ultimate josh & (GlobalPundit.Org) capture Alex Jones confronting Michelle Malkin at 'Recreate 68's 'Levitation of the Denver Mint', Aug.25, 2008 - DNC Denver Week.
Recreate 68 were a Yippie revivalist org that attempted to apply tactics of 'Guerilla/Street Theatre' and remind people of the "police riots" that occured in Grant Park, Chicago during the DNC in 1968.(the event itself brought us the 'Chicago 7/8 Trial' I always say 8 because I believe Bobby Seale should be included.
On this day, Alex Jones, radio host and curator of InfoWars.com spotted Michelle Malkin (former Fox News reporter) whom he had previously interviewed and confronted her about her book. Malkin was freelancing at the time, and Jones, I believe, capitalized on the poor turnout for the 'Levitation' ie: not even enough turned out to line up and surround 1/4 of the street on that block, let alone the entire Mint (Unlike the Yippies 'Levitation of the Pentagon'. The number of media was roughly equal to the number of protestors then add to camera phones and smartphones into the mix. Jones used his bullhorn like voice to use the opportunity to bring Malkin's 'The Case For Internment' and the somewhat questionable logic used to justify imprisonment of individuals, utilizing the fear that still exists from the 9/11 attack.
It could be said that Jones successfully used Yippee tactics way more successfully then the self designated neo Yippies did. As Yippee foundling Abbie Hoffman wrote,"Media is Free! Don't pay for commercials, make news!"
Michelle Malkin also successfully capitalized on the event - alleging, and helping the allegation propel - that Jones yell "Kill Michelle Malkin". As you'll see here, he did no such thing. But once the suggestion was out of the bag, it was too good for local Fox affiliates not to use - and Malkin made several media appearances, thus getting to promote her own freelance work.
Others caught as equally extensive video of the event, so amid all the other rumours of 'plants' and 'provocateurs' one may read about, you'll see some other related video content by other filmmakers. I suggest you do .
