TV Guest Objects To Speech About Riots in Missouri

Denial is a strong censorship device. Is he saying that under Obama, Holder, Johnson, Tom Perez and Valerie Jarrett, black voices are censored? Is that because the above ruling quintumvirate fears black voices?

[From article]
MSNBC guest Dr. James Peterson claimed that the media shouldn’t be talking about the violent race riots going on in Missouri over the police shooting of an African-American teenager, calling it “a red herring.”
Peterson spoke with Dr. Michael Eric Dyson on MSNBC’s “The Ed Show” Tuesday. The duo discussed the shooting of Michael Brown and the days of riots that have followed — although Peterson wasn’t too keen on discussing the violence and looting at all.

“I think first and foremost, for us to be outraged at the response to the murder of Michael Brown doesn’t make a lot of sense to me,” Peterson claimed. “Because the outrage needs to be directed at the source.”
“They can handle the riot and stop the riot and control the riot,” he said dismissively. “But the real question is can we get our criminal justice system, can we get our police departments, to acknowledge the humanity of black and brown folks?”

“So I think our energy needs to be focused on that,” Peterson asserted. “It’s not that rioting is a good thing, but you know, as MLK said, rioting is sort of the language of the oppressed and those that are silenced. And those young people in that community have been oppressed and they’ve been silenced.”

Misguided Calls For Federal Investigation of Shooting in Missouri

Sharpton is an FBI informant. With Eric "White people are cowards" Holder running the Justice Department it is unlikely an objective investigation can be completed.

Sharpton called for the federal government to take over the investigation of the case, criticizing the local police department for not releasing the name of the officer involved in the shooting.
“We did not come to divide this city; we came to bring this city on one accord,” Sharpton said. “But one accord means that we have equal protection under the law.”
Sharpton criticized those who wanted to silence him and the rest of the community.
“There are those who are saying ‘peace,’ but they really just mean ‘quiet’… we want real peace; we don’t want to just be told to shut up and suffer in silence,” he said.

Two NY Amish Girls Missing, Found Safe

[From article]
A law enforcement source told the station the girls said they had been abducted by two men, who took them to an abandoned house. The girls said the men told them not to leave and then left.
But the girls instead fled to the home of a man who recognized them and took them home, according to WWNY.
Police say before the girls were kidnapped they went to wait on a customer at the family's roadside stand. A witness saw a passenger in a vehicle put something into the back seat, and when the vehicle drove off, the children were gone.

Wisconsin Sheriff Re-Elected Contrary To Bloomberg's Efforts

[From article]
Fresh off his victory in Wednesday's primary, pro-gun rights incumbent sheriff of Milwaukee County, David Clarke, Jr. appeared on Fox News' "Fox & Friends" to fire back at former New York City mayor and gun control advocate Michael Bloomberg.
Bloomberg's Independence USA super PAC spent $150,000 to air a series of television ads targeting Clarke's conservative pro-gun policies. But according to Clarke, Bloomberg's efforts to influence the election backfired.
"He came in and thought he could spread a few hundred thousand dollars around to take a prized catch away that he could march around the country with in his failed crusade -- his anti-gun crusade -- and he could hold me up as an example of what might happen to others if they don't get on board with him," Clarke said. "But that didn't work here. The public was actually turned off by it."

Black U.S. Rep. Seeks Martial law In Missouri

Spoken like true civil libertarian. Constitution be damned. 

[From Article]
“People have a right to protest,” Lewis said on MSNBC. “They have a right to dissent. They have a right to march in an orderly, peaceful, non-violent fashion. And the press has a right to cover it. Ferguson, Mo. is not the Congo. It is not China. It is not Russia. We can do better.”
“President Obama should use the authority of his office to declare martial law,” he continued. “Federalize the Missouri National Guard to protect people as they protest.”
