Democratic Underground Calls for Citizen's Arrests of Political Opponents

Remember the recent farce when the Guardian's George Monbiot made a spectacle of himself by pretending he was going to subject John Bolton to a citizen's arrest for being a "war criminal"? If the kooks at Democratic Underground have their way, we'll be subjected to more tasteless entertainment along the same lines.

DUmmies are advised not to announce they're coming before pouncing on their quarry, and to refer to convictbushcheney.org for information as to when suitable victims might show up in their towns.

There follows a long list of "war criminals," along with their alleged crimes, mostly having to do with being mean to terrorist murderers or the genocidal dictator Saddam Hussein. Some are household names like Condoleezza Rice and Colin Powell, but others are relatively obscure lawyers whom moonbats feel should be intimidated as punishment for offering legal counsel to conservatives.

Cue the Mission Impossible music. Your mission, moonbats, should you choose to accept it:

Form a team. We need teams in California, Texas, New York, and Washington, D.C., among other places. Your mission is to locate a war criminal from the list above in a public place, detain them, handcuff them, phone the police, read the criminal their rights and the charges against them, ask them if they have anything to say in response, videotape the arrest and post it online. Your team should include one or more people who can produce an excellent video and be extremely fast in editing and posting it online. Your team should include people capable of physically detaining your war criminal. Your team should ideally include a lawyer. And, of course, people who can read the charges and question the suspect. Everyone on your team should be able to keep a secret while you're planning your arrest.

Some verbiage lifted from Wikipedia is posted in a preemptive attempt to ward off charges of kidnapping, assault, false imprisonment, etc.

These clowns certainly provide some laughs with their adolescent fantasies of handcuffing those who don't share their wacky views. But they would be a lot less funny if the government were run by fellow moonbats, who through benign neglect or active nurturing might develop them into the brownshirts of our liberal fascist future.

Moonbat political pornography.

Would be real funny if one of these clowns tried this on a concealed carry permit holder, and he lets the blood out and the air in.

Seems to be some planning behind this conspiracy...how about applying RICO statutes against these DU types.

In NY, if you complete your mission you get a bonus, just like in a video game. Except the bonus in NY is that you get arrested for assault, unlawful restraint, kidnapping and several other felonies which will result in you discovering the joys of jailhouse sex, which given that your a DU betamale douchebag, will not end well for you.

Actually, yeah, this may be criminal. If that abortion website can get busted, so can these assholes.

I think the A-Team is what they're looking for.

Posted by: lordsomber at June 3, 2008 3:44 PM

if anyone touched me on the street I would shoot them in the face faster than they could say "Hey aren't you...?" Seriously, I would gun them down if I felt threatened and thought they were trying to kidnap me.

Posted by: Ross at June 3, 2008 3:45 PM

don't shoot them, that's a waste of perfectly good ammo, like any bunch of geeks, all you need to do is look mad and act like you're going to hit them, they scream like little girls and run home to their momma's basement.

"I think the A-Team is what they're looking for."

More like the "Asshole Team".

Posted by: N. O'Brain at June 3, 2008 4:22 PM

Good point, shoey. The DUmmies may be psychotic, but they also tend to be stereotypical "Internet tough guys;" They act like brave, mighty revolutionaries behind the safety of their home computers, but when confronted face- to- face with people who actively oppose them and are willing to fight back against their deranged efforts, they quickly lose all their arrogance and self- rigteousness, and a simple snarl or angry look from the opposition would be enough to send the DUmmies running home, in desperate need of a fresh change of underwear.

Posted by: Adam at June 3, 2008 4:35 PM

How are they going to do this? Run at Rove or Bolton yelling "Lightning Bolt! Lightning Bolt!

Posted by: Kasper Hauser at June 3, 2008 4:39 PM

I would not want to be the Citizen who tries to arrest me as a Citizen. That is called kidnapping.

You always have the right to use deadly force to protect yourself at that point; especially if handcuffs are produced.....

There is not a State in the USA that can not deny you to protect yourself with deadly force. They can still press charges, and most states might when they see the dead body of the Citizen.... but, the first MoonBat killed doing this will send a very loud message.

