Mob violence protesting grand jury will be about as spontaneous as Benghazi

The demonstrations and violence that seem almost certain to break out if the grand jury returns no indictment in the death of Michael Brown have been planned for months.  Last week, Lee Cary documented (here, here, here, here, and here) the radical Marxist agenda of groups taking a leadership role in ginning up these demonstrations. 

Sensibly, Governor Jay Nixon has declared a state of emergency and deployed the National Guard.  Unlike Hillary Clinton’s State Department, when violence is a high probability, Governor Nixon is taking measures to deal with it.

Sunday, the New York Times revealed that President Obama personally met with some demonstration leaders and, according to self-ordained “Reverend” Al Sharpton, told them to stay “on course.”

In short, we have a well-organized effort to intimidate a grand jury and sow the seeds of racial violence.  Radio talk show host Michael Savage terms this effort a “lynch mob” aimed at Officer Wilson, the Ferguson policeman who shot Michael Brown in the course of a police stop, shortly after surveillance video reveals he (or someone bearing a remarkable resemblance to him) robbed a nearby convenience store.

Writing on Breitbart, Kerry Pickett reports on the training being given to would-be demonstrators:

In a small room located on South Jefferson Avenue in a building used by IUOE Local 148, organizers like Rev. Osagyefo Sekou are instructing groups of individuals about tactics relating to resisting police commands during demonstrations.  Sekou is a St. Louis native who grew up in the area but now lives in Massachusetts.

Note that resisting lawful police commands during violent demonstrations is a crime.

“We break unjust laws, because it’s the morally right thing to do. That’s why we do it. And there’s a tradition of that,” Sekou says to the group of mainly white attendees--many who are at least 50 years old.

More law-breaking, despite a lot of boilerplate about “nonviolence.”

And militant non-violent civil disobedience gave us the 8 hour work day It gave us women’s right to vote It gave us the possibility of me standing here in this room with you without the relative fear of arbitrary violent because this meeting would have been historically illegal 50 years ago.

This is gibberish. In 1964 there were no laws against meetings.

That’s what militant non-violent civil disobedience gave us.  We are angry, but we will not allow the anger to have the last word,” says Sekou as the protesters-in-training answered him positively with rousing congregational “yeahs” after each sentence.

“So what militant non-violent civil disobedience allows us to do is to create a container that we can channel it directly at the state, because this is not about bad apples. This is about a rotten system,” Sekou tells the trainees.

 “Because you can be a good cop who doesn’t shoot black people but if you give out more tickets in Ferguson than there are actually people in Ferguson, that’s an evil system.”

The possibility that tickets are issued in response to behavior does not seem to enter his mind.  He is ginning up hatred, in the name of love, as revolutionaries have done for the last century and more:

Sekou then starts, “So we are confronting an…”

The audience finishes his sentence stating back to him, “evil system."

He continues, “[This is] not about an individual police or about individuals. This is about confronting an evil system. And the thing that guides us is love—not the kind of love that you see somebody and you think they’re cute—not that—deep abiding love. Say that.”

Attendees responded, “deep abiding love.”

“That’s what guides us, because deep abiding love says you’re willing to go to jail for what you believe in. Deep abiding love says you’re willing to risk your life for what you believe in,” Sekou says. “That’s what deep abiding love does. Deep abiding love in the front of tanks and tear gas and pepper spray says you will not bow down.”

There is no telling how bad it will get when the wheels of justice have turned, and the grand jury issues its report.  But if the forces working to exploit the situation have their way, it will be very, very bad, and serve to take Jonathan Gruber, the IRS scandal, and the Obamacare rate hikes out of the news.  

As intended, planned, and executed.
