MoveOn.org: "Don't Be Stupid, Be Democrats."

From me: "Don't Be An Ass(*), Be Republicans."

(*) Ass as in Donkey or Burro.

"Shelby" elected leader of Occupy Denver

That doesn't sound too bad. The "leaderless" (according to Micheal Moore (yes, the filmmaker)) "Occupy" movement elected a leader.

According to babynames.com, Shelby(*) is a girl's name that means "From The Town In The Hollow." Shelby was elected after the Denver leaders asked the "Occupy" movement to appoint a leader that they could speak with.

That doesn't sound too bad, does it? A politically-active twenty-something to speak as the movement's leader?

There's just one slight problem. The link: http://newsfeed.time.com/2011/11/09/every-dog-has-its-day-occupy-denver-elects-a-canine-leader/ (Yes, from Time Magazine.)

Denver's "Occupy" movement's leader is a dog. Yes, you read that correctly.

" It’s one small step for a canine, one giant leap for canine-kind.

" Occupy Denver’s newly elected official leader is young, politically independent and has mixed ancestry. If it sounds too good to be true, that’s because it almost is: that leader is a dog. "

Now I know I'm stupid (because the Democrats have told me so) but it would seem to me that if they were serious, they'd elect an actual person as their leader. Appointing a dog seems to me to be a deliberate slap in the face.

Or am I wrong?

Article: Dozens of hypodermic needles found at Zuccotti Park

The link: http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2011/11/16/dozens-of-hypodermic-needles-found-among-trash-removed-from-zuccotti-park/

" NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – What was going on in Zuccotti Park?
Some of the activity that went down there was well documented. There were allegations of sexual assault. There were the growing health concerns. And CBS 2 cameras caught topless women dancing there.

" But what else may have been cooking?" (Links are CBSlocal's and are left intact.)

Well, the article goes on to state that " Among the items found during the scouring of the park: At least two dozen hypodermic needles. "

At least two dozen. At least.

Let's suppose for just a second that ONE such needle had been found during a Tea Party Protest. You and I both know where I'm going with this. But what the hell, right?

Tell me: How many more "But what the hell, right?" is it going to take?

The Tea Party Protests and the "Occupy" movement are two different things. THEY ARE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.

But I'm looking at Moveon.org's website now: http://front.moveon.org/ and in the upper-left corner you can see a link to an advert. It reads: "Don't Be Stupid, Be Democrats" Yes, I had thought part of liberalism was not to condescend or to call names.

And in the upper-RIGHT corner we see this: " Help fight the right-wing spin machine with the best progressive videos and graphics from around the web, delivered daily. "

You gotta love that. The "...right-wing spin machine..." Well, since MSNBC has officially called itself the "place for progressives," (according to their own president!) I guess that (by your own reasoning) makes them part of the "...left-wing spin machine...", ne?

Utah Wells Fargo hit with Molotov Cocktail

The link: http://www.abc4.com/content/news/top_stories/story/UPDATE-Wells-Fargo-bank-branch-hit-with-Molotov/9WLAXByPnkypvwQlhWza9g.cspx

I will quote only one line from the story (since the update (which is what the link is to) is so short):

" Responders do note that the act does not appear to part of the nationwide "Occupy Movement." "

Oh, really? Can they absolutely confirm that? Or are they saying it's yet another "lone wolf" before all the facts are in?

Suppose just for a second that during a Tea Party Protest one of the protesters had said they were going to "fire-bomb" buildings, as one of the "Occupy" protesters in New York did. You and I both know the press would be all over the story (and rightly so!) pontificating far and wide about how the act "absolutely proved" that the Tea Party people were "RAAAAACIST" and "filled with hate" and "bigots" and (insert epithet here). Some federal official would then take his (or her) 15 minutes of camera time and pontificate about how tighter controls were needed.

Instead, this happens AFTER an "Occupy" protester openly calls for buildings to be "fire-bombed" and stated that he was going to throw such a device (a Molotov) at Macy's. Are you really going to tell me (before all the facts are in, no less) that this is absolutely NOT related?

Come on.

Am I stating that it absolutely IS related? Nope. I'm waiting for all the facts to come in. Pity others can't be bothered to do the same.

From those oh-so-polite "Occupy" people

(Screenshot)

The links that we’re interested are on the right hand side of the screen. Since they’re so hard to read (yes, they are small aren’t they?) I’ll spell what they are and then give the link to each article. But there is a serious point to this.

Suppose just for a second that some of these shenanigans had taken place during a Tea Party Protest. The MSM would be all over the story (and rightly so!)

Well, as it turns out, there were no murders at a Tea Party Protest, yet have been at least one at the “Occupy” events. This is from the Huffington Post (yes, it’s a liberal blog, but it also makes my point for me quite well … for they quote from the Associated Press.)

