SAN DIEGO (CBS) — A pair of Southland street cart vendors who were forced to shut down their businesses after “Occupy” protesters vandalized their carts are hoping to get some help from local residents.

KNX 1070’s Tom Reopelle reports a fundraiser in the Gas Lamp district in San Diego on Monday night is aimed at helping two vendors get back on their feet.

The coffee and hot dog carts were located in Civic Center Plaza, the same location as the Occupy San Diego protesters.

That group first settled in to the plaza Oct. 7 and set up a tent city which has since twice been taken down by police.

Coffee cart owner Linda Jenson and hot dog cart operators Letty and Pete Soto said they initially provided free food and drink to demonstrators, but when they stopped, the protesters became violent.

And according to one city councilman, bodily fluids were used in the attacks.

“Both carts have had items stolen, have had their covers vandalized with markings and graffiti, as well as one of the carts had urine and blood splattered on it,” said Councilman Carl DeMaio.

The damages will likely require at least a complete cleaning if not a replacement of the cart covers, DeMaio said.

In addition to the attacks, the vendors also said they recently received death threats.

Proceeds from the fundraiser will go directly to help the two business owners.

After a relatively peaceful start, the “Occupy” movement has sparked violent clashes with police in Oakland and recently saw protesters push an elderly woman down a flight of stairs in D.C.

    Where is the police? Those “Occupiers” have too much free time and nothing to “occupy” themselved with, so they commit crimes and hurt the same “little peolpe” whose interests they claim to protect. Arrest them, make them pay for the damages plus punitive damages. They have to be stopped before they destroy the country!

    1. Occupy This says:

      Were YOU there? You know this is a plant? Occupiers don’t need any one to make them look bad.

    2. Mitch0215 says:

      Of course you imply that the vendors themselves splattered blood and urine on their carts! I wasn’t there, I didn’t see it, but somehow I’d rather believe the article.

    3. DJH says:

      The occupiers already look bad – this is wholly indicative of the whiny, entitlement cowards who don’t care who has to sacrifice for them so long as they get what they want.
      They’ve shown their true colors time and again – this is only the latest and most egregious!

    4. Jcon says:

      I believe the story, I haven’t seen anything yet that makes the Occupy movement credible. In NYC they are defecating on the lawns of average citizens, raping, stealing, using drugs, and trashing city centers. This movement hardly garners respect.The fact that they offer no alternatives, Only protest, increasingly disgustingly and violently as of late. Can’t wait for the deep freeze to set in some of these more northern cities. Then it just leaves police in CA to deal with the rioting they’ve come to expect.

    5. Kswede is an IDIOT says:

      STFU moron.

    6. RMcGehee says:

      I’d like to see these commie protesters splattered with blood and urine, lots and lots of urine, and maybe some feces. That might improve their smell.

    7. Peter Kneel says:

      Please… we participated in similar Occupy events in the East and ceased doing so once we watched the message further sink in to obscurity. These aren’t plants… there are jerks everywhere… As a nation, we have the right to protest- and we should be focussing this aim at the White House and lawmakers, not the banks and honest businesspeople trying to make a living.

      1. Roze says:

        Agreed. Set something up then.

      2. phhhhht says:

        But, at least the tea parties were organized and you didnt hear about the ‘jerks’ because they werent given all the rope to hang us with. We had a message and a plan, Occupy is like a 3 year old whining to get what he wants.

    8. derty ernie says:

      the occupiers are nicely funded by your local and state unions who have tons of money to toss around. Money that you pay by buying there over priced products: autos, etc.
      Billionaires on the west coast who want socialisn are also paying for a lot of this.

      1. Caligula says:

        HEY! these kids do so much for these vendors, and they don’t appreciate it. did they think they could live off of the hard earned…wait, what? they don’t work, don’t have any money and don’t pay for anything? they’ve been getting everything for free? oh…well…um…chit.

      2. Caligula says:

        Obama has endorsed the bunch of trash. In my opinion that puts him in the same category as them.

      4. LTCB says:

        Don’t forget the tons of money billionaire Soros throws their way through front organiszations. Put out an international arrest warrant for Soros dead or alive. The man is a menace to civil society and needs removed from it and his money. He is the one person most responsible for the erosion of society we see today.

        Acorn, which now has a new name, is also sponsoring this debacle.

      6. Marshall C. Stern says:

        Wow There are a lot of Fox News watchers posting here. As I suspected there is no there there. This guy DiMaio is running for Mayor and made the whole thing up or used the street vendor to do so. The facts is this vendor has been having trouble with vagrants for years and the occupiers are not even on the plaza till after closing. Here’s a video from a local businessman on his opinion about how the occupiers have behaved toward his business. Hey Tea Partiers, why don’t you put all the energy you do into hating into helping us cme up with actual solutions to the countries problems?

      7. Bohemond says:

        “Hey Tea Partiers, why don’t you put all the energy you do into hating into helping us cme up with actual solutions to the countries problems?”

        We are. Haven’t you been paying attention? In Indiana we advanced right-to-work- and barely fell short in New Hampshire; in Wisconsin and (tragically, temporarily) constrained thye rapacious public-employee unions which are robbing the country blind. In Washington, with only one house of Congress, we nonetheless have been able tom prevent Obama from doing additional damage to the economy. And we’re preparing to take the Senate and White House next year so that we can bring this nation back from the brink of the Greek abyss.

      8. jmz says:

        funny I was thinking the same thing as a tea party member 2 yrs ago when 99% of these ows loons and commies were out protesting us. We in the tea party were trying to stop the bailouts in the beginning while these drugged up commies in OWS, the media and washington were out calling us racists because we oppsed the bailouts. There are NO tin foil hats in the TP buuddy..sorry, but there are definatly communists marxists, social basket cases, poser rich kids wanting to pretemnd to be poor and opressed, anti semites and wannabe terrorists in OWS. you may want to check your own group for nutcases before you start mouthing off to the people. We in the tea party HAVE THE SOLUTIONS…always did…but its not one you and OWS want because it involves personal responsibility and not redistributing others money for your own goals. Face it. OWS is commies and pathetic loosers crying over their own lifes failures. This hot dog cart thing is but one of many incidents that can be tracked DIRECTLY to OWS and their goals. We in the tea party are not framming you…we dont need to send infiltrators to your groups like you did us. we pointed out and promptly disavowed racists and nuts in our movement, while OWS celebrated its racists and nut jobs, gives them a mike and chants along proudly with the communist and antisemetic and hateful speaches OWS gives. you really want to go into detail over who supports who? you cry about the koch brothers, when you have union thugs george soros(nazi collaborator), Hammas, KKK, Communist party USA, SDS and many other lovely groups all directly supporting and activly helping OWS. you dont have a leg to stand on. America KNOWS what OWS is, they KNOW its roots based in hate and ignorance. and we KNOW that all you want is a handout and to be slaves. its not gonna happen.

      9. Ilene says:

        I would boycott any movie of any star who supports this. Why did California put Brown in office????

      10. SLAVE GIRL says:


      11. TeaRunner says:

        Slave Girl, what do you mean the unions don’t have money? The Democrats are shoveling it to them directly from the taxpayers. They know the membership is broke so they’re taking it from the rest of us. That’s what the first round of stimulus was all about.

        If you changed the channel off MSNBC for a second you would have been let in on the story. Take this time off to finish high school.

      12. TomS says:

        This is pure BS. “No one” is working? So out of every 100 people, say the real rate of unemployment is 15%, then that means 85% ARE working. And you’re “disabled?” Back trouble? BS! Just lazy and stupid. F-cking commie beeyatch!
        And this is real rich, that the unions are broke. Lie!

    9. David says:

      There was no police action, because the police are union. Right now, the unions still find use in turning a blind eye to the Occupiers actions. This is the danger of have any public service employees unionize. The union interest will all come before their duty to the public.


        “Whose Carts?”
        “OUR CARTS!!”

      2. Edgar Friendly says:

        It’s not so much that the police are “union”, as it is that the fools who run these cities (Mayors, City Councils, etc.), have given the police a hands-off policy on these protestors. Trust me, most of the cops don’t like these groups, and want them gone, but they are not being allowed to do their jobs…if they were, it wouldn’t look good in the media…

      3. Vinnie 118 says:

        The police are not “union”, they have a bargaining unit that is part of their association. It is illegal for them to strike. They have only one concern and that is illegal activity. That, coupled with an order by the commanders (who are political) to take action.

    10. DaveinSF says:

      If the police move or get near the Occupiers, they SCREAM “Oppression of free speech and police brutality!” In Oakland, I’ve seen occupiers purposely get into a cops face screaming and yelling in order to try and provoke reaction that can then be recorded and posted online. They have a right to protest and assemble but they will yell, kick and push you if you disagree with them. They are like spoiled children who throw temper tantrums when they don’t get what they want. Just look at the vandalism!

      1. freecheese says:

        Yes, they are spoiled kids that don’t get their way. I wish they would all hold their breath for 45-minutes !

      2. Caligula says:

        we need some skinheads or black panthers or hell’s angels or something to go in and just beat the ever living chit out of them. i pray it will happen. i’m not kidding nor being sarcastic by the way.

      3. LTCB says:

        Break out the straight-jackets for ALL in this crowd and lock them up indefinitely. THey claim they need a home. Give them one. The county/state lockup. Make it for five years. THey’ll calm down after five years in a cell in a straight jacket.

      4. Dirty Ol Sam says:

        Yes, Caligula! I’ve said the same thing. Tell the Hells Angels we’ll turn a blind eye, go in and have yourselves some fun.

      5. Deniser55 says:

        Caligula, the black panthers are already a part of the group.

    11. teaisstronger says:


      The Democrats refuse to clear out the mobs and if the police do, the Democrats tell the mobs to return. The police will eventually join in with the Communist Mob that is what they did in Germany in the 1930s. Ask any real Jew what really happened in 1930s Germany.

      The TEA is your only hope now for freedom and liberty.

        The Tea Party??? A bunch of geriatrics playing dress-up and loving jesus isn’t going to solve anything. Take off your tinfoil hat.. the Democrats aren’t causing this.



      4. EmmaSue says:

        Teaisstupid, Libs are liars and hypocrites who think they can pick and choose who will and won’t be protected under the constitution. 2012 can’t get here fast enough so we can vote your BIGOTED LYING BUTTS out of office!

        BTW we’re not the ones pushing disabled people down stars, or using our BABIES as HUMAN SHIELDS YOU DESPICABLE EXCUSE for GARBAGE! STFUY

    12. teaisstronger says:

      These people will soon be elected Democrat politicians, mayors, US Congressmen and US Senators. Many of that mob will one day be Democrat Presidents.

      Only the TEA can save you now.

      My belief is that these “occupy” poopstock thugoramas will turn into Occupy Polling Stations intimidation in the 2012 Presidential election.

      1. Weasler says:

        That’s when we need to start massaging their faces – with baseball bats.

    16. drunked munk says:

      Over a million protesters were participating in the occupy protest. No violence was to be seen. No press were to be seen. Everyone wanted to ignore the protest all together. They said it was too small and had no real gumption. Escalation of the protest is the only way to be heard. The people that hear are looters and predators. They hijack the protest. Big business jumps in… after all they are looters and predators.

      Moral of the story: Pay attention to the peaceful protesters. Help them fix the problem they are upset about. Unfortunately when you ignore them, the protest will become hijacked and out of hand. Hard to control. Because the original cause of the protest will not even be considered. This protest will happen again once the current hijacked protest subsides.

      1. Weasler says:

        Go back to your Fine Farts class. Your beard and sandals professor misses you.

      2. Max Entropy says:

        Down Twinkles to you.
        The moral of the story is that you have a bunch of entitled, naive man-children that want something for nothing and are demanding that someone else pay for their mistakes and to pay their way. In their naive worldview, they believe that because someone has more, they have less.
        The children that graduated with a degree in Aboriginal art and $80K in debt can’t figure out why they haven’t got that $100K job that the university implied they would be getting.
        The rest are just here for the party and to live out their fantasies that they had when they were 12 years old about a world with no grownups to tell them what to do.
        Time for a reality crack-down.

      3. Uncle Jefe says:

        Hijacked protest? Oh, this sounds familiar…
        ‘Communism never worked because it was never properly implemented.’
        Yes, if only the ‘protest’ was allowed to show what it could REALLY do…
        Guess what, this is all they can REALLY do, just as you’ve mentioned- when they aren’t “heard” (in other words, when they don’t get their way) they get violent. So if it’s OK for them, it should be OK for us.
        But when we feel that things aren’t being done correctly, we create a movement that uses the ballot box to stop out of control government spending and to stop the unabated rise of taxes.
        And it was peaceful.
        And yet we were called Tea Party terrorists…
        These punks can go to hell.

      4. John from NH says:

        Umm Drunked Munk,

        At what point did the peaceful TEA party protests get hijacked and turn to violence??? …. One example? ….

