Black Lives Matter riots in Charlotte

I previously predicted that there wouldn’t be any Black Lives Matters riots before the election because “the elites will keep them on a leash until after the election.” However, it looks like I was wrong about that. I guess that once you let loose the hounds, you lose control of them.

This should help Trump.

  1. Charlotte could be a powderkeg if the violence starts to spread just beyond small riots.

    Charlotte has a huge black population and has had a long-standing policy of breaking up low-income black areas and spreading them throughout the metro area. There’s little pockets of ratty apartment complexes scattered all over Mecklenburg county, full of mostly low-income blacks but with middle class blacks not too far away.

    • “Charlotte could be a powderkeg if the violence starts to spread just beyond small riots.”

      Which will not happen. The black leadership is 100% against these riots, they are the only organizational force the black community has.

      Long awaited Ras poll out today, the highly regarded Otis Index now has Hillary leading by 2.3%.

      • The black leadership is 100% against these riots,

        No way. The “black leadership” has no purpose to exist other than to show up at the front of the subsequent press conferences and lead prayer vigils. They love, love, love these riots, it gives them huge power and sway over the Democratic agenda. And it’s not like any black-owned property is getting damaged.

        And if you’re attempting to say that “black leadership” doesn’t want these riots because it helps Trump’s chances of winning then you are crediting with way more strategy and planning than they are truly capable of. Temper tantrums make sense to them, the delayed gratification of checking the Otis index daily to see how Hillary is polling does not.

      • You’re both wrong.

        The old Jesse Jackson type leadership has no control over younger blacks. Not even Al Sharpton. I don’t think they like these BLM riots but there’s nothing they can do.

        At the risk of sounding as if I defend these thugs – I don’t – let me explain what it’s like from a young black man’s point of view.

        He’s got nothing. No jobs, no stable family life, no real religion, and no prospect of same. This is not a normal human life. The only thing he has is a regular sex life, and I’m sure that everyone here thinks the young black man is just an animal who doesn’t need anymore than than that, but I disagree. He’s human, and he needs grounding in human institutions, which he doesn’t have.

        So, a black man gets shot by a cop, and what does he do? He riots. I am not defending it. I am explaining it. And why these riots have nothing to do with leadership, good or bad.


        September 22, 2016 at 1:36 pm

      • Their entire strategy is to provoke riots to use as leverage to demand concessions.

        Jesse and Al don’t WANT to control the younger generation, they’re of the same mind. The younger generation is keeping them relevant, otherwise if a new generation of black people actually behaved properly and lived in an orderly and self-sufficient fashion they wouldn’t need Jesse and Al in any way and they couldn’t shake down corporations for donations to their foundations. Al and Jesse love, love, love these riots.

        When do older black males ever hold younger ones in check? They just don’t work that way. They expect government to do all of the child rearing and mentoring and provide perfect policing, even when they commit crimes at 8-10 times the rate of the rest of the population.

  2. It should help Trump at the margins but that’s about it. Trump’s problem remains suburban whites, and they are not going to go over to Trump because of more BLM nonsense. The only thing that will bring cuck whites around to Trump is a stock market crash or some other huge event. Localized rioting in Charolette isn’t going to do anything.

    September 22, 2016 at 10:22 am

  6. All we need is for some of these “riots” to turn into a few stray roaming attacks on whites away from the main riot area. That will be huge in the news and Charlotte is a place where that could happen, as its nowhere near as segregated as NYC or Chicago and poor blacks often live in very close proximity to whites.


    September 22, 2016 at 10:33 am

    • I think that time has past.

      In their postmortem of why liberalism run amok didnt work in the ’70’s, the Left realizes that it was the concern caused over crime and lawlessness.

      The wont make that mistake again. This time those “unhelpful frames” will not appear on the television set. And if it is not reported, it never happened.

      I think this will help Hillary because
      – lots of talk about the injustice motivating the rioters
      – at least 70% of the coverage will be on the tail of event. Community leaders coming together to get in front of a camera and make speeches. About how the government needs to do more, spend more, control more and this could all be prevented.

      Trump will not be on the winning side of the dialogue.

