WASHINGTON, November 27, 2014 — The official buildup by Missouri and Ferguson officials made it clear the St. Louis County grand jury decision would not satisfy the mob. At least it’s clear the editors at the New York Times thought so.
Monday morning’s edition of the Gray Lady hit the porches of subscribers more than twelve hours ahead of St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch’s announcement that the grand jury would not hand down a criminal indictment for Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown.
The Times reported that officer Wilson married while on administrative leave and included the full names of the bride and witnesses, and the street address where the newlyweds live, which included a photo of their home.
The Times also informed all interested, torch-wielding, automatic-weapons-toting, Molotov-cocktail-throwing, store-looting miscreants that the Wilson home was a convenient “half-hour drive from Ferguson.”
The following day, a Times’ note informed its readers “an earlier version of this post… contained information that should not have been made public.”
It stretches credulity to entertain, for even an instant, the notion that the release of Wilson’s home address by the Times was unintentional. After all, the grand jury report, containing thousands of pages of forensic evidence and the testimony of 60 witnesses, blew a gaping hole in the narrative sold by the leader of the mainstream media and the likes of Rev. Al Sharpton: That the late Michael Brown was a “gentle giant.”
Last August, the Ferguson Police Department, wisely, got out in front of the race-baiting propaganda machine by releasing security camera footage showing the “gentle giant” and an associate stealing cigars from a convenience store, and the towering Brown intimidating and roughing up the store owner.
“Release of the [security camera] video… angered some, who say police were using it to distract from Brown’s killing and make him look bad,” CNN reported. “As protesters took to the streets early Saturday, more than two dozen people blocked off the convenience store with cars. Police with riot gear, tactical rifles and armored vehicles were nearby, commanding them through loudspeakers to free it up. Instead, bottles flew, mayhem erupted, and looters ransacked the store, which the owner had boarded up. It was the first of at least three stores raided.”
The mob was so angry the video would shatter the media’s carefully crafted Brown-as-victim myth, it paid tribute to the late “gentle giant” by intimidating and looting the same convenience store owner victimized by Brown.
Attorney General Eric Holder once infamously said, “Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards… It’s a question of being honest with ourselves and racial issues that divide us.”
Last Monday evening, the mob lashed out violently in a desperate attempt to put the public’s attention back on the carefully crafted media narrative and away from the uncomfortable truth provided by a thoughtful and thorough grand jury report.
Four days before the release of that report, the FBI arrested two New Black Panther Party goons for allegedly attaining explosives to build pipe bombs they planned to set off during protests in Ferguson.
And so, a declining New York Times joined with the New Black Panther Party, the race hucksters and the Ferguson mobs by publishing the home address of Officer Darren Wilson in a cynical attempt to head-off an “honest” conversation about the “racial issues that divide us.”
