As usual they featured the audio interview of convicted cop killer Mumia Abu "Killa Mu" Jamal giving his weekly dispatch from "Death Row". He has been moved to the general prison population.
To me the content of the audio highlights the fraud that exists in Left-wing, Government Supremacist propaganda and "Black Progressive Fundamentalist" rhetoric specifically.
Play close attention to my picture to the left.
It details a movement that has come full circle but it continues on because the rituals that it has amassed is the essence of its present existence.
For the progressive movement the primary goal of its longitudinal struggle has been to focus the efforts of aggrieved people upon capturing political power as a means of instituting policy reforms that will force their key oppressors to yield. For the case of the urban activist there is no greater threat than the municipal police forces as they serve as agents of the state that enforce order on the streets of their community. Whereas the larger society has abandoned these zones the police forces serve as their proxy. They are the occupying force that have earned the disrespect and scorn of the people who they see as "collective criminals".
The picture shows the great conflict that exists among the modern Progressive Fundamentalist. In the mission accomplished zones where they have assembled "favorable people into power" in the municipal administrations the conflict with the police has not abated. As quiet as it is kept in the recent conflict in New York City over "Stop And Frisk" - the city that has 46 of its 51 city council members as Democrats the associated rhetoric about "racial profiling" and the indictments has been channeled toward the police department specifically Unlike Arizona - there are no broad indictments of the political overlay who's commitment to racial bigotry is expressed in policy.
The truth is we are more likely to see one of the members of the NYC city council arrested during an "Occupation" sit in against the NYC Police Department at its headquarters than we are to see the council itself to take the lead in reigning in the police (per the perspective of the activists).
The overall point that I make in regards to the larger conundrum faced by the urban progressive fundamentalist is that they don't allow the irony and contradictions that confront them per their rise to power to force their hand into accepting accountability for the "baby that they birthed" - which is in power - just as they struggled for.
When faced with this situation, they show that their ideology is more important than results by projecting the phenomenon of "Establishment Power Repudiation".
In as much as they have no interest in "taking out" the establishment machine that they were directly responsible for putting into office, they change the boundaries of the debate, making the case that the problem is NATIONAL in scope and that they must make more gains for "Nationalized Social Justice" policies and the local contradictions will be fixed due to national coordination from high.
If you listen to "Killa Mu's" rhetoric and how he links "police oppression" with the larger issue of "Western Imperialism" (the military, foreign policy and global capitalistic tentacles of America and the West) you start to see the hand of the Progressive Fundamentalist Struggle that is apparent in the movement that he serves as an important voice for. (The WRFG "What Good Is A Song" crew are plugged into the "Prisoners Rights Movement).
While the people on "The Friday Night Drum" show represent the deadlocked, tunic wearing front of the movement, we should note that the forces that are represented in the NAACP, ACLU, "Black Wing Grievance Talk Radio" represent the more working class face of the very same body of thought.
If you ever wonder why the Civil Rights Pharisees value "Killer Cops" and "State Sponsored Executions" even as they drive past a mass grave of "Black carcasses" on their way to the "Hoodie Rally" the answer is clear.
In a subsequent audio portion of the "What Good Is A Song" show (my streaming Internet radio recording program locked up and my recording failed) created the expanded categories of "The Enemy":
|The Agents Of White Supremacy And Oppression According To The Black Progressive Fundamentalist||Artifacts - From The Perspective Of The Government Supremacist|
|The Police Man|
|The Security Guard|
|The Vigilante / Self Appointed Neighborhood Watch Agent||
The "Angry White Male" effect. The White man, tired of unchecked crime by "people of color", takes the law in his own hands. Since the official agents of the state think the same way but are bound by their "Rules Of Engagement" to avoid the unilateral use of state violence, the cases in which the White male private citizen carries out "justice" upon the "law breakers of color", they receive protection and tacit blessing from the state rather than treatment as criminals.
Upon hearing the report (from the local "What Good Is A Song" show host) that thus far in the year 2012 approximately 110 people have been murdered by the police (and/or the 3 iterations of "State Power" listed above) I am not content on going through each of these cases to discover if this was a "justified shooting" or a case of - "extra judicial killing", as the host labeled them.
Instead I am inclined to place this 110 strong body count (which is on a trend of 220 deaths at the hands of the police at year end) in the context with the estimated 9,000 Black people which are victims of homicides each year.