      5. Pete0097 says:

        The problem with what the protestors want is that very soon they will run out of other peoples money.

      6. Tom M. says:

        Your “moral” is eerily similar to Herman Goehring’s explanation of the Nazi Brownshirt riots in the early thirties.

      7. jason m zeidler says:

        really? so we are to give everyone free everything? thats what they are upset about, the fact they have to pay loans they took out for bs degrees they wanted. these are spoiled rich kids, commies and old hippies and union thugs looking to destroy. thats it…always was. there is nothing noble about ows and there never was. they were nt hijacked by radical anybody, they were radical from the beginning and now that they dont get their free bees no more their true colors are comming out. they need to be stopped by any means, if politicans and cops cant or wont, then tea party and real americans need to get out and force them out!

      8. Mary Wright Pippert says:

        Just what are they protesting? that some people work hard and have money and others just want a handout?

      9. HandsomeCowboy says:

        ….fella, you talk like a cretin that fell outta a well….!

      10. David says:

        I do not want to pay attention to them because I do not agree with them.

        If they get out of hand, I say toss them in jail. Book em Danno

        Now what Sunshine? Burn my foodcart of I fail to agree with you and support your cause?

        Force me to comply?

        Reeducate me?

        Free will bro. Free speech goes both ways..

      11. Jerry Stafford Jr. says:

        Drunked Munk,

        this has never been peaceful, all along it was started, and then guided by the unions and other thugs…..this was the end game from the start

      12. Monkey_Poo_In_The_Zoo says:

        The moral is Pay Attention?! You mean like the never violent Tea Party? The press smeared them with ad hominem attacks, false claims of racism and tried their best to marginalize their valid concerns. These slackers and spoiled entitlement junkies are just throwing tantrums. All their lives, it’s worked with parents and teachers, so why wouldn’t they avoid mature behavior and personal responsibility?! Naive people and wannabe hippies are their hallmark. Sure, there are real problems with our system in 2011: the course of this administration, and people are upset with what is becoming the new status quo (i.e. pay-to-play winners / ‘outsiders’ smacked down by over-reaching gov’t.), but to quote a 1%’er “I’m doing my part. Are You?!”

      13. p dirt says:

        No facts in your post. The first OWS protestors were hired via Craigslist ads to seed the movement @ $2200.00 per month (and up) then some people joined in who thought they were protesting corporate greed. Then the unions and Code Pink,, cpusa, and a bunch of other commie organizations joined in to reveal their support. Never a million people, never hijacked (sure some folks were fooled) The purpose was always to promote the “progressive (communist/marxist/socialist)agenda especially if it involves violence. The violence is designed to elicit more police action and eventually martial law. The protestors are pawns in a dirty game that they probably have no perception of. It is only fitting that since the agenda more closely resembles the language of the 1917 Russian Revolution that Lenin’s words describe the participants as “useful idiots”.

      14. pitter43 says:

        Maybe you should sober up and try to say something that sounds a little smart.

        “Over a million protesters were participating in the occupy protest. No violence was to be seen. No press were to be seen. Everyone wanted to ignore the protest all together”

        Give me a break. The MSM were giving this thing loving, soft-focus, golden backlight coverage from the start- and sloughing over the fact that right from the start it was organized by violent groups like the SEIU and Socialist Workers Party.

      16. Ariel Bonzai says:

        I have my doubts about the veracity of this report, Mr. Munk. There is clearly a concerted effort to defame the occupy protest. Note the number of incoherent blurts here and the cryptic ature of the report itself. It’s a good sign. They are feeling the heat at last. Cheers!

      17. jmz says:

        yeah a concerted effort to defame a movement based in communism and activly calls for violence. im sure oakland was a groups of evil racist tea party memvers, im sure the rapes, roberies, public defication and destruction was all conservatives dressed as OWS. im sure the lovely hammer and sickle flags and che shirts are photoshopped. this was all done by george bush and elvis to defame obama cause he is black. They did it with invisible planes provided by aliens from the the planet poopydooby with the help from princess toadstool who is a tea party member .

        yep you guys at OWS sure are peaceful

      18. John Freiheit says:

        drunked munk –
        Over a million protesters were participating in the occupy protest. No violence was to be seen. No press were to be seen.
        A million ???? There is a few thousand in OWS, the rest of the country sites are small. 10,000 at mos totalt. And from the beginning they were virulent. It was the TEA PARTY (who I am NOT a member of) that had the million strong demonstrations. Moral of the story…. when corrupt rich democrats hire a anti-American Canadian marketing company to create a partisan movement to “rival the Tea Party”…. I guess its not as easy as just throwing money at it. LOL.

      19. EmaaSue says:

        drunked munk you probably didn’t notice the thefts because you were DRUNK. Either that or YOU are a LIAR, and like so many other #OWS are telling women who were RAPED to SHUT UP!

      I graduated college in the early 80’s. There were few jobs, buying a house was completely out of reach with rates at 18%. I took the only minimum wage job I could find and worked my way up the ladder to an executive level position 20 years later after completing graduate school along the way.

      Problem: People today want everything “today”. They are lazy and expect never ending handouts. I did it, they can do it. Lazy violent bums. My family and I have also been victimized by union barbarism. I watched for nearly a year as these people burned down, shot, beat up, vandalized, assaulted, stalked, etc. I have absolutely no respect for anyone associated with unions. They are ignorant barbarians, inhuman at best.

    19. Max Entropy says:

      So, THAT’s their reason for throwing urine on the vendor’s carts?
      The “ridiculous notion” that you mentioned came with a caveat: It’s not easy, you have to put some effort into it and there will be setbacks.
      The children need to learn this, not to throw a huge pity-party whenever things don’t follow their fantasies.

      Nonsense! I was right out of high school in the late 70s in Connecticut. You couldn’t BUY a job. I’ve changed my career twice in my life so far. I make a decent living, but am certainly not rich. These protesters had never had a bad day before now.

        Maybe you should be shot, Bill.

      3. debrarae says:

        Having had the ‘displeasure’ of being surrounding by the #OWS thugs, I dislike them intensely. But to ‘shoot’ them on site?

        I hate #OWS, especially after they surrounded me at a Albuquerque Wal Mart.

        But I will never condone shooting anyone on site, not even them.

        The difference between a Con and a LIb should be this. Whereas Libs are saying that Cons are unworthy of protections under the constitution; Cons should be for Constitutional freedoms for all law abiding citizens whether or not they ‘agree’ with them.

      4. EmmaSue says:

        Slavegirl instead of spouting LIBERAL PROPEGANDA, you should be thinking for yourself. I hope when it’s your ‘little’ business that’s vandelized someone treats YOU precisely the way the #OWS treated those poor Venders!

        And if you support #OWS, then you should be condemning the Violence that YOUR PEOPLE are doing! The fact is if you STEAL, and destroy private property’ your a Criminal and deserve to be treated as such.

        BTW I don’t condone any shooting of ANYBODY.

        But your posts are so out there, I suggest the YELLOW PAGERS for you to find a good COUNSELOR!

      Remember that this is the land of Oppertunity

    25. TKO says:

      Ok, so at 28 I’m not much older than most of these protesters. I graduated college in 2006. I held two minimum wage non-union jobs ($6.25/hr) during the recession of 2002-2003 in order to pay may way through community college and a state University without loans. I also got good grades in high school and got two small scholarships (as a white girl there wasn’t much opportunity for a full ride) to pay for books and some living expenses. I was financially independent of my parents by the age of 23. Somehow I’ve managed to graduate, get a job and keep it, pay for a wedding, and have a child without incurring any debt other than half a mortgage (yes we bought within our means in 2006 and put a ton of money down.) It’s called planning, self-reliance, and thinking ahead

      what? since when does that give you a right to destroy and rob? what notion, alot of these punks have jobs and or are going to high leven very expensiveschools funded by mommy and daddy, we dont know? we had to make our own lives and build our own futures…the farther bac you go the more true it becomes, we didnt have the safetynets and resources these ows punks have. if they want jobs thenthey need to get them…any job. but no, they want to spend 150k to get a useless lib arts degree in feminist studies and nose picking and then think that automatically entitles them to high level positions. they havent been sold on the American dream, they been brought up on themarxist dream of entitlements and nanystate. these ows punks are whinners sub human comies and drugged up loosers looking to destrroy freedom and capitialism because they are ignorant of reality

    27. eduk8tr says:

      If you or I were to go there and pitch a tent during any other time, wouldn’t we be asked to leave or given a fine?? They should at least be charged a camping fee !!

    28. mmichaels says:

      I like the “push the old lady down the stairs” in the article, did they steal candy from a baby too? Taken in totality, these comments are crazily one sided, you guys don’t need much to unload. Have fun.

      1. jason m zeidler says:

        and you cant say they did otherwise either… heck lets take out the old lady…that still dosent remove the thousand and more arrests, the rapes, sexual assault, the roberies, the vandalism, and lots more including being supported monetarily and otherwise by the communists, nazi party, unions, hamas kkk and other lovely groups. you aholes have been out almost 2 months now ‘occupying’ chanting, with signs etc. you have had media coverage that has been so soft that its borderline fantasy and still you ows idiots cannot come up with 1 single coherant message that contains what the problem is what you want and what your solution is. OWS is nothing more than hippies and commies and whinny rich kids at a big commie sponsered drugged out rave destroying real american and real producers live all pretending to be V of vendetta. you are a joke OWS is a joke and 99% of the problem!! so i ask you what have we missed?

      2. jason m zeidler says:

        oh and no they didnt steal from lil babies they just use them as shields in traffic and to block people trying to leave…thats much better

      3. TeaRunner says:

        The old lady incident is on tape and been running across the broadcasts. Good luck getting anyone to believe you from now on.

    29. dadae says:

      Like feeding wild animals. They get violent when they are cut off from the trough. They lose all ability to feed themselves.

    30. awestruck says:

      the liberal democratic mayors of most of these cities have instructed the police to take a “hands off” disposition with the occupiers…..

      they congregate with no permit for a march or camping on public property with no consequences

    31. Gretchen says:

      First of all, I am an “Occupier.” I’m from San Diego. I’m not saying this is right because obviously there are bad apples in any situation. But we’re not “destroying” this country, we’re trying to save it from those who are actually destroying it. Maybe if you took some time to talk to us or get to know us, you’d know we aren’t a bunch of stoned hippies who don’t want to work and looking for a handout. I am a college graduate. I have a job. I pay my taxes. I vote. I pay attention to what’s happening in my country. And I’m fed up with government corruption and greed and a bunch of sheep like yourself just following what authority figures tell you is right. This kind of patriotism is what this country was FOUNDED ON and if you say that us expressing our first amendment rights is destroying the country, then you don’t actually know what America stands for. I LOVE MY COUNTRY. I am fed up with people like YOU who just roll over on their backs and let the fat cats walk all over us. This is no longer a Democracy. This is a Capitalist Country and we over at OWS are trying to bring back democracy and voice our opinions and displeasure. If that’s a bad thing, then America really is dead.

      1. Bohemond says:

        “This is a Capitalist Country and we over at OWS are trying to bring back democracy and voice our opinions and displeasure”

        Which is why you’re marching with those Che posters and “Workers of the World Unite” slogans?

        If you hate crony capitalism and rent-seeking, as you should, then you ought to be #occupying the White House lawn.

      2. Julie says:

        Gretchen, you are wrong on so many accounts. First and foremost, this is and always have been a Capitalist Country, that’s how the founding fathers designed it to be, and as far as I know that is what makes this country so great. I am very fortunate to have been able to come here from a communist country where the re-distribution of income was an everyday reality. In my 20 plus years being here I never regretted the move. I am far from being wealthy, but I here at least I have the opportunity to become what I want to become and earn as much as I can. This is a great country and if you don’t agree you just don’t have an experience living in other parts of the world. Socialism has proven to be a failure, and I hope we here don’t repeat the mistakes of others. And secondly, i am not “just following what authority figures tell you is right”. I like to think for myself and make my own decisions. And i hate people like you who mindlessly follow Occupy movement organizers looking for somebody to blame for their own troubles.

      3. FLO says:

        Gretchen,this country is NOT democracy — it is a REPUBLIC.
        And IF you want to help, get off the street and start visiting your local politicians, then county, state and federal.This type of “protest” is not the way to change things.
        Did you put yourself through school or did Mom and Dad pay for it? Do you pay your own bills, balance your budget? If you are self sufficient then you are like the majority of hard working Americans that see what our REPUBLIC is becoming and really do want to see it become what it once was. But living on public property and “protesting” the OWS way is the wrong way to go about it.
        Take your time and use it Constructively not Destructively!!!!

    32. Chris says:

      This is why people and business need to be able to have CCW permits to protect them selves..

