The Crashers: They came, they saw, they failed
Michelle Malkin ^ | April 15, 2010 | Michelle Malkin

Posted on 04/15/2010 8:26:22 PM PDT by Ron C.

You were ready for the Tea Party saboteurs. And boy, did they fail epically. Saul Alinsky would be ashamed.

Grass-roots activists smoked out the infiltrators — and tagged them immediately.

SNIP...

Michelle has some great picture on this thread. It is so nice to see that these fools are being quickly I.D.'d and sent packing!

I've gotta run for now. Will check back for comments in a couple of hours!

From a Cape Cod Friend.....

I was at the Cape Cod Tea Party this afternoon and happened to meet a man who was at the Boston Tea Party yesterday. He said he witnessed on incident that I thought you would find interesting. There was a protester who was swearing quite loudly and the Tea Party people standing near him were upset with him. When the protester saw the media camera turn his way because of all the noise he was making swearing, he turned to the Tea Party people and said, “You really should stop swearing.” Of course the camera caught his act.
How do you prepare for something like that?

**************************************************

I also heard that 2 infiltrators in Nazi uniforms showed up at the St. Louis Tea Party but were ‘encouraged to leave’ and did so.

Teams need to be ready to follow the media cameras around when they arrive - a spotter and a cameraman at minimum. Stay behind with a wider angle and a parabolic mike.

The clowns are waiting to play for the bigger media, not the cellphone video.

By their fruits ye shall know them. Some folks I know are pretty astute at picking up on ( spiritual) vibes.

None of them seem to even try to blend in. They carried signs you would see at any Leftist rally. And there numbers were quite small. Only 2 at the Olympia TEA Party.

The usual suspects however, the Paulbots and Larouchers made their normal appearance, but even they were buried by the true TEA Party patriots.

In my opinion, knowing human nature and how they are organized, word will spread fast among their rag-tag ranks that if they disrupt at such pro-America events, they will in fact be I.D.'d and then all national HELL will personally come down on them, at their residences and places of work. We even managed to get one suspended from work and he may well get fired now over this.

We didn't mess with THEM when they organized against Iraq or cause trouble at THEIR events.

These people clearly threw the first punches.

And now, vigilant Patriot Tea Partiers with cell phone cameras and the internet and ways of finding anybody, are going to FINISH the fight. Maybe now they will learn to just LEAVE...US....ALONE.

In Colorado Springs a large group of Tea Partiers surrounded some “infiltrators” and chanted “USA USA USA” and the idiots were drounded out and left.

Chanting “U S A” must have been like holding a cross up to a vampire to them.

Another thing is to travel in groups with folks you know and coordinate with other known groups, who do the same. Group leaders count heads among the true tea-partiers and identify the “outliers.” (The folks who show up but no one knows.) Engage these folks in friendly conversation. (Hi! I’m ... Nice to meet you! And who are you? What brought you out? ) If they play ball, probably a good egg. If not, watch your six!

Yep. Actually I also suggested that about a week ago. That the announcers from the podium clearly and loudly ask - in the pre-event phase as folks arrive - everyone in the crowd to turn to one another and greet each other and get to know a little bit about each other. Someone with a terse face who avoids contact could be outed pretty easily this way. The highly mobile, rapid response team with the “Not with Us!”, or “Not with Stupid”, or “Infiltrator here” signs are brilliant. There should be about one or two of these for every estimated 100 people showing up in the future, and all connected by mobile communications (ear head sets / transceivers) and go immediately to the scene of ANY distruptor. Eventually the enemy will just tire of this nonsense, and they will also know that the Mass Media cannot report anything negative on the Tea Party, that it is backfiring on them.

NYC: Had a battle royal with NYPD to get the lefties out.

When I first got there, I saw police ejecting a woman with a sign that said "How can you pull yourself up by your bootstraps if you have no boots?"

So when I saw a little crew of lefty attention whores enter the area where I was standing, I asked the cops to remove them. Their answer? "We ask them to leave, but if they refuse and they're not causing any trouble, we let them stay."

Wrong!

I went through four or five more cops, all giving me the same stock answer, before I was directed to the guy in the white shirt (lieutenant). The cops surrounding him wouldn't let me talk to him directly, but one volunteered to give him the message. I said, "The message is that you are abridging our free-speech rights by allowing the opposite point of view to appear at our demonstration."

So the cops go and surround these people, with cameras going all around them. The lefties had even brought their own cameraman. It took about 15 minutes but they finally marched the trespassers out of there, with everyone clapping and cheering. My guess is that someone called a higher-up, but maybe not.

