…then you know that wannabe revolutionaries’ ideals are the establishment ideology.
Yet another case in point: The Police Chief of Portsmouth, Virginia, who happens to be a Black woman, was fired for daring to enforce the law against the rioters, including a sitting Democratic state Senator. The Democrats in Virginia, by the way, only have a 21-19 majority in the state Senate.
“The police chief of Portsmouth, Virginia, was fired Monday in what she suggested was a politically motivated move moments before criminal charges were dropped against a prominent state senator and several local Black leaders accused of conspiring to damage a Confederate statue during a protest this year.
“Portsmouth police in August charged [state Sen. Louise] Lucas and 18 other plaintiffs, including a school board member and members of the local NAACP chapter and the public defender’s office, with conspiracy to commit a felony and injury to a monument in excess of $1,000.”
And what happened?
“But a dismissal motion filed by the Portsmouth Commonwealth Attorney’s Office said there was “no proper evidence” to support the charges that the plaintiffs’ actions “rise to the level of felony destruction of property or conspiracy.” Video from the scene and other digital evidence were also unreliable, according to the motion.
“In dismissing the charges Monday, a judge also questioned why police went around local prosecutors to bring charges.
“City leaders had initially questioned Greene’s involvement in investigating the Confederate protest because of an unspecified conflict of interest. Local activists and clergy leaders called for her resignation or firing.
“In September, Greene, who became police chief in 2019, took an indefinite leave of absence. Rallies were also held in her support.
“On Monday morning, she held up a copy of her termination letter during a news conference.
“‘I believe I was wrongfully terminated for upholding the law and being retaliated against for sticking to my sworn oath that I swore to serve and protect my citizens, community and keeping my officers safe,’ she said.
“Greene said city leaders did not provide a reason for her firing other than that she was an ‘at-will employee.’ She added that she planned to sue the city, saying law enforcement should be “able to protect the community and enforce the law without interference from political leaders.”
The ideology of the rioters who want to bring down the establishment is the ideology of the establishment. The threat is a pincer movement of the rioters and the political class, with the rule of law being crushed in the middle.
