Skip to comments.Arrest outside White House as lawmakers debate protests (Obama supports the protesters)
Posted on 10/09/2011 4:46:50 PM PDT by tobyhill
Politicians fought Sunday to cast the ongoing Wall Street protests in a very different light, with two GOP presidential candidates calling them "class warfare" and prominent Democrats expressing support for the protesters' message.
As lawmakers took to the political talk shows, a crowd of about 100 people protested outside the White House, part of a wave of protests spreading nationwide inspired by the Occupy Wall Street movement.
The Secret Service said one person was arrested and will be charged with assault on a police officer after throwing a shoe at a uniformed officer.
Lisa Simeone, one of the protest organizers, said the man was trying to throw his shoe over the fence of the White House but missed.
Most of those taking part carried an anti-war message -- something that has happened in other cities as well. Several carried signs asking President Barack Obama to join them for a "beer summit."
Rep. John Lewis, D-Georgia, who visited a protest Saturday in Atlanta, told CNN Sunday that the protesters "want to be heard."
"And at the same time they want to speak to America, speak to people in power, to officials of the American government but also to the business community, especially Wall Street, to corporate America, to bankers. They're saying, in effect, that we bailed out Wall Street and now it's time for Wall Street and corporate America to help bail out the American people.

“want to be heard.”
Let’s send Perry to heard them up.
I’m glad that Barry has chosen to “support” the protesters. That not only hurts him but it hurts them also.
or worse they did this in mockery
OMG!! Steny Hoyer and the other guy are HOLDING HANDS!!!! I’ve seen that pic 20 times and NEVER noticewd that!! What MEN hold hands??? YUK!
If you disagree with the Wall Street bail outs, vote Republican in 2012! They’re the ones who tried to stop it.
This takes away the TEA party as the villain. Now we can blame the Obomabots for all the ills in the world.
The TEA Party has polite, clean, upright American citizens. They have those who were never taught how to be human. They're lazy, coveting, and dirty.
This is going to make us look great in 2012.
This is REALLY interesting:
Loudmouth feminazi activist and ACORN/SEIU/Soros ally Lisa Simeone is the SAME Lisa Simeone who is a radio personality and hosts “NPR World of Opera”.
Occupation 2011/Interview with Lisa Simeone/10/4/2011

This morning we interviewed [available on podcast on the site] Lisa Simeone, Lisa is one of the planners of October 2011, during this event people will NONVIOLENTLY resist the corporate machine to demand that our resources are invested in human needs and environmental protection instead of war and exploitation. Starting on October 6, 2011, thousands of concerned Americans will assemble in Freedom Plaza, in Washington DC to take control of our country and our lives. We will occupy the plaza and hold a People’s Assembly where we come up with just and sustainable solutions to the crises we face and demand that these solutions be presented and that the people’s needs be addressed. We will plan and engage in creative acts of civil resistance and demand that our inherent rights and freedoms be protected, and that our children have a chance to live in peace,to breathe clean air, and to grow edible natural food.
Lisa is currently the host of three nationally syndicated programs: Soundprint, Chicago Symphony Orchester Series and NPR World of Opera
It’s a “solidarity” or “civil rights” thing from the 1960’s. That is their favorite decade and they are always trying to relive it.
Steny is also holding a purse.
I think the purse belongs to the lady next to him!! LOL!
Of course Lord Obozo supports the protestors. He and they are paid by the same boss, Herr George $oreA$$!
Video Exposing How Occupy Wall Street Was Organized From Day One by SEIU/ACORN Front The Working Family Party, and How They All Tie to the Obama Administration, DNC, Democratic Socialists of America, Tides and George SoreA$$:
How many of these protestors are getting paid $350 - $650 weekly to protest and got their gig via Craigs list?
Make $350-650 a week protesting on Wall Street.
Steny looks like he is carrying Pelosi Galore’s big purse.
