Looting Resumes In Ferguson; Local Police Ordered To Stand Down

Tyler Durden's picture




 

After a day of relative peace, things turned ugly again in Ferguson when shortly after midnight crowds again resorted to looting and vandalism in multiple businesses along West Florissant Ave with the focal point being the QuikTrip convenience store which Mike Brown allegedly robbed. The incidents seemed to gather steam after 12:00am.

According to KTVI, at least 200 St. Louis County Police officers were on scene and helping handle the situation. They confirm the Domino’s Pizza on West Florissant was set fire and burned. They also confirm multiple businesses vandalized and looted. But the shocker happened when county Police told Fox 2 News that its officers were at the Ferguson Market earlier when looters showed up, but were ordered to “Stand down” by Missouri State Highway Patrol incident commanders at the scene and basically withdrew and allowed the looters to have their way with the store.

So if the cops won't protect, then vigilante justice is inevitable:

In other words, first appeasement in the international arena, and now, domestically. Is it surprising then that increasingly the death of Mike Brown appears to merely be a pretext for even more looting? One does wonder just where and why the order to replace the local police with a highway patrol presence came in the first place.

As KFTI further, reports, the Missouri Highway Patrol continues to have incident command at the scene. A spokesman said they are gathering information and plan a news conference later this morning. They did not have any solid information about damage, arrests, or injuries.

As of this morning the looting activity seems to have quieted, but local media outlets report live pictures of cars racing down West Florissant and driving erratic. Furthermore, after being told to stand aside, a strong police presence appears to be returning and moving down West Florissant and standing off with some protestors.

And just in case Ukraine wants some pointers on what "evidence" means, here is photographic and video proof of the overnight events.

Meanwhile, the entire world is watching:

So to summarize: the revolution may not be televised, but the looting will sure be tweeted.

WTF!!!

The FEds send in a platoon of heavily armed BLM agents to stop one old white guy from raising his cattle on land his family used for 100 years!

But the law is told to "stand down" when a bunch of black protestors are ripping apart stores and ruining it for their owners!?

WTF!

I got a lot of love for GOOD, DECENT black people in this country. If you get to know'em, they're some of the most dedicated and loyal friends and colleagues you'll ever have. That said, it's fucking sad as hell that TPTB has made them into a pariah class in our society. It really is. Slavery never ended with all these welfare programs and when you incarcerate so many young, able black men for non-violent crimes like smoking dope, I mean, that shit's gotta stop because these people have and still do have a lot to contribute to our society.

What they need is freedom. They don't know that. But they do. Free the slaves once and for all.

I didn't know where Ferguson is, so I looked it up on Google Maps. A couple of miles west of the action is St. Louis International Airport, which also contains the Missouri Air National Guard. It's kind of ironic that the Feds are so close and are doing absolutely nothing.

Let's keep the "federal" in fedearlism, please.  

 Central government is a cause and instigator of this, not a cure.  LBJ do-gooder demagogue social engineering inspired by Marx ruined the black family integrally.   They used to have intact families and go to church.   Whatever you think of the content of the religion part these were community centers that helped people eschew drug abuse, abuse in general, criminality, etc and did a lot of the work government wanted in on.   For that matter, their families did a lot of the work government wanted in on.

I agree LBJ's great society locked most people into their socio-economic class.  Though blacks made great strides in the 1950's, the introduction of major socialism in the 1960's caused them not only to be locked into their class but regress in many cases. And though it was government who now causes them so many issues they have been conditioned to turn to them for help.

Who ordered the stand-down and why?

Who are the looters?  Are they provocateurs?

Do you think the stand-down was ordered by anybody? More likely it was an unofficial police strike, to show what supposedly 'happens' when the police don't respond forcefully enuf>

in response to what? Petulant cops not allowed to play with their new toys. They will get their way in the end. It is in the dynamic of a Tyranny.

Who are the looters: simple: clueless urban yutes. The provocateurs are the politicians - local, state and federal - spinning it to suit their advantage.

And ffs from the pictures - televised or not - ask yourself the question: why are there more 'journalists' on the street than residents? Does it strike you as a manufactured event? Provocateur too strong a word? 

 

If the people really cared about the militarization of the police, then why wasn't there an outcry over Boston?

The people will readily accept their enslavement, they love and worship their servitude. Except for a few isolated voices, there is/has been no outcry over the formation of the American Police State. It is a done deal, get over it. Richard Perle gloats about it; AIPAC-financed. (I threw that in because there is a connection not easily discovered. So it won't be, not by the average voter.)

In the NYC emergency services (police and EMS mainly) , the term of art is "slow down". 

It happens so often, they had to name it.

They used to squawk it over the handset radios when 911 tried to dispatch a police unit up until Mortorola added CallerID feature to police radios.

Israel-trained police "occupy" Missouri after killing of black youth

(excerpt :

Emulating apartheid

While there is a wealth of scholarship on police militarization in the US, there has been little to no examination of the ways Israel’s security apparatus facilitates it. 

