Occupy DC Protesters Push 78 Year-Old Woman Down Cement Stairs at AFP Conference (Video)

This is Obama’s army.
Now they’re pushing 78 year-old women down cement stairs.

78-year-old Dolores Broderson is helped up after she was pushed down the stairs by Obama-endorsed Occupy DC protesters outside the Americans for Prosperity Dinner in Washington DC on Friday night.

Daily Caller posted video of two women who were knocked down by the Occupy DC protesters outside the conservative conference dinner. Dolores is the second woman being helped up in the video. Both women look injured.
(Around the 3:40 mark)

Power Line reported last night that the woman’s name is Dolores Broderson. Small Dead Animals got this email:

Ray Patnaude emails: “My wife and I were at the AFP dinner. Some info on the AFP member who was pushed down the stairs by the protestors… she is the second woman the police are helping up in the Daily Caller video. Her name is Dolores Broderson, age 78. She rode on a bus for 11 hours from Detroit to get there. She went to the emergency room with a bloody nose and bruises on her hand and leg.”

    VERY lucky she wasn’t killed. I suppose it is too much to hope that we’ll see any arrests for assault . . .

    Political violence, thank you Obama.

    Granny- It won’t be long before somebody is killed I guarantee you that.The MSM is finding it harder to ignore this type of behavior.Dear Leader endorses this kind of violence. How sad.

    So we have assaults, drug use and death, vandalism, and anarchy (anarchy calling for more big-government intervention…). Yet the general public thinks the Tea Party rallies, where parks were left more clean than before, were more radical than this mass hooliganism.

    Thank to our press and their biased and distorted coverage of news events.

    She was very lucky. God bless her.

    Obama’s Civilian Domestic Army hard at work.

    At least the cops released the man who ran over 2 occu-squatters. LOL!

    That ought a tick off Obama.

  • WAT?

    I’m sorry, but have any of you watched this video. The blond woman is obviously incensed and does a lot of screaming, but I didn’t see anyone get “pushed down cement stairs.” Granted, I see two women being helped up off the ground, but I see no evidence here of anyone pushing anyone. It’s obvious that things got heated and there was confrontation, and of course I hope that both women are ok, but don’t you think that claiming that angry “Obama-endorsed (ha!) Occupy DC protesters” pushed two women down the stairs is, at least based on this video, totally inflammatory and unfounded. I think that’s just called BadJournalism.

  • Conservative to the Core

    Liberal-on-liberal violence. So sad.

  • The Scarlet Valkyrie

    At #11 Conservative to the Core…

    It wasn’t liberal-on-liberal violence. This was a borderline elderly woman leaving a Conservative Americans for Prosperity dinner. She had the misfortune of being identified as a Conservative among a mob of raging liberals. So, of course, they pushed her down concrete steps.

  • Robert

    #10 WAT?

    In the first minute we have censorship ,and then intimidation in the form of blocking the streets, which is a crime against society. I acutally do not care about the censorship, since it is not by a government agency. However, it is hypocritical since this outbreak of mass hysteria shares roots in form and substance with the then so-called Free Speech movement.

    Then they are attempting to invade and overwhelm a gathering of political opposites, which they would do if allowed, running through and chanting with their ever-present tribalistic drums. No telling where the mayhem in there would have led, possibly to their own bad end, much the same as the idiots who were run over while illegally blocking the road.

  • aprilnovember811

    Please stop trying to justify this. Barack Hussein Obama has lied about his identity. IT’S TIME WE HAVE A CONGRESS DO IT’S JOB AND SET IN MOTION HIS REMOVAL. HE’S THE SON OF MALCOLM X.

    It’s time to stop these people. They have no permits to be doing this. They have a right to peacefully assemble. They aren’t peaceful and they have no permits.

  • Robert

    If not actually pushed by an individual, the women were knocked over by the crowd of cursing, loud miscreants who are self-imaging as educated, enlightened citizens.

    They are a band of societal disrupters with no discernible objective to their caterwauling.

    Do you mean the two protesters who were among a group that surrounded a car and behaved in a threatening manner towards the driver, going so far as to climb on the windshield? That wasn’t an “attack” on the nincompoops – that was self defense.

  • Thomas

    Regardless of the semantic details of the violence towards this woman – such behavior is ALWAYS inappropriate and should be persecuted. However, the much more significant violation is to run two people over with a car. As law abiding citizens, would you agree that both the driver of the car and the police officer need to be brought to justice?
    Thank you very much.

  • Bunni

    This is what the community organizer in chief has repeatedly endorsed. There will be blood in his hands. They want things to disintigrate into WORSE than lord of the flies, and it’s happening.

    ONE YEAR until we get to vote (unless he finds a way to screw us out of that, too)!

