Preserving Disorder

posted at 8:09 pm on September 3, 2012 by

The Occupiers have thundered en masse into Charlotte to protest at the convention — where “protest” has that peculiar meaning of mayhem, murder, rapine, looting, bomb-throwing, sexual assault, overdosing contests, and mopery with intent to gawk, that uniquely characterizes unwashed, doped-up, hippy “Progressivists,” when they gather in dog-packs for a political wilding:

Protesters [“Occupy Charlotte”] numbering as many as 700 people have gathered in the business district of Charlotte, N.C. ahead of the 2012 Democratic National Convention. The anti-war and anti-capitalism demonstrators huddled in Frazier Park on Sunday ahead of their planned march. The group picked Charlotte for publicity because it is the location of the 2012 Democratic National Convention which is scheduled to convene on Tuesday in Charlotte’s Time Warner Cable Arena.

The protesters had signs suggesting that the group included union workers, anti-war veterans, and undocumented immigrants. [I.e., the usual gang of idiots. — DaH]

“Capitalism is holding back the human race,” one sign read. “Bail out people, not banks,” another sign said.

At the same time, the Godfather, Mayor Rahm Emanuel of Chicago (and erstwhile chief of staff of Barack Obama’s Casa Blanca), has sent fifty Chicago cops to the Democratic National Convention, notwithstanding the parlous state of affairs in the Windbag City:

On the heels of a weekend which ended with 2 more dead and 22 more injured from Chicago street’s gunshots, persons attending the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina are shocked and confused to see about 50 Chicago police officers assisting with the Convention’s security.

Another surprising move regarding Chicago and the Convention this week is that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel will be present to give a speech on Tuesday when Chicago is allegedly near-collapse with a teachers’ strike likely to begin within a week as the city is crowned the murder capital of the country.

Does this mean that forty-four years after last time (1968), we’ll once more enjoy the spectacle of Chicago thugs cracking the skulls of Lefties rioting at the Democratic National Convention? Hot rats! (Paging Messrs. Hoffman, Rubin, Hayden, “and the rest.”)

Truly, the wheel has come full circle. As an earlier mayor, Richard J. Daley, put it back then, “The police are not here to create disorder, they’re here to preserve disorder!”

One can’t hardly contain oneself, can one?

Wouldn’t that be “the usual gang of useful idiots”?

Here’s a question for the convention security folks – if one of the Muslim Jumah boys gets a little excited and goes after the Code Pink dancing vajayjays, will he be judged under shariah or US law?
