Violence Spirals Out of Control at ‘Occupy Oakland’ As Homeless People, Ex-Convicts, at Least One Sex Offender, Students & Anarchists Vie For Power

Another stunning development… The violence at Occupy Oakland city camp has spiraled out of control as homeless people, ex-convicts, at least one registered sex offender, students, unemployed hotel workers, anarchists and far left activists vie for power.

On Monday a newscaster “got his fancy suitcoat torn by the camper’s dog.” The angry newscaster called the police, angering the Occupy crowd. When the police arrived they were ejected by a chanting mob.

Sounds like a place you want to send your kids.
Inside Bay Area reported, via Big Government:

Tension had been building for days in the Occupy Oakland camp before it erupted into violence Monday and Tuesday. When it finally did, Don Hughes, a substitute teacher and full-time tent resident of the camp, found himself amid a full-blown melee.

The next thing Hughes knew he was in a headlock, then he was being punched, and then he was on the ground as a large man began to choke him.

“This is a revolution, and we want it to be open to everybody,” said Hughes early Wednesday morning, “but this guy crossed too many lines.”

As dawn came Wednesday, the protest’s 10th day, an almost overwhelming sense of urgency was developing around the need to resolve internal security issues that have bedeviled residents and passers-by alike. The tent city that has sprung up on the steps of Oakland City Hall has attracted a diverse range of people, many with competing ideologies and world views. Homeless people, ex-convicts, at least one registered sex offender, students, unemployed hotel workers, anarchists and reform-minded activists freely mingle together in what amounts to a democracy free-for-all.

Sometimes, everyone appears to be on the same page. But the skein of civility has been frequently shattered as bullies, the mentally ill, drunks, thugs and anarchists have threatened the safety and well-being of the camp’s more peaceful residents. Occupy Oakland has grown out of demonstrations that began in a New York City park a month ago as a protest against what occupiers see as corporate greed.

    You know that Oakland is Van Jones’ home town where he was a “community organizer” and led many of those marxist-communist marches?

    This is the same city Van Jones came from.

    They had to know that the good people of the Patriot Movement (Tea Party) would not be caught dead among these non-Americans. They are going to have to start killing themselves in grand scale to get the desired result of martial law for obama.

    It is a sickening display of human degradation, and WE will not be a part of this Middle Eastern type revolution. The thing that soros, obama and his ilk don’t seem to understand==>

    I agree. But the fact is that those same people are living in an occupied country and allowing those occupiers to destroy everything good about it.|topnews|text|FRONTPAGE

    Between this national socialist anti-Americanism and OWS/union/ neo-nazi/ communist thuggery, We the People are starting to get mighty restless…

    Gaddafi’s death is just a red herring that is being used to distract attention from what Obama is really up to.

    Bringing in the riot police with water cannons, billy clubs, tear gas, and the K-9 Units, while providing great entertainment, would only be doing these people a favor.

    Just build a fence around the gathering and call it the “New Oakland Zoo” – that would be more appropriate.

    But I say, let it go on for a while longer. Remove all police presence. Let these people have at each other. They are putting on a show right now for the entire world to see – let them have at it – for it is a spectacle that the majority of Americans won’t soon forget. If the President, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi want to tie themselves to this group – why should we stop them?

    They deserve each other. Pass the popcorn.

  • theBuckWheat

    Leftists must discover for themselves the same timeless wisdom that they rejected at the beginning of their protests. Their ideology prevents them from recognizing that greed is a constant, no matter how much altruism is part of the motive. But then again, it was Marx who sought to achieve the secular Utopia through his ideal “perfect socialist man”.

    I would ask people to define the difference between “greed” and “self interest”. Even these protestors would seek to sell their own used car for the best price they could get.

  • John Fembup

    “the need to resolve internal security issues ”

    Mmm, yes, we see. It’s almost as though the occupiers feel the need to keep certain types of “immigrants” from entering the occupied areas.

    That involves a border security issue as well, don’tcha think?

    Makes one wonder what their next step will be. . . will the occupiers use force to guard the perimeters and / or forcibly eject the unworthy and impure?

    Oh, Liberal dummies. Don’t you realize that you make common cause with convicts, criminals, lowlifes, and ne’er-do-wells when you call for the disintegration of civil society? You want to Occupy Wall Street? You say you want a Revolution? Well, you’re not gonna be able to have one with nothing but unemployed art history majors who live in their parents spare room in Old Westbury, substitute teachers, and baristas who want $25/hour plus a company car for frothing my cappuccino.

