The Zimmerman RiotsSubmitted by dwalters on Tue, 07/16/2013 - 11:19
All seems to be rather quiet on the home front despite the media hyping up the likelihood of widespread rioting that would follow the not guilty verdict of the George Zimmerman trial. It can even be argued that the media is trying to incite such rioting. It has been reported by Judicial Watch that the Department of Justice, which is headed by Eric Holder, has actually used taxpayer money to help coordinate protests against Zimmerman. However, this shouldn’t be viewed by the African American community as support for them or for the memory of Trayvon Martin. The government is for itself and its cronies, only.
Attempts by governments to use poor or subjugated people for their own ends is nothing new. George III – the king which Americans defeated in the War for Independence – tried to maintain British control of the original colonies by trying to incite slave rebellions as one measure. However, like the current US government, George III did not care about those folks. This can be made clear by considering a paragraph that was written in the rough draft of the Declaration of Independence:
[King George III] has waged cruel war against human nature itself, violating its most sacred rights of life & liberty in the persons of a distant people who never offended him, captivating & carrying them to slavery in another hemisphere, or to incur miserable death in their transportations thither. This piratical warfare, the opprobrium of infidel powers, is the warfare of the Christian king of Great Britain. Determined to keep open a market where MEN should be bought & sold, he has prostituted his negative for suppressing every legislative attempt to prohibit or to restrain this execrable commerce and that this assemblage of horrors might want no fact of distinguished die, he is now exciting those very people to rise in arms against us, and to purchase that liberty of which he has deprived them, by murdering the people upon whom he also obtruded them; thus paying off former crimes which he urges them to commit against the lives of another.
