Occupy DC flies al-Qaeda, Hamas and Hezbollah flags
The Washington Times (Inside the Ring) ^ | 21 Dec 2011 | Bill Gertz

INSIDE OCCUPY D.C.

People monitoring the Occupy D.C. movement tell Inside the Ring that the two encampments are fast becoming health hazards. Numerous protesters also recently were sickened with unusual respiratory illnesses.

The major emerging problem for the leftists camped out in tents at McPherson Square and Freedom Plaza is rats. The rodents appear to be moving into the area by the hundreds, and their numbers are increasing daily.

The McPherson camp appears be where more radical leftists are based. An observer familiar with the McPherson camp said one distinctive smell coming from the park area is that of methamphetamine being smoked.

Among the flags being flown by some protesters are those from the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas, the Iranian-backed Hezbollah and al Qaeda.

A tiny blurb at the bottom of the page.

No photos or videos.

Great.

The Washington Times really sticking their neck out here.

You know what? I think Dick Obama should get into the Christmas spirit and spend a week camped out with the DC occupy people to show his solidarity. Just think of all the positive PR this would give the MSM to toss around in their end-of-the-year analyses. He could compare these people to Mary and Joseph who could find no room in the inn and had to sleep in the stable with the animals. Wow! What a great story this would make. WaPo? Are you listening? Jump on this before the NYT can.

This post is useless without pictures.

Might as well say that right-wingers are counter protesting in Klansman garb. The claim is just as credible.

Gertz should have made sure there were proof pictures before writing the column with no photos attached.

Sad, very sad. This 99% cause to re-elect Obama will not work. Kinda like Obama’s jobs bill that will give us no new jobs. But, will the American people get it? Or will they be swayed by fancy words?

This is the new USSA-United Socialist States of AmeriKa.... Its here and now Obummers world. Starting at a downtown street corner near you.

Can’t wait for the Summer of 2012 riots. Will they occur you bet at a GOP convention site... Bought and paid for by George Soro’s and his J-Street crowd of leftists.

The sheeple are herded by partisan media shills. The more lies they swallow, the more dependent they become on the partisan media shills.

But regardless...

Merry Christmas!

These are the sort of people that will be crying and wandering around aimlessly when really tough economic times hit. They won’t know how to survive without handouts. Meanwhile those of us who’ve prepared ......

On a light note - for a grin, read Caine’s Pestilence

Let them swim home if they are ever released.

Maybe the rats are there to spread plague, and thereby do the world a service.

Having dealt with Gertz, I would take anything he says straight to the bank.

So would I, I believe him 100%. I’m just a little surprised, somebody dropped a ball, because he is operator savvy enough to understand he should not “out” the enemy flags without first securing media-potent video and photo evidence. Now we have his story, but we are the choir. To get his story to the MSM would have required photos or better, video, with a Breitbart type operation for effect. That’s why I think somebody dropped the ball. Gertz us usually more savvy. This is a waste of an opportunity to jam a little feedback at the MSM.

The WaTimes link takes me to this article, do you think the Gertz article got pulled? I’ll look more on the WTImes site:

Nope, can’t find this Gertz article at the WTimes site. Could they have pulled it, I wonder.

Inside the Ring generally doesn't run pictures. I wish they did run them.

Plenty of people have documented Hizbullah and Hamas flags at leftist events for years. I've seen them Only the Al Qaeda bit is remotely odd.

In so far as CAIR, a project of the Muslim Brotherhood, is involved in OWS, it seems to me the cynicism of some is based on ignorance.

How many cities are still having to put up with these morons? I thought they’d mostly dispersed.

Thanks for the kind words about my novel, Caine’s Pestilence. I'm glad you found it light and it brought a grin—just what I hoped to achieve. Guess even a blind squirrel finds a nut now and again. Still, with a lot at at stake in the 2012 election, I hope people take away some food for thought.
