HEADS UP CPAC 2012 - Occupiers and Unions to Protest There

Posted on 02/06/2012 1:54:24 PM PST by trooprally

HEADS UP CPAC 2012 - Occupiers and Unions to Protest There

Keep your powder dry at CPAC this week and be ready. From past experience, when the anarchists know there will be push back, they change their plans.

In Oakland this past week the cowardly occupiers “occupied” places where they knew the police were not going to be around. Of course the police finally caught up to them and arrested 400.

If anyone has a good contact with the Metro police, you might give them a heads up. And let the Marriott and Omni hotels know that they may have unwanted people floating around making trouble. It is bad enough the paulbots are around, now we have these idiots.

From Twitter and with links:

You'd be wise to keep a cool head if you're going to CPAC. From the D.C. AFL-CIO:

Metropolitan Washington Council, AFL-CIO)With workshops like “Return of Big Labor: What Can We Learn from Wisconsin & Ohio,” and “Taking back Wall Street: The Tea Party vs. Occupy Wall Street,” the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) descends on the nation’s capital February 9-11 and local labor activists are planning a DC lesson to ensure that the voice of the 99% are heard at this elite conservative gathering. Actions are currently being planned for noontime and after work on Friday, February 10. Featured speakers at CPAC include Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, and presidential candidates Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, and Rick Santorum.

You may remember what the union-aided Occupiers managed to do at the D.C. conference center in November. When conservatives staged a conference there, they banged on the windows, physically harmed at least one old woman, blocked local traffic, and used children as human shields. Much of the action was caught on tape.

The AFL-CIO is planning a disruption of some sort at noon Friday and another at 5 p.m.

Here are some details about the event that AFL-CIO plans for noon: Where Marriott Wardman Park Hotel (2600 Woodley Rd at Connecticut Ave NW) When Feb 10 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm What do Wisconsin Governor SCOTT WALKER, presidential candidates MITT ROMNEY, NEWT GINGRICH, RICK SANTORUM and House Budget Committee Chair PAUL RYAN have in common?

They all represent the greed of the wealthy 1% and they’ll all be at the 2012 Conservative Political Action Conference.

WE’VE HEARD ENOUGH FROM THE 1%! Join the rally featuring tents, an inflatable fat cat, puppets, “candidate Walmart,” and more to LET THE VOICES OF THE 99% BE HEARD!

Friday, February 10, at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel (2600 Woodley Rd at Connecticut Ave NW), by the Woodley Park Metro Station

Coordinated by the Metro Washington Council AFL-CIO

Heads up to attendees particularly when OUTSIDE the hotel—these Occupy types in particular are dangerous thugs. Unfortunately, the DC police HAVE NOT been doing their usual good job of protecting the law abiding public from them!

I’d suggest walking in groups and hiding your CPAC blue canvas bags with your conference materials. Be sure you registration name tags AREN’T visible!

I might just stop by. It's not far from where I live. Let some of these little occupy punks start something with me and I will be more than happy to provide them with a long overdo lesson in common courtesy and consideration for others.

It will be a lesson they will remember for a long time.

Perry speaks at CPAC on February 9th.....

WASHINGTON, DC – The American Conservative Union (ACU) today announced former Presidential candidate and Texas Governor Rick Perry will address CPAC 2012 – the 39th annual Conservative Political Action Conference. America’s largest gathering of conservative leaders and activists will be held Thursday, February 9 – Saturday, February 11, 2012, in Washington, DC. The ACU today also published online the full CPAC 2012 Agenda, now available at www.cpac.org.

“Through an agenda built on tax and spending cuts and pro-growth policies, Governor Rick Perry has made Texas a leader in job creation and economic development while serving as a national voice for preserving states’ rights. We are honored to host Governor Perry at CPAC 2012,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “

CPAC has lost something, not sure what.
But is still a place to be see by some politicians and media people.

My sweetheart and I will be there Thursday morning to hear Governor Perry. We also will be attending all three days of CPAC.

We have friends who are concerned for us because we are elderly, but I told them not to worry. My sweetheart served in Nam and we are NOT going to let a bunch of America hateing idiots keep us from joining true patriots (like our Allen West) at CPAC. Looking forward to it, and we will do our best to be prepared for anything. Camera ready too.

But I am getting tired of hiding or backing down like the Komen Foundation did. Just walk in groups and have your cameras ready. Citizen arrest sounds good.

Last year I was close to Ann Coulter when she stated: "Chris Christy must run for President because if Mitt Romney is our nominee, Obama will have four more years." I will not bother seeing Ann Coulter speak this year. Will go have a cig break instead! :)

Glad to know you will be taking them some of our nice weather. We are waiting for some rain to pass and then back to 78-80 degree days again.

I hope you are taking them at least the 70 or more degrees of the past week! LOL

Have fun all and we will be watching for your reports.

I was checking the schedule yesterday. I’m wondering if some, especially FReepers, won’t bother to attend any events in which Ann participates. Here are the events I found in which Ann will be participating:

Thurs - 11 a.m.: Fire From the Heartland: The Awakening of the Conservative Woman – CPAC Theater
Starring: The Honorable Michele Bachmann (R-MN), Ann Coulter, and an all-star cast.
Live introduction by Director Stephen Bannon and cast member Sonnie Johnson

Fri - 11:50 a.m.: Ann Coulter, Best-Selling Author, Legal Correspondent for Human Events – Marriott Ballroom

Fri - 12:30: Demonic: How the Liberal Mob is Endangering America – Conservative Book Nook
Book signing with Author Ann Coulter
Open to all CPAC attendees in Exhibit Hall B

Romney’s speech is Fri at 12:55 - looks like Ann may be signing books and miss the Mittster’s speach.

See my post#28. I did have respect for Coulter, but her complete flip-flop concerning Mitt Romney makes me really question her agenda!

Like I said, when she is speaking it will be a good break time for me!

I thought one could choose the day for a one day ticket, but I understand why they would make it for Saturday.

If one has a safe minute to talk with obnoxious radical protesters, one mean but fun trick would be to skip politics altogether and hit them on existential challenges. One could say “you know you are all going to die someday? I guess since most of you are atheists, that means turn out the lights, it’s over forever. Kind of freaky and disturbing, don’t you think? And you might be remembered a few years after you are dead, but that’s really about it.”

Conservatives tend to believe in Heaven or derive enough happiness from family and friends that they can enjoy their moment in the sunlight.

Radicals have no divine assurance, tend to have few friends they really trust, and bad relationships with their families. I figure if they are going to make me feel uncomfortable, I will make them uncomfortable.

I’m not saying they would stop protesting. But rest assured it very well might ruin their day.

Thanks for the info. CSpan showed this. I guess they have a lot of air to fill. Shame they don’t cover Tea Party events.

I and others have made calls to CPAC, Metro police, and hotels but only got recordings. Messages were left but no call backs. Not much to do now but see what happens.

I saw Mittens get “sparkle bombed” the other day. If they can get that close to him, and he apparently now has a Secret Service detail, they can get in. Just like terrorists, no stopping them, they have surprise on their side.

Someone tried that last night on him, and the Secret Service was on the guy like white on rice. I don’t know why all these guys don’t have it. I might not care for Romney or his positions, but the thought that there are people out there willing to do this crap on a Pres candidate is pretty frightening.
