Altercation begins at about 5:55: A recently released St. Louis dashboard camera shows part of a contested arrest. (Graphic content)

Hat/Tip to CounterCurrentNews and Chicago Tribune.

Videos have been released that allegedly show another confrontation between Ferguson, MO police and another young man. This incident is purported to have occurred a few weeks before the Michael Brown incident that sparked riots, looting and national outrage.

A recently released video of an arrest in which St. Louis police are accused of using excessive force shows officers pulling a resisting suspect from a car, kicking him and shocking him with a stun gun before the camera is shut off abruptly.

The dashboard camera video ends after an officer involved in the April 2014 arrest of Cortez Bufford yells, in part, “Everybody hold up. We’re red right now!” the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported this week.

(Altercation begins at about 5:55 in video above)

Joel Schwartz and Bevis Schock, the attorneys who filed suit on behalf of Bufford last month in St. Louis Circuit Court, say “red” is cop slang for a running camera. They say the video, which they released, supports their case that police lacked probable cause and applied excessive force in the arrest. The charges against Bufford of unlawful use of a weapon and resisting arrest were later dropped.

A circuit attorney’s spokeswoman, Susan Ryan, told the newspaper the case was dismissed because “the action of turning off the dash cam video diminished the evidentiary merits of the case.” She also said a review showed the officers did not break the law.

A police spokeswoman told KTVI-TV that the officer who turned off the camera “has been recommended” for discipline but is appealing.

A lawyer for the St. Louis Police Officers’ Association insists the video reflects a proper escalation of force applied against a resisting suspect who reached for a gun.

The stop followed 911 reports of shots fired. Five minutes later, according to a police report, two officers watched as a silver Ford Taurus made an “illegal” U-turn and “abruptly parked.” One officer searched and handcuffed the passenger as the other talked through the car window with Bufford, the driver, the report said.

One officer wrote of smelling marijuana and seeing “plastic baggies and a green leafy substance.” Bufford “became agitated,” one officer wrote, refused to give his name and reached for a pants pocket before the officer warned him to keep his hands in view. Bufford refused orders to get out, and an officer called for backup when Bufford became “increasingly hostile,” according to the report.

The report said that after an officer maneuvered Bufford to the ground, Bufford struggled and reached for his pocket. The video shows officers struggling with Bufford as another arrives and kicks at him. The police report says an officer administered a “foot strike” to keep Bufford from reaching his weapon.

Bufford hit and kicked several officers, the report says, before another officer “administered a foot strike” to the leg, and Bufford was jolted with a Taser twice.

You’ve seen the post image, I’ve used it for years.  This story explains why I use it.  It is one story of many-union goons caught violating the law.  However, what this makes this story a rarity is that the goons were caught and indicted…

10 In Union ‘Goon Squads’ Indicted For Violence, Arson In Philadelphia – The Foundry

Ten members of a Philadelphia ironworkers union are charged with conspiring to commit extortion, arson, destruction of property, and assault to force construction contractors to hire union workers, according to the FBI.

.

.
The FBI this week said the members of Ironworkers Local 401 collaborated with allies who sought out construction sites that employed non-union workers, threatening personnel there with “violence, destruction of property or other criminal acts unless union members were hired.”

So-called “goon squads,” including a group calling itself “The Helpful Union Guys” (or THUGs) went into action. Some “set a crane on fire and cut steel beams and colts” at a Quaker Meeting House construction site in 2012, according to the indictment. In 2010, union members assaulted non-union workers with baseball bats at another construction site.

In 2013, they “threatened the contractor of an apartment complex… if he did not hire Local 401 members,” the indictment said. As a result, “the contractor relinquished his profits and turned the job over to a union-affiliated contractor.”

Experts say such incidents go both under-reported and prosecuted. National Institute for Labor Relations Research has documented over 9,000 reports of union violence since 1975, of which “barely 3 percent… have led to an arrest and conviction.”

This story has it all; vandalism, destruction of property, threats, arson, you name it.  It’s union goons in action.  And, all of this reflects back to one fact-that unions are so great, that people have to be forced to deal with them.