      Start haveing people fight back see how brave these punks are

    33. bob says:

      i say round them up and move them to Fullerton and let the cops there take care of them

    34. Marshall C. Stern says:

      This sounds like BS folks. The occupy movement is 100% dedicated to non-violence. If this happened would look for provocateurs and possibly right wing sources or Koch Brothers Tea party groups who have been desperate to discredit this wonderful actual grass roots movement. I find this very hard to believe. I have been with occupiers in Chicago, DC and New York. I do not know about San Diego but if they did indeed do this, they are not part of what the movement is about. After all those street vendors are the very people we are fighting for. I smell a Tea Bag Rat.

      1. Bohemond says:

        “The occupy movement is 100% dedicated to non-violence. If this happened would look for provocateurs and possibly right wing sources or Koch Brothers Tea party groups”

        You are a frickin’ loony. Many of those arrested in the Oakland riots are veteran hard-left activists with many priors from assorted G-8 and IMF riots- and and you can’t tell me that those were thousands of Tea Party plants loudly cheering Bill the Bomber Ayers’ call for revolution in Chicago. Are you seriously going to claim that it was a mob of Breitbart provocateurs who attacked the CAP conference in DC?

        100% dedicated to non-violence? Then explain the speaker in New York from the IWW denouncing Ghandi and King’s non-violence as weak an ineffectual; explain the prominent presence of such groups as Bolshevik Tendency, the Revolutionary Socialist Party and Communist Action?

        Violence is as left-wing as apple pie is American- we have all seen the smashing and burning at leftist protests over everything from illegal immigration to student tuition.

    35. Marshall C. Stern says:

      This story sounds like BS to me. I understand the Corporately owned Tea Party is slavering and drooling over ways to delegitimize the occupy movement but I have been involved with Occupy Chicago and DC and New York and I can sate categorically that this sort of behavior is directly opposed to what the movement is all about. There is a 100% commitment to non-violence as well as a strong concern for the 99% of which these vendors are a part. Those of you who allow your anger to blind you to excesses of the corporations who have bought our government are doing yourselves no favors by making yourselves dupes and saps for their nefarious schemes. I can not say with 100% certainty that this was not the work of the San Diego occupiers and if it was I personally would disown anyone who did such a thing, but you should know that from the beginning there have been provocateurs who are not part of the movement who have tried to insight violence. I think this needs to be investigated thoroughly before you pass judgement.

      1. Bohemond says:

        “the Corporately owned Tea Party”

        Man, what an ignorant fool. But then that goes without saying, given your delusional bleat that the Occupy rioters are “nonviolent”

    36. debrarae says:

      The police in CA are like the police in DC, they do not CARE that innocent people are being hurt. They do not care that hard working Americans who created their own jobs via buying Franchises, are in danger of losing their businesses.

  2. Robert :Lee says:

    It is the same with “Occupy LA” group. They forced the permit paying, revenue generating Farmers Market out of the lawns of City Hall. Did any city leaders say anything to defend those who actually work hard for a living? No! LA City leaders are a bunch of useless cowards.

    1. mirted says:

      The voters of LA vote and retain these politicians in office. Do you think there’s a chance enough voters will remember this for the next election? I don’t.

    2. Sherri C says:

      Hey, we’ll trade our Oakland “city leaders” for yours. No, wait, they are ALL useless. Let’s recall ALL of them. It is SO past time for these pseudo-activists to go away! They do NOT speak for me.

  3. BArry Harrison says:

    I’ve come to the conclusion the ‘occupiers’ are noting more than thugs.

    1. alex says:

      Just wait until people realize simply protester has never and will never change anything and they become desperate for results.

      Human nature is to continually up the ante until one side has no more stomach for it. On wall streets side they don’t even have to fight there own battle they order the cops to do it for them.

      The cops feel vindicated by “the law” and they have guns and tear gas grenades that they use just like Egypt who our president called unconscionable.

      1. Kane Ridd says:

        what’s your point? do you mean there will be riots and/or civil war if their demands are not met? Elect a new president in 2012 and that will be a peaceful solution to most problems.

      2. jasmine says:

        Here we go again, an attempt to compare the OWS protest to Taghir Square. THERE IS NO COMPARISON.

      3. disapointedvet says:

        that’s because they enforce “the law” idiot.

        amazing, this is the liberal version of the Tea Party huh? Way to show absolutely no class and riot when the handouts stop. Tea Party is trying to get government out of our lives, these idiots want the government more involved; because they can’t or won’t step up and make their own lives better.

      4. JS says:

        Sooner or later the citizenry will address this if law enforcement doesnt. It won’t be pretty for the protesters if it comes to that.

    2. ed says:

      I’ve thought about it and I have determined that they are indeed thugs!

    3. Raul says:

      Yes, they are drug addicted, STD carrying, old lady bashing, i-Pod wearing, Ray-Ban wearing, corporation supporting, living off mommy and daddy punks.

    4. Keith says:

      I’ve thought about it as well, they are actually worthless liberal trash like the Obama village idiot, Pelosi and so on.

    5. disapointedvet says:

      This is what happens when folks come to expect handouts; stop the handouts and they riot becuase they don’t know how to work or earn what they get; they think they are owed something just because they want it.

    6. Rebecca Iffinger says:

    11. cntrlfrk says:

      They are worse than thugs.

      They are Obama brown-shirts who will stop at nothing to do his bidding and get him re-elected.

      He will push them into more violence.


      1. HansJurgen says:

        And then Obummer will instate Martial Law so that he can stay in power as long as the civil unrest and violence continues. And you know Obummer’s “army” will make sure that we stay in civil war for a long time.

      2. TheRealKingMax says:

        No -.

        I think these are Obowel-movements mujideen….

        Hit them with a water cannon.

      3. coalisking says:

        Hans, November 9th is the first national test of the Emergency Broadcast System, coast to coast, all at once. What could possibly happen that we would all need to be told en mass? Everything happens for a reason. Gives me great pause.

    12. 10th Crusade says:

      “Better think again Mr BArry”

      Or WHAT, comrade Kswede? Bring on your “revolution” – those trustafarians not sent home to your mommies with toe tags will wind up in Gitmo on Jan 22, 2013.

      GET OUT OF OUR COUNTRY you jihadi-loving communist swine!

    13. John Potts says:

      A whiff of grape should calm them down a bit. The Constitution says “peacebly assemble”. Well they are not peaceful and should be delt with as such. I am wondering how the hell thry get time off from work? What’s that you say? They don’t have a job? Bull… there are jobs. O looked in the paper and there they were. I looked on the internet and there are thousands of jobs. You say they dropped out of school? No sympathy here. I am a former high school drop out who went on to aquire two degrees. What… they’re doing it for Obama? Now that’s an answer I can believe in. Obama’s future Stormtroopers.

    14. urstrange says:

      Octopi Wall Street and Beyond ARE thugs and they have O.thugo’s Union goon tentacles encircling them as a seal of approval. This is the “change” the Alinsky inspired capo di tutti capi faux POTUS promised as he transforms America into Amerika. The Octopi’ protest is right out of the pages of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals”, which is O.commie’s bible and resides by his Koran on his bedside table.

    15. Mikey says:

      Every single day these people prove again and again that they are nothing more than entitlement sucking liberals that think they are owed everything in life.

      Calling them thugs is being kind….

    16. Aaron says:

      Thugs work harder for their living than these idiot children do.

    17. Sara says:

      ^ Reading your comments, I see that you guys are extremely uneducated about the Occupy Movement. I’ve been to the Occupy LA grounds and all I see is love and support for their fellow Americans. People of ALL AGES, all races, and all religions come together to have discussions about the future and various political topics revolving around the movement. It is not just whiny kids out of college and hippies. Our country is in a bad place. All occupiers believe so. The Occupy Movement is trying to do is to raise awareness of the problems in our country and present some solutions.

      The actions of a few occupiers do not represent us as a whole.

  4. Al Right says:

    The OWS Movement has collected over $600,000 in donations so far, and yet the homeless are shunned from partaking in their 5-Star Chef prepared meals…

    How about… Occupy a Soup Kitchen?
    Get more ows facts on my site:

    1. Mehiilanheles! says:

      They’re pushing a million in cash donations and I’m sure their going to start hiding money as it grows or shifting it around into non-profit organizations as tax-sheltered panhandled money.

      1. Matteau Blythe says:

        Occupy wall street’s money is in a community bank in New york. Do your research before you write some ignorant garbage. This is a news article on where the organizations money is.

      2. Liberty Jane says:

        @matteau That’s just the public face of the donations. If you believe that the Marxist organizations running and supporting the protests are not hiding and/or laundering much, much more money you’re delusional. That’s a bit redundant, though. Your delusion begins at your support of the Occupy Wherevers.

    2. Matteau Blythe says:

      What five star chef meals?? I’m an occupier of San Diego and we fed the homeless. Stop spreading misinformation and lies.

      1. fed up with the stipidity of the OWS says:

        Go home you moron. You occupiers need to be removed. Bring on the police dogs and rid our cities of these lazy, mooching imbeciles!

      2. SD conservative says:

        GET A JOB YOU LEECH!!!

      3. wog67 says:

        Matteau Blythe

        “Occupy wall street’s money is in a community bank in New york. Do your research before you write some ignorant garbage. This is a news article on where the organizations money is.

        MATTEAU, How can I believe this article you refer to? Aren’t reporters just writing things without interviewing anyone? If the article about the food carts is false, how do I know the link you posted is?

      4. jasmine says:

        Matteau – do you get your talking points from the Obama people? I seem to recall that any time something is said about Obama or his policies, they always claim that people are “spreading misinformation and lies”.

        You obviously avoid reading about what is happening at the other OWS protest sites. For instance, in NYC, the OWS folks are complaining about the “professional” homeless people who are joining the protest to eat the free food. (And, yes, it was gourmet food cooked by a 5-star chef). They want to ban the homeless from “their” protest, yet they claim that they represent 99% of the population. I guarantee that the homeless in NYC are NOT a part of other 1%. And, btw, there are PLENTY of interviews of OWS protesters that are on the web, and the majority of those interviewed come off as radical and hate-filled.

      5. Jim says:

        Get a job

    3. Joseph says:

      That’s because some people are more equal than others.

  5. Julie says:

    This is not the first incident of criminal conduct on your part. Even if you people have good intentions, your actions speak louder than words. The movement attrats criminal element and does a lot of damage to small business and personal and state property that you choose to occupy. It’s time to stop and do something productive with your lives.

    1. Matteau Blythe says:

      The occupation attracts the homeless because we feed them. Crime is an economic problem. This lady has complained for months before the protest, about problems with homeless people. This is a political -ploy to get occupy out of the civic center. We cannot control the actions of the homeless. We have done nothing but be supportive of these two businesses. As i stated below, the tip jar was replaced by another one with more money in it. This was done out of respect for the lady not out of guilt. We did not steal the tip jar. A homeless man did. That’s why we need to provide more help to the homeless and stop sweeping the issue under the rug or scapegoating peaceful protestors.

      1. Bob says:

        A group of people being kind to another person is one thing. That’s basic human kindness. Demanding (as a whole) that society collapse in order to have life handed to you on a silver platter is something else entirely. The occupy movements obviously have some good people within, but so does every group. Want to see a large group of people doing good? Go attend a Bible-believing church. When the love of Christ is shown, human kindness is the rule instead of the exception.

      2. for shame! says:

        So now you’re blaming the homeless for theft…do you have a name? Did you see said person stealing it? You feed them, then blame them for your troubles…LOL! Gee, can I be your friend?

      3. JWS says:

        “…stop sweeping the issue under the rug or scapegoating peaceful protestors.”

        …that splatter blood and urine on things when they don’t get their way.

      4. SlimeyBritches says:

        Yeah!! It was that homeless guy over there – he did it! It was George Bush he did it! It was congress fault – they did it! Not my fault, Wasn’t me, wasn’t us foolish little twits in occupy! The buck NEVER stops here!

        Their fault – THEM!

      5. Nonyabisnass Patrick says:

        Oh Matteau…this group protest has opened the eyes of the American people. They see through your lies and hypocrisy and the nation is turning more conservative everyday because of you and your lib friends.
        I think it’s disgusting that you want others to pay your way in life. You are takers and that is the truth…ah but you can’t see the truth because you have been brainwashed by liberal educators.

    2. Mr. Kelly says:

      When are you going to realize that intentions are all that matters? It doesn’t matter who they hurt as long as their intentions are good. Isn’t that the lefty motto?

  6. Mike says:

    With the onset of winter, these group of slackers wont last the first couple of storms before being flooded out in defeat !! Go find another cause to bit-ch about. I matter of fact like the banks. They gave me a loan to purchase a house, my cars and a vacation now and then. I can afford this because I work instead of looking for my handout. And for those who got over their heads with mortgages, etc… To freaking bad..Next time use a bit more wisdom before you take on that loan…..

