9 Things To Think About Before You Start Rioting And Looting
Townhall.com ^ | August 17, 2014 | Doug Giles

Posted on 08/17/2014 7:57:14 AM PDT by Kaslin

Things are getting dicey out there in the United States of Acrimony, eh? People are pissed. They’re sick of the government … sick of control … sick of the inequities and absurdities in our land … sick of the man and the machine … sick of our borders having bigger holes than a fat woman’s pantyhose after high steppin' a barbed-wire fence; and sick, hallelujah, of that little priss, Justin Bieber.

It appears as if, ladies and gents, that rebellion/revolution is America’s soup de jour.

Yep, it’s cuckoo time and me likey.

This is what it must’ve felt like in 1773 minus the powdered wigs and small pox.

As we’ve seen this past week in Ferguson, MO, folks are fed up and ready to break crap if they have to in order to bring about justice; and I dig that spirit.

However, and this is just my advice: before we starting burning the mother down, we should make certain that the war we wage, the cause we champion and the person we support is noble and legit. Amen? Amen.

With that in mind, herewith are nine things to consider before you burn your neighborhood or city down to the ground:

Check it out: Prior to rioting, looting and pillaging and taking off a week to trash the place in which you live and risk being tear gassed, shot and/or run over by Barney Fife’s new army tank, ask yourself these nine diagnostic questions …

1. Has the man I want to champion just been exposed on CCV stealing Swisher Sweet cigars by the armload from a convenience store?

2. Did this self-same man violently grab, shove and intimidate a tiny little store clerk?

3. Did the man I’m supporting flip off the camera a lot via Twitter?

4. Did the man I am ready to go to bat for make gang-signs quite often as he sat for photographic portraits taken by his friends? Oh, and don't forget, do due diligence to ascertain whether or not he also had rap songs out in which he praises murder, drug use and screwing ho's.

5. Also, before you go out on a limb in a revolution, try to be certain that the person you’re willing to go to jail for didn’t climb into a cop’s car and then punch him in the face.

6. Similarly, make sure your champion didn’t try to take the police officer’s firearm before you paint him as a damsel in distress.

7. Further, before you hinge your freedom on a deceased person, be careful to make sure that the witness you’re banking on wasn’t a part of a robbery that could implicate him and thus cause him to ... uh ... embellish his story.

8. In addition, before you destroy your city, bear in mind your taxes will probably spike once the dust settles to rebuild what you just torched and ransacked.

9. And finally, ask yourself: "Self, how will your stealing seven bottles of Mad Dog 20/20 bring about justice?”

I figured, after looking at the picture, that a pants belt would be the #1 item to think about.

You may be giving looters too much credit to assume that they actually think, about anything.

Yeah, I heard all stores in one particular area were looted except for the book store and the shoe store was looted but all the WORK boots were left in tact.

It is a accumulation of government shi! that has finally hit the fan. People are getting sick of low wages, unemployment, constant restrictions from the local to the Feds. It's coming to an end.

Like the article, but they’re “ferals” .... they don’t ‘think’, at least not in the same way as we would define ‘thinking’.

While I do have sympathy for MB’s parents (who did lose a child, regardless of what he was outside of their house), the rest of the shenanigans going on have hardened my heart considerably to the overall “justice” meme that those in Ferguson want us to hear and listen to. While it’s thought that about 200 non-Ferguson ferals are responsible for the looting, molotov cocktails, violence, etc., the community needs to rise up (not just the police) and throw the instigators OUT of town - Sharpton, Jackson, Black Panthers & anybody else who doesn’t belong. They need to take their town back & quit the destruction of local businesses, property, etc. Until they do that and show they are capable of a civilized, dignified, rational discussion of the situation, they can ‘talk to the hand’ as far as I’m concerned. I’m just fed up with this cr@p - act like human beings, not wild animals.

I suspect the phrase "tax increase" is unlikely to provoke dread in the hearts of the Ferguson looters.

#2, When did Americans start covering their faces like third world thugs? Cowards! How many of these uneducated are on food stamps, drugs and other government assistance? Find that out, fine them and put them to work on repairing their damage.

They can't act like humans because they are no longer human. And the fact that they have regressed to a feral state is defended by their parents and their culture...even by the President and the DOJ.

The first steps in fixing a problems are (1) admit that there is a problem, (2) take responsibility for it and (3) clearly define it.

That will never happen in the culture in question.

Meet the Press today is a liberal rap session about why do black men get shot by cops, why are so many black men in prison, why are there so few black police officers, etc.

The liberals on the show said
we need a dialogue on the issues. No condemnation of rioting. Just liberal angst about how we need dialogue and need to understand where blacks feelings are coming from.

Buildings in Watts in Los Angeles are still empty, after riots there in 1966.

NO insurance company will cover them, and no business will go there & take any more chances on a repeat.

ANT merchant that stays in Ferguson is not thinking straight about business.

Problem is, most of them are on welfare and don't pay any taxes, so it is really us who will have to take up the slack.

As we saw in LA in the Rodney King riots they will get on roof tops with guns.

Rly! hahahahaha. Also re #9 - of course it's justice. Especially if you've been fed a vile stew of hate and racial division all of your life. The one thing that stands out about that axis of the country (draw a line from kansas city to louisville) is an incredible polarization of racialism, with all sorts of nasty race-related cultural artifacts completely institutionalized, and all public institutions racially divided.

This mix of catering to ethnic separatism and wholesale distribution of largesse in the poverty bloc leads to this kind of crap all around the world, all throughout history.

*******************************************

Unfortunately, that puts the remaining law-abiding, decent people who are humans in the position of “you loot, we shoot” and further strengthens the case for citizens being armed and able to defend themselves, their families, homes and property ..... and despite the race baiting attempts to color this situation ‘all black’, it doesn’t matter what color the ferals are.
