And that is just their first day! You should check out the rest of their events and speakers. Its a who's who's of radicals, criminals and communist.

This event later I particularly love;

Shake Your Money Maker, The Denver Mint Building, 5pm
It’s time to redistribute the wealth. The event will use a little magic and energy to draw attention to the issue of poverty that plagues our communities. The rich keep getting richer and the poor keep getting poorer. Poverty and capitalism are the biggest killers in this country. Between security and corporate pay-offs, the DNC will cost over $100 million dollars. We think the people deserve that money. Join us as we encircle the Denver Mint (where U.S. currency is produced) and use our collective power to raise the mint building in the air and shake the money out of it for the people. Don’t forget a sack to put all of your loot in.

Bring noisemakers, energy, spells, magic, costumes, anything that gives you power. We’ll need it!

And a T-Shirt they are selling for their "PEACEFUL" protest.

Non violence my ass with that!

And how they explain it;


What does the shirt mean? The designer explained it to me as a way to “support the real movement of the exploited to produce human utopia, or something.”

Check out these nut jobs!

I heard a spokesman for the hippy organization on Fox News this afternoon. What a loser.

Where is Eric Cartman when you need him?

I hope they do recreate 68. It turned out so well for the Dems.

I had just moved to the US and I know it had a lot to do with me becoming a Conservative - I was horrified.

DNC: Recreate ’68 Rally Has Impassioned Speeches, Media Ruckus (http://www.fortcollinsnow.com/article/20080824/MISC12/1306618/1062&ParentProfile=1054)


Staff Reports

The bomb throwing—certainly in a figurative sense—began this morning on the west steps of the Capitol Building in Denver.

One of the most visible and vociferous of the protest groups planning to make its presence felt at the Democratic National Convention, Recreate ’68, held its opening protest and rally.

The rally included impassioned anti-war speeches and a ruckus caused, in part, by the media.

"We're going to the Pepsi Center and tell them we've had enough of the f***ing war," said Glenn Spagnuolo, co-founder of Recreate ’68.

Mark Cohen, also a co-founder of the group, told the crowd of a few hundred that he had been on the steps of the capitol before protesting the first Gulf War. Sunday morning, he was there again.

"I tell you what, I'm getting tired of it," he said. "I'm here today to tell the Democrats that enough is enough."

He accused the Democrats and presumptive presidential candidate Barack Obama of voting for every bill to finance the Iraq War.

"The choice between Democrats and Republicans is no choice at all," Cohen said. He later took a shot at a favorite target, corporations.

"What we have now is a country by the corporations, of the corporations and for the corporations."

That was a similar theme seized on by Cindy Sheehan, whose protest against the Iraq War after her son died there made her an international anti-war icon.

Sheehan pointed out that the convention was sponsored by AT&T, and then asked rhetorically who, then, was represented by the gathering.

She said U.S. troops from all foreign wars should be brought home.

"They won't shut us up, and they won't shut me up."

Shortly before taking the stage, controversial critic of the government and former professor at the University of Colorado, Ward Churchill, told Fort Collins Now reporter Matt Brady that we was there to speak about "occupation and the war."

"Well, you don't have the war in Iraq if you don't have the war here."

He didn't elaborate on what he meant about the war here. But as Ron Kovacs—who was portrayed by Tom Cruise in the Oliver Stone movie "Born on the Fourth of July"—was wrapping up his speech, a reporter for Fox News tried to approach Churchill to ask him questions.

That riled many people in the crowd and they converged on the reporter, keeping him from interviewing Churchill and yelling obscenities about the network.

Much of the focus turned to the incident, with a large portion of the crowd being members of the media.

Shareef Aleen, from Denver Open Media, led the charge in challenging the Fox reporter.

"People feel like Fox News is biased," Aleen later told the reporter on camera.

About 11:30 a.m., the protesters started on their march to the Pepsi Center.

What a charming group

It would be nice if Joe Public saw this for what it is, an Anti-American Socialist extremist march. Unfortunately it doesn't look like they're seeing it that way, as evidenced by this moron on a car enthusiast forum that I frequent a lot.

I've presented numerous factual statesments to him, but he refuses to acknowledge them and just pokes ridicule at me and other Conservatives on that forum. Wonder if I should invite him over to spew his beliefs here and actually take on a debate? I don't want anyone logging in over there, the Mods don't want heated political discussions about it on their board (they always seem to let the left-wing propaganda slide though, strangely enough.)
