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 the Service Employees International Union (SEIU)?

Answer: They are being hit with a RICO lawsuit!

Big Government reports:

After years of being harassed by the purple people beaters, one company has finally said ENOUGH.

In a press release issued Thursday, Sodexo USA announced that the company has filed a civil lawsuit against the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) under the Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act., accusing the union of engaging in an “illegal campaign of extortion.”  The lawsuit representing Sodexo is Hunton & Williams – the same firm SEIU and its allies have accused of launching a “dirty tricks” campaign against them in retaliation for their anti-Chamber of Commerce campaigns.

One of the largest food services and facilities management companies in the world, Sodexo is the provider of choice for most schools, universities, companies, hotels, prisons and other facilities that outsource their cafeteria and food catering operations, and for those that outsource industrial cleaning services.  SEIU has been incessantly battering Sodexo since 2007, in its desire to unionize some of its nearly 400,000 employees, many of them hotel and food service workers.  Exacerbating the tensions was a longstanding turf war between SEIU and UNITE HERE over hotel and casino workers, which often spilled over into SEIU’s antics prior to the settlement the warring unions reached this past summer.

Sodexo USA has filed the lawsuit in an attempt to halt the over-the-top harassment from SEIU, alleging that many of the acts are very serious and outside of the normal realm of union tactics, including acts of ” SEIU blackmail, vandalism, trespass, harassment, and lobbying law violations designed to steer business away from Sodexo USA and harm the company.” [emphasis added]

Aside from some of its usual corporate smear campaign tactics, certain organizers in the SEIU subscribed to some especially nasty, and frankly repulsive, tactics:

The complaint alleges that the SEIU, in face to face meetings, threatened Sodexo USA’s executives that it would harm Sodexo USA’s business unless they gave in to the union, and then carried out its threats through egregious behavior, including:

  • throwing plastic roaches onto food being served by Sodexo USA at a high profile event;
  • scaring hospital patients by insinuating that Sodexo USA food contained bugs, rat droppings, mold and flies;
  • lying to interfere with Sodexo USA business and sneaking into elementary schools to avoid security;
  • violating lobbying laws to steer business away from Sodexo USA, even at the risk of costing Sodexo USA employees their jobs; and
  • harassing Sodexo USA employees by threatening to accuse them of wrongdoing.

This is only the beginning. It will be interesting to see how this lawsuit turns out.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked some SEIU protesters at the pro-public union SEIU rally outside the Colorado Capitol in Denver?

Answer: They decided to harass an African-American Tea Partier who was participating in the counter-rally.

The Blaze reports:

During a pro-union rally at Colorado’s State Capitol yesterday, some alleged SEIU union supporters got into a shouting match with a black Tea Partier. But the conversation wasn’t just a loud, heated exchange. It got very personal when two union supporters ganged up on the conservative, one of them calling him “uneducated” and another asking him if he has any children “that he claims”.

According to RedWhiteBlueNews.com, the woman in red was later asked what she meant by her comments about the man’s children. “She said the black conservative was such a ‘free spirit’ that she assumed he would possibly not own up to the responsibility of being a father,” the site says.

Notice how the SEIU protester calls the Black conservative “uneducated” while also claiming he is “emmoral”… The only uneducated person in the video clip above is the SEIU protester. It’s pronounced “immoral” by the way.

Typical and classless.

*UPDATE* – February 23, 2011 – 1:23 PM.

The same group of protesters, who called the Black conservative “educated”, chanted “U-S-A” while waving a Mexican flag:

Oops!

Wonder what you would find if you frisked John Gage who is the President of the American Federation of Government Employees?

Answer: He believes the people who want to cut spending are “mentally retarded.”

Wow… Tell us what you really think Mr. Gage.

He must have not received the memo informing him that public-sector pensions are a huge burden on local, state, and federal government budgets. Ultimately, something has to and will be done.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the “One Nation Working Together” rally in Washington D.C. yesterday?

Answer: Some angry and intolerant liberals.

Human Events reports:

A liberal protester at the “One Nation Working Together” march physically assaulted a HUMAN EVENTS reporter who was videotaping Rep. Charlie Rangel (D.-N.Y) at the event at the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

The reporter, Emily Miller, was first hit from behind while she was taping Rangel as the Harlem congressman glad-handed supporters in front of the Lincoln Memorial. Miss Miller is heard on the video saying, “Please don’t hit me.” The protester proceeds to yell at the reporter, “Well get out of the way! What do you think this is? A–hole.” The activist was attempting to meet Rangel herself. Miss Miller continued videotaping the event, when suddenly the same unhinged protester lunged at her, hit her on the arm, and yelled, “Don’t take my picture.”

Apparently the angry lady in the video didn’t realize that if something is in a public place, you are entitled to photograph it.

Besides the violent incident, Nick Gillespie and Reason TV put together a video of what they witnessed at the rally:

Also, make sure you check out Weasel Zippers’ picture of the day and the mess these liberals left behind. They even managed to trash the World War II memorial… Seriously, why do liberals (who are supposedly more interested in the environment) always litter wherever they rally?

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the unions in California?

Answer: They are putting children’s lives at risk so they can demand an expansion of nursing positions in schools.

Nowadays, the question needs to be asked: Who’s really on the side of the children? Hint: Not the unions and never let them tell you any different! The video (posted above) from Reason TV is just another example of how big-labor is crippling our country:

Epilepsy advocates like the Epilepsy Foundation and physicians groups like the California Medical Association have lined up to support the bill. Unions representing teachers, nurses, and other public employees have lined up in opposition, claiming the bill would put children in danger. Their solution: hire more school nurses.

“The unions are not on the side of the kids,” says DeLorenzo who believes unions are more interested in expanding their ranks than protecting epileptic children.

“It’s exactly the opposite,” says Gayle McClean, southern section president of the California School Nurses Organization and a member of the California Teachers Association. “We care deeply for children and we want them to receive the most appropriate care and that means they need a licensed medical person caring for them.”

Sacramento lawmakers sided with unions and have refused to bring the bill up for a vote. The bill will officially expire on August 31.

Remember, the FDA signed off on the use of Diastat and the syringe by non-medical personnel with just a little training. Protecting union jobs rather than saving epileptic children? This is absolutely appalling, but unfortunately it’s not surprising to me at all either. The State of California is overrun with governmental idiocy from the Left and big-labor unions (like the California Teachers Associationstuff their Democratic candidates’ pockets faster than a bank robber inside a vault when it comes to their campaigns.

Oh well… In the end, it’s just a matter of life and death. No biggie! 🙄

Don't mess with Coakley! Haha.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the Martha Coakley headquarters?

Answer: Some really angry Coakley campaign/union members!

HAHA! Don’t mess with these guys.

Make sure you checkout what the guy says at the 45 second mark:

I’m going to call the police if she continues to film me on private property. She’s in violation of my rights… my civil rights, which we still have despite Nazis like you!

Jeez… All they wanted to do was get a few shots from inside the headquarters, but I guess that’s not possible because they’re too “bias.” Oh well… This just hurts Coakley’s campaign even more.

Props to Feed Your ADHD!