    1. Tony F says:

      Well stated there Mike; too bad that the whiners are too stupid to take RESPONSIBILITY for their own lives…………

    2. Robert Lee says:

      How true it is. People tend to forget about being responsible and sensible. All they want is to blame others for their own failures and stupidity. Bunch of crybabies.

      1. wog67 says:

        Don’t you just hate when unfounded comments invade your movement or cause. Again, I say, “The TEA Party has been labeled negatively by all who don’t subscribe to their beliefs.”
        Get over it and quit defending your cause. You DO NOT know what goes on at every OWS location, nor do you know if some one is sabotaging it.
        I don’t agree with wealth redistribution or calling the rich to give me their money, but that does not mean OWS people can’t protest it. Don’t get so defensive. If you believe in your cause, press on!!
        PS-graduate, earn lots of money, then give it to the poor. That will prove your stance of equity in this matter.

    3. Matteau Blythe says:

      Most of the people at occupy have jobs, school or both…personally I’m a full time student at SDSU. That’s why the numbers are few during the day and grow at night and on the weekends. You have no idea who we are. I’d like to invite you to come down and talk to some of the people at the civic center and see for yourself. We have General assembly meetings at 7:00 every day.

      1. Mehiilanheles! says:

        Uh. No thank you.

        I have BETTER things to do with my time.

        You talk smart, but you’re just naive. When you come out to the real world, you’ll change your tune.

        What is it with you inviting anyway, come off like religious wacko’s that invite you down to really see what its like. As if its an attempt to convert you.

      2. Jack Ryan says:

        No..MOST do not have jobs. Some do. And they are likely to lose them unless they get back to work. The majority of the ones I’ve talked to are living off mommy and daddy and refuse to take responsibility. They want something for nothing. Just like they’ve had handed to them all their lives.

      3. fed up with the stupidity of the OWS says:

        No one cares about your stupid get together. Take your acorn funded communist movement and shove it.

      4. evw says:

        Gee, I’d like to but I’m too busy working to support my family while taking home $0.64 on the dollar. I applaud you for going to college and hopefully earning a degree that will actually land you a job. In the mean time, don’t go blaming me, her, or anyone else because you don’t have what you want. Go out and earn what you want. Food tastes a whole lot better when you pay for it with your own money.

      5. Allan says:

        I may not know you, but I know who you associate with and that tells me a whole lot about who you are and that is no compliment.

      6. wog67 says:

        I would go but seeing the interviews by news media shows your group to be pretty fractured on what exactly your main point is. I dare you to ask random people there what a corporation is. What’s the difference in a large business versus a small one (other than size).
        I’ll take you seriously when you attack ALL Fortune 500 companies equally, as well as those mean union bosses who get paid huge salaries too.
        You guys are just jealous of the ones who have more than they could possibly ever spend. Have you thought about occupying Hollywood?
        Go attack Ted Turner!!

      7. jasmine says:

        A full time student. You don’t have a job? So, who pays your bills? Who paid for your laptop? Who buys your clothes, pays for your food? Who is paying your tuition? Are you there on a scholarship? If so, that would be interesting. Corporations fund a lot of scholarships.

      8. Kevin Pearson says:

        Someone could make a lot of money if they used facial recognition software to compile a “NO HIRE” list that they can provide access to for potential employers.

        Anyone involved with any of these protests demonstrate such a complete lack of judgment that they would have no value whatsoever as an employee.

      9. TomS says:

        “General Assembly,” huh? Sounds a lot like the soviets in Russia. What happens is that a few leaders with nicknames like “Peace” or whatever,the alpha personalities take it upon themselves to “lead” the sheep. It’s all about control. If someone were to dissent, and support free markets, real freedom of speech WITHIN THE “MOVEMENT,” they will be shouted down. Their ideology is similar to Bolshevikism. Democracy? Rule by the leaders, cloaked in “democratic” methods. Truth is, these people are left wing statists, and believe me, they don’t want freedom. they want an economy run by, guess who? THEIR angry, scowling, parasitic leaders.

      10. Raggs says:

        Why is it that all you “Highly Educated” students can’t understand that your own campuses are turning you into liberal drones. If you had any real brains, these protests would be at the administration building of every college in the country. $20,000 – $40,000 yearly tuition for what? I know some university instructors who are paid over $100,000 per year for 6 to 8 hours of teaching per week. That’s why your student loans are so high. But you don’t want to upset your own cushy surroundings. Grow up!

      11. Bohemond says:

        “personally I’m a full time student at SDSU”

        In other words, a superannuated adolescent. One wonders what you’re studying…

    4. David Thomas says:

      Well said.

    5. LikeISeeIt says:

      Mike, You have unfortunately not been paying attention. The reason you need a loan for all of those things is because of the fraudulent banking system and the absurd debt-based inflationary marketplace it has created for its own benefit. When you finally awaken to this fact, you will be on your way to understanding why you are a debt slave to “people” who create money out of thin air without lifting a finger in labor.
      With that said, these OWS pawns are playing right into the set up. They need to be a few blocks over in each of these cities at the Federal Reserve temples.

      1. Kevin Pearson says:

        Debt-based inflationary market place? Have you ever heard of “student loans”? There’s your inflation. BIG EDUCATION. There’s your crooks.

      As a realtor, I have seen these mortgages being given to people who could not afford them. I saw 103% mortgages!!! You can thank Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, Dodd and Frank for this mess. The result was inevitable!

      One thing I learned long ago, if you don’t have the money, don’t buy it!!!

      1. Charley Nash says:

        Exactly! But you won;t see any of the millionaire-TV-talking-head-leftist-clowns bring this up.

      2. JR says:

        How ‘educated’ do you have to be to figure out that having the abilty to get a lot of credit doesn’t matter, but the ability to pay any loan that you take out, does?

        I have a LOT of credit available if I wanted it. I’m just not stupid enough to borrow more money than I can afford to pay back.

        These people blow my mind. This isn’t rocket science, it’s grade school math.

    7. CEC2 says:

      You are right. When we bought our house, we knew what we were comfortable paying. We were actually preapproved for 3x (three times) what we knew we coudl afford. We stuck to our budget and have a beautiful home that we live in, we don’t live for it.

      I have a job, I pay my bills, I put $$ in my retirement acct. I take responsibility for myself…past, present and future. THAT is what these occupiers need to do.

  7. Phil More says:

    I say, if they break the law, arrest them, put them in jail, and most iimportantly, stop their governmet assistance checks. That’ll cool them down.

  8. Timothy Noble says:

    Some of these occupiers are spoiled brats who have never worked a day in their lives.

  9. moral_threat says:

    The key part of this story is:

    “Coffee cart owner Linda Jenson and hot dog cart operators Letty and Pete Soto said they initially provided free food and drink to demonstrators, but when they stopped, the protesters became violent.”

    Once the freebies stopped… Just shows what the “Occupy” groups are all about, freebies.

    1. Akela says:

      See what “touchy-feely” gets you? Bet the vendors don’t “feeeeellll” so righteous now, but they want someone ELSE to fix their carts.

      1. rip300rog says:

        I have to agree, the vendors foolishly supported the movement, now they reap what they sow.

      2. Cindy says:

        “they want someone ELSE to fix their carts”

        Yeah-the idiots who are destroying property should be jailed and should pay to fix the carts. This is vandalism-where is enforcement? I forgot, they are busy groping paying customers at the airport. Hey Hey, ho ho, OWS has go to go

    2. jasmine says:

      In New York, an OWS protesters attacked workers at a McDonalds. Why? Because they refused to give him free food. There seems to be a pattern here with OWS protesters.

    3. cntrlfrk says:

      Ironically, it is the same result that happens in society when you get people used to government ‘freebies’ then recessions and wasteful spending causes cutbacks and austerity measures.

      It’s happening in Greece, and all over Europe. Obama is trying to make it happen here.


    4. Scooby says:

      Exactly. The REAL greedy ones are the people with their hands out. They expect the rest of us to work and give our hard-earned money to them.

      I am sick and tired of these lying, greedy, self-absorbed pigs. They are nothing more than tics sucking the life out of our democracy.

  10. Mehiilanheles! says:

    “…initially provided free food and drink to demonstrators, but when they stopped, the protesters became violent.”

    What? Oh yeah, peaceful and descent people… you know dodo’s, you join any “anti-capitalist” movement, by its nature, it will be anarchist.

    You’re naive to think that it will and is a peaceful movement. You are now PART of, in association with anti-capitalist anarchist movements. You have to accept that, and realistically, you CAN NOT change that fact or change THEM.

  11. RJ says:

    1. Anita P. says:

      I totally and completely agree.

  12. FFL says:

    Occupy Los Angeles/San Diego etc., alleges that they represent 99 percent of the population. Do they ever stop and wonder if any of the 99 percent were invited to President Obumbler’s fund raisers? The answer: (TA DA) NOT a single one! Only big money participates! Do the OWS nut jobs ever wonder where Yoko Lennon banks her 500 million dollar fortune? Yep, the same banks that OWS and their STUPID minions want to see fail! OWS leaders (and that is a stretch too) are as hypocritical as they were in 1968 in Detroit! They strive for power but are simply pawns in the process…They can whine, snivel, shout, destroy and commit anarchy but nothing will change.. unless they can find a viable alternative to capitalism!

  13. bRaD says:

    As the sigh says. ‘Do not feed the wild animals”.

  14. Matteau Blythe says:

    This is a BS story. Notice how there are no occupiers who were interviewed for it. This lady as been complaining to the city about vandalism and death threats for months. Well before the occupiers were there. Do your research people.

  15. Matteau Blythe says:

    I am an occupier. When the tip jar was stolen, the occupiers passed around a jar and filed it with money to replace the stolen one. The money was more than was originally in the jar. This article fails to mention that because the writer did not interview anyone.who actually occupies the civic center.

    1. John J. says:

      You’re a pawn of George Soros. You didn’t decide to show up and break the law on your own. Someone suggested it. Admit it, you’re a useful idiot, to ‘someone’

    2. David Thomas says:

      Go home and stop this madness.

    3. Brigid says:

      Was it enough money to replace and or fix what they viciously damaged and destroyed?
      Do you think that replacing a tip jar makes it all okay now? That we are going to think you are really nice folks? Yeah, you spatter blood and urine on on innocent people and businesses who won’t give you free stuff, but you are really okay because you replaced the tip jar. That simply doesn’t add up and we see through it. Oh yes, and the death threats to those innocent business owners, do you think that is peaceful? No. even If you aren’t personally involved in this you have still embraced violent people into your protest. Either get rid of them or disband. If OWS doesn’t do this then it simply states that it approves of random violence against innocent people.

    4. jasmine says:

      Matteau – you said “The money was more than was originally in the jar.” How would you know that?

      If, indeed, the OWS people collected money to replace what was stolen, then it was probably in an attempt to keep the cart owners from reporting the theft – you guys will do ANYTHING to avoid negative publicity. Even going so far as to discourage female protesters from reporting rapes and assaults. Yes, rapes and assaults of women (and one man) have been reported at several of the OWS protest sites. There have actually been INTERVIEWS of some of the women claiming to have been assaulted. And, before you claim that it is just more “lies from Fox News”, here is a report from a site that you probably will believe – Daily KOS:

    5. Tweety58 says:

      You are a thug.You are part of a vicious mob and are complicit in its collective crimes.You people are going to KILL someone.You are THUGS who will hurt someone unless they will do what you say.You all deserve to get your wigs split.

    Obama-OWS Such a lovely bunch just, like Tea Party we are told.

  17. stevie weevie says:

    Just pay off the student loans for the babies, and they’ll all go away. That’s what they really want. Their democrat party led them down the garden path of taking on too much debt for over-priced colleges, and degrees in fields that have no relevant jobs.

    Corporations aren’t people? What a lie. Might as well say unions aren’t people. You know, like the SEIU thugs who beat defenseless black men in wheelchairs at TEA party events? Or the people who will defecate on cars or shopping carts at “Occupy” events. These are people? I’ll take corporations any day.

  21. MassJim says:

    The movement will get more and more confrontational and violent as the working public gets bored with these clowns and the press, realizing that the movement will work against their beloved Obama, moves the story of the Obamob further and further back in the daily paper. This movement thrives on publicity.

  22. John J. says:

    Bull. The occupiers are breaking the law by definition. So what if you push a few folks down the stairs… the end justifies the means (in your world).

  23. Cromulent says:

    These are just the wages of Obamanomics.

  24. RHO says:

    Bull. You are a bunch of lazy morons who want it handed to you. Your idea of ecomomic equality is somebody else supporting you.

    1. Tom Cook says:

      Agreed. The occupiers attract the politically naive, the economically ignorant, the indolent, the entitlement class, the victim class. The concepts of private property and profit broke the back of feudal society and these morons want to return us to those good old times. The problem with having your hand out is, eventually, your elbow gets locked in that position and you’re a beggar for life

  25. peterwoohoo says:

    The “Occupiers” remind me of the relative or family friend who overstayed their welcome at someone’s house……you know “the thing” that never leaves.