On another note, a great deal of the people on thier list travel with professional protection. Oops.........

shoey, Adam: Underestimation of an adversary is, more often than not, a last mistake. This is what you buy ammo for. Use it.

Here in Texas, we are blessed to have the Castle Doctrine in effect, with no "duty to retreat." This covers one's home, place of work, and vehicle. If a scumbag opens a door on your vehicle, he just painted a target on himself, and is begging to be shot.

Details here.

They apparently forgot step 9: "Prepare to go to federal prison on kidnapping charges because you're a giant dumbass."

Posted by: iirightii at June 3, 2008 6:10 PM

Sounds like conspiracy to commit kidnapping/unlawful imprisonment.

Several of the comments show an agreement to commit the crime.

Now all that's needed is for one of the conspirators to take a significant step towards the completion of the crime (such as buying handcuffs, which has probably happened).

So, yeah, conspiracy to commit. Though I doubt they'll be prosecuted for their crime (sadly).

Of course, their pathetic wikipedia defense that their little kidnap fantasies are legal is laughable. If their pathetic logic is correct, I can "citizen's arrest" them for conspiracy.

Note that Swanson isn't planning on doing any of this. His plan is to get dim-witted fools to do it for him. He's been one of the biggest advocates for impeachment. Now that the impeachment movement sees there isn't going to be an impeachment this is their next step. Talk about cynical.

Posted by: Kevin R at June 3, 2008 8:13 PM

What do I have to do to get on the list of possible arrestees? This could make life soooo much more interesting...

Posted by: PabloD at June 3, 2008 9:07 PM

Your team should include people capable of physically detaining your war criminal.

There's the bug. You could scrape the bowl and still come up empty, trying to find a person capable of physicality on DU.

A team of them jumping your average person, would look like a clown car full of midgets trying to wrestle down Hulk Hogan.

Posted by: papertiger at June 3, 2008 11:05 PM

Well,this sounds more like a massive lefty wet dream than anything else...but if one of them did try that here in Houston,I would very likely introduce him to the care free world of quadriplegia instead of killing him...that way he has the rest of his miserable little life to reflect on the error of his ways and the foolhardiness of messing with people for the sake of the purely invented narrative that they ascribe to

Riiiiiight. Because in a court of law that's going to sound like a noble plot to fight for social justice, and not like a premeditated kidnapping attempt. And posting video of the kidnapping online is also an extremely smart move. Can't wait to see someone try this on on one of the lawyers on their war criminal list and end up in prison.

Posted by: mandible claw at June 4, 2008 12:08 AM

Oiao makes a good point, too. What the DUmmies are too stupid and/or stoned to take into account is that the majority of the people whom they are planning on kidnapping have plenty of bodyguards on hand who I'd imagine would be fully within their rights to use lethal force if the person they've been hired to protect is threatened by people like the DU douchebags.

Posted by: Adam at June 4, 2008 3:48 AM

Oh please DU, come and get me too, I hope you can hit better than "center of mass" at 200 yards because I'm proficient out to that range. Y'all have a wonderful day!.

Posted by: antne at June 4, 2008 6:05 AM

How about the citizens arrest of moonbats and the demacratic underground and how about the citizen arrests of all draftdodging liberals and theres certianly plenty of those who deserve to get life like AL GORE and BILL CLINTON

Posted by: Birdzilla at June 4, 2008 8:33 AM

Just hand them your card which lists the average succesful lawsuit for false arrest as being over $3 million per arrest.

Posted by: Don L at June 4, 2008 12:11 PM

I'm certain that Secret Service will not stand by while persons of dubious santity accosts their charge. Lawsuits will be the least of their problems.

Posted by: James F McEnanly at June 4, 2008 8:36 PM

I wonder what the response of the media and the police would be if a right-wing web site encouraged conservatives to assault and kidnap Barack Obama and Harry Reid.

Posted by: Jay at June 4, 2008 11:39 PM

I hope they do it. Its an opportunity to punch one of them in the throat and then have them arrested for assault! LOL

Carry a revolver (I do),then you don`t leave any shell case`s lying about with you`re prints on them.Deffenitely load with hollow points,or if you got a mean streak, use bird shot aimed at their face.They wont be seeing anyone else to grab for awhile, if ever again. Good hunting.
