Conservative reaction to Occupy Wall Street (OWS) does not fail. What is amazing is the scourge from the Right is only now just starting. Their party, elected leaders, and sycophants have been relatively quiet. The OWS is four weeks into their grass-roots protest. Negative comments this week have increased like a newly coined GOP talking point.
Did the Right think the protest would fade-away after a couple of weeks? How about their amazement when word spread that the OWS is having success with forming groups, and conducting protests in other major U.S. cities? If you can place your mind in a Right-thinking sort of way, consider the heartburn caused as unions joined in the New York protest. Heart palpitations must surely follow as Van Jones, Rebuild The Dream, movement is rumored to have interest in affiliation with the movement.
OK, enough is enough!
They gave the President a stiff-arm on his jobs bill, and grew angry as Harry Reid enacted the nuclear option in the U.S. Senate. But, those for the Right are minor issues, this ‘mob’ thing is growing and spreading. Now the Right has a situation that is completely unacceptable to them. What did they do? They charged out of their offices, joined their television P/R network, FOX News, and their radio demagogues in blasting the OWS and the New York ‘mob.’
Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.)
“The fact is these people are anarchists. They have no idea what they’re doing out there,” King said. “They have no sense of purpose other than a basically anti-American tone and anti-capitalist. It’s a ragtag mob basically.”
Herman Cain (leading GOP presidential candidate)
GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain reiterated his criticism of the Occupy Wall Street protesters Friday, saying the groups are “anti-capitalism” and “anti-free market.”
“They are not working on the right problem,” Cain said at a conservative convention in Washington. “Wall Street didn’t write those failed policies. Wall Street didn’t spend a trillion dollars. You can demonstrate all you want on Wall Street, the problem is 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.”
Representative Bachus (Financial Service Chair)
“Occupy Wall Street is ‘Misdirected’.
Representative Broun (Tea Party GOP Georgia)
“They don’t know why they’re there. They’re just mad,” Broun told us. “This attack upon business, attack upon industry, attack upon freedom – and I think that’s what this is all about.”
House Majority Leader Cantor
“This administration’s failed policies have resulted in an assault on many of our nation’s bedrock principles,” he said. “If you read the newspapers today, I, for one, am increasingly concerned about the growing mobs occupying Wall Street and the other cities across the country. And believe it or not, some in this town, have actually condoned the pitting of Americans against Americans. But you sent us here to fight for you and all Americans.”
Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah,
“They’re alarming, and I’ll tell you we are going to get more of it. We are going to have riots in this country because of what these people are doing,” Hatch told Utah reporters on Thursday.
….. said they are in reaction to President Obama’s failed leadership.
“The challenge to Republicans is simple,” Gingrich said. “We have to remind them that in America, you get to create a revolution every two years. It’s called an election,” he said as the audience, packed to overflow capacity, cheered.
Sen. Rand Paul (R. Ky.) [this man is nuts]
……. on Fox Business warned Thursday that the “Occupy Wall Street” protest in New York City could become violent thanks, in part, to President Barack Obama.
“As far as this Occupy Wall Street movement goes, you know I see it sort of like a Paris mob,” he said. “I see the president’s rhetoric of envy inflaming the public.”
Sen. Paul said he “hoped” that the “Parisian mob” that Obama was inflaming didn’t result in “lawlessness” where protesters looted iPhones, “because rich people don’t deserve to have them.”
How about let’s check-in on the GOP Public relations and Entertainment Channel (Fox News)
“..you don’t believe in freedom”.
O’Reilly (GAWKER Reports)
As you probably can guess, O’Reilly thinks they’re a bunch of loony, far-left, America-hating anarchists who want to burn down all the stores and kill us all.
Cavuto (Altogether crafty, cannot do it himself, guess how he trots out?)
Cavuto’s guest for the segment yesterday (10/4/11) was Mark Meckler, co-founder of Tea Party Patriots. Cavuto began by inciting Meckler. “These Wall Street protestors are all but rock stars. A lot of you tea party guys were all but just rocks-in-your-head stars.”
“These people are not …law abiding citizens,” Meckler accused. They’re camping in a park where camping isn’t allowed. They’re breaking the laws on the Brooklyn Bridge. That’s not Tea Party behavior. That’s not America-loving behavior.”
Stephen Hayes (Fox)
“This Is Not Going To Amount Of Any Kind Of A Serious Movement”
GOP Radio Demagogues
Limbaugh (This man is insane)
Occupy Wall Street protests that are spreading across the country.
“There’s no doubt in my mind that the White House is behind this,” he said. “Obama is setting up riots. He is fanning the flames.”
The “anarchists” and “union thugs” who are rallying against corporate greed are Obama’s constituents, Limbaugh said.
“Occupy Wall Street is his base,” he said. “Those are his foot soldiers.”
“These people are tools,” he continued. “They are abject tools. They are an embarrassment. The Vietnam War crowd is embarrassed at this bunch — how stupid they are. And then to be steered on to the Brooklyn Bridge where they can be charge with a crime for obstructing a roadway — they’re just a bunch of idiots.”
And he added many of the protesters have a flawed perception of their effectiveness.
“These protests, I’m telling you I just have to laugh,” he said. “They’re such rank amateurs and they think they’re so tough. They think they’re so powerful. The establishment that they hate is just using them … It’s fascinating to watch these people as they go out and protest the very thing they’re voting for.”
Beck (no comment necessary)
Occupy Wall Street Is “Only Interested In Destruction,” Which “Leads To Gas Chambers,” “Guillotines,” “Mao.”
The GOP has so completely devoted the past week to slamming the Occupy Wall Street movement, I thought it would be good to show a few pictures of the anarchist mob. When people place themselves in position of the anarchist, they deserve to be exposed. Their un-Americanism should be as visible as the words of their politicians.
This treatise would not be complete without a couple of pictures of Maoist protesters; people who are dangerous to the nation in every sense, as they represent America. As Mitt Romney said, “dangerous”.
Yes, those anarchist in the first 5 pictures are about as unAmerican as they come!