This is Liberalism: Pro Abortion Crowd Attacks Praying Men Protecting a Church

leftyprotests

OK, consider the following…

1.  A large group of men stand vigil outside a church to guard it from vandalism.

2.  They men do nothing more than pray, and block access to a cathedral from topless feminists that want to kill babies, and vandalize the church.

3.  The feminists attack the men.

4.  The men continue to pray, and do not retaliate.

That did happen in Argentina.  Here is the video, from Life News…

Now, considering all of this, any liberal will tell you that the Christians are the hateful ones.

Remember that we are now in an age where good is evil, and evil is good.

union thug
So great, you’ll be forced to join!

This blog has long been a place to look at union violence.  From the Verizon strike, to the gooning up of Wisconsin, Unions have cast a never ending reign of terror over the US for far too long.  Victims have suffered beatings, stabbings, shootings, vandalism, threats, intimidation, and the like.  Here are some informational videos…

Is it just me, or did that video seem like a mafia movie?

A tragic story.

Unions: So Great, That People Have to be Forced to Join!  Or Else!

So, on this day, please remember those victims of union violence.

Great Moments of Civil Discourse: Tolerant Obama Supporters Threaten to Vandalize Cars with Romney Stickers

Share

It’s time for another exercise in civil discourse.  This one involves the lovely and all so tolerant leftists that are so tolerant, that they threaten to vandalize the cars of people that would dare oppose them.  Moonbattery has the details of the loving tolerance of the tolerant left.  

Twitchy reports:

As Twitchy has reported, unhinged supporters of President Barack Obama are stealing, defacing, and urinating on pro-Mitt Romney yard signs and bumper stickers.

A favorite tactic is to ruin the finish of cars with Romney stickers by scratching them with keys:

key-romney-supporters-tweets

The idea of course is to intimidate people from showing support for Romney, so that other patriots won’t realize that they are not alone.

This is, or course, typical tolerant behavior for the tolerant left.  So well known for their tolerance, the tolerant left apparently isn’t so tolerant of people that do not agree with them 100%.  And, as an act of tolerance, the tolerant left will punish and intimidate those that disagree with them, out of tolerance, of course.

Occupy Leave RNC Sad

Share

Apparently, the Occupy crowd is sad.  Their numbers were low for the GOP Convention, and they were not able to disrupt any activities, or even destroy property on a massive scale.

How very, very sad.

The Daily Caller has some coverage.  I’ll translate the responses ftom the occupods…

Following a fragmented march against the GOP, TheDC’s photo team spoke to several protesters who said they were disappointed by low turnout at protests and the lack of open discussion between protesters and Republican leadership.

Translation:  The GOP didn’t allow us to harass,  berate, or  shout them down! 

Remember kids, open discussion with a liberal means that only they get to speak.

Referencing the large number of bicycle-based police officers, a protester named Lash told TheDC, “we can see liberty crumbling on bikes.”

Translation:  These cops won’t let us trash this city!

Cops on bicycles are apparently very menacing to liberal bomb throwers.  Who would have known?

“I love that we have an anarchist forum here, and I really love us, but I hate that our forum can’t even talk with their conservative forum,” he said. “The police just silence us, the Republicans just silence us. We are just getting silenced everywhere we go. It’s like no one wants to even hear what we have to say.”

Translation:  Waaaaa!  No one wants to talk to us, so we’ll claim that it’s a conspiracy to silence us.

OK then, a small cadre of Marxist hacks try to disrupt the RNC, and fail.  They were never interested in open dialogue, nor were they interested in exchanging idea.  They wanted to trash the place, and they just didn’t have enough moonbats to pull it off.  So, they’ll follow the old liberal game plan of claiming victim-hood.

Well, at least there weren’t any rapes reported, or they intimidated the victims into not coming forward.

Did the Obama Administration Tell Local Authorities to Take it Easy on the Occupods?

