A Kentucky Republican has posted a rather disturbing comment on Facebook about the Wall Street protesters. Steve Frank, city commissioner of Covington, Kentucky apparently feels like killing the protesters occupying Wall Street just as the Taliban feels like killing American soldiers in Afghanistan.
In a post on October 9th, Frank wrote, “Turn out the lights on the Occupiers, I feel like going Taliban on them!!! The Taliban, as they see it is resisting occupation. I am resisting the Occupiers and very proud to be a 1%’er. I figured that the irony would be lost on most of the dummies in Occupation Nation who oppose the war in Afganistan because they see us as occupiers. I happen to oppose the war too but for highly different grounds. PS I am proud of our troops and have a son in harm’s way.”
So, Frank considers himself part of the 1% and wants to kill Americans who oppose them. To compare yourself to the Taliban is pretty bad. Frank is essentially saying that the Republican Party and the top 1% of Americans are the US version of the Taliban, the group that supports terrorism against America. The Taliban must be thrilled to hear that they have Republican support. It’s clear now that the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ movement has been fighting the Taliban all this time. We should thank Steve Frank for clearing that up.
