Occupied South City

Breitbart on the BLM radical splinter group called Fuck12.

Before I discuss the local angle, I want to note this part:

Though definitions tend to vary between common reference sources online, #Fuck12 draws its origins from Atlanta and Oakland social media users typically decrying the fact that narcotics officers (Code 12) are bearing down on their presumed illegal activities.

Keep this in mind, because I’ll be looping back around to it in a moment.

Now for the local angle:

A St. Louis-area “radical bookstore” has utilized the #Fuck12 tag to hawk its rather unsurprising wares as well.

And below that is this tweet.

A black rose is an anarchist movement symbol.

Black Rose Books’s Twitter page proclaims that they have one location at FOAM on the corner of Cherokee and Jefferson, and another coming soon at MoKaBe’s on Arsenal near Grand.

Cherokee Street between Jefferson and Gravois is really starting to become notorious for two things: One, Hispanic immigrants, even though for now, that’s their only real patch in the city; they’re not a factor in citywide or regional affairs as a whole, though that’s where St. Louis’s Cinco de Mayo is celebrated every year, mainly another drinking opportunity for normal people around here not of the ethnicity being celebrated (see also:  Mardi Gras, St. Patrick’s Day).  Two, white or (((white))) young far left anarchist type extremist activism and politics. Some community arts hovel called CAMP (?) is on Cherokee about a block away from the old Hermann Eisele joint, (and consider the irony of that for one moment).  Bernie Sanders’s St. Louis HQ was also somewhere that part of Cherokee.  This is not on Cherokee Street itself, but a couple of blocks north on Jefferson, and having the name Cherokee in it, but the Cherokee Rec Center is where Knockout Martin Luther King was born.  Even though the black undertow is being pushed away from Cherokee Street specifically, they still predominate in some of the surrounding neighborhoods, and often cause trouble for Hispanics, hipsters and anarchists, and especially other black people, around there and in the general area.

MoKaBe?  Well, you may remember they were in the news not so long ago about their dislike for cops.  Sure, they addressed the situation, by doubling down.

So, in those areas, you have an uneasy and volatile combination of people that for some reason really dislike cops.

Why?

Blacks, well, we know why, because their experience with cops almost always involves them coming around to put Uncle Leroy in handcuffs.  As for the anarchists, I figured them out ten years ago.

Remember that blockquote at the beginning of this post?  That brings us full circle.  At the root of all of this is dope.  Blacks and white or (((white))) anarchists are mad at cops for interfering with the dope trade.  Sure, that’s not their only beef, but the dope thing is the straw that is stirring this drink.  The net consequence of the desire of their anti-cop political activity, whether they want to admit it or not, is consequence-free cultivation, manufacturing, transporting, distributing, dealing and using of what are at the moment considered to be illicit drugs.

What they don’t realize, especially the ones who make money from the dope trade, is the reason why it’s lucrative is because it’s illegal.  You know, that whole risk-reward continuum.  Take the cops away, and you take the risk away, and when you take the risk away, you take the profitability away.  If illicit drugs were legal, they’d be just another low margin commodity from which everyone on the production-distribution-retail-consumption (not much) value added chain is ekeing out an existence.

Of course, I’m trying to reason indirectly with people whose brains are on drugs.

Yeah, I don’t the employee was acting in contradictory fashion to his bosses.  This joint is on Arsenal close to Grand, and if you remember, that’s the part of South City where the secondary protesting happened the night after the grand jury no true bill was announced last November, in that whole corridor along Grand from 44 south to a few blocks south of Arsenal.  Also remember that night there was a pre-planned pre-approved “shutdown” of the eastbound lanes of 44 near the Grand overpass.  And it’s in the area where St. Sandwich of Ham, Vonderrit “Droop” Myers Jr., deprived us of his company one year ago today.

It’s also close to what was the heart of Knockout Martin Luther King country a few years ago, only several blocks north of where Matt Quain was whacked.

The rabble versus Andy Taylor.

They must not realize that Taylor is just about the worst anti-white race panderer in St. Louis’s constellation of very high level business and corporate executives.





He Didn’t Clarify, He Doubled Down On Stupid

He didn’t apologize, he didn’t backtrack, and the only thing he clarified is that he was doubling down on this “punching up” versus “punching down” hobby horse of his, and that he’s a left wing crackpot.





They’ve Got to Be Kidding

WTF?

Meet the new group that wants to disarm and displace the NYPD

A newly-formed group of activists are teaming up with Copwatch, an anti-police brutality group that records video of police conduct in their communities, to create “no-cop zones,” and maybe even disarm the police, through the use of direct action.

“Disarm NYPD” is a new collective seeking to immediately stop the New York Police Department from killing anyone ever again. The group seeks to monitor and pressure police, with the help of local communities and Copwatch groups, until they retreat from over-policed neighborhoods and then maintain these cop-free zones with alternative, community-based forms of conflict resolution. Along with that, the group also seeks the total disarmament of the police.

“We feel that the police have proven that they’re not responsible enough to carry arms due to the fact that they’ve been killing people so consistently for so many decades,” said a member of Disarm NYPD, who chose to remain anonymous. “We feel that they should be disarmed immediately.”

Along with stripping police of their weapons, Disarm NYPD wants to push the police out of neighborhoods entirely. Then, within these spaces, the group wants to help residents form conflict-resolution bodies to make police obsolete and to build councils and networks to enable local communities to organize their own lives.

Let’s join together to use reason and the power of inference.

Cops go where the crime is.  They don’t go where crime isn’t.  Therefore, if you don’t want cops hanging around, don’t be doing the kind of crime which draws their attention.  Since this is the kind of area where the cops hang around a lot, too much for the liking of these activists, it must be a high crime area.  The kind of people who make this a high crime area aren’t going to be deterred by conflict resolution and restorative justice.

But that’s not the point.  Cui bono when the cops are gone?  One, dope dealers and dope gangs, two, dope users, (which explains the interest that non-black leftists have in “Copwatch” and “Disarm NYPD,” as well as other political movements), and three, considering the No-Go Zones in Europe, AQ-ISIS.  Should this milieu get its way, bet on Mohammed al-Terroristiqua planting himself in the no-cop zones.

In reality, the only people these people are kidding are themselves.  In the real world New York, the people that run things and the people that really matter are fishing for the next candy-coated pretext that they’ll use to shovel all these “real” Bronx residents out of the Bronx.  Once those areas become gentrified, then they won’t be “over-policed” anymore.





Sounds Like a Snoozer

Ferguson

Let’s see.  They’ll be doing stuff on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Weather man says that it’s probably going to be raining on Friday, and chances of rain on Saturday and Sunday, upper 50s low 60s all three days.  I hope that it’s even rainier and chillier than that.

Because if it is, they’ll have to stay inside the mosque.

Also, these events are a part of this larger putsch.

Her ten reasons.

It’s a fairly long read, so give yourself some time.  I could knit pick with this or that part, but the the good and juicy parts of this far outweigh my crankiness.
