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.
