Post-Ferguson murder and mayhem: US descending into mobocracy?

These United States of America are a Constitutional Republic based upon the rule of law and the consent of the governed. It is a place where the governed have their voices heard by way of a representative democracy. However, based on the recent events over the past week resulting from the grand jury verdict in Ferguson, Missouri perhaps the rule of law means little — that we are no longer operating under an established system of judicial process.

If the death of 20-year-old DeAndre Joshua, shot in the front seat of his car in Ferguson, is found to be retribution because he provided witness testimony in the case against Michael Brown, our society is in grave danger.

We are now being held hostage to the definition of social justice as interpreted by a few who have eschewed democracy, with the help of leftist community organizers who now instill fear, intimidation, coercion, and threat by way of mobocracy.

It was supposed to be the opening of the Christmas season for shoppers, known as “Black Friday” — I guess that’s not racist — but there were those who had another objective. As reported by the UK Daily Mail, “Ferguson protesters have clashed with police across the US after taking to the streets and occupying malls in a day of demonstrations over the shooting of unarmed teen Michael Brown.”

“Hundreds of people interrupted holiday shopping at major retailers around the country to protest a grand jury’s decision not to indict the officer who fatally shot the 18-year-old protesters dubbed the day ‘Brown Friday’ or ‘Blackout Black Friday’. In San Francisco crowds used hammers to smash the windows of stores in the city’s touristy Union Square. Demonstrators temporarily shut down three large malls in suburban St. Louis on one of the busiest shopping days of the year and then marched in front of the Ferguson police department. The action prompted authorities to close the mall for about an hour Friday afternoon, while a similar protest of about 50 people had the same effect at West County Mall in nearby Des Peres. Even in Seattle at the Westlake Center a Christmas tree lighting ceremony was disrupted by more of these organized mobs.”

One has to wonder, what is there to gain for the so-called “cause” at this point? And what do parents say to their kids when they’re exposed to loud, raucous, and sometimes masked demonstrators?

Do they tell their kids these people are protesting because a 6’4″ 300-pound individual decided to rob a store, attack a store owner, attack a police officer, and was shot as he attempted to take a law enforcement officer’s weapon and then charged him?

Do they tell their children who witnessed this display of mob violence that these are people who don’t believe individuals are responsible for their actions — and that actions have consequences?

Do parents explain to their children that these people who don’t believe in the rule of law and our system of justice — just their demands and hypocritical perverted definition of social justice?

I suppose these mobs would have preferred that Michael Brown had successfully acquired Officer Darren Wilson’s sidearm and shot him. This is the same Officer Wilson who had just answered a call to help a little girl — yet Michael Brown’s mother insists that Wilson set out that day to shoot someone — not to mention the incendiary words of Brown’s step-dad inspiring the mob to “Burn this [email protected] down.”

Yes, that is a respectable adult example, which others should follow — demonstrably impeccable parenting skills. Perhaps the same stepdad should have spent more time imparting lessons of respect and regard for authority — or maybe even worked with Michael to seek out better opportunities for his life.

Shelby Steele’s book White Guilt and Jason Riley’s Please Stop Helping Us are applicable to the situation in Ferguson — white progressive socialists taking up the “cause” of the poor victimized young black man. However, where are all these voices, the mobs and the media when nearly 320 young black men have been killed this year in Chicago by other young black men — an epidemic spreading throughout black communities all over the country? Nah, that doesn’t fit the political narrative.

Just look at these pictures and ask yourself, is this just another example of Rahm Emanuel’s famous maxim of “never let a good crisis go to waste?” What does a Christmas tree lighting in Seattle have to do with Ferguson, Missouri — a place where most of these elitist progressive socialists have never visited?

Yes, most of these white progressives would never venture into the black community, and if so, why haven’t they gone to Chicago? And why aren’t they advocating for better educational opportunities in these communities — school choice, vouchers, charter schools, and home schooling?

Nope, ain’t happening, because the other mob — the teachers unions — will not have any of that! Why aren’t these progressive socialists going into the black communities and volunteering their time as mentors to young black men and women — teaching them about self-esteem, helping them with grades, and ending the insidious practice of giving checks to young women for having children out of wedlock — keeping black men out of the homes?

Nope, that dawg don’t hunt! It’s easier to demonstrate a false sense of caring by staging “die ins” in malls and scaring shoppers and children wanting to just enjoy the day after Thanksgiving — or a Christmas tree lighting.

And please, spare me the denigrating invectives because I grew up in the inner city with two great black parents who refused to allow me to be a part of the liberal progressive socialist economic dependency plantation.

And my wife Angela and I don’t need your definition of social justice as we are raising and explaining to our daughters what the rule of law means and ensuring that no one can withhold opportunities from them because the greatest assets and weapons are their competence and character.

