The Yippies Are Back!!!

God, if there is anything I hate about the Dirty Stinking Hippies, it is their failure to understand that in the war against Terrorism, we do not need to know that the Evil Doing Evil Doers should be transported to nations where the cost of torturing them is cheaper.

So why should the tax payers be forced to fund these Media Events to help drive down the cost of the lack of reality TV shows?
In what appears to be the first use of criminal charges under the 2002 Minnesota version of the Federal Patriot Act, Ramsey County Prosecutors have formally charged 8 alleged leaders of the RNC Welcoming Committee with Conspiracy to Riot in Furtherance of Terrorism. Monica Bicking, Eryn Trimmer, Luce Guillen Givins, Erik Oseland, Nathanael Secor, Robert Czernik, Garrett Fitzgerald, and Max Spector, face up to 7 1/2 years in prison under the terrorism enhancement charge which allows for a 50% increase in the maximum penalty.

Affidavits released by law enforcement which were filed in support of the search warrants used in raids over the weekend, and used to support probable cause for the arrest warrants, are based on paid, confidential informants who infiltrated the RNCWC on behalf of law enforcement. They allege that members of the group sought to kidnap delegates to the RNC, assault police officers with firebombs and explosives, and sabotage airports in St. Paul. Evidence released to date does not corroborate these allegations with physical evidence or provide any other evidence for these allegations than the claims of the informants. Based on past abuses of such informants by law enforcement, the National Lawyers Guild is concerned that such police informants have incentives to lie and exaggerate threats of violence and to also act as provacateurs in raising and urging support for acts of violence.

Look, I get it.

I am all in favor of the need for tradition, and traditonal family values. And that if we do not have our own states sponsored terrorism here, then the US Military might have to drag it home with them from overseas....

But please. Hello, kiddies. Abbie Hoffman is DEAD.

It is too late to vet your 4-F card by trying to play act as if civil disobedience is Terrorism.

We get it!!! The GUILT of hiding out in america, when one could have been a highly paid torturer at Abu Graibs, or Basra, Or those fun places in Afghanistan, and our other friends in the region, is, well, a deeply emotionally traumatizing moment in all ProWarWannaBe's...

But is denaturing the values of 'terrorism' really going to work as a compensation for lacking the personal courage of one's convictions to follow one's rhetorical devices into the Danger Zone!!!

I mean, hello....

If these were real terrorists like 'The Dirty Bomber' whom the bush administration held incommunicado for years, and would finally flop over as a simple Federal Criminal, facing none of the charges that were all a part of the Media Feeding Frenzy about why he had to be held incommunicado... and the Fed's made their charges stick, even without the majik special sauce of the super sekret special torture driven evidence....

So, uh, why not deal with the real crimes.

It might helps as a step towards really dealing with the real guilt that so many of the ProWarWannaBe's are all so seriously suffering with...
