Officers of Peace, Protests, & Unintended Consequences

Let me get right to the point: Has anyone else noticed similarities between the rhetoric of #BlackLivesMatter Movement and that of recent radicalized Islamist? Because to me the similarities seem to be startling, and ominous.

I think we’re all familiar here with the BLM movement and its focus on officers of the peace. But I wonder how many have paid attention to the streak in recent radicalized Islamists. I first noticed it with the ax-attacks on NYC police officers in October, 2014. I didn’t think much of it at the time. Then I noticed again with the martyr video released by Amedy Coulibaly after the deli attack in Paris, which was related to the Charlie Hebdo attack.

In the video Amedy Coulibaly admitted to killing a police officer in the wake of the attack on Charlie Hebdo in order to give cover to his friends, Chérif and Saïd Kouachi, who were the jihadists who attacked Charlie Hebdo. Then, on Friday, the news broke briefly that five in a cell of terrorists were arrested in Belgium over plans to attack police. Today, two more involved in that cell were arrested in Greece. Their explicit design was an attack on police. According to Europol:

[It’s] hard for police to identify plans because suspects were “working in a self-radicalised way very often, not necessarily under any command and control structure”.

In addition to the ax-attacks in New York last October by a “self-radicalized” convert to Islam, we have Ismaaiyl Brinsley, who assassinated officers Wenjian Liu and Raphael Ramos in Brooklyn just before Christmas. He was also “self-radicalized” and there is some evidence that he had at least explored aspects of Islam, and may have converted to it. You won’t find reports of that in mainstream media, of course.

I’m not one to make easy accusations of false equivalence. And I’m not saying that there is any evidence of collaboration between protesters in the BLM movement and major jihadists groups such as ISIS or the myriad incarnations of Al Qaeda. I’m saying the similarities in rhetoric of late are notable and that the topic is worth exploring.

We know that there’s overlap with the BLM movement and the Occupy movement. We also know that Occupy was a thoroughly astroturfed movement. But did you know that one of the most prominent activists in the St. Louis arm of the BLM protest movement is actually a brown Palestinian named Bassem Masri who has spent time agitating in Jerusalem? He’s been a prominent live-streamer in St. Louis and much-interviewed front man since the early days of the Ferguson disruption. His face, along with his t-shirts with catchy anti-police messages, have oft been photographed and displayed prominently on front pages of major news outlets, including the WaPo and NYT. I don’t know else much about him except that his nexus with the BLM has me asking questions.

A lot of what’s gone down with BLM movement is an extension of arguments against a so-called police-state that were the trade of radicalized segments of the boomer population in the 1960s. And in that context, they makes sense given the left’s desperate attempts to recreate the 1950s and 1960s, with all the drama and re-emergent liberal ascendancy characteristic of that time. That’s been the point of a lot of the carpet-bombing of nostalgic rhetoric that defines the age of Obaman agitators.  But there’s a dangerous aspect to their game that has become evident. Will it become pervasive and persuasive enough to de-legitimize even positive police interaction in the United States? What about nations beyond the US? Will it start or contribute to a juggernaut that could leave us all less safe?

Nobody wants a police that is too empowered. Actual police states are brutal on the entire populace; they don’t differentiate between the Michael Browns and the Noah McKennas of the citizenry. If you don’t believe me, just ask the families of the dead Tienanmen Square protesters, all of whom were college students. In an actual police state, Noah McKenna would have been steamrolled by a tank, concrete-buried arm and all. That’s how you know we don’t actually live in a police state. We live in a state that is policed, because crime is real and we need officers who will maintain the peace, protecting innocent people from the math and aftermath of criminals and their violence.

But the movement that is building with #BlackLivesMatters, and the agitators attracted by the idea that they are carrying on a fight begun in the face of actual injustice, are not self-aware enough to know that times have changed, or that outside agitators may be boring into their hollow rhetoric to infect it with a poisonous venom that will strike at the heart of what they say they want most: increased freedom & equality. That’s just what this new breed of jihadists are capable of doing. And that’s just the danger of astroturfed protests.

Effective policing in a free country is a delicate balance. It calls for a force of good people with effective training, balanced with laws & policies that allow for the protections of people and their rights. That’s actually what we have. Do bad things still happen to good people? Yes. Do innocent people still get caught up and crushed beneath the wheels of justice? Yes. That happens. But it happens far less often than it does in actual police states. Just ask Raif Badawi, the Saudi blogger sentenced to 1,000 lashes for insulting Islam.

