Outrage!… St. Louis Mayor’s Office Lashes Out at Tea Party After Sexual Assault Is Reported at #Occupy St. Louis Squatters Camp

Earlier today it was reported that a woman was sexually assaulted at the #Occupy St. Louis squatters camp earlier this month. The news only broke today after it was reported first by two local bloggers.

Later today in an interview with KMOV TV, the mayor’s Chief of Staff Jeff Rainford commented on the assault by lashing out at the tea party. He also called St. Louis Police Sgt. Gary Wiegert, the officer who broke the story, an extremist. Outrageous!

Liberals go to unprecedented lengths to defend the OWSers.

Their criminality seems to bring no censure from elected public officials.

He knew this before he opened his mouth. The leftist news media, howver, eagerly reported this as gospel.

Uh, I don't' know what this headline here is all about, but the video shows an angry police officer decrying "local control" in the "Occupy" situation and complaining about the mayor's interference. The police officer is identified as a member of the Tea Party.

Next the mayor comes on and says that StL has had things well under control and that this police officer was an extremist who probably didn't reflect the views of the Tea Party.

What's so outrageous about that?

Of course not, but there was no way he was going to miss an opportunity to point out the police sergeant's lobbying gig.

Do they do a lot of “recreational” drugs in the mayor’s office?

The article doesn't say much. But was the Mayor attacking the Tea Party, because bloggers brought the assault to the attention to the public?

In other words, if it wasn't for 2 Tea Party bloggers, nobody would have known of the assault, and nobody needed to know.

On the other hand, if it would have been a Tea Party event that this happened, you can bet the Mayor would have been leading the 5, 6 and 10 o'clock news, screaming for criminal indictments against ALL Tea Partiers.

IIRC, Missouri was the state where police were targeting people with right wing or christian bumper stickers.

St. Louis is also the city where SEIU uniformed purple people beaters mugged a black tea partier in front of the media and plenty of witnesses, put him in the hospital and were let off by the legal system.

St. Louis city, STL county and adjoining Jefferson county were big time proponents of the “Obama Truth Squad”.

Folks it is time to admit you cannot deal rationally with an irrational opponent. You can't fight by the rules if your foe does not respect the rules. You cannot meet your adversary at some hypothetical common ground when they seek your total destruction.

EVERYTHING coming out of the Left/Libs/Dems says they do not consider you an equal, deserving respect comprimise and negotiation.

Look at their rhetoric. Look at their tactics. Look at their actions. They are seething with hatred. They are blinded by a passionate belief that you are EVIL.

Having arrived at that conclusion they are free to use what ever means necessary to eliminate/defeat/destroy you.

If you do not meet force with force...you will be annihilated.

So basically he wanted to cover it up like the scandals in the colleges?

No, you just don’t know how to Think Like A Liberal:

See, the Tea Party is responsible for EVERYTHING. It is so because it exists. Therefore, the only solution is to destroy the Tea Party!

Liberals are all about logic and stuff, you know...

Watch the video and see post #7.

The cop saiblamed the mayor’s office. Some guy from the mayor’s office replied.

The guy from the mayor’s office sounded like the same one - an illusion, no doubt, but there is nothing here. Save your indignation for another occasion.

What is his kvetch? Those rotten Tea Partiers wouldn’t accept the woman, so she was driven to go to an #Occupy camp instead, where she got raped?

The usual background of these types of extremist democrat liars is that they are totally corrupt bribe-taking, public treasury looting thieves of the worst sort. This evil pig certainly looks the role.

... the Mayor is a Democrat, right?

What do I win?

Once upon a time St. Louis had 800,000 people living in it.

Now it's just a bit over 300,000
