In Support of Violence

Gordon Barnes, CUNY Advocate, December 3, 2014


The 24 November grand jury decision not to indict Darren Wilson over the 9 August fatal shooting of teenager Michael Brown has been met with a mixed consensus amongst people in the United States. On the one hand, there are those who claim that the rule of law has prevailed, and that there is nothing else to do. For others, there is a feeling of indignance that has catapulted people into large, sometimes violent, demonstrations in Ferguson and across the United States. State officials and political pundits have either vilified the protests or appealed for some semblance of calm in the wake of the grand jury’s decision. There is almost no discussion on the anti-democratic nature of the grand jury process, on Jay Nixon preemptively calling a state of emergency, or the role that the police play in this society. The focus, it seems, is on the lack of so-called civility on behalf of some of the protesters. Conservatives often use racialist, if not overtly racist, rhetoric when considering what is happening in Ferguson. Liberals appeal to the protestors to harken to the whitewashed legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. and engage in peaceful demonstrations.

The time for peace has passed, indeed it never existed in this country. It doesn’t matter if Brown robbed a convenience store, or even if he assaulted Wilson. What matters is that the case highlights the depths to which the capitalist state and its police forces will protect their own and attempt to stifle any sort of dissent. Imagine if Wilson was the aggressor in the situation–which is more likely than Brown being the aggressor–and Brown defended himself with deadly force, mortally wounding Wilson. Brown would have likely go to prison for life, whereas Wilson has been cleared for what has been deemed a justifiable shooting. And it is justifiable based on how police operate within the United States: with near impunity.

The violence of the police is almost always defensible in the eyes of the ruling elite, as evinced by Barack Obama’s platitudes to liberal desires to the rule of law in the aftermath of the grand jury decision. So, why then is the violence of the protestor so reviled? It is confounding that the people seem more concerned about the loss of property than the loss of life in the aftermath of the Ferguson decision. While there are opportunists who have used the protests to their own end, the acts of looting, destruction of property, and violence directed towards state representatives is not only warranted, it is necessary. If people could, they would target the police, but the protesters know that a direct confrontation (with what is now a military force in this country) at this time would likely result in their deaths. The destruction of property in the area is the next best option. And while it is lamentable that some so-called mom-and-pop shops are targeted alongside the larger businesses, it is the truly dispossessed, downtrodden, social ostracized, and oppressed peoples who are engaging in the only viable option to lash out at an increasingly militarized, bureaucratically regimented, and authoritarian society. It is clear that while the murder of Michael Brown was the catalyst for these events, it is not the cause. The cause is the decades long, the centuries long, daily oppression people experience at the hands of the capitalist state.

{snip} The problem with the protestors’ violence in Ferguson is that it is unorganized. If the violence was to be organized, and the protestors armed–more so than the few that sparingly are–then the brunt of social pressures would not be laid onto middling proprietors, but unto those deserving the most virulent response of an enraged populace.

Calls for calm emanating from the upper strata of society are an attempt to mitigate the popular indignation that has long been bubbling under the surface of the society. 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. To say that an all-out class war is on the horizon would be hyperbolic at this point, and maybe even myopic, but the undergirding social structures that position disenfranchised and working class peoples well below the dictatorship of capital are being pressured, the police being only one such institution. With increased organization, the Ferguson protests and riots do have the potential to transform from seemingly random attacks to ones that aim at puncturing the status quo. This is not a quixotic notion, it is within the realm of material possibilities, and activist-scholars should be lending their weight to this and other attendant struggles. The reliability and social productivity of voting for bourgeoisie parties is long dead. The demonstration turned riot, turned revolt, is the most effective means to bring about a new, more egalitarian social paradigm. {snip}

The death of Michael Brown has spurred this process and has fomented mass discontent with the government. Furthermore, the events in Ferguson have fomented the most visible resistance to the status quo in the United States. What is needed now is to take the next step from indiscriminate attacks to ones directly pointed at state power as well as at the lackeys and apologists who allow it to prosper. The transformative potential emanating from the protestors’ violence in Ferguson and elsewhere will not help recoup some “golden age” in the United States–there never was one–but can hopefully prove to be the kernel of radically altered social relations.


While the Advocate is opposed to state violence, and we support the protests on Ferguson, and we do not think that Wilson should be free, this editorial represents the individual views of the Editor-in-Chief, not the views of the Advocate or the DSC.

    How wonderful that a tax supported university newspaper embraces such violence.

