I think riots will scare the Shiite out of Liberal White Democrats and "Independents."
“Tough on Student Violence” is what got Reagan elected Governor.
During the presser tonight, there was a question about NG, and the response was that they weren’t requesting it. I wonder if a reporter had gotten wind of a pre-deployment standby. If so, they might beat the 24 hours that’s pretty common for a cold start callout.
And to think that the left kept saying that the Tea Party was going to be the violent ones.
Maybe the lefties are hoping for Kent state- they got a lot of mileage out of that one and all it took was an anonymous shooter.
You are really over-thinking this.
MO. Governor is a Democrat, the president is a Democrat. They are the ones in charge of this.
So what the hell are these people going to turn out for? To give them more power?
How you likin’ your government now lefties? I think they should drone strike those protestors and complteley walk all over their right to assembly and free speech... because they’re all a bunch of demoocrats and I’m a self centered partisan hack that doesn’t give a shiite about the constitution. drone strike them!
To the surprise of nobody CNN keeps bashing the police and the crowd can do nothing wrong.
We Freepers have protested in the past but there’s a major difference. If things got so bad that people would use our protest for violence and looting we would give it up. The whole idea is what message is your protest trying to send. Is it that you support thugs and looting? That’s the message I get from the St Louis protestors. We Freepers would say that they’re not going to hide in our crowd. If that means packing it all in, then oh well.
Another major difference is that when we get done with a protest, there’s less trash than when we got there. You can always tell a leftist protest by the massive amounts of trash they leave everywhere.
True. I was in a Howitzer Battery in 1984. All of our unit was prior service vets with at least 3 years active behind us. Most were four year and over prior service. The youngest guy I worked with in Ammo was in his late 20's like me.
Too bad it’s always the Republicans who are stuck cleaning up all the messes.
The cops are over militarized. Heck they are better equipped then the national guard will be.
In terms of D and R I don’t think the anarchy and violence on the streets of Ferguson is in the best interests of the Democrats prospects nationwide.
Obama and his agents are getting what they want - chaos. Marxist Cloward Piven strategy to collapse the system before it can be rebuilt into their communist dream. How many provacateurs are being sent into Ferguson from Leftist front groups and how many of them are being paid by the Federal government through grants or other indirect means, I wonder?
So what happens now if my house is burglarized in Ferguson? Or if I am car jacked? Or assaulted?
Does the NG investigate? I heard the police were de-authorized.
Yes, but it's getting ahead of their agenda; it's about 6-7 weeks too early.
Actually I saw the crowd more than once drop the dime on trouble makers.
Too early for what? Elections? It could last through elections.
You think this is the same country, with the same electorate as it was in the 60’s?
Too early for “October Surprise”.
What's the old saying - A Conservative is a Liberal who has been mugged?
I'd like to see a lot of Liberals get mugged over the next few months.
It is right on time. The final stage is the rise up of the lower class, generally violently. In fact, the head provocateur is instigating protests in DC. Sharpton needs to be arrested. Are they working to have martial law in place before Nov.? Could very well be that race violence would intimidate most GOP voters to just stay home. Flash back to those panthers outside a polling location...
The point is instead of sitting home which is he usual pattern in of year elections this motivates blacks and a lot of low information voters in the RAT base to show up to keep Evil Racist Tea Party Republicans from winning. Wont take much to turn close races. Like NC senate, LA senate etc etc.
Was thinking the same.
The lunatics and liberals, and race baiters were moaning about police being military to deflect attention away from the robbery, crime, and rioting.
Now the military is there
Most accurate post on here in the last week.
All this talk about cops being military is a diversion to take away from the crime, laws, robbery rioting, and looting.
The attack on the cops is also the agenda of the Dems to get the blacks out to vote.
I’d have thought even the most common non political person would have seen this by now, but alas no.
Some want no cops and hate cops because they want their drugs legal, speed and cut people upon the road, have sex with anything, and do what ever they want.
Course we know most of those people will be crying for law and order after a week or thugs rampaging through their neighborhoods
right now, teams of democrats are focus grouping message mems to see what from this series of events they can use to motivate their base into coming out in November.
It’s an opportunity.
“I would be surprised if he doesnt allow them to have ammo...”
I would wager a steak dinner that they won’t be packing ammo. And, their rules of engagement will be so stringent that should anyone even fart they will be court martialed. Btw, anyone know what unit(s) are called up?
I think they might want that. It could introduce a lot of chaos and confusion into the voting process, and that would facilitate fraudulent voting.
They will have ammo, and have it bigtime.
This is the job for police. This is why the police were militarized. It they’re impotent, fire the entire management chain.
Rather, you will see come this November a CONSERVATIVE takeover of the Senate. The incidents in Ferguson tip the scale towards having a law and order spate of USA Senate elections.
Unless, of course, if you are like the dems and want to see such unrest that martial law is declared.
You will see Democrats and Indies crossing the voting line and voting for conservative GOPers, who will be law and order oriented.
Nope, marital will not happen.
Rather you will see the NG put the troublemakers in their place.
Nope, martial law will not happen.
They will be “well prepared”, and fully ready, mark my words.
Didn't say it would. It's what Obama and his regime are pushing for, though. They want complete control over society.
I wouldn't discount their ability to manufacture fraudulent ballots and find a judge who will allow them because of "extraordinary circumstances", not letting a perfectly good crisis go to waste.
.....They can keep on dreaming.
I do speak with CONFIDENCE though that I will be spot on. Count on strict monitoring in that area to protect against voter fraud.
Just thinking... I wonder if Holder ordered Nixon to put out the NG?
Underdiscussed: police are being portrayed, by their own actions, as laughably impotent. All that tough paraphanelia does nothing. This is so encouraging the criminal element to distain police more than ever.
I was wondering how the Dems and media were going to spin last night. And there it is. The mayhem is being caused by “outsiders.” Not the peaceful Ferguson protesters. Imagine the media reaction if the tea party were the ones burning, smashing, and looting an entire community during their protests.
The only non-African-American people who are not armed and wearing body armor who are going to step into that mess over the next few months are reporters -- who are about 97.5% liberal. I think you might get your wish.
In 1966 or 1967, it wouldn't have taken a week to call out the National Guard. Maybe a day.
"Nixon's The One!"
("History repeats itself, and that's one of the things that's wrong with history." -Clarence Darrow)
I wish I had your confidence. Dems control those areas, and I've given up believing there a bottom to that barrel.
