It seems that the protests many people believe that are coming to Ferguson, Missouri, when the grand jury’s findings are released has gained a woman with a national reputation as a leader of rabble-rousing protests. Lisa Fithian earns $300 a day training unions and activist groups on tactics to use to take over the streets.
She has been arrested 80 to 100 times for taking part in protests. Her history of interactions with police department goes back to her youth where she was always doing something that brought their attention, such as starting a fire in a neighbor’s yard or bringing a knife to middle school. She won two awards at her high school: “Most likely to do things for the school” and also “Most likely to do things to the school.” She also created an underground newspaper, The Free Thinker, while a sophomore in high school.
She is one who seeks to create chaos and crisis moments. She believes that when pictures are taken or video is filmed showing police reactions to her trained tactics it will bring others to her cause. She also believes that when chaos and crisis reign that is when change is possible. She played an important role in the shutdown of the 1999 WTO meetings in Seattle.
She was a key planner of protests at Republican and Democrat national conventions in 2000 and 2004. In 2003, Fithian spent several weeks working with the InternationaI Solidarity MovementSM) — which actively cooperates with such terrorist entities as Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine — in the Palestinian cities of Jenin and Nablus. There, she acted as a human shield abetting ISM’s effort to prevent Israel from razing the homes of Palestinian extremists and terrorists.
So to put it all together Lisa Fithian is an anarchist, anti-captalist, anti-Israel, and more. I will post more about her when and if trouble starts in Ferguson. Until then watch this video of Brandon Darby from CPAC 2012 where he talks about the Red, Yellow and Green teams of protesters.
