So Instapundit has this one line link to 'DAILY KOS: Proof the Teabaggers are racist, violent, and disgusting' and I head over there to see the 'proof.'
The article is -- I think -- an attempt at humor slandering the Tea Party with Occupy Mob actions. It's actually the Occupy Mob that is racist, violent and disgusting. It's a roundup of links to Occupy mob violence, racism. crminal behaviour, pervasive, blatant anti-semetism. Change the word 'teabagger' to 'Occupy Mob' in that article and you perfectly describe the mob, (The lead facts in the article include that the Occupy Mob is endorsed by the American Nazi Party and the Communist Party.) Kos links to a small fraction of the disorderly violent behaviour. (My favorites: ‘We Shoot White Bitches Like You Around Here’ threatening an ABC report's life, and watch this video for complaints about graffiti, vandalism, fighting, drugs, public urination, sex in public, sanitation and rats):
The ... violence has gotten out of control. We've called them "political terrorists" for some time now, but I think it's time to just refer to them as "terrorists". After all, some of their leaders are being investigated for terrorism. They claim an area for themselves ..., refuse to pay for a permit, threaten to kill reporters, block traffic, attack the police, and conspire to kill police. Does the first amendment nullify all other laws? WTF? Rightfully, the NYPD plans to sue [them] as a whole for their injuries from now on.When you click the links, you find out that all the links are not about the Tea Party, but about the Occupy Mob. So what's going on? Is this some sick joke?
Violence, violence, violence, violence, violence and I could go on but you get the point. There are over 100 such unique (unrelated, I'm sure) incidents involving upwards of 1000 arrests. We are being terrorized by [them].
My take on it is as follows: Kos knows the Occupy Your Street Mob is a violent, racist mob, and no matter how egregious, how outrageous, how criminal their behaviour is, the media will give them a pass, because their 'stated goal is social justice.' It's Obama 2008 all over gain. Lame stream media wants big government, they want wealth redistribution, socialism and they don't care how it happens. Hand the truth to the media on a silver platter, they won't do anything about it, if it doesn't fit their agenda.
Want more proof? "Nothing undermines [The Occupy Mob's] positions and philosophies so thoroughly as what they actually do and say." What a protestor has to say:
“It’s weird protesting on Bay Street. You get there at 9 a.m. and the rich bankers who you want to hurl insults at and change their worldview have been at work for two hours already. And then when it’s time to go, they’re still there. I guess that’s why they call them the one per cent. I mean, who wants to work those kinds of hours? That’s the power of greed.” – Jeremy, 38The lame stream media has incredible power -- just look at the impact of headlines and snippets from 'The Onion'. There are websites dedicated to how fake Onion stories are taken seriously. The latest is this story from The Onion that:
wrote a tongue-in-cheek story that all styles of parenting cause children to grow up into 'profoundly unhappy adults,' based on a study credited to the California Parenting Institute of Santa Rosa." We even had parent educators who work here say, "When did we do a study?" said Wendy Hilberman, director of marketing and development for CPI.Most people don't read past the headline, they glance at the snippet and register it as fact. The same happened to me at first, when I first read the Daily Kos 'humor' piece which used Occupy Mob links to falsely blame the Tea Party. Then I clicked a link. How many do that? Not many, I guess, from looking at the outlinks from this blog.
Kos knows the media will never hold liberals accountable, he proudly proclaims the Occupy Mob a disaster and thumbs his nose at the entire world.
Stop the world, I want to get off.
MORE: From Gringo in the comments:
Have you read the comments to the Kos article? They are almost uniformly negative. "Not funny" was a common response. The people who comment in Kos are pretty much ... supporters of the OWS crowd.
The comments are negative because the article accurately points out that what the lefties falsely accused the Tea Party of doing, the OWS crowd is doing in spades. The comments are negative because the Kos lefties do not like being laughed at, which is what is most likely the intent of the article."
