Welcome to the new America. We are now a nation of double standards and justice for who? Apparently criminals. This past week, the top law enforcement officer in the country, Attorney General Eric Holder, revealed the findings of his DOJ report on Ferguson. The thorough report recounts the entire case, including all witness testimony with an outcome that exonerates PO Darren Wilson. (doj_report_on_shooting_of_michael_brown). Obviously not the outcome of his choice, Holder continues by saying he concurs with the findings, but then launches a denunciation regarding the racial bias within the Ferguson Police Dept.
” Of course, violence is never justified. But seen in this context – amid a highly toxic environment, defined by mistrust and resentment, stoked by years of bad feelings, and spurred by illegal and misguided practices – it is not difficult to imagine how a single tragic incident set off the city of Ferguson like a powder keg.”
What a way to calm and heal a community. In other remarks by Holder, he promises the dismantling of the Ferguson Police Dept, which makes it crystal clear because he didn’t get his way with a scathing report, he will pursue whatever means to destroy them. The federal government has a funny way of being a thorn in the side once they admittedly have it out for you.
Fast forward to Thursday March 12 2015. Protests in Ferguson continue even as several officials within the police department resign, including Fergusons Chief Tom Jackson. Despite the results of the DOJ report, and despite the resignations, protestors are not happy. It was only after the crowd of protestors dwindled down, that gunfire erupted. Two officers were shot and as of yet no arrests have been made.
The sound of crickets is deafening. Hmm, where are the groups that couldn’t get enough media coverage as they stirred things up? One of those groups that sought the spotlight? Muslims4Ferguson. Oh, that’s right, the “religion of peace” groups only speak out when black or brown lives matter.
One of the agitators that hailed to Ferguson from NY was Muslim activist Linda Sarsour. There is no outrage there, just a simple statement of how its not ok to shoot anyone, but she focused more on the resignation of the police chief, and once again proclaimed “#blacklivesmatter.
Obviously the Muslim community in America has two faces, including latching on to a crisis to meet one of their “religious” obligations. This weekend in the St. Louis area, CAIR ( Council on American Islamic Relations) is hosting a Combating Islamophobia: weekend Dawa workshop. Really? Two police officers are shot, six city officials have resigned, the County of St. Louis and the Missouri State Police have taken over security in the war torn area, protests escalate every night, the shooter is still at large and the Muslim terrorist organization CAIR thinks its appropriate to have an Islamophobia workshop? Yes of course they do. They see this ongoing crisis as the perfect opportunity to “revert” those disgruntled blacks to Islam. They word their event to appear as another civil injustice “combating Islamophobia” and use dawa to convert. ( Dawa is the proselytizing of Islam).
Its truly astonishing how the muslims4ferguson can help cause such chaos, and then disappear just as the national media does, but even more so to continue with their black and brown lives matter campaign. Two white officers were shot, and they hardly blink.
On the flip side of that, they will come out swinging if they believe one of their own has been shot, or killed (undoubtedly at the hands of white Islamophobes or haters) Surprise surprise. The recent, tragic killing of an Iraqi man as he took pictures of the snow in Dallas TX was a 17 yr old black punk named Nykerion Nealon. It’s bad enough the Muslim community has this double standard but its rotten when the administration has the same one.
I hear crickets again..
