“Police Accused MSNBC of ‘Endangering Lives’ in Ferguson”

Why does the po-po hate the freedom of the press to inflame an already tense situation, drive a local story national without having any facts to work with, then turn it into a bit of overdramatic, narcissistic, self-interested naval gazing? I mean, why does The Man want to stop the kinds of race wars that make for such good 24/7 TV?

It started when the pigs demonized Manson and his family and turned them into criminals rather than asking what root causes led to such behaviors. Like, Eisenhower’s chickens coming home to roost! Because let’s face it, Helter Skelter — Manson’s desire to start these precise kinds of race wars — would have made for awesome ratings! And who can get enough of a dead former beauty queen?

Thankfully, Sharpton is down there to make sure the piggy piggy piggies don’t quell a nice racial wilding. For freedom! And free TVs!

  1. Could be MSNBC has taken one too many rocks to the head, and should go onto the Concussion DL for a year or two, or until such time as its collective brain clears.

  2. Two men were shot during the chaos of demonstrations late Monday and early today near West Florissant and Canfield, police confirmed. Officers weren’t involved in the shootings. There was no immediate information on the identities or conditions of the victims.

    Police also confirmed that 31 people were arrested, including some who had come from as far as New York and California.
    “Our officers came under heavy fire,” said Johnson. He stressed that “not a single bullet was fired by officers.”
    Later, police fired tear gas at protesters who defied orders to disperse. Police fired at least three tear gas volleys near the QuikTrip as emergency vehicles sped to the scene. Police also used tear gas to break up protesters near West Florissant Avenue and Northwoods Estates.

    “They’re gassing our kids,” one protester shouted.

    In front of McDonald’s, a tactical unit removed a driver from his car at gunpoint. Some protesters tipped over portable toilets and dragged them into the streets.

    So Ferguson is going to shit, figuratively, literally*, and actually.

  3. MSNBC, they have their lights on to expose the TRUTH!!!:

    There’s a U.S. ‘War on Black Boys,’ Could Turn ‘Genocide’ if We Don’t Stop It

  4. The Tweet Rush just referenced.

  5. I’m just sayin’, these people are gonna solve the murders of blondie Nicole Brown Simpson and jewboy Ronald Goldman once and for all.

    Plus, notice the Brown there? oh, tie-ins galore

    this Wilson cat better watch his back, ’cause he’s about to be nominated a suspect

  6. MSNBC’s Chris Hayes found out how friendly the Ferguson social justice warriors are …


  7. I dunno what Craig Melvin can do to help Hayes, but I’m pretty sure Bob Melvin could usefully instruct him about how to take rocks to the head.

  8. Many others — it is hard to quantify the percentage — have arrived by bus and by car from Chicago, Detroit, Brooklyn and elsewhere.

    They will not give their names. But their leaders say they are ready to fight, some with guns in their hands. “This is not the time for no peace,” said one man, a 27-year-old who made the trip here from Chicago.

    He spoke after a small group of fellow militants held a meeting behind a looted store, sketching out ambitions for the days ahead.

    “We are jobless men, and this is our job now — getting justice,” he said. “If that means violence, that’s okay by me. They’ve been doing this to us for years.”

    Police on the streets Monday night said some of those wearing red bandannas are members of the Bloods gang.
    “People have been tweeting, ‘We are ready to die tonight,’?” said Mary Pat Hector, a national youth organizer with the Rev. Al Sharpton’s national action network. “It is a trending topic.”

    Hector traveled from Atlanta, hoping her presence as a non­violent protester would help counter what she described as “so much negative energy.”

    Then there are the looters, leaderless men who under cover of nightly political protest target liquor stores, beauty-supply shops and other businesses with inventories easy to sell and in high demand.

    Ferguson police officials would not quantify how many looters have been arrested since the Brown shooting but presented a Washington Post reporter with a stack of roughly 50 arrest reports. While some of those arrested for stealing are from Ferguson, a large number have addresses listed in Illinois or in Texas.

    “It’s like looting tourism,” an officer commented as he showed the reports. He asked not to be named. “It’s like they are spending their gas money to come down here and steal.”
    Among those who have arrived are self-described young activists, some of whom participated in the Occupy movement. Many of them are white and have been showing protesters how to assemble homemade gas masks — essentially surgical masks fortified with duct tape. But the peaceful protesters acknowledge they are probably in the minority as the crowd begins to swell on Ferguson’s streets after nightfall.

    Dennis Brown, a community activist, described St. Louis and suburbs such as this one as a pot ready to boil over. He said social media has become, in ways similar to its use in recent popular uprisings in the Arab world, an essential organizing tool.

    Brown said young people, including many of the “militants,” are organized on social media.

    “These young people aren’t dumb,” said Brown, 46. “They are organized. They are smart. They are like computer kings.”

    He said that not all are from outside communities. Some are from Ferguson and have been informed by media, cinema and real-life events that to many of them resemble their own lives.

    “They are not gang leaders. They are normal people. They are people showing their anger,” Brown said. “They see Trayvon Martin. They saw ‘Fruitvale Station.’ And before that, there was Rodney King. And those cops walk.”

    “There’s always a time in history when great things happen to strike at the core of people,” he continued. “These young people are saying enough is enough.”

  9. Supplies of beauty would be in very high demand, bein’ as these have so much to beautify for.

  10. The “Crumping” up of evidence, as in Sanford, comes to Ferguson. Now Holder can just move the line a bit further with his own autopsy.

  11. The Communists come to MO, while CAIR holds support rally in CT.

  12. Stan Brakhage: The Act of Seeing With One’s Own Eyes [requires a sign-in for age confirmation]

    There’s a clumsy name the left has for this maneuver they use here. It’s called “problematization”.

    The question is this, and always this with the contemporary political left — Chaos. Cui bono?

  13. I look forward to hearing the Stazi’s take on things from Herr Holder tomorrow.

  14. This Gov. Nixon needs to be put down like a rabid dog is put down, politico-metaphorically, of course. But dead as dead can be in that politico-metaphorical sense. The man is worse than a menace.

  15. So long as none of the protesters pop off a round at the National Guard, I don’t think they have anything to worry about.

    Maybe MSNBC could hand out firecrackers?

  16. J. Christian Adams (joined by Megyn Kelly editorially) holds forth on the nasty, subversive premises of the Holder DoJ and Mo. Gov. Nixon.

    These scum should be rounded up politico-metaphorically and shot, careers ended.

  17. Even TPM is saying the Gov. is way out of line.

  18. Nixon and Holder have taken the fundamental rights of anyone accused of wrongdoing out into broad daylight and executed them.

  19. Query: Does the state of Missouri have a stand your ground provision for citizens accused of killing in self-defense?

  20. No, seriously, a Governor who publicly advocates the trampling of the rights of potential criminal defendants commits the very definition of political “high crimes and misdemeanors” warranting immediate removal by impeachment.

  21. Oh gee, Josh Marshall thinks it “looks very bad”. How nice.

    How about looks like everything we detest? How about looks like tyranny? How about looks like the violation of everything our system of justice holds fundamental?

    Fuck these fucking mewling partisan pukes.

  22. Missouri is not a “Stand your ground” State, at least as of the 2013 printing of Andrew Branca’s book of “The Law of Self defense.”
