If you’re like little Billy here, you get confused when people shouting “this is what democracy looks like” are attempting to violate the rights of others. Join Billy as he takes a magical journey to see what democracy really means in America today with funderful examples from both the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street!
Seriously though, the hypocrisy being displayed by the media in comparing the permit lovin’ actions of the Tea Party last year to this dangerous insanity is almost twitch-inducing enough to make you gag. There’s plenty of stories out there to source to the above but a really good round up of Occupy Wall street unrest and disregard for safety or sanity can be found at Big Government. As of yesterday they’re up to 151 incidents.
Update: Looks like the leaders of OWS are angling to get fat from the donations. It’s a testament to the gap between what people, even those at these things, think is going on versus reality.
Update II: Here’s a good reminder that trying to appease unreasonable people doesn’t work.
Update III: Atlas Shrugs links to some video of how peaceful OWS is. Bloodthirsty Liberal finds it interesting where some of the OWS coverage is coming from. Right Wing Nut House examines some recent developments in Oakland. Sister Toldjah looks at the Dems history on civil rights. Stop the ACLU quotes the NYPD on arrests. At the The TYGRRRR Express, more OWS violence. Vodkapundit links to some… er, enlightening video. Michelle Malkin has more wackyness roundup.
