"Almost a year to the day before the Republican National Convention began, members of a self-described anarchist group gathered to talk about ways to disrupt it, including kidnapping delegates, sabotaging air vents at the Xcel Energy Center, blocking bridges and "capturing federal buildings" in Minneapolis and St. Paul."Don't you people see what this is? This is a direct affront to those of us on the Right, those of us who defend traditional values, Christianity, and free market politics.
What galls me is that community activists in the Twin Cities were quick to rush to the defense of the RNC Welcoming Committee, after St. Paul police stormed their local headquarters WITH a search warrant, confiscating materials that could be potentially used for violence.
Of course rather than wait until all the facts emerged, IDIOTS like Dave Thune, council member of Ward 2 in St. Paul, which just happens to be the area where the anarchists, and liberal sympathizers were arrested.
Naturally, idiots representing alternative media, like BeyondChron, are quick to state that because law enforcement staved off a threat from the aforementioned RNC Welcoming Committee, their first amendment rights were violated.
This sort of mentality is typical in the anti-Bush/anti-authority/leftist community: their rights have been usurped. Because the Bush administration tapped the phones of Muslims placing international calls to Pakistan, London, Madrid, and parts unknown, it's naturally an affront to our civil liberties. Of course, 1.) our country has not seen a successful terrorist attack since 9/11 thanks to those measures; 2.) those representing the Leftist/anti-Bush crowd are STILL free to speak out against the president and his administration.
Of course the real tragedy lies in the fact that is indeed the Left usurping our first amendment rights, whether it's an attempted reenactment of the Fairness Doctrine, the passage of HR 1592 in Congress (Bible as Hate speech law), the ultra-liberal San Francisco city government snooping through its citizens' garbage under the auspices of "recycling assurance," or the endless discrimination against Republicans on college campus.
Yet, thanks to our corrupt mainstream media, this stories aren't reported.
Can someone tell me how a group of thugs' rights were violated because they were forbidden to dump their "waste" on unsuspecting victims?
