That, once again, will go absolutely unnoticed by the mainstream press:
As my readers may know, I have devoted a large part of my blog to following the malicious antics of the right in this country. In the course of this probably useless exercise, I have detailed over the years the various secessionist, seditious lunacies that are a perpetual stock of the right wing trade, threatening some sort of fantasy revolution against the Federal government. Well, as I have continuously reported, these promised revolutions have have all ended in ludicrous failure. The best they could do was turn out twelve hundred or so overarmed loons to defend one of their own's God-given right to not pay his bills. Much has been made of the fact that the Feds backed down in this case, but no one seems to want to mention that the right wingers backed down too- they had the government authorities outmanned and outgunned, and had them in the sights of their snipers, hidden behind concrete barriers. Still, after whooping about what big, tough men they were, they ran from a real confrontation too.
Well, now we come to the town of Ferguson, population 21,000. Let the police murder one of them in cold blood, and then show up stocked with the weapons of war to direct toward American civilians, and the people turned out and faced down these belligerent, violence hungry maniacs. In one town. Now, multiply this by all of the towns and cities across this country, and you will begin to realized something: simmering just beneath the surface in this country is the human means to carry out a mass revolt- not from the right, but from the left. The country is filled with people who have had just about all the abuse they can take, but they are not teabaggers or militia members, they are the masses of black people, latinos, and whites too that see their lives being crushed by the rich and their tools in the Republican party. What has happened in Ferguson is just about ready to be set off all around this country, and if those stupid Bundy ranch guys, and Republican idiots like Rick Perry and Ted Cruz think they are leading the charge, they are going to be very surprised when they find themselves under its boot.
