    Radicals in Planning Stages of Massive Raucous U.S. Protests
    FROM townehall.com

    Kyle Olson |

    The folks who brought us the “Defend Public Education” actions last March in California, Wisconsin, New York and Michigan are planning a new round this year and will be drawing on the “energy” created by the violent, destructive riots in Europe.

    The Huffington Post reported last year about college students shutting down major freeways in California. In Wisconsin, protesters threw “punches and ice chunks” at police after the students were refused entry into an administration building in Madison.

    Now, plans are being made for a month of similar actions this year, kicking off March 2nd.

    Some activists have complained that unions are not currently leading the charge because they’ve become too “corporatist.” But they believe once they make their move, unions will move to “co-opt” the movement.

    “Student strikes” will occur in March to fight budget cuts and increased fees for students. What's happening in Europe is about to be emulated in America, friends.

    Radicals know this is one of their last opportunities to keep the gravy train running on time. But reality, courtesy of fed up taxpayers, may interrupt their plans.

    One of the movement’s leaders, Los Angeles high school teacher Omar Hussein, recruited “student militants” to support the March 4th protests in 2010. He’s a leader again this time around, according to sources within the movement.

    The month of “actions” will be capped off with a global action stemming from a huge union/socialist rally in London March 26th. As many as one million people will show their solidarity with those “in the firing line of the government’s cuts,” according to a statement posted on a public employee union website.

    The pro-big government radicals are in the planning stages of something similar in the United States. One radical from Arizona pledged that the actions will be “very militant” because what they’ve done so far hasn’t worked and “there are no other options now.”

    Radicals who fantasize about Che Guevara’s revolution, the Soviet States of America and the good ole days of Chairman Mao will soon be making their move. They’ll be doing their best to seize the current “crisis” and push their socialist agenda.

    Will they get anywhere? The big government agenda certainly had its wings clipped in the November election. But that doesn’t mean violence, upheaval and chaos can be stopped.

    And we shouldn’t kid ourselves that it’s simply a small band of “student militants” that break a few windows and celebrate at the local (fair trade) coffee house. When this action occurs, SEIU, AFL-CIO, NEA, AFT, NAACP and others will be right behind them to push the socialist agenda forward.

    This is the moment to stand up to them, crash their agenda and defend a free and capitalist America.

    It doesn't surprise me, have we all forgotten those in charge now are products of the late 60's and early 70's?

    What was happening then? The riots on our college campus's, of which most were products of belief that socialism was better. Some people want to think they were about anti-war, behind the scene's it was communism. We called it "just being a hippie"!

    I think the guy to bombed the pentagon is a adviser to our president!

    I seriously doubt that anything so widespread and dramatic is going to happen. Even most Obama voters, behind closed doors and among friends, will admit that big government and its irresponsible behavior is seriuosly threatening our future.

    Sure, you'll see a few students raising hell because tuition went up. But that's just another symptom of government mentality management. At many state universities tuition has been going up at twice the rate of inflation for years. I served as an industrial advisor for one state university that had nine new buildings simultaneously under construction several years ago before the economy tanked, even though their enrollment was flat. I asked, "Why all the new construction if enrollment is flat?" The advisory commitee leader from the university answered, "because we can." After that they built a new football stadium which they're current having trouble paying for.

    Bad decisions catch up to you eventually, and all the protesting in the world isn't going to keep that chicken from coming home to roost.

    Most of the people protesting anything have no idea what the real world is like. They want their desires met without being part of what makes it happen.

    The Greeks got all upset because their government titty ran dry. Boo Hoo. Euro Social Democracy models are failing, let's riot.

    Meanwhile, the Chinese are passing the rest of the world up. General Motors sold 2.5 million cars in China last year.

    If you don't hear the wake up call, you will pay the price.

    The coffers are running dry. Even Texas has considered raising the maximum class size from 30 to 60 students and /or eliminating the 12th grade. And Texas has the best economy in the nation. It's going to be pay as you go in the future. "Tuff titty said the Kitty when the milk ran dry."

    Some people do not want to be reminded of the reality that exists beyond their computer screens, or the front door of their house.

    They think that if they ignore it, it will go away.

    I know, I have a few in my family that feel like this. Don't watch the news (except for sports) because they are reminded that violence exists close to home, and they are too scared to prepare for when that violence to comes to them.

    OK, 7.5 Vs 8 shot. How's that for relaxation?

    I enjoy the diverse subject and interesting topics that come up on Trapshooters.

    I think we may see some riots as States slash programs as they continue to go broke. Combine this with high fuel, food prices and continued loss of real wage jobs, it could cause some unrest.

    Some sheepeople will not believe this could happen in the good ole USA. Those in total denial will not handle the reality well.

    Cuban: Why is it puzzling to see disagreement or debate on an internet forum?

    What if I posted an "article" claiming that 11.2% of K80s blow up within the first 10,000 rounds fired? Should everyone who knows that's pure crap just quietly move along without calling BS?

    Speaking only for myself, when I see unsupported claims which others might take as factual -- especially shrill panic nonsense about looming catastrophe -- I sometimes feel compelled to voice my skepticism. What's wrong with that?

    Paying for higher education is not a taxpayers responsibility. High tuition costs falls directly on the schools.

    My wife is finishing up her BS in nursing and the two of us are paying for it. Meanwhile several other students in her class...mostly much younger, piss and moan that they have to pay a small amount while the taxpayer pays the rest. Most of them are under-achievers and are just along for the ride. They cannot wait to graduate and get a $30+ per hour job at some big hospital to use their sloppy skills to care for the sick.

    My wife has said that if she is ever in the hospital and regonizes any of them, PLEASE remove them from tending on her.

    This thread is titled "Violence coming?" It is a give away it's not about trapshooting. Don't open it. Close it if you don't like it.

    For me I like to look and see what's there. It I don't like it change the channel.

    Best,

    I spent two days at the University of Ghent a few years back to learn about their history and philosophy. Ghent is a prestigious institution but you wouldn't easily recognize that from walking around campus and talking to average students. In Belgium, like most of Europe, college is basically "free" (funded by high taxes). I privately asked one of the department heads what he thought of taxpayer-funded university education. He looked around to make sure no other high-ranking officials were present and then replied, "Honestly -- we waste an incredible amount of time money on students who have no business being in college, much less being at Ghent." I asked what the graduation rate was for incoming freshman. He winced and said, "It's a lot lower than it should be for an institution like Ghent."

    Socialism sounds good on paper, but when you study it you begin to understand how it drags down the productive by saddling them with the slothful.

    None of this has anything to do with trap shooting. GET IT IN THE SECTION IT BELONGS!

    "The Huffington Post reported last year about college students shutting down major freeways in California. In Wisconsin, protesters threw “punches and ice chunks” at police after the students were refused entry into an administration building in Madison." And you can bet the Huffington Post will be there to urge the college pukes on. Deserving college candidates are turned away because of over crowding. Kick the bums out and open the doors for those who truly want an education.

    If there's one thing that could make this gloomy prediction come true, it's outside agitation being allowed to run amok. As they learned at Kent State -- when the bodies are laying dead on the ground, the outsiders who stirred-up the trouble in the first place are long gone.
