  • “Occupy the RNC” Instructional Video Advises Firebombing Police Officers

    07/12/2012 6:16:06 PM PDT · by massmike · 26 replies
    “ResistRNC,” a five day Occupy protest of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida this August, has some chilling new videos posted on their website that encourages horrific protestor violence towards police. In a statement at the top of the action webpage, resistRNC says, “if you are looking for ideas to help you with your action planning, here are some helpful videos!” In one of ResistRNC’s “helpful videos,” a young man is seen lighting a Molotov cocktail on fire, and then hurling the firebomb towards a group of police. The video is actually a mashup of a Jay-Z and Kanye...

How about the Department try something novel and get the media to cover what the protestors and anarchists are planning and maybe get the public overwhelmingly on...

    How Occupy Wall Street plans to spring back to actionBy Gloria Goodale | Christian Science Monitor – 23 hrs ago **SNIP** Dubbed National Occupy Washington (NOW), the event began with a march on the Environmental Protection Agency – accompanied by a brace of alpacas, a large polar bear, and a even larger blow-up of planet Earth. **SNIP** “We are preparing to give people the skills and training they need for longer and more powerful involvement,” he says, adding, “the tents were just a tactic, not the purpose of this movement.”

The event will be held March 3rd, and is co-sponsored by The Sanctuary For Independent Media and the Albany Social Justice Center. It is described as, “A book event and multi-generational dialog to celebrate U.S. political prisoner David Gilbert’s new memoir, “Love and Struggle.” Gilbert is currently serving time in the Auburn Correctional Facility and is described as “an American radical leftist organizer and activist.” He was imprisoned for his role in the Brinks Robbery of 1981, a botched effort that led to the...

  • Occupy Wall Street protesters throw condoms, drown out speakers at Rhode Island pro-life rally

    PROVIDENCE, RI, January 30, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – Demonstrators from the Occupy Wall Street movement threw condoms on Catholic schoolgirls, refused to allow a Catholic priest to give a closing prayer, and shouted down a pro-life speaker at a Rhode Island right to life rally on Thursday, according to its organizer. The event marked the third time protesters associated with the movement have disrupted a pro-life meeting in a week. About two-dozen members of Occupy Providence hiked from Burnside Park to the 39th Annual Pro-Life State House Rally organized by the Rhode Island State Right to Life Committee on Thursday. The...

    BOISE -- With a bill aimed at getting rid of the Occupy Boise encampment making its way through the Idaho Legislature, new pictures of people identified as Occupy members may not do much to help their cause. The pictures don't reveal any crimes, rather the Department of Administration says they are violations of the good neighbor policy, meaning it shows Occupy members taking things and using things they shouldn't. Since Occupy Boise set up camp in early November, the Director of the Department of Administration, Teresa Luna, says they have dealt with vandalism, violence, trespassing and theft. Earlier this month,...

    The news spotlight has moved elsewhere, but Oakland continues to shell out hundreds of thousands of dollars a month for the Occupy protests. Every week for the past month, more than 100 cops, or roughly one-fifth of the city's patrol force, are called in to work the Saturday night Occupy demonstration held downtown. Estimated cost: about $50,000 a week. City officials now estimate their overall Occupy tab is up to $3 million and counting - this at a time when up to 400 city workers will likely be laid off Feb. 1 for lack of money.

    Thousands of Occupy protesters from across the country are expected to converge Tuesday on Capitol Hill to take their message to the halls of Congress, in what some observers say is the movement’s overdue moment to engage the American political system. Protesters already have set up camps in public spaces, taken over foreclosed homes and shut down key shipping ports, but for the most part they have shunned the political system, viewing it as beyond salvation. The congressional protest – which falls on the movement's four-month mark and the beginning of a new session of Congress – appears to represent...

    In the face of mounting charges of anti-Semitism at Occupy sites nationwide, several so-called Jewish groups have been attempting to spin the protest movement as Jew-friendly, as even representing Jewish ideals. Most prominent among those groups is the Jewish Funds for Justice, or JFFJ, which is funded by billionaire George Soros. A slew of other Soros-funded progressive groups are also behind the drive to deny Occupy contains significant anti-Semitic elements. KleinOnline found JFFJ is led by individuals associated with communist and socialist groups; the children of Soviet spies; and a U.S. socialist organization that seeks to infiltrate the Democratic Party....

