Today government informant Brandon Darby, along with other Tea Party assholes, wrestled an editor of the Earth First! Journal and other immigrant solidarity activists out of a Tea Party conference in Orlando featuring pro-border, anti-immigrant Sheriff Joe Arpaio from Maricopa County, Arizona.
Ana Rodriguez, an immigrant activist and editor with the Earth First! Journal, was dragged across the floor of the conference center. She had this to say:
“I got thrown out of an Arpaio Tea Party event by Brandon Darby and all I got was this lousy rug burn on my ass!”
Another activist also entered the conference handing out this flyer. They too were kicked out, after having a black sheet thrown over them and also being physically forced from the Orlando Airport Marriott conference center, also by Brandon Darby.
It seems that Darby, who entrapped two young activists during the 2008 RNC and put them in prison, is now the pseudo-populist right wing’s goon of choice. Being that he’s on a speaking tour around the country, the Earth First! Journal is offering some incentive to greet him properly in your town. We will give a free year’s subscription to anyone who delivers his just desserts.