    No, I absolutely would NOT agree. When you go into the middle of the street against the light and threaten a driver who is legally traveling on a road with the right of way, then you have no legal recourse and shouldn’t have any. The driver was well within his rights to attempt to get away from the mob and the police were exactly right to refuse to cite him.

    That is not at all the same as deliberately pushing people down the stairs!

  • Robert

    #24 Thomas

    I’ll see your “much more significant” and raise you one.

    Much more significant is that the “Occupy” movement is a degenerate expression of anarchy paradoxically combined with a wish for big-government intervention of their terms.

    We have now nation-wide examples of disturbances escalating into crimes, death, and destruction. As stated above, the driver was threatened and the cops recognized that on the spot, since they have been seeing this animal farm up close for weeks and months now.

    “This is what democracy looks like.”

  • Thomas

    Granny, sorry if I am repeating myself but my point is not whether one thing is worse than the other, it is whether running people over with a car, regardless of circumstances, is a violation of current legislation and calls for persecution.

    And that’s all i have to say. I wish y’all a happy Sunday.

  • Carbon Pootprint

    Don’t play in the streets kids. You have no effing right to block traffic and deny others freedom of movement. Besides wasn’t that driver black? The crowd was mostly a bunch of spoiled chit white trust fund babies. mmmmmmmmmmm illegally blocking streets by a bunch of future betrayers of the next generation. tough choice mmmmmm GAS IT!!

    Two points Thomas

    1. Obviously you do not drive. In every jurisdiction in the country people who step into the road against the light outside of a crosswalk have total responsibility for anything that might happen to them. If you deliberately step in front of a moving car on your own head be it.

    2. Apparently you need to go back to school. “persecution” is not the same thing as “prosecution.” No, the driver involved should not be “prosecuted” because he was well within his legal rights. Those who SHOULD be prosecuted are the ones who went into the road and surrounded his car – for jay walking if nothing else.

  • Robert

    “whether running people over with a car, regardless of circumstances, is a violation of current legislation and calls for persecution.”

    Obviously, the police right there on the scene felt otherwise, and for good reason. They have to contend with the hooligans and misfits, and let the law-abiding citizens go.

    Have a nice day, dum-dum.

  • Gus

    Thomas, pardon my semantics, but you are a fvcking imbecile.

    Folks this is how COMMIES operate. They STAGE an incident and claim the bloody shirt.

    This is ALYNSKI, this is the REICHSTAG FIRE.

    2 questions for you Tommy the Commie. Why were the COMMIE PROTESTORS intefering with the car. And. Why were the COMMIES at an AFP Conference, why were they injuring elderly attendees??

    Can you answer either question your drooling buffoon???

  • Bunni commented: I can’t wait, I’d vote for a piece of cat poo over obumbler. You may get your chance to do just that. From the looks of things so far, pretty damn dismal. No leadership = another four years of screw ups and down hill runs. We the people could stop looking to the government and turn to doing business local – local produce- buy USA made- help local charities- build our own communities, cities and states.

  • Gus

    Thomas, why don’t you run away you cowardly fuktard.

  • OWSCarl Nitwit Extraordinaire

    I was there. The peaceful protesters were peacefully pounding on the vehicle and peacefully threatening the violent driver. I would certainly side with the peaceful protesters if they threatened me while I was trying to get home from my greedy, bourgeois job. If they eventually pulled me from the vehicle and peacefully beat me, I’d only have my greedy self to blame for violently participating in the inequity of capitalism.

  • John03

    Someone tell me again why we’re allowing this violent behavior to continue? The protests, no matter how stupid and inept these people are, are protected under the constitution and fully legal. Rape, murder, assault, and willfull destrection of property are however not. If this continues with the police and other local law enforcement standing idlely by at the orders of local liberal government officials it will soon be time to get the bats and pitchforks out of the closet and go clean up this mess.

  • cnation

    Dear ‘occupiers’,

    Lay a hand on my wife, daughter or mother, and as God is my witness, it will be the last thing you ever do.


  • Alana

    John 03 – it is not perfectly legal to have a protest/rally/whatever without a permit.

    And it is never legal to “occupy” (i.e., take over; set up shop in; live in) places which are not yours.

  • cnation

    To John03,

    We aren’t allowing this to happen, our spineless municipal governments are. If we allow our local elected officials to remain in office after this, then it can be blamed on us. Some, like that disgraceful activist hag Mayor Quan of Oakland, need to be removed from office immediately. Not next election, not next week, not tomorrow….not even later on today but right f’n now. And, quite frankly, I could care less the method.


  • squeaky

    a 78 year old woman being pushed down stairs could have much more dire consequences…..
    broken hips lead to death for many. a high per cent die within a year or so. the car guys are victims of their own stupidity. if they were honest, they’d admit it.

  • Folks, when there is an opposing crowd – particularly unruly crowd – the elderly and women should not go about alone especially at night. They are too much of an easy target.
    Girls and women should move here and there in pairs at least, if not have a male escort.

