Big City Machines Losing Control of the Monster They Created

, , , ,


Pretty nearly every major American city lives under a thoroughly corrupt, appallingly mismanaged one-party regime, whose permanent grip on power is based on the block voting of a property-less, non-tax-paying, practically illiterate, welfare constituency, residing under what amounts to a permanent military occupation.

Herschel Smith looks at the Chicago demonstrations demanding that Rahm Emmanuel resign over the police shooting of Laquan McDonald, and notes that the Chicago police were trained in “stability operations,” i.e. controlling an occupied population by the Israelis. American urban police, he notes, treat certain people, in certain neighborhoods, like an occupying army enforcing martial law.

While we aren’t dealing with millennia-old problems [as in the Israeli-Palestinian case], we are in fact dealing with at least fourth or fifth generation entitlement, with fatherless families, SNAP payments, welfare, “free” medical care, and so on. Just enough government largesse to keep the inner city blacks on a leash, not enough (yet) to create revolution against it. And therefore the elites get their voting bloc, which is the intended outcome all along.

But the monster this created is ugly and difficult to control. I’ve read comments about the rioters in Ferguson, to the extent that any protest against “the man” (or the state) is a good thing and they must be our ally (I’m not sure who “our” is). Such a view is a sign of lack of attention to detail, immaturity and weakness of mind. Most of the rioters in Ferguson would sooner gut you groin to throat with a knife and then rape your wife and daughter as to look at you. Anyone who feels an alliance with the rioters in Ferguson is a fool.

This is a monster the government and effete urbanite elitists created. The hive is coming apart at the seems, and the only way to keep it together is harsher and harsher stability operations. Make no mistake about it. The Chicago Mayor knows all about the tactics in use in Chicago and approves of them. The firing of the chief of police was a sacrifice to the masses.

The lesson for us is that police departments are more and more using stability operations as a model or paradigm for their work, with the approval of those in charge. As these tactics want to work their way into the fabric of American society like a cancer, one goal will be to kill the cancer before it takes over the host. This battle will be gradual, fought initially on the fields of town hall meetings, boards, blogs, and so on. If the battles are lost there, it will expand, and if lost entirely, dystopia (and maybe insurgency) will come to the American countryside.

The wars for the inner city cannot be won. America is going broke and the largesse cannot continue forever. Sooner or later, the riots will expand. The more important thing will be what happens to the medium and smaller towns of America?

The contagion is being injected into the nation already with about 47% of the people either working for or dependent on government; Latin migrant amnesty; Muslim refugees and, the key, gun confiscation.


The US is simply replicating what Europe has been doing for some time. Government policies stifle economic growth by reducing the number of people who are working productively. Economic stagnation makes it harder and harder to keep the masses placated. It is a vicious cycle that will not be reversed without the sort of Reagan/Thatcher led consensus that this cannot go on.

Liberals always fail to understand that while being handed money may satisfy material needs, it does not satisfy the human desire to EARN one’s living. The masses will never be “stable” if they are simply corralled and fed.

“Sooner or later, the riots will expand. The more important thing will be what happens to the medium and smaller towns of America?”

Just something to consider: folks in the medium and smaller towns of America are much better armed than in the Democratic fiefdoms…and likely more inclined to use their arms in the event of rioting.


We have allowed the rise of a generation of uneducated, unskilled, unemployable men, mostly black, whose only means of survival are government handouts and crime, especially in the form of drug dealing. Drugs and the money it generates is the major cause of gun violence in America, not guns which have become a convenient straw dog for an incompetent and largely failed presidently.

It will be interesting to see how many of the big-blue-city, middle- and upper-middle class refugees either
1. Bring their preening, virtue-signaling social justice agendas to medium- and small-towns, versus,
2. Say, we’ve been there, done that, and it all ends up going down the toilet.
Based on Colorado’s experience, there will be more folks of the #1 persuasion.

Black novelist James Baldwin famously said that “Urban renewal means Negro removal.”

He had no idea how right he was.
