Hashtag Of The Entitlement Generation

It's no longer "just the banks".

Last night's scene at the Washington Convention Center where the Americans for Prosperity Foundation held its Ronald Reagan tribute dinner for the “Defending the American Dream Summit.”

Update - and another.

And more at Instapundit;

MORE: Ray Patnaude emails: “My wife and I were at the AFP dinner. Some info on the AFP member who was pushed down the stairs by the protestors… she is the second woman the police are helping up in the Daily Caller video. Her name is Dolores Broderson, age 78. She rode on a bus for 11 hours from Detroit to get there. She went to the emergency room with a bloody nose and bruises on her hand and leg.”

This has become nothing but a mob mentality movement.

Nice astroturf moment there, eh? Maybe five to ten guys doing the actual "work", maybe fifty more standing around out of nightstick range chanting nonsense, then fifty media wanker taking pictures and video.

You can't pay -all- the protesters, but you can pay two or three to scrape up five or ten excitable idiots to go wrestle with the cops. The rest just follow along to see the show. Like sheep.

Maybe if they started arresting the people PAYING for all this they'd make some headway.

Second video is a little more troubling, the brave protesters knocking older women down the stairs.

Definitely time to start in following that money. Most of it leads right back to the DNC, Barry needs to wear this big time.

Summer campaign season shaping up to be "come armed and dangerous".

Well, things are not going to get better. Mobs grow in size and strength unless they don't.

Posted by: Erik Larsen at November 5, 2011 1:30 PM

It appears that the 'restlessness' of the mob is increasing daily. Is this because of boredom? Or do the orgganizers want to keep the movement in the headlines? Or both? I predict that there will be overt violence-worse than that seen in Oakland earlier this week. And when this happens, Obama, Pelosi,J Jackson, Sharpton and the main stream media supporters will have themselves to blame 'when the chickens come home to roost'.

It's only a matter of time until there's a push back. Rabble like that can't start scratching a Mercedes without consequences. One possible scenario is, they'll start harassing some gangsters, and get lit up.

Almost identical to the neo-Marxist tactics used in Latin America, supported by Hugo Chavez of Venezuela et al.

Hate to say "I told you so" but I told you so. The "handwriting on the wall" as it were, was Honduras and the crisis generated by its former President -- Manuel Zelaya -- back in 2009 with the backing of Chavez and the "Bolivarian" revolution. That's when it became obvious that Marxist revolutions were taking a new tack in strategy:

1/ Legitimately-elected politicians encouraging or backing the Marxist protestors, usually culminating in violence (i.e. now pseudo-"legitimized" violence).
2/ The self-same politicians ignoring the established free democratic process to produce legitimate change.

U.S. President Barack Obama (and other politicians including some Canadians) is playing an almost identical role to Zelaya: pretending that he's part of the protest and he's not the ultimate governing authority in the U.S. -- playing a phantasmagorical role as if Obama were someone who is not even in Government.

Nope, U.S. President Barack Obama is just another simple protestor, joined with the "people's revolution".

They were picking on a black man in a Mercedes! He should have popped a cap in their asses, or at the very least come down with some bad futha fu*ka brotha’s and bust some cracker.

Just kidding, these white, guilt ridden little nobodies wouldn’t have touched that black man with a ten foot pole no matter how well dressed and representative of Wall Street he was. Just ask “The Buck Stops Here” Barry Obamba.

Wasn't it Nancy Pelosi that said that the Republicans wanted women to lie, dying, in the streets? I guess that Pelosi wants some of that action, since she supports the protesters....

And that malignant piece of human sewage currently soiling the Whitehouse with his wretched existence eggs them on. Bad enough to have an incompetent president, but worse to have an evil one.

Posted by: Peter at November 5, 2011 3:06 PM

er, troll, that was the Democrats of the day who shot the civil rights protesters (much as their fore-fathers had earlier lobbied to keep slavery alive), and the news of the day used incendiary explosives to fake vehicle safety stories after the safety was improved by manufacturers so that they could sell their products.

Best urge the protesters not to use any oil or metal products, otherwise they're a big part of the problem (you know, the whole "using goods without producing anything"). The company I work for produces goods that others want, the others buy the goods from us and I get paid from the proceeds. I want the goods others produce. I use what I am paid to buy them those goods. Sure there are middlemen who make a profit from the transactions, I don't directly know any coffee growers so I couldn't otherwise buy coffee. I also didn't have enough saved to buy my house, but I will have enough someday so I borrowed the money to do so and am slowly paying it back. Systems don't spontaneously generate, they evolve over time. Sometimes they fail catastrophically (see the fall of the Berlin wall). All systems can use improvement, including ours, but these "protesters" don't strike me as being competent to clean up after their dogs let alone help rewire a system that is largely driven by personal choice. Anyone who thinks that governmental involvement is a solution rather than the problem really needs to read some Thomas Sowell or Walter Williams.

