G20 London Protests


Anarchists, Anti-capitalists, environmentalists and miscellaneous other protesters are rioting in London in conjunction with the G20 Summit that is taking place in London today. Protesters have stormed the Royal Bank of Scotland, breaking windows and entering the building. London police have been on heightened security in anticipation of these riots and have thus far been able to keep the crowds contained.

Riot police have been called in to help contain protesters in London. Video and photos are available at BBC.

While there is a potpourri of protesters, each group with their own agenda, a common thread seems to be hatred for the U.S.A. (and here we thought they would love us now that we have a new President!) and, as some signs suggest, they want to ‘Abolish Money’. Yeah, okay, that’s brilliant.

In some other developments today ….

Don Surber is reporting that charges against former Senator Ted Stevens have been dropped.

Ms. Underestimated notes that Morning Joe got emotional about Glenn Beck getting emotional. She’s got the video, of course.

Have you heard the news about Ann Althouse? She’s getting married …. to a commenter on her blog. There’s a really cute video of her being downright giggly about it.

If you are keeping up with the Haleigh Cummings, then you want to visit Art Harris’ blog, The Bald Truth. He’s got the latest and most comprehensive coverage of the missing child case. Apparently, her father is denying that he’s got a drug problem. Harris has the video.

Over at Ace of Spades HQ you can find out everything you wish you didn’t have to know about Harold Koh, Obama’s choice for the State Department legal adviser. The fact that he supports Sharia Law is really all you need to know, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg with this guy. I just find myself wondering if its Obama’s intent to throw out the U.S. Constitution all together.

Is the Obama administration firing the board of directors of GM? Find out at Hot Air. Stop the ACLU wonders why Obama and the democratic Congress aren’t getting rid of the UAW union chief as well.

Over at Little Green Footballs, the lizardoid army is reporting that the Obama administration is ‘going to seek a seat on the UN Human Rights Council, next to such exemplars of human rights as China, Saudi Arabia, and Cuba.’

Meanwhile, back in London the news of the G20 London protests and riots is still breaking. It seems there is a lot of twittering going on along with the protesting. It seems to be a sign of the times.

The Wall Street Journal has a rundown of the various groups protesting today. Just to make sure you know who is who and don’t get those silly rioters all confused. After all, an anarchist and a financial fool.

Here’s one of the latest videos of the London riots.
