A collector of random facts and a writer of too-long stories. Not sure where I'm going with this yet.
So, you’re referring to this post which is titled “Ferguson from my TL - August 18 (2/3)” which was somebody’s social media timeline and featured 29 different social media posts about Ferguson. In the middle of those 29 posts was 1 Facebook post where a guy claimed he was assaulted by an anarchist and claimed the KKK was present at the protests.
The entire post wasn’t intending to be a report of verified facts, but rather a report of what the people who are in Ferguson are seeing and saying. At the end of the post were links to how you can help the people of Ferguson. I thought this was worth sharing.
But you’re right, I did blindly reblog the post without fact-checking. So here’s some fact-checking on the issue of “White Anarchists” inciting riots at the Ferguson Protests.
Here’s another CNN interview with Marc Lamont Hill giving an eye-witness report of members of white anarchists and a Republican Communist group from IL throwing bottles at the police and being pushed out of the crowd by the peaceful protesters.
That white guy is Gregory Lee Johnson, a member of the Revolutionary Communist Party.
So yeah, I seriously believe that there is a presence of white anarchists and Revolutionary Communist Party members at the Ferguson riots who are trying to use these protests as an opportunity to further their own agenda.