If there’s a concerted effort to prey on the uncritical mindset of the activist leftist beehive, it’s an effective plan. It won’t take much to reach and radicalized this generation of plugged in activists. Organizing through social media has become a mainstay of both the activist left and caliphate-oriented Islamic radicals. The danger is obvious once it comes into focus, but it’s not been noticed or discussed much. The problem then becomes how to address it, and effectively neutralize the danger.

    Ironically, in police states the police don’t care about criminals.

  2. Myiq2xu says:

    This was gonna be the topic of my morning post:

    Billionaire George Soros spent $33MILLION bankrolling Ferguson demonstrators to create ‘echo chamber’ and drive national protests

    Liberal billionaire George Soros donated $33million to social justice organizations which helped turn events in Ferguson from a local protest into a national flashpoint.

    The handouts, revealed in tax filings from Soros’s private foundation, were given to dozens of different groups which weighed in on the crisis.

    Organizers from professional groups in Washington, D.C., and New York were bussed into the Missouri town to co-ordinate messaging and lobby to news media to cover events using the billionaire’s funding.

    The flood of donations were uncovered in an analysis of the latest tax return by Soros’s Open Society Foundations by the Washington Times.

    The cash was reportedly funneled into keeping up numbers of protesters in the community over a period of months by bringing in outside activists.

    Meanwhile papers from think tanks were disseminated to bring in extra coverage of the civil unrest, also linked to the police killings of Eric Garner in Staten Island and Tamir Rice, 12, in Cleveland, Ohio.

    Outlets which covered the research, and the movements themselves, included one, Colorlines, which Soros himself has funded.

    There’s a bunch more. I think this ties in with Lola’s post quite nicely.

    BTW Lola:

    You’re not crazy. I moved up the post time so I could comment before I went to bed.

    See y’all in the morning!

  4. Myiq2xu says:

    I am shocked and dismayed to learn that I agree with MoDo:

    In a New York Times column published Saturday, Maureen Dowd wrote that she enjoyed director Ava DuVernay’s film but was dismayed by its representation of President Lyndon B. Johnson. The film, about Martin Luther King, Jr.’s 1965 march from Selma to Montgomery, shows Johnson butting heads with King and saying that giving blacks the right to vote is not a priority.

    “I loved the movie and find the Oscar snub of its dazzling actors repugnant,” Dowd wrote. “But the director’s talent makes her distortion of L.B.J. more egregious. Artful falsehood is more dangerous than artless falsehood because fewer people see through it.”

    Dowd, who wrote that taped conversations between King and Johnson confirm that the president supported King’s cause, is worried that young people will now assume that Johnson was an obstacle for civil rights leaders. She also dismissed DuVernay’s explanation that the film should just be appreciated as art and not as a historical document.

    “The ‘Hey, it’s just a movie’ excuse doesn’t wash,” Dowd wrote. “Filmmakers love to talk about their artistic license to distort the truth, even as they bank on the authenticity of their films to boost them at awards season.”

    I don’t agree with the part about the Oscars snub being repugnant, but the rest is spot on. What is so stupid is that the true story is a compelling tale and the changes were totally unnecessary.

      Would have prefer the story of MLK and RFK – but obviously that narrative would create chaotic cognitive dissonance in their fragile minds.

      Another good thread, Lola

      • DeniseVB says:

        I’m kinda burned out from the Oprah’s View Of History genre of movies. There’s always some gratuitous evil whitey spin (the beatin’s, the rapin’s, wimmin’s screamin’s). While I did enjoy The Butler, it started out brutally, and that’s what sticks in those “fragile minds”, that and the artistic tweaking of history as fact. I’m not racist, I LURVE the Madea movies and Tyler Perry is robbed every year! 😉

        Oprah should tell her own story … hard work and perseverance made her a billionaire, not the effects of slavery in the 19th century. She was once the most loved woman in America because of the content of her character, but shoving Obama down our throats in 2008 seemed to turn her to the dark side. She lost half her fans and her network OWN still gets less viewers than Glenn Beck’s digital pay channel.

        • elliesmom says:

          When Oprah was in her heyday, I wasn’t home when her show was on, but the BFF loved it. She dieted along with her, faithfully read the books she chose, and donated regularly to the Angel network. I got a day-to-day rundown on what was happening on Oprah. Now the BFF feels used by her. She thinks the nastier side of Oprah, the one who blames whitey for any personal slights she may encounter, is the real Oprah. The nice lady who gave up sensational topics for uplifting ones did it because she couldn’t compete with Jerry Springer, not because she was above it all. The BFF is an avid movie fan, and I was very surprised when she skipped “The Butler”.

