Organizers say 5,000-person march set for RNC first day - respect "diversity of tactics"
St. Petersburg - Tampa Bay Times ^ | August 23, 2012 | Richard Danielson

Posted on 08/23/2012 5:38:53 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

An alliance of more than 60 labor, peace, student, immigrant rights, gay and lesbian and other groups says it's ready for a 5,000-person march on the first day of the Republican National Convention.

"There will be nothing that will stop us from marching in the streets to demand good jobs, health care, affordable education, equality and peace and to oppose the party of legitimate rape," said Corey Uhl of the local chapter of Students for a Democratic Society.

...........Protesters are expected to come on buses from as far away as New York, Minnesota, Illinois and the state of Washington, organizers say. The crowd could include more than 700 college students. A member of Occupy Wall Street is expected to arrive with three busloads of demonstrators.

Organizers say the march will be peaceful and contend that any trouble is likely to be started by police.

Asked whether the march will try to prevent anyone from, for example, breaking windows or throwing rocks, march leader Jared Hamil said, "If they break the law, well, it's the law. Whatever the law says."

But Hamil declined to criticize groups that might not follow organizers' plans for a peaceful march with a permit from the city.

"I'm not here to say that anything is a problem," he said. That's because the coalition has adopted a brief set of guidelines, "The Tampa Bay Principles," that emphasize respect "for the diversity of tactics" and a commitment to keeping criticisms of other activists internal to the movement.

"If people choose to do a different type of tactic, we ask that they separate (themselves) by time and space," Hamil said. "What we're doing on Aug. 27 is a permitted peaceful march, and whatever other people decide to do will be done in a different place at a different time."....

July 2011 - Following Wisconsin protests:

Democrats Unveil the Weapon of the Future............."What all this amounts to is the baptism of fire of what I have taken to calling the "liberal superstructure." This superstructure is the vast constellation of advocacy groups, think tanks, single-issue outfits, unions, and various other flotsam constructed by the left over the past half-century or so. There are literally thousands of these groups, ranging from the ACLU and the Sierra Club with their hundreds of thousands of members to the local "Friends of the People's Venezuela" outfit which amounts to a retired feminism professor and her six cats. These organizations are ubiquitous, universal, and networked to a fare-thee- well. They are also liberalism's last great hope of controlling politics in the United States.

It's scarcely arguable that, in the political sense, liberalism is on the ropes. Obama spent their last nickel. They have lost the House and will lose the Senate, with little chance of regaining them in the near future. The same is true of the White House once the messiah gets the bum's rush come 2012. Liberalism is on the skids, its programs uniform failures, its ideology barren, its slogans worn out, its long hold on the independents being relentlessly pared down by the Tea Parties.

So what is a political movement to do, particularly one as fanatic and apocalyptic as this one? Well, if you have an alternate system made up of outside organizations not subject to governmental oversight, a system populated with self-selected fanatics and true believers, a system poised and ready to march, you can do what was done in Wisconsin. You can turn the superstructure loose to threaten the public peace, smash things up, abuse the electoral process, create a media spectacle, and pressure the state to do things your way. You can use nonpolitical organizations (in the electoral sense) to get a political result.

All the groups involved in the Wisconsin campaign were superstructure groups. The unions, the very core organizations of the superstructure, without which it's no more than a pack of vegetarians and aging hippies. The media, which serves as its propaganda arm. And the judiciary, which is broadly infiltrated by leftist partisans whose allegiance has been awarded to something other than the law."...........

It would seem to me that they are preaching to the choir. Better to take their march to hussen who is ruling the plantation.

I think the RNC needs to relocate, kept simple short and brief.

Hire a cruise ship for a day or so, would provide good security to a large extent.

That's exactly what I was thinking. So, they're marching in support of Mitt & Paul, right? Look at which party has kept the unemployment rate above 8% (actually much, much higher) for a record 42 straight months! Want jobs people, want to get America back to work? Oust the Marxist {expletive} currently occupying the White House.

Want health care? You've got it. Want affordable health care insurance? Well, job #1 then is to repeal obamacare. Every study that has come out since it "passed" (ie. was rammed through on questionable legal basis) has shown that it will cost more and healthcare will be worse under obamacare. You want to improve healthcare, reduce costs, help us get the government out of it - because lets face it people, when has adding government bureaucracy ever improved something and reduced costs? Ever?

