Radicals Smash Windows at NYC Business in Chilling Display of Violent ‘Black Bloc’ Tactics
By Madeleine Morgenstern | The Blaze – 2 hrs 24 mins ago

Two people were arrested in New York City Saturday night after Occupy Wall Street-linked protesters vandalized storefronts in what was described as “black bloc” tactics, the New York Times reported.

A black bloc is a protest tactic where protesters wear black clothing and mask their faces to make it harder for police to pick out individuals.

**SNIP**

The East Village blog EV Grieve reported people around the park said protesters smashed windows at Starbucks and a 7-11.

“About 50 ppl dressed in black bashing windows, attacking 7-11 sign, chanting ‘nypd go to hell,’” Twitter user @Ewingweb tweeted at 8:57 p.m.

‘nypd go to hell,’

Kids, this is not how you make friends with the police.

I wouldn’t think it would take much longer for some enterprising lawyer to attach all these costly vandalisms with G. Soros and his employee, Van Jones.

Radicals? How about terrorists?

In a better world with a patriot at the helm, thesr terrorists would be in prison. Under the corrupt Obama administration, however, they are encouraged.

"wear black clothing and mask their faces to make it harder for police to pick out individuals"

And when the owners open fire on them they won't be able to allege racism.

Sounds like conspiracy to obstruct justice.

This is the atmosphere that Obama has encouraged and nurtured. I HOPE that our citizenry realizes where this all originated. The First Community Organizer must be quite proud of his minions. They are doing his work.

Hahahaha!

And New York loves this! Starbuck's will bring them gourmet coffee tomorrow morning, and all the Toni restaurants that had their storefronts smashed will cater to the OWS thugs every culinary whim on a daily diet.

The NYT swoons at these antics and can't praise them enough. Meanwhile, the delis and coffee shops close and go bankrupt, blaming Bush for the lack of paying patrons.

Hahahahaha!

I am just waiting for the day that some communist judge (I will no longer say Democrat) makes a precedent setting ruling that such actions are “protected political expression”.

Local shop Ray’s Candy Store, which has served “Occupy fries” in honor of the movement, tweeted several messages in disgust of Saturday’s events.

“ATTN: #OWS- Your actions tonight in the #EastVillage were abhorrent. Any sympathy people may have for your movement suffers with this crap,” @RaysCandyStore tweeted.

Wake up you idiot! What do you think you are promoting in supporting these fools?!

Just how close is the East Village to Wall Street anyway?

These hooligans really think that Star Bucks and 7-11 are oppressing people and are responsible for cheating people?

It is about time that these OWS people are evicted from where ever they are squatting or sent to jail. Stop encouraging this anti-society lay-a-bouts.

They tried this shit in Chicago in 1968. When enough was enough, Mayor Daley issued "shoot to kill" orders. Peace returned to the city like gently falling rain.

Of course NYC doesn't have that kind of leadership, with weasel Bloomberg wetting his pants at Gracie Mansion.

Let a Tea Partier go up to the mike to read a few lines from the U.S. Constitution and media reacts as if Hitler is giving speeches at a Nuremburg rally.

Let the violent brown-shirt punks in the OWS mobs run rampant all over the city committing violence and destruction of property, defacing like it's krystalnacht nostalgia night, and the media doesn't even bat an eyelash.

Yes, it’s crispy critter time ala Vietnam. I’ll bring the marshmellows and hot dogs. You bring the beer. We can then piss on their ashes.

Lisa Fithian, an Occupy movement agitator is an old marxist organizer. Wherever she is, trouble follows. Time to arrest her red ass and jail her for life.

The Cheka foot-soldiers are getting more active with every passing day...

IMHO, they are probably implementing a well-designed strategy for creating the conditions for martial law...

It's important to them to get the National Guard or Army Reserv into a position of being the ones tasked to begin the confiscation process...

The Cheka scum (which includes Acorn II, DHS, NBPP, and all those who voted for obamao) will then swing into a well-coordinated full-scale spree of bloody chaos...
