No wonder the progressives endorse this movement.

    Meanwhile, the MSM outlets are focused on Cains headwear, Justin Bieber’s love child, and how “stupid” Rick Perry is.

    Thank God for the internet and webblogs like the Gateway Pundit.

    The Occupy ‘movement’ started on September 17th. You might want to look that one up also. Sometimes know as the ‘Black September’ movement. They have a history.

    Google it!

    Note to Republicans: These people ARE NOT ANARCHISTS. THEY ARE LEFTISTS. And they very definitely have a proposal: MORE GOVERNMENT.

  • Someone posted something to the occugoons that is worth reading here:
    Looks like normal people are infiltrating their forum.

  • More fun here, looks like normal people are in their comments sections too. Teehee!

  • ‘The importance of 11/17 for the Communists behind OWS #N17
    What is the significance behind the date November 17th and why the “Mass Movement to Resist Austerity” on today’s date? What is N17?

    Is this what Obama meant by “help me Fundamentally Transform this nation”?’

    The importance of 11/17 for the Communists behind OWS #N17

    ‘From the mid-1970s until earlier this decade, the domestic Marxist terrorist group November 17 (N17) targeted Greek officials, as well as officials from NATO countries residing in Greece. During that period, five employees of the U.S. Embassy were murdered by N17, which was responsible for 23 killings altogether. Many of the N17 terrorists were apprehended by Greek authorities in 2002 and tried for their crimes. In 2003, Greek courts handed down multiple life sentences to key N17 members. A group appeals trial for the N17 convicts and two previously acquitted individuals opened in December 2005. The appeals trial essentially represented a new trial for the convicts, since the Greek judicial system allows new facts and evidence to be introduced in the appeals phase. The appeals trial lasted far longer than the original trial, in part due to the defense team’s tactics and the court’s decisions allowing defendants great leeway to make statements and interrupt witnesses.

    On May 14, the Athens Court of Appeals issued consolidated sentences in the N17 appeals trial. There were 226 counts of major felonies (murder, attempted murder, attacks with explosives) in the original trial, resulting in convictions on 224 counts. The appeal proceedings involved de novo review of 225 counts (the public prosecutor appealed one acquittal on behalf of the United States). During the appeal proceedings, six counts became time-barred under Greek law. Of the 219 counts remaining, convictions were sustained on 218. The six members of the operational core of N17 received a total of 44 life sentences. Seven members received various prison terms. Six of those originally charged were either acquitted or prosecutions were time-barred under Greek law.’

    Exploitation of the useful idiots by Greek Communist con artists. A word of warning:

    Beware of geeks bearing grifts.

    I like that “RESIST AUSTERITY” crap on the bottom image.

    In other words, keep on spending, spending, and spending as if there were no consequences for doing so.

    The poster is insulting them for being followers of something they don’t understand, and making the N0v 17. claim himself.

    WHat part of “Hippies freaks..like sheep to the slaughter. LEARN what you are matching (sic) for”
    doesn’t sound like he’s disparaging them?

    That propaganda piece tells me that these morons are delusional. They think that their criminal behavior and petty whining, and the police crackdown, is akin to the Tiananmen Square massacre.

    Herman Cain says OWS out to “destroy” America

    [In New Hampshire on Thursday, Cain accused the protesters of “trying
    to destroy the greatest nation in the world”
    with plans to stop traffic and
    subway commuters. He accused them of trying “to infringe upon people’s
    right and liberty to go to work.”


    Later in Nashua Cain joked with the crowd about his much covered
    “pause” taken when he was answering a question about Libya recently
    and poking fun at the media’s attention to the story. “They spend more
    time focusing on when I’m not talking then when the other candidates are
    he said. “Here’s the point that they’re missing: I think before I
    speak. I know that’s a novel idea.”

    He added, “The people that are on the Cain train don’t get off because
    of that crap. And I know that’s not a politically correct word.”

    How Congress Occupied Wall Street


    [Mark Twain famously wrote, “There is no distinctly native American
    criminal class except Congress.” Peter Schweizer’s new book, “Throw
    Them All Out,” reveals this permanent political class in all its arrogant
    glory. ]

    hah, is it any wonder Bush tried 17
    times but couldn’t get anywhere..

    “This call for real reform must transcend political parties. The grass-roots
    movements of the right and the left should embrace this. The tea party’s
    mission has always been opposition to waste and crony capitalism, and the
    Occupy protesters must realize that Washington politicians have been
    “Occupying Wall Street” long before anyone pitched a tent in Zuccotti Park.”

    Amen Sarah, Amen..


  • Wow, Jim Hoft, you’re a freaking genius. You copied a portion of the forum (as in the thing where anyone can post anything they want without sources or accuracy) and listed it as an entire movement’s stated objective. That’d be like me taking a snippet of this thread and citing it as fact about how conservatives get their news. Although given the level of intellect of some of the responses, it doesn’t seem like I’m that far off…
