Far Left Marine-Hating Hero Scott Olsen Releases First Statement Since He Was Injured at Occupy Oakland Riots

Left-wing hero, Jew-basher and founder of “I Hate the Marines.com” website Scott Olsen made a statement last night to his anti-American supporters across the nation. Olsen was hurt at an Occupy Oakland riot in October. However, according to police statements, he was not injured by local deputies. Olsen was hit by a projectile thrown by the protesters.

Olsen released a statement last night.

It was Olsen’s first communication since he was seen texting right after he suffered injuries at the Occupy Oakland riots.

Olsen says his Freedom of Speech was taken from him by police during violent riots by Obama-endorsed Occupy Oakland goons.
Reuters reported:

Ex-Marine Scott Olsen, whose injury during clashes between Oakland police and demonstrators gave impetus to anti-Wall Street protests, said on Sunday he is “feeling a lot better” in his first public statement since his injury.

In a message posted to social networking site Google Plus, 24-year-old Olsen thanked those who had been tracking his progress for their outpouring of support.

“I’m feeling a lot better, with a long road in front of me,” Olsen wrote. “After my freedom of speech was quite literally taken from me, my speech is coming back but I’ve got a lot of work to do with rehab.”

The post is accompanied by a photo of Olsen, smiling with a neck brace on and a visible scar on his forehead.

“Thank you for all of your support, it has meant the world to me,” he continued. “You’ll be hearing more from me in the near future and soon enough we’ll see you in our streets!”

Olsen was released from the hospital late last week, his friend Adele Carpenter, 29, told Reuters.
