American Power Blog: Actually, I disagree with Bryan Burrough’s argument that #BlackLivesMatter activists aren’t endorsing armed resistance against America’s law enforcement. Maybe the dude’s not on Twitter. I’ve repeatedly posted on the Ferguson activists, in Missouri and New York, advocating cop killing and the Marxist-Leninist revolutionary overthrow of capital. The deaths of New York City police officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu were the direct result of leftist anti-cop agitation, including New York protesters chanting “What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want it? Now!”
The fact is leftist cop-killing agitation is all over the place. It’s not isolated to a few so-called “fringe” elements. As urban riots continue around the country, expect to see leftists target more police officers for murder.
Here’s Burrough, at LAT, “Today, a softer response to police violence than in 1960s and ’70s“:
Among the first black leaders [in the 1960s] who called for retaliation was Robert Williams, an NAACP man in North Carolina who, after confrontations with the Ku Klux Klan, urged blacks to arm themselves in a 1962 book called “Negroes With Guns.” After fleeing to Cuba, Williams called for black servicemen to kill their white superiors during the Cuban missile crisis.
A far more prominent advocate was Malcolm X, who made police a focus of his demands for a bloody black revolution in American streets. After his assassination in 1965, Malcolm’s baton was picked up and carried forward by angry militants such as Stokely Carmichael and H. Rap Brown of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, who popularized the term “Black Power.” MORE
When I first saw the graphic attached to this story, “Arms Up, Shoot Back!” I thought it was advocating armed resistance to looters and protesters and those advocating the “Hands Up Don’t Shoot” mantra. Then I saw the hashtag #solidaritywithferguson and was disappointed.
Is that a Patty Hearst pic?
Even if it’s not, it looks 1970s era. I think that rifle is a FN FAL variant which isn’t used much these days.
Tell me again who were the aggressors? Oh yeah! The militant, liberal, hateful, anti-American democrats. As Charles Barkley said, “Poor people have been voting for the democrats for 50 years — and they’re still poor.”
Just like in Texas, we either stand up to this type of bullshit or get used to baseball games without an audience…
