"protest warriors" is a new right wing group that has sprung up lately around the recent rush towards conservative ideals. We all know, yet some of us fear to admit, that the right has made majorly large steps in this country in the last 20 + years. One of the main tactics they use, is the co-option of our techniques, and "PROTEST WARRIORS" is the newest thing.
I heard about them on a conservative webpage. Their recent claim to fame is the infiltration of the Daily Show, and, much like the left, the following disruption that took place once they made it inside. So, I went to their page. Really interesting actually. They target youth, and they shove the typical right wing talk show host neo fascism down the kids throat. They then organize counter protests around ANSWER events and so on.
Some of you may have actually seen one of these "warriors" at one of our events recently. He was at the March 30 protest at Pioneer Square. You all know the guy, the one with "Besides fascism, communism, nazism, ext war has never solved anything". He had his own three person police protection unit, and a whole group of children...
Anyway just thought I would update you on the Right's most recent development.
The thing I find the most interesting is that they are claiming that they are "at war" with us. Yep you heard it. And that they have to "take the battle" to the "enemy" (us). They have missions with cute little names like "Mission Hawk", were they plan counter protests to events organized by the left.
Anyone else noticed that this country is kinda edgy lately? And kinda split down the middle???
anyway here's the link.
