Ferguson #ViolenceWillNotBeTolerated Goes Viral On Twitter KKK & Gov. on Same Page???

KKK and Governor of Missouri on the same page??? As both warn about violence by Black protesters in Ferguson. During the summer we saw the over-reaction by police in Ferguson against protesters who were treated as violent criminals even while protesting peacefully . Peaceful protests in the USA are treated quite often as a threat to the state and asa physical threat to police officers. But most of the violence which has occurred has been perpetrated by the militarized police force which sees the community and citizens as the enemy.

 Historically we should remember that during the Civil Rights movement there was a similar view about black protesters that they had no right to massive protests and that the police had the right to use excessive force including the use of dogs, whips, batons and water hoses on peaceful demonstrators. Is this what we can expect in the future .

But note that had the Cliven Bundy Ranch stand off in the Spring the mainly white protesters came armed with high powered rifles and hand guns and it was the police who backed off not the protesters who were in fact threatening to shoot and kill police . How different would the result had been if those armed protesters had been black.

KKK says Ferguson protests ‘have awakened a sleeping giant’

Chris Hayes talks to Frank Ancona from Traditionalist American Knights of the KKK, St. Louis American Columnist Lizz Brown, and St. Louise Police Chief Sam Dotson about the planning surrounding the Ferguson grand jury verdict.

Is this the type of violence the governor and the KKK are so concerned about that is the violent reaction of police and the National Guard. They are more concerned over the damage to property such as a broken window than with the killing of more black American citizens. This is always the default setting for the white law and order crowd.

When thousands of students rampage through the streets of a white college town during a Pumpkin festival the media ignores the situation because the participants are white upper class kids.
