact a cunt.

And the death of you and your family should it occur is in fact race positive as genetic error code is removed from the breeding population.

With racial references removed: 1) know how to spot and avoid trouble; 2) be fully prepared to deal with trouble when it cannot be avoided.

As a black person, this places me firmly in the "not one of the good ones", "fuck da police" category.

Sorry Wahine, this board has hundreds, if not thousands of members. Do not allow the above comments dissuade you from interacting with those of us who've never shown anger/prejudice to any sect of humanity. Just take note of the idiots making the 'mature' comments and know that you are seeing their true colors.

 

As a white male once married(divorced after I spent 3 years in Iraq) to a black women for 15 yrs, and having an adult child that is mixed, I am nervous about the race wars that will come from the collapse.  There is a lot of underlying anger on all sides of the fence that will only escalate as the economy unwinds.

For a long time the violence as a result of what you call anger has been very one sided.   Please make a note of that fact.  We the victims of the violence are getting pretty fed up.  Stealing my labor via EBT etc etc etc etc etc is bad enough, the physical violence will justifiably cause REAL blowback in due time.  Hopefully you'll open your eyes before then.

Wahine. Do give up hope. Not everyone here is a knuckledragger. What's sick is that TPTB desire so deeply to divide us, and by the comments of some of the trash in this comment section they've done a damn good job at it. 

The black community was once a vibrant community, albiet poor as hell due to real institutional racism. Then the planners stepped in and slowly trained them to give up all of their digity and humanity for a handout, while injecting billions of dollars worth of drugs into the community, all the while still denying them opportunity, and doing everything they could to fan the flames between the races. 

Once they were offered opportunity, they didn't know what to do with it. Viola, a wedge has been created and the fucktards here walked right into it. 

You know what, give up hope. I am. Our own kind (regardless of race you ass holes) are falling for the divide and conquer tactic that's been used for millenia. Too stupid to see that they are being tools. 

We're fucked I tell you. Totally fucked. When morons here bite on the race card, and are the hammer to the racial wedge, you know we're screwed.

hey wahine, i can VAGUELY understand your "disappointement" but you also need to understand the extreme, abyssal, humongous pressure of the political correctness forced upon white people. Furthermore the hypocrisy of the "conversation" about race in the western world by the zio medias (i'm from france)  has just gone way too far to take your "disappointment" really seriously: the medias bias toward not reporting the black on black and black on white crimes and murders and the almost international outrage (even in france) against "evil white racists" when a "white hispanic" shoot a black teen thug wanabee )

The continuous cultural assault on the average , tax-and-welfare-providing-white man is nothing less than a new psychological and physical slavery , mixed with political terrosism (the free thinking, justice seeking white man is labeled as a racysssst  antisemit )

Comments on ZH seem to belong to the few clusters of people who decided to break free from this mountain of BS.

That PC was instituted by the elites, in order to fracture and divide society into warring factions. First they destroy the black community, then wholly blame the white community, which has been EVERY BIT AS MANIPULATED AS THE BLACK COMMUNITY except the blacks are smart enough to realize it, and then offer the solution. 

Ahh yes, the solution. Highly addictive government programs that penalize success and encourage idleness, coupled with a constant bombardment of "you can't make it in the white man's world" which leads inevitably to toxic reverse racism political correctness which, hopefully, per the elites that planned this out, will lead to a race war which will ensure our self-neutering. 

Two peoples with a common enemy are doing that enemies dirty work for them - like idiots, absolute idiots - by propagating the internal divisions that sap our energy and give them pretense for more draconian controls over us. 

And all sides play right into it. We deserve what is coming to us. We really do. Because united we're invincible, and we threw that away.

i understand but there is another aspect to this whole problem about the division instigated by the elites, and it's probably the most politically inccorrect truth: It is that i question the idea that "we" (people who live in a predominantly white country and have chosen to acknowledge that "ask" is not pronounced "ax")absolutly and unequivocally NEED to unite with any "diversity" group (black, muslims, gays or whatever) to DEFEAT the elite.

Maybe i'm wrong but i personnaly know the depth of the tendancy of blacks (or gays or muslim or whatever) to defend the blatant  dysfunctionnality of their own subculture and/or of the behavior of their youth.

Good for the few who manage to break through this compulsive reflexe to find endless excuses, but i don't understand why it would be such an obviously good strategy for white people to invest their time and intellect to try to "reform" or reconciliate at all cost (even the cost of un-limited time loss) with people who don't give any sign of good will.