Decades of testing and perfecting methods of domination and control on a captive and disenfranchised Palestinian population has given rise to a booming “homeland security industry” in Israel that refashions occupation-style repression for use on marginalized populations in other parts of the world, including St. Louis.

Under the cover of counterterrorism training, nearly every major police agency in the United States has traveled to Israel for lessons in occupation enforcement, a phenomenon that journalist Max Blumenthal dubbed “the Israelification of America’s security apparatus.” Israeli forces and US police departments are so entrenched that the New York City Police Department (NYPD) has opened a branch in Tel Aviv.

In 2011, then St. Louis County Police Department chief Timothy Fitch attended the Anti-Defamation League’s (ADL) National Counter-Terrorism Seminar, an annual week-long Israeli training camp where US law enforcement executives “study first hand Israel’s tactics and strategies” directly from “senior commanders in the Israel National Police, experts from Israel’s intelligence and security services, and the Israel Defense Forces,” according to the ADL’s website.

Until Thursday night, the St. Louis County Police Department appeared to be the largest most militarized and brutish force operating in Ferguson. “St. Louis County Police” was scrawled across the side of most of the tactical unit vehicles and appeared on the combat-style uniforms of officers aiming assault rifles at peaceful protesters.

The ADL boasts of sending more than 175 senior US law enforcement officials from 100 different agencies to the seminar since 2004, which are “taking the lessons they learned in Israel back to the United States.”

The ADL is just one of several pro-Israel groups forging close ties between US cops and Israel’s security and intelligence apparatus."

An observation.....

I don't see a KFC or a Popeye's getting looted. Come to think of it I've never seen any riots anywhere with them getting looted.

Conclusion....

If I were to open a business in a Ferguson open one of those franchises. It's like future anti-riot insurance.

While we all freak out over morons stealing some TVs, let's not lose sight of the fact that people like Jon Corzine walk around freely after stealing billions of dollars. Let's focus on the bigger picture.

Hank Paulson was right about one thing: there could have been tanks in the streets. And if everyone was half as pissed off then as they are now, those tanks would have taken aim at the banks.

Instead, the tanks will be turned against all of us someday, and a good portion of the people in this country will cheer it on. The fuckers in charge are laughing their asses off right now.

There is a thin 'blue wall' keeping the rest of us from roasting marshmallows at our favorite restaurants and stores and sports stadiums. What is scary is listening to some of the residents and talking heads on the cable news channels talking about the police and the investigation. It is pretty clear that we are closer than ever to riots and looting on a national scale. This may be why the police and other government agencies are being armed to the teeth. It's not to stop rioting in the black neighborhoods - it's to protect, by lethal force, the government itself!

  Jesse and Al know who their base is, and they know that stories about blacks targeting other races don't bring home the bacon.  Remember the Tawana Brawley case?  Al was happy to come to her "defense" before any facts were known, and quietly slithered away when it became clear that she had lied to avoid punishment from her parents. 

  A couple of years ago, I read an article in a Champaign,Il paper that infuriated me.  The story gave a brief account of 23 physical assaults perpetrated by groups of black men against white and asian individuals walking alone in the downtown area over approximately a two month period.  The article was buried toward the back of the paper near the classified section.  Why?  Because a liberalized media doesn't want to cast a negative light on minorities, even when they are just telling the truth.  Had we reversed the races of the attackers, and the attacked, the story would likely have not been largely ignored. 

  People like Al and Jesse figured out a long time ago that a vocal, organized minority can wield a tremendous amount of power, compared to a timid, less vocal majority.  They will continue to change the definition of what constitutes racism, sexism, ___ism, to secure any benefit they can.  The common threads of these groups are the same.  Every "oppressed" person must have an "oppressor".  The favorite bad man at the moment is your basic white guy.  I had no idea how many people I was taking advantage of until it was pointed out to me that even using the wrong wording can be unacceptable behavior.  Fuck that.  I make a point of mocking people (usually white) who want to correct me when I say "black" instead of "African American".  If that offends you, then you've officially run out of legitimate examples of racism. 

  If you want to see real prejudice, you can take a look at what's happenind in Syria, Iraq, or a variety of other 3rd world shitholes.  Nothing says oppression like someone putting your head on a fence spike in the city square because you wouldn't convert to islam.

Liberal Orthodoxy 101: Blacks are always victims.

If you question the orthodoxy under any circumstances, you are a waycist, and subject to termination, exile, and/or SPLC/NAACP lawfare.

Thus, Big Mike is the victim of police brutality, despite assaulting an officer of the law. Let us broaden our scope of inquiry..

Thus, Blacks are victims of "gun violence", despite being the overwhelming perpetrators of said gun violence. You must be disarmed in order to make them safe.

Thus, Blacks are victims of "bad schools", despite their poor conduct and educational habits being the overwhelming contributors to the bad school. Your child's school must be made unsafe in order to make their average test scores higher.

