Attorney General Eric Holder is going to Ferguson while America is going to Hell. Last night chaos continued to reign in Ferguson, Missouri as the protests/riots over the shooting of Michael Brown are still going strong. This despite the a renewed presence of militarized police in the streets who are now augmented by the National Guard. Not only is the unrest ongoing but as in America's Middle Eastern wars the local situation on the ground is attracting participants who have a beef with the government from elsewhere.
According to a story in The Guardian entitled“Ferguson: 31 arrested as huge show of force fails to quell unrest”:
A massive show of force by riot police and newly arrived national guard units failed to quell agitators who fired gunshots and threw Molotov cocktails on Monday night and early on Tuesday morning.
Missouri national guard troops entered the protest zone and police ordered the media to leave as officers in armoured vehicles fired teargas and stun grenades and engaged with gunmen.
The mayhem dashed hopes that the deployment of the national guard, and greater community efforts to control the small minority of violent protesters, would ease a crisis which flared after a local police officer shot Michael Brown, 18, on 9 August.
At a 2.20am press conference, Captain Ron Johnson of the Missouri state highway patrol said 31 people had been arrested, some who had come from as far afield as New York and California. He said two people were shot and displayed two handguns and a Molotov cocktail he said had been confiscated by police.
With no end in sight and the growing potential that protests will eventually spread, possibly igniting the long-simmering anger in America, the million dollar question is: when will the government begin to call the protesters "terrorists"? The day has long been coming when the truth about the phony war on terror is revealed and that it has always been a war on us. There never has been a real threat of an attack by foreigners on the Homeland because if that were the case the borders wouldn't be so porous. All of that post 9/11 implementation of the surveillance state, the militarizing of police and the gutting of the Constitution has been done to protect the criminals running the system on the day when it all comes crashing down.
Events in Ferguson provide Leviathan exactly what it needs which is an excuse to begin to label domestic political dissenters as "terrorists". The definition of which has become even more vague and potentially all-inclusive during the Obama regime than it ever did under Bush-Cheney. The silence of liberals over each of Obama's increasingly bold acts in the accumulation of executive power is deafening.
A 2012 study that was funded by the Department of Homeland Security and conducted by the organization Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism or START entitled “Hot Spots of Terrorism and Other Crimes in the United States” identified sovereign citizen or other pro-Constitution groups as being potential domestic "terrorists". There is also the infamous MIAC report which ironically stands for the Missouri Information Analysis Center which conflates libertarians and other anti-government groups with right-wing extremists. Under the MIAC study signs that could have one scrutinized as a potential "terrorist" would be displaying a Gadsden flag (attention tea partiers), being critics of government alphabet soup agencies like DHS, ATF or FBI and even having a Ron Paul bumper sticker. None of this of course bothers the liberal hypocrites now that it is their guy in the White House and the jackboot is temporarily on the other foot.
Former Obama chief of staff and current Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel once remarked: "You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before". The events in Ferguson are a perfect opportunity to lock the police state into place forever and begin to get the sheeple conditioned to view their fellow Americans as "terrorists".
