Many of us have sat and watched in horror as another American city erupts in violence. We have seen it all to often recently. Los Angeles, Seattle, New York, Ferguson, Baltimore… What is driving this civil unrest in American cities?
Racism seems to be the calling card of the protestors. With neat little slogans like #BlackLivesMatter, we are force fed the narrative of the innocent black youth murdered by the evil white man. However, this never seems to pan out after the facts are released. Baltimore is the latest such stumble in the “Racist White Cop” dialog. As indictments are handed down against the 6 cops implicated in the death of a career criminal youth, we find out that half the officers involved were black. This hasn’t deterred some people from their racism crusade. I have already heard people say “Cops aren’t black or white, they are blue. And blue hates black”. This is truly a stupid concept that would seem to be calling every black police officer a self hating racist.
Some people have also called this “Institutional Racism”. It isn’t the cops, but the system that is racist. This is also an ignorant idea. This is 2015. Institutional racism ended 50 years ago. In todays PC climate, being a minority is no longer a detriment, and some may argue that it is actually beneficial. And although I might be more inclined to believe that there are still pockets of remaining institutional racism in small, predominantly white, low population towns, it is definitely not in Baltimore. Baltimore is run by a black, female Mayor. The Mayor before her was also black. The police commissioner is black, the majority of the town leaders are black, half the police force is black. Baltimore is a bastion of liberal ideas, and the left wing agenda. If there is any institutionalized racism going on in Baltimore, it isn’t against blacks.
Police brutality is a viable option for what is causing the civil unrest in America’s cities. Although it is highly unlikely considering only small amounts of police brutality actually lead to civil unrest. However, the increasing militarization of the police as a way to justify continued spending on military programs that are no longer needed has had the unsettling side effect of turning our police into a military, and turning us into the enemy of that military. This is even more unsettling considering the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 that specifically forbids the U.S. federal government from using its military personnel to act as domestic law enforcement personnel. However, in sight of the recent civil unrest, some people are pushing the federal government to abolish local law enforcement in favor of a federal police force. This is a horrible idea that will ultimately lead to the downfall of freedom in America. This is the type of idea that leads directly to the slavery of the masses, and is the type of power that our forefather were determined to not let the federal government have. The very thought of such an anti American idea being brought forth in response to these events bring into question weather these civil unrest events are being orchestrated by conspirators to take control of the population by removing the Posse Comitatus act.
As mentioned above, this could be a conspiracy by the federal government to institute a national police force. This is currently forbidden by U.S. law, so a strong argument would have to be made to change the law, and it appears the civil unrest in Americas cities could be that argument. Other evidence that supports this claim is a report by Fox news that sites an unnamed data mining firm who claims that up to 50 social media accounts that were pivotal in instigating the riots in Baltimore have also been pivotal in inciting violence in Ferguson as well as other protests across the nation. These “Professional Protestors” could be operatives of the federal government that are instigating violence to convince people to allow the removal of the protections of Posse Comitatus so that the government can institute a federal police force to effectively enslave us.
A contrary conspiracy theory would be that these professional protestors are white supremacists that are inciting violence in black communities to show the world how the black man is “nothing but a bunch of savages”. This theory is supported by the fact that many of the anti police brutality social media accounts are run by self proclaimed members of the hacker collective Anonymous that is known for its racist ideology. However, the core strength of the hacker group known as Anonymous is that anyone can be Anonymous. It is not a strict group. Therefore race baiters, racists, anarchists, or government agents could be acting under the guise of Anonymous and no one would be able to tell who the real perpetrator is. For all we know, Anonymous could be just a bunch of internet trolls and anarchists that just enjoy seeing the violence.
