Skip to comments.Occupy Protesters Mobilize for Obama’s Visit (OCCUPIERS TURN ON OBAMA)
Posted on 11/30/2011 8:36:34 PM PST by NYTexan
More than 100 Occupy Wall Street protesters marched to a Midtown hotel on Wednesday night to protest a fund-raising event for President Obama.
One man, wearing a mask of the presidents face and holding a cigar, carried a sign that read, I sold out! Ben Campbell, 28, one of the marchs organizers, said he hoped to prove to skeptics of the protests that the demonstrators were political critics of equal opportunity.
President Obama is coming to town solely to raise money from the richest of the rich, Mr. Campbell said.
The 45-minute march from Bryant Park forced shoppers and theatergoers into retreat on what mostly likely would have been a difficult night to find sidewalk space anyway. At one point, two pedestrians tried to move through the crowd head-on but quickly reconsidered, breaking into a jog in the other direction. You better not go that way, one protester told them moments earlier. Youre going to hit democracy.

They are lying right through their teeth and who cares.
This doesn’t bother Barry much. As long as those rich white folks keep throwing their money at him, he okay with everything else.
Yep. Remember the ‘guilt trip’ OFA email sent out?
Good deal. I’d love to see these scumbags start a full scale riot at an Obama fundraiser.
They should have camped in front of the White House to begin with and protested the unused stimulus money. Now it’s too little too late the wind is no longer to their backs.

If Obama came to my town, I’d be there with a protest sign too.
REMEMBER THE RIOTS OF ‘68
President Obama is coming to town solely to raise money from the richest of the rich,
i doubt the wind will be at any of their backs. these pple have mixed messages.right now the one they want to focus on is obama , etc... tomorrow it will another message they will focus on-they are all a bunch of crybaby pussy guys who sob up in Toronto . It’s all very deceiving,tho-there’s new helpless crybabies and as reported unions backing OWS & around the country...neo-nazi’s,& the rest of whatever you want to call these people. i can only name these. Where’s the vid clip of some neo-nazi’s protesting obama? where’s the vid clip of the unions ?there never was much news from those Hahvahd rag heads on their square ‘cause it’s funded by the Arabs and a “gated” campus... man, i would LOVE to see that one :D :D thinking at any moment that big fat butch dike Big Sis Incompetano is wetting her pants and calling upon her flying monkeys -Now that would be funny wouldn’t it?
Now that most people are really down on the Occupigs, word has gone out to them to trash Dick Obama, who will soon tell us that they started out with good intentions but then they abused their rights. It’s just a plan to try to make obama look like he’s on our side. I bet even Pelosi will ‘turn’ on them soon, now that their camps are disbanded.
We can dream can’t we?
