Lefty "Peace" Activists My Ass

The anti-warriors, paroled felons and jobless losers who've been causing mayhem in St. Paul ain't all that peaceful and lovable:

What it found, according to an 18-page search warrant application and affidavit, led to weekend raids on two Minneapolis homes and a temporary St. Paul office for the self-described anarchist group.

According to the document, investigation learned:

  • The self-described anarchist group — whose main goal was to "crash" the Republican National Convention," according to its Web site — traveled to or communicated with affinity groups in 67 cities to recruit members and raise money.

  • Group members discussed the possibility of kidnapping delegates, blockading bridges, using liquid sprayers filled with urine or chemicals on police and throwing marbles to trip police and their horses.

  • At an "action camp" held from July 31 to Aug. 3 in Lake Geneva, Minn., one member talked of concealing inside giant puppets "materials" that could be used on the street. Others discussed the need for Molotov cocktails, paint, caltrops (devices used to puncture tires), bricks and lockboxes for protesters to lock themselves together.

  • Erik Oseland, one of the six group members arrested here, produced a video called "Video Map of the St. Paul Points of Interest." It included such major companies as Travelers Insurance and Qwest, hotels such as the Embassy Suites and the Crowne Plaza. Also included: the Pioneer Press building.

Nice group there. Kidnapping the delegates and throwing marbles are my favorites, I mean what is a little anarchy without hostages and euthanized horses, right?

Anyway, the police have had their hands full and it hasn't been easy for them. Let's hope none of the cops gets injured in the last two days. As for the protesters, a few cracked heads wouldn't even make me cringe as they seem to deserve it right about now.
