‘Occupy’ Mom ‘Won’t Stop’ Putting Protest Above Her Kids’ Safety
CNS News ^ | 11/11/2011 | Craig Bannister

The Occupy DC mom who used her two toddlers to block a convention center door amid mayhem says she’s not going to stop using her kids as human blockades.

On Nov. 4, when Occupy DC was protesting in front of an Americans For Prosperity (AFP) event at the Washington Convention Center, this Occu-Mom set up her blockade with her two little kids in front of one of the doors.

MRCTV captured on video the two distressed toddlers sitting in a toy wagon amidst the police intervention and ensuing pushing and shoving.

On Tuesday, Nov. 8, MRCTV caught up with Occu-Mom once again – still protesting with her little ones in tow – and asked her about placing her kids in harm’s way.

“We decided to block the doors of the convention center,” she said of the AFP protest. “They are my children, and I was protesting, and we protest together.”

Ya just know that the otherwise eager to butt in liberal social workers are not going to pay squat in attention to this. Shows what their gods are, entities to which it is even acceptable to sacrifice innocent children.

In another time and another place, this sort of behavior could get rewarded with a “Hero of the Soviet Union” medal.

Where the hell is Child Protective Services in this instance? Those children need to be taken from her, IMHO.

Corporations pay Social Security tax and Medicare tax, but they don’t collect benefits from either. They pay a corporate income tax on their earnings, but they don’t get to vote in elections. Isn’t that “taxation without representation?” Somebody should ask the protestors what a “profit margin” is and what is the average profit margin for a corporation????

I agree that “in another time and another place” this might be found to be acceptable , but this isn’t the time , nor the place to risk kids safety.

She alledged that there was no danger , except for the danger created by police. She preferred ideology to her childrens safety . The very fact that she stated the kids were in no dnager until the police arrived says it all !!

To knowingly place your children into risk is called “child abuse” ( since they are too young to give consent).

Family court or juvenile protective sercvices should take action and look into this incident. If an incident reoccurrs and a child is hurt, she owns the responsibility.

I believe the doors that were blocked by her children and their wagon were the main access doors , and are also fire doors .

‘Occupy’ Mom ‘Won’t Stop’ Putting Protest Above Her Kids’ Safety

The faintest echo of what Martin Luther King, Jr. did in deliberately putting kids at risk in his marches in Birmingham. Many people had warned him about this, but MLK chose mob action and endangered children to promote his politics:
The final phase of Project C introduced a revolutionary and controversial new tactic that used young people in their demonstrations. On May 2, 1963, the first children came out and marched through the streets of Birmingham. By the end of the day 959 children ranging from ages 6–18 had been arrested. By May 3, massive amounts of demonstrators were participating and Bull Connor ordered for the use of fire hoses and K-9 attack dogs. This didn’t stop the demonstrators, only generating bad publicity of Connor through the news media. The use of fire hoses continued for several days and by May 7, Connor and the police department had jailed over three thousand demonstrators.
Like his hero Gandhi, MLK was willing to screw over all sorts of people to get what he wanted. For both of them, the means justified the ends.

Well, there’s homeschooling parents who include God in their curriculum...that’s much more important than a negligent liberal mom who uses her children as props and puts them in dangerous situations.

Good parents aren't psychotic enough to stalk and kill you. Perhaps along with your family.

You don’t understand. She wants those children hurt, then she can blame Conservatives for it.

This mom should be charged with reckless endangerment for using her child in a potentially dangerous situation. It might even be possible to charge her with using her children in a criminally neglect way, i.e. as “human shields”.

I wonder if anyone has complained or filed a complaint with the DC authorities on this stupid and selfish behavior.
