The morning of April 19, 1775 saw soldiers of the British Army arriving at the Massachusetts town of Lexington. Their mission was to seize and destroy militia weapons and ammunition, but the local militia, known as Minutemen, stood on Lexington Green, awaiting their arrival. During the stand off, a someone fired a shot, which led the British troops to fire at the colonial militia. The Minutemen dispersed, and the British headed toward nearby Concord.
At the Concord North Bridge, a small group of militia battled a force of British soldiers. At this point, the British commander decided to retreat back toward Lexington, as it became evident that more and more Minutemen were arriving from all of the local villages and farms.
During this retreat, the British kept to the road, while the American farmers fired at them from behind trees, walls and any obstacle they could find. When the British force returned to Lexington, they were met by a relief column. The combined British units then headed for Boston. The Minutemen continued to harass them the whole way.
By the end of the day, British casualties numbered 273, while the colonials suffered only 94, 18 of which fell during the initial clash at Lexington. The American Revolutionary War had begun.

I wonder if there is anything that can ever happen that will not be a false flag? Perhaps there are just some unstable people out there to begin with?
Why must we minimise the potential damage the average crazy can do and blame the gub-ment.
Some thread said that the latest goldman sacks fraud was a false flag to pass bank reform....its like...ya, wtf, no such thing as greed and asshattery by anyone except for the government.
I wonder if there is a conspiracy out there that shows people can actually go locally crazy by cultist attitudes that turn on the common people...do we have to blame everything on some guy we just got done electing?

Have them find some people on the semi retarded side and get them to get violent, and now you have a reason to crack down on everyone or at least create some hysteria they could parade on MSM. Just a possibility.

Good thing the government is clearly represented here on ats. else some people may get the wrong impression.
It certainly looks like the government is preparing another false flag attack to demonize the patriot movement and the real Tea Party movement (the Republican hijacked Tea Party is not a threat and will follow orders this November and vote for establishment candidates).
It is no mistake Bill Clinton’s demonization campaign is timed to coincide with the anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing. Is it a prelude to yet another false flag attack to be blamed by the government and its Mockingbird corporate media on those of us opposed to an authoritarian federal government? False Flag Prelude?
