Don’t be surprised to see U.S. government provoked violence to break out in the coming weeks as the Tea Party Movement holds rallies across the nation, culminating in Washington D.C. on April 15th.
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.”
Anarchist groups have a long history of being infiltrated and steered by authorities to commit mayhem and violence in order to justify a crackdown on free speech and the right to assemble. A recent example occurred at last year’s G20 summit in Pittsburgh, where footage showed three burly older men who look completely out of place with black bandanas over their face walking alongside young protesters during a march against police brutality in a You Tube clip entitled “G20 Epic Undercover Police Fail”. During a peaceful demonstration on the same night, riot cops savagely attacked protesters with batons and rubber bullets while also assaulting and arresting students who weren’t even part of the demonstration.
Following the SPP protests in Canada three years ago, Quebec provincial authorities were forced to admit that three rock-wielding black mask-wearing “anarchists” were in fact police infiltrators used to gather information on protesters.
Video shows two of the provocateurs pick up rocks and try to incite violence before they are outed as cops by legitimate demonstrators. The two thugs then tried to slip behind police lines before their fellow officers were forced to stage their arrest. Again, the fact that they were cops in disguise was later admitted by authorities.
Black bloc anarchists were completely infiltrated and provocateured by the authorities during the violent 1999 WTO protests in Seattle. The authorities declared a state of emergency, imposed curfews and resorted to nothing short of police state tactics in response to a small minority of hostile black bloc hooligans. Police allowed the black bloc to run riot in downtown Seattle while they concentrated on preventing the movement of peaceful protesters. The film presents clear evidence that the black bloc anarchist group was actually controlled by the state and used to demonize peaceful protesters.
At the Free Trade Area of Americas protests in Miami in late November 2003, more provocateuring was evident. The United Steelworkers of America calling for a congressional investigation, stated that the police intentionally caused violence and arrested and charged hundreds of peaceful protesters. The USWA suggested that billions of dollars supposedly slated for Iraq reconstruction funds are actually being used to subsidize “homeland repression” in America.
The fact that many tea party members have seemingly taken the bait makes a potential flashpoint all the more likely. As Raw Story reports, some tea partiers have implied that they will resort to violence if the anarchists get in their way.
Of course, only complete idiots or federal provocateurs could think that engaging in violence would further their cause – this is exactly what the establishment wants. They want to see fights between “anarchists” and tea partiers so that the police can have the excuse to crack the heads of both groups and the footage can later be replayed over and over on the news and cited to characterize any dissent as violent and unruly. This provides the much cherished “agitprop” the system will exploit to demonize its political enemies.
