OWS Letter to the Editor in USA Today: We Will Storm Wall Street With Guns
Big Journalism ^ | 2/22/12 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 02/22/2012 12:49:43 PM PST by Nachum

Over at USA Today, a self-employed massage therapist from Austin, TX has a letter to the editor responding to an editorial suggesting that Occupy Wall Street has lost its way. (Snip) '' So maybe they should take up their Second Amendment-sanctioned guns and storm Wall Street and our nation’s capitals. If our country doesn’t change, it could very well come to that one day.'' Notice the language here. Rich Latta, the author, threatens outright to head to Wall Street with firearms. Janet Napolitano, where are you? He says they out to head to Washington, D.C. packing heat. Secret Service, you’re

Of course, nothing will come of this. He won't be getting any visits from the febs or nonsense like that.

But, if someone had made such threats on this website, all hell would come down on them from Janet Incompetano and Eric Holder.

Obama’s useful idiots

The problem is that Obama's Idiots are getting off script. They were supposed to be a counter to the tea party. Instead they are turning into a 1968 out of control mob. The tea party was frightening (to the left) because it showed discipline and control. They showed up when called. Spoke of commonly held values of family, unity and tradition. Picked up their trash, and went home without trouble. Discipline and control is the difference between a rabble and an army.

The occupy group can't even work their way up to rabble. They have no common goals. They don't appeal to commonly held values of society. They show up where the democrats don't want them. They destroy the ground they occupy. Finally they won't go away.

I fully expect Obama to do a night of the long knives on Occupy. The original night of the long knives took out the SA in order to win the support of the German Army. The elimination of Occupy will be the price of continued elite, rich, liberal support of Obama. Hippies smoking pot is one thing. However; Warren Buffet and the Hollywood elite don't like hippies with guns taking pot shots at their limousines.

They don't seem to realize that those “wealthy 1 per-centers” can also hire people with guns...much better guns...and much better training.

This is just the kind of threat that will enable the police to not allow them to assemble in the first place.

Nice job, OWS.

We all know that government offices need occupying, not financial institutions working within the law.

The root of our problems are lousy government; not lousy capitalism.

There is no 2A right to storm (civilian) wall street with guns, that is simple armed robbery and/or kidnapping.

"The occupy group can't even work their way up to rabble."

Reminds me of something my Drill Instructor said whilst chastising us young recruits during Marine Corps boot camp.

We had disappointed him during one day at the rifle range so as we heading back to our barracks, he would not allow us to march in formation. He instructed us to pull our covers down as far we could on our heads, then look at the ground, and then cram together and shuffle-step all the way back. The guidon was to be carried upside-down to further humilate us.

He told us at that point in time we were not a platoon, we were a mob. Then he said, "You're not a mob, a mob has a leader! You're nothing but a herd!"

The stinky druggies would be slaughtered by Wall Streeters who have the same second amendment rights. The second amendment is why the Lefties have yet to slaughter anyone in this country in an organized fashion.

They might as well bring Presidential candidate, Roseanne Barr with them.

She wants to re-insitute the guillotine on the Wall Street Bankers.

The wonders of the Dr.Spock treatment of no evil for liberals, gays, illegals, leftist protestors etc...

Reminds me of these people who did nothing while their foster kid molested their daughter, completely corrupt and wussified by job obsessions and a mind of liberalness.

Oh, they go to Vegas and gamble... that’s right, with Reid, where all the big money vaults are kept with thugs with huge guns.

It’s easy to rob WallStreet and banks, but Vegas has never been successfuly robbed.

They are hypocrites, is what they are.

No need to bother the cops with this. If OWS wants to storm someplace, I thinking, why not the Fort Worth Stockyards on Saturday night? Now, that would be interesting....

Agreed some of the Occupy movement is getting off script ,hadn’t thought about a Night of the Long Knives but I don’t think it will happen that way .

It would be way to messy to have the SEIU thugs knifing people, much easier to have DHS/FBI/Postal Inspectors or some other federal LEO bust them for say distributing kiddie porn. That way the are smeared & made to disappear & it’s 100% legal & who wants to be associated with a kiddie pornographer.

Some liberals hate guns, but alot more just hate YOU having a gun. The anarcist black block likes guns & the leftist militants like guns & the gang banger Obama voters like guns. Happy to clarify things on that particular point.

Now while they are modestly profecient at loading a magazine & send lead flying in the “general” direction of a target they are not so great at what is called marksmanship.

Translating: “self employed massage therapist” means he sits around the house playing with himself, aka “taking things into his own hands”.

Another OCW nut who fooled USA Today into thinking he is someone important.
