I’m looking at all of the protesting going on around the nation concerning the Ferguson incident and my feelings are mixed. Primarily, I believe that it is a conversation which is desperately needed but better had at a later time, with killings that are more defined. The waters are too muddy in Ferguson for it to be a good example of what many people, including myself, hold to be a valid issue. Yes, discrimination is a big problem in law enforcement today, just as it has been in the past however, I believe there to be a more sinister threat in the midst.
Let me just say right now that in all honesty, I have never experienced abuse at the hands of the police that I can directly attribute to racism. Not ever, and I have been arrested more than a few times. There is not one single instance that I can recall where I was abused due to my ethnicity and is as honest a statement as I have ever made. This does not mean though, that I have never been abused based upon my race, I just didn’t perceive racism to be the cause. I do believe that there are racist cops however, I have experienced discrimination as part of a larger genocidal agenda rather than due to any personal bias’s on the part of the individual officers. In my personal experience, I have largely seen the divide between police and citizen as a consequence of power and control, not ethnicity. Quite the contrary, I have found most police officers who are not complete idiots (most are not), to be among those most attuned to the universality of human nature. Quite simply put, they see far too much to nurture stupid delusions about skin color comprising the core of a person. They have to cut through all of that bullshit to survive. Yes, racist cops do exist, I just haven’t seen much of it personally.
No, there is something far more sinister than just racism (if that at all) going on in Fersuson. More like a main course of totalitarian control with a fattening plate of genocide for desert. Just my personal thoughts on Ferguson anyway, not having any truthful reporting of the facts.
I have seen friends of a darker skin tone punished by police while I was allowed to go free, even though we were all together (I was innocent though, my friends were not). It is my opinion however, that profiling and racial provocation as meted out by law enforcement, are the tools of power mongers and Luciferian eugenicist cabals. Whether willing or unawares, police are more pawn than perpetrator. I will say however, that if they continue to play the fool, they will reap the whirlwind of public discontent, just as their masters have planned. Something akin to the “Night Of The Long Knives” but involving the citizenry. It may already be too late.
These things we see splattered across the news today are nothing more than preconditioning diversions designed to distract, while issues of real consequence proceed neither debated, nor detected. A good example would be the latest protest in Oakland where a plainclothes CHP officer pulled a gun on protesters without showing his badge first. Something that has been going on forever except that this time professional photogs were miraculously present to catch some of the most beautiful publicity shots the world has ever seen. Can anyone say “staged”? Fuel to the diversionary fire.
What this picture shows is more than likely, what they want you to see. Without any proof that the officers were engaging in any illegal activity such as inciting or vandalism, they technically maintain the moral high ground. If you were to ask me whether or not they should have been there in the first place, my answer would be a resounding no. Yes, there are arguments that the CHP officers were simply there to quell nefarious elements bent on destruction who had infiltrated an otherwise peaceful protest however, their presence has only exacerbated the divide. There are other reports on Twitter from those present that these two CHP officers were actually initiating the vandalism by breaking windows and encouraging violence. Agent Provocateurs.
This leads to the crux of my reasoning, protest should not punish the innocent. What good does it do to alienate otherwise unbiased people from your viewpoint? Shutting down freeways, disrupting lawfully operating businesses and destroying the property of those who have little power to change things is just stupid. I can just imagine that the real bad guys behind the scenes are laughing their heads off when first they provoke and then watch the targets self-destruct. History has shown us that any popular movement is subject to infiltration and subversion, counter-intelligence if you will. Without acknowledging this well known fact and compensating for it, you just play into the hands of the enemy.
If you want people to see your point of view as worthy of consideration, you shouldn’t punish them. Find methods of protesting that are beneficial to society and educate folks about why the particular policy or practice is bad for them too. If you yourself become the thing that is bad for the people, then you defeat yourself. Punishment is the purview of Justice, not protest. You protest in order to receive Justice. Protest should be about education and incentive for the common good, or minority few as the case may be, but never on the whole destructive. Violence should be a last resort, reserved for self defense only.
I’m afraid that while Furgeson in and of itself may be a conversation worth having, it is much more of a diversion which serves both the current and future interests of the establishment. After Ferguson, military style intervention in civil protests becomes more justifiable. An opportunity for the political elite to discredit dissenters and draw attention away to a flawed issue, while continuing their true agenda unencumbered.