    When you sleep with dogs you get fleas. Food vendors should know better than to
    give away food. Just like the Gov. Once people get it for nothing, it means nothing and the sense of entitlement is unreal. Serves them right for enabling these sniveling whiners to see on the street instead of working for a living.

  31. Dan says:

    as long as you keep getting free hot dogs and coffee……

    Enough, rely on yourself! Succeed or fail on your own hard work and intelligence but for the love of God stop whining! These protests are the indulged and pampered screaming to be further indulged and pampered. Our bad for raising such people, but enough is enough, it stops here.

  37. Dave says:

    Money out of politics? Might as well want unicorns and mermaids. The only way to lessen the impact of money in politics is a smaller, less-intrusive government — nobody wants to bribe someone that has no authority to give them special benefits — yet the “Occupy” folks want exactly the opposite. The more power government has, the more people will be willing to pay for access to politicians. Simple as that.

    As for “economic equality”, last time I checked you and I have the same economic rights, the same rights to life, liberty, and property. What we choose to do with it is up to us. If we don’t end up with equal outcomes, so be it. If I have a Timex and you have a Rolex, we both can still tell time — the “inequality” doesn’t impact my standard of living, which is the ultimate key issue, not whether you and I have the same amount of toys.

  38. Hussein says:

    The “Occupiers” are the ones fully demonstrating greed in this whole charade. Hmmm…wonder what would happen if we walked through these thug camps with signs “Eat the Occupiers”?

  39. George Gi says:

    If you want “Money OUT of Politics and Economic Equality” you better talk to Mr. Obama, whose promised the most transparent presidency is the MOST corrupt and BIG MONEY-connected in deeds (words DON’T count) in at least after-WW!! history!!!

    I suppose in Oakland and DC all those thugs are “infiltrators” as well?! Give me (and this still great country) a break! Work hard, get a job, get a life!!!

  40. Bob says:

    A cart gets vandalized at an Occupy encampment and we’re supposed to pretend it didn’t happen because we weren’t there to see it. Nancy Pelosi arrogantly walks through a group of Tea Party folks on her way to voting on Obamacare, and the media reports tea party members saying all sorts of nasty things to her. No evidence exists of it, no video, witness, etc., yet we’re told over and over again to believe it. If any of these violent and despicable “occupy” altercations happened at a Tea Party rally, we’d never hear the end of it. Oh, the double standard.

  41. Akela says:

    Hegelian Dialectic is the baseline for RAT operations. It brings about change in a simple three-step process: Thesis, Antithesis and Synthesis.

    The first step (thesis) is to create a problem. The second step (antithesis) is to generate opposition to the problem (fear, panic and hysteria). The third step (synthesis) is to offer the solution to the problem created by step one: All of you who participate IN or apologize or make excuses FOR this OWS rabble only contribute to the process and the eventual downfall of the country. Once that occurs just where do you think these spoiled children will wind up? Hmmmm? You are all being suckered by the communists who have taken root in every area of our society.

  42. Cogiito says:

    Got to love the mask…V for Vendetta!

    Unfortunately, the poor rubes haven’t a clue.

    The mask originated as part of the failed Gun Powder plot to kill King James I on November 5, 1605, when Guy Fawkes was caught guarding the gun power. The issue was religion, not wealth.

    In England Guy Fawkes is still burned in effigy on that date, appropriately the night before our presidential election. LOL

  43. Sparky2 says:

    The cart vendor people were Republicans. The Occupiers were Democrat.

  44. James says:

    Its very obvious these people are just trash!

  45. NewOrleansAnn says:

    I blame the politicians. Are they only out of control where dems are in office? How’s about enforcing the law. You’re to blame for emboldening them.

    My sympathies to anyone who leaves near these problems. You should start warning the politicians that they will pay, election day.

    1. Hey You says:

      N O Ann: Don’t blame the politicians! They are only a by-product of the mob rule which we call democracy.

  50. Dean says:

    People are so naive. This is what you get with a mob. You want to be part of something you believe is noble but you can’t control what others do. And you are part of the mob’s actions whether you like it or not, and so share in responsibility for it’s actions.

  51. No Thanks, Matteau! says:

    Matteau…I know you believe your cause is worthy, but let me tell you from first-hand experience when your OWS theory becomes reality, it aint’ pretty and you will be wishing for small government, free-markets, individual liberty, etc….your ideas are dangerous and are always disguised as compassion and equality (and you buy into it)…BE CAREFUL WHAT YOUR WISH FOR, Matteau…I’ve lived it and it truly sucks…I don’t want to be the 99% peasantry your demands would ultimately make us all…take your own advise and DO YOUR RESEARCH…follow your naive thoughts to their logical conclusion…and you do not need a lame college degree to figure it out. Grow up and think!

  52. derty ernie says:

    One of these days maybe a group of citizens with baseball bats will decide enough is enough and visti some of these ocupy sites and express there first amendment rights too.

  53. Craig says:

    You sleep with dogs …. you get fleas. The cart vendors thought they were “buying” good will where there is none. They need to wise up.

  54. derty ernie says:

    The Occupiers learned that they needed to step up the violent acts a bit because the news media stopped showing up at the so called rallies. they became un noticed so the new instructions were to reak a little havoc and stay in the news.

    1. Roze says:

      You trust the media entirely too much…

  55. Roze says:

    “After a relatively peaceful start, the “Occupy” movement has sparked violent clashes with police in Oakland and recently saw protesters push an elderly woman down a flight of stairs in D.C.”

    So we have 3 instances of bad things happening? And the elderly woman’s escort ended up dropping her, no occupy protester can be seen attacking her in the video. There are insane people within every movement, and probably 1 on every street in America so I really don’t understand why you are giving so much credence to these instances. Also, why aren’t you hearing about the Iraq War Veteran who was assaulted by riot police for no reason and still in the hospital? Are you hearing about the other Vets who marched in another city for him? Are you hearing anything good? No, because corporations and banks own your media. A few commie groups are trying to hijack this movement but you are giving NO CREDIT to the people protesting who know what they ARE talking about. Today we do not have free-market Capitalism, we have a Corporatist Oligarchy, there are MANY people out at Occupy that are fighting against THIS, they want Capitalism to be how it SHOULD be. They aren’t all dirty college kids with big mouths and small brains. Stop lumping everyone together. I’m as right-wing as you can get, being a Nationalist, but I can still see the big picture.

    1. No Thanks! says:

      Sorry, Roze…you’re painting a very “Rosy” image of the demands the true OWS folks are stating…I listened to one of their consultants hired to get their message out to the media and it was crazy…it is not as innocuous or virtuous as you think…pretty radical message that would destroy this country and make us just another cesspool of humanity…I am not interested in their ideas…we have something special in this country…government has corrupted business, not the other way around…these OWS folks need new and different ideas to be taken seriously, not to mention meaningful solutions…they’re empty, angry and emotional…not a good place to be.

    2. Penseive says:

      Yes, Roze, I am sure you are saying these same things when the media tries to paint the Tea Party as wacky.

    3. Bohemond says:

      3 incidents? So far there have been 153 incidents resulting in arrests and counting, not to mention the much greater number for which no arrests have been made (like the rapes).

  56. Jasonn says:

    Just like the Tea Party, eh?

    1. Robert Gandalf says:

      No, not just like the Tea Party. Tea Party events do not have people trashing parks and public facilities, raping women and slinging blood and feces at other folks. I see the strategy….demonize and marginalize the Tea Party so their folks are reluctant to stand up for their beliefs and concerns. It won’t work.

      The Left paints the Conservatives as evil and selfish people; to make them ashamed to speak out and participate in the political process. That is how the Left works. Do not be fooled.

  57. OWS doesn't care says:

    They won’t have any credibility with me until they care that the State of CA made a fake MD into the one %. A man came here from overseas, and said he was an MD in his country, so that meant he could call himself one here. Then he brought people from overseas and made them work for him under contracts. The State did NOTHING about this, even though it was proven he had lousy infection control practices and that he wasn’t an MD. He said it was a “cultural misunderstanding” but he’s been here since 1989 and has at least six houses that I know of. Anyone is welcome to talk to me about this; my number is (916) 501-2143. Serious calls only, please.

As where there are less of us putting a stop to your foolishness that is starting to turn into something else, we have millions more in reserve and we are all armed.

    This may not register but think on this; all those greedy rich corporations rake in billions each year. Teacher, Nurses and a lot of Union pensions invest multi-millions to buy stock in these corporations to fund their pensions.

    HEY! these kids do so much for these vendors, and they don’t appreciate it. did they think they could live off of the hard earned…wait, what? they don’t work and don’t have any money? they’ve been getting everything for free? oh…well…um…chit.

  84. templeknight says:

    Obama, pelosi and other democrats, fostered this, nurtured it and now we know,
    this is what “anarchy looks like” most of these idiots have never earned a dime they’ve lived off of their parents and societies largesse. And the unions thugs
    hiding among them wouldn’t know an honest dollar if they saw one! Why does society allow 1000th of a % of that society to dictate our future. Want to make change, real change dump congress, the senate and the communist community organizer squatting in our house; and outlaw lobbyists, prosecute any elected official who commits crimes against the people. And return our elected representatives, to citizen representation, serve and go home, public service should be to serve your fellow citizens not enrich yourself at our expense. Remember elections have consequences.

  86. Robert Marvin Smith says:

    Shame on the liberals for their tacit approval of these goons.

  87. Mrs. Fudd says:

    These people are getting more and more violent, disgusting and must be stopped. It’s time for the local police to stop kowtowing to these thugs and arrest them, clean up the streets and let the real “99%” get back to earning a living and not being afraid to walk the streets. These spoiled brats think they deserve free stuff because they are protesting? Give me a break? They have no clue what they stand for or what they really want. Getting on the news and on YouTube seems to satisfy them and their need for attention. I bet if the Tea Partiers did t his, there would be outcries from every TV news station, newspapers and talking heads like Rachel Maddow and other liberal airheads.

  88. Atomic Comic says:

    If somebody did this to my property, they would get a** kicked….

  89. Lou Ann Watson says:

    city dwellers never seem to understand the inherint danger of feeding wild animals…when will they learn? griffters they are and always be…notice how this is not happening much in more conservative cities or states with a right to carry.

  90. Robert Marvin Smith says:

    OWS is a trial run for next November’s election. The left will try to bully the American people. And if the outcome is close, they will atempt to keep power by mob action at the street level.

    We have to see what the Great Community Organizer will do at that point.

  91. desert says:

    This? is the kind of trash the prez supports? what kind of freaking idiots are you people to support this trash and the trash in the white house???

  92. Karl Magnus says:

    So, when does law enforcement actually enforce the law?
    With these “occupiers” there appears to be a hands-off policy.
    Why? Oh ya … Friends of BHO.
    Like the Korean store owners during the LA riots, when are the decent people going to stand up for THEIR rights?

  93. Tonyinmaine says:

    Nothing but a bunch of animals. I have nothing but contempt for them.

  94. paul says:

    i thought they were upset with millionaires. Seems like a bunch of spoiled punks who get violent when they don’t get what they want or think they deserve.

  95. Harpotoo says:

    You give commie P(s)OS an inch… I mean really what did you expect, normal people like US Tea Party People!

  96. Ben says:

    Sorry street vendors. You know what happens when you feed a stray dog, don’t you? If you didn’t before, you do now.

  97. Tom says:

    First they receive, then they demand, then they attack! First it’s charity – then it’s extortion!

    these occupiers seems kinda like jerks! Herman Cain can turn the country around once he beats these lies!

  100. bill says:

    Serves them right. They supported these monsters with free food and look what it got them.
    The left is only nice why you comply with what they want. The second you step off the plantation they attack you. Just ask herman.

  101. buckgumbo says:

    Hey, give these people a break, their Obama’s people. He said he supports them. After all he is a community organizer and this is a community. This is what the Country gets when it elects a community (union) organizer. Quit complaining.

  102. James Alan says:

    Thus We see the true nature of these “Occupiers”…They contribute nothing, destroy everything. Gimme gimme gimme…take take take…

  103. Karl says:

    If you feed the animals they will learn to come to you for food. If you stop feeding them they can become unpredictable and violent. I am sorry the vendors had to learn the hard way about “DO NOT FEED THE ANIMALS”. But this is entirely their fault for expecting civilized behavior from the lower creatures.

    I hope they do not get a single penny to replace what was damaged because of their own ignorance and incompetence. Perhaps the best lesson they can learn is that ignorance is very expensive at times.

  104. Radioman777 says:

    Communist thugs doing what they do best – destroy society. Funded by George Soros, et al, organized and directed by unions, aided by ACORN, and endorsed by Obama, who hopes to recreate the October Revolution.

  105. Finbar says:

    “Coffee cart owner Linda Jenson and hot dog cart operators Letty and Pete Soto said they initially provided free food and drink to demonstrators, but when they stopped, the protesters became violent.”

