Local Richmond journalist Michael Paul Williams wrote a piece in today’s Richmond Times Dispatch discussing Senator Norment’s labeling of the Wingnut as armed terrorists. Williams draws some excellent connections between the communist Red Scare era of the 1950’s and current use of the term terrorist. It is great to have local critical journalism.

The only difference to note is that some of the statements he attributes to Mo were actual from the press release written by the entire Wingnut Anarchist Collective- which you can read in full on this website.

Read his column, “Lawmaker’s ‘Terrorist’ Claim Reckless” here: http://www2.timesdispatch.com/news/columnists-blogs/2012/mar/09/tdmet01-michael-paul-williams-lawmakers-terrorist–ar-1751932/

The Wingnut Anarchist Collective  is planning a Southern Barton Heights Halloween Party for Saturday October 30th from 3pm-dark in Yancey Street Park (at the corner of North Ave. And Poe St.)
The event will include pinatas, bobbing for apples, pin the tale on the black cat, mask making, face painting, and other spooky surprises. It will also be a potluck event- so if folks can bring a dish or non-alcoholic beverage to share that would be great!
We are also looking for someone who would like to DJ the event, to give us some spooky tunes to make it a super festive fun time!
Please contact the Wingnuts at 303 5449, wingnut_collective@yahoo.com

or 2005 Barton Avenue if you are interested in helping out with the event.

All ages and sober event!
