    Is the “Occupy Wall Street” movement anti-Semitic? Signs indicating that have surfaced. Yet when CBS 2′s Tony Aiello surveyed the situation Tuesday he found conflicting signs of both anti-Semitism and Jewish support. In the half-acre park occupied by the protestors you had to look close, but it’s there – the words “Israel evil,” literature calling the establishment of Israel “a profound injustice,” and an invitation to a massive pro-Palestine march planned for next year. And then there was an “Occupy Wall Street” supporter who wouldn’t give his name, but claimed to teach at the City University of New York. “Oh,...

    The Blaze has covered several instances of anti-Semitism emanating from the Occupy Wall St. movement (despite the organizers’ attempts to trivialize it). And now, the group over at Whyoccupy.com has posted a powerful new web ad from the Emergency Committee for Israel, wondering why, despite the anti-Semitism, so many liberal politicians have come out in support of the movement. “Why are our leaders turning a blind eye to anti-Semitic, anti-Israel attacks?” it asks:
  • Occupy Wall Street leader excludes white ally to gain union support

    The Daily Caller ^ | 10/18/2011 | Matthew Boyle
    A white progressive who organized Occupy Wall Street excluded white allies from a critical meeting with New York’s Local 1199 union, which has since thrown its enormous resources behind the media-magnified protest. The local, which has up to 350,000 members, is part of the Service Employees Union International (SEIU). It invited the one of the leading OWS organizers to a Sept. 30 meeting after the organizers sought its support. The protester invited to the Sept. 30 meeting was Jesse Myerson, a white male who describes himself as an “independent journalist and activist.” In an email to the other organizers, he...

    Wall Street protesters in Zuccotti Park battened down the hatches yesterday as the early October snow turned their tents into igloos, but the close quarters also made easy pickings for one predator. A sex fiend barged into a woman’s tent and sexually assaulted her at around 6 a.m., said protesters, who chased him from the park.

    In the millions of pixels devoted to the radical Occupy Wall Streeters, virtually nothing has been said about its anti-Semitic elements. The conservative Emergency Committee for Israel is out with an eye-popping ad: A growing number of Israelis and foreign Jewish groups are expressing concern over the anti-Semitic flavor of some of the “Occupy Wall St.” economic protests in the US. . . . In Los Angeles, California, protester Patricia McAllister, who identified herself as an employee of the Los Angeles Unified School District (we can only hope she is not an educator), had this to say: “I think that...

    Los Angeles school officials say a substitute teacher has lost her job after making anti-Semitic comments during an interview. In a statement Tuesday, schools Superintendent John Deasy condemned remarks made by Patricia McAllister during a protest rally last week. In an Oct. 12 interview with Reason.com at a Los Angeles rally, McAllister said "Zionist Jews and the Federal Reserve" need to be run out of this country.

    DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The Occupy LA movement grew by the thousands Wednesday as unionized workers, caregivers and their patients joined the call for an end to corporate greed and Congress to put Americans back to work. The demonstrators held large signs, chanted loudly and blew whistles as they marched through the streets of downtown Los Angeles to the steps of City Hall. Organized by the Service Employees International Union, the demonstration was in support of President Barack Obama's American Jobs Act....

    A lawyer linked through the Council on American Islamic Relations [CAIR] to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood has been identified as the driving force behind the Occupy Orlando protests that have been staged in Johnson Park, according to a video report from Tom Trento of the Florida Security Council and The United West. "You're not going to believe ... the evidence ... that links this movement with a key Muslim individual who's associated with CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood," Trento explains on the video. "This individual has assumed a leadership [role] if [he is] not the leader of this movement...

    TV star and wanna-be pol Alec Baldwin took some heat Wednesday for joining the anti-Wall Street protesters even though he is a television face of Capital One Bank. Baldwin visited the Occupy Wall Street encampment at Zuccotti Park late Wednesday night, spending about two hours chatting with the protesters. According to online videos, he spent much of it being hounded by Ron Paul fans who were annoyed he wouldn't agree the Federal Reserve should be "ended." They were also peeved he refused to endorse the Republican Texas congressman. "I want your lips to support Ron Paul," Baldwin was told by...

    Source: ABC Reporter’s Life Allegedly Threatened at Occupy Oakland; ‘We Shoot White Bitches Like You Around Here’ Early yesterday morning, we received a tip from a reader in the San Francisco East Bay area who informed us that a local reporter’s life had been threatened by an activist at the Occupy Oakland demonstration. Our source, who is fearful of reprisal and has requested anonymity, says that KGO-TV’s Amy Hollyfield was accosted by a man who threatened her and used a racial slur: “We shoot white bitches like you around here.” According to our source, the Oakland Police Department was apparently...

