Occupy DC tries, fails to trigger Mob incident
RedState.com ^ | November 5th | Moe Lane

Posted on 11/05/2011 5:33:36 PM PDT by Chris in VA

Background: Americans for Prosperity is having its annual summit this weekend, and the Occupy movement decided to send some people over to disrupt it – which is to say, they tried to rush the building. They failed, of course – the American Left simply is not very good at demonstrations* – but in the process of expressing their inner kindergarteners (the ones that weren’t using actual kindergarteners as props/riot shields, that is) some protesters got hit by a car. And we almost had an incident over it – only it turns out that ‘protesters got hit by a car’ actually means ‘some protesters threw themselves in front of a car.’

Don’t bring a protest sign to a car fight.

I’m at the AFP event. They ODC idiots came from two sides. Very coordinated. Some conservatives got caufht outside while grabbing a smole. One woman, about 60 yrs old, got knocked over and got a bloody nose. Another woman got literally pushed against the glass doors from the rush of cimmies. A friend saw the jump in front of the car. The car was going about 2 miles per hour. The ODC girl over-acted the “hit” and her “fall”. But to be save an ambulance came. After the AFP event they yelled nasty things at us but police presence was high enough the wasn’t any assaults that I’m aware of at that point. Great AFP event btw

I think Tigercap is e-mailing from some smartphone and is live on scene. The mis-spells are keys close together. Take it as a firsthand account of the mayhem of the Romper Room Revolutionaries.

When we start actually running over these clowns, then their numbers will dwindle...

Epic Fail.

“When we start actually running over these clowns, then their numbers will dwindle...”

I agree. If you have a 1,000 clown circus, and you run over 500 clowns, you get a smaller clown circus.

They say that for better accuracy, it's a good idea to get used to accepting the autocorrect suggestions by just hitting the space bar.

I finally gave up and bought a folding Bluetooth keyboard for my phone. Hated spending the money, but a real keyboard is just plain wonderful. It took me forever to key anything to a client, for instance, because of the keys too close together thing. Since I work out of the client’s office and usually am in several a day, doing e-mail and notes with a keyboard just makes my life so much better.

I will get a folding keyboard if they get Ice Cream Sandwich working on the 5” Dell streak.

Or after I upgrade to the forthcoming Samsung Note. I only have Android 2.2 at the moment - but i could never go back to a smaller screen than 5”.
