I have to wonder if the National Government in Washington actually likes these violent eruptions like we’re seeing in Ferguson, MO
Now based on what I’ve read so far, it appears the local cops started this by unnecessarily killing an unarmed black teenager who they were harassing for the non-crime of jaywalking. They then escalated the situation by responding to protests with taunts and military style tactics:
But here’s why I think the Feds are partially to blame for this and similar situations:
Ferguson was a white suburb 20 years ago. Now it’s a black suburb. Why? These rapid white to black demographic shifts tend to happen because of Section 8 housing. A big city like St. Louis will tear down one of their run-down, crime-ridden housing projects leaving a bunch of poor blacks homeless. The Feds give them Section 8 housing vouchers, and then entice realtors to build a bunch of low-income housing where they further subsidize the rent. It’s usually cheaper to build these cheap apartments out in the Suburbs than in a big city where property is generally more expensive. So these newly homeless blacks find new homes in a previously white suburb.
White people generally don’t like to live among a large black population. Whether you think this is some terrible evil or just a natural human desire to live among your own kind is irrelevant. It’s a fact. So a large percentage of the white people leave town until it becomes majority black. However, some white people stay, and these are usually the ones who have the most to lose by leaving, i.e. the ones who control the local government. So now you have a white government with a white police force in charge of a majority black town. Kind of like a small scale 1980s South Africa. This is a recipe for disaster. It likely wouldn’t happen without Uncle Sam.
The other reason the Feds share some blame in this is their policy of arming local police departments like they’re waging war in Fallujah.
Washington has also been employing millions of young men in their terror war for the last 13 years. Upon returning to civilian life, these people realize they aren’t qualified for any productive job that pays a decent salary, so they become cops.
So now you’ve got a bunch of local white cops patrolling a black town, armed better than the marines were a generation ago, many of whom actually were marines involved in occupying Iraq earlier this century. What could possibly go wrong?
As I said at the beginning of this post, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Feds like these types of events. There are already calls for the “Justice” Department to come to the rescue and clean up the local government’s mess. Believe it or not, among some idiots Eric Holder might actually come off as a hero in all this. And in general, civil unrest justifies the whole Department of Homeland Security’s very existence.
God Bless America.
