They will have SEIU thugs. This will not be your usual yelling grey haired hippy leftists.
Make sure you have video cam and a direct quick line to the police.Defend yourself if physiclly attacked with a weapon. Try to avoid it and sucker your attacker in long enough for the police to take them.
Take a camera bump!
These drunks were there in the front row trying to stir things up and ended up being escorted away by State Troopers for their own good.
I had my camera with me that morning and took pictures and some video in case something happened. Nothing came of it other than some unpleasant verbal exchanges but I posted their pictures and my account here: Prevoious FR post, Comment #9
Take a camera with everyone and don't be afraid to "get in their face" with it
close-up pictures only, try not to actually hit them with it :)
The impostors will be vile, we don't want to let them harm our image, so as a result:
In order to not be viewed as hate mongering racist freaks, we will not appear to be angry.
Well, we are angry. Don't let these Alinsyites game you into appearing nice. Be pissed, stay pissed, and calmly dispose of the impostors as you see fit. When one of them freaks out, act as your gut tells you. You may want to call the cops. You may want to videotape. You may want to ask your neighbor to call the cops, tell the guy behind you to roll video, and grab the "impostor" by the balls and drag him to where the cops can deal with him more easily.
I got up right next to the faces, without look at them, and pointed at them and started LAUGHING, RIDICULING, SMILING, in a loud voice drowning THEM out, saying things like "what a joke!" "That's funny, you gotta be kidding" , "Oh realllly??? har har har! Tell us another one!", deep loud belly laughs, and continuing to make fun of them. Made fun of every single thing that came out of their mouth. The departing crowd at first look confused as they could not figure it out. Staring at the scumbags, then at me, and back at the scumbags, and then back at me, confused looking. When this protest started, they initially had been met with angry, red conservative faces, almost all of them to a person, a few, mostly the women, looking down and just shaking their heads. But after about two minutes of this ridicule and not directly attacking (directly trying to counter or threaten), these leftists' chants got weaker and weaker and less assured, they looked TOTALLY puzzled at me, their faces became somewhat noticebly upset (and they had been smiling ear to ear when they earlier had been getting precisely the response they wanted from the crowd which was middle fingers, thumbs down, jeering, and some possibly jockeying to assault them), and they eventually furled up their offensive signs and left with heads down and nervous, forced grins, when the rest of the crowd started LAUGHING at them, too. They were laughed right out into the parking lot.
This was about 15 years ago. There are tactics that work to disarm these types. I like the "infiltrator" sign as well, with the arrow. Brilliant.
We’re going to the Tea Party Express III rally in Rocket City USA (Huntsville AL) later this afternoon. It will be me, husband and our two kids age 16 and 12. I hope there won’t be any trouble.
If you think they are the enemy take pictures of them over and over. They will expose themselves during the picture taking. They will be easy to spot. Their signs will be stupid or they will be printed by a printer.
As Tea Party activists and demonstrators, becoming more organized, visible, and “troublesome” to the current administration and Congress, we are naturally going to be vulnerable to a coordinated smear campaign orchestrated by supporters of Obama and the Democrats, and facilitated by the media. We need to think strategically, and then implement a set of tactics based on that.
On the strategic side, here are a few thoughts:
1) The mainstream media will run with anything negative, regardless of the actual evidence or responsibility. They should be called out publicly and visibly for their errors. We should use every available channel of alternate media to empahsize our non-violent intentions and racial-neutral positions.
2) We should take measures to identify individuals locally who are antagonistic to our cause, so that their presence at events is known. A database, accesible to organizers, could be maintained legally for this purpose.
3) It’s been said before, but keeping sufficient video and pictoral records of the events and actions to deflect criticism and charges of racial bias and violence, and is imperative to support 1 and 2 above.
4) The movement should not fear public gatherings, demonstrations and protests, but should become more mobile and fast reacting. This should allow trusted members in a network to gather quickly in sufficient numbers, with little time for opposition to react.
5) It goes without saying, but leaders and organizers should insure that events are always to be arranged with peaceful, non-violent intentions; that any type of weapon is discouraged; that members should never take any violent action if contronted by opposition, and should in fact avoid even verbal confrontation with anyone except those who are the target of the protest, such as an elected official. To this end, events should always have a small group of people whose purpose is to diffuse any confrontations that get out-of-line.
At the Rally that you organized through Free Republic on Feb 27, 2009 Mr. Meckler was there.
He had nothing to do with organizing it and no influence of his group (that takes credit for EVERY Tea Party across the country on that day) inspired you or FR to initiate that tea party.
But from an article dated March 18th of this year lo and behold he himself is an "imposter" himself posing as the leader of the Tea Party Movement along with Jenny Beth Martin.
Here is a quote from Meckler from the above mentioned linked article:
Everyone should attend the tax day teaparty in Sacto that wants to go, because no matter how hard the Mecklers and Martins of this world try to take credit for tea parties and try to be the self proclaimed leaders, it's everyone that supports and shows up at tea parties that are the leaders.Don't give them any money.
Mark Meckler, 48, a lawyer in Sacramento and independent who was a Republican until eight years ago, threw a party on February 27 thinking he would have six attendees. Instead, 150 people showed up.
"That inspired me to keep going," he said.
They will solicit for it but are not worthy of support IMO
When you find them get the crowd to chant - NO BLACK SHIRTS! NO BLACK SHIRTS!
You can probably bet money that the Communists will be sending agent provocateurs to discredit the Tea Parties, ESPECIALLY the one on the 15th. To all who attend, BE ON YOUR GUARD. If anyone starts an incident, whether you can stop them quickly or not, make SURE to get them on camera enough to identify them later. Our message to the Commies needs to be, “go ahead and try to discredit us, WE WILL EXPOSE WHO YOU REALLY ARE.” If we can take down “the Dan”, we can out some lefty infiltrators.

Check THIS out too.
I suggest many groups of documented trusted participants that are thoroughly confirmed as authentic armed with some very good video recorders.
Remember these impostors want anonymity as they want to be the burr under the saddle so to speak at a lot of events.
They will follow the tea party like a pack of hungry mongrels.
And it might even help to put their mug shots on posters.
"Is Obama a 'TEA BAGGER'?"
"Obama is a 'Birther'!"
Two things I’d urge you have...
1. A metal LOUD whistle that can call authorities to your location.
2. (Women) a can of wasp and hornet spray if you are attacked.
This is why I don’t go to TEA Parties. The one I went to was infiltrated. I could tell as soon as I got there. The RonPaul crowd were the most obvious, but there were others.
One of the tactics they used a few years back (here in DC) was to come up to you as if they were a reporter and wanted to ask you a question. They’d even have a camera person with them. But, then they’d get in your face and start to ask you some stupid liberal questions. They’d keep at you hoping you’d say something threatening. Or get enraged to “show” on their website how hostile the right are.
Just keep saying NO! to them.
