Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Ku Klux Klan members from three different states are reportedly traveling to Ohio to hold a two-day fundraiser for the officer who shot unarmed teen Michael Brown, and to "guard white businesses." The Southern Poverty Law Center first reported last week that that the New Empire Knights of the Ku Klux Klan had begun raising money in support of the Ferguson police officer who killed Brown. On Friday, the New Empire Knights announced that it would be holding a fundraiser on August 23-24 in Sullivan, about 60 miles from Ferguson. "With the police state in Ferguson, we will be holding our fundraiser in Sullivan City, MO," the announcement said. "Donations of $10 and up. All money will go to the cop who did his job against the ----- criminal."

Denouncing this should be the first priority of the "white" community.

I denounce it, vehemently. The klan has no reason to be there. This is not an agenda driven situation on behalf of "white" people.

"Denouncing this should be the first priority of the "white" community."

Sullivan city officials are not endorsing any kind of activity these guys have in their town.

I doubt these idiots raise much money but does the cop accept their donation? I doubt it.

There are probably a number of people who would like to support this cop....but not while standing next to guys wearing a hood over their head.

The hoods are red now?

Mine's always been white....

"And to anyone thinking of trying to get in the way, Murray warned, "we have guns (and more).""

Are they threatening the cops or the community or both?

If they really show up, its not going to end well.

They are full of it. I doubt these guys show up with guns.

They'll show up and do a little demonstration like those -------- from the Westboro Baptist church who protest funerals.

they'll carry some signs, have some harsh things to say about blacks, etc. but that will be it....I hope.

I hope like hell the clan doesn't bring guns. If they do....not one will get fired...that's just my personal prediction.

but their presence will be of no help to either the police department nor the national guard.

Personally, I am waiting on the Westborough Baptist Church folks to show up to minister peace.

And I am with 726. Popping corn and chilling beer to watch this play out.

I guess if being a looter was the result of being a helpless victim, then maybe.

Yea well I dont like the KKK but this is what your gonna get when you protest because a criminal who beats up the police gets killed.

The protestors are actually supporting the criminals and are criminals themselves when they loot.

I see them in the crowds saying they want a race war. Now someone may actually bring them one.

Its really sad to see these brainwashed protestors.

Those idiots are so damn stupid I doubt they can find Ferguson, Sounds like Darwinism in action. Honestly, I wont shed a tear when some of them get killed, of course I don't care if a few of the looters get their ticket punched ether. BTW, Of the 60 or so people arrested last night only 3 were actually from Ferguson.

This whole issue will pass over, with the left(25-30%) clamoring for justice for Michael Brown and the rest of America understanding that the cop was probably justified in shooting...although tragic as it was. Obama will make some really nice, teleprompter enable speech. The media will congratulate themselves on how well they did by "being on the front lines", and America will get on with the daily grind of getting the kids back to school and watching football. This will become a blip on the radar.

What nobody will really dig into is why Michael Brown was out robbing a store, or strongarming a business owner in the first place. The left will blame racism, but most Americans aren't buying it anymore. We are 2 generations beyond the Civil Rights Act, and the state of young, black males is nearly worse off than it was back then. Unemployment for young, black males is over 20%. Meanwhile, illegals are sneaking into the country just so they can go work construction jobs, getting paid $ 10/hr, raise their kids & hope that they can get an education. I don't support illegals, but I do understand their plight.

It is nearly impossible for the news media to truly dig into this issue, because they lean so far left (outside of Fox) and the African American Dem vote is as secure as the Teachers Union. As a result, they agitate on the issue like we are living in the 1960's still. We aren't. My teenage kids live in a world that is so much more diverse than what I grew up in. They see Indian, Asian and Latino families who put 9-10 people under one roof, they focus very strongly on education and everyone under the roof contributes to the well being of the children, so that they can pursue their dreams. The younger generation does not see race as an issue, because they see people of all races being successful on a daily basis. The sympathy that the media thinks they are generating isn't there anymore. People get it. Education and hard-work will provide you with a better opportunity at life. My kids can't empathize with Michael Brown because their first thought was, "why was he robbing a store"? The nuance that the left must work through to explain "why" Michael Brown was robbing a store just won't work. In fact, I tried it. They don't buy it. Does it mean he deserved to be shot? Of course not, but it is the question that noone in the media will dare ask.

The way I see, there are 2 takeaways from the Ferguson shooting:

1. We have over-militarized local police forces, and we need to equip the police with safer, and more effective means to combat aggression.
2. There is a clear lack of leadership in talking about the plight of young, african-american males. As a result, that vacuum gets filled by those who can only agitate, not lead.

One thing is for sure....Obama is getting a pass on not even coming close to this event in St. Louis. If this were any republican remaining at Martha's Vineyard....they'd get beat up pretty bad for it.

Remember when Condi Rice was reportedly shopping for shoes during Katrina...geez..that must have been for an hour or 2 and the left went nuts.

Sometimes I don't even have to pen a parody as the original lyrics already apply:

Here they come
Here come the bastards
I heard it from a confident -
Who heard it form a confidant
They're definitely on their way
There's one with this idea
Something about a hammer head shark
Nosehairs and flatus
Best keep your distance because
Here they come here come the bastards
Bury your head deep in the sand
Anonymity is a virtue in this day and age
Amazing hand dexterity
Flagrant misuse of security
Better run, run, run, run, run
Run Run Run Run, here they come

Racism and injustice are abstractions. It is white dominated power structures that are at issue as well as a history of oppression perpetrated by whites against non-whites that is now being systematically covered up or ignored by whites under the guise of "color blindness" or even, bizarrely, anti-racism (as in your post).

1. We have over-militarized local police forces, and we need to equip the police with safer, and more effective means to combat aggression.

There are many ways to combat aggression. Being the better man is something the police need to consider. When the police use profanity in making initial contact with a civilian, it's nothing more than bait, intended to provoke a violent response which in turn justifies police use of force. That people fall for the bait doesn't change what it is. This practice needs to stop.

Policing is largely a customer service job. If I used profanity, especially unsolicited, in any of my customer service jobs, it would be grounds for termination. Police need to be held to a similar standard. Some would say higher standard.

2. There is a clear lack of leadership in talking about the plight of young, african-american males. As a result, that vacuum gets filled by those who can only agitate, not lead.
#40 | Posted by CaseyJones

Plights don't get fixed by talking about them. It takes action. If the Invisible Hand guiding our economy has decided that young black males are not particularly employable, something else will fill the void. That something is gangs and petty crime. Talking about the fact that our economy has little use for poor uneducated blacks (and whites, and anyone really) doesn't do anything to find them a productive or at least non-destructive place in society.
