Movement Conservatism and White Racial Paranoia Killed Michael Brown

"They are Also Destroying American Democracy"

*Research in sociology, political science, and psychology has revealed that those with “conservative” political personality types see the world in binary and simplistic terms, are intolerant of ambiguity, more afraid of social change, highly deferent to authority, and have brains that are more highly attuned to feelings of fear and threat.

Conservative authoritarians are also much more likely to be racist, prejudiced, and xenophobic. "

Conservatives’ political personality traits, media, and a predisposition towards both implicit and explicit bias animus towards non-whites is crystallized in their response to the killing of Michael Brown and other unarmed black people such as Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, and Jordan Davis.

The American Right-wing’s defense of those who kill black people ranges from a barbaric and instinctive impulse towards homicidal ideation (as seen by those who defend Darren Wilson and have donated money to him as a form of bounty or prize for the new age lynching of Michael Brown) to a more mundane and quotidian belief that black people are a race of criminals, and it is best for “public safety” that the police and other representatives of the state treat African-Americans in a prejudicial and unfair way."

1. I also see the money raised as a sort of bounty.

 

And I notice that it is always conservatives who make excuses for anyone who kills a black person.

6. Imagine if people like torture camp creators were held accountable, the impact it would have.

 

It would send a chilling message to all the corrupt organizations that their crimes would not be tolerated.

Better just forget about it and "Look ahead".
