The St. Louis Riots and The Resolution: A Case Study in Hypocrisy

Earlier this month violence erupted at a days long protest in St. Louis. Missouri. The protests were in response to the acquittal of officer Jason Stockley, who fatally shot Anthony Lamar Smith (a black guy) back in 2011. Smith, a suspected drug dealer (pause for surprise), was shot after he fled from police after backing his vehicle towards them. Officer Stockley testified that Smith was holding a silver revolver. Obviously, Stockley had every right to fear for his safety and shoot him. Alas, that was of little consequence to the protesters who assembled in St. Louis over the weekend. This motley crew consisted of masked Antifa members (read communists), Blacks Lives Matter, and some other concerned citizens. In the third night of the violence, Sunday the 17th, at least 80 arrests had been made. The protesters broke windows and threw bricks and water bottles at police officers. The police reported that eight of their officers were injured as a result.

This incident comes on the heels of Congress approving a resolution condemning white supremacists, “neo-nazis”, and people associated with white nationalism in the wake of the August 12th Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. This resolution specifically highlights the ill-fated Heather Heyer who met her demise during the course of the rally, after allegedly being hit by James Fields. James Fields is a purported neo-nazi and Mopar enthusiast. From NBC news,

“The measure, which now goes to President Donald Trump for his signature, urges the Trump administration to speak out against hate groups that espouse racism, extremism, xenophobia, anti-Semitism and white supremacy. It also calls on the Justice Department and other federal agencies to “use all resources available” to improve data collection on hate crimes and “address the growing prevalence of those hate groups in the United States.” (3)

At what point will Congress be writing up a resolution disavowing Antifa and Black Lives Matter? There is certainly a much stronger case to be made for these groups as they actually perpetrated violence against the police over that weekend. Even the MSM has not been so brazen as to suggest that the white nationalists at the Unite the Right rally committed any violent attacks on the police. What’s more, Antifa and Black Lives Matter were also at the Charlottesville event and were throwing unknown caustic chemicals and rocks at the peaceful white nationalist protesters. Protesters who had a legal permit to be there. If this hypocrisy, that has been perpetually enforced by the MSM and the establishment does not awaken people to the vitriol these people have for white people, nothing will.

As the sagely Alex Jones would say, “The gloves are off.” Well, I for one echo this sentiment, and urge every white person of able body and sound mind to fight this hypocrisy.