Share

We know that the occupods caused millions of dollars in damages, committed multiple rapes,  and generally made a nuisance of themselves, local governments had difficulty with assigning the necessary resources in order to protect life and property.  However, it appears that the Obama Administration was very helpful, and gave wise advise…

The Obama administration told law enforcement authorities to go easy on Occupy Wall Street protesters, even though they were violating local laws, according to documents obtained by watchdog group Judicial Watch.

Emails from the General Services Administration show that the federal agency, acting on orders from the White House, told federal law enforcement authorities in Portland, Ore., not to enforce curfews on protesters camped out on federal property…

“They have chained themselves to a large drum filled with concrete,” reads an email from Department of Homeland Security/National Protection and Programs Directorate Chief of Staff Caitlin Durkovich to GSA Public Buildings Service Commissioner Robert Peck. “GSA controls the permits and has asked FPS [Federal Protective Services] not to enforce the curfew at park and the prohibition on overnight encampments…

Peck — who later resigned amid revelations his agency held lavish junkets at taxpayers’ expense — replied: “Caitlin: yes, that is our position; it’s been vetted with our administrator and Michael Robertson, our chief of staff, and we have communicated with the WH [White House], which has afforded us the discretion to fashion our approach to Occupy issues…The arrests last week were carried out despite our request that the protesters be allowed to remain and to camp overnight…”

Well, it seems that there is a big difference between the Tea Party…

No rapes

No murders

No vandalism (in fact, they often left the place they visited cleaner than it was before)

But, my friends, that same Obama Administration declared the Tea Parties “Dangerous Terrorists!”  And then, to top it off?  The administration sends letters to local governments telling them to not arrest the occupods!

Leftist Claims “Democracy Died Tonight,” Because They Lost a Democratic Vote

Share

As we all know, our lefty opponents love to chant, “this is what democracy looks like.”  Of course, what that really means is preventing votes by fleeing, beating up opponents, vandalizing property, intimidating businesses, and the like.  Then, any vote that they actually lose is NOT democracy.   Take a listen to the following, via Brietbart…

So, this guy is quoting some of the new talking points. Let’s assume that his $30,000,000 figure is correct for pro-Walker spending. Then, let’s take a look at the fact that the unions have thrown $60,000,000 into Wisconsin-a rather convenient omission, if you ask me.

So, let’s review the liberal definition of “democracy.”

1. “democracy” means only they can win. Any other result? It’s someone else’s fault.

2. Only they represent the “people,” and “democracy” means that if the people disagree, then they people should be beaten into submission, and forced into compliance.

3. Everyone should be unionized, whether they want it or not, because “democracy” equals force.

4. “democracy” means that votes that they will lose should not occur.

5. “democracy” means that everyone should vote, including the dead-repeatedly.

6. “democracy” means that people should be intimidated into voting the “correct” way, or coerced into supporting the “correct” causes.

And, if you agree with this post, you are an evil person who should be visited by some union thugs to make your mind right. Because, my friends, that is what “democracy” looks like!

Tolerant Left Vandalizes Church in the Name of Tolerance

Share

Our tolerant leftist friends have brought their tolerance to all parts of the globe, by violence, if necessary.  For the latest example, take a look at latest example, via Speak Up…

A Portland, Oregon, campus of Mars Hill Church was recently vandalized by a group of homosexual activists.  The group smashed nine windows with rocks, including two stained glass windows that were over 100 years old.  Normally vandalism like this is anonymous, but this vandalism was meant to send a message.  The vandals actually sent an email to a local TV station claiming responsibility for the vandalism and stating that they vandalized the church because “Mars Hill is notoriously anti-gay and anti-woman.”  But there is nothing unusual about Mars Hill’s view on homosexual behavior and the church even holds itself out as simply believing what the Bible says about homosexuality.

So, let’s make sure that we make this clear.  The left is tolerant, and so tolerant, that they will destroy the property of anyone that disagrees with them.  After all, it’s the tolerant thing to do!

