"I am literally in tears over Obama's silence on the violence against OWS"
I guess the DUmmies still haven't figured out that the whole OWS movement has backfired on the Democrats bigtime. The REAL purpose of the OWS movement was the re-election of Obama. The One figured the protests against Wall Street would develop into a class warfare grudge against the EVIL Republicans. Of course, Obama himself has received more Wall Street money than any other candidate in history. However, what Obama didn't count on is the utter foolishness of the manipulated protestors whose violence, filth, disease, crime, drugs, public defecations, and general animalism turned the public strongly against them. So now Obama had his liberal mayor allies engage in a group conference to attempt a shutdown of the embarrassing OWS boomerang. However, the incredibly naive DUmmies still believe Obama is on their side with OWS. Yeah, like a lot of Russians 75 years ago were convinced that Stalin would shut down the Gulag system if he only knew about the abuses there. Get real, DUmmies. OWS just didn't work out for Obama and now he wants it SHUT DOWN pronto. A good example of DUmmie cluelessness on this matter is exemplified in this THREAD, "I am literally in tears over Obama's silence on the violence against OWS." So let us now watch the DUmmies bemoan the silence of Obama in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, noting that the closest WILLIAM RIVERS PITT has gotten to an OWS protest is being photoshopped into it in the pic above, is in the [barackets]:
I am literally in tears over Obama's silence on the violence against OWS
[I am literally in tears laughing over your extreme naivete, DUmmie nadine_mn.]
I am not normally someone who cries easily (despite my prior journal entry to the contrary) but talking to my husband tonight about the recent OWS evictions and destruction of property, the countrywide violence by the police against our own citizens, I just started to cry that our President has not denounced the brute force that has been directed at those protesting.
[Please, Mr. President. I beg you to denounce the brute force directed at the OWSers that you demanded take place.]
I am not saying he should co-opt the movement, I understand that people will disagree about the right to camp out (I believe for the record as long as its peaceful, they should be allowed to camp out in public parks), and I understand that with every protest there will be a few asshats who get violent just for the hell of it. But for crying out loud - how much more can we tolerate?
[I bet you can't tolerate the intolerable truth that it is OBAMA that now wants a shutdown of the OWS protests because the public has turned against it bigtime.]
But overall, the brute force that has been directed nationwide - not a few rogue bad cops - and the tactics of media blackouts, and so on... if this was any other nation (esp one that had oil), our leaders would be up in arms about supporting democracy and decrying the force used against a country's own citizens.
[Sigh! How about if we slightly alter your screen name to nadine_dumb?]
I feel numb in some respects - how can this be happening here, in 2011, with a Democratic president? How can he not say something at least along the lines about not turning on peaceful protestors?
[You're not numb, just DUmb.]
I am just outraged, frustrated, and saddened that even in Obama continues to ignore this issue I still have to vote for him.
[And you will still vote for Obama IF the fog enveloping your tiny mind ever clears enough for you to see the obvious...namely that Obama himself has ordered a shutdown on the OWS encampments? And now to the rest of the equally DUmb DUmmies...]
If the president were to endorse it, he would open himself up to accusations of supporting anarchy. That's not really the case, but that's the way FOX would spin it. Like it or not, FOX crap does influence a large portion of the voting population.
[Yeah, Obama is merely the helpless victim of nefarious FOX machinations.]
Bloomberg's girlfriend is one of the owners of the park. That is
a HUGE part of this.
'Occupy' crackdowns coordinated with federal law enforcement officials
[STOP!!! You're getting too close to the horrible truth!]
Over the past ten days, more than a dozen cities have moved to evict "Occupy" protesters from city parks and other public spaces. As was the case in last night's move in New York City, each of the police actions shares a number of characteristics. And according to one Justice official, each of those actions was coordinated with help from Homeland Security, the FBI and other federal police agencies.
[But Obama had no knowledge of this. He has been hermetically sealed from brutal reality inside of a giant condom.]
Its not even a support of OWS I am asking for (although it would be awesome). Denounce the tactics againts the people - guns, pepper spray, etc should not be used as a first response
[Um...Guess WHO ordered the OWS removals, nadine_dumb?]
Well I definitely agree with you there. I mean WTF was up with raiding them at 1 a.m.?
[They should have waited until noon when the OWSies had a chance to get their beauty rest.]
I completely agree with the OP. This movement has exposed and confirmed a lot about our political system and the silence of our Elected officials is shameful. They do not need to support the movement, but to not condemn the brutality of the police against peaceful people is simply shameful and tells way more than any words they might say, would do.
[You're as DUmb as nadine_dumb.]
Someone has to stand up for OWS.. it should be Obama. Oh ya..I forgot.. Obama put 70-year-old cancer patients in jail for possession of Medical MJ, while his AG shipped guns to Mexican Drug Cartels.
[For some reason I am suspecting that you are a LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]
Why seek the presidency at all if you're so disinterested in the goings on within the country?
[Because you get to golf, vacation on Martha's Vineyard, and fly around the country in Air Force One on the public dime.]
He has said stuff about other countries, Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, Syria and criticized the crackdowns on people exercising their rights to protest, why would he not do the same thing for his own people?
[Because he wants the OWS idiots gone and forgotten before the election campaign.]
Department of Homeland Security, which is coordinating the raids, is federal. Therefore he does have a say in this.
[Please stop! I can't handle the truth!]
Doubt it would be "active" - my guess is that he's just ignoring it and letting Justice and Homeland Security handle it. He could say something if he wanted to, but he won't.
[Guys, you shut down the OWS. I just want to eat my shrimp.]
There are rapes, and may even be murders at OWS going forward. If he steps in and someone is hurt, killed, or raped, then he will be blamed.
[FUnnie but we haven't heard of a single rape or murder at a Tea Party event. Not even public defecations.]
Well normal people are looking at the limited clips of what's going on and it doesn't look very good.
[Like this public defecation CLIP?]
Let me clarify... OWS is getting very little coverage here. The little bit they've shown has been negative.
[How about that public defecation clip of an OWSie going above and beyond the call of doody?]
He's not saying anything because he supports the crackdown. The attacks on OWS are coordinated by Homeland Security, the FBI and other Federal police agencies.
[Oh my poor burning ears! The brutal truth is stinging them!]
Hi, I'm the husband of Nadine_Mn.
[You have my sympathies.]
President Obama needs to denounce the violence at OWS.
[Apparently you are as DUmb as your wife.]
The conclusion I've come to is that we have to get rid of capitalism, one way or another.
[Say hello to Little Lenin.]
And he SHOULD have something to say about it!!! Jesus, i thought he was a CONSTITUTIONAL Scholar for crissakes! For all the shit he said in 2008, all that made me cry THEN...his silence is making me livid today
[If his silence is making you livid then the brutal truth that he DIRECTED the closure of the OWS protests would make your head explode. But Obama need have no fear. You are guaranteed to vote for him next year.]
My anger at this administration is beyond civil expression on this board. This country and all of its people have been horribly, horribly betrayed.
[You want a hankie to cry into?]
I'm not in tears.
I never expected anything better
I'm angry. More intense than angry. Livid.
I've been that way since '08.
I don't HAVE to do a damned thing except die.
[Yet another vote for Obama from the grave.]
I have a terrible feeling we will really be thrown under the bus. I honestly don't think I could go vote if the democrats throw us under the bus. If they do they are no different then the other side. I am afraid there will be many people home crying. Then we will need to find someone to take on the president.
[Mark this DUmmie down as a sure vote for Obama next year.]
