TEAR DOWN THAT COMMIE STATUE …
Hundreds of thousands of protesters in Ukraine took to the streets in another mass demonstration of anger against President Viktor F. Yanukovich’s decision to break off negotiations with the European Union. They toppled the statue of Communist leader Lenin in a symbolic demonstration and then took a sledgehammer to it.
Public protests thundered into a full-throttle civil uprising in Ukraine on Sunday, as hundreds of thousands of protesters answered President Viktor F. Yanukovich’s dismissiveness with their biggest rally so far, demanding that he and his government resign.
At the height of the unrest on Sunday night, a seething crowd toppled and smashed a statue of Lenin, the most prominent monument to the Communist leader in Kiev. The act was heavy with symbolism, underscoring the protesters’ rage at Russia over its role in the events that first prompted the protests: Mr. Yanukovich’s abrupt refusal to sign sweeping political and free-trade agreements with the European Union.
After an electrifying assembly in Independence Square in the center of Kiev, the main focus of the protests, the huge crowd surged across the capital, erecting barriers to block the streets around the presidential headquarters and pitching huge tents in strategic intersections. They were not challenged by the police, who have largely disengaged since their bloody crackdown on a group of protesters on Nov. 30 sharply increased outrage at the government.
Radio Free Europe was Live blogging the event.
Interestingly enough, as those in the Ukraine tear down the statue of Lenin, many think that US President Barack Obama is looking to erect it.
Have they no shame …
From the PJ Tatler comes the below exclusive video and the story that protesters at the WWII Memorial were paid to do so and one was not even a government employee as they claimed, but worked at McDonald’s instead.
After about an hour, about 20 protesters arrived on the scene chanting “Boehner, get us back to work” and claiming they were federal employees furloughed because of the shutdown.
In the video below these protesters were marching towards the press gaggle and I was asking them to show their federal IDs to prove they were in fact federal workers. No one wore their federal ID and none would provide it to prove their claim.
Then, remarkably, a guy carrying a sign passed by wearing a McDonald’s employee shirt, which I noted. I then began asking them how much they had been paid to protest, at which point the guy wearing the McDonald’s shirt came back and admitted he had been paid $15.
Democrats Pay Union Members to Protest World War II Vets. Just pathetic.
Here is the video. As you watch it, try to imagine what public relations genius in the Obama administration thought that this would play well for the president and Harry Reid:
You can’t make this stuff up: World War II veterans come to Washington to see their monument, and the Obama administration tries to block them by putting up barricades. When that blunder starts getting media attention, the administration doubles down by paying union members $15 to march around, waving signs and protesting–as though that were a sure-fire way to generate sympathy for the nonessential federal employees who are getting the day off. Is it possible that the Democrats could be snatching defeat from the jaws of victory?

Madness … So if you don’t agree with the mob and agree with the rule of law, they want to boycott you and ruin your career.
A speaker at the Travon Martin rally in Seattle, WA called out Charles Barkley and called for the boycott of Barkley. The speaker called for NBA player to not speak to Charles Barkley and thus he would lose his job. Are these people insane? These individuals would actually try and destroy another because they dare go against the mob and stated that the jury got it right in the George Zimmerman murder trial? Charles Barkley actually put forth a very concise and well reasoned analysis of his opinion and for that he has now been branded not black enough. This is the insanity of those who claim to be for justice and civil rights. They would take away others rights so they can get their way. UNREAL. So much for that freedom of speech thing.
VIDEO Hat Tip: Laughing at Liberals
HYPOCRIT MOMENT OF THE WEEK …
Jane Fonda continues to be one of the most loathed/hated/despised individuals of all times. “Hanoi” Jane Fonda tells US military veterans boycotting her movie, ‘The Butler’ to “GET A LIFE”. Larry Reyes, a Navy veteran and founder of the “Boycott Hanoi Jane Playing Nancy Reagan” Facebook has criticized the casting of Hanoi Jane Fonda as Nance Reagan. Gee, ya think? If there was anything ever that might be more boycottable that this American traitor be cast as the beloved former first lady Nancy Reagan, I am not sure what it is? Because nothing says Nancy Reagan as does Hanoi Jane.
When Jane Fonda was cast as former First Lady Nancy Reagan in Lee Daniels’ forthcoming film “The Butler,” some Reagan fans were not pleased. Now, with the biographical due to hit theaters in October, a movement to boycott the movie is gaining some momentum.