Occupod vs. Hannity

Share


If you want some moonbattery on display, take a look at this…

That was simply incredible. Predictable, but incredible. It has all the hallmarks of a Communist regime. For one, when the system fails, it’s always someone else’s fault. Just like when the collective farms in the Soviet Union turned the leading exporter of grain into a a nation in famine. Instead of acknowledging that the system didn’t work, the Soviets blamed others, particularly Americans, and then killed a bunch of innocent citizens for “collaborating” with the non-existent agents of imperialism. Whenever something goes wrong in a Communist state, it is someone else’s fault. The rapists were not occupiers. The vandals are not occupiers. The drug dealers and child molesters are not occupiers. Even though all of those people stayed in the camps, engaged in protests, and sometimes even were in “official” positions within the movement, it was always someone else, like DHS, or the NYPD, or even Breitbart!

We see this too in the Obama administration. Bush is to blame for everything, even for the failure of Obama’s polices.  And, when evidence is cited for the failures, that too, is explained away.

This is the face of Occupy.   This is the person that will take your freedom, and your property.  And, with history as a teacher-they will also kill many people to achieve their totalitarian “paradise.”

More Occupy Violence: Seattle Vandalized

Share

Their numbers are low, but their damage total is large.  That seems to be the proper way to encapsulate the Occupy Movement.  By most reports, their May Day Activities were rather small, but possessing a destructive potential beyond their numbers.  Here is what happened in Seattle…

Of course, this really didn’t happen, because Occupy is peaceful.  And, if it did happen, it was someone else’s fault!

May Day Destruction Falls Short of Prediction, Seems Occupods Incapable of Mass Destruction They Promised

Share

Yeah, they smashed some windows, and assaulted photographers, and probably spread some vermin, but the May Day antics appear to have not even lived up to last year’s destruction.  However, it appears to have not been for the lack of trying.  Here are some reports from around the country.

Occupy San Franfreako Get’s a Head Start:  Destruction Ensures

Because it’s always someone else’s fault…

Yes, these folks were with Occupy, but occupy is “peaceful.”  So, when the violence occurs, it’s always someone else.  Get it?

Local Business Owner “not the “F**king Man,” Fails to Realize That he’s Just Been Thrown Under the Bus

Er, sir.  It doesn’t matter if you are corporate, or large.  You make a profit, and in the eyes of the occupods, enslave your workers.  So, you will be targeted.  Welcome to the revolution!

Apparently, the Occupods Don’t Want People Taking Pictures of Their “Activism…

Remember that a hallmark of any totalitarian regime is the complete control of information…

Occupy Wall Street protesters attacked some photographers covering the May Day protests today in New York, trying to damage or seize their cameras. There are no reported injuries but one photographer was hit in the face, another got in a “tug-of-war” with a protester over her camera, and another had her camera smashed into her face by a protesters, according to those at the scene.

“The black bloc crowd has been making grabs for cameras,” C.S. Muncy, a freelance photographer on assignment for the Village Voice, told BuzzFeed. The “black bloc” is a group of protesters all dressed in black, wearing masks.

“I had a couple people make grabs for my gear,” Muncy said. “They just didn’t want their pictures taken.”

“One girl walks up to one of the photogs and nailed him right in the face,” Muncy said. “He popped her right back.” Muncy said the photographer was Lucas Jackson of Reuters.

And, once again, Occupy proves itself to be exactly what it is.  However, it is important to remember that these people are not occupods.  It’s always someone else’s fault, right?

Occupy Cleveland Cancels After their Spokesman, Among Others, Caught in Bomb Plot

Come one now, they were only trying to blow up a bridge!

Update on Mr. E’s Blogger post: FBI Arrests 5 for Plot to Blow Up Ohio Bridge

BREAKING:  cancels May Day event, say 5 bomb suspects were associated BUT NOT REPRESENTATIVE of group | bit.ly/JDj3Hb

Associated but not representative of the group?

Sure, and I have a bridge to sell you:

The Occupy Cleveland group confirmed it had an event called “May Day” scheduled for May 1 at the GE Lighting building in East Cleveland, but it said none of these suspects “were in no way representing or acting on behalf of Occupy Cleveland.”

