Bill O’Reilly to Cliven Bundy supporter: What makes you different from Occupy Wall Street?
Salon ^ | April 23, 2014 | Elias Isquith, assistant editor

Posted on 04/23/2014 7:01:24 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

The Fox News host grills a member of the militia movement on why it's OK for Bundy to break the law but not OWS.

To a significant degree, American politics is a story of insiders vs. outsiders, so it’s inevitable that people among the latter group would be lumped together, even if they’re quite different by any other measure.

Still, it’s probably fair to say that when most people think of Nevada renegade rancher Cliven Bundy, the Zuccotti Park protesters of Occupy Wall Street don’t immediately — or eventually — come to mind.

Yet on the Tuesday night edition of his Fox News show, host Bill O’Reilly drew that very comparison when he had a pro-Bundy militia man as a guest.

“What’s the difference between Mr. Bundy and the Occupy Wall Street crew, that doesn’t respect the federal government for a variety of reasons and feels it has a right to go into a city like Oakland and burn things down?” O’Reilly asked.

The militia-founding Bundy supporter, Scott Shaw of Oklahoma, who seemed a bit surprised by the question, answered that Bundy, unlike OWS, provides America with beef.

“He’s a cattle rancher He’s providing the country with beef,” Shaw responded before adding, “The Occupy movement — to this day, I still don’t know what they’re providing the country with.”(continued)

Obama didn’t send an army of storm troopers with automatic weapons and shoot to kill orders to disperse the Occupy crowds.

Shaw is correct. Bundy provides America with beef. OWS provides America with nothing but beef by-product. And we get enough of that from Warshington as it is.

OWS was asking the govt to TAKE property from rightful owners.

Bundy supporters were asking the govt to LEAVE
property with its rightful owner.

Looks to me like he answered his own question.

Makes me worried because Burning Man says they will be doing their fest next door to the Bundy’s. OWS was mobilized by the Dems and communist party. Bundy better be careful. OWS=Burningman.

Occupy Wall Street people were volunteer shock troops for The Democrat Federal Government of Obama. Pelosi and Schumer.

Reid’s Rustlers were hired shock troops for the Democrat Federal Government of Reid, Obama and Holder.

Occupy Wall Street people attacked businesses in large cities.

Reid’s Rustlers attacked cattle in an isolated Nevada Corral.

Both Occupy Wall Street and Reid’s Rustlers destroyed private property and private jobs.

Both Occupy Wall Street and Reid’s Rustlers were financially supported by the Democrat Obama Administration.

Both Occupy Wall Street and Reid’s Rustlers were publicly encouraged by the Democrat Obama Administration, and the Democrat Left Stream Media.

FORWARD!

Because Bundy supporters aren’t doing a smokescreen campaign to re-elect Obama?

memo to Ted O'Baxter - Bundy is "breaking" peasant law.

I've lost interest in The Royals squealing about peasants breaking "peasant law".

Have a nice cup of STFU, Ted.

Bill is an arrogant prick who thinks he is always right. He doesn't like patriotic conservatives who expose him as the charlatan he really is. Bill loves to portray conservatives who are willing to take a stand as unreasonable. That's because Bill won't stand for anything unless it is poll tested first.

“Typical Ted Baxter.”

My primary question is when is he moving? Next question: to CNN or MSNBC?

I don’t bother to watch him anymore.

OWS was a re-election campaign for Obama, moving the blame of the recession from the White House to Wall Street.

The OWS founder David Graeber said, “I’m personally convinced that if it were not for us, we might well have President Romney.” http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2013-09-12/occupy-wall-street-founder-david-graeber-on-the-movements-future

OWS were a bunch of pampered, whiney freeloaders wanting the Fed Gov to give them “other people’s stuff”. The Bundy crowd are independent, self sustaining Americans that understand the definition of freedom!

O Reilly was on radio also..as for fox being just cable..it is also on satellite so it is on a air broadcast media...

but consider, let say because he is a global warming denier he is prohibited from any over the broadcast because it public air waves.

The point being the metaphor for free speech “ The Public Square” got it name because it use to be in the public square or property..ie on public land..

Look up the wiki on “Common Land” and “Enclosures” in English law....this stuff has been fight for 500 years.

A common right to graze livestock on common land is long acknowledged.

The act of taking that common right is called enclosure...

In effect BLM is in the process of enclosing 80+% of all the land in the state of Nevada

Bill O'Reilly and Glen Beck are f...ing idiots on this...
