"Start Throwing Rocks": Washington Post Op-Ed Calls For More Violence In The Streets

Authored by Daniel Lang via SHTFplan.com,

It’s not an exaggeration to say that battle lines are being drawn in America today. You can see it in the news everyday. As time goes on, people in this country are becoming very tribal, as Americans of different races, religions, and political persuasions turn on each other. What we saw in Charlottesville last weekend was just the latest sign that America is turning into a very dark place, where conflict between different demographics is the norm. And it probably won’t be the last indicator to emerge.

So how did we get to this place? How did we reach a point where America resembles Wiemar Germany, with white nationalists and socialist thugs battling it out on the streets and killing people?

If I were to pick one culprit for this mess, it would be the mainstream media. They’re the ones who have, for the most part, stood behind leftist ideologues for decades, and allowed them to bury public discourse under a wave of identity politics. They are at the very least, partly to blame. They’ve helped stoke divisions in this country that were once faint, or in the process of healing.

And if you don’t think the mainstream media is responsible for nudging our country towards war in the streets, then you should read this op-ed that was recently published by the Washington Post. It was written by N.D.B. Collins, an associate professor at Johns Hopkins University. In it, he appears to shamelessly call for the left to spawn more riots and violence in this country.

The white nationalist riot in Charlottesville, a city that boasts “diversity makes us stronger,” made a lot of things clear. One of them is that generic solutions to the racial problem — bland affirmations of inclusiveness, tolerance and “free speech” — will no longer work. Indeed, they have never worked, at least not on their own. …

 

[I]n April 1968, amid a flurry of other “rocks,” riots shook American cities following the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. It took that rolling unrest, not the promise of further economic growth, to spur President Lyndon Johnson and Congress to action. Within a week they had passed the Fair Housing Act.

 

Over the past century, liberalism, vexed by an ever-sharp, ever-cutting white supremacy, has needed these rocks. …

 

Segregationists have again assumed their pedestals in the Justice Department, the White House and many other American temples. Paper alone won’t drive them out. Start throwing rocks.

Let that sink in. At a time when our country has never been so divided, and the proverbial smoke is still clearing from a deadly riot in Virginia, one of the most widely recognized news sources decides to post an article that calls for more rioting.

It looks an awful lot like the media is trying to foment a war on American soil. What other conclusion can you draw from this very public call to violence? They had to have vetted this piece and understood its meaning and intent, before unleashing it on the world. They have to know the consequences of that, and if they know those consequences, then we can infer their goals.

The mainstream media has just shown us all its true colors. They’ve finally revealed what many of us suspected for a long time. They appear to be trying to convince Americans that it’s okay to hurt, and possibly kill each other for political reasons.

It looks like the cops have chosen and the military has been groomed to choose the left for at least 10 years. Why else would they need to remake the military culture over to full on libtard? I wouldnt plan on the military standing w/ the dissenting citizens here the way they did at the fall of the U.S.S.R. Those men were not indoctrinated into the insane ideologies of the globalists. The military will be protecting the interests of the globalist liberals from the dissenters being expected to pay the bill for the destruction of the American and Western in general historical cultures.

So how did we get to this place? How did we reach a point where America resembles Wiemar Germany, with white nationalists and socialist thugs battling it out on the streets and killing people? How?  Democrat shitheads who cannot accept that they lost power because they lost a legitimate election. Before this is over we're going to have a kill a LOT of people that just don't want to play by civilized rules.

152 years later and Fed.gov is still scared of Bobby E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson- and the implications of limited, decentralized Federal control!!!

THE reason for all the monuments to the War is to remind people of that history. Those unaware of their history are bound to repeat it.

The forces desiring war with Russia...war with Syria..war with the Ukraine..war with Iran...war with China etc etc are relentless. If they don't get their war over there, well by God, they're bound and determined to have a punitive war here for our having refused their bidding.

Hoepfully we are all bigger and smarter than that

Yes, the monuments are reminders.But a lot of them, particularly those on the battlefields, were put up by soldiers - both Union and CSA - in their later years, to memorialize and honor their fallen friends from their regiments.There are 96 of them at Antietam (Sharpsburg to southerners) alone:http://www.americanantiquities.com/fall%20winter%202016/antietam-battle… be willing to bet the large majority of the Charlottesville protestors have never walked a Civil War battlefield.  If you yourself haven't, try it some time.  Go alone, on a weekday, perhaps a gray, fall afternoon, leave your cell phone in the car....

Yeh, let's just start killing our own people because a few shit heads didn't get their way or are afraid of not retaining a failing and incompetent socialist hedgemony. Let's keep confusing it about race and intolerance...like the Dems and their task masters have done for many decades, every year just before an election with a scam-bootle of identity politics. They don't and won't get it...that a great majority of our people aren't that stupid anymore and see right through their bullshit. They and their play-for-pay, media goons don't get it...won't get it, and are desperate for anybody and everybody to leap over a cliff of doom with them, into a bottomless pit of deceptive and ongoing Fed-Scam slavery meant to span every part of the Globe.

faction 1: Federalists, globalists, corporations, financial elite, minority-activists, deep state, media, neo-cons, senate, congress (with the exception of Ron and Rand Paul)faction 2: We, the people, anti-federalists, pro liberty, the unorganised majority constantly being ass-raped by a bunch of 0.1 %ers from faction 1.Looks like the fight has started but not all of faction 2 are onboard. Also, faction 2 needs more organisation and some kind of leadership wouldn't hurt either.

"Start Throwing Rocks": Washington Post Op-Ed Calls For More Violence In The StreetsMy response: Excuse me ... Isn't this an act of DOMESTIC TERRORISM that encourages others to do harm???DOJ, how is this NOT A CRIME OF DOMESTIC TERRORISM?=====In a society where all lies, all deceptions, all corruptions are accepted, that society will lose control of everything. Chaos will begin to take over, and the only way that chaos will be slowed down will be when dictatorial control, or maybe even a police state is formed, where thought and behavior is fixed, and anybody out of bounds is punished. Eventually, the chaos has to be controlled. We’re not headed toward socialism; we could very well be headed toward a dictatorship in our world. Is this hard to grasp?
