SORT BY Relevancy
It’s hard to find an uplifting angle on the events in Ferguson. Conservatives have drawn many familiar morals: that the media is ravenous for manufactured controversy, and will shamelessly exploit any tragedy to that end; that the Left will callously seize any opportunity to stoke racial tensions for political gain; that regrettable numbers of people prefer the satisfaction of rioting to the hard work of self-examination and community improvement.
Here is the point, in a nutshell. Minorities and impoverished Americans feel screwed by the system. They feel like pawns in the hands of a massive, incomprehensible, frighteningly invasive, and callously unfeeling bureaucratic system. This, surely, is something conservatives can understand. Middle-class conservatives are angry and frustrated because they feel screwed by “the system.” Guess what? The angry residents of Ferguson (and their sympathizers) feel the same way. We may have more common ground than we realize.

Ferguson did not come out of nowhere. America has had a hidden agenda since the 1600s of racism, genocide, and militarism that can be traced on a critical path to the present. This critical path is the course we are on today, and it has to be understood that the country needs a new direction and transformational leadership to get there. Today we will shine a flashlight on the above seeds of destruction sown into the foundation of the American empire from the very beginning:
Racism, Genocide, and Militarism from the beginning to the present.
The Evolution of Fascism in America.
Operation Paperclip, the New Jim Crow, and the Prison Industrial Complex.
Bioweapons, the JFK Assassination, and the People's Temple.
Global Pandemics, Agribusiness, and Africa.
As always, you are cordially invited to call in.
