Since my podcast is titled, 15 Minutes on Latin America, what do the anarchists have to do with that?
Jessica Sundin was a coordinator of the protests. In media reports she tried to distance the law abiding protest groups and herself from the anarchist group. However, a thorough review of the online record shows that the RNC Welcoming Committee was integral to the planning led by Sundin and Walker.
In one article on the “fight back” website Sundin describes a trip to Columbia [sic] to meet with the now deceased infamous FARC commander Raul Reyes as a representative of the “US solidarity activists”. Reyes was a Communist guerrilla fighter known for cocaine trafficking and kidnapping Americans. Saint Paul Police have alleged a kidnapping plot by the anarchists aimed at the RNC.
Sundin described the FARC leader who was convicted of the murders of over a dozen Columbian police officers as such “I enjoyed his warmth and humor. He had a friendly, round face, a quick smile, and surprisingly gentle hands.” Of his death she wrote “The criminal Colombian government and their U.S. accomplices should be called to pay for this cowardly and criminal attack.” The Republican Party strongly supports the government of Columbia in its’ fight against the FARC. Some experts consider anarchist groups to be based on communist ideals and fronts for communist activities.
Sundin’s personal web page hosted by a U o M server under the heading “My Stuff” links to communist websites. Under “My anti-war stuff” she links to a declaration from the “Islamic Jihad Army” in Iraq which was killing US troops at the time. It’s clear that she has posted these links in solidarity with the Islamic terrorist group. In another interview she remarked about her previous anti-war activities “We were inspired by the anti-globalism protests in Seattle and wanted to practice civil disobedience.” Those protests were marred by a violent anarchist rampage.
As you may remember, Gateway Pundit was in a bus that the anarchists attacked last Monday.