  8. When I lived in NYC Giuliani and Bloomberg were in charge, and they made it clear that 1) they sided with business and working people against criminals 2) they would make the police do their jobs and 3) if the police did their jobs and got in trouble, they would be there to back them up. The criminal element and the cops knew this, and acted accordingly, and we had relative peace.

    With the Democrats in charge in Washington and so many cities the opposite is the case. We all know Obama and Rodham-Clinton and local Democrat administrations side with criminals against the productive class and against the police, and we’ve seen Obsma’s contempt for the Constitution in his attitude about immigration laws, Obamacare, and foreign treaties, and we’ve seen Rodham-Clinton break all kinds of laws and get away with it. The culture, even the sports world, dudes with the criminals against law enforcement. With Democrats in charge at the federal, local and cultural level, the cops have started slacking, and the criminals have started acting up. Hopefully Trump and others can reverse this trend.

  10. Another televised Reginald Denny beatdown would swing some suburban whites to Trump. Even more so if the victim was a white women this time. it’s kinda pathetic but only seeing a white woman like themselves getting savaged can really overcome the virtue signaling nonsense for some white female voters. they have to be more scared of getting beaten/robbed/raped etc. than they are scared of looking “racist.”

  12. O/T–you commented a few weeks ago that the doom-mongers who predicted that Brexit would be a disaster for the British economy have been proved wrong. I’ve been waiting for this to be acknowledged by the left-wing media in Britain, and this has started to happen now. Two of the leading voices in the Brexit debate were the Office for National Statistics and the OECD, and both have been reported in the last couple of days on the BBC and elsewhere as having revised growth forecasts for Britain and acknowleged that their forecasts were wrong. This is the first time this has happened since Brexit.

    One day, probably sooner than later, the police are going to murder the wrong person’s family member. That person is going to exact their own justice. And that’s going to be the new way of getting justice.

    They think we are just going to protest. And they are very happy to sit back and watch us burn our own communities. Unfortunately for them I think the word is out about destroying our own stuff. I think that, for the most part, is a thing of the past.

    We’ve already seen at least two occasions when Black folks decided to get justice outside of a courtroom by going after police. Once this becomes the norm they are going to wish they had listened to our peaceful protests.

    Peaceful protests are going to seem like the good old days.

    Josh Silver

    September 22, 2016 at 1:07 pm

    • You should do some close listening yourself, so you that you understand what these various rioters actually want. Black people are bored with their lives. They’ve now had 35 years of affirmative action, getting do-nothing jobs, having standards waived for them, teachers and professors kissing their asses, passing them for failing work, receiving free or nearly free phones, utilities, handicapped parking placards even when they’re in their 20s or 30s, on and on. What they want now is the next logical step of ass-kissing, a blanket waiver from criminal liability, a blank check to act any way they want anywhere, any time. It’s just that nobody’s honest enough to make the demand explicitly. Don’t you get it? Blacks have given up on themselves. “Stop expecting us to be human beings – we can’t manage it.” Now that’s real.


      September 22, 2016 at 1:46 pm

    • Your implied premise is false. Wrongful police shootings are very rare.


      September 22, 2016 at 4:30 pm

      • Correct. And we have a president who says the opposite, and a candidate who has literally gone over to that dark side. (She wasn’t in 2008; then she was running as the white working class girl candidate, remember?)

        So, we have an entire political party that is run by people who are literally at war with white America. Where does that leave us?

        And guess what, Hillary is a moderate, compared to what will come after her. Fact. The British Labour Party is the model for what the Democrats will become. There’s a time lag of about 10 years between British & US political trends. When Hillary and Wasserman Schultz and all those comparative moderates are gone, what will happen? It’ll be fun to watch.

        The Dems will turn into the Jeremy Corbyn party, even with all the rich Jewish donors. There will be a civil war between the two factions, but the grass roots will win. They will have their own populist rebellion – and it will be the hard core pro-Palestinian left that will win. What Obama wanted all along.

        Lion dismissed my comment a while back, but that’s the real reason Obama is staying in DC after the election. He has no intention of relinquishing power. He is with us for life.