    You fed the snake and then you’re shocked when it bites you? Something about the nature of the beast maybe?

  106. Shon says:

    That’s what you get when you support these animals…..They turn on you unless you keep giving. All they know how to do is take. This was self inflicted. Do you still support OWS after this?

  107. Obamaroid Ointment says:

    This is just a small scale demonstration of what’s going to happen when the food stamps stop after the US goes broke and all the moochers go Greek.

      Unfortunately, you’re correct. And it will be nation-wide.

      Better to stay away from big cities!

  108. TroyG says:

    Mobs have no mind…just group feelings…they lose the ability to perform critical thinking on any number of subjects. Emotion is the enemy here.

    Any mob should be dispersed by force if necessary.

  109. nygrump says:

    Since the police are funneling mentally ill and criminals into the Occupy sites, it is disingenuous for this corporate media to blame it on the Occupiers. And to insinuate the violence initiated by the Oakland police was the responsiblity of the Occupiers is more evidence here of a corrupt and biased corporiate media. Adn I love the moron above who asserts in NYC they are defecting on peoples lawns – hey idiot, we don’t have lawns in NYC. The city has refused to provide public toilets for years, so of course the homeless are going to go where they can. The fascist apolgizers hate the US, they hate our freedom!

    1. Pensieve says:

      You mean, like the freedom not to hand out free food?

  110. ontie1 says:

    Looks like the OW’s are disentigrating into a bunch of knuckle dragging thuggs and as their actions tend more toward violence the comments from observers grow less favorable. True colors for the entitlement crowd are now begining to fly all the time and they are creating squalor and problems for everyone around them……

  111. Jon24 says:

    This is what happens when you stop giving free stuff to the do nothings in our country! Nothing but cry baby low lifes!

  112. mike says:

    So you gave food away to people protesting capitalism and now want the rest of us to pay for your losses?

  113. JoeKidd says:

    “Barack Obama owns the Occupy Wall Street movement. It would not have happened but for his class warfare. And as it gets worse and worse because it’s going to get worse and worse, remember where it came from: Barack Obama! He praised it. He supported it. He agrees with it. He sympathizes with it. And as it gets worse and worse, I believe this will be the millstone around Barack Obama’s neck that will take his presidency down.” ~Rudy Giuliani

    It used to be, “When I say Hillshire, you say Farm! Hillshire! Farm! Go meat!” But thanks to Andrew Breitbart, now it’s “When I say Obama, you say Occupy! Obama’s Occupy! DEFEAT!”

  114. JWS says:

    Hmm… I don’t remember reading this kind of reporting about any of those dangerous, crazy TEA Party protests.

    1. Pensieve says:

      That’s because they weren’t dangerous and they weren’t crazy.

  115. HAL9000 says:

    Oh this is beautiful! People who are fed up with all the unfairness of getting a good job and having business and blah blah blah go out and protest, and how do they do it? By trashing someone’s business!

    Gotta love it!

  116. the Gray Lensman says:

    These occupiers have no right to take over the property of anyone or anything . They should be removed by whatever means necessary and it need not be done gently.

  117. Out2Sea says:

    This just a micro version of what will happen when the US defaults and the welfare checks stop. All the parasites will turn to violence (robbing stealing murder), because after all, they deserve what other people work for. From each according to his ability to each according to his need. How’s that Marxism working out for you ? Here is your Hope and Change.

  118. IbSnooker says:

    It’s surprising how many commenters here express disdain toward the OWS protesters. I only count about 1 in 10 comments to be favorable toward OWS. How can that be? I thought OWS represents the “99%”?

    1. The Truth says:

      This is just a shot in the dark, but it could be because the people protesting the system realize that the system’s outdated, biased media is part of the problem. The corporate media wants the status quo. That’s why the TEA party were nothing but a bunch of racists, and why OWS is just a bunch of lazy hippies.

      LOL @ the Tea Party people in here. Was it fun hearing news stories about how you were a bunch of Obama-hating racists? Well guess what–you’re doing the same thing to these people.

      But then again, TEA partiers don’t care about facts. “But, you see, George W. Bush was responsible for the largest increase in federal spending. He even approved TARP” “Nuh uh! Obama’s a communist! And a muslim herp derp!”

      1. jmz says:

        wow you are stupid..especiually for someone who think he has ” the truth” you had your shot in the dark, so let me shed some light. the tea party was called racist by idiot and biased media defending their pet liberal project obama and the nany welfare state they want. their accusations were founded on their own bias not anything the tea party did, thats why all their claims of racism were based on “subconcious racism” and intention NEVER on any hard evidence. OWS on the other hand has full on signs and chants devoted to antisemitism,communism and marxism. there have ben thousands of arrests, and many other crimes in OWS which have NEVER happened in the tea party. Trolls like you have no facts, i can easily dispel EVERY argument made in your pathetic attempt to defend OWS. so i chllenge you to prove me wrong… you have no concept of truth or facts so go away you loser commie are a lazy ows commie coward whos is loosing. OWS is a bowel movement of lil punks who dont have any brains or courage. duuurpp george bush..duuurrppp… waaahhh im an ows puzzy george bush made a mean face so ima cwy waahhhhhhh . OWS =99% of the problem! later ows troll hahahahhahaha looser

  119. toledofan says:

    So, when is enough, enough? I think we’ve already passed enough and we need to start with the force required to bring this debacle to an end. There is no solid coherent message, everybody wants’ something, but, it doesn’t look like anybody wants to work for it. I just wonder how many of these people would stand up and fight if we were attacked, how many of these would risk their lives for freedom like all of those who sacrificed during WWII, Korea, Viet Nam or Iraq. How many of them would expect somebody else to do it for them?

    1. TroyG says:

      Only a few would step up in my opinion.
      Generally speaking, it isn’t the entitled citizen who will risk their life for the rest of the country. OWS, self centered, self serving, lazy bums who feel they are owed a living.
      I despise these people, and wish them all a life of poverty and pain.

  120. Robert Marvin Smith says:

    Ineptocracy (in-ep-toc-ra-cy) – a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

  123. Tim Cherkassky says:

    1.Way to take down big coffee and hot dog!

    2.For too long this country has been overrun by oppressive carts across the country giving out free food and then charging people. That’s how they get you!

    3.Get on the wire, tell them how to bring those sons of b***es down!

  124. Vince says:

    The attitude of these OWSers is simple. “Give us what we want or we hurt you.” Any questions?

  125. Andrzej O. says:

    Hay. Left-wing nuts, this is just like the Tea Party, eh?

  126. David Moore says:

    Such class acts – just like the tea party – right – no wrong.
    These things are loser dirt bags

  127. Ro says:

    See what happens when you feed the animals (for free)…..

  128. Orpheus75 says:

    That’s what happens when you allow rats to bread and run free. These people are not “peaceful” protestors. They are anarchists who want their way in every way, and if they don’t get it… they get violent. Nothing to do with a “peaceful” society.

  129. JAZZ says:

    Nothing is “free.” Protesting with signs that seek “free” college degrees and “free” health care make you look like idiots, because colleges and hospitals don’t operate on rainbows and sunshine. There is no magic money machine to tap for your meandering educational careers and “slow paths” to adulthood, and the 53 percent of taxpaying Americans owe you neither a degree nor an annual physical.
    While I’m pointing out this obvious fact, here are a few other things that are not free: overtime for police officers and municipal workers, trash hauling, repairs to fixtures and property, condoms, Band-Aids and the food that inexplicably appears on the tables in your makeshift protest kitchens. Real people with real dollars are underwriting your civic temper tantrum.

    Your word is your bond. When you demonstrate to eliminate student loan debt, you are advocating precisely the lack of integrity you decry in others. Loans are made based on solemn promises to repay them. No one forces you to borrow money; you are free to choose educational pursuits that don’t require loans, or to seek technical or vocational training that allows you to support yourself and your ongoing educational goals. Also, for the record, being a college student is not a state of victimization. It’s a privilege that billions of young people around the globe would die for — literally.

    A protest is not a party. Most of you are doing this only for attention and fun. Serious people in a sober pursuit of social and political change don’t dance jigs down Sixth Avenue like attendees of a Renaissance festival. You look foolish, you smell gross, you are clearly high and you don’t seem to realize that all around you are people who deem you irrelevant.

    There are reasons you haven’t found jobs. The truth? Your tattooed necks, gauged ears, facial piercings and dirty dreadlocks are off-putting. Nonconformity for the sake of nonconformity isn’t a virtue. Occupy reality: Only 4 percent of college graduates are out of work. If you are among that 4 percent, find a mirror and face the problem. It’s not them. It’s you.

  130. LovinFL says:

    Mistake number 1 was giving them free food in the first place! Didn’t the vendors know they would just want more, More, MORE? Socialism/communism DOES NOT work! Eventually you run out of other people’s money! In this case the vendors realized they couldn’t afford to feed them all. I have no sympathy for them because they supported them in the first place, now they can reap what they sowed. Hopefully they have learned a tough lesson!

  131. gary-bg says:

    Waaaa Waaaa I didn’t get my free hot dog and latte’cafe mocha I’m gonna throw a fit …where is my mommy.

  132. miguel says:

    They gave them free food and drinks. Big mistake. When liberals get something free they demand it as a right and want more of it. They never stop to think who is paying for it or they don’t care.

  133. Leonard Peracchio says:

    So these Anarchists in some SICK minds are considered like the TEA PART???

  134. TheRealKingMax says:

    Time to clean out these roach nests.

    See you in a year….

  135. Jeremy says:

    Did you hear about the group that dressed up like Native Americans and ATTACKED a cargo ship they DIDN’T OWN, which was just there to DO BUSINESS and CREATE JOBS? They wouldn’t even take responsibility and their whole city was ordered to pay for the stuff they destroyed. Not only was this a lawless mob destroying private property, but they were polluting their own harbor too!

    1. ertdfg says:

      Exactly, remember 5thwn the Founding Fathers protested to get more free stuff from the government, make the government bigger, more controlling, more powerful, and to really control more people’s lives because freedom is evil and having the government make all your choices for you is the only good we should fight for?

      Yeah.. me neither.

      But you keep fighting for a government powerful enough to take everything away from everyone to give everyone what you think they should have… clearly we need more government power because they’re never corrupt or stupid.

      Fight for the right not to have freedom… good plan.

    2. Hey You says:

      Yeah, I heard about that because it is part of national mythology.

      That was in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Sounds like a “Commonwealth” place is a weill named place for such lawlessness.

  136. tramky says:

    These vendors hoped to gain something from the so-called protesters, then found out they are nothing but a gaggle of thugs. Oops!

  137. Gerri says:

    The amerikkkan tea party bigots did worse …. much worse.

    1. Pensieve says:

      Please – you are making us laugh.

  138. Rory says:

    The cities officials and our own federal officials that have supported these protests OWN these issues. They need to be held accountable for the actions of those they support otherwise the public WILL respond. Ever notice you don’t see much trouble in places where concealed carry is legal and encouraged, that’s no coincidence. When faced with a public who WILL defend themselves these little cowards scurry off to the dark little corners they belong.

  139. Zito says:

    Another commenter nailed it – OWS will push, and push, and push… Until Productive America has had enough. At that point, I believe Blackwater would do a fine job of exterminating these vermin.

    Would somebody give the police carte blanche shoot to kill orders and clean the rats from the streets.

  144. Greycoat says:

    Gallup says Conservatives outnumber liberals 2 to 1. The radicals at Occupy are even a smaller fringe in liberal side. We Americans who are true patriots outnumber these radicals in numbers & in guns. Are they trying to push us to civil war? If so, let’s show them no quarter. If civil war comes, let’s mercilessly kill these Leftists, Communists, Socialists, National Socialists (Fascists), Progressives, & Anarchist unAmerican dogs. They are human debris & traitors to all that is descent & good.

    1. Greycoat says:

      That’s “decent” not “descent” TYPO

  145. forrest says:

    So the vendors were giving the Occupiers free food and drink until they could no longer afford it and the Occupiers thank them by trashing their carts and threatening them. That’s what this stupid protest is really all about, the ‘Guy Fawkes’ mask is slipping.

  146. Tharpie says:

    Filthy Animals. They have no control of themselves. They cannot manage or regulate their behavior. They are reduced to a troop of apes; screaming and hurling feces. The regression is pathetic. Is it any wonder these louts are dependent leeches?

    And Obama’s not a Muslim. And the media is not biased. And Bill Clinton never had sex with that woman. And gays are not child molesters.

  156. John says:

    These vendors give away products to a gang of liberal, entitlement generation kids and then stop? What did they expect?
    You could walk through a crowd like that and give out $100 bills for a few days and on the last day, walk through and give out $5.00 bills. You would be accosted, assaulted, and spit on as the crowd demanded the remaining $95.00.