The sign said "Abortion is health care, and health care is a right."

Ironically, the woman was wearing a red T-shirt that said "Education Lifeguard" on the back.

Later I saw what was probably a real infiltrator, not just an invading lefty. He had a large, very clear sign on a stick, facing the traffic, that said, "Defenestration, not Nationalization." I think he was banking on the fact that no one would know what "defenestration" meant. I asked him to put the sign down, as it was giving the demonstration a bad image. He was very clever. He said, "This refers to the Czech Republic." I said, "Jan Masaryk?" He said, "No, it happened in the seventeenth century. Some people were pushed out windows and fell in a pile of manure, so no one was hurt." ??????

I couldn't get him to put the sign down, and was reluctant to go back to the cops after being so aggressive about the pro-abort lefties. After a little while, I noticed that the sign was down, but I wonder how many people saw it and thought we were advocating assassination, or whether any media people took pictures of it.

The sad part of this is that no one else was confronting either the lefty group or the guy with sign. The crowd did not seem to be an Internet-type crowd--mostly radio people--so they were not that aware of the infiltration problem.

“Defenestration” is foreign enough to American politics to be viewed figuratively. Wouldn’t we all want to toss all the Rats and most of the Rinos out a window, figuratively speaking, and it would be fine to us if they landed on feather pillows as long as they stayed out. But the explanation was bizarre. These lefties haven’t even passed Infiltration 101.

Well, I see on Wikipedia that his story has a basis in history.

But more to the point, the media will certainly bother to check out what it means, if they saw the sign, and it does mean to throw someone out a window to their death, literally. There is no figurative meaning, really, like there is with "decapitate." It could conceivably be used in a clever way by an original writer, but that does not mean it has a figurative meaning.

I could just picture myself trying to explain all of this to the cops, so I gave up.

The lib media would doubtless gasp in horror, and a few million people would learn new word about a foreign revolutionary practice. If asked about it a week hence, half those people would say that means to kick the politicians down a flight of stairs or some such rot.

“To throw out a window” is a common American idiom for being rid of something undesirable without reference to the fate of what was thrown out the window (except that it does not return).

The same reason it would be hard to explain to the police (”look! this rabble rouser is using a fancy word for throwing politicians out of a window, and when it was done in other lands it actually was done with real windows in order to kill the politicians”) would be the reason why it wouldn’t make much of a dent in the public view. The more the media screamed, the stupider it would look.

I disagree. I have never heard or read it used that way. I think this guy was an infiltrator. I was there. I met him. He did not strike me as "one of us."

One day I bought a bottle of iced tea that was not vacuum-sealed. The top just twisted right off without a click. I brought it back to the store and tried to explain to the employee, whose English was minimal, why I was returning it. He kept saying, "Just put it back in the case and I'll give you your money back." That's sort of how I feel right now. Good night.

I’m sure his intent was malicious and he was better gone. I just think the subtleties of throwing rubbish or politicians out windows would be lost on the average US voter. Googling “out the window” (with quotes) claims over 300 million hits. Nite.

The left has been unopposed for so long that don’t know how to act when someone stands up to them—other than to try smearing and marginalizing them.

Everyone should be aware that the Marxist beast will strike out violently when thwarted. Violence is very much a part of the Marxist playbook. Case in point: The mugging of Jindal and his girl friend in New Orleans.

Yeah, we now know the NEW Dummie montra as stated by the Dummie-in-Chief. Taxes down, no new taxes.

There are plenty of people that don’t actually pay taxes thru the IRS. They will glom on to this mantra.

Even as the taxes kick in they will not feel the effects.
The new taxes on the producers will hit hard.

This is the Class warfare the Dummies are counting on saving their a$$es in November.

We had a very loud group march through the crowd at the Tea Party Express Boston Tea Party on the 14th. They came through shouting their "racist, sexist, anti-gay" chant. Seems they could get a new chant; that one is SO 1990s! The crowd started booking them, til the speaker on stage mentioned they had the right to free speech, then our crowd just started chanting "USA, USA", and drowned them out. ;o)

I heard from a Massachusetts MOM that someone egged the Tea Party Express bus. I have no idea if it was anyone from the loud group, but there were a whole bunch of Emerson College students mixed in the crowd, as well, since Emerson is just across the street from the Boston Common.

Kind of like the commonly used statement about throwing someone 'under the bus'.
