We know he was sympathetic to the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) crowd. Two years ago, he let them take over McPherson Square. McPherson Square is controlled by the National Park Service, whose boss is the president. McPherson Square lies in the heart of the nation’s capitol.
The OWS crowd moved in, confronted police and despoiled the square. They defecated and urinated in this park in very public ways. Some occupiers roamed the area naked to make some type of point, although I’m not quite sure what it was.
Maybe it was simply that “anarchy is cool.”
Anyway, the president was okay with this, letting these lowlifes occupy the space for two months. He let taxpayers pick up the tab to clean up the substantial mess left behind once they cleared out and moved back into their parents’ basements … More…
How did the Occupy Chick-fil-A event differ from Occupy Wall Street? Let me count the ways … More…

The pro life protesters took over city parks around the nation. They were loud and profane.
They called themselves the 99.5, which represents the percentage of our population not aborted each year. They protest in defense of the .5% preborn who have no rights and are aborted each year.
At their encampment at Zuccotti Park in New York, violent crime went up. People were assaulted. The police officer in charge of keeping the peace with these aggressive pro-lifers was Edward Winski. He somberly reported: “Many of these were assaults against police officers.”
“We have a first amendment right of free speech and assembly” was the shout from these committed pro life zealots. Eventually though, American cities grew tired of the disruption caused by the pro life crowd and their anti Planned Parenthood rant. They could no longer tolerate the rapes, the drug use, and other associated risks to the public safety.
The authorities began to disperse the crowds. They had to clean up the filth left behind which included used hypodermic needles and buckets of human waste. One sanitation engineer exclaimed, “These were some of the worst smells I’ve ever experienced!” Just what kind of people are these pro lifers?
Despite the damage, the filth, and the thuggery that accompanied the pro life protests, liberal pundits jumped to the defense of the right of these pro lifers to assemble and protest the consequences of Roe V Wade. Just this morning, former Secretary of Labor, Robert Reich voiced his displeasure with the treatment they received from city authorities around the country:
“… when real people without money assemble to express their dissatisfaction with the political consequences of this, they’re treated as public nuisances — clubbed, pepper-sprayed, thrown out of public parks and evicted from public spaces.”
Liberal Des Moines columnist, Rekha Basu, had to reluctantly admire the tenacity of the protestors. Although she said the pro life protestors earned some of the criticism they received from their bad behavior,
“… such incidents are the exceptions, given the thousand of protesters involved. If, instead of protesting, these people spent their days playing video games and drinking beer at home, there’d probably be no public criticism. Instead, they are offering an alternative voice …”
In other words, Ms. Basu commends their civic-minded expression of their collective consciences.
Of course, all of the above has been twisted. I fudged the facts. You saw it coming, although I did use actual quotes for Mr. Reich and Ms. Basu. However, their quotes were directed toward the defense of the Occupy Wall Street crowd.
If in fact the pro life community protested as the Occupy Wall Street crowd does, they would be crucified by liberal pundits and the mainstream media. They would not tolerate the rapes, the thuggery, the excrement, the drug use, the public nudity, and the overall barbarism that has accompanied the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement. It says much about the value system of the Left that they do excuse the rapes, the thuggery, the excrement, the drug use, the public nudity and the overall barbarism that accompanies this movement.
The pro life crowd that works so hard on behalf of society’s least powerful, the .5%, does their work with civility, love, and prayer. Their anger is channeled in constructive ways. You would not know they had even been in a public space when their gatherings disperse. They are left spotless.
There’s such a difference between civilized and uncivilized movements.

You can’t help but glean some quick reactions to the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) crowd.
They like to copulate in public parks.
The women like to display themselves in a state of undress.
Impressed so far?
But what is really on their minds?
Democratic pollster, Douglas Schoen, had a senior researcher poll OWS in New York about their beliefs and their goals. Mr. Schoen was the pollster used by former President Clinton. Here is a brief overview of his findings, as reported in The Wall Street Journal.
Media coverage led us to believe that OWS are disaffected because they are out of work. In fact, 85% are employed, a rate only slightly less than the national average.
The OWS view the role of government as to guarantee everyone affordable health care, to guarantee everyone a college education, to guarantee everyone a secure, comfortable retirement, the cost be damned.
But they don’t really want to pay for it.
They evidently want the “one percent,” the reviled rich, to pick up the tab. Seventy-seven percent support raising taxes on the wealthy, but 58% of them don’t want taxes increased for everybody.
These folks don’t represent the nation. About all of them (98%) support civil disobedience to bring about a radical redistribution of wealth. Nearly a third (31%) support violence to bring about the change they demand.
What is most disturbing is the blanket support the OWS are receiving from President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and other members of their party.
The president seems increasingly comfortable currying favor with these left wing Marxists (forgive the redundancy). Will his support of these unwashed and naked (by choice) unleash a new wave of violence in our land?
Pollster Schoen issues a warning to members of his party:
“Rather than embracing huge new spending programs and tax increases, plus increasingly radical and potentially violent activists, the Democrats should instead build a bridge to the much more numerous independents and moderates in the center by opposing bailouts and broad-based tax increases.”
