Palestinian and Communist Groups Join Ferguson Protests

As the Ferguson protests continue around the country, more and more radical groups are joining the ranks.

CBS reports that Palestinian and Communist groups have joined the protests in Portland, Oregon:


“Police in Portland used pepper spray and arrested seven people after hundreds of demonstrators roamed the city and blocked traffic Tuesday night while protesting a grand jury decision not to indict a Missouri police officer in the killing of an 18-year-old.

“…As with Occupy, the vast majority of protesters preached peace, but a fringe group of people — some covering their faces with black bandannas — advocated violence and confrontations with police. And like Occupy, the original protest drew a disparate group of people together, not all of whom agreed with one another.

“Military veterans called for peace, a communist group called for the overthrow of capitalism, and a group calling for a Palestinian state all held court during a series of speeches on the steps of the state Justice Center in Portland.

But the radical leftists are not just contained to Portland, Oregon.

In Oakland California, a revolutionary Communist called for a protest against the “murderous pigs”. (Video) In New York City, a 62 year old Communist shouted chants to the crowd in Times Square. And recently Palestinians sent a message of solidarity to the Ferguson protesters.

As disturbing as this is, the sad reality is that the Ferguson movement has had radical leftest support for some time. At least in St. Louis, Missouri.

Even before the Grand Jury verdict was announced Communists handed out leaflets to students at St. Louis University encouraging that “Amerikkka” should be “brought to a halt” if Officer Wilson wasn’t indicted.

As far back as August, during the first riots in Ferguson, Palestinian groups sent Ferguson protests tips on how to protest.

If the number of radical leftest continues to grow inside the Ferguson movement, it will quickly change to one that seeks to destroy Capitalism and America as we know it.
