Are We Losing Our Republic?

BlackMobby Jerry Richardson   8/20/14
Remember what Benjamin Franklin said after a woman asked him what kind of government they had given us?

“Upon exiting the Constitutional Convention. Benjamin Franklin was asked by a woman, ‘What kind of government have you given us?’ Franklin responded with one of the most famous quotations in history, ‘A Republic if you can keep it.’
Benjamin Franklin

As you watch the behavior of many of the collection of so-called US citizens gathered in Ferguson, Missouri; you have to wonder how good a chance we have of keeping “a Republic.”

Daily, we have witnessed savages (there is no kinder label for them) on television pillaging and vandalizing a city supposedly in support of their “protest”; and then in the same arena we discover a voter-recruitment drive organized by members of the Demagogue party:

“Activists set up voter registration tables near a makeshift memorial for Brown and the QuikTrip convenience store that has become a gathering base for protesters. The efforts were organized by local clergy with the help of the Revs. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.”   —Voter Registration

The bogus calls for “justice for Michael Brown” hypocritically ring-out amidst the more authentic street-chants for the death of Officer Darren Wilson.  These emotional cries for a rush to judgment aren’t just confined locally to the streets of Ferguson—of course not; this is a nationally-organized domestic-terror activity.  And, that amazing technological threat to civil discourse, Twitter, is helping carry the ball nationally:

“On Friday, police identified Darren Wilson as the officer who shot 18-year-old Michael Brown, sparking days of violent protests. Shortly after the announcement, Twitter erupted with the obligatory calls for death. ‘[D]arren [W]ilson deserves to die,’ one person said. Others made their feelings known on Twitter using the hashtag ‘#killdarrenwilson.’ “   —Hashtag

And what is the purpose of this organized terror activity?

Whatever the currently stated rationale, whatever the current spin, whatever the current excuses; lurking underneath the civil breakdown in Ferguson, Missouri is the fundamental ideological purpose stated succinctly by our leading community-agitator team, Barack and Michelle Obama:

“We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”
 — Barack Obama, October 30, 2008

“We are going to have to change our conversation; we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation.”
Michelle Obama, May 14, 2008

The Obamas have remained unwaveringly true to their stated goal of “fundamentally transforming the United States”; and because of that, civilization today, in many parts of the world including America is facing terror, disruption, and destruction.

We’ve come “a long way baby”!

We certainly have come a long way from the time when the need for virtue and self-restraint was thoroughly understood by the founders, and especially by a President:

“Today, many people think of liberty in terms of licentiousness, that is, the freedom to do whatever one wants. Washington and the other Founders, however, knew that for citizens to live in a free society with limited government, each citizen must be able to control himself; otherwise, we would need a police state — that is, a large, unlimited government — to maintain safety and order.
—-
As George Washington said in his First Inaugural Address, “there is no truth more thoroughly established than that there exists in the economy and course of nature an indissoluble union between virtue and happiness.” Liberty does not mean being free to squander one’s energies on reckless self-indulgence. Understanding this distinction is what the Founders understood as the moral conditions of freedom.”   —
Liberty

Obama, and the Demagogue (aka Democrat) party, want and are agitating for “a large, unlimited government.”  We will unfortunately need to have that if the anarchy we are witnessing in Ferguson, Missouri spreads.  A Republic cannot survive where organized “reckless self-indulgence” as demonstrated by an inability of “each citizen…to control himself” is tolerated in abundance.

I sincerely pray that what we are seeing in Ferguson is only a passing shadow, and not an adumbration.

    I’ve read that a lot of the usual suspects (anarchists, professional grievance-mongers, etc.) are coming in from other parts of the country, including Oakland. As you said, “this is a nationally-organized domestic-terror activity.”

    What we can deduce from this is that many blacks are living a separatist life. It’s not quite “separate but equal,” for many blacks do not want anything to do with normal American society. This was the “Black Liberation Theology” (Marxist in origin) preached by Pastor Wright, for example.

