The Coast Guard has been called in to escort a ship to the Port of Longview to protect it from the democrat’s #Occupy criminal movement.
TDN.com reported:

The U.S. Coast Guard will escort the first ship coming to the EGT grain terminal at the Port of Longview this month, and the Occupy movement and local labor groups say they are planning to greet the vessel with a massive protest.

EGT officials say they have not scheduled a date for the ship’s arrival. The freighter is expected to haul thousands of tons of grain to Asia, but opposition groups are already marshaling their forces to support the lengthy protest by union dock workers at the grain terminal.

“We just want to swell the population of the city to show there are people behind us,” said Jeff Washburn, president of the Cowlitz Wahkiakum Central Labor Council, which passed a resolution calling for a protest this week.

He added that the labor council plans no attempt to stop the ship, a sentiment echoed in a similar call for protest by leaders of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union.

However, the Occupy movement it taking a more aggressive stance, calling for members nationwide to gather outside Port of Longview gates and thwart efforts to load the ship, said Paul Nipper, an organizer for Occupy Longview. The group shut down the ports coastwide, including Longview, Dec. 8.

The Coast Guard will deploy one or two vessels to escort the grain ship up the Columbia River, with more on call if necessary, said Lt. Lucas Elder, a spokesman for Coast Guard’s Portland-based marine safety unit. Other law-enforcement agencies will also be present, he said.

  1. When will the OWAss movement qualify as domestic terrorism? Never under this criminally run administration.

  2. Certainly not before the election. Why would Obama contradict his base?

  3. Ron Paul is a kook nut

  4. They DNC are setting up the support system to attack Rommeny for his association with Bain Capital as being a barbarian at the gate styled american industry destructo. Organized disruptions like this may qualify for terrorism or treason classification since it is being lead by the party in power. The RNC better come up with a response plan

  5. Order out of chaos. They create the problem and then offer the solution. That is how they pose as the saviors and implement change.

    Brought to you by the New World Order.

  6. What exactly are they protesting at the docks? Feeding the Asians? The extortion of
    the unions at the terminals? The fact that every item of clothing on their backs came in
    by ship? The carbon footprint of the ships?

  7. This is just a court-constrained union getting these useful idiots to do the union’s wishes. The union has a restraining order on it about the port, they have tried in the past to shut it down and have destroyed products and property.

  8. Obama’s Occupy Army is protesting grain exports? Seriously? The price of bread is that high? People starving? What happened to Ms President’s obesity program; it worked too well?

  9. So we now have the activation of the US military in order to combat threats and criminal activity of left wing organizations.
    Truth is, the population centers are completely run by democrat machines that will call these criminal actions “free speech” and their marxist-approving local media will support that claim.
    How stupid must the American public be not to see this as a game changer? Or are they in agreement with the left? Either way, this doesn’t bode well for the future of the U.S.

  10. They’re protesting grain exports?

    They seriously want people in other countries to starve?

  11. Fire on them.

  12. I would imagine the grain is being exported under government license. As military assistance is already being used to get the ship into port, the National Guard should be placed on the gates, and aboard any trucks or trains used to move the grain to the ship. Armed, locked and loaded, and weapons free in order to prevent the interferrence with the movement of this cargo by any means neccessary.
