Accuracy in Media

If Ferguson 2014 is remembered on an objective basis by our media, we will be reminded of an unprovoked attack on a white policeman by a black thug named Michael Brown, who was high on drugs; Michael Brown’s stepfather Louis Head (a convicted marijuana distributor) yelling, “Burn the bitch down;” the burning and looting of local businesses, including black-owned businesses; and the indictment of two blacks for plotting to kill St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch and Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson.

Another important factor in all of this has been the constant presence of outside agitators, including members of the white communist-led Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP) and the Workers World Party.

Like Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, RCP chairman Bob Avakian is a white communist who came out of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), the group that laid siege to college campuses before turning into the terrorist Weather Underground.

Referred to by his followers as “Chairman Bob,” Avakian is devoted to “the struggle for a communist world” and wrote a memoir, From Ike to Mao and Beyond: My Journey from Mainstream America to Revolutionary Communist.

One of his big fans is Princeton University’s Cornel West, a favorite of the media who declared, “Bob Avakian is a long distance runner in the freedom struggle against imperialism, racism and capitalism. His voice and witness are indispensable in our efforts to enhance the wretched of the earth.”

West is honorary chair of Democratic Socialists of America (DSA).

Rather than expose the outside agitators in Ferguson, The Washington Post ran an article by a black professor named Carol Anderson as the burned out businesses were still smoldering, insisting that, “Ferguson isn’t about black rage against cops—it’s white rage against progress.”

In a rambling and largely incoherent column, she insisted that “the tea party movement’s assault on so-called Big Government” was actually “an attack on African American jobs.”

If the public gets misled by such reckless and inflammatory coverage, we will be denied an opportunity to understand how our own internal security is at risk through outside manipulation of black criminal elements in our cities and communities.

It is apparent that President Obama and his major liberal and “progressive” allies want to use the damage and destruction in Ferguson for “criminal justice reform” that targets the police as the villains, and seeks to release hardened criminals from jail on the ground that they are “victims” of capitalist society.

The late Larry Grathwohl, former FBI informant in the Weather Underground, understood from personal experience how white communists exploited blacks and other minority groups. Once discussing the significance of a 2009 book by Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn entitled, Race Course Against White Supremacy, Grathwohl said Ayers and Dohrn always regarded Barack Obama, whose political career they sponsored, as a tool—a puppet—to use against white America.

But there’s one slight problem: these communists, including Ayers and Dohrn, were white themselves.

During one of several “criticism sessions” when he was in the Weather Underground, Grathwohl said he asked “why we didn’t recruit or make any efforts to recruit African-Americans or Latinos. Weatherman doctrine held that minorities inside the United States were actually a colonized people and therefore could fight a war of liberation while we, as white Americans, were part of U.S. imperialism or at least profited from U.S. imperialism.”

He never got a direct answer, although the Weather Underground did work later with the Black Liberation Army, a group of black communists who murdered police.

Grathwohl understood the role that blacks were to play in the revolution when he was assigned to Detroit, Michigan, in order to bomb a police station. Shortly after his arrival there in late January of 1970, he was assigned to a cell with four other people, and during a meeting with Bill Ayers they were told “that our objective would be to place bombs at the Detroit Police Officers Association (DPOA Building) and at the 13th precinct.”

The DPOA building, Grathwohl discovered, was a converted single-family brownstone that had been built prior to World War II. Next to the DPOA building was a Red Barn restaurant, located in a predominantly black neighborhood, meaning that that most of the customers were black.

“After a week of information gathering we had another meeting with Bill Ayers and at this time I suggested to Bill that if we placed the bomb in the walkway between these two buildings, the DPOA building would suffer little if any damage while the Red Barn restaurant would most likely be destroyed. I also concluded that customers in that restaurant would die.”

He said Ayers told him, “Sometimes innocent people have to die in a revolution.” Grathwohl said, “I was shocked. I couldn’t believe that a person who had so eloquently spoken of the black liberation movement could be so callous when it was obvious that the resulting explosion would kill many of the people he claimed to be so concerned about.”

This is essentially what has happened in Ferguson, as white-led communist groups had to be fully aware that blacks would suffer the most, when using Michael Brown’s death as the main organizing tool.

Obama has played the part well, just as Ayers and Dohrn anticipated. In his remarks after the announcement of the grand jury decision in Ferguson, Obama vaguely referred to “the handful of people who may use the grand jury’s decision as an excuse for violence,” but never named who they were and why they were in Ferguson. Instead, he focused on alleged problems with law enforcement.

