Suppression of Dissent: The White House Manual




I've been stuffed into several "designated protest zones" in the past few years.

Now you, too, can read the effin manual for stifling dissent at presiduncial appearances. Go ahead. Download the heavily-redacted PDF.

Here are some interesting tidbits:

The formation of "rally squads" is a common way to prepare for demonstrators by countering their message. . . .

The squads should be instructed always to look for demonstrators. The rally squad's task is to use their signs and banners as shields between the demonstrators and the main press platform. If the demonstrators are yelling, rally squads can begin and lead supportive chants to drown out teh protestors (USA!, USA!, USA!). As a last resort security should remove the demonstrators from the event site. The rally squads can include, but are not limited to, college/young republican organizations, local athletic teams, and fraternities/sororities.


Hmmm... roaming bands of jocks looking for sly, undercover protesters? How do they recognize them? Unruly hair? Wrinkled clothing? Hairy legs? Gaydar? A mad twinkle in the eye? Maybe an obvious disgust at the sight of people cheering for the criminal leader of an atavistic, blood-drenched death cult?

That's true George. It applies equally to disguist felt towards those you represent who don't even like that you're their leader.

But you'll never listen will you.