      • Actually, lion, you did disagree with me. You said that the reason the Obamas were staying in Washington was because of the education of their daughters. You recited the old HBD Party Line about high investment parenting. High investment parenting has nothing to do with the reasons the Obamas are staying in Washington. The fact is that Obama is going to be the shadow president of Black America until the day that he dies.

        It’s true that the clintons have never relinquished power, but at least the Clinton Foundation was a shady cover-up. Obama is not going to cover up any damn thing. He is going to be the president of Black America.

        And that’s why I think that this is this is the election of 1860 Redux. The country is truly splitting apart, although this time it’s not based on sectional rebellion. Or is it? Got any thoughts on that, destructure?

      • And that’s why I think that this is this is the election of 1860 Redux. The country is truly splitting apart, although this time it’s not based on sectional rebellion. Or is it? Got any thoughts on that, destructure?

        I definitely think the country is splitting apart. Not only on ideological grounds but on economic, class, social, racial, etc grounds as well. And it’s being done deliberately. The people who are doing it may not be trying to destroy the country. But the actions they’re taking are being done deliberately. They just don’t realize what effect those actions have because they’re blinded by ideology and emotion. And I’m not just talking about radicals but globalists as well. Though, more and more, it’s hard to tell the difference.

        The direction America is headed will either lead to a 3rd world basket case like Brazil, South Africa, etc; a controlled break-up like the Soviet Union; or a fractious break-up like Yugoslavia, Iraq, etc. The exact policies and why they’ll destroy the country are beyond the scope of this post. But to briefly summarize, $20T national debt, $500B annual budget deficit, $800B annual trade deficit, stagnant economy, over 80 million immigrants over the last 40 years most of whom are an economic burden if not anti-American, and the rise of aggressive regional powers (i.e. Russia, China, Iran, etc) who’ve only been kept in check by fear of American military power. As America weakens they’ll become more aggressive.

        Taken together, these factors will simply stretch America too thin. And I think that’s what globalists want. They see America as an obstacle to their New World Order. They don’t want US hegemony. They want a community of nations. But that will be a disaster because, when no one has hegemony, it’s only a matter of time before someone else tries to fill the vacuum. And that will probably lead to a lot of wars as regional powers fight for control.

        As for Obama, he’s a true believer. He was a radical “community organizer” before he was president. And I don’t see him wanting to give that up after. Whereas most former presidents stayed in the background, he’ll probably be tapped for some foundation or some high profile position that gives him the exposure and influence to push a noxious agenda. And, at only 55, he’ll be a nuisance for a long time.

        PS: This is all just opinion and speculation.So take it for what it’s worth.

        I can’t see the US breaking up. How? Too much money at stake. Anyway that would fall under the category of sectional rebellion.

        OT but this is the best take on Clinton’s health I’ve seen:


        September 23, 2016 at 6:23 pm

      • It could happen here the same way it happened in the Soviet Union. Crappy economy combined with an inefficient and corrupt government bureaucracy. People get fed up and local leaders seize the opportunity. The US is a big country. It would be hard to keep regions from breaking away if people were dissatisfied and the central government was weakened.

        Understand, I’m not saying it would happen now or ever. Of course, we can’t imagine it happening now because those conditions don’t exist now. It absolutely would not happen now. But we’re moving in a direction where conditions would make it possible at some unknown point in the future. I would have no way of knowing how likely it would be because, like I said, those conditions don’t even exist yet.


        September 23, 2016 at 9:17 pm

      • destructure,

        I visited the old Soviet Union a couple of times. The inefficiency and corruption were staggering and apparent to all. They couldn’t get shit done. They couldn’t build a building. Yes – they built nukes (which I take very seriously indeed) but they mostly turned Russia into Camden, NJ.

        As much as I think things suck currently, we are not like that. The US suffers from different maladies. I get your point and everything, and I agree that things cannot keep going on this way, but I don’t see the US breaking up the way the USSR did.

        OK gothamette you smartass, what do you see? A massive military blunder, or massive military defeat, like Tet (which I know wasn’t a real defeat but it was a horrible shock). Something involving China. And our LGBTQ military gets smashed. And this time the core of America, the people who usually get galvanized to defend the homeland, don’t give a flying f. They’ve had it, they’ve checked out. That might happen if Hillary wins. The real alt-right should be in favor of her, because this wouldn’t happen under President Trump.


