Authorities said the activities of Senakiewicz and Neiweem were unrelated to another bombing plot involving President Obama’s Chicago-based reelection campaign headquarters.
Three self-described anarchists were arrested Saturday after traveling from Florida to Chicago and allegedly plotting to attack Obama campaign offices, the home of Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel, and police stations. Molotov cocktails were allegedly involved.
The men have been identified as Brian Church, 22, of Fort Lauderdale; Jared Chase, 27, of Keene, N.H.; and Brent Betterly, 24, address unknown.
Their lawyers claim the accused men were patsies set up by authorities. “This is just propaganda to create a climate of fear,” defense attorney Michael Duetsch huffed.
Last week demonstrators led a “F*** the Police” protest action in Chicagoland as mask-wearing activists in black clothing carried communist and anarchist flags in hopes of winning the hearts and minds of Middle America. Leftists and union goons terrorized entire neighborhoods, provoking fisticuffs, creating makeshift barricades, dragging dumpsters into the streets, and upending garbage cans.
Less than a month ago several radicals were arrested in Cleveland after plotting to blow up a busy bridge over the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Self-described anarchists Douglas L. Wright, 26, Brandon L. Baxter, 20, and Anthony Hayne, 35, were charged with conspiracy and attempted use of explosive materials to damage physical property affecting interstate commerce. The other two plotters, Connor C. Stevens, 20, and Joshua S. Stafford, 23, were arrested and charged with similar crimes but were not identified as anarchists.
Wright and Baxter reportedly told an FBI informant that taking out a bridge would cause great financial distress. “Taking out a bridge in the business district would cost the … corporate big wigs a lot of money,” Baxter was quoted saying. The duo also talked about blowing up the NATO summit in Chicago, the upcoming Republican convention in Tampa, Florida, and a Cleveland casino, according to authorities.
Wright reportedly said previously that anarchists across the nation would eventually be “rioting and destroying” both Cleveland and Chicago. Cleveland would be reduced to “a pile of rubble and ashes” and Chicago would experience even more chaos, he was quoted saying.
None of this surprises Brandon Darby.
“On the Right we call out our crazies and marginalize them but on the Left they rally around them, attacking law enforcement and launching spin campaigns and doing everything they can to deify and humanize the perpetrator and to minimize the crime.”
“Maybe if the Left would stop defending such crazy actions … then we’d stop seeing such violent atrocities from their ranks,” Darby said.
