David McKay and Bradley Crowder are friends from Midland, Texas. They start following Brandon Darby who started Common Cause after Katrina. Brandon is angered by the brutality and the callousness of the authorities during the crisis and frustrated by the scrutiny of Homeland Security. Under Brandon's militant leadership, they plan actions against the 2008 Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minnesota. Much of this documentary comes from McKay and Crowder after they got arrested. Shockingly, Brandon Darby is revealed to be the FBI informant.
It is very possible that Darby entrapped these guys into the scheme. It's even more possible that the government is ruthless in its prosecution. Nevertheless, it's not so simple to root for these guys. At the end of the day, they were involved. This is more of a warning to all those would-be revolutionaries. It is interesting that Brandon Darby has gone full Breitbart which only shows the thin barrier between anarchist Marxist revolutionaries and conspiracy-obsessed right-wingers. The two extreme ends of the political spectrum are a lot closer than most people think.