I find this mob rule disgusting. I find this hijacking of the tragic death of Michael Brown inexplicably wrong. I find this mobocracy a threat to our way of life and the existence of our Republic. I find the actions of these progressive socialists deplorable and racist in itself — just another example of the “soft bigotry of low expectations.”

Really Colonel, you find it inexplicable? You are being facetious correct? This is the absolutely foreseeable and expected result that the leftist media has been working so hard to cause.

Have you ever read Emile Durkheim? We are seeing his theory of Anomie ( a condition in which society provides little moral guidance to individuals) brought to fruition. I would suggest that this is intentional. Anomie is the breakdown of moral bonds between an individual and the community. When it happens, it can certainly foster more and more centralized government control.

Let’s see, a Bosnian man in St Louis was beaten to death with hammers by three black thugs and a Hispanic thug over the weekend, but I haven’t heard anything about the Bosnian community burning down the Quik Trip on the corner in retaliation. Will the Bosnian-Americans get a pass when they riot over this gross injustice? The murdered man’s only crime was “Driving while white” and stopping for a red light. He was beaten to death in front of his wife. And, as usual, the local media was reluctant to report the race of the thugs. They were described… Read more »

Col. West, I agree 100% that this is WRONG; however, I do not believe that it is inexplicable. The Democrat Party had made the choice to import millions of illegal aliens of one Hispanic derivation or other to give the party an unassailable voting advantage (legal or illegal). A growing number in the black American community realized that this was a sign that the democrats were using them (for the past 50+ years) AND intended to continue using them. The polls have started to show that. The Democrat Party answer, to get the black community back in line, as to… Read more »

I wonder what they where expecting. Forget about the dead 18 year old and move on with our shopping?

Is this the kind of crap you teach your kid? Do you tell him about all the black on black crime that these same riotous apes ignore 24/7/365? How about the black on white crime? Spare me the faux outrage Ruffy. Had the pig not charged cop, he wouldn’t have been dead in the streets.

and how many business were destroyed or looted?Its funny how you picked just the white people in those crowds to show. Lets not forget the L.A. riots.all those innocent misunderstood black people,huh?

Lol, so now you’d justify white rioting by claiming lower property damage figures? It’s okay so long as fewer businesses were destroyed than in predominately black riots? Please. It’s not a contest

Lol, “sporting event rallies that got out of hand” – there is spin for everything. That’s fine, you don’t have the rocks to call it what it is, probably because they are banging against each other while you continue shaking your head. Clearly no race is above the idiocy of rioting.

answer the question and quit sidestepping.When was the last time a rioting crowd of white people burned,stole,destroyed businesses,& committed acts of violence against blacks? Take your little white guilt liberal butt somewhere else and try and sell the crap you are selling.

Sidestepping…another lol. Don’t flatter yourself.

I didn’t say there is any good reason to riot.you are the one justifying the outright criminal behaviour of these thugs by pointing out your so-called examples of how white people do it too.okay,forget the term sidestepping and just answer a direct question.When was the last time a group of white people burned down a town,stole property that did not belong to them,And committed acts of physical violence?

Wrong, I didn’t justify any such thing. Quote it if you think you got it.

I don’t know the answer to your question. Regardless of what that answer is, it has nothing to do with my point: all races riot, and it’s idiotic regardless of reason. I haven’t written anything regarding what I think of the grand jury & evidence in the case.

To me, all the protesters are justifying violence against Law enforcement.
Had Brown not put his hands on the officer he would still be alive. He was in control of his destiny all the up until that point.
Why so many think Brown’s actions are justified is telling of just how far our society has descended. This issue isn’t racial or political, it had to do with truth and what is right.

They don’t think Brown’s actions are justified they think they are made up.

This is what I don’t get. There ARE examples every day of injustices based on race every day in America. Why do Black leaders (some who stood alongside of Martin Luther King Jr) cling to cases like Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin? Why do they choose drug dealers, thieves, and thugs for their poster children? I also don’t understand why popular Black culture glamorizes the “thug life”.

Actually the “saggin” pant originated in prison. It is a sign that they were available for sex.

the first thing they do in prison is take the belts because they don’t want people hanging themselves with them. after years and years cons get used to no having anything restricting around their waist. when they get out they didn’t like the feeling of a belt. those who went back to the gangs and thug life were the heros because they had done time. gang bangers looked up to them and emulated their heros and started letting their pants sag as well. “available for sex” I’ve heard quite a bit.

Are you an ex-convict? My information comes from the prison system. All the jail/ prison inmates that I have transported in my career were dressed in jail issued clothes that had and elastic waist band.
I did not say that the “thugs” that are on the streets were sending the same signal. I stated that it was a ” signal” in prison. Maybe if they knew all the facts they would not be walking around with their a*s hanging out.