Thus, Blacks are victims of "housing projects", despite being the overwhelming perpetrators of violence, burglary, and vandalism that creates an unlivable environment. Your neighborhood must be made unlivable to ease the conditions they created in public housing.

Thus, Blacks are victims of "food deserts", despite being the overwhelming perpetrators of petty theft, armed robbery, and mob looting that lead to few viable businesses in their community. We haven't come up with a policy recommendation yet, but rest assured, infringement of your right to free association and expropriation of your taxes will be involved somehow. 

Shall I go on? Or can you see the inversion of perpetrator and victim yet?

Our current legal Multiculturalist regime only makes sense when viewed as an orthodox State Religion. If you disagree, or merely point out the obvious agency behind all these social ills, you are a heretic, and shall be made to suffer.

I completely agree; tyrants benefit when the people are divided and are set upon each other.

Do Americans want to save the most important national force in the history of civilization, namely the American society and its system of justice and freedom, or the Dow Jones Average for a privileged class of Wall Street oligarchs?   John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute explains how Americans’ world is darkening as their top court extinguishes the torch of freedom, IMO for an aggressive, privileged class which has open access to the Federal Reserve’s checkbook, i.e., to total power.

In “The U.S. Supreme Court Is Marching in Lockstep With the Police State (think George Soros and John Podesta and Michael Chertoff),” he writes:

The U.S. Supreme Court was intended to be an institution established to intervene and protect the people against the government and its agents when they overstep their bounds. Yet as I point out in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, Americans can no longer rely on the courts to mete out justice. In the police state being erected around us, the police and other government agents can probe, poke, pinch, taser, search, seize, strip and generally manhandle anyone they see fit in almost any circumstance, all with the general blessing of the courts. Whether it’s police officers breaking through people’s front doors and shooting them dead in their homes or strip searching innocent motorists on the side of the road, these instances of abuse are continually validated by a judicial system that kowtows to virtually every police demand, no matter how unjust, no matter how in opposition to the Constitution. These are the hallmarks of the emerging American police state: where police officers, no longer mere servants of the people entrusted with keeping the peace, are part of an elite ruling class dependent on keeping the masses corralled, under control, and treated like suspects and enemies rather than citizens.

A review of the Supreme Court’s rulings over the past 10 years, including some critical ones this term, reveals a startling and steady trend towards pro-police state rulings by an institution concerned more with establishing order and protecting government agents than with upholding the rights enshrined in the Constitution…

When all is said and done, what these assorted court rulings add up to is a disconcerting government mindset that interprets the Constitution one way for the elite—government entities, the police, corporations and the wealthy—and uses a second measure altogether for the underclasses—that is, you and me. Keep in mind that in former regimes such as Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union, the complicity of the courts was the final piece to fall into place before the totalitarian beast stepped out of the shadows and into the light. If history is a guide, then the future that awaits us is truly frightening. Time, as they say, grows short.

Late post... It's interesting how different bloggers have different observations or takes on the events...

Mine is less dogmatic, and more pragmatic:

   [1] In a Law-Abiding society, possession is 90% of the Law.

   [2] In a Lawless society, possession is 100% of the Law.

Suggest you plan, hedge and act accordingly, when it comes to acquiring and retaining your possessions:  ideally, you will want to have Legal Documents + Weapons + Strong Community.  When one or more of these are absent, all sorts of problems arise.

or wanting free speech but only if it's politically correct speech or

wanting a 2nd amndment but voting for the party that tries to ban guns at every turn.

The only thing coming back to bite America in the ass, is 50 years of liberalism that has been running our schools, culture and institutions.

I sat up and learned alot when I watched the Katrina thingy and Bush just sat there twiddling his thumbs. He appointed a Federal Judge, Chertov [sp?] in charge of cleaning up the mess later. During the interview the reporter asked him why the gubmint didn't help these people. Judge Chertov looked at her, shook his head, and said, "Don't rely on the Federal Gubmint to save you."

 

That historic event, those historic words and the 12,000 that were shipped to my town [where crime subsequently skyrocketed] changed much the way I look at these things now.

Plan accordingly, an dif you're wise you'll pay attention to some of HH's advice here on this blog.

Plus, the governor of Louisiana at the time was a Democrap. She also did her part by not calling in the Feds earlier to help. Don't know whether this was decision on the behalf of the Demoncrap party to make Bush look bad, or she was just totally incompetent.

At the time, by law, the governor of the state has to request help. After Katrina the law was changed so that the Fed at their discretion can step in if they think the governor is not doing enough, especially if the governor refuses to declare a state of emergency which is what was required to call in the Fed.

Don't know if this was agreed upon at higher levels on all sides, but the end result is that the Fed has more power now over the states.

So, yes Bush twiddled his thumbs as was required by law. But don't worry, someone is here from the Federal government and they're here to help.

