These are violent times just as predicted in Scripture which warns:
Gen_6:11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. Gen_6:13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
Mat_24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
The Ferguson fiasco is more evidence of the mentality permeating the mindset of today’s entitlement culture- fostered in no small way by the narrative of liberals, purposeful propagation of the MSM, and obfuscation of the O’bama Admin- E’ric H’older in particular. Truth is no longer factual; it is whatever advances the narrative certain groups are promoting.
Isaiah 59:14 And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.
From the article ST. SWISHER SWEET AND THE LIES THAT SET FERGUSON ON FIRE Tim Dunkin writes:
Blame for Ferguson and other riots has been placed on “institutional racism,” that America just has a system which is so stacked against black Americans that they will never be able to overcome the obstacles and make it in the world. This is complete, utter nonsense. Completely. Utterly. It’s a cop out. It’s a lie that has been fed to generations of people so as to keep them dependent upon liberals and the Democrat Party. The fact that it is a lie is shown by the fact that there are many, many successful African-Americans out there – doctors, lawyers, engineers, writers, scientists, business-owners – who have made it in life.
But all the role models out there for this who are in the public eye – people like Clarence Thomas, Condoleeza Rice, Allen West – are derided by liberals and race-baiters like Al Sharpton as “sellouts” and “oreos” for doing the very things that the Left tries to tell African-Americans that “endemic racism” is keeping them from doing ! Don’t you see what is going on? Racism is not “keeping you down,” LIBERALS are. They tell you that you’ll never be able to make it in life, and then they try to destroy in your eyes the very people who proved them wrong. It’s a scam, and the bulk of the black community in America is the mark.
Why do they do this? To keep you voting for them, that’s why. By making you dependent on them, they have made you subservient to them. African-Americans are at the bottom of the totem pole in the hierarchy of who the Democrat Party and liberals care about and cater to. If there’s a disagreement between African-American desires and those of the gays – the gays will win. If there is one between African-Americans and illegal aliens, the illegals will win (ask yourself why the Democrats are so keen on importing millions of low-wage illegal aliens who are taking jobs primarily from African-Americans). Black Americans are at the bottom of the heap, but are convinced that they “need” the handouts that the Democrats offer, so they keep voting for Democrats, who in turn keep them “in their place,” perpetuating the cycle from generation to generation.
The African-American community is plagued by “pastors” who do not preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ, but who instead peddle a nasty mixture of social “justice” theology and racial grievance-mongering. The Gospel changes lives after it saves the soul. This Gospel, unfortunately, is being held back and hidden by too many of these “pastors” (which church is the “Reverend” Jesse Jackson over, again?). In its place is a “gospel” of grievance, hate, anger, bitterness, envy, coveteousness, and blaming others. Instead of encouraging personal responsibility, it forbids it, and replaces it with blaming “whitey” and shifting blame to everyone but the ones who refuse to do anything to break the dependency cycle and lift themselves out of poverty.
Black Americans are told the lie that they have to riot and commit violence if they want to get what they want. Yet, this is self-defeating. We hear complaints from black America’s self-appointed spokesmen about the “food deserts” in many of our nation’s inner cities – places where there simply aren’t enough stores available to supply the needs of the residents for groceries and other necessities of life. This is a problem that could be solved by solutions proposed decades ago by conservative Republicans like Jack Kemp, such as enterprise zones and other incentives for businesses to move into inner cities, providing jobs and services. But let me ask you a question – what potential business owner in their right mind would start a small business in a community when he or she knows that it could be looted and burned to the ground in the next riot? By listening to the voices of hatred and violence, African-Americans in many of these communities have allowed the very conditions they decry to be created in the first place.
Just as with Trayvon Martin – another thug who was nevertheless lionized as the epitome of childlike innocence (and who was nicknamed “St. Skittles” by those who knew that the media narrative about him was utter nonsense) – Michael Brown was no angel, despite the attempt to deceive Americans about the events in Ferguson. Brown – whom I guess we can call “St. Swisher Sweet” – committed a crime and then proceeded to escalate the severity of his encounter with the police by initiating violence and attempting to mortally harm the officer with whom he was dealing.
Michael Brown died not because of “white racism” or “racist police,” but because he made stupid choices and lived a lifestyle that finds its bases in the self-defeating lies told to him by his community and its leaders.
