We now have a clearer picture of what the “occupy” movement has planned for their version of a new America… and it’s a society that is riddled with drug crimes, sexual assaults, arguments, third world conditions and racism. Proudly solidified … Continue reading
While the Tea Party has been portrayed as angry mobs on the verge of violence by the mainstream press, in reality you’ll never find so many law abiding, peaceful people in one setting. Compare that to how somehow the MSM narrative has managed to overlook this string of crimes and other inconvenient truths about the OWSers.
For that matter, the left had such a difficult time finding evidence supporting their claims about the Tea Party that they had to start planting people with fake signs. This had the dual effect of bolstering the Tea Party’s credentials while indicting the MSM, confident that any reporter would be so happy to find a sign that fit their narrative that they wouldn’t be bothered with such pesky steps like verifying that their source was an actual Tea Partier.
A New York judge has upheld the city’s dismantling of the Occupy Wall Street encampment, saying that the protesters’ first amendment rights don’t entitle them to camp out indefinitely in the plaza.
Police cleared out the protesters in a nighttime sweep early Tuesday. The judge upheld the city’s effective eviction of the protesters after an emergency appeal by the National Lawyers Guild.
Back in 2000 or 2001 I read a piece in Newsweek or TIME that discussed flyers whining that they didn’t have enough storage space in the overhead compartment bins on airplanes. I remember writing a letter to the editor saying that the only reason that people had the luxury of being able to whine about such things was that flying had become so safe that flyers could shift their focus to the more mundane. Then of course September 11th came along and people started focusing on the basic reason planes exist… to get them from point A to point B in one piece.
The Occupy Wall Streeters are just like the people whining about the overhead compartments. These are the people who enjoy the fruits of the capitalist system in which they live – iPhones, Starbucks, Facebook, Twitter, Twinkies, Nikes, ATMs, MSNBC, not to mention adequate food, shelter, and transportation, yet want to destroy that very system.
After the Oakland Chamber of Commerce put out the word that businesses owners are now reluctant to hang around with the Occupy Oakland’s particularly violent and destructive exercise in “Occupy Everything free speech”, the city is now in full damage control mode, sending letters of apology out to the areas affected by the mob’s unruly rule, fueled by a city’s reluctance to enforce laws against the movement.
After a week of broken windows, fires in the street, graffiti… all compounding an already tough area for business appeal due to economic times… city officials are set to make the rounds to implore business owners to stay – hoping they can appease the skeptical 99% who are now wondering if their law abiding rights are second to the rights of non law abiding mobs.
It’s quite humorous to watch the media spin the recent violence from the Oakland occupiers:
“Oakland Police Clash with Fringe Protesters.”
Fringe? I think not.
