Editor Protests Son's Arrest for 'Terror' Plot ["Nice Jewish boy" is anarchist]
Jewish Exponent ^ | Sept. 18, 2008 | Eric Fingerhut

Posted on 09/18/2008 1:36:23 PM PDT by Alouette

Mordecai Specktor says his 19-year-old son, Max, "has never been in a fight" and is "not a violent person."

"He's an anarchist," said Specktor, the publisher and editor of Minnesota's Jewish newspaper, the American Jewish World. He's also "a University of Minnesota student, Jewishly educated." His son, he said, is "a wonderful guy."

Max Specktor is also now branded a terrorist after his arrest earlier this month, along with seven others, on charges of planning to disrupt the Republican National Convention in St. Paul.

He's been charged with conspiring to riot "in furtherance of terrorism" and could face up to five years in jail and/or a $10,000 fine. He spent two days in jail and was released Sept. 3, after posting $10,000 bail.

More than 800 people were arrested during the convention for protesting, and media reports have said the police in Minneapolis and St. Paul are reviewing the law-enforcement tactics that were used.

The complaint from the Ramsey County Sheriff's Department alleges that the "RNC Welcoming Committee," which Max Specktor had been part of, discussed "kidnapping delegates, sabotaging the Xcel Center, blockading bridges into St. Paul" and "rioting against businesses," among other activities.

The department used an undercover investigator and "confidential reliable informants" in an investigation that began last summer.

The RNC Welcoming Committee Web site does not offer specifics on what the group was planning to do, but does say it wanted to "derail the purely ceremonial show of this repressive system and remake it with our own hands and according to our own visions."

As for his son being an anarchist, Specktor said that, while some might have negative images of that philosophy, they simply believe "that people should cooperate on a voluntary basis" and do not need a government as a facilitator.

That's true. It's also true that violence is violence.

The Rosenbergs were publicly educated and were early members of the Young Communist League.

I don't know of any evidence that they were given anything other than a militantly secular upbringing.

Anarchists are opposed to our Constitution form of government. They seek to overthrow our current form of government. That makes them seditious.

If any of these so called “anarchists” are planning to vote for Obama, that makes them DNC brownshirts. Democrats acting violently and in criminal ways. They can call it anarchy but when they vote Democrat, they are still beholden to the “system”.

Wasn’t there a Ted Bundy a few years back who was a serial killer?
He was very attractive and very charming.
While hw was awaiting execution, many reporters- especially women- got interviews with him. They couldn’t believe he had been a serial killer of women.

So the RNC Welcoming Committee was a bunch of anarchist thugs with the expressed intension of hijacking the GOP to "remake it with our own hands". Start your own party, black shirts.

Note to terrorist:
You can do things your own way and in your own fashion WHEN YOU PAY FOR THEM. You hve no right to destroy someone’s convention just because you don’t agree with their politics.
You are a terrorist. You need jail time, and to rethink your usefulness.

He is the new William Ayers.

Sounds like he may have come from the "Red Diaper Baby" wing of the hard left, like David Horowitz in the 60's. I wonder if David will have any insight into him.

I'm sorry but that's not true. It is not seditious to oppose our constitutional form of government and overthrowing our current government is the dream of many if not most FReepers.

It is the how and not the what that might make you seditious.

Alouette -— we must all suffer the renegades within our families and nations...

This boy and his family are clearly members of the proverbial “Lost Tribe” of Israel — which I have always maintained got lost because they were the Stupid Tribe...

For decades - recognizing that America has more than her fair share of this particular tribe - I have been trying to negotiate a swap with the righteous Jews of Israel or Eastern Europe, but they’re not interested...

“first they came for the Anarchists”. Actually this is historically correct. But Pastor Niemoellor was creating a modern Christian parable, not a self serving political statement like Mordechai what his name.

My sentiments exactly. I am always amazed at how people say how “nice, good, sweet” and etc. their kids are when they do really wicked or bad things. Reminds me of the serial killer or guy gone wacko’s neighbors who frequently will say, “but he was so nice...” “... and quiet”

“An Anarchist” a “wonderful guy” Sorry pal, and anachist is not a wonderful person. If my son was acting like that, I would call a duck a duck because I loved him. Then again, I would beat that retarded thinking out of him first. A parents duty is to train them up inthe way they should go, not sparing the rod.

Hilariously understated!

Would the Marin County Parenting Manual agree with your son’s additional lessons?

“overthrowing our current government is the dream of many if not most FReepers.”

On which data do you base your ‘hypothesis’?

From what little I know of the FReepers, they seem to often say they want the goobers in the gooberment to strictly observe the Constitution, not to overthrow the current government.

That his son “has never been in a fight” says something.

It is likely that had he sometime experienced physical repercussions to his simmering and unencumbered aggression, the aggression and accompanying narcissism might have been controllable.

Many of us now see this all the time - children made unstable through not having parameters and lacking a sense of the fundamentals of life - like getting punched back if you strike someone.

I have seen children strike their parents, who respond with gushing “love” - which further enrages this child who immediately sees what a fool and absolute coward his own parent is.

I heard an interview with the father of one of the women who was arrested and charged. Apparently he brought her up to be politically active in protest. These really are red diaper babies.

It is seditious to seek to overthrow the concepts of 3 branches of government with a separation of powers. Anarchists want to end the presidency. Not just of THIS president. Of ALL presidents.

Name the FReeepes you claim support doing that.

It is the what:

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/sedition

sedition

c.1375, “rebellion,” from O.Fr. sedicion, from L. seditionem (nom. seditio) “civil disorder, dissention,” lit. “a going apart, separation,” from se- “apart” (see secret) + itio “a going,” from pp. of ire “to go.” Meaning “conduct or language inciting to rebellion against a lawful government” is from 1838.

Online Etymology Dictionary, © 2001 Douglas Harper


sedition

noun
an illegal action inciting resistance to lawful authority and tending to cause the disruption or overthrow of the government

WordNet® 3.0, © 2006 by Princeton University.


Read up on anarchist-socialists. It isn’t NO government. It is a different FORM of government.

Hundreds of books here.

You’ll find a lot of the players’ names just reading through the catalog.

In Nazi Germany they first came for the terminally ill and mentally retarded. You know, the ones that the Left wants aborted today?

Then they came for the Gypsys.

THEN they came for people because of their politics.
