Agencies warn of possible anarchist activity at conventions

Washington (CNN) - Law enforcement officials are concerned about possible violence by anarchist extremists at the upcoming Republican and Democratic national conventions, according to an intelligence bulletin prepared by the FBI and Department of Homeland Security.

The bulletin, which was obtained by CNN, says that anarchists could try to use improvised explosive devices.

    Hmmm, so much for tolerance for differing opinions and beliefs. Never fails to amuse the stuffing out of me when Libs scream "don't be a hater!" to conservatives when they themselves are the guilty party. I'm sure this will send them down on me; whatever. Unruly children, no matter what their age.

    The only difference is the anarchist will be inside the convention center at DNC convention and outside the RNC convention center.

    Does this mean someone is trying to plant the idea of anarchists out there so that this is who can be blamed "if" something DOES happen?

    The anarchist and extremists are already all at the GOP convention in Tampa. They also include extreme hypocrites, liars, demagogues, tax-evaders, robbers, saboteurs … But FBI and Department of Homeland Security has been a sleep to check on them…
    The danger of that is not nearly as great in Charlotte. Though hopefully no Republican will show up and make use of his “second amendment right” and cause tragedy because he wants “his country back”….

    Well maybe while in tampa ill be running my video camera and capturing the faces of those "anarchist" liberals...then we'll identify them and maybe the cops will give them a visit and they will find their anonymity will not protect them from the consequences of their stupidity. That would be fun now wouldn't it.

    The republicans will plant a few hooligans and swear they are democrats.

    Just like Romney flew in his own republican blacks to cheer him in front of the all-black crowd of NAACP.
