I stated from the beginning that, in the context of the Black Political Discourse - the "Amistad Occupation (We Want Free....)" was going to be "The Great Unmasking", exposing many of those who are "down with Blackness" for what they really are.
- Some would use it to advance the leftist economic /anti-capitalist ideology that was the underlying force behind their political dogma
- Some would attempt to rechristen their marches from "Back In The Day" - as they realize that they have a task more difficult than Rumplelstiltskin - trying to operate in the present using a consciousness forged from the past - but unable to accept that the "Mission Accomplished" city administration that they struggled to place into office to deliver "Equal Justice Under The Law" - are now the same officials who must enforce the laws that they are breaking with their Occupation.
- Try as they might to affirm the imagery - these present day police officers are not lead by "Bull Connor" as their police chief and whatever the Occupiers have suffered thus far here in America amounts to mere "ego bruises" as compared to the death that their revolutionary comrades in Syria, Egypt, Yemen, Tunisia and other places have suffered. Not to mention Libya in which NATO forces executed an international coup upon a sovereign nation yet the American Occupiers have accepted this as a "humanitarian mission".
Before I address the video - it is important to assign some structure to the "Black Community Development Struggle" so that we can detail where we are at present.
They used their intention to growth their political power base with the insertion of "Progressive Public Policy" as the man draw upon the "Black Community Development Consciousness" all in the name of CONGREGATIONAL UNITY among Black people.
As they grew their political power beyond the Black community they needed to form Progressive Joint-Venture relationships in which they were forced to identify the "progressive common denominator" beliefs that spanned these organizations. Venerable organizations like the NAACP were forced to become even more leftist - dropping many of the plank items that were forged when the majority of their chapters were created in various church basements - housed by walls that symbolically represented the foundations of that very church. Today's NAACP is dramatically different than its past incarnation. They necessarily had to "let go" of that which made them a "uniquely Black progressive" organization and now they seek to extend this new progressive baseline that they operate from INTO the Black community - hoping that the community will be reformed and enlightened as such.
As we seek to understand the forces that "Occupy The Black Community Consciousness Positions" we have to understand the TIMELINE upon which they operate upon.
The Black Quasi-Socialist Progressive-Fundamentalist Racism Chasers = "The Lumpen Pros"
The truth is that the ruling left in America was not prepared to accept the full domain of responsibilities that their dominate control over the layers of government that impact "The Least Of These" that they proclaim to represent.
After decades of struggle by which their attrition campaign against their enemies lead them into more rungs of POWER in various elements of the government - when they won a balance of power by which any reasonable person could claim that they now have sufficient control to be held accountable for the RESULTS........they waged what we are now seeing: a campaign of "Establishment Power Repudiation".
"Establishment Power Repudiation" is their attempt to reject all notions that the scheme which they enacted to get the "Vulnerable Masses" to fuse their diverse and cross-connected "DEVELOPMENT HOPES" into one Progressive vehicle has been successful AND should now be counted upon to now DELIVER the very benefits that the masses hath struggled for - after years of propaganda and promises to that effect.
Having failed to develop and govern the institutions that would promote the people into the high average standard of living that was promised AND sensing that their base might turn on them for their failings - a new strategy was needed to capture the energy of the aggrieved - for the benefit of the Progressive Movement.
The one hard lesson that I have learned is - YOU CAN'T FORCE A PEOPLE TO ENFORCE THEIR OWN DIGNITY AND INTEGRITY.
The cost of them failing to do so - even against those who stand inside their circle - is the constant shortfall in their expectations and the continued "chum feeding" by those who lead them, knowing that they hate their ideological enemies more than they'd love to actually MANAGE their human resources into the promised prosperity.
