Lars Larson Hate show calling for Recall of Katz & assault on protesters tonite

Apparently Lars Larson (AM 760) has been waging a campaign to mobilize the right wing to get people to go down and beat up on protesters, along with getting Vera out of office.... Seems they are thinking the response of the police last night was much too peaceful.... That their hands were tied by Katz... couldn't have been Kroeker Larson says.... Apparently Katz is incompetent because she allowed the city to be shut down.
Fair warning... the police dep't and Katz must be getting tons of calls-- when that fucker wages a smear campaign, he is about as powerful as Limbaugh at directing the confused frustrations of sheeple...

Channel 6 printed out a bunch of pages from the IMC site and showed them at around 3:30 p.m. Then said that somehow this site has the power to and is actually advocating disruption of the PPRC protest tonight. They'll be watching tonite from the air...

It has to do with the fact that she is a woman, jewish and rumoured to be a lesbian.

To the nazis and lars: bring it the fuck on.

Come On Down, Lars Larson! 21.Mar.2003 16:14

Lars the Infidel

You can beat your ass that Lars "The Lunatic" Larson will be nowhere in site this evening on the streets of Portland.

But it would be great if he did. Then he'd finally encounter some intelligent people to speak the honest truth to the foul Bush propaganda lies he's been spouting practically unopposed for far too long.

See ya on the streets if ya got the guts, Lars Larson!

see you right wingers there 21.Mar.2003 16:21

dude

My bowl of Cheerios trumps your ham and eggs. You can talk all you want but I ain't takin' no shovin'. Long live freedom of speech!

Lars Larsen is as hate-filled and miserable as Rush Limbaugh, that is obvious. He is also playing his part in the fascist machine currently rolling over us. And yes, we should be angry. But we should be very, very smart in our anger. We will win nothing by proving ourselves to be hypocrits. A peaceful response that turns into a melee with brown-shirt wannabes will only confirm, in the minds of anyone who is wavering, that we are lawless rabble with no legitimate cause and should be stopped. We can only win people to our side by showing greater courage. Take our cue from Rachel Corrie--a megaphone against a bulldozer, no matter how that skirmish ends, resonates with greater power than blowing up the bulldozer does. One martyr is worth a thousand soldiers. Be prepared to die, but not to kill. Has there not been enough of killing?

Portland

What do you suggest? 21.Mar.2003 16:56

don't take any shit

Not fighting back if they attack? Sorry I wouldn't do that and neither would 95% of other people. Besides it is your legal right to defend yourself, even the most indoctrinated consumer drone already understands that. I'm not going to get my teeth kicked out to demonsrate a principle everyone already accepts.

Bad Vera 21.Mar.2003 16:56

Hey Hey Ho Ho Vera Katz has got to go cheerios@chex.gov

Come to think of it, Vera Katz violated the City of Portland's code of ethics by allowing her leftist ideology to interfere with her duty to the city.

Just like she does during every "peace" rally--by reeling in the cops and letting her little marxist friends to run rampant.

It's great to live in Little Leningrad, in the Socialist County of Multnomah. . . .

That's a pretty interesting take on Vera Katz, considering that she basically has handed the city over to the Portland Business Alliance, to run as they see fit. You must be one of those people who thinks that the New York Times is a liberal, leftist newspaper. IT must be nice to inhabit that kind of fantasy world.. haha..

Oh, you mean Lars... 21.Mar.2003 19:18

...one of the biggest dickheads in Portland. Vera, with all her flaws, can kick his ass any day.

Looks like she was listening... 21.Mar.2003 19:50

As I said in a previous post. The crap the cops let you idiots get away with last night was because Vera let it happen. It made the national news, embarrassed the hell out of her and everyone in Portland - now the cops are shutting this moronic and illegal behavior down quickly tonight. She must have been listening, because sweet Vera seems to have turned the good chief loose tonight. Don't be suprised if some skulls get cracked.

By the way, just because I know all you radicals are so loving and peaceful, I wanted to let you know that the police officer you cracked in the skull last night had to have stiches in his head, but will recover. The one you threw the acid on was saved any injury by his face shield. The woman and the kids in the mini van terrorized by your roaming band of social misfits last night is fine, but called the talk shows today to tell everyone about it.

What about your side? 21.Mar.2003 20:04

...the numerous intentioanl hit and runs should be prosecuted soon.

Yeah, right 21.Mar.2003 20:24

Maybe, I've had similar thoughts myself.

Vera's certainly not perfect (but then again, neither is Chirac), but she is still (a) a Democrat, (b) a Jew who escaped Hitler, and (c) opposed to this war, judging by her comments and her vote on the antiwar resolution at the city council. She can probably see the parallels between Georgie and Adolf. She may, in fact, be publicly wringing her hands about how awful the demonstrators are, and privately cheering us on and saying "fuck you, Bush".

If so, more power to her. The movement needs any and all the support it can get.

It made the national news,
Hopefully the international news as well; that's a big part of why I was out there.

Bullshit, bullshit, bullshit, and bullshit.

If Vera is privately letting the demos get militant without police reprisals, then any embarrassment is faked and she's privately pleased. If she's not, then the original charge that she was is B.S. Your claims are internally inconsistant and thus cannot be true.

And how dare you have the audacity to claim embarrassment for "everyone in Portland". The fact that people come out against shit like this instead of sitting on their lazy asses is one of the things I love about this place.

The cops were not ultra-aggressive tonight; the chief wasn't turned loose; skulls didn't get cracked. There were no confrontations at the PPRC rally this evening. None.

Some skulls did get cracked tonight on the march after the PPRC one. That's to be expected. However, that will only make more people march. In the mean time, I didn't see any right wingers there. Lars, I guess your audience doesn't respect you as much as you think!

can they track us? 21.Mar.2003 22:52

skip

Can them right wingers track us through the records is we were arrested? Will they be able to find out where we live? I don't want them to know where I live. The cowards that make threats against us would be the type to wait until I'm alone somewhere. Stick together.

PEACE

Yes they can track you, and your name is already on the Homeland Security database. Probably not much danger from the Lars Larson nazis though, most of them can't read, don't know how to write a request for public information.
