Video and description by National Review’s The Corner:

[A] small part of the protest was downright unpleasant. Moments after I arrived, I saw a Jewish gentleman being berated when he criticized a protester. (Shortly after my video camera was switched off, he (inexplicably) shouted the N-word at the same man.)

By the way, during the course of his performance, he told me that he was white, Puerto Rican, Jewish, and African-American. I suggested he was, in fact, Confused, but he didn’t take much to that.

Video courtesy of KOVR-TV and video description from The Blaze:

As the Occupy Wall Street protests surge in size and spread across the country, the Occupy Sacramento offshoot appears to be both confused, and angry when asked simple questions about their purpose.

About 300 protestors showed up in a downtown Sacramento park Thursday morning to kick off the Occupy Sacramento movement, and they did not take kindly to the the presence of a local CBS reporter. They also couldn‘t agree on why they’re there.

Video and description by The Right Scoop:

Andrew Breitbart decided to go to Occupy Los Angeles to ask questions of the protesters and before you know it he had an SEIU thug instructed to follow him around everywhere he went and try to keep people from answering questions. One of Andrew’s questions they were trying to keep people from answering was simply “Capitalism: Thumbs Up Or Thumbs Down?”

Video from The Blaze and description from The Daily Caller:

As “Occupy Wall Street” protests continue to gain steam and attract media attention, several videos of protesters spewing anti-Semitic language are sparking new concerns about the protesters and their messages.

Sadly, the folks at these “protests” are going after the police as well:

The “Occupy Wall Street” movement came to the Big Easy on Thursday, but its expression of varied and often clashing political messages quickly turned difficult.

As about 500 New Orleans protesters marched, complete with a small brass band, from Orleans Parish Prison to the Federal Reserve and then inside City Hall, one activist told The Daily Caller she heard shouts of “Kill the cops!”

Heck, even liberal radio hosts can’t hold back their anger:

Liberal talk radio host Mike Malloy told a group of protestors to tell the so-called “corporate state” to “go f—k yourselves.”

Malloy made his remarks from a stage set up at Freedom Plaza in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, where a large crowd was protesting, in similar fashion to the Occupy Wall Street protests in New York City.

Classy… 

This is definitely NOT the Tea Party.

Note: I will update this post as more videos come in. Trust me, there will definitely be more.

*UPDATE* – October 9, 2011 – 1:45 AM

Unbelievable. Occupy DC protesters tried their best to raid the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum today in Washington, D.C. NBC reports:

According to Smithsonian spokesperson Linda St. Thomas, a crowd of “about 100 to 200 people” tried to enter through the museum’s Mall entrance.

“They were carrying signs and a lot of protest materials,” St. Thomas said in a statement. “You cannot bring that stuff into the museum under any circumstances.”

According to St. Thomas, the crowd tried to shove its way into the museum after being denied entry by security.

“One security guard was grabbed and pinned against the wall. He could not extract himself,” the spokesperson said. “Another security guard came over to help him and ended up pepper-spraying one person.”

Also, notice the few kids trying to make their way into the building with the masks covering their faces. Hmm… If I was planning on visiting a museum I don’t think I would wear a mask that covered my face. But on the other hand, if I was planning on robbing a bank or attempting to cause chaos… Well, that would be a different story.

Here’s more:

Yup… That’s an angry “Occupier” throwing out a homophobic slur at the camera. Also, notice the kid at the end of the clip remove his shirt and ask for a fight.

Once again, stay classy lefties.

H/t Townhall for the video:

Oh my…

*UPDATE* – October 19, 2011 – 12:38 AM

Even Geraldo Rivera, who seems oddly comfortable at these so-called “protests”, got attacked by a loon with powder:

Staying classy as always…

Wonder what you would find if you frisked C-SPAN’s broadcasting schedule tomorrow?

Answer: They will be broadcasting Glenn Beck’s Restoring Honor Rally.

Media Bistro reports:

C-SPAN will be covering Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally at the Lincoln Memorial this Saturday, with Sarah Palin among those expected to attend. Coverage begins 10amET.

Beck was on the Mall again today taking another walk-through in preparation for Saturday.

C-SPAN also will cover the Rev. Al Sharpton’s “Reclaim the Dream” rally at Dunbar High School in Washington, DC. That event will be shown on C-SPAN later on Saturday. Rev. Sharpton will be a guest on C-SPAN’s live call-in interview program “Washington Journal” Saturday morning at 7:45am ET.

I wish I could be there, but unfortunately I am going to have to DVR the event. Tomorrow I will be at the Michigan Republican State Party Convention in East Lansing, MI campaigning for State Senator Cameron Brown who is running for Michigan Secretary of State.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked a group of atheist doctors?

Answer: They are twice as likely to make decisions that shorten the life span of terminally ill patients!

😯 Yikes! The Guardian reports:

Doctors who are atheist or agnostic are twice as likely to take decisions that might shorten the life of somebody who is terminally ill as doctors who are deeply religious – and doctors with strong religious convictions are less likely even to discuss such decisions with the patient, according to Professor Clive Seale, from the centre for health sciences at Barts and the London school of medicine and dentistry.

“If I were a patient facing end of life care, I would want to know what my doctor’s views were on religious matters – whether they are non-religious or religious and whether the doctor felt that would influence them in the kinds of decisions they were looking at,” said Seale.

A patient who wanted their life prolonged at all costs in the event of a terminal illness, or did not want it prolonged, should make sure they had a doctor who was in sympathy with this.