    • Publius Pompilius Quietus

      Savages will always have an excuse for violence.

      • Bryce Armstrong

        I’m just glad our so called “Capitalist State” is the only thing strong enough to keep these barbarians in line.

      • Reynardine

        Excuses are for semi-civilized men. Savages don’t even comprehend the need for an excuse.

    • Realist

      Colleges and universities accept ‘students’ with garbage for brains.
      Everybody thinks their little darling is college material.

      • Anna Tree

        I was though a bit surprised that the newspaper said “Conservatives often use racialist, if not overtly racist, rhetoric”. They try so hard to make both words synonyms that this must have slip of the radar.

        • Realist

          I agree.

    • Conrad

      It is obvious from the text that CUNY is a Communist bastion. Otherwise they would call for proper civil behavior and the rule of law.

  • Oil Can Harry

    Nice to know there are plenty of young bruthas who’ll fill the shoes of Al Pimpton and Jesse Jerkson when they die.

  • Easyrhino

    “The death of Michael Brown has spurred this process and has fomented mass discontent with the government. Furthermore, the events in Ferguson have fomented the most visible resistance to the status quo in the United States.”

    This is utter nonsense.

    Blacks have proven they don’t give a rip about the lives of other blacks unless one is killed at the hands of a White person. Brown’s death spurred virtually nothing, it was the media’s propagandizing Brown’s death that fomented mass discontent.

    • TruthBeTold

      Their obfuscation is blatant:

  • With increased organization, the Ferguson protests and riots do have the potential to transform from seemingly random attacks to ones that aim at puncturing the status quo.

    I actually think it’s doing the opposite: Opening a lot of white peoples’ eyes. The other side isn’t doing itself any favors with the way it’s conducting business; very bad optics and PR. Sure, if all those crackpots care about is attracting more crackpots and networking with and among crackpots, then they’re doing exactly what they should do. But that will amount to zero political success outside of their crackpot bubble.

    We still have a viable Second Amendment because the NRA figured out that if you teach a man how to fish, you only teach a man how to fish, while if you teach a married family woman how to fish, you’re also teaching her kids and her simp husband how to fish. This handsupdontshoot gang is not making any inroads among suburban white women.

    • Bryce Armstrong

      Blacks aren’t doing anything different now then during the civil rights movement, why expect a different outcome this time?

      • One thing working against the other side is the law of diminishing marginal returns.

      • TruthBeTold

        If you look at the broad picture, blacks pretty much got everything they demanded. Their only hope to take more is to exploit ‘the murder of unarmed black men’ and other tangential issues.

        That’s what we’re going to get from now on. As Jared Taylor said, our future is now putting out fires.

        • John R

          Exactly. This struggle for “equality” was always a sham. It was never about “equality”; it was about take, take, take. As a result, if you are White, and you DON’T hold any views that black people might find offensive, then, you are a race traitor.

      • Cheri Rodriguez

        Two totally different eras and objectives. From 1947-1963 to gain “equality” blacks were willing to be called “n*gger” and take a beating (fire hoses, attack dogs, billy clubs) on national TV to get the sympathy vote. Today blacks in the media and politics like Oprah Winfrey, Jamie Foxx and Eric Holder come right out and make it clear they want to rule over Whites and/or see them dead. 1947-1963 blacks (and their enablers) had the world fooled; now not so much.

        • John R

          Thank you. Please see my comment above.

      • John R

        It is different now:
        1. There are fewer Whites in the population. Whites are finding it harder to “buy there way out” of this conflict by moving. (I have brought up that point before.) It is easy to like blacks when you seldom have to encounter blacks.
        2. The economy and standard of living for average Americans is not what it used to be. It is a lot tougher for Whites to pay for college, get a job, and support a family. This tends to make people look out for themselves first.
        3. Blacks have got even more arrogant in recent years, especially since Obama was elected. They see less reason to rely on “moral persuasion” than in the past. Whites are reacting against that.
        No, it is a much different country from the 1960’s.

        • Nancy

          I would have to agree on all points. In Atlanta, the standard M.O. of home ownership for whites is to sell your house and move to another, whiter neighborhood every 8 years on average. Most people around here have owned their homes less than 10 years, unless they’re in an area that hasn’t seen the effects of Black Undertow yet (like in Forsyth County, the place where Oprah famously did her on-location episode where she berated the residents for daring to enforce their Freedom of Association and barring blacks).

