It’s the terrorist guessing game sensation that’s sweeping the nation!
Now, you get only one guess, so you better make it a good one. You might assume from their coloring, for example, that they’re not Muslim—but that would be profiling, you racist [bleep]head. Besides, isn’t that Al Qaeda’s new method, outsourcing?
If you remember the old ads for Levy’s bread, they would show an American Indian like Elizabeth Warren, with the tag-line “You don’t have to be Jewish to love Levy’s.” Similarly, you don’t have to be Saudi to hijack jumbo jets and crash them into skyscrapers—but it helps.
Anyway, keep thinking. What’s that? You’re ready? Okay, let’s hear it. For the Grand Prize of a lavish weekend in Bloodthirstan, staying at the ancient and drafty Mordred’s Castle, sampling such indigenous cuisine as Cherokee Crab a la Mayonnaise, what is your answer…?
OHHH! I’m sorry, but “Tea Baggers” is incorrect. While I’m sure you’re right that “those a-holes are due”, this was not that time.
May we have the correct answer, please?
Three men charged with conspiring to commit domestic terrorism during the NATO summit were plotting to attack President Obama’s Chicago campaign headquarters, the Chicago mayor’s home and police stations, authorities said Saturday.
A police investigation that began early this month revealed that the three suspects are “self-proclaimed anarchists” and members of the “Black Bloc” group who traveled together from Florida to Chicago to commit violence as a protest against the NATO summit, authorities said in a statement.
“Black Bloc” was the group blamed for violence that occurred in recent “OCCUPY” protests, such as in Rome last year when anarchists in ski masks torched cars and clashed with police and even other OCCUPY protesters.
The three men were planning to destroy police cars and attack four Chicago police district stations with destructive devices as a way to undermine police response to other planned actions at the NATO summit, according to a statement by Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez and Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy. Downtown Chicago financial institutions were also among the proposed targets, authorities said.
Now, hang on BTL, you protest (peacefully, I hope). Just because these allegedly violent anarchists infiltrated the Occupy Movement doesn’t taint the movement as a whole. It’s like a piece of crab meat that’s gone a bit off doesn’t spoil the salad as a whole.
You just keep telling yourself that:
One of the suspects, identified by police as Jared Chase, 24, is from Keene, N.H., and spent time in Boston, where he participated in the OCCUPY Boston protests last fall.
A Facebook page bearing Chase’s name, picture, and other personal information calls him a DJ and says he is studying 3-D animation and game programming at NHTI, a community college in Concord, N.H.
Chase’s page describes involvement with the OCCUPY movement, first in Boston, then Providence, Washington, Miami, and finally Chicago. The page describes Chase being arrested outside the White House, includes commentary about the merits of antiterrorism legislation, and threats against police.
“Freedom cannot be destroyed by these corrupt pigs with badges,’’ one post reads. Another says, “Miami has the most crooked cops in the country. We should execute them before they do something well regret.’’
The Facebook page expresses support for Anonymous, a loose collective of activist computer hackers that has aligned itself with the OCCUPY movement. Linking to a post about the recent hacking of a Boston Police website, it reads, “[Anonymous] “to the rescue!’’
Gregg Housh, a leading figure in both Anonymous and the OCCUPY Boston protests, said Chase’s involvement in OCCUPY Boston was “an on-and-off thing’’ and that he “wasn’t around much,’’ preferring to move from city to city. Housh said several members of the OCCUPY Boston movement told him that they have not seen or heard from Chase since he left Boston in December last year.
“I can just see the sensationalist headlines: OCCUPY BOSTON GOES TERRORIST!,’’ Housh wrote in an e-mail.
Are we that transparent? I should hope so.
Come on, Tea Baggers, you’re falling behind. The Islamist terrorists are like the New York Yankees, a juggernaut of racist ideology, shattered bodies, and spilled blood; the OCCUPY-ers are beginning to mobilize into the violent anarchist they’ve always dreamed of becoming—and where are you? The late Andrew Breitbart’s bet that no one could provide evidence of a racist bone in your body politic isn’t going to win itself, you know.
How can we play “Islamist, Occupy, or Tea Party” if the Tea Party won’t play?
