After being in the national spotlight the ANSWER Coalition office was deluged with racist hate calls supporting the Anaheim police. At the same time, right-wing websites began an internet-based attack campaign against the ANSWER Coalition labeling us “outside agitators.” Hours later the office was broken into and ransacked.
On Monday, the ANSWER Coalition was highlighted in the mass media for our role supporting the protests in response to the outrageous police attack in Anaheim. ANSWER placards and signs were highly visible in media photos and video. ANSWER volunteers were interviewed by mainstream media outlets.
That night, the ANSWER office in Los Angeles was broken into, ransacked and robbed. All of our computers, ten total, were stolen, in addition to all of our sound equipment and our bullhorns — the things essential to organizing and conducting protest actions. We had many other losses too and our files were ransacked.
At this point, we cannot say with certainty the nature of this attack—but we believe the events leading up to it are noteworthy. After being in the national spotlight the ANSWER Coalition office was deluged with racist hate calls supporting the Anaheim police, who killed two unarmed men in 24 hours and inflicted so much brutality against the community. At the same time, right-wing websites began an internet-based attack campaign against the ANSWER Coalition labeling us “outside agitators.” Hours later the office was broken into and ransacked.
Talk about an over inflated sense of self-importance!
And we know that the United States—and southern Kalifornia in particular—has a long history of police attacks on the offices ofprogressive organizations, with the intent of disrupting or sabotaging their organizing efforts during key political crises kommunist agitators with the intent of preventing them of spreading their filth of collectivism.
Despite this attack, we are not deterred. We still managed to mobilize for the mass action at the Anaheim City Council meeting, and will be marching in Downey this Saturday against the police murder of Mike Nida.
However, our work has been severely disrupted. We are asking for your help to so that we can replace our equipment and rebuild our office. Please help us so that we can continue mobilizing actions against police brutality, the war in Afghanistan, budget cuts, and as we work to build a movement for justice and equality.

I must point out komrades, if one real indeed wants to be equal, then one would not need a bull horn. How dare one person be heard more clearly in the kollective. That would be unfair.
Your solidarity and support through this attack is critical to continuing our work, and is very much appreciated. Please make as generous a donation as you can. Standing together we can make a difference.

On a side note komrades, check out who this dick-suck 'Mike' is:

This could have been the work of drug-crazed Rush listeners (do they call themselves Dittoheads?) desperate to get money for more Oxy or some other type of pills.
By the way, is somebody's "k" key on his keyboard stuck?

Historically, "incidents" like this have turned out to be done by the alleged victim to smear their enemies...especially on the Left Coast. Quite a few "hate crimes" involving property damage led right back to the 'victim' once investigated.
Of course, if damaging documents from their files start appearing in the conservative press, I could be wrong.
