Video: Occupy Protesters Arrested at Michele Bachmann’s Campaign HQ By Rachel Rose Hartman

URBANDALE, Iowa--Some Occupy protesters created a scene at Michele Bachmann's Iowa campaign headquarters Saturday afternoon before the Minnesota congresswoman's arrival, resulting in the arrest of a number of individuals, at least two of whom were under the age of 18, for trespassing. All were taken away in police vehicles.

The mother of a 16 year-old girl named Heather shouted at police for information about where her daughter had been taken.

"You can't deny me where they're taking my daughter," she yelled in the parking area outside Bachmann's office. Protesters congregated there with signs, musical instruments and even some costumes as part of the "Occupy the Caucuses" movement.

"I'm 14," one girl said as she was handcuffed beside a police car. "Why were you arrested?" someone shouted. "Because I wanted to speak to her," the girl said.

Alas our Soviet-era indoctrinated educational system with minor pupils following their bearded and ear-ringed Marxists.

The parents of the minors should be charged with neglect. Hey kids run along and break the law.

Mom, there’s room for you in the paddy wagon, too.

The time to worry about where your daughter was heading was BEFORE she got hauled away, not after.

"You can't deny me where they're taking my daughter,"

I think they hauled the kid over to DHS to find her a good foster family.

"She is no longer relevant."

You wish!!! You're quite the little sniper, ain'tcha!!!

What? Are you defending the Occupiers/Squatters the the lefty media is infatuated with because they want to wipe the Tea Party out of America's mind after the last landslide election that went so against them???

Our Michelle has done nothing for you to disrespect the founder and leader of the congressional Tea Party Caucus. Did she personally offend you or something? Are you feeling alright? Are you going to be this way all through the new year???

Please don't become VicVicious, instead of VicVega, ok? It's so unbecoming for such an otherwise nice poster.

From the article:
"I'm 14," one girl said as she was handcuffed beside a police car. "Why were you arrested?" someone shouted. "Because I wanted to speak to her," the girl said.
Somehow I see a Caterpillar D9R in this foolish girl's future. Leastwise that's how mommy is raising her...

She blew it. Jumped the shark. Can't even get 10 people to show up at her rallies. ME, ME, ME, I,I,I Michele should have listened to the internal polls and not her ego when she decided to jump in.

Like the Vic Vicious name.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL!!