    In a move that infuriated some Occupy Boston protesters, Boston police on Tuesday arrested an Occupy Boston protester after she allegedly sold $20 worth of prescription drugs to undercover police. Martina “Mama” Martin was taken into custody near the tent that supplies clothes to the protesters, who have been living in a tent city in Dewey Square since last month. In a report, police said they had seen an increase in illegal drug activity in the downtown area, which they attributed to the arrival of the Occupy Boston encampment. Acting on a tip that a man and woman inside the...

Police checked the area and found the girl. During an interview, she revealed that she had...

    Council officials in Glasgow will go to court today in a bid to evict anti-capitalist protesters from the city centre. The council wants them removed from George Square before ceremonies to mark Armistice Day on the 11th November, Remembrance Sunday on the 13th and the switch-on if the city's Christmas lights a week later. If an eviction order is granted at a court hearing, Sheriff's Officers will be sent in to clear the square of the "Occupy Glasgow" protesters, unless they agree to leave as instructed. The Glasgow protest mirrors demonstrations outside St Paul's Cathedral in London, St Andrew's Square...

    President Obama has been no stranger to the Occupy Wall Street crowd and in fact has gone out of his way to encourage the violent, vile, unsanitary, vitriolic and greedy movement. But, this week Obama took it to a whole new level, dedicating half of his weekly address to vilifying the "top 1 percent," while claiming the middle class has been losing ground as "the rich become richer." His message this week is purely "spread the wealth around." Like I've said before, if Obama is going to continue to support the OWS crowd, he better be willing to accept the...

    Via Gateway Pundit: Today the American Nazi Party released a statement in support of Occupy Wall Street movement. Should we really be surprised? Jew-hatred is going mainstream, egged on by the OWS movement. Few white people, even if they harbor racist sentiments would care to go on camera and advocate shipping blacks back to Africa. But here is a self described LA school employee who advocates running Jews out of the country. I found another link to an American Nazi Party affiliate: "WhiteHonor" explaining why Nazis and Communists should band together to Occupy Wall Street. Many racialists are unsure about,...

    The Silent Majority ^ | 10-18-11 | J.D. Longstreet
    The GOP has a wonderful tool to use in defeating Obama in 2012. It is the unruly crowd called the Occupy Wall Street Movement. It is a gift to the GOP on a silver platter… if they have the common sense to use it. Obama is creeping ever closer to supporting the out and out socialist/communist/ nazi/labor union movement. He can’t help himself. Obama and the modern Democratic Party are drawn to the unruly rabble as moths to a flame. Why? They believe the anarchic socialist/communist philosophy espoused by the raucous rabble littering America’s streets with their socialist utopian ideology....

    Occupy Wall Street is one of the most egregiously immoral "movements" in the past several decades. Reports of rape, violence, public masturbation, and rabid antisemitism define OWS. These crimes and hatred are not isolated incidents, despite the lies that have been promoted in the Main Stream Media. To prove this point, I have compiled 40 examples in picture, video, and article form beneath. OWS and its supporters can deny the truth, but we (the true 99%) will not.

    Big Government has already established that Lisa Fithian is playing an integral part in the planning, organization,and execution of the nation-wide “Occupy” protests and other union demonstrations and “direct actions.” The Chicago Teachers’ Union has reported that Fithian trained its members, together with the Teamsters, for the Occupy Chiacgo protests. Evidence on the UAW website also shows that Fithian recenlty led members in a march to “close” a branch of designated villain, Bank of America. Fithian is also referred to as an “SEIU Commander” leading activists in a recent march on bankers in Boston. Now, Big Government’s continued investigation of...

    As “Occupy Wall Street” protests continue to gain steam and attract media attention, several videos of protesters spewing anti-Semitic language are sparking new concerns about the protesters and their messages. Yeshiva World News, an Orthodox Jewish news outlet, explained in an editorial Thursday that “many Jews” are feeling a bit uncomfortable with the growing protests because of hateful video footage claiming the U.S. economy is organized for the benefit of Jews. “The reasons for these ‘uncomfortable feelings’ don’t need to be elaborated on this page,” the editorial reads. “Suffice to say that Jews have been blamed for the world’s troubles...
