FAIL – John Boenher: I Understand Occupy Wall Street Frustrations

The Iranian Regime knows that the Occupy Wall Street movement is nothing more than a revolt against capitalism but evidently this fact is lost on the Republican Speaker of the House. Either that or he also supports abolishing the free market system in America.

Speaker John Boehner told an audience today that he understands the frustrations of the #OWS loons.

The Politico reported:

Speaker John Boehner said Monday that he understood the “frustrations” driving the Occupy Wall Street movement – but urged protesters to be peaceful to prevent demonstrations from blowing out of control.

“I understand people’s frustrations,” Boehner said during an appearance at the McConnell Center at the University of Louisville. “The economy is not producing jobs like they want and there’s lot of erosion of confidence in our government and frankly, under the First Amendment, people have the right to speak out … but that doesn’t mean they have the permission to violate the law.”

“Beyond that, I lived through the riots of the Vietnam War … and you can see how some of those activities got out of control. A lot of people lived through the race riots of 1968 that was clearly out of control, and I’m hopeful that these demonstrations will continue to be peaceful.”

Earlier this month, remarks on the movement by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) that the protesters were “mobs” caused an uproar and led the Virginia Republican to ultimately back away from his comments.