One of those arrested, Brandon Baxter, was the Occupied Cleveland spokesperson

Brandon Baxter, one of the alleged plotters known to his associates as “Skabby,” served as a spokesman for Occupy Cleveland, telling the Cleveland Plain Dealer in early March that he felt “the powers that be, whoever they might be—on all levels of government and those who hold corporate power—are not listening, because not enough people are actually taking a stance.”

Posts on Occupy Cleveland’s Facebook page indicate that Baxter was involved in helping the organization organize and advertise events as recently as February 2012. Baxter and two of the other alleged co-conspirators — Joshua Stafford and Anthony Hayne — list Occupy Cleveland as their “Employer” on Facebook, where the three list one another as friends..

And, of course, they bombers are not occupods, even when they are the spokesman for Occupy.  It’d always someone else’s fault!

That’s just the beginning, kids.  There is a ton more.  I’ll get more up as I can compile it.

Just remember, no matter how many occupods are caught, the violence NEVER comes from occupy.  And, they haven’t jumped the shark, it’s a shiny unicorn.

May Day 2012: The Beginning

Share

If you have been a regular reader here, you know that we have been covering leftist violence for several years, and May Day has always been a lowlight.  A communist celebration of intimidation, thuggery, and vandalism.  Here are some examples from 2010…

And, just like OWS, there is vandalism and destruction at most every protest, but it is always someone else’s fault.

The Blaze also has some more current examples…

We’ve all seen violence behavior from the left wing.  That is nothing new, and we’ll continue to see it.  What we have to understand is the why of it.  They know that the vast majority of Americans will not accept a Communist state.   They know that as long as millions of people can take care of themselves, they will not gain control of the nation.  They also know that they cannot win a rational debate.  So, they resort to violence and destruction to force their views on others.  Like an older version of a temper tantrum, they will escalate their efforts until the larger society is worn down to the point of surrender.  They are not about freedom, democracy, or justice.  They are about hate, control, domination, and death.  History teaches us this-with numerous examples.

So, we know that there is violence planned for tomorrow.  It has been openly discussed.  The only difference between this year and prior ones is that there is more focus, and more useful idiots to engage in the efforts.  Consequently, I will be monitoring my usual sources over the next two days to see what violence did come off.  Of course, it will be someone else’s fault.

#Occupy Uses Feces and Urine as Protest Tools?

Share

Apparently, the answer to that question is yes.  No matter what one thinks or feels about the big banks, one thing is clear-that since the occupods don’t like them, no one can use them.  So what do they do?  They dump human waste into banks!   However, they forgot that banks have cameras.  Here is the footage, via The Blaze…

The Blaze also has some coverage…

Security cameras and witnesses were vital in helping police identify and arrest a suspect.

NBC-NY reports:

Police said Occupy Wall Street protesters were captured on surveillance video dragging a large receptacle of human urine and feces to an open-air plaza at the corner of Nassau and Cedar streets last Wednesday evening, just before 8 p.m.

They then poured the waste down a set of stairs there, police said.

Then, the story takes a rather sick turn…

In a bizarre twist to the story, it seems that Mr. Amos’ van was also used to haul food for the Occupiers. Also in the NY Post story:

Amos was in charge of bringing food for protesters at 60 Wall St. and his white van was caught crossing the Brooklyn Bridge several times.

Kindly categorize that under, “ick!”

OK what do we make of this, other than a juvenile act of vandalism?  It goes along with my conclusion in  yesterday’s post.  #occupy is a tiny fraction of 1% of the population, but they have endowed themselves with the authority to tell all 300,000,000 plus Americans where we can deposit our money.  Of course, they won’t stop there.  It’s the nature of any totalitarian movement to dictate to the people.  They’re simply performing as expected.

Linked at the Conservatory, and King Shamus.  Thanks!

Occupod Update: More Vandalism, and even a “Hate Crime”

Share

 

I seems that we can’t get through a week without more occupod violence.  There are two recent stories, and both strike  me as showing an ongoing escalation in their actions.  I’ll let you take a look, and decide for yourselves.