          I’ve often spoken with my husband about our so-called “post-racial” President, who’s managed to embolden blacks in this country to behave even more abhorrently than any other time in history. It’s always been bad living in Atlanta, especially dealing with Black females in the public sector, but it’s gotten even worse since Obongo and his race-hucksters gave them tacit permission to act like barbarians.

          • Anna Tree

            I think that beside the point that we have to move and lost money, there is another consequence, if not a goal, to make whites move so much around different neighborhood, cities, or even states and countries: it is a lost of root and community. I fear it shakes and dismisses our instinctive devotion for our country/state/city/neighborhood, they hope that without that sense of belonging, our identity get shrunk, broken too, and the need, love and support of an extended family we find in people who look like us get destroy.

          • Nancy

            Well said. I’ve often complained that the Undertow destroys any efforts of whites to “put down roots” anywhere. It sucks that most of my childhood homes up and down the Eastern Seaboard (I moved around a lot) are now in “Ferguson-type” neighborhoods.

            I try to make that point whenever I talk to other whites, at least ones who are open to the Truth. People are always curious why we’ve chosen to move to Utah as soon as possible, and generally assume one of three things:

            A) We’re moving for my husband’s job,
            B) We have family in Utah, or
            C) We’re Mormon.

            So I get a kick out of telling them that no, we’re not Mormon, my husband can live anywhere within reasonable driving distance from an airport, and our move is primarily an effort to avoid the darkening demographic shift. (The fact that we have no extended family in Utah is what I refer to as a “win-win”. LOL) But it’s the only realistic chance we have of trying to put down roots where the Undertow won’t be creeping up in the next decade.

          • Anna Tree

            Yes people ask me the same question and albeit it was first mostly for the job, I also hint at changing demographics and looking for a safer area, homogeneous, and better for my children and the future, while saying how sad it is to see the place I came from declined and became foreign. I know other people from Europe who emigrated and although most think the same, not all are ready to say it to not bring up controversial issues. Well if we don’t warn people of the causes, we will end up with the same consequences; and there is nowhere else to go I tell them.

            American Amreners often wonder where is the best place to set up their future white country. It seems there is no agreement but I just hope most of you will still converge to the best spot eventually.

        • NoMosqueHere

          Despite increasing black anti white hate and violence, most whites remain stubbornly hopeful about black integration and advancement. I call it the Iowa Problem.

          Iowa is about 95% white/christian and pretty conservative, especially compared to liberal states such as California and New York. Yet Iowans vote for Bonehead Hussein twice, and by fairly wide margins. They seem to be immune to unpleasant facts and logic about race.

          Many whites have a mental block about blacks; to wit, that america can only reach its full potential if and when blacks attain complete parity with whites in all areas of life and work. Since this goal cannot possibly be achieved in any meaningful way, America is doomed to follow a hopeless path until the collapse comes.

          • John R

            Yes, after fifty years or more, some Whites are STILL struggling to find the one “magic” formula that will somehow transform blacks into White, hard working, patriotic, civic minded, Americans. They refuse to acknowledge the obvious.

  • NoMosqueHere

    Back when whites and jews predominated in NYC’s public colleges, CUNY was often referred to as the “Harvard of the Proletariat.” Numerous prominent intellectuals, artists, and just plain productive citizens attended CUNY. Now these institutions are dominated by anti american third worlders and affirmative action retards. Progress, huh?

    • me

      In the commu-lib-socialist’s eyes, this IS progress. Dismantling Western civilization and culture is their goal. They’re nothing but ‘useful idiots’ for the self-proclaimed ‘elites’ and their globalist agenda. Believe it! ‘College’ is nothing more than a word for highly-expensive ‘indoctrination centers’.

    This is nothing more than Neo-Marixst Bovine Scat. There is not one ounce of common sense in the article. Nothing more than propaganda peppered with Marxist slogans.

    • kikz2

      i got no further.. stopped reading at that exact point.. 😉

    • TruthBeTold

      Some of them earnestly believe this is THEIR civil rights moment and lots of people want to march with the herd.

      Unfortunately for them, they now have two dead police officers that cloud their narrative.

      • John R

        No. Unfortunately, the national media decided to REPORT THE TWO DEAD POLICE OFFICERS. OOPS! The media was not completely on board, and had some sympathy for police! This is probably because news outlets depend on police to give them news about exciting crime investigations and that the two dead officers were non-White, and finally, the “Baby Boomers” who dominate the news are dying off and some gen. X-ers are sneaking things past them.

