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…

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

Staying classy as always…

If you haven’t seen it already, the College Republican National Committee (CRNC) released a great ad yesterday targeting young voters.

The Daily Caller reports:

The College Republican National Committee (CRNC) is launching a television ad in Iowa this week with the goal of energizing young voters to get involved in the political process in a state that will host the first electoral contest of the presidential primary season.

Unlike typical political ads, the CRNC spot features pop culture references and an upbeat tempo with young people asking viewers about the $5 trillion per decade interest on the national debt. It calls on Iowa’s college students to ask presidential candidates, who will be courting their state’s voters over the coming months, what their plan is to fix the deficit?

Best part of the ad: It immediately takes President Obama’s “Win the Future” slogan and turns it against him. Bravo!

The real challenge behind this new ad will be to actually break through to the college demographic later down the road. Liberal cesspools, commonly known as “college campuses”, do a great job at keeping liberal group-think in and conservative philosophy out. Young people are known to be rebellious, but why are they supporting the Democratic Party who want to control their lives? Chris Long, president of the Intercollegiate Studies Institute, thinks he might have an answer:

From Long’s perspective, campuses fail to provide an understanding of the intellectual foundations of conservatism, leaving young people with no viable alternative to liberalism, with the possible exception of libertarianism.

Even if young people have a sensibility that they’re conservative, Long said, they are rarely steeped in conservative philosophy. That’s why the mission of ISI is to reinvigorate the “traditional liberal arts education” on college campuses and help students “understand what it means to be an effective citizen in today’s world.”

That’s no easy task. With the Obama administration on track to leave the next generation a back-breaking amount of debt and an economy in shambles, students might have to be “mugged by reality” before they’ll come to their senses about the future of the country, Long suggested. The struggle of ISI is to engage students in a discussion about first principles “before they get their first paycheck and half the money’s taken away.”

Hopefully 2012 will be a different story, but I am not holding my breath.

ACORNstudents copy

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the Student Loans Bill that was passed in the House today?

Answer: The good… and the terrible.

Well, it finally seems ACORN is drastically losing the fight after the undercover videos were released last week! The House decided to cut all funding to ACORN today in the Student Loans Bill. And once again, the final vote was mainly bipartisan: 345-75.

Seems great news, right!? Well, not entirely. Turns the Student Loans Bill basically sets up an all-government run program. What’s that mean? Basically single-payer for student loans… Yahoo reports:

The biggest change in U.S. higher education finance in 35 years was approved on Thursday by the House of Representatives, handing a defeat to major banks and student loan giant Sallie Mae.

Lawmakers voted 253-171 in favor of legislation that would cut the banks and Sallie Mae out of a large slice of the $92 billion college student loan business, shifting most lending into a program run by theU.S. Education Department.

The bill, supported by the White House, will go next to the Senate for further consideration.

“This bill is an expansion of the government … a government takeover of an industry,” said Representative John Kline, the education committee’s top Republican.

Those Dems are sneaky, aren’t they? Another overhaul of another industry, of course! We can honestly all question: What industry will the government takeover next?

Hmm… With the Obama Adminstration, it is safe to say the possibilities are endless!
