In addition to the above article, a serious poster on FreeRepublic.com added these notes for Tea Party people:
Additional Suggestions By poster "Nachum":
Keep in mind that the OWS organizers are always the same people and travel from site to site with their astroturfers to cause disruption with screaming, meeting interruptions, chants and possible violence.
A. Go to law enforcement in advance and tell them about your meeting and that rioters with a past record of violence may crash the meeting. Have the precinct captain on speed dial or better yet have a few uniformed officers in presence if possible.
B. Bring megaphones. Occupy disrupters are famous for screaming their ‚Äúmike-check‚ÄĚ repeatedly and chanting to force a meeting to its knees. Be prepared to respond LOUDLY to their chants and tell them to GO AWAY. Tell the owner of the restaurant or meeting hall that they may tell the police to evict people who have a record of violence or illegal behavior.
C. Take pictures and videos. Document the disrupters and present the pictures to the police to file charges. Get their names. Post their faces on the internet. Keep a list. Spread the list of faces and names to other Tea Party groups so these people may be spotted on sight and law enforcement notified if they come near a meeting location.
D. It is only their leaders that are well trained. The average ‚Äėprotester‚Äô is given a script and chants nonsense. It‚Äôs possible the protester is a paid lackey. Andrew Breitbart would go up to the lackeys and ask them directly. He would put them on film, asking them if they were paid. They HATE when you do that. Look up his old vids on the internet. It is a how-to manual on kicking these agitators where they hurt most. It also might be future evidence in a trial.
A. Do not react with any violence. This is what they want.
B. Do not let them get you angry. They want you to react violently. So they may demand action from their friends in the administration to prosecute YOU. Even if you are in the right, you would be held as guilty.
In addition, the Tea Party should respond with a ‚Äúplaybook‚ÄĚ for Tea Party meetings. A simple ‚Äėcheck list‚Äô for the leadership in the group can be done before any meeting. Include any of the above information along with proper forms for filing citizens arrest, publication of the agitators information for use by other groups that is easy to access, a ‚Äúhow to‚ÄĚ file on uploading contact to Freedom Works or Youtube of the offenders and anything else of use for the upcoming election.
Update ‚Äď Some churches host OWS Workshops ‚Äď By: MJ
Tea Party people could contact churches and hold them accountable for sponsoring/hosting these Occupy events ‚Äď see below:
From the last paragraph in the article:
‚ÄúThere were to be 925 such training sessions around the country, according to MoveOn.org. In Toledo, a 99% Spring Action Training is planned for noon Thursday at Monroe Street United Methodist Church. Preregistration is required.‚ÄĚ
