What will having their pictures accomplish? Can it stop them from showing up? NO. It hasn't stoppped me from being at any Chicago protests. They have had my picture for a while, yet their I am, at every protest.
Photograph them and post the photographs.

Many of these individuals have turned out to be infiltrator that attempt to gain access to leftist organizations for the purpose of spying and instigation. This is not theory but fact. Don't force me to republish the photos of such protest warriors.

There is nothing illegal or unconstitutional about photographing them.

Finally, they photograph us, so their whining is bullshit.

Photograph them and post the photos. They will be put to use. Photographs taken of Nazis were very usefully in tracking down and prosecuting Jew-killers after WWII. These people are fast on the road to becoming the next Nazis, only their targets are Muslims and Anarchists.

The ProtestWarriors show some of these "peace activists" who they really are. And as for Nazis, some of these "peace activists" are Nazis because they're Jew-haters, freedom-haters who would condone a dictator who cuts off people's hands just for not voting for him, and defending Al-Sadr and Zarqawi!

They go after patriotic Americans who support our troops and our President! These leftists want America to lose and have no appreciation for the sacrifices our troops made so you people can protest against our military!
False.
05 Dec 2004
If the Protest Warriors show protesters for who they really are, then why do they doctor photos, provide false and libelous information, frame people for crimes and instigate trouble? If these protesters were really as they are portrayed, then there would be no need to do any of those things.

If one followed a Protest Warrior around, they'd generally find a sociopath with few friends who spends his time living off of destroying other people's lives. Protest Warriors are nothing more than parasites.

As for "Nazis" and anti-Semities, you guys have no idea what a Nazi is. If you did you see one everytime you looked in a mirror. Your definition of anti-Semite is anyone who demands justice for Palestinians. You don't even bother going after anti-Semites. When was the last time we saw the protest warriors taking on National Socialists?

You're a bunch of deluded, self obsessed snitches who will one day get what's coming to you.

The ProtestWarriors do not doctor photos. I have friends who are in that group.

And when the ProtestWarriors hold their signs, you're the ones shouting into the camera calling them Nazis and fascists! FREEDOM IS SPEECH IS NOT FASCISM OR NAZIISM!
Re: Protest Warriors plan to be at the commons tomorrow.
05 Dec 2004
Hey i'd like to see those pics is there a link to the portlan imc where they haven't taken them down or can you upload them /email them to me?
Gee, Rocky, why do you expect...
05 Dec 2004
Why do you expect Boston IMC to delete information concerning infiltration and harassment by the U.S. Government. Is there something you would like to share with us? What are you expectations based on?
Re: Protest Warriors plan to be at the commons tomorrow.
05 Dec 2004
for the record, protest warrior's "appearance" at the march today was pathetic. it was 6 guys standing halfway acrosst he park with an american flag.
If there are pictures of the morons, please post them.
05 Dec 2004
Post them on Worcester IMC or WMass IMC.
editor's note
05 Dec 2004
Please note, that the Boston IMC has a policy of deleting any and all posts by or about Stephen DeVoy and/or KOBE. We have found this necessary to maintain the newswire as a community resource, since the conflict between them at one point crowded all other posts and we have no desire to see that happen again. It is also worth noting that both DeVoy and KOBE *asked us* to do as much.

I don't care about protest warriors. they bother me none. They can say whatever they want, they have the right to, and we have the right to ignore them if we choose. Whatever. I'm more concerned with the ISO.
Re: Protest Warriors plan to be at the commons tomorrow.

I guess that shows which side you are on "mothra"
Re: Protest Warriors plan to be at the commons tomorrow.
06 Dec 2004
i don't think there's anything wrong with siding against an organization like the ISO, whose last major contribution to the boston activist scene was that conference they ruined with their autocratic behavior in fall 01.
Re: Protest Warriors plan to be at the commons tomorrow.
06 Dec 2004
I was on the ISO website. And they're still trying to promote the failures of Marxism.

If they think capitalism is so bad, why don't they move to Cuba or Vietnam?

If the slaves and abolitionists thought slavery was so bad,
why didn't they move elsewhere?
If feminists think the oppressive patriarchy is so bad, why don't they join those few matriarchal societies in the world?
Forget that free speech thing. If people see something they want to change, rather than saying anything or organizing to change it, they should move somewhere else. That's what democracy is all about. Yeah. I'm so proud to be an AmeriKKKan. Wave the flag tall and proud!

Hey Suzanne, if you think America is so bad, why don't you move to France! You show that you hate our country when you spell America with three K's!

Honestly "non-sectarian", I'm much more concerned with people who feel they can come into consensus based meetings, interrupt everyone and start screaming about things that have nothing to do with the topic at hand, call people authoritarians and pull fire alarms to disrupt the meeting than I am with a few old dudes in army fatigues yelling hippies as we march by.
Re: Protest Warriors plan to be at the commons tomorrow.
06 Dec 2004
Mothra, I'm inclined to agree with you that sectarian groups like the ISO can be a lot more of a problem than counter-protesters, for the reason that sectarians are a lot more disruptive. However, based on the information that's provided in the link that Top Secret originally posted, I think the Protest Warriors were more than six counter-protesters--they claim that they infilitrated the protest with signs and chants that mocked the whole thing and managed to get themselves interviewed by European television about the oppression of pancakes. That is just as disruptive as anything sectarian do and even more malicious--sectarian generally think that they are genuinely adding something to the protest or conference when they act obnoxious. The Protest Warriors are doing it on purpose. The question is what we do about these people--I suppose try to chase them out of the protest when we catch them (which--according to the post at the Protest Warriors website--someone apparently tried to do.)
Re: Protest Warriors plan to be at the commons tomorrow.
06 Dec 2004
Protest Warrior was 5 or 6 strong, and was certainly not interviewed on any local station. Thus I doubt them being on a european station (why would they cover a boston protest?).

Hahaha comparing photographs of PW's to photographs of Nazi's? That's pretty pathetic. And PW has an operation right now regarding the National Socialists. But I understand that probably won't change your opinion since you'd rather make ignorant assumptions about PW members. Much easier to hold hands with fellow peaceniks in a big circle and just nod at each other. Wouldn't want you to actually have to defend your own positions.
Re: Protest Warriors plan to be at the commons tomorrow.

"And PW has an operation right now regarding the National Socialists."

Really? Who? The NSM? Tell us about it.
Re: Protest Warriors plan to be at the commons tomorrow.
07 Dec 2004
I'm just relaying the claims someone made on their website (check the link for yourself). They could be complete BS.
Re: Protest Warriors plan to be at the commons tomorrow.
09 Dec 2004
There's no operation concerning the National Socialists as yet. I posted concerning the Yorktown Nazi rally to see if they'd go for it. It seems they are. I'm no PW, and I'm probably not far right enough to be one, but if they're willing to protest the Nazis then I'm with them.
