The Coming Anarchy? More Thoughts on Ferguson

One of my favorite poems is William Bulter Yeats the Second Coming, which begins:
Turning and turning in the widening gyre  
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere  
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst   
Are full of passionate intensity.

Some educated fool at Georgetown Univ. wrote this self-hating foolishness:
Oliver Friedfeld, a Georgetown University (GU) senior, penned an oped last week in which he argued that he deserved to be robbed at gunpoint due to his "privilege." Friedfeld is a student at the university's School of Foreign Service, a top-ranking entry point to the U.S. State Department -- many may find this fact worrisome.

When I read about the Episcopal Church letting Muslims hold services in the National Cathedral, ordaining gays and making them bishops and conducting gay marriages, it makes me think that the establishment that founded this country and the elites don't have the will to defend it any more. Meanwhile, feral blacks, which the media invariably refuses to identify by race and calls "teens," are allowed to attack and murder whites and Asians with impunity. If a police officer tries to enforce the law, he risks getting lynched by the mob. Consider:

A violent Friday night riot by Ferguson protesters in San Francisco, who attempted to block Black Friday shopping, resulted in five police officers being badly injured and damaged one officer's face so badly that he could be permanently disfigured.

Here's a refreshing, honest view from a black police chief:

A Black Cop’s Tough Words for Mike Brown

The father of two young men, Willingham said he is pained by the unarmed youngster’s death. In no way, he said, did Brown deserve to die for what began as petty theft. As a black man, he felt conflicted about what he came to came to view, at least from a cop’s perspective, as the right grand jury decision.
“What happened to Brown far outweighed what he did. But what he did set in motion a series of events that ended in his life being lost. If he doesn’t do that, the officer doesn’t have to respond, they don’t cross paths. If you’re a young black man in America, and you go down to the corner store and snatch things that don’t belong to you, and now somebody calls the police on you, you’ve just set in process a chain of events that, God only knows how will turn out.

“So to see this thing magnified from a racial aspect, I feel like we’re doing an injustice to all the young black men in America who are watching this unfold. We need to reinforce the message that decision-making, the power of choices, is also important. In an instant that officer made a choice, just like Brown made a choice.”

Meanwhile, on another note, a South Texas judge gets probation for dealing with drug thugs:

MCALLEN, Texas -- A corrupt Texas Justice of the Peace has pleaded guilty to taking money from a convicted drug trafficker who worked for a bail bondsman in a bond rigging scheme.
On Monday morning, former Justice of the Peace Ismael “Melo” Ochoa pleaded guilty to two counts of bribery and one count of money laundering. Ochoa took a plea deal which resulted in a 10-year probation sentence, a $10,000 fine and $5,000 in reparations to the county.



  1. The protests in Ferguson and in NYC are centered around the "too close" relationship between the police and prosecutors. One can make an argument this situation exists in Kerr County, but the situation seems to be off limits for public discussion.

  2. "feral blacks" ?????

    I would be shocked by this "wordsmithing", but knowing the piece originated from Kerrville, I understand.
