For the article preceding this one read: The Black-Victimology Coalition. For the major part of several decades, Victimology has been a growing ideology in the US. Who is involved in this despicable activity? The major players are an ideologically affiliated group that I chose to call the Black-Victimology Coalition (BVC).
So who are these groups?
Here is a list of the major elements of the Black-Victimology Coalition (BVC), identified collectively for the first time anywhere in my preceding article:
- Victimology-media (Such as NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, NYT, and Wash. Post).
- Political-enablers (Such as Barack Obama and Eric Holders).
- Communist-agitators (Both black and white).
- Race-baiters (Such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson).
- Victimology-organization (The NAACP).
- Liberation-theologists (Such as James Cone and Jeremiah Wright).
- Thugs* (low-level criminal types who want to loot, steal, and mug)
*Note: I agree with my colleague, Timothy Lane concerning Thugs:
As for your coalition, I would note that the last group (thugs, which includes a lot of anarchists)…aren’t really part of the coalition; they just take advantage of the ensuing chaos whenever the coalition creates a lynch mob situation, as they did in Ferguson (and to a lesser extent Sanford). —Timothy Lane
The serious danger that the above listed BVC poses to American society is that they are collectively enabling black-protest tactics that are, in essence, no different from the tactics of terrorists or ransom-kidnappers.
The essence of terrorism is contained in two actions: 1) Demands with Threats; 2) Acts of violence to enforce demands. Terrorism requires both these activities. Violence alone does not give terrorism its frightful influence; violence must be preceded or accompanied by demands and threats, and the threats must be creditable.
As to be expected, the Victimology-media gives very little publicity to the fact that the Ferguson riots were infiltrated, and exploited by Communists. The Victimology-media which is owned and operated by left-leaning progressives has never broken-off their love-affair with Communists and Communism. After all Communism is the ultimate in Socialism, the progressive dream.
As I wrote before, out of town radicals are flocking to Ferguson, Missouri to do nothing but create chaos and violence which they hope will further the downfall of capitalism worldwide. One of the agitators is Gregory “Joey” Johnson. Now meet one of his partners in crime: Travis Morales, a communist and proud of it.
Here he argues with local Ferguson protestors: You can hear Brother Anthony Shahid say, “You’re not gonna hurt our kids.” Morales shouts, “No, they’re hurting our kids. They’re hurting our kids, everyday.” “They” being the Ferguson police, or as Morales would call them, “the oppressive pigs doing the bidding of their capitalist overlords” or something similar… Morales reported to his communist readers that he was heading to Ferguson with a comrade of his, Carl Dix.

Aiding the background for victimization and Marxist cooperation is Liberation Theology. The two best known advocates of this Marxist-inspired theology are James Cone (the father of Black Liberation Theology) and Jeremiah Wright (former pastor of Barack Obama) who famously said in one of his sermons: “God Damn America.”
The echoes of Cone’s theology bleed through the now infamous, anti-Hilary excerpt by Rev. Wright. Clinton is among the oppressing class (“rich white people”) and is incapable of understanding oppression (“ain’t never been called a n-gg-r”) but Jesus knows what it was like because he was “a poor black man” oppressed by “rich white people.” While Black Liberation Theology is not main stream in most black churches, many pastors in Wright’s generation are burdened by Cone’s categories which laid the foundation for many to embrace Marxism and a distorted self-image of the perpetual “victim.”
Black Liberation Theology actually encourages a victim mentality among blacks. John McWhorters’ book Losing the Race, will be helpful here. Victimology, says McWhorter, is the adoption of victimhood as the core of one’s identity — for example, like one who suffers through living in “a country and who lived in a culture controlled by rich white people.” It is a subconscious, culturally inherited affirmation that life for blacks in America has been in the past and will be in the future a life of being victimized by the oppression of whites. In today’s terms, it is the conviction that, 40 years after the Civil Rights Act, conditions for blacks have not substantially changed. As Wright intimates, for example, scores of black men regularly get passed over by cab drivers.
Reducing black identity to “victimhood” distorts the reality of true progress. For example, was Obama a victim of widespread racial oppression at the hand of “rich white people” before graduating from Columbia University, Harvard Law School magna cum laude, or after he acquired his estimated net worth of $1.3 million? How did “rich white people” keep Obama from succeeding? If Obama is the model of an oppressed black man, I want to be oppressed next! With my graduate school debt my net worth is literally negative $52,659.