        September 24, 2016 at 1:31 pm

    • i certainly hope that’s the outcome.

      even though people often hate members of their own family, the nation-state is the best polity. any other inevitably results in one or a few constituent groups dominating the rest. and whether this is “fair” or not is irrelevant. the dominated groups have lost the power of self-determination, and this causes understandable resentment.

      in the case of black americans there is also likely a lot of self-hatred under the surface. black americans who were serious about black power would simply emigrate. but they know that all black countries are almost invariably shitholes. some caribbean countries are the only exceptions.

        Barbados and the Bahamas are somewhat decent due to having very small populations, and abundance of foreign (financial) investment dollars and very vigilant black leadership that is very British-y, staunch and disciplined in a way that you’d never see from black American leaders.


        September 23, 2016 at 9:16 am

      • As I told the original commenter, your implied premise is false. Not only are blacks guaranteed preferential treatment by law, they also have free reign to behave and treat others any way they like. They run wild with racist mobs attacking others at will. And the worse they behave the more the cathedral claims they’re discriminated. The cathedral suffers from a twisted mentality where everyone is not only tabula rasa but an equal one at that. So they scapegoat others and blame “institutional racism” for any disparity including black misbehavior and dysfunction. Institutional discrimination absolutely exists. But blacks aren’t being shorted. They’re the beneficiaries.

        So, no, blacks aren’t being “dominated” and haven’t “lost the power of self-determination”. On the contrary, this is how they behave when coddled and left to their own devices.


        September 23, 2016 at 10:52 am

      • yes. it may be that blacks can do fairly well by themselves if 1. their population is small and 2. they embrace some form of euro-philia…anglo-philia works.

        of course tax avoidance and tourism are limited “sources of revenue”.

        it’s interesting how the incontinent black stereotype is dis-confirmed by the bajan tfr…the lowest in the new world iirc.

        not to mention the poor white trash on the eastern shore…aka the redlegs.

      • Yes, taking long cab rides around the Bahamas I’d normally listen to their local news/NPR station and listen to real, actual political debates there. It was a little odd hearing blacks actually talk about mundane things relating to good governance and sound fiscal policy because you never hear that from blacks in the USA – everything is racism, racism and spend your way to solutions driven by government programs.

        Some of the small Carribbean countries get an influx of cash from the cartels, allowing them to use their small islets and cays to drop shipments at night. The Bahamas has more then 700 islands alone. The 1st Prime Minister of the Bahamas (Lyndon Pindling) made a fortune off allowing the cartels carte blanche to use his islets as staging areas for smuggling into Florida.

    • I think it might be the opposite. BLM rioters are going to attack the wrong white man and will get shot. We saw a few whites drive their cars through the rioters. Rioters in Charliotte ran away when a white in a car drew his gun. Just a matter of time before someone gives BLM the justice they truly deserve.

There are indications of substantial influences from the west on the Shang dynasty. It is quite likely that writing came to China from the west as well as spoked wheels and chariots.

  17. Quinnipiac polls out today for CO, GA, IA, VA show white college and non-college support for Trump consolidating from the same polls a few weeks ago. Hillary’s pro-criminal, pro-illegal, pro-terrorism strategy isn’t working. Very good news.

    • From the polling I’ve seen, especially the internals beyond just the top line results, I think Trump will comfortably hold the Romney states including NC and has already added FL, IA and OH to his column. I haven’t seen too much polling out of PA but they don’t have early voting so Trump hasn’t concentrated as much time there. But if whites are beginning to consolidate around Trump elsewhere you’ve got to think the same is happening in PA. And this is all pre-Charlotte. He’s got lots of ways to get to 270 right now but flipping PA would end it for Hillary.

    • Sidetracking a bit: Ivy Leagues aren’t what they were a decade ago. Besides HYP and Columbia, the rest of the Ivies seems almost non-relevant.

