The Justice for Mike Brown Ferguson protest group released its list of potential targets following the decision by the St. Louis County Courthouse on the Mike Brown case.
The published map shows expected landmarks like the Ferguson City Hall and the County Courthouse.
Most telling thing is the mark for Emerson Electric. Emerson has been in Ferguson for at least 50 years, long before Ferguson became a minority municipality. Yet not only do they mark Emerson they make note of the CEO’s salary. Maybe they’re mutating into an extortion group straight out of the playbook of Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow Push Coalition?
The entire list is on the link, some 50 or 60 offices, businesses, persons. Listed as Potential Action Locations.
I’m all about public protest. It’s a fine, American tradition. Damaging the property of others, or damaging others, however, is beyond the pale.
And I’ve two questions regarding all this brouhaha:
1. Who is sponsoring these protests? Paying for the professionally-made signs, busing protestors to where they will do the most
damage good? Paying for their lodging, food, bail? I certainly wanted to protest for or against certain things in my youth, but was going to school and working full-time. Tough to miss class and get off work to travel to D.C. or wherever to make a political statement!
2. Cui bono? WHO benefits? How is it the Attorney General of the United States visits with the protestors to plan strategies? Shouldn’t he be meeting with City and State law enforcement to plan strategies there? What is wrong with this picture?
It’s as if we’re in Superman’s Bizzaro World!