Obama certainly knows a lot about white communists exploiting blacks. But he won’t address the problem publicly or call for the federal government—or Congress—to investigate it. That might expose the network that backed him for president.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, which once had a friendly working relationship with the Obama/Holder Justice Department, has also played its typical role, publishing a “Hate Watch” report quoting some fringe “white nationalist web forums” as making disparaging remarks about minority groups. The group said nothing about communist manipulation of the Ferguson protests, and urged people to read the article by Professor Anderson about “white rage” being the problem.

Not to be outdone, CNN invited the professor on the channel to claim that “white rage” can be found in common-sense policies or proposals such as “law and order,” and even “fiscal responsibility.” She explained, for example, that fiscal responsibility “sounds genteel” and “sounds responsible… But underneath it, the destruction to the black community is profound.”

The communist role in the protests has been acknowledged by the media in passing but never explored in any detail. The Washington Post on Saturday ran a story under the headline, “Ferguson retailers bruised by protests,” about the “Black Friday” agitators who tried to impede business at various department stores. The on-line version carried the headline, “After protests, a quiet Black Friday in Ferguson.”

It reported, “A handful of protesters, including members of the Revolutionary Communist Party, were told to leave the parking lot. They stood at the lot’s entrance with signs that said ‘No Shopping As Usual Black Lives Matter Friday.’”

A photo with the article (not with the on-line version) showed somebody screaming in a store and disrupting shopping with a sign that said, “Ferguson is Everywhere. Police brutality and murder must stop.” The bottom of the sign revealed the sponsor of the protests: “revcom.us.”

The website www.revcom.us represents the Revolutionary Communist Party.

But one can search in vain in the pages of the Post and other major newspapers for any discussion of who these communists were and what precise role they were playing in the violence and mayhem.

This is a perfect opportunity for the new Congress to investigate communist subversion and agitation. But that would require creation of new committees or subcommittees to examine the idea that the U.S. has an internal security problem that needs to be exposed and addressed.

As long as Obama and the media pretend the problem doesn’t exist, it’s unlikely Congress will act.

Instead, we are likely to see more cases of libertarians like Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) having meetings with the likes of racial agitator Al Sharpton, who has his own show on the MSNBC cable network.

In a statement, Sharpton, who once falsely accused a group of white men of raping a black woman named Tawana Brawley, said that he and Senator Paul talked about “criminal justice issues” and “mandatory sentencing” as part of “a very candid and courteous conversation.” He added, “We pledged to continue to have such conversations where conservatives and progressives can have dialogue and break the log jam in American discussion.”

What he’s talking about is letting black criminals out of prison or jail because they are supposedly victims of a racist system.

Former congressman Artur Davis, a Democrat-turned-Republican, told Jennifer Rubin of the Post that Sen. Paul shouldn’t be meeting with “leaders” of cable shows, but rather with black families “doing the best they can against tough odds,” and those who have buried children “who were killed not by cops but by other kids.”

    It’s more than just jobs now, we now have a new “residence” for the likes of sharpton and cornhole west. The state of North Dakota has named a new publicly-owned landfill after President Barack Obama.
    >>
    >> In an overwhelming 35-10 vote, the state Senate advanced a bill naming a 650-acre site currently under construction after the nation’s 44th president. Governor Jack Dalrymple is expected to sign the measure into law Tuesday.
    >>
    >> When completed, the Barack Obama Memorial Landfill will be the largest waste disposal site in North Dakota, and the 17th largest in the United States. It will be especially rich in toxic waste from the local petroleum and medical industries.
    >>
    >> “We wanted to do something to honor the president,” says Republican State Senator Doug Perlman, who was the lead sponsor of the bill. “And I think a pile of garbage is a fitting tribute to Obama’s presidency.
    >>
    >> “We originally planned on naming it after a nearby mountain. But then someone jokingly suggested we name it after Obama. I never thought an idea like that would actually pass. But I was pleasantly surprised.”
    >>
    >> The president is hardly popular in North Dakota. The most recent poll in December 2013 found that Obama has a 35% approval rating in the state, although that figure may have fallen further in the year since. Yet even considering the political climate, seasoned observers are surprised that two Democratic lawmakers voted for the bill’s passage.
    >>
    >> “I supported Obama because I thought he would end the wars in the Middle East;” says Allison Mitchell, a progressive Democrat from Grand Forks. “But he decided to fight new wars abroad instead of fighting for single-payer health care and jobs here at home.
    >>
    >> “I guess people expected me to oppose this landfill thing because I’m a Democrat. But honestly I don’t really care anymore. Maybe this small act of protest will wake him up.”
    >>
    >> Ordinary citizens in the state also seem to approve of the government’s choice.
    >>
    >> “I can’t think of a better name,” says Joe Blough, a plumber from Minot. “It’s darkly colored and it’s full of shit. That pretty much sums up Obama.”