Katrina allowed a big test of gun confiscation in New Orleans.   It went well.   

And no "2nd amendment patriot" response at all.  None.

Which is consistent with all the other tests of gun confiscation.  No "patriot" response at all.  None.

Except for the people in CT who are refusing to register their "assault" rifles.  Katrina caught a lot of people by surprise.  When you hear the confiscation stories, a lot of them involve multiple cops with rifles (i.e. they had the drop on people) and people who didn't know what was coming.  Anybody who relies on things like Katrina as a "test case" is a linear thinker.  Public perception of government action can and will change, and what worked in the past is not guaranteed to work in the future.

What you should all keep in mind is that the current ideas against state aid esposed by individualists developed due to centralised government. De Toqueville documents this very well in the monarchist techniques of containment used before the French Revolution. In allowing poverty to be alleviated by individuals (essentially an inefficient bureacracy was set up) individuals were forced to find their own means of getting by - either through begging, crime, transient labour, or the kafkaesque journeys to isolated bureaucracy.

Meaning that what many today propose as the ideals of individualism actually arise through the effects of the centralised bureaucracy of absolutism. Through dictats of the king the state is diffused into further individual titles and behaviours. Rather than the state having to endure both process and feedback it instead creates kings men which prevent corruption feeding back into the castle. The state can then protect its vital processes and survive into the next era.

One should be able to imagine how the state continues to function in this manner today. Relaying state processes to choice is a method of diffusing the state and allowing it to escape responsibility. We see this very clearly here. If the ideas come down to individual choice in Ferguson the choices are looters, policemen, or armed storeowners. This selection of on the ground choices does not change anything as none of these groups are the real problem, nor are they the solution. Whether you side with looters, police, or businessmen the problem remains: increased militarisation, bank plundering, psyop control of events.

Another example would be lining up for new ID or dealing with bills over the phone. Call-centres and diffuse bureacracy intends to divide the individual from any real power, the structure is set up to be self-sufficient so that individuals self-manage the institutions through individual choice. But in such institutions the individual only defeats himself, there is no real individual choice as he can only deal with the problem at hand or wander through the structure of bureaucracy. All of his choices are irrelevant, they are just strategies of selecting the appearance or the aesthetic of the state. The state as we know, has deepened.

And this is not new, we are just becoming aware of it. It becomes conspicuous to the extent we become aware of the monster we built. It was fine when it was chasing others, but when it turns on us we want to shut it down. This is what no one likes to hear, certainly, but it is the truth. What else were Kafka's stories about other than the individual wandering through bureaucracy and never being able to escape the monstrosity? Is it not the same for people in Ferguson? The stereotypes of the Free Shit Army are of wasteful parasites who give nothing and take everything (this stereotype is a bit akin to the bolsheviks calling the capitalists 'kulaks', when you think of it). But really there is little to envy in such an existence. Waiting for money to be distributed to you, using that money only on certain things, having no money for quality products, being surrounded by a wasteland, being surrounded by abstractions of prison, having to constantly make choices which have no meaning, having no activity which might create meaning, etc. Who wouldn't become violent in such circumstances?

What many won't like being mentioned either is that this mess was created by individualists. Greenspan was a member of Ayn Rand's circle of objectivist ubermensch, Silicone Valley and Wall Street have an endless cult of individualism and the capitalist spirit, and the psyops believe in and study the great individualists from Rand to Dostoevsky. Is not the deep state grounded in the ideology of social contracts and individualism? What is the state besides the shadow of individualists controlling the apparent state through their own will to power and ingenius ethics of social contracts? Are they not just buyers and sellers?

They are a little more than that, and that's why people should be questioning individualism and capitalism rather than preaching about returning to its garden of eden. It never existed. It was a lie.

If individual choice does not matter, if it does not matter who you support in Ferguson, if your contracts are but an aesthetic allowing the deep state to deepen further then what do we do? In regards to the question of charity it is clear that the misanthropic individualism of 'let them eat expired EBTs (or my bullets, but I won't call myself the state)' is simply centralised government calling itself individualism. Instead, shouldn't there be some balance in which people are neither driven to poverty nor misanthropy but to the means of a full functioning life? Not to just the means of participation of whatever is available, that law of capitalist democracy is what got us into this mess in the first place. That is the question for me, how to get to a society that is neither the choice and exhaustive poverty of capitalism, nor the law and deliberate poverty of socialism. How do we get beyond the good and evil of modern economies, and how do we maintain the free potential of individuals along with the meaning inherent in collective groups?

And how do we ensure the next society doesn't end in disaster, from ourselves becoming the new boss?

(I know this is really long, but hopefully there is something useful in it for people.)

You are mistaking fascism for capitalism.  We don't live in a capitalist economy, we live in a fascist one.

The power of fascism is that it feels so much like capitalism it fools us.  Like your assertion that we make choices within the parameters of the system and thus are not making real choices, fascism allows you to make your own choices so long as you don't challenge the supremacy of the state.

