Hippie Named 'Hitler' Stabs Man During Utah Rainbow Family Bohemian Gathering: Cops
New York Daily News ^ | Meg Wagner

A hippie nicknamed ‘Hitler’ allegedly honked her car’s horn for half an hour in a Utah national forest, and then stabbed another camper when he asked her to stop. Hundreds of free spirits, bohemians and nudists were gathered in the park for the annual Rainbow Family jubilee.

So much for the summer of love.

A hippie named "Hitler" allegedly stabbed a man during a massive bohemian festival dedicated to peace and love. Leilani Novak-Garcia, known as "Hitler" among Rainbow Family hippies, was arrested Monday after police said she tried to kill a man at a Utah campsite, the Salt Lake Tribune reported.

The annual Rainbow Family gathering attracts thousands of free spirits, nudists and pacifists to national forests every summer, CBS explained. About 650 people gathered Monday in Utah's Uinta National Forest, ahead of the 2014 jubilee's main events scheduled for July 4.

About 1 a.m., Novak-Garcia started honking her car horn, police said. She continued for half an hour.

That's when another camper, 45-year-old Neil Sparling, asked the hippie to stop, KSL reported. Novak-Garcia refused.

So Sparling opened up the car's hood and tried to tamper with the fuses to disable the horn, police said.

Then Novak-Garcia allegedly stabbed the camper in his head and shoulder.

Park rangers found Sparling bleeding and took him to a hospital with serious injuries.

Police found Novak-Garcia hiding out at the campsite Monday night.

She was arrested on attempted murder charges and is being held on $20,000 bail.

The Rainbow Family has gathered every summer since 1972. Organizers select a different forest every year for the two-week event.

The gathering, described as a temporary hippie commune, is free to the public. It attracts between 10,000 and 20,000 people annually.

This group of “free spirits” had gathering in Colorado in the ‘70s. I hadn’t heard much about them in a long time.

I picked up a hitchhiker today who was headed for this place. I’d guess he was about mid-sixties or so, maybe older, and I think he was gay. Scrawny as a rail and quite intelligent (an engineer) but hopelessly screwed up. Said he was going “home.” Poor man but all too common.

A few years back, I read about a community being ravaged by a strain of dysentery that doctors hadn’t seen since the civil war, after these folks had one of their festivals.

These “peace loving, free spirits” can be deadly. The last time I heard anything about the “rainbows” was when one of them planted an axe in another guy’s head during an argument over a parking space at a camp ground. Killed the guy.

There are some interesting twists and turns to the Rainbow Family that can be useful for organizations like the Tea Party.

The Rainbow Family has a decentralized organization based on consensus. This is done intentionally, because hierarchical organizations, like government, are unable to “interface” with any organization that is not hierarchical.

In this case, government does not like the Rainbow Family, and wants to undermine and destroy it, or at least prevent it from having gatherings. Much like the Tea Party.

So the first thing the government wants to do is to “arrest or subvert the leadership” of the Rainbow family. But there are no leaders to arrest or threaten, and this makes government very frustrated.

Next, they want to seize their assets. But they have no group assets, no treasury, no bank accounts.

So next the government wants to disrupt their process. To prevent them assembling at their gathering, to keep people out.

To get around this problem, they start by giving several broad areas where they might have their gathering. Then as it gets closer to the appointed time, they narrow it down. Until the last day, and suddenly everybody knows where to go and they converge on that place before government can shut it down.

The Rainbow Family know that the government would use any excuse to prevent them from gathering in the future, so after their gathering ends, they are very careful to police up any litter or trash, and even go so far as to reseed land where the local plants were destroyed.

And they have even figured out that to prevent government from getting too frustrated, they must give them a human sacrifice. In this case, they ask for a volunteer to drive the garbage truck.

And volunteers know that they will be arrested for being “a leader”, and could get up to six months in jail, just so the government doesn’t feel so impotent.

Importantly, the Tea Party naturally uses similar techniques, which is terribly frustrating to the GOP-e and people like Karl Rove. If the Tea Party was just a typical hierarchical organization, by now they would have either destroyed it or compromised it, or absorbed it to use as one of their own.

Not if the Hippies are Socialists.

Read Jonah Goldberg’s “Liberal Fascists.”

The ideology and agenda of the NAZIs has been picked up almost to a letter by the left wing of the DNC.

The Rainbow tribe and its annual wilderness gathering have been a notorious haven for a whole slew of criminal fugitives. Most of the time, Forest Rangers and Police don’t dare go near these events out of fear for their lives.

Park rangers found Sparling bleeding and took him to a hospital with serious injuries.

Seems like not the smartest place to go if you want to get better ...

It also makes you wonder what happened. Did a large truck ram the hospital? Did the hospital have some sort of structural problem?

Sounds like a very diverse person.

I blame White men for this.
