If you give Fools a Stage they will Perform.
There is a very real issue in Ferguson. In fact, there are several.
First, there is the possibility that a young man was killed by a police officer without cause. There is also the possibility that the young man was killed with cause.
Second, A small group of criminals has decided to use this event to loot and burn businesses.
Third, a gathering of Anti-American activists from across the US have found their way to a part of St. Louis they never knew existed.
So what do we do?
We, as Americans, honor the right of those who question the Police… and for that matter the Government… regarding the death of this young man. Agree with those who believe the police killed him in cold blood or not, peaceful display of concern… anger… and pain remain part of our fabric. Remember, contrary to Mrs. Clinton, Dissent is not necessarily Patriotic. The Toleration of Dissent is Patriotic.
To the Second issue of criminal behavior, I would suggest ceasing the non-stop LIVE coverage of night-time protests. If you give Fools a Stage they will perform upon it.
Instead take that energy being expended by the News Media and focus it on those folks who are genuinely concerned about their community and their relationship with authorities… during the day. They merit the stage far more than the criminals.
Finally, there is never a reason to give Anti-American Activists a platform. THERE IS NO ALTERNATIVE to FREEDOM AND LIBERTY OF THE INDIVIDUAL which is the opposite of what these Socialist organizers want to convey. If they were serious about their supposed concerns regarding Human Rights they would be busy is IRAQ, or myriad other places like China etc.. Instead they focus their efforts on the Freest country on Earth. And the Safest for them to posture, and promote their Progressive Utopia.
The reason they are not confronting areas of real crimes against humanity is because they are far more concerned with promoting their Socialist agenda. They should be ignored.
These simple changes might not drive News ratings…
But they would put the focus back where it should be.
The voices that need to be heard would be heard.
Lives could be saved.
And the Federal Government could go back to DC where it belongs.

insanitybytes22 – one of the better comments I’ve read on this site! “I really miss common sense. It was an awesome thing.”
You made my morning with that one.

I really miss common sense. It was an awesome thing. The media has a way of robbing people of all perspective and everybody suffers from the stupid.
