George Will: ‘I wish the Occupy Wall Street demonstrators long life and ample publicity’ Jeff Poor - The Daily Caller 44 mins ago

Conservative commentator George Will wished the Occupy Wall Street movement “long life and ample publicity” Sunday while explaining how the movement could hurt Democrats’ electoral prospects.

“[T]he tea party was the bourgeoisie in revolt and they immediately went into the business of winning elections and running candidates,” Will said on ABC’s “This Week with Christiane Amanpour.” (RELATED: George Will: Cain’s Florida straw poll ’caused liberals’ heads to explode’)

“I disagree with some of the Republicans. I wish the Occupy Wall Street demonstrators long life and ample publicity for two reasons: I think they do represent the intellectual spirit of the American left, but also I remember 1960s. We had four years of demonstrations like this led up to 1968.............

I agree with Will. These fleabaggers are giving Cheech and Chong a lot of new material for a new movie.

OBAMAVILLE

Coming soon to your city.

Enjoy watching the dirtiest, filthiest, laziest element the Democrat society has to offer.

Obamavilles- be sure to give him FULL credit for all of them.

THAT was perfect- putting Pelosi’s quote with that picture. Sums up their existance- and her purpose- perfectly.

This is what they are and what they stand for.

And don’t forget, like Pelosi bragged about, they will be able to do this- or write poetry or that book they have wanted to for so long, or paint and get free health care.

I can see Mr. Will's point. If this goes on there will be a new face to the Democrat party.

Unfortunately for them, it will be this one.

Will is counting on a major electoral pushback out of revulsion at what they will end up seeing from this mob. The story has just begun, with mindless chants getting the masses ready to instigate violence. The attack on the Smithsonian yesterday was just a whiff of things to come. And of course the Alien Agitator is aiding and abetting all the way.

LOL, I agree with Will. Every time Obama, Pelosi, or anyone else on the left praises them in one moment and we have photos of them acting like spoiled, crying brats in the second moment, it just boosts the right and makes people disgusted with the left.

These protesters are having growing problems with sanitation, and, how to say, bathroom issues.........

Some of the protesters don’t see the ironies, of them using cellular phones and computers, developed by evil capitalists, to organize their efforts.

Nor do they see irony of wolfing down the pizzas delivered, by such companies as Pizza Hut and Godfather and Papa John’s. Evil capitalists all.

Heck, Godfather’s has to be rejected and boycotted, due to Herman Cain having been CEO of that company.

I agree with his take.I think the majority of Americans who are independents are appalled by what they see in the streets and are quietly resolving to vote the deems out in 2012.

This has been going on for years in and around Seattle under the moniker of “Tent City.”

The goals are identical.

The people “organizing” these “non-events” are of the exact same cloth.

It is all a device of the left to ensure the left retains the White House after 2012, whether it is Obammie the Commie, Hillary the National Socialist, or any of the Watermelons of the green party. All of them have the same goal, just different characters they pretend to be.

I think sooner or later, there will be a massive health problem - rats, other rodents, diarrhea due to contaminated food, dysentary, flu, pneumonia, spread of other dangerous viruses - and then the city will have to clear them out

Yep, When she said that it made my skin crawl. So glad I worked hard all those years the get into medical school and to get good training so that I could have the government take over my profession and ensure that young Marxists aren't restricted by having to actually work. How would they march and 'write books and poetry' if they had to have real jobs and contribute to their own health care?.

Could you see Pelosi and the leftist and hollywood elite sharing a $30,000 a plate Obama fund raise with the scum in the Occupy crowd? Pelosi wouldn’t even let one of those Flea Bags server her food.

People should phone Brookfield Properties, which manages this “public park” to demand that the feebaggers be removed. They respond that it is a “public park” - all the more reason to remove them!