      • Myiq2xu says:

        JFK, RFK and MLK are all Democrat martyrs and no ill can be spoken of them.

        LBJ started the war in Vietnam so he will always be hated.

        So change the facts to fit the narrative.

    • elliesmom says:

      I used to like movies about historical figures and times past. I thought it was a fun way to learn some history. Then I grew old enough for historical movies and TV shows to be made about things I’ve lived through. When I see how badly they distort what I know from first hand experience, I figure they do the same thing to people who lived long ago. So I mostly skip them as I will this one.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Did you see The Kennedys that the History Channel refused to broadcast because it didn’t fit their “audience” ? (Yes, the channel of Pawn Stars !). Reelz picked it up, got huge ratings and won some awards. I think they marathon run the entire series now and then. Probably the most humanely honest portrayal of the Kennedys I’ve ever seen … in a soap opera format 🙂

        Here’s the wiki version of the politics involved in getting it on air. ….

    Remember when John Kerry said terrorism was a law enforcement issue? If it is, the police will be the first targets.

    • leslie says:

      Good point, Days. And “oddly enough”, that is proving to be true.

      Lola, I very much appreciate your post. Good work.

    • 49erDweet says:

      They actually are, for a very good reason, as it turns out. The goal of the radical Islamist, strangely to us, is to kill an “infidel” and then IN TURN be killed himself. He wants death. He fails if he isn’t slain. It seems stupid to us but it’s in his belief system.

  6. DeniseVB says:

    I was happy to see the Boston papers refer to the Douchebarrel Gang as professional agitators, that’s a start. Also seeing more references to the evil mind of $oros and the race baiting Sharpton, who’s now planning to disrupt the Academy Awards with his merry band of thugs.

    Law enforcement is the responsibility of local, state and federal governments who make the laws, police are hired to enforce them. There are many more stupid laws than police officers. So, shouldn’t they be parking their barrels in front of City Hall, State and Federal Capitol buildings ?

    I’ve done anti-war, peace and Tea Party rallies and none of them had the creepiness and agression of what we’re seeing today. I’m still “waiting for it” from the original poopy-rapey douches, Occupy Wall Street. It boggled my mind that the King of Crony Capitalism sits in the White House now …. and they gave him a pass?

    • elliesmom says:

      There’s a river separating Boston and Cambridge, and most of the crazies live on one side of it. During the Occupy stupidity, Mayor Menino negotiated with Harvard to keep its crazies on the Cambridge side. Then he asked Northeastern U to allow space on its campus for the Boston students. Most NEU students are working class and working while in school. Few of them had time to even consider living in tents on what little green space the campus has. The BU students who wanted to be part of the “scene” crossed the river to Harvard. The sidewalk group of protesters were given a street corner where they stood and read poetry to the passers-by. That’s sort of a typical thing to see in Boston. Lots of street performers. If they hadn’t had OWS posters, I’m not sure anyone would have known why they were there.

      Which is why this new round of protesting feels so different from OWS, and why the press is picking up on it pretty quickly.

    In a nutshell …..

  8. HELENK3 says:

    it is weird I was thinking the same exact thing about the black protests and the muslim terrorists. I had read that isis was recruiting in Ferguson during the riots. both have the same objectives kill law enforcement officers, spread disruption and chaos, ruin the American economy.
    You do not hear any objection from the sharptons and those race baiters when blacks are killed by the thousands by muslim terrorists. To me that says the “black lives matter” is just a bunch of hooey. Is it only in America that black lives matter?

    • 1539days says:

      Muslims recruited Blacks in prisons decades ago. That’s how Malcolm X joined The Nation of Islam.

      • piper says:

        Louis Farrakhan Muhammad, Sr. another convert, is the leader of the religious group Nation of Islam. He served as the minister of major mosques in Boston and Harlem, and was appointed by the longtime NOI leader, Elijah Muhammad, as the National Representative of the Nation of Islam.

      • DeniseVB says:

        How did the Muslims get into sports? Muhammed Ali and Karem Abdul-Jabbar come to mind, formerly known as Cassius Clay and Lew Alcinder. They seem rather peaceful 😉

        • elliesmom says:

          I sort of understand why a guy might become a Muslim. It’s the women converting I don’t get.

          • Underwhelmed says:

            Domestic abuse by any other name would smell as foul. No western woman with any level of awareness can willingly convert to Islam without having serious issues. Instead of sticking with a violent partner who hates women, they cozy up to a violent religion that hates women.