      If Mayor DeDumbio of NYC is able to get his son into Yale, it tells you a lot about of our current state of affairs. America is no longer a semblance of its glorious past.

  18. supposedly Lyin’ Ted is about to endorse Trump. Why? What does he get out of this?

    His supporters are all furious and it certainly isn’t going to win over any Trumpians. This makes no sense.

    • Over at Free Republic there is a mix of reactions to this. Many Trumpians are saying “too little, too late, Lyin Ted.” But many others are willing to forgive and are grateful for this endorsement. This won’t change my vote. I’m still voting for Hilary because I think Trump is bad for the Republican party’s future. But I hear that Cruz changed his mind because Trump promised to “consider” picking a judicial appointee from a Cruz-approved list. Yes, “consider.” Cruz would be a fool if he gave his endorsement for this reason. Trump is going to appoint people who vote the way HE (Trump) wants. This means people economically moderate, conservative on borders and immigration, and mainly liberal on social issues. There will be no Scalia or Rehnquist types appointed by Trump.


      September 23, 2016 at 4:36 pm

      • Cruz’s endorsement is devastating to what is left of the Conservative movement because it removes your last leader. Glenn Beck’s empire is going out of business, Levin has already flipped and now Cruz undercuts the TruCons like Deace and Sykes.

        The only acceptable TruCon in 2020, assuming Trump doesn’t win, will be Ben Sasse, and he is a total lightweight.

        What I’m most happy about is that now the TruCons have to admit that Cruz is a fraud, just like literally everybody else always knew.

      • You’re voting FOR pro-late term abortion Killary? Aren’t you supposed to be some kind of Catholic?

      • “You’re voting FOR pro-late term abortion Killary? Aren’t you supposed to be some kind of Catholic?

        No wonder Christianity is withering away.”

        Actually, I’m an evangelical. But yes, I understand what Hilary Clinton’s views are on abortion – and every other issue. I’m not saying I’d be happy with a Hilary presidency policy-wise. Trump is at least somewhat closer to me on the issues than she is. But as I’ve said before, this isn’t the only factor to consider. I think the U.S. is so far gone culturally that some form of conservatism (as opposed to mere Republicanism) is all that can save it long term. With Hilary as president conservatives at least can retain control of the Republican party and provide a vigorous opposition. But a Trump win means that conservatives will lose control of even the Republican party as “Trumpism” (vulgarity and social liberalism married to economic nationalism) becomes the main opposition to the Left. To me this would damage the country more than a single term of Hilary.

        Of course, I could be wrong about Trump’s intentions and what effect he’ll have on the party and the nation. But anyone could be wrong about anything. I can only use my best judgment.

        Why can’t you use a hellfire on a crowd? If it pierces armor it can kill people, no?

  21. Charlotte report- I headed out about 7:00 or so, took the light rail in to uptown. No hassles. Disembarked and was met with a lot of national guards and humvees, few people taking pictures with them. Heaviest National Guard presence was in front of the Omni Hotel, that was a veritable phalanx of overweight black women in uniform.

    Went to Connollys on 5th to get a drink. Ended up staying there until about 11 or so when last call called due to curfew, bartenders very pissed about that, the Irish bartender was saying even during the “troubles” they didn’t close early in “whereverthefuck in Ireland” he’s from but really, he’s too young for all that.

    Went back out, really no different than a regular Friday night. Uptown residents jogging, homeless people, just not as many people walking around is all. Guys with manbuns wandering about. Few kids with bandanas covering their face which was more fashion than anything. Newspeople look extremely pissed.

    Close to transit center I find the rally; pathetic, some black preachers were preachifying but a gospel choir was singing and coupled with the the helicopter parked overhead, couldn’t hear a word said. National Guard looked pretty bored. Maybe 200 people. I wander in the crowd and leave out of sheer boredom.

    Go back to wait for train. Down below the cops and firefighters are waiting around in separate groups. A couple people take pictures with firefighters, couple people yell at cops. heh.

    Earlier today, cell phone video from the dead guys wife was released, doesn’t prove one way or another what happened but it is disturbing, I thought it would work the crowd up. Turns out the guy who got shot reportedly had Traumatic Brain Injury a couple months back and was on medication. If true would explain why he was acting in a confused manner but evidence says he did have a gun.

