This article is obviously about denigrating anyone who protests against the actions of the Federal Reserve.  It mentions Ron Paul, the Tea Party groups, and militias who might target the Fed during civil unrest.  For example, in one paragraph, the article's author talks about Ben Bernanke's quantitative easing program.  At the end of the paragraph in parentheses it says"See pictures of the Tea Party."  That doesn't logically flow.  The article is telling Americans to forget their First Amendment rights and just meekly accept what the Fed does.
