After riots like those we’ve seen in Ferguson, Milwaukee, and now Charlotte, the same question always arises. Of all the ways to fight a problem, real or perceived, when would burning your own community to the ground be the answer? The racial rioting in Milwaukee and Charlotte are the most puzzling cases, because they were sparked by black officers shooting black men, but many protesters in both cities reacted by expressing anti-white sentiments while rioting.It could be the case that most aren’t acting irrationally — because most aren’t actually destroying their own communities. In fact, most of those arrested in Charlotte thus far don’t even live there, or even in the State of North Carolina at all.
Via Zero Hedge:Confirming what many had suspected when viewing the sudden and intense collapse into anrchy that occurred in Charlotte this week, Todd Walther, spokesman for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Fraternal Order of Police told CNN’s Erin Burnett:
“This is not Charlotte that’s out here. These are outside entities that are coming in and causing these problems.These are not protestors, these are criminals.
We’ve got the instigators that are coming in from the outside. They were coming in on buses from out of state. If you go back and look at some of the arrests that were made last night. I can about say probably 70% of those had out-of-state IDs. They’re not coming from Charlotte.”
As shocking as this statement is, it should not be a total surprise. 18 months ago, as the riots flared in Ferguson, there was one man pulling the strings of this ‘domestic false flag’… George Soros. In an apparent effort to “keep the media’s attention on the city and to widen the scope of the incident to focus on interrelated causes — not just the overpolicing and racial discrimination narratives that were highlighted by the news media in August,” liberal billionaire George Soros donated $33 million to social justice organizations which helped turn events in Ferguson from a local protest into a national flashpoint.Who, or what groups, could be behind the Charlotte riots? Whoever they are, they aren’t citizens “protesting” for justice in their own communities, they’re criminals destroying others.
While it may not come as a shock that most of these “protesters” are not actually protesters, it may be shocking that CNN is reporting the truth in this case, as counter to liberal narrative as it may be.
Of course, CNN’s willingness may or may not have something to do with the fact that one of their own was assaulted by said protesters the other day. Self-interest certainly can have a, shall we say, clarifying effect.[Note: This post was written by The Analytical Economist]
