Assault of the New Storm Troopers: styled to death

Celebrating and main-streaminng violence and disorder. This is how the culture is used to popularize, celebrate and mainstream negative values (nihilism), violence and disorder. But that's just Stock Photos. That's not how Will Potter, an award-winning independent journalist based in Washington, DC, sees it. According to the author of "Green Is the New Red: An Insider’s Account of a Social Movement Under Siege" it's just the public's imagination that sees Anarchism as synonymous to chaos, destruction, kids with green hair playing smashy smashy.
That's all a construct of the government. They're actually about #caring, #love, general assemblies using non-hierarchical consensus models and helping each other out (without the government). Ya know, what ninetynine percent of us are doing.
Reality is more like Chris Bevacqua "Black Bloc", a video zine featuring his photos taken 2 years ago during the "Heart Attack" march during the 2010 Olympic Winter Games here in Vancouver

Fascists in London - Double bill -

MailOnline: "The moment EDL bus is attacked by dozens of Asian men after it broke down following protest meeting in East London"

YouTube: "UAF - Celebrating Violence Against Women in Tower Hamlets" (video)

UPDATE: The woman had her jaw fractured by the UAFs, but is now back from the hospital. She had been dragged out from a back-door and beaten to the ground - Apparently the bus-driver not only drove the wrong route, but oppened the emergency door aswell - ALL prior coaches went another route.

Big Government: "Why Is the New York Times Shilling for Far-Left Terrorists While Smearing the Patriot Who Exposed Them?", by Matthew Vadum

As a wave of left-wing violence threatens to engulf the nation, why is the progressive New York Times running an ugly campaign of character assassination against a real-life American hero who saved lives and helped to safeguard the nation’s sacred democratic process?

Could it be because the newspaper is sympathetic to the goals of the thuggish community organizers and union goons intimidating state legislatures across America and wants to help advance the liberal-left narrative? (...) >>>

It was going so well...

Spiegel: "Crisis Fuels Rise in Left-Wing Extremist Violence"

Following the 2007 protests at the G-8 meeting in Heiligendamm, the number of attacks by leftist extremists has risen dramatically in Germany. The government is increasing its focus on the autonomists, but authorities know little about a new generation that is torching cars, and worse, in its fight.

The man is a member of Berlin's left-wing radical autonomist movement, and he's engaged in a struggle against the system. If a few things have to go up in flames as part of that struggle, it doesn't usually bother him too much. But there are limits -- and the deaths of three people recently in Greece, employees at a bank where someone threw a firebomb, have left him contemplating them.

"I never imagined something like this," the man says. He's come to a cafe at Kottbusser Tor in Berlin's diverse Kreuzberg district to talk about left-wing militancy in Germany. In his mid-twenties, he's wearing a baseball cap and a t-shirt bearing the logo of the Zapatistas, Mexico's left-wing guerrilla movement. He gives no name, revealing only that he was involved in organizing the May 1 protest in Berlin and that he belongs to an anti-fascist group. He begins to talk about Greece. The revolutionary resistance there seemed to have entered a promising phase, with unions and autonomists united on the streets. It was going so well, he says. And now this. (...) >>>

Pointing fingers -

Townhall: "Liberal Violence: Five Names You Should Know", by John Hawkins

(...) liberals in the media who are forever baffled by events that the average person has grasped since he was a child, these killers tend to break down into three groups. If they're devout Muslims and are connected to terrorists, then they must have killed for some reason OTHER than their religion. If they're conservative murderers, then they must have killed because of Glenn Beck, talk radio, the Tea Party movement, or whoever the hot conservative villain of the moment is and they're obviously part of a wider trend. On the other hand, if they're liberal, well then, at best the killer in question must be some random wacko who should immediately be forgotten. At worst, liberals try to paint leftward leaning killers as conservatives. (...)

This is actually quite ironic given that openly violent groups have been tolerated, if not embraced by the Left. ELF, ALF, the Black Panthers, G8 rioters, the black bloc at anti-war rallies, and even the Weathermen are looked upon favorably by liberals. (...) Still, it's not enough to simply point out that liberals wink at leftist groups that engage in violence. When the next nutjob kills someone -- and regrettably, there will always be a next time -- conservatives need examples to point towards when the MSM tries to once again convince the public that only right-wing wackos do that sort of thing. Here are a few worthy examples to throw back at them when they try it. (...) >>>

Update on Broken bones for a Palin pin -

Human Events: "UPDATE: Beaten Jindal Staffer Says Protesters are the Perpetrators", by Connie Hair

The mother of one of the victims of a brutal beating in New Orleans outside of a Southern Republican Leadership Conference (SRLC) event has confirmed in a new interview that the two victims assaulted outside of the high-dollar GOP fundraiser believe their attackers were part of the crowd of protesters outside the event. Allee Bautsch, 25, a top fundraiser for Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, and her boyfriend, Joe Brown, 29, were verbally assailed as they left the event, followed to their car then savagely beaten.

