‘Ocuppy Sacramento’ Loons Lash Out at Reporters For Asking Questions About Their Protest (Video)

What idiots.
They have absolutely no idea why they are protesting and lash out at reporters for daring to ask the question.
The only thing they know for sure is that they want more of your money.

CBS Local

Organizer Anthony Bondi said he has what he referred to as a “message team” working on the primary goals of the local protests, which he admitted “was kind of vague.”

“That message team will reveal that tomorrow [Friday] morning,” Bondi said.

“So you guys are in the process of forming the reasons why you are here?” asked CBS13 reporter Tony Lopez.

“Exactly correct,” Bondi said.

Other protesters gave clearer reasons for their attendance, saying that wealth disparity and corruption in the business world are causing harm to society.

“I’m here because corporate greed and financial greed are ruining this country,” said a retired educator.

Groups of demonstrators gathered around television cameras periodically and tried to shout down reporters with accusations of manipulating coverage of the protest. Other isolated protesters tried to convince attendees to avoid speaking with the media altogether.

    It’s becoming more and more obvious that the occupation of Madison was practice for these occupy “protests”. Attacking the media and not allowing the rank and file protesters a chance to be interviewed was how they controlled the message, i.e. this is a “peaceful” protest, etc. The professonal agitators didn’t want anyone to slip and admit they were paid or to admit that they really had no clue why they were there!

    So, many reasons for America to be upset. So, many voters who had no idea who they were voting for in ’08.

    Again, I am just saying these are going to be the voters in 2012. I hope they will go home and do their homework on each an every candidate, including the presidential candidate.

    We cannot afford more Americans getting it wrong another time.

    Pretty much anyone can do a better job. Anyone…hummm but you have got to know what I mean. When unions, Seiu thugs and Black Panthers with a third grade education can brainwash citizens, then this is a dumb down America.

    Research or better yet, stop being the sheep who follow. Start mattering and even try to lead with convictions and priority to a better America. NOW ISN’T THAT PERSPECTIVE.

    I am loving these protests. They are not helping the left and they are educating some who Conservatives could never reach through rational means.
    In Portland Oregon the mayor allowed them to camp in a city park. This is not sitting well. It remains to be seen who this insanity benefits but I’m betting that in the end, it is not the organizers or the enablers.

    Main Street needs to Occupy their corn holes with a swift boot kick. Stop leaving it up to the police UNIONS.

    They are here because Obama orchestrated their presence. Obama and team are now studying the press on the event and will respond shortly with a new messaging tactic. Just as soon as they poll test the message.

    These protestors are waiting to be told what to think. They will not have to wait long.

    PS: The black guy had the line of the day. The reporter said “Do you want to talk or do you want to yell?” He yelled back, “I want to yell!”

    My son spent some time with the St. Louis protesters. He found that they have no idea what they’re protesting or why.

    The educational system has done a great job of romanticizing the protests of the 60’s. In reality, most were counterproductive. Study the improvements made by Blacks in this country after WWII and look at what happened once the modern Civil Rights movement kicked off. The progress came to a grinding halt as the wisdom of Booker T. Washington lost out to the Socialism of W.E.B. DuBois.

    Again, there needs to be some moral arbiter, that both sides have at least some modicum of respect for, to speak out prominently and label this for what it is. Powell, Clinton, or someone like that, famed but fair (a little bit) – As long as one side (the dems) doesn’t speak out strongly against the protests, they’ll think they’re getting support (which they are from Soros et al) and will continue.

    Salvato: When the Greedy Feign Outrage

    [But a closer examination of who is in attendance, who is stepping up to
    the proverbial microphone and what “the movement” is issuing as a set
    of “demands,” makes the studied eye suspicious that this may, in fact,
    be the mother of all political “astroturfing” initiatives, just in time to
    demonize the job creators as “greedy” in the run up to an election where
    the incumbent – Barack Obama – hasn’t an accomplishment to run on.

    Perhaps the biggest “red flag” (no pun intended) came in the form of statements made by left-wing Progressive agitator, self-avowed Communist and former Obama Administration official Van Jones. Jones is currently the lead rabble-rouser of the “American Dream Movement,” a radically left-wing political activist organization run by the Progressive group MoveOn.org Civic Action, in partnership with a number of other Leftist and Liberal groups ranging from the Hip Hop Caucus to Planned Parenthood.