    It is so healthy to America that the hardcore-Left is exposed so explicitly, as so indefatigably Kincaid does it

    But the problem is that all those vociferous organizations such as the RCP, the WWP, DSA, and even the Communist Party USA, and Socialist Party USA, are in reality minuscule entities whose main function is that of decoy minnows and lightning rods to distract non-leftists’ attention from where the most powerful sector of the traitorous domestic hardcore-Left is embodied: the IDEOLOGICAL marrow and rudder of the Democrat Party. A socialist or a communist, doesn’t need to register with any of the decoys to do his/her activist work; registering Democrat is more than enough, as one gets a good cover under the Democrat brand.

    Notice that, although there exists a small overlapping between the Democrat ideological marrow and the Democrat highest organizational-strata, they are in essence two distinct entities glued together by operational symbiosis.

    There are scores of mere opportunists at the highest organizational-strata of the Democrat Party, profiting financially for their very personal benefit. They are therein for money.

    However the ideological marrow of the Democrat Party runs vertically from bottom to top, as the spinal cord and vertebral column and rudder of the Party. They are therein for ideology (mostly Marxist and Marxist-Leninist).

    The two sectors live in a symbiotic entente; the highest organizational-strata uses the ideological marrow to retain their high positions in the Party’s overall organizational-strata; in return, the Party’s ideological marrow gets free hands to operate unmolested. It is like “let me make money, and I’ll let you make chaos”. Or put the other way, “let me make chaos, and I’ll let you make money”

    The two sectors are, thus, happy, each doing its thing. And, in the process, they –the one sector by action, and the other, by mercenary dereliction of duty– advance the destruction of America.

    It is therefore that the Democrat Party must be exposed from that perspective.

    For example most Americans don’t know that the Democrat Party is a member, by proxy, of the Socialist International, which is dedicated to spread socialism across the planet…ostensibly, “democratic”-socialism (i.e., non-Marxist full-fledged socialism), but in reality the spread is Marxist-socialism, i.e., full-fledged socialism, but only as a convenient steppingstone toward Marx’s “ultimate aim”: Marxist communism, i.e, stateless worldwide communism.

    Now, the by-proxy membership is two pronged; the one prong is the National Democratic Institute, whose chairman is Democrat operative Madeleine Albright (google it); the other prong is DSA which overlaps mutually and entirely Congressional Progressive Caucus.(google it) which is entirely constituted by Democrats and Democrat-functionally “independents”.

    This should be exposed vigorously, with at least the same emphasis as placed on the decoy minnows..

  • Capnmikey

    Marxism is alive and well in the United States…promoted by Obama and Holder..and the Nation of Islam in Chicago that spawned these criminals..where Reverand Wright, Fr. Pfleger, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, et el preach hatred for “whitey”, revolution theology, and Bill Ayers teaches gullible students all about communism and violent insurrection..after all, it worked so well in Detroit!

  • John Cunningham

    Oh yes! Plus the Black Panther Party and, wouldn’t doubt radical Islam as well. I was watching Fox News this morning and a Liberal Pundit said that Police officers shouldn’t use force with black Men. In other words he should have handed over his gun to make it easier to be shot. {Expletetive] and a bad one too!

    How I learned about it

    Years ago, while in high school in the middle and late 1960’s, America was passing through one of the most tumultuous times since the Civil War. Riots had “spontaneously” broken out in the summer of 1963 in Harlem and later parts of Chicago, Atlanta and much of the South. It got so bad that some of these regions would later be declared under martial law due to the escalating violence. It was all so frightening as the mood of our nation grew darker with each passing summer.

    By August of 1965, one of the largest ghetto riots ever exploded in East Los Angeles. An area known as Watts, during that smoldering hot season, was nearly burned to the ground. Later the assessors discovered that over 5 square miles was under the disorder of lawlessness and pillage. It got so bad during the insurrection that they had to bring in the National Guard. Whole city blocks were on fire and by the time it ended, thousands were injured and scores had died. (http://www.usc.edu/libraries/archives/cityinstress/mccone/contents.html)

    How did it all happen?

