More insanity from the Occupy protesters …
I thought the Occupy crowd was protesting banks? Looks like they are now just trying to cause trouble and preventing others from having freedom of speech. The Occupy Denver protest went to the BlogCon 2011 conservative conference to occupy it. For their efforts, one Occupy Denver protester was arrested.
One thing is for certain, if the fool Occupy crowd try anything at a blog conference, you can be assured that there will be fair coverage and much, much video of the event. More VIDEO at Weasel Zippers. As the Lonely Conservative writes, so much for that surprise attack on the bloggers by the Occupiers. Hey LC, no one ever called these people brilliant. I guess they do not understand the concept that bloggers use Twitter.
The clash erupted before I had a chance to get too close to the Occupiers themselves. They were briefly in sight, but got swallowed up by the BlogCon attendees. Frankly, the BlogCon response overwhelmed whatever the protesters tried to say — with chants of “Mike check!” and “We paid for your student loans!”, among others, the Occupiers got roundly shouted down. At one point, the entire BlogCon contingent in the lobby started chanting, “We want the dog!”, a reference to the elected leader of Occupy Denver — a pooch named Shelby.
Gotta love the fact that when the Occupy unwashed were escorted from the premises, the BlogCon 2011 member sang, Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye.
UPDATE I: Check out this bias liberal reporting from New9 Denver …Um, the mere presence of the conservative bloggers incited the chants? Are you frigging serious? This is what passes as the media today.
According to reports, a group of conservative bloggers are at the hotel, which may have incited the chanting.