Also, democracy is a horrible form of government because it is essentially mob rule, where the majority can make the minority do things it does not want to do.  It leaves no room for individuality only conformity.

The republic was a good start on the path of creating a government treated like the parasite.

We need to get back to that as a people.  We need to get rid of all these social justice programs.  We need to dismantle the regulations, the bureacracy, the standing armies on our streets, and we need to get out of own way.

Individual choice should matter.  We should try to get there.

The problem is that fascism is a response to capitalism, it is hardening of the laws of democracy which comes about due to the contradictions of capitalism itself. What you did not deal with in response to my post is my overall point regarding the genealogy of capitalist ideals stemming from absolute monarchies. Capitalism arises due to conquest of territory, contradictions within the state, the enlightenment's rebellion against the church, and self-management of local territories of kingdoms (what we call property).

That is not to say that what many espouse as ideal capitalism is not better than what we have today. I'm sure it is a major improvement. My argument is in response to the people who seem to discount any role that capitalist logic has played in developing the tyranny we now confront. Where I pointed out that the objectivists and individualists, such as Rand, have contributed to this tyranny is quite damning for some of the ideas many choose to follow.

This is a problem of separation. Or the separation of powers. When are you separate? When is the nation separate from the king? When is capitalism separate from government? When are individuals separate from the collective? If we are completely honest such total separation is not possible. Emptying a building does not necessarily end the practises of the men who once occupied it - instead, if there was any value or necessity in the efforts of those men their efforts will be repeated. In other words, the efforts of the state will continue in another form. This should be clear in the contradiction of libertarians and constitutionalists cheering on the police state either because they have difficulty with black people or they assign a sacred collectivity to the law of property.

Individualism becomes collectivism once the individual adherents come to a certain level of sameness in their ideologies, either through necessity or law.

This is a problem which must be considered now, because if there is some contradiction at the heart of constitutional republics, or individualism, then that problem will fester until society ends in another disaster. There is clear evidence in the arguments here that many consider property sacred over human life, especially when the other human is unrecogniseable; either in reality or due to the aesthetic difference of skkin colour. There is also the problem of losing sight of what violence is to begin with. If one is born without property have they not been looted at birth? This leads to the idea of property being inherently violent in its law, it is a contradiction of choice as one individual is born with property, workers, farmland, and a gun while the other individual is not. The idea of working one's way into wealth is a religion doctrine carried over into capitalism. It is simply untrue, one cannot just work and become equal to the man with property. Genealogy takes precedence, there is more to individual struggles than basic economic contracts.

That is the fundamental problem with capitalist and individualist ideology, it is a negative form of theology as it mystifies contradictions out of the world so as to not have to deal with them. And that is where the connection to government comes in, libertarianism and individualism generally abstracts state laws until they are self-organising principles to live by. Again, this is clear in the idea of small militias taking over the role of the police state. The basic problem is never dealt with, instead it is just given a new reaction. Instead of a centralised government sent in to kill poor people the local residents militarise themselves and keep poor people out. It is just a diffusion of the state, the state's continuation through self-organisation. Property remains a sacred object for an abstract state to control. What we have in this circumstance is the inverse of the Russian socialists in their forced collectivisation of capitalists: they liquidated the kulaks, rounded them up, took their property by force, and killed most of them. Here it is that the poor people who have been taught to be recipents of social capitalism will be punished for being insufficient capitalists without ever having the right to the means of efficiency. How can they be workers without work? How can they magically transition from the collective of poverty to the collective of land ownership? Simple, they cannot. They are refused entry into the individualist collective because they were not predestined to it.

Capitalism and individualism have a genealogy of Calvinism and absolute Christianity, the purest collectivity. That is the contradiction at the heart of its problems.

If capitalists of the new republic refuse to start with an absolute reset, a total redistribution of property and the legal role of each individual as a seller then they have already betrayed capitalism (I'm certain you can see the contradiction in every person being a seller). They are the new crony capitalists, same as the old crony capitalists. And this absurdity gets to the heart of the matter, capitalism was never separate from forms of government, it is a theology of economy used by government to keep citizens trapped within a second order of politics, aesthetic poltics against practical politics. The separation of powers is a tactic of the state to increase its power, to extend its energy it must diffuse that energy throughout the land, making it efficient. Capitalism is a tool of political manipulation, of realpolitik. Nothing more than that, its theology of pragmatics and impartiality is just that, a theology. Capitalism, after the conquest of the New World, was carried off in the political identities of modernity, and it keeps them going. Capitalism works in all forms of government precisely because it appears to be impartial but is not. It is a tactic of state reproduction and the diffusion of its bureaucracy.

