RUSH: Grab audio sound bite number 22. I want you to hear this not from me, even though you can totally trust me, but I want you to hear it from the source. This is last night, CNN's Newsroom, the anchor, Poppy Harlow. That sounds like somebody that ought to be in a film noir movie about LA from the forties. But she's an infobabe at CNN, Poppy Harlow, and she spoke with Morehouse College professor Marc Lamont Hill. Wait a minute. I thought he was at Columbia. Well, he must have moved on. Morehouse College professor Marc Lamont Hill about last night's unrest in Ferguson, curfew, all of this, the rioting, the looting after the release of the video, which the Drive-Bys demanded, by the way.
Why does nobody remember that? Everybody was asking if there was a video. Everybody was demanding a video. Were there surveillance cameras in the store? The cops didn't say anything, finally released it, and everybody forgets the media demanded the release of it. So, anyway, Poppy Harlow said to Marc Lamont Hill, "As we were talking to you earlier live on CNN, it appeared that there were peaceful demonstrations going on. Do you get a sense that there is anything that may have sparked that, the peaceful demonstrations to unravel, as we try to decipher why this has escalated so much this evening?"
And everybody was trying to figure this out, what the hell happened? The video was released on Friday. There was some looting later that night when the highway patrol and the cops got out of the way and let it happen, which led to store owners showing up armed to protect -- by the way, have you heard what the police chief in Detroit has told citizens to do? Get guns and protect themselves. I'm not kidding. The police chief of Detroit has told citizens there that the best thing they can do is arm up. Yeah, and it's what's happening in St. Louis. It's what's happening in Ferguson.
So, anyway, here's Marc Lamont Hill's answer to the question: why all of a sudden did this blow up after it was so peaceful for so long?
HILL: There's a small group of people who are doing something different and out of step from everyone else. They're out-of-towners. The ones I spoke to were actually from Oakland. I saw them last night past curfew, I saw them this morning, and they also are the ones who initiate the violence. But I think the police reaction has also been pretty intense and some would argue even overreaching. I was here in the parking lot, I got out of my car, out of media vehicle, and the officer immediately drew his weapon and in a very, very threatening manner. I immediately screamed, "I'm media! I'm media!" and it was only then that he put his weapon down and told me that I could go back and walk. So I think if that kind of energy is in the air combined with some protesters who aren't doing the right thing, I think creates a very, very, very dangerous mix.
CNN: Out of Towners from Oakland Inciting Violence in Ferguson
RUSH: See, once again, here comes the myth, folks. I guarantee you if Marc Lamont Hill of Morehouse College knows that we got some New Black Panther types and others in town from Oakland, and he said initiating the violence. So according to him it's not even locals. You got people in town from Oakland. There's a huge New Black Panther chapter there. So they're in town inciting this, initiating the violence, and he says the police reaction has been pretty intense. Well, why wouldn't it be? Private property is being destroyed, for crying out loud.
You know, if you just step back from some of this and look at it as though you just arrived from Mars, a lot of it makes sense. But if you are subject to the myth making of the Democrat Party and the media and interested parties to this, you're gonna have an entirely distorted picture of what's gone on there and why and what continues to happen. So then he says (imitating Hill), "Yeah, I arrived in my media car. Yeah, I showed up in my media vehicle. Yeah, I drove up there and then got out of my car, a media vehicle. And the officer drew his weapon in a very threatening manner and I screamed, 'I'm media! I'm media!'"
Why didn't he scream, "I'm journalism! I'm journalism! I'm a professor! I'm a professor!" But when he was with the media then the cops backed down, told him he could go ahead and walk. And he said, "All of this energy, it's very intense." It makes total sense it would be intense. You got people from out of town that are rioting, that are looting, setting places on fire, and, as usual, the cops are being blamed for it.
and some protesters are from New York
gotta give props to Rush, for having one of his staff monitor the channel no one else watches to get these tidbits from Mark Lamont Hill, who no one else can stand.
Bussed in by Eric Holder and that includes those from Oakland and anywhere else outside MO
Oakland Missouri, Oakland Maine, Oakland California....what?
uh...are you trying for the Post of the Week or what?
And some agitators are from the U.S. Attorney Generals office.
I don’t think we have any New Black Panthers in Oakland. If they came here, I suspect that our Black Lesbian Mafia would eat those boys for breakfast ;-)
The other night, Fri. or Sat., Oakland had its own tete a tete, but it seemed mostly white, young skulls full of mush.
They must have sent the away team to Furgeson to throw the molotov cocktails and shoot into the crowd at 8:30pm, hours after the announcement of the autopsy diagram and before the curfew, proving the media’s take on hot button issues did not cause the latest round of violence.
I watched Don Lemon on CNN last night and he called the rioting and violence, “stupid, ignorant” and like the little valley girl he is, “embarrassing.”
He was basically pleading for the blacks to stop ruining the victim narrative.
The Weather Underground - DVD
Weather Underground Mark Rudd, Gut Check - challenge each other to be more violent
Weather Underground Mark Rudd, move off-campus and organize among the off-campus youth
Did Mark get his middle name from Lamont Cranston?
Only The Shadow knows.
I saw them last night past curfew, I saw them this morning, and they also are the ones who initiate the violence.
Hmmmm...The riots and violence started way before last night...
The thousands of rioting gangsters from Oakland, must have spend a fortune on air fare and hotels...
Say, where is Limbaugh from?
Raider’s fans need something to do until football stadium fighting season starts.
What’s that smell coming out of Ferguson ... Bill Ayers, Saul Alinsky, Sharpton & Jackson and the Eric the Corrupt Just-Us race baiters.
We had peaceful protests over a shooting here in Santa Rosa. A tragic thing, with more than one side to it (kid was shot for carrying with an airsoft gun in EXCACTLY the same fields we used to shoot BB guns in, that could have been me 35 years ago).
At several of the protests folks obviously from out of town tried to start a riot. Fortunately the community leaders of the protest basically let them know that THEY were going to be the victims of violence if they kept it up. The provocateurs were from Oakland I later found out (this has been an event that cut across all race and class lines around here IMO)
Unless you were a segregationist, KKK or from a slaver family (all democrats)...what’s to feel guilty about?
I graduated from Morehouse, when it was all white, students and teachers.
That would be Morehouse High School, class of '63. Small town in S.E. Missouri's "boot heel".
A new temporary home for the occupy crowd.
Cape Girardeau, Mo. about 100 miles south of St. Louis.
Oh, he’s from Missouri?
What a surprise...
