Karl Rove Yells At Occupy Baltimore Protesters, Says They Have No Right To Occupy America

Author: November 16, 2011 10:06 am

During an appearance at Johns Hopkins University, Occupy Baltimore protesters interrupted a speech by Karl Rove. Protesters yelled “Mic check!” from among the audience and said , “Karl Rove is the architect of Occupy Iraq, the architect of Occupy Afghanistan!” That’s when Rove flipped out and began yelling at the protesters.

Rove asked, “Who gave you the right to occupy America?” Chants of “We are the 99 percent!” broke out and Rove responded, “No you’re not! You wanna keep jumping up and yelling that you’re the 99 percent? How presumptuous and arrogant can you think you are!”

Here’s the video:

Apparently Rove forgot about the Constitution and the Bill of Rights like he did during the Bush Administration. Americans have the right to protest and have freedom of speech. Those rights were given to us by the Founding generation. Rove is petulant child who has no business calling himself an American if he can’t even remember that. He basically inferred that the protesters have no rights as Americans. You have to applaud the protesters. They certainly got under Rove’s skin.

  • karl rowe is a facist and we are living in a facist country, wake up people can’t you hear the evil everytime a repud speaks

  • “No, they’re inalienable rights guaranteed by the constitution. Rights given can be taken away. But you leftists like that, don’t you?”
    I’d respond to that if it made any sense.
    A crazy dig by a crazy person.

  • For the sake of accuracy, this wasn’t even a free speech issue at all, to be honest. Rove was making a paid appearance and this guerilla civil disobedience action was designed to sabotage the delivery of his “product”.

    And for the sake of fairness I ask you to observe this through the lens of those who had to put up with the exact same tactics as done by the tea baggers not too long ago.

    Don’t like it when the shoe is on the other foot Steve?
    Tough titty, because it most definitely is on the other foot, and those feet are coming for you and the rest of your authoritarian bootlicker buddies. Head for the hills if you can’t handle turnabout and karma. It’s a real bitch, ain’t it?

  • The author of this piece is a little ignorant.

    “Americans have the right to protest and have freedom of speech. Those rights were given to us by the Founding generation.”

    No, they’re inalienable rights guaranteed by the constitution. Rights given can be taken away. But you leftists like that, don’t you?
