Tea Party vs. Occupy Wall Street Flea Party: Duke It Out
Written by 

The media is in love with the “Occupy Wall Street” movement or as Ann Coulter famously called them, the “Flea Party.” This group is receiving plenty of media attention and like a virus is spreading to cities across America. Each protest site attracts left wing activists, homeless people and deviants in search of a cause.  It is truly a noxious combination; a crazy, smelly mix of kooks. 

 Instead of objectively reporting who is involved in the Flea Party or what they are really doing at these sites, the media is falling over itself advocating on behalf of the left wing protest movement. Most media reports ignore that some protesters are calling for an end to capitalism, while others have been shouting “F…the USA.”

A real look at these protesters reveals a motley collection of misfits and malcontents. While there are no doubt some educated professionals, patriotic veterans and other honest reform oriented protesters mixed in with the group, the overall image of the movement is rather disgusting.

In city after city, officials are concerned about sanitary problems and deteriorating health conditions at the protest encampments. When police try to remove protesters from public parks, they refuse to leave, so arrests have been escalating. Clearly, the protesters are provoking confrontation with authorities. The overall goal of the movement is not to work within our system of government to improve it but to crash the system and start anew.

In contrast, the Tea Party movement sponsored rallies to advocate reforms, but when their events were over, they went back to work. Tea Party supporters never tried to occupy parks or public facilities. Their activists are not criminals provoking confrontation with authorities.

Unlike the Flea Party, Tea Party activists paid fees to rent parks and did not try to permanently takeover areas that are meant for the enjoyment of all citizens. In Richmond, VA, Tea Party organizers are accusing Mayor Dwight Jones of applying a double standard of code enforcement. While the Richmond Tea Party had to follow strict guidelines and purchase liability insurance, the Flea Party has been allowed to spend three weeks in Kanawha Park, paying no fees and providing no insurance.

Not only have Flea Party protesters prevented taxpayers from having access to public parks and paid no fees for the privilege, they expect taxpayers to cover the costs for police protection, trash pick-up, healthcare services and food preparation for their movement. 

It is clear these protesters are both greedy and misguided. In San Diego, occupiers have refused to leave a public park until their ridiculous demands are met. The organizers want an end to “joblessness, poverty and political corruption.”

If they were truly interested in having these problems eradicated, the Flea Party would be focusing on the White House instead of Wall Street. President Obama has done more to wreck our economy than any other person in our country today. He has also been the recipient of more Wall Street money than any other politician in history.

Instead of criticizing Obama, the movement seems to be working with Obama to help his re-election effort. In addition, the “lame stream” media is pushing the protests to accomplish the same goal, Barack Obama’s re-election in November of 2012.

Another four years of Barack Obama is the goal that is uniting almost all of the groups backing this movement.  Along with the media supporters, ACORN, George Soros, and Hollywood idiots are also supporting the Flea Party.

It was no surprise to see rap performer Kanye West with his thousand dollar jeans and expensive jewelry strolling through an occupied encampment. On the other side of the ideological spectrum, the occupiers now have another ally, former KKK leader David Duke. The Flea Party has truly crossed the racial divide by bringing together black and white racists, mixed in with a heavy dose of anti-Semitism.

Of course, the horrific views of some Flea Party supporters are not reported by the media. Instead journalists are painting a positive picture of peaceful protesters and focusing on police brutality. In contrast, the law breaking and unsanitary conditions are not being adequately described and the reports of rape, open sexual behavior, and rampant drug use and being totally ignored.

The media loved to accuse Tea Party members of horrific acts, with no evidence to back up the claims. Today, the Tea Party movement continues to organize, but their activities are ignored by a media that is in full swoon over the Flea Party. The only real coverage the Tea Party receives now is when celebrities like Morgan Freeman or Sean Penn call the group a bunch of uneducated racists.
 

We should expect the Flea Party movement to continue to grow. As police and political leaders allow protesters to remain in public parks and sleep overnight, the Flea Party will expand to more cities. It does not matter to them that they do not own these parks and are being quite selfish taking over an area for their own left wing activities.

The real truth is that most of these folks have no jobs in this bad Obama economy and they have nothing better to do. Why should they look for work when they can camp out, accept handouts, receive benefits and send the bill to that ever shrinking group of suckers, the American taxpayers?

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
