Federal authorities are urging law enforcement agencies across the country to watch out for signs that extremists might be planning to wreak havoc at the upcoming political conventions -- by blocking roads, shutting down transit systems and even employing what were described as acid-filled eggs.
The warning came in a joint FBI-Department of Homeland Security bulletin issued Wednesday.
The bulletin specifically warned about a group of anarchists from New York City who could be planning to travel to the convention sites to disrupt the events by blockading bridges.
Anarchists "see both parties as the problem," so both conventions are prime targets for them, a federal law enforcement official told Fox News.
The Republican National Convention is set to open Monday in Tampa, Fla., and the Democratic National Convention gets underway a week later in Charlotte, N.C.
The joint bulletin, titled "Potential For Violent or Criminal Action By Anarchist Extremists During The 2012 National Political Conventions," says anarchist extremists likely don't have the capability to overcome heightened security measures set up by the conventions themselves. In addition, Tampa Police Chief Jane Castor said Tuesday that fences have been established around "some of the more attractive government targets."
Instead, extremists could target nearby infrastructure, including businesses and transit systems, according to Wednesday's bulletin.
The bulletin mentions possible violent tactics anarchist extremists could employ, including the use of molotov cocktails or acid-filled eggs.

But didn’t they just tell us it was those Tea Party types who were dangerous?
The two parts of this sentence do not fit together. demo'rats see the civil society as the problem, and thus are happy to have both republican AND their convention as target of their own operatives. I mean, come on now... "anarchists" vote 'Rat!
* * * This just in, beware White Fundamentalist Christian Tea Party members headed your direction * * *
Frankly, this is getting comical beyond belief.
Just Asses Department: “Now Lefties, go out and do this so we can blame it on the right people...” Wink, wink...
Yep, they’d sure like to connect the Tea Party but they’re gonna have a hard time with that:)
Eggs filled with LSD?
Absolutely!, and everyone including the Rats know it.
Farrrrr out, man! You’ll know when you’re tripping if Joe Biden starts making sense.
Hahaha, that’s what I was going to say.
Those turkey’s are so bat s*** crazy they don’t need LSD. :-)
Farm out, man.
The Charlotte cops are telling all of the news agencies to buy gas masks for their reporters. Some are even buying bullet proof vests. Meanwhile they are telling the normal
public to come and enjoy the event.
I can’t find the report itself. Anybody?
Really, there’s nothing wrong with democrats
a really big dose of pure LSD wouldn’t cure.
Just imagine them trying to talk to Joe Biden...
Not anarchists. Pro-DNC fascists.
They don't want to abolish government, they want to make sure you can't govern without them. They aren't against government, they want to make it impossible for anyone except their puppet-masters to function politically.
They call themselves "anarchists" because it has a catchier ring to it than "DNC thug" and "brownshirt nazis". But "anarchist" is precisely what they are not.
The previous convention saw this same thing. Repubs had to brave a gauntlet of screamers and spitters; the DNC had its "anarchists" safely down the street.
