Predictable… Obama-Endorsed “Occupy Wall Street” Goons Deface 9-11 Memorial Statue in Zuccotti Park

What a surprise.
The Obama-endorsed “Occupy Wall Street” goons defaced the famous “Double Check” Statue in the park.

Via Barry Popik:

Seward Johnson’s 1982 sculpture “Double Check” for Liberty Park (near the World Trade Center) showed a very lifelike businessman sitting in the park. The businessman survived September 11, 2001 covered in debris. Johnson has called his sculpture an iconic “stand-in” for those who didn’t make it.

“Double Check” achieved iconic status when photographs showed it covered in ash and surrounded by debris. Then, when rescue workers and volunteers covered the sculpture with flowers, notes, pictures and hard hats, the bronze businessman nearly disappeared beneath the tributes.

Seward Johnson’s “Double Check” sculpture was dented but unbroken in the rain of 9/11 debris. It became a monument to survival as rescue workers put a hardhat and other mementoes on it.

Obviously, the #OWS goons don’t share that same sentiment.