Doctors are influenced by their beliefs, just as other people are, said Seale.

“It is easy for clinicians to present themselves as neutral appliers of science, but values do come into it,” he said. […]

Seale’s study, published online today in the Journal of Medical Ethics, was based on a survey of doctors in specialisms likely to care for people at the end of life, such as neurology, elderly and palliative care but also general practice. More than 8,500 doctors were contacted and almost 4,000 responded.

Interesting study… I know which doctor I would be choosing.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the Ground Zero mosque?

Answer: Greg Gutfeld wants to raise money to build a Muslim gay bar next to the Ground Zero mosque.

What could possibly go wrong? After all, the mosque is suppose to be a “moderate cultural center”.

Liberals have been preaching “tolerance” while defending the Ground Zero mosque that has caused an enormous amount of legitimate outrage. Using the left’s argument against them, Greg Gutfeld figures that if we’re going to celebrate tolerance regardless of the sensitivities of the surrounding area, we mine as well go all out:

I’m announcing tonight, that I am planning to build and open the first gay bar that caters not only to the west, but also Islamic gay men. To best express my sincere desire for dialogue, the bar will be situated next to the mosque Park51, in an available commercial space.

This is not a joke. I’ve already spoken to a number of investors, who have pledged their support in this bipartisan bid for understanding and tolerance.

As you know, the Muslim faith doesn’t look kindly upon homosexuality, which is why I’m building this bar. It is an effort to break down barriers and reduce deadly homophobia in the Islamic world.

The goal, however, is not simply to open a typical gay bar, but one friendly to men of Islamic faith. An entire floor, for example, will feature non-alcoholic drinks, since booze is forbidden by the faith. The bar will be open all day and night, to accommodate men who would rather keep their sexuality under wraps – but still want to dance.

Bottom line: I hope that the mosque owners will be as open to the bar, as I am to the new mosque. After all, the belief driving them to open up their center near Ground Zero, is no different than mine.

My place, however, will have better music.

I wonder what Mayor Bloomberg thinks about this? Waiting…

Wonder what you would find if you frisked The New York Times today?

Answer: President Barack “The One” Obama… Of course.

Check out this massive, unbiased image of President Obama that’s stamped all over The New York Times website:

The New York Times.

Hmm… 🙄 Is Nola Lopez just trying to add a little ‘pizazz’ to a mysterious photograph of President Obama? Or is Nola Lopez trying to compare President Obama to Jesus? Let’s break it down:

  • If Ms. Lopez was actually trying to add a little ‘pizazz’ to the photograph, it would be quite fascinating to see how she’d treat a photograph of former President George W. Bush… Would there be nifty little designs tacked on to the photograph that displays him in a positive light? Hmm… I doubt that would happen.
  • If Ms. Lopez was trying to compare President Obama to Jesus… Well… That would not shock me either actually. After all, it is The Obama – Oops! I mean – New York Times… I am sure they have a picture of him on a wall somewhere with an alter added on.
  • Or perhaps it could be the third option: It’s simply just the Red Cross medical symbol photoshoped over a picture of President Obama that just so happens to have an odd, religious-like lighting to it. Interesting: If the Red Cross logo doesn’t originate from Christianity, then why do they have the Red Crescent for Islamic states?

Which one could it be? Either way, I think it’s safe to say that the liberal mainstream media has struck again! Oh well… They are failing miserably anyway.

Side-Note: Personally, I enjoyed the comment left by Year_Of_The_Dingo on Hot Air’s coverage of this story:

Maybe the Times is subliminally suggesting that Obama was born in Switzerland.

HAHA! Props.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the Texas college group ‘Atheist Agenda’?

Answer: Apparently they believe religion is the equivalent to porn.

Click the image above to watch the video. Sorry, I could not embed it.

I swear, some people will say and do anything to get a rise out of people. The mysterious Allahpundit – from Hot Air – breaks it down wonderfully:

A reminder that wherever there’s an opportunity to antagonize an innocent believer, we’ll be there. […] One: In case you’ve ever wondered why, even in a post-9/11 world, atheists rank below Muslimsin terms of traits the public dislikes in a politician, wonder no longer. Two: As dumb and distasteful as I find this, I can’t resist the dilemma it presents between acting on principle and doing the politically wise thing. Whenever that same dilemma comes up in a conservative context — look no further than Bunning’s stand tonight, although Rush’s “I hope he fails” comment is another example — I usually opt for the “politically wise” route and am derided for it in the comments. These tools are acting on principle too. Should they bottle it up instead to avoid alienating people, or is principle always the way to go?

Either way… How is the Bible or any other religious scriptures comparable to pornography? I guess I’ll just never understand atheists… Thank God! 😆

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the latest data obtained by Pew Research?

Answer: The most and least religious states.

I found this oddly interesting:

Only 22% of Alaskans say they attend religious services at least once a week, making Alaska the least religious state judged by this measure. In Utah and several Southern states, more than half of those surveyed by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life said they were weekly service attenders. Along with Alaskans, residents of Colorado, Arizona and Northeastern states were the least likely to attend religious services once a week or more. When measured against four indices of religiosity — the importance of religion in people’s lives, frequency of attendance at worship services, frequency of prayer and absolute certainty of belief in God — Mississippi stands out on all four, while several other Southern states also rank very high on the measures. Click on “read more” for the full and interactive graphic.

Side-Note: The reason Michigan is highlighted on the chart above is because it is my home state. I guess we are simply average in the Mitten… Haha.
