    I have yet to see any of this being reported via MSM. I guess it isn’t important.

  10. mbabbitt on September 1, 2008 at 9:55 pm

    Why didn’t the police stop all traffic, arrest these idiots quickly, and then let traffic proceed safely? The mayor is a Democrat if I am not mistaken; sort of says it all.

  15. Denise-Mary on September 2, 2008 at 12:35 am

    It was clear they had “intent to harm” in mind. So why weren’t they arrested? I thought throwing harmful “objects” from an overpass was a do-not-pass-go, go-directly-to-jail offense?

    This is the sort of thug activity we can expect to see more of under an Obama administration. Guarantee ya.

  16. stace on September 2, 2008 at 1:09 am

    This is attempted murder. There have been several motorists killed by kids who dropped rocks or concrete chunks off of bridges onto windshields.

    I can’t believe the cops were so clueless on this.

    Dems are out of control, and the US needs to know about this.

    It’s pretty silly for you to confound the actions of a small group with all protesters. Then again, looking at the general tone of the writing here, you are all very silly people.

  19. Al on September 2, 2008 at 3:24 am

    I doesn’t get any more fascistic than using violence against those that hold an opposing political view. These aren’t truly anarchists because they aren’t targeting the government. Idiots.

    As usual the left radicals have come out. This just shows the people once again freedom of speech is only ok when the agree with you.
    Otherwise them become facists.

  30. Don Yelton on September 2, 2008 at 12:10 pm

    My friend and I have been saying for a long time that they do not want freedom. They want it thier way period and will do anything to get it. We on the other hand try to be nice. Will not work..throw them off the bridge.

  31. Non-Sissy on September 2, 2008 at 12:14 pm

    Well, that’s the beauty of a CCW permit. I just pray to God that one of the punks don’t confront me with intent to harm me, my family, or anyone near me that I can help. It’s just been a miracle so far that it hasn’t happened. I commend the police because if I were a policeman I would be sending the punks to hospitals, or the morgue, by the truck loads.

  32. Mark D. on September 2, 2008 at 12:45 pm

    Sandbag on a bus full of people is Conspiracy/attempt to Commit Mass Murder..one of the crimes associated with Terrorist attacks.

    Democrats should be very proud of their Howard Dean clones.

  33. So on September 2, 2008 at 12:49 pm

    If this is indeed our future, should make for some interesting target practice.

  37. Questionable on September 2, 2008 at 6:38 pm

    No video evidence of these alleged acts are provided. How can you consider this story reliable?

    Contrast this with the copious and shocking video evidence of police violence against the vast majority of peaceful protestors. And this, even after the deplorable “pre-emptive strikes” against journalists who had come to the convention.

  38. Evidence Required on September 4, 2008 at 10:44 am

    Am I missing something? The only evidence I can make out from that video is that something that looks like a sandbag hit the top of the bus. Everything else is conjecture. There could be myriads of explanations, everything from the simplest one, that a sandbag fell on the bus from an overpass. How can people assume that there’s a concerted plan to attack Republicans on their way to the Excel Center by “anarchists” and “Obama supporters” from something as simple as an object hitting the top of the bus that appears to be a sandbag? I don’t get it, am I missing some evidence that most people on here are privy to? I did a search and came up with nothing. Seems like conservatives always have an aversion to evidence.

    There’s a lot of gray area. Do conservatives know what gray area is or do they see everything in strictly black or white?

    Also, even if it was proven that somebody threw the sandbag on the bus that happened to be part of a group that happened to be Democrats, saying Democrats attacked the bus is like saying Republicans bomb abortion clinics. The conclusion does not logically follow.

    I don’t know, would you guys label abortion clinic bombers as anarchists, or are anarchists only people that don’t agree with your specific viewpoints?

  39. Oh Come On on September 5, 2008 at 12:14 pm

    Evidence Required – You’re kidding, right? These people have labeled themselves anarchists! Don’t you read the paper, for crying out loud? Even the main stream media has shown these people – NOT doing these hateful, harmful, ILLEGAL, things, but at the convention in protest.

    All you saw was “something that looked like a sandbag hit the top of the bus”? How about the sandbag that hit in front of the bus, behind the first bus? Oh, two sandbags must have slipped out of their hands…. you know, they were just prepared in case it rained really hard…. wouldn’t want to be flooded out.

    How can you rationalize bad behavior, regardless of who perpetrates it? Someone endangered the lives of people (in Nebraska, someone was killed by a person dropping cement blocks off an overpass) and all you have to say is shame on people for calling them anarchists?

    Geez! What a hoot that is.

  40. Molly Pedersen on September 7, 2008 at 5:35 pm

    “These people” (who?) “have labelled themselves” (have they? who have?) “anarchists.”

    This seriously smells like false flag / black propaganda. Either these people are deliberately lying, or someone has made use of them in order to create this story.

    1. No source is mentioned for the ‘information’ that the bags were thrown by anarchists or protesters of any sort. Nowhere on the video is there any concrete evidence to support this claim. If the people stayed inside the bus through the incident, how would they know who were on top of the bridge?

