Skip to comments.Still no riots, why?
Posted on 07/14/2013 3:23:39 PM PDT by ProudFossil
Earlier I asked the question "Why no riots yet". I think I may have the answer. Most of the thugs who have been twitting and mouthing the hate, predictions, threats, etc., during the last two weeks are dependent upon the entititlements of the gubmint. That includes directions and orders. Since the gubmint has only said they are investigating the events about this incident, the thugs do not know what to do. Until Zero, or Sharpton, Jackson, or NAACP tells them to do something they are lost.
On a more grim note, why no investigation into the 11,000 murders that have occurred since the gangsta was shot? Many of those were infants and pre-teens. But no comment from Zero, Sharpton, Jackson, or the NAACP so no problem.
No riots because apart from a handful of people and the constant flogging by the media, NO ONE CARES. Some photo ops, a few protesters, a couple of race batters and poverty pimps. BUT NO ONE CARES!!
Well, they certainly wouldn’t want to be charged with rioting without a permit....
Maybe because gun ownership has increased 10 fold since the LA riots.....I made that up about the 10 fold, but I bet I’m close.
Because a lot more people own guns now, and Zimmerman got off.
Despite the high profile rants and threats, most people know that St. Skittles was in the wrong.
Probably because there’s nothing left to destroy and loot in their immediate neighborhoods, so it’s not worth it. They would have to travel miles to do any damage around here.
The check isn’t there yet.
Was prepared in case they happened but am happy they didn’t.
Not only that, but how does that compare with the number of murders over a similar time frame before Martin? With no comparison, the number is meaningless.
Because this time those in leadership positions, for example, ministers their leadership position in the communities in which they serve in a serious manner.
Maybe it’s because “check day” (the 15th) isn’t until tomorrow......gots to have a couple of bucks to get to the hunting grounds, after all.
Trayvon was a racist, thug wannabe and not the saint the usual baiters made him out to be. No Rosa Parks here. The damaging info got out to much of the crowd and they aren’t going to riot over a dead, soon to be criminal who was caught with burglary tools and stolen jewelry.
Uneducated poor people are just too fat and lazy these days to get up off their @$$e$ and burn down their neighborhoods.
Too early to claim victory yet on the riot front. Let the race pimps rev em up for a few days.....
NBC News is stoking race wars, claiming there
is growing anger across the country.
NBC is as evil as Obama and the Fannie Mae they both protect.
I think that’s true. Many black people have someone like Martin in their families, and they probably thought (privately) that he got what he deserved or at least that he was going to end up that way sooner or later. I don’t think he’s quite the cause célèbre that’s Sharpton and Obama hoped.
Because every No_Limit_Youknowwhat has a new factor to consider in his plans to f*** up YT.
Riots are cliché.
I don't believe it will take the form of riots. It will take the form of increased, isolated thug attacks against white people.
Check your situational awareness, people.
Cause any one with 1/2 to .0009 brain knows who done what.
Because millions of Christians, here and abroad have been praying for peace:
“For the peace of the whole world,
for the well being of the church of God,
and for the unity of all,
let us pray to the Lord....Lord, have mercy.”
No bus service on the weekends...
Community Organizers take the weekends off
(They’ll be coordinating Monday)
They are nearly three weeks out from their last EBT refill and two more weeks until their next “payday”.
In other words, they’re too broke to riot.
Because only the meanest people would want to riot in reaction to someone defending himself and/or his neighbors and being acquitted for doing so. Many young folks have tried to get attention and stir up some excitement by talking about doing things that they wouldn’t really do. They want reputations as being mean, but they’re not in their neighborhoods’ majorities. They’re only heard more through the new media (the Internet). That’s nothing new.
Well, if they want to cover the race riots they provoked they must drive their mobile studio vans to the area for the backdrop shots. It would be a shame if someone threw a Molotov cocktail into the studio van...
I suspect that is 11,000 “homicides” (which include suicide), instead of 11,000 “murders”.
I note this because in rebuttal against gun liberty, the gun controllers point out that Arizona ranks 11th in the nation for gun “homicides”. But what they don’t mention is that 71% of those gun homicides are gun suicides. If you eliminate suicides from the statistics, Arizona is close to dead last.
