Occupy DC Protest Thugs Storm Smithsonian Pin Guard Against Wall (Video)

Chanting “The whole world is watching!” the Occupy DC protesters tried to storm the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum today. They pinned a guard against the wall. The mob forced the museum to shut its doors early.

Hey, didn’t we see the tea party do this sorta thing too? NBC Washington reported on the violent mob outing.

According to Smithsonian spokesperson Linda St. Thomas, a crowd of “about 100 to 200 people” tried to enter through the museum’s Mall entrance.

“They were carrying signs and a lot of protest materials,” St. Thomas said in a statement. “You cannot bring that stuff into the museum under any circumstances.”

According to St. Thomas, the crowd tried to shove its way into the museum after being denied entry by security.

“One security guard was grabbed and pinned against the wall. He could not extract himself,” the spokesperson said. “Another security guard came over to help him and ended up pepper-spraying one person.”

Videos quickly circulated online showing Smithsonian security telling protesters to “get back” while protesters and bystanders covered their faces to shield themselves from the pepper spray. At least one person was seen writhing on the ground in apparent agony.

Like Cindy Sheehan and Dan Rather before them, these fools are evidence that it's possible to become evil simply through a sufficiently prolonged and diligent application of stupidity.

I was an armed guard there back in the early 90's. And I can guarantee you I'd have emptied my revolver into these sonsofbitches the second it was warranted!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

“the whole world is watching”??

My God, not that tired old hackneyed cliche again. Let’s hope they get the same treatment that Daley gave them in ‘68.

These “occupy”ing thugs are a taste of what will WHEN the Liberals don’t control any part of the federal government. To them, an electoral loss is a declaration of war. They know the People are against them and so they are angry.

That must have been an interesting gig. I love the Air and Space Museum. The Air Force Museum is close, but not quite as fun.

It did my soul good to see that one guy doubled over, coughing and wheezing.

Yet, the same media was eager to portray any violence done by people who were not even involved with the TEA Party, much less politics in general, as TEA Party endorsed.

I'm sure the lawlessness by the OccupyWallStreet gang with be the top story on CBS/ABC/NBC/CNN news on Monday...right??

Back in the day, if fellow officers were in trouble, one or more of the assailants would have been handed their kidneys. Now we live in a PC controlled society and must baby these miscreants (and they know it).

does anyone know if our pro homo media is actually reporting on what these people are doing i.e. crapping in a cop car, shouting anti Jewish slogans, attacking cops, shouting kill the cops or even this?

The ground-writhing is over-the-top melodramatic.

Clear orchestration for the cameras —simple.

They kept screaming “The whole world is watching!” What the world is seeing is what a bunch of thugs many of these peaceful, tolerant lefties really are.
