Baton Rouge Might Be The Next Ferguson
By Hunter Wallace
Remember what I said about Tupelo being the next Ferguson?
“A police-involved shooting in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, has begun to make headlines across the world, and because the case is in its very beginning stages, it is a perfect case study in how social media platforms like Twitter have become an Institutional Left manipulation of how a story works. Already, protests have begun in Baton Rouge, and the story is making headlines in NBC News, New York magazine, The Huffington Post, and international outlets like the BBC and Al Jazeera.
As this article went to press, many facts in the shooting case of Alton Sterling by Baton Rouge police early Tuesday morning are still not known, but that has not stopped the activist left and the Black Lives Matter movement from immediately jumping on the story as what they claim is another example of the oppression of minorities in America and the murder of “innocent black men.”
It will probably be Baton Rouge now. Lord knows, we have seen cities set on fire by rampaging black mobs on the basis of far less conclusive evidence.
