Ax (Sic) The 1% And Fight For Communism, Comrades!
No Angels, But Lots of Demons in Oakland on All Saints' Day
Despite the glorious, glowing, romantic and sentimental coverage of the OWS movement by the corrupt liberal media, a plurality of Americans view Obama’s Occupy Wall Street protest movement negatively. I have no doubt that OWS' approval numbers will continue to fall as the violence, rioting, port shutdowns, intimidation, vandalism, etc., grow.
A sign that the Occupy Wall Street movement isn’t the best long-term vehicle for Democrats to connect themselves with: A new Quinnipiac poll, showing a plurality of voters viewing the group unfavorably.
The poll, released today, show 30 percent of voters surveyed view the movement favorably, 39 percent unfavorably, with an additional 30 percent not hearing enough to have an opinion. It’s one of the first national polls to suggest voters are growing skeptical of Occupy Wall Street- and it comes as police have clashed with protesters in several cities. Previous national polls have shown a plurality of adults supporting the movement.
These numbers comes as Democrats, from the White House on down, have struck a decidedly populist tone in recent months, from President Obama calling on the wealthy to pay a higher share in taxes, Senate Democratic officials rallying behind the campaign of Elizabeth Warren, who has embraced the Occupy Wall Street movement, and House Democrats, who sent out a petition last month aimed at leveraging the Occupy Wall Street movement against the Republican Party.
As I have said repeatedly since #OccupyWallStreet's virgin protest, I wish the circus parade of freaks, anti-Semites, bare-breasted ladies, radicals, Pinkos with hardly an "average, hard-working, Middle-Class American" in sight a long life and much press...especially on local stations and also in "Flyover America" - the area of country inhabited by Americans that Progressives on both Coasts detest, despise, and consider to be racist, sexist, homophobic, Islamophobic, xenophobic, bigoted, inbred, snake-handling, dirt-eating, Bible-clinging, gun-worshiping, cousin-marrying, Confederate-flag-flying, and strange because they happen to like Mum, America, and Apple Pie.
Police arrested 27 #Occupy Portland protesters earlier in the week.
An #Occupy Portland protester pushed a police sergeant into a moving bus yesterday during a protest march against police violence.
Police made one arrest during the march. They said 30-year-old David Anthony Burgess shoved a police sergeant into a TriMet bus while it was moving, then dashed back into the crowd.
The sergeant suffered minor injuries and police later found Burgess after the march and arrested him. He was booked into the Multnomah County Jail, accused of assaulting a police officer, interfering with police, second-degree disorderly conduct and harassment.
...The groups united in solidarity and urged an end to what they call police violence.
Another successful rally against police violence. You just can't make this stuff up.
