Velvet Revolution, a Tides Foundation-funded group co-founded by convicted terrorist bomber Brett Kimberlin and radical journalist Brad Friedman, is participating. So are the Communist-dominated anti-war coalition United for Peace and Justice, and other radical left-wing groups such as ANSWER (Action Now to Stop War and End Racism), Code Pink, and World Can’t Wait, an offshoot of the Revolutionary Communist Party.
In normal times a protest involving a group like World Can’t Wait, which used cheap political theatrics in a futile effort to drive President Bush out of the White House, might not matter. But in an age of massive unemployment, public unease, overheated rhetoric, and escalating political violence from the Left, the group could become a genuine threat. This is especially true if the group’s crazed adherents believe their long-awaited revolution is finally within their grasp.
As planning for October 6 continues, the Left is escalating its already-vituperative rhetoric.
A few days ago a member of the neo-communist Congressional Progressive Caucus said Tea Party supporters in Congress want the Jim Crow era to return and to see black Americans lynched. At a meeting of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) Rep. Andre Carson (D-IN) said some in Congress would “love to see us as second-class citizens” and “some of them in Congress right now of this Tea Party movement would love to see you and me … hanging on a tree.”
This was not an isolated incident for Carson, who is also a member of the CBC. The Al Sharpton wannabe, who is one of only two Muslims in Congress, also told reporters last year that he heard the N-word hurled at Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) outside the Capitol by anti-Obamacare protesters. But it never happened. Conservative Internet news entrepreneur Andrew Breitbart offered $100,000 to anyone who could provide recorded evidence that the racial slur was uttered at the event. No one has come forward.
Joanne Dowdell, a Democratic congressional candidate in New Hampshire, said she is seeking office because the 2012 election is about “class warfare.” Dowdell is not on the fringes of her party. She is a former DNC committeewoman and was a delegate at the 2008 party convention that nominated Obama for the presidency.
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) has called for runs on the banks and threatened “to tax them out of business” if they don’t forgive under-water homeowners’ mortgage principal. Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) said “racism” is largely responsible for high black unemployment rates.
A demonstrator from the Red & Anarchist Action Network was captured on video at a protest earlier this week outside the Wisconsin state capitol. He was helping to hold up a banner that read “Class Warfare. No Justice. No Peace.”
He shouted to the cameraman, “It’s coming! Get ready! All you f—- tea-party-baggers. It’s coming. Get ready.”
There is a good chance he meant it.