Such "reconciliation"  strategy sounds all good and warm and nice but it's probably another psycho virus and another distraction designed to slow down the white populations, already in a potentially advanced stage of cultural unity, and who are awake and ready to intellectually attack the ennemy head on.

They don't have an entitlement mentality and they just want what you and I want, nothing else. Yet I walk anywhere near a black neighborhood and I start to sweat, with my CCW close at hand. First thing I am thinking is to get me out of this area!

Fact of the matter is, that reconciliation is pie in the sky until extinguish the fuel that intentionally eggs on racial division, and makes EVERYTHING about race. the institutional, profitable, and highly successful political machine that MUST have racism in society at all costs. Take that down to its knees and there's a chance. It'll take 50 years, long after you and I are gone, but without that approach, I think we're all screwed.

If the cops are killing people for shoplifting then perhaps you may be right, if on the other hand if the cops would actually kill a few for treason then perhaps they should be rewarded. From what I see not many cops have the stones to actually do their job of enforcing the laws on the rich and powerful, just the weak and marginalized.

The kid apparently was running home. His grandmother saw him minutes before and all seemed OK.

First impression is that this is just a standard cop murder but, as always, I am open to listening to all the details before making outrageous accusations. Here in Las Vegas this would not even be news. ditto for Albuquerque...cops kill at will there...but only for serious issue like trespassing a public park

...seriously... we have police with little training and a bad attitude...and did I mention guns. NONE of them EVER get in trouble! 

If things get messy they will get very very messy. I'm betting the police won't even show up. 

 

 

and one more thing...yes blacks are involved in a lot of violence but most are like the rest of us, they just want to get by. The ability of the police to kill without consequence has implications for all of us....black or white....once the tiger tastes human flesh...

And now for the rest of the story.

  • The black teenager attemped to spray a woman with gas and LIGHT IT.
  • The black teenager attempted to spew gasoline all over the ground at a gas station

I was the third downvote and here's why: 

When firing in a self-defense situation, the immediate goal at hand is to STOP THE THREAT (if the threat dies, than that's the consequences of his actions, not your fault, nor your intent). You shoot until the threat stops his attack. EVEN if that requires reloading. 

That is because pistol ballistics compared to rifles and shottys with the right loads, are vastly underpowered, and contrary to MK-UltraWood, a single pistol shot doesn't cause the assailant to fly backwards into a pane glass window and expire on the spot. 85+% of pistol wounds are survived. 

THAT, is NOT the point. What I mentioned is only valid in a legitimate self defense scenario. Seeing that this kid was shot in the back, while unarmed, does not require one to "fire until the suspect ceases his activity". Notice that I did not say "threat", instead I said "suspect". If someone is not a threat, I would suspect that a round or two might may him come too immediately due to, if anything, psychological shock. Firing the weapon without an immediate threat of death or grave bodily harm is by definition, homicide. The kid was murdered. He should not have fired on him period. 

Nope, 8 rounds on an unarmed teenager is a takedown, and that is murder.

Then convict the cop. If the people had protested and marched on th epolice station we would have a legitimate conversation here. But instead we see just anther convenient EXCUSE for theft and destruction. I'm simply tired of people using race as an excuse for bad behavior. Rev King asked for a color blind society where we were judged by our actions and not our race, but we have NEVER been given that opportunity now have we? We went directly from institutionalized white racism straight to institutionalized black racism.

Can you confirm that he sprayed a woman with gasoline? Because if this is true, then that changes the entire dynamic. In that situation, the officer is justified to "stand in the shoes" of the assailed and act on her behalf, which would justify an 8 round takedown. Early reports said that he was merely walking away from the cop. 

So which is it?

I'd have to say as far as 5.56 weapons go it is in fact awesome.

Stock trigger must go eventually - got that long forceful military pull. On rapid fire smoke in the right eye was a mild annoyance.

The smoke problem can be fixed by switching the plastic piece at the back of the stock with a metal replacement .

You can adjust the factory trigger group by removing one of the springs. That will give you an 8 lb trigger pull; or you can upgrade to a Timney or other manufacturers trigger. I put a Timney in mine, and dropped the pull down to 3.5 lbs.

Manuverable, if you've got the 330mm barrel.  Given the standrad-issue body armor worn by a number of potential threats, I went with a 14.5-inch barrelled PredatOBR chambering 7.62mm.  I'll counter the muzzle-climb by aiming for the groin.  Not worried about recoil.  With 7.62, I'm going to drop the guy, even if he's got a plate where I hit him.  I've given serious thought to ordering a customized short-barrel rifle chambering the .338 Lapua.  In any CQB where you are being hunted, the first shot is critical.