    But perhaps the most infuriating “demand” comes in the form of this: Bring American elections up to international standards. The United States – but for the manipulation of ballots and the voting process by opportunistic and nefarious elements, such as ACORN, MoveOn.org and any number of Progressive community organizing groups; and aside from the Holder Justice Department’s enactment of “social justice” measures to overlook voter intimidation laws – is the most equitable election process in the world. To look to the Third-World-friendly United Nations elections verification process – a process that validated the elections of Hugo Chavez, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Vladimir Putin, as well as Hamas in Gaza and Hezbollah in Lebanon – is to enlist a lecher to chaperone a beauty pageant. The notion is absurd.]

    Obama, his entire Administration, how they got
    there, and how stupid are we is ABSURD!! gah!!

    The protestors are neither parroting democratic or republican platforms. They are protesting the 1% of billionaires who now run the country, and have collapsed the economy and the middle class. Read this very educated post from Nomi Prins once a high executive at Goldman Sachs.

    Before tomorrow’s 2012 pre-election speech in which President Obama’s vocal elocution will be earnest, and results – to put it mildly – tepid, about about how he could create jobs dammit, if only the Republicans would behave, it’s interesting to note who’s supporting Obama keep his job.

    A cursory look at the early stages of his campaign fundraising reveals that the same group of people that benefitted from policies (bi-partisan) that lavished them with cheap money, secret loans, debt guarantees and other forms of perks not available to the average citizen, are backing him for President. Big Time.

    And whereas it’s true, Obama’s most recent poll numbers look as abysmal as any President (save FDR who he will never, ever be) facing a depressed economy and a near double-digit ‘official’ unemployment rate (worse if you get beneath its massaged surface), this isn’t effecting his most important support, the financial kind. To date, Obama’s Presidential bid dosh comes largely from – wait for it – the financial sector.

    Yes, the same sector that screwed the country over, and that, despite some unpleasant lawsuits they will likely settle, remains as powerful, unrepentant, unaccountable, selfish and Main-Street-destabilizing as before Obama took office. No wonder he’s been able to keep Treasury Secretary, Tim Geithner by his side – someone has to allay Wall Street concerns that true retribution or meaningful regulatory repercussion will befall them.

    So far, Obama has raised $49 million dollars. (More than all the GOP wannabes combined, but that’s largely because he’s got the head-start and incumbent factor going for him. Plus, he’s a hit at fundraising events. Here in Los Angeles, he’s tied up traffic several times with those already.) Nearly $35 million has come from ‘bundlers’, those wealthy, connected, folks that circumvent the caps on their individual donations by pooling their dough together. And just over a third of that, or $11.8 million, comes from the Finance Sector (and yes, one of the sector’s 44 bundlers is from Goldman Sachs, his number two contributer in the 2008 election).

    Now, it’s not shocking that the banks are banking on Obama. Until they see a surer bet on the Republican side emerge, they’re not going to be diffusive with their capital that way. And, beyond some scolding words a couple years ago around election time, followed by a Wall Street speech to which none of the CEOs showed, Obama has done zero to expose, denounce, or change the specific fraudulent actions of his supporters – that would be – political suicide for him. Plus, in the game of politics today, the issue for both parties is slamming each other, Wall Street ire has been replaced with entitlement spending cut banter, whether this results in meaningful policy is not even an afterthought.

    Meanwhile, Obama will release details of a new $300 billion jobs stimulus program and urge the GOP to allow him to do his job by creating the nation’s jobs. He might even throw in a sentence or two about helping downtrodden borrowers refinance, which will require bank approval and facilitation, which therefore will be as successful as HAMP. And the GOP will balk and say we must cut spending not increase it, refusing to acknowledge the extent of debt we created to float a criminal banking system.

    Stalemate to the nth degree. Big yawns all around.

    What Obama will not discuss, is the private lending problem that caps the ability of individuals to stay afloat and small and mid-size businesses to hire. Though they have been treated with kids gloves and deep pockets by Washington, the big banks have not shared the joy they received. Small business loans remain anemically at late 2008 levels inhibiting hiring or expansion – and these are the companies that don’t offshore in a heartbeat. Refinancing and mortgage restructuring, despite record low interest rates making the transaction sensible and reducing risk all around, are negligible, thus home movement is impossible and consumer confidence and construction jobs are hit in the process as well. Personal and business bankruptcies continue to mount absent opportunity. This isn’t a healthy scenario for job growth.

