Why did the liberal mayors oust the Occupier/scumbags this week?
self | 15 November 2011 | self

Posted on 11/15/2011 7:35:12 AM PST by Grampa Dave

Why have so many major cities turned on the Occupiers?

The liberal mayors/leaders of Oakland, Portland, New York City and other cities, this week have decided that the Occupier/scumbags are not welcome. Across the nation liberal mayors have sent in cops in their cities , to move the scumbags out of their encampments and tear down their encampments.

So what has happened and why this week?

Did the mayors finally wake and realized that these scumbags were not the 99% of he/she/its in white hats?

Did the merchants in the impacted areas finally convince the mayors that their businesses were being devastated and would not have a lot of sales tax $‘s to give to the cities due to their lost business?

Did the mayors finally listen to Public Health Doctors/Nurses and others that these encampments were huge germ/virus pools that could threaten large sections of the city's population not involved?

Did the daily rapes/murders/robberies/fights in the encampments finally wake up the mayors?

Did the mayors fear a massive backlash from independent and working democrat voters in their cities or even recalls?

There was probably a lot of the above and other factors that influenced the mayors.

How about another factor. Did the DNC run focus groups of working voters in those cities and find out that the Occupier scumbags in each city were probably costing the Democrats votes across the nation?

Well, something happened, and it probably was not a coincidence, that this week, the left wing mayors of these liberal cities across America, decided to take out the Occupier Garbage, human and infectious garbage.

Is it a coincidence that liberal mayors on the same week across the nation took out the occupy garbage/scumbags?

A massive demonstration had been planned for this Thursday. The highly publicized removal may actually increase participation for a movement that was flagging.

Its theater. The mayors realized their perceived support of OWS is becoming more of a political liability. So they make a show of kicking the smelly punks out, and judges will let them back in.

I expected that action would happen eventually. But I’m surprised that they are all happening at the same time. Something was decided by higher ups behind the scenes.

I never understood how this Occupy movement helped Democrats politically. It seems like these protesters are reliving the late ‘60s and early ‘70s. The protesters of that era thoroughly offended the sensibilities of the people whom Nixon called the “silent majority”.

Though the protesters of that day tapped into antiwar sentiment over the Vietnam war, too many people of “Middle America” couldn’t identify with the free love and pot smoking and general disregard for civilized behavior which those hippie protesters demonstrated. Not unlike the uncivilized behavior at Occupy Wall Street camps today.

The camps were becoming an embarrassment. The nightly TV visuals were not going down well with Joe and Sally Sixpack.

The Left now wants to get them off the tube and to try and mainstream most of their key talking points. Look at the sudden media attacks on Congress, including Democrats like Nancy Pelosi, for insider trading and other forms of Wall Street-based corruption.

They are going to try and sell the idea that only anti-Capitalists can resist that temptation and are the logical choice to fix the country.

The order came down from the White House to end the charade. It didn’t turn into the groundswell that they had hoped (more stimulus dollars wasted) that Barak (surfin’ Hawaiian) Obama could ride like a champion into the election. Now we will be given new polls from the MSM showing that the Occupy movement has lost the support of the nation, thereby justifying its dislocation and keeping surfin’ Barak’s reelection hopes alive.

Your response is my point, why suddenly now across the nation?

That was my feeling re internal polls and focus group feedback showed that this was and could cost votes for the rats across the nation.

You are right. Each day/evening and night the mediots were showing the reality of the occupier scumbags, and the cumulative result were not making Joe and Sally happy!

The DNC and the outhouse probably had a big impact to take out the occupier garbage across the nation:

The Occupods were supposed to be idealistic, liberal counterparts to the TEA Party. The media gushed over them the first few weeks, but the reality has set it, and the libs are only hurt by the comparison.

Not only because we are just a little over a week and a half away from the start of the busy pre-Christmas/Hannukah shopping season, but also for both HEALTH and SAFETY reasons as well.

If Black Friday/weekend sales were seriously impacted by the occupier garbage, this would come back to haunt the outhouse in Decembers financial reports.

If the garbage stayed on the streets through Christmas, Obozo and his rats in congress would be in real trouble.

All the footage showing the squatters at their very best (like squatting to defecate on sidewalks) must be used in the next election along with the words of support from Obama, Pelosi, and the rest of the dems.

Sadly, the lib judges who are hearing the squatter’s case for remaining in the public eye, don’t appear to have gotten the message from Zero that the squatters should be disbanded and go home (and take showers and a course of antibiotics).

I love it when one lib doesn’t know what the other lib is doing.

The coordinated flushing of the Ocuupy-ants is no coincidence. Warning signs were flashing “political Liability” at all democrat polling centers. The useful idiots were no longer useful.

The litter now swept from view means that the MSM will be free to re-write history and forever remind us of the noble and virtuous All-American nature of the Occupy Movement.

It will soon be taught at all levels of public education how this historic movement led by brave and selfless patriots paved the way for a Fairer and Freer America.

Just brings tears to my eyes thinking about it.

Clearly the DNC determined any exploitation had passed it’s prime and it was time to clean up before Thanksgiving.

Scumbags vs Scumbags

“Thanksgiving and Black Friday was approaching.”

As my morning coffee levels approach normal, Thanksgiving/Black Friday, Christmas and other seasonal shopping potential losses probably had a huge impact from DC down to the mayoral levels to clearing out the occupier garbage early this week.

My older son and I escape that shopping madness with a yearly fishing trip on our local river with his son, my grandson. We have a great day fishing while my wife, DIL and 12 year old grand daughter hit the cities/streets and roads.

Their shopping plans remind me of D Day preparations. Our DIL starts locally at 5 am, she comes back for breakfast, unloads her suv and picks up my wife and her daughter. They return at dinner and sometimes the DIL and GD head back out.

There is a group of lady walkers in our area, and they have been going into Gay Frisco for their black Friday event for years, and they said no way if the Occupiers were still there. I had forgotten about these potential economic losses of just Black Friday is the scumbags were still out.

I'd guess that NYC wanted them gone before the T-Giving Day parade, and all of the holiday festivities.

No idea about the rest of the cities. Likely got tired of the extra cost, and the smell.

It's about that the grownups stepped in, IMHO.

You reasons are very valid and then throw in the potential $ loss of Black Friday becoming a no show in the cities infested with the scumbags.

I read in the New York Daily News that a liberal/Civil RightsJudge (formerly a lawyer, naturally) signed a court order to let them back in. I also had read that the Sanitation Department actually “sanitized” the area after all of them were kicked out.

Now that you mention it, I've finally started thinking about OWS. Did anybody start asking Sebelius about the health hazards the unlicensed and un-policed OWS encampment pose?

Is the CDC, HQ'd in Atlanta, on the TB outbreak at OWS:Atlanta?

How about Zuccotti lung?
