I Have Never Been to Missouri…. but as Former Devotee of Agitation Propaganda [AgitProp], I Know Ferguson, MO. Very Well!
Just as we saw the possible denouement of the Israel-Gaza conflict as well as the Ukrainian Borsht disaster, we are now privy to a minute-to-minute indepth report on past, present and potential riots in Ferguson, Missouri. By now everyone but the local police chief knows what has been happening in Ferguson, MO. So I will not belabor the details of the ongoing tragedy that consumes every element of the dysfunctional Missouri state government.
I would, however, like to use this propitious occasion to illustrate some of the basic points that we former Agit Prop devotees have utilized in creating overseas havoc in various different unnamed countries:
 Make certain that the indigenous population is never adequately represented by the ruling security forces. White domination over blacks works; as does, black on black; or, black on white. The key element here is to pick a place where disproportionate representation of the ruling power must be in a minority position.
 Make certain that there is always a peaceful demonstration covering a ‘more lethal, nefarious’ force of ‘chaos’. Be certain to sacrifice the innocent, well-intentioned protesters to the vitriolic needs of the riot-makers.
 Escalate the violence against the ruling party as quickly as possible. Make certain that in a New York minute, the agitation can escalate to the point of totally tying down the local, county and then state police. With some perseverance and Molotov cocktails, stones, rocks, even sporadic gunshots—force the National Guard and, if you are really lucky, bring in the FBI and the Homeland Security Folks.
 Divide and Conquer the Bouillabaisse of conflicting security jurisdictions, pitting local police forces against federal representatives. Then with some tact, force the civilian police to fight with Military representatives and then pit that entire mess against the FBI,
 The more chefs brewing the mess called, ‘peace and order’, the greater the chances that there will be a break down of authority, command-and-control and security.
 Last, but not least, always make certain to invite the major media representatives like Anderson Cooper, Bill O’Reilly, NY Times, Washington Post, et. al. If possible, try to have one of the media representatives arrested for whatever reason. Nothing stirs the pot like a self-righteous representative of the media who has nothing more to do than wait around Ferguson, hoping for more trouble to be precipitated.
 Always make certain that whatever messages are transmitted to the protestors are at best confusing if not completely distorted and mixed. There should be no clarity of purpose or intention by any police officers to either the protestors or the security forces. Nothing beats the spontaneity of incompetence and lack of disciplined experience.
If you are thinking of entering a new profession like Agitation Propaganda, please study the ten day coverage of the most deleteriously conducted police operation in the recent history of America. Ferguson will no longer designate the name of a town…. It will mean a new kind of police mess.
When you create a ‘Ferguson’ that will mean that you should no longer be in Law Enforcement. Please don’t go all-Ferguson on me for telling it like I see it!
Adios Americanos-- Policias!!