Occupy Portland Vandalizes Businesses

It seems that if #occupy doesn’t want something to exist, it has to go.  There isn’t a right to dissent, or even “agree to disagree.”  For yet another example of this, occupods in Portland took part in a larger action to close corporations, and while we can spend time theorizing the rationale for these actions, we could  just read their own reasoning.  The Left Wing Institute for Civil Discourse has more…

Via KATU, The first email read:

Communique for Night of 2/28

author: Some Of Those Responsible
About an hour and a half ago (around ten pm, Tuesday night) a group of anticapitalists rolled up on the US Bank at SE 39th and Main and smashed out its windows and ATMs.

This was done in preparation for February 29th’s Shut Down The Corporations Day. We chose a bank because banks have upheld the sanctity of capitalism, making it possible for a few people to accrue copious amounts of wealth. This was also for the role the banks have played in the current financial crisis and the level of environmental destruction they have supported. These banks are responsible for throwing poor and oppressed people the world over under the bus of extreme poverty and destitution. They did this all to keep the pockets of a few rich CEOs lined with extravagant bonuses, and it’s time we started taking from those pockets.

We also did this to remind #Occupy to keep its horizons open. Rather than resort to the gory analogy about cats, we prefer to say they’re more than one way to shut down a corporation. Parades through the city may be able to accomplish this task on occasion, but at the end of the day there’s really no replacement for a few dozen folks in masks with rocks. We don’t know whether this will be taken as solidarity or antagonism by the core of Occupy, but frankly that isn’t worth dwelling on for us. You said you wanted to help shut down corporations, and we helped to do that in our own way. Take it or leave it, we’re going to keep doing it.

Good night, Occupy, and good luck tomorrow.

The second email: (language warning):

F29 Eve Round Deux

author: w-w-w-window breaker

Sounds like our comrades had a joyous little romp around the US bank on 39th. At about 1:30 this morning, inspired by their shenanigans we high-tailed it over to 38th and Broadway where a Key Bank was just sitting there, all windows intact, just waiting to be fucked up. So we destroyed the windows and doors and ATM. Then we had some rocks left over so we fucked up the Starbucks across the street for old times’ sake.

Wherever capital chooses for its bunker, we will be there to attack it in the night.

For freedom, for equality, for anarchy.

Translated, “For freedom, for equality, for anarchy” means the following…

You are only free to agree with us, dissent is not an option.  You will all be equal: equally poor, equally disenfranchised, and equally miserable.  Anarchy is is a codeword for engaging in random violence to reinforce our tyranny.  

Isn’t it great that you’re not free to have a business?  Or that you’re not free to disagree with them?

Our second story is filled with what the occupods say about people that love freedom…HATE!

Occupy Oakland Participants Charged With Hate Crime

I know, there is apparently some irony in an alleged “hater” pointing out the actual practiced hate of the occupods, but such is the irony of the political left.  Sitting on the Edge of the Sandbox, Biting my Tongue, has more…

Charged with hate crime:

Three people identified by police as Occupy Oakland protesters were charged Friday with robbery and hate crimes for allegedly battering a woman and stealing her wallet on Feb. 22.

Oakland police said woman was walking in the 4000 block of Piedmont Avenue around 6 p.m. last Wednesday when she heard a small group of Occupy Oakland protesters “calling for a riot.”

“The victim, who has been a resident of the area for over 20 years, suggested to the protesters not to riot in her neighborhood,” police said in a written statement. “She was surrounded by three protesters and battered as they yelled vulgar epithets regarding their perception of her sexual orientation.”

The victim eventually broke away from the group and called police, according to the statement. Her wallet was taken during the confrontation.

One of the suspects was arrested that night, while the two others were arrested Wednesday at another Occupy Oakland protest, police said.

The Alameda County District Attorney on Friday charged 32-year-old Michael Davis, 23-year-old Nneka Crawford, and 24-year-old Randolph Wilkins with robbery and a hate crime, according to police.

