On this Sunday morning, 3.18.10, oughta be interesting, maybe I should visit the “Tea Party Patriot” site again,
having found it on the Sunday morning, 3.28.10, as the raids on the so called “Christian Militia Hutaree” group were still taking place and apparently the “teabbager patriots?” had already laid claim to them as their own.
You remember this lovely group, if not we’ll be hearing more about them in the coming months, like this
Prosecutors claim Stone and the others plotted mass killings of police as a prelude to a larger war against the government. In Friday’s filing and others that trickled out over the past week, they described several ways in which Hutaree members considered killing law enforcement personnel.
According to one scenario, they would place a phony 911 call, kill responding police officers, then set off a bomb at the ensuing funeral to kill many more.
In another, Friday’s filing said, Hutaree members talked about “torching the homes of police officers and then shooting them and their families as they fled their burning homes.”
Swor and other defense attorneys in the case have argued their clients are protected by a right to free speech. –>–>–>
Free Speech, well there’s ‘free speech’ and then there’s ‘free speech!!!’, speech meant to inflame and used by those who wouldn’t want same pointed at them, laced with not only hatreds but threats on others, obvious threats meant to be carried out by someone listening but certainly not the speaker who wants deniability when what’s called for is followed through!
Now I start this off with the above because this group was intent on going after the police, their considered enemy, as well I’m sure any other law enforcement branch of our government, there to protect and defend, and because an incident was sparked by like minded ‘patriots?’ in Los Angeles yesterday, the 17th, by white supremacist neo nazi’s called of all things the “National Socialist Movement” which also brought a larger counter protest group described thus:
They included a wide assortment of African American, Jewish, Latino, immigrants-rights and anarchist groups.
from around the region.
As the neo-nazi group was much smaller then the counter protest group, and they had their rights to gather as per permits, guess who protected whom:

The neo-Nazi group had obtained a permit for its demonstration earlier in the week, and police prepared the rally area by taping off a section of City Hall’s shaded south lawn. About 12:30 p.m., members began delivering anti-immigrant tirades and shouts of “Sieg Heil” that echoed down the street.
“We are tired of you clogging up our streets,” shouted one white supremacist.
Another group member repeatedly denounced illegal immigrants, saying, “If the city supports illegal aliens and criminals, that is treason.”
A counter-protester shouted back with a bullhorn.
“You’re being protected by black and Latino cops, you cowards!” she said.
Now it did get violent, two were injured, wonder why:
Before members of the white supremacist group had arrived, a bare-chested middle-aged man with Nazi insignias tattooed on his chest and back walked into a crowd of hundreds of counter-protesters gathered near 1st and Spring streets.
Surrounded, the man mockingly bobbed his head to the rhythm of demonstrators chanting “Nazi scum.” About a dozen protesters suddenly began pelting the man with punches and kicks. He fell and was struck on the back with the wooden handle of a protester’s sign, which snapped in two. Police eventually reached the man and pulled him from the melee, as blood poured from the back of his neck.
And the Police, those that are the enemies of at least that Michigan so called militia group embraced by the tea party patriots:
Cmdr. David Doan said the LAPD’s goal was to protect free speech and avoid using force. “There was a tremendous amount of restraint shown by our officers,” he said. “We allowed both sides to exercise their 1st Amendment rights.”
Doan said it was a frustrating situation for LAPD officers. “We took some rocks and bottles when they arrived, and we took some again when the car had some trouble starting.” A bit more from the LA Times
Thing about taxes is one of the things they pay for is protection even for the extreme ‘free speech!!!’ and many in Law Enforcement as well as in The Military, and serving now in two long running occupations, never mentioned by these militia’s, neo-nazi’s or tea baggers, unless they deem it a need to show they’re ‘patriotism??’ and use the well worn ‘support meme’s’ then doing nothing in support, see taxes also pay for the care, are of all races, nationalities and religious ideologies in this country.
Here’s a couple of pics they also have with this report:

Their car wouldn’t start:

Members of a neo-Nazi group shield themselves as counter-demonstrators throw rocks, bottles and more at the white supremacists and their police escorts. Five people were arrested for throwing things.
This one, I’ll bet, has alot of time on his hands as he apparently vegetates on the couch and can’t get a date:
White supremacist rally

Naww, I don’t think I need to visit the tea party patriots site this Sunday morning, other sites or pages on face book have probably already started to take shape, like those right after a disgruntled tax dodger flew his quarter million dollar plane into the IRS office building in Austin Texas, defending and praising him and his manifesto, as the press did over and over, and killed a brother Vietnam Veteran Vernon Hunter who was not only a two tour ‘Nam Vet but a twenty year military career veteran as well as serving after in the IRS helping those who were having problems paying their taxes like the private plane owner who apparently liked the good life and took advantage of all that those taxes paid for but didn’t feel compelled to pay his share.
