New article is up on Disinfo, and I’ve got the back story to the violence rocking Milwaukee:
This unjust killing resulted in the widespread chaos and anger deemed the Milwaukee Uprising. As is the case with people doing anything besides voting for puppets liberals were quick to tut-tut about the need for non-violence and conservatives drifted ever closer to calls for lynch mobs.
But this wasn’t the whole story. Couldn’t be. I knew, in some strange animal way, that the REAL story was something far stranger, that the amount of anger in the uprising didn’t match the crime; the rage that had boiled up was too concentrated for just one murder. There were things under the surface, things echoing in the shadow people from out of town wouldn’t even have the ears to hear. Journalists were running around or running for the hills without any idea of who to talk to or why things were happening.
As news crew were getting robbed and chased out of town I was writing an article about Hillary and Trump. Suddenly my inbox lit up.
Somebody from inside Milwaukee wanted to talk to me.
For those who are backing the tired old narrative that this is all “mindless violence” from people “destroying their neighborhoods” I’ll share this little gem from the comments:
“Most poor people are renters not owners and most poor folk dont own the gas station that got burned down and most of those business hire people who live a few miles outside that neighborhood. I think its hilarious that everytime there is a riot, white people act like poor black neighborhoods are all of a sudden socialist collectives.”
