Riots in the 60's worked well for the Democrats, didn't it?

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?

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.

The last time I was at a National Guard armory, I didn’t see many teenagers. The demographics of the Guard has changed substantially since Kent State. Remember, most of them have had at least one deployment to Iraq and/or Afghanistan.

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.

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.

It happened once, but this time the media WANTS a race war.

Yes, but it's getting ahead of their agenda; it's about 6-7 weeks too early.

You would be surprised how a little riot will affect the electorate. The Blacks still just make up 13% of the population. Although the white majority has shrunk in percentage, the new Americans (legal and Illegal), don't owe the Blacks anything. I don't think they will appreciate their neighborhoods getting burned down.

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

I’m hoping these riots spread to every State that has a Senate election in November. The Democrats will be Shiiteing bricks.

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.

Unless, of course, if you are like the dems and want to see such unrest that martial law is declared.

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.

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.

"I'd like to see a lot of Liberals get mugged over the next few months."

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.
