Times Square Shut Down By Thousands Marching As Ferguson Protests Spin-Off Across The Country
Daily Mail ^ | 14 August 2014 | By Josh Gardner For Mailonline and Louise Boyle For Mailonline

Posted on 08/14/2014 7:34:00 PM PDT by CorporateStepsister

The fifth night of demonstrations in support of gunned down Ferguson, Missouri teen Michael Brown saw scores of protesters marching through the streets of New York in a vigil that culminated in Times Square Thursday night.

Tensions flared as some protestors attempted to shove their way through a police barricade set up in their path toward the beating heart of the city.

Police held their own and tempers soon calmed, but as night gripped New York, the already congested Times Square ground to a halt as thousands flowed into the streets to demand an end to police brutality and militarization and justice for 18-year-old Brown.

Come hell or high water, they are going to have their riots. No big screen TV in any appliance store is safe.

how many years ago was it when this went on with the chant of “burn, baby burn” or something like that. This is the minor league of the world-wide anarchy movement.

I hope there is a riot; then all the liberals can get a dose of fear that normal people live with on a regular basis. I can only suppose that once the hipsters start getting beaten at the hands of the thugs they think of as their ‘bros,’ their attitudes will change. Irony is, that once things start getting out of hand, the hippies will start begging the police to help them out once the thugs start moving into the posh areas of their neighborhoods.

If there are riots and the country flares up over this, a Republican Congress will be elected in to sort all this out (as they always do after the Rats make a mess of things) and then order will be responded, with the spoiled brats mouthing off about evil Republicans.

Which means that victims, like the spoiled hipsters, won’t be getting help from the very police that they condemn.

Dear Leader of NY will be hiding in his police guarded mansion while he tweets support of the rioters. Or in fact, he’ll be leaving the country with his family to a secluded area, likely a heavily guarded island, where he will tweet support for the rioters while his guards seethe.

One unarmed black killed by a (presumably white) cop and there's hell to pay.

Notr are white neighborhoods. The twist or whatever they’re called-the things on twitter-have already begun where the “protestors” are telling each other to be sure to target white neighborhoods. Oazzhole was determined to have his race war so he could call for martial law. no wonder he’s just golfing all the time while the world goes to hell-he’s focussed on “The Plan”, the one Soros and his other puppet masters put him in office to fulfill.

If I was the mother of a small black child who was killed by a drive-by in my own neighborhood I’d be enraged by this.

It’s as if blacks don’t count——except for a select few,chosen by the media and the ass in the White House.

Not necessarily.It's well known that blacks only turn out in Presidential years.What better way to get them to turn out in an "off" year?

” the “protestors” are telling each other to be sure to target white neighborhoods”

I look forward to seeing the Liberal bastions stormed and seeing those idealists running for their lives as their houses are burned will be an irony to behold. All their lives they spouted off to us from their ivory towers that these minorities should be welcomed EVERYWHERE (except their own precious homes) and soon they’ll be getting a taste of reality that so many have had to live with.

I think this is going to get bloody; soon all those hipsters will be dying at the hands of their ideal minorities. During the “Occupy” jaunt places like museums and churches were desecrated and defiled. I believe that the protestors will march to these places and end up going into affluent Manhattan and attacking the posh places that liberals live.

The muckety-muckiest of them undoubtedly have armed security. but that opens up another can of worms if the armed security finds it necessary to open fire upon their precious pets for targeting them. Then someone will be in the same dilemma as this cop was.

I can only think it’ll be worse since rioters can communicate and give each other addresses and other info on how to avoid the cops; by broadcasting it, the media will inadvertently enable others to coordinate rioting and also be encouraged.

I think you are right, but I don’t think this is going to help them. Can they really count on these rioters to show up to vote in November? There’s a much better chance they’ll just tick off white people enough to show up and pull the R lever.

THE WORLD IS FALLING APART - VOTE FOR THE PRESIDENT’S TEAM

Liberals and Hipsters already have the defanged police that they have wanted.

“Sorry about the five teeth knocked out and the concussion and the PBR spilled and the 3 grams of your pot stolen, but really sir I need to go down the block now and make a similar report for another of your neighbors. If we see anyone matching the description you gave we will look at them funny and tell other officers to be on the lookout for them. We won’t be able to arrest them because that might violate their rights.”

This is why I think that the slime-balls will finally get a taste of ‘dirty diversity’ as I call it. Their security will fire on the protestors and the protestors will get worked up and push through, attacking the security and then storming the apartments/mansions. At this point, escalation is inevitable.

Each time these blacks spread out and attack more police, then the Republicans will be voted in en-masse and then Obama will be neutralized with the full backing of the majority of the country.