    • LHathaway

      This is the most interesting editorial I’ve read about the riots.

    • John R

      “…will protect their own and attempt to stifle any sort of dissent…” Talk about the pot calling the kettle…

    • OyVey00

      It’s not even “Neo”. This is old school Marxism in all its glory. Lenin would’ve been proud of this guy.

  • guest

    When black thugs get killed by other black thugs, it’s just like any other normal day. It hardly ever makes the news and even if it does, people forget about it the next day and move on.

    When black thugs get killed by non-blacks (specifically Whites), then come the riots and the protests. The MSM reports on it nonstop and makes up false stories about how the dead thug was a victim of racism who had a promising future. And the thing is these rioters and protesters don’t even really care for the dead “victim”. They just want an excuse to cause trouble and commit violence.

    • John R

      And when Whites get killed by blacks…crickets.

  • nexus974

    Is it to be war then?
    So be it!

    • Fighting_Northern_Spirit

      Indeed. The only thing protecting them from the justice they richly deserve is the law and whites’ sense of fair play. Without the “capitalist” law these revcom fools will quickly meet their Pinochet.

      • John R

        Blacks hate police. But police protect THEM more than they do us.

        • Nonhumans

          And it is astounding how completely blind to this fact that nonhumans are. Especially considering that is the ideological soapbox that liberals stand on when blaming whites for all of the vapor-thin hardships of the poowah owpwessed widdle nonhumans.

  • Thor’s Hammer

    I made it through the second paragraph and had to stop reading. Not so much from the rantings of the communist writer, but because police leaders won’t stand in front of the news media and repeatedly tell people that
    1. If you don’t break the law, or resist arrest, you have nothing to fear of the police.
    2. Citizens are not allowed to “defend themselves” (re: resist arrest) against “police aggression.”
    Every single lawyer that stands up in court and claims that their negro, communist, libtard, or anarchist client was “defending their self” when a cop is injured or killed by said negro, communist, libtard or anarchist should be immediately disbarred and forced to live in Detroit, the south side of Chicago, or Atlanta. That would straighten out a lot of this silliness in short order.

  • Sick of it

    They can spout this nonsense all day long. The white workers of the world are going to unite against the union bosses and other Communists who are trying to wipe us off the face of the Earth! Start your “class war”…with the welfare class. See what happens.

  • Steve_in_Vermont

    I doubt very much that Gordon Barnes will be arming himself and leading the charge with the “armed protestors”. How easy it is to call for others to do violence in a cause for which they will not engage. He must be aware that there are more than 300 million guns in America, most owned by whites who will not hesitate to protect their homes and communities. These rioters, now confined to a small (primarily black) area, will find a very hostile welcome should they stray into a predominately white area with the intention to do violence.

    • Sid Ishus

      Whites will not fight it it comes to their neighborhoods. We will follow the same pattern of the past 50 odd years and flee. The only time a White will even talk tough is anonymously online or after carefully looking over their shoulder to be sure no one will be offended. We were neutered long ago.

      • Steve_in_Vermont

        Perhaps where you live, but people in my state will not flee. More than 50% of us are armed, that’s true of my neighbors, and we will not be run out by a group of rabble. I doubt, for us, that will ever occur. Most people couldn’t even find Vermont on a map. For those living closer to the problems, that’s up to them to decide whether to fight or flee.

        • John R

          With respect, there are not enough blacks in your state to cause any trouble. I live in a community where there are a lot of blacks, just outside Philadelphia. My area is a lot like Ferguson, but our remaining Whites and our police, don’t take no crap.

      • Speak for yourself.

        • Sid Ishus

          Talk is cheap, good whiskey costs money. Show me where Whites mount a resistance.

          • The Bundy Ranch is a good recent example. And more than 1,000 whites marched in defense of their 2nd Amendment rights in Washington state very recently. Didn’t you hear about it in the MSM?


            I guess all those guns and ammo are flying off the shelves for no reason. Whites won’t resist? I wouldn’t take that bet.

          • Ella

            Any group will fight if they’re pushed far enough. Certain people have discussed that they fear a backlash soon from whites due to mass immigration and its ridiculous demands, media onslaughts, dwindling m.c. wealth, and education decline. Keeping taxes down kept the m.c. from revolting in my opinion, but mass inflation will activate us.

          • I agree. You know what they say about people with nothing left to lose.

