The World Comments On Ferguson

Tyler Durden's picture

Submitted by Mike Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

You know you’ve lost the plot when Egypt, Iran, China and the United Nations all feel so comfortable they have the moral high ground that they publicly chastise the U.S. about events in Ferguson.

Indeed, this has been a theme at Liberty Blitzkrieg all year. I have repeatedly discussed the ridiculousness of our political leaders talking about absurd “humanitarian wars” (which coincidentally tend to aggregate in regions with gigantic oil reserves), while strongly supporting some of the most authoritarian and fascist regimes on earth such as Saudi Arabia.

Whether or not the U.S. ever deserved the moral high ground it possessed just after World War II, this position has been clearly lost in the eyes of the world, and increasingly domestically as well. Politicians can continue to repeat catch phrases from the 1950′s all they want. It’s not going to make a shred of difference.

In case you have any doubt what a embarrassment of a Banana Republic the U.S. has become in the eyes of the world, check out these excerpts from BBC article:

Egypt’s government has called on US authorities to show restraint against protesters in Ferguson, Missouri.

 

It said it was “closely following the escalation of protests” after the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager by a white policeman on 9 August.

 

The statement echoes US President Barack Obama’s comments during Egypt’s crackdown on protesters in 2013.

 

The statement from Egypt’s foreign ministry followed a similar call from United Nations chief Ban Ki-moon, who called on Missouri police to abide by “US and international standards”.

Iran added its voice to the criticism, with Majid Takht-Ravanchi, the deputy foreign minister for European and American Affairs, saying the unrest was a sign of “the phenomenon of racism” in the West.

 

Meanwhile Chinese state news agency Xinhua said that despite the US playing the role of an international human rights defender, the clashes showed “there is still much room for improvement at home”.

 

“Obviously, what the United States needs to do is to concentrate on solving its own problems rather than always pointing fingers at others,” the Xinhua editorial added.

‘Merica.

why the banana graphic?

Unconscious Racism,  that's why.

Banana republic is a political science term for a politically unstable country, whose economy is largely dependent on exporting a limited-resource product, e.g. bananas. It typically has stratified social classes, including a large, impoverished working class and a ruling plutocracy of business, political, and military elites.[1] This politico-economic oligarchy controls the primary-sector productions to exploit the country's economy.[

Now we know how it feels when others give US advice...and some good sound advice they are!

Lesson for us is we should stay out of others business if we dont want others meddling in ours.

The USSA was quick to criticize the former Ukrainian government for using excess force against protestors, but is even quicker to beat down their own protestors using military forces disguised as police.   Hypocrisy anyone? 

Or is this more USSA exceptionalism, that  the rules only apply to everyone else since we are the chosen ones?

Trouble I have being criticized by these 3rd world countries is the nature of the protest. During the Arab Spring, protesters wanted political change. Hoodlums in Ferguson want nothing more than a flat screen TV and some other goodies. Not quite the same.

Suisse's picture

They want political change too. They demand to be able to do whatever lawless behavior they want.

Here come the divide-and-conquer COINTELPRO commenters, trying to make us think that there is no legitimate political agenda and that all the *PROTESTERS* are just criminal looters.

FUCK YOU.  People are sick of cops killing people and being ABOVE THE LAW.  Just like how they are sick of banksters being above the law.  Just like how they are sick of BS politicians who are all just professional liars working for THE MAN.

And fuck you losers who agree with their dumb racist comments.  Get yourselves divided and conquered and go ahead and hate the poor black folks who get systematically abused by the police + etc.  Go ahead and make them your enemy, while the banksters keep laughing on their way to the bank.

Christo2.  The punk ass fuck was shot in the face when he charged the man with a gun who had the legal/moral authority to detain him. 

You sound like a punk ass kid who drives a piece of shit tuner car who gets hassled by cops for being a moron.  The cops are just trying to help your dumb ass from looking like the stupid fuck you are.

The entire thing is a set-up.  A psy-op.  Here is (apparently) some undercover agent giving a warning to the people that escallation is imminent:

Now that the Black Racists have shown up to make money off their racist hate-speech, it's time to consider Black Racism in America today, of whom Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and Eric Holder are the biggest proponents.

