What The Charlotte Violence Is Really About – Riot First And Don’t Ask Questions Later


Another fatal shooting of a black citizen in Charlotte, North Carolina, this time by a black police officer whose chief of police is also a black man, sets a now-normalized cycle of violence into motion.  The mob becomes infused with emotional screams containing false information from hysterical participants, who have not a clue as to what happened to precipitate the police shooting.  That doesn’t matter.

The mob riots.  More people die.  Even more rumors fly through the pandemonium about who killed the latest victims.  The beleaguered police become more and more de-legitimized by slanted press coverage and calls for “social justice” yelled out over the airwaves by politicians.  Finally, at some point, civil order entirely collapses.  Or perhaps it already has collapsed.

Underlying facts don’t matter any longer.  The immediate response to any police shooting is now a riot and we’re being conditioned to accept it as a matter of course, much as we’re being conditioned to accept acts of violent jihad as the new normality.  The mobs are taking over.

So, who and what are behind the mobs?  Diana West’s recent essay, based upon Vladimir Lenin’s writing gives us a good starting point.  She published her piece following the recent killings of five Dallas Police Officers.  Diana writes, in part:

In The State and Revolution, V. I. Lenin elaborates on Marx’s demonic ravings about a violent revolution to create a state of “armed workers” that will itself “begin to wither away.” Madness. Beginning with the first Bolshevik regime in the Soviet Union under Lenin, all such revolutions have only created monstrous dictatorships, which, far from withering away, have slaughtered millions and millions of their own and other peoples all over Planet Earth.

Did five more die in Dallas last night?

Lenin saw police as the front line of the enemy — the enemy, of course, being existing society, which had to be destroyed.

…at a certain stage in the development of democracy, it first welds together the class that wages a revolutionary struggle against capitalism — the proletariat — and enables it to crush, smash to smithereens, wipe off the face of the earth the bourgeois, even the republican-bourgeois, state machine — the standing army, the police and the bureaucracy — and to substitute for it a more democratic state machine, but a state machine nevertheless, in the shape of the armed masses of workers who develop into a militia in which the entire population takes part…

…In “What Is To Be Done?” Lenin set forth the strategy:

…the Social-Democrat’s [Communist’s] ideal should not be the trade union secretary, but the tribune of the people, who is able to react to every manifestation of tyranny and oppression, no matter where it appears, no matter what stratum or class of the people it affects; who is able to generalise all these manifestations and produce a single picture of police violence and capitalist exploitation; who is able to take advantage of every event, however small, in order to set forth before all his socialist convictions and his democratic demands, in order to clarify for all and everyone the world-historic significance of the struggle for the emancipation of the proletariat…

Read all of it.  Diana’s analyses are always well-thought out and supported by solid documentary evidence.

The problem is that the rioting mobs and the voices which are spurring them on are not interested in any stinking documentary evidence.  There is a very sinister agenda at work here.  As Diana finishes her essay her analysis of Barack Obama’s response to investigations of police shootings and the subsequent riots:

…But regardless of the outcome of such [police] investigations, what’s clear is that these fatal shootings are not isolated incidents. They are symptomatic of the broader challenges within our criminal justice system, the racial disparities that appear across the system year after year, and the resulting lack of trust that exists between law enforcement and too many of the communities they serve.

But regardless of the outcome of such investigations — ?

In other words, no matter what caused these officers to use lethal force against individuals (whose records and apparent gang affiliations remain opaque to the MSM), Obama must lay down the generalizing narrative that produces “a single picture of police violence” — even if it is a false scent, which has already become a bloody trail.

Lenin would be very pleased.

Indeed.  He would be delighted.

About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.
