Since it took Democrat Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi less than 24 hours to call out Republicans regarding the attempted assassination of their own members by a hard left Bernie Sanders ideologue, let’s take the phony kumbaya gloves off. It has been Dems, beginning with their 2011 no apologies embrace of an oft times destructive, dangerous, felonious Occupy Wall Street movement, that began normalizing, even glorifying political violence.
Here are what some of the highest ranking party leaders had to say around the fall of 2011. We’ll follow their glowing comments with the harsh realities created by the Occupiers’ filth, property destruction, threats, assaults and attacks on police officers.
Talking OWS President Obama opined, “The most important thing we can do right now is those of us in leadership letting people know that we understand their struggles and we are on their side.”
Here’s a video of one of an Occupier struggling all right. But he’s struggling to defecate on the side of a police car. We can bet for sure nobody in the Democrat leadership would happily join this disgusting cretin on his side of that cruiser.
Sen. Chuck Schumer predicted, “Occupy Wall Street has resonance far beyond the protests…”.
It certainly did Chuckie. Even early on, the cost to cities whose budgets could least afford it, went well over $10 million. And that’s just in police overtime costs. Shortly there after the figure quickly rose to over $13 million. And these numbers don’t include the loss of income to taxpayers blocked from going to work, or businesses destroyed by vandalism.
Within a month of Occupy Wall Street’s October debut in NYC, Democrat Congressman Steve Israel, the fundraising head of the powerful Democrat National Campaign Committee put out this call to get 100,000 signees on his petition:
Goal: 100,000 Strong Standing with Occupy Wall Street
“Out-of-touch Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor said he is “increasingly concerned by the growing mobs” protesting on Wall Street and across the country. Mobs?”
Yes Steve, there were “Mobs” and plenty of them. As you were cheerleading in “out of touch” DC and clamoring for 100,000 signatures, they were creating havoc and hardships all across the country. As of May, 2013, “The website OccupyArrests.com has tracked 7,736 in 122 cities nationwide.
Then there’s House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi slobbering, “God bless them for their spontaneity.” “It’s young, it’s spontaneous, it’s focused and it’s going to be effective.”Why sure Nan. What could be better for getting someone, or someone else’s blood flowing, than impromptu rioting by riled up youngsters. In a less than a 8 month period there were around 50 reports of serious lawbreaking including but not limited to rape, creating homemade incendiary/explosive devices, smashing storefront windows, concealing unlicensed handguns, lewd behavior, countless assaults, and Occupiers planning to bomb a bridge.
For the record, Ms. Pelosi, last week we had an Occupy guy who was neither young or spontaneous. He was, however extremely “focused”….on killing Republicans. But for the grace of God and courageous Capitol Hill Police officers this evil spawn of Bernie Sanders would have been a very “effective”…. assassin.
In 2011, James Hodgkinson was just another OWS thug in waiting, being encouraged by leading Democrats who, beginning in the fall of that year, embraced his ilk, and lit the fuse for normalizing political violence.
