Skip to comments.New Occupy plot: Flash mobs. ĎAlternative forms of protestí put cities, cops at disadvantage
Posted on 11/20/2011 11:41:00 AM PST by tutstar
The Occupy movement is stepping up its confrontational tactics, plotting alternative forms of protest, including flash mobs that can be deployed nationwide.
Citing the success of last weeks so-called Day of Action protests, Take to the Square, one of Occupys main online planning forums, has devised an Alternative Day of Action to coincide with international Human Rights Day on Dec. 10.
Our freedom and dignity are under attack as a result of market dynamics and corrupt government institutions that are turning our local and global societies into increasingly unjust places, the site complains.
The Occupy forum calls for alternative forms of protest and new forms of action with a creative spirit.
Among the proposed actions: We can organize public forums, workshops and flash-mobs; we can promote the movement at local schools and neighborhoods or get in contact with humanitarian organizations working with the same goals.
A flash mob refers to a group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place to perform a collective act and then disperse.
While flash mobs have been organized in the past for entertainment purposes, such as for satire or live television shows, recently the concept has also been used for criminal intent.
Flash mobs of mostly teenagers have reportedly attacked random targets in Philadelphia, Maryland, Cleveland, Chicago, and Washington, D.C. Philadelphias recently reelected mayor, Michael Nutter, imposed strict curfews in response to the incidents.

Aaron just talked about the site and they are going to be setting up a forum so people can report incidents so that we can counter the movement by exposing them.

Important info for all of us!
Aaron Klein is predicting that soon we will have to include the Occupy movement as an official terrorist group.
Flash-bangs for flash-mobs.
Listen on 77 WABC
Another piece falls into place.
As I suspected, "Occupy" mobs are just dress rehearsals for blocking polling places in key GOP-leaning districts.
Why is it okay to say that criminal flash mobs are “mostly teenagers”, as this writer does, but it’s not okay to note that they are mostly members of certain minority groups????
It’s okay to describe their age, but no other characteristics about who is most likely to create a criminal flash mob.
The childish nature of these idiots is amazing.
Don’t hold your breath. If the Tea Party had just 1 of the mildest incidents that have taken place at these occupy groups the media would have ran coverage 24/7.
These people are talking abut molotov cocktails to Macy’s in NY on Black Friday. I hope the cops are prepared!! God help us America! We need you!
UNCIVIL is an understatement!
well, she ignored the ‘training sessions’ that have gone on for months in cities across America, so what makes anyone think she would intervene now, when the agenda she represents is being carried out on a grander scale?
The police need to give out many, many walnut shampoos.
Plus advance communication and planing raises all crimes to felonies and conspiracy, makes 'em RICO violations, and a Republican POTUS might list 'em as a terrorist organization.
On the negative side, Obama might impose martial law, and you know who the troops would be ordered to fire upon.
free podcast will be available later.! Wow, the 1% that ows is protesting are the ones that are supporting the movement.
took me a minute but I got it....
The worse their behavior becomes, the more normal people will not like them. Have at it guys, mob violence ! That’s the way - power to the people !
Many people so far have been naive and not understood or admitted to themselves that the hippy commie losers are in fact morons and treasonous.
If the commies increase their violence against innocent people to even higher levels than it has been so far, even those naive folks will develop a strong dislike of them.
Aaron Klein has been leading in exposing the movement. He has got to be in the top 5 ‘journalists’ for investigative reporting.
(Just in case.. it's a reference to Castro's Cuba and, increasingly, it ain't /s)
I believe so. He’s also met with Zuckerberg of Facebook. Did you know FB had put tracking cookies that were following people’s internet activity even when they had logged out of facebook?
I think that the American public is turning against the Occupy Wall Street movement.
Disruption of public access and commerce may be mistaken for vandalism and a threat to safety of some.
That's not flattering him much, since there are only about six.
I have been watching them. (UStream) So far, they have posted personal phone numbers for an author of an editorial against OWS and for a police officer who pepper sprayed them in CA. I saved the info.
I think your right.
Hey, tut, can you add me to a ping list? This is pretty interesting stuff. Thanks!!!
You’re correct. They may have some thoughts as to what the problems are in govt but they are pawns. I’m gonna have to listed to Aaron’s podcast as too many distractions since the show started. If the 1% are the ‘bad guys’ why are they funding the movement?
In old Russia there were 2 classes (probably the same now), is that where we’re headed. Maybe the 1% got a promised offer from the administration that they couldn’t turn down?
Thanks for the info!
It’s the last part of your comment that I’ve feared for a long time now.
If the Tea Party had just 1 of the mildest incidents...
Scuh an incident by the Tea Party does not even have to take place. The Far Left will make one up, and will repeat the lie enough times so that it will become truth. Like the time the Tea Party spat at members of the Congressional Black Caucus and called them the n word, Now why does that not show up on the tape........
Yes I think FB is really getting to intrusive. Linking you with all of your family members and who they are to you, along with all of your friends. Very invasive information along with all health sites, etc. All at their finger tips.
Stuff like this provides counterpoint to the BHO administration mantra that its the Republicans who are trying to hurt the economy.
I agree and it's clear the recent crackdown was recommended by the WH because it was starting to get embarrassing to Democrats. Last week's march was pretty much a bust.
There will probably be some more death rattles and the threat of violence is still there, but the direction is aimless and pretty much all but the hard core kooks have dropped by the wayside.
Random? No, usually stores which the mobsters rob. Though they have been used in violent attacks, as at the Wisconsin State Fair, to attack those of inconvenient pigmentation. No reason they couldn't be used to single individuals based on religion or presumed affluence.
Why aren’t Skeeters, the high-pitched whining devices only hearable by people under 30 being used on these freeloaders?
Even the biggest flash mobs pose no challenge for a modern machine gun squad.
Is anyone taking note at all that the title includes “mob,” what we’ve been saying all along?
Don’t know. Personally I’d use bear bangers or screames on them, but the pen fired ones are hard to get in the US. Anyone can hear them, including us old people, but they’d be effective. If you’re not familiar, you can find them on google or youtube. Probably not legal, urban area would certainly find a reason to object.