Last but not least in our line-up of the Black-Victimology Coalition (BVC) are the foot-soldiers of BVC violence: Thugs*.
*Note: Thugs are not really part of the BVC; they are just “useful idiots.”
The BVC foot-soldiers do not even have to be paid for their services; they provide their own compensation by looting innocent business owners. In addition they engage in general destruction and coercion of bystanders.
<blockquote>A Ferguson, Missouri protesters walks with a homemade Molotov cocktail during the looting Friday night. Looting and rioting broke out again in Ferguson, Missouri in the wee hours of Saturday morning. In an on scene LiveStream video report by Vice News reporter Tim Pool, masked looters could be heard menacing independent video reporters—ordering them to back off from filming the looting. Another reporter witnessed looters threatening reporters with Molotov Cocktails.
There were reports that news crews from CNN and Al Jazeera America were threatened by looters. Unlike the collective media storm over the brief detention by Ferguson police of two reporters a few nights back, there was no outcry from the media of Hamas-like treatment by the Ferguson looters.
—Looting in Ferguson
Clearly, Michael Brown has become an excuse, not just to go looting but to chant “Time to kill a cop” at the police, throw bottles of urine at them, set off Molotov cocktails, and maybe even get a few seconds of TV time. “If it wasn’t for the looting,” said one man, “we wouldn’t get the attention.”
—Understanding the Ferguson Riots </blockquote>
Not surprisingly, the Ferguson rioting has spread to adjacent St. Louis:
The St. Louis Wrecking Crew Was Back Out on the Streets Thursday night. The protesters smashed home windows, smashed police car windows, torched a stolen US flag, attacked reporters, and smashed up a South Grand business.
This was after gun felon Vonderrit Myers, Jr was shot by police on Wednesday.

Although an act of terrorism can be carried out by one individual, generally speaking, there is a team or an affiliated group involved. Individual elements play different roles ranging anywhere from publicizing (news media) through enabling (politically, philosophically, and theologically) all the way down to committing overt violence. But their collective effort is still terrorism, if it involves the two essentials actions:
1) Demands with Threats; 2) Acts of violence to enforce demands.
So what is an accurate description of the recent activities of the BVC?
Answer: Homeland terrorism.
PS (Post Script):
I have tremendous respect and admiration for the growing number of conservative blacks who are willing to put themselves at risk (receive threats and accusations of “uncle tom” and other such nonsense) by speaking-out concerning the dangers of Progressivism whether from blacks or from whites. Here’s a short list, in no particular order, of some of my favorite black Americans. I read a major part of what these writers publish or have to say publically:
- Patricia L. Dickson: She is rapidly becoming one of my favorite bloggers. She publishes articles on Stubborn Things and Patricia’s Corner. If you haven’t read some of her excellent articles, you should.
One of her excellent, recent articles on Stubborn Things is
Poverty in the Black Community is the Result of Culture, Not Racism;
and one of her excellent, recent, articles on Patricia’s Corner is
The Christian Message vs Social Justice
- Thomas Sowell: He’s a Senior Fellow on Public Policy at the Hoover Institution who’s one of the most popular conservative columnists in America. This man is a power-house thinker and writer; go to his website to see listings of his enormous written output: Thomas Sowell.
To get just a taste of his wisdom read one of his recent articles:
The Media and the Mob
- Allen West: The first black Republican congressman from Florida since 1876. Keynote speaker for CPAC in 2011. There are many things to admire about Allen B. West. He is an outspoken Christian, Conservative, retired military Lt. Colonel, strong on religious liberties, strong on 2nd Amendment rights, and I think he is a superb, and needed honest politician. You can read more about Allen West on his website:
Allen B West Steadfast and Loyal.
One of his latest articles is a must-read for defenders of religious liberty for pastors:
Christian persecution in the US: Openly gay Houston mayor demands pastors turn over sermons
- Walter Williams: The professor at George Mason University is a popular columnist and a fill-in radio host on the Rush Limbaugh program. Walter Williams is another very prolific, Conservative thinker and writer. As a sample of his writing read his thoughtful article on Multiculturalism is a Failure.
Here are other notable Conservatives that I read, but less frequently than those above.
- Clarence Thomas: Supreme Court Justice.
- Condi Rice: She’s the head of the Global Center for Business and the Economy at Stanford, a former foreign policy advisor to George W. Bush, and the first black woman to ever be Secretary of State.
- Larry Elder: The sage from South Central is a popular columnist and syndicated talk radio host.
- Star Parker: She’s an increasingly popular syndicated columnist who ran for Congress in California in 2010 and lost.
- Ward Connerly: The founder of the American Civil Rights Institute and an activist dedicated to fighting racial quotas.
- Deroy Murdock: He’s a syndicated columnist, political talking head, and contributing editor with National Review Online.
- Jesse Lee Peterson: The founder of BOND, television personality, and radio host.