They’re waiting for a weekday, when the rest of us are at work.
One of the nice parts of social media is that it let’s people vent their frustrations rather than build them. Also the situation is very different, there was a lot of ugliness going on in LA before Rodney King, there was going to be a riot or something ugly eventually one way or the other.
Too addicted also. Drugs, junk food, sex but especially their smart phones and internet.

It has been about a year, and that is approximately our annual run rate on murders.
Too many people are having their own problems to care about some punk. Nor do people actually riot.
But more so, it is easy to be brave from a keyboard or run your mouth on twitter.
Ha! You’re funny!
I spoke to one of the inner city pastors I know in Detroit this afternoon. He says gangsta culture is to blame. Without the culture, Martin would have either stopped and spoken to Zimmerman rationally or ran and not stopped till he got home.
Unfortunately the gangsta culture sees those two options as weakness.
Fat Albert will be in Orlando within a day or so, coinciding with the national NAACP Convention.
He’s got to get this done quick, while he still has the ground troops at the venue.
Jesse Jackpot is stoking the flames at the national level.
PMSNBC within one hour of the verdict, declared all six jurors were racists and NRA members. Twitter terrorists not only posted GZ’s address, but also the names of all six jurors.
If we don’t see full-scale burnings of the cities, what we MIGHT start seeing is single-incident drive-by’s, lots of rounds of the Knockout Game, and multiple flash mobs. It’s imperative that the shock troops get doing interesting things quickly, or they lose interest: that’s one of Alinsky’s Rules...
The fact that the legality of shooting back was reaffirmed probably has something to do with it.
The cause of "social justice"?
In a world without higher principles, who cares about social justice?
Without something to gain personally, no one will riot except those few people who want to use this as an excuse to steal something.
These are self serving people. What self is served by protesting this?
The Rodney King mess was more than a generation ago. There’s a whole new crop of rugrats out there, and because of the internet and social media they are far more politically aware than you think they are. They know it’s not worth it. The dumbest of the dumb might try something, but they’ll be a small minority and on their own. And everybody knows that the cops know who they are and where they live.
I saw an amusing post on Facebook: “Get over it. They’re just getting back at us for the O.J. Simpson verdict.”
No worries, everyone knows that 95.3% of all statistics are made up on the spot.
What went wrong? The MSM has been fanning the flames like crazy... Jesse and Al and Obozo have spouted off... Obama's son and all...
The MSM and race baiters will have to try harder...
I think the usual suspects (Sharpton, Jackson) figured out some time ago this was a poor horse to hitch their wagon upon. It’s coming to light St. Skittles was nothing more than a street hood, and that’s not good PR for their side. Sure, they’re out today and last night making speeches, but their heart isn’t in it.
I had found similar black on black data on a CDC report via google. The 11,000 figure is pretty much right.
Simple reason; there was no video of the event. They got all wee-wee’ed up over Rodney King because it was a visceral, visual thing they could latch onto. The power of pictures.
Here? Nothing but text and court transcriptions, which don’t carry the same weight unless you actually sit yourself down and pore over the nitty-gritty details. The type of people capable of rioting over these sorts of things aren’t very suited for the heavy-lifting of becoming informed and knowledgeable about a court case, honestly.
Maybe people are smart enough to realize that the evidence of any wrongdoing was very weak. We mustn’t assume that everybody who is “told” or “encouraged” to riot...will actually riot. People can often see through things, especially when it is their bodies that are being “encouraged” to go rushing forward to the front lines of battle.
In days past, rioters had little to lose.
These days, owed in part to plenty of handouts of various types, those who would be expected to riot in the past have “more” to lose, thus they have less incentive to rock the boat.
IMO, that encompasses this situation, but there are other situations where people can be encouraged to generate counterproductive and pointless destruction with little more that ideological persuasion.
Basically this. This whole story is ginned up faux outrage created entirely by the media. The real story is who decided to gin this up and why.
Oh wait.. The day is not over yet!
