The Left lies, truth is meaningless to them, they are all about their agenda, and using any tool available to achieve that agenda. One of the targets right now is police officers, and creating an atmosphere of distrust and actual anger at police officers is at the top of the Left’s list. Bob Owens looks at this and offers up some insight. This is important because the police are the targets now, but soon, it might be you, or me
There is an apparent shared mass hysteria masquerading as a “social justice revolution” sweeping through parts of our society. It started by building a mythology surrounding the justified shooting of strong-arm robber and attempted cop-killer Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and expands every time there is a death with a group of activists nearby to blur the lines and and attempt to create the myth that the cops were bloodthirsty and unfair.
We saw this most recently when violent criminal Antonio Martin attempted to murder a Berkeley, Missouri police officer just miles from where Darren Wilson put down a rabid Michael Brown. Fortunately for the Berkeley officer, Martin pulled his gun—a Hi-Point 9mm pistol designed for right-handed shooters—with his left-hand, and was unable to disengage the safety, giving the officer time to retreat and fire shots, one of which struck and killed the attempted cop-killer.
Despite the fact the killing was caught on three security cameras at different angles showing the entire event (the Berkeley PD tastefully refused to show Martin being struck and killed on “Camera 1″, but you can see the officer firing and retreating to safe distance on “Camera 3″), agitators soon arrived and began rioting and a fighting with police.
A mix of modern multi-racial collegiate communists, leftover white hippies, militant black nationalists, La Raza separatists, anarchists, militant jihadists, welfare queens, gang-bangers, spoiled trust-fund progressives, reactionary suburban dolts, and opportunistic self-promoters and left-wing radical politicians are attempting to push this “revolution” nationwide in an attempt to bring down capitalism and the U.S. Constitution.
The practical effect of this is that some criminals now think of themselves as “revolutionaries” as they carry out assaults, robberies, and even assassinations that are attacks on the institutions that hold this Republic together. Law enforcement agencies feel “under siege” because they are, be design.
The media is seemingly only reporting on these stories as they hit major metropolitan areas of interest where the media is congregated either by nature (New York, Los Angeles, etc) or by circumstance (Ferguson/St. Louis and surrounding areas), but there are lesser reported instances of copy-cats and wannabes attacking people in less media-saturated markets. In my local market (Raleigh/Durham) we’ve had a criminal ram police vehicles and attempt to kill officers, while another attempted toassassinate a police officer from behind. Our local leftist media has reliably under-played both attacks on police, pretending that they are simply isolated local news stories, occurring in a vacuum..
Presently, the bulk of these “revolutionary” crimes are targeting police officers.
Expect these criminal attacks to spread to attacks on isolated citizens, and be prepared to defend both yourselves, your family, and even your neighborhood against these “revolutionaries” that act a lot more like roving criminal gangs than political activists.
One of the goals here, I believe, is to have greater federal control over police departments. One of the ultimate goals of the Left is to federalize control of, well, everything. Never forget this, the Left truly believes that nothing short of an all-encompassing and all-powerful federal government can achieve their dream of a Marxist Utopia. Local police forces as well as armed citizens, and former miltary could stand in opposition and therefore must be “fundamentally” changed to be accepting of this utopian fantasy. It is all about control.