Larry Reyes, a Navy veteran and founder of the “Boycott Hanoi Jane Playing Nancy Reagan” Facebook page has been particularly vocal about the casting decision, given Fonda’s past frolicking with the enemy during the Vietnam War.
I made a commitment early on not to support her projects,” Reyes told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column. “Then when I heard she was going to play such a well-liked and highly respected president’s wife, it got to me. They (the filmmakers) knew by picking Jane for the part they were going to stir up some stuff. I’m not a conservative or a liberal, I’m an American. And that was a slap in the face.”
This week, Fonda had a simple message for Reyes and the page’s fans … “Get a life.”
So the uber-LEFTY Jane Fonda thinks that it is perfectly A-O-K for her to protest and boycott the Vietnam War, but it’s not ok to boycott her movie? Seems like typical liberal hypocrisy. One might want to tell Jane Fonda to “GET A LIFE”!
With All the Talk About Strikes & Boycotts Against Walmart … Time Lapse Video Shows Record Black Friday Sales at Walmart
WALMART IS NO TWINKIE …
Strikes and boycotts against Walmart in an effort to harm them economically. In the end they were a union epic fail. Who are you going to believe, the Left or your lying eyes? Check out the time lapse video below recording the record sales on Black Friday at Walmart. The Grinches on the LEFT tried to make it a miserable experience for shoppers, but they failed in a big way. If anything, their protests may have served to boost sales ala Chick-fil-a. As reported at Breitbart.com, Walmart reported record sales.
Despite union efforts to target retailers like Walmart, businesses are reporting record Black Friday traffic – the biggest sign yet that the unions are out of touch with the American people. Starting at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving, Walmart put its products on Black Friday sale, sparking a run to the stores and earning the stores record sales
Scott Van Duzer Faces Boycott after “Bear Hug” of Obama … Whines There is No Middle Line …Shut Up and Make Pizza
SHUT UP A MAKE PIZZA …
Scott Van Duzer, the owner of Big Apple Pizza & Pasta Restaurant in Fort Pierce, FL and the man pictured the other day giving Barack Obama a bear hug is now complaining that he might be boycotted. Duzer, an Obama supporter stated that“People are saying a lot of bad things and boycotting my restaurant. There’s no middle line anymore, and that’s exactly what’s wrong with our country right now.” Hmm, who knew that giving the President of the United States was acting in the middle of the road? When one owns a business that wants to market to all folks, well then one best be careful what one says or does. Actions have consequences.
Mr. Duzer, people have a right to boycott you. That is their freedom of speech. Just like you had a right to bear hug the president and make any comments in support of Obama. As much as any normal and literate business owner would know could have ramifications. So basically, Deal with it. Hey Scott Van Duzer, can you say Chick-fil-a? At least you do not have elected officials telling you that you do not have a right to open a business in their cities because of your political or personal opinions.
“People are saying a lot of bad things and boycotting my restaurant,” Scott Van Duzer, 46, told POLITICO. “There’s no middle line anymore, and that’s exactly what’s wrong with our country right now.”
The owner of Big Apple Pizza & Pasta Restaurant in Fort Pierce, Fla., said that both Democrats and Republicans are welcome in his store. But he also said he thinks Mitt Romney’s running mate Rep. Paul Ryan — whose sculpted abs are thanks to intense P90X training sessions — would lose to the president in a workout battle.
“I think Obama could take him,” Van Duzer said, laughing. “Obama looked pretty fast and pretty quick on his feet.”
What a joke the yahoos are at YAHOO. Because I am most certain that all of you whining about how Van Duzer was being treated felt the same way about Dan Cathy and the Chick-fil-a controversy where not only did the LEFT want to boycott them but also politicians in Chicago and Boston tried to prevent them from opening franchises.
Another user, this one checking in from Brooklyn, N.Y., 1,165 miles away, chirped: “Really, conservatards? You try to trash a man’s business because he likes a different political candidate than you? What scum you all are. Go crawl back in your holes. SCOTT VAN DUZER IS MY HERO!”
Of the 229 comments listed on the page (30 of them “filtered,” one removed for violating terms of service), only two were published pre-bear hug, the most recent coming in 2010.
In the end, stick to making pizza if you do not want controversy. However, if you wish to branch out and seek the fame and glory from Barack Obama, then you best be ready for the backlash.
