Remember the people who were going to “recreate ’68” at the Democratic National Convention this year? They got 300 at one demo and “several dozen” at another — and that probably included the media crews and the FBI infiltrators.
According to CBS4 Denver:
Anarchists And Police Clash In Downtown Denver
Anarchists and police clashed in downtown Denver during a march downtown.
CBS4 photographer Mark Neitro reported tear gas had been fired.
Approximately 300 people were participating in the protest. The demonstrators were caught in a barricade on 15th Street.
Maybe they don’t have the numbers that we radical hippie boomers had back in our day — after all, their lefty parents have aborted half their cohort into oblivion. Or did they maybe run out of rolling papers and blow?
Activists try to ‘levitate’ Denver Mint
Several dozen anti-war activists held hands and shouted “Love, Peace and Justice” during a stunt to “levitate” the Denver Mint on Monday, shake out its money and redistribute the wealth.
The group Recreate 68 wanted to circle the Mint on the opening day of the Democratic National Convention in homage to the 1967 protest of the Vietnam War when demonstrators sought to levitate the Pentagon.
In truth, protesters at the Mint only made it halfway down one block, the quarters that showered the ground were made of plastic, and the group’s leader wore a starry, purple wizard’s hat and red robe.
“It’s just an old Halloween costume,” Mark Cohen of Recreate 68 said afterward.
