What is notable here is not that a far-out fringe group of anarchists wanted to throw Molotov cocktails at buses bringing delegates into and out of the conventionas horrible as that is. What is notable is that many mainstream leftists have denounced Darby as a "snitch" and expressed sympathy for the terrorists, describing them as just wanting to create a better world.
That is the essence of the left's contempt for the governed right there. Their whole agenda is to use force to impose their supposed vision of the ideal world. So why not embrace Molotov cocktails as part of their arsenal?
I don’t know how to do the article quote in italics thingy, so... From the article: “Government didnt care about people, and he thought the botched response to Katrina proved it”.
I think it should read: “He believed the lying media reports about the Bush administration’s botched response to Katrina.”
I must be missing something.
If this were a plot aimed at the Dems, this would be the top story for weeks, and start a whole slew of "crackdowns on the rightwing militia movement" or something.
All kidding aside ("It's because it's against the RNC, of course..."), why is this being reported in this one place, in such a low-key fashion, and not all over the news?
Lefties and anarchists will wake up and see the error of their ways and come over to the Conservative side...and in doing so will inform on their former friends.
This is a weapon the Left does not have.
Because the Leftist agenda is a false reality (an immaturity, a weakness, even a mental deficiency), there is little or no chance that a healthy Conservative will become a Leftie.
I was at the convention. The Secret Service had created a binder of various routes to and from the Excel Center. The PA Hotel was about 10 miles from town. Upon leaving the center at night we never took a route where the buses would encounter an overpass. Every bus had a LEO for security. Most of the delegation didn’t pay attention but I asked our LEO all kinds of questions and he told me about this.
