'hands-off' .. BS, she picked her side years ago.
Recall efforts will likely accelerate..
How is it “hands off” when you encourage city employees to join the mob and give them the day off to do it??
Oakland business owners may as well just board up and close their businesses and open one elsewhere.. and even then, Quan won’t get why they would want to move.
Why can’t they occupy her house? She should have to endure several hundred smelly weirdos encamped on her property.
From the looks of things, more or the “regular public” not involved in the OWS protesting will be hurt. Who will be called responsible? In wonder if the City of Oakland can look forward to some expensive legal bills trying to defend themselves against dereliction of duty claims?
“It’s not about anarchists versus liberals, it’s about (expletives) versus Occupy Oakland,” said the meeting facilitator.
Aren’t the (expetives) part of their stupid 99%? Duh, lay down with dogs, you might wake up with fleas (though all dogs I know are cleaner than these occupy pigs).
I suppose she’s not worried about them burning down the city? If that’s the case then the police should just all go home and get their families out of the city... Then let the idiots go wild. I’m sure nothing would happen - after all these people are “peaceful”. The bonfire last night was for HEAT - the people are cold, y’know? It’s their “right” to burn the city for warmth!
Send the commie bitch back to Red China. She’ll like it there.
Last night I was happy, for the first time, people in the plaza started communicating with us ... they said ‘we’re not part of what’s happening over there.’ We advised them to stay separate and not let the provocateurs get into the camp.”
Why didn’t she advise them to GTF home or wherever they came from. Whether they admit it ot not they are at fault.
take it to San Fran... I’m all in favor of burning saddom to the ground
we’d get the added benefit of pinning the images on every democrat and rino
“During a three-hour meeting Thursday morning the group reached an anti-vandalism consensus that sought to separate the main movement from those who smashed property, lit fires and attacked police. But rather than apologize outright, the group decided to tell the damaged businesses that they were sorry and offer to help.”
Twinkles up for anti-vandalism!
It took them THREE HOURS to reach consensus on that point??? They may claim these are agent provocateurs not associated with them, but the fact that they have had speakers addressing the crowds saying that violence is necessary and that they didn’t distance themselves from that to begin with kind of puts the lie to their claims. I love how they think their “consensus” will do ANYTHING to stop the behavior, or that it absolves them of ALL wrong-doing... They KNEW this would happen, and if they claim they didn’t they are all liars...
Hey, I followed Jerry Brown, I have nothing to live up to.
The “Pussification of America” on display for all the world to see.
There ain't no Leftist, like a FEMALE SF Bay Area corporate/bureaucrat Leftist.
These creatures lay awake at night giggling while they fantasize about running concentration camps.
That's not an exaggeration.
What is happening in Oakland is a dereliction of duty of the mayor and the police.
Shutting down a port is an act of terrorism. Why is it being tolerated at all?
Lefty Democrat mayors are pussywhipped by street miscreants—becasue they ahree with the OWS agenda. They need to be exposed and vilified.
Quan should be arrested.
Based on her actions to date, Mayor Quan seems to be pre-Occupied.
