DNC-ing with the Tasers: "Denver's Little GITMO ready to go!"
"End the war now!" "The whole world is watching!" "Days of Resistance!" Are we time-traveling back to 1968? No, it's 2008, but there's a group trying to RECREATE '68. They want the Democrats in Denver to enjoy the same rioting and mayhem Chicago experienced forty years ago. (Yours truly was a teenager in Chicago at the time--a conservative Republican teenager--and I remember the hippies and the Yippies and the flippies invading our fair city.)
Knowing this group's announced intentions, the city of Denver and the Democrat National Convention therefore are preparing for any trouble that may occur. That means extra security, plans to deal with rioters, places to put possible arrestees, etc. But the KOmmies see these preparations as forebodings of a police-state lockdown, as evidenced in this THREAD, "Holding pens and Tasers: Denver's Little GITMO ready to go!"
NEEDS MORE POPCORN! Forget cowbell, pass the popcorn! This Donnybrook in Denver should be sheer entertainment! We'll go from beach volleyball in Beijing to synchronized sit-ins (or sh*t-ins?) in Denver. So let's survey the KOnsternations of the KOmmies, in Bolshevik Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson, wanting to recreate '08--1908, the last time the Cubs won the World Series--is in the [brackets]:
Holding pens and Tasers . . .
[How do you hold pens and Tasers at the same time? Seems a little awkward to me.]
Denver's Little GITMO ready to go!
[Cue Ronnie and the Daytonas for a remake of "Little GTO."]
The Democrats and the Po-lice are ready for
"Barbed wire, stun-gun use mark DNC warehouse jail". . . . When the reports say "stun guns" they mean "tasers".
[DNC-ing with the Tasers.]
I hope this becomes an embarrassing spectacle for the Democratic Party wunderkind who thought this was a good idea. . . .
[Hey, I hope the WHOLE THING, inside and out, becomes an embarrassing spectacle for the Democrat Party! Pass the popcorn!]
What if they threw a convention and nobody came?
[Please come to Denver . . . and bring some feces to throw!]
someone might intentionally try to create the impression that this is being done by Howard Dean's DNC in order to stir up ill will in Left Blogistan.
["And we're going to South Dakota and Oregon and Denver and Left Blogistan! YEEEEAAARRRGGGHHH!!!!!"]
hmm might there be some people in Colorado with an interest in making Ds look bad?
[No, you guys are quite capable of looking bad all on your own.]
We saw a similar dynamic when the National Conferrence of Mayors held their Convention here in Madison in 2002, complete with the same stories about protesters planning to hurl bags of sh*t at cops.
I wouldn't put it past some Young Republicans to pretend to be "liberal" protesters in order to cause trouble and make us all look like raving loons.
[That's where the Guy Fawkes masks come in. . . .]
2000 DemCon in LA. I sensed that the biggest impetus to the Police Riot was the decision to deploy officers for 12 hour shifts in black riot gear on blacktop parking lots in the LA sun. The heat drove 'em batty.
[That explains what happened to Will Pitt with that black Midnight Cowboy outfit in the hot Texas sun.]
Why dosen't Obama do something about this? It's his party. Can't he call off the dogs or something?
[Throw the dogs under the bus!]
Don't taze me, Bro!!
[Go krazy, KOmmie!!]
They'll tase the sh*t out of you.
[You'll have nothing left to hurl.]
Lets us Dems move the Convention
[Hold it in Canada!]
Rs are probably going to dress up as Democrats and protest at their own convention.
[What would "dressing up as Democrats" look like? Nose rings? Tattoos? Purple hair?]
Dean's not behind it but he's not stepping up.
[The doctor is OUT.]
I remember John Kerry EXPRESSLY wished to deter protest back in 2004 - the antiwar crowd was plainly snubbed.
[John Kerry had their back.]
Is this to contain a Hillary Protest?
[The Million Menopause March.]
No. Anarchkids, Code pink, Me. I'm bringing a huge "STOP GOVERNMENT SPYING" banner. . . .
[STOP ANARCHKID SPYDERS!]
I love code pink.
[I like pina coladas.]
The Feds are playing the Denver coips for chumps, fabricating plpots to hurl bagsd of feces at officers. . . .
[They're just being fecetious.]
If the City wants a peraceful week providing a campsite is key.
[Get Cindy Sheehan to organize Camp Crazy.]
American Concentration Camps. This has been in the works for years.
[Do they ever let you into the LOWER LEVELS of the Wal-Marts? No? Ever wonder why? Think about it.]
no one who really cares about the D party or electing Obama president will try to re-create Chicago 68.
[They'll just do it anyway! Hee! Hee!]
I don't blame the powers that be for having a contingency plan in place.
[LOUSY FREEPER/FBI TROLL!]
Everyone who goes to Denver to speak their mind is going to face the hostility of the local business establishment and the wrath of the Democrat aparat for daring to be a skunk at their garden party. They are going there facing the real possibility of brutal arrests, hellish confinement, and even death. . . Anyone who gets involved in these protests, either as a participant or as a bystander, is a hero.
What I hope is that people have CAMERAS at the ready to take photos of the 'intigators' of ANY protests that might occur.
[I hear a certain female videographer is available these days.]
NO ARRESTS AT THE DNC.
[RECREATE '68 AT THE DNC.]
As I sit drinking my Starbucks I recall the comments that Violence Against Private Property is Not Violence, rather it is liberating the commons from the bourgoise.
[It's just Venti-ing one's frustration.]
if it turns into a clusterf*ck I will not be voting for Obama.
Stop that. Every change in the wind, people are going on about "not Voting for Obama". He has nothing to do with this, though it would be super-cool if he said "Let my people protest".
[Black Moses, coming down from the Baracky Mountain: "Let my people throw . . . feces!"]
The ranting about loss of freedom before a single person has even been arrested strikes me as chicken little-ish.
[Congratulations! You get today's Kewpie Doll for a brief moment of mental clarity.]