  157. Steve says:

    WOW!!! Round them up and force them build a border fence or something. OR FIX OUR ROADS! They wouldn’t do that though, they’d find something wrong with it. How about we send them to one of the post soviet republics, see how they like that. Just ridiculous, why are we allowing these lazy morons to shat on all our values and dignity? I’m tired of watching these disrespectful juvenile emotional disrespectful brats camp out in our front yards whining. Think the economy sucks? DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! Don’t just complain! Or, if you really are such an extremist coffee shop revolutionary, move to Greece.

  158. BigBoa says:

    Disgust indeed. More disgusting is that the people continue to tolerate these thugs. Just like DC where an old lady was knocked down by these bums. If about 50,000 armed and fed up patriots showed up, these leeches would sheet their pants and head for the hills. You won’t take on these thug bums but we’re to believe you’ll take on O’Bozo and the military when he steals or suspends the election? Good luck with that.

  159. Anishinabi says:

    Best comment yet: OWS = The Flea Party Thank you to whoever posted that one.

    Tea Party = Assembly to redress grievances in accordance with Constitutional rights and obligations, with proper permits and respect for public property.

      Thank you for the comparison. That’s great. Vile could be another descriptive word for the Flea Party

  164. mike says:

    let’s see, we have a bunch of know-it-all brats and/or deadbeats protesting across the country I guess because no one’s paying their college loans for them and they haven’t gone straight from mom’s basement to a 6-figure job using their gender studies degree, that then get violent when someone formerly sympathetic decides they’ve given away enough free stuff. if we saw a mom take away a kid’s lollipop we’d call these gatherings what they really are – temper tantrums and nothing more. how the media can think there was ever anything principled or substantive about these gatherings makes them about as bright as the morons they keep writing stories about.

    but we all know what’s going on – the liberals and their pals in the media are desperate for a tea party counterweight and they thought this ragtag group of deadbeats and idiotic human microphones was it. embarrassingly for the liberals and the media, it is.

  165. cntrlfrk says:

    Do yourself, and America a favor and inform your children of who these OWS ‘protesters’ are.

    They are organized and led by the Obama ‘administration’ and far-left Socialist/ Communist organizations.

    Obama will continue to push them until blood flows in the streets.


  166. Carly says:

    You want a job?? Make one! Oh, right, you can’t because you keep raising business taxes. Now there are no jobs, and it cost too much to make new ones. The same people who want to raise business taxes are now out throwing blood and urine on those people trying to make their own jobs for work.

    It’s not the president’s job to make jobs. You want a job… get one. If you can’t find one, make one.

    Wait a minute. How can the occupiers get into trouble? Doesn’t the vendor equipment belong to them? I mean, isn’t this what it is all about? It all belongs “to the people”. Why are the vendors upset? Don’t they beleave in TRUE communism?

  173. Casher O says:

    Gee, drudgies, why arent you calling the protestors “animals” and “savages?” Is it because they are mostly white?

    Here in Philadelphia the protestors have been pretty peaceful, and I hope they stay that way.

    When one lies with the wolves, one risks getting bit.
    They were free feeding the protesters, hence showing their support for the movement. so let the movement they supported help them, I have no sympathy for such as they.

  176. Mr. Kelly says:

    No, their not free loaders, they are hard working 99%ers that don’t want hand outs. Just for people to realize what’s mine is mine and what’s yours is mine. How dare these vendors deny the protesters of their right to their own food. It’s their because it exists. It must be redistributed from those who make it to those who want it.

  177. TKO says:

    Ok, so at 28 I’m not much older than most of these protesters. I graduated college in 2006. I held two minimum wage non-union jobs ($6.25/hr) during the recession of 2002-2003 in order to pay may way through community college and a state University without loans. I also got good grades in high school and got two small scholarships (as a white girl there wasn’t much opportunity for a full ride) to pay for books and some living expenses. I was financially independent of my parents by the age of 23. Somehow I’ve managed to graduate, get a job and keep it, pay for a wedding, and have a child without incurring any debt other than half a mortgage (yes we bought within our means in 2006 and put a ton of money down.) It’s called planning, self-reliance, and thinking ahead, folks. Do I blame banks and corporations’ greed and political influence for my lot in life? Uh, no. Do I blame Washington for 7 in 10 small businesses not hiring and corporations holding onto their profits until a business-friendly administration is in power? Absolutely.

  178. Tea is Tea says:

    After reading many of these comments, I conclude that most of you are completely out of touch with your fellow man. Many are quick to blame and spout hatred without having even been there to witness this incident. There are a-holes present in any subset of the population – OWS or Tea/Democrat or Republican. Anger may be instinctual, and is certainly real, but spitting hate is not a way to solve problems – it is childish at best and breeds violence at worst. Meaningful dialectic seems to be lost in modern America – replaced with mudslinging.

    1. EatMe says:

      I personally hope disease sweeps the occupy camps, as it often does with third world refuge camps of the incapable and useless. Die Occupy!

    2. Real American says:

      obviously, sucks to be in obamaland

  179. Jim in Houston says:

    Give me my free stuff or I will riot. Really classy and intelligent bunch of human waste.

  180. Jimbo says:

    Really people blood? Come on…… Don’t be animals.

  181. Darrel says:

    Primates often fling urine and feces. Slime will always ooze to the bottom of the pond.

    Occupy a job and self respect you ignorant freeloading savages.

  182. Mark says:

    This should be a lesson to anyone even thinking about enabling the occupy losers.
    They think they are entitled to everything for nothing and when you are eventually forced to discontinue the undeserved assistance, they will turn on you.
    These are animals plain and simple, without any basic regard for decency. property, or personal rights.
    They are a blight on the backside of society and a liability to this nation.
    Make sure that next November you vote their boss, Obama out once and for all and let’s take our country back.

  183. Smash Them says:

    The OWS Brat Communists should be smashed by overwhelming force and dumped into large pits.

  184. xenubarb says:

    It’s sad to see how many people have mindlessly bought into corporate media’s portrayal of the Occupy movement as hippies, the great unwashed, people who don’t want jobs.

    You never see the middle aged, middle class couples worried about losing their homes or struggling with retirement, but they’re out there.

    You never see the professionals who come out to stand with the Occupy force in support, but they’re there too.

    Yet, look at all the comments here who are clearly gobbling every misleading nugget the media feeds them.

    They talk about crime, while ignoring the fact that NYPD has been dragging dubious people down to the park, like releasing wolves in the sheep pens.

    They talk about vandalism, ignoring the fact that there are, in fact, provocateurs in the mix, people who always turn out for the fun of burning and smashing.

    You people don’t understand the Occupy movement. Maybe when your financial situation is made more dire by this unholy marriage of corporation and government, you’ll realize that Occupy was right all along, and that you, too, are part of the 99%

    1. A Guy in L.A. says:

      But what they are doing does nothing to change anything. How does sitting in a park change any problem? It is just a communal wish.

  185. TheChairman says:

    Those ‘vendors’ AIDED and ABETTED the ANARCHISTS.

    They reaped their reward, so let them pay the price!

  186. Roob says:

    In the 2nd Lord of the Rings movie at the end of the seige of Helm’s Deep, the enraged Ents march in, envelope and finish off, the fleeing Orcs, leaving no trace of their abhorrent filth. Nice fantasy to imagine having several legions available to move in on each of these OWS sites where our beautiful parks are being decimated and the silent majority’s rights are being trampled upon

  187. Real American says:

    gotta luv the obama sycophants rioting cuz the free stuff came to an end

    this mooch rioting is what America has to look forward to when we cut off all of the mooches after we dump their leader…………oblamo

  188. J.D. says:

    Police: please feel free to mace, beat and/or shoot these sleaze-bag “protestors” with rubber (or real) bullets! These worthless bits of trash are not “the 99%” of anything but the WORST our society has to offer.

  189. perseus317 says:

    The saddest, and most telling of the facts relating to this whole movement, is the fact that some Democrats who are not active participants in the OWS movement, are STILL making excuses for the behavior of these people, and they are ignoring the NUMEROUS incidents of violence and infringements on the rights of everyday citizens. The mentality seems to be, “Anything that WE do is ok because we’re the good guys.” The same type of mentality showed itself earlier in the year in Wisconson, when the unions tried to occupy the capitol building and intimidate legislators. The tactics are reminiscent of those of communist agitators in Europe in the ’50s, where they tried to bring about the downfall of democratically elected governments through violent revolution. President Obama has embraced this OWS movement, and he is now connected to it, whether he likes it or not.

    1. icegold66 says:

      You are so right. I hope these “occupy” protests last until next election day, while visions of violence, rape, and drug use are fresh on the voters’ minds. Obama and some Democrat lawmakers will have some time to waste with their brethern protesters when they’re voted out of office.

  190. gaialover says:

    It was our and we took it. You think you can keep what is the peoples from the people? You capitalist stooges sicken me. WE will bury you and your children will be ours. May Day is coming for YOU!

  192. RTC says:

    The “protesters” obviously contribute nothing to society and will not be missed. Police – shoot to kill!

  193. I C Dumb People says:

    Occupy idiots are a pefect representation of the Demonrat party. Perfect representation of Odummers ideology. A perfect representation of what you get from a Marxist Socialist society. Enjoy!

  194. fecal_heroes says:

    Liberal, Neo-conservative critics of Assembly, and frankly haters of truth and freedom, generally are the very parasites (or useful idiots) feeding on the entrepreneurial, middle class.
    Which explains why the nation’s prayers are with the millions being victimized by Z_onist apparatchiks of the Fed, IMF and World Bank. And with the Anonymous brigade.
    For they know, the bad children and parasites who are proletariat will never admonish the Crony Capitalism feeding their addictions and narcissism. A special interest needful and earnest of all the hearty, steamy excrement patriots can provide. Sh_t and p_ss on, noble flea-baggers!

  195. Wastrel says:

    This is amazing. There are some freeloaders and maybe undercover cops causing trouble there, and all you people have swallowed the police story hook, line and sinker. No wonder this country allows politicians to collect bribes from corporations and PACs and you allow the police to tell you what happened and you believe it. No wonder this country is going down the tubes. What a bunch of half-wits.

  196. califkid says:

    Filthy idiots!!!

  197. Chief says:

    Blood and urine are considered bio-hazard waste, contaminating food in that way could be considered an act of terrorism.

  198. Jen says:

    Seriously? All most of you have to say against the OWS protestors is that they’re socialist/commies/pigs, etc? how about forming some sort of cohesive argument? Half of the charges in these comments aren’t even true; yes, some of these people want handouts and to be bailed out, but that’s not the heart of this movement. They are fighting corruption of corporations. They’re not against corporations on an all or nothing scale. Please educate yourselves before cheaply insulting these people; yeah, money and corruption out of politics and corporations may seem like a pipe dream, but until you actually get off your barker loungers and try, nothing will ever happen. The people who are vandalizing public property should be arrested, but they do not represent the whole. There have been plenty of examples of protestors stepping in and stopping these people as well, but no one has highlighted that.

  199. Blake S. Davis says:

    But it was the right that incites violence – we learned that during the Gabriel Giffords edisode, right?

    The left wing pro-Democrat media is so hypocritical it turns the stomach. Bet this doesn’t get much play outside of this site – this and other violence was OWS – but it’s all the cops right?

    White House planned, ACORN executed OWS is now a big embarrassment. Wait until someone gets really hurt – the media will still blame the right!

  200. M. Usher says:

    I only have 2 questions
    1. Do they street vendors give out free drinks and food to tourist or homeless that look thirsty or hungry?
    2. If the answer is no to the above then why should anyone help these vendors out?
    They chose to do these things so as far as I’m concerned they should find their own way to recover. You lay with them so deal with it.
    I’m an American tired of this BS.

  201. Dano Insd says:

    America’s FINEST City, or was til these rats infested downtown!!
    And don’t forget to support your local union !!

    Maybe when we spray this infestation they can clear out city hall too!!
    Looking at you Mr. Sanders and Mrs. Dumanis!

  202. CT says:

    Remember what Totus said…”We are the ones we have been waiting for.” IF this is true, looking at the urine and poop throwers, our country is going in a downward direction.

  203. David Kopelman says:

    It must be fun to blame entire civilizations (as that is what is turning out in the street: communists, nazis, Tea Partiers, Leftists, moderates, moms, old people, basically every spectrum) for the insane criminal actions of a few teenagers who are not really part of the reason that 10’s of 1000’s are marching around angry. Associating this violence with the “movement” is certainly a good rationalization, although since these vandals didn’t receive any direction from a committee, it would be hard to prove the statement that “because everyone is angry and marching around peacefully, these kids became criminally violent.” Really, the issues are dire, folks are starving (latest reports suggest 1/6 Americans lives UNDER the poverty line.), and this very calm series of demonstrations is NOTHING like the class warfare being experienced in say ENGLAND or GREECE! Just google “Greek Violence” or “English Riots” and you can see some REAL anger and violence, as opposed to our VERY civilized protesters!