    The Mainstream Media told us that this was a spontaneous uprising due to PID: Poverty, Ignorance and Disease. In the case of California, we were told, this uprising occurred because of the horrible, adverse conditions of the lower Eastside of Los Angeles. The pundits concluded that the neighborhood just got fed up with it all and started a “spontaneous insurrection to protest” their terrible conditions fostered on them by the evil and greedy “land lords” who were exploiting the poor masses that paid the rent. We were told it was only a matter of time before this would happen. An incident of some kind would only light the fire. And indeed, that’s what occurred. (A Report by the Governor’s Commission on the Los Angeles Riots. December 2, 1965 Anarchy, Los Angeles. [64 p. pictorial work inserted after p. 16A of the Report])

    Seems that a California Highway Patrolman shot and killed a young African American driver, who was drunk, in the local Watt’s area and that, we were told, is what triggered the “incident“. I remember thinking how surreal it all seemed. A major insurrection because of a local police incident? Once again, the Media hyped “reported” what wasn’t real. In fact, once the California Congressional Investigations were done, the conclusions were what NBC, ABC and CBS news told us was the cause: Poverty, ignorance and disease.

    But others who were not beholden to the Establishment Media discovered something quite different than what the “experts” were reporting. Independent investigators concluded that whole thing was planned.(For a comprehensive review of the 1965 LA insurrection see Gary Allen, “Communist Revolution in the Streets”, (MA.: Western Island, 1967.) 35 died and over 1000 people were injured). From the start to the finish, it was instigated by foreign agents and the cronies they trained and controlled to “create” the conditions that lead to a full-scale riot.(ibid, see also Skousen, below) The killing of the young man by California State Troopers was only the “spark” the professional agitators were waiting for. ( See also W. Cleon Skousen, “The Communist Attack on United States Police”, (SLC: Ensign, 1966).

    As I look back, I realized that learning about this was a real wakeup call for a young teenager like myself. After all, I was buying what was being sold to me as “news” as most of us did during those times (thank you Walter Cronkite). I put credence in what the “experts” of the mass media were dribbling out as “fact“. But, as you will see, my education on things as they really were (and are) began on a more personal basis.

    In fact, I learned about how these “riots” were created and later instigated in a rather unusual way. Here’s one experience that illustrates my point. While in high school in the late 1960‘s, there were several student “protests” at Southern California Universities. Many of these incidences turned nasty as the students went on violent rampages. In USCB in Santa Barbara, they torched the local branch of Bank of America in the small college town of Isle Vista in April of 1970.

    Just a few weeks later, I talked to several who were there and they told me that money had come into the radical college students hands from “professional agitators” who were paying the “students” to do what they did: burn down banks and cause havoc. Later I found out that the riots at Colombia earlier in Chicago in 1967 and into the next four years were also instigated by the same kind of agitators I had heard about on the West Coast. ( James Kunen, The Strawberry Statement: Notes of a College Revolutionary, (NY: Wiley/Blackwell, 1995, reprint from the 1968 book).

    Is there a connection between the so-called “student uprisings” and the “spontaneous” rebellion in the ghettos of America? Yes, according to Eugene H. Methvin, in his book entitled “The Riot Makers: The Technology of Social Demolition” (New Rochelle; Arlington House, 1968, 1970).

    Years later, I talked to Phillip Abbot Luce, an ex-Maoist trained in Cuba in the early 1950’s who help foment the infamous riots of Harlem in 1964-65. He told the whole story in his book “Road to Revolution” which outlined how white communist-trained agitators were sent over to the East Coast with the specific purpose of seeing if it was possible to start a full-blown, violent revolution in a nation like the US (verses Third World countries).

    They proved that they could.

    So why is any of what is happening in Ferguson a surprise? It shouldn’t be, after all, it was planned that way.

    Why would a communist expose a communist?

  • John Cunningham

    Knowing full well, the Obama Scandals will be investigated to the fullest in the next couple of years, I fear Obama and Holder will continue to exploit the Ferguson incident. Since they obviously hate white America and want desperately to change the subject about criminal activity by these two great American Citizens [sarcasm] I believe it has only just started.

  • JJAN

    An .org claiming to be fairness, balance, and accuracy but upon reading the first sentence in this article the terminology “black” and “thug” is an all too common and excused form of racial context used mainly by white men and white femal counterparts.

    Case dismissed. This website is anything but balance but is bias.

  • Burn_the_Witch

    So the black people that coined the “black” lives matter term are racists? “Thug” has always had broad applications regarding race, but you don’t really seem knowledgeable enough to know that.