In the statement, Oakland police said they prioritize hate crimes for immediate investigation because “a suspect who commits a hate crime aims not only to terrify or harm one individual but to threaten and terrorize the entire actual or perceived group of people to which the victim may belong.”

Well, we have assault, robbery, and hate.  Sounds like yet another microcosm of the left’s desired dictatorship.  Violence must be used to terrorize the population, they state the goal of having the government steal from others, and give to them, and they vilify and dehumanize their opposition.

Come to think about it, they’re only in trouble because they jumped the gun (so to speak).  Had they just waited to take power, their government could have killed the victim, said she brought it on herself (for being a capitalist, or worse, a “Zionist Jew”) and then took her money and property.  It’s a fine line sometimes, isn’t it?

Great Moments in Civil Discourse: Death Threats Against Koch Brothers OK!

Share

As we have chronicled with the “Great Moments in Civil Discourse” posts, regressives have a glaring double standard in which the the most innocent and inane comments made by Conservatives are filled with racism and “hate.”  On the other hand, regressives are apparently cleared to call for violent revolution, engage in thug tactics against men, women, and children, and make death threats.  For the latest example, we need to take a look at some interesting emails received by Koch industries, via Powerline.

On Thursday, Charles Koch authorized employees of Koch Industries to reveal the contents of “hundreds of e-mails that the Kochs and employees have received in the last year, some of them containing death threats.” The Wichita Eagle, Koch Industries’ home-town newspaper, reported:

Charles Koch, his brother and employees have in recent months been getting death threats, hundreds of obscenity-laced hate messages, and harassment from some far left-wing groups, Koch said on Thursday. …

“I hope you all DIE,” one e-mail, received last year, said. “You people are ruining our country, and all for $$$.” “Choose your expiration Date, Brothers…” said another. “The Koch brothers will DIE!!!!!” said another.

There were hundreds more — some from Wisconsin, where the Kochs were accused of aiding Gov. Scott Walker in his disputes against unions. Most of them were signed with what appear to be real names, many contained obscenities, and some Koch employees said these messages had made them nervous. …

There is more over at Powerline, so I’d encourage you to check it out.

When we look at the regressives, we see what they say and do.  At the same time, we know what the Tea Parties have said and done.  One side has thousands of arrests, millions of dollars in damages (and costs to municipalities), rapes, murders, drug overdoses, violence to people trying to record their activities (in public places), and a variety of other felonies and misdemeanors.  However, when one looks at the MSM coverage, you’d think that the peaceful Tea Parties were the second coming of National Socialism.  At the same time, the violent, anti-Semitic, and openly communist # Occupy movement is portrayed as a mainstream populist movement.

So, while this post will likely be derided as racist and hateful, the people threatening to kill the Koch brothers are given a pass, or perhaps even applauded.

Isn’t it great to live in a “post-reality” America?

#Occupy and Union Thugs Plans to Disrupt CPAC: Intimidation, Vandalism, and Violence to be Recorded?

Share

Isn’t it interesting that the movement that purports to be all about free speech and democracy tends to limit the free speech of others?  Well, it seems that #Occupy, and specifically, Occupy DC, plan to disrupt CPAC.  The most influential Conservative gathering in the US, CPAC attracts all of the big names in the Conservative world.  Presidential candidates, pundits, media, bloggers, and the like will descend on DC this week.  And, the Occupods will be there to greet them.  Here is more from the Washington Examiner…

Here is their write-up:

On February 9th through February 11th, a who’s who of dastardly politicians will be holding the Conservative Political Action Conference at the Marriot Wardman Park Hotel at 2660 Woodley Road, NW. Similar to the Alfalfa Club dinner, this event is another gathering of bigots, media mouthpieces, corrupt politicians, and their 1 percent elite puppet masters.

CPAC will parade and attempt to perpetuate the radical right wing’s imperialist ideologies with keynote speakers, movies and banquets dedicated to pursuing its racist, sexist, patriarchal and exploitative agenda.