    Blacks are surely on another kind of plantation. And whose fault is that? Well, it’s almost entirely the fault of the Democrats who exploit and incite racial paranoia in order to gain votes, although it’s long past time for blacks themselves to assume their moral responsibility for this.

    There is a great evil in our land. This is why I say no person of good conscience can vote for the party that is spreading Communism, disharmony, dependency, debt, and racial grievance.

    Many blacks are living in a totally parallel universe. Their ignorance and prejudice is cutting them off from the rest of civil society. And there are a lot of stupid white people who are either moral cowards and won’t confront the issue or who simply like indicting America continually, and without end, as “the racist country.”

    This won’t end well, and every time a black mob of savages does something like this they reaffirm the warning and advice given to us by John Derbyshire about avoiding crowds of blacks.

    This is the reality. It’s considered highly offensive to say that blacks are now on a new Democratic plantation, but they surely are. And they are being exploited as they were before, but the chains aren’t physical. And be sure to arm yourself, because I don’t see a peaceful resolution to this savagery. Blacks are not going to be calmly talked down from their well-oiled sense of victimhood and their well-ingrained bigotry towards whites and others.

      It’s a matter of self-segregation. Ferguson has become mostly black; this will increase as whites depart a city where they aren’t wanted. They’ll take with them the small businesses that the inhabitants rely on. The problem is that too many of them really want a race war they think they can win (which may be true, at least for the corrupt, malevolent leaders such as the Obama Gang, as long as it’s simply a long-festering problem that encourages blacks to continue to vote themselves into the plantation).

  2. Timothy Lane says:

    If a black cop kills a white under dubious circumstances, there will be no riot or even serious protests (unless maybe the cop is convicted — in which case blacks might riot). But if a white cop kills a black under dubious circumstances, there will be at least a loud protest and quite often rioting. I would like to sympathize with those who lose their children to violence — but their own behavior makes this difficult or even impossible. (Brown’s parents invited Sharpton into Ferguson, for example.)

    Note that the easy police presence had quieted things down — until they revealed that Brown was no innocent. The revelation of his crime was very relevant; it certainly affected Brown’s (and Dorian Johnson’s) state of mind when stopped that they were returning home from a minor robbery, and it appears that Wilson suspected after initiating the stop that Brown was the thief. Since the black goal is not justice but punishment regardless of the facts, anything that gets in the way of their narrative makes them angry. (One must also realize that the rioters aren’t protestors; Brown is merely their excuse. The proper response would be “shoot to kill”; they wouldn’t find it so much fun if they seriously risked death.)

    One might also note Governor Nixon (a former state Attorney General, who therefore should know better) saying that he wants a “vigorous prosecution” of Wilson. He has no more interest in the facts of the case than the blacks whose votes he wants to encourage. (Most likely he expects the policemen to vote Republican anyway, and the FOP is likely to base its endorsement in the end on union considerations, as has often happened in the past.)

    Mob rule, the great uneasiness of the Founders, is where despots, poseurs, and men of low character find their place in the world.

  4. Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

    In nice synchrony with the subject at hand, Thomas Sowell has an excellent article that’s just out: The Media and the Mob:

    Race is the wild card in all this. The idea that you can tell who is innocent and who is guilty by the color of their skin is a notion that was tried out for generations, back in the days of the Jim Crow South. I thought we had finally rejected that kind of legalized lynch law. But apparently it has only been put under new management.

    • Timothy Lane says:

      Unfortunately, this is how professional liberals operate. They aren’t “rushing to judgment” in Ferguson by their standards; Wilson is white and Brown was black, and no other facts are relevant to them. This was true in the Duke lacrosse case, in Sanford, and in many other incidents. No matter how often they prove to be wrong, they will never learn because what we consider justice is of no concern to them. They only care about group justice, which is based on which group is the underdog (and thus the victim) and which the overdog (and thus the villain). Of course, if the overdog is clearly liberal, then all bets are off. It’s all politics, all the time, with them.