    Couple weeks ago, Charlotte cops shot a white deaf kid dead who wasn’t complying with orders. Everybodys forgotten that. Charlotte police don’t have a problem with shooting blacks, it’s just the disabled.

    Earlier today the mayor threw the police chief under the bus regarding releasing the video. She’s the one who wants delusional middle aged men to share the bathroom with 14 year old girls. Police Chief, black, is not so much a moron but a typical middle management type.

    Worst. Riot. Ever.

    Driving back, stopped in McDonalds drivethru, black woman working since 7 without a break, they aren’t closing for curfew, lot’s of people about really. Tranny/Gay bar down the street closed for curfew but they’re all milling about. What a ridiculous city I live in.

    Maybe tomorrow will be better.

  22. The left has been using blacks as its political/cultural storm-troopers for decades. But blacks are like a home-made explosive – powerful but unstable. Should the day come when a large part of the population gets fed up with the whole circus it won’t be too difficult to use that unstable explosive against the system.

    This won’t hurt Clinton much, this isn’t 1980’s white America, it’s a multiracial, multicultural empire where the various groups mostly vote their self-interests and don’t worry about the consequences to the general nation. Think Venezuela or Marion Barry’s D.C. A Nation has to have a sense of cultural honor to become incensed at this level of embarrassing barbarism, and we don’t have that anymore. We don’t really have a common culture so that’s not surprising. As long as it doesn’t get out of hand it might even help Hillary with some of the more pusillanimous voters and blacks. Plenty of people think it’s a conscious get-out-the-black-vote effort to support Hillary’s campaign. Certainly the leftists organizing and energizing it do. Certainly Soros does.

    Even more than ever, nothing is real until the media says it’s real. Leftists have been beating anyone who disagrees with them, attempting to assassinate Trump, killing cops, etc., this entire election cycle with no consequences to Sanders or Clinton. The Dems don’t dog-whistle black racism, dog-whistle implies subtlety. Their whole coalition is united only by hatred of and a desire to exploit whites. It’s not like it’s been a secret. As long as it’s not controversial to the media it doesn’t matter much. Latest story is that Hillary’s campaign paid to have the Sacred Mothers of the Black Saints sent to Charlotte, so she’s clearly not afraid of association.

  23. Charlotte TV station WCNC stands by two photos taken by a bystander that shows a gun near the “subject” (the chief of police’s term for the dead guy). In the first photo, taken immediately after the shooting, a gun is partly visible on the ground between the shoes of a standing cop, apparently standard police procedure to prevent the perp from regaining control of the weapon. In the second photo, taken some seconds or minutes later, the gun is clearly visible on the ground. The subject was a felon, so had forfeited his gun rights.

    • There’s an entire twitter army that disbelieves facts and Hillary is at the head of it. Allegedly, she was going to visit Charlotte, but cancelled. I don’t know if it’s because the visit was politically unwise, or because she’s dying.

  24. Video Released, apparently he was rolling a marijuana blunt and waving his gun about while sitting in his truck, that’s what drew police attention, keep in mind, according to his wife he was waiting to pick up his child from school, I am suggesting we create a Keith Lamont (heh) Scott Father of the Year Award in the same vein as the Freddie Gray Center (for wayward youth?).
    I figured uptown would be boring so I’d rather hang out and drink here, good choice I think. Feed the stray cats, drink some Costco wine, look at the stars, life is good not being black.

    I grew up in Concord, about 20 miles north, 40 years ago some black guy got himself killed in Concord because he couldn’t be bothered to follow police orders and they rioted then. I remember my father and neighbor armed with shotguns to keep the neighborhood safe.
    It just never stops with blacks and it never will, if the educated ones could demonstrate just a hint of shame, it wouldn’t be such a pill to swallow.
    Thank you black people, it’s not like Bank of America employees and the rest actually need to work uptown.

      LOL. Made me think of the Chris Rock routine, Black People & N****z. His advice was if you want to keep your money safe from black thugs, put it in a book, because a book is kryptonite to n****z.