    This is why it’s good to live in a concealed carry state like Texas. If you live anywhere else, your most important job should be forcing your leg to enact concealed carry. Down here, if punks surround and beat on your car, especially if you have your family in the car with you the punks need to have their life insurance paid up. If some crowd of protesters lays hands on me or any member of my family, protesters will die until I run out of bullets. It’s about time ordinary, decent, hardworking Americans start standing up to these occupy thugs!! If they want war, let’s take it right to them. Our punks have had to scale it back because they keep remembering “Oh yeah, if I illegally lay hands on someone or get out of line…they have the right to shoot me in the head.”

    The Right has the weapons, experience, and training to make short work of these hippies. Remember who applies for all those hunting permits every year hippies? Remember who proudly goes off to serve their country, hippies? It ain’t liberal arts students from Scarsdale. It ain’t poetry professors at Yale. It ain’t vegan buddhists who run locavore cop-ops, it ain’t lesbian union “educators” working on their Masters Degree in orgasm training for 3-year olds..it’s Us. And when you get Us pushed against the wall…well you’re going to find out what it feels like to assume room temperature.

    I think it’s time for the real working class to join together, venture out, and send these fleabaggers home. The police are obviously outnumbered and their power compromised by their leftist taskmasters and political correctness.

    But the fleabaggers are vastly outnumbered by those of us who know what needs to be done, like 1000 to 1. It’s time for us to take to the streets with baseball bats or preferred instruments of persuasion and clean up the mess. When the locals started doing this in England, the protests died out.

    They want a confrontation. Let’s give them one. Who’s with me?

  • chuck in st paul

    Tommy trying to conflate this heinous act against an elderly woman with a couple of douchebags running out in front of a moving vehicle that had a green light is just so typical of the failed mental abilites consistent with libtard affiliation.

    I have spent years trying to inform and ‘help’ liberals into the real world with actual facts not made up by the LSM or cesspools like Kos and HuffNPuff. I have decided to give up and call idiots and criminals what they actually are because:

    “Doing the same thing over and over expecting a different outcome is insane.” – Einstein.

  • mcc

    I’ll add the man in the car said he had a two-year old in the back seat. They were pounding on the windows. We’ve seen the store windows they’ve smashed.

    That driver had every right to get his child to safety.

    The police know what they’re doing. And they know the protesters were the cause for any injury (which they may have faked) and not the driver. It’s the mayors who need to be held accountable for not getting a handle on this, and for allowing it to escalate.

    Notice at the end of the video, the leader of the pack (the one in the suit, I think: a young Barry/community organizer) calls out, “It was a Mercedes!” And a girl repeats, “Yeah, a Mercedes!”

    The evil rich is who they’re after – nothing more, nothing less. Barry has taught them class envy and every hate imaginable that destroys the soul of a man and his country.

    Btw, I’ve been watching to see how their “dress” might be a code to inform one another what role each is playing in these manufactured incidents.

    This is the warm up act to what’s coming next Summer and Fall.

    The Alinsky Left is getting desperate since they know Obama can’t fool the American people again like he did in 08. The shine is off the dime, and Obama has been exposed for the Socialist he is.

    The Alinsky Left always preaches non violence, yet we have seen time and time again how they keep committing violence in the “Occupy Movement”.

    The above video, the rapes that have been reported, the violence of Occupy Oakland, trying to force their way into a Conservative event, and then get mad when they aren’t allowed to enter the building to harass the people, they tried to force their way into the Space and Air Museum in Washington, and that’s just scratching the surface.

    They have no class, first defecating on a Police car, and now defecating in Bank lobbies.

    When you go to vote next November, make sure your cell phone batteries are fully charged, and get ready to record them trying to intimidate and harass people in front of polling places. Like the Black Panthers did in Philadelphia.

    They know the media is on their side and will ignore, slant and edit these type of stories to help them in their Cloward and Piven agenda.

    It’s coming folks.

    These idiot protestors need to be reminded you can peacefully assemble and protest. However you cannot impede the flow of traffic, or knock down citizens or break glass, write graffiti, damage private property, and camp out on any spot you choose or do anything you want, all under the misguided guise of protesting capitalism. Either parents or the educational system really dropped the ball with these people. I hope the law starts doing massive arrests, in whatever manner they need to.

    You have to admit, Dolores was an easy target. The OWS crowd quickly assessed this fact when they surveyed potential victims at Americans for Prosperity Dinner in Washington DC on Friday night.

    My only question is: Why were there no citizens present who considered it their duty to grab a two-by-four, soaked in motor oil, guarantied not to break, bend or splinter, and crush the skulls of these perpetrators?

    Just wondering.

This is by no means a peaceful protest and it just goes to show the level of liberal antagonism in our country today.