There is a certain segment of the Black community that is nothing but a bunch of David Dukes wearing blackface. Anyone who doesn't believe this segment of Blacks are among America's largest and most virulent group of racists, needs only spend a few minutes reading their hate-speech.

Judging by the content of their character, Dr. King is weeping to think how they've turned his "I have a Dream" speech into such a sick nightmare.

So you want to discuss Blacks getting killed by Whites? First, when are you shutting down the Killing Fields of endless Blacks killing Blacks in DC, Chicago, NYC, Detroit, LA, Miami, Atlanta, Boston, East St. Louis . . . ? Oh, can't bring peace to your own neighborhoods?

Or how about even coming out with rallies against "Polar Bear Hunting" - the Black Racist event that you (I'm speaking to Eric Holder in particular) can't seem to admit is Black Racism at its most despicable and violent?

Or how about shutting down the 70% illegitimacy rate of Blacks? Or the fact that more Black babies are aborted than born in NYC?

Care to opine on why Black children graduate from high school and can't read or write cursive? Or tell time on an analog clock - even though they are taught by Blacks - or are we supposed to believe in your Black Racist insanity that the remaining White teachers undo the teaching of the Black teachers?

Maybe you can bounce around some thoughts about why Blacks allow gangsta rappers to be role models - with their misogyny, drug addictions, relentless violence, irresponsible sex lives, and bling-based evaluation of personal worth?

When will you admit that your Black Racism is a scam to excuse the Black community's Death Spiral at the hands of your fellow Black Racists?

How about some discourse on the way Blacks sold Blacks to Arabs - to this very day? Tell us about your rallies to shut down the present-day African slave trade.

And don't forget that after thousands of years of slavery by Blacks - as well as every other race on Earth - that it was Whites who outlawed - and enforced - the criminalization of slavery - which is still practiced by African Blacks.

And who can be a really Black, Black Racist without forgetting all about the hundreds of thousands of Whites who died to free Blacks from slavery in America. Oh that's right - it's all the White's fault that slavery existed in America - despite the fact that the first slaveholder in America was Black - over a third of slaves were owned by Blacks - and the largest slaveholder at the time of the Civil War was Black.

Darn those Inconvenient Truths!

Frankly, you are a disgusting group of nothing better than a Black Ku Klux Klan. Those of us who got our heads wacked by the cops in the Freedom Marchs didn't do that so that the White Citizens' Council could be replaced with the Black Racist Hate-Speech Club. (By the way, Al - Eric - Oprah - Jerimiah - Michelle - Barack, care to share how many marches you got beat up in to win these freedoms from apartheid?)

I expect to read about how being White I have no place commenting about anything to do with the Black community - it's a Black thing and all that Black Racist trash.

OK, so shut up about Whites. You're not White so you are as equally incapable of discussing White culture as Whites are incapable of discussing Black culture. Let's see how your total lack of integrity sits with your Black Racist standards being applied to your own Black Racist hate-speech.

I for one, will be no more intimidated by a bunch of Black Racist bullies than I was of the White racists. You are big-mouthed cowards who don't have the sense to come in out of the rain.

If Oprah is correct, and racism will only die when the racists die - I look forward to your demise very soon. Hades will have new fuel for the fire, and the Earth will be a safer, cleaner, more loving place without you.

Excellent post Mars. But allow me to add the delusional, self-hating whites that support this madness. They sit at the heart of this nightmare.

Yes, the unconscious "bleeding-heart" liberals drenched in white guilt.  They enable not only Black Racism, but the Muslim Fundamentalist Caliphate coming to a country near you.

B190769Sonny's picture

Hmmm.  Interesting.  % of children born out of wedlock.  41% to whites.  72% to blacks.  Why aren't Jesse and Al talkling about that stat?   Fatherless children are more prone to crime, suicide and poverty.  Simply put, the black population of this country has not made much progress in 50 yeears but they still cling to the oratory skills of failed leaders.  Why?     