The link: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/11/04/occupy-oakland-costs_n_1077443.html

“OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- The tear gas clouds have cleared, graffiti has been scrubbed off buildings and shattered glass has been swept away.

(CLICK HERE OR SCROLL DOWN FOR LATEST UPDATES)
As downtown Oakland attempts to get back to normal – which for now seems to include a massive Occupy Wall Street tent encampment in front of city hall – the costs of the movement on the long-struggling city are just starting to come into focus.

And the divisions over the violent tactics that capped an otherwise peaceful day of protest may be taking a toll on the movement itself.” (Link is the Huffington Post’s and is left intact. Emphasis added.)

So, from the liberal Huffington Post, we find out that at Occupy Oakland there has been graffiti, smashed windows (glass), tear gas clouds, and ‘…violent tactics…’

Well, it just so happens the shooting was captured on tape. The link: http://www.glennbeck.com/2011/11/11/shock-video-shootings-at-occupy-oakland-captured-on-tape/

(NOTE: Yes, this is to Glenn Beck’s site.)

But remember the DemocraticUnderground site calling it a lie? Turns out that USA Today has the article too: http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/story/2011-11-11/occupy-deaths/51164980/1?csp=34news

According to USA Today, one was at Occupy Oakland, the other death was at Occupy Vermont.
BUT WAIT! There were … oh no, there weren’t. Sorry, libs.

And then there’s this: http://newsfeed.time.com/2011/11/08/woman-dies-of-suspected-overdose-at-occupy-vancouver/ (Yes, libs: Time Magazine.)

The realities of the Occupy movement are proving grim. A woman at the Occupy Vancouver camp died Saturday after a suspected drug overdose. The woman, in her twenties, was found in a tent by a fellow protestor, apparently “unresponsive.” She was rushed to the hospital by paramedics, but was later pronounced dead.

Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson gave a statement about the “really tragic circumstances,” saying that it “clearly demonstrates that the situation in camp has deteriorated.” Robertson went on to say it was time to end the encampment, and city officials issued a notice on Monday to protestors, telling them to immediately pack up the tent city and leave the Vancouver Art Gallery plaza. “ (Link is Time’s and is left intact. Emphasis added.)

Turns out there was another overdose death in Salt Lake City due to the “Occupy” protest and a near-death in Toronto.

Get the idea yet? Nothing even remotely similar happened during a Tea Party Protest, yet those who routinely bash the Tea Party events due to their “RACISM” and “Barack-bashing” remain strangely mute on these issues.

From Michelle Malkin’s site: http://michellemalkin.com/2011/11/03/more-ugly-occupy-oakland-pictures-that-wont-make-msm-front-pages/

I’m going to quote three of the pictures: one says “Death to Capitalism”, another says “Capitalism killed my rights” and the third says “AX the 1%. ABOLISH BANKS & WAGE SLAVERY. FIGHT DIRECTLY FOR COMMUNISIM!” And at the bottom they were nice enough to put who sponsored the sign: “INTERNATIONAL COMMUNIST WORKERS’ PARTY”

Of course, had we seen that at a Tea Party Protest, the MSM would’ve been all over it. But these are communists and socialists and we know of at least one Obama front group behind the movement, so what the hell, right?

“ Fears expressed by some that the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ movement is being hijacked by the Democratic Party establishment have intensified after the official OWS website announced that it “stands in solidarity” with MoveOn.org, a lobbying group for the Wall Street-backed Obama administration.

“ The front page of the http://occupywallst.org/ proudly announces that numerous union groups will be present in New York today to join demonstrators in marches taking place this afternoon.” (Link is infowars.com’s and is left intact.)

Obama gives no-bid deal after campaigning he wouldn't



The link: http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2010/01/25/flashback_obama_promised_to_end_abuse_of_no-bid_contracts_on_campaign_trail.html (that’s the link for Mr Obama’s pledge.)

““I will finally end the abuse of no-bid contracts once and for all. The days of sweetheart deals for Halliburton and the like will be over when I’m in the White House.” – Senator Barack Obama 2-OCT-2008.

“ Those lobbyists in Washington have not funded my campaign. You have.” (Oh, really?)

Well, as it turns out, Mr Obama … lied. AGAIN.

The LA Times link: http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/la-na-smallpox-20111113,0,4293298.story


Reporting from Washington—
Over the last year, the Obama administration has aggressively pushed a $433-million plan to buy an experimental smallpox drug, despite uncertainty over whether it is needed or will work.Senior officials have taken unusual steps to secure the contract for New York-based Siga Technologies Inc., whose controlling shareholder is billionaire Ronald O. Perelman, one of the world's richest men and a longtime Democratic Party donor.” (Link is LA Times' and is left intact.)

All together now … BARACK LIED (again and again and again)?!?!? “Say it ain’t so, Joe!”

Can we trust anything Mr Obama says at this point?
