The Real 99% of Americans Continue to Reject & Ignore the OWS Protest Movement and Their Reprehensible Conduct
Occupy Wall Street protest movement fails to gain any support from the real 99% of Americans. According to a recent USA Today poll, there was an increase from 20% to 31% in disapproval of the manner in which the OWS protesters have conducted themselves.
A new USA TODAY/Gallup Poll shows that the “Occupy” movement has failed to capture the attention of a majority of Americans, indicating either ambivalence toward it or lack of interest.
The poll finds that 56% of Americans surveyed are neither supporters nor opponents and 59% say they don’t know enough to have an opinion about the movement’s goals.
The survey, however, does show an increase from 20% to 31% in disapproval of the way the protests are being conducted.
Why are so many Americans neither supportive or non-supportive? Maybe because the MSM has supported these protesters and not negatively reported on the crimes, vandalism and hatred spewed from OWS like they would have done so if it were the Tea Party. Furthermore, the American Thinker might have stated it best, of course many Americans think there is a problem, “It’s just that they apparently don’t think a bunch of kooks, loons, communists, anarchists, and dirty necked galoots have the answers.”
The Astro-turf OWS Protest: Occupy Wall Street Protesters Stay at $700 a Night Hotel … OCCUPY LUXURY HOTELS
OCCUPY $700 A NIGHT LUXURY HOTELS …
#OWS … We don’t need no stinkin’ tents, especially when you can stay in a NYC $700 a night hotel room. Well what do you know, isn’t this what Nancy Pelosi would call “astro-turf”? I wonder how the 99% OWS protesters feel about the privileged 1% wannabe’s in their midst? Who would want to stay with the riff-raff and be among the unwashed, when they can use their privilege of the 1% and stay at the W Hotel Downtown. How absolutely typical is this of Libs? While the unwashed, brainwashed minions live in the filth, disease, urine and crime of the Occupy camps, the organizers are living la vita loca in luxury and life styles of the “Rich and Famous”.
Hell no, we won’t go — unless we get goose down pillows.
A key Occupy Wall Street leader and another protester who leads a double life as a businessman ditched fetid tents and church basements for rooms at a luxurious hotel that promises guests can “unleash [their] inner Gordon Gekko,” The Post has learned.
The $700-per-night W Hotel Downtown last week hosted both Peter Dutro, one of a select few OWS members on the powerful finance committee, and Brad Spitzer, a California-based analyst who not only secretly took part in protests during a week-long business trip but offered shelter to protesters in his swanky platinum-card room.
Shocker, the OWS protesters are hypocrites. Does it really get any more pathetically hypocritical than this? Seriously. You claim to be a part of a movement where you say you represent the 99%, yet you stay in the very entity that you say you are against. As states at Michelle Malkin.com, the W chain is owned by Starwood Hotels, which closed on Wall Street at 49.08 on Friday.
I am guess that these guys will not be showing up for their free Turkey Day vittels and fixings.
Occupy Wall Street Protester Arrested with Handgun & Ammo at Zuccotti Park … How Long Before this Goes Beyond the Point of No Return?
AND YET ANOTHER ARREST … Okay, the OWS protests is about to cross the line from a so-called protest movement to the point of no return, if they have not already done so.
An Ohio man affiliated with the OWS protesters was arrested at Zuccotti Park in possession of a .45-calibre handgun and 32 rounds of ammunition. 32 year old Joshua Fellows was charged with criminal possession of a weapon and released. This protest movement is a powder keg about to explode as they have been allowed to cross far too many lines. Hey Barack, do you endorse this as well? If not, you might want to actually speak out against the criminal element and violence caused from the protest movement that you have endorsed.
The Occupy Wall Street protest could have been one bad temper away from turning lethal.
Cops busted a man from Youngstown, Ohio this weekend for driving around the OWS protest and Lower Manhattan with an unregistered gun.
Law enforcement said Joshua Fellows, 32, had a .45-calibre handgun and 32 rounds of ammunition in a truck he’d rented in North Carolina.
Fellows was originally busted on Thursday at 12:40 p.m. at Broadway and Exchange Place on a reckless driving charge after cops saw up to 40 people jumping in and out of the Budget rental truck.
This is not a protest movement, it is a crime spree. The Gateway Pundit points out that Joshua Fellows was recently arrested in Asheville, North Carolina last week at an Occupy protest. How many times must these freaks be arrested before authorities will take it serious that they are a clear and present danger to the public? Must someone be killed?
CLASSLESS … THE OCCUPY PROTESTERS HAVE RESPECT FOR NEITHER HUMAN NOR ANIMAL.