          • Sid Ishus

            “These rioters, now confined to a small (primarily black) area, will find a very hostile welcome should they stray into a predominately white area

          • My point was that whites will indeed stand up for themselves when pushed far enough. Most whites can still largely avoid the brown and black hordes that are swarming our country. As that changes, expect to see fewer and fewer whites care if some insane leftist calls them the dreaded r-word. It’s already happening, in fact.

    All this victim bull-crap stuffed into one sentence of superfluous words. Is he for real? The “only viable option” for these great contributers to society is to loot and burn down their own businesses. They must be SO upset then, that they are forced into such criminal behavior that goes against their nature…

    • John R

      Whites are the new Jews, and these riots are the equivalent of “Kristal Naught.”

  • One thing that is lost on Karl Marx Jr here is that the essence of the state (government) is a legal monopoly on the use of deadly and other force.

  • A Freespeechzone

    Notice they know better to contain their violence to areas they know they can get away with it—-many areas, despite neutered LE, will, without hesitation, invoke self defense–lethal, if necessary.

    Those in power have LE so hamstrung that they can do little–look at the looting and burning that took place while they watched.

    Your safety is your responsibility per the SCOUS in 2005.

  • TruthBeTold

    I saw a ‘defender of the movement’ on the news today talking about the protests continuing.

    I do hope they keep protesting so people can see them for what they are.

    If I lived in one of these areas with protesters and I had a bullhorn, when they were all on the ground I would be screaming ‘Cop Killers’.

  • Simonetta

    That boy sure does use a lot of big words….quixotic… hyperbolic…myopic… Too bad he hasn’t yet mastered (opps, did I say a bad word?) the art of paragraph structure. The art of writing this kind of dribble is to mix satire, sarcasm, moral outrage, and folksy punditry into a unique and easily readable style. That way your audience can chose to overlook the idiocy of your editorial opinion, should they be so inclined.

    For style, go back and reread H.L. Mencken, P.J. O’Rourke, and Florence King. Hell, throw in some Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin for color and balance. For vocabulary, no one tops William F. Buckley, the 20th century’s walking dictionary. James Howard Kunstler can always have me highlighting and googling a word that I’m never seen before, but is etymologically precise.


    The guy has the same problem that has plagued all the top 10 percent IQ of the community. How to be down with the bro’s ‘n ho’s, while at the same time, keeping them distant (and yourself safe). It’s easy. Just write a lot of prose that is completely inconsistent with your social position. Which gives all the other people in your social class the suspicion that you have some kind of secret knowledge that they can’t understand, because it is so transparently contrary to the values and practices of your social class. And that this secret knowledge or wisdom comes from the coincidence of your having the same skin color or past ethnic origin as the lower class people that you are so inexplicably defending.

    Works like a charm, first time, every time. Thousands of Black Studies PhD’s and tenured professorships are directly resultant from it. And if it worked all of them, then it will work for you too. And it should, because you deserve it. You’re the crown of creation of the community.

    But it’s all B.S., and you know it. But it doesn’t matter as long as you’re the one who’s getting paid, and they’re the ones who are getting killed. Right On! Power to the People!

      • anony

        I pulled that quote as well. You are absolutely right. This quote is proof-positive that these riots are not at all about the black killings, but about world revolution that has been going on since the mid-nineteenth century if not before.

        These revolutionaries give not one whit about the blacks but about attaining power “by any means necessary”.

    • MBlanc46

      The only thing I might disagree with is that they know it’s bull. A lot of this sort believe their own propaganda.

  • Brian

    Protesting has become a part of the college experience like going Cancun or joining a frat used to be. These suburban white kids saw their older cousins and siblings protest the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan a decade ago. Some of the older members of their family got to protest during the 60s. It’s a right of passage. “Hey Dad, what did you fight for when you were in college?”

    All of them have dreams of being Che Guevara dancing in their head, so there is a constant pressure to radicalize, to go a step further.

    • Sick of it

      Liberals were not the only ones questioning the invasion of Afghanistan after we were attacked by Saudis.

      • 1G25

        Very good point.

    • bilderbuster

      When I went in the 80’s there weren’t any protests on campus.
      The Jewish frat put up a stupid fake concentration camp “Holocaust” memorial kind of thing with some mannequins behind the wire but it eventually was taken down.
      The only semi radicals we had were the LBJ/FDR loving liberal professors who weren’t really admired by their students.
      Thank goodness I studied in Miami.
      Too many fun things to do off campus.
      I can only imagine what life would be like being snowed in on some northern campus with SJWs all winter.

