Mmmmm….Black Tea

I’m really more of a coffee drinker but now and then I could really go for a hot cup of black tea. It’s even better if you put some cream in it. 😉

MORE Ferguson Protests

Posted in Politics, Society on May 21st, 2015

Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment (MORE), a re-branded cell of ACORN, is responsible for hiring many of the protestors that incited the feral violence and insurrection of the Blacks in Ferguson. In a delightfully ironic twist, these same agents provocateurs are now protesting MORE because they didn’t get their paychecks.

FrontPage Magazine reports that MORE  had contracted to pay the protesters $5,000 / month to demonstrate in Ferguson but has failed to #CutTheCheck.

Blacks’ MORE Sit-In In Ferguson

The protests of MORE seem peaceful – so far – but a bit feisty. That, of course, has been proven to be able to change on a moment’s notice however, with violence always a credible threat whenever Blacks protest anything – especially if Whites are on the receiving end.

Ah Schadenfreude. It warms the cockles of my cold heart. 😉

An Unsocial Revolution

The Revolution Will Not Be Tweeted

This pretty much sums it up. No cohesive force for change can come from #Hashtaggery or any other form of impersonal, social-media-centric communication platform. Revolutions need leaders to shape and manage the goals and methodologies of the movement and Twitter and other such platforms don’t provide that.

At most and best, all that #Hashtaggery can provide is a generalized awareness and emotional connection with a general ideal and near-instant communication of meeting places and times. At worst, it creates a climate of generalized outrage that capitalized upon by individuals and groups looking for more generalized chaos, e.g., ISIS’ recruiting of Muslims within America’s border.