The Portland Police Department have released a video of the incident where an Occupy Portland protester punched a horse in the face. The police are asking the public for help in identifying this dirt bag who thinks its perfectly ok to punch a horse in the face. How disrespectful could these people possibly be? So does Barack Obama also endorse cruelty to animals?
Hat Tip: The Gateway Pundit
This information is in regard to a specific confrontation that occurred during the 12-hour N17 protest that occurred on Thursday, November 17, 2011. Around 4:30 p.m., Portland Police Officers were attempting to remove people from Southwest Yamhill Street so that vehicular traffic and light-rail traffic could resume. Many people were in the street in what was a very dangerous situation.
At the same time, officers were also preventing any additional people from entering the Chase Bank, located on the corner of 6th and Yamhill. Police were inside the bank arresting individuals who had entered the bank to protest.
Police made repeated loud-hail commands and officers on the ground reiterated those commands for people to clear the street and leave the area. A confrontation occurred between a group of protestors who would not disperse. Projectiles were thrown at police and an unidentified man struck a police horse.
Where is the outrage from PETA?
The below VIDEO shows more of the Occupy Portland protests and their disobeying of the police. Yup, just like the Tea Parties. NOT!
Take a good look at what Obama, Pelosi, Reid and the Democrat party is endorsing.
More from the Barack Obama endorsed “join us or else” Occupy protests. I thought we were told that the OWS protests were one of peace? We can certainly see that they are not for freedom of choice.
As reported at the Daily Californian, a UC Berkeley female student was assaulted at when she stated that she was not going to be protesting on Sproul Plaza. The male suspect threw an aluminum water bottle at the female who did not agree or was not protesting. Oh the reasonable OWS folks. They not attack individuals who do not agree with them. Really?
A man threw an aluminum water bottle at a UC Berkeley student Thursday evening on campus, causing minor injuries to the victim’s face.
At about 5:09 p.m., the female student was approached by a man at “the northeast exterior of the Haas Pavilion,” according to a UCPD crime alert. The man asked the suspect if she was going to the protest on Sproul Plaza, and when the victim answered “no,” the suspect yelled at her.
“People like you are the reason that California is in debt,” he said, according to the crime alert.
More info from the PJ Tattler not included in the article:
• Thursday at 5pm was the moment at which the Occupy Cal rally was happening in Sproul Plaza, so the “protest” mentioned in the article was the Occupy protest.
• The incident happened just 200 yards from the site of the protest, within earshot.
• The suspect description matched the appearance of the typical OWS protester.
Simply amazing that the Occupy protesters cannot accept others free speech or right not to protest, yet they want their rights. However, add another incident to the long criminal rap sheet of the OWS folks and their so-called protest movement.
Despicable … OWS Protesters Target School Kids in Their Day of Outrage … OWS Protesters Chant “Follow Those Kids!”
Despicable … OWS Protesters Target School Kids in Their Day of Outrage … OWS Protesters Chant “Follow Those Kids!” So this is what Obama, Pelosi and Reid endorse, eh. The OWS protesters have so crossed the line on acceptable behavior. This is not freedom of speech.
The Occupy Wall Street movement is officially over … you claimed to be protesting banks and economic inequality, code for redistribution of wealth. Yesterday OWS targeted and harassed school children. Stick a fork in OWS, they are done. What little support that remained for the OWS protesters just went out the window. On Thursday in NYC, OWS protesters harasses children and working folks alike as they caused chaos th the city. One question, what are you trying to accomplish, how hated a movement can become?
They were caught in the middle of madness.
Some grade school students were forced to walk a gauntlet of screaming “Occupy Wall Street” protesters just to get to school on Thursday.
It was a wild day in lower Manhattan for most everyone involved, including elementary school children who had to brave the mayhem just to get to class on the other side of Wall Street.
In the middle of thousands of protestors yelling and chanting — some kicking and screaming – CBS 2’s Emily Smith found little school kids trying to get to class. Nervous parents led them through the barriers on Wall Street. The NYPD helped funnel the children, anything to ease their fears while some protestors chanted “follow those kids!”
“These guys are terrorists, yelling at little kids,” one father said.
Follow those kids? Seriously? Weasel Zippers reminds us that the number of school kids stalked and terrorized by Tea Party member is ZERO! These protesters do not represent the 99%, they represent the worst of what American can be and mob rule. Who in their right mind would target children? President Obama, Pelosi and Reid … Where is your outrage or is this what the Democrat party in 2011 now stands behind? This endorsement from Democrats will come back to haunt them in the 2012 elections.
More pics and VIDEO at the Gateway Pundit.
