Occupy Wall Street protesters throw condoms, drown out speakers at Rhode Island pro-life rally

PROVIDENCE, RI, January 30, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – Demonstrators from the Occupy Wall Street movement threw condoms on Catholic schoolgirls, refused to allow a Catholic priest to give a closing prayer, and shouted down a pro-life speaker at a Rhode Island right to life rally on Thursday, according to its organizer. The event marked the third time protesters associated with the movement have disrupted a pro-life meeting in a week.

About two-dozen members of Occupy Providence hiked from Burnside Park to the 39th Annual Pro-Life State House Rally organized by the Rhode Island State Right to Life Committee on Thursday.

The pro-life organization’s executive director, Barth E. Bracy, told LifeSiteNews.com that, near the end of the rally, the Occupiers “strategically fanned out with military precision.”

That’s when they “started showering condoms down on some of the girls from a Catholic high school.”

They gathered around speakers at the podium, shouting them down or otherwise jostling them and members of the audience.

Bracy, who finished only a quarter of his keynote address before being drowned out by chants and catcalls, said the Occupiers – who carried a large sign reading “Occupy Providence” and wore distinguishing arm bands – physically bumped several people. “They’re touching you. They’re swarming you,” he said.

The Providence chapter openly planned its actions on its Facebook page, Bracy said.

Bracy said he was disappointed when he tried to ask a man from the national Occupy Wall Street movement, who identified himself as “Dallas,” what opposing the right to life had to do with economics. http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/why-does-occupy-wall-st.-support-big-abortion “You can’t have a reasoned conversation with these people,” he said, “They simply try to taunt you. They’re smug, snarky, arrogant. You won’t get a straight answer.”

Dallas told Bracy he was on a 13-city national tour to teach Saul Alinsky tactics to local organizers.

“Their actions have made it loud and clear, whatever else they are, they are pro-abortion – and they are willing to attack the pro-life movement,” Bracy told LifeSiteNews.

Members of the Occupy movement, which putatively focuses on economic and financial issues, have begun aggressively demonstrating against those who advocate for the rights of the unborn.

Approximately 15 protesters from Occupy D.C. disrupted the March for Life Youth Rally in the nation’s capital last Saturday evening.

Last Monday, they disrupted a prayer service for the unborn in front of the Supreme Court.

“What they did yesterday was clearly the most outrageous and egregious thing they’ve done so far,” Bracy said on Friday. “I don’t know if this is a sign of what’s to come from them, but I think it’s important Catholics and pro-lifers know who these people are.”

However, such outrageous and offensive tactics may prove counterproductive for the pro-abortion movement. “They couldn’t have done us a bigger favor,” Bracy said. “We’re more popular with the legislators than we’ve ever been, because they’re absolutely appalled at their behavior.”

Can you imagine the MSM’s reaction if evangelicals or any form of religion (excluding Jews and Muslims of course) were acting like these Occupy morons?

"Occupy" was never about the 1% vs the 99%, or about Wall Street.

It was always about Leftist "anarchists" and disruptors trying to take down government.

It has now morphed into a Leftist rebel underground that is hiding in plain sight within the parks and open spaces of our cities, waiting for the call from Obama to rise up en masse to cause chaos and destruction when Obama needs it to.

Hey Bracy. Stop bitching and do something about it.

Show videos of the disruptions to all your local and state politicians, the local police, and the local media. Ask the local District Attorney what kind of legal action both you/your organization and the police can take against the disruptors (public nuisance, disorderly conduct, demonstrating without a permit, assault and battery, etc).

Find out who “Dallas” is and put his photo out for everyone to see and know about. Send it around the country. Have him trailed and see who and where his contacts are.

If he is a paid agitator, perhaps you can have the police file federal charges against him for crossing state lines to incite riots and violence.

Don’t complain. Fight back, or quite whining.

Yeah, don’t you know these people are just simply all about “economic justice”.
How pathetic, if any group that would have a conservative bent to them were to do anythign similar to a group they would be tossed in jail and the media would crucify them.
Sickening.

The “Occupy” movement was supposed to be about the inequality issue, but they have formed mini-mobs to attack pro-life and pro-family groups and individuals in their own local communities.

The Occupards attack these people with that super-annoying “People’s Microphone”, and put the whole thing on video. Now they are throwing condoms at Roman Catholics—I imagine that the “People’s Microphone” and the video-making are being used, too.

The Occupards are NOT about solving the shrinking of the middle class, which is discussed in such publications as the Harvard Business Review, NOT just the “communist workers’ daily” or whatever. They are simply a Rent-a-Mob, to be used by obama, the gaysbian and feminazi movement, and who knows who else (muslims?) to create chaos and perhaps trigger martial law and dictatorship. Yikes!!!

Perfect post.
I have had this printed out and displayed close to my desk and have often thought how true this is.

So many fit this description, so many “friends” and family members; sometimes even I fit some of these descriptions, but I pray to God for help in becoming a better person.
It’s difficult to know how to deal with family members and friends...do you “turn away” as commanded, or do we try to sway?
Interesting times...

I don’t know what point this action truly makes. Are OWS types not for progress and the hope of future that children bring?

Sounds like they don’t know what condoms are for.

Throwing them at girls doesn’t work at all.

Well, these people who did that to these girls are nothing but bullies. Bullies with an agenda but bullies still. I used to be the typical radio/electronics, and later computer and role playing gamer, nerd who got bullied in grade and junior high school. Mom told me that you have to fight them back and defend yourself. In doing so, you have to accept the fact that you might get beat up and bleed at your end but still fight for yourself or they will walk all over you everytime. If somebody would come back at them and give them a knuckle sandwich, maybe some of them will wise up, stop it and go home. However, a lot of these people might not do that, well, it is their ideology that drives them. In that case, we have these outcomes where we win either by inflicting so much pain on them, they cry "Uncle" and stop or they do the same to us. Myself, I think we need to be prepared to fight and win, I fear being on the losing side of this, we need to win this one. We are in an ideological "Cold War" but it seems to be getting hotter, this has been brewing for the last 10, 50 or even 100 years. We need to prepare and prepare to win, there are no alternatives.
