The Battle of Trafalger Square [Anarchy in the UK]
Daily Mail ^ | March 26, 2011 | Daily Mail

Police struggle to control hard-core anarchist rioters after 500,000-strong London march against government cuts ends in violence

Extremists brought violent chaos to Central London yesterday after hijacking the much-heralded trade union protest against public spending cuts. Trouble continued to flare late into the night as hundreds of people attempted to hijack yesterday's massive anti government cuts demonstration. Riot police fought activists in Trafalgar Square as violent protesters threatened to overshadow the TUC rally in Hyde Park which had earlier passed off peacefully. A Metropolitan Police spokesman said between 200 and 300 people had gathered at the landmark location late yesterday evening.

Anarchists and unions have long been “closet” allies.

Important detail, just in case anyone is missing it:

The government is trying to spend less. The government is trying to get smaller.
Who is really upset by that?
Anarchists.

What are Anarchists? Traditionally, Anarchists are people who believe government shoudl disappear; do nothing; leave the people alone; cease to exist.

Are these anarchsts in the UK?
No.
These are communist revolutionaries, operating under another name.

We have them here as well. They call themselves Progressives on this side of the water.

This is what happens when students don’t have to work to go to school and the police don’t use their guns on the criminals rioting the way they are. What is so unusual is that the rioters are literally attacking the posh hotels and shops, not just staying in some area around campus. I really cannot fathom this, I really cannot; the idiots are going to destroy their tourist industry.

Good point! Wouldn’t REAL anarchists be applauding the shrinking of government (even if it had negatives to it)?

Many, not some. These are professional rioters who show up in places like Seattle and Vancouver and London and Paris. Coming to a city near US soon, if Barry the Bastard’s henchghouls have their way.

I would agree. I believe that in a short time, we shall see riots like this here in the US. The police in the US would not do what was necessary, but an armed citizenry could and should.

And if the police were stupid enough to intervene against the citizens exerting crowd control, then I think things would get really ugly.

I noticed that many of the signs that were being held referenced the group UNISON. After looking them up, they seem to be tied into the SEIU group. No surprise.

My guess is there are some agent provocateurs getting the crowd ginned up even more.

I bet, in a few months that will come out.

The UK will use this to help their interest.

So, 200 to 300 punks and ruffians in hoodies and face masks can riot, break windows, throw trash cans at the London Police (in full riot turn out gear) for hours and turn the city square to a smoking ruin?

What ever happened to the policy the cops always were the toughest gang in town? PC cops have become insurance clerks who write up the after action assessment to send it to the claims and records office.

“Does private property mean nothing anymore over there”

Of course private property means nothing over there; this is a country that lets squatters move into people’s homes and take up full residence. Then of course council committees decide how homes are decorated, gardens are planted, etc.

The smaller Middle Eastern countries are. They know it’s a short distance from “anarchist” posturing to real debilitating anarchy, and the only thing that stands in the way is bodies.

Riiiiiiight. Because trade unionists would NEVER resort to violence and hooliganism.

Trafalgar square, eh? I wonder how many of those thugs even know who the guy up on the column is. If there are any Englishmen left over there, I hope they take to the streets with axe handles, cricket bats—whatever is closest to hand— and wade into those commie punks, shouting “Victory! Or Westminster Abbey!”

interesting little clip -

http://storify.com/jordimiquel/26march-london-against-government-cuts?awesm=sfy.co_3UU&&&&;

We have the weakest president I have know in my lifetime -I’m a great gramma - and he's the friendliest to Islam...

When America is considered weak, the enemies of civilization come streaming out of the gutters -

Someone shuts this president down - he is not a King, only a dictator wannabee. It's very possible neither our country nor the rest of the civilized world can survive another almost 2 years...

What would a few outgoing gunshots have done to their resolve? Using hi-cap magazines of course.....wait a second, this is the U.K., old chap. Their subjects are disarmed & helpless before such mobs.

Here in South Carolina the citizenry is armed to the teeth. Things tend to stay vewy vewy quiet.

I remember reading about how the Germans did not take that "stupid little paperhanger" Hitler serious. Even the state officials would placate him, for sure they had nothing to fear from a man with such obvious limitations. He did not even have a large group of followers. He did have one thing though, the ability to organize. While people in Germany went about their daily lives, this little "paper hanger" went about stirring up hatred and discontent. The Germans, and the world ignored him at their peril. When EVIL shows its face, it must be rebuked, cast away from us as one would throw out a trespasser in your bedroom.
