Why was Michael Brown shot to death by a Ferguson, Missouri, police officer? Don’t bother trying to tell me, because one thing I’m sure of is you don’t have a clue. None of the pundits spouting off about it have a clue. Nobody in the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, who wasn’t there to witness events first-hand has a clue. If you have learned the “facts” third-hand, all you have to go on are shards of distorted information. This is another one of those moments (see also the Tawana Brawley case, the William Kennedy Smith rape case, the Duke Lacrosse rape case, the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case) all the agenda mongers lie in wait for, so they can pounce and start screaming that this case perfectly illustrates everything they’ve been claiming all along. Agenda pushers don’t care what the facts are. They only care about superimposing their script. They already knew what the facts were before Michael Brown was even shot, because they wrote the script long before. Now is the time for street theater of the hype-meisters, bonfire of the insanities, and it all perfectly illustrates one thing only: They don’t need no stinking facts for this morality play!
