It took several months for the first iteration of the Ferguson Effect to become obvious. Michael Brown was fatally shot by a Ferguson, Missouri, police officer in August 2014, triggering local riots and a national narrative about lethally racist police. Officers backed off proactive policing in minority neighborhoods, having been told that such discretionary enforcement was racially oppressive. By early 2015, the resulting spike in shootings and homicides had become patent and would lead to an additional 2,000 black homicide victims in 2015 and 2016, compared with 2014 numbers.
Todays violent-crime increasecall it Ferguson Effect 2.0 or the Minneapolis Effecthas come on with a speed and magnitude that make Ferguson 1.0 seem tranquil. George Floyds death at the hands of Minneapolis police in late May was justly condemnedbut the event has now spurred an outpouring of contempt against the pillars of law and order that has no precedent in American history. Every day, another mainstream institutionfrom McDonalds to Harvarddenounces the police, claiming without evidence that law enforcement is a threat to black lives.
To be sure, the first manifestation of the Black Lives Matter movement had a mouthpiece in the Oval Office, lacking now. It doesnt matter. Presidential imprimatur or no, the reborn Black Lives Matter has gained billions of dollars in corporate support, more billions in free round-the-clock media promotion, and a ruthless power to crush dissent from the now-universal narrative about murderous police bigots. During the two weeks of national anarchy that followed the death of George Floyd, cops were shot, slashed, and assaulted; their vehicles and station houses were firebombed and destroyed. American elites stayed silent. Since then, police have continued to be shot at and attacked; the elites remain silent.

And make no mistake. It is on the mayors and police chiefs in those cities. You want change? Change your vote as the first step.
Yeah, that mouthpiece sure has been awefully quiet hasn't it?
Only in blue states and cities and ONLY because Democrats will not enforce law and order and WANT anarchy to gain political power.
The Democrat party is a threat to the Republic and must be put down.
Actually that mouthpiece has been applauding and supporting the protests.
The major cause of lawlessness is uninformed voters.
It was ALL PRE-PLANNED, COORDINATED AND DIRECTED....................
It must seem rapid to people who trust Liberals. However, none of this could have occurred at such a pace, without the prior knowledge and complicity of mayors, governors, community leaders, etc... (if only by their agreed inaction).
Told that nothing and no one would challenge them, the ‘protesters’ moved ahead without fear of arrest!
It makes sense NO OTHER WAY!
As I said previously, business owners need to bring a class action suit to those ‘leaders’ in those communities. THAT’S where the culpability is.
Yes, engineered from the first time they popped their heads up. Designed to manipulate carefully crafted notions that black people are inherently harmed / injured just because they are black. BLM serves their fetid Revolution, not the good of black persons.
Democrat Controlled Cities
So sad the prime victims of these lies are in the African American community itself. So BLM is, in reality, suicidal - and actually killing more blacks!
Kind of like Venezuela voting for Chavez and free everything......the Venezuelans voted for the very misery they are now suffering, and brought it on themselves.
So BLM is actually anti-black.
It’s “stunning” to any dummy who doesn’t understand what the 2016 WikiLeaks showed.
The Democrats may not be able to run a bake sale, but they’ll put a lot of effort into planning a robbery.
This was ready to go well in advance. Democrats were scouring the Internet looking for video to kick it off. So it wasn’t even racism, and the dork died of a drug OD. So what?
Same thing with the Virus. All planned and organized by Democrats. They asked Cuomo how many he could kill.
Liberals have worked to get themselves into government and institutional jobs. They control most local and State governments, all universities, and the bulk of federal government jobs including the military and some intelligence agencies.
It is not unexpected that once they decide to act in concert to refuse to prosecute liberals but attack conservatives that it will only seem swift.
It could not have happened at all had it not been with the implied assent of our elected officials. If America does not get it’s proverbial head out of the clouds, this country is finished.
The Democrats are planning to herd people Into socially engineered communities. There will be one doctor choice.and pro life wont be an option. The security will be provided by the state and all services will be managed by people like Bill DeBlassio. Only certain religions will be permitted. It will be very expensive too.Universities have been working on these planned communities for decades.Obamacare knew that doctors would retire and cause a shortage but the Democrats are not going to need many doctors because care will be minimal.Socialism part 1.
Because the democrats in charge of most cities were just waiting for any excuse to give certain people the right to destroy our American civilization. Too strong? I don’t think so. The mayor of Seattle rushed to give aid, comfort and material support to the occupiers. She deliberately and intentionally allowed them to continue to occupy, steal, destroy, extort and assult, with weapons that she would have taken away from a bunch of normal citizens.
The democrats were ready and willing to turn their cities over to neo-marxist revolutionaries, and didn’t hesitate one moment to do so.
“claiming without evidence that law enforcement is a threat to black lives.”
Actually, they’re claiming it, in spite of clear evidence to the contrary.
“The unwinding of law and order in our cities has happened with stunning speed.”
“The Collapse” is often unexpected, for some. For those who understand what they are witnessing, it is anticipated. The speed of the collapse is always fast, and power unrelenting.
The speed surprises most people, but the force of the collapses entirety is what pulls them in.
So it’s here. What will you do?
Protect your family, friends, businesses and neighborhoods.
