Tis’ a cloudy Monday here in central NC. We started the show off with the Charlotte riots. The video footage released (by the wife and now the cops) has only agitated the situation. We cannot discuss the Charlotte riots without touching on Black Lives Matter and other organizations being coordinated in order to further the unrest. BLM and the NAACP’s William Barber both have ties to George Soros who is largely responsible for funding these groups and “wactivists.” What has and continues to happen in Charlotte is being characterized and fed by the media. It is also amplified by activist organizations like Mission Gathering, which poses as a church and #CharlotteUprising, which poses as an organization in search of solutions.
During the first hour we were joined by former radio host and law enforcement officer, Marc Benson. We discussed the underlying issues of the Charlotte riots, mainly culture and the narratives being circulated. Culture has turned perpetrators into victim, which is why facts are ignored and emotion rules. Marc called BLM a terrorist group contrasting them with the peaceful protests of MLK in the civil rights era. We also discussed how the continual assault on police officers will motivate them not to do their job. Officers who are treated poorly because they wear the uniform will become disengaged from their responsibilities.
We started the second hour of the program with Drew Elliot of the North State Journal. Before getting to the Charlotte riots, we discussed Drew’s editorial on the relationship between Senate Bill 2 (SB2) and House Bill 2 (HB2), vastly different bills with a segue. HB2 has faded from the scene during the riots, but the left has not forgotten about it. Drew, a former Charlottean, discussed the nature by which Charlotte has handled racial issues in the past. The efforts by the left to characterize the city as racial are purely political. Barber has called for federal investigation in order to make the state, and therefore Governor McCrory, appear untrustworthy.
Before our last guest we went through an article on why Scott Adams, Dilbert’s creator, switched his vote from Hillary to Trump. Adams said Hillary is intentionally misleading people about her tax policy, the one issue Adams says he understands. Trump has been able to perfect the art of pacing and leading. The column is far more interesting than the notes.
We ended the show with Bobby Knight, former Indiana Basketball coach, who set winning records during his time in NCAA. Knight has been open about his support for Trump and believes Trump has the proper tools needed to lead the country. Knight echoed the frustrations many Americans have with Washington Politicians. Knight said he doesn’t care about parties or politicians, but wants the best person for the job.
