She may sport fashionable togs rather than a face mask, but the chaos expected during the upcoming GOP convention, is partly courtesy of the stylish Teresa Heinz-Kerry.
The Ketchup Queen financed the shadowy Tides Foundation to the tune of $4 million to date. The Tides Foundation funds the Ruckus Society, a notorious group of anarchists who rioted and looted Seattle during the 1999 World Trade Organization riots.
This summer, the Ruckus Society has been training protesters for the GOP Convention. Included in their how-to Book for Dummies are mass sit-ins, blockades and pie throwing at high-level officials enroute to Madison Square Gardens.
With the money of Mrs. John Kerry, Ruckus Society members live up to their name of being ready to create a ruckus anywhere, but theyre bound to be more careful in New York than they were in Seattle. And its not because they are afraid of The Terminator whos scheduled to give one of the GOP keynote addresses. Its because they dont want their rioting, looting, sit-ins and blockades to leave the impression that the Dems and their gaggle of Hollywood supporters are the bad guys. Its the Johnny America shout mimicking Paul Revere: "The Republicans are coming! The Republicans are coming!" that they want to stick in the public mind.
In Ruckus Society Director John Sellers own words: "The Republicans would love to have images coming out of New York City that make them look like the reasonable ones like theyre about responsibility and law and order and creating a safe society, and that the left was unreasonable and violent."
Rhetoric aside, with tactics like dog decoys intended to deliberately miscue bomb sniffing dogs in their bag of dirty tricks, tossing marbles under the hooves of police horses and using homemade slingshots to pelt the noble beasts, radical protesters should be prepared to wear the unreasonable shoe that best fits them.
While some 600,000 passengers travel to Penn Station on regular working days, protesters are hoping that their handiwork will see the necessity of having to evacuate Madison Square Garden.
All lessons being taught to willing protestors at the Ruckus knee are ones to make it less easy for the New York Police Department to maintain public safety.
Philadelphia Police Commissioner John Timoney calls radical protesters what they are, "criminal conspirators".
"Theres a cadre, if you will, of criminal conspirators who are about the business of planning conspiracies to go in and cause mayhem and cause property damage and cause violence in major cities in America that have large conventions and large numbers of people coming in for one reason or another."
Nothing, least of all commonsense will stop the radicals who are on a mission the equivalent of telling the not so long ago besieged Big Apple to get out of town by sunset.
"We will draw our examples and inspiration from the brave shapers of history who came before us and those who put their bodies on the line to gain independence," was one of the loftier protester warnings on the Internet.
Ruckus Society patron Teresa Heinz-Kerry was a flower child of the 60s when she worked as a United Nations interpreter in Geneva. It was when she was hanging out for an Earth Day rally in 1990 that she first ran into the guy with the same initials as JFK.
The socialite, who partly financed the coming ruckus in Madison Square Garden, is not likely to risk her public safety by being in New York. Her protest days long over, for Teresa Heinz-Kerry the Aug. 31 Day of Civil Disobedience will be as tame as the ketchup bottle on the kitchen table as she watches events from one of her half dozen mansions.

Now why doesn't this surprise me??
could you describe the ruckus, sir?
Gee, why isn't this being reported by the mainstream media? </sarcasm
Um...John...rioting IS violent. Throwing marbles under horses hooves, forcing them to fall on pavement and injusre themselves, is cruelty. The Republicans don't have to PRETEND the anarchists are anti-law and order, unreasonable and violent. Look up 'anarchy' in the doctionary, John. Another John who wants a John in the WH.
I didn't know this about Teresa, but its even more reason to oppose her and her so-called husband.
You mean that the Canada Free Press isn't mainstream? ;-)
How is this intention to cause panic not classified as a violation of interference with political campaign laws in the spirit of McCain-Feingold?
This by itself should be a huge scandal.
I hope the New York police and the attack dogs are ready for these idiots.
However, in New York, the lawyers and judges will likely help the anarchists go free and try to police instead.
These are the same type of thugs that came to Genova Italy.
Isn't it against the law to yell fire in a crowded theatre? Does this same law apply to those would incite panic and endanger the public in a time of war? Maybe these types of actions should be considered an act of terrorism in a time of war.
You can bet your sweet bippy that if a Freeper were to hit one of the anti-Bush protesters with a pie, the protester would file a lawsuit. But they sure seem to think it is okay to hit conservatives with a pie.
They should be jailed for these kinds of actions. This is not protesting - it is terrorism.
Huh? Stylish? Must mean the blowsy hair and rumpled ill-fitting suits.
..'tossing marbles under their feet. . and shooting slingshots at police horses. .'
Does Peta know about this?
We better start 'spreading the word' as they say in NY, NY!!!
