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.