  204. IVillageIdiot says:

    NOW… imagine that scaled up to an entire Nation!

    “You stopped the Freebies!?!??!?”…. we smash, smash, smash, and thrash….

    THAT(!) is what the welfare state is DESIGNED to do! You hook them up with freebies, acclimate them to the supply, then you cut them off from self-sufficiency, and… then you throttle it up and down like the Engine of Discontentment that it is. When you want to use that “engine” to attack the opposition, you claim they are cutting it’s fuel (the freebies) off. When you want to threaten a riot if you don’t get your way, you curtail the fuel yourself and blame the opposition for its loss. When you’re ready to pull the target Nation DOWN!…. You cut the fuel completely and let it overheat and explode.

    YOU PEOPLE….. need to wake up…..



  205. pyeatte says:

    What spoiled, worthless punks – if it’s not free….wow. When you have a rat problem the first thing is “stop feeding them”.

  206. Cranios says:

    Wait a second… I thought CBS was a liberal news organization. Why are they publishing stories like this, that make libs look bad?


  211. craigmk1974 says:

    Wow, you do something nice by giving these people free food and this is how you are treated? What a bunch of animals. There is no doubt now what this protest is about. It’s about getting freebies and living off other people’s generosity. When the freebies stop, these people will turn on you in the blink of an eye.

  212. J Newt says:

    This is what happens when you stop agreeing with someone who wants a free ride!
    A lesson I hope for the sake and safety of our president is not lost on the Secrete Service!
    Don’t get in bed with Bed bugs you may wind up with a itch you cannot scratch, arrest these Fools now before somebody really gets hurt, other than the Protestors!

  213. Nunya says:

    I want to personally thank every liberal and Democrat who is attending or supporting these ‘protests’. You have personally illustrated two points, one, socialism/communism never works and this is the by product. Two, You really do fit the useful idiot model.

    Thank you again for showing with actions and words exactly what you all really want. You have done more for the conservative movement than we ourselves could have. God bless and stay safe.

  214. TexasRick says:

    This is starting to remind of all those violent, Tea Party rallies where the participants left tons of trash in their wake, vandalized private property, abused drugs and showed nothing but contempt for the rule of law and just about everything else that didn’t fit their idea of a socialist utopian state…….oh wait a minute…..No, it doesn’t.

  215. JohnRalph says:

    Obama’s brand of socialism, which is an amalgamation of the Nationalist and Communist varieties despises America.

    Except Islamic America, which is an excellent example of both types since it is a religion that through Sharia Law controls every aspects of one’s life. Virtually enslaving the believer.

    National SOCIALIST German WORKERS Party, referred to in English as the NAZI Party (socialism for the German ‘Teutonic’ Race), In reality though no different than the left’s socialism.

    Like Stalin, for the white Russians, or Pol Pot, for the Khmer Rouge, or Ho Chi Minh, for the Viet Minh, or Mao, for the Han Chinese.

    Socialist Gods that brought death and misery to tens if not hundreds of millions of humans.

    Let us not forget our SOCIALIST God, Mein Lord God High Führer Obama, for America’s liberal elite, Muslims, OWS and welfare voters on the dole.

  219. Gwen Marsh says:

    It’s well past time to get these vermin off the streets. Where are the rights of innocent people whom they are now terrorizing? The authorities should turn fire hoses on these union funded,Soros funded, Communist funded Occupiers and chase them away, it wouldn’t hurt to add a little soap with that water also.

  220. Frank Sullivan says:

    The Coffee Cart lady is my friend. What happened to her was unthinkable. They were followed and threatened by these thugs. Do you know how many homeless call her their friends? She feeds the homeless every day and especially the children, hot coco, milk and food bar and never charges them. She has helped place homeless in safe homes. She has shown me pictures of what these people did to her and her business and it was everything we could do to not take the laws in to our own hands. They want to blame it on the homeless, when the homeless love her. REALLY

  221. Daryl says:

    This is the behavior you should expect when you foment a culture of entitlement. You Californians seemed surprised but don’t be when you run out of money for entitlements and end up paying police more to protect you from the hordes

  222. CR says:

    “Coffee cart owner Linda Jenson and hot dog cart operators Letty and Pete Soto said they initially provided free food and drink to demonstrators, but when they stopped, the protesters became violent.”

    So, you started out by being generous but ended up attracting malcontents with an entitlement complex. No wonder they got angry when the free lunch stopped; you owe it to them!, at least in their own warped minds. BTW, does anyone wonder why piles of droppings usually start collecting on your porch when you hang up a bird feeder?

  223. jim says:

    Should we be surprised by such actions? ‘Occupy’ is a bunch of socialist loons who refuse to work and EXPECT handouts. Don’t get their way? They act like that which they are – lunatics.

    Liberalism is a mental disorder. Proof? The whole ‘Occupy’ movement. Very sad.

  224. F8cTheTruth says:

    So what did the vendor think would happen? When a pig becomes hungry it will become violent it will even eat its young. I hope more and more people understand that a hand out is not the American Dream. The American Dream exceeds $250,000. The American Dream is to work hard and attain all that you want. The American Dream is for all legal immigrants and citizens. The American Dream is what the whole world wants. We are exceptional!

    Proverbs 28:19 “He who works his land will have abundant food, but the one who chases fantasies will have his fill of poverty.”

    Great job, CBS Local. You really got your facts together.

    Thanks for helping Fox News and Matt Drudge keep our nation stupid by issuing this Carl DeMaio press release masquerading as a news article.

    Not that any of the Matt Drudge mouth-breathers will read these comments, but those carts were damaged by homeless people, not Occupy protestors.

    This is yellow journalism at its worst, and I sincerely hope someday that the author of this garbage will suffer the same kind of baseless defamation and slander.

  231. Bob says:

    These protests are just an excuse for mentally deranged people to get together and terrorize.

  232. Jimmy Durant says:

    What irony. It has finally come down to proving that its not wealth that corrupts and corrodes, but pure human nature. The people who truly believe in their cause of reforming society and corporations are being overshadowed by that which essentially they despise-depravity. Not all corporations or executives or those well-off are filled with deviance, and not all Occupiers are pure at heart. Go back home, Occupiers, and regroup, run for office, start a business, or something that will actively and positively affect this nation. Your time has expired and our tolerance is waning.

  233. CB says:

    here is a quick and easy way to stop all this foolishness with the “occupy” garbage… arrest these morons, throw them in jail with a $50,000 bail, and you will see how quickly the rest of the idiots go home and forget about this foolishness

  234. mbs says:

    I thought the OWSers had collected 3/4 of a million dollars in donations, why can’t they pay for the damage they caused?

  235. Frank Sullivan says:

    What the best part of all of this is, is the narcissistic idiots filmed everything they did via facebook and livestream and posted away and videoed every single horrible thing they have done and now they want to sue for police brutality? Every single law they broke, every time they destroyed property, spit in cops faces, blew pot smoke in their faces, had sex in public, raped, stabbed and vandalized they recorded it. Dumb doesn’t even describe these fools.

  239. Chris512 says:

    Wow, talk about a microcosm of the liberal mindset. Give somebody something for free a couple times trying to be nice and they expect to get it free forever. Take it away and they become violent and spew hatred and vitriol at the person that tried to help. Entitlements anyone?

  240. Molly Kelly says:

    This is what happened. At a San Diego Council meeting a woman who operates a cart spoke up against the occupation and held up 2 pictures briefly showed a stained cart. They were probably from a report she made about the homeless a couple of years before. Recent pictures and videos of her cart show no such staining and the police have been ever present since day one of the occupation. She did not file another police report. The San Diego City Council and the people of San Diego are assisting her and another cart so they should not be fearful. My real question at this time is why this story was not vetted as it is a highly exagerated version and not the truth.

    in response to a comment by Matteau Blythe:

    “Most of the people at occupy have jobs, school or both…personally I’m a full time student at SDSU. That’s why the numbers are few during the day and grow at night and on the weekends. You have no idea who we are. I’d like to invite you to come down and talk to some of […]”

    So then you have jobs and are going to school, what are you protesting? ows fools keep saying their protesting “crony capitialism” but all i ever see is communists and marxists protesting capitialism and demanding more of the crony for them. quit saying we dont know what ows is about! we see the hammer and sickle signs and the anti capitialist slogans. we hear the anti american anti capitialist words being chanted by rich kids in che shirts. we see the acts of vandalism and the arrest reports and the kids oD’ing, the robey and rapes and destruction of private property because they stopped giving you free stuff. you have been out there close to 2 months now and yet you have absolutly no single coherant message about what you want and what your solutions are. but then you want to cry foul when the messages of hate and communism, racism, violence and anti-semitism that saturate your movement get out. as i said americans ,,,real americans KNOW what OWS is about. you are just mad that the secret is out before you could gain real power. face it if your pathetic movement had any real force and real resonance with americans they would have left the safe confines of socialist and liberal dominated cities in favor of areas that have opposing views and spread. but all you did was get a few thousand commies and anarch-statists to poop on a cop car, destroy hard working peoples busineeses and go camping. any positive message OWS may have had has long gone. politicians who support them will be gone too as will busineeses. keep pressing their luck ows will get their butts handed to them by the Real Americans who are smarter, stronger, and better armed and out number ows loosers 1000 to 1

    These kids – the demonstrators – have been had by Obama!

  249. Diggs says:

    If you are providing free food to the occupiers, then you are sympathizing with them. When they inevitably turn on you because you don’t meet their requirements (by the way, it’s impossible to forever meet the requirements of people whose requirements continually increase), don’t complain. You were feeding the beast when it was friendly, expect to be eaten by the beast when it is not.

    Is there somewhere I can go to donate woolens and battery-powered heaters to get them through the Winter up North?

  252. JR says:

    Someone gave you free stuff because they were being nice. Then they stopped giving you free stuff because they can’t keep doing it so….OSD kills their cart and their ability to make a living.

    I don’t believe that there is any possible explanation that explains that other than that they’re a bunch of jerks. Unless they mistook the hot dog cart guy for a banker? @@

    Seriously, grow up and own your movement. It’s not what you think that it should be, it’s exactly what it literally IS.

  253. Aaron Gretsinger says:

    The attitudes expressed in the comments here, particularly those advocating the indiscriminate arrest/imprisonment or assault against protesters, have further eroded my respect for America.

      so the comments here are bad, but protestors destroying private property, public defication, attacking people who helped them with urine, rape, robery not to mention their overall message of antisemitism, racism, communism and the destruction of America is ok with you? something tells me you never had respect for America to begin with, so your ‘eroded respect’ is not important or shocking. hey perhaps if they win and communism takes over mabye they will get it right…sure 120 million people are dead because of communism and marxism. not to mention the opressed, but hey mabye the rich kid with the che shirt and iphone and BMW 5 series crying how opressed he is because he has to pay back loans he willingly took out to get a phd in womens studies has it all figured out huh?

    2. Chris says:

      Assult or arrest to protesters only if they chose to break the law then they need to be arrested but other wise I would say that people need to protect themselves from azz clowns that would damage and injure people that are just doing their business and those people should repel attackers with violence like the good old doubble tap to the chest.

    “What’s happening in Oakland is a logical exercise in class solidarity: The government class enthusiastically backing the breakdown of civil order is making common cause with the leisured varsity class, the thuggish union class, and the criminal class in order to stick it to what’s left of the beleaguered productive class. It’s a grand alliance of all those societal interests that wish to enjoy in perpetuity a lifestyle they are not willing to earn.”

    I thought it was illegal immigrant voting that did it. I was soooo mad and did all this independent research… painstakingly. When it was all done I looked and the three most hispanic populous counties voted AGAINST Brown. It wasnt illegal immigrant conspiracy…. it was lack of votes. By my calcs only like 15% of the population voted and the margin between Brown and opponent not that great. If so few people vote we get what we deserve. 🙁

    1. jason zeidler says:

      thats easy to explain. the vendors were supportive and were giving free food for OWS. then they stopped and thats when the lil kids attacked. Understand OWS is not about jobs or crony capitialism. Its about destroying capitialism and wealth redistribution. They dont want jobs thats been proven a few times by people who went dont with application and were met with hostility. these are not even opressed people. most are ivy legue college kids from well off families mixed in with marxists and communists. These are hardcore leftists and anarchists looking to destroy the system. Thats why they attack. when you feed the wolves and run out of food then you become the steak.

    At the bottom of your story, Occupy Wall Street protesters “pushed an elderly woman down a flight of stairs” and you link to a video on Fox, that comes from some site called ‘Weasel Zippers’ that says that it shows OWS protesters violently pushing the woman — the actual video shows a cop pushing the elderly woman down the stairs at just after 0:22.

    Probably should review any videos you get from ‘Weasel Zippers’ in the future before you accept what ‘Weasel Zippers’ says the video shows.
