PROVIDENCE, RI, January 30, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – Demonstrators from the Occupy Wall Street movement threw condoms on Catholic schoolgirls, refused to allow a Catholic priest to give a closing prayer, and shouted down a pro-life speaker at a Rhode Island right to life rally on Thursday, according to its organizer. The event marked the third time protesters associated with the movement have disrupted a pro-life meeting in a week.

About two-dozen members of Occupy Providence hiked from Burnside Park to the 39th Annual Pro-Life State House Rally organized by the Rhode Island State Right to Life Committee on Thursday. Protesters with Occupy Providence.

The pro-life organization’s executive director, Barth E. Bracy, told LifeSiteNews.com that, near the end of the rally, the Occupiers “strategically fanned out with military precision.”

That’s when they “started showering condoms down on some of the girls from a Catholic high school.”

Seems like these folks are guilty of assault and battery on high school girls.

Maybe they are marching orders from HHS head Kathleen Sebelius to attack Catholics and Pro-Lifers whenever the opportunity presents itself. Sounds like the tactics being used in Wisconsin are spreading to other places like Rhode Island.

People need to start fighting for their rights and their children.

Maybe they are Romney supporters from Massachusetts...

From the article:

Dallas told Bracy he was on a 13-city national tour to teach Saul Alinsky tactics to local organizers.

They are not even hiding their agenda -- friends in high places -- Obama, Sebelius, and Romney...

Considering the number of abortions each year - the only time these people use condoms is when they throw them.

I’ve never in my lifetime felt closer to a new civil war in this country than I do right now. People are going to start fighting back, and very soon......and it’s going to get really, really ugly.

These thugs [brownshirts] need to be arrested for assault/battery on the High School girls.

I am sure that if someone threw used condoms at Obama's daughters, the liberal left would have fits.

I am sure if Chelsea Clinton had used condoms thrown at her, the liberal left would have fits.

I can’t stress enough the fact that EVERY public event - be it 2nd amendment, taxes, pro-life - needs to be VIDEOTAPED. In addition ALWAYS carry a camera because you never know what you’ll see.

While I hope that some video will pop up I am quite confident that if a video was made this would go viral. Of course Democrat leaders would claim that these are rabble-rousers that don’t reflect the core of the movement (just like they did in responding to the Oakland Occupiers that burned the flag) but in the end it would still put them on notice for any future thuggery.

It’s going to be interesting to see what happens in Chicago in a few months with the G8 meeting but I guarantee you it will not be pretty...and that’s - in a perverse way - good. As these folks get more and more radical you will see a huge swaying of opinion espoused at water coolers and kitchen tables alike that will not be kind to Occupiers and the stench will stink up the Democrats from the political elite all the way down to the grassroots.

Sadly, I am basically in agreement with these two comments. The OWS movement seems to be morphing into a brownshirt-style of street fighters, not law-abiding dissidents. The potential is certainly there, and the current administration will do nothing to stop them. It's up to local cities to rein them in. And I am not sure they are up to the task.

As is nearly self-evident, when local law enforcement fails, the victims eventually fight back, and fight back hard. Remember the Committees of Vigilance? They were mostly justified, and mostly caught and hung the right scumbags. When will our government, at every level, stand up for public order? Also, when will the MSM begin to cover the worst actions of OWS? Maybe never, or until something world-changing happens. These are truely interesting times.

If this would have happened in a small town in Texas, Arizona, Wyoming, etc., I suppose some of the OWS folks would have been shot and killed after tossing the used condoms...

There have been cases where people with AIDS have been charged with attempted murder for trying to spread AIDS.

So firing on these folks might be considered a form of self defense...

OWS in 2011 was the test run.
OWS in 2012 will be used to disrupt church gatherings, conservative groups` rallies, and finally voters` polls.

This is Obama`s mob and he`s liking the tumult it`s causing.

