By midnight tonight the NYPD will probably have arrested about 2,000 protesters since the start of the Republican National Convention. I've been reading about some of these groups on the net. One group, the Ruckus Society has set up a text alert system in order to gather protesters quickly in a particular location. Some of these groups are pretty well organized for "anarchists". Isn't being organized antithetical to the anarchist's philosophy? More evidence that you have to be a hypocrite to be an extreme leftist.
On a side note, a former Ruckus Society member named Zack Exley is the Director of Online Communications for the Kerry/Edwards campaign. Exley has also worked for Moveon.org. You can learn more about Ruckus and Mr. Exley in this excellent column by Lowell Ponte.
