Paranoia Strikes Deep

All Posts, News

The Alabama Fusion Center in Montgomery issued the following bulletin, which seems to describe the Panopticon State’s worst biker menace nightmare, on July 11. This is what your tax dollars buy. This is what homeland security means.

“On 10 July, 2014 a Lee County Alabama Law Enforcement Official received an anonymous phone call in reference to the Hells Angels MC and other 1% MCs bonding together to target Law Enforcement MCs. The caller stated she overheard a biker conversation stating that they were going to make Law Enforcement MCs remove their three piece patches. The bikers stated that if Law Enforcement MCs resisted, that they would be shot on sight. The caller stated that this would occur within the next week and that the Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs (OMGs) are planning a ride that will begin in Jacksonville, Florida and proceed into Alabama and Georgia. The source also stated that the OMGs would not be targeting the Blue Knights MC as they do not wear a three piece patch. (Note: Some chapters of the Blue Knights wear a three piece patch,)

“The caller advised that this threat is retaliation for an off duty police officer (Iron Order MC member) killing a Black Pistons MC member at Nippers Bar in Jacksonville, Florida on 28 June, 2014.

“Be advised that this is a single source reporting from an individual who has not yet been vetted whose reliability is unknown.

“Anyone with additional information regarding similar activity within your area of responsibility is asked to contact Alabama Fusion Center, 334-517-2660.”

The bulletin was distributed nationally.

    @UnaffiliatedObserver – I was being sarcastic. I know what you meant.

    I do not think you are correctly registering my sentiments and concatenated observations. It is not a devolvement into secular eschatology. It is simply a pragmatic observation and recognition of existential political determinism as it manifests itself these days.

    I see a regrettable proportion of the governing strata of the United States succumbing to a normalcy bias approaching arrogance where historic assumptions of personal sanctity have previously existed, but in fact no longer hold sway.

    I do not think, absent credible threats of imminent harm to others, that even the most opinionated posting on a news site is likely to trigger classification of “terrorist” or interventional devotion of organizational resources in the meat world. Mere classification as an “extremist” is nothing impressive. That’s a political appellation, and not a particularly informative or actionable one.

    There is also an actionable distinction between politically charged and upsettingly frank observations, and open threats. If Mr. John Q. Public posts on an internet forum (or states in public or private) that Congressman Smith might get shot if he votes (or does not) vote a certain way, that’s credible and properly actionable.

    When I observe that concentrating and outraging abuses of any human population have, historically speaking, typically resulted in official representatives of the State power being murdered in asymmetric manner by the revolutionaries of the day, it’s not a threat. It’s simply an observation.

    Please note that it is also, historically speaking, somewhat ridiculous to assume that any man or woman that is determined to violently assault the structure of the State, would be concerned about the affixing of an additional political label. A member of the Klu Klux Klan is not going to be all that interested in the dramatic gasps of the lowly informed as “hater” is added to “racist”. An operative of the Islamic State in Laboue is not going to be perturbed or dissuaded by being characterized as a “dog of al-Ordoni” as he goes about his greater effort.

    Sticks and stones. In the meantime, those who seek power best remember that sitting on bayonets is uncomfortable, as was said by someone in all likelihood much brighter and unquestionably more daring than they.

    I do not expect to see a finding of unlawful enemy combatant status, if that is what you mean by actionable. I do not imagine that posting anti-government, racist, or “homophobic” comments will bring the drones.

    On the other hand, the DOJ would dearly love to decimate the MCs. To attempt that, they need long-running operations that are costly. In the sense of providing justification for operational budgets, the ‘terrorist’ label is very actionable.

    Rebel has documented one such provocative operation at the link below, and a sober conversation follows:

    Based on the comments, it is clear that some among this site’s audience have a firm grasp on the cost of posting the wrong views in a public forum.

    I also don’t have a sense that there is widespread support to “violently assault the structure of the state.”

    Perhaps I am mistaken, but I just don’t see a large scale uprising on the horizon. Instead, I expect ongoing efforts to imprison those deemed resistant, or otherwise undesirable, and I expect those efforts to continue for decades.

    @UnaffiliatedObserver – “Based on the comments, it is clear that some among this site’s audience have a firm grasp on the cost of posting the wrong views in a public forum.”

    There is a difference between “criminal threats” and “wrong views”. We both know what criminal threats are. They are specifically definable, and can be traced to specific statutes.

    There is no such thing as “wrong views” in a free nation constructed on the principle that protection of the most offensive speech itself is a critical component of freedom and an inherent birthright of Man.