Bautsch’s leg was “stomped” by her assailants causing breaks in four places that required surgery, a steel rod and seven screws to reconstruct. Brown suffered a broken jaw and nose, a brain concussion and black eye. (...) The main group planning the protest according to their fliers was The Iron Rail Collective, a New Orleans-based anarchist group in the vein of those who make news in America and worldwide as they trash and burn cities whenever and wherever world leaders meet.

(Other reported protesters at the SRLC event included a group of University of New Orleans "UNO" professors and local Democrat groups.) Their signs at the GOP event protest included the capital “A” with a circle, an anarchist gang-style symbol, and such gems as, “Capitalist f***s,” “Tax the Rich,” “JINDAL, tell your rich friends to GO HOME,” and “Ruling class robbers” to name a few. Select protesters attempted to hide their identity by tying scarves or bandanas around their heads to cover the lower half of their faces right below the eyes.

Eric Cantor denounces the agitation, as his Richmond campaign office was shot at -

WaPo: "Eric Cantor accuses Democrats of 'fanning flames' on member threats"

House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-Va.) angrily lashed out at Democratic leaders for their handling of reported threats against members of Congress Thursday, accusing them of "dangerously fanning the flames" by blaming the GOP and confiding that he has also been the recipient of threats.

Concerns about security for members of Congress burst into the spotlight this week after several lawmakers reported death threats or incidents of vandalism directed at them and their offices because of their support for the health-care overhaul legislation. Some Democrats have suggested that Republicans may have encouraged such behavior by acting rowdily during the weekend House debate on the reform bill. (...)

"I've received threats since I assumed elected office, not only because of my position but also because I'm Jewish. I've never blamed anyone in this body for that, period. Any suggestion that a leader in this body would incite threats or acts against other members is akin to saying that I would endanger myself, my wife or my children. Just recently I have been directly threatened. A bullet was shot through the window of my campaign office in Richmond this week, and I've received threatening e-mails. But I will not release them, because I believe such actions will only encourage more to be sent," he said. (...) >>>

Ann on "positive space" (wtf?)

Human Events: "Oh, Canada!", by Ann Coulter

Since arriving in Canada I've been accused of thought crimes, threatened with criminal prosecution for speeches I hadn't yet given and denounced on the floor of the Parliament (which was nice because that one was on my "bucket list").

Posters advertising my speech have been officially banned, while posters denouncing me are plastered all over the University of Ottawa campus. Elected officials have been prohibited from attending my speeches. Also, the local clothing stores are fresh out of brown shirts. Welcome to Canada! (...) >>>

The Seattle Times: "2 radio towers in Washington state toppled"

Two radio station towers near Seattle that have generated intense local opposition were toppled early Friday in an act of sabotage that bore the initials of the radical Earth Liberation Front. An e-mail from the North American ELF Press Office, which has represented the shadowy group in the past, says the towers for KRKO-AM were torn down because of health and environmental concerns. Authorities say a banner that bore the initials of the ELF was left at the scene. (...) >>>

The Health Care Reform debate (the SEIU is an ACORN tentacle) and other issues:
Team Obama called out their goon squad this week to beat down the anti-Obamacare protesters at a local town hall event in St. Louis.

Wikipedia: "Black bloc"

A black bloc refers to a tactic, developed in the 1980s by anti-nuclear activist autonomists, whereby participants attended protests and marches wearing black clothing, ski masks and motorcycle helmets with padding, steel-toed boots and often carrying their own shields and truncheons.[1] The clothing is used to avoid being identified by authorities, and to theoretically appear as one large mass, promote solidarity, and create a clear revolutionary presence.

Mail Online: "Fifty years for 'urban terrorists': Animals rights fanatics jailed for campaign of intimidation"
A judge branded seven animal rights extremists 'urban terrorists' yesterday as he jailed them for a total of 50 years for a ruthless campaign of intimidation. Mr Justice Butterfield said the Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty activists made life a 'living hell' for thousands of men, women and children by subjecting them to a 'relentless, sustained and merciless persecution'. He also called for the law to be changed to allow tougher sentences for blackmailers, after warning the ringleaders of the network were likely to return to extremism once they were freed. (...) >>>

JIDF: "Starbucks in London's East End FIREBOMBED"

Harry's Place
has a story up which isn't getting much coverage. Apparently terrorism is happening now for online "glory" while it is barely being covered elsewhere. Here are some excerpts:

"Early this morning, thugs smashed their way into the coffee shop as the manager hid inside the office. As he watched on the security monitor in the office, they daubed racist graffiti and finally lobbed a molotov-cocktail through the plate-glass window. Luckily he managed to make it to the fire-escape and raise the alarm. Fire-fighters managed to stop the flames spreading to the adjacent buildings." "...At Indymedia, it is being flagged up as a triumph of "peace activism" ("Smashing the Israeli war machine - Starbucks, Whitechapel firebombed " is the headline)." "...Depressingly, the news that a shop in London was firebombed and daubed with antisemitic graffiti seems only to have been reported in the local press - and of course, crowed about at Indymedia."
