Unpopular Occupy Wall Street Protests Will Bite Obama, Politically
Written by 
Obama-occupyThe “Occupy Wall Street” protesters are getting more disgusting each day. After several weeks, protesters are still camping out in public parks all across the country.

These “Occupiers” obviously have nowhere else to go, such as a job, family or school, so they remain in their tents and sleeping bags. In New Orleans, a fight broke out at Duncan Plaza between a machete wielding homeless man and an “Occupy” protester. According to police, they were fighting over turf, such as a park bench. In effect, the “occupiers” are displacing the homeless in cities across the country.


Their aims are unfocused and their grievances are lengthy, but most of their wrath seems to be centered on corporate America. Their unofficial leader, filmmaker Michael Moore, is calling for an end to capitalism in our country. He does not offer an alternative, just the downfall of the current system. His remarks represent the ultimate in hypocrisy, since he pocketed millions from the supposedly corrupt capitalist system.

Most of Moore’s clueless followers are upset at Wall Street, but support President Obama, obviously unaware that the President has received more Wall Street money than any other candidate in history.

What is infuriating is that mayors across the country are allowing these protesters to occupy public parks and infringe on the rights of other citizens to enjoy these areas. The parks are becoming a health hazard as the protesters continue to act like uncivilized savages.

In San Diego, vendors who sold food near the “Occupy” site were splattered with blood and urine when they stopped giving the protesters free coffee and hot dogs. The protesters also marked the food carts with disgusting graffiti and stole a variety of items. So, when the protesters were made to pay for items like everyone else, they went into a rage.

In New York, when police tangled with protesters, one crazed “Occupier” defecated on a squad car. In Portland, Oregon, there has been a head and body lice outbreak as protesters refuse to leave a public park.

In many of these protest camps, illegal drug use has been reported. In Boston, three “Occupiers” were arrested for selling crack cocaine In Dallas, TX, a 14 year old was raped by a deranged protester.

The list of offenses continues to grow and the American people are beginning to have a very negative view of these protests. According to the latest Rasmussen poll, 33 percent of Americans view the protesters favorably, while 43 percent hold an unfavorable view.

The group is supposedly non-partisan, but their funding is coming from liberal donors and their focus is decidedly left wing. Eventually, this movement will hurt President Obama. Initially, when this movement was seen as a popular uprising, Obama praised the group and embraced their goals. Later, he tried to distance himself from their illegal activity. This will be a hard balancing act to continue and the American people will soon associate Obama with this radical leftist movement.

As Americans understand the true picture of just how fanatical these protesters are, President Obama will be hurt politically. Ironically, the very person the protesters are trying to support will suffer the most.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
