The obscuring Ferguson follies

Riots, looting (most pathetically, of a Dollar Store), bricks and bottles, fires, gunshots, the usual to-do fed by the Al Sharptons and other shouters who make their living off these events.

Meanwhile, in Cleveland… I suppose that will be the next righteous shoot, the black 12-year-old with a toy gun. Ferguson’s Brown, indeed, seems to have been a thug, like Trayvon. But the dead 12-year-old? And unarmed Miriam Carey?

Wormtongue’s “we do have work to do here, we shouldn’t paper it over” makes a point that the Ferguson nihilists are obscuring. Not to mention the snooze media and its usual sloppy, emotion-first reporting.

UPDATE: Jonah Goldberg at NRO: “I’ve had enough of cable TV enjoying itself while acting like it hates covering riots.”

MORE: Gun. Foot. Most of the businesses destroyed…were owned by minorities. The Democrats would rather have them on welfare, anyhow.

  1. All kinds of good stuff in those dollar stores, though. They are like a general store. Carry everything. Some of it ain’t no good, but some things are excellent bargains.

  2. It’s a store for the poor. It ain’t Macey’s. It’s also a chain that can recover from the loss of one store. Most of those burned-out Ferguson businesses were one-offs and insurance doesn’t pay for losses from rioting.
