Posted on 08/22/2012 5:16:18 PM PDT by jazusamo
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.

Apparently this was done in 1909.
One may hope the weather will insufficient to stop the convention, but sufficient to discourage the anarchists. A nice steady, cold rain to neutralize any fire or drug bombs and chill their ardor. Might provide their first baths in months. And it would also discourage the MSM from wanting to go out and cover them.
obviously they must be anarchists against both parties... yet only attacking the RNC
they could never be the occu-tards, commies, liberals, black panthers, or progressives...
naaaah... couldn’t be them.
quick... frisk that grandmother !!!
Ten bucks says that the violence is 20 times worse at the Republican Convention than anything seen at the Rat Convention.
I like the thought of that, maybe baths that last for 3 or 4 days.
Tampa can handle a Cat1 but the OWS tent camps are going to be a real mess, then after it all passes by, the heat and humidity will be tremendous. Welcome to the hayseed south kiddies!
BTW, you throw an acid filled “egg shell” at me and you will hate what comes out of my shells.
Indeed. Isaac will be in, done and gone in 48 hours as a minimal hurricane but serious rain dumper based on recent forecast. Those OWS losers will make full use of local shelters and leaves them ruined.
At least their tent cities will make Woodwork look like a report town.
Posting from mobile. Excuse rough prose
Maybe someone should tell the OWS Animals from NYC that FL has 100,000’s of CCW legally licensed individuals.
Those OWS Animals are from gunfree(?)Blumbergville and tend to forget about the rest of the real world.
The truth we may not name...
Well, we’ll see won’t we.
Don’t really know much more than that to so.
Well, we’ll see won’t we.
Don’t really know much more than that to say...
We don’t have nice steady cold rains in Tampa during August.
We have downpours of hot water that comes down so hard they’ll drown anyone in a tent. For storms like this one its not unusual to get 10 inches of rain a day. If its a serious storm they’ll warn of up to 20 inches of rain.
just today without a hurricane we had between 1 and 4 inches of rain depending on the location.
Last I saw it was around 890K and growing fast. Just one gun store in Jax has 5 locations and each has a CCW classroom that has room for 100 and are filled or almost filled each week.
Where the heck do you folks put all that water?
Back in the ocean. We’re only 10 feet or so above it forsuch of the state.
Yeah... Why fill them with anything? Just let them sit outside and ripen a bit... Less work, more damage.
With 10-20 inches you’ll see flooding. Eventually it all runs into the ocean or down into the acquifer.
I am praying with all my heart that he is wrong. But, I am old enough to be terribly afraid that he is close to right.
I am old, and do not care about myself, but I care about my adult children and my grandchildren.
I do not frighten easily, by the way, and love to poke fun at “scare-mongers”. Please pray with me that God will disrupt the plans of the wicked, and will help us return to morality.
That is all we have to do, and we do not need to force our views on others. We just have to have the courage to stand up for our own beliefs.
Why do they scream like scalded cats when we try to state our beliefs, when we are not telling them what choices to make - only the choices we make.
Why do they feel so strongly that we are not entitled to state our beliefs in the public square? Why do they find our beliefs so frightening that they have to shout us down, disparage us, insult us? They have the freedom in our country to state their beliefs, why can’t we state ours?
(sent to 2ndDV privately as well)
I want to see them soaking wet, with wind and rain spitting in their faces and putting out their fires.
“All the news agencies are referring to the bulletin but I haven’t found a link to it yet. “
This suggests that a one-page press release went out with the details, but the report itself may be classified.
So they let out what they wanted us to know.
“Meanwhile they are telling the normal
public to come and enjoy the event.”
One of the funniest posts ever.
False flag is right. Just calling them “anarchists” is false flag right off the bat.
I’m fully expecting the fake-anarchists to cause trouble. I’m a bit worried their allies the “jihadists” may try something too.
Pray. Prepare. They feed on weakness and run when we get our back up. And most of us, our backs are already up.
“Anarchists-jihadists could cause big problems.”
This is fear-porn from the government. They specialize in it.
Feedin’ it to the chickens!
