Blacks in Ferguson Threaten Businesses Who Don't Rebuild



First they burned it down, now they want it rebuilt. And if no one rebuilds, they will riot again and burn down even more of the city of Ferguson.

Does that make sense to anyone other than the rioters in Ferguson?

A report out, Ferguson Rioters: They Better Rebuild the Businesses We Looted Or There’s "Gonna Be Hell to Pay," by Top Right News on December 18, 2014, talked about how some of the black community in Ferguson are now upset that businesses might not rebuild there.

The report talks about how the Ferguson rioters who looted and burned dozens of businesses to the ground during the Mike Brown riots in August and November are now demanding that those businesses rebuild those stores .. or else.

Yes, there is in implied threat if the businesses do not rebuild.

The report noted a CBS interview with three blacks men in Ferguson. 

One protester “Gunny” warned city officials, “To be honest, if they don’t come and restore these neighborhoods for these people, like when you gotta go travel miles to Walmart and to get gas and stuff like that, it should be right here.If they don’t restore this community for people who stay here it’s gonna be hell to pay…”

A second stated, “Yeah, that’s why people lootin’, because they can’t get no jobs.”

According to local St. Louis station KMOV, two major retailers -- KMART and Big Lots have now announced they will close the doors on their Ferguson locations.

The retailers claim that the decision has nothing to do with the recent unrest, but small business owners in the area see things differently. 

The owner of a nail salon in the same strip as the Big Lots store says that business is down 50% since the unrest began, and plans to leave once their lease is up.

But where is the surprise in this?

After the August riots, I recommended that ALL businesses close their doors permanently. When the riots and looting and the arson of the local businesses started, I recommended that ALL businesses move out of Ferguson as fast as they could. 

I recommended that they take their inventory and depart the area before becoming victims of the chaos encouraged by President Obama and the Attorney General of the United States Eric Holder.  

I wanted to see ALL businesses move out and leave it to the animals running wild there. I wanted to see ALL grocery stores, clothing stores, auto parts and hardware stores, restaurants, gas stations, auto repair, and fast food outlet, and any other businesses there, shut their doors and leave the area to the jungle that the people there have made it into.

I was hoping that once the rioters see that the businesses that they burned down employed blue-collar workers, and that their actions were in fact harming other regular middle to low income working people most, that they would see the insanity of their actions.

I was hoping that once the rioters who ruled the city with Jungle Law, actually saw that they had nowhere to buy food, or gas, or conveniences, that they would stop the carnage.

I was wrong. Even though the animals in Ferguson Missouri burned down their town, they didn't care about the outcome. That is, until now -- well, sort of.

Now the very people who are responsible for sacking Ferguson want those businesses back so they can burn them down again. Yes, they want them back -- but are threatening the city with more violence if they don't rebuild. Imagine that for twisted logic.

Frankly, if I were the insurance carriers for those businesses, I would make it too costly to rebuild in such a War Zone. I would make coverage of businesses so costly that businesses cannot afford to return there. 

And frankly, I would not blame insurance carriers if that's in fact already taking place.

Why should any insurance company cover a business in an area that you know is under the threat of being looted and burned to the ground on a whim by those animals living there?

Will there be repercussions to businesses not rebuilding there? Sure, but than again, there's not that much more to burn down and loot is there? The Ferguson animals have destroyed a great deal of their city.

And yes, I'm sure that businesses owners who were brutalized, intimidated, threatened, and saw their life's work go up in flames, those who fear the animals of Ferguson who won't return, will certainly be labeled as racists. 

The owners the 56 businesses sacked by looters and arsonists should take the insurance money and move to a business friendly community somewhere away from the jungle. Instead of rebuilding in Ferguson where the threat of a replay of the violence and arson is ever present, they should move to somewhere safe where the people want the jobs.

While the black population in Ferguson has an unemployment rate of 46%, and one would think they would be trying to entice businesses there for the jobs they provide, why threaten to burn down businesses who do return?

Yes, business owners should take their insurance money and leave as fast as possible. 

They should leave the city of Ferguson to the animals there, and let it remain the jungle that it has shown itself to be. 

And yes, that's just how I see it.
