tofu & bombs

From The City Pages:

What they were looking for, Carroll says, was an informant—someone to show up at “vegan potlucks” throughout the Twin Cities and rub shoulders with RNC protestors, schmoozing his way into their inner circles, then reporting back to the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force, a partnership between multiple federal agencies and state and local law enforcement. The effort’s primary mission, according to the Minneapolis division’s website, is to “investigate terrorist acts carried out by groups or organizations which fall within the definition of terrorist groups as set forth in the current United States Attorney General Guidelines.”

Here's the full article.


And this is surprising how?

i don't think there's any intimation coming from anywhere that this is surprising. but it is, would you not say, important to spread the word that these things are continuing to happen, as they have since ever. the difference now is that the word spreads quickly, and videos are taken and posted to YouTube to expose these assholes for what they are...

i propose that we all volunteer to be infiltrators into our own organizations. and we'll flood the FBI offices with reports on all that we discuss in our different protest and otherwise leftist-commie organizations.

picture hundreds and hundreds of little sheets of paper, emails, napkins and cryptic telegrams arriving daily in all local freddie offices with our respective goings on:

"tonight we spent several minutes discussing whether Sunny's papier-mache rendition of Dick Cheney's scowl was satanic enough. this subsequently morphed into a discussion of whether it was really necessary to invert the american flag in every depiction, or whether this was a tired symbol. two hours were spent discussing the polymorphous perversity of various ape species. it was arrived at that the bonobos are the greatest of all apes. we like bonobos. Desiree got visibly pissed at the improper grammar on two signs. during the course of the evening, there were three paint fights and some beer drinking. some people might have gone home together afterward. they might have had sex."

"this vegan potluck devolved quickly into defensive posturing by anyone who wasn't a vegan, which went on for a painfully long time. eventually, someone brought up fundraising and bus parking. several minutes were spent shooting down David's proposal that we bike to Minneapolis. it was decided that protesters should obey all traffic laws and not shout too loudly. there was some discussion of what to do when those nervous young men with the uniforms get tired of carrying all that weaponry and stuff and throw tear gas bombs at the elderly. then there was some praying, and somebody sang Kum Ba Ya. i shit you not."

"I watched the news tonight. It made me want to vomit into a bucket, which I did. This might mean I have to go to the RNC and register my displeasure. I might be compelled to vomit while I'm there. You never know."

"today i rode my bike in the company of another person. we eventually caught up to two other people riding their bikes. at some point, we may have lawfully used an entire lane on Fourth Street, and this might have upset some SUV drivers who admired our tight little buns and couldn't stop themselves from honking their horns and recommending various sexual acts. just so you know, though, we didn't mean to look like critical mass. we know you're scared of the revolutionary act of bicycle riding en masse, so we'll try not to ride in groups of more than two if we can help it. it'll be hard, though, what with gas prices being what they are. i've decided to live in my car instead of drive it. but i promise i won't park it in front of the federal building. that would be rude."

What, you're reading Minneapolis blogs now, HBH?

Damn, and I was thinking of going down to St Paul and doing some protesting this summer. Guess not.

we have met the enemy and he is us.