Occupy protesters plan on hurting the 99% by their actions …
According to Reuters, Occupy thugs plan on shutting down West Coast ports Monday in an attempt to cripple a key supply chain of American commerce. So this is what Obama is endorsing from the Occupy protesters? In a time where the US economy is struggling, Occupy idiots plan on trying to harm the economy.
Anti-Wall Street protesters, hoping to briefly cripple a key supply chain of American commerce and re-energize their movement, plan to attempt to block major West Coast ports on Monday.
By marching on U.S. ports from California to Alaska, organizers look to call attention to economic inequalities in the country and a financial system they complain is unfairly tilted toward the wealthy.
The planned action comes after the Occupy movement that began in New York in September has seen its tent camps in most big West Coast cities dismantled in police raids, leaving the movement looking for new avenues to voice its discontent.
The Gateway Pundit is reporting that it was Barack Obama’s former “Green” czar who called for the closing of the western US ports. Of course it was, water seeks its own level. America, this is what Obama is at heart, a community agitator.
So who do these misguided Occupy fools think they are harming by their thug stunts? As stated by the Lonely Conservative, “to the one percent this will be a petty annoyance. To the people whose livelihoods depend on their paychecks, this will mean a day of lost wages right before Christmas.” I wonder whether these Occupy insanoids give any of this a second thought? Then again, one would actually have to have the ability to think.
However, one would think that many individuals would be upset by the closing of the ports. Unions might have an issue with such a disruption. There comes a point when all will turn against the Occupy movement as it represents socialism and a threat to democracy. It is becoming more and more obvious that the actions of the Occupy protesters are harming the 99%, not the supposed 1%.
But unlike last time, when the area’s major unions gave tacit or outright approval, many of them see Monday’s action as disruptive and unnecessary.
And some occupation activists are labeling it as too confrontational, with the protest’s potential for violence detracting from Occupy’s stated intention of narrowing the chasm between rich and poor.
“Support is one thing,” Robert McEllrath, president of the International Longshoreman and Warehouse Union, wrote to his members last week. “Outside groups attempting to co-opt our struggle in order to advance a broader agenda is quite another and one that is destructive to our democratic process.”
EXIT QUESTION: How is it that Barack Obama does not condemn the Occupy protesters who are destructive to our democratic process?
The Occupy Wall Street protesters lose again. OWS called for boycotts and Americans responded with Buycotts.
Much to the OWS dismay, Black Friday sales increased by a record 6.6%. As the OWS protesters tried to prevent Americans from going to businesses like WalMart and Best Buy, Americans provided their own “Freedom of Speech” and spoke with their wallets.
Despite 9% unemployment, more Americans below the poverty level, record number on food stamps, 17% believing the country is headed in the right direction and only 8% rating the US economy as good or excellent, 152 million people came together to spend $11.4 billion on Black Friday. Granted, this is only one day … but it is better than the alternative.
Black Friday sales increased 6.6 percent to the largest amount ever as U.S. consumers shrugged off 9 percent unemployment and went shopping.
Consumers spent $11.4 billion, ShopperTrak said in a statement yesterday. Foot traffic rose 5.1 percent on Black Friday, according to the Chicago-based research firm.
As many as 152 million people were expected to shop at stores and websites on Black Friday, up 10 percent from last year, the National Retail Federation said. The Washington-based NRF is scheduled to release Thanksgiving weekend sales today.
Sadly, many individuals who went out on Black Friday and purchased items acted in less than an appropriate manner, it is not any less inappropriate or classless than the OWS protesters who failed to convince anyone to boycott Walmart or the other big boys on the block.
President Obama must be caught in the middle and not know what to say? Does he praise the economic spending or say nothing because his endorsed OWS protest movement failed in their efforts?
OCCUPY WALL STREET PROTESTERS, NAZI’S AND COMMUNISTS … OH MY!!! OBAMA AND THE DEMOCRATS HAVE STEPPED IN IT THIS TIME …
Not only does President Barack Obama and Democrats support the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ protest movement, it appears that they have two move organizations that have come on board. The American Nazi party throws its support behind the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ folks. To second the Gate Way Pundit, Wow, just Wow! I will also add in a YIKES!
Check this out from Weasel Zippers as we will not be linking to the actual source for obvious reasons.
