‘Don’t F**k With Us’: Occupy Group Encourages Violence Against Police in ‘Action Planning’ Videos

“ResistRNC“ or ”Occupy the RNC,” an Occupy-related protest of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., this August, has posted some disturbing “action planning” videos on their website, encouraging protesters to take violent action against police.

The top of the group’s “action” page states, “…if you are looking for ideas to help you with your action planning, here are some helpful videos!”

“Anything is possible…anything. Happy Action Planning!” the website reads.

The site makes sure to distance itself from potential violence by claiming ResistRNC is an “above-ground coordinating committee. We are not organizing actions.“ They also try to claim they are not ”condoning or supporting illegal activities.”

That would be a lot more convincing if one of the “helpful” videos posted on ResistRNC‘s website didn’t show a man igniting a Molotov cocktail and tossing it towards a group of police officers before putting up two middle fingers towards the cops. But it does.

The video appears to be some sort of a remix of the popular Jay-Z and Kanye West song, “Run This Town,” put together by a group called SubMedia TV and apparently preformed by a group that calls themselves Testament.

Viva La Revolucion!

The Obama Campaign rolled out some new fonts on the campaign last week. The typeface chosen for the word ‘America’ was starkly different that anything we had seen before. Buzzfeeds Zeke Miller found out that the font was named Revolution Gothic. According to myfonts.com the typeface origin is seeded in Cuban Communist propaganda.

“The original font is inspired by retro propaganda posters and wallpaintings in Cuba from the 60s to 80s.”

Confessions of a former communist

I have a confession to make.

It might help explain why I fear a second term of Barack Obama so much.

I understand what Obama is and what he is doing because I was once like him: I am a former communist.

As a youth growing up during the Vietnam War, I was influenced by some of the more extreme, anti-American opposition to that conflict and began to identify with the enemy. I became convinced the U.S. epitomized all that was evil in the world.

During high school, I was arrested in what we called “anti-war demonstrations” that should be more accurately termed “anti-American riots.” Just like Obama, my youthful radicalism attracted the attention of powerful and influential people in the country. I was recruited for full-ride scholarships at colleges like Antioch, known for grooming the next generation of leftists. When I got into trouble for refusing to salute the flag, the American Civil Liberties Union was there, johnny-on-the-spot, to defend me and bring the school principal to his knees.

During the euphemistically named “Indo-China Peace Campaign” organized by Tom Hayden and Jane Fonda, I was give the “honor” of serving as a body guard for Fonda, recently returned from North Vietnam where she posed for photographs sitting in an anti-aircraft emplacement meant to shoot down American planes.

I was recruited for terrorist attacks like blowing up chemical plants by older radicals who didn’t have the courage to do it themselves. (I thank God today, I never followed through on these plots.) I wrote for some of the most left-wing periodicals in America – the Guardian, the Liberated Guardian and more.

And my reputation preceded me.

Even after college, when my views had moderated considerably, I was invited to meet Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, who were still underground for their own acts of domestic terrorism.

I tell you all of this – and there’s much more to the story – to illustrate the extent of my delusional misguidedness bred into me by a cadre of older and even less wise facilitators.

I’ve spent decades repudiating all those lies – deceptions and disinformation I understand better than most having been a victim of them.

But maybe I should have run for president instead.
