“Speakers will be physically assaulted.” -New Black Panther Party Member
Ah yes, the New Black Panthers. Those that Obama Attorney Generel Eric Holder would include in his description of “my people”…the group whose 2008 voter intimidation case was inexplicably dropped by the Obama Department of Justice with little more explanation than a sly grin and “whatever” shrug. Democrats controlled the White House and both houses of Congress at that time – little could be done.
These days though, conservatism is once again on the rise in America. 2010 saw Republicans take back the House of Representatives, and 2012 offers up the very real possibility for conservatives to regain both the Senate and the White House. Such a scenario appears to have the radicalized supporters of Barack Obama none too pleased – and now they are preparing to go on the offensive.
Take this just published report from The Foundry:
The “Occupy DC” protest group is planning to disrupt the upcoming Conservative Political Action Conference using a range of potentially illegal tactics that could even include violence against participants.
Speakers will be physically assaulted, not just verbally confronted…Two Occupiers, who the source also identified as members of the New Black Panther Party, “said they would be disappointed if they didn’t get arrested and planned to ‘make it count.”
The source quoted another protester as saying, “Mitt Romney has Secret Service now, but Newt Gingrich and Andrew Breitbart don’t,” seemingly suggesting that the latter two would not be as heavily guarded.
An attendee of the Thursday meeting, who claimed to handle relations with labor organizations, said the AFL-CIO had booked rooms for Occupiers at the Marriott hotel, with the intention of allowing them to bypass security measures at the door.
The words of these soon-to-be protesters will hopfully be taken seriously by CPAC organizers. And make no mistake, the disruptions happening now in such events are most likely the practice runs for much larger and more dangerous disruptions to take place later in the year as Republicans choose their nominee and attempt to ensure Barack Obama is but a one term president.
As Insider so often has warned – The 2012 campaign is gonna be brutal.