The “Occupy Wall Street” Movement — WhiteHonor
The foremost authority on National Socialism in America has this to say about “Occupy” [ANP leader Rocky Suhayda — ed.] :
What is really MISSING — is the “MOVEMENT” from these popular protests — its time to pull WN heads out of their collective ass’s, and JOIN IN the attack on Judeo-Capitalism. What do you suggest? That WN Working Class White people DEFEND the Judeo-Capitalists? IF the “movement” wasn’t so PATHETIC it would be OUT THERE — LEADING these protests! The fact that its these “lefties” as you call them, who are picking up the ball and running with it — only shows how much more in tune THEY are with the fed up masses of White Workers, than the fossilized, reactionary “right-wing”. WHO holds the WEALTH and POWER in this country — the JUDEO-CAPITALISTS. WHO is therefore the #1 ENEMY who makes all this filth happen — the JUDEO-CAPITALISTS. WHO therefore do WN need to FIGHT? My heart is right there with these people, perhaps someday the “movement” will SHOW the same COURAGE and DEDICATION that these people OUT THERE FIGHTING are SHOWING!
Sincerely, ROCKY SUHAYDA Hail Victory! 88!
But wait, its not only the Nazi’s that support the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ movement, its the Communists as well.
Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Democrats have supported the Occupy Wall Street crowd, really? They support hate and Anti-semitism? Seriously? Wasn’t it Nancy Pelosi that said the Tea Party carried swastikas (VIDEO)? Where is Pelosi now, hell the Occupy Wall Street protesters have the backing of the American Nazi party … um, those folks actually do carry swastikas.
This is what Obama, Pelosi and Democrats are supporting? I do not want to hear that it is just one or two people that are expressing these views, the Occupy crowd has the backing of entire hate organizations. The Tea Party was branded racists because of one fictitious individual who supposedly spit on Pelosi et all, even though it was never proved. How can any one not say that the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ protesters are not racist? For a party that is so supposedly against racism, how do Democrats support a movement that is backed by the American Nazi party?
Remember this diddy from Nancy Pelosi … when she called Town Hall Tea party folks ‘AstroTurf” and said that they were carrying swastika and other symbols. What do you say now Nancy regarding the “Occupy Wall Street” protesters?
Actions Have Consequences … QVC Cancels Hanoi Jane Fonda’s Appearance Over Protests to Her Vietnam War Opposition
Jane Fonda … Cry Me a River.
It’s about time that Hanoi Jane understands that there are consequences to one’s actions.This delusional lib actually thinks that she can be allowed to use her First Amendment rights of freedom of speech to write a book; however, others are not allowed their freedom of speech to protest and denounce the same said book. Jane Fonda actually is whining (link is to Fonda’s liberal blog) over people protesting her book and her shilling it on QVC? Seriously? This from the woman, better known as Hanoi Jane, who sided with the enemy during the Vietnam War. How ironic that the leftist, pinko is now trying to make $’s using the capitalist system of QVC to sell books. Imagine taking pics with the very people who were shooting down American service men in Vietnam and some who this clown thinks she has never done anything against her country.
In 1972 “Hanoi” Jane Fonda applauded an NVA anti-aircraft gun crew during her trip to North Vietnam.
I was to have been on QVC today to introduce my book, “Prime Time,” about aging and the life cycle. The network said they got a lot of calls yesterday criticizing me for my opposition to the Vietnam War and threatening to boycott the show if I was allowed to appear. I am, to say the least, deeply disappointed that QVC caved to this kind of insane pressure by some well funded and organized political extremist groups.
Bottom line, this has gone on far too long, this spreading of lies about me! None of it is true. NONE OF IT! I love my country. I have never done anything to hurt my country or the men and women who have fought and continue to fight for us.
Really Jane? Because the picture above of you with the enemy didn’t hurt the United States or the soldiers fighting for this country or those being held in POW camps. You just go on believing that lie. As stated at Jammie Wearing Fool, all one has to do is a simple Google search to find Fonda’s long record of treason.
Let us not forget Dana Pretzer’s SM’s commentary on Jane Fonda from 2007
KUDOS to QVC for actually listening to the people who use their services and who are protesting this traitor.
UPDATE I: Imagine if the outrage still exists against Hanoi Jane after all these years, what is the protest and boycotts going to be like against anyone, business or media outlet that pays Casey Anthony for making blood money off of Caylee Anthony?