Posted by: C_Miner at November 5, 2011 3:38 PM

Wow. Kind of reminds me of the thugs I grew up with who would get drunk at house parties, go to the local bar, and pick fights with drunken (uncoordinated) natives in town for a Saturday night of drinking. That is until the day they were beating the crap out of a couple of drunken bucks and a native woman decided to retrieve her handgun from the vehicle glove box...

Hilarity, and a fitting end, ensued.

For those who didn't face their come-uppance, I guess they went on to become parents of the 99%.

That violent mob in the video should have been night-sticked the moment they showed. That reporter from the Daily Caller had more courage than all those thugs together.

Interesting to see the threating comments posted here from - who was it - "night crawler?" And his comrades. Nothing like posting anonymous threats you cowards.

Those mindless social beggars are going to eventually piss off the wrong people and some of them may get shot.

Someone alluded to gangsters … Consider that drug dealers and pimps drive nice cars and will not tolerate anyone coming near them.

I wait with bated breath for something like this to happen. It is obvious that the fagots we now have as police aren't going to deal with it. I think all the good cops and fireman died at the 9-11 Islamic attack.

It's basically an alliance of people who take from the government - public service unions, lefty politicians, slackers, students and anybody looking for a handout. They want big government. The takers versus the makers.
It's laughable to listen to ignorant fools claim it's about justice or anything lofty.

Hey nightmare - I'll take you up on total deregulation - - so long as I can sue the ass off anyone who knowingly cheats or endangers me - or as proper commonlaw dictates, defend my person and property as the situation warrants.

The reason things in North America are so frigged up right now is the political elite have screwed up the law courts and subjected us to their dystopian statute laws (selective regulation and tort law).

It's enough to make a vulture retch, I mean "We are the 99%"?

If they were the 99% there wouldn't BE a United States of America, there would be a Third World country with a GDP roughly equivalent to Malawi's - probably called The People's Republic of Occupied Native Lands or something equally correct.

Yesterday I was visiting my 93 year old aunt in a nursing home. She had the CBS Evening News on the tube. There was a nice long segment about how the violence at the Occupy events was very isolated and only a tiny minority of participants were on the "fringe". I would bet my 401k that CBS didn't give the same consideration to the Tea Parties.

The banks, the plight of the poor - a childishly transparent smokescreen, a microscopic veneer fabricated to draw in respectable citizens the career activists can point to and say "See? It's not just we useless no-lobes welfare bums!"

Here's the results of 15 seconds of online research about our own "evil" Canadian banks:

If any Occupy protester can't provide tangible proof of their own personal efforts and expenditures in aid of the poor, we need to stuff the bullhorns right back down their throats. And I do mean literally.

Posted by: Michael H Anderson at November 5, 2011 7:58 PM

It was never just about the banks...these people will forever want 'more'. What's terrifying is that they really are a grassroots movement of people who don't think. They just feel their (our) way to financial destruction.

Stand in front of cars, risk getting run over. I'm not sure I'd be able to restrain myself. (I would think backing up some and then proceeding at about 10 or 15 km/h would do the trick. Give the hippies time to scamper.)

Speaking of violence, does anyone else think this troll might be a serial killer?

Hey "notkate" or whatever clever moniker you post under, has anonymous been successful at bringing down Fox News yet?
They said they would do it on Nov 5, said they where legion or some other contention commonly used by gansta wanna-bes.

This is all going toward a very ugly place really fast. People in Western countries are going to start getting shot...

Either because the 99% of the 99% have decided they've had enough of this s**t and open fire, or the mob ultimately wins, and goes PolPot on the working stiffs trying to keep it all together.

As a matter of fact, no: violence has never been started by "right-wing instigators", and the day I believe an accusation like that I'll voluntarily enter a mental institute. I mean, how perfectly circular can an argument get?

"Any time violence erupts in a left-wing mob, it was caused by 'right-wing instigators'! Woooooooooo!!!

Funny how when the useful idiots show up to push people around they are surprised when people push back. And when they get a taste of their own medicine they go from aggressor to "victim" in the blink of an eye. If you start pushing old ladies down steps and start blocking traffic you might find yourself punched in the head or run over. The leftists morons are out in force and showing their true colours. Cowardly mobs who individually don't have the stones to face anyone one on one. Get them in a group and they will swarm anyone they see as an enemy and attack them. They think they have a right to hurt those who disagree with them. Well they had better watch out because turnabout is fair play. Hit me and I will hit you back.