To end this, I should say I am not opposed to choice. Not at all. Quite the contrary, I wanted the widest array of choice to the extent that I don't think choice is enough. Like Nietzsche, I think we must go beyond choice. This means there must be something beyond choice of labour or instituting violence against the poor. We need a society in which people desire to work, but in a fulfilling form of work. And we need to live in a way that criminality is neither oppressive nor feared; nor its response oppressive and feared. Crime must be dealt with outside of police and militarisation, in both state and individualist form. This may mean coming to terms with the fact that man is an animal, and animals are violent - and that violence is often a contradiction in having to live within the void of law. We may have to go beyond law and order so as to live with the inherent contradictions of humanity.

That may appear muddled, or even naive, but what I am suggesting is returning to the questions of individuality, economy, and the law of good and evil through a return to the ultimate individualist, Nietzsche, and perhaps even questioning him.

Thanks for your response.

Historical incidents which can’t be now examined with witnesses and evidence are no substitute for the inhumanity we are seeing in real time such as the coordinated assault on innocent people in Ukraine and the bloodbath created by a military nation (Israel) out of control shelling the captive prisoners of Gaza.

Let’s talk now because the evidence is here and the actions are clear. You will agree that history cannot be trusted in that already we see massive inversion of the truth on what’s happening in Gaza. Would textbooks a decade from now be accurate in light of the substantial propaganda and lying news report from the owners of today’s media, who will be the publishers of the history books of tomorrow? Is Hamas going to write those history books?

Translation: American media – and most all Western Civilization media – is Zionist controlled as are Western Civilization's history books.

As to Bessarabia:

Official Russian version of events (wiki)

The Russian ambassador in the United States Count Cassini (maternal grandfather of fashion designer Oleg Cassini and journalist Igor Cassini) claimed in an interview on May 18, 1903:

"There is in Russia, as in Germany and Austria, a feeling against certain of the Jews. The reason for this unfriendly attitude is found in the fact that the Jews will not work in the field or engage in agriculture. They prefer to be money lenders. ... The situation in Russia, so far as the Jews are concerned is just this: It is the peasant against the money lender, and not the Russians against the Jews. There is no feeling against the Jew in Russia because of religion. It is as I have said—the Jew ruins the peasants, with the result that conflicts occur when the latter have lost all their worldly possessions and have nothing to live upon. There are many good Jews in Russia, and they are respected. Jewish genius is appreciated in Russia, and the Jewish artist honored. Jews also appear in the financial world in Russia. The Russian Government affords the same protection to the Jews that it does to any other of its citizens, and when a riot occurs and Jews are attacked the officials immediately take steps to apprehend those who began the riot, and visit severe punishment upon them."[6]

As usual, Fred has all the answers:

But as a non-American, I can't really understand why a Nation of immigrants can't assimilate Blacks? Hispanics and Asians seem not to have any problem. And in The UK, Blacks are much more assimilated into the community. So what is it in The US which prevents Blacks from being assimilated?

And before anyone accuses me of being racist, I have lived in Asia for more than half my life and have been married only once, to an Asian woman for 35 years.

Having lived in both the US and UK i have to say there is something seriously fucked up with US blacks.  They have been raised on hate of whitey and as victims of something hundreds of years ago like it happened yesterday.  UK blacks are just people in the UK who happen to be black.
But UK blacks are not Africian-british or any of that divisive liberal double speak.  They are just people.

But you need to divide before you can conquer i guess.

Serial destruction of the family unit is one issue.  Subsidised poverty is another.  A less than worthless education system doesn't help.  And the targeted introduction of a massive drug trade in black areas along with a factory prison system pretty much seals the deal.

Islam has found converts among American blacks for decades, especially from within the prison population. The militancy of the religion appeals to those who are already given to hostility and violence, I don't think it is the source of the hostility and violence.

Northern whites in the US were once under the illusion that they could better assimilate blacks into their cities than southerners had done. Those illusions ended with the riots of the 1940's-60's. 

I've seen video of the 2011 London riots. I don't detect any advantage or refinement of character in the London blacks compared to blacks in Ferguson or any other American city. Good luck trying to make it so.

My experience suggests that it is a cultural thing. The immigrants I've known from Jamaica, Trinidad, Nigeria and such don't have much problem assimilating. Even Kenyans can quickly rise to the top. My pet theory is that owners deliberately instilled a devisive mindset in their slaves to prevent them from banding together to overthrow the owners. A strong remnant of that culture and mindset has been passed down to today. I think it has a parallel in what TPTB are doing to the debt slaves today. House slaves vs. field slaves, red team vs. blue team, etc.

Correct. The South African Apartheid regime used a similar method -- they gave colored people with a lighter skin tone better treatment and more privileges than colored people with dark(er) skin tones, fostering internal divisions among non-whites and preventing them from making common cause. This tactic worked well up until the point Nelson Mandela arose as a potent symbol for the anti-Apartheid movement worldwide.

The bone chilling part is that the Western media still uses a similar approach to this day. Colored women who bleach their hair and/or skin and use wigs, weaves or hair-extensions are given preferential treatment in the media over colored women who choose to remain natural. For all intents and purposes, the Western media promotes and rewards white-washing among women, and directly borrows from the practices of South Africa's Apartheid regime in how it goes about this.

