The Ferguson Effect

Posted in Politics, Society on November 7th, 2015

After a long decline, crime – especially violent crime – is again rising across America with the greatest spikes unsurprisingly being in what the more politically correct term the “urban zones.” This is an issue with numerous causes but one of the prime direct causes and a cause that is connected to- or enabling of other causes is the “Ferguson Effect.”

Black Protests - #BlackLivesMatter
Kill Cops…Because #BlackLivesMatter

The heads of both the FBI and the DEA agree that the “Ferguson Effect” – that of anti-police, pro-criminal protesters taunting the police and immediately trying to video them for later persecution – is beginning to have Cass Sunstein’s “Chilling Effect” upon police officers’ willingness to perform the duties to their fullest extent. Add to that the sudden trend of the Blacks assassinating or attempting to assassinate random law enforcement personal as part of their #BlackLivesMatter “movement” and it’s not too far off the mark or difficult to conclude that the police are under siege. Add to that the fact that every time an incident occur between law enforcement and some ghetto thug the Obama Regime send in its “civil rights” stormtroopers to prosecute lawfare against the police and the municipalities that employ them them, and it’s impossible to conclude that these besieged police aren’t cutoff with no support in sight.

Police anxiety in the era of ever-present cellphone cameras and viral videos partly explains why violent crime has risen in several large U.S. cities this year, FBI Director James Comey said Friday.

They told me, ‘We feel like we’re under siege and we don’t feel much like getting out of our cars,’

— FBI Director James Comey


I think there’s something to” the so-called “Ferguson effect.”

I rely on the chiefs and the sheriffs who are saying that they have seen or heard behavioral changes among the men and women of their forces. The manifestation of it may be a reluctance to engage with suspects.

— Acting DEA Administrator Chuck Rosenberg

While I generally agree with Comey’s and Rosenberg’s conclusions about the Ferguson Effect’s impact on police morale and willingness to engage with suspects, especially when those suspects are Blacks, I think that both men have bowed to political correctness and the desire to be punished by Obama when crafting their statements.

Firstly – the trend of photographing and videoing police officers in the course of the duties, and releasing their personal information when possible, was started by the cyberterrorist group, Anonymous in a direct attempt to have the officers and their families murdered. Nor has the behavior and motivation changed greatly.

Secondly – there’s been sharp uptick in the level of permissiveness displayed by many when it comes to violence against police officers as compared to the past, even the recent past. This can be and is exemplified by Obama’s defense of Black Lives Matter movement, which has stoked the fires of Black rage against the police and caused the murder, attempted murder, and assault of police officers across America.

Thirdly, though tied up with and related to the second point – That permissiveness towards violence against police officers is rooted in an ethnoguiltism-based permissiveness towards Black criminality, Black rage, and Black victimology. Not only does this pandering enable the violence inherent to- and endemic in Black protests, it excuses, tacitly endorses, and enables that very same increase in violent crime that Comey and Rosenberg lament.

As society seems to be dead set upon trending towards both criminalizing the police and fostering Black crime, if we don’t end White Rule in the ghettos and/or take drastic steps to mitigate Black crime, I believe that the current increase in violent crime, still at this point a minor and localized trend, is going to drastically expand and worsen…and I doubt, not entirely unhappily, that America at large is ready to do either.

An Unsafe Opinion

Posted in Society on October 6th, 2015

Bryan StascavageLast month Bryan Stascavage, a 30-year-old Wesleyan University (WSA) economics major and decorated veteran who served two tours as an military intelligence analyst for the US Army in Iraq penned an unsafe opinion about the Black Live Matter (#BlackLivesMatter) movement in an op-ed for his the school newspaper, The Wesleyan Argus. The previous winner of WSA’s Chadbourne Prize was shocked by the result.

His op-ed, “Why Black Lives Matter Isn’t What You Think,” wasn’t a glowing endorsement of the Blacks’ movement and, therefor, was met with a shitstorm of hate and vitriol from the Blacks and the Liberals and Progressives who pander to- and enable them.

That was, in itself, completely to be expected and it’s hard to generate any true sympathy for Mr. Stascavage who should have known what he was buying for himself by not adhering to the Left’s and their minority sharecroppers’ orthodox dogma of total submission to their doctrine.

No. What is horrific is a subset of these vermin’s response, not against Mr. Stascavage directly, but against the The Wesleyan Argus which published his opinion piece and, thereby, exposed the student body to it. The Liberals, Progressives, and their minority sharecroppers are demanding that Wesleyan University defund the Argus because of it.

A petition demanding the Wesleyan Argus lose funding unless it meets certain demands has signatures from at least 172 students, staff and recent alumni. Signatories threatened to boycott the paper because they said it fails to “provide a safe space for the voices of students of color and we are doubtful that it will in the future.”

They also demand that commitment be made by the Argus to create work study/course credit positions; a monthly report on allocation of funds and leadership structure; a required once-per-semester Social Justice/Diversity training for all student publications; active recruitment and advertisement; and open space on the front page in the publication dedicated to marginalized groups/voices, specifying that if no submissions are received, The Argus will print a section labeled “for your voice.”

This is what now passes for students in these Affirmative Action times and in the wake of what the “Civil Rights” movement has degenerated into. They demand that White voices be silenced in favor of “Social Justice” and providing Liberal, Progressive, and Minority students total freedom from any opinion or subject matter that might may them uncomfortable in some way, shape, or form by not rigorously adhering to their sensitivities.

Painted In Blood & Irony

Posted in Art, Society on October 3rd, 2015

During the morning of Tuesday, September 29, 2015 a street artist, identified by friends as Antonio Ramos, in Oakland, CA was gunned down and killed while working on a community art project, the Oakland Superheroes Mural Project which is a project sponsored by Oakland’s Attitudinal Healing Connection.

Straight Outta Oakland
Straight Outta Oakland – Painted In Blood & Irony

Yes, this is sad. Indeed, it approaches the level of tragedy. It should, however, have been an expected outcome. It’s not rational to believe that one can to empower individuals to be self-aware and inspired through arts, creativity and education, making positive choices to break the cycle of violence for themselves and their communities in the ghettos and barrios. Crime and depravity are too entrenched for such efforts to work at any meaningful level and too many of the population of those zones will actively work against such efforts.

At best, such civic minded entertainments should await comprehensive law enforcement purges of the ghettos and barrios before being attempted. Otherwise, the street art ends up, as in Mr. Ramos’ sad case, painted in blood and irony.
