One would think that the Raleigh Chamber would represent and serve the interests of Raleigh and greater Wake County businesses. Indeed they note on their website:

Build a thriving regional economy. The Chamber is an active partner in driving the region’s economic growth and global competitiveness by:

  • Serving as the catalyst and convener for regional economic development and collaboration.
  • Attracting businesses to the area that contribute to our economy’s innovation, vibrancy, and prosperity, and supporting business retention and expansion throughout the Greater Raleigh area.
  • Actively marketing Wake County to targeted industries as the best place for business, and supporting regional marketing initiatives.
  • Building a strong, diverse pipeline of talent through recruitment, development, and retention programs and services.

But recent actions this year suggest a different path:

 — The Raleigh Chamber of Commerce invited Ben & Jerry's CEO Matthew McCarthy to speak to local business leaders in an effort to discuss corporate activism at a time of social unrest.


At a time when many downtown Raleigh businesses have suffered immensely from the violence emanating from the Black Lives Matter movement, the Raleigh Chamber of Commerce promotes it.

We appreciate that WakeUp Wake County Board of Education member Roxie Cash openly acknowledges it's about power.

Remember this photo

It made the Wake County progressive community hysterical

Wake County Board of Commissioners Chairman Greg Ford referred to it as a "rocket launcher."

So what happened here? Pretty simple. The gentleman followed the law while carrying a weapon. He went into the Subway shop on Fayetteville Street in Raleigh. As the picture presents, he pulled out cash. He presumably bought a sandwich. He gave the Subway shop business. He gave them money. They gave him a product. Everyone is happy. 

Okay, so it looks a little odd. A lot of stuff around Raleigh looks odd the last month. But nothing illegal or dangerous. 

But what didn't make the progressive community hysterical? 

Countless buildings and businesses vandalized and destroyed. Among those? 

That same Subway shop. The one the gentleman with the "rocket launcher" patronized. 

He gave them business. The Black Lives Matter allies of the Wake County progressive cause gave the same Subway shop $80,000 in damages. They also put people who desperately need a job at this time out of work.

We would be willing to bet if Mr. Rocket Launcher and his friends had patronized the Subway that night the owner would still have his business open ... and would have had some paying customers as well.
