Skip to comments.Ayers’s Soulmates Planned GOP Kidnappings: Police

The Pioneer Press reports that the Ramsey County, Minnesota, Sheriff's office investigated an anarchist group that was considering kidnapping delegates to the Republican Party's convention in St. Paul.
The would-be terrorists, who called themselves the "Republican National Convention Welcoming Committee," planned to shut down the convention. The group bears a striking resemblance to the Weathermen, a violent terrorist group founded by Barack Obama's unrepentant terrorist associate William Ayers.
According to the news report:
# The self-described anarchist group - whose main goal was to "crash" the Republican National Convention," according to its Web site - traveled to or communicated with affinity groups in 67 cities to recruit members and raise money.Not surprisingly, the communist National Lawyers Guild is representing many of the accused.
# Group members discussed the possibility of kidnapping delegates, blockading bridges, using liquid sprayers filled with urine or chemicals on police and throwing marbles to trip police and their horses.
# At an "action camp" held from July 31 to Aug. 3 in Lake Geneva, Minn., one member talked of concealing inside giant puppets "materials" that could be used on the street. Others discussed the need for Molotov cocktails, paint, caltrops (devices used to puncture tires), bricks and lockboxes for protesters to lock themselves together.
# Erik Oseland, one of the six group members arrested here, produced a video called "Video Map of the St. Paul Points of Interest." It included such major companies as Travelers Insurance and Qwest, hotels such as the Embassy Suites and the Crowne Plaza. Also included: the Pioneer Press building.
Incidentally, Amy Goodman, the far-left host of the independent news program "Democracy Now!," who, judging from her previous coverage of news events just might be sympathetic to the group, was arrested outside the convention. Goodman and her media outlet were profiled in "Inside the Disinformation Machine: A Look at the Left's New Media Operation," by Matthew Sheffield and Noel Sheppard, which appears in this month's Foundation Watch.
Sounds like the authorities had someone “inside” the group. I’m sure that will be in the NYT as a “Gasp!” item in the next few weeks.
Probably had a Wire on too.
Well it is more peaceful than John Kerry’s group which plotted to assassinate elected members of Congress to turn the tide on the Vietnam War.
Expect Jerry Rivers again to claim that the group was “set up” by an inside agent.
Not Ayres’ soulmates. Obama Democrats.
In Denver these cretins were out there, kept at a safe distance by the police. In Saint Paul they are allowed close enough to harass Republican delegates.
But the point is that these are Obama Democrats. There are no pro-McCain riots nor are there any pro-McCain rioters. No Obama delegate has to worry about being assaulted by Republican goons because there aren’t any.
In Obama’s America if you disagree with the Vision of the Annointed you can be sued, arrested, shouted down, or assaulted by screaming mobs. And he isn’t even president yet. He doesn’t yet control the Justice Department and the IRS. Just wait.
During counter-protests I’ve had some of the Lawyer’s Guild “deputized” helpers stand in the middle of our patriot groups with smarmy, snide grins, taking “notes”, ubiquitious camera hanging around the neck. Can’t say more without advocating violence ;)
Will the communist media tell the American public about this? I doubt it.
Am I the only one here who wants to go to Minneapolis and start cracking heads?