The problem is the actual solution.   What needs to be done to remedy the current malady?  Whatever it is...it needs grassroots.  Washington is incompetent and fearful.   States are afraid to take the lead.   Local endeavors are the only option.   The country is being ripped apart and leadership along with an admission of failure by both (Whites and Blacks) must begin quickly.  But....what?   Does it begin at Churches?  With Schools?  With a national organization?       

theeseer's picture

Mars you nailed it. I posted similar here and elsewhere. The problem is polarization no matter what your "Street Cred History" is you are whilte and there is only far left Blacks and Ultra right wing Whites these days. Those that stand with you in the intelligent middle have no representation and thats how the politicians and special interest groups want it. The fact that its tearing up whats left of the American Dream is irrelevant. Right wing: "We want cheap labor, high stock prices, low savings prices and build wealth for the 1% (me). Left and Black leaders: Political power for the Black underclass and other non English speaking minorities so I can get the money and the power". The real MINORITY is the shrinking middle class with a sense of fairness and an ability to obey the law, raise a family and tolerate more than one point of view. Thats right, the America I remember growing up.

TheReplacement's picture

What would be wrong with letting them have the political change they want - let them govern and police themselves.  It might go south or they might put things together.  That is the American way.

Walls of bodyarmored police with armored vehichles and automatic weapons is not the American way.

>> Hoodlums in Ferguson want nothing more than a flat screen TV

You sluped down all the propaganda just like the good little boy you've been trained to be.  Same happed with OWS.  Same with Bundy. 

Practicing your first amendment rights should be supported by every citizen, just like second amendment rights.  Cheering on the loss of rights by some other group is voluntarily giving up your own rights.  You may have an innate dislike of these people but cheering on their loss of rights only hurts you.

El Vaquero's picture

Even if the people in Ferguson are wrong, the same tactics and equipment can be used against you and I.  I'll take some rioting and looting if that's what comes with liberty. Even if they are wrong, it might be good if it puts a little fear of abusing the people into the growing police state.

dontgoforit's picture

If it was your business that had been destroyed where do think that would leave you?  Many of these people will never recover from this looting spree.  Justice?  I don't think so.

El Vaquero's picture

If it were my business, I wouldn't be a pussy, and I would understand that cops have ZERO legal obligation to protect me or mine and I'd defend it myself.  You, my friend, would trade liberty for security.  You'll always get short changed in that trade.

dontgoforit's picture

Meaning you would stay in your business 24/7 and wait to kill the first one through the window?  That's a good plan.  You say I would trade my liberty for security.  I say, you don't know me anymore than I know you, but I won't trade my freedom; however, I will obey a cop with a gun.  We can work out the details later if there be details to work out. 

El Vaquero's picture

And in case you think the cops in Ferguson are interested in "justice," this happened to reporters, not looters or rioters, but reporters last night:

 

http://libertyviral.com/watch-officer-in-ferguson-point-a-rifle-and-thre...

dontgoforit's picture

They are interested in justice, El V.  This confrontation doesn't mean there is no desire for justice.  The cop was scared.  You would be too.  In that kind of moving mob you can't tell the good guys from the bad guys; the agitators from the guy who's going to bust your head with a bottle.  I am a little surprised at the disjointed way the cops were walking down the street.  Not a good way to handle crowd control.  And, we don't know what may have happened right before this clip, do we?  He may have just been hit in the back by a brick.  In any event, those guys were taunting the cop in the worst possible way at the worst possible time - hoping perhaps that he would break loose and cap somebody.  Then they would have some really 'hot' news coverage they could sell to the networks.  There's a lot more to this shit than you see El V.  Not all of it is that the authorities are civilian killers or sadists as you seem to think.  If there were no civil authorities life anywhere on this planet would be near impossible due to the mob mentality.  It would be hell on earth.  And all this because one big-ass, high MF'er pushed a shop keep around and stole a box of cigars....go figure.