    • Daniel McGrath

      Protesting the invasion of Iraq was a good call. No matter why you were protesting it. 5,000+ white boys dead. 2 million Christians driven out of Iraq. Caliphate reestablished. That’s Bush’s anti white legacy in essence. It’s not like he barred Muslims from migrating to the US.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    Imagine the following:

    “The time for peace has passed. The acts of looting, destruction of property and violence directed towards state representatives is not only warranted, it is necessary”

    In Support of Violence, Gun Owners of America

    What would be the fallout?

    Moronic hypocrites like Gordon Barnes wish to suppress speech via government-enforced hate speech laws for anything they don’t like then scream Racism or First Amendment (most likely both) when called out on anything they say.

    If M. Barnes feels “the time for peace has passed,” he should be out on the front lines of the violent protests, confronting the oppressive police he hates, leading the way instead of hiding in his ivory tower giving orders.

    Most likely, he’ll be offered an administrative position in Eric the Red’s DOJ

    • Fighting_Northern_Spirit

      I was amused at his idea of the “anti-democratic nature of the grand jury process” – so we should put it to a popular vote whether or not to indict someone? If so, I’d like to vote to have Gordon Barnes thrown in jail for treason and sedition.

      • Reading the article gave me a headache due to this kind of thing. Sheesh, the future is in bright hands – is it not?! It is worrying to think what the future holds with these people demographically running the show, to say the least.

    • I like it!

      I definitely got the impression that this blow-hard is attempting to be an intellectual thinker, has swallowed a myriad of cliché phrases and words, then jumbles them neatly together into incoherence.

      • JohnEngelman

        What should you expect from someone who got into college because of affirmative action, and who got easy A’s majoring in Black Studies?

  • IKUredux

    Mr. Barnes, gosh, you use some high falutin’ words! “New, more egalitarian social paradigm”. It’s called COMMUNISM. What? You too chicken to say the word? Did you have to prove that your edumacation learned you somethin’?

    Oh, and by the way, Gordon. The United States didn’t have a “golden age”, we had a WHITE AGE. And, you can take that to the capitalist bank.

    A pseudo-marxist “justification”. Steal or destroy the property earned or owned by others. Categorize the police, army and civil authorities as tools of the boss class. Use the blacks as cannon fodder for revolution – for a new (or perhaps not quite so new) boss class.

  • TomIron361

    The time for peace has passed,
    I pretty much agree with that. The thing about black people is they have no real idea of shooting. They spray bullets around and obviously they hit their targets some of the time. But many times, they hit people who have nothing to do with their anger. But with white people, shooting is a passion. White people hit the object they’re shooting at. When this all get’s going, blacks are going to learn what it means to be a sharpshooter – the hard way.

    And supposed someone here, or any pro-White paper or website, wrote something justifying violence toward black people? What would the government’s response be? Who then, is really the privileged group in our society?

    • I believe that’s illegal and punishable by hate crime laws.

    For a professional writer he’s not very adept, but his biggest problem is his muddled thinking. If he were white I’d regard him as some kind of ill-educated screwball.

    But since he’s black what he has to say and how he says it is typical of the average black teleprompter reader.

    Like 99% of his tribe he just doesn’t get it. The erroneous conclusions they draw not only reveal an inability to logic in coherent terms, but clearly show why black societies the world over are backward hell holes. It also indicates that they’re burdened with some kind of mental disorder, probably paranoia.

    Lamenting the shooting of blacks on the attack, armed or unarmed, and calling them murders is utter nonsense, but doesn’t that tie in with many other silly things the vast majority believe, like the myth that the government spread aids and drugs in their neighborhoods to kill them all off and that the Levees in N.O. were blown up to drown the ones living there?

    Or how about thinking Angel Food Cake and Devil’s Food cake are racist names designated, because one is white and the other dark? Or that a “black hole in space” denigrates blacks, because they see it as having unfavorable racial overtones?

    And such thinking extends to their claims of accomplishments and is just as silly, like half the Roman Senate was black; the Egyptians were black; and as Sharpton said, “White folks was [sic] in caves while we were building empires…. We taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and those Greek homos ever got around to it.”

    And blacks believe the reason black accomplishments and genius go unrecognized is because white people have been busy night and day diligently working to cover them all up then taking credit for everything themselves……all day every day for thousands of years. If a white person held similar beliefs as blacks, he’d be regarded as a certifiable paranoid schizophrenic.

