Antiwar Greens Given Orders To Use 'Any Means Necessary'
Insight Magazine ^ | 04/03/03 | Michelle Malkin

Posted on 04/09/2003 5:39:46 AM PDT by bedolido

As war unfolds, Iraqi sleeper cells and al-Qaeda operatives aren't the only threats we face on the domestic front. Homegrown environmental radicals declared their own fatwa on the United States this week. And they're not just talking about lighting tea candles while they sing Bob Dylan tunes in their Birkenstocks.

These anarchist menaces are deadly serious about undermining national security through physical and economic harm.

In a manifesto published recently across left-wing Internet sites, infamous eco-thug Craig Rosebraugh called on his antiwar troops to take "direct actions'' against U.S. military establishments, urban centers, corporations, government buildings and media outlets.

This is not an idle threat. Rosebraugh is the former spokesman for the Earth Liberation Front (ELF), a violent guerrilla group. Along with its militant ally, the Animal Liberation Front, ELF has claimed responsibility for a long string of arsons and vandalism, causing tens of millions of dollars worth of destruction involving crop experiments and test fields at university research centers in the Midwest, fur farms in the Pacific Northwest, meat vendors in the San Francisco Bay area and department stores on the East Coast. ELF also takes credit for arsons at a ski resort in Vail, Colo., inspiring four teens to torch housing developments in Long Island and, recently, firebombing sport utility vehicles at an auto dealership outside Erie, Pa.

Fed up with pansy peace-march efforts, Rosebraugh is urging radicals to ditch "pointless'' protests and wage outright acts of terror "using any means necessary.'' Already, in cities from Washington to San Francisco, antiwar obstructionists have disrupted traffic and commerce, tying up precious law-enforcement resources.

I am reprinting much of Rosebraugh's rallying cry to his America-hating leftists so you know exactly what we are up against:

"Attack the financial centers of the country. Using covert or black-block techniques ... physically shut down financial centers which regulate and assist the functioning of U.S. economy. This can be done in a variety of ways from massive property destruction, to online sabotage, to physical occupation of buildings."

"Large-scale urban rioting. With massive unrest and even state of emergencies declared in major cities across the country, the U.S. government will be forced to send U.S. troops into the domestic arena, thereby taking resources and political focus away from the war."

"Attack the media centers of the country. ... Using any means necessary, shut down the national networks of NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, etc. Not just occupations, but actually engage in strategies and tactics which knock the networks off the air."

"Spread the battle to the individuals responsible for the war and destruction of life - the very heads of government and U.S. corporations. No longer should these people be able to hide behind their occupations, living their lives in peace while they simultaneously slaughter countless people. Hit them in their personal lives, visit their homes and make them feel personally responsible for committing massive atrocities."

"Make it known publicly that this movement DOES NOT support U.S. troops as long as they are serving an unjust and horrifying political regime. Create an atmosphere lacking of support to assist U.S. troops at home and abroad in losing their morale and will to fight. If you are supporting the troops, you are supporting this war and the very U.S. government that is the primary terrorist regime in the international arena."

"Actively target U.S. military establishments within the United States. ... Use any means necessary to slow down the functioning of the murdering body."

"When engaging in the above six activities, strike hard and fast and retreat in anonymity. ... DO NOT GET CAUGHT. Do not get sent to jail. Stay alert, keep active and keep fighting. Remember, an action is only good (especially at this juncture in U.S. society) if it will serve to severely disrupt the political system of the country, its economy and the corporate interests that drive this society.''

These green saboteurs aim to destroy our livelihoods and our military in the name of "peace." Our government must treat them as enemy combatants, not misguided imbeciles, and use any means necessary to stop them in their terrorist tracks.

Why isn't there a movement to get some organized citizens to protect their own communities? Or is there?

At Vandenberg, officials have plainly said that any protesters crossing the fence will be shot. And none of that rubber bullet business either.

I say goad them into actually committing such an act, catch them, prove it, and then literally hang them. Mass gallows, used for the first time in the United States since the assassination of Lincoln. Let their pathetic followers "protest" that.

Two comments:

A full copy of this nutcase's "manifesto" would be instructive.
And why aren't we hunting down this cockroach the way we are Bin Laden? Where's his picture?

I'm not really familiar with Rosebaugh, but I guess it's a little like Charles Manson: don't commit the crimes yourself, get others to commit them for you. The difference is that Manson was an accessory to murder. Rosebaugh is [gag] exercising his right to free speech.

That is where freedom of speech ends and sedition begins. There should be a bounty on this slimebag's head. I can't believe that he hasn't had a serious "accident" yet.

Oh, wait; the good guys are in charge now and we don't do that stuff any more...

These alien freaks represented here deserve to be the first inhabitants in the FEMA concentration camps we all know do exist, ( excuse me while I adjust my tin foil cap); this action that they threatten is full anarchy and terrorism straight out of their own mouths!

The future of our country is directly in the crosshairs of this un-American group of outlaws. The forcing of their plans on America is making Martial Law and Police State tactics a forgone conclusion. The law abiding citizens of America should not be put in jeopardy as a result of society going mad and taking to the streets in protest. Law enforcement agencies are already strapped with bugetary restraints as it is and this outrage furthur hampers their ability to maintain peace and stability.

These out of control protesters must be removed from the mainstream if they refuse to comply with normal activity expected with society in general. The radical leftist mentality is unable to function in our Free Republic and deserves none of its benefits. Their ideas of governance is well represented here; all you democracy advocates should take note of the dramatic difference between a Constitutional Republic versus an Amoral democracy! The total failure of liberalism could not be more closely examined than in this sick, silly and pathetic bunch of losers. The acts of sedition or worse; Treason; they threatten, demands we as a civilized society meet them with equal or greater determination to defeat them as intellectuals on the debate field and insist they be rounded up and deposited in some deep dark dungeon to contemplate their sins against God and Country. By doing this seditious act they have thrown down the Gauntlet and now we will pick up the Mantle of Freedom and Liberty to defeat them. To HELL! with all of Ya's!

Why hasn't this scumbag been arrested already?

Because the ATF and the FBI have more important things to do, like laying seige to the property of some harmless low class white trash who lived way back up in the woods in Idaho, killing his wife, son, and dog. All because he didn't like black folks and Jews, and he sawed 1/2 inch off the barrel of shot gun. This dude was a menace to America on the same scale as Osama bin Laden. (sarcasm off)

Quite frankly, the reason, as I see it, that the Feds don't spend much time on the Watermelons is because they are generally rich folks kids, who have friends in high places.

What Craig Rosebraugh proposes is a threat to harm me, my neighbors and the people of this country. Homeland security should ASAP put this man behind bars for his traitorous urgings to break laws, maim, disrupt and perhaps kill all who stand in the way of this terrorist group of Americans. If you do nothing else this morning, copy and e-mail or fax this article to your elected as well as your Mayors and Governors. E-Mail it to your local newspapers and send onto you friends. This is the sort of madness that only a Ramsey Clark and others who so hate this country would come up with. They are all threats to the security of America; help stop them.

There's no reason why sane people should have their livelyhoods put in danger because of a few left wing communist extremists.
They don't know it, but they're supporting the 2nd ammendment more than they realize. The more domestic violence, the more people will scream to arm themselves.

My .30-06 and a few other goodies will protect me and mine; if necessary, other members of my community.

Of course, if I wave it around, I will be the one who is prosecuted.

So I wait. Unfortunately, response is the only option.
