Fresh on the heels of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida, the Democratic wing of the one-party bird is set to begin their own three-day circus party in the city of Charlotte, North Carolina.
As is the case every year, both parties either have or will be accompanied with the symbols of freedom that every American has come to know and love – militarized police, random checkpoints, warrantless searches, and a virtual lockdown of the entire area surrounding the convention.
Of course, while the average person who lives, works, and produces in the general area is subjected to, at best, a major inconvenience of their daily routine and, at worst, a gross violation of their Constitutional rights under a police state crackdown, many of the more upscale attendees of the DNC will enjoy what amounts to royal immunity as they skirt about town and partake of some of the finest women (or men) and drugs that money can buy.
The difference between the 2012 DNC and all the others, however, is the openness in which both the revelry and police state will take place. For instance, even the local Charlotte media is openly publishing articles about the annual powder party known as the DNC.
A local publication, Creative Loafing, actually published an article by Christina Wilkie and Ryan Pitkin, entitled “Dirty Politics: Charlotte’s underground hungrily awaits the DNC,” where the authors interviewed individuals ranging from small time drug dealers to police and club owners. What they reported was that virtually all of the Charlotte “underworld” was eagerly awaiting the coming convention in hopes that bulk sales and wealthy partiers will provide easy and plentiful money during the three days of the event.
In a telling passage in the article, Wilkie and Pitkin write,
Thomas is a local nightclub promoter who knows well the habits of his clientele. Because of the risk – and grave consequences – that come with transporting drugs across state lines, Thomas says many visitors will be on the hunt during the convention. The DNC is expected to bring 35,000 people to Charlotte, including some 5,000 delegates and VIPs, 15,000 journalists, and another 15,000 staffers, volunteers, security personnel, tourists, protesters, and vendors.
The article continues by saying,
Thomas – whose name has been changed – says the fancy suits of powerful politicians and executives can be deceiving when it comes to partaking in drugs and other vice. ‘There are so many people you wouldn’t expect,’ Thomas says. ‘Lawyers, doctors, bankers. For me, it’s actually more rare to find someone who doesn’t do any of it.’
Yet, as the Wilkie and Pitkin article states, “For some conventioneers, it isn’t what they’ll be bringing back to their private parties – it’s who.”
According to Charity Magnuson, the operator of the nonprofit organization NC Stop Human Trafficking, “There will be women for sale and most of them will have been trafficked one way or another.”
However, with all the incoming money set aside for purchasing illegal drugs, the article claims that the word on the street is that drugs entering the Charlotte area have “dried up” in recent weeks.
Of course, one should keep in mind that the drugs referred to in this article are those being distributed by small or, at best, mid-level dealers. One should not assume that because the average Charlotte junkie is having a harder time finding the drug of his choice, that high-level Democrats, bankers, and other government officials will encounter such trouble. Nor will the worker bees of the political system have any difficulty in locating the highest quality prostitutes and an abundance of their favorite substances. They never had such trouble before, and they are not likely to do so now.