    You can blame it on ‘the economy’, ‘tough times’ ‘all of us struggling together’ or any other generic poli-sound bites. Or you can blame it on the biggest banks sitting on extra capital, which either a) is stored at the Fed in the form of $1.6 trillion worth of Treasury bonds that receive interest in excess of the cost of borrowing the money to purchase them, b) is used to trade and speculate, or otherwise derive ways to make a ‘quick’ buck, or c) is set aside to deal with lawsuits they brought upon themselves. Again, none of this is nationally productive or job inducing.

    The private banking system is holding people’s homes, potential jobs, and general confidence and economic well-being hostage. Thus, however Obama phrases whatever he says tomorrow, and even if his plan for a job stimulus package is verbalized in a more coherent strategy than last time – without a loosening of credit – new or re-negotiated or otherwise more befitting the low rate environment that the Fed offers banks, it’s just one tiny piece of a giant puzzle that won’t be able to do squat to turn the tide.

    “I’m here because corporate greed and financial greed are ruining this country,” said a retired educator.

    Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac encouraged and praised lenders – like Countrywide and Bear Stearns – for adopting the slackened policies toward minority applicants.

    “Given these lending practices mandated by the Fed and encouraged by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac,” writes Lott, “the resulting financial problems for financial institutions such as Countrywide and Bear Stearns are not too surprising.”

    Frank, chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, rejected a Bush administration and Congressional Republican plan for regulating the mortgage industry in 2003, saying, “These two entities – Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac – are not facing any kind of financial crisis.” According to a New York Times article, Frank added, “The more people exaggerate these problems, the more pressure there is on these companies, the less we will see in terms of affordable housing.”

    One thing that’s bizarre and dangerous about these protests is how they lack focus, save loathing for “the rich” or “the banks.” There’s no financial sector where I live, but the local “occupy blank” losers decided they’re going to park outside of a bank until their “demands” are met.

    Trying to tell these protesters that it is their Party that has gotten all the big campaign contributions, and is behind all the influence peddleing that has been going on for the last thirty-five years or longer, since it was Democrats that somehow got the Supreme Court to give their knod on a law that declares it unconstitutional that Republican’s receive campaign contributions from large corporations. That was overturned by this Supreme Court recently and that’s all the Democrats have been complaining about since, that it was unconstitutional for the Court to overturn their unconstitutional law. Now the Republican’s can get in on some of that big fat money coming out of Wall Street just like the Democrats have been enjoying for decades.

    If the banks are sitting on huge funds in order to wait and see who the Republican candidate is going to be, and what his/her position is going to be on letting the fat Wall Street Democrat supporting banks, high financiers, stock brokerages, international investors continue to make all the gargantuan money in the hundreds of billions of dollars, and speaking of that what will happen to the value of the dollar, allowing all these Democrat supporters to take their huge profits to the bank, will be before they decide who will get the lions share of all the trillions of dollars the banks are sitting on. And I believe they are sitting on this money but not for the same reason’s the left claims are the reason’s.

    Partly they are sitting on the money because that is what Barney Frank told them to do right after the collapse of Freddie/Fannie in 2008. The reason why loans haven’t been more than they were in 2008 is because that’s where the Democrats have been holding them since 2008. The Frank/Dodd Finance and Banking Controls law, or whatever the hell it’s called, is what has put the clamps on the banks making loans to American’s. But it does not stop the Wall Street banking tycoons from making hay with banks outside of America, which is what they are doing to stay in the green. They have become the pipeline for money flowing out from the government to international banking/investors which is syphoning our money right the hell out of America. There won’t be any money to loan later on because of what Obama, Frank, Dodd are telling the banks to do.

    It wouldn’t surprise me a bit if they were taking in money coming from foreign investors and banks Obama is helping out in Europe who are sending money to the Obama campaign fund, which is against the law but when you’re Obama it depends on who’s laws you’re talking about, that are sending reelection money through the big Wall Street banks acting as “bundlers” for Obama. Huge money comes from them anyway, who’s to know where that money is coming from?

    But if banking was going on as usual, who would know where campaign money was coming from that is coming from the big banks anyway? Even though the banks know sending money to Democrat campaign funds for foreign contributors is against the law, if Democrats are running the banking committee who would find out?

    Alinsky Rules Return For Obama

    The Goal, wrote David Horowitz’s DiscoverTheNetworks.com of Alinsky, “is to foment enough public discontent, moral confusion and outright chaos to spark the social upheaval that Marx, Engels and Lenin predicted — a revolution whose foot soldiers view the status quo as fatally flawed and unworthy of salvation.”
