It’s become quite clear over the last few days that Ferguson thugs–those lovely individuals who have been tearing their own city to shreds because they disagree with the grand jury’s decision on Officer Darren Wilson–simply want to ruin everything for everyone.
This is a massive temper tantrum of near biblical proportions, and unfortunately for those involved, their violent activities are not going to produce the changes these folks believe is needed in our culture.
A few of the rioting and looting Michael Brown supporters in New York City planned to ruin the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, but ended up failing miserably.
I’m pretty sure these folks are hating life right about now.
From Weasel Zippers:
Anarchists plotted on Wednesday to disrupt the Thanksgiving Day Parade — feeling emboldened after cops allowed them to run free on major roadways like the FDR Drive and the West Side Highway, The Post has learned.
“The police aren’t going to arrest us and they are not going to shoot us,” an organizer who calls himself “Magiq” boasted to a group of two dozen rabble-rousers at a Union Square planning session Wednesday night.
“They’re walking right by us now with their heads down and their tails between their legs,” Magiq, 27, of Brooklyn taunted as scores of cops watched the group from across 14th Street.
“Yes, they’re planning on crashing the parade,” a law-enforcement source said. “With this hands-off approach, it gives them free rein to do anything they want. It’s a free pass to act like a fool.”
The Thanksgiving Day Parade was barely under way when about half a dozen protesters were handcuffed Thursday morning after they ignored police officers and tried to march toward the parade route on Sixth Avenue.
This may have been the greatest fake out of all time. Police totally lured these morons into a trap by instilling them with a false sense of security, waiting for the right moment to drop the hammer. Brilliant.
These “turkeys” certainly deserve to spend their Thanksgiving languishing in a nice, cold, uncomfortable cell. In fact, this probably couldn’t have happened to a better group of people.
Despite the message Obama is sending to folks across the country, this is still a nation of laws. Everyone, including has the right to assemble and protest peacefully. However, no one has the right to ruin a whole city’s holiday tradition just because they’re throwing a tantrum.
Hopefully this action by the NYPD will send a clear message to these “protesters” that the kind of violent behavior going down in Ferguson will not be tolerated.
