Anarchists Plan Disruption of Tea Parties on April 15

The lunatics will be out on April 15, 2010. No, Mister and Mizz Liberal Amerika, I am not referring to the Tea Party people. Rather, I am referring to the leftist, "libertarian socialist" crazies, a.k.a. anarchists, who are calling for the disruption of the nationwide Tax Day Tea Party. A post at Infoshop News, "anarchist news, opinion and much more," dated March 31, 2010 is calling for devotees of the web site to make trouble at a tea party near them. Here's the first salvo of that post:

On April 15th thousands of right-wingers will attend rallies in cities and towns across the United States. 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.

Apparently, somebody near the empty pizza box strewn Infoshop News office is making a good living selling tinfoil headwear to these nutters. They can't even see the irony of their own rant: They inaccurately paint participants of the Tea Party movement as some kind of conspiracy nut, all the while not realizing that this is, in itself, a weird kind of conspiracy theory.
"We think we are the doctors. We are the disease." ~ Alexander Hertzen, 1812 - 1870; Russian anarchist
Some of you are too young to remember the years of street violence carried out by Leftists, especially in the 1960s and early 1970s. Many called themselves "peaceniks," others preferred "hippies." They had no hesitation in throwing bricks through the windows of small businesses and threatening university administrators. Some threatened the lives of cops and even bombed buildings. Some, like William Ayers and his wife, joined the SDS's violent splinter group, the Weathermen, and later became close friends with Comrade Barack Obama. The Violent Left calmed down for the most part after Nixon left office in late 1974. It is not altogether strange that they should be resurging under Comrade Obama. Remember that they were at the peak of their violence during the administration of Lyndon Johnson, a Democrat.

Matthew Vadum wrote about this at on March 31, 2010. In his story about MoveOn's planned protest at the headquaters of the Republican National Committee on April 1, 2010, he noted the hypocritical way that the Left is responding to what they see, in a hallucinatory manner, as the "hate" coming from conservatives, especially Tea Party adherents:

It is an indisputable fact that the violence America is beginning to see is almost exclusively on the left, whether it’s a deranged registered Democrat flying his plane into a federal building in Austin, Texas, or a progressive coward calling in a death threat against a Republican lawmaker. It is all part of the left’s push to delegitimize opposition to the socialist takeover of America. If you oppose the murder-in-progress of the American republic you are smeared as a redneck, teabagging, racist obstacle to progress — and you deserve what’s coming to you. So it’s not surprising that the street theater specialists at are planning to host a propaganda event tomorrow [April 1] intended to reinforce this false notion that Constitution-loving pro-limited government enthusiasts are eeeevil haters.

Okay, let's get back to the crazy anarchist post at Infoshop News. The loonie paranoia is repeated in the second paragraph (emphasis added):

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.

They find the items highlighted items above to be objectionable? The rest of the items I can understand. I mean, I have nothing against gun owners, for example, but I can agree on someone with a freakish gun fetish. But "conservatives," "libertarians," "constitutionalists" and "American flag wavers" are bad people in the opinion of Infoshop News? If I run into any of these freaks on April 15 (and I'll be looking for them), I plan to ask them how their mothers traumatized them as small children and whether or not they are currently in any kind of psychotherapy.

The Infoshop News folks list their "three options we have with the tea party movement." The first one is the most worrisome. (Again, emphasis is added):

1. 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.
My Comment:

2. Get individual tea party protesters to leave the right-wing and move to the left politically. That would involve passing out stuff like this at the tea party demonstrations:
3. Ignore the tea party movement. This is the worst option because without anyone opposing them they could easily gain power.