Let that sink in for a moment, and let it sink in deeply.

Larssen,

Can't say about South Africa!

I live in Washington, DC and there are both blacks here—Americans and Africans.

I deal with them all the time. Africans are easier than Americans. Black American women are the worse, most difficult—again, I am generalizing.

The biggest issue I see: The way black Americans talk. Huge difficult understand them. Why they talk like that is beyond me.

A big Fuck You to white boy. 

The situation now seems dangerous.

And the fact that in past riots, the rioters were not shot only makes it more dangersous, long term. 

Shoot one rioter now, and many other cities might go up in flames in "sympathy".

This rioting should have been nipped in the bud a long time ago. 

Instead, white boy cowered in fear and tried to appease the blacks.

The blacks only took this to be a sign of weakness. 

If I were a law abiding black, I would be very worried about the eventual backlash.

White boys might be naive and confused, now, but they are well armed and they can be quite vicious.

Arrogant thugs beware.

Thanks for pointing it out.  Don't know quite what to make of Sowell's idea. 

I'll have to give it a think. 

 

I've known some rather "backward" Southerners. 

 

But I've also felt the South to be a very friendly place, compared to the coastal cities.  

 

I've attributed that to the ethnic homogeneity and the feeling of safety from petty crime that I've felt on those occasions when I've driven eastward. Once past Albequerque, I no longer feel I have to lock my car doors every time I stop for food.

Nelson Mandela arose as a potent symbol for the anti-Apartheid movement worldwide. -- Eirik Larssen

Apartheid works both ways.

“We (Genocide Watch) are encouraging governments like Australia and the US to adopt liberal asylum policies for South African whites so they can leave South Africa.” – October 2012

That’s the result of apartheid in South Africa --

South Africa has gone “from being the safest country in Africa, to being the rape and murder capital of the world. In Johannesburg, 5,000 people are murdered every year,” while economically excluded white Afrikaners are now living in squalid squatter camps. 

See this:

"In jeopardy: Future of white South Africans -  Genocide Watch expert warns population on verge of extermination" | 06/15/2013 | WND

…From legally mandated race-based economic discrimination against whites to the thousands of farm murders targeting Boers across the nation, the problems are only getting worse. Poverty and unrest are spreading quickly as well...

Genocide

The world’s most prominent expert on genocide, President Dr. Gregory Stanton of Genocide Watch, already warned last year that the Afrikaner population could be on the verge of a government-linked extermination campaign...

“There is thus strong circumstantial evidence of government support for the campaign of forced displacement and atrocities against white farmers and their families,” Stanton said in the Genocide Watch report, adding that the end goal was communist tyranny. “There is direct evidence of [South African] government incitement to genocide.” …

Among the myriad problems associated with the race-based employment system: mass emigration of skilled workers contributing to “brain drain,” soaring poverty rates among whites, chaos for businesses and more.

Hundreds of thousands of economically excluded (white) Afrikaners now live in squalid squatter camps throughout South Africa without so much as running water or electricity.

Hundreds of thousands more have fled to Western nations seeking a better life….

“Almost all whites are educated, literate and generally hard-working, so they should not be poor…The system makes them poor by denying them opportunities and expecting whites to be superhuman and to make money out of thin air.”

By no means authoratative, but I've talked to African immigrants, usually Nigerians, Somalis and Eritreans settled via some kind of UN baloney refugee asylum bullshit program... now mind you... this isn't _my_ assessment, but they look down their noses at "African Americans." They usually point out "African Americans" are about as African as Norwegian salmon, which is to say not at all. "African Americans" are blacks. Africans are Africans. It's a simple distinction that serves its purpose without having to belabor the point. Most African immigrants want nothing to do with the black population.

That said, I met a lot of super black guys in the service. Some of my best NCOs were black guys. I also realized in the service hanging out with some of the black guys that black culture is not a sub culture in the US, it is its own distinctive and unique culture. White service member hung out in "white" clubs, the black guys had their own clubs. It wasn't forced segregation, that's just how it seems to have evolved. Of course you'd see the occasional black guy show up in one of "our" clubs, and I ventured over to "their" club a few times, but I'll never forget the looks I got going in there.

I don't envy the black population in the US at all. They were dragged over in chains and heavily discriminated against from the very start. For a few hundred years the discrimination was institutionalized, then after institutionalized racism was abolished it languished through formal and informal habit, and most blacks were ghettoized. The lack of economic opportunity and casual social discrimination continued to drive a rift between the general population and blacks well into the 20th century. I think the forced integration in the service in the 50s lead the way for wider assimilation of blacks into the population at large, but the larger problems of economic despondency, lack of education, familial breakdown and now institutionalized criminalization have wreaked a heavy toll on the black community.

