We’ve all seen the scenes from Ferguson by now. Stuff burning. Cops who look like storm troopers from the future with APC’s and every kind of weapon. I hear all the time on talk radio and the news the same old stale refrain, “is this America” “what happened to peaceful protests”? “I’m all for people’s right to protest but it has to be peaceful” and on and on. I just laugh at how the conversation is so predictable and fully controllable by the status QUO.
I see something very different when I see Ferguson. I talked about it in my news section briefly. I don’t honestly care what happened in Ferguson with the cop, because it doesn’t matter. Cops kill people all the time. Cops harass people all the time. The people ASK for more government not knowing that government is nothing but a gun pointed at you and the power crazy people in government are more than happy to give you all you can handle bro.
The reason you have to limit the government is because government is a CORRUPT institution by nature. It is there to do one thing. Coerce the people. USE LEGAL FORCE without any retribution,… to steal from you. It really doesn’t do much of anything else. This is 95% or more of what government does. I have showed you this. This is what my entire site is about.
I want to use the backdrop of Ferguson to show people the laughable hypocrisy that is how “peaceful protest” is discussed in this country. We are told to be peaceful in our protests and to “work within the system”, but the government itself is not peaceful. It escalates the violence at EVERY protest. And it intimidates the people from going to protest. This is anathema to what we are told is the way the system is supposed to work. Here are some pics of typical crowd control police.
Look at them. Do they look peaceful? No, they are stirring up trouble by just showing up like that. Their very attire is THREATENING and intimidating. Especially when you KNOW that they can shoot you and you can’t do anything about it.
If PEACEFUL CIVILIANS showed up wearing this same gear driving APC’s and carrying signs what do you think would happen? My point is simple, JUST showing up like this to a peaceful protest is ESCALATING the situation. It is NOT peaceful. THE COPS ARE THE PROBLEM. It is provocative. It is OUTRAGEOUS. How does this not have a chilling effect on any peaceful protest? Are you willing to go to a protest when cops look like this? I am not.
If we set a private meeting out in the desert to conduct some business or to make an exchange that is dicey it is understood that we each show up with our own backup. Right? We expect that each will be equally armed. But if we are just conducting peaceful business and I show up and I am expecting the meeting to be just you and me without any backup or guns and you show up with a bunch of guys dressed like those cops what do I feel? What do I think? What can I surmise are YOUR intentions?
Yet people are supposed to accept without any question that the fuzz is ALLOWED to show up dressed like they want to kill you to a “peaceful demonstration”. Does that make sense to you?
We are always told that THEY WORK FOR US? Would you allow your employees to show up to a meeting like that? It is beyond provocative. IT SETS THE MOOD. It creates the tension. And before you say, “well they have to protect the property” etc. I wish you would just take a look at the real world. The police are not there to protect YOU, they are there to protect the system. Period. Take a look at Ferguson. Did they protect jack s*** in the private sector? No. They let it burn. They protected GOVERNMENT facilities.
So the government itself creates a lot of the problem with any demonstration. And I haven’t even gotten into the use of agent provocateurs and all the other stuff the government does covertly. My point is not that Ferguson was about any real redress, it probably wasn’t. My point is that the government INTIMIDATES and PROVOKES peaceful protesters.
The government is constantly showing force and using force against the people. That is all the government even is. Yet all you hear about is how peaceful the people are supposed to be. It is really funny to me. Beating people with batons. Gassing them. That’s all fine. FOR THE GOVERNMENT TO DO. But god forbid if the people don’t like the way they are treated by government agents and bite back. There is hell to pay. Do you see the hypocrisy?
We are told we must peacefully work within the system. But peaceful protests are “chilled” by the WAY the government has chosen to react to them. If peaceful protests don’t work. And we know they don’t. What is your option? Well, the people must turn to government of course. It is always the same. It is all the same. Government is just force against you. Nothing more. So go on your peaceful way and do as you are told.
Take care my brainwashed Brethren on this thanksgiving holiday in this Greatest free-est yada yada yada.
