DHS SENDS IN CHOPPER to Intimidate Tea Party Protesters in LA
Gateway Pundit ^ | May 22, 2013 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 05/22/2013 5:18:20 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

ARMED DHS GUARDS greeted St. Louis Tea Party protesters at the Town and Country IRS office on Tuesday.

Around 300 protesters turned out anyway.

DHS parked their vehicles right outside the IRS office just in case the Tea Party protesters got crazy and violent.

But the DHS intimidation was not isolated to St. Louis.

In Los Angeles DHS put a chopper in the air and told Tea Party protesters they could not be on federal property.

They had to move away from the building.

This report came from a Tea Party protester in California.

Many of our 300 tea party folks were approached immediately by Homeland Security and told they could not be on federal property. My lawyer told me as long as I didn’t block passage we were OK. Many Homeland Security trucks and a helicopter above us scared many patriots so most of group went to public side walk to rally.

However, I stayed at IRS entrance telling Homeland Security it is my right to be there.

Then as I was leaving carrying my sign a woman jumped out of her car in IRS parking lot and started threatening me, “I am with ICE!”

To which I replied, “I am with Laguna Patriots!”(continued)

Sounds like they were begging for trouble.

Ya know, one day they just may get what they are asking for.

Interesting. I was under the impression that "federal" property belonged to us, the people, but apparently America has been fundamentally transformed - as promised.

The way things are going, the DHS is going to be Obama’s not-so-secret version of the Gestapo .... then again, maybe he has ‘secret police’ in addition to DHS. The Obama administration & associated thugs/complicit, enabling media doesn’t bat an eye at standing by doing nothing while Americans are killed, ignoring the law and Constitution, threatening and intimidating, stealing elections, having an enemies list, bugging & spying in violation of the law, and lying every time their lips move, etc. ..... and the Left wonders why Americans are buying guns. Go figure. /s

The DHS has said we are right-wing terrorists. First the IRS, now the DHS. Next the same as Boston. Decent people aren’t supposed to have opinions and express them. Only the Occupiers.

And don’t forget the states of Wisconsin and Michigan, when the peoples representatives were voting to take action regarding public employee unions.

the union goons stormed the capital buildings, beat people up and there were reports that the police in some instances stood aside.

Forgive my ignorance but exactly what arrest or other law enforcement authority does DHS legally have? They like to run around in uniforms and arms but where and what does their “power” (real or perceived) actually come from? Cause I’m not seeing it.

I went to the Hartford TEA party rally in front of the IRS building.

I was there 20 minutes early. There was a DHS vehicle parked on the corner that they thought we were going to be.

We gathered on another corner, closer to the entrance to the building. The DHS vehicle was moved and parked (in an illegal spot) on the corner where we were. That is what passed for intimidation in Hartford.

Funniest comment on the GP page...

I observed the "patriots" at the L.A. protest, and was amused to see many mobility challenged Polident addicts blasting Lawrence Welk 8-track cassettes from their well-preserved, low-mileage Pacers, Gremlins and Vegas, trading tips about where to buy sun hats, and the cheapest sources of Depends. There was one moment of hilarity when an elderly gent with a transistor AM radio to his ear yelled, "The Pacemakers!" People turned in alarm, but laughed when he said he was listening to Gerry and the Pacemakers. The gathering broke up when someone mentioned it was time for the Early Bird Special at nearby lounges.

Let’s make sure it’s not done in a hot-headed way,
but in a cold, calculated way,

ie, on our terms, not theirs.

Such lying intimidations by DHS are a form of terrorism and treason. The person who gave the order for this type of terrorism to be employed against law-abiding American citizens should be arrested, tried, convicted, sentenced, and hanged.

Let’s hope the order came from the top.

I've been saying for quite a while - their power comes from their ability to use force, not from any legitimate authority like the Constitution or the consent of the governed.

They are thugs. Plain and simple.

During the White House coordinated #Occupy movement there were numerous murders, rapes, beatings, vandalism, theft, drug overdoses, hatchet attacks, etc. Did DHS ever fly choppers over their violent rallies?
Just wondering.

They responded faster and with more force than they did in Benghazi. Are we still expected to believe that there was nothing they could do?

Does anybody remember DHS responding to any of the VIOLENT and UNRULY “Occuppy” protesters in this manner?

Didn’t think so.

Oh, and “Federal” property was paid for by our bloody tax money, you imperious PIGS! WE OWN IT, NOT YOU!!!

So the federal government puts a group of Americans on the terror watch list, predicting they will riot and become violent. THEN DHS infringes on that groups rights, and treats them like criminals, with the full weight of the IRS- and then has the DHS show up to enforce martial law on them....

The change people were hoping for is now here.

You got that right.

The belatedly-alert media must NOW ask the questions they should have asked THEN---when Ohaha first surfaced as a candidate.

NUMBER ONE Who is this guy in the White House?

Remember that O's 2008 PR person----Anita "Mao" Dunn--- said AFTER the election that the O Team "allowed" the media to know only what THEY wanted them to know.

Ohaha was tightly scripted saying only cute things that would get him elected----revealing none of his anti-America hatred. The Chi/mob Dunn/Axelrod/Enmanuel/Jarrett allowed NO probing questions and up-close interviews.

FOCUS-GROUP TESTED RESPONSES Ohaha was coached......genially saying on the campaign trail that he wanted to be "another Reagan." Hillary and Bill had ominous pics of Obama in Muslim garb--but Teddy Kennedy warned them not to use them.

==========================================

THIS WE KNOW The Obamanations are a tight-knit clique of socialists/communists/unions/progs/liberals----they see themselves as superior---bound together by "enlightened" values — reason, tolerance, diversity and equality. The rest of us are unworthy and are to be suppressed and marginalized.......using any means possible.

The Ohaha savages duped the citizenry, led us over a multi-trillion dollar deficit cliff, into massive corrupt bailouts, and atrocities like amnesty and Obamacare. Their motto: "Everything For Us-- Nothing For You."

In the wake of Benghazi, media abuses, IRS targeting, etc, we are reminded that the Obamanoids are ruthless predators w/ no empathy for others and no remorse; anti-social psychopaths who recognize no moral boundaries--aggressively going after what they want, irregardless of the consequences to others.

Assuming for the moment that we could ever get the media to cover candidates fairly and we could throw out this batch of mostly communists hiding behind the democrat/progressive/liberal labels, does anyone here really believe we could turn this around?

Every alphabet agency in all levels of government stinks to high heaven with public school brainwashed robots who upon exiting grade 12 were exposed to mostly communist professors.

There has to be a mass extinction of the liberals from our government otherwise they will make sure the public school system continues to crank out more of their fellow travelers.

How many times, from how many directions, does this completely unregulated government, have to poke us in the eye before we respond.

Had the Founders been so spineless as we are now, we would still be under British rule.

The DHS is simply the KGB of the USSA.

I hope not. War is a very bad thing, and I hope we are able to avoid a war with the parasitic voters who think they can live large by voting themselves our wealth. However, there are worse things than war; I hope we will not accept those worse things merely to avoid war.

It is not just him. The only thing McCarthy was wrong about was there are way more communists in government than he thought and their numbers increase daily.

Public schools using the Communist Manifesto for decades have been demeaning the Founders and belief that this is a good country.

Then those same kids go to college and are exposed to numerous SELF AVOWED communist professors and it is more amazing that ANY conservatives actually exist.

All the media coming out of mostly communist instructed J school classes are embedded with this Hate America mind set.