The youth unemployment in Greece is more than 60% - imagine the energy sitting around waiting for a catalyst to set it off

same high levels in Spain / Italy / France ...coming to USA

 

all of this is based upon Government POLICY not circumstances - the banks were taken care off despite the massive systemic fraud

Yes, but you have to ask yourself if the racial makeup of the folks in Greece is conducive to this type of behavior....

Yeah. This ain't rocket science. This is what Democracy looks like when government & Police suppress normal activism, citizen participation, and take big money and deals with Donors and Lobbyist.

A) Without normal Activism, Free Press, Real Transparency, Healthy Levels of Small Businesses who can speak out against their government... People Riot
B) Without US Constitutional Individual Rights and with a Constitutional Lawyer President that Take away Civil Liberties, Lies to high Constituents During Campaigning, and turns out to be a War Monger and Dirty War Conductor... You get people Rioting about your "Police State"
C) When Government thinks it is in Charge Not the People, and the government serves Corporations & Wealthy Interest Groups... you get Rioting

"Yeah. This ain't rocket science. This is what Democracy looks like when government & Police suppress normal activism, citizen participation, and take big money and deals with Donors and Lobbyist."

These are just symptoms of a larger problem.

That is....Peak Cheap Energy.  When the only way to keep the Global Ponzi alive when the stores of cheap energy which has made the Ponzi easy to perpetuate dry up....then the swindle, the backroom deal, the lobbyists and all the rest you mention is a foregone conclusion.

When Shale Oil peaks by 2020....(peaking now in most wells in the west....they're just sticking more straws in the ground to make up for it)....along with a whole host of other things such as Peak Old Farts retiring, Peak Labor Force participation and wage growth due to illegal aliens and automation, Peak Debt, etc...etc....all of which converge around 2020 and just after......then these symptom and these riots become more common place.

And so does the ramp up of the para-miltary folks.

Buckle up.   Get off the grid....go solar.  Grow your own food.  If you can....get some land in the country and just stick a used RV on it as a makeshift cabin until you can build something permanent....and if the SHTF before you can.

You've got precious little time.  Do something EVERY day to get to those goals.  Like stacking gold.  Just a little every day or month.  It builds up over time.

Bullshit A-D. Stop trying to ennoble the savage. I see Africans jumping on cars. I see Africans lighting stuff on fire. I see Africans smashing windows and grabbing beer and TVs.

This ain't democracy, government, police, donors, lobbyists, Real Transparency, Healthy levels of Small Business, Constitutional Lawyer President, etc...

This is Africans. Stealing shit because they saw a chance to steal shit. Destroying shit because they saw a chance to destroy shit.

Perhaps this is what you wish working White Folk would do in response to the problems you detailed. 

But this is not that. This is Africa.

Burn it down. The cops aren't going to understand they have gone WAY over the Constitutional line until The People dish out some whoop ass. Sad but true. 

It might even be too late... the shitburger the People are going to serve up for cops, judges and politicians is going to be epic and full of nuts.

Looking forward to it.

Are you suggesting that the Establishment, their Praetorian Guard, and their disinformation agents are going to experience an pogrom?

What do you suppose the participation rate would be on that one?

 knukles   There ain't enough cops and troops on the face of the entire planet to contain the coming End
In fact, cops and troops won't even help.
Shit's coming of Biblical Proportions

There job won't be to face the public. It will be to exterminate the public that won't go with the plan. That is why the in many populated areas, the police are being militarized with military equipment.

Knukles,

I used to think the "open carry rifle" crowd was pushing it a bit.  Now I am not so sure.  

If that crowd marching in front of the police station were carrying slung rifles, the police might respond earnestly.  Absent that, it's just another protest backed by nothing, so probably not.

Don't like your allusion to 'black folks who are fat' and 'will be just fine for a while".

Have you any idea the SHIT these people eat? I guess not.

If you were intelligent enough to discover ,'what food poor people eat', I believe you would not have made your ill advised, ignorant comment. At least I hope so. Otherwise you are inhuman.

You seem like an intelligent fellow, gal:could you kindly please, when  next time you make a comment, do some due diligence aforehand?

Thanks.

I can remember the end to the LA riots.   The state agencies said that the post office would not deliver wlefare checks until the riots ended.   The riots stopped instantly.
