Last week Democrats resorted to mob tactics to shut down a bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks and upgrade standards in abortion clinics across the state. A source in the Texas capitol on Austin sends this along as the legislature’s second special session begins.

I’m not sure where to post this, but I.just spoke to my mom who was at the Occupy Wallstreet meeting.

They are planning a tactic where they call the police over and tell them that a targeted prolifer, typically someone who’s leading a group, has been harassing them.

Then both the police and the pro lifer are tied up and prevented from doing their respective jobs.

So my advice to everyone is to STAY AWAY from the other side so they can not use this tactic against us.

Filing a false report is a crime, and a waste of taxpayer money.

The tactic described is similar to a tactic known to be used by some of the left’s most odious elements, in which the police are called to the homes of conservatives on bogus accusations that the conservative is threatening his or her family, usually with a weapon. Erick Erickson and Patterico have been victims of SWAT attacks. SWAT attacks can be dangerous and even deadly, as local police adopt more military style weapons and tactics.

A Daily Kos poster has posted another potential strategy we may see in Austin this week. Pro-life supporters have launched a campaign that involves wearing blue, and the Koster has an idea to use that as a means of infiltration.

Might I suggest the protesters against this intrusion into the doctor patient relationship wear blue as well.

This should help ensure you are let in.

Take off the blue as soon as you get inside so you won’t be counted as one of them in videos and photos

Rebel. Even if you fail, even if we all fail, we will have asserted against the corporate forces of exploitation and death our ultimate dignity as human beings.

Both strategies involving lying to win.

Texans support the bill in question by about 62% and it passed during the first special session 19-10 in the Senate. If the rule of law prevails then the bill will pass.

"Rebel. Even if you fail, even if we all fail, we will have asserted against the corporate forces of exploitation and death our ultimate dignity as human beings."

From the Kos commenter is a quote from an anti-capitalism piece by Chris Hedges titled "Rise Up or Die."

Using it to defend Planned Parenthood's corporate "right" to kill kids is just so full of lefty logic.

Oh really.

Who is doing the death-ing in this case?

And how about letting the dead babies have a chance at getting to live out their "ultimate dignity as human beings?"

Expect violence. Expect fraud. And expect the Federal government to intervene on the side of the Left. There is no rule of law, and these are Democrats.

Vicious, ignorant children. The special irony here is that they can't see that Obamacare represents the greatest "intrusion into the doctor-patient relationship" in history.

Actually, protection orders WERE used as a tactic, ironically as an intimidation tactic, against blogger Brett Kimberlin. The convicted torrorist who went for him used protection orders to get his personal information, leading to both he and his wife losing their jobs when their employed got scared that a terrorist was coming after him.

Killing babies is very important to the left.

If you're going to try these tactics outside the safely Blue states, a capital city is the place to do it, especially those capital cities that wouldn't even be a dot on the map if they didn't have the star on the map. Since they are the seat of government they have lots of public employees who tend to be more left/liberal than the general population and they have the offices of all the interest groups and left/Democrat front groups with their activist staffs. Even in safely Red states, capital city governments tend Democrat. I don't know about Texas, but in Alaska while the State government is Republican and has been for a long time, most of the city governments are Democrat or at least lean left. Of course, Alaska is union and Texas isn't and that makes a real difference.

Unless the Texas Constitution requires that the Legislature have all sessions in the Capitol, this special session might be best held somewhere less friendly to lefties. Unless there are specific Constitutional or statutory notice requirements, I make give very, very short notice of convening the session and its location - and I might invite the Democrats at the very last moment if at all.

Art - We call Austin "Moscow on the Colorado". It is deep blue. Just chock full of moonbats. But once you get outside of the enclave there it is true Texas. In Texas the cities are blue - Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Austin, etc. The smaller cities are not - Ft Worth, Plano and all of Collin county, Wichita Falls, San Angelo, Galveston, etc.

As per MZK, I've always referred to Austin (full disclosure: I used to live and work there, for the state Attorney General's office) as "San Francisco with cow-chips".

And no-one has ever argued with that characterization.

I thought it was known as the San Fransisico of Texas. Of all of the cities for Glen Beck to choose to leave New York for....

Austin has grown into a city separate from the Capitol and the University of Texas. It's about the same size and mix of government/non-government as Columbus, OH. It definitely leans left, but so do the urban cores of almost all metropolitan areas. Both sides can bring in large crowds from the general area, but remember that large photogenic crowds of college students are harder to come by in the summer.

The big difference in Texas is being a legislator is a part time job in the Spring of odd numbered years. The Senate will pass the abortion bill and a few others ASAP and then the members of the legislature will leave Austin to get back to their real jobs. Not working is costing these guys enough to make them want to wrap this up and leave.

Don't these people realie they are in Texas? Texas operates a little differently than New York or Wisconsin. What worked in Wisconsin will work a little differently in Texas.

The left is at war with conservatives...I leave political parties out of this because basically most of the R's are on the side of big government and "law and order". Don't expect relief, don't expect the press, don't expect goodness from the opposition expect the worst sort of behavior. Don't be surprised be waiting for it.

Republicans and Democrats in D.C. and in state houses around the nation, have made almost everything against the law.

Republicans and Democrats in D.C. and in state houses around the nation have militarized civilian LEO's.

Now, we have one side using all of the above to demonize and attack the other. This means that black booted thugs are now busting down your doors in the middle of the night, destroying your home, shooting your dog and possibly shooting members of your family...just because of your political affiliation.

Welcome to police state America. Enjoy your stay.

It is, after all, your own creation.

Left and right, you elected -and keep re-electing- the people who have done this to America.

Sod off, Boner. Your schtick was tired the first time I heard it.

Problem is Crawfish, he ain't wrong.

Got anything constructive to add?

My take is we let the left have their evil. Make them own it. Personalize it. Do a reverse Alinsky on them.

In the wake of the Gosnell trial, you would think they would have some humility about provisions to improve the quality of the medical facility where abortions are performed.