Won`t happen. Obama`s thugs will pull the mobs back just enough each time to let the rage die off a bit, then send them forward again.

They know exactly what they`re doing. We don`t.

OWS is a public nuisance and should be outlawed for camping on city streets. Here they are saying they will disrupt our right to assemble peaceably as guaranteed by the US Constitution. Such breach of the peace needs to be dealt with fast and justly.

“These thugs [brownshirts] need to be arrested for assault/battery on the High School girls.”

The Brownshirts were used to shut these people down; that was why people embraced Nazism in Germany.

I remember when those pervert activists stamped on the Host in St. Patrick’s Cathedral; while small groups remain, that was the end of coddling queers by the Catholic Church.

“I’ve never in my lifetime felt closer to a new civil war in this country than I do right now. People are going to start fighting back, and very soon......and it’s going to get really, really ugly.”

I’ve gotten the same feel from these stories, but have yet to experience or see any of the things described; I’m less than 10 miles west of NYC, one mile northeast of Newark NJ, and without these stories I’d never know this stuff was even happening.

That's what I think. That seems to be the purpose that OWS was created for. Plus trashing Republican campaign offices, harassing donors at their homes and businesses, and generally making life difficult for those who dare to oppose "The Won".

Yep.. this attack on the Catholic gathering occurred on the heels of the church defying the abortion and contraception insurance requirements in Obamacare. IMO, this was planned and coordinated by Regime thugs.

I think you're right on this. I'm working on figuring out who will be in front of my sights and who will be behind them. Watching the comments / links posted by my friends on Facebook is becoming very interesting...hehe....

These people are organised and financed by someone.

Who is telling them where to go and who is paying their bills to get there?

If they want to go around jostling people they need to get jostled back—hard.

They are just gearing up folks. If Obama is down in the polls come June, the anti-capitalist, ant-Christian riots will go nuclear. Thugs will rape and pillage in the streets and the President will encourage them with, “I can’t of course condone this, but.....” and hint at a general pardon if only calm is restored. He will then go on to state that he is the ONLY person positioned to bring it all to an end, once he is re-elected.

And if that's what it takes to clean up the country, so be it. They say they want a revolution... go ahead and start one!

Pro-Lifers do this all the time to protect themselves...

Conservatives are now at a point that they must realize they will be physically assaulted for their beliefs.

Tea Party/other groups need to bring videocameras to all events.

There was the case of the woman badly injured in Washington, DC a while back by being pushed steps by thugs...

Your point on videotaping is well taken.

I think most of these ‘events’ haven’t really occured, that they’re really a figment of someones imagination, or there would be video of them.

The use of USED CONDOMS has happened before -- circa the early 2000's. A Cathedral in Canada had USED CONDOMS litered all over the place. Two elderly nuns were pushed around by these liberal thugs/brownshirts.

But if you think this did not happen, there was the case of the elderly woman in DC who was badly injured after being shoved down steps. There was no video of that incident -- except after people going to help the woman after she had been pushed down the steps. That incident made FoxNews.

There might be some sort of video of this.

I really hope that it might surface.

If nothing else, there would be the testimony of people at the event -- which might mean there are quite a few witnesses to what happened.

I’m certainly willing to be persuaded, but I don’t see any video at the link you provided.

I’ve attended a number of Tea Party events, as you may have also.

These events are rife with video cameras, and at the least sign of discord a dozen cameras are swung into action.

It’s more than a little puzzling that there are no recordings of the event, not by the event organizers, not by participants with video equipment, not even cell phone video.

Because this has been the situation over and over and over again at these Life Events, I’m calling BS not only on this story, but countless other Life Event situations which are long on accusation, and short on video.

I posted at that link asking someone to post links to any video that might exist...

Nothing so far.

When a prolife priest went to say Mass in Rhode Island circa 2005, there was a bomb threat against him. The police made a complete sweep of the church looking for bombs...

I guess there are real whacko's in that area...
