Riots and Economic Ruin: Welcome to The Roy Cooper Era
The drive-by media appears to take great pleasure in regaling us with tales of alleged, purported racism.
They seem to have quite a bit of fun stoking anger in black people and scaring the hell out of white people. But the fun starts to dissipate when the drive-bys’s own offices get vandalized and their own people get the crap kicked out of them:
Once again, the drive-bys have taken a local crime story and elevated it to a national crisis. Professional agitators — who likely never met George Floyd nor even know his name — have taken to the streets to break and burn stuff. People who were nowhere near the Minneapolis incident are being victimized by this mayhem purportedly being enacted in the name of civil rights.
The N&O appears to have worked coronavirus into the riot story:
As the armored riot police are gearing up in Raleigh, Roy Cooper himself has found his way in front of the cameras:
[…]“Unfortunately, today the headlines are not about those protestors and their calls for serious, meaningful change. They are more about riots, and tear gas, and broken windows, and stolen property. I fear the cry of the people is being drowned out by the noise of riots,” Governor Cooper said Sunday. “Let me be clear about one thing: People are more important than property. Black Lives do Matter.”[…]
*Wow. Talk about a Profile in Courage.* I sure would rather hear my governor say something like: “Stop burning police cars. Stop looting businesses. Stop assaulting police officers and innocent bystanders.”
But, no. Ol’ Roy has to play to his political base. (Of course, the mob may decide to turn on his house on Blount Street.)
Congratulations. We’ve become a Third World Country. We’re seeing footage on our local streets that could have been shot in any Central or South American country.
(You know, I’m actually old enough to remember when the media told us how dangerous it was to march against the coronavirus lockdown. )
This is clearly no longer about an incident in Minneapolis. It’s a devious political agenda at work. We’ve got a weekly massacre of young minority men BY other young minority men in cities across the country. If you’re truly concerned about the lives of young minority men, tackle THAT problem.
The Minneapolis incident needs to work its way through proper channels so everyone gets their day in court and any necessary punishments are doled out.

Cooper, Raleigh mayor, Raleigh police chief, EPIC FAILURE.
Cooper’s presser on Sunday was mindless chatter. Clearly off his game; his comments were ill-advised and it appears he was thrown out there very unprepared. However, unsure IF that moves Forrest any closer? Hopefully, this past wknd opened up many eyes…we can only hope.
I’m surprised that Cooper and his liberal comrades were not out in the
street registering voters. How else can this do nothing buffoon get reelected.
Sad that our Republican leaders have gone into hiding–but that is their usual response. Besides, who are Republicans to criticize Cooper? Have we forgotten that the first Antifa attack in NC was on the Boy Soldier War Memorial at UNC–and have we forgotten that the Republican legislature and Republican Board of Governors ran for cover and totally capitulated to the Antifa mob? The NC Republican RINO Establishment is just as worthless as Cooper, if not worse.
So only Republicans are wrong & Cooper is right to incite the mob even more? Did you have a family valued upbringing? I’d be shocked if you did. Did you???
I agree with Boyd–it was the Republicans who first surrendered to the Antifa mob in North Carolina. Antifa is now back with a vengeance because the Republicans let them know that there would be no penalty imposed for their crimes. That is a fact and should shame every Republican in the state.
If I were a republican I would be ashamed. If I were a democrat I would be asking what in the hell
happened to our party when we can not win without deadbeats and welfare rioters and Antifa.
No. I’ve not forgotten. It appears we are on our own, again.
Obviously, I agree with Boyd too. With all due respect, I don’t see anything about dictator Roy being right or only Republicans being wrong.