When I hear Progressive Fundamentalists "talking past" the large mass graves full of Black carcasses on their way to an official indictment down at the government building my observation of the "Black Hole Effect" is ratified.
They show themselves as being UNINTERESTED in addressing all of the key variables in the "Mission Accomplished Zones" that they now dominate. They prefer to be "Ideological purists", with THE EXTERNAL INDICTMENT AGAINST THE SYSTEM remaining as their existential disposition.
When "Favorable People Assume The Seats Of Power" The Progressive Fundamentalist Erects A Protection Racket Of Silence, Using The GPS Coordinates Of Their Smartphone App To Avoid Occupations Outside Of The Offices That Are In Safe Hands
In listening to Mumia Abu Jamal's arguments about the link between police power and international imperialism the gaping hole (to all who are ANALYZING rather than "eating what they are fed) is that Jamal refuses to tie in the actions of FAVORABLE PEOPLE (who the Progressives helped to place into power) with existing imperialism and oppression.If you inspect carefully the arguments of Mumia Abu Jamal (and "The Final Call" for that matter) when they discuss "President Obama" in the context of the aggressions of American foreign policy they ALWAYS buttress Obama's actions with the actions of "The Bush Administration" and the right-wing in general.
The reason for this tactic is that they understand that they are speaking to their left-wing base which has emotional attachment to the "favorable people in power". They are reluctant to make a direct indictment of their friend, accusing them of acting as "Imperialist Oppressors" in a standalone basis. By placing their actions in the context of the right-wing company that they keep, the reader is made to feel a bit of comfort as their friend tried hard to fight the system but the system (and its handlers) got a few strikes in despite the noted objections. References to them being "the face of the system" are made. By contrast the right-wing past occupant of the same seat was marinated in blood and hatred as his motivation.
Despite the many voices who venerate Dr King for choosing his convictions of his international view on the best interests of man-kind over his more marginal concerns for civil rights in the context of America - when it comes to President Obama and their desire for DOMESTIC "Social Justice" they are willing to suppress intellectual honesty and consistency by refusing to engage in activism against American Imperialism under Obama.
SOLUTION: The Black Progressive Free Radicals MUST Be Given DEFINITIVE OBJECTIVES, Relevant To The Condition Of The Black Community - As A Precondition Of Their Assigned Credibility
The primary failure of the Black Progressive Fundamentalist and "Free Radicals" is their relative incompetence to OPERATIONALIZE what they long for into an EFFECTIVE, workable plan for the Black community. The mere fact of having mentally satisfied those who are listening in is sufficient to allow them to continue on, unchallenged. When the shortfall expresses itself - this after SUCCESS at what the ill-conceived plan has set out for the community to execute upon - the CONSPIRACY THEORY and EXTERNAL INDICTMENTS are used to assure the people that external forces are the reason for the short fall. Their plan which was so enticing to them stands unchallenged.
I use this example to shift back to the problem at hand: The active by-pass of the body count produced in "Street Pirate Sponsored Executions" as the Free Radicals focus their collective attention on THE POLICE and IMPERIALISM.
We have already seen that in both cases - when there is a "favorable person in power" (as police chief or as Commander In Chief) the level of aggression in their activism is necessarily abated because they would prefer to not knock this favorable person out of power, allowing a (real) "right-winger" to take his place.
This body of thought is too intellectually dishonest to ask itself: IF THE SAME RESULTS ARE OCCURRING AT THEIR EXPENSE, REGARDLESS OF THE IDEOLOGY OF THE OCCUPANT OF THE SEAT OF POWER, YET THEY ARE MADE TO COMPROMISE THEIR OWN INSTITUTIONAL INTEGRITY ENFORCEMENT IN DEFERENCE TO THEIR FRIENDS...........MIGHT IT BE THAT THEY HAVE A BODY OF THOUGHTS THAT ARE UNREALISTIC WHEN APPLIED IN THE REAL WORLD?
My analysis is that "Progressivism is an INORGANIC" body of thought. It can't stand alone and is intrinsically a "Protest Meme".
When it slips up and WINS it must shift the scope of their indictments in order to retain their "Struggle Motion".
The body of people that go along with it - WITHOUT CONSCIOUS AWARENESS of their own selves will suffer as the motion sickness from their long, winding journey fails to produce the ORGANIC COMPETENCIES that SELF GOVERNMENT necessitates.
