Ferguson, fiction, and fatuity
Tee shirt sales are hopping in Ferguson these days. It’s become quite the cottage industry. And the messages printed on them are not to be believed.
Here we have a man wearing a shirt that expresses his preference for ISIS over the Ferguson police:
This man seems to think America is still overrun by members of the KKK:
This isn’t a tee shirt (yet), but the message is cherry-picked:
This group opted for keffiyehs instead of tee shirts, but despite being out of uniform they stood in solidarity with the victims of Ferguson:
And speaking of uniforms, members of the Nation of Islam were passing on the tee shirts and sticking to their favorite mode of attire: black suit, white shirt, and bow tie. Mini Farrakhans.
The left – and in this case, black Americans – refuse to let go of a sense of victimhood and entitlement. And as they travel down this road, many appear wholly unaware of some very basic facts. Or if they are aware of them, they intentionally ignore them in order to advance their meme.
Assuming facts are lacking, here are a few related to the images above:
As for the gentleman who would prefer an encounter with ISIS over an encounter with the Ferguson police, I can only say, sir, you are either woefully uninformed or taking a stab at (no pun intended) creating absurd drama in painting the Ferguson Police Department as more vile, dangerous, barbaric, hateful, and murderous than ISIS. May the horrors that ISIS inflicts never befall you. Because even complete fools do not deserve such a fate as what ISIS has in store.
To the man with the Islamic style beard who seems to be living in another time in America, here is a statistic to awaken you from your slumber: The number of individuals affiliated with the KKK plummeted from a high of 4,000,000 back in the 1920’s to approximately 6,000 today. That’s still 6,000 hateful lunatics too many, but to suggest that the United States can be defined by the values of the KKK is outlandish and false.
The woman holding the sign professing love for children and care that must be taken before shooting them was strange. Think. Then shoot? But I get what she was trying to say. Anyway, who in the world would want their child to be shot? And yet I see no mass protests or marches in Chicago and other cities across the United States where black people murder dozens and dozens of other black people every single day, many of them little children. Do these lives lost matter less than Michael Brown’s because the shooters are not white? (And this does not even take into account that these ruthless murders are due to gang violence, whereas we don’t even know all the facts surrounding Michael Brown’s murder.) So this seems to be more about expressing rage toward white people than it is about caring about black people being gunned down in cold blood.
Now if I can give a shout out to the Palestinian sympathizers: Way to exploit a tragic situation. And if I can offer a wee fact (don’t want to overwhelm you with too many): There is no place called “Palestine.” Sorry to disappoint. Oh, and one more thing, just how are you all standing with Ferguson? Did any of you volunteer to clean up the streets during the riots? Are any of you interested in setting up a business in Ferguson to help the depressed economy there? Or when you say you stand with Ferguson, did you just mean to align with people who are enraged in order to garner recruits for your own hateful cause while appearing empathic at the same time? You’re a bunch of losers and we’re onto your taqiyya. Get lost.
And, last but not least, to the Nation of Islam guys, otherwise known as Jew-haters: If you’re so in love with Islam go move to a Middle Eastern country (other than Israel) and have a nice life. Because this country does not need more of Islam; we need less. We don’t need more anti-Semites; we need less. We don’t need more people who incite violence; we need less.
Wake up, Fregusonians!
