Constitutional Right To Riot?

Many leaders and citizens in the black community of Ferguson, MO, have called for an end to the riots, looting, property damage, and physical injury that erupted in the wake of the death of a black man shot by the police.

Not included among their number are professional rabble rousers like Al Sharpton or liberal-progressive media such as MSNBC, which have played up the Ferguson story night after night, attacking police “brutality” and supporting black rioters who shot at people, threw stones and bottles at police, while smashing and looting stores in the area.  Support for such overwrought “demonstrations” is a standard liberal-progressive vote-getting tactic intended to identify law-and-order with totalitarian thuggery.

Evidently, under the liberal-progressive, evolving Constitution paradigm, black mobs have special Constitutional rights that immunize them from prosecution.

Our Racist President

Obama ignores reality and blames whites for the indisputable fact that blacks, who constitute only 23% of the population, commit about 7 out of 10 of all violent crimes.