      • foxyladi14 says:

        Tru Dat, 👿

    • Lulu says:

      What is with the burning? Remember they burned a guy in Ferguson too. Now the monster mother burned/murdered her infant. She told bystanders that she was just burning some dog shit and then they realized what the hell she was doing. They always use accelerant or lighter fluid. Who carries that stuff around? Cops are just the latest to be threatened apparently. Where is this latest terror coming from? Who originated it?

      • piper says:

        Probably will be sued for this comment – George Soros is probably behind all this having experienced but learnt well the lessons of Nazism. Although he is in his eighties he still wants to be in Charge / Control – he financed the riots/dissent in Egypt and Ukraine.

        • Lulu says:

          That actually makes sense. They seem to have studied the methods, tactics and strategy of fascists. If your target audience is illiterate of history (such as Ivy Leaguer’s) it is that much easier to pull off. Burning corpses is a natural fit along with cultural and family destruction. Just like the Nazi’s.

  9. HELENK3 says:

    muslims and free speech.

    good article telling us to be forewarned

  10. DeniseVB says:

    This certainly proves Lola’s point, who the hell are these heartless, gutless and stupid “revolutionaries” …. with funny names? I’m not sure what they want, but I don’t want to live in their “utopian world”. Ick.

  11. piper says:

    These idjits/agitators think that anything goes and have created a myth about Islam not realizing that the very freedoms that allow them to picket / protest / speak out the way they like and do would be prohibited under Sharia Law. They are probably upping the production of whips in their factories.

    Good thing that I never put my tinfoil chapeau away as George Soros kept floating in my periphery of who’s who is hiding behind the curtain.

    • leslie says:

      But, but, but, George $oros is a hero. Just ask any Prog.
      I remember when I was a “practicing Democrat”, he was hailed as a hero and savior of sorts. I remember messages that he was instrumental in the initial funding of (His seed money equaled $1.46 million.

        Yep, I was a Charter Member of MoveOn when it was supposed to hold ALL the government’s feet to the fire….when they came out in support of Obama, the mask came off and they lost half their supporters. Much like what happened to the AARP when they came out in support of Obamacare.

    • piper says:

      Sadly these shootings / killing happened frequently in Chicago.

      • DeniseVB says:

        And tragically everywhere else. Mostly gangland style initiations claim innocent victims too, mostly young men who are trying to stay out of gangs. I’ll never forget Rahm telling his thug base after the killing a young boy “you can keep on killing each other, but leave the kids alone”. Something like that.

        Hopefully the new R governor will help clean up the state, he’s already gotten rid of Quinn’s stupid 11th hour executive orders that “don’t help the people of Illinois at all” 🙂

        • leslie says:

          Honestly, you’d think people would give the guy some time, right? But no. because of where I work, I’m with Dems/Progs all the time. They have already begun to criticize him for “damaging” the workers in the state. Frankly, we are “not supposed to” talk politics at work (I suppose it is to thwart any criticism of our “leader” (the gov’t) who is our boss. There is open dissension right now and the guy has only been the governor for 4.5 days. So I suggested that they give it a rest. We aren’t supposed to be the spokesperson for the Democrats, I said. They looked at me as if I were a terrorist. (It’s not enough that the Dem. legislature has already promised to block any changes Rauner tries to make.) Well, there goes my “employee of the year” award when I leave in June. lol.

          • DeniseVB says:

            Wasn’t that one of the EO’s Quinn signed into “law”, unionizing all his staff and employees so the new guy couldn’t fire them? Something like that. I hope Rauner continues to use Scott Walker’s playbook and you guys will be just fine 😉

        • cynic says:

          I remember that well Denise. Via YAHOO:

          When questioned about the death of 7-year-old Heaven Sutton, who was caught in the crossfire of rival gang members as she sold candy in front of her home in June, Emanuel commented, “It’s not about crime, it’s about values.” He was pressed to clarify the comment.

          His response:

          “We’ve got two gang-bangers, one standing next to a kid. Get away from that kid. Take your stuff away to the alley. Don’t touch the children of the city of Chicago. Don’t get near them. And it is about values. … And I don’t buy this case where people say they don’t have values. They do have values. They have the wrong values. Don’t come near the kids—don’t touch them.

          • DeniseVB says:

            Thanks cynic, sounded like a stern warning 😉

          • Underwhelmed says:

            Sounds to me like he’s being a realist. He knows there is no way to end the black on black violence. Not while the likes of Sharpton and JJ et al have the power, anyway. I suspect those types despise the gangbanger crowd and are perfectly happy for them to do what they do, even as they provide useful excuses to play the race card. I’d say Rahm knows that better than anyone. So sure, let the bangers kill each other off – and absolutely, protect the children.

      It’s raining here today. Not a deluge- just a slow steady rain. The bitter cold of last week has passed, though. It’s a balmy 45 degrees. Enough to make the playing field a muddy mess and the fans in the stands uncomfortable. The Colts stadium can be covered in bad weather so the wet playing field might give the Pats a slight advantage. I’m not much of a football fan. The traffic from the game mostly affects the people living south of the city, and I live west. We often venture out to the local pub on a Sunday afternoon. I think we’re going to wait and go tomorrow this week. Finding a table today will be a challenge. 🙂

    Strange days…good post Lola. I’ve been spending the last week reading as many foreign news articles as I can about the Charlie Hebdo incident that I can either read in French or find suitable translations of Arabic and I have to say I am stunned (well, not really) by the different points of view around the world and how little is actually still being reported in the American MSM, The NYT has been covering it in some depth…but I am never quite sure what their point of view is…

        Chicago movie theaters have offered up to 10,000 free seats for school kids this weekend.
        I saw “Birdman” yesterday afternoon. There were no seats available when the film started. No one left the theater during the film – no one. There was a long line of movie goers outside that theater waiting for the next showing. In fact, the biggest surprise to me is that in the mob of patrons at the 18 screen complex were mostly waiting for movies other than “Selma”. “American Sniper” is being shown in 2 different theaters. “Selma is being shown in 1. I guess we are all racist now……(or patriotic?)

        • leslie says:

          I should have said the free seats are to see “Selma”. But you already knew that.

        • DeniseVB says:

          How did you like Birdman? I’m a huge Michael Keaton fan and so happy to see he’s getting much love for this role. With hopes the rumors are true that he and Tim Burton are reteaming to update Beetlejuice.

          • leslie says:

            I was spellbound. Michael Keaton was wonderful – simply wonderful. All the actors were superb. When the GG awards nominated the film in the comedy/musical category, I couldn’t understand why (from the previews at least). Really you must see it. My friends felt the same way about the movie. I thought I knew what it was about, but even though I’d seen previews and had read about it, I was mesmerized and surprised. And don’t go alone if you can help it. Otherwise you won’t have anyone to talk with about it. Keaton’s performance is making the Oscar race a nail biter.
            I just got back from seeing “The Theory of Everything”. I am solidly in love with Eddie Redmayne. Have been ever since “Les Mis”. I had chills all the way through the film today because of his performance. (Just as I had throughout Les Mis). This year’s nominations are making voting an impossible task.

          • DeniseVB says:

            leslie …. thanks so much for your review. I didn’t get the musical/comedy category either, at least from the trailer it seemed pretty dark. AND, I’m so jelly you saw Theory of Everything too this weekend. I heard even Steven Hawking loved it. If the awards come down to left (Selma) v. right (American Sniper), I hope they cancel each other out and Theory wins. 😉

          • leslie says:

        Hollywood is funny they think they are so important. Really George Clooney marrying a woman from the mid east is going to profoundly effect international relationships. Get over yourself. You make pretend for a living. Playing a doctor does not make you fit to practice medicine. No one harboring racist thoughts is going to drop ten dollars to see Selma. Just a bunch of like minded liberals patting themselves on each other’s back. The hypocrisy is astounding the “you didn’t build that crowd” insists that they have there name in 40 foot letters. Save the earth but fly in private jets. Curse the NRA but have armed body guards. Pretty sick lot.

    Hot Air:

    The Nasa climate scientists who claimed 2014 set a new record for global warmth last night admitted they were only 38 per cent sure this was true…

    The claim made headlines around the world, but yesterday it emerged that GISS’s analysis – based on readings from more than 3,000 measuring stations worldwide – is subject to a margin of error. Nasa admits this means it is far from certain that 2014 set a record at all.

    Yet the Nasa press release failed to mention this, as well as the fact that the alleged ‘record’ amounted to an increase over 2010, the previous ‘warmest year’, of just two-hundredths of a degree – or 0.02C. The margin of error is said by scientists to be approximately 0.1C – several times as much.

    We have since then delegated much of our defense to specialists — the police. But delegating our defense does not relinquish our right and duty to defend.
    How will you defend another? Words? What if words don’t work? What then? What if you are small and weak and the attacker is big and strong? What if there are multiple attackers? What if they are armed?
