“MOB MENTALITY”

by OPOVV, ©2014

“Barabbas” in Aramaic means “son of the father.” Barabbas’s life was spared when Jesus was crucified.

(Dec. 2, 2014) — The crowd was given a choice: free the one (Barabbas) who had a rap sheet a mile long or free the other (Jesus), who was railroaded by the powers that be. Today’s powers are the manipulators, the puppet masters; mainstream media who voice lies and innuendos, unsubstantiated truths put forth for the single-minded purpose to rile the ignorant and easily-swayed; the “low-information” pawns who inhabit the world stage in every city and hamlet and who are manipulated for whatever results desired: mob rule equals burning buildings, and a fire at night is a lot more photographic than during the day.

Welcome to Ferguson, MO, where emotions trump common sense. Or, conversely, welcome to Jerusalem, circa 32 AD, and what do we see? We see the same mindless crowd that know not what they do or, more importantly, why they do what they do.

What in tarnation do destroyed merchandise and missed opportunities to conduct a business transaction have to do with the concept of justice, the Golden Rule, or with anything other than pure and simple destruction out of spite? Words such as “maturity,” “facts,” and “introspection” are not to be heard from a mob. Instead, we hear “Get even,” “Burn this b***h down!” and “We’ll show them.”

Mob psychology is a Dark Art. What we perceive to understand of mobs has no bearing in reality, for mob mentality is as unpredictable as the weather, although, as a rule of thumb, to expect mobs to do “Good Deeds” is, really now, a little too far-fetched, although it may not be out of the realm of possibilities. There are, however, exceptions where some member of the mob may extinguish a fire started by another member of the mob. Mob membership is, by definition, fleeting.

Mobs of longevity are called “hoards.” Genghis Kahn’s army comes to mind, as does the Japanese Army for the Chinese. One could also say the same of the German war machine as it ran over Europe. Mobs are short-lived; hoards are long-lived mobs. What we are witnessing today is the beginning of a hoard born out of Ferguson, MO. This last Sunday, members of the St. Louis Rams football team showed the world that they are members of the “Ferguson Hoard.” Obama, Eric Holder, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, and Al Sharpton are also part of the nationwide hoard bent on making something out of nothing.

Mobs can be controlled. The Ferguson, MO, mob was manipulated to ignore the facts of the case of Michael Brown. The mob was set up to riot at night; why, there was even a countdown put in place, reminiscent of the countdown for the New Year. Plenty of time and space was afforded the news media so they could have ample access to getting unobstructed views of burning buildings.

The call-out of the Missouri National Guard was a joke. It’s like closing the barn door after all the horses were long gone. But that’s not the whole story. The whole story is that the White House called the shots that night: no National Guard means that the order of “shoot-to-kill” the arsonists and looters was never issued, and the town burned. The White House desired looting and buildings going up in flames for the news cameras.

To what end? A race war? No, that be too simple. No, the end game here is to devise a way to quasi-legally abolish the 2nd Amendment. The repercussions of being disarmed are for you and your family being rounded up and carter off in the middle of the night.

America is only America as long as we have the Constitution. Not pressing for perjury charges to those who lied to the Ferguson Grand Jury is a telltale clue which, no doubt, we have the DOJ to blame. The hoard that is now among us acts just as mindless as the hoard that choose Barabbas over Christ.

  1. Jesus offered “hope and change” and look what happened to Him. Now Obama offered “hope and change” and look what’s happened to him. Somewhere along the line, we appear to have missed the boat.
