The Ferguson Conspiracy

Riots break out in Ferguson: Gunfire, molotovs and tear gas reported

There is a bitter divide on the subject of the Ferguson, Missouri riots of late November 2014, which makes it hard to write about. But the bitter divide is itself part of the conspiracy.

Suppose they gave a riot and nobody came? So much preparation had gone into the event: The mass media had been repeatedly announcing, “Riots Expected After Grand Jury Decides”; The Missouri National Guard had gone to the trouble of mobilizing their weekend warriors; The mainstream “news” persons had all journeyed to Ferguson and set up their cameras and satellite dishes. The stage had been erected with much effort and planning. After such careful preparation, it would have been downright rude for rioters to snub the event.

Suppose they gave a riot and nobody came? How embarrassing this would have been for the “news” fakers! Can you just see them, standing in front of their cameras saying, “Uhh… Nothing much seems to be happening here… Back to you Ted.”

Instead the “news” fakers got their riot, and that drew in viewers which in turn increased newsfaker advertising revenues. And the newspapers sold like hotcakes off a griddle, pleasing advertisers which largely subsidize the sheets.

But what is the larger conspiracy? “Conspiracy Theorist Behind Sandy Hook ‘Inside Job’ Narrative Calls Ferguson A Big Business Scam”, reported B2C (Business 2 Community) on December 12, 2014. The Ferguson riot boils down to a big business real estate battle, according to one Jim Stone, who implies he is a freelance journalist. Allegedly, some businesses in Ferguson had refused to sell out to a development project. “The idea, it seems, is that once protesting and rioting started, there would be cover for burning down those businesses that refused to sell out. Without adequate insurance and without government aid, these stores would be unable to rebuild, and would be forced to sell out to the same big businesses that they’d previously refused.” [1]

At Jim Stone’s web site, the original article is dated December 9, 2014 and carries the title, “The real reason for Ferguson riots: Mom and Pop refused to sell”. Some high level super rich corporate types decided they wanted to take the main avenue of Ferguson and turn it into a large strip mall, and mom and pop stores refused to sell, claims Stone. Citing ABC News, it is seen how many of the fires occurred along Florissant Avenue, where various businesses were destroyed.

My own tentative theory is that the Commies are somehow involved. Before you laugh this off, consider something in Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s novel, The First Circle: Eleanor Roosevelt is coming to visit one of the Gulags. One group of miserable prisoners is surprised to find they are suddenly treated quite well: they are given clean clothes, cigarettes, and books to read. The prisoners are also told what to say to Eleanor when she arrives. So the big day comes and there is Eleanor Roosevelt. An official guides her through the facility then “at random” (really pre-arranged) he chooses the cell block which has been prettied up. In comes Eleanor, much impressed by the kind treatment given to Soviet political prisoners. “Do you have any complaints or concerns?” she asks. “Yes”, say the prisoners (on cue). “We are concerned about the plight of the negroes in America.” (Read it for yourself; it’s better described in Solzhenitsyn’s book.)

Fast-forward to November 2014.  We know that Hillary Clinton “channels” Eleanor Roosevelt in séances. The Democrat Party has just suffered another “shellacking” in the election. Their trouble was not so much pro-Republican as disillusion among Democrats who weren’t motivated to vote. President Barack Obama even mentioned having heard the voice of the 72-year low voter turnout, the voice of the plus-60 percent of eligible voters who hadn’t participated. So how do you motivate voters for the 2016 election? Answer: Stir up their passions. Get the professoriate and the teacher’s union types to mobilize the students. What do the students get? They get better grades for “apple polishing” (pleasing teacher). This Democrat mobilization is a repeat of “black churches being burned down in the south”, a mobilization theme from the 1990s. Anyhow, this is just my tentative theory and I know there is a bitter divide. But the bitter divide theoretically engages the electorate and then at least you get a minimal 50 percent voter participation in 2016. Otherwise, suppose you gave an election and nobody came? That would be downright rude.
