“The squeaky wheel gets the grease” is an American idiom used to convey the idea that the most noticeable (or loudest) problems (or people) are the ones most likely to get attention.
Americans are shocked and dismayed by the shootings, looting and rioting happening in Ferguson, Missouri. Elected leaders, at every level of government, appear to be rewarding this behavior by giving it undo attention. First it was Governor Jay Nixon (D-MO) taking full control of the streets of Ferguson from the Mayor and City Council. Governor Nixon then called out the Missouri National Guard. Now President Obama is sending U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to Ferguson. The “attention escalation” has been breathtaking. Yet, the more attention they get the more violent they become.
On Saturday, August 9th, 2014 there were two shootings involving black and white men, the one in Ferguson and another in Miami, FL. The differences in “attention escalation” are stark.
A visiting 60-year old Brooklyn orthodox Rabbi Joseph Raksin was shot dead by two young black men in full view of his son-in-law and grandsons while walking to Shabbat (Saturday) services at Bais Menachem synagogue in North Miami. It is alleged by Miami Dade police that it may have been a botched robbery attempt. The irony is that orthodox Jews carry no money on Shabbat. One of the black assailants fled on a bicycle, while the other, on foot. The week before the murder of Rabbi Raksin an Orthodox synagogue, in the same vicinity, Torah V’Emunah, was vandalized with red swastikas with the word “Hamas”.
Why are government officials not treating both shootings equally under the law?
The answer may be that many, including Congressman Mo Brooks (R-AL), believe America is seeing an escalation of the “War on Whites”. In terms of getting attention, it appears there are different rules for a black man killing a white man than for a white man (or white police officer) shooting a black man. David Weigel from the Huffington Post reports on Congressman Brooks remarks concerning illegal immigration and a “War on Whites”:
“Well, this is a part of the war on whites that’s being launched by the Democratic Party,” he said. “And the way in which they’re launching this war is by claiming that whites hate everybody else. It’s part of the strategy that Barack Obama implemented in 2008, continued in 2012, where he divides us all on race, on sex, greed, envy, class warfare, all those kinds of things. Well, that’s not true, OK? And if you look at the polling data, every demographic group in America agrees with the rule of law and securing our borders.” He told listeners to seek out a speech Rep. Raul Labrador (whose family is Puerto Rican) gave about the rhetoric. ‘The Democrats, they have to demagogue on this, and turn it into a racial issue.'”
The featured image is of King Shamir Shabazz who is in Ferguson. Shabazz was, as were the Reverend Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson, in Florida during the 2012 Trayvon Martin shooting trial and participated in demonstrations in the Orlando area.
In April 2012 Florida private investigator Bill Warner reported, “Shabazz started out in Louis Farrakhan’s ‘Fruit of Islam’ security detail. He later left to join his idol Khallid Muhammed in the New Black Panther Party. On whites: ‘I’m about the total destruction of white people. I’m about the total liberation of black people. I hate white people. I hate my enemy. . . .’. ‘The only thing the cracker understands is violence,’ said Shabazz, whose face also bears the tattoos ‘Freedom,’ ‘BPG’ (Black Power Gang) and ‘NBPP’ (New Black Panther Party). ‘The only thing the cracker understands is gunpowder.'”
Is there a war against White people? Are we seeing the rise of the Islamic State of Ferguson (ISOF)?
There are certain pejoratives used by those conducting the war on whites or “white war mongers.” Words like: Christian, Jew, right wing, legal citizen, gun owner, businessman, rich, conservative, constitutionalist, married with children, TEA Party, TEA bagger, racist, Islamophobe, homophobe or just plain “whitey.” There are also pejoratives for blacks who act like whites: Uncle Tom, not black enough, etc. You can tell these white war mongers by their use of a Nazi style salute, talk about social justice for themselves but not whitey and make demands that call for equality for anyone but whites.
Greg Gutfeld from the Fox News program The Five said these rioters, “Need slugs not hugs.” Rep. Brooks said on Breitbart TV, “White[s] are treated differently, you can discriminate against them.” Brooks said there is “reverse discrimination” going on.
Ferguson has become the face of the “War on Whites”. If you doubt it just watch the nightly news.
