Democrat-Backed ‘Occupy Wall Street’ Protests Turn Violent (VIDEO)
FoxNation.com ^ | Oct 6 | Staff

Thousands of union workers joined protesters marching through the Financial District Wednesday for Occupy Wall Street's largest rally yet against "corporate greed." The march was mostly peaceful - until after nightfall, when scuffles erupted and some of the younger demonstrators were arrested when they tried to storm barricades blocking them from Wall Street and the Stock Exchange. Witnesses said about 200 people tried to push through barricades and police responded with pepper spray and penned them in with orange netting. A video posted on the Occupy Wall Street Twitter feed late Wednesday night showed police swinging at a protestor with a night stick.

Obama and his thug partner in crime, Jimmy Hoffa, are responsible for any blood in the streets. They called for it. They own it.

This Wall Street Protest is stupid. They have no ideas what they really want. If they want to shut down corporations then it's self-defeating.

You can rest assured some media dork is going to try to make that case.

The only good news is that no matter what happens now we get rid of ultra RINO Mayor Bloomberg. If he does nothing and allows the financial district to be burned New Yorkers will see him as weak. If he busts heads he will be so hated by the left won't be able to play his RINO games any more.

Wish someone would wave this story under the protesters' noses. I'd love to see their reaction to it.....

My how things have changed since the "Hard Hat Riot" when the Wall St. suits joined with union members to assail the hippie traitors.
PS...the wiki rendition of events that day is rife with lies.

That’s probably the first beating any of those kids ever got. It’s been long overdue.

Self determination in a constitutional republic can get ugly however in a classical context the protestors are still engaged in redressing grievances with government. They’re asking for their own bailouts, government support, etc. It doesn’t look good but it’s still a petition.

If/when they attempt direct, forceful redistribution of private wealth then check your ammo. They may go that way soon since the government’s forceful redistribution of wealth isn’t providing them enough benefits. If they can’t get it from gov they may try and take it from others.

Protests in New York and across the country are modeled on the Islamic Spring (Egypt, Tunisia, Syria, etc). Our US Government has said nor done anything to thwart this domestic subversion. The veil is lifting on America's confrontation with Marxism.

Obama and Soros are one purposeful team from the very beginning and especially now. American society under Obama's Presidency has suffered many near critical blows pushing us to the brink. All the while his uber-liberal wing impatiently waited for the pay off.

ALL these protests have been orchestrated as Part Two of America's destructive change to a Marxist society. Obama controls America's security, intelligence and enforcement resources. Their traditional roles have been reversed to pacifists, enabling the anarchists.

Obama's mask is coming off. It is getting more ugly, deadly and cruel by the momemt as we slowly slide into civil war.

They would love to get something like the London riots going, but it’s hard to pull that off when most of what you have to work with here is a bunch of confused stoners.

I bet if Wall Street came up with a few million more $$ for Hussein, these assclowns would disappear real quick.

In my opinion, this is nothing more than manufactured outrage by a few people and the only ones not yawning are in the media.

This is going to grow. I truly believe this may end up being the reason behind the suspension of the elections next year. I hope I am wrong but why the silence from the top? Where is the media calling out these protests as violent and unamerican like they did against the TEA party rallies?

My gut tells me that this is sanctioned by the executive branch and one house of congress.

Makes me sick.

This Administration is linked to the trafficking o f guns and grenades to the Mexican Drug Cartel.Has as its figurehead a
Community Organizer. who admits he was a Marxist Revolutionary in College. Had Van Jones as an Advisor —now an unindicted co-conspirator.Is in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood. And a good buddy to Hugo Chavez.And no doubt the
Madman of Iran. Just look at this Administration— and the Unions/ and the boyz from CAIR , And the DOJHey to these guys it’s the Sixties redux-with Iphones —and cell phones— and flashmobs and all the violence and thuggery of the beguiled.

They threw in with the communists. Under communism, you work according to your abilities and receive according to your needs. They needed a good ass kicking.

But if you try, sometimes you just might find.

Dont be fooled. They know exactly what they want. The complicit media isn't going to show you or tell you what they want, so that the protesters can dupe as many people into joining them as possible.

As one who does not excuse for police misconduct, I must say that the NYPD has shown remarkable restraint with these dirtbags — almost too much. But these anarchists must learn that there are some things that you just can’t do without serious consequences. Like rushing a police barricade. If you do it, you’re going to get your butt kicked.

“They have no ideas what they really want. “

What do you expect, these are the same mindless minions that voted for Obama.

The lemmings of the DNC, simply doing what their told.
