Anti-War Activists’ Homes Searched in Terrorism Raid

The Associated Press is reporting that the FBI is searching the homes of anti-war activists during terrorism raids:

The home of Minneapolis anti-war activists Mick Kelly and Jess Sundin were among those searched, they told the AP.

“The FBI is harassing anti-war organizers and leaders, folks who opposed U.S. intervention in the Middle East and Latin America,” Kelly said before agents confiscated his cell phone.

Sundin called the suggestion they were connected with terrorism “pretty hilarious and ridiculous.”

Sundin was “a principal leader of the mass antiwar march of 10,000 on the opening day of the Republican National Convention two years ago,” and Kelly has said he would march on the Democratic National Convention if it were held in Minneapolis this year, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

As I wrote earlier this week, fusion centers have a habit of targeting domestic activist groups as terrorist organizations. During the 2008 protests against the RNC in St. Paul, a Minnesota fusion center played a role in coordinating law enforcement’s response to activists, for instance. The FBI is being tight-lipped about why it conducted the raids and what it was looking for, but it doesn’t take a huge stretch of the imagination to guess that information gathered in 2008 could have some connection to today’s action.

ANOTHER UGLY AMERICAN

[RA VS US]

Now, there is a situation once again in Japan, as reported by [http://www.japanupdate.com], American [GI] Government Issue, arrested after assaulting cop, an American Air Force Officer by the name of Captain Aaron Wares, drunker than a lord, sucker punched a Japanese Police Office, and now the Regular Enlisted in Japan are looking to pay the price, well long before the boys enlisted in the modern American-Israeli Military Industrial Complex Foothold Forces of Occupation in Japan, there was an active Draft, not that you just had to go down an register at the local draft board, get your draft card and forget about it as it is now, you were going to get a friendly letter from your friends and neighbors in the mail with your induction notice within a short time unless you were a rich kid, or daddy was connected, so they are not what we called [US’s] Draftees, so [RA-RA] don’t feel blue you could have been a [US] too, a two year [PFC] Proud Fracking Civilian, but they had a choice so they are your [RA] Regular Army which across the board means you willingly signed on the dotted line, raised your hand and do the time, for big money college deals, and re-enlistment bonus checks.

[Just another Zero]

So, yet another Zero [Officer] has proven they are Zeros, and the entire rest of the Foothold Forces of Occupation in Japan are going to pay the price, and what is that price, well what they call a lock down, for the navy guys that’s restricted to the ship, no liberty, no going ashore, pier liberty only, to dump the trash in the dipisy dumpsters, but they are looking for [39] days with lock down of base’s with officers only having liberty cards issued and with a buddy, to be able to go on liberty, again for the navy, officers have to normally have the permission of the Commanding Officer to depart the ship, but this time he would have to have another officer accompanying him. Normally Officers [Zero’s] cover up for other Officers [Zero’s] , they get drunk and chase after another [Zero’s] wife at a function, or are caught drunker than lords cruising thru Officers [Zeros] family’s base quarters, they may get [Hack] restricted to their quarters for a few days, but things are heating up on the Foothold Forces of Japan, no one wants them there, from the taxpayers of the American-Israeli Military Industrial Complex to those Japanese that have their boots of occupation on their necks.

[Yankee’s Go Home!]

So, we have not only another Ugly American but one who serves at the pleasure of guess who, the guy in the White House, lets see just how far down the old soft shoe man will bow this time to the Emperor of Japan, or maybe he can give him a lesson in the old soft shoe like he gave to those of the Foothold Europe. We can only hope that major anti-Ugly-American demonstrations are on tap for his visit, and they will be well deserved demonstrations. The question that now should be on the lips of everyone are the Footholds doing more hard than good, and the answer to that is YES!!! Rapes, Drunk in public, Sucker Punching Cops, at even the [Zero] level is presenting the true [ULGY AMERICAN], when were in an era that NUKES are going to settle any major war, as can be seen with the American-Israeli Military Industrial Complex planning to use them on the Shi-ite Persian Republic of Iran in a pre-emptive strike as reported by (http://rt.com/), Russia Today. The cost and bad [PR] Public Relations out weight the continued occupation of Foothold Europe and Japan, it is time for those Foothold of Occupation to become proactive in demanding that the “YANKEE’S ULGY AMERICANS GO HOME! A lot of us are tired of paying your freight while your drunk in German Beer Halls yelling Bier Heir, or drinking warm Sake in Japan, acting the Ugly American, serving no practical modern purpose in the defense of anything, when the Nukes start flying you better hope your not too drunk to bend over and place your head between your legs and kiss your backsides good-bye.

Republicans stood in unison against efforts this year to repeal the military's “don't ask, don't tell” policy, which bans gay men and women from serving openly in the armed forces.