    “I also don’t have a sense that there is widespread support to “violently assault the structure of the state.””

    I did not argue such. Please try to follow. I stated that those who hold that intent, are not influenced in their momentum, trajectory, or kinetic potential by being labeled as one thing or another. I said nothing about widespread support for violent State overthrow.

    Labels like “hater”, “racist”, “extremist”, “terrorist” etc. no longer carry any effectual freight, primarily due to ridiculous overuse.

    “Perhaps I am mistaken, but I just don’t see a large scale uprising on the horizon.”

    Because it doesn’t work that way. Violent overthrow of the State is not a traffic accident, it’s death by sepsis. The dramatic moments of history are what we remember, but they are only the tip of what we see.

    A good way to think about it is to compare the hours of effort. Setting up a position, sighting in a rifle, blowing a tyrant’s head off his shoulders may be the work of an hour or three.

    Planning the event – another five hundred hours. Establishing the supporting intelligence network and preparing the successor puppet – another ten thousand hours. Forming the structure of the shadow state to fall into immediate place – another thirty thousand hours. Building the relationships of trust and allegiance at all levels of the insurgent movement – three hundred thousand hours. Developing the ideology and moving it through the population – never ends.

    The question you ask, UnaffiliatedObserver, is not just whether there’s a man with a rifle making plans for next Tuesday. Of course there is. There’s always a lone idiot or fool or dreamer or psychopath with a rifle and a plan. And yes, that man must be protected against, but he’s only one end of the challenge spectrum.

    The question instead is whether hours are being burned on the groundwork. I will simply say that any State power, whether benevolent or tyrannical, is fooling itself if it thinks those hours are not.

    “Instead, I expect ongoing efforts to imprison those deemed resistant, or otherwise undesirable, and I expect those efforts to continue for decades.”

    Decades? You really think that swords will be beaten into plowshares, and the lion will lie down with the lamb? That Men will forswear using the power of the State to enforce injustice in order to perpetuate personal gain?

    That’s a dramatic picture you paint of political assassination, but I see no relation to the subject at hand.

    The question of federally fabricated crime, and how those operations come about, is far more germane for discussion here, so I’ll stick to that.

    The information below will not come as a surprise to anyone who has been in the MC world for any significant time, but it might surprise other readers.

    After 911, the machinery of law enforcement turned its withering gaze on American Muslims. The following decade produced a number “domestic terrorism” cases that gave pause to many people who don’t understand how American law enforcement works, including the Human Rights Institute at Columbia Law. In July they produced the following report:

    As has been reported by a number of journalists, and as is well known to many participants here, law enforcement expends significant effort creating crime they can prosecute. HRW noted:

    ‘All of the high-profile domestic terrorism plots of the last decade, with four exceptions, were actually FBI sting operations…’
    p. 21

    HRW also found that the targets of these prolonged and costly sting operations were selected based on statements they made. This is a repetitive theme in the report (and will, undoubtedly, ring true for anyone who has sifted through the “evidence” a CI procures at the direction of law enforcement):

    ‘In the 13 sting cases we examined closely, paid informants and law enforcement officials relied on various political or religious indicators to determine the extent to which a target was a potential threat.’
    p. 23

    ‘… informants probed their targets’ opinions on politically sensitive and nuanced subjects, sometimes making comments that appeared designed to inflame the targets. If a target’s opinions were deemed sufficiently troubling, officials concerned with nascent radicalization pushed the sting operation forward.’
    p. 23

    ‘In several cases we examined, political and religious views often appear to have been the primary “predisposition” leading authorities to conduct prolonged sting operations in which the authorities played a significant, if not leading, role in planning and financing the ultimate plot…’

    In summary of the above, the ideology one espouses, particularly when giving voice to that ideology on public forums, is very consequential in our present environment. It is not at all meaningless.

    Given recent push back on muslims as targets, and long standing pressure from various groups to focus on patriots and “bigots”, the DOJ has recently announced a shift in targeting. (I’ll use the SPLC and ADL as sources below. The Google cache links are for those who would rather not hit their servers directly.)

    “We must also concern ourselves with the continued danger we face from individuals within our own borders who may be motivated by a variety of other causes from anti-government animus to racial prejudice,” Holder said.

