Three men charged with conspiring to commit domestic terrorism during the NATO summit were plotting to attack President Obama's Chicago campaign headquarters, the Chicago mayor's home and police stations, authorities said Saturday.
A police investigation that began early this month revealed that the three suspects are "self-proclaimed anarchists" and members of the "Black Bloc" group who traveled together from Florida to Chicago to commit violence as a protest against the NATO summit, authorities said in a statement.
Let's see what American grown terrorism looks like these days.
That is a scary bunch of fellows. The Rasta wanna-be is particularly quiver inducing.
I suspect 6 mommies & daddies will be suspending some allowances this week.
I'm beginning to think the left is little more than the Culture Ministry of the New Boiled Mordor, since its white faction so cavalierly co-opts the cultures of other, Empire stomped, countries. In many respects, the left & right are Empire's mirror image lap dogs.
It is evident in this year's Mayan doomsday countdown where "spiritual" left wingers care more about long dead Mayan calenders than they do about actual living Mayan descendants. But it is most evident in the Western co-opting of "Karma." The Karmic wheel is, an actuality, a blind wheel. But most Westerners seem to prefer to view Karma through a Christianized prism where your own specific bad deeds will return to haunt you. The fact that this causality has absolutely nothing to do with the original idea doesn't seem to deter anyone in the least.
Evidently greedy consumerism is so ingrained in our DNA that we can't leave anything uneaten.
Really dude, you're not a fucking Rasta & the dreads just make you look pathetic.
& I don't care how much ganja you smoke, you will never ever ever be a black Jamaican.
But that doesn't matter very much does it? It all seems like a stuttering replay of R. Gordon Wasson's spiritual rape of Maria Sabina. In fact, it has been one long continuum of spiritual rape perpetrated by the sons of Empire.
In fact, the only thing Dread Lock Boy is missing is a good old fashioned Maria Sabina T-shirt.
The affected multiculturalism of the Left is as necessary to Empire as its tanks & bombs. While the latter decimates the material realm of indigenous peoples, the former pillages their spiritual realm, in many cases robbing indigenous people of their last remaining asset, their culture.
It's a sick & twisted, yet very successful little game. Of course, both the Left & the Right would vigorously insist that they are in opposition but that's just another facet of the game. In the end, the only real losers are the indigenous pawns, gobbled up & shat out by a Left/Right dichotomy that is as tired as it is fake.
Do I believe these 3 red, blue & white bread Yahoos are "terrorists?"
More like tag team partners in a rigged cage match.
But then, you knew that, didn't you?
After watching almost a year of various Occupy/Anti Something Or Other demonstrations by the Left, Empire's pantomime has become increasingly apparent. In these, the spoiled children of Western privilege periodically temper tantrum while the State spanks them with pepper spray & the occasional baton. The children cry "Fascist," the parents cry "Commie" but, magically, nothing ever really changes. The gears of Empire grind on while Empire's subjects maintain the illusion of "Change" & "Hope."
I did see one comment at boingboing that made me laugh:
By and large, the police and most of the protesters have been civil, upstanding citizens. The police have even been joking and chatting with protesters and helping a few of them that were suffering from dehydration in the 90 degree heat this weekend.
The "black bloc" however have been attempting to provoke the police all weekend. They've been throwing things at the cops (including bags of feces, not kidding) and generally just trying to use the civil protest as a cover to break the law.
The Chicago PD has been super restrained. They haven't used pepper spray, tear gas or excessive violence against a very small group of 100 people or so who have been trying to provoke them for 3 days straight.
The CPD has treated the protesters with the respect and civility they deserve. I am proud of what they've done and proud to live here.
While I've never been a lover of the police, I can't say that I hate them. I'm more of a believer in Sturgeon's Law: 99% of everything is shit.
This includes cops as well as their pseudo-revolutionary left wing foils.
I will say this though, as someone who has had more than his fair share of shit tossed at him by useless societal burdens, if I were a cop who got hit in the face with a bag of scat, someone would be spending a bit of time with active Tazer barbs embedded in his ball sack.
But I suppose that the purpose of a bag of shit in the face is to provoke a very violent & visceral response from the police that can be Vimeo-d & YouTube-d out the wazoo. Without police violence all you have is a bunch of unemployed dipshits marching in a circle looking simple. With police violence the illusion of opposition & choice can be maintained with a nicely pre-packed "Us" twittering on and on about the horrors of "Them," as Empire leaves us with our affected outrage and returns to business as usual.
Viva La Revolution!!
Yay Team America!!
