Alex Jones’ Prison Planet claims that Obama’s thugs in the federal government will infiltrate anarchist groups who will in turn will infiltrate Tea Party groups in order to act like assholes at the Tax Day Tea Party rallies. Prison Planet reports:
Given the past history of how so-called “anarchist” groups are so easily infiltrated and provocateured by the authorities to commit meaningless acts of violence that only serve to discredit political causes, we should be alarmed by the possibility that anarchist plans to “crash the tea parties” will present the perfect opportunity for the establishment to create a flashpoint with which to demonize constitutionalists as unruly extremists.
According to leading anarchist website Infoshop News, “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.”
In one paragraph, the so-called “anarchists” have regurgitated wholesale the exact same rhetoric that the corporate-owned media, their supposed adversaries, have been spewing ceaselessly for months on end — that anyone who opposes big government (which is what “anarchists” are supposed to do), is a racist and an extremist, while also lying about the origins of the Tea Party which in fact was started by Ron Paul supporters as early as 2007.
The anarchists’ primary reason for wanting to crash Tea Party demonstrations, because “If the tea party movement takes over this country they will really hurt poor people by getting rid of social programs like food stamps, unemployment benefits, disability benefits, student aid, free health care, etc,” is completely at odds with the traditional anarchist political doctrine of extremely limited or no government whatsoever.
Of course, Prison Planet offers scant evidence supporting any link between the Obama administration or the federal government and these so-called anarchist groups.
A note to would-be anarchists: Buying a Sex Pistols T-Shirt at Hot Topic does not make you an anarchist.
A second note to would-be anarchists: Anarchists are against government in all shapes and form. Anarchists don’t eat government cheese. They steal the good shit from the grocery store.
A third note for would-be anarchists: For the love of God, I hope you don’t write poetry.
That said, you can be sure that a joker or two will show up at the Tax Day rallies with the intent to make Tea Partiers look bad, but I’ll bet you dollars to donuts, they’ll chicken out when they get there. I don’t know what it is, but there’s something about the “God and Guns” crowd that will have them shaking in their Doc Martens.
And frankly, it’s not like some of the more, um, undisciplined members of the Tea Party nation won’t do plenty to embarrass their fellow protesters. Seriously, guys, NPR has membership drives; the Masons do not. Be more selective. Keep the hillbillies and racists out. 2B1 Ask1.
However, one group, and I use that term loosely, claims that they are organizing efforts to infiltrate the Tea Party through a Geocities-era-looking website called Crash the Tea Party.
Speaking of anarchists, here’s a clip I did back in 2005 about a meeting between anti-war hippies and anarchists in Boston. I may be biased, but in my mind, it says all that needs to be said about both movements these days.