    I’ve read posts and articles from many blacks, and heard them saying similar things on T.V., which indicates how these nonsensical beliefs are common throughout the black communities around the country. The worst of it, though, is that these kinds of fabrications are responsible for Black Terrorism wherein they loot, burn, assault, murder and destroy.

    And the above article is an excellent example of a black calling for action after ignoring the facts and drawing illogical conclusions.

    But these examples hit on just a very few of their absurdities. A person who wanted to do the work could dredge up enough examples to fill a book.

    Living with blacks is like having an enemy within who are all lunatics.

    • Harry

      Blacks feel that they own the word ‘black’. That being the case, then they are the judges of whether the word is being improperly used or not. Back in the 60s there was a general consensus amongst them that they wanted to be called ‘black’ instead of ‘negro’ or ‘colored’. Everyone was cool with that; it wasn’t a big deal. Now the word ‘black’ is practically a copyright.

  • Korean guy

    In Canada, I was forced to see the photo of officer Wilson ten times a day in the media but when it comes to the two New York police officers, the media is not showing the photo of the shooter at all. It only talks endlessly about how wonderful the two New York officers were, and only shows the photos of the two murdered NY officers, and how the family members of the officers were coping with it following the murder crime. Anyone else here on AmRen in Canada will tell you the same thing.

    • Harry

      They (the media) are not going vilify the shooter. The closest they will ever get to condemning him will be to call him a tortured soul who in the end, took his own life out of remorse for what he had done.

    ” Imagine if Wilson was the aggressor in the situation–which is more likely than Brown being the aggressor–and Brown defended himself with deadly force, mortally wounding Wilson.”

      “What kind of bizarre, make-believe world do these people live in?”

      It shows us more than anything why we need to rid ourselves of these people.

      Given how surreal this has become, “Off with their heads! Off with their heads!” seems to capture the moment.

  • AmericanCitizen

    “It doesn’t matter if Brown robbed a convenience store, or even if he assaulted Wilson.”

    That statement is all you need to know about race-baiters and Liberals and their media stooges. Facts are not necessary to promote the desired narrative of racist police officers victimizing innocent blacks. Jared has spoken on this topic before, and it’s scary that it’s true. We have people marching and protesting and advocating violence – all over a false narrative. The martyrdom of Mike Brown is astounding – no evidence exists that he would have been anything more than another ghetto mope lounging around, getting high, and doing nothing constructive. Yet he is upheld as the ideal of the innocent black man, killed for his skin color and nothing else, a symbol of the oppressive American society.

    I don’t know about you, but I feel that this race-baiting and lying by the Liberal Left is going to end up blowing up far worse than NYC has already endured. Terrible times when the forces of law and order are demonized in public. I guess Libs expect you to dial a thug instead of 911 to report crime and receive assistance.

      Substitute “Therefore” for “Yet” and delete “innocent” and you have the truth.

    This is all part of the plan. The real forces behind all of the strife know full well what they are doing. Speaking of our time Jesus said, “For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:…” The Greek word for nation here is ethnos. The rulers know that the races should not be mixed but they do it to bring about violence.

      We could read the Bible because the book of Revelation might just apply to our time period.

      • Conrad

        A note on this…
        It was Jesuit Teilhard de Chardin [very popular in new Age circles]
        Teilhard wrote incessantly about Omega,
        and the future of man. He had a spiritualistic pantheistic vision of
        “the final stages and final state of the earth of man. Teilhard
        saw all of creation, especially man, converging into the Omega Point,
        at which “mankind as a whole will leave behind the limitations of
        time, space and matter. . .” A Path Through Teilhard’s
        Phenomenon, p. 161 It is this age-old concept of pantheistic
        spiritualism that has been subtly packaged and developed into a New
        Age religion. Everything converges into one—good and evil, truth
        and error, right and wrong.
        Teilhard then merges his pantheism with what he calls “Christian doctrine” and states: “As we know, the belief that the
        human individual cannot perfect himself or fully exist except through
        the >> organic unification of all men<< in God is essential
        and fundamental to Christian doctrine.

    Well, clearly, the author, Gordon Barne’s, thinking is off track. I continue to be mystified by how people (such as this author) can think the way that he does. It really is mind boggling and disturbing.

  • Lkoehn

    No doubt that we should prosecute an innocent cop and discard the grand jury process all to appease a part of the population that is unhappy with law and order and prefers rioting and looting. How about we start shooting rioters and looters and teach that, that kind of behavior exacts an extreme penalty if for no other reason then to protect the taxpayers who prefer to live in peace and safety? It is not like rioters and looters have any value to society.

