CHARLOTTE, N.C. Occupy Charlotte protesters reopened their uptown encampment late Friday night at Marshall Park, a site where they expect hundreds to camp, demonstrate and sleep during the Democratic National Convention.

**SNIP**

“There’s been some conversation with the city,” said Scottie Wingfield, an organizer with Occupy Charlotte. “We said we wanted to be in a public space. This is traditionally a park where people have met to protest.”

So the very same people who love Obama, will bge protesting Obama. I knew OWS people are nuts and the liberals at the convention like Obama, Pelosi, Reid and Biden are nuts, but to think the OWS are basically protesting themselves screams multiple personality disorder. The whole of the DNC is a huge mental disease on display for the world to see.

Occupy Charlotte is being brought to you by a generous donation by the Geroge Soros foundation and hundreds of family trust funds.

A senior DNC host committee official confirmed that the BIMA events had been removed from the website's "upcoming events" page.

"This event, like many others on the page, was user generated," a senior Host Committee official told NBC News on Friday. "Upon further review, and because speakers for the event and statements and positions from event organizers were not appropriate and relevant to the Host Committee, Charlotte in 2012 has decided to remove the event from our events calendar."


LOL

"God bless them for their spontaneity. It's independent, it's young, it's spontaneous, and it's focused."

- Nancy Pelosi loves OWS

I think she might have a different opinion after next week.

The city and county have passed some new ordinances to allow them to move these people out ASAP, if they become an embarassment to the Democrats. So have surrounding towns and counties.

I think we may want to change our approach to OWS in this specific case.

As for me, I fully support OWS protesting against the Democrats and Obama. I fully support them raging against the machine, blocking traffic, rioting, and making complete jackasses of themselves in front of the liberal lamestream media.

Further, I fully support the liberal lamestream media putting pictures up of these fine, upstanding, patriotic OWS folks all over the media including newsprint, news radio, talk radio, and the evening news.

I fully support the fact that should this happen, the American people may finally have their eyes opened to what damage the Democrat Party and OWS have done to this country since Barack Hussein Obama was elected, by a foolish, gullibal electorate who pinned their hopes and dreams on one word: CHANGE.

I want OWS on full display at the Democrat Convention so those foolish American's who cast their votes for Obama based on a singular, emotional feeling finally come to their senses and have one thought in mind come election day: CHANGE IT BACK.

I can think of nothing better to demonstrate what is wrong in this country under this President than a public confrontation between these two groups.

Seriously, what better would demonstrate Obama's "divide and conquer" campaign?

I agree with your posts and I’d encourage the OWS freaks to protest their own campaign too. It is nuts though. OWS are the very same people, especially when Obama and the left fully support them.

Wait for Nutty Nancy to blame the OWS violence (or whatever criminal activity that takes place next week at the DNC) on the Tea Party. This women is out of her gourd.

Is 'Ketchup' blocking anything? I always say, if Ketchup is blocked, whack it on the bottom to unblock it.

Kind of like the Romney haters throwing out the spike strips on the road to his Presidency...

So, they're saying that event postings on the DNC website are completely un-moderated? The notice was there for weeks. Could an event entitled "Democrats against Abortion" have been posted to the DNC website?

My take on it is that it's a weasel arrangement.

There's a group set up by the city of Charlotte to run the convention PR as the 'hosting committee', ostensibly with no connection to the DNC.

This is, of course, utter bullshit, as the flap/retreat re the muzz clearly shows.

I'd imagine some 'bright young thing' at the DNC saw an Alinsky opportunity for misdirection, just in case.

Here's the About page for the front group, charlottein2012.com.

Typical .. and the miserable bastards wonder why we trust nary a one of 'em . . .

No worry.

Baraq is going to offer double EBT for 6 months and a section 8 voucher in the city of your choice for anyone coming to the stadium.

The Occupy crew will be overwhelmed, LOL.

This convention is starting to resemble the cast of characters in the Star Wars bar scene.

There’s a special kind of magic when left-wing radicals show up at the wrong convention to raise hell. This has the potential to be another ‘68 Chicago...