    Townhall ^ | October 20, 2011 | Kate Hicks, Web Editor
    Did you get raped at Occupy Baltimore? Well, call the police if you must, but do you really want to be the one putting a damper on our good ol' fashioned protest? So seems to be the sentiment behind Occupy Baltimore's "Security Statement." The document touts the protest's plan for how to deal with sexual assault, and it's getting attention for lines like this: Though we do not encourage the involvement of the police in our community, the survivor has every right, and the support of Occupy Baltimore, to report the abuse to the appropriate law enforcement. Granted, while the...

    The Occupy Wall Street movement has spread from big cities to small towns, mobilizing a diverse group of people from young workers to grandmothers. Even “The New Yorker” has taken note, with a cover this week that portrays a group of “protestors” who have occupied Wall Street since its inception–and who would like to keep it that way. Take a look here.  Meanwhile unions and union members around the country are throwing their support to the movement that is demanding Wall Street be held accountable, that financial institutions invest some of the trillions in profits they are sitting on into job creation...

    They say one can tell a lot about people by the company they keep. If that adage is true, what does the Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR) endorsement of Occupy Wall Street — and the organization’s choice to conduct Friday “Jummah” prayers in Zuccotti Park — tell us about both CAIR, and, the Occupy protesters?An official invitation issued by CAIR’s New York chapter tells members to show “solidarity” with “the 99%” by attending Friday prayers in Zuccotti Park at 1:00pm. CAIR’s stated goal in hosting the prayer service at OWS is to “expand the role of New York Muslims in the...

    “This has been a nightmare,” said Brian Summers, who lives near Zuccotti Park. Summers said those trying to force corporations to become better corporate citizens should learn to be better citizens themselves. “It makes us feel horrible. We work down here, we live down here,” said Summers. Drums are played each and every day. The noise registers as 117 on a decibel meter. According to the federal government, regular exposure to 110 decibels can lead to permanent hearing loss. From blocks away, it might not be physically harmful, but neighbors say it's damaging lives. “We support the message, and a...

    Efforts by the Occupy Baltimore protest group to evolve into a self-contained, self-governing community have erupted into controversy with the distribution of a pamphlet that victim advocates and health workers fear discourages victims of sexual assaults from contacting police. The pamphlet says that members of the protest group who believe they are victims or who suspect sexual abuse "are encouraged to immediately report the incident to the Security Committee," which will investigate and "supply the abuser with counseling resources." ... the heads of three rape crisis centers and a nurse who runs the forensic division at Mercy Medical Center called...

    Radical anti-American billionaire George Soros is a major backer of a left-wing group that is funneling money to the Occupy Wall Street movement. The nonprofit organization at the receiving end of Soros’ largesse, Alliance for Global Justice, is managing donations benefiting the communists, socialists, anarchists and hippies now occupying Zuccotti Park in lower Manhattan. As of Oct. 19, OWS had taken in a grand total of $435,000 from all sources, including donations made by individuals online and in person, according to reports....Alliance for Global Justice is a “fiscal sponsor,” which means that it serves as a financial clearinghouse for radical...

    The city and its police have spent more than $500,000 so far keeping an eye on the Occupy Vancouver movement, but the mayor says the daily cost has drastically decreased. Since the sit-in began at the Vancouver Art Gallery on Saturday, the Vancouver Police Department has spent an extra $390,000, plus $50,000 to put an RCMP tactical unit on standby Saturday. The city says the protest has cost it $87,000 so far, but as Occupy continues to be peaceful, the price tag has been reduced to less than $1,000 per day.

    "These protesters are destroying our neighborhood. This 'good neighbor' policy? Good neighbors pay rent!" A smattering of applause was swallowed by a chorus of boos after 26-year-old Frank Calvosa spoke at last night's CB 1 Quality of Life Committee meeting. Calvosa was one of around ten people who spoke condemning Occupy Wall Street's presence in Lower Manhattan, and they were outnumbered. Resident Garrett McConnell took the mic shortly after: "Who are these people who live in Manhattan expecting peace and quiet? New York is loud, dirty, and fabulous!" "Hipster Cop" was MIA, but over a hundred people, including Councilmember Margaret...