  • The truth is that like the article author states: violence here is a good thing. His arguments as to why the “violence is good” is so full of denial of verifiable facts and contradictions I wonder if even the author believes it.

    The orgy of lootings, burnings, and violence witnessed in Ferguson is good because it awakens more whites to asking “what is wrong with these people”? He assaulted a police officer and tried to get his gun. Not once but twice. The grand jury deliberati

    • Ella

      In some odd way, Blacks are aware of losing benefits, more low-end jobs and voice as Latinos take up the sob stories and charity cases. Other groups will not fall for Black tactics and will be much harsher towards their violent behaviours. Looting and riots will progress much worse as they decline below Mexicans.

  • Barnes is saying that the social contract – such as it ever existed between blacks and whites – has expired. Goody! When do we get started? I don’t mind admitting that the prospect has me as happy as a witch in a broom factory, though my cackle at the prospect is considerably less pleasant than that in the hilarious TV commercial.

    I would much rather be left alone to the sort of work I did this evening, making a nice serving tray out of thin pine I scrounged, carefully bending the edges up with a heat-gun. The outside I will stain and varnish, and the inside will receive alternating layers of varnish and a nice paint I discovered at the hardware store that dries to resemble old, hammered iron. It’ll look like smooth, ancient metal on the inside and beautiful wood on the outside; I suppose I could even paint some rust streaks on the inside, mainly on the edges of the leaves. I shaped the upcurved lips to look like the interleaved petals of a flower. This was just whimsy. I’ll probably give it to my mother when it is finished.

    I prefer turning out nice household items like this, but I really don’t mind doing “that other thing”. I live in a decent neighborhood, in a house I paid off ten years ago. I like to think I have retired from orcdom, but whenever I read someone like Barnes, I want to deliver them what’s behind Curtain Number Three: the all-night firing squads.

    My old tomahawk is also sharp enough to shave with again.

  • Harry

    No one would ever believe you if you claimed to have used the word “niggardly”. How often do you see it used in modern literature? What I’m getting at is if you were attacked as retribution for using that word, I doubt that assault charges would even be filed.

  • Broz Tito

    It is interesting how micro climates of looting and pillaging occurred during the recent protests. The destruction is mostly localized in distressed neighborhoods. If the violence jumps to the burbs it will be met with direct action and quickly abate. I hope it never comes to this but as Mr. Barnes suggests there are some people/protest groups salivating at the prospect of more violence. Want to loot and kill, please stay in your own locales…

  • Michael Robert Ryan

    Yes, Mr. Barnes, quickly, please.

  • TheMule61

    I urge all white progressives to go to the nearest poor, predominately black neighborhood you can find and start organizing protests there. Drive there with your cars and wear your nicest clothes. Use your cellphones to facilitate communications in your efforts. Walk around all over. The residents there will really appreciate your presence. Remember to bring lots of cash because not a lot of businesses there accept credit cards. Remind the people there that violence is a good thing and that the white man is keeping them down.

    • Sloppo

      I hope you don’t mind that I passed on your advice on a site which seems to be run by “progressives”. I hope they follow your instructions.

    But also notice the narrative. There is only the option between the overzealous and violent police, or the justice system failed us. There couldnt possibly be anyone out there who believe that St. Sandwich got what he deserved based on his own decisions and actions, could there?

  • John R

    “The death of Michael Brown has spurred this process and has fomented mass discontent with the government. Furthermore, the events in Ferguson have fomented the most visible resistance to the status quo in the United States. What is needed now is to take the next step from indiscriminate attacks to ones directly pointed at state power as well as at the lackeys and apologists who allow it to prosper. The transformative potential emanating from the protestors’ violence in Ferguson and elsewhere will not help recoup some “golden age” in the United States–there never was one–but can hopefully prove to be the kernel of radically altered social relations.”

    Speaking tongue in cheek, and not advocating violence, at least not physical violence, I can say that this statement is actually correct. These events in Ferguson just might be the start of a new age in race relations. We White Americans just may finally wake up and end this fifty year failed social experiment in equality and integration.

    • Ella

      Near half of these white people will continue to be murdered and robbed blind and yet, still refuse to accept the “new” truth that was never promoted by the media. Whites have our own “split” between leftist social policies and individualism, so we avoid the biggest problem. Conservatives don’t want to live in a lawless chaotic highly-diversified environment where we are under constant attack.
