A graduate newspaper connected with the CIty University of New York featured an editorial this month calling for protestors against the police to arm themselves and direct their rage toward "those deserving the most virulent response of an enraged populace.
New York Post:
The time for peace has passed, says a revolutionary editorial titled In Support of Violence that was penned by editor-in-chief Gordon Barnes in the Dec. 3 issue of The Advocate.
The problem with the protesters violence in Ferguson is that it is unorganized. If the violence was to be organized, and the protesters armed more so than the few that sparingly are then the brunt of social pressures would not be laid onto middling proprietors [of looted small businesses], but unto those deserving the most virulent response of an enraged populace, Barnes writes in the CUNY Grad Centers publication.
The acts of looting, destruction of property and violence directed towards state representatives is not only warranted, it is necessary, says Barnes, a doctoral student in history who once studied in Cuba.
The editorial illustrated in the online version with the circled, capital A that symbolizes anarchy also urges rioters to emulate the Black Panthers and Malcolm X instead of Martin Luther King and other advocates of nonviolence and hopes the unrest will morph into a revolution.
The violence against property, that is destruction and theft, is only an unorganized form of something with the potential to be far more revolutionary and inspiring, says Barnes, who is paid from $10,000 to $20,000 a year as a graduate assistant and who also pockets an annual stipend of $24,000 as a Presidential MAGNET fellow, according to his LinkedIn page.

I would make a joke about CUNY Spelling their name with a “Y” instead of a “T” but let’s face it you’ve already made it in your head.
Written by a guy who thinks all guns should be allowed, no doubt. Where does he think the protestors would get their arms?
I made an assumption about the author, and I was right. This is a privileged, government-approved America-hating minority. Given a free pass all its life, and now it blames its problems on the police and Whitey.
Who’s paying its salary?
America in Crisis
A stupid overpaid intellectual.
He ain’t smart fer sore... y’all know wat publik educasion buys... not street smarts.
Dat nigga bro, is too smart fer his own good, if yer git what I’m sayin’.
This is advocating terrorism and is not protected by the first amendement. Where is Homeland Security? (crickets).
Yup. Inciting violence to overthrow the US government is terrorism.
Don’t look for Gordon Barnes to be fired for his revolutionary terrorism though.
Is he a white, military veteran, tea partier?
No? Move along, nothing to see here.
This guy is a bomb thrower. He will make certain that the rocks and bricks get thrown, the fires set, and the cities burn. He will inspire, goad, and cajole. And he will do it all of it without personally getting his hands dirty.
CUNY is possibly the worst cesspool masquarading as an institute of higher learning in the nation. It is a laughingstock in NYC and is known as the place where morons are molded into idiots. Not only is the place a Marxist fever swamp, but the level of education provided is not much above a Turkish prison.
Moderator deleted my comment even though these racists use the “n” word themselves as a term of endearment anyway.
And yes, he still still an overeducated black n***a.
That’s what they call him in da hood. It isn’t whites who are insulting blacks, its blacks who are insulting blacks.
Our moderator needs to get over the political correctness and pandering to black racists.
When they stop using the “n” word - so will I.
He should be charged with making terroristic threats and held as an accesory to the murder of NYPD Officers Ramos and Lui.
That map hanging on the wall behind him tells me all I need to know about him.
Wonder if they would be so enthusiastic if someone hacked their editorials and demanded that they attack and burn down CUNY because of its history of white privilege and oppression of the black and semi-black population?
There is an enraged population all right, but it isn't the one the marxist dip weed who wrote the piece is thinking about.
