"Occupy DC" attack Americans for Prosperity members at Summit in Washington DC
The Examiner ^ | November 7, 2011 | Christopher Collins

Tea Party advocates and members of Americans for Prosperity were attacked at the AFP’s annual “Defending the American Dream Summit in Washington DC by members of the Occupy movement, and several were injured. Some of those injured were elderly as the Occupy DC protesters blocked members from leaving the building.

In one instance, the protestors shove a 70-year old Americans for Prosperity Foundation member down some concrete stairs.

The protesters also formed roadblocks and surrounded the convention center and refused to allow any vehicle that appeared to be a luxury car along with children, and their parents, were caught in the violent protest. In one of several cases, protestors while throwing vulgar language and attempted to block vehicles from leaving, were hit and then claimed it wasn’t their fault as you can see in this video.

Virginia Galloway, Paulding County resident and Americans for Prosperity of Georgia Director stated, “They were blocking the Convention Center door with a small child in a stroller. They were cussing policemen, at several members at the convention, and assaulted one of our members in her wheelchair and shoved one elderly member down the stairs!”(continued)

Is this supposed to be in English?

Yes, that's about the worst sentence I've ever read in a newspaper. And it's copied word for word from the Examiner. It's absolutely horrible grammar.

Remember, America is great because America is good. Turn the other cheek fits as well.

It's tough for me as a former Marine as well, but to respond in the way that obama and his backing wants gives him the executive privilege and reason to bring the top down on us all. He is trying to use the power of his office to "save" us when SHTF.

Don't let SHTF or we are done....America is great because America is good...rinse, repeat, rinse!!!

Here’s how I see it. The organization behind OWS has spread out across the country, and in some cases over the great pond. I believe their goal is to create the appearance of a majority to persuade the World to succumb to their will. In the vast majority of the locations according to most of what I read small groups of people under the guise of OWS whatever are creating scenes for the purpose of getting noticed by the media for their outrageousness. They are making it seem this is a much bigger movement than it really is.

I don’t believe we can find any major movement involved here, but more of an attempt to make it seem that it is.

To put it bluntly I think we are being BS’d.
