The family of Greg Baer, Bank of America executive, is located in a jurisdiction protected by the Montgomery County Police Department (MCPD), which responded promptly to a disturbance call from his neighborhood last weekend.
According to Corporal Dan Friz, an MCPD spokesperson in Rockville, Maryland, the department received a disturbance call from one of Baer’s neighbors at 4:10 pm last Sunday. Four MCPD units arrived at Baer’s Greenville Rd. address at 4:15 pm. At least two Metropolitan Police Department units from the nearby District of Columbia were already at the scene when they arrived.
Why? Because police cars attached to the Washington MPD’s Civil Disturbance Unit had escorted the SEIU protesters’ buses to Baer’s home. Such cross-jurisdictional escort activity is not uncommon for both departments according to Friz and Metro Police Department spokesperson Officer Eric Frost. Still, the District police did not inform their colleagues of what was about to happen in one of their Maryland neighborhoods.Source: Big Government (read the entire article)
I wonder how this story would have played out had it been a Tea Party planning to protest at the home of a Lefty Movie Star, Politician, or leader of a Lefty Non-Profit Group? Or perhaps the homes of SEIU leaders or donors?
The answer is that Tea Parties don't do this because it is an immoral violation of what America stands for. Ask yourself what you would do or how you would feel if 500 or so people decamped onto your property to protest where you worked, or actions you had taken at work that they disagreed with. This is nothing more than political terrorism meant to intimidate political opponents.
If this doesn't fit the very definition of terrorism, then there is no such thing.
