Hammer-man to Occupy Norman: "Are you ready to die for your liberalism?"
The Norman Transcript ^ | December 8, 2011 | Joy Hampton

Posted on 12/08/2011 6:14:01 AM PST by SoonerStorm09

NORMAN, Okla. — Members of Occupy Norman marched quietly along a sidewalk in downtown Norman on Wednesday, despite being threatened and having a tent vandalized earlier in the day.

Peyton Gates said an irate man yelled at Occupy protesters currently camping at Andrews Park.

“He threw the hammer at us,” she said. “He also said, ‘I’ll do a lot worse than that.”

While Gates and other Occupy Norman members did not see the man vandalize the tent, they said he made statements of admission to them and threatened them.

“Are you ready to die for your liberalism” was a statement that stuck in all of their minds, according to protesters

The incident was reported to the police, along with a description of the man and the tag number of his truck, Gates said.

I agree.

Nobody would be stupid enough to start an “Occupy” protest in Norman, Oklahoma.

Something is wrong with the statement “He threw THE hammer at us.”

“Vandalism” based upon a METAPHOR?

I think they all watched too many history channel documentaries about the sixties and they want to live it.

I love OK. Finest and friendliest people in the world.

I lived there for 7 year, in Piedmont. My daughter is an OU grad.

There are lefties at OU. But the citizens of the state do not support that nonsense.

OK was the only state that can say that not a single county voted for Obozo. Not one. Says something.

Oklahoma is OK.

That said, the MSM still sucks. I have no clue about the Norman Transcript.

The Norman OK newspaper is a very old one, but it was first bought by a chain owner in 1985.

The current owner is: Community Newspaper Holdings, Inc.

We chose to move to Oklahoma 4 years ago from Denver. Built a beautiful house here for our retirement at a MUCH cheaper price than we could have in Denver, about 1/3 of the price. Great people, very friendly. Love Oklahoma!!

Die for their liberalism?

They’re not even ready to share their Ipads for liberalism.

Good choice.

Some of my ancestors were born in TX during the Republic.

Our family has owned and farmed in this county since 1889.

BUT, If I were to move anywhere in the U.S. except TX, it would be OK.

Outside sports (which I have no interest in) TX and OK have a lot in common.

“He threw the hammer at us,”

Did he throw a sickle too?

*Die for their liberalism?

They're only willing to camp out and pretend to be hippies if the Unions and Soros pays them.

They represent the very worst of our country.

Sounds like one of those pre-cooked “noose hanging at my front door” stories that end up with the perpetrator being the noose-hanger. Yet, the msm fall for it every single time, giving “victims” free publicity.