    Your propositions are designed to attract the homeless, the convict, the criminal, the marginal. The rest of us are too busy supporting families and building lives to go play campout protest in the park. The only people available to help you tear it all down are going to be the kind of people who are quite used to settling disagreements by violence, rather than parliamentary procedure or grievance committees. So have fun getting pummeled, children.

    “This is a revolution, and we want it to be open to everybody,” said Hughes early Wednesday morning, “but this guy crossed too many lines.”

    The problem is once you start crossing lines, that you can’t draw a line for someone else and expect him not to cross it. That’s why we support the rule of law. You support Socialism, Communism, and Anarchy and then cry like a baby that they “cross the line”. You are part of the scum at the bottom of civility and law and wonder why there is no cream down there.

  • averagemelon

    Ah, the minds of the self-pity-ers…POLICE GO HOME!

    I wonder how FAST they would call the police if someone were to start shooting them down.

    This is the perfect example why the majority police officers say their job is mostly babysitting people who know better.

    “When the police arrived they were ejected by a chanting mob.”

    Wait, what?

  • greenfairie

    Just read on NY Magazine’s online site about the chaos and fights among the Occupy Wall Streeters. This is why vague idealism doesn’t work to keep people together and it shows why democracy via mob always leads to either an iron-fist clampdown or a total social breakdown.

  • Gary

    Sooo… What they are really saying is that they need to build a fence to keep out those who add no value to their society?

    Lord of the Flies, writ small.
    And this is just practice for the elections next year so they can develop the logistical skills needed for large scale sustained riots. I really, really would like to see one of the freshman House members introduce a bill explicitly prohibiting Federal funds for rebuilding after these Officially encouraged protests. It would be amazing how fast they would get shut down if the cities had to cover the damage everyone knows is coming.

    This is how it starts, 1st protests, 2nd rioting and civil unrest, 3rd all out civil war!!!!That is the result when a countrys government refuses to enforce laws that are on the books (such as immigration). Then gains and maintains the office through fraudulent voting practices. Lets foriegn enities influence legislation. And most important violates the Constitutional rights of its legall citizens!!!! Take a good look at Lybia OBUMMER, thats the result of sacrificing the rights of the many for the greed, the power, and the control of the few!!! GET THE PICTURE!!!!

  • eaglewingz08

    Gee if only the congress had passed porkulus 2 this would not have happened and police could have prevented Obama’s supporters from engaging in thuggery. By the way what part of open borders and redistribution of wealth by compulsion dont these Oakland idiots not understand?

    This is the same community that’s people marched in support of Lovelle Mixon, the child rapist, cop murdering coward who died in a closet on his knees like the pathetic coward he was.

    He raped a child. He killed 4 cops, 2 of them were motorcycle cops he executed on the side of the road when they pulled him over, the other 2 were shot from his closet he cowered in. The community of Oakland marched in support, saying he was a “good dude”, “a hero” and “a real man” because he stood up to the man. It was more like they support black rapists who kill white cops.

    I’ve never been to Oakland, never had the urge, never will, but “Homeless People, Ex-Convicts, at Least One Sex Offender, Students & Anarchists” seems to describe my impressions of their prominent citizens and it seems they already run things there. The “COO” Commie Occupation of Oakland isn’t much different.

    Excellent comment.

    They support this rapist/murderer, and at the same damn time, they hate, HATE Palin, Beck, Limbaugh.

    How many children does Palin have to rape, how many cops does Palin have to shoot for her to be as “cool” as Mixon? Or Mumia? Or Che Guevara?

    none of this is being reported on local tv “news”. the thugs are being presented as peace-loving hippies. the idiot mayor, jean quan (one of the morons behind the ‘ebonics’ movement years ago), has said of the occupation, “democracy is messy”.
    however, the health department has called for the plaza to be vacated tonight…we’ll see how that works out.

    These people (all OWS groups) are just protesting Wall Street in an attempt to get on “Easy Street”. In the process, they are offering themselves (and everybody else) to live in a communist-like country in exchange for it. If they knew anything about economics or communist-style government, they would probably not want it….you better know what you ask for because it might not be what you think it is.
