It is hardly surprising “anarchists” (now synonymous in many instances with government agents provocateurs) are calling for “crashing” Tea Party events. Government ops masquerading as anti-government activists often attack the real folks who oppose the government. Governments have run such false flag operations since time immemorial.
Black bloc anarchists specialize in providing meaningless property damage for corporate media cameras. Is this the sort of behavior Tea Party activists can expect from anarchist counter-demonstrators on April 15 when the Tea Party movement plans to protest confiscatory taxation?**“On April 15th thousands of right-wingers will attend rallies in cities and towns across the United States,” writes the admin of Infoshop News. “The organizers of this nationwide day of protest call it a tea party. This tea party movement that emerged only a year ago is a coalition of conservatives, anti-Semites, fascists, libertarians, racists, constitutionalists, militia men, gun freaks, homophobes, Ron Paul supporters, Alex Jones conspiracy types and American flag wavers.” (Emphasis added.)
No, the Tea Party movement came into existence as the Boston Tea Party in December of 2008, not that we should expect a suspicious gaggle of “anarchists” to get the facts straight, especially if the facts do not fit in the narrow confines of their ideology.
“The Libertarian Party of Illinois got the idea to hold an April 15, 2009 anti-tax ‘Boston Tea Party’ in Chicago way back in December of 2008. On February 10, 2009 they started a Facebook page and began promoting the website throughout the Illinois media,” writes Donny Ferguson of the Libertarian National Committee. “Of course, for the Libertarian Party every day is a Tea Party. We’ve been the only consistently pro-taxpayer party since our founding over 30 years ago.”
Apparently the bizarro world of corporate media dominated political propaganda has infected the “anarchists” (at least the Infoshop variety) who now sound like Democrats. Once upon a time, anarchism was a political philosophy that stood in opposition to government.
The term anarchism derives from the Greek anarchos, meaning “without rulers.” But apparently the Infoshop strain of anarchist has deviated from the original definition — they now appear to be indistinguishable from state-loving “progressives” who also consider Libertarian Tea Party activists “anti-Semites, fascists, libertarians, racists, constitutionalists, militia men, gun freaks, homophobes, Ron Paul supporters, Alex Jones conspiracy types and American flag wavers.”
Note the pairing of “fascists” and “libertarians” in the above. Libertarians are the polar opposite of fascists. “All within the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state,” said the grand daddy of fascism, Benito Mussolini. Does this sound like Libertarianism?
Anarchists were at the front in the battle against fascism in Spain. Italian anarchists played a key role in the anti-fascist organization Arditi del Popolo that went up against Mussolini’s Blackshirts. But that was then and this is now. Now so-called anarchists specialize in making anti-war demonstrations look like a re-run of the Days of Rage in 1969. Anarchists think they are fighting the state by smashing windows at McDonalds and providing the corporate media with scary images of black-clad youths trashing bank lobbies.
Here is what the Infoshop News anarchists plan to do:
“Organize counter-protests against the tea party demonstrations, same time, same place. This is probably the best option. We need to get in the streets on April 15th and show the tea party movement that there are lots of people out there who oppose their agenda.”
In other word, as state-sponsored “anarchists,” the Infoshop News anarchists are opposed to protesting against and apparently support confiscatory taxation by the government. How they have deviated from their origins.
Is it possible they will be wearing their police issued storm trooper boots?
“Get individual tea party protesters to leave the right-wing and move to the left politically.”
The truth comes out. The Infoshop anarchists identify with the so-called left dominated by corporate and bankster foundations and run in large part by George Soros. Is it possible Mr. Soros is an anarchist?
“Ignore the tea party movement. This is the worst option because without anyone opposing them they could easily gain power.”
Please, statist anarchists — an oxymoron, but apparently not in bizarro world — ignore the Tea Party movement. Don’t bother counter-demonstrating.
“If the tea party movement takes over this country they will really hurt poor people by getting rid of social programs like food stamps, unemployment benefits, disability benefits, student aid, free health care, etc,” Infoshop News claims. “The tea party movement will say these programs must be gotten rid of because hard-working taxpayers cannot afford to pay for these things especially when the economy is in a depression.”
Anarchists — originally against the state, now a tool of the foundation left — are calling for more government and more theft of tax payer money and wealth redistribution, that is to say stealing money from producers (not multinational corporations, but small business people). How is this anarchism? Obviously, it is in the political bizarro world constructed by the bankers and one-worlders where warped propaganda is disseminated by the funhouse mirror corporate media that distorts any significant political opposition. Infoshop News is merely doing its part.
It makes sense that anarchists, as stooges for the state (and actors in corporate media propaganda), now sound like apologists for government and have picked up Keith Olbermann’s talking points. Like the Republican Tea Party, the anarchists were infiltrated and turned into a vehicle for making real activists look like violent clowns.
Anarchists are invariably deployed when real political protest arises. It will be no different on April 15 as the state continues its effort to discredit and marginalize all effective opposition.