Spectacles will include imperialist topics such as “From Fidel to Chavez: How Do We Stop the Resurgence of Socialism in Latin America?”, “Is the ‘Arab Spring’ Good or Bad for America?” and frequent bloviation on “American exceptionalism.” Openly racist discourses will be given on “The Failure of Multiculturalism: How the pursuit of diversity is weakening the American Identity” and “Islamic Law in America: How the Obama Justice Department Is Selling Us Out.” The conference will also glorify the role of money in politics in talks such as “How to Raise Money… the Easy Way,” “Citizens United Productions Hosts Blogger Briefing” and “Fundraising Secrets from the Billion $ Man.”

Our Mission: Occupy CPAC. Create as much non-violent resistance as possible, and make this a conference the attendees will never forget.

We will be joining in solidarity with the AFL-CIO, SEIU, National Nurses United, Metro Labor Council, OurDC, and more to make our voices heard in our increasingly top-down, money-corrupted democracy. We will have actions on Friday at noon and 5pm (for Scott Walker’s speech at the Reagan Banquet), and on Saturday we will meet at Malcolm X Park at 16th and Euclid at noon to march to the Marriott.

The list of corrupt, divisive speakers includes Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Mike Huckabee, Ann Coulter, Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann, John Boehner, Andrew Breitbart, Herman Cain, Grover Norquist, Jim DeMint, Rick Perry, Oliver North, Mitt Romney, Scott Walker, and more.

WE WANT YOUR PRESENCE. WE WANT YOUR ENTHUSIASM. WE WANT YOUR VOICE. TELL YOUR FRIENDS, YOUR FRIENDS’ FRIENDS, AND ANYONE WHO HAS EVER BEEN SUPPORTIVE OF REAL DEMOCRACY, EQUALITY AND POSITIVE DISCOURSE.

We are the 99%. We are unstoppable. Another world is possible.

John, from Verum Serum will be in attendance…

I’m attending the Conservative Political Action Conference in DC this week. It looks like I’m in for a show:

During a Thursday meeting at McPherson Square, until Saturday the epicenter of the protests, Occupiers brainstormed tactics for shutting down or disrupting the conference, according to a source who was present at the meeting.

The protesters suggested pulling fire alarms in the hotel where the conference will take place, screaming “fire” during conference activities, “glitter-bombing” participants, cutting electrical power, and barricading entrances to the hotel, according to the source, who requested anonymity.

“Speakers will be physically assaulted, not just verbally confronted,” the source told Scribe in an email. Two Occupiers, who the source also identified as members of the New Black Panther Party, “said they would be disappointed if they didn’t get arrested and planned to ‘make it count.’”

The source quoted another protester as saying, “Mitt [Romney] has Secret Service now, but [Newt] Gingrich and [Andrew] Breitbart don’t,” seemingly suggesting that the latter two would not be as heavily guarded.

Labor Union Report is noting that the union goons plan on having a presence as well.

Apparently, the unions plans to attempt to disrupt the conference with rats, puppets, and more:

WE’VE HEARD ENOUGH FROM THE 1%! Join the rally featuring tents, an inflatable fat cat, puppets, “candidate Walmart,” and more to LET THE VOICES OF THE 99% BE HEARD!

There is also a Facebook page for Occupy CPAC, posted by Change to Win staffer, Trina Tocco. It is important to note that Change to Win is the SEIU-led federation that broke away from the AFL-CIO in 2005—which means both union federations are involved in planning the attacks on CPAC.

I wonder if the occupods realize that any attacks on CPAC will be thoroughly recorded and posted?  And, it won’t matter a bit if the MSM won’t cover it.  Millions of people that read blogs, watch videos on YouTube, and view FOX will get to see multiple examples of union violence,  occupod vandalism, and basic moonbattery.  The attendees aren’t going to back down, and we’ll see some great footage of that as well.  The more both union thugs and occupods engage in their typical petulant child/intimidation tactics, the more it is recorded, and the more it is exposed.  It will fail, and we bloggers will have a wealth of source material.

In other words, just bring it.  We’ll only be stronger when the smoke clears.
