Cain rails against Wall Street protesters
AP/AJC ^ | 10/5/11 | TAMARA LUSH

Posted on 10/05/2011 5:52:58 PM PDT by Kartographer

Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain on Wednesday called the Occupy Wall Street protesters anti-American and anti-capitalistic.

"Don't be jealous, don't be envious," Cain said as he signed copies of his memoir. "I don't have much patience for someone who does not want to achieve their American dream the old-fashioned way."

More than 400 people attended the event. The former head of Godfather's Pizza pulled up in front of the Barnes & Noble bookstore in a black luxury bus, and he entered the store to cheers and applause.

Spot on. Can you imagine if they actually put in the effort into starting a business as they do protesting, they would be an ‘evil rich corporation’ too.

"I'm just trying to occupy the White House," Romney said.

What a complete douche. That is exactly the wrong kind of mentality We need.

Reagan was never afraid to call out the CPUSA and their stooges in the "Democrat" party.

Cain needs to follow suit.

Unlike the gutless wonders that comprise the GOP "Leadership" and are afraid of being accused of McCarthyism, lest they lose their pass to all of the freebies in DC, Cain is a self made man with common sense and needs to

START NAMING NAMES AND DESTROY THE AMERICAN COMMUNIST MOVEMENT.

Of course he’s right; it makes about as much sense to blame job providers for unemployment as it does to blame farmers for hunger.

Not that the dimwitted 0ccupants wouldn’t do that, too, if their puppeteers told them to....

EXACTLY! We already have someone who is simply "occupying" the White House. We need a damn leader! We need an America-loving patriot!

Actually,I think the one from Mittens that tops that statement is when he was asked why none of his sons had ever joined the military and served their country. His disgusting reply was that his sons were serving their country by helping him to become president. What a weasel :-(

How dare Cain mention the evil, capitalistic word “work” to these worthless pieces of er I mean wonderful Americans. Their whole lives have been spent avoiding work, and now the evil Cain wants them to work for a living? I’m telling you it’s just not fair to the poor dears. (smirk)

Romney is SICK, talk about Zero being the Messiah. Romney thinks he is. Disgusting statements.

I think his religion has gotten to him, he is supposed to wait until he dies to become a GOD, from what I hear.

The truth is the truth... and no amount of leftist revisionist history will change that. communists are the enemy of Liberty... and the pendulum is swinging back to the right.

I continue to Pray you are correct in saying the pendulum is swinging to the right again. There are very few of us left who remember McCarthy and the truth of it, ask the young, (i.e. the Occupy filth), they wouldn't know who you were talking about.

I think this group must be the spawn or grand-spawn of the Hippie/flower children, raised by them which would explain their attitude and appearance.

From this group of OCCUPY trash, you will see in another 20 yrs., the next batch of filthy idiots protesting something else. What a shame so much good air is wasted on the likes of these scum.

Taken out of context, his words do seem cruel. Taken in context though, directed at the 99er occupy wall st crowd, they’re resonating.

The rest of society is at the end of their rope with the “give us more” crowd. We’re tired of busting our rear ends and then hear these whiners complain how unfair it is to work, and pay for school, and take responsibility for their own lives.

We’re not your effing parents.
