Enter the Blue Bloc
They dress alike.

They often hide their faces behind masks.

They even hide their identities.

They are armed, well armed.

They have demonstrated an irrefutable willingness to utilize their weapons.

They travel in groups. They sometimes travel alone.

They act in groups. They sometimes act alone.

They interpret or ignore laws as they see fit.

They are infiltrators and provocateurs.

They watch your every move.

They have been terrorizing certain communities since, well" forever.

They are a clear and present threat to nearly everyone's freedom.

They are the Blue Bloc.

Made up of the local, state, and federal law enforcement (sic) officers and agents, the Blue Bloc possesses a wide array of taxpayer subsidized, military-style weaponry -- including biological (pepper spray) and sonic (LRAD) -- in the name of taking on an enemy (sic) armed (sic) with signs, chalk, musical instruments, cameras, and mobile libraries and kitchens.

The Blue Bloc is ever ready to unleash a coordinated, relentless assault on the sacred tenets of the First Amendment -- and its members are deeply conditioned to believe in this often unlawful mission.

"Disparate groups are being conflated, across ideological and tactical divides, and presented as a united 'threat,'" writes Will Potter, thus explaining how the FBI "creates terrorism threats by directly training agents to believe they exist."