So here we are today. As others have pointed out... there's a permanent underclas of "niggers" in the US at this point. After 250 years of white institutionalized warfare against them, they are in effect insurgents. They don't aspire to alter their plight, they don't expect anything from whity and if the opportunity arises they rampage.

The problems within that segment of the black community are endemic. Criminal violence is simply the logical outcome of 250 years of deliberate, and then utterly failed government policy.

It needs to be made clear to everybody that the fucked up past is not an excuse for the fucked up present.

El Vaquero,

A racial black racism? How is that different than Jew racism?

By Blake Posey: In the chapter 'Are Jews Generic' he makes the case clear that it's not just Jews that are consistently lashed out at, but there are other ethnic groups just like jews that are condemned not because of who they are, but because of how successful they are when immigrating into new societies to flourish and expand their family buisnesses. Being that some parts of the primary society at hand lag behind in economic terms, they tend to take their anger out on the small segments of society that move in and become middlemen by buying and selling goods in order to become successful from nothing. Envy drives the force of hatred among different types of ethnic groups, whether it be the Armenians, Jews, tribes from Indonesia, Asians, etc.

All humans are racist.  This is not exclusive to white people.

I spent time on a native reserve (six months) and they had an intricate "caste" system depending on how dark the skin was... too dark, "bush nigger" too light, "whitey".  An important factor affecting your position in that society was your skin tone.

Racism is a part of us all but how we deal with it, cognitively, is up to us.  Do we allow it to prejudice our thinking and guide our decisions or do we acknowledge it and use logic and reason to manage the visceral and emotional power of our racism?

Others here speak of evolution (in the progressive sense) and how these looters are behaving like animals (and they are) but to blame it on the color of skin without acknowledging any other factors demonstrates their response is purely emotional, animal...  This animal instinct is what your masters are preying on... they manipulate the population with emotion.

Don't be an animal.

Who sold the slaves to the slavers? African chiefs.

What was traded in exchange for slaves (who were usually POWs)?  Often, Rum.

Why rum?  It was part of a triangular trade, taking sugar from the Caribbean, to the East Coast, where it was made into rum, which was then traded in Africa, for slaves, which were brought to the Caribbean, and traded for.... Sugar!   And because the Africans placed a high value on it, and couldn't make it themselves.

Hi,

Here's some research by Rabbi Marc Lee Raphael,

The following passages are from Dr. Raphael's book Jews and Judaism in the United States a Documentary History (New York: Behrman House, Inc., Pub, 1983), pp. 14, 23-25.

"Jews also took an active part in the Dutch colonial slave trade; indeed, the bylaws of the Recife and Mauricia congregations (1648) included an imposta (Jewish tax) of five soldos for each Negro slave a Brazilian Jew purchased from the West Indies Company. Slave auctions were postponed if they fell on a Jewish holiday. In Curacao in the seventeenth century, as well as in the British colonies of Barbados and Jamaica in the eighteenth century, Jewish merchants played a major role in the slave trade. In fact, in all the American colonies, whether French (Martinique), British, or Dutch, Jewish merchants frequently dominated.

Here are a list of some of the Jewish owned ships

There are many ship lists you can check at the British Admiralty in Grenwich London

Just checking the first name of the list, Aaron Lopez, shows that he ran 21 slave shipments.

You can do more research by checking the extant tax lists from the early 18C - they list the taxable "assets" (slaves) of various prominent Jews. There are also a lot of African American researchers who've done more work on this. This research is common knowledge in Europe; hope this information helps.

"Who operated the slave ships?  Many were Jewish, few were Christian, thems the facts."

Absurd.

I'm guessing this is your source for that little bit of enlightenment:

http://www.jewwatch.com/jew-genocide-black-holocaust-slave-ships.html

It lists 15 ships of Jewish ownership.

All that proves is that jews were involved.

Now do the math.  

Current estimates have the total number of slaves shipped across the Atlantic at about 12 million, although 20 million is also cited if the Carribean trade is included.  

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlantic_slave_trade

Now do the math.  At an average cargo of 200 slaves, your Jewish slave fleet would have to make 4000 voyages, or 266 voyages per ship,  to make the low end of that number.

A typical Atlantic voyage in the age of sail, including port time and refit, would take about 6 months, out and back.  So, each of those ships would have to be in service for 133 years to make those numbers.  And since 30 years is about the life expectancy of a ship of the day, your "facts" come up just a tad short, and we're not even factoring in losses through shipwreck and piracy, which were common in those times.


But keep watching those Jews.  I'm sure you can find something else to slander them with.

 

<edit>

Just to be clear, those numbers were for the northern slave trade.  The Spanish and Portuguese were the principle agents in the southern trade and as of 1492 there were no Jews in Spain - they had all been driven out or converted to Christianity as part of the inquisiton, and most had also left Portugal by the time the slave trade got going.

To summarize:  Christians, Jews and Moslems (Pagans too!) ALL had a hand in the slave trade.
