Civil unrest? I guess the news crews don't have the resources to cover the civil unrest, since they seem to be primarily showing the criminal violence that has been perpetrated by uncivil members of the community who seem to be using Michael Brown as a convenient excuse to get their Trayvon on.

At the Bundy ranch, white anti-government militia wanna-bes pointed loaded firearms at federal employees and law enforcement officers in the support of a criminal, and nothing happened.

In Ferguson, MO, a young African American was killed by a police officer for jaywalking, and the city and county police have attacked the mostly African American citizens with baton rounds, tear gas, armored vehicles, and riot gear while threatening them with automatic rifles.

Where are all the 2nd Amendment open carry zealots to defend people who are actually under attack by an out of control government?

Yeah, I thought so.

The black thug got exactly what it asked for when it attempted to sieze the Officer's weapon, I hope this teaches the rest of these darkies a lesson. The only reason this obsolete farm equipment is even here, is because Lincoln was assasinated before he could ship them all to Liberia.

Dallas TS: a white "sovereign citizen" opens fire on firefighters called out to a fire in a dumpster in a fancy neighborhood. Obviously, an ambush. No firefighters are hit. Man continues to fire at Dallas SWAT and police officers. White man plants explosive devices. Eventually, a police negotiator talks the man out. No police hurt. White man with a gun not hurt.

Ferguson, Missouri: black kid killed while hands in the air with no gun, shot several times by police.

Where is the pro-2nd-Amendment, open-carry zealots' loud, outraged defense of people who are actually under attack by an out of control government?

Yeah, I thought so.

We've all seen the multiple photos on the internet of a police tactical squad in full body armor pointing their weapons at an unarmed black man walking in public space in an American community...

If they weren't rioting and looting, they wouldn't be getting gassed, batoned or threatened with automatic weapons.

Call Al or Jessie.....

It is the thugs in the riots that are out of control in this situation. Bundy and his crew were not out destroying a town, they were defending. Your thugs are tearing apart everything in site. Get the difference?

Yeah I thought so.....

Kalamazoo, MI: white man carrying a loaded rifle shouts obscenities at the police, grabs his crotch, gives them the finger, is openly hostile to officers on the scene. Refuses to drop his weapon, refuses breathalyzer test, resists arrest. His rifle was returned to him the next day and no charges were pressed.

Ferguson, MO: black kid with no gun who had done nothing wrong, on his knees with his hands in the air pleading with the police not to shoot, shot multiple times by police. His dead body left lying in the street for hours.

Dallas TX: Four moms having lunch to discuss gun control are confronted by 40 white men armed with assault rifles, many crouched as if in a line of battle, terrorizing the moms and other restaurant patrons. No police involvement. No arrests.

Ferguson MO: Any form of protest of the police is being met with teargas and rubber bullets. Yell “Don’t Shoot” with your hands up, get tear gassed. Hold a sign that says "Stop Police Brutality," get tear gassed. Yell for the police to get out of the neighborhood from your backyard, get tear gassed.

See reality.

Black Americans in Ferguson who are engaged in nonviolent, peaceful protest are being tear-gassed and shot with rubber bullets, while white Americans who come armed, threatening civilians and the police are treated with deference by authorities who withdrawal.
Which is it

Vile, blatant, overt racism, such as being posted in this thread, is a pathology confined to conservative Americans only. You simply never see virulent shit like that from liberals.

So the question is - which comes first? Do repugnant racists become conservatives or do conservatives become repugnant racists?

Or is there a common source for both diseases?

Are you there among the protesters?

Your reality and mine seem to differ.

I read and heard on the news.....that violence and harm was started by someone in the crowd, the police said it was no longer peaceful when they hurt others, they called for the crowds to disband, then all heII broke loose.

I doubt we will ever really know who is telling the truth, both sides have plenty of reasons to lie.
