Secret Service shuts down ‘fire Eric Holder’ protest
http://m.washingtonexaminer.com/secret-service-shuts-down-fire-eric-holder-protest/article/2501155 ^

Posted on 07/02/2012 9:55:13 AM PDT by TigerClaws

U.S. Secret Service officers shut down a student-led protest calling for President Obama to fire Attorney General Eric Holder this morning, according to a report from in front of the White House. After discovering a “suspicious package,” the Secret Service ended the protest. “Several agents seemed hostile to our march and seemed anxious for us to leave the area,” Maurice Lewis, a University of California student, told Campus Reform . “The discover[y of] the ‘unidentified package’ came just as the protest began gain traction.”

‘Suspicious package’ found? The government’s getting creative!

That's pretty sleazy, even for the Secret Service; a false-flag operation.

What next? These anti-Free-America clowns inj government must fear the population. Keep in mind they can’t arrest or kill everyone before justice comes to them. Of course, I mean justice under the rule of law.

They did this trick in Germany in the 1930s with the Reichstag.

“Packaging” will probably be the newest leftist tactic to shut down speech. Watch ‘suspicious packages’ being found at all sorts of protests and Tea Parties.

Our side needs to learn how to protest. Be sure you have a flask filled with tequila in it, and a cute woman in a short skirt handy, to distract them. All will be well...

Oh yeah.

Amazingly, there was NEVER a suspicious package “found” at a single one of the “occupy” protests/camps. Just a lot of theft, sexual assaults, drugs and public defecation.

Move along, nothing to see here.

Like Swatting, once someone starts the ball rolling, it will start happening all over. I’m sure we’ll see instructions on DU or KOS w/ in the week on how to make a ‘package’ look suspicious and remove all traces evidence where it came from (removing finger prints, wiping out all DNA, making sure there are no markings, etc). The instructions how to call the cops on a phone that can’t be traced to you.

It will probably be part of that new Anarchist Cookbook floating around on the net.

Most freeps are too new to know:

During the Monica Mess, at a Clinton event a group of protester freeps were confined by the SS in an area far away from his appearance, and they were behind a chain link fenced topped by razor wire.

There was lots of noise here about it, at the time.

The SS does have the authority to remove and isolate certain groups, if they see potential for a security situation, but the fence and the razor wire were a little much.

At the March for Freedom long ago there were also weird white vans with mirrored windows, and cameras rolling of the crowd, documenting everything —Drudge was there, and I think the average age attendants was 55 or 60 years of age.

I remember back in the day when I was slightly involved with the JDL, some “friend” asked if he could put his illegal hand gun in my closet for “safekeeping”. I refused, and hussled him out of my house. Unidentified package? Don’t be surprised if they start cropping up quite a lot.

“...The middle nazi is a dead ringer for Anderson Cooper...”

The middle “nazi” is Reinhardt Heydrich. He was head of the Gestapo and the sub organization within it , Kripo (Kriminal Polizei). He was a mass-murderer thug.

A Czech Resistance group blew his worthless ass away while he was riding in an open motorcar in 1942.

In a rage of retaliation, Hitler ordered the town, Lidice, I believe the name was, wiped off the map, and all the inhabitants murdered.

Heydrich was an asshole of the first magnitude. He got what he deserved.

Actually, he deserved worse...but they got him nonetheless.

Just business as usual for the SS - this is a past event:

My sophomore-year college roommate became a Secret Service agent. She resigned a few months ago.

The Secret Service being ordered to harass non-violent anti-Obama activists was the last straw for her.

They should have called themselves “Occupiers.” Then they would have been allowed to stay, been provided with food and water, and the media would have supported them. Oh, the hypocrisy of this administration is just so...transparent!
