Jeanne Milliken Bonds, a blogger who covers state politics in North Carolina, has been accused by the NC chapter of Americans for Prosperity of colluding with the NC chapter of the NAACP to plan riots, mobs, and law breaking at the N.C. General Assembly. A "political bomb threat," is what their Twitter account accuses Bond and the NAACP of issuing.

The NAACP does have a civil disobedience action planned for Monday, May 6, at 5:30 p.m. and a rally and protest for Tuesday, May 7, at 7 p.m.. However, there have certainly been no calls for riots, and no rallies or protests have been scheduled during office hours at the N.C. General Assembly.

Here are tweets from AFP-NC's account tonight.

These Tweets from AFP-NC were sent out tonight (Sunday, May 5) about an NAACP civil disobedience action planned for Monday and a rally/protest planned for Tuesday.
Police and media have been notified of the accusations, intimidation, and dissemination of false threats of mob action.

Bonds is a political strategist and the former mayor of Knightdale, North Carolina, a suburb east of Raleigh. Her blog, Plain Talk Politics, is a much-read resource for political activities in North Carolina. She also broadcasts a radio program and vlog from the N.C. General Assembly.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
