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...

"happens 24/7/365 (that and flags) all over the globe.  Some sh*t is just so sloppily done..."

Sloppy is the point.  Most of these people still believe in evolution, the moon landing, and 911 the official version; even though they are all outrageous lies and transparent frauds.  Fooling most of the people most of the time is no great shakes.  But getting people to disbelieve their own eyes and reason?  Now we're talkin' some serious psyops ;-)

"Didn't you notice the professionally done protest signs? That team is already on scene. "

They have those on standby at the local Rainbow / PUSH Coalition Headquarters in town.

You know...just for those occasions when you might need a sign.

In this country, you can't say anything remotely close to negative about Jews, Gays or Blacks. If you do, especially if you're a public figure, you will be shamed and appologizing for the next 10 years. Also, it's almost as if it's okay for blacks to kill each other, but when someone else does it, it's a problem. It's like if you have a kid that's a fuck up, you know he's a fuck up, but when someone else calls him a fuck up, you're ready to kill that person. I could go on for days about this shit, but why even bother...

And Chicago supposedly has some of the toughest "gun" control laws in the country. So it should be unicorns and marshmellows for everyone, right?

But retarded politicians (and the people who vote for them-some vote twice in Chiraq) stopped caring about facts a looooong time ago in that town.

Liberal orthodoxy demands blame for African behavior be placed elsewhere.

It's a cottage industry in the Cultural Marxist Centers (aka Liberal Arts Departments), churning out such fantasmagorically disingenious memes like "white privilege", or "the legacy of slavery/colonialism", or "the gun problem".

Actually it's just an African problem. They have never built an advanced civilization, cannot maintain one, and cannot compete in one.

You summed it up perfectly. Just sprinkle a little "white mans burden" and " they are just like us only a different color" and presto, you have the declining cultures and values of the western world.

Yep, we hear endlessly about the War On Women and how they're denied their abortions and birth controll by corporations like Hobby Lobby.

But, it seems there's no War On Blacks touted in the MSM.

Of course, if they did that then they'd really have to ignore the real War On Whites, sorta like they did for as long as they could, when it came to the issue of Polar Bear Hunting or The Knockout Game.

It's like the Vietnam war. Since it was hard to tell who was the enemy and who wasn't, they shot anyone who ran.

They figured they Musta been the bad guys. This is military 'intelligence'.

And how do you know that's what happened?  I've heard atleast 6 different explanations of how this went down.  Each one, very significantly different then the other.  Including one where he was handcuffed, yet was waving his hands in the air surrendering, and one where he was shot, ran away, and came back and was shot again.  Who to believe when none of these stories make any fucking sense.

And the kid tried grabbing the cops gun. I would have shot the fucker too!

Im no fan of the police. And yea shooting the kid 7 times as hes running away is over-zealous. But that kid gave up any right to his life when he tried to disarm a police officer. Fuck him. Asshole thought he was invincible.

Unless there's actual unedited video evidence of the kid doing ANYTHING wrong, then it's bullshit.  Cops lie all the time and lie for each other all the time.  They have zero legitimacy and are little more than domestic terrorists.

Lots of statements by people here without many facts to go on at this early stage.

Lots of assumptions made.

'Prejudice' means to pre judge.

If you've made your mind up already, based on a few photos & videos - you're the perfect target for a Divide & Conquer strategy. Get people fighting among themselves as a diversion. Make sure they never come together for a common cause against a common predator.

(There's also videos of peaceful protests. And there's Twitter posts of blacks speaking out against the looting & property damage; they point out that it takes the focus away from the killed 17 yr old.
