Michael Moore Calls For Police To Join Occupy Wall Street Protests Like Egyptian Army Did In Cairo
NewsBusters ^ | October 15, 2011 | Noel Sheppard

Posted on 10/15/2011 2:33:25 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Michael Moore on Friday called for police departments across the country to join the Occupy Wall Street protests "the same way the Egyptian army joined the people in Freedom Square there in Cairo."

"My appeal to the police is you are us and we are you," Moore said in a web only video published at MSNBC.com. "We’ll even let you beat on a bongo drum" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

MICHAEL MOORE: My last word here out in the hallway just outside of [Lawrence O’Donnell’s] studio is that the police need to join us. In the same way the Egyptian army joined the people in Freedom Square there in Cairo. This is my appeal to the New York Police Department, the police departments all over the country. You are working class people. You’re not paid enough. You have the most dangerous job in the country, and these rich bastards on Wall Street they have ruined your 401(k)s, your pension funds, your future, your children’s future. Money that should be going to having better law enforcement has gone to needless wars in other lands.

So, my appeal to the police is you are us and we are you, and join us. It’s fun. We’ll even let you beat on a bongo drum. That’s my last word. Thank you.

So a man whose estimated net worth is $50 million is not only inciting people all around the country to rise up against some of America's largest corporations, he is now calling on law enforcement officials to join them.

What could go wrong?

And by the way, this is NOT newsbusting.

This is getting all excited about something you read and posting it on the Internet. That was NOT the point of newsbusters.

The NYPD can’t wait to get in there to apply their wooden shampoos. Michael Moore is NOT a New Yorker despite his multi-millionaire pad - and does not understand the essentially conservative force that makes up our beloved police force. These men and women remember what happened on 9/11 and are sickened by the proximity of that sacred place to the out-of-towners fleabaggers of Zuccotti Park.

The Egyptian police never joined the revolution. To the last they were accused of detaining and torturing Mubarek opponents. Once again, a lefty is allowed to distort history.

He just wants all the doughnut shops to be unattended. Once that happens then he makes his move to consume all donuts.

These people are serious

They want an uprising to overthrow the government like in Egypt

Except they think Obama will be made emperor or something

The only thing is, the protester are to stupid to get that involved.

When it gets cold out, they are going back to their moms basement

Remember- when the hippies did this in thelate 60’s and early 70’s it helped usher in Reagan and the 80’s

"These are large, multinational corporations — Viacom, GE, Rupert Murdoch — that own these studios. Why do they need our money, from Michigan, from our taxpayers, when we're already broke here? I mean, they play one state against the other, and so they get all this free cash when they're making billions already in profits. What's the thinking behind that?"

Not gonna happen piggo commie. Just had an NYPD patient today in the office. We spent much time talking about what's going on down there.

I started off w/ a joke about “oh you must be having some fun down there”. He laughed and said he didn't work that area. Only once was he called in to work it, but has friends working it.

He said no one knows what they are protesting....and neither do they (the protesters). Apparently the NYPD does engage them in conversation, as to why they are there.

Basic answers....”the economy”. Basic question...”who'd you vote for”. Basic answer “Obama”. Basic question....”why aren't you in DC protesting?”

Basic answer....dumbfounded look w/ an incomprehensible answer.

I asked him why bloomturd backed down. He said it wasn't bloomturd, but the owner of the property. As far as they can figure, the owner is a supporter of it.

I told him we want to see those batons coming out w/ a few cracked skulls and why aren't they doing it. He said “they would sue us. They are constantly videoing us”. However, the NYPD, don't know if these leeches know, NYPD is videoing as well. I said if they attack you, as they have done, you have every right to defend yourself. I'm sure he was NOT going to let me in on ANY plan, nor would I expect him to.

I told him to spread the word to his “peeps” that we want to see some “cracking of the heads” going on. I was on FR at work, came across a thread that posted the violence they were encouraging......chopping off the heads of white people. It was a twitter thread, can't seem to find it. Should have bookmarked it but didn't.

I printed it out for him and said show this to your higher ups. This is what these people really want.

He didn't seem to think it would last must longer, in NYC any how. Off topic....that damn mosque has officially opened. Then we got started on 9/11. He was there. 1 woman police officer from his unit died. Her last words were "these building are going to come down". By the time they got there, they hit the wall of "black"....the first tower that came down.

Personally I think NY needs a big tea party event in the spring. Have thousands of people show up, shop in the local shops, listen to a few speakers, and quietly leave after a few hours.

It would be a real contrast for the people of NY to look at.
