Ferguson has created some strange bedfellows: the media, actual protesters, radical groups who want to overthrow our system of government, and Barack Obama.
I saw the following photo today on the Twitter page of a reporter covering Ferguson – Paul Hampel. The photo shows protester Becca Campbell arguing with the police. The reporter tweeted that the death of Becca Campbell, a Ferguson protester, was suspicious. Many responding to the tweet asked if the police did it.
As it turns out, Becca Campbell, 26, accidentally (allegedly) shot herself in the head with a gun she bought to prepare for the “mostly peaceful protests”.
According to WPTV, this is what transpired where she died in an area surrounded by vacant lots:
He (her 33-year old boyfriend) told investigators that as they drove late Friday night, the victim waved a gun, jokingly saying the couple were ready for Ferguson, the sources said.
He ducked to get out of the way of the gun and accidentally rear-ended another car. He said the accident caused the gun to go off and she was struck by a bullet in the head, the sources said.
The boyfriend’s story is being checked of course.
It’s hard to know what is really going on in Ferguson, but one thing is certain, the media has a large role in all of it. If a dozen protesters show up, three dozen media appear. Many of the people the media covers are the thugs who have overwhelmed the protests.
Criminals, Anarchists, Communists, radical black liberation groups have poured into Ferguson and legitimate protesters from Ferguson are dwarfed by it.
Check out the Anarchist arrest Mr. Hampel filmed:
If there is one incident with one person, the media eats it up, adding to the Ferguson mayhem and encouraging thugs.
Social media has played no small part. The Wall Street Journal reported two weeks ago that there were close to 8 million tweets about Ferguson. In August, the TV networks tweeted 1,000,000 times before the cable media even covered it, according to Pew Hispanic Research.
Another interesting fact from Pew Hispanic Research is what happened in Ferguson once Obama commented. Check out the graph.
It’s not surprising and Barack Obama knows he’s adding fuel to the fire. He won’t let it die. He is on record saying he wants this to become a national movement. Every national movement is an excuse for him to nationalize.
He did it again in an interview on This Week with George Stephanopoulos this past Sunday. He did emphasize that the protests must be kept peaceful. However, one might suppose that if they’re not peaceful, that pales in comparison to his larger goal of bringing big government down upon the local police throughout the country.
He wants a national movement out of this which will affect change with the police and how they deal with people of color.
Decide what you think of the president’s views expressed in the following video. Shouldn’t he stop talking when it’s a case not yet adjudicated?
Mr. Obama has weighed in on the case repeatedly and it could as a result keep a police officer from getting a fair hearing. He is affecting the Grand Jury and that alone seems unethical. He is the president of the United States sending a message to a sitting jury.
Barack Obama claims there are only a handful of trouble makers, however the “protesters” include the New Black Panthers, Black Lawyers for Justice, Anarchists, Anonymous, the KKK, criminals especially looters and cop haters, cop hating groups, the Revolutionary Communist Party, the Nation of Islam, radical pro-Palestinian groups, the NAACP, to name a few and they are the bulk of the “protesters”.
It’s just what they do according to one visible protester who does most of the live streaming in Ferguson:
Most support Barack Obama and they sure don’t support police.
We even have the far-left Amnesty International in Ferguson. They usually concern themselves with terrorists like ISIS.
Barack Obama’s intel must be bad because if he knew how bad it is he could be accused of fomenting riots. Maybe his newspaper wasn’t delivered yet.
I like the minister speaking his mind in the next video. Maybe he should be president.
How about what Rudy Giuliani says in the next video:
