VIDEO: The Ferguson “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” Lie

VIDEO: The Ferguson “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” Lie

The truth matters.

One of the two posts of mine that sent some alumni, faculty, and students at Cornell Law School into a rage regarded the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” slogan which has become synonymous with the Black Lives Matter Movement.

On June 4, 2020, I went through, as I have multiple times since 2014, how that slogan, which originated with the Michael Brown shooting by a policeman in Ferguson, MO, was a fabrication, Reminder: “Hands up, don’t shoot” is a fabricated narrative from the Michael Brown case.

PragerU just released a video narrated by Larry Elder, going over the same point, titled The Ferguson Lie.

It’s worth a watch, because the truth matters.

A good reference is the “Ferguson” play by Phelim McAleer which essentially uses the grand jury testimony as the script.

Obama pushed this like the good community organizer that he was. He did numerous pushes to agitate racial unrest. Never mind the facts of the cases, Obama was front and center. Travon Martin – he pretty closely made the shooting about himself, “if I had a son”… to make it like it was a proxy assassination.

The facts never seem to matter.

BLM is also raking in huge amounts of money, yet it is not a charitable organization, it is run like a company, and over 90% of the money going in pays the world wide organization salaries. It is closely aligned with Muslim Brotherhood.

Notice that when Obama was elected racial issues became worse than they had been since at least the 70’s. This was purposeful. Blacks were fed anti-police propaganda through Obama’s efforts. George Floyd’s death became a planned trigger for the current riots. They were only looking for the right shooting or other incident by a police officer against a black man to move their plans into action. The riots weren’t grass roots. Well organized, equipped, funded, and organizers bused in to fuel things and push escalating violence.

This all got worked up when polls were released about the growing support President Trump was having in the black community. It’s why they are targeting removal of Lincoln statues.

Ferguson was used to put BLM into play, but it was planned and organized before this happened. It doesn’t matter that it is built on a lie. The whole current “democrat” party is built on a series of lies. What’s one more, when it helps keep pushing racial division and hatred?

    The problem is not Obama. The problem is us.

    Why are we allowing all of this to happen?

      redc1c4 in reply to alohahola. | June 27, 2020 at 2:19 am

      denying the validity of an essential truth does not make it any less so.

      Obola deliberately set this country back 60+ years on the race issue.

        harleycowboy in reply to redc1c4. | June 27, 2020 at 2:48 am

        Race relations were going just fine. No more riots and people were being accepted for who the were. Then came along DUH WON and race became headline news. Now certain people have discovered that there is money to be had racism is being exploited for financial gain.

    Antifa Financing

    The coordinated violence raises questions about how Antifa is financed. The Alliance for Global Justice (AFGJ) is an organizing group that serves as a fiscal sponsor to numerous radical left-wing initiatives, according to Influence Watch, a research group that collects data on advocacy organizations, foundations and donors.

    AFGJ, which describes itself as “anti-capitalist” and opposed to the principles of liberal democracy, provides “fiscal sponsorship” to groups advocating numerous foreign and domestic far-left and extreme-left causes, including eliminating the State of Israel.

    The Tucson, Arizona-based AFGJ, and people associated with it, have advocated for socialist and communist authoritarian regimes, including in Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela. In the 2000s, AFGJ was involved in anti-globalization demonstrations. In the 2010s, AFGJ was a financial sponsor of the Occupy Wall Street movement.

    AFGJ has received substantial funding from organizations often claiming to be the mainstream of the center-left. The Open Society Foundations, Tides Foundation, Arca Foundation, Surdna Foundation, Public Welfare Foundation, the Ben & Jerry Foundation and the Brightwater Fund have all made contributions to AFGJ, according to Influence Watch.

    One of the groups funded by AFGJ is called Refuse Fascism, a radical left-wing organization devoted to promoting nationwide action to remove from office President Donald Trump, and all officials associated with his administration, on the grounds that they constitute a “fascist regime.” The group has been present at many Antifa radical-left demonstrations, also according to Influence Watch. The group is an offshoot of the Radical Communist Party (RCP).

    In July 2017, the RCP bragged that it took part in violent riots against the G20 Summit in Hamburg, Germany. The RCP has argued that capitalism is synonymous with fascism and that the election of President Trump would lead the U.S. government to “bludgeon and eliminate whole groups of people.”

    In June 2020, Refuse Fascism took advantage of the death of George Floyd to raise money for a “National Revolution Tour” evidently aimed at subverting the U.S. government. The group’s slogan states: “This System Cannot Be Reformed, It Must Be Overthrown!”…

    “The facts never seem to matter.”

    That is exactly correct and in this and many other cases, they never, ever will. Larry Elder’s points were laid out very explicitly when the grand jury presented its findings to the national media. Most people watched it. Then AG Holder led another investigation that concluded exactly the same thing and that was also widely communicated.

    It wouldn’t be any different if Obama himself explained it to them in person, stomped on their dog and set them on fire. People would find a way to explain that away. “Trump made him do it!” or something.

    But it helps to keep making the case. One thing that more and more blacks are realizing (and even more whites) lately is that most everything about the case for the systemic racism narrative is a lie.

    What is really hitting home right now is that Pew research released this week reporting that only 1 out of 6 protestors/looters are black. An astounding 47% are young whites, largely white trust babies self-identifying as women. Next are Latinos and Asians (my bet is they mean Middle Eastern Asians). A black group in CHAZ was shouted down for protesting that blacks were being shut out of the discussions and activities!

    So these videos may eventually become part of some important black libraries should they break through their own black leadership corruption.

I don’t get what “we” can do but make phone calls, as I do, write emails and donate, as I do…
I’m not going to go out looking for protests to counter protest. These people are violent and the police apparently won’t help you when your attacked.

I would like to know, I will do it as long as it’s not going to get me killed

    lc in reply to gonzotx. | June 27, 2020 at 8:12 am

    I do that as well.
    What else can we do? Share the truth with others and have them pass it along.
    Videos by Larry Elder, columns by Thomas Sowell, Victor Davis Hanson, the clip of the BLM founder stating they are marxists trained by known terrorists, are a start. And of course columns by the Prof.

    I believe the main thing is to become aware that there are black people out there telling the story correctly. Some have been around a long time. Larry Elder, Shelby Steele, etc… Others just arrived. Candace Owen, Sonny Johnson, Tim Scott, etc.. They ARE telling the story and to the right audience. Black Americans may end up solving the problem themselves.

    The way for us to help is to amplify their influence to the WHITE community so they get it too. To me, THAT is the main hope for breaking through all of this dirty money and stranglehold on the Big Lie. Non-black people need to know that blacks are now on the same page and that they are leading the way.

What a year 2020 has been for Truth.

Michael Brown was a clown
Mugged a clerk
What a jerk
Messed with the man
Got hisself jammed
Now he’s a layin in the ground.

Start by letting your kids and grandkids hear a view not given to them by social media. Lend a voice in support of what you believe. Remember the duty to protect is an officers oath and moral obligation if not necessarily mandated by law and that officer discretion like any other power can be corrupted. Just don’t paint with too wide a brush. And, seeking truth will always matter.

Isn’t it strange that the very people accused of racism, show measured restraint when the mobs destroy public and private property, loot, assault the innocent, etc? If indeed we were institutionally racist, if we did not care for black lives, if we valued property more than their lives, would we not end this uprising in a day and night by ending them? If we are truly racist, why has there been no call to mobilize and open fire?

Could it be the truth is we value life more than things? That we recognize the value of of all lives and living in peace?

For a few days now I’ve been thinking about that old song “One Tin Soldier” … and wondering whether the angry mob will wake up to the truth before it’s too late.

    JusticeDelivered in reply to MrE. | June 27, 2020 at 7:55 am

    If we were ending them it would not be because of race, it would be because of their actions. Those using Molotovs, rioting, assaulting, murdering should be ended, right then.

    Those organizing should prosecuted and jailed under Federal law. Where they can convicted of treason, they should be executed.

    I suspect that there are people outside America playing a role,if that is the case they should be sent a personal Hellfire.

    The gloves must come off.

      Justice is a false god not worthy of worship. The Social Justice Warriors worship that false god to their eternal shame. Don’t make the same mistake.

      Only the Creator of the Universe is worthy of worship.

      How do you end them right then?

      As Gibby stated, my view is a faith-based one; akin to Eph 6 – that our battle is not with flesh and blood, but with the spirit of evil. People have given themselves over to anger and opened the door to all kinds of evil. Accordingly I’ve been praying for those who have given themselves over to destruction to have a Damascus road experience. Saul/Paul had one and it humbled him for life. It’s the only lasting solution for the brute beast in all of us.

Do a web search on marlene pinnock/Daniel Andrew. Read those headlines. Those headlines were designed to inflame the outrage mob (which succeeded). The officer in this case knew pinnock and had dealt with her before. pinnock made a habit of illegally entering freeways in central LA, putting her life and the lives/safety of many others at risk. pinnock resisted and Andrew used the training he received and took her into custody. Was it ugly? Yes. Legally justified? Yes. But msm “reporters” breathlessly threw “grandma” and every other sympathetic adjective into their outrage headlines in regards to pinnock. They also tagged Andrew with words such as ‘brutal, violent, savagely.’ I assure you, there are some grandmas out there that can put up one heII of a fight. Throw in mental illness, drugs/alcohol, and even a fight with a grandma can turn deadly for everyone in the confrontation. I’m not sure what exactly happened to Daniel Andrew. My suspicion is, he got a “Fight Club” deal from the state, meaning he still receives his monthly pay/benefits and will get a retirement in 20 years without having to show up for work. Or the lump-sum equivalent. That’s irrelevant. The point being: An officer can do everything within the law, the agencies policies and procedure, and STILL have their life ruined. Not just their career, their LIFE. If anyone thinks Darren Wilson will ever have a “normal” life after Ferguson, they are very mistaken. Society is going to get their ‘Atlas Shrugged’ moment regarding law enforcement and it’s not going to be pretty.

Great video by Larry Elder.

>> It’s worth a watch, because the truth matters. <<

It is true. And it's worth a watch. But there is scant evidence that the "truth" matters to the Left.

If "truth" mattered, Democrats would not be claiming:

– Police are hunting and shooting black men with impunity.

– That men who like playing dress up to trick and deceive others about their gender are females.

– That chopping into tiny pieces developing human beings is "women's health".

– That words, or even silence, is a form of violence.

– That females are oppressed and discriminated against.

– That the modest warming over the past 150 years is "evidence" of a "climate crisis."

– That the State can force the provision of universal health coverage, cover pre-existent conditions, and healthcare costs will decline.

Virtually NOTHING Democrats CLAIM they believe is based in truth. I say claim, becuase I"m convinced many of the pseudo "intellectuals" know they are lying in their debates but don't care because they prefer the policy.

On this blog, you've convincingly covered the lies told about the Breitbart/Shirley Sherrod incident; Oberlin college/bakery; Israel; and so on.

It doesn't seem to matter to the smug, self righteous Left.

An update on the death of David Underwood. It now seems likely that he was murdered by Steven Carrillo, a member of a right extremist group, rather than by leftist rioters. While I don’t trust the media, it does not seem as though they are making this up.

    gibbie in reply to gibbie. | June 27, 2020 at 11:10 am

    Edit: right wing extremist group

    Mac45 in reply to gibbie. | June 27, 2020 at 12:47 pm

    From charging documents and media reports, it appears that Underwood was most likely shot by Carillo with Justus being the driver of the van. Carillo is affiliated, in some manner, with white extremist groups. However, there has been no claim, by federal authorities, that Underwood was targeted because of his race. At this point, Carillo’s exact motivation is unknown, but is most likely tied to his anti-government philosophy and a desire to foment an armed uprising.

    The interesting thing about Carillo and Justus, is that, while dangerous, they were fundamentally idiots with guns. They did everything wrong, from not realizing that there were surveillance cameras surrounding the courthouse, to failing to dispose of the van used in the attack, to using unsecure communications. Total amateurs. Amateurism is killing this country and the world.

      gibbie in reply to Mac45. | June 27, 2020 at 2:49 pm

      No. Wicked people are killing this country and the world.

      FOAF in reply to Mac45. | June 27, 2020 at 3:49 pm

      I guess Carrillo is a “white Hispanic”, right?

      Mac45 in reply to Mac45. | June 27, 2020 at 5:24 pm

      While the wicker are, indeed, waging war against this nation, and much of the rest of the world, it is largely incompetent idiots who are actually destroying it. The suicide bombers of the world are stupid. Looters, in today’s surveillance society, are stupid. Drive-by shooters, in any age, are stupid. Actors, who attempt to direct fake racial attacks, are stupid. They are all incompetent amateurs.

      David Underwood was killed by an incompetent Air Force sergeant who was, apparently, trying to make some vague social statement but was so stupid that he left a trail of honking big bread crumbs right ot his own door. This resulted in an LEO being killed and his Carrillo’s accomplice being identified because these two idiots used their own cell phones.

      The Russiagate conspirators used Peter Stzrok and his girlfriend [Boris and Natasha] as couriers to avoid leaving an electronic train concerning their activities. These two complete maladroits then proceed to use cellular phones, belonging to the FBI, to make a real time log of the entire conspiracy, including the actors and their actions.

      And, it only gets worse. The media, medical professionals and politicians are incapable of keeping their stories straight about the COVID virus. They contradict, not only each other, but themselves. And, they make no effort to cover their own a**es.

      People today consider themselves to be freaking geniuses and everyone else to be stupid. A significant portion of the population has no idea what they are doing and are too stupid to even realize that. So they go out and do stupid things and end up creating huge messes that take the competent members of society away from their necessary endeavors and forces them to clean up the messes made by the idiots living among us.

      JusticeDelivered in reply to Mac45. | June 28, 2020 at 10:42 am

      “they were fundamentally idiots with guns.”

      That sounds like most inner city riffraff, I would add usually stolen.

    Milhouse in reply to gibbie. | June 28, 2020 at 1:16 am

    As far as I know there is no “Boogaloo movement”. The Boogaloo is something that i>many many people fear is coming, and would like if at all possible to avoid, but are preparing for in case it can’t be. And there are some idiots, such as this one apparently, who want to bring it on, the sooner the better, presumably on the theory that the longer it takes to come the worse it will be. But they do not constitute a movement or a group, and as far as I know there is no movement with that name.

      Mac45 in reply to Milhouse. | June 28, 2020 at 12:33 pm

      The “Boogaloo Movement” is a made-up boogie man for the liberal progressive left. In reality, there is no organized movement, on the right, to start a civil war.

      What happened is the Obama Administration and its draconian racial agenda. In 2008, right-wing racist organizations, such as the KKK and most civil militia, had all but disappeared, in America. They were gone. Barack Obama is elected President and his administration begins to publicly support the minority race baiting groups. By 2010, this begins to generate a spontaneous, disorganized push back. This does include individuals and some very small, fragmented groups. As the various governments continue to favor certain groups’ interests over those of the majority, this spontaneous reaction has increased among individuals.

      Now, unlike AntiFa, BLM, and various Muslim terrorist organizations, which are funded and controlled by an anonymous oligarchy, those people and organizations labelled as part of the Boogaloo movement are almost totally decentralized and not funded by any outside agency. They comprise an organic response to a very real threat But, the left has to project the same organizational construct on an organic response by individual conservatives which exists in liberal groups. The old “vast right-wing conspiracy” which the Clintons used to tout.
