I honestly would like to know if other conventions resemble a fascist post-apocalyptic dystopian future as much as this one does. Citizen.

Yet another example of Right-Wing Authoritarians becoming worried about a supposed danger, and doing their very best to amplify the situation. That way, they get to prove their worries correct, usually by being the more aggressive gang and starting the the conflicts themselves.

...both northern and southern California still "braced for invasion." This was because various elements of the press had managed to convince each other that there were actually five hundred to a thousand Hell's Angels -- so when only two hundred showed up at Bass Lake both the news media and the police felt certain the others would strike somewhere else.

[...]

But it was the same old story: the police were expecting at least five hundred savages coming in for a rumble; roadblocks would detain them, but for how long? And what then? The idea that the Angels would ride two hundred miles for a party and then be turned back by a roadblock ten miles from their destination was obviously wishful thinking. There would surely be violence, a bloody clash on a major highway, with holiday traffic backed up for miles. The alternative was to let them pass, but that too was fraught with tragic possibilities. It was a certified conundrum, a rooty challenge to the legal and social machinery of Madera County.

[...]

The police, in their wisdom, had managed to pile up at least a hundred bikes at the roadblock -- where the restraining orders were ceremoniously handed out -- and then released them all at once. So instead of arriving in quiet knots, the outlaws crested the hill in a great body ... howling, hooting, waving bandanas and presenting the citizens with a really terrifying spectacle.

shotglasss: If OWS people are there, they prey on each other. Rapes, killings, drugs, public pooping, and all the other stuff the left is known for will be on full display. They won't bother the delegates too much if they fear those people are armed.


LOL. Holy shiat.

You must be new to these parts. To answer your question, yes. Heck, at the last Dem convention Obama had a reporter arrested for attempting to report on who was attending $50,000 per plate dinners with then future Dear Leader. For the past couple conventions, mainly Dem conventions, protesters have been allowed as long as they remained in confined areas away from the convention.

randomjsa: Myth: People are going to be put in prison simply for calmly and rationally protesting the GOP!

Reality: People are going to be put in jail for being disruptive and intentionally provoking incidents so they can whine about them later.


Myth: Protests turn into riots all on their own

Reality: Cops go off at the drop of a hat, rushing in with horse and tear gas at the slightest hint of trouble.

No, I prefer Mai Tais, but only when I'm in Hawai'i. Other than that, I don't drink alcohol at all. Collecting shotglasses has been a hobby for a long time. There's 3 Ss in it, because someone had the correct spelling already.

Conservatives are too busy trying to pay for the government freebies liberals get to worry about committing crimes against liberals. Besides, there's enough liberals committing crimes on other liberals to keep us smiling about it. OWS FTW!

6655321: Cover charges will be used to keep protesters in custody while the RNC is functioning. Long processing time, individual movement with the system, and other legal tricks will ensure the troublemakers (besides the delegates) will be kept far away from the convention and out of media coverage. Months later, the courts will drop charges against most of the arrested- leaving the citizens to pay damages.

The are three forms of government- 1040 Long,1040 Short and 1040 EZ.


What percentage of the cover charge goes to the band?

Well, left wing hippie solcialists do seem to have a hard time controlling themselves when they protest. Just look at all the damage and mayhem all the Occupy idiots caused. Sounds like clearing out a little space for them is a good measure.

Since we're not talking about the NYPD, I'm going to go out on a limb here and say they're probably better armed, and have better aim.

And, as the NYPD has proven, bystanders are fair game.

it was a sarcastic joke. I was merely pointing out how stupid the law was.

Marcus Aurelius: Now, now, noiw, subby, you have SUCH bad suspicions about the GOP's ulterior motives.

In reality, these are the people that the God fearing Police Forces are going to use to justify ketteling and then "dispersing" the "subversives", so that we won't have to make an example out of "Real Americans".

I'd hate to be stuck in Tampa, in any case.


Tampa is run by centrist Democrats. The chief of police, Jane Castor, is not known for being an authoritarian lardass.

I've got no problem with people protesting, but you just know that they're going to try to disrupt traffic or public services, and there's enough disruption already with the GOP in town.

TV's Vinnie: Myth: Protests turn into riots all on their own

Reality: Cops go off at the drop of a hat, rushing in with horse and tear gas at the slightest hint of trouble.


letmelaughhard.jpg

So basically your contention is that somehow peaceful and non-problematic protests/public gatherings go off without a hitch all the time. Examples include Tea Party events, events run by people like Al Sharpton or the NAACP, the events held by Glenn Beck or Stewart/Colbert, and a dozen others I could name but mysteriously and magically the police suddenly "provoke" problems at other events.

Wake up and smell what you're shoveling.

While it may be true that what you describe has happened, the majority... the VAST majority... as in over 98%... of people getting dragged away in hand cuffs were the result of the protesters themselves following the age old idea of provoke a response, get a response, whine about the response. These events turn in to problems because the people who showed up at them came to create problems. They're not there to simply stand in an orderly fashion holding signs and following the rules, they're there to create as much chaos and trouble as they can, and then whine like small children when somebody tells them they can't.