The mood of most Americans is becoming the attitude shared by that of Rep. Michael G. Grimm (R,C-NY) regarding the Occupy Wall Street mob … “it’s time for the OWS protesters to pack up their tents, buy a bar of soap, and head home.”
“These people have overstayed their welcome and it’s time they get the heck out of New York City. Between the filth, the smell, the incessant noise, and threat to public safety, they have done nothing but cause a nuisance to the people who work and live in Lower Manhattan. They’ve cost the city and surrounding businesses millions of dollars, and it’s time these people find a more productive use of their time. New Yorkers have had ENOUGH!
Occupy Wall Street Protester Nkrumah Tinsley Arrested for Threatening to Torch New York City … “We’re going to burn New York City to the f#@king ground”
America, take a real good look at what makes up OWS … What are theses Occupy Wall Street – Zuccotti Park crazies actually protesting … burning down NYC and Macy’s, REALLY?
Welcome to the President Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid backed Occupy Wall Street protests. Sorry, you backed it, you own it. Nkrumah Tinsley, an Occupy Wall Street protester via Zuccotti Park was arrested for threatening to burn New York City to the ground “… In a few days, you’re going to see what a Molotov cocktail can do to Macy’s.”
Warning: Adult language
A protester was arrested in Zuccotti Park Wednesday after he threatened to fire bomb the city — and his rant went viral on YouTube, police said.
Nkrumah Tinsley, 29, was busted after cops saw a video of him claiming he would torch the city during Thursday’s mass protest posted online, police said.
“On the 17th (of Nov.), we’re going to burn New York City to the f—ing ground,” an angry Tinsley told a crowd of demonstrators in the video posted on Tuesday.
“In a few days, you’re going to see what a Molotov cocktail can do to Macy’s.”
UNBELIEVABLE… image what the outrage would be if such threats of violence came from the Tea Party? The OWS crowd promises protest, demonstrations and chaos on Thursday. This might be the final undoing of this movement. More and more people have turned away from the OWS protesters as they have seen the actions of the mob. This is no longer a movement with any purpose, if it ever had one, it is just one of disruption, violence an vandalism in an attempt to harm capitalism. These folks do not represent the 99%, they represent the radical, out of control fringe. Note to Obama Reid and Pelosi … these people are the extreme!
As we are reminded by the PJ Tatler … God bless them, right Nancy?
What an Obamanation really looks like …
What are these people protesting again? Weren’t they supposed to be against banks? Occupy Wall Street has now cost NYC local businesses $479,400! The very places that they are occupying, they are ruining. This is hardly the actions of the real 99%. How much longer is Mayor Bloomberg going to allow this to go on where businesses are suffering at the hands of these vagrants? Does any one not think that the business owners that are losing money are nor a part of the 99%? The Occupy Wall Street protesters have no issue with occupying a local business and spending no money in the establishment. At some point maybe Obama would like to call these people for what they really are … LAZY! Oh, that’s right, he only refers to CEO’s as lazy.
It makes no cents.
The Occupy Wall Street movement has cost surrounding businesses $479,400 so far, store owners said.
A Post survey of a dozen restaurants, jewelry shops, beauty salons, a chain store and mom-and-pop establishments tallied almost a half-million dollars lost in the 53 days since the Zuccotti Park siege began on Sept. 17.
“We’re done with them!” barked one Broadway business owner. The restaurateur — who requested anonymity for fear of reprisals — said his profits drained as soon as campers moved in.
“My customers used to take food to eat in the park, but now they can’t,” he lamented.
Yet another death added to the Occupy movement tally.
The death toll is now at 5 tent protesters and 7 overall, as another Occupy protester was found dear in a tent today. The death occurred at the Occupy Salt Lake City camp in Pioneer Park.The protesters have been ordered to leave the parks and camping over night has been banned. They will be allowed to protest during the day, but must leave at night. This is the same thing that should be done across the United States. The Occupy protesters should be allowed their freedom of speech to what ever their message is; however, they must go home like ever other group would be made to. Squatting in a park for an undermined amount of time is a health and safety risk, let alone a breeding ground for illegal criminal activity.
Hours after a man was found dead inside a tent at Pioneer Park, Salt Lake Police Chief Chris Burbank announced Friday he could no longer allow camping in the park or anywhere in the city.
“We can no longer have individuals camping on our streets,” Burbank said. “We as a city just cannot tolerate this going on.”
Burbank made the announcement Friday at Pioneer Park at the Occupy Salt Lake base camp. He said the group was welcome to continue protesting during the day, but they will no longer be allowed there at night.
It’s about time.
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.