El Vaquero's picture

I've been in that kind of moving mob.  Well, actually not that kind, because there were more reporters than thugs in that one.  So, tell me, was I scared?

dontgoforit's picture

How can I tell you if you were scared?  I'm guessing you weren't.  I'm guessing you are never scared, of anything.  You are a self-sufficient, knuckle-brusing, take-care-of-business kind of guy.  I like you, in principle.  We just seem to have a difference of opinion on this one.  I favor law and order; I just don't favor disorderly law, like what we have in D.C. right now.  My 64 years have taught me that whenever D.C. is weak, or severely corrupted - as it appears to be currently - then the house begins to fall apart.  I believe the general malaise we are suffering from right now, from a totally rigged stock market and a Federal Reserve Bank gone bonkers, to a racist, ideologue POTUS to a totally disasterous State Department and DOJ, has affected American life across a wide spectrum and Ferguson is just a boil that popped due to this general malise.  I've seen this film before.  Things will change for awhile once they go ballistic and then calm will prevail until the next time.  Isn't this the nature of humanity?  Same old shit over and over. 

Oh, and 'yes' if I were that cop, I would be scared.  I'd be scared I'd shoot the wrong MF'er or a whole handful of bad MF'ers and then be in a heap of shit just because they wouldn't clear the street and go home.

You can't argue with a statist, and this one seems to beLIEve that we must all bow to idiots in costumes with a badge. SMH, not this Gulf War Combat Vet, I will ONLY Respect those that earn my respect and our police lost that a long time ago.

dontgoforit's picture

How quick to call a name: 'statist.'  Do you even know what it means? 

When a man with a gun tells you to do something, you purposefully don't do it because you're not a statist?  I'm a vet too - so are millions of others.

I respect the law - not necessarily the person in front of the law.  Anarchists are the people who haven't figured out they need other people in order to thrive.  Is that you?

Thank you dontgoforit :)

I'm amazed at how often I'm reminded that people are both very much the same and very much different.

Government, in whatever form, is the result of how people agree to live together.

Even in very small groups, someone will take the lead.

What you are saying is a lie. There is more than one recording showing the boy was shot from distance. Six shots two to the head, come now, even you aren't that stupid or you are a troll for enforcement.

knightowl77's picture

Both sides admit that there was an altercation in and around the police car. There was a struggle for the cop's gun and it discharged....Brown and his buddy ran off a bit before the officer yelled at them to "freeze" and fired....

There are 2 witnesses on a cellphone vid saying that the guy charged the police and the cop was shooting, but must have missed because he kept coming....

 

I am not saying that there are no racist cops, or those who don't shoot first..There are plenty.

What I am saying is that we do not yet know all the facts or even half the facts. 

The timing and the specifics of who did what & when will have to be tried in court of law... From what we know now, there is a reasonable doubt as to who is at fault...

I do not yet know the facts, but I'll be damned if I ever agree with something Al Sharpton says without proof positive...fckn POS

This is what Moscow and Tehran had to say:

On Monday, Khamenei tweeted “The day when American nation realize their socioeconomic problems stem from domination of #Israel over their govt, what’ll happen?”, and he has not been afraid to embrace the hashtag culture, using #Ferguson in several tweets over the past few days. Later that day he also tweeted “Once Americans realize you’ve sacrificed their interests for #Israel to stay in power a few more days, what’ll they do 2u?” indicating that Israeli influence in Washington may be leading US domestic policy astray.

Moscow says harassment of journalists in Missouri points to US double standards

"We are again dealing with Washington's human rights 'double standards' when we keep hearing [US] vociferous calls for all countries and nations on the necessity to ensure freedoms of speech, expression and media," Konstantin Dolgov, the ministry's human rights commissioner, said accusing the US authorities of the ill-treatment of American journalists.

Gaza Ceasefire Collapses: What Did You Expect? Israel glorifies its own murderers

Israelis honored the terrorists who killed 92 people in the 1948 King David HoTo cite just one example of many, in July 2006 a plaque was unveiled in Jerusalem's King David Hotel honoring the men of the Irgun terrorist group who bombed the hotel in 1948, killing 92 people. In response, the British ambassador to Israel issued a statement declaring, "We do not think that it is right for an act of terrorism, which led to the loss of many lives, to be commemorated." Among those attending the ceremony honoring the mass murderers was Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