    2. The picture at http://gatewaypundit.blogspot.com shows a bridge with u.s. flags and patriotic peace slogans attached to it. Are we supposed to believe this is the bridge where the incident happened? Is this picture presented as ‘evidence’ of the ‘anarchists’, or is it just a suggestive illustration in support of the propaganda? Last time I checked, anarchists – who would be the last to show nationalist symbols instead of their black – were fiercely criticizing patriotic argumentation and the liberal peace movement.

    3. Nowhere on the video do we see any physical evidence on the impact. We see a few looks towards the roof of the bus, and we hear that someone is about to take a look. Pretty weak for ‘evidence’.

    But let’s suppose the persons interviewed are not deliberately lying for propaganda purposes, let’s suppose they are sincere. Let’s even suppose some official authority had told them these were ‘anarchists’ throwing the bags. And let’s also assume that the people in the bus had seen black clad protesters and anarchist symbols on the bridge. In this case I would suggest the possibility that this was the work of agents provocateurs.

    For instance, in the 70′s, several terrorist attacks were carried out in Europe by neo-facists, during the CIA supported ‘Operation Gladio’. Most famous of these cases is the bombing of Bologna railway station in the beginning of the 80′s, which is still ‘known’ to be the work of left-wing Brigade Rosso. However, two neo-fascist were found guilty of the bombing in a trial in the 90′s. The neo-fascist tendency today is known to enjoy considerable support within the police forces in the US as well as in Europe.

    Compared to false flag attacks of that magnitude, this incident is of course pretty minor. That also means that it would be way easier to carry out, and thus more probably the case. The intention of Operation Gladio was to represent revolutionary movements as a threat to ordinary working people (which they de facto were not) and encourage working people to identify with the hierarchical structures the revolutionaries were criticizing. This is also the case with this video.

    Why am I so suspicious of this? As an anarchist, I can assure you that even if anarchists are not opposed to using violence (no State is), they do *not* use violence indiscriminately against ordinary working people in this manner (as States are very well known to do). This whole story is fundamentally flawed in so many ways, it almost certainly has to be written by someone who is really unaware of anarchist politics and ethics.

  41. Jeebus on September 19, 2008 at 8:04 am

    Dayum…the pearl-clutchers are out in force today! Let me ask you Wise Sages a simple question…do you morons even know what an anarchist is? If you did, you wouldn’t be calling these idiots Obama supporters. You guys sure do enjoy the “helpless” victim role.
    Well…get used to it, cuz it’s gonna suck for you come November.

  42. Adam on October 11, 2008 at 4:47 pm

    The trolls are out in full force here!
    Molly, that happened to at least two or three of the buses, not just one, and was corroborated by numerous other witnesses.
    btw, the agents provocateurs argument is too laughable for words. You’d say anything to get your fellow anarchists off the hook and shift blame elsewhere, I’m surprised you didn’t claim that the people on the buses had it coming!. Agents provocateurs’ strategies in situations like this are more along the lines of mixing in with groups of protestors and egging them on to commit violent acts (i.e. convincing a protestor to throw a brick through a window), not doing them on their own. You have even less proof of your “Agents Provocateurs” theory than we have that it was anarchists doing it. Then again, people like you tend to believe all kinds of deranged conspiracy theories.
    As for why there was no video of the attack happening, I’d imagine that was because it was so sudden. The person with the camera and others on the bus were expecting a peaceful trip to the convention, they had no idea a bunch of anarchist meth- heads were about to try and kill them until the bags hit.
    “can assure you that even if anarchists are not opposed to using violence (no State is), they do *not* use violence indiscriminately against ordinary working people in this manner (as States are very well known to do).”
    I’ve GOTTA call B.S. on that. There were countless other occasions of anarchist vermin at the convention from groups like the RNC Welcoming Committee using violence indiscriminately against ordinary working people (i.e. a photo of a group of them ganging up on and beating a man for the crime of being a Republican).

  43. Howard on October 17, 2008 at 7:33 pm

    An American citizen should be able to ask Obama
    a question, without being crucified by the Obama campaign.
    Obama is ahead in the polls, but are the polls
    a realistic reflection of what will actually happen
    in the voting booth? Obama is outspending McCain
    3 to one … He has 90% of the media in his pocket
    … he has 98% of the black vote … he has voter fraud
    on his side, with groups like Acorn … and yet the
    election is still close. So far, all the conclusions by all the
    pundits are totally based upon POLLS. Not a single actual vote
    has been cast yet. Obama supporters gush at how
    well their man has done in the debates, which proves
    once again that Obama is a good debater and a good
    speaker. It doesn’t say anything about his character,
    judgement, or what kind of a leader he would be.
    I still would rather trust a man who would not sell out
    his fellow prisoners, even during 5 years of torture,
    than to trust a man who betrayed a 20 year friendship,
    for personal ambition. And … regarding this election,
    until people actually vote … it ain’t over till it’s over
