Chicago police stand by as anarchists threaten hotel, ALEC


CHICAGO – Anarchists ran wild through the streets of downtown Chicago on May 1, the traditional day for radicals and social misfits to protest anything related to personal property or capitalism.

A group of about 50 black-clad protesters – including one carrying a “F–K WORK” banner – descended on the Palmer House Hilton Hotel to lodge a threat against the hotel and free market group ALEC, which will be holding its annual meeting there later this year.

A video obtained by EAGnews captured the scene.

“Open season!” one protester yelled as they approached the hotel. They then discussed hanging a banner from the hotel’s awning.

Hotel security blocked the entrance and told the meatheads to “take the mask off.” Most were wearing Guy Fawkes masks or bandanas over their faces.

The crowed then engaged in the Occupy Wall Street-style “mic check” routine of the group repeating what one individual shouts. (How conformist!)

Anarchists-ALECThey referred to the American Legislative Exchange Council, or ALEC, as a group of fascists. ALEC is a free market group that has emerged as the scapegoat for leftists and radicals.

“If you allow ALEC to meet at your hotel, we will shut you down,” they yelled.

“ALEC is not welcome in a working class city,” they said.

Proud that his minions were following his chants, the leader then began tossing around his bottle of Gatorade, a product he purchased from the multinational corporation PepsiCo.

“Shut down ALEC!” they yelled.

“We’ll be here with thousands more people in August,” one vowed. “We’ll multiply.”

Will the police do anything then?
