IT LOOKS LIKE ANARCHY
A videographer and citizen reporter who films under the name Politadick captured the action at Wasilla Middle School, as several police officers stood by while protesters occupied, disrupted, and essentially took over the Wednesday meeting of several legislators who were in Wasilla, where the governor called the second Special Session:
Questions remain about why Wasilla police allowed the front doors of the school to be barricaded by protesters who chained themselves to the doors, endangering the people inside, who arrived through a side entrance.
The Legislature is split in two, with two thirds of the elected officials meeting in Juneau, and one third meeting in Wasilla. Both sides claim to have the State Constitution on their side as it pertains to the location of the second Special Session.
Save Our State, a loose coalition of groups that has not been transparent about its funding or core organizers, is the apparent parent organization that this group of anarchists is working under. It’s believed that Save Our State is led by Vince Beltrami of the AFL-CIO, the National Education Association, the ACLU, the Alaska Center for the Environment, and other groups who are proxies for the Alaska Democratic Party. But there are others whose financial support might surprise Alaskans.
The interesting thing about the video is that the legislators were polite, unfazed, and handled themselves with decorum, as did the conservatives present in the audience.
These protesters were not Wasilla residents. These were from Anchorage and possibly from out of state.
