What Time Magazine et al. Side With When They Side With Ferguson Rioters

If the disgraceful Time Magazine hadn’t already jumped the shark years ago, it sure has now, by publishing an open endorsement of the rioting and looting the liberal establishment essentially staged in Ferguson. Try to imagine a responsible adult putting their name on the recently published tripe by Darlena Cunha that asks, “Is rioting so wrong?”

Her answer:

Riots are a necessary part of the evolution of society.

In response to people who don’t share her admiration for mobs that engage in theft and malicious destruction, and who accuse the mobs of blaming others for their failures and inadequacy, she channels socialists like Elizabeth Warren and Barack “You Didn’t Build That” Obama:

…when you have succeeded, it ceases to be a possibility, in our capitalist society, that anyone else helped you. And if no one helped you succeed, then no one is holding anyone else back from succeeding. Except they did help you, and they are holding people back. So that blaming someone else for your failures in the United States may very well be an astute observation of reality, particularly as it comes to white privilege […quack quack quack…] I am racist because I am white. Until I have had to walk in a person of color’s skin, I will never understand, I will always take things for granted, and I will be inherently privileged. But by ignoring the very real issues this country still faces in terms of race to promote an as-of-yet imaginary colorblind society, we contribute to the problem at hand, which is centuries of abuses lobbied against other humans on no basis but that of their skin color.

Astonishingly, the thugs responding to encouragement by the liberal media and the Obama Regime by looting and burning down businesses on the pretext that a white police officer opted not to let a marauding black maniac murder him are portrayed as somehow the victims.

If you have ever been to a Tea Party event, you were probably struck by the conspicuous civility of everyone involved. Not so much as a gum wrapper is left on the ground, in jarring contrast to liberal gatherings like Occupy Wall Street and the savagery in Ferguson. Yet Time attacks the Tea Party — and the historic event that inspired it:

[T]he Tea Party gets its name from a riot, The Boston Tea Party. For those who need a quick history brush-up, in 1773 American protesters dumped an entire shipment of tea into the Boston Harbor to protest The Tea Act, which colonists maintained violated their rights. In response to this costly protest and civil unrest, the British government enforced The Coercive Acts, ending local government in Massachusetts, which in turn led to the American Revolution and created our great country.

Comparing hood rats looting the local liquor store to the American Revolution is a classic example of liberals’ favorite fallacy: moral equivalence. Here it serves a dual purpose, both elevating the animals running amok in Ferguson and tearing down the country liberals so hate even while hypocritically acknowledging its greatness.

The only difference between thugs and patriots, per Ms. Cunha:

What separates a heralded victory in history from an attempt at societal change, a cry for help from the country’s trampled, today? The fact that we won.

What does she mean we? Americans won, not moonbats.

The notion that the pampered, privileged, welfare-fattened parasites stealing anything they can lay their hands on and setting fire to everything else are “trampled” is what you might call the Big Lie — a falsehood that is accepted by some precisely because it is so outrageous. Obviously, the only people getting trampled are the business owners, who receive little sympathy from the liberal media.

As for why blacks appear to be prone to the ultimate antisocial behavior, rioting,

Blacks in this country are more apt to riot because they are one of the populations here who still need to.

Bizarrely, the devastating and unjustified 1992 riots in Los Angeles are cited as a positive example of social betterment through looting, assault, and wanton destruction.

According to Time, the ultimate purpose of rioting is to end “racism.” If racism means the tendency to view blacks as the sort of people low enough to participate in riots, this approach would seem to be counterproductive. But apparently when a white liberal elitist like Darlena Cunha blathers about ending racism, what she means is achieving a utopia in which all blacks have every need met without having to exert any effort or take any responsibility, are above the law, and cannot be criticized.

We’re almost there now. One more riot ought to do it.

Here is an example of what the pointy-headed vermin constituting the liberal intelligentsia think is justified by a white police officer defending himself against a black criminal:

While covering the protests, a St. Louis news crew came upon a chaotic scene in a parking lot.

An elderly man dependent on oxygen was reportedly attacked and run over during a car jacking in the parking lot of Faraci Pizza on Florissant in Ferguson.

In the video, you can hear witnesses tell the news reporter an elderly male was attacked, car jacked, and then run over with his own car.

One witness said the unidentified victim went to his car to get his new oxygen tank when the thugs attacked him with it.

Sure, the rioters are just like George Washington.

We are well past the point where liberalism could be regarded as just a differing point of view that you happen to disagree with. As the Ferguson spectacle has made clear, it is a vile, depraved, malevolent ideology that is destroying America before our eyes. Anyone who subscribes to it is a traitor not only against American civilization, but against civilization in general.

Liberals’ answer to the Founding Fathers.