Want equality and peace? Look around at who is really stirring up trouble. Who is out there, firing up tensions between groups based on race, gender, sexual orientation, etc. Who is intentionally blowing any and every little issue out of proportion and using it as leverage to divide us? Here's a hint, they call themselves "liberals" and "progressives" - it's just what they do as a tactic to gain power and control, over you!

"legitimate rape" - really people, you want to run with that meme? Why not run with Whoopie's "rape-rape" comment? Or "the private sector is doing fine" or "you didn't build that" or "never let a crisis go to waste" or any one of dozens of idiotic things hussein and his cohorts in crime have said. Everyone, everyone reading this has at some time said something they really wish they could take back. There was an apology for the "legitimate rape" comment - poor choice of words that didn't reflect the actual intent. The other gaffes by so-called "liberals" ??? Those were gaffes because they accidentally let slip through their real intent and it came out. There hasn't been a single apology for any of that {expletive}.

I was in Charlotte this past Monday. When I asked, “Are you ready for Charlotte to go into lockdown?” everyone I spoke to, from a fast food clerk to a Federal judge I know, said nothing & rolled their eyes. They are expecting real trouble, and difficulty getting around at the very least.

Only......historically, the worst protests, violence & destruction happen outside Democrat conventions, far more so than near Republican ones. Don’t know why.

"Rom 1:21-26

21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.

24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator — who is forever praised. Amen.

26 Because of this, God gave them over...

“Education is a Right”

Yes, and I have paid property taxes since May of 1966 for your right to attend K thru 12th grade & get an education on my dime.

I have no children.

Approximately 50% of my property taxes for all those years went to help pay for the schools you & your unwashed buddies have attended.

Since you are proving to me that the product of that investment is severely flawed, I would like to apply for MY MONEY to be RETURNED to me. 46 years of property taxes, often on more than property at a time, including my retired father’s property would be a nice retirement fund for me right now.

I would not hire any of the 4 of you shown in that photo. Not now—NOT EVER!!!

BTW- I managed to work & PAY every penny of those taxes without the benefit of a college degree.

It doesn't. Most of these guys are only in the protest to pick up chicks. They figure any female stupid enough to fall for the Protest signs and memes will be stupid enough to fall for their pick-up lines.

If they don't, they can always rape them in the tent after they fall asleep.

It isn't a one-time outburst like those things tend to be in Africa (well, West Africa is an exception, where civil wars burn on for years), but rather a premeditated assault on society with an end of enslavement in view, of substituting the new oligarchic vision on the (unwilling) citizens of the victim-republic.

Cicero wrote extensively about the techniques used by Caesar and Crassus and their revolutionary (tyrannical) party to undermine public confidence in the tribunals of justice, the elections, the magistrates personally when they opposed Caesar. One of Caesar's recent biographers makes the case for Caesar's exquisite control of the Mob (which was armed, by the way, containing many veterans and not a few gladiators in its ranks, all armed to the teeth) to create finely calibrated, modulated violence supportive of a particular political point, but restrained from going further and muddying the message.

Crassus was a plutocratic adventurer -- one would think, in early-modern terms, that he was a member of a party of bankers and nouveaux-riches, but he was not: He was much more comparable to George Soros, but without the ideological agenda, just a personal one. Caesar was one of his tools -- like Antony and Caelius were Caesar's tools -- until Caesar became first a peer, and then a successor, after Crassus's death at Carrhae. (Captured by the Parthians, he was executed by having molten gold poured down his throat.)

And for what it's worth, not one -- not one -- of these men survived the Roman Civil War. Only Caesar's nephew was left (and some of Antony's children), who in Cicero's time was still a bed-wetting boy.

SDS = Students for a “Democratic” Society... A communist recruiting group.

They were organized in 1962 in Sharon, Connecticut. Their founding charter and manifesto was "The Sharon Statement" -- a warning right there that they were self-important and, as the poem went, "They said they'd rule wisely / And they said they'd rule well, / But they said that they would rule."

Bill and Hillary Clinton were early, if not founding, members.

Sociologists took a look at those New Left groups and found that many but many of their members were "red-diaper" children of older radicals and Communists and fellow-travelers. As the saying goes, "The apple doesn't fall far from the tree." Bill Clinton interned as a teen for Arkansas senator Wm. Fulbright -- whom I always thought a Communist asset in the Senate.

Gosh, you're right -- the Sharon Statement was the counter.

The original SDS statement was the Port Huron (Michigan) Statement. Which was not their founding statement, since the Port Huron Statement was issued in 1962, and the SDS had been founded in 1960.
