Communitarian Super Heroes!

This is not a prank story. It really happened.
Police alerted to 'superheroes' patrolling Seattle


Seattle police say a group of self-described superheroes have been patrolling the streets at night trying to save people from crime. They call themselves the Rain City Superhero Movement and say they're part of a nationwide movement of real-life crime fighters.

The national website -- cited in a police bulletin sent to Seattle officers Wednesday -- states

"a Real Life Superhero is whoever chooses to embody the values presented in super heroic comic books, not only by donning a mask/costume, but also performing good deeds for the communitarian place whom he inhabits."

Police say the "costume-wearing complainants" are lucky they haven't been hurt."

I don't know about you, but this story may be the first time we've found something referring to communitarian that just made us laugh. Sure hard to explain anti communitarianism in this context.

How bizarre that the neighborhood in the article is where we lived and started the ACL, back before anyone knew what communitarian places were. And it sounds weird but I doubt this brave masked crusader meant to say "whom" because he thinks a communitarian place is a person, I'm assuming he meant "which." I do wonder where he learned to use the word communitarian place. Maybe we should track him down and arrange a secret interview.

I know my 3 year old grandson would think it's a great idea! He plays Batman all the time.

Well duh, went and read their website and not laughing as much anymore. It's all tied to their belief in "community service." They're tools for the evolving collective... and that's not funny at all. So much for my looking at the brighter side of life. :)

I wonder if this is part of an intel propaganda push. I vaguely remember that there was some movie put out by Hollywood within the last year where a bunch of young adults do exactly what you describe. They decide to become "super heroes" with costumes and all (no guns were shown in any previews from what I recall).

Don't think for a second that DoD propaganda central, Hollywood, wouldn't be involved in helping set the stage.

They've got themes in the plots and story lines that they push. For instance, there's a recurring theme of space invaders. The Iron Mountain Report, which I absolutely take as real, and Von Braun, state that space invaders, environmental catastrophe, and economic catastrophe are ways of merging the disparate nations.

Thank you for bringing this report to our attention as I honestly believe it is propaganda. The ADL is closely linked with training cops these days, and they could no doubt disseminate propaganda through the force.

If they come up with an entertaining lie, the average person will be more likely to repeat it, even if they don't initially believe it, and the repetition alone eventually gives the lie, wheels of it's own. Tie that in with repetition from propaganda themes (hollywood flicks) and you've got a powerful attitude conditioning mechanism.

What wicked webs they weave...

The Superheroes's job description includes neighborhood: "Crime fighting patrols and/or reporting illegal actions to Police and Promoting social/environmental awareness."

In many places those "illegal actions" are violations of revised land use and other behavior modifications such as "noise." The promotion of awareness is the training program to teach locals to think globally (better stewards of the earth, enlightened citizens make WISE decisions, etc).

We must be taught to look to global leaders for answers and allow the "experts" to make all our local decisions. Who better to teach us our new Communitarian responsibilities to our rebuilt communities than adults dressed up like cartoon characters?

As one of those "dressed up like a cartoon" I can say that while we are many things, we are definitely not the puppets of anyone. We're as grassroots as it gets; there are those in our fold that help with everything from drug problems, violent crime, public awareness, and homeless outreach.

Granted, what do it I know? Maybe you can point out what global leader is encouraging people to buy food, water, and other supplies and then give them away to those in need, or to don bulletproof vests and break up muggings and drug deals.

I think it is more important to look at the majority of the people as the global leaders and experts as they deal with the hardest work on a regular basis. Change can only come from within. If global leaders are corrupting things then it makes sense that the kids will look up to the people who are doing good deeds instead, and most those doing good deeds are targetted by criminals for doing so, hence the costumes. Of course, that is just based on comic books :) I think its sad that the people dressed like comics seem to try to set better example than a lot of global leaders, perhaps there will be a day when people don't judge people based on appearance. Just like men and woman let eachother work together to run the USA, it is of all walks and types, that's what makes it so cool!
