“Occupy the RNC” Instructional Video Advises Firebombing Police Officers

Occupy the RNC

“ResistRNC,” a five day Occupy protest of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida this August, has some chilling new videos posted on their website that encourages horrific protestor violence towards police.

In a statement at the top of the action webpage, resistRNC says, “if you are looking for ideas to help you with your action planning, here are some helpful videos!”

In one of ResistRNC’s “helpful videos,” a young man is seen lighting a Molotov cocktail on fire, and then hurling the firebomb towards a group of police. The video is actually a mashup of a Jay-Z and Kanye West song in which the musical pair apparently celebrates their love of violence and police brutality with their new song “No Church In The Wild.”

A second video involving a packed athletic stadium, shows members of the crowd lighting fireworks and tossing burning torches onto the track towards individuals on the field, presumably police.

At the end of their “advice”, resistRNC concludes with the following encouragement: “You must visualize the possibilities to make it a reality.  Anything is possible… anything.  Happy Action Planning!”

What’s most appalling is that ResistRNC appears to be quite proud of their planned effort, even issuing a specific statement to any law enforcement officials whom may be investigating their efforts.

In a special “Notice to Law Enforcement Spying on Us,” ResistRNC writes, “We exist to provide information and facilitate logistics for people resisting the RNC. Don’t f**k with us.”

As dangerous and criminal as the movement may be, ResistRNC has received the endorsement of several prominent coalitions, including Occupy Wall Street, CODEPINK, and Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH Coalition.

The entire effort is a particularly chilling foreshadowing of what protestors might resort to at the RNC Convention in Tampa this August, and also demonstrates an appalling disregard for the safety of American law enforcement officials.
