Apparently nothing says “justice for Michael Brown” quite like attacking a young white person who simply wants to be left alone to go home. A video posted Saturday to YouTube shows a group of mostly black protesters attacking a young white person who says he just wants to go home.
The video, which can be seen above, begins with one protester enlisting others, telling them a “white boy cocoa face” is in the area. “Come on,” the female protester says, encouraging others to join in the attack.
“We gon’ beat yo stinkin’ head,” one protester is heard shouting in a bullhorn. It’s unclear from the video exactly who the protester is addressing or why.
“I wanna go home,” said a young white man surrounded by angry protesters. “Why are you grabbing me?” the young man asked as he was assaulted by the allegedly “peaceful” protesters.
The reason is simple. Police have been basically told that any effort to enforce the law is essentially racist. Protesters, enabled by so-called “civil rights” leaders like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, and groups like the New Black Panthers and communist organizations like the Young Communist League feel they have carte blanche to do whatever they want with zero consequences.
“When is the government going to untie the hands of the police and allow them to stop this?” Jim Hoft asked at the Gateway Pundit. Given that Gov. Jay Nixon — a Democrat — has demanded a “vigorous prosecution” of Darren Wilson, the officer who shot Brown, odds are the government will allow this criminal behavior to continue unchecked for some time. Sure, some protesters, like Democratic state Sen. Jamilah Nasheed, have been arrested for failure to obey police orders.
But Nasheed, a rabidly anti-gun Democrat who has sponsored several bills curtailing the right to keep and bear arms, was holding a 9mm handgun when she was arrested. Worse yet, she refused a breathalyzer test after officers determined she reeked of intoxicants. Most people would have faced additional charges under those circumstances, but it seems Nasheed did not.
Ferguson protesters have also threatened violence if Wilson isn’t indicted for murder. According to the Federalist Papers, protesters have told police they are prepared to die on the streets if Wilson isn’t charged.
“If they can’t serve justice in this, the people have every right to go out and express their rage in a manner that is equal to what we have suffered,” said Ashley Yates, a co-founder of Millennial Activists United. “We’re going to take our anger out on the people who have failed us, and if they are prepared to deal with that, then let them have at it.”