    Holder specifically referenced racial prejudice in addition to anti-government animus. Considerable effort has been expended in recent years to link the MC world to racism and bigotry as tightly as possible. The ADL summarizes in this report:

    It should come as no surprise that ADL’s crowning evidence was contrived by law enforcement. Law enforcement is quite comfortable creating an environment of bigotry that will justify future expenditures on their own operations. The ADL also seems to have no qualms in that area.

    Gratuitous bigotry is, thus, valuable to law enforcement. When I see it, I simply assume the commenter is either working with law enforcement or a useful idiot. In either case, the end result is the same.

    I’ll end the conversation with that. Life has become busy for me lately.

    Dear Mag,

    What did I say, copy and paste motherfucker…

  7. UnaffiliatedObserver Says:

    Apologies, pananamaa.

    I linked the wrong comment ID.

    This was my intended reference on the gratuitous bigotry comment:

  8. panamaa Says:

    Dear Unaffiliated Observer,

    I’m going to ignore what I said earlier and address you..

    I have no Idea what your intent here is but I’m not afraid of people like you.. I’ve got nothing to hide,I’m an open book. I’ve run across people like you my whole life.. They hide behind corners and peek out every once in a while and fuck with people because it makes them feel good about themselves, make them feel like their superior..I live my life as I see fit and I don’t worry about little people like you but as I say, I’ve got nothing to hide so let me tell you a little about myself.

    I’m a Licensed Professional, I’ve got a college degree, I’ve operated a business for the past 30 years. My old lady is an attorney, her field of practice is Constitutional Law and she’s damn good at it . We live 5 doors down from a Federal Judge I consider a friend and I don’t use that word lightly. He’s a cool guy. He considered a liberal because he actually believes in the Constitution and he doesn’t automatically believe or except everything people like YOU and your buddy’s tell him.

    What do you do or should I say, what did you do for a living Unaffiliated Observer, oh, let me guess , bust kids that hang on the street corner, who are holding a bit of dope and send them away for five years or so? Or are you one of the ones that hang around in the bathrooms and bust the gays.. I don’t think you have enough intelligences to do much else. No computer to copy and paste from on the streets…

    Your gratuitous bigotry comment is right on. I am a bigot about people that try to be what their not, kind of like you Unaffiliated Observer. I’m bigoted towards you and people like you, you and ipod and qball because your not real.. You try to impress people you admire, but in fact, really are afraid of..

    So, in closing, if I want advice about what you claim to know so much about, I have people I can ask other than you. Other than that, if I want any shit off of you, I’ll wipe it off my boot….

    No respects what so ever…

    Dear Rebel, and all,

    Sorry for the long rant but I can’t stand pompous assholes like him..


  11. panamaa Says:

    And, Unaffiliated Observe…, Your 2nd copy and paste ( not the first one you bigot), (paste is in no way gratuitous bigotry, that, you asshole, is in fact, down right contempt..

    Keep on though, I’m thinking it outta take you about two or three days to find enough stuff on the internet to make you next bullshit post so you can thrill and enlighten us once more…

    No respects, no regards..

  12. panamaa Says:

    Unaffiliated Observe,
    Just pretend I don’t exist.. That would be better for the both of us. I really don’t want to be a part of your conversations. Their are plenty of post’s here you can analyze if that’s what, as it seems, gets you off……

  13. UnaffiliatedObserver Says:


    I do apologize for the wrong comment ID. That was not my intention and the error degraded my message.

    I have friends who address each other in Hebrew. They hold a considerable variety of worldviews, so I draw no particular conclusion from the use of the language. (I realize you will probably reject this, but it is the truth.)

    I am not now, and never have been, employed in law enforcement. I have also never been affiliated with any MC, and certainly not IO.

    I rather like our Constitution, and I hope we start using it again soon.

    More to the point, I actually agree with your underlying message (regarding IO), but I think that delivering that message wrapped in homophobic slurs negates the strength of the position.

    Perhaps your wife can advise you on a more effective presentation.

    As I said above. “Just pretend I don’t exist.. That would be better for the both of us. I really don’t want to be a part of your conversations.

    Please heed my request.. Trust me.. Mr. Dallas..

    Let’s see, a whole MONTH has passed & still none of the dire acts have
    taken place. Who da thunk!

    And UnaffiliatedObserver, Remember when your opinion was asked?

    Why don’t you waste band-width on some other site where it’s appreciated?
    Or have you run out of such places because your cut&paste shit is not
    wanted either? Is it that you think NO ONE ELSE is smart enough to find
    this really important gobbeldeegook you inundate everyone with? You should remain an OBSERVER.
    RESPECTS to the REAL
