WE ARE THE NOISELESS

Most of what I see at rallies where people protest prejudicial social conditions of every type, including those of other species, is a lot of screaming, mostly screaming in fact. Such loud, vicious, teeth-bearing, gut-ripping vitriol that it becomes worthy of the name assault.

But it isn’t working. Assault never does do anything but get somebody’s attention short-term. A loud noise, everybody looks where it’s coming from. The message to the brain is assault assault alert alert get out get out – unless it settles down, then it’s okay to stay.

Noise gains or loses its power commensurate with the decibel level. The decibel level at modern-day rallies is way too high. High decibel levels are incitement tools used by rally planners to get attention and keep the attention.

Soft-spoken rarely works except also to agitate. Don Lemon of CNN notoriety uses that soft-spoken approach, but it isn’t effective. It isn’t real. You can see him seething beneath the surface of his mask and he likes that you can see that, but it doesn’t work except to make him look insincere.

Agitate and they’ll probably all go home.

Incite and they stay only because once incited it takes a longer time to come down from the incitement.

Incite at several locations with varying start-times and you’ve got a rally that will last all night resulting in destruction.

But still there’s no message, except violence. The rally then becomes reduced to its signage, but even those blurbs/bumper stickers get watered down due to the close proximity to the noise assaults popping all over the streets.

Try total silence. Synchronized courtesy. No utterance from the mouth, no singing, no humming, no nothing that can be in any way construed as noise.

No eyeball rolling. No makeup, no drinking beverages, no back packs. No mask unless it’s the animal mask with no hole for your mouth.

No chains, flame throwers, bats, signs. No words. No skateboards, roller skates, hockey sticks. Only the presence of a multitude of people who come in peace. No baby strollers. Who would take a baby to a rally?

I’ve never seen a peaceful rally. The government regards any rally that doesn’t result in a murder as peaceful. Even if a few blocks are burned to the ground and cars torched, it is still considered mostly peaceful.

A few bad apples they say. But a few bad apples is what it takes to make a mob of bad apples, so stop using that phraseology. You’re looking stupid. People have eyes and ears. You claiming something didn’t happen when they saw that it did, makes you look incompetent.

That is a low bar the USA sets for peace. Don’t think other nations haven’t taken note of where that bar is located.

No arm waving, no flailing, no hair flipping, no improvisational movements, no dancing.

WE ARE THE NOISELESS. No horns. No road-blocking.

One person carries one sign. Make it a powerful message – one that everyone can agree with, not in a perfect world, but in this world, now.

The multitude follows the sign-holder. Show the world what follow looks like. Instead you show the world what chaos looks like. Not good. Not effective.

Can you do that?

Then your message falls on deaf ears. You lack discipline.

Discipline is the key to all success.

The Key to discipline is spiritual growth.

The Key to spiritual growth is self-knowledge.

The Key to self-knowledge is love.

If you can’t do that, then you don’t know yourself.

What’s discipline?

The motive to move.

It starts with a thought.

Move that thought – to a good place for all.

Okay, I can compromise.

Whisper. Not like you’re in a saw mill. Like you’re in a library.

I wonder what that sounds like – thousands of people whispering.

The Blacks can’t do it. Their eyes will be popping all over the place from the strain.

Train yourself. Use a mirror.

“You can do it. I know you can.” SL (my original quote, not Obama’s)

You won’t be able to stop talking with your hands. I have that problem too. The minute I start hand-talking people start looking at them like I’m going to punch them. They don’t hear a word I say.

I’ve got a better idea, walk like a penguin. Don’t put your arms in the sleeves of your shirt. Button your shirt. Or wear a sweat shirt; it’s easier. And keep your hands out of your pants. Who raised you to do that?

I see a field of whispering penguins out there. Wonder what they’re up to?

They’re not happy about something.

What?

Probably same as always, they want more money. They want you to forgive them their debts.

“Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.”

Can we do that?

Make some phone calls.

Return of the Violent Black Nationalist

Farrakhan said, “Retaliation is a prescription from God to calm the breasts of those whose children have been slain.” Farrakhan said, “Retaliation is a prescription from God to calm the breasts of those whose children have been slain.”


During a single month last year, America witnessed two of the most horrific shooting attacks against law enforcement in recent memory. 

On July 7, 2016, Micah Xavier Johnson ambushed Dallas police officers during a peaceful protest against police brutality, killing five officers and wounding nine others. Ten days later, Gavin Eugene Long shot six officers, killing three, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Both Johnson and Long were reportedly motivated by their strong dislike of law enforcement, grievances against perceived white dominance, and the recent fatal police shootings of unarmed black men under questionable circumstances, specifically the shooting deaths of Alton Sterling of Baton Rouge and Philando Castile in Falcon Heights, Minnesota. Although many Americans were understandably upset and angry over the deaths of Sterling and Castile, killing others as retribution is certainly not justified. Authorities would later learn that Johnson and Long had ties to black hate groups.

That same month, six Christian churches in St. Louis, Missouri, were either burned or vandalized. Graffiti left at the crime scenes made reference to “Negroes Are the Israelites,” “Wake Up!,” “The Real Israelites Are Rising.” These statements are indicative of Black Hebrew Israelite ideology, which portrays Christianity as “evil” and may point to motivation for the property destruction. As details developed about the Dallas, Baton Rouge and St. Louis attacks, it was apparent that a domestic terrorist threat had re-emerged — a threat not seen since the 1970s. This cluster of attacks would later signify the return of the violent Black Nationalist.

On the rise

According to counter-terrorism experts and scholars, Black Nationalism rose in reaction to white racism during America’s civil rights era. It encompasses hatred toward whites, homosexuals, and Jews. Black Nationalists have also advocated for a separate territory for African Americans within the country (similar to white nationalists who argue for a white homeland in the Pacific Northwest). According to their propaganda, Black Nationalists would like a portion of the Southeast United States reserved for a black nation. Further, they are known for their antigovernment and anti-police sentiments due to their long-held views on government corruption and police brutality.

Like most extremist movements in the United States, Black Nationalism’s worldview is shaped by conspiracy theories. In their case, these conspiracies relate to perceived white oppression. They believe that whites — oftentimes conspiring with Jews — control the financial system, government and the media. They believe they are mistreated as a result of their race and ethnicity. For these reasons, they refer to incarcerated Black Nationalist inmates as “political prisoners.” Similar to other hate groups, some Black Nationalist groups conduct prison outreach programs to recruit other inmates into their extremist cause. Some have also been known to recruit street gang members…

Although not necessarily violent as organizations, groups such as the Nation of Islam, New Black Panthers, New Black Liberation Militia, the New Black Panther Nation and the Five Percenters are incubators of radical fanaticism. They attract violent individuals whom they indoctrinate, like Johnson, Long, Brinsley and Muhammad, encouraging criminal activity and violence…
