On the Fact that those Rioters, Hooligans, And Looters in Ferguson Apparently Burnt Down a Predominantly Black Church Last Night
The biggest mistake last night was not arresting the first couple of trouble-makers and giving these protesters the much-needed message that lawlessness of this sort would not be tolerated. I mean, could you even begin to imagine the first Mayor Daley putting up with this bullshit? Or Mayor Koch?......As for the burning of churches, how ironic is that?
It was yet another egregious blunder that contributed to WW2. And, yes, I cite specifically here the way that the West cobbled together Czechoslovakia with Southern Slovaks, Hungarians, etc. and had these folks rule over the traditionally Germanic lands of Bohemia, Moravia, and the Sudetenland (all told, some 3.5 million Germans). Of course, when I articulate, "rule over", I'm talking about Czech soldiers murdering German protesters, firing German workers from jobs in the government and from German-owned enterprises, closing down German schools, etc.. We in the West like to talk about "self-determination" but when Wilson created this highly centralized and make-shift government, he was a) doing the absolute opposite and b) providing Hitler with a convenient and even plausible reason for invading it. Thank you, Wilson!
